Joanne used her knowledge, talent & expert advice to help us get top dollar for our house. After trying last year & being completely disappointed with the appraisal results, Joanne was so patient with us when we decided to wait another year. She worked with us over that time - when other realtors would've forgotten about us - and with her expertise, helped us complete some needed updates on our home. She explained where we should use our money and what would give us the best results. Our appraisal came in today....$48,000 HIGHER THAN LAST YEAR! Joanne, we can't thank you enough!

I consider myself very lucky to have come across Chicagoland Realty Group. I've used them for the purposes of property management and sales of my properties. On all occasions, I have received a prompt response. If there are any issues with the properties, I am made aware very promptly. Otherwise, their service is very seamless. In addition every year during tax season, their systematic record keeping helps me tremendously on managing my returns.

From the very first time we contacted Emerson to buy a home he was there to help us every step of the way. He took us to homes that were under our budget and homes that were over our budget just to get an idea of what we wanted on our wish list. He never rushed us and always got answers to our questions. We can't say enough good things about Emerson and will definately use him again should we need to sell and buy another home

      We had AmeriPol Home & Building Inspection conduct our Inspection my husband who is a contractor was very impressed with Andy’s overall knowledge and his Architectural back ground which he possesses. We were looking to purchase and flip with Andy’s extensive knowledge in Architectural design; building technology, construction materials and inspection methods have saved us thousands. In my opinion there is no better qualified inspector in Chicago land! the attention he gives to every detail was impeccable; he cost itemized everything on site and generated the report next day with the highest level of detail. He spent hours on site and left nothing in question about the condition of our new investment. Andy is very knowledgeable about building methods he left us with peace of mind. Most importantly, his Architectural Degree in Design and back ground as builder/owner use of building materials and construction practices is very extensive. We felt very secure with his thorough observations and assessments. We recommend him to all our friends! Maggie from Glendale Heights.

        Working with Nadine was an amazing experience. She took the time to understand what I was interested in and committed herself to finding properties that met my needs. Nadine would not give up until she found the ideal place for me. She has a caring personality and truly cares about her clients. I couldn't have dreamed of finding a realtor as great as Nadine. I currently live on the property Nadine found for me and I couldn't be happier!

          About

          I am delighted to give an explanation of what I do. Perhaps, the best way to describe it is with a quick story. Jeff and Karen, after a long agonizing journey of time and events had finally got their late mother's home ready to find a new owner. Bill and Anne, a young married couple who were living with family members were looking for the perfect home in the perfect location to start their family. The buyers came to me with high anticipation that I can help them after being referred to me by someone we knew. We determined exactly what their specific criteria was and then set out to find it. It was my pleasure to help both the buyer and the seller through the overwhelming process of overseeing the team of 43 professionals involved to complete their respective job to get to closing. And that's what I do - I make dreams come true. I'm a real estate consultant. I serve Kendall County, Illinois.

          Q & A

          Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

          What does a real estate agent do?

          Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

          • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
          • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
          • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
          • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
          • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
          • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
          • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
          • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
          • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
          • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

          What's the difference between a real estate broker and an agent?

          Real estate agents and real estate brokers both help clients buy, sell, and rent residential and commercial properties. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own real estate businesses. Real estate agents cannot have their own real estate office and must work under a broker. Real estate brokers often have real estate firms and employ real estate agents. Those real estate agents may be employees of the firm, or they may work on contract and earn part of any commission they bring into the firm.

          If you are a homeowner ready to sell or a buyer in the market for a new home, either a real estate broker or a real estate agent can help you achieve your goal. What is more important than their title is their track record and client success stories. When interviewing real estate agents or brokers to help you buy or sell a home, ask about their recent sales history as compared with the original listing prices. If you’re selling a home, ask how they would market your home and what price they would list it at. Whether you hire an agent or broker, you want a professional who will have your best interests at heart.

          What should you look for in a real estate agent?

          When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

          Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

          What do real estate agents charge?

          Real estate agents typically don’t charge a set rate to their clients, but rather earn a commission on the price of the final home sale. In traditional real estate, there is a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. The two agents receive 5 percent to 6 percent of the final home sale price and split it evenly, meaning they each earn roughly 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the total home sale. If you are a home seller, you may have fees associated with the sale that are above and beyond the commission the agents earn. The real estate agent may have you pay marketing fees, MLS fees, early cancellation fees, or more. Always ask pricing details before signing a contract so you clearly understand your financial obligations. Here are some of the average (and common) costs that can arise when selling a home:

          • Home inspection: $200-$350 or more, depending on region.
          • Home appraisal: $250-$400 or more, depending on region.
          • Professional real estate photography: $275-$550 or more, depending on photographer, square footage of house, and special requests like sunset shots.
          • Closing costs: Often split between the seller and buyer. An average range for the buyer to pay is between 3 percent and 4 percent, with the seller paying a lower fee at 1 percent to 3 percent of the home’s price.
          Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
