Just like Goldilocks, you’ll want to work with a real estate agent who’s “Just Right!”.
Not too old (and stuck in her ways)
Not too young (and learning how to write a contract)
Just right – years of experence, hundreds of sale, and still nimble and flexible to ensure success.
Continuing Education is a state requirement for licensed real estate agents, but only the top 1-2% have the education and success to call themselves Certified Real Estate Specialists (CRS).
Anne’s designations include
Council of Residential Brokerage Managers (CRB)
Certified Real Estate Specialist (CRS), GREEN, Senior Real Estate Specialist
Moving can be one of the most stressful experiences of one’s life.
Add on the life-changing situation that prompts it (marriage, divorce, babies, aging…) and emotions are at peak levels.
Of course you want someone with a proven track record.
# of Sales – Average Market Times – Sales Price
Recognition from clients and peers.
These are all signs of success and reassurance that you’re making a wise hiring choice.
This is My Story
I love historic properties (and helping clients get property tax freeze benefits when they renovate), helping parents navigate the Chicago school system (public and private), and guiding seniors (50+) with real estate choices – downsizing, second homes/investments, aging in place…
My husband and I have raised our 3 kids in the city – we’ve lived in the South Loop, Gold Coast, and Ravenswood, but we’ve lived in Andersonville (Lakewood Balmoral District) for 14 years. The kids have been in both private and public schools — Thomas graduated from Payton, Michael will graduate this spring from Jones College Prep, and after 2 years at Lane, Lizzie is now at the Global Citizenship Experience. Our Labradoodle, Dewey, is now 9 years old.
