“Where to even begin…Olivia and Paul were AWESOME. I had never owned or even attempted to own property before and knew pretty much next to nothing about the process. I had been considering buying a condo in the city for at least two years and figured it was time to actually see what was out there. I was referred to Olivia and Paul and was NOT disappointed. They did the most amazing job of making me feel like I was their number one priority even though it was their busy season and they had numerous other clients. (No joke, they made themselves available 24/7 to answer my every little question and to give me feedback on my every little thought.) Due directly to their persistence, dedication, and ability to relate/understand what I was looking for, I was able to find a place in just over a month. I used the mortgage lender they referred me to as well as the lawyer they referred me to and was once again not disappointed. They made what can be a long and complicated process completely painless. I am obsessed with my new condo and just as equally obsessed with this whole team of people. HIGHLY recommend to a friend. Thank you thank you, Olivia, Paul, and team!!” – J. Russell

We are in love with our new home!” – Rachael C. and Ryan S.

“The best. All there is to say! Had our place ready to show immediately and everything was so professional it’s not hard to understand why our place sold in a matter of the hours that it did! As for our home buying experience on the other end, she always had us a step ahead of the game to make sure we were prepared for everything from the lending process to the walk through to the closing. Thank you, Olivia!” – John P.

There aren’t enough thank you’s to express my gratitude! I would highly recommend Olivia and her team with At Properties. Thank you!” – Hannah P.

“Olivia has represented us as both our buying and listing agent. She was easy to work with, very responsive, and had great strategies to apply to both buying and selling.

“Olivia is a 5 star realtor who truly has her clients best interest! Great to work with!!” – Bonnie K.

“Olivia was great to work with. She had great experience with the neighborhood and was able to use that to move the property. I tried 3 other times to sell with not one offer. Olivia was able to get an offer and close the deal after one showing! She also has a great eye for staging so I’d recommend you let her do that as well to sell the place. It was great working with Olivia and I’d recommend her to anyone!” – Joe M.

“Olivia was amazing! We listed our property and bought a new property all within a short period of time. She worked diligently to secure the price we needed, which she got and negotiated a price well below the appraised value of the new property we found. Her knowledge in the market, accountability and responsiveness was second to none. She is highly recommended in my book!” –  Ryan and Anne S.

“Olivia assisted me in buying and selling my home. Overall it was great a experience. She really has a great knowledge of the market/ trends. I was very impressed by her professionalism and high energy. Also she never pressured me into anything which was great. When it came to selling my house she was amazing and had it sold within minutes of putting it on the market. Overall I would highly recommend her!” – Nick C.

“Olivia was fantastic throughout the entire process; everything from making the decision to actually sell, determining which “fix it” projects should be done, even helping with a last minute cleaning session before a drop-in appointment…Olivia was such a huge support to us. She was well-organized, very detail oriented, and put up with all our questions no matter what time of day it was. She even got us money back from property taxes back from 2010 (miracle worker right there…)! We loved working with Olivia and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any of our friends.” – Kristen S.

“Olivia was great to work with and was always very professional and friendly. She always went above and beyond our expectations and anyone would be lucky to have her as their realtor.”  -Todd S.

“Olivia was on top of everything. She knew the market well and really helped me ‘manage’ our expectations. She also did an excellent job showing our condo—she has a great “eye”. She provided several market analyses, at different times, which helped us get a clear picture of what to expect. She goes out of her way to provide accurate information and does not sugar-coat the reality—very refreshing. She was on top of our listing at all times and because of her efforts we were able to secure a buyer sooner than expected. Lets face it, the buyer liked Olivia better than their own Realtor! Olivia did an outstanding job and exceeded our expectations.”   –Michelle P.

“Olivia provides a professional and pleasant buying experience with timely responses and up to date market. She is patient and worked with me to find a unit that met my somewhat unrealistic expectations. There was also never any pressure to increase offer prices, as she understood my budget.” –Anthony L.

“Olivia makes every client feel valued, respected and more than confident that she will deliver when she promises and exceed expectations on a consistent basis. She is reliable, dependable and a pleasure to work with. Olivia can always be counted on to do the ethical thing, make the right decision and lead by example in all aspects of her life.” –Christina S.

“Olivia guided me through my first home purchase with ease! She explained everything clearly and I always felt like she cared most about getting me into the right place—regardless of how long it took!” –Heather B.

“We have known Olivia as an Interior Designer and Architectural Products Sales Representative, so when it was time to select a realtor for our relocation to Chicago, she was a natural choice. Her educational coupled with her knowledge of the city, Olivia was able to decipher our social and architectural wish list and showed us options to meet all of our needs. Not only is she pleasant and easy to work with, but also her innate understanding of our requests made the stressful process of finding a new home an enjoyable experience.” –Robin B.

“From start to finish, Olivia delivered. Her tireless work and relentless attitude was the only way our deal was going to come together and she made it happen. Whether it was early in the morning or late at night (or both!), Olivia was always full of energy and joy—it was contagious. I would encourage anyone looking to buy or sell to work with Olivia!” –Sam M.
