Customer Testimonial

Ernesto Camarillo

Buyer Rating:

This is my second time working with Ernesto Camarillo. His professionalism, expertise, humility and sense of humor stood out from the initial encounter and definitely carried forward into this second transaction. Not only would I work with Senor Camarillo again, I would not even consider working with anyone else as long as he is available. I have already recommended my family members and friends to Ernesto for their housing needs. - Richard Chrisopher S, Ch January 2018

Ron Alvarez was great to work with he was there when we needed, we were just buying a condo, but he treated us as if we were buying multi million dollar home. He is a great agent, and to have him on our side. - John, Brenda, And Alli P November 2017

Catherine Mossler

Buyer Rating:

Cathy is family oriented and that shows immediately as you talk to her. She is very familiar with the area and was able to advise us about schools which was very important for our family.

She is a very positive, pleasant, professional person and I wouldn't hesitate reaching out to her again or recommending her to all my friends and family. - Simona Pop, Glenview October 2017

Michael Di Giovanni

Buyer Rating:

Working with Michael exceeded any of my expectations. He had just sold my mom's house and we needed to find a new place for her to live in right away. He was willing to meet us late in the evening or anytime that was convenient for us. He showed us many properties and always thought outside the box. After showing us mostly condos and figuring it's not the right fit for my mother, he started looking at one level town-homes. After finding the right town home, he worked very hard to get us the price we were comfortable with. He was very helpful in explaining the entire process and really relieved our stress level even though we were on a very tight time frame. I truly believe his expertise helped tremendously in our offer getting accepted. I highly recommend Michael! - Alla Berkun, Glenview Il October 2017

Rita Bhojwani

Buyer Rating:

There are so many reasons why Rita was such an amazing Agent for us. Her meticulous nature and knowledgeable approach to purchasing our home enabled us to attain the home of our dreams. Rita was not concerned with a quick sale, but rather was most concerned about us making a good decision based on our budget and the home we were purchasing. Our purchase took a few months to find, but RIta was patient with us and was more concerned that we find a perfect home for us. She is amazing. Her knowledge about inspection, legalities with home purchase, mortgage financing, all helped my husband and incredibly as we were purchasing our first home. She was present and willing at all times, and brought up all red flags and concerns she had when searching for properties. She went above and beyond the call of duty to get us the home of our dreams. - Anita Bucio, Glenview September 2016

She is equipped with the proper knowledge to do this job and to it to full capacity. Thanks a million, Nancy! - Marija Milic, Park Ridge August 2016
