When our work led us to relocate to the Chicago area, where we knew virtually no one, we faced a daunting list of challenges. Rachel Dunnill came to our attention through routine house hunting on the Dreamland website. Appointing her as our realtor was the most important and advantageous decision we made in our move. Along the way, which ended up being an exhausting yearlong journey, she proved to be a stable, patient and encouraging force in our lives. Because we lived on the other side of the continent we needed her to carry an unusually heavy load for us, including finding houses, mortgage firms and brokers, a lawyer, a compatible builder, and an ideal community in which to live. She won our trust and respect because she was a good listener who grasped fully what we wanted, an optimist who avoided groundless good cheer. We found her work ethic to be of the highest order and her breadth of knowledge of the juggernaut which is Chicagoland, precisely what we required. When it came time to close, she demonstrated a courage, tack, loyalty, and determination that left us awed (and many thousands of dollars better off than we anticipated). In short, she was a first rate realtor. For these reasons alone we would commend her, but our circumstances meant that we had to trust her with information, documents, and decisions one would normally reserve for a lawyer. She demonstrated scrupulous integrity and was completely trustworthy a model of the highest professional ethics. For her character as well as her competence, we commend her unreservedly.
