Testimonials

  • Kelly offers more than just advice on finding a home; she brings to the table years of valuable experience that we felt was unparalleled by all other realtors we interviewed. My wife and I were looking for a home to fit us but we needed a realtor to offer advice not only based on our needs and personality, but insight on neighborhoods and long term investment potential. Whether you're a first time home owner (like us) or an experienced buyer/seller, Kelly is an incredibly talented realtor that you would be fortunate to work with. Kelly took all the hassle and worry out of buying a home and made us feel like we had done it all before. Kelly spent the time to pay attention to our needs, and used her skill to track down a house that has now become our home; and that in itself is priceless!

    Thanks Kelly!

  • Kelly did an outstanding job for us. She was very familiar with all the areas downtown and knew exactly what we were looking for. She has a great personality and was really fun to work with. We never felt pressured to make a decision, but when we were ready, she moved very quickly and efficiently closed our deal. We would not hesitate to recomend Kelly and would call her first if we ever want to sell or look again downtown. Kelly was great!

  • Lauren: I believe your strength is a keen knowledge of the market from neighborhood to neighborhood, and of the buying process from soup to nuts. Working with you is like having a great tour guide in a foreign country. I look forward to working with you again.

  • Recently, my husband and I moved from the city to a new townhouse in Hoffman Estates. We were lucky enough to work with Rick Panlilio. He was an excellent communicator and advocate through the renting and association process. He gave frequent updates as well as encouragement when needed. He went out of his way to come at night or early in the morning, and even with extra paperwork to assure no details were forgotten. Weeks later, he was thoughtful enough to check in how the new place was so far. Even in the most difficult situations, I was reassured to know Rick was going to help us through it all. I could not thank him enough for all his time and effort.

  • I recently completed a condo transaction with Dream Town and wanted to write you regarding the agent I was working with, Lauren Shimmon. As I am sure you are aware, she is a great agent. Specifically, in my transaction she really is the reason that the sale got back on track and she ensured the deal got done. We were dealing with an extremely difficult seller and Lauren stay focused through the whole transaction wearing many hats. She even educated the sellers realtor on how a real estate transaction should flow as he was less experienced. I can't thank her enough for going above and beyond in this transaction. She was constantly available to reassure me that she would get this done and she did. Also, the seller is a non real estate lawyer and tried to represent herself in the transaction which added another layer of complexity.

     I now have a great place to live and none of this would have happened unless Lauren was my agent. I'm not sure if there are any special write ups or awards that Lauren would be eligible for but this was an extremely difficult transaction on multiple levels, and I would like to nominate Lauren for this. Being a manager myself I know it's extremely difficult to find people that will work this hard for your organization and go above and beyond like Lauren did. I can't thank Lauren enough for all her help.

  • Lauren was incredibly helpful with the sale of my condo. A quick sale was important to me and she had a comprehensive plan from day one. Her extensive knowledge of the condo building, neighborhood, and market proved to be a valuable asset as well. Overall, I had a great experience with Lauren and would recommend her to anyone looking to sell in Chicago.
