Shavon Hale

Buyer Rating:

Shavon Hale was absolutely amazing! I contacted her after having a not so great experience with a different agent. Upon contacting Shavon and letting her know what my needs were and informing her of my previous experience, she assured me that she would be able to help me and that she understood my concerns based on the things I shared with her. We started the search immediately after conversing and Shavon proved to be very knowledgable regarding the real estate business. She was always available to answer any questions I had during the entire home buying process, Even if she couldn't answer right then she would send me a text letting me know that she received my call and would get back to me. She was there every step of the way, from the first phone call to the closing table. I can't drive enough on how phenomenal she is at what she does but the best thing about my experience with Shavon was how caring and understanding she was throughout this ordeal. I'm looking forward to working with Shavon again in the very near future and will be sending anyone I know who is looking to purchase property her way. - Dominique, Chicago July 2017

Genie Birch

Buyer Rating:

Genie represented us (the buyers) in what turned out to be a complicated sale. So many seller complications came up that threatened to kill the purchase time and time again and again. Through it all, Genie was very levelheaded and supportive. She understood our needs and did everything she possibly could- more than would ever be expected of her to help make it happen. We could not be happier. Thank you Genie.

Just truly an amazing experience working with Genie.

Always easily accessible. Even while out of the country Genie stayed on top of the situation and we were kept informed. - Moriel, Chicago Il June 2017

Edmond Dawid

Seller Rating:

Edmond Dawid has a very courteous personality. He is very knowledgeable. He always provided his feedback on certain things, but let us make the decision on what would be the best solution to the problem. His communication skill is outrageous. He called, texted and emailed me and advised me of any updates.

Even though I was represented by an attorney, after he found me the buyer, he was still in contact with me to make sure any communication between he and the attorney was relayed to me. I really appreciate all of his hard work and effort in trying to help me sell my property. - Nicole Ishay- Skokie Il May 2017

Kristen Kardas

Seller Rating:

From start to finish Century 21 (via Kristen Kardas) handled our business negotiations very professionally and competently. She and this realty come HIGHLY recommended!

Real estate transactions have become more complex than ever since the real estate crash several years back. To have someone like Kristen Kardas, who can cut through the myriad layers of stipulations and conditions and circumstances with clarity and efficiency, is a tremendous help and reassurance to inexperienced clients such as ourselves (who seldom relocate except once every 20 years or so).

Kristen Kardas is top-notch in her ability to navigate the complex waters of home sales and purchases. She makes the process user-friendly and customized to the buyer or seller needs. we know this because we worked with her in both connections with two different properties. She was always thorough, competent, and professional throughout all aspects of both transactions.

Since Kristen Kardas is herself a broker and office manager, we really did not have any direct dealings with other office staff or personnel. Somehow Kristen managed to work us in around her already very busy schedule, and we never felt like she was inaccessible. - Bill & Cristie, Evanston March 2015
