"Liz was great! She really knows the Chicago market well. Liz is super responsive and easy to make plans with to see homes. As first time home buyers, she was patient with us as we saw many places and never pushed us into a home. Liz also gave us tips on things that we would have never thought of (making sure the building was all brick for maintenance purposes) or known to look for in buildings and homes. She definitely made the experience fun and exciting. She still checks in to see how we are doing!"
"Liz was the perfect mix of professionalism, salesmanship, and approachability. She gave honest feedback throughout the entire time we worked together (both on the buying and selling side), was very knowledgeable about the process as well as our the areas we were looking in, and never tried to push us toward anything we weren't comfortable with. I would work with her again in a heartbeat!"
"Liz knows the local Chicago area, being a college graduate here, and living in the city. She is familiar with the condo market, and with how the condo homeowner associations work. She is responsive, honest and to the point. We will work with her again when we list our property and upgrade to another home."
"Liz has helped me buy two homes, as well as rent one of them out. In all cases, she patiently walked me through the process and answered any questions I had. I felt comfortable and like I was her only client even though I know I wasn't! Would strongly recommend Liz!"
Liz is very professional and efficient. She is not a "dabbler" and takes her job seriously. As a first-time buyer, I was not as knowledgeable as I should have been, and Liz walked me through the steps. Maybe I should say "ran" - her energy is amazing!
Liz is great, she worked with us daily to buy our first home in Chicago last fall. She knew all the neighborhoods and was willing to work hard to find the best place for us. I highly recommend her, she is punctual, straight forward and a tough negotiator. She knows the market. She's also very personable and fun to be around, which made house hunting fun! We've recommended her to our friends and when we decide to move again, Liz will be the first person I call.
I have used Liz Whatley for both selling AND buying, and I highly recommend her for both. She knows the market, she's tough, and she's a straight shooter who will tell clients what they need to hear even if it isn't necessarily what they may want to hear (which is something I really appreciate given the proclivity of so many realtors to "blow smoke"). Her follow-through and commitment to building client relationships over the long term are truly exceptional. And she is PUNCTUAL! In fact I really can't think of any downsides. With Liz you really can't go wrong.
Liz really focused on my needs in helping me find a really awesome home in Chicago. She was very thorough, helpful, fun and also business-focused during the entire home search and purchase process. I highly recommend Liz
Liz is an excellent realtor. Her knowledge of the market and market conditions is exceptional and her expertise is second to none. She works hard and takes pride in her listings. She goes the extra mile to get a property sold. From listing to closing, Liz is there throughout the entire process and she continues to work until the closing is over.
"There are a lot of realtors who got into the profession because they didn't know what else to do with themselves. Liz Whatley is NOT one of those. For Liz the profession is obviously a calling -- something that she has a true aptitude for. Her skill and professionalism are truly impressive; her instincts are right on the mark. She is consistently 5 to 15 minutes early for appointments. She is straight-talking and not afraid to tell a client exactly what the client must do to sell a home, even if it's something that the client might not want to hear. She knows how to negotiate the very best price (whether representing you as a buyer or seller) and is NOT going to recommend under-pricing a property just to improve her chances of making a sale and earning a commission. At the same time, if the client's (whether buyer or seller) expectations are unreasonable she will tell you. If Liz feels that she cannot sell your property, for whatever reason, she will tell you, and will even assist you in locating a different realtor who may be a better match. Buying or selling a home involves huge financial risk and commitment, and it is important to have a realtor one can trust. I trust, and strongly recommend, Liz Whatley."

"Working with Liz is a pleasure. My wife and I have bought with her three times now and sold twice. Liz takes the time to understand your needs and do her homework to the extent that we bought on the first day out with her... twice. Liz knows her way around different neighborhoods, but if you do get into a market outside of her expertise, she's so focused on your best interests that she'll find another realtor to help you out. All of the referrals I have sent to Liz have had great experiences."

"Liz is a true professional--she took time to understand exactly what we were looking for and only showed us places that truly met our criteria. If we were to sell today we would want her as our agent. She help us sell both our old places and find a new place and her advice at all stages of this was perfect."

"We recently went through our first home-buying experience with Liz and we have nothing but great things to say about her abilities and knowledge of the industry. We were incredibly 'green' to the entire process and she did an excellent job of answering our tedious questions and filling us in on local neighborhoods.
Liz has a strong background in the Chicago market, and we recognized this immediately. Overall, she did a great job of adapting to our specific genre of real estate and showing us dozens of places before we found the right fit.
We will certainly use Liz for any future purchases or the reselling of our home. Buying a home in Chicago can be a grueling process and Liz made it a pleasurable experience and worked hard to achieve our goals as a family."

"Liz is extremely knowledgeable of the market. In addition, she is a very good and empathetic listener so she will do the diligence to understand exactly what you desire and then align the best options for you.
A true professional, Liz also is helpful after the close. She sends monthly updates regarding the industry and market to help you continue to get the most out of your investment.
I highly recommend Liz and know that she will be an asset for anyone lucky enough to work with her."
