"It was truly a pleasure working with Anne Hodge as she helped us to sell one home and buy another. She was professional and knowledgeable about the market, offering important advice and answering all of our questions thoroughly throughout the process. Anne continually exceeded our expectations as she helped with every little detail in order to make our experience smooth and as stress free as possible. Thank you, Anne!!!"

"I worked with Anne on a re-positioning of a property in the Countryside / LaGrange area. I found her to be extremely knowledgeable of the local market, what buyers are looking for, and what sellers need to do to attract the right buyer and top dollar. I could not have been more pleased with my experience. Anne's customer service is top-notch. I found her to be available whenever I needed her, and her enthusiasm and love for her job permeates her selling style and desire to win you as a client."

-DM

"Anne helped us with our recent move to Elmhurst from Chicago. Coming in, our knowledge of the western suburbs was fairly limited. We needed to learn about the obvious things like home price trends and commuting options but it was also important to learn about the intangibles of each town. Anne was an incredible resource and her patience as we narrowed down our options went beyond any reasonable expectation. During our entire search, we always trusted Anne had both our immediate and long term interests in mind. Ultimately we found a great home in a great community and we couldn't be happier. The only downside is we will miss our visits with Anne!"

-CS

"Anne is the best! We live in Chicago and were looking to make a move to the western suburbs. We knew little about the area, Anne was honest and so helpful. She goes above and beyond and is very knowledgeable and personable. She made the home buying process easy and fun! We will absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!"
