Moving? Upgrading? Let’s get the maximum amount of money in the shortest time-frame.
I can’t recommend Lisa enough – I’m so happy that we had the privilege of working with her to sell our first home and buy our second. After meeting probably close to 50 realtors at as many open houses, we chose to work with Lisa because of how genuine and friendly she seemed as well as how she really listened to what we wanted and how knowledgeable she was about the property she rep-resented. From the very beginning, Lisa only sent us properties that fit what we wanted and she was great at telling us if the listings were priced well and what she thought was good and bad about each one we were interested in. She thought to ask questions we wouldn’t have, and she made sure to understand how we genuinely reacted to each property we visited so that she could tailor our search going forward. She is also super fun to be around, so going to showings was like hanging out with a fun friend who happens to be really knowledgeable about real estate! The other awesome thing about Lisa is that she’s a killer negotiator. She negotiated on two properties for us to purchase, and we ended up pleasantly surprised where we ended up in both cases. She also sold our home at very close to list even though the first buyer fell through. She was so great not only through two buyers on our house, but also in dealing with a terribly frustrating seller on the new home. She updated us on exactly what was happening each step of the way while being the perfect balance of encouraging and realistic. My husband and I commented to each other on multiple occasions that we would have given up on the whole thing if it hadn’t been for Lisa. As I sit writing this review in our beautiful new house, I am so pleased with how things turned out. I plan to recommend Lisa to everyone I know who is looking to buy or sell in Chicago – she is seriously the best!
Lisa Petrik helped me find an apartment when I just moved into Chicago. She got me a place I love in only 2 days!!! Lisa understood what I needed immediately and only showed me places that were relevant to me and fit my budget. I recommend her to anyone looking for a professional and efficient Real Estate Agent.
Lisa was incredibly responsive and willing to put in extensive time for our condo search. She cleared her schedule when we had a few last-minute days to complete our search. She knew what we wanted, found many appropriate properties, and provided great advice on how to think about each. She knows the city so she could give us an idea of neighborhoods. I would definitely recommend working with Lisa!
Lisa was amazing to work with! I recently sold my house through her and I was really impressed – she felt more like a friend than a realtor throughout the experience. She was great at being responsive and available in the way that worked best for me, helped me get the house ready to put on the market, and handled the negotiations fantastically. It seemed overnight that I went from hiring Lisa to the house being on the market and sold. I would definitely work with her again and highly recommend her to others!
Lisa helped us negotiate our dream home! She was able to advise us based on her knowledge of the developer, the neighborhood and comps in the area. She was very patient and responsive during the whole process. She was very flexible with times for us to view the home. It was a pleasure working with her and we hope to do so again in the future
Lisa is a highly knowledgable problem-solver, and we loved every moment of working with her. My boyfriend and I have very different ideas of the ideal apartment community – he’s interested in super-modern luxury, and my taste is more geared toward the feeling of character and hominess. We had 2 weeks to find an apartment, and in those two weeks we only had 3 evenings available to go on showings. The best decision we could have made was to ask Lisa to help us find an apartment – she was fit for the challenge of finding the perfect place for us, despite us providing her with a long list of characteristics that conflicted with one another. When we first started looking, we genuinely didn’t know if something EXISTED that we would both like. Lisa took on the task with so much enthusiasm and confidence that it made the search fun and exciting. It was a joy working with her, and I cannot recommend her more highly. She is professional, to-the-point, patient, and – best of all – honest. Her joy and excitement are contagious. She was quick to correspond and follow up, and her schedule was flexible to fit our needs. I’d choose her every time.
First of all, I’m picky. Very picky. I know exactly what I want, which is often hard to find. Lisa was the perfect agent because she understood what I wanted, and only showed me homes that fit my criteria. She never wasted my time showing me homes I wouldn’t want (I’m sure I wasted hers, but she didn’t complain!), and was always patient with me. I would highly recommend working with her if you want to find your dream home.
I worked with Lisa for a little over a month’s time period in Chicago IL, and I would recommend her services to anyone. She is extremely kind, very easy to get along with, fun to be around and was very knowledgeable about all of the properties that she had showed me. I was a first time renter in Chicago and she eased my nerves about the entire process and was always available and prepared for any random question that I had for her. She kept her eye out for any property she thought that I would enjoy based on the criteria that I had been looking for and let me know the moment it became available for a showing. The process most certainly wasn’t easy but Lisa made it as stress free and as painless as possible and that I will always be grateful for.
“I purchased my first home with Lisa. She was fast, knowledgable and patient with my needs. She made the home buying experience so easy! She is such a sweet person and genuinely cares about you and your future!”
Lisa did a fantastic job finding me an apartment in Chicago in a very compressed time frame. My needs changed drastically over the course of a month from buying in the suburbs to renting in the city. Lisa shifted gears seamlessly and took away a lot of the guess work associated with this move. Lisa is very responsive and organized which made the experience all the more enjoyable. I would recommend Lisa to anyone needing an expert in the Chicago area real estate market.
With a longstanding love of negotiations, and a love for the city’s diverse culture and amazing architecture, Lisa joined the industry after spending fourteen years running and managing a successful newspaper publication where she sharpened her skills as an entrepreneur and a master negotiator. Never afraid of a challenge, Lisa loves meeting new people as well as discovering great homes. Lisa upholds the highest standards of service and believes in the efficient use of time to streamline the often intricate real estate process.
