Moving? Upgrading? Let’s get the maximum amount of money in the shortest time-frame.
Lisa is nothing short of amazing! I met her at a random open house and needed to show my husband who was unavailable at the time – she came back just to show us the property later that day. I immediately got a great vibe from her because, in addition to her model-like good looks, she is an absolute sweetheart.Since we met, she has accompanied us to multiple listings and is so communicative, diligent and quick to respond that I have not gone to any other realtors. Lisa has never been pushy or tried to make a quick sale; rather, she has always been honest and open. We are closing on an investment property that we got at a great deal thanks to her honesty about what she thought it was worth. She also has steered us away from not so great properties that we were potentially interested in but were not experienced enough to know would not be good choices. We are so grateful for Lisa! She has become not only a realtor to my husband and I, but also a friend. Highly recommend her!
Helped me find my perfect place! Lisa was also very patient with me considering this was my first time looking for a place in the city and I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted! Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a new home/apartment downtown
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 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.
My experience working with Lisa can only be described as: phenomenal. I was put in touch with Lisa through a recommendation from my lender. Right from the start I could tell she was very knowledgeable of the different areas in and around the city of Chicago, and receptive and understanding as to what I was looking for. Her thoughtfulness and frankness while touring homes made the process much less daunting. Without a doubt, she works as a partner with your best interests in mind. We took 2 trips total to visit houses in the Saint Charles, Sycamore, and DeKalb areas. There were times that I would second-guess myself and start to compromise on what mattered most, but Lisa was able to step in to remind me of the positives and negatives of each option. When I did find the one that met all of my criteria, she masterfully guided me through the process of making the offer, through final closing. I could not have done it without her. Even more special is that she truly cares, and has a passion for what she does. I could go on for pages about the good memories and even more traits that exemplify her professionalism. The most succinct is just simply: phenomenal.
Lisa is an amazing real estate professional. Like her title, she is professional, talented and obviously knows exactly what she is doing. She helped me find the condo of my dreams in Chicago and I couldn’t be happier. There wasn’t a lot of work required on my end because she took care of everything and helped it go through smoothly. I will be recommending her to anyone I know searching for a place in Chicago.
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 is one of the hardest working real estate agents I have ever met. She is patient, thoughtful, and incredibly knowledgeable. Lisa is also a great communicator, worked well to adapt to our crazy schedules, and was quick to follow up or research any outstanding items. Lisa knows the right questions to ask and is always on top of everything. She truly made the experience more enjoyable than I could have imagined. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent.
Lisa was a fantastic! The combination of her spearheading the apartment search, along with her local knowledge of the market enabled us to find our perfect home. She is also very well-versed in understanding the complexity of working through the home buying process and was very helpful throughout our experience. Lastly, she pays extreme attention to detail and understands the specifics to look out for when touring/inspecting different houses during your search. I highly recommend Lisa.
“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!”
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.
