Moving? Upgrading? Let’s get the maximum amount of money in the shortest time-frame.
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.
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.
“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 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!
I met Lisa randomly at a drop-in open house months before I planned to move to Chicago. Her kind smile, quickly-apparent expertise, and genuine desire to set assist led me to work with her when the time came, no questions asked! She sent several properties our way, constantly updating our search based on our (ever-changing) list of desires. I am so thankful she was there to walk us through every step of this process and to snag us an INCREDIBLE deal! Thank you Lisa!!
Lisa was exceptional during our entire home-buying process. We had several questions and a lot of back and forth with the sellers and Lisa was always on top of it. She guided us through each of the things we needed to do and also sent us reminders. She made herself available even on the weekends and late at night. She made us feel like we were her only clients even though we know she was very busy with other clients! She is also incredibly friendly and honest and went to bat for us on several occasions. I would recommend Lisa to all of my friends!
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.
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!
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 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.
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.
