“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!”
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 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.
I recently contracted Lisa to list a property that I had currently been using as a rental. Her professionalism, guidance, drive and availability made this the best experience I have had in regards to a real estate transaction. I no longer live in the area and she went above and beyond to make this as easy as possible for me. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone who is buying or selling.
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.
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.
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
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 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 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!
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.
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 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 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 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!
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 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 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.
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!
