When we listed our house with JoEllen, we knew the odds of a sale were against us. There were so many other properties on the market in our town! But we knew that if anyone could ensure that our house would sell, it was JoEllen. Her calm, professional attitude and years of experience were an amazing combination. She helped us price our property realistically, offered us tips to help it show better, and walked alongside of us every step of the way. We ended up accepting a short sale offer on our property, and JoEllen helped us navigate the complex process with our lender. Our house sale recently closed successfully, thanks in large part to JoEllen's diligent efforts on our behalf. I'd recommend her without reservation to anyone looking to sell or buy in this challenging market.

"Hi JoEllen, We just wanted to update you on the house. We moved in about a month ago, and things are great. The first couple of weeks we painted the house, and the week before we moved the appliances came. We absolutely LOVE it here. Thanks you for helping us find the perfect house for us!" Angla and Kevin Cronin.

"If Joellen isn't on your short list of Illinois Realtors, she should be. My wife and I found out we were expecting the birth of our first child and needed extra space. Joellen was the first person we called in search of our perfect dream home. In addition to finding a new home, we also needed to rent our current place of residence, almost simultaneously. Joellen was able to find the perfect single family home inLibertyville, developed a comparative market analysis to assist in the negotiations, identify a reputable lender and even found a renter for our home, making the transition from condo living to single family home ownership very easy; all in two weeks. Joellen is a wealth of information, crafted from years of experience in the Lake County and surrounding markets. Joellen is professional, knowledgeable, understands the housing and rental markets respectively and is skilled in developing advertising in a variety of mediums from social to conventional media. Joellen is courteous, hardworking and tenacious, working to represent her clients while maintaining the highest ethical standards. Her follow-up and follow-through is impeccable and I was kept informed of the process every step of the way. This wasn't the first time I have called Joellen for help and it wont be the last."

I standby an endorsement to all military and civilians alike seeking to buy or sell real estate in the Chicago area. We are very happy with our home purchase because of your expertise and support provided during our recent home purchase. Joseph and Shelia Banks

"This letter's written to tell you of the excellent service experience we had with B & W agent JoEllen Schlesinger. The selling of one's home is certainly stressful in the best of times and we are grateful that we had JoEllen to guide us through the process. JoEllen Provided us a thorough orientation to marketing our home, including all the pricing comparisons that we sought. She was remarkably accurate in her assessment of the likely selling price of our property. JoEllen kept us well-informed of the status of the buyers' feed back and decisions. Her professional experience really kept us calm and focused during the home-showing period. We especially appreciated that while JoEllen provided context and explanation for contractual offers on the porperty, she respected that the decision belonged to us and clearly communicated our resp0onses to the buyers' realtors. JoEllen"s extensive experience in the realty business served us very well as she expertly negotiated specific contract terms on our behalf. I would also like to note that we truly appreciated JoEllen's business ethics and her respect for our requests to avoid business transactions during Holy Days. In closing, my husband, Dennis and I are very satisfied with our home-selling experience, and hope that the Baird & Warner firm also recognizes what a professionally knowledgeable and supportive agent JoEllen Schlesinger is for their clients.."
Thruly yours, Gail M. Fritz

My wife and I workeed with JoEllen last summer to sell our house. JoEllen was very helpful through out the whole process. She helped us stage our home in order to present it in the best light. She did a complete market analysis in order to establish a competitive price point. The photos she produced wre beautiful. In the course of doing these things, she was professional, informative and competent.
The result of her efforts were a quick and easy sale of the house in a very few number of days.
