Testimonials for Helen Oliveri

  • Joan Haufschild – Sold in Hawthorn Woods, IL

    “Helen, I should have responded sooner but my feet haven't touched the ground since the good news on the sale of my house. You lived up to all and more than my expectations with the way you’ve handled everything.

    I appreciate the double emails to Sally and me. My friends celebrated with me at Maggiano’s on Friday and we were all amazed at the quick sale and at the listing price!

    I thank you as does my family.”

  • Jeff Dewey - Glenview, IL

    Helen was great! She is a very motivated and knowledgeable professional, and has a sincere interest in helping her clients. She really knows the area, and sets realistic expectations. I can't say enough about the team as a whole. Everyone I dealt with was very courteous and responsive, as though I were the only client. Communication is key for me, especially following a bad experience with another realtor several years ago. This was not an issue for Helen and her team, as I was continually informed on the status of our listing with detailed email and telephone updates. I also received timely analytics on the web activity of participating listing sites, and helpful feedback following scheduled showings. Our property was appropriately valued throughout the sales term given the conditions of the market along the way. The printed brochures and Internet coverage were great. The marketing materials did a fantastic job of showcasing the property. Overall, the marketing was first rate. We definitely made the right decision to use Helen and her team to sell our home, for all the reasons mentioned above and more.

  • Nick and Irene Makropoulos - Sold in Des Plaines & Bought Mt. Prospect, IL

    Responsive, caring...just a great team! The entire team was available at every moment. Helen was there for us every step of the way. With the market and appraised value, our home was priced accordingly and sold. The entire process of selling and buying a home was extremely stressful. The Helen Oliveri Team was always quick to respond and meet all of our needs. Thank you! Nick and I would like to sincerely thank Helen Oliveri and her ENTIRE team on the sale of our home along with the purchase of our new home. We put our entire trust in your team and we were impressed with the entire process. The entire team was warm, compassionate to our needs, and always available for us. We are so excited to begin filling our home with memories. May the entire team continue to have great success and blessings. Much love, Nick and Irene Makropoulos and family.

  • Joe and Nancy Tautges - Hawthorn Woods, IL

    Helen was very service oriented. We enjoyed working with Helen. Helen did her best to sell the house and did. Helen is the expert in the Hawthorn Woods Country Club and we would recommend her to anybody in the neighborhood to sell their home.

  • John and Jaimie Barringer - Hawthorn Woods, IL

    Our entire experience with Helen was amazing. Helen works extremely hard for her clients. There are a lot of moving parts with a sale of a home. EVERY step was clearly communicated. From showings, contract offer, negotiations, attorney review, inspections, closing documents, EVERYTHING was handled professionally and smoothly. When it came time to sell our home, we had ZERO hesitations on who we would pick to sell our home. Helen (and her team) is simply the best. We watched the marketplace during our 7 years of ownership. Helen knows the local market better than anyone and this is one of the many reasons she is #1 in sales.

    Helen did not just take our "listing". She made sure we knew all the expectations of this emotional decision. Moving is stressful and we had complete comfort in knowing all along we had the BEST and most professional person to handle our real estate process.

    We are talking your HOME here, why on earth would you settle for 2nd best when it comes to selling it?

  • Sheldon and Vicki Goldberg - Morton Grove, IL

    Helen came into our house after we had it listed with other brokers for over a year and she sold it. She was honest, sincere and very direct to the point on what needed to be done to our home sold in this market. She communicates very well and understands how hard the market is. She makes selling seem so easy and even though she does a whole lot of business, she always made us feel like we were her only client. Also, her staff was also terrific in that they were all attentive to the sale of our home. No matter who I spoke to, they all cared so much about me and my home. Also, I can't believe the amount of marketing Helen and her team does. From professional photography to fabulous brochures, my home looked like a million bucks. What a difference! I was so pleased to be treated like that and felt like my home was #1 in their eyes and in the general public eye. I can honestly say that Helen really surpassed our expectations of what a realtor should be. Getting sold in this market for 96% of asking in 33 days speaks for itself. We are very grateful we called Helen and thanks to all of you for a job well done.

  • Lori and Kevin Kelleher - Hawthorn Woods, IL

    We were very pleased to have Helen and her team market our home and find a buyer so quickly in a very difficult sales environment. Our experience was excellent with great follow through and we were sold in two weeks. Working with Helen was excellent, she was very responsive. She and her team are true professionals!

  • Jim and Angela Korompilas - Hawthorn Woods, IL

    We truly appreciate that Helen's entire team was engaging, helpful and committed to selling our home. In today's economy, we were SHOCKED at how quickly Helen had secured a buyer for our home. We would recommend The Helen Oliveri Team to anyone who serious about selling!

  • Dave Hamel - Glenview, IL

    My house had been on the market off and on for over two years with two different agents of one of the big area firms. The results: open houses where one person came, regular recommendations to lower the price (which they guided me to set in the first place), showings where I got no feedback.

    I finally fired them and hired Helen. The first thing she told me is - this is the price you need to be at if you want to sell the house. I gulped a little, but I could live with that number... if it really sold. So we put it on the market. 4 days later, I had an offer, a good offer. 4 days. After almost two years with that other firm with not one offer of any kind, no less much interest.

    To be frank, from my experience with the other firm, I wasn't expecting much. I didn't really know Helen or her abilities. She seemed smart and capable, but...

    So, I was surprised that my house sold so quickly. I had to scramble a bit to find a new place. No problem; Helen's team found me a great place in a great neighborhood for a great price. I moved out of my old place on a Thursday and into my new place on Friday.

    I know this all sounds like a story someone paid me to write, but it's not. It actually happened just the way I have described. Thanks to Helen and her team.

  • Diane Hart - Chicago, IL

    Helen and her team are the epitome of professionalism, organization, and efficiency. In the current market, having 35 showings in 10 days and going under contract after 18 days speaks for itself. I have told everyone in the area what a great job they all did and what a pleasure it was working with them. I could not have asked for better service!
