Chicago IL Homes for Sale

Referral Directory


Referral Directory

"Mary's List"


Every real estate transaction takes a team - whether it be an attorney, an inspector, or a good painter after the deal has closed. These people are important before, during and after the transaction. It is important to us that the people that help our clients are people like ourselves - excellent at what they do and that put the client first. So we have assembled a Referral Directory of people that share our same values in client care.

Service providers do not pay to be included in our directory. To be included in this directory requires that we either have personal experience with their services or that they have been referred to us through our clients. Although we believe their service to be first-rate, you will want to use care in choosing a service provider to verify that their service will adequately meet your needs.
