      WHAT OUR

      CLIENTS SAY

      Caroline did a fantastic job as our listing agent! She was very professional and answered any questions that we had throughout the process. I would recommend her to anyone listing their Northbrook home!

      "We are so relieved to have been able to work with Caroline in what was an unprecedented real estate market! Caroline scoped out coming soon listings and accompanied us to many, many house showings (including one via FaceTime while we were traveling) before we found "the" house. Along the way, she spent time learning about our preferences and made sure to circle back to our priorities when it came to deciding whether or not to put in an offer – which helped ease the pressure in the midst of a really hot real estate market. When it came time to make an offer, Caroline was invaluable in helping us put forward a strong enough offer to avoid a multiple bid scenario. On the sell side, Caroline advised on where to put effort in terms of staging and decluttering. She recommended a fair and thoughtful pricing strategy which proved very effective:

      Ari Hakkarainen

      Hello Caroline Gau, "After 25 years working in Chicagoland it was time to retire and move to warmer climes. My wife and I felt overwhelmed at the daunting prospect of preparing our house for sale and navigating the process to a successful close. Pricing, prepping, staging, and all aspects of the process generated questions. Caroline Gau was our choice for the person to guide and help us through the process, and she was THE RIGHT CHOICE. If had to do it again, would choose her again. Without reservation. Save yourself what time and worry you can. Call Caroline."

      Malcolm Culbertson

      "Choosing Caroline was the best decision I could have made when I decided to sell my house. She definitely has her finger on the pulse of the local real estate market! Caroline and her team did an amazing job from start to finish. With Caroline's helpful staging ideas, photoshoots, virtual tours and strong social media presence, I had multiple offers within days and she expertly guided me through the entire process. Thank you, Caroline!"

      "Caroline Gau was very professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, and enthusiastic in the entire process of our home sale in Northbrook IL. We are excited and dedicated to continue our relationship with her as she helps us find our new home."

      Chris and Teresa

      "Caroline helped us prepare for selling our house, and then guided us as we purchased our new home, and sold our old home. She has a calm and consistent demeanor throughout the whole process, and offers her honest advice and feedback where needed. There was great attention to detail as she helped us stage our home for selling and part of her services included cleaning and professional pictures along with a wide breadth of social media utilization. Simply put, there was no way we weren't going to sell our home! When the showings began, she helped us maneuver close to 35 visitations, which resulted in 9 offers inside of a week. We were very pleased to say the least. On the purchasing end, she showed us a few houses to being with as she began to understand what our needs and wants were. Caroline never pressured us to move in

      Erin Stoney

      "I highly recommend Caroline, she is wonderful to work with. She is very knowledgeable and consistently follows up. She keeps the process moving, leveraging her resources until the deal is done. I have done about 6 real estate transactions over the years and this was a no-stress, no-drama experience!"

      Marilyn Bruckman

      "When you have lived in a home for many years, the thought of selling (and buying in today's market) can seem daunting. Caroline Gau was a strategic and thoughtful partner in this process. She is thorough, knowledgable and able to navigate the ever changing marketplace. If you are considering selling or buying, you owe it to yourself to talk to Caroline. She'll give you the straight scoop!"

      Robin

      "Caroline is truly one of the best people I have ever met. She knows her business and is an expert. I wish I had her ability to be smart and and kind at the same time. I contacted her to list my Aunt's condo 2 years ago. I delayed getting it ready to show. The entire time Caroline was so nice and understanding. She always had great suggestions. During this time whenever I have asked Caroline for a referral for any type of service, she always provided the correct person. When I finally got the condo ready to sell, she helped in EVERY step. She always answers text messages or phone calls. The condo sold in one day, above asking price. We closed in less than one month. She is very professional and cares a great deal about her work. I feel lucky to know her. She really knows her

      We had a wonderful experience selling our home with Caroline. She sat down with us to walk through our options for selling and brought a variety of research to help us establish our optimal sell price. She handled all the details, was quick to respond to any inquiries we had, and kept us fully in the loop throughout the process. Through a variety of marketing and social media, she was able to quickly promote our home and the house sold in a few days for our asking price. Honestly, she made the process so easy - we cannot recommend her highly enough.

      We had a wonderful experience working with Caroline to find our new home. Caroline was very flexible, setting up showings at many types of properties while over time guiding us to the right home based on the feedback we provided. Additionally, she came with several contacts in the home repair industry to provide quotes for updates and ultimately set us up with professionals after closing. It was great getting to know Caroline and we are so grateful for her helping our family move to the next stage.

      Caroline did a good job in helping us sell our property. She made the process easy and stress-free as sellers, and helped take care of the stuff that was stressing us out. She was very knowledgeable and professional. Got our property sold quickly which was a main goal of ours. Would recommend her services. Thanks Caroline.

      Caroline was a find. We considered other options (FSBO, Redfin) but Caroline had her finger on the pulse of the market, and had just sold a very similar property, so we went with her. Very glad we did. She priced the house correctly, marketed it aggressively, and was helpful with anticipating obstacles and preventing them, and solving all manner of problems, right through closing. Her commission was money well spent. Highly recommend.
