"Kathy is absolutely wonderful. We started our search for our first place with only a budget and a deadline. It was overwhelming. Kathy was recommended to us by a couple friends and we reached out to her hoping for some guidance.
She was responsive from day one and had the patience to explain the process and answer all (and we had a lot!) of our questions. Kathy was available by phone, email, and text. She listened to what we wanted and needed, and advised us as to the important details we hadn't given thought to.
Once she knew our dream list and timeline, she sent us listings as soon as they were available, and set up showings so quickly we were often the first to view a place. This was invaluable.
After a couple showings, it was clear she understood our likes/dislikes and really customized the process for us. As first-time buyers without much experience, Kathy's ability to hone in on what we wanted and her knowledge about the market made the process as enjoyable as reasonably possible given the stressful nature of such a large and important buy. In fact, it was overall an exciting and fun experience.
Once we found the place we loved and knew we absolutely wanted, Kathy guided us through the offer and contract process all the way through the closing. Again, she was extremely responsive and willing to answer the million questions we seemed to constantly come up with. She never seemed rushed or annoyed, and she was always detailed in her responses.
We ended up with the perfect place. Just as important, however, we know we had a realtor who had our best interest in mind and who was committed to help us through every step of the process. Kathy is experienced, knowledgeable, and has the skills necessary to get you into the place of your dreams. I cannot recommend her enough."
"Kathy was the perfect realtor for us. After taking us on a few showings she honed in on exactly the type of home we were looking for and it was only a matter of time before she found us our new place. Very accommodating, very willing to offer guidance for inexperienced home buyers. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!"
"Kathy Murphy handled the sale of our home where we had lived for more than 30 years, and she found us the condo where we presently are living. Perhaps the best aspect of her work is that she quickly got to know our likes and dislikes and how to match us to a new home that will serve us well far into the future. We actually had some fun times looking at potential apartments. Conversely, the sale of our house was somewhat complicated, and her patience and calm demeanor were exactly what was required. She also made logical and reasonable suggestions based on her experience. Now that all of this is behind us, we feel very good about the entire process."
"Kathy was very professional from the beginning. Developed listing and pictures in a few days and began marketing. Her recommendation for pricing was right on the mark and had multiple showings within a few days and received an offer in 10 days. She handled the negotiations and we closed in 20 days. Am very pleased and impressed with Kathy's knowledge of the market and ability to make the process smooth and stress free. I would highly recommend Kathy as your realtor."
"Kathy helped me find the perfect condo! This was my first time buying a home and Kathy was extremely patient and informative through the entire process. She not only has years of experience and thorough knowledge of Chicago but she also has a great attitude. I would recommend Kathy to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
