Howard was referred to us by a work colleague because of husband's move from Houston, Texas, to Evanston, Illinois. Howard is excellent & if we could rate him 10 stars, we would! Before the move, Howard sent us listings from various suburbs of homes matching our needs (i.e., enough space to move in my elderly parents). Through the listings, we narrowed our search to Evanston & flew up to look at homes. Howard had a schedule of about 10 homes for us to view with our teenagers in one busy weekend. He was patient, knowledgeable, professional and friendly. What more to say about him? The weekend we spent with him, we found our home and made an offer. We love our home, neighborhood & high school here in Evanston. Howard also helped us out on a last-minute issue of finding an apartment for my high-school age daughter and I so she could start marching band with her school in early August 2018. He found one in such short notice. My daughter was able to meet high school students from marching band one month before school started, making an easier adjustment for her as en entering 9th grader. Howard didn't have to do that, but he went above and beyond in helping our family. We absolutely recommend him and if we ever moved again in the area, we would hire Howard.
Howard's professionalism and attention to detail are unmatched. He used extensive data, his own expertise, and feedback from others in his office to position our home on the market to maximize its value and minimize the time on the market. And he did this all while always being understanding of our family's needs and concerns. This resulted in the obtainment of multiple offers within a few days on the market and the sale of our home over its asking price. We strongly recommend Howard for any real estate needs.
As first time homebuyers Katie was super helpful, patient, and organized. She put together numerous outings with private appointments. She listened to our wants and needs lists and helped set reasonable expectations on price and space. Katie was willing to take us to a variety of neighborhoods and styles of homes so we could better understand the price/value/space equation. Overall, we could not recommend Katie more highly!
We had to make a move pretty quickly (within a 4 month window!), and had a narrow range of where we needed to live as well as a specific budget and a lot of "wants" we were hoping our new house would have...and needless to say there just wasn't a whole lot out there that met all our criteria! Susan was wonderful throughout the whole process. She stayed on top of every house coming on the market and followed up on every possibility until we found a great fit for our family! She was so flexible and available and had great ideas about ways we might expand our search without giving up what was really important to us. She was also great at noticing things that might have created problems for us in a house that we may not have noticed or realized. We never felt like she wanted to get us just in "any" house, but in the right house for us. Lastly, Susan was always friendly and fun to work with, which made the whole process a lot easier! We would definitely recommend Susan to our friends and would want her to be our realtor in the future if we move again.
Listen to her! Katie Meyers is a wonderfully approachable, informative and skilled realtor who guides us through the sale of our former Rogers Park unit and purchase of our new condo in Edgewater. Her welcoming and sincere manner calmed us throughout our process. Our listing went so well supported by her strong advice pricing, on clearing our space and the wonderful photographer who captured the unit so well in the lovely summer light. She encouraged us to aim higher in the units we visited which was exactly the price point our sellers accepted. Her persistence paid off in the many units we visited. Katie offered descriptions and angles that helped us evaluate the space. She encouraged us to see units we liked during open houses and would often schedule viewings later on Sunday which worked so well for our schedules. She was very diplomatic in her neutrality between us as we grappled with weighing our likes and dislikes during our visits. Katie was a patient teacher in our process of accepting and making an offer. She is an excellent digital communicator and supported us to create the documents we needed through a secure process. Katie is superb with detail, assertive and wonderfully responsive problem solver. When our closing was delayed, Katie floated the idea of moving into storage to preserve the expected closing timeline. We completed this process and continue to happily unpack in our wonderful new home. Katie utilizes her team well. We so enjoyed working with Howard and Susan Meyers and appreciated the insight and confidence they provided to us. We listened to her; we are so grateful for Katie's great service and recommend her highly to people seeking housing in Chicago.
We have had a wonderful experience selling our house with The Meyers Group. They are honest, professional and caring agents who have gone out of their way to listen to our needs and guide us through many decisions. They understand our local real estate market very well, have provided outstanding marketing strategies to sell our home quickly, and, above all, have been very enjoyable and fun to work with. They have made selling our house as stress-free as possible (which is hard with three kids and a dog) and we highly recommend them. We just wish that we were staying in the area so that they could assist us in buying a new house!!
Howard is an excellent advisor. He listens, takes down your concerns, and provides excellent guidance depending on your needs, not his. For example, I was new to the area and not sure if I wanted to dip my toe into the real estate market (with a modest purchase) or jump in with both feet (with a larger purchase). I always felt like Howard was on my side. To this day, Howard is a trusted advisor who I call upon when looking for other services or recommendations. He is that kind of partner.
Finding a home that actually works for downsizing is actually difficult on the North Shore! Way too many places that old, dated and in need of a full makeover. Susan worked the market and when we did not initially find something, she asked for our patience and we were rewarded. She put us first every step of the way. We are now in home that not only we love but everyone else our age wants!! What could be better?
Katie is amazing! What I appreciate about her the most is that she's always looking out for her clients' best interest. For instance, she was once at a unit that I didn't explicitly ask her to, but she called me via FaceTime to show me the place because she knew it fit my preferences. She goes above and beyond to make sure that her clients have everything they need to find a new home.
Howard and Susan were a pleasure to work with. The were straightforward and honest,always available and proved very adept at handling a contentious negotiation to get our home sold and closed on time in a tough market. I would use them again without hesitation.
Katie was extremely accommodating, personable, knowledgeable and hard working. She really listened to our needs/wants and always remained patient and positive through our process. Katie genuinely cared about finding us the perfect home. In a stressful time of transition (moving across country), we could not have asked for a better realtor. We will always recommend Katie to anyone in search of their perfect home.
The best. Howard is a phenomenal broker who knows the north shore market and handles customers with the utmost respect. I would recommend him to any body buying or selling a home on the north shore.
We had a great experience with Susan, she understood our needs and was able to narrow the search. She is very knowledgeable of the area and market trends. I would highly recommend her!
Katie was really great to work with - very accommodating, thorough, and responsive to texts and emails.
Extremely professional and knowledgeable. Felt very comfortable in a very tricky, complicated sale.
Katie is smart and professional.
Great people. Very responsive and knowledgeable.
Katie was absolutely amazing. She took such great care of me, and was so helpful and communicative through every step of the process. I will 1000% work with her again!
Katie was so easy to work with. She really listened to what we wanted and made sure everything we saw ticked all the boxes. Katie is SO organized and made herself available at all times. We really appreciated her responsiveness and extensive knowledge about all aspects of the home buying process. In general, she just made us feel really comfortable. Thank you, Katie!
