Our Raving Fans

With almost 3,000 homes sold in 20 years, our raving fans say it best…


We are very grateful for our clients, supporters and fans that helped us become the top broker in our communities. It is wonderful to hear their kind words. We love what we do, and it’s all because of you!

Helen did a terrific job coordinating the steps to a quick offer and timely closing. We always felt informed and professionally served.
As a broker myself, for over 40 years, I recognize quality service and dedication.

1 Holmes Ave., Hawthorn Woods Seller – Karl Gabel

My husband & I owned our home for 28 years and were thinking of downsizing. It was an overwhelming project to think about, but we decided to start taking baby steps in that direction. So one Monday when I was driving down Gilmer Road I stopped in at Helen’s office. She was energetic & friendly so we set an appointment for Wednesday for her to meet with my husband & I at our home. She listened to our concerns and gave us common sense advice about the market & our home. I am detailed oriented & ask a LOT of questions…and I came to have great confidence in Helen’s expertise. Listing our home with Helen we got her and a whole team of professionals. She guided us through the whole process; connecting us to her recommended contractors, inspectors and anyone else we needed to get the our home ready for market. Our house pictures looked amazing when it went on the market – selling in less than one day. As busy professionals we appreciated that she kept in touch, answered questions quickly and kept us on track without being pushy. Definitely took a stressful time in our lives and gave us a positive experience.

59 Darlington Dr, Hawthorn Woods Seller – Rosemarie Fagan

Do you want your house sold for the best price and as quickly as possible? Then Helen Oliveri is your best move! Helen and her team were a dream to work with. They were professional, knowledgeable, and pleasant throughout my home-selling process. They helped me sell my unique 1 bedroom, Northbrook condo when I needed it sold and for the best price!


3085 Pheasant Creek Unit 209, Northbrook Seller – Sharon VanDyke

Helen Oliveri delivers! Her extensive knowledge of the HWCC market made the process of selling our home a smooth and quick experience.  Helen handled the process from start to finish, all the while honestly informing us of any actions we need to take. She is enthusiastic, extremely thorough and professional, and so personable. We definitely recommend Helen to anyone looking to sell (or buy) a home.


27 Harborside Way, Hawthorn Woods Seller – Debra Stockert

We have now used Helen three times. Twice on the buy side and once on the sale side. Through all transactions she was very supportive providing us the counsel needed to make the best decision for our family. Helen has a sense of urgency and energy that is unmatched! She is willing to go as fast as you are comfortable but also willing to be patient (no high pressure sales!) to wait for the right opportunity. I really appreciate working with Helen and would recommend without hesitation for those looking to buy or sell.

Hawthorn Woods Buyer & Seller – Brian and Kristine Sizemore

We have now used Helen Oliveri and her team for selling two homes and buying two homes over the last 11 years.  When working with Helen we always knew she would do everything in her power to make sure the transactions went as smoothly as possible and that we were taken care of.  If you want to have a realtor that will be in your corner fighting for you throughout the real  estate process, chose Helen and her team. 

SOLD 3021 Jackson, Arlington Heights – Shawn & Lindsay LaMere

I cant say enough great things about how you helped me out.
I tell anyone who will listen!
Thank you so much!

SOLD 59 Harborside Way, Hawthorn Woods – Kristine Pearce

“Thank you Helen! I think you are the absolute best. Feel free to share. It means a lot to me that you were there side by side with Alex and me as we made this very personal transition in our lives.”

SOLD 54 Seneca Ave W, Hawthorn Woods – Sarah LeBlanc

Thanks to my absolutely terrific broker, I have no questions about the upcoming closing. As my friends, neighbors, and multi-discipline professional colleagues here in Miller Beach and Munster, IN (where my private practice is located) would absolutely attest to:  I have already been recommending Helen Oliveri Real Estate. 
I do not know how in the world I came to benefit from the exemplary professional services of your obviously very best broker, for my humble, lakefront condo sale which involves but a tiny fraction of the customary commission percentage typically in play for the Northwestern and Western Chicago suburbs. All I can say is that I learned long ago to embrace, enjoy, and give thanks for “illogical” miracles when they appear in your life. You are ever so definitely that. 

Buyer – Deb Gross

I want to thank you for all you have done and will most definitely refer you to anyone I know who is looking for someone to sell their home. I couldn’t have done this whole process without you and your team.  

SOLD 29 Steeplechase Dr, Hawthorn Woods – Karin Jurczak

Thank you very much for your professionalism and follow through. I know your numbers! Lol

SOLD 14 Carlisle Rd, Hawthorn Woods – Tim Millirons

Helen & team did a great job to market and sell our home in record time. Recommend Helen for anyone; buying or selling real estate.

SOLD 76 Falcon Dr, Hawthorn Woods – Richard& Cathy Medina

Helen and her team are great! She helped sell our home in 2020 despite the uncertainty of the market due to Covid-19. Helen helped us buy our new home as well. She has excellent insights and ideas and understood our needs and timelines. I don’t think we could have gone through this process without her help. She is a pleasure to work with, and I would recommend her and her staff to anyone buying or selling a home.

Thank you Helen for all your support. We are pleased with how smooth the process was. I have already been singing your praises to friends and will definitely continue to do so.

Sold 11 Shoreacres Dr, Hawthorn Woods – Vernetta McDowell & Charles Davis

We were more than a little concerned about selling our house during the Covid pandemic and winter months. We have lived in our house almost 30 years and realized that many things have changed in that time in regards to the real estate market. Helen & her team were very proactive on helping us prepare our house for sale and marketing it professionally. We were able to sell our house relatively quickly and Helen and her team were in frequent contact with us to make sure the sale proceeded on schedule. Special thanks to Mandy for all her follow up and communication. We highly recommend Helen Oliveri Real Estate if you’re considering buying or selling a home, especially in Hawthorn Woods as she understands the local real estate market very well.

Sold 6 McGregor Ct, Hawthorn Woods – Terry & Sue Ditsch

Helen and her entire team were fully committed to helping us fulfill our goals of selling our home and finding us the new home of our dreams. Her level of energy, optimism and constant attention to our needs helped us accomplish these goals. She and her team are kind and caring and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Helen Oliveri Real Estate to you to accomplish your real estate goals.

Sold – 1720 Ambria Ct, Mundelein, Bought -21 Shoreacres Dr, Hawthorn Woods – Ron and Glori Weinert

Helen did an amazing job getting this property sold. She loves what she does, and it shows in every aspect. Her enthusiasm and positivity, I feel, was a big part of why she is so successful. Her years of experience, knowledge of the real estate market and knowledge of negotiating, makes her head and shoulders above the rest. I highly recommend Helen for all real estate needs and I will be working with her in the future. Thanks for all the help Helen – great job.

Sold 28 Championship Pkwy, Hawthorn Woods – Noah and Kathy Seidenberg

We are so happy to have had the pleasure of working with Helen Oliveri and her team for both the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home. When we started the process we had thought it would take at least a year for both of our homes. Not with Helen! We sold and purchased within 5 months! Not only was this way faster than we expected, but all of the work she put in to the sale and purchase of our homes was outstanding! The pictures taken of our home were amazing and really captured the essence of what our home was like. On the purchase side we bought a foreclosure. Going into the process we were very skeptical – once again, Helen made it flawless. She was with us every step of the way will all of our questions and pushing to get everything done working with our timeline. We decided to close both of our homes on the same day – a little stressful to think about. Helen made it seem like a walk in the park. We woke up in one house and went to bed in our new home the very same day. I can not say enough good things about the hard work and professionalism Helen and her staff put in to our entire process. I highly recommend her to everyone for the sale and purchase of any home. Helen is the best!!

I personally recommend Helen Oliveri for house sale or purchase. The entire team is really really the best. It was really a pleasure working with her team.

Sold – 1989 Fountain Grass Circle, Bartlett – Nirav and Minaxi Shah

Helen and her team worked tirelessly to advertise and present our home, answer our questions and get us SOLD!

Sold – 305 Sundown Ct, Wauconda Bought – 18 Championship Pkwy, Hawthorn Woods – Mike & Mary Jutovsky

There is hope, sadness, drama, excitement, grief, anticipation, tension, and turbulence when selling your home and Helen Oliveri stands in the middle of all of it. Like most home sellers, we imagined our prized residence would sell quickly and a great price and like many home sellers, we learned over time that the marketplace was not the same as our optimistic imagination. Our property sat idle for several months until we engaged her.

Helen became for us a strategist, a teacher, a therapist, an encourager, even a stand-up comic when she felt the situation called for it. Her spirited, passionate nature combined with her tactical, relentless guerilla marketing tactics produced dozens of showings over time. With each failure or rejection, she gleaned information and adjusted for course. Each time she heard us become insistent or self-indulgent with potentially unrealistic opinions or proclamations, Helen did not correct or discipline. She simply reminded that…sure eating the bowl of chocolates might taste good now, but when you wake up in the morning you may not feel so good.  And she gently offered an alternative diet that might be more helpful for all involved.

We closed on the sale of our home today, so now we stand on the top of a great mountain ready to enjoy the smoother, back side of the slope. We are grateful to her and relieved.

In many ways, Helen’s great work ethic and passion reflects a more nuanced understanding and self-awareness that not only is she helping people move property, piles of wood and steel and glass, she is also helping people navigate the deeply personal and sometimes confusing process of departing from an ocean of vast memories, or starting a new family, or empty nesting, or starting a new job in a unfamiliar city, or seeking a new beginning, or simply stepping into a new future.

For all of her good work, her patience and understanding, her good humor and her doggedness, we are deeply grateful and indebted. Therefore, it goes without saying that we recommend her in all ways big and small.

280 Hanbury Dr, Lake Zurich – David and Tammy Whitacre

Helen’s experience, the great pictures that she took of the home, and the detailed description of the rooms helped with the sale of the home. She was always in contact with me.
1597 Wakefield Ct, Mundelein – Rae Wynn

Helen you are the best. I am so glad we picked you and you did a great job for us. We will for sure recommend you to everyone we know who wants to sell their home.

Thanks again to Helen and Team for being such a pleasure to work with.

Chris and I can’t thank you enough for everything that you’ve done. Not only were you our realtor but you treated us like family from day one. It wasn’t an easy task selling our home, however, your hard work and dedication paid off, you sold it!!! Love you and everything you have done for us! Forever Grateful. My only regret is I didn’t get you sooner!!Thank you for for everything, your amazing! 
21 Tournament Drive N, Hawthorn Woods -Gina and Chris Paluch

When we asked Helen to sell our house, I was really concerned that it was going to take 9 months to sell in the current market. Well…she sold it in 5 days above what we thought we would get. Helen has a full team ready and able to answer questions you may have. She is delightful to work with and I am so happy I decided to list with her.
25 Open Parkway N, Hawthorn Woods – Kelli Schulte

Of course I would recommend you to our neighbors.  You did a good job.  One of our close neighbors is going to sell this summer and I had a long talk with them. They asked a lot of questions.  They were impressed and will probably give you a call when they are ready.
47 Harborside Way, Hawthorn Woods – George Schmidle 

Helen – now that the closing of my home is complete, I wanted to write a brief note to express not only my gratitude, but amazement with your process and dedication to my best interests.

When I first met you, I previously had 2 different realtors who had extensive and accomplished resumes. I was dissatisfied with how they kept their commitments and with how they seemed to lose interest in marketing my home after they secured the listing. So, when I began looking for a new realtor, I decided to interview 6 new candidates; I wanted each to explain their marketing strategy and how it was different than other realtors. I also wanted someone who had a long sustained successful track record of selling homes similar to mine.

Well, when I tried to schedule you to visit our home, you told me were unavailable on the day I suggested because you had several closings scheduled. BOOM – that was the perfect thing for me to hear because it showed me you were having success in a down market. And when you did visit us, you were so easy to speak with and your observations and input were practical, pragmatic and unique to what we heard from the other 5 realtor candidates.

We signed with you on a Saturday; you arranged for photography later the same day (and the overhead photos via drone were so impactful they must be mentioned), we approved the script on Sunday; you listed it Monday. 6 days later we had our first and only showing and on the 8th day we had a signed contract. And we closed 2 months after we listed. A simply amazing timeline considering the current market. And during the 2 months between listing and closing, you checked in with us at least once a week; you kept us grounded throughout the inspection and financing processes and not once did we ever feel lost or unaware of next steps.

Helen – I know success requires a strong team and you do indeed have a lot of supporting members; the attorney you selected, your husband, your office staff. They were all outstanding in their own way. But every team needs a leader; to set direction, to stay the course and to know how to overcome the unexpected – and you did that.

So, from the bottom of our collectives hearts, THANK YOU Helen. You helped us realize our dream and I have told every one of our friends about you – in case they ever need a great realtor. As Tina Turner once sang – you’re the best!

6583 Beech Lane, Libertyville – Patrick and Carolyn Lalor

Thank you , and to your team …and your Fabulous husband …for some fantastic times. Closing was a breeze …had a great time…. no issues.

Would recommend you and your team to our friends and Community.

You are a part of the family,  when selling a home!

Thank you!

2 Eagle Ridge Dr, Hawthorn Woods – Mr. and Mrs. Olech

Helen and her team were great to work with through out my search for a house. They were patient as I looked at a range of properties to narrow down what exactly it was that I was looking for and helped pull things together when I did find the house I was interested in. Assistance was provided throughout the period from when the offer was accepted until closing, which helped make that process run smooth.

3262 Middlesax Drive, Long Grove – Brian Rick

I wish we had a “lead” or two for you… but we do not at this time.  But, may I suggest that you “blast your name & sales from our community” all throughout Grand Dominion… everyone knew us or our home…. you already had a “good reputation” but a SOLD  sign in only a week really created a “buzz”….Many people want to sell but their families are nearby… and they are not sure “where to go”…

We will always keep you in mind… we’re your best fans!

Maryanne & Rigg Warton – 3611 Melody St, Mundelein, IL.

It’s been fabulous working with you- you are the best!!

Thank you for making this a smooth transaction. My sister and I really appreciate it.

8 Bent Tree, Hawthorn Woods – Gaby Banaszak

In early May, 2017 I contacted Helen to discuss our desire to get our house ready to put on the market in the spring of 2018.  Helen made an appointment to come and talk with us.  We talked about the fact that we had lived in our house for 30 years and were looking to move out of the area.  We had an idea what our house was worth and discussed that with Helen.  She then ran some queries to show how many houses were on the market in our area in the same price range as we were discussing.  It appeared that we did not have a lot of competition at the moment.

We then did a walkthrough of each room of the house with Helen and she gave us advice on what we would have to do to “unclutter” the house.  At that point we had a further discussion on how long it would take us to get the house ready to be on the market and the advantages of not waiting until 2018.  In that conversation we became convinced that we should go ahead and commit to putting the house on the market as soon as we could be ready.

We had some vacation planned and a lot of work to do to get ready.  We agreed that we could be ready by July 1st.  Helen provided some referrals for things like handymen, carpet cleaning, junk removal, etc.  We used a number of these people with very good results.

Helen also gave us a person from her staff who we could contact with any questions or help that we needed.  We relied heavily on this relationship and came to really appreciate all of the help that this person provided.

By the last week in June we were ready to have Helen’s people come in to take pictures and videos of our house.  We were amazed at how professional the people were, their skill levels, how good they were at being able to market our house and the overall quality of the work that even included using a drone to capture pictures.

Our house went on the market around July 1.  There were a couple of showings scheduled immediately.  We even received our first offer within two days of it being on the market.  We were not able to come to an agreement with that prospective buyer and had 4 more showings over the next 10 days.  At that point we received our second offer.  Working through Helen we were able to reach a deal with those buyers very quickly.

We asked Helen if she had a lawyer who she could recommend.  She put us in contact with someone who met us in her office.  We were very comfortable with him and agreed to use his services.  We were very pleased with that decision.  He worked with the buyer’s lawyer to finalize their proposed contract and make some minor changes at closing.

Helen’s staff was there to schedule the water and septic tests and walk us through the rest of the process.  On August 23rd the movers came to pick up our stuff and start the move process.  On August 24th closing was successfully completed.  On August 25th we started our drive to our new house in the Las Vegas area.

We are very pleased that we decided to use Helen to be our realtor.  We had heard good things about her services from some of our neighbors and found everything that we heard to be true.  She was a partner who we could count on to represent us very well.  She was also always there when we needed her, plus she had an amazing staff!  The fact that we met Helen in early May and we were leaving the area with a check in hand by late August was exceptional!

Helen Oliveri did an amazing job selling our home.  It was sold in less than one day!  Her expertise in marketing and helping us establish a more than fair price for our home, based upon current market conditions and others similar to ours, did the trick. My wife and I couldn’t be more pleased and happily recommend Helen and her team to anyone.

As many of you know we sold our starter house and bought our forever home this weekend. After what seemed like forever with 5 showings a day, it only took 4 weeks to sell our cozy 2 bedroom home in Des Plaines. A huge thank you to the Helen Oliveri team is in order for marketing our house to really show its great qualities and persistent marketing strategies to close the deal.

Mike and Stephanie Berger – 9 Trent, Hawthorn Woods & 1723 Whitcomb, Des Plaines

Losing my mother suddenly was very difficult. The thought of selling her home was overwhelming to me.

I had heard about Helen from some of the neighbors and had seen her advertisements in the mail.
Helen was one of three Realtors I chose to interview. I knew right away she was a good fit for my needs. She had a solid marketing plan and a tenacious personality. I could tell she was a hard worker, but she exceeded my expectations!

My mom’s home was a 30 minute drive from mine making it difficult for me to keep a watchful eye on the house. Helen’s team was so very helpful by doing a walk through every week. They called me to tell me when they were going and followed up with a call that all was well. They even watered the flowers and brought in garbage bins for me.

The timing of the sale was a concern as it was near the end of the selling/buying season. Helen helped me price it reasonably and it actually sold within 2 months. Helen made sure we closed roughly a month after reaching an agreed sale price and now I’m able to focus on other matters. Thanks to Helen and her team my burden was eased.

34 Red Tail Dr, Hawthorn Woods – Timothy & Robin Trzesniewski

Thank you so much….almost 1 year to the day since we listed finally we are done w this chapter.

I appreciate the little things you did that made a HUGE difference in the selling process. Your checking on the house on a weekly basis was a god sent for us. Every time there would be a snow or rain I would worry if everything was ok but your weekly visits gave me the peace of mind and sleep at night:)  There were other thing too..putting St Joseph in the yard,  checking on the handy man’s work after he was done all was extremely kind and what separated you from others. Your staff was on top of everything and responded to every question on a timely fashion.

I don’t honestly know what else you guys could have done . You were super stars from day 1. You patiently listened to my point of view, came up with answers to help me understand what was going on. Loved the phone calls and reports.

Your slogan fits you guys greatly….indeed it was my best move to select you as my realtor and partner who cared about selling my house as much as they cared about the personal side.

Please send my regards and Thank to your team.

When my wife and I decided to sell our home, we approached at it as a business transaction. Helen’s team treated the sale of our home as everything other than just a simple business transaction. For Helen and her team, this was personal. From Helen to every member of her team, they treated the sale of our home as if it was their own residence. Moreover, Helen didn’t just list our home for sale, she MARKETED our home for sale. From brochures, to websites, to outreach, Helen made sure that our house was something that buyers KNEW about, not just another listing they stumbled upon. Between the two of us, my wife and I have sold 5 residences prior to working with the Helen Oliveri Team. Our experience with Helen’s team was so fantastic, it has set an extremely high bar for any home sale experience in our future! Seriously though, she sold our house in 16 days, that’s magic!

Adam Plummer – Sold in 6848 Ellis Dr., Long Grove / Bought in 1068 Conachie Ct., Vernon Hills

Having to put our home on the market in winter left us doubtful that we could sell. But, what we found in Helen was an agent who is knowledgeable about the market, knowledgeable about our home and our community and determined to get our home sold. We were so impressed with her team and all their support through the process. The brochure they produced was outstanding and beautiful. Helen’s marketing efforts and strategies including listing on so many websites and open house events resulted in not one, but two buyers within the timeframe we needed. Amazing! We are so grateful to Helen and her team for all their hard work.

Doug & Kelly Kerr – 13 Somerset Hills Court, Hawthorn Woods, IL.

I purchased 2098 Saipan in Glenview a couple of weeks ago and just wanted to send you a note to say I really appreciated the service provided by Andy and Team throughout the process.  I hadn’t gone through a purchase in quite some time, so I probably had more questions than answers. Andy had a great attitude and checked regularly on the progress and status, when I needed an extra measurement or question, he was very prompt in assistance!   I had sold my house through another agency and had quite the opposite experience so I felt compelled to pass this on.  I absolutely love the house and now that all the boxes are gone I am enjoying every bit of it.  Thanks again to your team and all those you connected me to to finalize the sale.

I would recommend anyone who was looking to sell or buy to your company.  Thanks Again!

I wanted to take a moment to send you a note to express my sincere gratitude for your help and time this weekend.  As you know, relocating is stressful with tons of moving parts.  Through your collaboration, you have taken one big piece of the process and made it seamless.

Kris and I appreciate all that you have done to help facilitate this process and create time in your busy schedule for our visit this weekend.  Looking forward to joining the community!

On behalf of my family, thank you so much.  Have a great week.

Brian Sizemore – 10 Palisades Blvd, Hawthorn Woods IL.

Working with Helen Oliveri and her team was an amazing experience. They were prompt and very professional. Helen always made herself available when we needed her. Her positive attitude and confidence overshadowed our worries. Helen’s staging advice made the house look clean, and ready for someone else to make it their home. The whole time Helen was working with our family to sell our home I knew she was doing everything she could to put our home out there and get it sold. That kind of service is rare and greatly appreciated. Thank you Helen Oliveri and team!

Helen and the team are a selling machine!! If you looking for someone with a high level of integrity, who provides an honest assessment of how to get your house sold then look no further. High energy coupled with superior professionalism and great service. What more could you ask for? We went with a different realtor to start. After 90 days of little or no activity we switched to Helen. Our house sold in a couple days!! Thanks very much to Helen and her team!

Patrick & Lynda Briesemeister – 225 North Trail, Hawthorn Woods IL

I can’t say enough about Helen and her team! We had a full price offer on our home within 4 days of listing and her team spent hours with us searching to find a new home that we loved in short order. We had delays on our sale and very difficult (this may be the understatement of the century) sellers for our new home and she and her team were fabulous. From dealing with low appraisals, to difficult negotiations, to following up hourly (literally) with our buyers’ lender when they had delays, her team made us feel like we were her only clients and #1 priority. All of their efforts paid off and we LOVE our new home! I would recommend her and her team in a heartbeat! Thanks so much, you made an extremely stressful and difficult situation work for us and we are so grateful!!!!!

Heather & Kenny Benoit – Sold 938 Beverly Dr. Wheeling IL / Bought 7 Norbert, Hawthorn Woods IL

Helen is professional, persistent, and a pleasure to work with!  She is passionate about real estate and understands the market well.  Her team works hard from the photos, to staging, showings, and all the way through the close.  Helen and her team are outstanding with quick and helpful responses to any questions along the way.

Jana & Tony Doctor – 14 Eagle Ridge Drive, Hawthorn Woods IL

I cannot recommend Helen and her team enough!  They were extremely professional, organized and aggressive in marketing my home and very responsive to all of my inquiries and needs from day one to closing.  Well done Helen.  You have a great team!

Brian Cunningham- 27 Harborside Way, Hawthorn Woods IL

I feel the weight off my shoulders since this afternoon. It obviously was the right time to leave our home as we have no regrets, only fond memories. You and your team were fabulous and helped me through a challenging time. I would be more than happy to give a referral by phone to prospective clients. Thank you for everything and I wish you continued success as you certainly deserve it.

Marlene Olson – 14 Trent, Hawthorn Woods IL

I listed my town home with Helen and it sold very quickly.  Helen and her team did an excellent job marketing the property and guiding me thru the process.  They were always accessible and respectful of our needs.

Katherine Moore – 13 Red Tail Dr, Hawthorn Woods IL

Excellent agent. Really knows her stuff. Empathetic, intelligent, knowledgeable. We ended up giving our house to our son instead of selling, but should we ever need an agent she’d be the one we’d call upon. Very nice lady.

Ann & Ray Sipowicz – Mundelein Future Clients

Thank you for your professional and speedy sale of our home in Hawthorn Woods .

We tell all are friends to use you when they put their homes in the market.

Have a great year.

Steve & Mary Jo Pippenger – 4 Wakia Ct., Hawthorn Woods IL

When I started the process of listing my house for sale/rent, I was anticipating a long painful process. From the moment I spoke to Helen, I felt comfortable and assured that she and her team will help me through this process smoothly. Helen and her team exceeds my expectation on all aspects. From the time we prepare the house to be listed, through showing appointments, negotiations and setting expectations, to finalizing the deal… Helen and her team were there for me. I felt like I was her only client but I’m sure it’s because she’s very efficient in multi-tasking and very knowledgeable in what she does. I am now looking forward to moving closer to work and school and a better commute, thanks to Helen and her team. I will not hesitate to hire Helen again for future listings.

Caroline Budianto – 98 Open Pkwy S., Hawthorn Woods IL

Helen sold our home in only 12 days and we got an incredible price!!

Helen and her team were absolutely amazing. Helen’s experience and knowledge of Hawthorn Woods area is incredible and she really knows her business. We were shocked at how soon our home sold and we contribute that success to Helen’s expertise in the Country Club. Communications was key for us and she and her team were outstanding!!

We would highly recommend Helen. She is simply the best. We want to thank you and your team for your hard work and commitment to sell our home!!

John and Patty Toogood – 39 Red Tail Drive, Hawthorn Woods IL

Wow! What a whirlwind 5 weeks!  I just want to take a moment and thank you both for all the hard work you have put in over the past several weeks.  Your professionalism is to be commended.  Tim and I both feel, if we had listed with you last summer, our home would have been sold then.

I also want to thank you for the special gift, it was very thoughtful and I look forward to enjoying it!  This house was Tim’s favorite home, so he was most thankful.  We truly appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Patty and Tim Miller – 50 Carlisle Rd., Hawthorn Woods IL

Helen is easy to work with and instills confidence that she can get the job done. All of The Helen Oliveri Team I dealt with were very professional and friendly. In particular, I found Alison to be very efficient and customer-service oriented. My home was marketed quite well in that Helen sold my house in 30 days. Unlike other agents I spoke with or have dealt with in the past Helen focused on the positive aspects of my house and marketed to those strengths instead of dwelling on all the things I had to do to make my house more marketable. Obviously that paid off for me. I would strongly recommend the Helen Oliveri team to anyone wishing to sell their house.BTW, Helen is also a delight and fun to work with.

Jim Capuzzo – 7 University Circle, Hawthorn Woods

Bottom line is she sold our home when I don’t think many others would of as evidence by the other homes for sale in our neighborhood.

Bottom line again, Helen and her team are top notch and if your looking to sell or buy I don’t see how you could go wrong choosing her.

Barry Buchman – 20 Thornfield Ln, Hawthorn Woods IL

Jim Capuzzo – 7 University Circle, Hawthorn Woods

Helen is very personable and gives you the straight answers that are needed in order to sell your house. She has a plan, and follows through with what she says. Her team is made up of wonderful people who are always pleasant and gets the answers to any questions or concerns that I have had. A member of her team, helped us find our new house. He worked with us and after a few times out looking, he knew what we were looking for and eliminated wasted trips to view homes knowing they were not what we would like. The whole team kept us up-to-date from start to finish on the sale of our home and the purchase of our new one and are still helping us through the upcoming closings. My husband and I are so impressed with Helen and her way of doing business. She is upfront, marketed our house through various medias, brochures, mailings, etc. She is non-stop and got us sold! If you are ever looking for someone to market and sell your home, contact the Helen Oliveri Team. They are extremely knowledgeable on how to buy and sell homes and if you look at her record of sales, you would agree. She listens to her clients, is honest, and addresses all concerns. It has been a pleasure working with her and her team! The word excellent says it all! Start to finish!!!

Pam and Tom Wilkiel – 17 Hawthorn Grove Circle, Hawthorn Woods IL / Bought 1049 Hummingbird Way, Bartlett IL

Helen and her team operates in a very professional and courteous manner. Everything was handled well from the beginning through the closing process. Would gladly recommend her services to anyone.

Ken and Kathleen Pekala – 53 Mark Dr.,  Hawthorn Woods IL

Helen, thanks too, for all your help selling the condo. You were always there to answer our questions and guide us through some difficult issues. All was much appreciated. Hope to see you soon.

Judy and Marios Zenios – 40 Prairie Park Drive, Unit 709, Wheeling IL

My experience with Helen was excellent and I would recommend Helen to friends and neighbors. Helen’s team was always professional and kept me up to date. Our overall experience with Helen and her team was excellent.

Rachel and Matthew Umhoefer – 59 Harborside Way, Hawthorn Woods, IL

Helen’s personal style and consistent, transparent communication was well beyond my expectations. Helen’s entire team truly made me feel as if we were her sole focus when I know the reality is she multi tasks well and is able to give all clients individual attention and reassurance. The sale of my home occurred during a very difficult time in life and the real estate market decline added to an already stressful situation. I am beyond grateful that it was Helen and her team who carried us through the roller coaster known as our house sale. Without her I am more than sure we would not have sold it and potentially ended up in foreclosure. Helen is exactly what I needed during negotiations. She never made me feel stupid about the process nor did she do anything but lend an ear during a time of strife. Without question, I would recommend and use her services again.

Kathleen Wallis – 100 Open Parkway S., Hawthorn Woods IL

The property that Helen listed and sold for us was our 6th home we have sold. Our experience was amazing. Helen is an outstanding broker, and knows her business better than any other realtor we have ever worked with. We were not prepared to sign with Helen when we were considering selling, feeling we hadn’t done enough research, however, signed with her our first meeting. Helen is so very professional, and both my husband and I were impressed with her knowledge of her business. She is a top producer for a reason. I very highly recommend using Helen Olivieri as your broker/realtor when selling a home. She is outstanding at what she does.

Patti and Jason Newby – 27 Eagle Ridge Drive, Hawthorn Woods IL

Helen was very helpful and honest when listing our house, telling us not what we wanted to hear but she knew would sell our house. She was informative and great with helping us stage our house and get the best from selling it. Helen’s team was always prompt when calling and setting up appointments, were wonderful answering questions we had and were always courteous and helpful when needed. Helen and her team were prompt and right on time with everything that happened with the sale of the house. Our property was listed on most every site we could find for house sales and we loved the color brochures and the pictures that were taken when listing the house. We were very pleased with Helen Oliveri and her real estate team. They helped sell our house in a matter of months and were always on top of things and were there to answer any questions we had. We would refer anyone to Helen and her team.

Mimi and Tom Baumgartner – 1301 Regent Drive, Mundelein IL

A lot of things set Helen apart from the other realtors. Her level of expertise in the area, her level of dedication is like nothing I’ve ever seen before, but mostly is clear she loves what she does and that goes a long way in satisfying her customers. She loves her job and she loves her clients. She was not the first realtor we chose, and the experience with Helen was completely different than anyone else we’ve worked with. The reaction time and attention to detail, it was like she was selling her own home. It felt like she was doing everything she could to keep the showings coming.

What I liked best was that she always made us feel like we were her most important customer. She was always available to take calls, even in the evenings and on weekends to make sure we knew exactly what was going on. She wasn’t a realtor, she was our friend. I would send a text message thinking I would get a response the next day, and bam – the response was there.

Her enthusiasm really shined through to even help the buyers see our home in a new way, beyond just the facts. I would rate Helen the highest among the realtors in our area. We were always so glad that we with Helen. We would definitely recommend Helen.

Ania and Steve VanDyke – 19 Championship, Hawthorn Woods IL

We have just listed our home with Helen. She is very honest and upfront about the listing and selling procedures, very aggressive with getting the house marketed and has a wonderful staff working with her to get things going! My husband and I are very happy with our decision to list with her.

Pam and Tom Wilkiel – 17 Hawthorn Grove Circle, Hawthorn Woods IL / Bought 1049 Hummingbird Way, Bartlett IL

Helen was professional and knowledgeable in her field. Well prepared for first meeting. Helen was warm & friendly. Always kept me really informed. Her team was knowledgeable, supportive and responded quickly to all requests. The team kept me informed through every step of the process. I would highly recommend Helen and her team. They were knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, easily accessible and supportive throughout the entire process.

Maureen Gregory – 400 Blue Jay, Mt. Prospect 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.

Joan Haufschild – 40 Darlington Dr, Hawthorn Woods, IL

Helen was great during the whole sale process. Every time I would call she would pick up ready to talk about anything. I have never experienced this level of service from a real estate agent. Helen is also very honest, she knows what needs to get done to sell a home. Our home was sold after 8 days of being on the market, even with being an interior town home unit which are not in high demand right now. Want your home SOLD? Talk to Helen.

Thanks Helen!

Alex and Dana Zenios – 25 Harborside Way, Hawthorn Woods, IL

My experience in working with Helen Oliveri was good. She provided very thorough marketing and good advise. It was great on how I was made aware of the process of my home sale. Also, my property was marketed excellently! My overall experience with Helen and her team was excellent. My house was difficult to sell and Helen helped it happen quickly.

Clare Sutherland –8416 North Greenwood Avenue, Niles, IL

Helen was very knowledgeable, professional and a joy to work with on my home sale. Also, the team kept me informed each step of the way. They were available to answer questions and I was never asked to wait on hold. Great response time. They would call or text (which I think is great) with information. Furthermore, they marketed my property immediately and we had showings immediately. I was sent the links to the online marketing. Very strong marketing skills on behalf of Helen and her team. We are very happy with the results we received. We will use Helen Oliveri next time!

Deanna Hansen – 1781 Tudor Ln. #108, Northbrook, IL

Our experience with Helen was excellent. She was always available to answer questions and provide assistance. Her team was very responsive with great follow up. Helen personally provided updates! We feel our property was marketed excellent. This is where Helen and her team truly shine. Their marketing approach is by far the best. I knew Helen and her team would be professional, responsive and go above and beyond to help us sell our home. Ohm and 20 days later, we did. That’s impressive! Helen and her team are amazing. The turnaround from our initial meeting to marketing was 2 days. We were in constant communication regarding showings, feedback, and open house preparation. We were motivated sellers and we certainly had a motivated realtor. Simply stated, Helen showed she cared and helped us to achieve a great outcome.

Dawn and Joe Zavalishin – 60 Tournament Dr. N, Hawthorn Woods IL

Helen is a marketing genius. I never expected the response I received on my house. She also answered all my questions and made a stressful experience easy. My experience with the team was terrific. My calls were always returned promptly and actions were followed through quickly. Working with Helen was great and I really felt I was kept informed and given good advice. All I can say is I am glad Helen and her team were the ones selling my house. I have had nothing but good things to say whenever I am asked about my experience. The results speaks for itself.

Laura Dassa – 3115 Crestwood Ln., Glenview, IL

Helen is very professional, and has a warm personality. Also, her team did a good job. Helen is a great communicator. We emailed, texted, and used the cell phone frequently. Helen used all the social media for marketing. I feel Helen did a great professional job selling our home and keeping the deal together. Helen became a friend of ours during this sales process. She always puts the customer first and understands relationship building. Helen follows the market closely and provides current honest market evaluation and comparison data. She works well with other brokers and attorneys. I would highly recommend her for future real estate business.

Gary L. Meyer and Carol Meyer – 61 Tournament Dr. N., Hawthorn Woods, IL

We could tell Helen was a busy woman, but she always made time for us when we needed to talk with her. Her whole team was considerate, up-to-date and professional. The photos were excellent and the website coverage (a key) was excellent. They were professional, competent…with a personal touch! Helen and her team have perfected the art of selling a home. From the moment she introduced herself and her marketing plan, we felt confident Helen would sell our townhouse, and she did not disappoint. We received an offer after the second showing.

Thank you, Helen and team. We’re grateful to have been guided by your expertise.

Dan and Laurie Cummins – 13 Red Tail Dr., Hawthorn Woods, IL

Helen is the consummate professional, working tirelessly for her customers, offering objective advice, available 24/7, and with an extensive knowledge of the real estate market. Helen’s staff is equally attentive; well-trained in customer service. We feel we were updated on the sale of our home extremely well. You name it–phone calls, texting, emailing, all modes of communication used to keep us up-to-the minute. Also, our property was marketed excellent. We received two offers in 2 days–need I say more? Helen is “the best of the best”, combining outstanding knowledge of the real estate market, fantastic instincts about negotiation strategy, and an ever-present professional demeanor. Helen obviously enjoys what she does and was a pleasure to work with from the moment we met her until closing. Helen has our highest recommendations!

Barry and Kendra Rosen – 4653 Lake Point Circle, Long Grove, IL / Bought 83 Tournament Dr. N. Hawthorn Woods, IL

Our experience in working with Helen Oliveri was excellent. She has great knowledge of the local market, great advice on every aspect of the transaction and great service. She and her team were a huge help. The team was always there any time we had a question, wanted to see a house or needed some assistance. We got updates quickly on every issue. Our property was marketed excellent. We had the right price and were visible to anyone in the market which resulted in a lot of showings. Our experience was terrific and I’ll recommend Helen to every buyer or seller I know. We were very pleased with the whole process. We both work a lot of hours and Helen and her team took care of everything. When we had questions she and her team had answers. She’s pulled together a great group of professionals and I will definitely work with her again if we decide to buy or sell another property.

Frank and JoAnn O’Connell – Sold 3 Somerset Hills Court Hawthorn Woods, IL / Bought 1835 Turtle Bay Rd. Vernon Hills, IL

Helen is very professional, honest, and her experience shows. Also, her team was very courteous and helpful. I felt that whoever I was speaking with was aware of the property and could help answer my questions. If not, they were quick to find Helen and connect me with her or get my questions answered. I was very impressed with the number of online and print resources created quickly in order to market the house in a timely manner. I also liked the updates of views from the various websites and the online portal so I could track showings and feedback. I’m sure your internal networking also did a lot for moving this property quickly. It was evident in the number of showings that people were seeing the information! Thank you for all your help.

Meghan and Jim Keefer – 7237 Lake S., Morton Grove, IL

From beginning to end, Helen not only set the expectation for success but then followed through on her promise. Helen sets the bar very high for herself and still manages to go above and beyond. With constant contact from either Helen or a member of her team there were no surprises. The transaction was smooth from beginning to end. She was able to sell our condo in less than 30 days when it had been listed two prior times for 3 months or longer. Helen promised to utilize her networking abilities as well as the traditional marketing (flyers, website traffic, etc.) to help us accomplish our goal of selling in the shortest time for the highest price. From beginning to end, the transaction went smoothly. The organization and attention to detail is fantastic. While her team took care of most of the process\logistics, Helen remained completely accessible if my wife or I had any questions. Helen’s team is very professional, courteous and superb in following up. If we had to name one thing to do differently, it would only be that we didn’t utilize Helen’s real estate attorney resource for our transaction.

Even several months later, our respect and appreciation for Helen and her team’s efforts on our behalf cannot be adequately expressed. If you’re considering a move (either buying or selling), Helen truly is your best move!

Justin and Meredith Embree – 1501 Oak Ave #505, Evanston IL

We rate our overall experience with Helen Oliveri and the Helen Oliveri Team as excellent. The team was especially patient and understanding during a time that was emotionally tense for us. Thanks for your help! Everyone from Helen, to Wyn to all the office people were very prompt in helping us with whatever we needed. Thanks!

Karen and Phil Dickert – Sold 4 Ruffled Feathers Ct., Hawthorn Woods, IL / Bought 26 Stonebridge Way, Mundelein, IL

Selling your home is stressful but not with Helen. She will guide you completely through the process. Also, working with the team was excellent. The team will keep you updated and help you with any questions or concerns along the way. I felt my home was marketed excellent. Honest and effective marketing. We were interested in selling our home not just listing it.

Reno and Jean Nuara – 26 Red Tail Drive, Hawthorn Woods, IL

Helen is a pleasure to work with. She is very knowledgeable about the current market and gives good and honest advice regarding pricing. She responds to phone calls and email in a very timely way. She has surrounded herself with a great team of professionals and they get the job done! I will recommend her to anyone looking for a great realtor.

Mark and Bernadette Krzmarzick – Sold 53 Tournament Dr. S,  Hawthorn Woods, IL / Bought 26 Briar Creek, Hawthorn Woods, IL

We just wanted to thank the Helen Oliveri Team for all of their hard work and dedication when helping us find our first home! We were beyond impressed with the quality of their service, their accessibility and their willingness to go above and beyond in ensuring that we did not have any issues during the entire buying process. If you are looking for someone to help you find your dream home, Helen and her team are the absolute best people for the job! Thank you again to the entire team. You helped make our dreams a reality!

Thank you again for everything!

Kayla DiMenna – 1400 E. Barberry Ln., Mt. Prospect, IL

My experience working with Helen Oliveri was excellent. She is the pit bull of real estate! Not only knowledgeable and professional but very aggressive when it comes to selling your home. Over all working with Helen and her top notch team was a great experience. I would highly recommend them if you need to sell your home fast! Despite having so many listings she was always easy to get ahold of. Her knowledge of our local market was exceptional! And her enthusiasm towards getting our home sold never let me down. I would highly recommend using Helen for all your real estate needs.

Sarah and Eric Cowden – Sold 63 Tournament Drive S., Hawthorn Woods, IL / Bought 4 Juel Dr. Hawthorn Woods, IL

Helen knows the real estate marketplace for our area and priced our home at a competitive price for the home to sell quickly. Helen’s team was experienced throughout the process both on the marketing side and in working with the legal team assigned regarding the sale. Any questions that I had during the sales process were answered in a timely manner. We had a number of showings on the property due to signs, and the internet postings that Helen provided. From start to completion of the sale of the home, all of the guesswork was handled by Helen and her team, making the process very easy.

Mike and Pam Neri – 51 Tournament Dr. S., Hawthorn Woods, IL

Helen is an expert at marketing your home and takes full advantage of every marketing channel available. She is responsive and knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. The Helen Oliveri Team is a well oiled machine focused on meeting your needs. They were always quick to respond and make sure that we were aware of whatever was going on in the market and specifically regarding the sale of our home. They gave us weekly updates and a steady stream of potential buyers. They really pull out all the stops to get your home sold. We really appreciated the professionalism of the team and, even when we got cold feet and were in a panic, they talked us off the ledge. The team took us through the sale of one home and the purchase of a new home and we couldn’t be happier. Well done Helen Oliveri Team!!!

Karen and Phil Dickert – Sold 4 Ruffled Feathers Ct., Hawthorn Woods, IL / Bought 26 Stonebridge Way, Mundelein, IL

Dear HELEN, I just want to thank HELEN OLIVERI, your company is #1. I trust you, HELEN you are the BEST.
Thank you again for everything.

Ba Phan – 705 Albany Ln, Des Plaines IL

My experience working with Helen Oliveri and The Helen Oliveri Team was excellent. My property was marketed excellent!

Justin Annes and Victoria Pietrasik – 65 Tournament Drive N., 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.

Joe and Nancy Tautges – 75 Tournament Dr. N., Hawthorn Woods, IL

We felt that Helen and her team did a terrific job for us. We were very pleased to be able to sell the property so quickly. And appreciate all of Helen’s direction in getting the house staged.

Thanks for all your support and help during the selling process.

Tom and Patti Meyers – 1402 Apricot Court, Mt. Prospect, IL

Helen did a very good job. She was professional throughout the entire experience and always available with an immediate response turnaround time. I felt they had great marketing! It was a pleasure working with you Helen! Thank you for all of your assistance during our home purchase and our rental of our townhome.

Danica and Steve Gulyas – 51 Harborside Way, Hawthorn Woods and 125 Cranberry Court, Lake Barrington, 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!

Diane Hart – 7252 N. Oconto, Chicago, 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.

Nick and Irene Makropoulos – Sold 538 Dulles Rd., Des Plaines / Bought 1705 Frediani Ct., Mt. Prospect, 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.

Jeff Dewey – 2227 Harrison Street, Glenview, 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?

John and Jaimie Barringer – 78 Tournament Drive S., Hawthorn Woods, 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.

Sheldon and Vicki Goldberg – 7339 Davis St., Morton Grove, 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!

Lori and Kevin Kelleher – 15 Twin Eagles, 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!

Jim and Angela Korompilas – 38 Tournament Drive S., Hawthorn Woods, IL

My sale was not your average sale. I had a number of extenuating circumstances that made my deal difficult. Helen dealt with those circumstances and brought the deal to a successful close. I locked myself out of my house on two occasions and Helen’s team was able to “beam” a code to the lock box and on a real time basis get me access. My overall experience with Helen Oliveri and the Helen Oliveri Team was excellent. We sold at 94% of the asking price.

Kevin Weller – 19 Eagle Ridge, Hawthorn Woods, 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.

Helen has a great business model. She does what she knows best, and her team does what they know best. Communication with the office was great, and we always felt that Helen was just a phone call or email away. I would highly recommend Helen for the selling of your home.

Ly Nguyen – 9128 Mason Ave., Morton Grove, IL

I must tell you, your staff is the kindest, most courtesy, helpful people I have ever run across. It is a pleasure to work with them. Thank you again for your prompt assistance.

Roseanne Stavros
Century 21 Agent

We would whole heartedly nominate you for “Realtor of the Year”. We are convinced that it was your superior skills as a realtor that enabled you to sell our townhouse so quickly in this extremely difficult market. Hiring you as our agent was really ‘our best move’. Thank you very much.

James & Lolita Cox – Zion, IL

Helen is very knowledgeable, very motivated, well organized and personable. Everyone on Helen’s team works well together and with the client to accomplish the objective – sell houses! Helen’s team gave me status reports and updates very frequently. I feel my home in Glenview was marketed excellent and the property sold so quickly. I rate my experience with Helen Oliveri and The Helen Oliveri Team just outstanding. At the end of the day, our house had been on the market for a year with a different agent and had not been sold. The house sold in 28 days after I listed it with Helen Oliveri and The Helen Oliveri Team and that is what it is all about.

Don & Linda Van Dyke – 11 Washington St., Glenview, IL

Thank you so much for all your help with my new condo! It has been a wonderful pleasure working with both of you. My new home is beautiful! Thank you also for the gift basket! The items will certainly come in handy and they were all on my shopping list! In addition, the closing was painless!
I will miss working with all of you. I certainly will recommend your team to friends and family every time the opportunity arises! You make a great team!

Rosi Odulio – Chicago, IL

Helen was very personable and passionate about wanting to work with us. We were exceedingly happy that our home sold so quickly when all other houses in our neighborhood (NOT being offered by Helen!) have been on the market for months, some for well over a year. Helen and her team are real “go-getters” and seemed to want the house to sell as much as we did.

We GREATLY APPRECIATE all of your combined efforts! THANK YOU for making this such a pleasant experience for us, especially in this poor market. You work so well together, making a terrific team!

Ray & Gail Chapman – 340 Hazelwood Ln., Glenview, IL

From the moment we met Helen we knew that buying our new condo was going to be a wonderful experience. Helen presents herself in a very professional manner but with “something extra”. That “something extra” is her infectious enthusiasm combined with a rare commitment to providing the best service possible. I found our property while surfing the net early one morning and I called and left a message for Helen. To my amazement Helen called me back an hour later and set up an appointment for that very evening. When my partner and I met Helen and her husband Danny we felt as though we were reconnecting with old friends. I later discovered that was due (in part) to seeing Helen perform many times in “Tony and Tina’s Wedding! We listened as Helen took us through the marketing materials for the property and we were struck by the quality, the number, and the type of amenities offered. To our (and Helen’s) surprise made another appointment and bought the property the next day!

Since our new home was not yet built Helen provided us with weekly updates on the construction progress. Helen had us meet with the project manager to answer all of our questions regarding possibilities for our new condo. We wanted to include as many upgrades as possible and Helen and her team made the process easy. Every time we had a question for Helen about one aspect or another we were provided an answer in very short order. If she did not have the answer Helen promised to get one for us as soon as possible—and she always followed through. Helen even provided us with crucial contacts for the home buying process. She gave us her personal real estate attorney’s contact information as well as a reliable home inspector.

As the closing date drew near and we were anxious to move into our new home we knew that Helen was going to bat for us. As the mortgage industry was going through the crisis Helen was watching the situation carefully and was very proactive in assisting us in finding financing for our new home. If it had not been for Helen’s savvy intervention on our behalf we would have found ourselves without a mortgage! After we closed Helen sent us a basket “new home” goodies came in very handy!

Helen Oliveri and her team rendered the usually painful process of home buying as stress free as possible. Working with Helen wound up being what she and her entire team always says, “My pleasure!” At the end of the day we give Helen and her team a qualified and enthusiastic “rave” review.

Gary Sheehan & Gerald See –  Des Plaines, IL

My experience with Helen Oliveri was excellent and she was very in tune with the market. She is a real professional. Helen’s team was also excellent; the staff was constantly aware of what was going on with each individual deal. There was never any back and forth and everyone on the team was on the same page and the weekly calls and updates are great. Helen’s marketing was tremendous! I have never seen anything like it. The brochures and CD’s were great. My construction lender was at the property one day and was so impressed with the marketing materials. It gave me and her so much more credibility. My overall experience with Helen Oliveri and her team was just amazing. I have been building for 15 years and without a doubt she and her team is the best. Being in the business and realizing what the market conditions are, she was phenomenal. She has a true understanding of marketing and is not just going through the motions. She is highly self-motivated which makes me feel at ease as to not having to hound her or her team for answers. It truly feels like she is on my team. When dealing with Helen and her team you feel like she is only working for you. Danny and Alison are probably the best support staff I have ever encountered in the industry. I would recommend The Helen Oliveri Team to anyone with 100% confidence.

Kevin Walsh – Chicago, IL

Helen and The Helen Oliveri Team are simply the best real estate team I have ever known. I have built and sold many homes in my life and never EVER have I experienced such professionalism, market expertise and customer care as I have with Helen and her team. They were there always with a smile, handling literally every aspect of my sale without reservation. They even supervised my move, cleaned my home personally and even took care of all of my closing documents without question. Helen is always personally available and made me feel like her closest friend and confidant and she fought for me unlike anyone I know. I am so confident in Helen and her team and I would recommend them without hesitation. This has been a hard time for me and she was there both as my real estate professional and as my friend and her team is phenomenal. I will always use Helen Oliveri and her team for any and all future real estate transactions. Thank you for selling my home in such a tough market….Helen you are the BEST!!

Jodi Westphal – Sold in Hawthorn Woods, IL & Bought in Northbrook, IL

We were so very pleased to have you as our selling agent and having your company represent us. You definitely exhibited the dedication warranted by your profession. You have a keen sense for knowing the right type of customer service required, advertising, presentations, customer base, financial’s, innovative approaches and market strategies. We were especially impressed by your personal touch and concern for our interest, market in-puts and follow-up, quick turnaround time, and knowledge of your field. Also, the extra care taken to keep an eye on our property and keeping the unit clean for us while we were out of town. You should be proud of what you do as you definitely stand out as a extremely highly qualified real estate agent, one who presents themself as a top agent and expresses confidence in your profession.

We never felt you ever let us down and were always looking out for our best interest. Should you need us as a reference please don’t hesitate to call.

Elliot and Pat Bedrosian – Palatine, IL

Helen Oliveri and her team represent the highest professional level of expertise and customer service skills. Helen’s knowledge of the current market helped us sell our house in a very short period of time, which is really amazing in today’s difficult real estate environment. Being a real estate professional (as we own a title company) we can appreciate her expertise in the field. As our title company conducted the closing, we could first hand witness her professionalism. She not only knew the specific requirements of the market, but also handled the transaction with attention to detail to fulfill the needs of her clients. We will recommend Helen and her team to anyone looking for a qualified agent to sell their home.

I felt as though I had a trusted friend by my side each and every step of the way while buying my very first home. Helen is honest and genuine, an invaluable trait in a friend, so you can imagine how pleased I was to find it in an agent! She answered all of my questions and explained the things I didn’t understand without making me feel silly or inferior. I feel confident that she treats all of her clients with the dignity and respect they deserve when buying or selling a home. When the time comes, I won’t hesitate to entrust the sale of my home to Helen Oliveri. Working with her was truly a pleasure!

Canella Mullins – Zion, IL

Helen’s knowledge of houses in the Countryside area was invaluable when obtaining statistics for my Mom’s house and the eventual sale in Glenview. She always listened to my concerns and suggestions and in turn guided me in the right direction. The rest of the team was very helpful whether on the phone or me stopping by the office. The feedback was great; I was updated constantly. Also, my Mom’s property was marketed very well, and I feel had a lot of exposure through all the realtors. My overall experience was excellent. Helen and her team were great to work with and always had my best interests at heart when it came to selling my Mom’s house. I was very impressed by how they all had a very positive attitude, in spite of the economy. Everyone was very accessible and answered my questions quickly. I would definitely recommend The Helen Oliveri Team to anyone who would be interested in selling their house!

Pattie Sharkey – Glenview, IL

I asked if Julieann and I could write this letter because of the way the two of you saw us through a tough situation. The sale of our house was tricky at best. I had been in the house for 28 years, so I had no idea of the market or what to expect of the process. Your honesty and humor kept heads clear and things light.

Even with the purchase and closing of your own home, you returned every call within minutes so that we could ask questions and in most cases, got us the answers the same day. You told us what the marketing plan was going to be and you did everything you said you would.

I’ve been in sales most of my adult life and must say that I’ve never run into a team such as yourselves. The lines of responsibility were very clear between the two of you making it easy for Julieann and myself to feel reassured that you were ALWAYS on top of things.

We had made the mistake of first signing with another team…..their claims being much the same as yours. What we learned was claims are one thing, but living up to them is another thing altogether. That experience made us even more “gun shy” of your claims of service and attention.

You lived up to and went beyond every claim.

Your work ethics and attention to detail inspired us to ask if we could put this letter together.

I have never done one of these letters before, but I knew I would have been remiss if we didn’t somehow try to offer the two of you the help that you gave us.

Thank you so much
Jerry & Juliann Wexler – Sold in Highland Park, IL & Bought in Barrington, IL

Thank you so much for all your help in selling our home. We have had a fantastic experience with you! We are still in shock that you sold our home before the sign was put in the yard!!What a pleasure it has been to receive “play by play” communication. We felt secure & well-informed each step of the way. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Steve & Misti Wiggins – Mount Prospect, IL

Helen, you work so hard and we are so happy with the way you handled both of our transactions. Your communication and execution went above and beyond! You do it all, and you do it well.

Patty Allekian, client

Her dedication, professionalism and knowledge in business are truly amazing.

Chris Bozek, 1st Liberty Banc

You and your team were awesome every step of the way. Your weekly updates provided us comfort to know you were working towards our goals and selling our commercial property. Vacant commercial land is not easy to sell but your hard work put a check in our hands! You will receive many referrals as a result of your efforts! Thanks!
John W. Barringer – 78 Tournament Drive South, Hawthorn Woods, IL
The Miramar Group INC. – President

I really did not know Helen and her team too well, because Helen sold my house in a week! The first thing that Helen impressed me is her punctuality. Before I selected Helen as my realtor, I interviewed several others. A couple of them came late, though they called ahead. One of them was 30 minutes late and did not even bother to call me. Helen’s follow-up is excellent. She kept me informed during the whole process and always returned my calls promptly. I would absolutely refer anyone to Helen for her real estate service.

Benny Cheung – Morton Grove, IL

We want to thank you for a job well done! In deciding who would list the house, we were very impressed with your knowledge, professional presentation, but most of all, your enthusiasm. We are Real Estate Brokers who relied on a broker familiar with the area and expected a high level of professionalism. You exceeded every expectation. We will recommend you at every opportunity.

Earl & Margo Stafford – Chicago, IL
Karen Kudlinski

Many thanks to you for being so terrific in selling our house. We’ve owned/sold seven homes in the past, and your knowledge and experience have surpassed all our expectations. No other realtor experience comes close.

We had our house up for sale six months with a limited service realtor, only to be constantly disappointed. You turned things around for us in six weeks! And for a selling price we were happy with.

Our only regret is that we didn’t sign up with you in the first place. You people are serious – and it’s so obvious that you love what you do.

Bottom line, we’ll recommend you to anyone who wants to experience real professionalism and real action! You’re the best Helen!

All of ours,
Ed & Gail Tossing – Glenview, IL

Developers appreciate she’s competent and confident in her abilities.

Helen responds immediately to questions and concerns and is really on top of her business.

She sells like crazy and she works like crazy and she’s just right there all the time – nobody’s as good as she is.

Helen Oliveri, you are a true professional and I only trust you with my real estate transactions. You found me so many great properties and finally, our dream home. We are so lucky to have you and you are a part of our family. Thanks for all your hard work. You are the best.
