“Seamless Home Selling and Buying Experience with Helen Oliveri! I recently had the pleasure of working with Helen Oliveri as my realtor for both selling my previous home and purchasing a new one in Hawthorn Woods, Illinois. Helen's expertise, professionalism, and dedication made the entire process smooth and stress-free. When it came to selling my home, Helen's strategic approach and market knowledge resulted in a quick sale at a great price. She provided valuable insights on staging, pricing, and marketing, which undoubtedly contributed to the success of the sale. On the buying side, Helen listened attentively to my preferences and worked tirelessly to find properties that matched my criteria. Her patience, attention to detail, and negotiation skills were instrumental in securing my new dream home in Hawthorn Woods. Throughout both transactions, Helen was always available to answer any questions and address any concerns I had. Her responsiveness and proactive communication ensured that I felt supported and informed every step of the way. Thanks to Helen's expertise and guidance, I successfully sold my home and found a new one that I absolutely love.

“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.”

19 Championship, 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.”

1301 Regent Drive, Mundelein 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.”

27 Eagle Ridge Drive, 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.”

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.

“Helen marketed my property quite well in that she sold my house in 30 days.

Obviously that paid off for me. I would strongly recommend the Helen Oliveri team to anyone wishing to sell their house.”

“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!”

“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!”

“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.”

“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.”

“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!”

“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

“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!”

“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.”

“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.”

“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

“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.”

Sold – 11 Cambridge Dr, Hawthorn Wood, Bought – 2662 Water Lily, Wauconda

“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!!”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
