What do Clients Say?
Maggie knows what to do and she does it right! Her negotiating skills are worthy of a diplomat! We worked with other agents before her, but Maggie is truly a master of her trade. We achieved our goals in a very complex balance of sale and purchase of 2 homes because of her expertise. Maggie’s excellent negotiation skills helped assure that we received top dollar on our sale. She also helped negotiate the purchase of our new home so we could really afford a home with the amount of space that we need to support our growing family. Maggie was courteous, considerate, knowledgeable, and very energetic. She was always available and made sure that we were kept informed of every showing and went over every detail considering the advantages and disadvantages for both the sale and the buy. She was calm and unemotional when we were not. By constantly keeping an objective outlook on the project, she was extremely effectiveMelissa and Tim Goldenman, Andersonville
Maggie Finegan provided me with exceptional service and consultation in selling my home. Her recommendations for preparing the space for showing, her research of the current market and neighborhood, her insight with my listing price and her professional approach was invaluable. Forthright and honest, I knew I could count on valuable feedback that made the difference in selling in a timely manner. My property sold in four days of listing and closed within 30 days. Furthermore, Maggie plugged me in with professionals that not only assured no problems with the closing, but resources that will help me get to the next level of real estate investing.Phil Solomonson, Lincoln Square
I chose to hire Maggie as my real estate broker for my home due to her enthusiasm, innovative marketing ideas, and the value added services she agreed to perform in conjunction with the sale of my home. I made the right decision in hiring Maggie to sell my home as noted in the services she actually performed and the value she added to the sales price of my home. Most importantly, the net sales price I received for my home after paying the real estate commission was greater than any other home in the area advertised through other brokers. In addition, although Maggie does not generally sell homes in my suburb, she did her homework and was able to sell my home for a greater price than most other homes in my suburb, including homes sold in my suburb by local realtors! It was obvious that Maggie’s performance and results in selling my home were outstanding.Randall Ramey, Riverside
Working with Maggie on the sale of the condo at 1645 W. Addison was one of the most pleasant experience e in my 12 years as a realtor.Pamela Hartman, Broker, Rubloff in Chicago
Maggie Finegan demonstrated the highest level of professional service in the sale of our 6-unit apartment building. She encouraged us to list our building for a higher price than we expected, and sold it for 106% over asking price. Maggie told us about the 1031 Exchange, an IRS approved program that helped us defer $80,000 in capital gains tax on the sale of our property. She also moved quickly in assembling and submitting our bid on the purchase of our new townhouse, so we were able to avoid a bidding war with other buyers.Charles Kadlec, Chicago
