What do Clients Say?
I purchased my first home with Corinne and was extremely impressed with her. When it came time to buy a new house, I went straight to her and within a short period of time, we were closed. She is very knowledgeable on multiple platforms and truly looks out for her clients' best interest. When buying/selling a home, one of the hardest things is the ability to manage so many moving parts. With Corinne, it's absolutely seamless. Communicating with her is so easy; quick replies, fast action. Simply, she's the best there is.Sarah Dargis
I met Corinne in 2011 when I was looking for a house in the Lake Barrington Shores development. She was wonderful. She quickly figured out my needs and understood I did not have much time and helped me find just the right townhouse and then negotiated an excellent price.I immediately moved abroad and she became my rental agent. Unfortunately, I ended up with four different renters in three years and several brought their own sets of issues, but Corinne handled it all professionally and quickly.It is hard to put a price on that kind of peace of mind when you are thousands of miles away. Finally, as I prepared to return to Illinois she helped out in large and small ways as I tried to manage a renovation of my property from long-distance. Inevitably, things went wrong but Corinne was there to keep me informed and to do what she could to put things back on track.I am so incredibly grateful because it is difficult to find someone who will give you excellent advice and service and is so dedicated to her clients. When I can finally sit in my renovated townhouse and enjoy my home in LBS, I will have Corinne to thank.Keith Peterson
Corinne did a wonderful job guiding us through our home buying experience in Barrington. She took the time to understand the needs of my family and went to work. Corinne is an extremely knowledgeable individual on the surrounding area and has a no nonsense sales approach. She never tried to sell us on one property or another. She guided without strong opinion, and that is hard to find this day and age. Thank you for everything Corinne, you are more than our Realtor, we consider you a friend.Dan & Kaycee Coles
If you're in the market for a Realtor in the Barrington area, look no further.We were looking for a house in Barrington with very specific criteria and it took us over 4 years to find the perfect place, thanks to all the help from Corinne. She was patient, honest and an absolute pleasure to work with. On a scale of 1-10, she is 10+.Both my wife and I could not think of anything that Corinne could do to improve. Her professionalism and ethics are what other Realtors should be measured against. Thank you Corinne and we wish you all the best.Detlef & Brigitte Schmidt
Holly and I know real estate brokers/agents and you, Mrs. Guest, are no real estate broker—-at least in terms of the common perception. A guru? Possibly. An advisor? Definitely. Hopefully, even a friend.If our experience with you is indicative of the manner in which you deal with your clients (and we are sure it is) you are going to give real estate brokers a good name.Holly and I hope to convey our heartfelt thanks for your assistance and guidance. As you know, our Lake Barrington search spanned three years and four buyer’s agents and we both feel you were a major element in allowing us to reach a successful conclusion. Not only were you always available and patient, but alone among the buyer’s agents we worked with, you actually listened to and acted upon what we wanted. Never did we feel (as we did with other agents) any push to action so that you might earn your commission, nor did you ever seek to push your own sensibilities regarding any prospect. Yet, when we did seek your opinion, you always provided reasoned and incisive advice.We will definitely ensure that everyone we know is aware of your talent. If we can be of service to you by acting as a reference for future clients, please don’t hesitate to use our contact information.Thank you also for the picture of the new addition to your crane family. Holly is so taken with the photo, she is considering enlarging and framing it!Again, thanks for everything.John & Holly Polacek
Corinne’s natural point of aim, the thing she loves to do most, is help home buyers. With a personal history of family relocation, Corinne understands the nuances of relocation buyers as well as local buyers. Helping buyers means learning about their dreams, needs and wants, and matching them to the perfect property, but staying within the budget allowed. Advanced skills in the luxury market have helped Corinne match high dollar value home buyers to their dream homes while remaining cognizant of aspects such as re-sale and investment.
Understanding the Barrington real estate market and available inventory is something Corinne makes sure to stay aware of at all times. Corinne becomes totally immersed in her buyers quest for a new home and is not afraid to guide buyers away if she feels it’s not a good match.
