Testimonials - Anne & Meredith
Here is what a few people have to say about Anne & Meredith's service...
Meredith was great. She went the extra mile to make sure everything was right, from pricing, to addressing inspection issues, to making sure we could get few things fixed...after the closing!
John & Erin, Evanston
Working with Meredith to sell and purchase a home was a truly wonderful experience. Meredith is professional, knowledgeable, a good negotiator, and a hard worker. It was a pleasure to work with her and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Evanston.
Anne & Meredith were great to work with on the sale of my rental house. They were very professional & patient, and they provided great advice & recommendations on improvements that I made to the house.
Sherry & Jong, Wilmette
Meredith was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was responsive, thorough, and always made herself available to me and my husband on short notice if needed. We could count on her to give thoughtful and unbiased feedback on properties, and valued her judgment throughout the process. When it came to a fast moving close, she was prompt and answered all of our questions quickly. Given the opportunity, I would work with Meredith again in a heartbeat.
Tobi & Chris, Skokie
Meredith was amazing throughout the whole process. She guided us respectfully and made the eventual sale of our home incredibly simple.
Alec & Meena, Evanston
Meredith enabled us to buy our dream house! She was extremely helpful every step of the way though the closing and beyond. Highly recommended!
I was very pleased with the attention-to-detail and thoroughness that Meredith exhibited throughout the process of marketing and selling my house. She greatly helped me in making a smooth transition from a house where I lived for 42 years to a new retirement condo. I highly recommend using Meredith as buying and selling broker.
JoEllen, Wilmette & Evanston
Meredith and Anne make a great team. They are each knowledgeable about the market, expert at negotiating, and a pleasure to work with. After 17 years of partnering on both selling and buying homes, I trust and value their integrity.
Meredith is a fantastic broker -- patient, insightful, diligent and responsive. From day 1 of our search, she implicitly understood the type of home that would suit our family's needs.. With each property we toured (and there were many) she was able to offer tremendous insight about the pros and cons of the property, the potential for improvements, and whether the property suited our needs.. She also has an excellent sense of the value of real estate and whether a property is priced right.. Though it took nearly eight months to find the right home, she never became disinterested or impatient. To the contrary, she was adamant that we not settle for a home that did not "check all the boxes" for our us. She reassured us that we would eventually find the "perfect home". And that patience paid off -- we did find the perfect home and we could not be happier.. And Meredith's value does not end after you sign the contract -- she was incredibly helpful leading up to the closing and at the closing itself. She set us up with an inspector, attorney, and contractors, all of whom are affordable and, like Meredith, very good at what they do.. In short, Meredith is the only broker we will use and we intend to refer her to all of our friends and family.
Andy & Chloe, Chicago
Meredith is simply great. She is extremely knowledgeable and gave us great advice - from listing to sale and between. She's the best.
Anne has a tremendous breath of knowledge coupled with her persistence, positive attitude and caring made for me a wonderful experience. I am truly grateful and appreciative. I am very excited about my new home. Thank you.
Meredith was exceptionally helpful throughout the process. She put me in contact with all of the various additional folks who would help with the sale process, from a painter to "spruce up" the place before the first showings to an attorney to help with all of the legal aspects. As a remote seller, this was immensely helpful! Her insights around what price I should initially set based off of other comps in the area and candid discussions about how to react to offers that I received were exceptional. I can't say enough good things about her!
Meredith is a wonderful agent and has helped us secure our ideal home. She is accessible, responsive and knowledgable. I appreciate her assistance greatly and highly recommend her!
Meredith was very helpful in getting us acquainted with the North Shore and quickly became a good judge of what would appeal to us. We conducted this transaction remotely so she played an integral part in the entire process and we were very happy with the quality and quantity of the service she provided. We would definitely recommend Meredith to anyone looking to buy or sell in the North Shore area.
Evan & Jen, Evanston
This is the third time we used a realtor to sell/our purchase a home. However, this most recent sale is the first time we have understood the value of working with a realtor. Meredith and Anne were true professionals. They were responsive, knowledgable and went above & beyond to insure the whole process went smoothly. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again or recommend them to others!
Brian & Meghan, Evanston
This was the most stressful move we have ever had to make our lives and Anne and Meredith took all the stress out of everything. From start to finish, we felt like we were in trusted hands -- experienced, professional, genuine, helpful, straightforward -- everything you could want in a real estate agent and more. What really made me feel so comfortable with them is how knowledgeable and experienced they are. Truly, they were amazing and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone who is looking to purchase a home in the Chicago area. We were new to Chicago and they spent time listening to us to understand our needs, and offered straightforward advice on neighborhoods and homes. Anne's experienced and meticulous review of comps helped us negotiate a great and fair price. Also, they made great recommendations for related services -- every one a winner! They went abo! ve and beyond in so many ways (like offering to get the keys from a contractor and give them to a cleaner before we moved because we were out of town, after the close!).
Liz & Mike, Chicago
Anne - A woman came by the office today and sat me down just to tell me how much she loved you! Her name is also Ann and she speaks for us as well!
Thad Wong, @properties founder
Anne Branning was a great agent! Anne's service can be described as follows: 1) she was dedicated to meeting my needs especially as a first-time home buyer, 2) she expressed genuine care for all of my affairs and was personable - allowing me to feel as if I was her only client, and 3) she was very professional.
Meredith and Anne- I really appreciate all the work and support you both have given over the last nearly six months. I'm sure the ups and downs of real estate are old hat to a couple of pros like you but I was glad to have you by my side when things got really weird. Hopefully, the redecorating and move will be uneventful!
Lori G., Wilmette
Meredith was outstanding - very professional and knowledgeable and kept in constant communication throughout the process, which was extremely helpful since I live 1,000 miles away.
Thank you for all of your help and advice on selling our home. We are grateful for everything and all the long phone calls with my many questions. Stay in close touch!
Brooks & Heidi, Wilmette
Anne Branning is an energetic, enthusiastic person, and you can instantly tell that she is extremely passionate about her work. Her knowledge of the Evanston area is impressive. As first-time home buyers, Anne calmed our nerves about the whole process and helped us through every step, taking the time to answer our questions and address our concerns. We would certainly work with her again!
Michael & Kelly, Evanston
Anne Branning is persistent and unrelenting in her service to her client. She did everything within her power to keep me informed about what I should or needed to do to enhance the sale of my property. She is unbelievable when it comes to face to face encounter with potential buyers or real estate agents representing the buyer. I would recommend her without reservation.
Meredith was fantastic. Very helpful and patient with my large life decision. Meredith was very knowledgeable and skilled in analyzing my needs. Thank you!
David, Lake Zurich
Anne did an excellent job. She staged the house in a way that made it more appealing. She kept in constant communication, marketed it well and provided sound advice about offers.
Meredith is very professional. More than that, I felt she cared a lot. Thank you.
Anne was great to work with. She has a wonderful sense of the housing market, both for those looking to sell and for those looking to rent. So when it became apparent that I was going to need to switch from looking to sell my condo to looking to rent it out (due to the market being well under what I wanted to get), Anne was able to seamlessly shift directions and help me get a great tenant.
Anne helped me through every step of the process, from helping me to get the house ready for showing, navigating all the legal paperwork,communicating with the home association, to negotiating terms and price. I trust her implicitly! She's extrememly professional, experienced, and supportive. Having her represent me, both in buying and selling homes, she has made the experience as painless and successful as possible!
I just wanted to personally thank you for all your efforts in making the sale of the townhouse so effortless on our part. The transaction, overall, was much quicker than anticipated and all of the “behind the scene” details were handled in a professional and efficient manner. Happy new year to you and Meredith, thanks again for everything!
I really appreciate your cooperative & supportive spirit. I recommend you to everyone who asks about a good realtor. You're "good people," as my father used to say.
