TESTIMONIALS

Mary Beth Malone was awesome. She listened to our needs, limited our visits to condos that fit our criteria, offered truly helpful advice and evaluations of the different units that were visited. She provided us with accurate and honest information about the various units. She was alwaysavailable to take our phone calls and text messages. We never felt pressured to sell or buy. She made a complicated process flow smoothly. As knowledgeable as Mary Beth is, she is even more pleasant and personable. She was great.

Kathleen was wonderful from the moment we started speaking about selling our condo. She was particularly helpful, as we don’t live in Chicago at the moment. She had a good eye for staging, which is important when you have renters in your unit and was flexible with the tenants from the day we put it up for sale. I would highly recommend Kathleen as she makes the stressful process of selling a home much more seamless.

Megan was absolutely amazing and did an above and beyond job with helping us search and purchase our new home! We moved from out of state and Megan was extremely flexible in meeting us when we were in town. Thanks Megan!

I listed my condo with Malone Residential and within days it was under contract. They were so helpful through the process and knew the market and how to price to sell. They were there every step of the way with expert knowledge of each step and process. I would recommend them to anyone. Maureen Dine Glynn was my realtor there and she was wonderful!

We have bought and sold 7 homes in the last 10 years in 3 states and I can honestly say this was the best experience we have had and I will attribute it to Kathleen and Mary Beth. We always felt fully informed on the market conditions and the responsiveness to our needs as buyers was the best we’ve ever experienced. Not to mention they are two of the nicest people you will ever meet.

I just sold my 4 unit apartment building in North Center and Kathleen Malone was my agent. When I called Kathleen on a Friday to see if she would list my building she was on vacation, but told that when she got home on Monday she would drive by my building and get me some comps. I had a 15 page list of comps on Monday night. Now that is some great customer service. She and I then met to discuss an asking price. We came to an agreement and we sold the building very quickly and for within $10,000 of our asking price. She negotiated for us to get that for us. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and so easy to work with. She handled everything with my tenants so I did not have to. I can’t say enough about how happy I am with my experience with Kathleen. She was spectacular.

Mary Beth was nothing short of incredible. I purchased my property while living overseas and she streamlined the process for me in every possible way going over and above any reasonable professional duties. I cannot recommend Mary Beth or her firm any more highly.

We just finished our fourth transaction with Kathleen and team. I’ve not yet written a review, and there are many reasons we keep coming back. Kathleen, along with everyone who works with her, is professional, responsive, and trustworthy. Because of Kathleen’s experience, guidance, straightforward advice and negotiating skills, we were recently able to sell our condo in the City very quickly and for more than anticipated, and to purchase a home in the suburbs for a great price in a great location and in a bidding war. I would not trust anyone else with our real estate transactions.

Kathleen was an absolute pleasure to work with in the purchase of my first home. She truly listened to my wants and needs and was extremely knowledgeable about the market and listings in my target area. She was extremely attentive and quick to respond to all correspondence and the final negotiation was very smooth for all parties involved. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends buying in the Chicagoland area.

Wish I could give Kathleen 6 stars!! She was amazing on both sides of our move. She went above and beyond to walk us through and be there for every step of buying our home and selling our condo. She also gave us really good advice for getting our condo ready to sell and I personally credit her wisdom and hard work for our sale – we were under contract 24 hrs after we listed and got an offer above list. Not only that, she personally helped us deal with issues that came up during attorney review. If you want a hard working, honest, and knowledgeable realtor who is not pushy, Kathleen is the best.

Jackie was everything that my wife and I could have wanted from a real estate agent. She was extremely knowledgeable and helped us search for homes in multiple neighborhoods in Chicago. Also, Jackie was very responsive and always there to take us on visits to multiple homes every weekend. Once we found homes that we liked, Jackie did a great job of helping us determine the value of the homes. I was most impressed by how Jackie never pressured us to purchase a home – she did not hesitate to let us know if she thought that an asking price was too high. Jackie was very helpful during the closing process. There was a lot of back-and-forth between the parties during the closing process, but Jackie was always there to support us and again never pressured us into buying the home. Everything ultimately worked out, and we love our new home. We are so grateful for Jackie’s help and will definitely work with Jackie again when we are ready to move in the future!

With our growing family, it was time to upgrade in size. Kathleen and Mary Beth helped us quickly sell our two bedroom condo in the loop and assisted in closing on our dream house in Old Irving Park. They made the experience very personal while always remaining professional. They were very respectful of the time and efforts we spent rehabbing our condo and worked hard to get us a great price,(highest on record for a 2 BR in the building). We were very impressed with Kathleen and Mary Beth and highly recommend them for your real estate needs.

Couldn’t have had a better team ! Both are extremely professional, responsive, personable and knowledgeable. They saw our condo, made suggestions on how it could show well, priced it perfectly, and it sold in two weeks ! Their suggestions/advice from start to finish was spot on. The buyers liked them as much as we do – that’s a testimonial.

Extremely helpful during the entire process, and got my house sold quick for a good price. Would recommend them to anyone looking to move in the Chicago land area.

Are you in search of “the best real estate agent in Chicago”? Kathleen & Mary Beth Malone are a dynamic powerhouse of resources and information. We approached Chicago with very little information (this was a company relocation) and Mary Beth immediately put us at ease. Extremely knowledgeable, helpful, responsive, considerate, available at a moments notice. Mary Beth quickly helped us to hone our search to a “fit”, tailor made for us. We quickly made an offer and closed the deal! This team is the virtual gold standard for what real estate agents should be like. Don’t hesitate, give them a call and see if they are a fit for you.

Meg is an incredible agent and we can’t recommend her highly enough! She’s absolutely fantastic and we never would have found our dream home without her. She’s super knowledgable and was always immediately responsive to all of our questions. Meg’s the best!

This is the second property Kathleen Malone has sold for us. She was/is incredibly knowledgeable, sophisticated, capable and most importantly psychologically savvy. She deals with her clients, potential buyers and fellow brokers with both warmth and firmness when necessary. I(we) can not praise and recommend her any more! She and her staff are simply outstanding!

I worked with Mary Beth and Kathleen on an apartment listing in the Gold Coast. The apartment was dated and needed help to get to its full potential. Mary Beth and Kathleen completed a market analysis and laid out my options: selling as-is or renovating and getting the best possible return on my investment. With their suggestions and guidance I completed the work on a full wall-to-wall renovation with excellent results. They staged the space beautifully and the unit sold sooner than I expected at close to the record selling price in the building! They are knowledgeable, straightforward, professional and kind. I wouldn’t trust my business with anyone else.

Mary Beth and Kathleen are an outstanding duo! Mary Beth listed and sold our home and was such a help every step of the way. She gave us some great tips for staging, helped us determine a pricing strategy and got the marketing pieces pulled together in just a few days. The house was under contract in two days with multiple offers. Wow! You can’t ask for more than that! Mary Beth then worked with us on purchasing a six-unit investment property. It was a total pleasure working with her and Kathleen. I can’t recommend them enough.

I worked with Kathleen Malone and Mary Beth Malone on the sale of our condo and the purchase of a new one. They are the best! They are very professional, accessible, knowledgeable and a joy to work with. They met all of our needs and ore with a responsive and friendly attitude. We sold quickly and bought our new condo with the help of their expertise. I highly recommend them.

As experienced buyers and sellers of real estate, we were knowledgeable about what to look for in listing agents. Kathleen and Mary Beth were among the best we have ever worked with. They are great listeners, effective advocates, and have a fine eye to detail. We were on a fairly short time table for selling our home and they gave us benchmarks along the way to help us gauge where we needed to be and when. While selling is always stressful, they were able to help us keep the edge off as the weeks progressed.

We have bought, sold and searched for numerous properties over the years…in LI/NY, NYC, Northern suburbs of Chicago, City of Chicago, Maryland and Florida, so we have dealt with many many real estate agents…and over ALL these years and ALL these Real Estate professionals, we can think of only one other (in NYC) that operates with the excellence, knowledge, professionalism, and overall outstanding character…. In our opinion, Kathleen is ONE of the VERY BEST! We are thrilled and very comfortable to have Kathleen represent us and our homes.

“I recently worked with Kathleen on my sale and purchase and had an excellent experience. She sold my condo in less than 60 days time for a record price (for both the building and neighborhood) and then within a day was able to coordinate showings and execute a smooth negotiation on my purchase to accommodate a quick closing. Kathleen was extremely knowledgeable about the inventory in the Loop & Gold Coast which led to a successful negotiation on both the sale and purchase; her market expertise and helpful referrals were an asset from start to finish. Throughout both transactions, Kathleen went above and beyond the level of typical brokerage service and was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in Chicago and look forward to working with her again in the future.”
