George and Katrina de los Reyes
Katrina and George help me sell my place and purchase a new one. They were both very knowledgeable and helped me feel comfortable through the process. The potentially stressful times were enjoyable and exciting thanks to them. They provided trust, quick response time, effective behind the scenes work while always keeping me updated, and results that couldn't have played out any better. I will highly recommend them to friends and family looking to sell or buy. - Brian, 2016
"It's easy for us to endorse Katrina and George because of their extraordinary and authentic care for their clients. I'm sure that you have experienced being "sold" real estate. Our experience with George and Katrina was nothing like this. It began with a very thoughtful and personal discussion of our history, preferences, and needs. It developed into a partnership of exploration and discovery. It culminated in a very satisfying agreement on a property that cleanly matched our aspiration. Along the way Katrina acted as a patient sounding board and advisor. We joked that at times she also became a marriage counselor. We could not have been more pleased with the professionalism and care we received from Katrina and George and highly recommend them to others!" - Fred and Susie H., 2015
"Katrina and George helped us looking for an apartment to rent years ago. This year, they helped us find the home we hope our kids grow up in. They are by far one of the sweetest teams I've ever met but more than that they're experienced, knowledgeable and ethical. Katrina not only did what most realtors do - show us around houses - she did more. She was always available as we were house hunting from 1200 miles away, she would coordinate her schedule around my trips to the Chicago area, and she always had insights on the neighborhoods, schools and other aspects of the community that you couldn't find easily anywhere else. When we did find the home we wanted, she was there to make sure we got the fairest deal. And even when we thought closing would never come because of a difficult seller, she kept us going and kept the process moving coordinating our lawyer, our inspects and other contractors for us - again from 1200 miles away. She was like my personal AngiesList. I would recommend this team to absolutely anyone and when we someday sell, and if we ever buy again, I hope they'll be there to do it with us." - Kristian and Courtney A., 2014
"George and Katrina were both an amazing help during the short sale of our condo. I think their strong suit is their honesty and their communication. We never once had to chase after them for info--they always sent us regular, detailed updates ... amazing! I always recommend them to all of my friends: They made a grueling experience much, much easier and were with us every step of the way." - Kerri K. and Martin B., 2012
Smart Selling and Best Buy
"George & Katrina helped us both buy a new condo, as well as sell our old one last year (2013). We were quite nervous about selling our condo in Evanston's crowded condo market, especially during the tail end of the season (Fall). It was our first time selling, but thanks to their advice and help (including minor work on the unit, and brand new appliances), we landed an offer within one week of listing, very close to our asking price!
They were an even greater help during the buying process. Both were quite patient and thorough with us in looking at a good number of homes, including single-family homes, town houses, and condos -- over the hot market in Spring 2013. They helped us put together 3 offers; though we lost the first 2 to higher bids, they encouraged us to soldier on with our search. With their help, we landed in a lovely & spacious condo in a top-notch Evanston location!"
We'd highly recommend George & Katrina to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!" - Karl and Leah S., 2013
"We've contracted with George and Katrina twice--once to sell our condo, and then a year later again to buy our home. We could not recommend them more highly.
We originally tried to sell with a different agent, and after over a year with no offers, we decided to go with someone new. We immediately felt like we were in better hands with George and Katrina. In less than two weeks with them, we had m...ore showings than we'd had in the past four months with our other agent, and in just over a month we were under contract. It was a difficult sale with financing on the buyer's end, but George and Katrina made sure they were regularly in contact with the seller's agent, mortgage broker, and lawyer, and they kept us updated every step of the way.
When we decided to buy a year later, we didn't even consider going with any other real estate agents. They helped us navigate our options, and kept us updated with anything fitting within bus range of our daughter's school. They helped us negotiate a great deal on our home, and put us in touch with a top-notch inspector and lawyer.
All in all, we'd highly recommend George and Katrina to anyone looking to buy or sell. They know their stuff, they know their neighborhoods, and they know what a stressful experience selling and buying can be, and their optimistic laid-back attitudes are just what's needed in such cases." - Matt and Bente K., 2013
Making it Happen
"Being a new mom with an hour commute to work, I had VERY little time to waste so working with George and Katrina was a dream! They totally get it; they understood very clearly our priorities, our preferences, lifestyle, and budget and they made it work! We love our new home and they helped us make it happen! Thanks George and Katrina." - Grace and David K., 2013
"Thinking of selling in 2014? Do it! And do it with George and Katrina! It was my first time selling property and my experience was 5 stars! Now I know why this dynamic couple are at the top! I received multiple offers and had my condo under contract in 5 days! I never thought I would've sold in under a week!! Thanks George and Katrina!!" - Jason P., 2014
"George and Katrina are a 5 star team. They both care about their clients and put the clients' interest above their commission. They certainly are a pleasure to work with." - Mike P., 2014
"Thank you again for all you did for us in helping to sell our home. I want to share some of the positive experiences we had working with you and George. First of all, you were informative, patient and flexible with our first time sellers’ fears and concerns. You definitely made it as painless as possible. Secondly, we were stunned at the speed that the house sold. Thirdly, both you and George were efficient, professional, and lovely to work with. You can certainly use us as a reference." - Amy and Glenn G., 2014
"Katrina is awesome! My wife and I have worked with her off and on for the past 3 years. She helped us find a great apartment when we first moved to Chicago from Florida, and then just this past December she helped us find our new condo. Katrina has always been very friendly and extremely easy to work with. She does an excellent job of figuring out needs and wants and then finding places that fit into what you're looking for. She definitely made the experience a lot less stressful than it probably could have been. My wife and I could not be happier with our new condo and it has so much to do with Katrina and all the hard work she put in to finding it. I highly recommend working with Katrina and look forward to working with her in any future real estate needs. Thanks again Katrina, you're awesome!" – Jonathan and Jessica S., 2015
Sell and Buy with One Team
"Many thanks to George & Katrina for helping us with our home purchase and condo sale in 2014! Kate and I have been thrilled to work with realtors who are patient, helpful, and have earned our utmost trust. And our experience couldn't have ended any better as we love our new home and neighborhood. What drew us to George and Katrina was their experience and knowledge across many regions of Chicagoland. They had inside knowledge of our city neighborhood and countless western suburbs that interested us. This enabled us to sell and buy with the same realtor - a great convenience. If you're in the market for any kind of real estate transaction, I highly recommend working with them. Thank you!" – Whitney and Kate B., 2015
