We couldn't have asked for a better experience in buying our new home. Sharon is extremely knowledgeable about real estate itself, as well as the many different neighborhoods in the North Shore. Her knowledge, advice and patience in helping us to find the perfect new home were invaluable and we would not hesitate to work with her again and recommend her to others searching for new homes.


In a very challenging market, we decided to move from the Northwest side to Buffalo Grove and contacted Sharon Kessel via referral for our search. Sharon was outstanding: she met with us on time and showed us homes within our price range and style. Sharon also took the time to help us stage and sell our home in Chicago. She was there every step of the way, from taking pictures for the internet, open houses, and building inspection. Sharon made us both fee we were her number one clients while with us and I would highly recommend her services next time you sell your home. By the way; with Sharon's guidance we sold our home without a price reduction in three weeks!


"Sharon Kessel is one of the hardest working real estate professionals in the business today. Even in a difficult market like we now have. I do not ever hesitate to recommend her to family and friends because I know she will always provide excellent service.. She has the expertise to price a property correctly, stage a home to improve its appearance for a quicker sale and the knowledge to help sellers obtain a satisfactory price for their home. When it comes to helping buyers find a property, she also has the knowledge, experience and patience to guide them effectively in choosing a perfect home!"


My family have used Sharon to buy/sell homes/condos for the last 30 years. If you want your house sold quickly at the "right" price or you are looking to buy in North Shore area: Sharon understands what needs to be done to sell a home or what actions need to be taken to "lock up" a purchase. She is a tireless worker who focuses on your goals and provides outstanding ideas for getting a house ready to sell, staging, marketing, or the proper approach to secure the house at the price you can afford.


Sharon was knowledgeable, professional and helpful every step of the way We would recommend her to everyone.


"Thanks so much for your extraordinary assistance in selling our house. Your staging and persistence in following up on all indications of interest made a huge difference Our family very much appreciates the fact that you got us out from under "two house" stress and let us move forward. When the builder is done in a few weeks, I will give you a call to show you the results. Thanks again and we appreciate all you did for us.


We understand you are Sharon Kessel's manager. We want to express our tremendous respect and appreciation for Sharon. We have been through several real estate transactions in our married life and I don't think we have ever met an agent who is as professional and as kind as Sharon has been. She had truly gone the extra mile for us in so many ways. Not only did Sharon show us different towns to consider, but also took the time to present us with a "road map" of connections associated with each community: telephone numbers for chamber of commerce, newcomer's groups, cultural activities, etc.
Manager response - Thank you so much for your endorsement of Sharon...I couldn't agree more! She is a true professional in every sense of the word, a wonderful role model for others in our industry. I am happy to share in your respect and admiration of her, and I am thrilled to have her in our office and company. I so appreciate you taking the time to recognize her, and I will share your lovely testimonial with her. Thank you again!


We have known Sharon for almost 30 years -- we met her when she represented the Sellers of our first house in Deerfield. We kept in touch through the years and ran into her regularly in the Deerfield community. When a job opportunity required us to move across the country and sell our second Deerfield house after 22 years, we chose Sharon to sell our home. Ours was a beautiful but unique house. Sharon was frank about the challenges we faced in maximizing the house's appeal but laid out a sensible strategy for us. From pricing the house, preparing and staging it for sale, and communicating with potential buyers, Sharon's advice was both honest and accurate even if it wasn't always what we hoped to hear. Once we hired her she worked tirelessly on our behalf. She sold the house quickly at a time of year that wasn't ideal, and at only a small discount to the listing price she recommended. She was highly responsive; we remember peaking to her morning, noon and night. We are grateful for her counsel and recommend her highly.


Sharon is a wonderful real estate agent. She is knowledgeable and really listens to her clients. "We've been working with Sharon over many years. She sold us our first home and is now there guiding us through the journey into the next. Sharon takes the "stress" out of home selling and makes the process a truly enjoyable experience. What sets Sharon apart from the rest is her high level of professionalism to her client. She listens and makes her client's needs a priority, is very attentive and always looks out for her client's best interests. She truly is the client's friend. Sharon is always on top of the real estate market trends and is a great advocate. Than you Sharon for your continuous guidance and for always staying connected. "We will gladly partner with you in the future."


'We were so impressed w/Sharon in 1990 that we hired her again in 1997 to begin yet another house. We are very picky people and Sharon had the patience of a saint with us. She never got irritated or frustrated, just plugged along and passed on information whenever she found it, and may I add that the information was always immediate. She was always willing willing and able to show us a house at any given moment. At last, we found the house of our dreams FINALLY in 2001. My kids love her and so do we. This is the best real estate agent around, bar none!!! We found her through word of mouth with high recommendations from a friend, and boy was she ever right! Thanks for everything, Sharon."


"Sharon is the Greatest Realtor! She helped ready my house for showing. She personally uncluttered it (and my house needed it!) herself. she sold my house at a great price (very close to"asking") to the first person who walked in the door! I LOVE Sharon Kessel!" Happy client!


"We have enjoyed a 17 year relationship with Sharon Kessel. She has been our adviser and agent on two home purchases and one home sale in Lincolnshire, IL. We consider her a friend and a real estate expert who is eminently experienced, a knowledgeable negotiator, appropriately aggressive and, in general, a warm person with whom it is a delight to work."


"We have been friends and neighbors for a good many years and so I have had many oppurtunities to observe you in action and realize why you are a top notch real estate agent. You work for your clients and you care for them as real people who need quality representation.
Our personal experience includes the sale of my King's Cove home which you handled completely while I was in Florida. You had a sale in hand by the time our sales agreement was signed and all the negotiations were handled by telephone or fax.
When I returned to Deerfield you knew I needed a place to live and you already identified the potential alternatives. We spent two days reviewing the prospects, found a property I liked and worked until late evening to finalize an offer. You helped me buy the property at a favorable price and on our terms.
Two years later I relocated to Florida and you prepared a marketing proposal for my condo with an asking price at the very top range that any condo in the community had been offered. Again I was in Florida, while you picked up an polished up my condo for sale. All of the discussions and negotiations or fax. Within 30 days yoou completed a very satisfactory sale at our asking price. My experience tells me you are highly qualified, very able and committed to representing your clients effectively. Fay joins me in extending our very best wishes."


Sharon staged our home to its best advantage. The photos she had professionally done showed our home beautifully. These photos were sent through her vast referral network, via postcards, pamphlets and brochures. She continually updated us with information regarding housing markets in our area. Her intelligence and insight in this rough housing market had us correctly pricing our home. She is a proven leader in Real Estate Sales. Sharon is completely dedicated to her listings and gives each of her listings her sales savvy and dedication.


"Sharon Kessel is one of the hardest working realtors one could ever hope to find. She is always pleasant and willingly undertakes whatever work is required to accomplish her client's goals. She's a trooper and a real find - the first correct choice in a series of decisions that will face each buyer or seller."


"We've been working with Sharon over many years. She sold us our first home Sharon is a wonderful real estate agent. She is knowledgeable and really listens to her clients. She is thorough and persistent in finding the perfect home for her clients, while respecting their budget. The fact that she is do detailed-oriented means she covers all the bases for her clients. Having her represent a client is a very wise choice, no matter what you are looking for. Highly recommended!


Sharon was recommended to us by one of our friends and as a first time home buyer, we could not have asked for a better realtor. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and enthusiastic. She was also able to accommodate our requests at short notice and sometimes late hours. I would highly recommend her.


My mom has been a realtor as long as I can remember. She gives everything she has to her clients and never says no to any request that may arise. Her work ethic and dedication is second to none. I remember many weekends where she would wake up at the crack of dawn, then head out the door for a long day of servicing her clients. She staged our condo in the city, recommended some minor updates, and sold it above asking price in a very tough seller's market within days It sold so quickly that we only had a couple of weeks for her to find us a new home. Through her extensive networking she was able to find us the exact home we were looking for that was not even on the market yet. I highly recommend my mom for all your real estate needs!


Sharon is hardworking, creative energetic, driven and has what it takes to sell. Sharon was always available, eager to listen and did what she needed to do in terms of advertising and communication in order to sell our house. I would highly recommend Sharon Kessel to anyone who wanted to buy or sell a home. You will fall in love with Sharon. She is a lot of fun!"

"After well over an unsuccessful year of having listed my home with another broker, I contracted for the sale of my property with Sharon Kessel. She immediately and skillfully staged the house, generously advertised it, scheduled innumerable open house dates, and in a short period of time attracted a serious buyer. Sharon smoothed the way for an effortless closing, as well as my subsequent purchase of another residence. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Sharon Kessel, a responsible, ethical person, and an experienced real estate broker who knows how to achieve results."
