"Anne was amazing! She worked very closely with us and made sure we got the property we wanted for the price we wanted. Her knowledge throughout the process was second to none. It made the whole process, which could have been tedious, much more pleasant. Anne is a true professional!"

"Anne and her team are very thorough and represent your home in the best way possible to help you sell your home for a good price.

We sold our home in a tough market and Anne and her team were able to get us multiple offers and we sold for a good price.

They go the extra mile from taking professional photos to helping you make adjustments to help market your home."

"Anne was just what was needed to sell two homes for us. Her honesty on what was needed and knowledge on what worked sold one house in one day, and the other within a month after she took over. I highly recommend her."

"When presented with a relocation for work, Sue is your girl, your outlet and the most professional and personable person to have sell your house. She has the experience of moving very quickly and understands how dramatic it is for EVERY family member and what your family needs. She is always reachable and puts herself in your shoes. She gives you great feedback to enhances your homes features. She has amazing photographer and with her help we had over 40 showings in 14 days. We were presented with multiple offers; she is the best to walk and talk you through all the options. She was so warm, considerate of our family, and offered to help in any way possible. I interviewed 3 realtors and I recommend her to everyone possible. I'm in sales and she understand how to build a relationship, follow up when needed, and builds trust and confidence along the way. If I every move back to the area, she will be the one to help me buy my that house."

"Sue Stalzer has helped us buy two homes and sell one, so our experience with her is deep. And what an experience! The qualities that Sue demonstrates that make her such a successful and powerful professional are her lively personality; thorough knowledge of this region and the intricacies of the real estate business and law; extreme attention to detail (she just doesn't forget stuff!); and her indefatigable work ethic. I simply cannot imagine a better broker! "


by Susan Williams

"Sue Stalzer is a consummate professional - and an incredible asset in the real estate market. My husband and I were looking for a realtor to help relocated our growing family to St. Charles / Geneva from the city and Sue went so far above and beyond in helping us find our perfect fit. She was unbiased, informative, thoughtful and incredibly hardworking. She worked with our less than convenient schedule, and didn't bat an eyelash when our financial circumstances suddenly turned us from home buyers to renters. She found us our perfect temporary solution until we're able to get back into the home buying market.

I wish the rest of my city friends would move out this way so that I could refer them to Sue!"
