- Connie helped me buy a home
Connie is a true professional in every sense of the word. She will earn your respect with her tireless effort. She's a good listener who will help you find your next home. She will negotiate aggressively on your behalf and is someone you can trust.
I highly recommend Connie. She has a high aptitude and passion for real estate. Works tirelessly. Detail oriented. Understands that she has your largest financial transaction in the palm of her hand and acts accordingly. Superb support team (photography/internet marketing) and referrals (repairmen and atoorney). Follow the Connie playbook and you will not be disappointed.- Bill S.
Connie is a force of nature; she is acutely aware of market forces, nuanced as well as broad based marketing strategies and the competitive arena. In a depressed competitive market, she sold our house within 3 months! Highly recommend her services to neophyte buyers/sellers as well as seasoned veterans such as ourselves- Leslie B.
Connie took the time to understand us and found us the perfect match. She made us feel comfortable and the entire process was smooth and easy. We have already recommended connie to friends and family. Connie and her team are the best!- Maria T. Northbrook, IL
Wow! Connie moved a mountain for me: As estate executor, I needed to sell a difficult property. We priced realistically (did my own comps too), but not aggressively. She negotiated a miracle deal, under contract within ONE DAY of listing! CASH sale, a bit OVER asking price, closed seamlessly in four weeks. Oh, and did I say she's smart, incredibly efficient, completely calm, and has a great sense of humor, too?- Chris K, Glenview, IL
Connie provided the experience and knowledge of the current market status, discussed best strategies for listing and energy to accomplish the close. She was always available day or night via phone or text.- Thomas R.
We made the best decision to choose Connie to advise us, market and sell our home. She is a pro who knows the housing market and works diligently, always available to us and was our "rock" through the entire process. She makes it look easy (and we know it's not!) Connie is, above all, an honest, kind and compassionate person.- Judi R. Northbrook, IL
Connie knows everything, and will lead you to find your perfect home. She helped us narrow down the perfect suburb, then neighborhood, then house! She is incredibly responsive and quick, and will make finding your home a top priority.- Jay B.
Best realtor I have ever worked with, period. Prompt, smart, affable, available, and trustworthy. Incredibly capable, thoughtful, and wonderful person to work with. Spent lots of time with us, and really acted as our advocate in purchasing a home. Really allowed us to benefit from her experience and knowledge. Will definitely go back to her again and will recommend her highly to any one without any hesitation.- David & Natalie B. Glenview, IL
Connie was very professional and takes care of things immediately. She is also honest and realistic with her clients. Connie creates a marketing plan specific to your home to help you sell it faster.- Mark F. Glenview, IL
Connie was incredible at narrowing properties down for us. As soon as she knew what we were looking for, she was a master at sorting out locations, size, color, function, and schools. We were looking for a new home from across the USA, and she was amazing to work with. Super responsive to emails and calls, and always on top of it. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for the perfect place to call home.- Monika R. Glenview, IL
We are impressed by Connie's professional, passion and hard work. She is very helpful and helps us find the house we like! We are appreciated! Thank you Connie, from me and my husband!- Li J. Glenview, IL
Connie brings in all the experience and knowledge you need for the home-buying process. She is always on top of things and has the market under her full vision. Connie's strategic approach and insightful advices can make the home-buying process such a smooth and satisfying experience. She is the broker you can really rely on for results you will love!!- Ahmed M.
Connie checks all the boxes that you are looking for in a realtor. She knows how to sell your house and will commit all resources at her disposal in marketing your property. Our house sold in 1 week!- Annette K. Northbrook, IL
Connie worked patiently with us for 6 months while we went literally all over the map on locations, home types, sizes, you name it. She is always available, gives direct advice and made us feel like we had her sole attention. We never had to wait more than 10-15 minutes to hear back from her at most.- Sanjaya S.
Connie is simply the best of the best. If you want to buy or sell a home with a true professional who gets the job done and is truly looking out for your best interest, please call her! She is extremely knowledgeable about the Chicago and North Shore markets, super responsive, and goes above and beyond to do what is needed to buy or sell your home in a way that works for you. She is an expert negotiator; we call her the real estate ninja. You will never regret reaching out to her!!!- Meredith W.
I was on a tight schedule and needed to move the property quickly realtor...highly recommend....makes the entire process seamless and pain-free plus sold my place in 6 days!- Andrew C.
This is second time Connie helped us with a property listing. Similar to our previous experience, Connie is very diligent, transparent, knowledgable, resourceful and responsive. We feel very grateful for the support Connie provided to us through this journey which can be emotional sometime. She and her team made it look easy.- Dan H.
Connie is a super agent! We, as a first time home buyers, always appreciated and relied on her sound, honest and professional advice and feedback. Her expertise made the first time home buying process stress free.- Shringi M. Glenview, IL
We highly recommend Connie, this was our 2nd transaction with her and she gets things done! She is professional, she is honest, she knows the market and she works hard for her clients. Best agent to work with by far!- Daniela C.
There are some people who do more than sell. They are more than realtors. They CARE, what they sell you, and CARE that you are HAPPY with that purchase. You feel their sincerity, passion for what they do, and true knowledge of the industry they are in. Connie Dornan, is one such person. We cannot speak more highly of her work ethic, her selflessness in being there for us, and mostly her concerns that we were truly HAPPY with the purchase of our home. In an industry of many, she stands alone, in our our eyes. THANK YOU CONNIE!- Sandra C.
Connie was very knowledgeable and helpful during my whole buying process. She is truly a professional in the industry and I recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell property.- Erwin U. Northbrook, IL
From our very first phone conversation, I not only had chosen a realtor but I had also gained a friend. We talked for approximately 20 minutes and after much laughter and storytelling, I felt comfortable enough to call her my friend. That was my introduction to Connie Dornan. She was one of the best gifts that we have ever received. My husband and I had decided to move out of the family home and downsize to a smaller house and it was quite the emotional roller coaster. From the beginning to the end, Connie was truly the best person to take along on the ride. She knew when to be firm and she knew when we needed that gentle push to guide us in the right direction. Her honesty was greatly appreciated and her real estate knowledge was truly respected by us. During what was such an overwhelming and emotional time in our lives, she definitely was the glue that kept everything together! She works with an impressive group of professionals who work together to market your house in the most favorable light. The photographer took amazing pictures of our home and the 3-D tour camera man was exceptional. The interior decorator chose a beautiful paint palette for the interior of our house and she did a wonderful job staging our home. With Connie and her team behind us, we were able to sell our house in just five weeks!! We couldn't have done it without her. She is the best person to have on your side whether you are buying or selling. Connie is one of the most knowledgeable, hardworking, dedicated and loyal person whom I have ever met. Her work ethic is incredible and she definitely will have your best interest at heart. We highly recommend Connie. A sincere thank you for everything!!- Karen C. Glenview, IL
STOP right here- no need to look any further. Whether buying or selling a home, Connie is the one you want in your corner. I had the pleasure of her both selling and buying a home this year---as it happened it all came together in the same week. But it started many months ago as Connie cares for her clients and walks the journey with you from start to end. The attention to detail, the knowledge of the marketplace and seemingly every suburb, her expertise in marketing and negotiating - every area she has covered. That and her customer service is exemplary - 5 star ----She directly attends to all questions and responds the same day to emails, and phone calls. And through it all she is looking out for your best interest. As many have said, she may start as your agent but don't be surprised if she ends up as your friend. Thanks Connie for all that you do.- Jenny M.
Connie was fantastic to work with. She walked us around and helped us understand all resale considerations of homes and approximate costs for any issues we encountered. Working with Connie made a tough process much easier.- Ian P.
Connie is a rare find. Her work ethic is incredible and achieved by few. Connie sincerely cares about you and will help in every way from beginning to end. She enjoys her job and it shows. Connie sold my house and found my new home and she was with me every step of the way. I just can't put into words how knowledgeable she is or how quickly she responds to all contacts you make with her, or how fantastic she is at negotiating. Please, give her a call.- George N.
Incredibly knowledgeable; very easy to work with; gets things done quickly; very responsive to calls/ issues; knew how to quickly get over "bumps" when came up- Ronald A. Northbrook, IL
Connie was great to deal with from start to finish. She was capable and professional in marketing our home and fun to work with. Our home sold in 5 days and we got our asking price. I would highly recommend Connie to anyone who is buying or selling a home.- William T. Glenview, IL
Connie was very straight forward and on point with all aspects of the sale. We put our complete trust in her to get our house sold quickly and at the right price and we were not disappointed.- Dragan R, Northbrook, IL
Connie was the best realtor that we have ever had! She focused specifically on our needs and targeted houses with our needs in mind. She found us the perfect house and guided us through the process of obtaining this house . Connie was both very professional and courteous. She always immediately responded to our questions either by email or phone. It took us 8 months to find our house and Connie treated us throughout this whole process with respect and never seemed to tire of the search for us. I would highly recommend Connie to anyone!- Daniel S. Glenview, IL
Connie is a real pro! When you work with Connie, you deal with her directly. She is extremely knowledgable about the market and uses promotional strategies that are differentiated from other realtors. She sold our home quickly and for the right price.- Suzanne P.
Connie was absolutely fabulous!!! She really knows how to get the job done. She was such a pleasure to work with, always available when I called and always willing to go out of her way to help. She was very knowledgeable and resourceful. Connie was so aggressive that our condo was practically sold before the first showing!! I could not have asked for a better experience. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home.- Ashton S. Glenview, IL
My girlfriend and I just recently moved from TX to IL for a work transfer that I had come up. Upon making plans to uproot my life in TX, I knew it was time I purchase a home for us instead of continuing the renting game. While looking at places in the Chicago-land area on Zillow, I found a house that caught my interest and it has Connie listed as one of the agents. Being new to the whole house buying process, I didn't really know where to begin at all so I thought a good place to start would be to contact one of those agents to see what I could find out. After reading all of their reviews, Connie seemed to get the most positive reviews of the ones left on there. I messaged Connie and pretty quickly (within like 30 minutes and it was fairly late at night) got response from her. We emailed back and forth while I explained who I was and what my situation was, and in no time she was sending me several options daily. I scheduled a visit to the area and she set me up with several places to view on short notice. Her partner, Nancy, was also very helpful in showing me places that fit our needs while making very valuable suggestions along the way.- Adam K.
Connie is the best agent I have ever had! Relocating to IL from far away, we primarily worked with Connie remotely and relied on her heavily to educate us on the Northshore market and serve as our on the ground representative when houses in our desired locations popped up. She knew what we wanted and made sure that we got it. Connie has such a warm heart and I was able to rely on her as if she was one of my family members. She is honest and responsive - no question or detail is too small for her and she always responds quickly. Additionally, she knows that the buying process is an emotional process and she was a comforting presence the entire time. Knowing that I could trust her and that she will always do what is best for my family, made the buying process much easier. I would not be surprised if buyers from the other side of the earth, such as China, are flocking to work with her. If you are not a local and looking to relocate, work with Connie! She really delivered on our dream home.- Zhang F.
Everything good you hear about Connie is true. Connie Dornan is not just a great realtor, she is also a great friend and connection. It was only by mistake that my wife and I stumbled upon Connie on Zillow. We were interviewing realtors, and she was quick to respond and eager to begin the home search. Connie likes to connect with her clients on a deeper level to truly understand their wants and needs. She is able to look beyond the surface with her extensive professional experience. She knows everything to look for, and all the great neighborhoods with excellent schools. It was winter when we first started the home search and the market was limited. Connie was so patient with us as we searched for our home. I cant even tell you how many homes we looked at. Connie is swift to answer emails and calls, and will always return them promptly if she is unavailable. Ive never seen someone so dedicated to their clients before. Once the market finally picked up in spring, we found a home that was everything we were looking for in a terrific neighborhood. Of course we got into a multiple offer situation However, we had Connie on our side, and with her negotiating skills we were able to get the home we wanted within our budget! Connie made what was a rather frustrating process due to market inventory into a very pleasant one. She really cares about people, and making sure they are happy with their home purchase for years to come. I would highly recommend Connie to everyone because she will be there with you throughout every step of the process, and will continue to be there for you afterward. I also must thank her associate, Nancy McKew, for her assistance with the process as well. I could go on and write a book on how happy we are with the purchase and with our experience with Connie, but I will end it with this; Thank you, Connie, from me and my wife for all you do!- Nicholas B.
Connie helped me sell my condo. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market in the north suburbs. Not only is she professional and highly competent, she is genuine and trustworthy. She is always very responsive. She is a true professional and I would HIGHLY recommend working with her!- Michelle T.
Connie is outstanding! As first time home buyers we needed more hand holding than usual, and Connie was patient with us throughout the search, offer and closing process (and post-sale). She gave us as much time as we needed to make decisions, and truly wanted us to find the right home. Connie helped us to negotiate through a multiple offer situation, and still get a good deal despite dealing with a difficult seller. Thanks Connie!- Todd S. Northbrook, IL
If you want a thorough evaluation fro top to bottom and the ins and outs of what your looking for in a home, Connie is the person for you. The details and information that you need can be found by talking to Connie. I felt very comfortable and relaxed about my purchase. The process of home buying, which can be quite haphazard, and tumultuous, was made smooth by her expertise and coordination with the sellers. Even the loan, changes necessary before, during and after the sale was coordinated by Connie without my asking. She is very proactive, attentive and really on top of the whole real estate, buying, selling and educating concepts. I recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great experience in real estate whether you're selling or buying.- Yim H. Glenview, IL
Connie helped us sell our townhome and purchase a home in Glenview. She is extremely knowledgeable about the north shore market, neighborhoods and home values. Not only is she professional and highly competent, she is genuine and trustworthy. She is always super responsive and goes above and beyond to make you feel like you are her #1 priority. She is a true professional and we would HIGHLY recommend working with her!!- Michael C. Glenview, IL
Connie Dornan is one of the most talented, determined, and enthusiastic individuals I have ever met. She helped me purchase my first condo and I feel like I could not have found a better realtor. I felt like I was her only client as she guided me through the process. Connie always took the time to listen to what I wanted and then anticipated places I would like. She was cognizant of time constraints I had and always managed to work with me and my hectic schedule. Her insightfulness on various aspects, many of which I would never have even thought about, made her an expert on everything we encountered. You can tell that this is what Connie was meant to do and her energy level only made me enjoy working with her that much more. I had MANY snags after an offer was made and she conquered them all with relative ease and kept me sane as we worked on bizarre issues that were of no fault of her own. I would not have found and closed on my dream place if it were not for her and her expertise. I had an idea in my head of what realtors were like and Connie changed all of that. She is an inspiration and anyone would be a fool to not use her for any of their home needs. The only thing that I am disappointed about is that I will not be able to work with her again until I need to sell my place! Connie Dornan cannot be beat and I encourage anyone to give her a call to start the best realtor experience one could ever want.- John O.
