Hayley Westhoff's Reviews & Ratings

Hayley Westhoff

    • We met Hayley at an open house where she was representing the sellers. Both my husband and I were immediately impressed with her demeanor, professionalism, and how knowledgeable she was about the property. We had been to numerous other open houses where agents couldn't get their facts straight even after going through the MLS sheet. We had not appointed an agent yet and could see how she would be a great fit with what we were looking for in an agent.Once back home, I went through Yelp, Zillow, and other property sites to see if others shared our first impression of her. And there it was - consistent five-star ratings and all-around glowing reviews. We set up an appointment at her office to kick-off our first-time home-buying journey.And what a challenging ride it was: Starting with a totally disengaged seller's agent to the property not appraising initially we ran into every possible buying-related roadblock. However, Hayley was there with us every step of this crazy journey surpassing all our expectations. She was such a calming influence promptly addressing every question or concern from us. I cannot keep count of the number of times Hayley had to play counselor to help us keep our sanity intact during this process (after-hours too given both of our crazy work schedules). We used her recommended team of professionals - from attorney to bank agent and they were all exceptional.Another thing that Hayley had me in awe of was her attention to detail. She educated us throughout this process, pointing out things that no detailed guide or checklist could provide. It was this attention to detail that also helped us when the property did not appraise at the initial-offer price and she was able to uncover discrepancies with the reported square footage. Hayley got into total investigator mode, advised us not to pay the remaining earnest money amount and made sure that we had the upper hand in all the negotiations. She also made sure that we did not make an emotional decision since I was so invested in the property.Hayley has some of the fiercest negotiation skills I have ever seen (doing justice to every one of her negotiation credentials). She played it cool in the toughest situations with the sellers playing extreme hardball and helped us get an insanely good deal for the Lincoln Park area!!Throughout this process, it was so clear that she cared about our interests and this was not a mere transaction. In Hayley, we have found a friend and real estate agent for the long-haul. We have been recommending Hayley to all our friends and colleagues, we firmly believe that they will be in the BEST HANDS in town.

      - Jason A on yelp.com
    • Hayley was unbelievable to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of a realtor. Hayley found our new home after 1 day and sold our current home in a week where we received multiple offers above list price.No one works harder than Hayley and her Knowledge of the market was accurate and realistic. She truly cares about her clients and makes decisions and provides guidance based on the clients best interests.You will not go wrong with Hayley - she is a great realtor

    • We were looking for a new construction home in Chicago and just not finding what we wanted. Haley went out of her way to find us a home that wasn't even listed yet. The home was about 75% completed and the minute we walked in, we could tell that the quality far exceeded any other home we had looked at. The builder was asking more than we could afford, but Haley did an excellent job of showing him comps and bringing the price down to one that worked for us. She has been very easy to reach and communicate with and has been with us all the way through closing. Haley helped us find our dream home!

      - Marsha K on yelp.com
    • Hayley was outstanding from every perspective. She was responsive and enthusiastic about our sale - although we knew she was working with other properties she made us feel as if we were her only client. Her knowledge of the market was accurate and her guidance through the sale process was outstanding. Most importantly, she took our needs - as few showings as possible - into account for her sale strategy. And it worked - our condo sold over asking price after only three days on the market - we received multiple offers after just one weekend of open houses with no additional showings. Bottom line: I would strongly recommend Hayley for your real estate transaction.

      - Mike S on yelp.com
    • My husband and I live in Pittsburgh and were purchasing our first home in Chicago. We chose to work with Hayley after a great experience/first-impression seeing her at an open house selling a different property. She is approachable, warm, and clearly has expertise about the city. She got us the property we wanted in a hot market with multiple buyers looking at the same property. She's incredibly easy to reach at all times (days, nights, or weekends and even on vacation!). Hayley made the entire home buying experience easier for us and my husband and I recommend her without reservation!

    • Hayley is an absolutely amazing realtor and person!We were at our wits end with another realtor. Our beautiful home in a great part of the city was not selling at all and we were flummoxed. Our home had been on the market for 7 months! Although we had talked with our realtor and expressed dismay, nothing was happening.As you can imagine having a house on the market for any time, let alone 7 months while having a toddler at home is a nightmare!To make a long story short, I met Hayley not as a realtor but in another capacity. She saw our home and noticed it was on the market and we started chatting. I told her how confused I was that we'd had no offers when everyone said how nice our place was. She saw that it didn't make sense either.Within a week Hayley met with my husband and I and told us about the market, explained what she would do in regards to our home, etc. It was obvious she was extremely knowledgeable about the Chicago market and all its facets.We hired Hayley and she helped immensely with every part of the process. She came over and told me anything I needed to fix, put away or redecorate a certain way. She did a lot of work just to prepare and stage our home and this is right after she had a newborn!We had her list our house and within 3 days we had multiple offers over what we had listed at!!! We didn't need to show the place anymore which was wonderful.A few weeks before closing, our buyers had a problem wherein one party lost their job. Devastatingly, they would not be able to qualify. That very afternoon Hayley had reached out to other people who had offered and we had a new contract! We closed on our house successfully and easily a few weeks ago. If you are looking for a realtor look no further than Hayley. I can't express how amazing she is and how she goes the extra mile 100% to make your sale happen. We feel so lucky to have found her and would use her again in a heartbeat. You can trust her implicitly with your real estate needs. She is super nice to boot!

    • Hayley helped us sell our condo in Lincoln Park, and we were blown away by the results and how easy and smooth the whole process was. First and foremost, she sold our place for the full asking price within a week, which set a record for the highest sale in our building and was significantly higher than all the comps. We could not believe it! In the year leading up to our sale, Hayley played an active role in helping us do do projects around the home that would help us sell for more. She knew exactly what buyers wold pay more for and what projects wouldn't give a return. All of her advice and expertise paid off! She was also very professional, available to communicate any day and time, and was all around a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home, you will be in great hands with Hayley!"

      - A. M. on yelp.com
    • Hayley is a wonderful realtor and a beautiful person! She helped us to buy our first home. She was very helpful, was giving nice advices, was very patient and she knows the real estate market well.She was very responsive to all our questions no matter by email or phone. Once we've been out of the country, but we've been interested in one property and she made a video for us of her visit.For us it was crucial to have a good and professional person working with us because we are foreigners and are not familiar with home buying process in the US.Now that we've found our perfect home, we are really thankful for her excellent job and highly recommend her to anyone.

    • Hayley came highly recommended to me by a friend and I was so grateful. Hayley was so accessible and communication was a breeze. I contacted her initially while she was on a family vacation (I didn't know that) but she responded quickly and begun pulling comps on her flight back! For our initial meeting to discuss the sale of our home, she was so well prepared and versed with our home. She already had a smart price and who are target buyers would be. We really were initially going to test the water with our home to see what the feedback was and Hayley was totally fine with taking us on. She gave us great tips on how to declutter and stage. Fast forward to three days later when we found our dream home and needed to sell our house asap. She got photographers and layout engineers out the next day and the home on the mls in two days! She was respectful of the fact we didn't want to have open houses or a ton of showings during bedtime as we have three kids under three. She scheduled showings clumped together so we weren't displaced for long and got our house sold for 51k over ask in one day. I would highly recommend her and her north shore partner Pam MacPherson.

      - Allison M on yelp.com
    • Hayley is great on many levels. She was my realtor for both the sale of my condo and purchase of a new home. She brought so many people to my condo's open house that my neighbors called to find out what was happening! Pricing, negotiation, and process - Hayley was a great guide through all the challenging aspects of a buy/sell. Plus she is always upbeat and available for any questions. Top notch.

      - Shari C on yelp.com
    • Hayley was wonderful to work with . Fast, efficient, very knowledgeable . My husband and I were very comfortable asking her anything and she helped us find our new home thanks to her in our desired neighborhood. She was always available to talk and answer any questions we had . She is great !!

      - Kim L. on yelp.com
    • Hayley is an excellent real estate agent and someone I will use for all of my future residential needs. She made the process incredibly easy for me including recommending and hiring quality contractors for work prior to the sale. She went over and above on a simple one bedroom sale and I can't say enough about the experience.If you're looking for a true professional who will get the job done with your interests in mind, then do yourself a favor and hire Hayley.

      - David B on yelp.com
    • Hayley is a joy to work with! She's very responsive to emails/texts/phone calls and she knows the real estate market well. She was a true advocate during every stage of my searching for and buying my first condo and made it a truly personal experience. She even offered guidance and references for renovations, and in true character followed up months afterward to see that we had been successful. She is also a wonderful teacher - knowledgeable, patient, and eager to answer questions. Hayley's work ethic is truly inspiring, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her services to any potential buyer. When it comes time to sell, I will be contacting her again. Until then!

      - Claire D on yelp.com
    • Before buying our first condo, I sent automated emails through Zillow to several different agents. For many, I got generic responses and added to their spam email lists (no, I don't want to see all your hot new properties I didn't ask about). For others, I didn't get any kind of response.Hayley, on the other hand, contacted me personally. She was very friendly without being aggressive or pushy. We decided to use her services to find our first condo.Throughout the entire process, Hayley was helpful, friendly, and personable. She is always quick to reply to texts, emails or phone calls. She really understood our needs and worked hard to find a place we'd love. She really shined after we found our perfect place. Hayley set up multiple showings and answered all our questions. We didn't even meet the selling agent until our final walkthrough. When it came time to make an offer, Hayley was a fierce negotiator and got us a great deal! All in all, Hayley was a perfect agent for my wife and I. We never felt pressured nor did we feel like we were ever inconveniencing her.We felt like her only client because she was so helpful.I will definitely recommend Hayley to my friends and will hopefully use her services again someday (in the far future when we're ready to move again).

      - Luke J on yelp.com
    • Hayley was so easy to work with. She was always two steps ahead of me through the listing process, reviewing the steps with me which really lowered the stress factor of dealing with real estate transactions. She gave great advice on pricing and staging, and she sold my condo for only $5K less than the asking price. She definitely was a great choice, and I will use her again for buying and selling my next set of properties.

      - Keely D on yelp.com
    • Hayley was a godsend for us! My wife and I recently purchased a home for the first time, and could not have made it through without Hayley's guidance along the way. Throughout the entire process, Hayley was there to explain every step, provide council, and help us step away from the ledge when it all became stressful (as this process does). She expertly helped us craft an offer that would be accepted in a multiple-offer situation, was accessible at all times, and was always willing to go to bat for us at any twist and turn along the way. We are moving into our dream condo now, and couldn't be luckier to have worked with Hayley on our first ever home purchase. We will definitely be using her for any future sales/purchases as well. Can't recommend her highly enough!

      - Nick B on yelp.com
    • Hayley reached out to me when I had questions several months prior to listing our 2bd/2bath Lakeview condo on the market. Without knowing we would utilize her services in the future she agreed to meet with us and provide us with information on what we could do to maximize the sale of our home. We did end up listing with her and we had a contract over asking price within 24 hours of going to market. Hayley is a go-getter, she is competitive and professional, she was readily available to us and our unending list of questions. She exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend her to anyone in the market looking to buy or sell a home.

      - Aubri B on yelp.com
    • Hayley was seriously a godsend and I would recommend her a million times over! This was not our first time purchasing a home, and she was definitely not the first realtor we've worked with. However, she topped them all. We came in to this thinking we would wait about 6 months before actually purchasing a home, but actually ended up finding one we loved with in 2 weeks. But, the home we lived in was not even listed yet- it also was not in the greatest area. Regardless, in order to get this new home, we had to sell our home almost immediately. Other homes on our exact same block had been on the market for 8 months all the way up to 2 years!! Needless to say, we weren't very confident. But, Hayley helped us stage our home and prep it for a sale. She also had professional photographers come and take listing photos. She listed and sold our home (with multiple offers) within a week!!! Then that offer fell through and she found another buyer 3 days later! It was insane. Because of that we were able to purchase the new home on the same day we sold our other home. There was a lot of craziness in between the listing and closings, which was all out of our control, but she handled everything like a pro and helped keep me sane. She knows what she's doing and knows the business, plus she can refer you to so many people from attorneys, to lenders, to handy men, and even movers. She was definitely a pleasure to work with and if you are searching for a realtor, trust me when I tell you she's the one!
