Holly Connors's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with
Holly Connors

  • Holly helped me buy a home

      brutally honest & direct realtor who tells you the way it is - not what you want to hear and sugarcoated. that's a HUGE difference that sets her apart from the so many other realtors who claim they know the area.

    • "We worked with Holly to rent out our Chicago condominium. As we live out of town, it's always difficult to find someone you can trust to deal with all the little things that come up, but Holly was great and would absolutely work with her again!"

      - BM
    • "We were extremely pleased with Holly. She is very professional, honest, personable and gives great advice. All her suggestions helped sell our home, which went quickly and smoothly. We highly recommend Holly to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home. We are so happy we choose Holly and we are looking forward to working with her to find our new home."

      - KH
    • "Holly is an attentive and aware broker. When an issue arose, she usually responded within moments with either an answer or a time she would reply with an answer. Just what a seller wants to hear."

      - MG
    • "Holly is a dedicated, and easy to work with professional! We had contracted with two Realtors previously to sell our home, and Holly was able to close the deal in a short amount of time. She had a plan, a targeted buyer, and clear implementation plan. @properties is the company to work with and Holly is your realtor of choice!"

      - LT
    • "Holly worked for many months to find my Fiance & myself the perfect house for us. As a first time home buyer, she pointed out things that I would have overlooked during the process. She understood our budget, timeline & was able to find a house that we have just moved to, with a few weeks left on our lease at our old apartment."

      - CL
    • "It was a pleasure working with Holly and her team. Holly always got back to us right away with any questions we had and was able to quickly get us out to see the homes we were interested in. Holly is personable and honest which made the home buying process fun. Holly also had great references for inspectors, attorneys, etc. The house we purchased had multiple offers and Holly was able to help guide us to make it our home!"

      - KC
    • "This is the third property we've worked with Holly on and to say that her professionalism and expertise is the best in the industry, is an understatement. There isn't another person I would entrust with my real estate needs. On top of that, she's hilarious!"

      - CC
    • "Holly and her team were amazing . We are out of country buyers and they made the experience easy and fun. Holly was extremely knowledgeable and honest. I would recommend her to everyone."

      - SM
    • "We were very pleased with Hollys ability to sell our old house and help us buy our new home. When selling our home, we found Holly to be responsive and knowledgeable about the market. Where Holly really shined as a professional was with her ability to leverage her network to bring in buyers. Most realtors we spoke with used the traditional efforts of sticking a sign in the front yard, hosting an open house and listing online. Hollys marketing went beyond this to actively reach-out to prospective buyers and agents based on an understanding of the neighborhood. This proactive and creative approach is what helped get our home sold.On the buy side, Hollys network in the North and Northwest suburbs is unparalleled. Her knowledge of the area went beyond the town and neighborhood but to the school and block level. She knew of homes before they went on sale and she was always able to get us on day one, sometimes before. In a hot housing market, this was the key to us finding a great home. She was direct when she needed to be but also very patient and easy to work with. Because of her hard work and ability to get things done, we highly recommend Holly without reservations."

    • "I began to believe my move to Chicago really could happen when I met Holly. She combines thorough knowledge of the area with deep love for it - -and she shares her knowledge generously, even before she is "hired" as one's agent. She listens carefully and modifies her recommendations accordingly, and she works with excellent partners and support staff. For all these reasons, she guides an efficient and enjoyable search process. Around the edges, one glimpses her high standards for herself and for other members of the real estate profession she loves. When she was listing agent for properties we saw, she honored all her obligations openly and clearly. She was a skilled advisor throughout the negotiation process, and stands ready to ease the move with her contacts and associations. A definite "yes! work with Holly!""

      - KJ
    • "We have utilized Holly as both a purchase and sales agent for our home.. We have been extremely impressed and happy with the outcome on both ends of our home purchase and sale. Holly was open with us at all times and allowed us to accurately price our home for the best possible outcome. The sale of our property was much sooner than we had originally expected.I would recommend Holly to anyone who is in the market to either sell,or purchase a property."

      - PT
    • "I felt we were in good hands from looking at the first house to completing the closing. Holly made sure there were no surprises, and "held our hand" throughout the whole process. She stayed positive and professional, and had our confidence and trust at all times. Thanks Holly! We love our new home and appreciate all you did to make it possible."

      - SB
    • "Holly sold our house at a price significantly better than we expected and so quickly that we didn't even need to have marketing materials printed!"

      - SR
    • "Holly was a great help to us in ensuring an easy transistion. This was the first of the past moves where my wife was more involved, and as a reult there was a greater stress level for her as we began to seek to sell our property. Holly was able to put her at ease and demonstrate how she understood the stress points and would ensure that she would navigate her through those areas. Our total experience was very professional. I had no doubts that Holly would represent us well and negotiate a deal that would be satisfactory. The results of her efforts were greatly appreciated."

      - DL
    • "Holly did an amazing job! I would highly recommend her for either a buy or sale of a home. Her style is honest and direct, and she went above and beyond to accommodate us and make the process go as smooth as possible."

      - JK
    • "Holly supported us throughout our home search and helped us really identify what it was we wanted in a home. We re grateful for her professionalism, enthusiasm, real estate experience, and overall commitment."

    • "There is no realtor like Holly, period. She has answers for everything, beyond knowledgeable of her industry, and gets the job done right. Her flexibility, honesty, and her "no-fluff-hit-you-between-the-eyes" style makes her stand out from the rest. We've had realtors try and sell us homes, but Holly has tried to not sell us certain homes no matter how much we wanted it. That makes her extremely credible for looking out for our best interest. Her work ethic is outstanding, and I'm curious when she sleeps. Without a doubt, I'd use her again...but I'm sure she'd run for the hills. :)"

    • "We were so happy that we decided to use Holly Connors as our real estate broker. She was knowledgeable and helped us tremendously in making the right decision on the property we purchased. She was very tuned into our wants/needs and was quick to change when our needs changed. We loved that Holly had a pulse on the property values in the area and was able to help us get a realistic value of the properties we were looking at. We also found it extremely valuable that Holly could assess issues in some of the properties and help us understand how big of an issue it would be. The house hunt got very overwhelming and Holly's guidance was invaluable.We really felt like Holly became an extended part of our family. As happy as we were when our sale finally closed and we were able to move into our new home, it was a bitter sweet day because we would not be interacting with Holly on a daily basis as we had for the past 4 months. I would highly recommend using Holly to anyone I know that is looking to sell/buy a property."

    • "Extremely helpful, responsive, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with! Pulled every string possible for me to reach a tight closing schedule! Very thankful for being able to work with her!"

    • "In a challenging market agents need to have patience and perseverance, Holly Connors has both. It's a pleasure to work with Holly because she understands the market, her clients and has a great team of attorneys and lenders to get the deal done. I have worked with Holly on both sides of the deal and she is an exceptional agent. I look forward to showing her properties and welcome her into mine."

    • "In my opinion, Holly Connors is by far the best realtor in the state of Illinois. Holly sold our house in just 6 days! From my first interaction with her to the closing of my home, she has been hard-working, responsive, dependable and professional. Months before meeting Holly, my husband and I had our home listed with another realtor. After a stressful few months, we still couldn't sell it, so we took it off the market. When we decided to list our home again this Spring, we began looking for another realtor. We met with several who were still not very impressive. By a stroke of luck, we found Holly. Holly immediately took charge. She gave us direction for staging our home and confidence in the process, which greatly reduced our stress levels. She is extremely smart and hard-working. She responded immediately to every phone call and email (I received emails from her as late as midnight and as early as 6 a.m.). She also has great interpersonal skills, which I've learned is so important in a realtor. I cannot say enough about what an amazing realtor Holly is. I will continue to recommend her to anyone I know."

    • EC"Holly Connors is a driven and outstanding professional. As a realtor with Baird and Warner I had the opportunity to work with Holly in a very demanding and fast-paced environment in which she thrived. Her expertise in marketing, communications and negotiation helped her to become one of @ Properties' most valued agents. She is truly passionate about her work and is also committed to helping others achieve success, a quality that can be rare in the world of residential real estate."

    • "Holly and I have worked together on numerous occasions. I have found Holly to be an exceptional person to work with. She's very hard working, a team player, and strives to get the job done with utmost integrity and attention to detail. If given the opportunity I would work with Holly again."

      - KW
    • "Holly is one of a few individuals of whom I completely trust. She is a complete professional, very diligent, and most of all personable. I know that she can be counted on to be "the" expert in her field because of her she always strives to be the best. I have known Holly for almost 7 years and without a doubt she has the integrity, the capability, and the personality to make any deal at any reasonable price happen."
