More about Kati Spaniak

Dear Potential Seller, You know how people say that you work with people that you are similar to?? Well, that is no different in the real estate world. We find that our best matches in our business are professional, educated homeowners who value communication, honesty, systems, processes and accountability. In general, most people find us because they are researching all of their options and have asked friends and family for recommendations. In addition, they have done extensive research online to find the best and most experienced agent. Our customers are tired of being lied to, steered down the wrong path, or given advice that is inaccurate. They are exhausted of being ‘sold’ by a real estate professional with little experience. They don’t have time to be involved in the day-to-day operations of selling a home. They want an honest opinion about how to sell their home, and ...

Kati Spaniak

  • Kati helped me buy a home

      I wish there were more stars to give! Kati was so very much more than we could have ever hoped for in an agent. She went above and beyond to help make our purchase completely painless, and even enjoyable. I cannot recommend Kati highly enough.

    • We listed our home during the Pandemic Summer of 2020. Mid-July was our starting point. Sale and closing on November 30, 2020. Kati Spaniak and Associates operate with a full staff of helpful, knowledgeable agents and staff. Michael Ciesla manages the legal including all aspects of the closing. More than just real estate agents, lawyers, and staff, this group offers invaluable advice since they have sold many homes in the area and confronted many different situations. We were selling our home of 20 years and the property of 35 years. (We rebuilt our home in 2001on the same lot). We felt a kinship to Kati since we do live in the same neighborhood and are devoted fans of Northbrook as a great place to live, work, and go to school. Our home offered the challenge of being quite large on 2 acres. Not right for everyone but when the right buyers came along, the Spaniak team closed the deal.

    • Kati and her team held our hand every step of the way in buying our house. I've moved many times over the years and this was far and away the most professional, easiest and most satisfying experience I've had. Wouldn't go with any other realtor.

      - Richard G. - Northbrook
    • Kati and her team were wonderful to work with, using thoroughly professional people. We highly recommend Katie and her Team for house selling. They make the process very smooth.

      - Ellen R.
    • The Spaniak Team were really great. Katie helped us understand the market in our area and how we were not getting people to come in as we were over-priced for the market. We adjusted pricing and sold within 3 months. Then they helped us find our current home!

      - James B.

      - Chris A.
    • As a first time homebuyer, I felt very lost at the beginning of this process. The Spaniak team made everything SO easy for me. Heather helped guide me and introduced me to every person I needed to complete the process. I have never felt so at ease, I highly recommend this team. Thank you so much!

      - Abigail Y.
    • My husband and I had an incredible experience with the Spaniak Team! Throughout the entire process they were so responsive, helpful, and right-on with their expert advice. What I really appreciated too was their honesty--they tell you the real deal so it makes it so much easier to figure out what to do! Plus we love our house!

      - Mary Jo R. - Northbrook
    • I can't find the words to express how amazing the Spaniak team is and how grateful we are for having selected them. Our home had been on the market with another realtor for over 6 months with only one (ridiculously low) offer. We decided it was time to try another realty group. Kati and her team took over and had us fix up and stage the house. We had a solid offer within 3 weeks and closed earlier than planned. My only regret is that we waited so long to call Kati.

      - Mark P.
    • Kati and the entire Spaniak team are true professionals. I recently attended the "Downsizing" seminar they hosted, and it was very informative, entertaining and well worth everyone's time. I truly appreciated the open sharing, and genuine approach that Kati and her team take toward ensuring successful customer relationships. Their extensive knowledge of the North Shore real estate market was obvious to everyone in the room. Thanks again Kati for the opportunity to learn and share ideas!

      - Bill D.
    • My wife and I were very impressed with Kati Spaniak and her team (about 5-7 people) at every step of the process. They were great to work with and we always felt informed and confident they were going to deliver the best result. You will be impressed by Kati's knowledge of the local market.Here is a little about our experience. Kati does not try to 'sweet talk' you to get your listing. Her feedback will be very well grounded and spot on. When we first invited her to the house she walked through and gave us very honest feedback on condition, marketability and the current market. I told her we would be willing to spend $15,000+ if needed to remodel, paint, etc. for selling (and we had specific suggestions). She said not needed to most and that we would not get our money back. In the end, we did some painting and we were prepared to stage the first floor. While on the 'private market' (which you should ask about) starting late March, we had 7 showings (which she curated and prepped the other realtor) and 2 offers. Start to finish was just three months (late March to closing at the end of June). Very unusual and not necessarily what others will experience.My recommendation- invite Kati to your house to get acquainted and to get her assessment of the market and what she thinks you could sell for. I am confident her recommendations will be measured and spot-on.The most important thing I can say in closing is that by following Kati's advice we netted more money and faster than if we have tried to control the process.

    • I have used Spaniak Team for two transactions and on both occassions my experience has been excellent. At every step in the transaction, Kati and her team were guiding me and providing me honest and practical advice. They are very proactive in their communication, very customer focused, and dependable. If an opportunity comes up I will work with the Spaniak Team again.

      - Bhavesh M.
    • Offered timely suggestions despite a very tough market situation. Always respondEd in a timely manner and made me feel like I was getting personalized attention. Overall a very good experience both with buying and selling. Strongly recommend to all!

      - Neelima D.
    • The Spaniak team is always amazing to deal with! They are always on top of everything and provide top notch Service! I highly recommend them!

      - Jonathan E.
    • Kati and her team went above and beyond for our family. From our first meeting til after our closing, she and her team offered advice, support, and tremendous care. I would be remiss to not share that Kati is a marketing genius. She sold our home during the height of the pandemic and took extra care in showing our home through live zoom tours. Even during this uncertain time she made herself available and attentive. She was there for us every step of the way. We are grateful to she and her team. They are top notch!

      - Maureen W.
    • Selling our home with Kati and her team was an amazing experience. Selling your home can feel scary and overwhelming but Kati made it feel easy and guided us with her vast experience of the area and real estate. I highly recommend meeting with Kati if youre going to list your home because you wont have to waste your time and shop around after. She also has quality recommendations for all who are involved in the process. Take her advice and go with who she knows- she has the wisdom of knowing the right people such as loan officers, lawyers, stagers, etc who are as seasoned in the field as she is. This will save you time and energy of finding these people on your own and possibly using someone who has no clue what they are doing (speaking from experience here!!!)

      - Stacie S.
    • The Spaniak Team gets the job done! They provided us with experienced advice, paid attention to important details, and fully understood what it would take to sell our house. The team was very responsive to anything that came along. They made sure the house was priced properly and staged properly. During the Covid pandemic selling a home had a lot of challenges. The Spaniak Team was sensitive to our needs as well as the needs of people looking at our home. They provided all the protective equipment and made sure someone accompanied the showings. Very professional and very well informed. We recommend The Spaniak Team very highly.

      - Alan W. - Northbrook
    • We had an outstanding experience working with Kati and her team to sell our house. The recommendations were spot on to attract people to the house and she communicated superbly with us as the process unfolded. We had some challenges with a particular issue with the house and she aggressively managed them with the potential and final buyers agents. She is the definitive expert in Northbrook and achieved what others could not. We underestimated the value of a great agent as they can make good better and bad manageable. Dont make that mistake even if you think you have a good property. Hire the best in Northbrook, hire Kati Spaniak.

      - Paul Y. Northbrook
    • Kati made it all easy. She and Diane were always available and made the process very enjoyable.

      - Alan L.
    • Kati was great to work. We sold our house in November, before the holidays and within ten days we had an offer. Kati indicated that if the house was priced right, it should sell. The closing took some time, but Kati worked with her staff and keep everything on track until we closed. Kati provided timely updates and was very organized throughout the process. It was a pleasure working with Kati and her staff.

      - Bob L.
    • What a great team. Communication was phenomenal. They marketed my property well and they exceed my expectations.

      - Greg B.
    • We would recommend the Spaniak Team! They really know what they are doing and have specific knowledge about certain neighborhoods. Our agent was super kind and very responsive. As first time buyers we were very inexperienced. Our agent had a lot of intuition when it came to figuring what price to start with when negotiating. We really appreciated her experience and confidence!!! We got our dream house at an amazing cost considering the value of the home. We will not forget our experience! Thank you!

      - Tina P.
    • Kati was our first and only choice for a broker when we decided to sell our home of fifty years. During our initial meeting she put us at ease, answering our questions and concerns with extreme patience. We were so impressed with her knowledge of the market, especially the Northbrook area. During the time our house was on the market, Kati was constantly in touch and only a phone call or email away. Her positive approach and high energy were a blessing to us. Kati constantly demonstrated professionalism, dependability, an extremely pleasant attitude, and a tremendous work ethic. We have the highest regard for Kati and would recommend her to anyone!

      - Bill & Karin S.
    • Kati was one of the most organized and professional real estate agents I have ever met. She guided and coached my wife and I through the home selling process, from staging, pictures, assessments, to the closing and moving. Kati and her support team were reliable, collaborative and had a can do attitude. I was very confident in Kati selling my home. She was great at asking questions to understand our needs. When we received an offer on our home, we were still looking for a new home and Kati reached out to her network and helped find us a new home shortly after our current homes close. Highly recommend Kati and her team!

      - Bill and Georgia L.
    • Kati helped sell our condo in Northbrook. She took charge of the entire process from getting the condo ready for sale ( organizing emptying it, fixing it up and getting it ready to show) to the final sale. And, she and her team provided true turnkey service on these since I was traveling overseas during the whole listing period. Kati provided valuable advice on pricing and negotiating the final deal (and responding to unreasonable offers). I think the price we got was very reasonable and reflected the hard work ?Kati put into it. She and her team provided constant updates on the status of the transaction as well as what else was on the market. I intend to use her services fir any future real estate transaction that vine up. I can whole-heartedly recommend her and her team. They are true professionals and good people. Thank you, Kati !!!

      - Chandra
    • I would give Kati 6 stars if I could. She outlined a plan and then delivered on it. Hands down the best experience with a broker we have ever had. Could not give her a higher recommendation. Kati was amazing. Best experience I have ever had with a broker. She was tremendous from start to finish.

      - Jeff and Elise M.
    • Fantastic experience all around Kati & her team are the best! Attentive, responsive, honest, helpful, etc. Would use them again without question!

      - Adam and Michele B.
    • Kati is very knowledgeable and honestly guided my husband and I through the entire sales process. The staging service provided as part of the package really transformed my condo and made it far more appealing to potential buyers. We had to leave town before closing and Kati and her team handled all details with minimal involvement from us. The fact she has a support staff working with her makes for quick response at all times. Her marketing strategies are very technologically aggressive and reports to the seller provide valuable information on social media marketing. I think @properties has to be at the forefront of technology in real estate sales. I loved the app to schedule appointments for showings. My condo, when compared to other sales Kati does, was a comparatively lower-priced property. I felt I was given the same careful attention as a multi-million dollar property.

    • Kati is professional, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and courteous. It was a pleasure to have her as our broker.

      - Stuart S.
    • Kati was awesome from start of process to the close. We could not have completed the process without her.

      - Paul and Tess H.
    • Kati Spaniaks combination of competitive analysis and home staging was invaluable. Our house was valued on the cusp between two price points. To position ourselves for a quick sale, we listed at the high end of the lower range to attract more buyers. A contract at asking price was accepted in only five days. We highly recommend Kati to anyone selling their home!

      - Carl and Mary S.
    • Kati is an amazing broker. I was leery of Real Estate Brokers after having my home on the market for 6 years. Kati got us a contract in 4 weeks! She is smart, aggressive(but not pushy)and knows the market. If you want to sell your home, I cant recommend Kati Spaniak enough!

      - John D.
    • Kati was extremely well informed with regard to the marketing of the property and she promptly communicated with me as to all happenings that occurred in the sale of the property. I would highly recommend her as a broker in the future because she is very knowledgeable and personable.

      - Gila P.
    • Working with Kati was an absolute pleasure, her thorough knowledge of the market helped us determine a listing price that achieved our goal. We had a quick sale at a great price. Throughout every phase of the process Kati was there to guide us and to provide whatever was required. Her network of professionals, from photographers, to stagers, to inspectors handled all our needs efficiently and kept the process running smoothly. We could not have been any happier with the service and would highly recommend Kati to anyone buying or selling a home.
