About Susan

As an agent who is an expert in Kankakee, Iroquois, and Ford Counties, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to buying and selling real estate in this area. The market is not the same everywhere, so you need someone trustworthy for up-to-date information. My team and I are happy to serve you, and here are some of the things we can do for you: "Find Your Next Home" You need someone who knows this area inside and out! We will work with you to find the right home at the right price - including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - as well as the essential criteria you have for your ideal home. "Sell a Home" When it's time to move, you need an agent who will aggressively advertise your home, show it in the best light to prospective buyers, firmly negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork, and supervise the closing. My team and I will take care of everything, from start to finish. "Consult on Home Selling Tactics" Many times, buyers can't visualize living in your home. I will advise you on how to make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even just painting the walls can be the difference between a house that sits on the market or a quick sale.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Kankakee?

It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Kankakee?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Kankakee is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
