Betty Spiller
Coldwell Banker Residential
About Betty

It is really hard to blow your own whistle with everything that you have accomplished as an Agent but honestly when I first became an agent my goal was to help my husband who was a builder. I was to find the lots and then after completion of the new homes, market them and sell them. My previous profession was being an accomplished Salon owner, I knew so many people that once the salon was closed and my previous customers found out that I was an agent started calling and asking me to list their homes and to aid them on their purchases. My knowledge of homes, their construction, how things worked and why they didn't be a valuable tool that I passed on to my clients. It wasn't long that my Husband was on his own, my client lists were way too long. I super exceeded a rookie agent in just a short year and became a well-known agent for our area. My three grown children were gone from the "nest" making my full-time status a breeze. I have been Nationally ranked in the top 5 percent of agents nationwide, and also the TOP Agent in the office that I work in for over 15 years strong. I love people and the satisfaction of helping them brings a lot of joy to me. The greatest compliment that I can get is to have a previous client recommend someone to me and say, "you just have to use Betty Spiller to help you, she is the best" If you are looking for an Agent that is hard working , experienced, knowledgeable and can get the job done whether it is listing your property or purchasing one...... Please call me today.

“I thought he knew the area well and worked with me to sell my house. When I needed more time to get ready or limit the hours for shoring because of my work schedule at home he listened to my needs. He shared his opinion, but left final decisions to me. He also did not pressure me to sign a contract as other agents had. “

"As first-time home buyers, we had no idea where to start. We wanted to make sure we selected a Realtor that fit our exact needs. Homelight matched us with a genuine, honest real estate agent. "

Leah C.

"HomeLight followed up to ensure I had found an agent I liked & offered additional help if needed. Advisors on the phone were very polite and helpful."

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Winthrop Harbor?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. 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. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Winthrop Harbor?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell 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.
