‟Ronda makes home buying and selling an easier process. My wife and I have chosen Ronda to represent us in 3 real estate transactions since 2004: twice for home purchases and once for a home sale. We successfully recommended her to friends and family and will continue to chose her in the future. Ronda has a sharp eye to a house's uniqueness and va lue and communicates any issues directly. She excels at understanding the dynamics and price ranges of the market, especially on the City of Chicago's north side. She quickly understands her clients' goals and works hard to help achieve them” Read More ▾

‟Very knowledgeable about Chicago neighborhoods and helped us find the home that fit our needs and budget. Ronda will be with you from start to finish.”

Matthew Sorenson

Seller
‟Ronda represented my family's sale of our Streeterville town home in Spring 2016. She did a tremendous job and delivered a great result. We went to contract within 10 days of listing and closed at 3% off our listing price. She is close to the details, highly responsive, exercises sound judgment and market knowledge, and was an absolute pleasure to work with on our home sale. I strongly endorse Ronda to support a luxury home sale in Chicago” Read More ▾

Julie Dreixler

Buyer
‟Ronda helped us find our home when we moved back to the City. She was very knowledgeable of the neighborhoods and quickly got a feel for what we were looking for. In fact, she was so sure of what I wanted that while I was away on a business trip, she found THE townhouse, viewed it with my husband and proceeded with the offer without me ever seeing it! As it turned out, we got the house and I was thrilled! Ronda did not misguide us! She is hard working, detailed, patient and fun to be around! I am happy to say we not only found a fabulous place in the City but also a great friend” Read More ▾
