I have known Corinne Guest for a little over a year. After searching long and hard for a Realtor, I found Corinne Guest’s website. Her website impressed me and looked very professional. During a visit to Illinois I set up an appointment to meet Corinne and to go over to the property.
Even in this unpredictable market Corinne was optimistic that we could find a buyer. We signed papers and listed the property. I am an out of state owner, and Corinne has been extremely helpful during the entire process. She has been diligent and communicative. She is not afraid to do what is needed to complete a sale.
She is very professional and although I do not have another house to sell, in the Barrington area, I would recommend her to anyone needing to list a house there. Thank you.
Holly and I know real estate brokers/agents and you, Mrs. Guest, are no real estate broker—-at least in terms of the common perception. A guru? Possibly. An advisor? Definitely. Hopefully, even a friend.
If our experience with you is indicative of the manner in which you deal with your clients (and we are sure it is) you are going to give real estate brokers a good name.
We will definitely ensure that everyone we know is aware of your talent. If we can be of service to you by acting as a reference for future clients, please don’t hesitate to use our contact information.
We moved to South Barrington from Florida and bought a family home in a great neighborhood with waterfront views thinking it would be our forever home.
After two years we were homesick for Florida and made the hard decision to sell in a depressed market and return. Corinne was wonderful. She helped us prepare the house ready for sale with guidance on what needed to be done.
Corinne attended every showing. She checked our house before and after before re-setting the alarm and locking up. She was the house caretaker as we had already left!
It took a little while but Corinne she bought us a good offer and we were glad to be able to stay in Florida for the whole thing. The sale closed without event.
