Carol Hunt was exceptional in selling my home. Carol went far beyond the marketing process. Her network of service providers was invaluable in preparing the house for the market. When an inspection issue came up, Carol knew exactly who to contact and was able to resolved the buyer's concerns quickly. While I was 2,000 miles away Carol managed the entire process. And, she did it all with a sense of humor and a chuckle. I highly recommend Carol to anyone looking to sell or buy a house on the North Shore!!!

-Barbara M.
Carol Hunt found my forever home. Carol focused on my wish list, skillfully educated me to my options and found the perfect home for my life style at a price within my means. If I were ever to sell or buy again, I would not hesitate to call Carol.

-Debby W.
Due to your diligent work and guidance selling our home we smoothly made our transition out of state. We now understand why you are such a successful Realtor!

Great job on finding, and then, selling our Wilmette home. Thanks to your sales and negotiating strategies we were able to realize tremendous appreciation in the value of our home. 

-Dana and Kathy
We could not have completed building our dream home without your hand-holding, advice, shoulders to lean on, attention to detail (big & small), encouragement and friendship. Carol Hunt was simply fantastic. 

-Amy & Mark
Carol is the consummate real estate professional, with in-depth knowledge of the local market. As buyers new to the area, she steered us to solid properties in strong locations and schooled us on some of the idiosyncrasies of local construction. As sellers, she gave us an objective and comprehensive assessment of market comparables, not an easy thing to do in a difficult housing environment and this eclectic community. As a result, our house was priced fairly and sold quickly on very favorable terms. I'd use Carol again in a heartbeat!"   

-Jeanne & Tim M.
Carol did a fabulous job of selling our "as is" property, during a brutal winter season. At all times she was professional, congenial and knowledgeable. We would recommend her totally, to anyone.   

-Barbara S.
From beginning to end Carol gave us wise counsel as to pricing our house and negotiated the intricacies of the entire transaction. 

-Phil K.
Carol is beyond professional, knowledgeable, personable and skilled at walking a client through the entire process in a clear and supportive way. Carol went above and beyond what we expected and she was strong in guiding us through the entire process. 

-Alice & Kees W.
I highly recommend Carol. She is an expert in what she does and always has her clients best interest in mind. Going above and beyond, she would preview properties and alert us to new listings, even before they went into the MLS. Being first time buyers and new to the area, Carol was an invaluable expert. 

-Katie & Adam S.
If Carol was an Olympic athlete, she certainly would win a Gold Medal.   

-Tim S.
Is there a real estate agent Hall of Fame? Carol Hunt should be enshrined in it. 

-Debbie & Kevin
Carol did a tremendous job selling our house for an excellent price in 33 days in a very difficult market. She recommended and coordinated thoughtful value added improvements which was a tremendous benefit to our family. I highly recommend Carol Hunt for her professionalism, pleasant attitude and dedication to quality service. 

-Jim R.
“Carol just helped us sell the house she sold us in 1986 in Kenilworth. In this market, it took every bit of her expertise, diligence, and persistence to close on a very complicated sale. If you look up Real Estate Pro in the dictionary, you’ll see Carol’s picture. She’s really that good.”    

-Kathy & Bill W.

YOU DID IT! YOU SOLD THE HOUSE AT A GREAT PRICE! Thanks so much for your guidance, good judgment and continuous hard work on my behalf.

Your intuition and ability to accurately read people closed the deal. Carol's commitment to excellence and the pride she takes in her job is evident.

"As a potential relocating family, Carol Hunt spent two days familiarizing us with schools, villages and life in general on Chicago’s North Shore. Carol‘s depth of knowledge, temperament and individual attention made us feel at ease. Our family left knowing we could make more specific decisions. It was a great experience and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Carol."  

-Holden S.
"We will enjoy our new home for years to come thanks to your efforts! We were very impressed with your suggestion to sell our garage separately from our condo. Due to your creative thinking and negotiating skills we were able to move on with our lives when you put together two separate transactions -- a buyer for the condo and a buyer for the garage. Your patience in finding the perfect house for us, handling the myriad of paperwork and completing three smooth transactions was remarkable."                                       

-Rachel & Peter L.
