Monica is an A+. 110% professional, smart, respectful and pro-active. She staged our home well and always provided immediate feedback. Monica jumped hurdles for us and indeed our home sold more quickly than expected.  Ellen & Jon, Deerfield

Monica was very helpful in identifying properties that fit what we were looking for. Her communication throughout the process was exceptional and her attitude was always great! S. Briggs - Arlington Heights  

I think Monica went above and beyond all my expectations. She is a dedicated agent that makes a stressful process enjoyable!  S. Martinez - Barrington

Monica kept us constantly "in the know" regarding all aspects of our sale. She went over and above which was especially important as we now live almost 200 miles away. She always acted on our behalf. P. Smith - Deerfield  

"Monica Balder helped me purchase the best condo in the Deerfield area at a time when I was down-sizing from a three-bedroom townhouse in Libertyville and wanted to find an affordable property quickly.  I am 81 years young and didn't wish to move from rental property to rental property while I tried to find a place that fit my lifestyle.  Ms. Balder educated me about the Deerfield housing market, showed me units within my budget, answered all questions and concerns I had regarding a condo I liked, and helped me bid a fair price which secured my new residence.  And to top it all, Monica arranged a title company, lawyer, and closing date to fit my time constraints so I was able to close hassle-free, making my move as stress-free as possible. " Burich, Deerfield  

If you are trying to sell your home, you must have Monica Balder on your team!  Monica  is a determined, focused Real Estate professional that will do whatever it takes to get your home sold.  JK, Riverwoods

I have always felt I can rely on Monica for her insight into what’s going on in the market and more specifically on my own projects. I have used Monica on both the buy and sell side on numerous projects and feel her customer service is unique and refreshing and her clients always come first. JR, Deerfield/Highland Park 

Monica was a tireless advocate for me in my recent purchase of a new home.  She listened carefully to what I was looking for, then found me exactly the home I was looking for on the first try.  Monica stayed on top of the transaction from start to finish, reminding me of deadlines, making suggestions for approaches to issues, and otherwise assisting in making my new-home purchase as smooth a process as possible.  I have recommended her to a number of friends, all of whom have been very happy with her work. Diane S. - Riverwoods/Deerfield  

Monica was wonderful! We were living in the city w/2 young children and had no time to run up & see houses. She would go and check them out to see if it was right for us. She really understood our wants and needs & found us a great house! Andrea, Highland Park

How did you happen to select Monica Balder for professional service in purchase of your home? Monica was recommended to us by one of her past clients. Would you recommend Monica Balder & Baird & Warner to others? Yes, definitely. Jillian, Chicago
