Hello, and WELCOME to my website!

Since you've stopped by to visit, I bet Real Estate has been on your mind?  May I ask what thoughts you've been tossing around?

> Has your first child arrived (and with two dogs on top of it) your current rental has you pinched for space? Thinking about buying your first home?

> Is your last child off to college and those empty bedrooms are collecting dust? Thinking downsizing to a smaller home might fit your current needs better (and save you money)?

> Have the increasing property taxes made your monthly payment very stressful? Thinking about relocating or refinancing or appealing those taxes?

> Have you had more children and you're all on top of each other? Thinking of upsizing to a home that better fits your growing family's needs?

> Have you just been transferred to Great Lakes Naval Base?  Are you thinking of leasing or purchasing a home but need help finding your way around?

> Is your health not quite what it used to be and navigating stairs each day is practically impossible? Would finding a one-story home provide you greater comfort?

In life, one thing is certain...CHANGE!

Change, whether it be happy or otherwise can be very stressful. When it comes to change that involves real estate matters, it can not only be stressful but confusing and overwhelming as well.

"I hired Frances to sell my condo in Arlington Heights. From start to finish, she was professional and responsive. She assessed the property for repairs needed, provided several possible references for local vendors for work to be done, took excellent pictures for the listing, etc. She went above and beyond whenever possible. For example, when a potential buyer placed a bid, she verified their qualification and suggested we respond accordingly whether they were truly qualified or just pre-qualified by a web site. She didn't suggest a low price to make the sale, so we started it high to test the market. We got a good price and a fast sale."

"Choosing Frances Simons is, by far, the best decision we made when we relocated to the Chicago area. She was the most conscientious, responsive, detail-oriented, friendly, and resourceful agent with which we have ever worked. We moved here from Colorado and didn't know anyone. We had no idea where to begin to look, until we began working with Frances. Our first realtor was inexperienced and slow to respond. Frances was not only great at finding our home, but helped us with so many other things. Not only is Frances wonderful, but her agency is so supportive and professional. Frances has won numerous awards for her exceptional success and for her work ethic.

Because Frances has lived and worked in this area for many years, she was able to direct us to cultural spots, great restaurants, professional networks, and great places to hike and bike. Not only did she find us a great house, but helped us make it a home. Anyone interested in a masterful real estate agent should look no further than Frances. She is a gem and I highly recommend her."
