It’s all about you ~

It is my pleasure to work with you.  You are my number 1 top priority.  I appreciate your business and I value your trust.  

Buying a home ~ 

Finding a home, moving, learning a new neighborhood can be overwhelming.  I will smooth out the process for you from start to finish.  I have intimate knowledge of neighborhoods and communities to share with you.  I can help you find the home that best matches your needs and wants.  We'll find a home at the right price, in the location and neighborhood where you want to be and in the condition you want. I will preview homes for you and will arrange priority appointments so you are first in to see the home.  Do you need a referral for a mover, contractor, lender or want to know the best shops and restaurants?  I can help you. I have a wealth of knowledge about the market, the community, services, shops and other services and professionals.  

Selling a home ~

I’ll prepare a market analysis for your home and will help you organize and stage your home for marketing.  I will plan and prepare a custom marketing plan for your home that will give you a competitive edge.  Presentation of your home is key in any market, and I will help you present your home as a showcase.  I will keep you up to date with market activity, the homes that are new on market, the homes that are selling and the homes that are not.  I network with attorneys, real estate brokers and title companies to ensure a smooth closing.

Market Expertise ~

My strength in contract negotiations, marketing and communication skills are assets that give you the winning edge in any market. I represent you, and will always place your interests first. I will guide you through the transaction from your inking of the contract to a successful closing. I am available whenever you need me, real time all the time. When I represent you, you can consider it done!


Thank you for your business 

 I value your trust

"Victoria was terrific to work with. Extremely proactive and attentive to getting the house sold. As I was living outside of the chicagoland area she went above and beyond what a Realtor is normally asked to do. Within two days of listing we had a decision to make on which offer to go with. The closing went as planned with no surprises. I highly recommend working with Victoria as you will certainly receive the excellent advice and service you are looking for."

"Victoria knows the area and the market. She was positively suggestive as to how we could prepare the house for the best sale. She guided us with local village requirements and worked very professionally with us. Yes, we would recommend her to anyone."

"Victoria Atkins is a smart and savvy agent who helped us to find and buy a house in Chicago almost thirty years ago -- and who this year helped us to sell that house. Having been a real estate agent in Chicago, Oak Park, and the surrounding suburbs for many years, Victoria brings to the table wide experience in the housing market in this area, an ability to analyze the wealth of related data that is available online, and a delightful and helpful intuitive sense about potential buyers. She also listens to her clients, informing them of the various factors, laying out clear options and recommendations, and encouraging discussion that helps them to make good decisions.

Victoria is a very personable and active agent, scheduling open houses and taking other actions that keep up the flow of potential buyers. She initiates communication and responds quickly to calls, emails, and texts. Throughout the sometimes stressful selling process, we always felt that she was immediately available to us to give sound advice, suggestions, and sometimes reassurance. We appreciated the balance Victoria provided between optimism and realism. Throughout the process we felt informed but never pressured. Best of all, we never felt that we were alone in this process.

We were happy with the timing of the sale of our house and the final price that was realized. So in terms of both the "bottom line" and the process for achieving it, we are grateful to Victoria for her strong action and her good advice. From our experience working with Victoria, we recommend her highly to anyone who is seeking to either sell or buy a house."
