WHAT ARE MY CLIENTS SAYING?
“Kelsey was such a pleasure to work with. I was a first time home buyer, so that meant I had a ton of questions and wanted to make sure I was making a good investment! Kelsey was patient with me and provided honest feedback about the market, and she was able to point me to an amazing area that I am so happy I purchased in. There were multiple offers on the property I purchased and Kelsey was able to advise me on aspects of the offer that would appeal best to the buyer — and it worked! She also made herself available to write the contract an hour after we viewed the property. She walked me through the closing process, provided recommendations for a great lawyer and lender, and was available any time I needed something clarified. I truly feel as if I got a great deal in an area of Chicago that fits me best — West Town. I would highly recommend reaching out to Kelsey if you are looking to purchase — she knew the market, trends, value, and kept me, basically, anxiety free during the process.” – KM
“After searching for a realtor to buy our first home for quite some time, we stumbled upon Kelsey Shaw. Kelsey met with us for brunch and gave us detailed information about the buying process. She had a full list of items of things we needed in our home and things we wished to have. She set out realistic expectations within our budget and was not pushy to make us her clients. Soon after our meeting, Kelsey sent us many options and once I selected our perfect home, she arranged a special second showing as my other half hadn’t seen the home due to business travel-something the seller did not seem very interested in. Kelsey is responsive even during non-business hours and even assists me with real estate related questions after our purchase. OH! She also recommended a company to refinish our hardwood floors and to paint our entire unit. The results looks fantastic. Seriously, Kelsey made this very scary process a very seamless and easy one for us. She is even invited to our Holiday party this year and for years to come!” – NH
“Kelsey was a pleasure to work with. Throughout our buying experience, she supported us in small ways that made all the difference. She let us into the home we were interested in buying more times than any agent should be expected to! She helped us carry in groceries in the pouring rain the night before closing. She made buying our dream home less terrifying, and humanized the process. She always had that extra moment show that she truly cared.” – AB
“Being a first-time investment property buyer, I couldn’t have asked for a better broker to represent me than Kelsey Shaw. I was looking for an investment property for over six months and Kelsey assisted me every step of the way! She set up a search that exactly match my criteria, attended countless showings that I requested and used her extensive market knowledge to go through every pro and con of the properties that we saw. Kelsey was always quick to pick up the phone if I had any questions and always made time for me. In the end Kelsey helped me find the perfect investment property that matched exactly what I was working for. She was present through every step of the negotiations and even after closing on the property still checks up and makes sure that everything is still going well. I would highly recommend Kelsey Shaw to anyone. She has extensive knowledge of the Chicago market and surrounding suburbs and is extremely responsive. She gave me assurance that I was purchasing the right building!” – BD
“Kelsey was a dream to work with. She was responsive, knowledgeable, supportive and kind during a very overwhelming and sometime stressful relocation process to Chicago. She gave me great insight into the different neighborhoods in the city and did a fantastic job of showing me many different options. I highly recommend Kelsey and look forward to a long-term business relationship.” – JA
“Kelsey was great to work with and found us exactly the place we are looking for! We had a bit of a laundry list of requests and wanted a pretty low price too being recent grads. Kelsey worked diligently to send us many options in the neighborhood we wanted and always under our price range. We love our new apartment, I would recommend her to anyone!” – MD
“Kelsey was a great source of knowledge during my apartment hunting experience. She was very responsive, honest and helped me navigate my first lease signing experience so that I felt confident in my choice! Kelsey even went to the apartment showing when I was unable to take the time off of work, but did not want to miss out on a potentially perfect apartment–she took great photos and provided an accurate reflection of the building. Her professional insight was appreciated greatly and I would absolutely recommend her for others searching for their perfect spot!” – KM
“Kelsey Shaw is a gem amongst the never ending list of rocky Chicago realtors. Apartment searching with her was very simple, she sent places daily with in my budget and she lined them up for a day of showings. Her advice on each place was spot on and so helpful when making a difficult decision on where to live in Chicago. She was so knowledgable that I was able to decide on a place the same day as the showings. I plan to use her again in the future” – DS
“Kelsey helped me find a wonderful apartment when I made the move from the suburbs to the city. She helped me every step of the way and made it so easy. I stayed in that apartment for 2 years until I was ready for my next move. Kelsey helped me find my next great apartment this year (2018) in the same stress-free manor as with the first. As long as I live in Chicago, I will go to Kelsey Shaw for my home-finding needs!” – KS
“Kelsey helped us find a rental while we were in North Carolina. She even arranged a walk-through via FaceTime because we were unable to come to Chicago. She worked hard to help us secure the condo that we really wanted. She knows the area well.” – RH
