"Lisa was incredible from start to finish. She always made herself available to fit my schedule to discuss the buying and relocating process as well as to attend showings. She also did great in providing area guidance and insight based off of my family's needs. When we found our house, we scheduled a meeting asap, put in an offer asap and Lisa was able to get an agreement the very same day. She took the pressure off one of the most stressful times in life. My family and I can't say enough good things about Lisa, she goes above and beyond. She even picked my family up from the airport when we moved out here and took us to our new home."
- JONATHAN, GENEVA
"Lisa went above and beyond for us!! Looking for a home, as a first time buyer, in this market was not easy, but Lisa made it all possible! She is excellent at what she does! She is diligent, knowledgeable, patient and communicative. As a first time buyer, Lisa always made sure that we understood each step along the way. In addition to Lisa's wonderful work ethic, she is such a kind and caring person! We are so grateful for all of her guidance, encouragement, help and support throughout the whole process! My husband and I could not recommend Lisa enough!!! Thank you, Lisa!"
"Lisa Koonce is a special person and deserves nothing but respect for the assistance she provided us. Her work ethic and determination was so refreshing, knowing someone really cares meant a lot to us. We love our house and it's all possible because of Lisa's help. She is wonderful and I will recommend her to anyone buying a home. Thanks Lisa."
"I'm not entirely sure where to begin, but I'm a first time home buyer moving from a different state. My wife and I were looking to buy our first home and didn't have a clue what we were getting ourselves into... Here are just a couple of reasons why I will never use a different real estate agent in my entire life: First, Lisa treated us like family. It was abundantly evident that she only wanted what was best for my wife and I and that garnered a tremendous amount of trust with me. She knew our budget and criteria well, and when we would ask to see a house we saw pictures of online, if she knew it wasn't right for us, or had glaring issues that we couldn't possibly have known, she would tell us right away so we didn't waste our precious time on the weekends. When we did go to see houses (we saw probably 10-12), it was like she had X-ray vision. Her attention to detail astounded me and I learned so much just by talking to her during showings. She took the time to explain complicated things in simple terms so that even a first time home buyer could make sense of complicated matters including radon levels, signs of water damage, the disadvantages of overhead power lines, window pricing, how taxes are done in IL (I had no idea IL paid Taxes in Arrears - or even what that meant at the beginning of this process), and so many other things. Secondly, We had SO many questions for her. My wife and I would be up talking about the houses we saw that day and whether or not we would want to put an offer in with all of the knowledge we had. We would frequently call or text Lisa well past business hours which we felt bad for, but in this market we had to act fast... I think Lisa knew this because her average response time was about 15 seconds before we had the answer to any of our questions. I could not be more grateful for her beyond positive attitude, superb response time, and general demeanor. I would recommend that everybody in the continental United States use Lisa Koonce as their agent. I was honestly pretty scared at the beginning of this process, but Lisa made it fun, and I always felt like I had the necessary information to set up my family for a good life. She even went as far to check the interest rates and helped us lock in an interest rate with our mortgage company that will save us thousands of dollars a year...There is not an end to the amount of good things I have to say about Lisa. If you are a first time home buyer, or a skilled house flipper, you would benefit from being in her company. Thank you for everything you have done for us Lisa, we appreciate you so much and are thankful for the opportunity to have worked with you."
-ERIC MCLEAN, AURORA
"We could not say enough good things about Lisa Koonce! She really went above and beyond! As first time homebuyers Lisa helped guide us through every step of the way, she explained every part of the process in detail and answered any questions that we had at any hour of the day in a timely manner! She made this stressful process so enjoyable and easy! We will definitely use Lisa again and would recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor! I was never worried during the process because I really felt like I could trust Lisa! She was an amazing listener while also giving her knowledgeable advice at the right times! She was the positivity I needed during a competitive market and we truly are thankful to have had her as our realtor ."
"This was my 7th (& hopefully FINAL move) and Lisa was by far the BEST agent I’ve ever worked with! She is on top of it all-from preparation before our first meeting, to educating me and equipping me with the necessary information, to allow me to make my own decision after hearing her recommendations, thru preparing my house, to helping provide vendors for needed repairs that did fantastic prompt work, to her strategy for listing, and even answering texts/pics along the way to ease my mind and confirm what I was doing looked good. She was a friend when I needed her to be, an agent with solid info and recommendations when she needed to be, and she delivered strong results on my sale that were well above what I hoped for! I sold in a few hours with 7 offers all above asking! Lisa is the best there is-period! "
-DAWN TROJAN, PLAINFIELD
"Lisa Koonce did an outstanding job with my house and with me. She made suggestions to present my house in the best way. She edited my furniture and accessories, but never suggested “staging”. I appreciated that. I believe that Lisa was a good fit for me. She has been in the business for 20 years or more, but is young enough to appreciate and use the digital world in her marketing. Selling real estate has changed a lot since I last sold a home and I did not want a realtor who was stuck in the past with old techniques. Lisa also understood the emotional part of selling a family home too. It is more than a business transaction. In short, she was great."
-KAY SLOCUMB, NAPERVILLE
"For a first time homeowner, Lisa made the process very smooth and quick for me. She was there every step of the way and answered any of my questions."-TREVIS, PLAINFIELD
"We moved from New Jersey to St Charles. Lisa was extremely helpful through the entire buying process! We will be using her again when we move next!"
-CARRIE RADIGAN, ST. CHARLES
"Lisa has been in the game for so long that the amount of knowledge she knows about pretty much every city is unbelievable! This was such a big help with deciding if the area was safe for me as a young female. Not only was she confident with the communities, she was ready for any question to be asked and answered right there about the property. As I often went to showings alone, she brought her own knowledge and suggestions when helping me decide. Lisa was great! Thank you!
-SAVANNAH, OAK PARK
"Many co-workers have used Lisa in the past and highly recommended her.
Lisa is ABSOTULEY FANTASTIC. Best realtor we have ever
had. We have purchased and sold 7 homes in the last 21 years
and she is by far the best relator we have had the pleasure to
work with. Very professional and met all of our needs.
Very complicated purchase due to my wife being unable to be in
Chicago for the purchase.
Lisa delivered across the board! She is a pleasure to
work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone"-KEN, NAPERVILLE
"Lisa from day one came in and her priority was to understand what we needed and who we are. From that very first conversation, Lisa drove to ensure that not only mine but my wife was listened to in regards to those needs. As we were relocating from another state, i had to do most of the house hunting. Lisa made it a point to ensure that she understood what my wife wanted and ensured that I was looking at it from her perspective. She arranged video calls to show houses when she couldn't come down. I am pretty sure Lisa knows more about what my wife wanted and didn't want than I did. We had a lot of struggles this time around trying to find a home and Lisa ensured we never gave up on the house or each other. Every hurdle that we came across, Lisa helped us navigate through it. She was on the phone with lawyers, mortgage company and anyone she needed to get us over the finish line and into our new home and the next chapter in our lives. Through this journey we didn't have a realtor; we had a friend, a member of our family that was not going to allow us to fail and ensure we found the house that wanted, not just the one that we needed. She truly set the bar high for anyone that even thinks about trying to compete for our future business. In my opinion, the only choice will be
"Excellent service by far!!!
Lisa is an expert in her field. Lisa is extremely knowledgeable, courteous, personable, and highly
experienced. You can't go wrong with Lisa.. She cares and pays attention to detail. She knows the market and area well. I was completely satisfied with her services from timeline of sale, and the consistent updates and flow of information. Lisa was always accessible when needed and went above and beyond. I've had the pleasure of working with Lisa and finding my needs in a timely fashion. Lisa really cares, your not just a name or individual. It's as if your family. I highly recommend Lisa's services!"
-BARRY BRAGTON, BOLINGBROOK
"Lisa has helped me sell a home previously. She did a great job, so I went back again.
She made the whole process effortless on my part, and took care of all my questions and needs. I would certain retain Lisa again if I sell in the future."
-GERALD MARCUS, AURORA
"Lisa was instrumental in getting our home sold quickly. She told us what we needed to do to make the interior picture-worthy, and ready for buyer viewing. The process was painless and we were able to get the property sold inside of 4 weeks. Thanks, Lisa."
"Lisa Koonce was so easy to work with. She was along side me the entire way. When I was overwhelmed, she was there to help and make it easy. She shared in my excitement and felt like a friend. Not just my realtor. I'd recommend her time and time again to anyone needing a wonderful realtor. She has fantastic and timely communication, great attention to detail, very knowledgeable and made everything that much easier."
"Once we decided we were selling our home, Lisa Koonce was able to help us get it on the market quickly. Once it was on the market, she able to help us get it sold within 2 days! Lisa was always available whenever we needed her. She is very knowledgeable, trustworthy, professional and proactive. She cared about us and I felt like we were her top priority! "-SHARLA & JAMISON MUELLER, AURORA
"We would use Lisa again and will recommend her to friends who are looking for a good realtor! She was a gem!"-RUTH ANN GORUP, NAPERVILLE
"We interviewed Lisa after a fellow UPS employee highly recommended her. I thought choosing the right agent would be a difficult decision for my husband and me for multiple reasons: I am a real estate agent myself, my husband and I have very different personality styles and perspectives about the home buying process, as well as a different list of priorities when selecting the right home. Lisa put my mind at ease on the first call and proved throughout the entire process how invaluable a great real estate agent is, not only in helping us select a home but also by providing excellent representation during a challenging escrow process.-JENAE & SCOTT KARR, ST. CHARLES
Lisa was the epitome of first-class customer service, and she upheld the highest level of professionalism throughout our home buying experience.
We couldn't have asked for better representation during our real estate transaction. Lisa was able to provide excellent area knowledge, advise and work through our personal expectations during the home selection process, was highly effective in negotiating a successful contract, and continued to exceed our expectations throughout the entire process! We will certainly recommend her to everyone we know that needs to buy or sell in the Chicago area!"
"When we were looking for a house to buy 14 years ago, I will never forget how attentive, caring and hard working Lisa was to find me the right property. She listened to my needs, wants and even picked up on certain cues that allowed her to preview houses ahead of our appointments. She picked me up each night from work, took me around and even feeding me after a long day of working and viewing properties. Lisa understood my need to find the right neighborhood to raise our son and make a comfortable home so far away from family and friends. I believe Lisa earned every penny of her commission during that sale and she proved through selling that property 14 years later, that she was a talented and professional Real Estate Agent. In a world of internet shopping, the personal touch that is required on purchasing a house in an unfamiliar area is exactly what Lisa provides. Highly recommend her to other clients!"-ALLYSON & SCOTT STAVRON, AURORA
"We chose Lisa Koonce as our realtor because we truly felt she was the best choice. Her knowledge of both the sales value of our home and the current market were the deciding factors.-PAM MOSKALUK, NAPERVILLE
Lisa was very responsive and kept in close contact with us throughout the process. During negotiations with the buyer she was honest she got good advice and represented our interests.
We would highly recommend Lisa Koonce. She represented our best interests in all aspects of the sale of our home. We relied heavily on her advice throughout and appreciated her knowledge & professionalism. Lisa went above and beyond!"
"Could not have had a better agent!"-DAWN LIVORSI, SCHAUMBURG & OAK PARK
"We have worked with Lisa on other property purchases/sales in Naperville. Lisa is very professional and knows the market. She is always available and quickly responds to any questions or concerns.-MARK & MARY KAY ZONCA, NAPERVILLE
Lisa went above and beyond to help us sell our home during challenging times with the pandemic. She was very thorough and explained the process - which eased our worries of trying to sell our home during these difficult times of social distancing. "
"Lisa was so incredible. She understood our needs and found us a great house. She was constantly protecting our interest on items that would come up and she made sure that we got everything we were entitled to.We have been relocated several times and Lisa is by far the best agent that we have dealt with. She is very experienced with the relo process and knows everything there is to know about buying and selling a home. I was not available to come to the final walkthrough and she represented me and made sure to create a detailed punch list for the builder and followed up to make sure everything was completed. She even let us have our tv delivered to her house and had to deal with it taking up space for weeks as well as going to my house to intercept deliveries and put them in the garage for us before we could physically get to IL. We have already given her a referral and will continue to do so as my husband's coworkers get relocated."-WENDY & JOEL, PLAINFIELD
Lisa was so great and was always quick to respond when we had any questions. She went above and beyond to help us with our purchase from the very first house we found online and asked her about. We were out of state in quarantine and she immediately drove to the house and facetimed us.
"Lisa is a very good communicator. Having confidence in her judgement and ability to communicate that judgement was essential in selecting her for this transaction.Again, it was a pleasure working with Lisa. She made the entire experience extremely easy from the time we began the process even beyond the closing. Although this was a second residence, she treated it as if my family was her greatest concern. I never had to step outside of my normal routine to get this deal completed because Lisa took care of everything.
The timeliness of information/updates on the property and condition of the market was exceptional. In every instance, I did not have to wonder how things were going or what the next several weeks forward looked like. She was proactive with information and accessible for questions and responses.
Lisa kept current with the other properties in the area. Due to the Pandemic, the market changed from the beginning of this sale until the end. She was very good at reading the condition of the market, keeping me informed of that condition and offering suggestions on how to continually navigate the environment. She made it easy for me to make decisions throughout the process.
I would recommend her to anyone, without question because the manner in which she does business should transcend any of my friends or family if they needed a realtor."-STAN DEANS, CHICAGO
"Lisa has become like a family member. She is very knowledgeable with all aspects of looking for a home. We’ve worked with her since our 1st move to Chicago in 2008 & there was no doubt that she would be our permanent realtor for the Chicago area. We have now worked with her multiple times. She is excellent at her job and as far as I’m concerned, the best!-AREATHA HILL, NAPERVILLE
Lisa’s knowledge exceeds in excellence of all of these categories. We have total trust in her.
Lisa is so great at knowing what we liked & disliked in a home. She’s awesome!"
"Lisa did an outstanding job supporting all of our needs throughout the entire process of our move. She's very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure that we informed and well represented. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone."-MARVIN HILL, NAPERVILLE
"Lisa did a phenomenal job at helping us understand the selling process and walking us through a strategy based on our needs. I was referred to Lisa by a work colleague and would highly recommend Lisa to anyone interested in working with a top real-estate agent!-SETH D'ADDABBO, VOLO
I couldn’t be happier with the service Lisa provided. She was an invaluable resource that exceeded all of our expectations. Lisa made the process very easy and much less stressful! Thanks Lisa!"
"I can not say enough good things about Lisa!! My fiance had received a promotion for a position based out of the Chicago area. Not only were we buying a home for the first time, we were buying our first home in an area where we knew NOTHING about. Buying a house in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic presented additional challenges throughout our buying process. We closed on our property Aug 12th and moved in Aug 22nd & Lisa Koonce went above & beyond to check up on things for us while we were still in KC - we were having the inside of our house painted before moving in & Lisa went over & made everything looked looked nice without us even having to ask.... I mean seriously, I had never worked with a realtor / broker before but Lisa Koonce exceeded all of my expectations. Even now that we are moved in I know I could reach out to Lisa for any of my questions regardless if they are related to our house. She truly was a huge part of our buying & moving process!"-GABBY CLARK, NAPERVILLE
"Lisa is phenomenal. She is knowledgeable, professional, and yet, personable. She has an engaging personality and makes the daunting task of buying and selling real estate, more enjoyable. She is honest and has integrity. I have trusted her for the purchase of three homes and the sale of two. I can’t say enough about Lisa."-MELISSA, LOMBARD
"Lisa was absolutely amazing!! From the moment we met Lisa you could tell she really knows what she's doing and has great knowledge about all of the areas we looked at. She quickly learned our tastes and styles, and knew exactly which houses to take us to and which to not. Being a first time homebuyer, the process can be scary and very overwhelming, and Lisa was so helpful in guiding us every step of the way and making sure we were comfortable. She had all of the answers to every question we had for her and was super easy to reach. She answered our texts/calls almost immediately every time. Thanks so much for helping us find our dream home, Lisa!! You're the best!"-HEATHER, HOFFMAN ESTATES
"I first met Lisa when I was looking to buy a home in 2016. She was beyond knowledgeable, honest, and straightforward with me throughout the buying process. This was exactly what I needed, especially since it was my first time purchasing a home. I could not have asked for a better experience with a realtor! Then came time to sell that home and my experience with her only got better ! Working with Lisa a second time, this time to sell my place, really gave me an appreciation for how hard she works and how well she does her job. She was always available to answer any questions I had and went above and beyond to check in with me to make sure I was comfortable with every step of the process. I really felt like she was looking out for me in both the buying and selling of my property and I am so grateful that I was able to work with her! "-JENNIFER, NAPERVILLE
"We both bought and sold our home with Lisa. Each time she went above and beyond on a daily basis to be responsive to our constant questions, helpful in a time of real stress for us, and unbelievably present for any and all of our needs during this process.-ELIZABETH LI, FOREST PARK
Lisa is a one in a million agent. She is an extension of your family during the home buying and selling process, constantly available, approachable, and knowledgeable. We couldn't have done it without her."
"Lisa worked quickly for us to be able to close by our desired date and are very grateful for it! "-ANGIE, STREAMWOOD
"I have used Lisa Koonce's services to both purchase and sale my property in Plainfield. Lisa was phenomenal with her local knowledge, guidance and direction about the home purchase and selling process, communication, and follow up. Most importantly, Lisa listened to the needs and desires of me and my wife and went above and beyond to satisfy them. She was not operating on her own agenda but truly was operating to satisfy our needs and desires. Lisa epitomizes a "customer focused" attitude and work ethic. Lisa was extremely trust worthy and knowledge of the local market is unmatched. I was extremely impressed in every interaction with Lisa and she made both the home buying and selling process very simple and easy.Lisa was excellent across the board in each of these areas. I would like to highlight the level of professionalism and timely communications in my dealings with Lisa. Every question or concerns I had she was always available to answer and put me at ease. She always communicated to make sure I understood and didn't mind repeating information if I didn't understand initially. We communicated very often and she was very collaborative and always available to meet our needs.
I can't say enough about Lisa Koonce and the service she provides. I unfortunately had to move from the Naperville area but I will certainly recommend any future employees, friends, or family that move to the Naperville area to use Lisa Koonce!"-CHARLES & SHARICE JESSUP, PLAINFIELD
