Testimonials

Kelly was an exceptional agent! She is an expert on the Northshore suburbs, helping our family determine which area was the best fit for our personal needs. Kelly assisted through the entire buying/selling process, going above and beyond to ensure we found the perfect house. Many times, she stepped in and handled situations, so not to impact a working families’ schedule. Kelly is the most committed agent we have ever seen and highly recommended to help anyone find the perfect house. - A.M. & D.M. - $800,000 Highland Park Buyer

We loved working with Kelly. She is trustworthy, honest, and enjoyable to be around. She is responsive and always has a positive attitude which is always helpful in a stressful situation like home buying and selling. She also notices all of the little things in a house that potential homeowners may not notice while viewing houses. She is extremely knowledgeable about real estate and we always felt taken care of as her clients. M.D. & T.D. - $950,000 Northbrook Buyer and Seller 

Kelly was simply outstanding!  From being professional to ensuring our family's needs were met, she worked very closely with us on all aspects of the deal. She was patient, enabled us to arrive at our decision on our own time, we didn't feel pushed nor did we feel for once that she was in a rush to close the deal.  Our negotiations with the seller were not easy, yet Kelly worked tirelessly with the seller's agent, their lawyers and our team (banker, lawyer, architect..) to ensure we felt comfortable moving forward.  She supported our entire team by engaging with them constantly and in a timely manner.   All of which enabled us to move fast and close within a month.  We were floored by her dedication!  Thank you Kelly for making this a great experience for our family. - P.B. & C.B. - $850,000 Lake Forest Buyer 

As a resident of Lake Forest for over 40 years, I knew I had many great choices for hiring a seasoned broker when it came time to sell my much loved home in the Northmoor/South Park neighborhood. I am SO glad I chose Kelly...she is the best! - B.W. - $415,000 Lake Forest Seller 

I was working with Kelly on another search for my primary residence when I found a lake home that she went out of her way logistically and professionally to help me acquire!! Kelly is exactly who you want to be partnered with when managing the oftentimes tumultuous path of any real estate  transaction -- either on the buying or selling side. Kelly's demeanor projects a calm professional that closes and that's exactly what you want! - P.W. - $700,000 Vacation Lake Home Buyer 

When my wife and I started looking for our first home we were apprehensive since we are both in sales. We figured it would be a grueling process but nothing could be further from the truth. Yes we had to look at a ton of homes but we had particular tastes and that’s just the process. After speaking  with several realtors we just didn’t have a comfort level until we met Kelly. She has a skill set that goes well beyond her field, and that knowledge was applied time and again throughout the process. Needless to say, she put up with all of our quirks, questions and endless appointments till we found our new home. If you want the process to go smooth, don’t waste your time working with anyone else. - B.D. & L.D. - $550,000 Northbrook Buyers 

If you're looking to hire an agent to sell or buy a new home, look no further! My husband and I worked with Kelly Rynes to find a house that we would call our home in a quiet neighborhood and ideal location to work. We had a short time frame to do this in as we had sold our existing home and looking to downsize fairly quickly. We didn't have much hope that this would be doable, but it worked out beautifully! In our interaction, we found Kelly to be very professional, responsive, respectful, understanding of our needs, and observant to the smallest detail. We truly felt that she worked for us. Thanks to her expertise and responsiveness, we were able to find our ideal house just in time. We could not have asked for a better agent to work with and are very pleased! - C.P. & M.P. - $650,000 Mettawa Buyer 

Kelly helped us with the sale of my 95 year old mothers house.  She had excellent knowledge of the area, market, and pricing. She was organized, honest, and always responsive. She was professional and very considerate of the family dynamic that comes along with selling a "family" home. She made the whole process quick and easy. The house was under contract within a few days because she had been proactive and done a lot of pre-marketing. We couldn't be happier. My husband and I plan on selling our house within the year so that we can retire to Lake Geneva and will use her again. We are secretly hoping that she can also do commercial because within the next few years we will be selling our large commercial building near the Glen in Glenview. - B.L.  - $350,000 Evanston Seller 

Kelly does an excellent job of managing the sale. She was well prepared on the strategic issues (pricing), handled the unexpected (post-contact deal changes) and kept me updated on the process week-to-week. I'd highly recommend working with Kelly on the buyer or seller side. - G.T. - $205,000 Northfield Seller 

Our experience with Kelly could not have been better.  She sold our family family house in beautiful Lake Forest.  Kelly was understanding, patient, respectful, and had a great sense of humor.  She was very professional, knowledgable, and realistic.  She knew the market well, we were able to sell the house quickly.  I would highly recommend her.  She was a pleasure to work with. - N.M. - $550,000 Lake Forest Seller 

My wife and I were buying a home for the first time.  Kelly came highly recommended, and after our experience, it was obvious why her reputation proceeded her.  Kelly knows the market and every neighborhood. Kelly is enjoyable, patient, professional, and a true advocate for her clients.  This was our fist purchase and we had questions, lots of them!  She was always honest, accommodating, and extremely responsive throughout the entire process.  We had some curve balls from our initial lender and from the seller towards the finalizing of the sale.  She handled them deftly, ensuring all stakeholders were on track for a successful close.  I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great experience for buying or selling.  Thanks again, Kelly! - J.G. - $275,000 Libertyville Buyer
