"I 100% recommend Laurie!"
"I met Laurie in my South Loop neighborhood and I knew immediately I wanted her as my Realtor. Being a first time home buyer, I wanted someone I could trust and wouldn't push me into anything. Laurie really cared; she made herself very available to go on showing and was always sending me new listings. She understood my taste, my budget, and my "must haves". She has good connections in the industry and recommended a great broker, attorney and inspector (but never pushed anything on me). Laurie was able to explain each step of the process and was extremely patient and understanding at every turn. Laurie could also be very assertive to other realtors and worked hard to make sure my concerns were addressed. On the day of my closing I walked away with a beautiful condo, gifts from Laurie, and a friend!
I 100% recommend Laurie!"

"Laurie is an amazing, hard working and reliable Realtor!"
"Laurie is an amazing, hard working and reliable realtor! I wish I could give her more than 5 stars.
Our previous realtor was terrible--after we fired him, we hired Laurie and she was fantastic! We moved out of state, and were trying to sell or lease our house in Illinois. Our previous realtor had our house on the market for 5 months during peak season without even one promising prospect. We hired Laurie and had our house leased ABOVE asking price within 3 weeks--we signed the papers on Christmas Eve!!
Laurie went above and beyond more times than I can mention, from helping us get our home in show ready condition, to truly finding the best, most reliable tenants for our home. I HIGHLY recommend Laurie Jacobs to anyone in the Chicago area who wants a reliable, honest, hard working and competent realtor."

"She is simply incredible."
"When I first moved to Chicago, I had plans of renting for 1-2 years while scoping out the best areas to purchase a condo. My first course of action was to hop on Craigslist and check out apartments for rent. I went to several showings with multiple agents and it was blatantly obvious they were all after a quick paycheck. I don't blame them for being so, I'm just stating the nature of the business.
That's when I came across Laurie. After discussing wants/needs in a rental unit, it was evident she was actually listening to my likes/dislikes while providing the information of market realities. She spent a couple of weeks guiding me towards what was best.
When it came time to purchase a year later, I knew I had already met the right agent to help me buy a condo. I remembered how genuine and hard-working she was, and that was just from the rental search. Throughout the buying process, I was not disappointed. (And let me add -- my family is NOT a typical client. She held our hand and walked us through a long, 8 month searching+buying process.) She is simply incredible.
In summary, I would STRONGLY recommend Laurie to anyone in the market for a realtor (In fact, I've already recommended my girlfriend and a couple of friends families). She absolutely treats her clients like a family member. 100% genuine human being. It's very cliche, I know, but there is no doubt she gets satisfaction from her clients making the best decisions."

"She worked so hard to find me the perfect place."
"I got a call from a realtor within hours after I submitted my info the the website. Laurie Jacobs was the realtor assigned to help me and my gosh is she wonderful. She's friendly, engaging, and very quickly was able to find places for me to see and and she is extremely helpful. She worked so hard to find me the perfect place, and she came through for me in a way that I can't express how grateful I am! I had very tight deadlines on moving and she continued to look for me day and night and hasn't stopped until my name was approved by the seller. I still can't believe how amazing the place is she found on such short notice. And when we learned that others were interested in the unit, she sprang into action and worked so quickly for me."

"She's caring, catering to your needs and brings people together."
"Laurie helped us purchase a place for my son who's living in Chicago. Working with a family of four adults living in 3 countries, she gave us ample time to work through concerns/emotional hurdles. She would provide us the information and was available to help with all the issues. This went on for long eight months. We never felt that the process was being hurried. In the end, we purchased the place what was reasonable for our budget/location. Looking back, eight months didn't seem long(for us) and we felt that she brought us ALL together. She's Caring, Catering to your needs and brings people together. Thanks Laurie..."

"Thanks so much for making our dreams come true!"
We moved this weekend into our new home and I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how much we appreciated your expert service and experience in helping us find the “perfect” place. This being my first time purchasing a home… was quite unnerving for us… but your instincts, knowledge and professionalism was so instrumental in getting us to the end result. We greatly appreciated, since you knew for me personally that I needed to move out as quickly as possible since my only child died from brain cancer in the former apartment we shared and the holidays where fast approaching. You understood my urgency.
In record time…we completed the close in less than a month and since I was so unfamiliar with the process you walked us through every step to completion.
I hope you will feel free to use us for any future reference you may need. I highly recommend your services.
Again thanks so much for making my/our dream come true!
Julie Bellis & Jimmy Randall"
