Erica McClain - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

I chose Erica because I had known of her work for many years in the town we both live in.

From the very beginning she was very attentive to my desire to sell my home. She explained every step of the selling process in a manner that I would understand, clarifying real estate jargon as needed. She was available at all hours should a question or concern arise from me, never making me feel as if I were a burden to her. She is very akin as to what the buying/selling market is doing from week to week, or even sooner than that at times. Overall, she is a very professional and knowledgeable participant in the field of real estate.

Highly effective and professional realtor.

Erica was instrumental in the successful marketing of our home. She helped me set a realistic market price, made suggestions as to what elements of the house should be addressed before listing (and which should be ignored), communicated regularly with both buyer and broker feedback, gave me insight on local ordinances and practices that would impact the listing and ultimate sale, recommended a negotiating strategy on offers received, and smoothed the path to a successful transaction. Her knowledge and history in the near Northwest suburbs make her a true asset. Highly recommended - would definitely use her services again.

We were happy to work with Erica again.

I knew that selling a house and moving across the country was going to be a stressful event. When choosing an agent to sell our house, it made sense to choose Erica. Nineteen years ago she had sold us the house that we were now trying to sell. We knew she was someone we could trust and she was reassuring through the whole process.
