It was an absolute pleasure to have Candace as our agent this past fall when we bought our first condo in Chicago. In a season where properties were coming on and off the market quickly, Candace’s incredible responsiveness and guidance led us to our dream home. As first-time buyers, she went above and beyond to ensure we were informed of every detail each step of the way – it was important to us to work with someone who we could feel comfortable with asking every question that came to mind, and Candace made us feel so at-ease. She took the time to make sure we understood every decision we needed to make. Even though many warned us that the condo-buying process could be stressful, Candace made it so enjoyable! From our first phone conversation with her, to her bringing donuts to inspection day and celebrating with us as she handed over the keys, Candace was equal parts patient teacher, fierce negotiator and encouraging cheerleader. We couldn’t recommend working with Candace and Melanie Everett & Company more! — Spencer & Hattie
Working with was Maggie was a delight. We were first time buyers and her down to earth nature made us feel so relaxed and confident through the whole process. She never put any pressure on us and was incredibly responsive to our billions of questions, even after closing! After being on the market for years (literally), we found our perfect home and had an offer accepted in only a couple weeks! — Nick & Sara S.
I was able to work with Maggie from Melanie Everett and Co. and she was fantastic. She was flexible and available when needed for my many questions about what needs to be done. She helped give me advice for preparing my property to sell and provided quality market data to help me determine listing price. I also felt like my recommendations were heard and she was working with me, which was encouraging. We listed and had an open house within a week with three offers on the table. It was a pleasant experience and I absolutely recommend Maggie and M&Co. for your real estate needs! — Mike S.
Candace was an absolute pleasure to work with. As first time home buyers, we were excited to start the process but a bit overwhelmed with all of the details. From our initial consultation with Candace, she made the process from start to finish as easy and painless as it could have been. Candace was extremely knowledgable, answering all of our questions and provided great feedback on general home-buying details. She was communicative and coordinated everything effortlessly. Candace initiated all of the details and scheduled our showing with extremely quick turn-around. Candace has a great list of referrals that we also used which elevated our experience even more. Lastly, Candace was professional and results driven. In the end, we ended up closing on a condo (one that checked off all our boxes) and we have Candace to thank for that! — John & Cody C.
While relaxing on our honeymoon, my husband and I decided we should take advantage of the 2020 low interest rates and buy our first home. Knowing of Melanie’s great reputation, we both immediately agreed that, if we were so fortunate, we would entrust her with finding the perfect place for us. Amongst the ever-changing COVID landscape, our evolving preferences/budget and a fast-pace seller’s market, Melanie quickly became our emotional counselor and greatest advocate. When I would send her emails asking to see a property ASAP, she would have a showing for us that night or the following day, which we didn’t even realize was possible. After showings, we would debrief and review our pros and cons while also getting her professional opinion, which helped us weed out any properties that weren’t “the one.” We can’t say enough great things about her: she was an answer to our prayers and a miracle worker in many ways. Most of all, she was a friend during a pivotal time, and helped us purchase the condo of our dreams. There are a million reasons why she and her team have 5-star reviews—we look forward to seeing them continue to take over Chicago! — Rick & Alyssa P.
Candace was a guiding light in an otherwise unknown (and sometimes stressful) process. We began working with Candace, as first-time home buyers, a few months before we actually scheduled our first showing. Candace was extremely responsive and helpful. She was always available to schedule showings, to answer our questions and to provide objective and helpful advice and opinions throughout the entire process (searching for a home, financing a home and closing on a home). She was incredibly pleasant to work with and made the process enjoyable. We cannot recommend Candace enough – she is an expert real estate agent who knows the process and the Chicago real estate market incredibly well. — Tasha S. & Matt M.
