Helen's personal style and consistent, transparent communication was well beyond my expectations. Helen's entire team truly made me feel as if we were her sole focus when I know the reality is she multi tasks well and is able to give all clients individual attention and reassurance. The sale of my home occurred during a very difficult time in life and the real estate market decline added to an already stressful situation. I am beyond grateful that it was Helen and her team who carried us through the roller coaster known as our house sale. Without her I am more than sure we would not have sold it and potentially ended up in foreclosure. Helen is exactly what I needed during negotiations. She never made me feel stupid about the process nor did she do anything but lend an ear during a time of strife. Without question, I would recommend and use her services again. Less ... More

Helen, I should have responded sooner but my feet haven't touched the ground since the good news on the sale of my house. You lived up to all and more than my expectations with the way you?ve handled everything. I appreciate the double emails to Sally and me. My friends celebrated with me at Maggiano?s on Friday and we were all amazed at the quick sale and at the listing price! I thank you as does my family.

Helen was great during the whole sale process. Every time I would call she would pick up ready to talk about anything. I have never experienced this level of service from a real estate agent. Helen is also very honest, she knows what needs to get done to sell a home. Our home was sold after 8 days of being on the market, even with being an interior town home unit which are not in high demand right now. Want your home SOLD? Talk to Helen. Thanks Helen!

Helen is the consummate professional, working tirelessly for her customers, offering objective advice, available 24/7, and with an extensive knowledge of the real estate market. Helen's staff is equally attentive; well-trained in customer service. We feel we were updated on the sale of our home extremely well. You name it--phone calls, texting, emailing, all modes of communication used to keep us up-to-the minute. Also, our property was marketed excellent. We received two offers in 2 days--need I say more? Helen is "the best of the best", combining outstanding knowledge of the real estate market, fantastic instincts about negotiation strategy, and an ever-present professional demeanor. Helen obviously enjoys what she does and was a pleasure to work with from the moment we met her until closing. Helen has our highest recommendations! Less ... More

Helen was very knowledgeable, professional and a joy to work with on my home sale. Also, the team kept me informed each step of the way. They were available to answer questions and I was never asked to wait on hold. Great response time. They would call or text (which I think is great) with information. Furthermore, they marketed my property immediately and we had showings immediately. I was sent the links to the online marketing. Very strong marketing skills on behalf of Helen and her team. We are very happy with the results we received. We will use Helen Oliveri next time! Less ... More

Our experience in working with Helen Oliveri was excellent. She has great knowledge of the local market, great advice on every aspect of the transaction and great service. She and her team were a huge help. The team was always there any time we had a question, wanted to see a house or needed some assistance. We got updates quickly on every issue. Our property was marketed excellent. We had the right price and were visible to anyone in the market which resulted in a lot of showings. Our experience was terrific and I'll recommend Helen to every buyer or seller I know. We were very pleased with the whole process. We both work a lot of hours and Helen and her team took care of everything. When we had questions she and her team had answers. She's pulled together a great group of professionals and I will definitely work with her again if we decide to buy or sell another property. Less ... More

Helen is very professional, and has a warm personality. Also, her team did a good job. Helen is a great communicator. We emailed, texted, and used the cell phone frequently. Helen used all the social media for marketing. I feel Helen did a great professional job selling our home and keeping the deal together. Helen became a friend of ours during this sales process. She always puts the customer first and understands relationship building. Helen follows the market closely and provides current honest market evaluation and comparison data. She works well with other brokers and attorneys. I would highly recommend her for future real estate business. Less ... More

Helen is a marketing genius. I never expected the response I received on my house. She also answered all my questions and made a stressful experience easy. My experience with the team was terrific.

Helen is very professional, honest, and her experience shows. Also, her team was very courteous and helpful. I felt that whoever I was speaking with was aware of the property and could help answer my questions. If not, they were quick to find Helen and connect me with her or get my questions answered. I was very impressed with the number of online and print resources created quickly in order to market the house in a timely manner. I also liked the updates of views from the various websites and the online portal so I could track showings and feedback. I'm sure your internal networking also did a lot for moving this property quickly. It was evident in the number of showings that people were seeing the information! Thank you for all your help.

We could tell Helen was a busy woman, but she always made time for us when we needed to talk with her. Her whole team was considerate, up-to-date and professional. The photos were excellent and the website coverage (a key) was excellent. They were professional, competent...with a personal touch! Helen and her team have perfected the art of selling a home. From the moment she introduced herself and her marketing plan, we felt confident Helen would sell our townhouse, and she did not disappoint. We received an offer after the second showing. Thank you, Helen and team. We're grateful to have been guided by your expertise. Less ... More

Selling your home is stressful but not with Helen. She will guide you completely through the process. Also, working with the team was excellent. The team will keep you updated and help you with any questions or concerns along the way. I felt my home was marketed excellent. Honest and effective marketing. We were interested in selling our home not just listing it.

Helen is an expert at marketing your home and takes full advantage of every marketing channel available. She is responsive and knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. The Helen Oliveri Team is a well oiled machine focused on meeting your needs. They were always quick to respond and make sure that we were aware of whatever was going on in the market and specifically regarding the sale of our home. They gave us weekly updates and a steady stream of potential buyers. They really pull out all the stops to get your home sold. We really appreciated the professionalism of the team and, even when we got cold feet and were in a panic, they talked us off the ledge. The team took us through the sale of one home and the purchase of a new home and we couldn't be happier. Well done Helen Oliveri Team!!! Less ... More

Helen knows the real estate marketplace for our area and priced our home at a competitive price for the home to sell quickly. Helen's team was experienced throughout the process both on the marketing side and in working with the legal team assigned regarding the sale. Any questions that I had during the sales process process were answered in a timely manner. We had a number of showings on the property due to signs, and the internet postings that Helen provided.

Helen was great! She is a very motivated and knowledgeable professional, and has a sincere interest in helping her clients. She really knows the area, and sets realistic expectations. I can't say enough about the team as a whole. Everyone I dealt with was very courteous and responsive, as though I were the only client. Communication is key for me, especially following a bad experience with another realtor several years ago. This was not an issue for Helen and her team, as I was continually informed on the status of our listing with detailed email and telephone updates. I also received timely analytics on the web activity of participating listing sites, and helpful feedback following scheduled showings. Our property was appropriately valued throughout the sales term given the conditions of the market along the way. The printed brochures and Internet coverage were great. The marketing materials did a fantastic job of showcasing the property. Overall, the marketing was first rate. We definitely made the right decision to use Helen and her team to sell our home, for all the reasons mentioned above and more. Less ... More

Our entire experience with Helen was amazing. Helen works extremely hard for her clients. There are a lot of moving parts with a sale of a home. EVERY step was clearly communicated. From showings, contract offer, negotiations, attorney review, inspections, closing documents, EVERYTHING was handled professionally and smoothly. When it came time to sell our home, we had ZERO hesitations on who we would pick to sell our home. Helen (and her team) is simply the best. We watched the marketplace during our 7 years of ownership. Helen knows the local market better than anyone and this is one of the many reasons she is #1 in sales. Helen did not just take our "listing". She made sure we knew all the expectations of this emotional decision. Moving is stressful and we had complete comfort in knowing all along we had the BEST and most professional person to handle our real estate process. We are talking your HOME here, why on earth would you settle for 2nd best when it comes to selling it? Less ... More

The sale of our house was tricky at best. I had been in the house for 28 years, so I had no idea of the market or what to expect of the process. Your honesty and humor kept heads clear and things light. Even with the purchase and closing of your own home, you returned every call within minutes so that we could ask questions and in most cases, got us the answers the same day. You told us what the marketing plan was going to be and you did everything you said you would. I?ve been in sales most of my adult life and must say that I?ve never run into a team such as yourselves. The lines of responsibility were very clear between the two of you making it easy for us and I to feel reassured that you were ALWAYS on top of things. We had made the mistake of first signing with another team?..their claims being much the same as yours. What we learned was claims are one thing, but living up to them is another thing altogether. That experience made us even more ?gun shy? of your claims of service and attention. You lived up to and went beyond every claim. Less ... More

Helen?s team gave me status reports and updates very frequently. I feel my home in Glenview was marketed excellent and the property sold so quickly. I rate my experience with Helen Oliveri and The Helen Oliveri Team just outstanding. At the end of the day, our house had been on the market for a year with a different agent and had not been sold.

My sale was not your average sale. I had a number of extenuating circumstances that made my deal difficult. Helen dealt with those circumstances and brought the deal to a successful close. I locked myself out of my house on two occasions and Helen's team was able to "beam" a code to the lock box and on a real time basis get me access. My overall experience with Helen Oliveri and the Helen Oliveri Team was excellent. We sold at 94% of the asking price.

Helen was very personable and passionate about wanting to work with us. We were exceedingly happy that our home sold so quickly when all other houses in our neighborhood (NOT being offered by Helen!) have been on the market for months, some for well over a year. Helen and her team are real "go-getters" and seemed to want the house to sell as much as we did. We GREATLY APPRECIATE all of your combined efforts!

Helen and her team are the epitome of professionalism, organization, and efficiency. In the current market, having 35 showings in 10 days and going under contract after 18 days speaks for itself.

My house had been on the market off and on for over two years with two different agents of one of the big area firms.  The results: open houses where one person came, regular recommendations to lower the price (which they guided me to set in the first place), showings where I got no feedback.   I finally fired them and hired Helen.  The first thing she told me is - this is the price you need to be at if you want to sell the house.  I gulped a little, but I could live with that number... if it really sold.  So we put it on the market.  4 days later, I had an offer, a good offer.  4 days.  After almost two years with that other firm with not one offer of any kind, no less much interest. To be frank, from my experience with the other firm, I wasn't expecting much.  I didn't really know Helen or her abilities.  She seemed smart and capable, but...   So, I was surprised that my house sold so quickly.  I had to scramble a bit to find a new place.  No problem; Helen's team found me a great place in a great neighborhood for a great price.  I moved out of my old place on a Thursday and into my new place on Friday. I know this all sounds like a story someone paid me to write, but it's not.  It actually happened just the way I have described.  Thanks to Helen and her team. Less ... More

We worried buying our first home would be stressful and knew we would have lots of questions, but Helen and her team were there to guide us every step of the away. They made it a painless process, from finding our home, writing the contract, handling all of the inspections and contract process, to closing the home.
