The whole process from start to finish was seamless. All questions were promptly addressed and explained. Couldn't have been a better experience! The listing of a home in itself is very stressful so to have a realtor who will take care of all of the miscellaneous items is a stress reliever!
What good things can I say about Jackie Paul - more than can fill this box. I cold-called Jackie after seeing wonderful reviews online after having a terrible experience with a realtor (poor communication, response time, lack of professionalism or time-sensitivity). Jackie was immediately responsive and asked me some pertinent questions and by that SAME afternoon, we met and set up the MLS search. Impressive turnaround time. Jackie was able to show properties in a small window of time we had available due to hectic work schedules and facilitated an intelligent and well-informed offer the same week on a place we loved. Within a few days, we were under contract and because of Jackie's expertise and vast wealth of knowledge about the locale, secured a wonderful price that exceeded our own expectations. We are first-time home buyers. Jackie was patient, ALWAYS prompt with her communication, and was more than happy to sit down and explain to us every step of the process since we're relative property virgins! When some unexpected bumps came just before closing, Jackie advocated for us and was able to schedule our closing at the eleventh hour when we thought we might have to wait until the end of the week. Whether you are new to home ownership or are buying/listing a multi-million dollar property, I can't recommend anyone more highly than Jackie Paul. She is more than just an intelligent and knowledgeable realtor, she is a cheerleader, a sounding board, and an honest trustworthy advocate for her clients. Buying a home isn't just about turning the key, it’s about the journey - as we learned the hard way, be careful about selecting your realtor and do research before you just "inherit" someone from a listing you looked at or throw a dart at the phone book. All I can say is, it's inconceivable to me that you could choose Jackie Paul as your realtor and not have an exceptional experience. She is one of the best in her industry and I can't thank her enough for everything she did for us.
Very helpful in negotiations in an offer and continuously communicated all updates. Sellers’ agent took a long time to update when repairs were requested. Jackie followed up until we were given the needed information.
I would recommend Jackie as a realtor to anyone that is in the market to buy or sell a property. She has helped my wife and I on 2 separate occasions in the buying (2012) and selling (2014) process and without a doubt we were extremely satisfied. Jackie kept us updated through the stressful times and was fantastic to help us remain calm and educated. Jackie knew our area well and we have no regrets with our purchase or selling prices. She absolutely helped us maximize our investment. I would definitely want Jackie to be our realtor if we moved back to IL!
Jackie Paul is the model for great real estate agents. She went above and beyond on all aspects of finding the perfect home for me and my family. From helping to find the perfect school to always being present on all site interactions to her diligent and thorough communication, we couldn't have for more from an agent. She is extremely professional and pleasant and goes above and beyond to get you the answers you need to keep things moving smoothly. Her extensive network makes her very efficient and we always felt that she was doing whatever she could to help resolve any issues or obtain any answers. We will be recommending her to all friends and family who are looking to buy and/or sell property. We look forward to running into her around town and sharing a drink.

Jackie Paul was so helpful to us when we were looking for our first home. She made the process very easy and fun! Her vast knowledge made us feel relaxed and comfortable during the entire process. My wife and I would definitely recommend Jackie Paul to anyone looking for a new home.

I loved working with Jackie while searching for our home. She is very professional and knows the business as well as the area. I felt very comfortable working with her and will continue to do so when the time comes.
Jackie is an excellent realtor with outstanding knowledge of the market and area. She is very professional and excellent in customer care and has a remarkably fast response time. She helped us finding the right house and was great negotiating the sales price so we could stick to our budget. We recommended her to many friend already and will continue to do so in the future.
Jackie helped us buy our house in 2012 and it was a very smooth process thanks to Jackie. She knew the area well and we looked at all the available options with her before deciding on our home.
Jackie Paul is an amazing agent! I worked with her for about 3 months to find a home in the Western suburbs of Chicago. Jackie was always prompt and courteous for all appointments, willing to adjust our search requirements, and made the process fun even when it became a little frustrating to find the right place. Jackie sent articles with information and shared her experience and knowledge about different areas. I would highly recommend Jackie to any home buyers or sellers. I would work with her again in a heartbeat!
Our daughter used Jackie 4-5 years ago to purchase her home. When my wife and I started this process, based on that experience, we knew we wanted Jackie to help us find our new home. Our other home sold faster than we had expected and because of that we had to find a place within a sixty day period or we would have had to rent. Jackie knew our criteria, our time frame, and she made the whole process for us happen quickly and effortlessly. No time was wasted showing homes.... in fact, the home we now reside in was in the first batch of 5 homes we saw ... The result -we found our perfect home in a more than timely manner. The whole process from beginning to end was absolutely perfect.
I wanted to move my mother, a senior, to California where I live. I needed to do the sale of her home from a distance so I really needed a realtor with the patience to deal with seniors and their out of state children. Jackie was beyond what I could ever have asked for. My mother's English skills are poor and even that was not a problem. Jackie treated my mother as if she were her own-- deeply kind and respectful. And when the sale finally came, she sold it above asking, more than what we could have expected! Jackie is clear, direct, patient, and extremely efficient and honest. I could not recommend her more. She is the best in the business and I am extremely confident she would not let you down.
