Carol Hunt - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

I knew that every house on our side of the block and one or two on the other had been sold by Carol at one time or another, so I was already impressed with her record when time came for her to sell ours.

And she did not disappoint! While we were out of town for the entire process, she handled all aspects of the sale--from suggesting a few cosmetic changes at the start to a deft touch with negotiations at the end--with grace, speed and total dedication to a successful outcome.

Sarah Ross

Carol is a true professional in every sense of the word.

She remains intensely involved in her transactions from the beginning through closing and beyond. She excels at navigating difficult negotiations and is tireless in exploring every avenue for solving problems when they arise. Her network of contractors and other professionals is invaluable in collecting information and getting things done in short time frames. I am a real estate attorney and always look forward to the opportunity to work with Carol and her clients.

Robin King

Carol took the time to listen to my criteria and desires and once expressed, she never showed me something that conflicted.

No wasted viewings, no trying to force me to consider something "just to make a sale." In addition to representing my wishes, she was very helpful with recommendations for tradesmen and service vendors. Carol is a true professional who knows her area very, very well.

John Green

Carol was great to work with.

She was very creative in approaches to exposing our home to different groups of people. It was an unusual home and she completely got it and was very adept presenting it to potential buyers. She was always on hand and never passed a showing to an associate or lox box situation. We had quite a few difficulties with the contract negotiates and closing, that were not of her creation, and she was very good at finding speedy solutions. I would highly recommend Carol to anyone.

Nancy Bush

Carol’s experience, knowledge, and expertise are first-rate.

She was professional, responsive, and thorough. She helped us buy the new home that was right for us and sell our previous home at a good price and in a timely manner.

Margaret Cook

My 100+ year old home in Winnetka was a very special place for me and my family.

We lived there 49 wonderful years. My hope was that there was a buyer out there who would also value this great place. I had no lack of offers to tear it down, but I wanted to preserve this treasure. Carol Hunt was key to making it happen. She created a very cost effective plan, including an imaginative kitchen transformation. Carol gave me sound advise on how to show the house. She was highly responsive from initial discussions to final sale. To my delight, in little over a week she identified just the kind of buyer that I had hoped for...a young family who value this warm, inviting old home. I could not have done it without Carol's help.

Robert Rosman

Carol Hunt was a wonderful resource when my husband and I started to consider selling our house.

Her research was thorough and thoughtful by considering so many aspects including the age, style and other variables that set her market analysis apart. What was most comforting was her ability to help us navigate and consider both the financial and emotional implications of selling a home we had been in for over 30 years. My husband and I endorse her as a true professional who knows her stuff and someone who also knows a lot about human nature.

Every friend who has worked with Carol to either sell or buy a home, or who was referred to a realtor in another market by Carol, has thanked me for recommending her. I’m grateful Carol has paved the way for me several times. — She referred me to a fabulous realtor in WA in the 1990s. — In the 2000s, Carol helped me with a purchase in Chicago. I couldn't have been happier! — Carol found a rental for us during a transition.Now, she is going above and beyond as the realtor representing me in purchasing a home. Even if I wasn’t related to Carol, she is the agent I would choose for buying or selling residential real estate. I’ve heard it said that Carol is a “real pro.” I couldn’t agree more!" 

Janet Paras

Carol was terrific, patient, kind, motivated, and focused.

She sold our house in a day and then spent many months keeping us calm until we found a condo which met our needs. Once we found a place she gave up her dinner engagement so we could write our contract! I would recommend her to anyone!

We have been trying to sell our townhouse for over 2 years, with no offers.

That is, until we found Carol. She advised us what we should do, and the house was listed and sold in 8 days, at a price we didn't think we would get. I don't recommend many people, but Carol Hunt is the best and would highly recommend her. She just gets to work and gets results!

Frank Smith

Carol Hunt quickly and precisely evaluated our home.

She not only priced it correctly for the market, but was knowledgeable about the neighborhood and type of buyer that would be suitable for our home. It sold in less than a day. Carol immediately had us touring multiple locations within the area. Due to her alert pulse on the home market, she had us view a property which had just come back on the market that a.m. It was a perfect fit for us... and Carol professionally handled the negotiations to ensure our bid was accepted. We are delighted with Carol's support through this time, and needless to say OUR NEW HOME! Kathleen and Frank Schmitt, Glenview, IL
