Tell Us Your Story

I want to take a moment to thank you for introducing me to Anne.

She’s everything you said and more-  smart Gold Coast experience, down to earth and friendly. I would recommend her to anyone. I really enjoyed meeting with her. 

Deborah S

Officially, my wife and I moved to Chicago in June.

In reality, she had relocated here in February for work, and I followed in June with our dogs. Moving 1000 miles is stressful enough, but combine that with being separated for 5 months, selling one house, long-distance job hunting, and buying a new place in Chicago, combined it about put us over the edge.  This is where Anne comes in to the picture. She worked around my wife's work schedule to not only show her houses, but neighborhoods as well. Anne spent the time to get to know us and what we were looking for. Never did we feel like we were being a problem or a nuisance to her, even when we were asking crazy neighborhood or commuting questions.  In the end,  Anne found us a great house in a great neighborhood. Through her seemingly endless contacts, she also played a huge roll in getting me my job here in Chicago. We can't thank her enough! I would recommend Anne to anyone. She possesses tremendous knowledge and information about Chicago's housing market and Chicago in general. She is a true professional. - Brad

Anne is a real pro.

Charles D Friedmann

I have worked with Anne on multiple real estate transactions and have been very impressed and pleased with our results.

She is very customer focused and provided excellent communications during the process. She also worked with us to create a detailed real estate plan, with our input and then she made sure it was executed. I would not have received this kind of customer care anywhere else.

We were relocating from Texas to Chicago and had never been to the city before.

Anne was incredibly helpful in our quest to lease a condo (as well as providing the city’s history and tips to living in Chicago). After our initial chat of what we were looking for, Anne recommended a couple areas of town and set up alerts so we could see what was available in the areas. She coordinated all of the appts to look at places and drove us around town with her expert navigation and parking skills. We even had a short time frame to look & lease in, which got even shorter with a very delayed flight. Anne re-arranged the schedule so we could see all of the places we were interested in. I have had poor realtor interactions before… but with Anne I could not have asked for more helpful, more professional experience. Very responsive to all of my questions. We will be calling her again when we decide to buy a new place!

Nancy

Thank you so much for all your thoughtful attention to detail and your understanding nature.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I highly recommend Anne to anyone who requires the assistance of a real estate broker whether to sell or buy a home.

I did both when I engaged Anne and I could not be more pleased with the results. Timing was of the essence; we were successful in concurrently managing a sell/ buy. Anne demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and as a veteran real estate agent she was able to meet every challenge with an answer. Anne’s work ethic is unparalleled and her honesty and integrity are without question. Besides all that, Anne is fun to work with – her high energy and enthusiasm are contagious. From start to finish it was a joy to work with Anne. -Lori  August, 2014

Barbara J

Thank you so much for taking time to help me find an apartment here in Chicago.

 I have really enjoyed my first month in the city and a big part of that is loving my home. I appreciate your patience throughout the process and your willingness to put in the extra effort to make it all happen on our limited time schedule. I cannot thank you enough for all you did. It means so much to me! --- Katherine (August, 2015)

Katherine

I was introduced to Anne via a referral and I couldn't be happier with her work.

She provided a thorough and comprehensive sales plan in addition to answering all of my questions. As a first time home seller her experience and depth of knowledge were invaluable. Best of all she got me an offer the first day my home was on the market. I would recommend Anne to any of my colleagues and friends. Glenn, July 1, 2013

Glenn

Anne led us to exactly the type of condominium we were searching for, but also enlightened us by showing us some types of units and areas we had not considered.

This allowed us to make a quick, educated and extremely confident decision. Anne provided the perfect amount of counsel and guidance......and made the process fun! Her knowledge of the areas and her many years in the industry were invaluable. Her handling and expertise of all negotiations was done with perfection and utmost professionalism. I would recommend Anne to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.  

Carol

She made the move from South Carolina as good as it could possibly be!

 Thanks, Anne! -Jenn and Brad

Jenn

  When we first moved to Chicago 20 years ago, Anne took us in hand and found us the perfect house in the perfect location.

She stepped us through as first time home buyers and kept all the balls in the air when several years later we became first time home sellers. That is why she is our go-to realtor now. Not only is Anne charming and easy to get along with, she also takes the time to really listen to her clients and learns what is truly important to them. She will also take the time to explain everything to you so you never feel blindsided. She is open and honest and always has her clients best interests front and foremost.

Cate

I highly recommend Anne to anyone in search of a real estate agent.

As a first-time home buyer, she helped me through the entire process, and connected me with other high quality professionals (attorney, lender, etc...). She was very knowledgeable, and was able to answer all the questions I sent her way. She also helped me identify what I was looking for, and was extremely easy to work with.

Jason O.

  You are SO wonderful.

 You are an amazing realtor, but more importantly you are an amazing person.     My sincere thanks and gratitude for all you have done.  Please keep in touch.  

Lisa

We have known and worked with Anne for over 15 years, buying our first two properties from her in Chicago.

She was not only an expert about real estate downtown, but took time to listen to our needs and showed us only property that interested us. We recommend her highly!

Randy

Anne immediately pointed out the selling points and got me in gear to stage accordingly.

She's does not waste time in getting any prep done and knows what we were up against regarding competition in the area. Plus, Anne is fun to work with and always upbeat. I have referred Anne to friends who were looking on the buy side. They also had great experiences and happily living in their new homes.

Deb

We absolutely love our new condo, and we could not hace found it without your hard work, support, and enthusiasm!

Dan and Michelle

My place sold for much more than anyone thought!

Thanks again; that was a job well done!

Cynthia W.

This is to most highly recommend Anne Rossley as a real estate salesperson.

She is smart, friendly, nice and a real worker who knows the market and does everything possible to assist the client. anne is intelligent and industrious and a real asset to any business.

Mari

Anne was great to work with and advised us every step of the way.

Even though we had a smaller listing, I felt like we had her undivided attention and was impressed that she made a point to be at every showing. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Anne again.

Megan

Anne Rossley invented her particular brand of real estate consulting which is comprehensive, customized, creative and dazzling.

 Every aspect of the real estate transaction can be guided by Anne’s depth of experience, wide range of knowledge, marketing brilliance, technological proficiency, social media savvy, and unifying negotiation skills.  Anne is much more than a real estate agent and from the minute her clients meet with her, they know they are in good hands.   I have worked with Anne since 1995 when she was managing agent for a new condominium project and I was the mortgage broker in charge of mortgage loan project approval.   She was a lightning rod for getting the impossible done and I marveled at her “can do” attitude against all odds.  She repeatedly amazed me with her creative solutions, new methods for efficiency, problem solving, and new ideas.  I later became a real estate client, both for a property sale and purchase --- including residential and commercial.   She thinks ahead to what is needed and answers questions even before they are asked; all resulting in a seamless transaction.   Anne brings something unique and incredibly special to each property and to each client.  For her sellers, she “sees” the property for the best way it should be marketed and moves quickly to devise a plan including design ideas for the interior and exterior.  She is known to stage and move furniture herself with brilliant results captured perfectly in the property’s professional marketing photographs.     Her comparative market analysis is realistic yet the highest possible.  Her marketing pieces are stunning and sent to exactly the right target market.  Her warmth, smile and approachability add more wonderful touches to the sales plan, particularly during open houses.   Anne winds up every project by having flawless closings.   She contemplates potential concerns before they become issues and kindly but firmly negotiates even the most complicated contract terms.   Anne will astound you with the depth and breadth of her professional knowledge and services.   And when you meet her, shake her hand and feel the radiance of her smile, you will know you are working with exactly the right real estate agent for you!

Diane P.

We have had experiences with many realtors in our corporate moves.

Anne is the best of our experiences. In addition to being the local expert, negotiator and responsive communicator, she became close to our family and was very astute about our needs for housing. She was extremely patient and resilient throughout our complicated on/off moves caused by the sale of our home in OH. She is a shrewd business partner that I would love to have on my side in real estate decisions.

Ashish P. Diwanji

Anne gets it done.

She sold our condo @ asking price after first showing! WOW! She is a pro! We have worked with many realtors in buying and selling properties over the years and you cannot find a better resource than Anne. She is great @ what she does and in addition to her professionalism she is a gem and pleasure to work with. Best get it done attitude with a smile and then some!

Athena Golianis

I don't know what I would've done without you!

  You're fabulous!

Janet

Anne Rossley is an amazing realtor.

 She is truly a professional, which is refreshing to see.  She is committed to her clients more so than trying to get a quick commission, and focuses on earning credibility with her clients.  She has my highest recommendation and I hold her in the highest personal regard. Anne was very quickly able to figure out EXACTLY what I wanted in a property.  After one day out she knew what I wanted even better than I did. Her ability to tune-in to her clients is really bar none.  She is extremely knowledgeable about practically every structure in Chicago.  It's a true learning experience just to take a drive around the block with her. Also, Anne is very responsive and timely.  If she says she is going to be there at 9:00 she is.  This is remarkable considering how busy she is!  Also notable is that she does not delegate out her showings to assistants.  She wants to be there to see and learn what her clients like or dislike about each and every property. She is also a great negotiator.  I think that because she is so professional she has earned credibility with other agents, which assists in the negotiating process.  She is also, however, practical.  She takes a very analytical, fact-based approach in helping to determine what price to offer/pay for a property.  For the properties I was most interested in she ran extremely detailed spreadsheets and comparables.  She must have spent hours preparing detailed comparables.  She is also realistic though -- and will tell you when something is out of your price range.   For example, for one property I was particularly interested in and knew I would be interested even before the showing, Anne had done so much research about it in advance she knew more of the key information about the unit and building than the listing agent--no kidding. I really can't say enough about Anne.  She is an amazing realtor and kind, empathetic, and ethical person.

Kay

Thank you for guiding me through the rigors of selling my home, scouting and selecting my new home, finding peace while remaining true to my principles--all the while holding on to the keep-an-eye-on-the-prize optimism.

I truly admire your wisdom, perseverence, professionalism, and humor. I could not have done this without you!  

Barbara

Five Stars!

!! Anne is GREAT, and it would be impossible for her to improve on her already high standards and approach to her work! - Susan and Brad
