Yvonne & Bernadette's Reviews
I knew when I had Yvonne as a buyer's agent five years ago that I had to have her again when it was time for me to move into another home! She is the absolute best, a true gem and pleasure to work with. She made it her job to find what was best for me and provide much needed guidance and advice. Thanks to her, I am now sitting in a beautiful place I can call home and I could not be happier! If I could give her a ten-star rating, I would! Thank you a million times over, Yvonne!- Joy I.
Yvonne was a pleasure to work with. We were moving to Illinois from California, and we were looking to buy our very first house. We were lost, and we had no idea where to start, especially being so far away. Thankfully, Yvonne was there to help us find the right home. During the months prior to our move, Yvonne sent us an updated list of available houses every day, via email, in our requested areas, that fit our space needs. We would chose the homes we liked and made an online list of the homes we actually wanted to see. Once, we were ready to make the trip from California to Illinois to see the houses, Yvonne called us and explained us the whole process. We only had 5 days available to see houses, and she set those days aside in her schedule just for us. As soon as we met her in person, we were impressed by her professionalism. She handed us a list with all the homes in our list, maps and directions to each address. She was definitely ready for us. I have to mention that we also had our toddler with us, and she was extremely accommodating and patient with him. Looking at houses with Yvonne was definitely a experience for us. We learned so much about things we never even thought about before. She would walk into a home and see all the positives and negatives of the property, which is something we loved! We loved her honesty, and how knowledgeable she was about roofs, leaks, areas, schools, and even good places to eat! She was just on top of things. We looked at over 23 properties in the 5 days we were in town! We were tired, but we never felt rushed or pressured to buy. Yvonne gave us our space and helped us keep track of our top 3 choices. Once we made our decision, Yvonne helped us find a great lawyer and inspector to move forward with the closing process. Overall, we would definitely recommend Yvonne to our friends and family or anyone looking to buy a house.- Rafael and Yascara B.
Yvonne was our selling agent for a town house in Glen Ellyn and she was amazing! She is not only extremely knowledgeable about the entire market but at the same time she is also on top of her game. She helped us price the property right using her tools and also ensured she collected feedback from every prospective buyer for us to identify any areas of improvement. She had all the right folks lined up for us including the cleaning agents, stager, inspector and the attorney's to ensure our entire process was very very smooth. We would surely recommend her for any real estate related transactions.. Thank you- Pratish S.
Yvonne went above and beyond throughout the entire process of purchasing our first home. She was with us from day one at our initial meeting all the way through closing and even after. She answered our questions thoroughly and promptly, no matter what time of day. If she did not know the answer to something, she connected us to someone who would, and made sure we got the answer. She is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, driven, professional, trustworthy, resourceful, and down to earth. There wasn't a time during the process where felt left out, lost, or misguided. She communicated with us seamlessly. We still communicate with her, even after purchasing our home. She also provided us with some very reputable recommendations, like our attorney, inspector and electrician. We would HIGHLY recommend Yvonne to anyone who is purchasing or selling a home. She's the best in the business!- Allison G.
My husband and I met Yvonne a few years back at a first time homebuyer’s seminar, when we were ready to take the next steps we knew we wanted to work with someone who was as knowledgeable and friendly as her. Yvonne made sure that we understood the home buying process and was very responsive to questions we had or listings we wanted to see. She also gave us great referrals for other professionals throughout the experience who were just as knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend Yvonne to family and friends who are in the market to either buy or sell their home.- Catherine and Patrick H.
My husband and I loved working with Yvonne. We met her at a first time home buyers seminar her knowledge and passion in her profession is what captivated our attention. She took her time to guide us through the entire process at our first meeting with her, which made it so much easier to understand. In less than two months we were first time home owners and so amazed of how the process was so smooth. Yvonne always answered all our questions some many times, she made us feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends, specially to first time home buyers.- Jessica and Jorge G.
Ms. Rusin helped a friend ours buy a house in Wheaton, and when it came time to buy ourselves, we contacted her. Our homebuying experience was overall very smooth and Yvonne was an excellent partner in the process. We intend to work with her in the future if/when we sell our house and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy in the area.- Jeramiah H. and Michelle B.
Yvonne was extremely helpful from the start of looking for a home and through the buying process of my first home. She was always available to look at numerous homes in various cities. She was knowledgeable about all the different aspects of buying a home. I would recommend her you all of my friends and family.- Jeff M.
Yvonne came to our initial appointment very prepared and extremely knowledgeable. We loved her marketing strategy and appreciated only showing our home to interested buyers. She was a great negotiator and stayed on top of things throughout the entire process. We truly could not thank her enough for all that she and her team did for us.- Feliecia
Both Bernadette and Yvonne were great to work with! Being that we were buying our first home, when we had questions or were confused about the process they were both quick to respond. They always went above and beyond for us. Was a great experience to work with them both and I would highly recommend them- Jeffrey
