"I don't know if words can even express how amazing Lida is. She went above and beyond to get this deal done and was there to help us at every turn of the deal including late night trips to Home Depot with the builder! Lida isn't simply a realtor; she's a designer, an advisor, a power negotiator and now a lifelong friend. She has an amazing team behind her who worked seamlessly to complete the mortgage and legalities in a limited time frame too. We will be indebted to Lida for a long time for helping us to find, secure, shape and settle into our amazing new home." - RW

"We have used Lida as our agent to buy/sell our last 2 homes. To say she is outstanding would be an understatement. The moment we told her we were thinking about selling, she was on it! She came into our home and, with an extraordinary eye for detail, as well as many years of experience, helped us declutter and decorate to sell. She is confident, determined, motivated and very hard working. She sold our first home in 22 days. Lida is dedicated and loyal and I would choose her as my realtor every time. She is not satisfied until her clients have found the home of their dreams!!" - IG

"I have worked with Lida prior to this transaction and will definitely work with her again. Lida really listened to me and my mother - our investment needs, our likes and dislikes. But she did not just blindly do what we told her to - she also added her immense professional knowledge / suggestions and helped us make a much better decision than we would have by ourselves. On this particular deal the seller's agents were somewhat green / specialized more in rentals rather then sales, so Lida picked up a LOT of slack and did both hers and theirs job! I HIGHLY recommend Lida to all - seasoned buyers/sellers (you will have a richer experience due to her immense knowledge of Chicago market) and to first-timers (she is awesome at explaining the process)!" - LM

"If you want an absolutely superb realtor, Lida Downey with @Properties is the best of the best! She is incredibly efficient when it comes to the home buying process, knowledgeable, highly responsive and communicative. The team she has when it comes to the lending and attorney side of things is equally as fantastic! Lida and I worked wonderfully in partnership together on my very first home and got me the house of my dreams--all within my budget, in a highly desirable area and on my time schedule. I am thrilled with my experience and I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thank you Lida!" - SG

"Lida is a consummate professional. I was so impressed by her knowledge, intelligent and calm demeanor, as well as her tenacity on my behalf when I purchased my home in April that I hired her to sell my condo, as well. She went above and beyond the call of duty, handling a myriad of peripheral details in my absence. In large part due to Lida's talent in staging the condo, it sold in just one week! Moreover, both before and after each transaction, Lida was there to refer me to her vast network of resources, including appliance and home furnishing vendors as well as contractors and repairmen. I applaud her for providing excellent service to her clients and give her my highest recommendation." - KT
