Corporate relocation assistance is not as common in the real estate market place any longer.
When we moved here from the UK my husbands employers paid for all our expenses to sell back … [Read More...]

Here in the country suburban area of Barrington Illinois we are blessed with wildlife and birds and White Tailed Deer. For some the deer may be a nuisance, for others like me they are a wonder. White Tailed Deer may be attracted to your yard to eat and you can encourage them to come or discourage them if you like. Oh and even if you can, adding a fence is not going to stop them if you have goodies … [Read More...]
Doors; love them, hate them, many places need them and a pantry is one that needs. Pantries can get pretty untidy, full of half used products in open boxes, water and soda piled high on the floor, kids putting items back on the only shelf they can reach and so on. Not to mention how often the pantry door is opened. There are five adults in my house right now and three are guys. It seems like it's … [Read More...]

Wow Corinne, You have been amazing. Corinne has been with us throughout our 1.5 year (what we thought was going to be never-ending) house search. Before we could even recognize the type of house we needed, she was on top of the game. In fact she advised us to wait and not just purchase for the sake of purchasing. In my mind I was thinking, "What kind of Realtor does not want to earn money on the sale?" But later I realized that she wanted what was best for us.
Corinne is a very down to earth and realistic person. She wanted us to be comfortable with our purchase from a financial standpoint as well. This was very important to us. Corinne, Veerpal and I are grateful for the advice you gave to us. Every day we are enjoying our new home and we know that this was possible because of your hard work. You were very patient with us, and I thank you for that. Rashmi Kapur.
