"Rachael has a great reputation to getting the job done. Knowing this could potentially be a difficult situation, she was exactly the one for the job.
Rachael made an extremely difficult situation (we were house swapping with Seller)
as tolerable as could be. We always knew she had our best interest in mind and communicated beautifully throughout the process.
We experienced MANY road blocks and u-turns during this process and Rachael was professional and courteous, yet firm. She had resources at her fingertips and was always available to us any time of day/night/weekend and even holiday to steer us through the muddy waters.
If you are considering Rachael Real for your purchase or sale, you will not be disappointed. Her honest, reliable and professional nature will make your process as smooth and informative as it can possibly be!"

"Rachael was very very knowledgeable at everything we threw at her. If she didn’t know the answer to something, which was rare, she’d find out for us. Rachael’s availability and communication was fantastic. She’s very friendly and approachable, I never felt like I couldn’t ask her anything. I would 100% recommend Rachael Real to anyone looking for an agent."

"I consider myself extremely lucky to have worked with Rachael on my first home purchase. I knew absolutely nothing going into the real estate market and she made everything very easy to understand. The bar is set so high now that I can’t imagine working with anyone else in the future."

"Our situation was tough, we were let down by a previous agent and their team. Rachael was god sent, from my first phone conversation with her in tears because of how tragic the situation was she made me feel as if it was a quick fix. She was not only a realtor, she was a psychologist helping me through our tough times. While going through the process of purchasing she became a friend, she has always been accessible to take my calls answer texts and still checks in on our new home to ensure everything is well. I have the outmost respect for her because she was always motivated to helping us out and making sure we made it through successfully. It seemed as if it was personal to her and that she was going through it along with us. Her guidance is unmatched, very experienced in every aspect of home buying. Always provided answers and or possible solutions to questions asked, I have bought two other houses prior and Rachael just blows the other agents out of the water. This transaction was really smooth and flawless, I can’t thank her enough for the help. We feel indebted with her for her dedication, we could not have done this without her. Don’t look further, Rachael is the ONLY person to call when buying a home. You won’t regret calling her, I PROMISE!!
Thank you Rachael!!!!"

"Our case was a difficult one. We were short selling our condo with a very uncooperative bank, and buyers who backed out at the last minute. Not phased by any obstacle, Rachael sold our condo giving us great relief! We will certainly rely on Rachael and her team for any future Real Estate needs!"

"Rachael did a phenomenal job pricing and marketing our home. She did extensive research on comparable properties and put together an impressive plan on how to market our home to sell quickly. The photographer she hired to do the photos took beautiful pictures of our home and we had several showings scheduled the same day it was put on the market. We had 3 offers the first weekend our house was on the market. She helped us choose the best one in order to maximize our profits and receive top dollar for our home. I truly believe it was because it was marketed so beautifully and priced just right. I would highly recommend hiring Rachael to sell your home."

"Pleasure to work with Rachael, as in all real estate timing is everything. There was a buyer for my specific property out there when I was selling. I wanted a specific platform “Coming Soon” for a month and move onto full blown MLS from there. Rachael listen to my ideas and put an action plan together and made it all happen just like I wanted. Home sold on first day of showings."

"Rachael made excellent suggestions on improvements to the property and had wonderful workers she had ongoing relationships with that actually made the improvements at exceptional prices. She had a great vidiographer who took crisp, clear pictures for the internet adverisements. The house sold in two days at a much higher price than origanally anticipated. There were some challenges with the title and she walked us patiently through all of it.
I really can't say enough about how great I think Rachael Real is. She is all of the above and more. She even anticipated concerns and addressed them in advance."

"Rachael Real's knowledge of the Elmhurst, Villa Park and Lombard areas is by far the best around. I recall many times I thought I found a great home for our family and after reaching out to Rachael, I found out the reason she had not forwarded the property to us, in 100% of these cases the property was in a flood plain I was not aware of, foundation had issues or there was some other problem Rachael knew would be a deal breaker for me. I like to think I was being proactive, but it turns out I was working harder than I needed to, Rachael was on top of it and never failed to send over a home she knew covered many bases and provided great insight to the area that she knew would benefit our family. Rachael's ability to point things out within the homes we toured is also top notch, it's almost like having an inspector with you, she's well versed in how things should work and can point out potential problems the average home owner may overlook. I like to think of myself as the most difficult person Rachael has ever worked with, I'm not sure if that's true, but I can say with great confidence, Rachael was always upbeat, not once did I feel like she was pushing me to buy! The truth is, I could go on and on about how great the searching and buying experience was with Rachael, and for all those reasons I will never sell or buy another home without her! Save yourself the headache of searching for a realtor and call Rachael, you won't be disappointed!"

"We couldn't be happier with the help Rachael gave us. She was extremely responsive and knowledgeable. She helped us navigate the process of buying a home for the first time. We would happily recommend her to anyone needing a realtor."

"We moved out of state and selling our home was the easiest process for us out of all of it because Rachael Real was on top of everything - responsive, knowledgeable, extremely helpful and an overall delight to work with."

"I have zero complaints, Rachael was fantastic! She went above and beyond by enlisting the help of her professional real estate investor-friend when we looked at our first four-family. She continued to go above and beyond by obtaining vendor quotes for work for us to include in our analysis of potential properties. I can't wait until I'm ready for another investment purchase because I enjoyed working with her. Regardless of any issue we ran into, I felt confident that we we're in good hands."
Bradley Calvin, Roselle, IL (Buyer) Sun, 09 Apr 2017 04:12:57 +1000

"I chose Rachael Real because I know she gives 100% plus to everything she does. She is professional, respectful, and considerate at all times. I wouldn't work with anyone else.
The sales went swiftly and smoothly; I couldn't expect much more. I appreciated the way it was handled from beginning to end.
She was a pleasure to work with; I had no worries. The transaction went seamless and the experience was flawless.
Thank you so much,"

"Rachel was a great help in finding my first house. She was very informative of the entire process and what to expect at each step, so I was never left saying "whats next". Rachel was friendly and honest about everything, I could really trust her. I couldn't imagine going through this experience with anyone else."
Jason Schaefer, Lombard (Buyer) Mon, 15 Aug 2016 12:26:11 +1000
"We had to short sell the home, so I researched agents with experience in that area. I reviewed many agents online and I was drawn to Rachael Real, based on testimonials and her apparent success in this area. From the first contact on we felt comfortable with Rachael and knew that we had made a good choice.
Rachael was wonderful to work with, and I truly felt that she had our best interest at hand the entire time we dealt with this and with her. She was very knowledgeable about the industry and about the type of sale we needed to make. I would strongly recommend Rachael Real as a highly competent, personable agent who will make sure you understand the process and your options all the way through."
Bob - Bolinbrook, Illinois (Seller) Thu, 19 May 2016 07:41:25 +1000
"Rachael Real is awesome! She is so knowledgeable about so many things! She knew what we should list our house at. She was able to advise us on what to do to the house to market it. The photos she took were amazing! When we sold the house the first two times and the buyers backed out she stayed calm and advised us what to do. Even when we were a wreck! She was always available when we had questions or concerns.
Thank you to Rachael for a wonderful job!"
