Lisa Wolf & her team were extremely helpful in the sale & purchase of our homes this year. My husband & I were more than pleased with the ease of the whole process. Lisa is professional, honest, helpful & knows the market very well. She doesn’t just put your house up for sale…she takes the time to really design & stage it to sell. We sold ours very fast compared to the other houses that were for sale in our area at the same time. She also helped us find and negotiate a great purchase price on a new house that we absolutely love!! We highly recommend Lisa & her team!!!

We have had the pleasure of teaming up with Lisa to sell our house (sold in 54 days during the stagnant housing market), buy a short sale house (she’s a pro at short sales!), and also sell my mother’s condo. Her professional advice and calm demeanor kept us on track and didn’t allow us to deviate from our goal. She talked us off the ledge many times. Beyond that, she’s a caring and wonderful person, very smart, even winning the praises of the attorneys on both sides of the deal!

My fiance’ and I just went through the house selling/buying process in Lake County, IL. I want to give some major props to people who really took care of us and helped make this all happen.

First and foremost we want to thank Lisa Wolf and her buying specialist Sue Dunnigan. I cannot say enough good things about these two. When we had difficulty with our original agent to sell Teresa’s house, Lisa stepped in to advise us on how to deal with the situation, without even getting a penny for the sale (but’s she’s really the one who helped make it happen). She and Sue then counselled us on our house purchase. After they talked to us, it was pretty funny, because I think they knew what we really wanted better than we did and they helped us select what is now our dream house.

Not only that, but Lisa and Sue also recommended to us our awesome real estate lawyer, as well as the HVAC guy and electrician that we needed to make Teresa’s house sellable.

I will tell you this, they are both (but Lisa especially) more like real estate consultants than agents. I learned more from Lisa in the first 90 min I met with her than I had learned in over 2 months with the other agent.

So, if you are in the market and looking to buy or sell a house, we unreservedly recommend these two. By the time we were done, they felt more like friends rather than agents.

Lisa was what I consider part of a new generation of real estate brokers. After discussing my “must haves”, she was able to target a huge selection and variety of options for me to look at. She carefully planned out visits keeping our time optimized, showed me several options and selections, but most importantly was able to pick up quickly what I was looking for. She helped narrow down to several possibilities, but took it a step further by helping me envision what my ideal home could look like based on what we had seen. She was instrumental in helping the deal come together, and offered some amazing assistance in walking me through every step of the process. I’d highly encourage anyone looking for a home to engage Lisa early in the process to make the overall experience easy and what it’s supposed to be – enjoyable and exciting.

Mike and I would like to thank you for such a great experience in selling our home. As you know, I owned and operated my own real estate company for over 20 years. I sold real estate for over 30 years. I personally trained over 150 agents throughout my career. I am so impressed with your customer service, knowledge of the market place, and outstanding ability to stage a home.

You went above and beyond any expectations I had in a realtor. I have known and worked with some of best realtors around and your ability is far superior to any of them.

If you ever need a reference, please don’t hesitate to give them my name. You can give our phone number and email address to anyone that needs a reference.

I feel honored to have you market our home. Moving is so stressful and you managed to handle every detail.
Mike & Shirley Peterson

It was our distinct pleasure and honor working with Lisa Wolf to sell our house in Gurnee! Lisa was up against another realtor whom we had done business with and did not have the upper hand going into the interview. After meeting and talking with Lisa for just a few minutes, we knew we had a very tough decision to make. We were blown away by Lisa’s knowledge, professionalism, exuberance, and enthusiasm…even in a dismal market! It was clear that Lisa was up to the challenge of selling our house for top dollar and in the least amount of time. Lisa was hired! Tenacity, a deep understanding of the housing market and our neighborhood and skillful negotiating led to an offer, contract and closing on our house all within about one month’s time. Lisa is by far the most talented Realtor we have worked with throughout our history buying and selling six houses over the years. We highly recommend her to anyone interested in having a positive experience buying or selling a home.
Tracey and Steve Lührs

Thanks to Lisa Wolf our home selling experience was a very positive experience! From the start, Lisa helped educate us on what we needed to do in order to have our home ready to list (including help with staging our home). She pulled recent market data and sat down with us to go over those numbers so that we could get to a realistic listing price. Lisa prepared a fabulous brochure with color photos of our home that potential buyers were able to take with them after they visited. Lisa is extremely knowledgeable, professional, responsive, and positive — and makes you feel as if you are the only client she has (although we knew she was very busy)! We appreciate everything Lisa did for us and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.
Nancy Moore

Working with Lisa was awesome! She is very attentive and lets you know what is going on at every step. Lisa helped us sell our house very quickly in a difficult market. Her photography and marketing skills are excellent. I would recommend Lisa to anyone who wants to sell their house!

Again, thanks for everything. I am really glad that we got to work with you!
Daryl & Christine

Lisa started out as the neighborhood realtor and ended up a friend that we are sorry to move away from.

I think the most important role Lisa played for us was to help keep our retirement downsizing goal foremost in our decision process. With the market “tanking” before our eyes, we identified our bottom selling price and made decisions upward from that point. We were presented with a buyer, and along with some creative negotiations made the sale. With the downsizing complete, we are now well on our way to a great “redirection of our available time.” Thanks you Lisa for your real estate expertise and above all your friendship!
Bob & Sue Needles

We truly couldn’t be happier! Without having any knowledge about selling or buying homes your guidance and experience was invaluable to us. From preparing, staging and organizing our house to sell (in less than a week!) to buying our new home, your knowledge of the market and the local area allowed us to find the perfect home quickly, easily, and within our budget. Your professionalism and positive attitude made our home buying experience from start to finish an easy and pleasant one!
Bill & Terri Klewin

Our family has relocated many times chasing corporate opportunities. In the Gurnee area, we not only purchased a home that Lisa had listed; but in turn, had her list it again for us when it was our time to move on!

Lisa takes her real estate seriously and is NOT a part time agent. She does whatever it takes to get the job done, and done correctly. I wish we could replicate her passion and professionalism elsewhere!
Jeff & Cindy Capezzuti

My husband and I had awesome experience with Lisa Wolf. Lisa had our house sold in a week, which was great! We had to scrabble to find a new house, and Lisa jumped in with both feet to help us find a new home. We are very picky and she was very understanding; we all love our new home that we found with Lisa.
I highly recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking for or selling their home!
Kelly, Jack, David, & Amanda Winston

Lisa was always professional, responsive and paid attention to the details that were important to US in a home. We have referred many of our friends to Lisa.
Andrew D’Amore

The wolfpartners Real Estate team exceeded our expectations! Lisa Wolf is a hard worker, and really knows the neighborhood. She sold our house and then helped us find and purchase a new home. When selling our property, Lisa’s attention to detail and creativity really paid off. She had us make some minor repairs and improvements to the house, staged it, took the best photographs, and presented it perfectly. Our listing really stood out! We quickly had appointments scheduled, received multiple offers and could not believe how soon we sold, especially compared to the other listings in the neighborhood. My wife and I would highly recommend wolfpartners Real Estate.
John Kacinas

Lisa is one of a number of real estate agents I have had the pleasure of working with. However, the transaction she handled for me related to the sale of my mother’s condo, and there were many issues she had to deal with, personalities, tensions and buyers. She did an amazing job! She was caring, straightforward and just what we needed at that time in our lives. A rare find.
Jackie Black

We are very impressed with Lisa and her team. She paid tremendous attention to helping us stage, market, and sell our home. We felt very comfortable with her ability to determine the best price for our house based on her vast local knowledge. She helped us understand what advantages and disadvantages our home had compared to other homes on the market. Selling your home can be an emotional rollercoaster, and Lisa understands her customers’ feelings and concerns. She helped explain what was going on in the market and worked hard to get feedback from potential buyers. We strongly recommend Lisa! Other agents do no measure up. Lisa invests in your home as if it is her own and has the marketing you need to get it sold.
Shawn Wiltse

Lisa and her team went above and beyond! She helped me stage my home for selling and I received and accepted offer in 10 days. She has a great eye for design. Lisa helped me find trustworthy people to do needed fixes. She and her associates were responsive, professional and very kind.

Lisa is the best. She helped us find our home in 2013. She was so attentive to our needs. Not only did she help us find our house but she also gave us great financial advice, led us to an excellent real estate lawyer and knew of several professionals in the area whom we used during the move in process. We can’t say enough good things about this dynamo of an agent.
Ken Matuszak

I was a realtor for over 30 years and owned my own real estate company for 20 years. I trained some of the best realtors in Lake County during that time. I retired in 2005. Knowing the value of a good realtor, in 2014, I hired Lisa Wolf to market my home. Not only was she successful in obtaining a very good and successful contract for my husband and I, we were impressed with her marketing, accuracy of the market analysis and the time frame for selling our home. We utilized her professional staging of our home and followed most of her strategy to obtain a good contract. She found us an amazing realtor in Florida where we are now retired. Thank you Lisa and your wonderful staff.
Shirley Peterson

We met Laura through an open house. We told her that we really loved the house across the street from where we had the open house but we saw that it was no longer available. Laura knew that it was going back on the market and got us in for a showing the next day. By the following day we already had a offer in on it. We used Laura to sell our old house and buy our new one and everything couldn’t have gone a better way. We had our offer accepted right away and we had our old house under contract in 5 days.
Thomas Minarick

In the last five years, Lisa Wolf and her team helped us sell two homes, rent one home and purchase one home. They were the most professional, attentive and friendly team to work with. Lisa’s team went above and beyond to stage, market and close the deals. They know Lake County like no other team and I’d be happy to work with them again in the future!

Lisa Wolf and her team helped make the entire process easy. They took charge, handled all the details, and kept me informed throughout the sale, beginning to end!
Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $275K in Antioch, IL.

Lisa has that great mix of being a true professional while also being down-to-earth, realistic and pragmatic. No one knows the area better than Lisa. No one has better contacts for attorneys, lenders, contractors, etc. For sure, no one can make your home look better for selling than Lisa and her team. Her team takes great care to make sure the description and pictures look the best as they can. On the buying side, Lisa really knows how to read people and understand what they are looking for.
Bill Lescher

We were so pleased to have Kimberly and the rest of the wolfpartners team help us to find our first American home. They were excellent when it came to local knowledge, finding a house that met our requirements exactly and being fantastically friendly and easy to work with. I would certainly recommend them to everyone.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Gurnee, IL.

Lisa and her team are fully dedicated and qualified to help you buy or sell your next home. We had a great experience with Wolfpartners. Lisa performed a detailed market analysis on our home, and provided a realistic asking price based on her in depth research. Our home was professionally staged and a list of suggestions was provided on steps to take to make our home ready to sell. Professional photographs and video were taken of our home which were wonderful. Within a few hours of our listing going live, we had multiple showing requests coming in, and we had the house sold within 48 hours of listing, with multiple offers made. My wife and I could not be happier with the service we received! If you are thinking of buying or selling, please give Lisa and her team of professionals at WolfPartners Keller Williams a call. You will not regret it.

I wanted to drop you a brief note to thank you for your work on the sale of our house. You do not know a lot about me, but for 35 years I have been involved in consulting with clients. I like to feel I know a good deal about the delivery of high end services. Your work on the sale of our house has, in my view, been an explementary example of delivering high end services. By that I mean you have done the following:

• You achieved a sale of my house in two months, something 5 previous realtors could not achieve over four years.

• You told me what I needed to do to sell the house.

• You told me that knowing that not everything you said has been what I wanted to hear, but needed to hear.

• When I disagreed, such as the backsplash, you have stood your ground, but given me alternatives.

• When I stated my limitations in doing what needs to be done, such as I could not be on the ground for managing the changes, you have taken ownership to get done what needed to be done.

• You committed the time and effort to manage the changes we needed to do, including being part of the staging and painting to late into the night on several occasions. Your commitment of time, concern and ownership has been truly impressive in my view.

• You had the courage of your beliefs to make changes such as the painting, clearly communicated your concerns, been aware that I might not be happy with the point and stood ready to listen to my concerns.

• When a sale became a possibility, you have tracked the process, kept me informed of the issues, tracked that I was doing what was my responsibility and been prompt to tell me of my shortfalls. As an example, you were quick to tell me of not making a timely payment to the painters.

• When an offer was made, you have been insightful and understanding in how I wanted to negotiate the sale. Doing so has been helpful for me in looking for a timely resolution of the sale.

• You have proved extraordinarily well informed of resources to address questions that were raised as the inspection and sale proceeded. For example, your guidance on how to address questions on the roof inspection were timely, effective and saved me literally tens of thousands of dollars.

• You have been effective in confronting me when I wanted to a quick conclusion when the best answer was to stand down and wait. Not many people who know me would do that.

As I said at the beginning of this note, I think I know a good deal about how to deliver high-end services. I know enough to find great pleasure when I see it being done as well as it can be done. You have delivered such services and it has been a pleasure and reassuring you were working for me and my interests. Thank you for your knowledge, insights, guidance and courage in this effort. If you ever need a reference please feel free to share this note and my willingness to discuss my experience with you.

Lauren Morn is absolutely amazing. Always in touch no matter what time of day or night. Lauren is so awesome at what she does. We are so happy with our new home and could not have done this without her! Thank you Lauren for all you have done for Jeff and I.

Best real estate agents in all of Chicagoland!
Lisa Teague

I have more than one reason to rate Lauren and her fantastic team members a solid “5”. From the very beginning when I invited Lauren and her partners to my home for an interview, I knew this was the agent that would finally sell my home. My home had been a difficult sell and placed on and off of the market for nearly 2 years. I noticed an immediate difference in this new team of realtors. The team’s presentation came with such enthusiasm, refreshing creativity, positive energy and an enormous toolbox of people and resources to get my home sold. I was so impressed with the length of time they spent in my home during the interview, actively inspecting my home, and then generating numerous new and definitive suggestions to get the home sold. I followed their suggestions, using their very professional and extensive pool of resources and my home sold QUICKLY! The fact that this team WILL sell your home while providing you with excellent follow up and feedback is an important aspect. …More than that this “team” of workers (Lauren (my agent!), Kelly, Lisa (team leader), Stacy, Kimberly , Lynn, Sue. Lexie, Laura, and Andrew)
– will completely surround you with warm, friendly professionalism in a way that gives you such peace and confidence that the s ell of your home is in the “best hands'”. Lauren…thank you. So very grateful to finally sell my home and then purchase the home of my dreams…something this same team also made happen.
-Sheila Pepple
We met Lauren when we were looking for a new home. She was very helpful with a difficult seller and was always available at any time of day or evening to address questions. Lauren and her staff made the whole process of buying and selling a home during the holidays a very smooth process. Our current home sold quickly thanks to all the quality photography, home highlights and staging touches. Lauren was a pleasure to work with and her always cheerful personality will be missed now that we have completed our move. She was 100% great. Not only she has a great personality but also the way she does things. She went the extra mile finding and showing different properties, she also explained the advantages of one property over the other, and when we finally got our home she was there every step of the way until closing. Lauren is great and without any hesitation I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a home and wants someone who cares and wants to have a great experience finding a home.
