Read what former clients have to say...

We used JoAnn Casali to both sell and purchase in the past; there was no other option for us to consider, as she was superlative in every way, and would only recommend *her* to others, regardless of where they might live in the greater Chicago metropolitan area. She was an exemplary listener, beyond attentive, very self confident, and exceedingly focused, but very calm -- which had a calming effect on us, which we needed! There is nothing negative to say about JoAnn. We were wonderfully fortunate to be able to use her again to sell our home. She would have been chosen to purchase another home for us, but, alas, Richmond, VA, is a bit too far we suspect!

Though not provided in the survey for a response, which is a bit disappointing, we want to say that ethical qualities are at the very top of our list of priorities, noting in that regard that JoAnn is a perfect example of someone who is extremely and vocally ethical -- while at the same time being among the very best in her professional capabilities and accomplishments.

We bemoan the fact that we must use another agent to make our next home purchase, but we will enter into a new relationship with clear and firm expectations of what we are looking for in an agent, and will insist that the person selected, though impossible to replicate, will behave in a way that would suggest that JoAnn is the person's North Star for guidance.

"I am very lucky and happy to have found JoAnn Casali in front a Unit with a for-sale sign. I talked to her for coulple of minutes and immediately I realized that she was just the right person whom I wanted to represent me as a buyer. JoAnn is:

- A sharp and very pleasant person.

- An honest, diplomatic, and classy person.

- An agent who truly and honestly represents the buyer.

- An agent who makes herselfef available (in person, email, phone) at all times.

- A true professional who identifies the issues and persistently removes all obstacles to make a closing happen on time.

In sum, I rank her A+ and recommend her to anybody who is looking for a great and reliable real estate agent.

JoAnn Casali had everything covered. She made sure we were ready for any roadblocks or issues with the purchase of our home. She made us sleep easy at night. JoAnn Casali is an exceptional broker. She was a pleasure to deal with and represented us well. Her negotiation skills were top notch. We were very pleased with the deal she negotiated for us.
Bob and Brenda Dafnis, Glenview

My husband and I had a great time working with JoAnn. She was always responsive, approachable, and endlessly patient. She clearly and thoroughly answered all questions we had. Buying a home is challenging and sometimes time consuming, but JoAnn made the process easier than we thought. We highly recommend her.
Jun and Hung-Chih, Northbrook

I would definitely recommend JoAnn for her professionalism, she is personable and listens well to a client's needs. She is very respectful, available and knowledgeable. She was a pleasure to work with and made my experience stress-free and enjoyable.
Ginny Safranek, Glenview

Joann Casali knew what to do and at every step and made it happen in a tough and saturated market for selling. she also fought for every dollar to get the most in a difficult market. Her marketing and giving attention to the property was never neglected. She took pride in her work and had great resources to execute every phase. I can’t say there are many brokers at this level within the region.
Henry Konover, Glenview

JoAnn is a great realtor. She has experience and cares about her clients.
Jeffrey Cernek Glendale Builders LLC, Glenview

We couldn't be happier with the guidance and expertise JoAnn gave us through the home buying process. Her support and attention to detail got us our home in the location we never thought possible! As first time homebuyers, we had a million questions and JoAnn was never too busy to answer emails or phone calls. We got lighting fast responses and we really valued that part of JoAnn's professionalism. She went above and beyond during the inspection and took it upon herself to investigate the permits of the rehabbed home we purchased! We would strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy/sell and we look forward to working with her on our next home! Not only did we find a trusted Realtor but also a friend in the community!
Mike and Christina, Glenview

Dear JoAnn,
I can't thank you enough for all that you have done with regards to selling my brother's condo. Your patience, guidance and "truly" caring attitude made me feel comfortable and confident that we would have good luck in selling it.  Please know that I will recommend you to anyone who needs an "outstanding" real estate agent!
Thank you again,

This testimonial is a little long, but I hope it convinces you to work with JoAnn Casali when you buy or sell your next home.

I'm a real estate broker in New Mexico, and it was time to sell my mother's home in Glenview. I searched for a broker that I could trust to handle my own personal business, and JoAnn was a perfect match. I wanted a full-time broker who worked with buyers and sellers personally - not a broker who farms buyers out to other members of a team. I believe a broker has to know both sides of the market to do the best job for their clients. I also wanted a neighborhood expert who was affiliated with a busy and well-respected office like Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago. Market presence matters. A comprehensive, quality online marketing strategy was also a requirement for me. As a long-distance seller, a tech-savvy agent for ease of text and email communications and document exchange was especially important.

JoAnn met and exceeded all of my expectations. Her listing presentation was professional, detailed, and addressed all of my questions. All real estate is local and while I'm a broker myself, I would have been lost without her local market expertise. I took JoAnn's advice when it came to the preparation and pricing of our property with the goal of striking the best possible balance of time and money. She helped me manage a number of tasks remotely - house painting, house cleaning, referrals to an attorney and title company, and assistance with an estate sale. JoAnn's relationships with and referrals to competent professional colleagues in the business were priceless.

When the home came on the market, JoAnn's promotional efforts were exceptional. The results? Better than I could have dreamed. We received a very respectable offer from a well-qualified buyer within two weeks. Throughout the transaction JoAnn provided me status reports on our progress, and monitored the details carefully. We closed three days ahead of schedule without a hitch. As icing on the cake, JoAnn treated me like a friend as well as a client. The sale of my mother's home was an emotionally difficult process and JoAnn took the time to be kind, and make the experience as stress-free as possible.

If you're ready to buy or sell, do yourself a favor and call JoAnn!

JoAnn was a fabulous agent for us. She really understood the market and helped us get a better idea of what was possible - both for sale and for purchase. She helped us stage our house for sale and price it right. She negotiated for us with the home we bought. She handled both transactions professionally. Definitely recommend her!
Chris & Sofia

I had my mother's condo listed for 4 years. One offer, unacceptable. I listed with JoAnn Casali & it sold in about 30 days for more than I expected! JoAnn did a superb job of selling & worked extremely hard bringing in staging items as the condo was empty. My hat is off to JoAnn as she took the load off my shoulders with all her assistance in every aspect of the sale & closing. I highly recommend JoAnn and thank her!
Mrs. Till

Dear JoAnn

"Thank you for all the tenacity, patience, good times & reliability you demonstrated during the many months of searching for a home for me. You have been a true example of a "professional", with much integrity in your business. I can easily recommend your services to others. Wishing you all the best in real estate and in life!"

Recently I sold my house through Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago and I had the pleasant experience of working with JoAnn Casali.

JoAnn was the most helpful and professional agent that I had the opportunity to work with. I feel she went way beyond the call of duty to help. During the sale, my attorney commented that my agent was the most professional Realtor she had ever worked with, and that is a compliment rarely given by an attorney. Your agency and sales profession should be proud of the fine work that JoAnn Casali perfoms."

"How much we really like and appreciate our new condo and location. There are just a few more boxes to unpack and find a location for but we're almost there. Our new found freedom is wonderful! Thank you for making what seemed impossible quite possible! Also thank you for the big basket of Italian 'goodies'. It's fun to open the packages and try some foods we haven't tasted before. From this whole experience comes your friendship which is highly valued. Life's best to you JoAnn!"

Dear JoAnn

"Congratulations on a successful close of escrow. Tracy was impressed with your professionalism and the manner in which you represented her throughout the transaction. I'm so happy that you found her that house as it has made a difficult transition in her life, much less traumatizing. Nobody could have done it better. And thank you once again for a job well done!"
Steve Haymaker CRS

"Dear JoAnn

I don't know where to begin. I have so much to thank you for. Let's start the list:

*Suffering through ice, snow,  -10 degrees that no sane person would go out in...

*Amazing support & encouragement when I wasn't sure I was ever going to land OK.

*Referrals for loans, drapes, and all kinds of work around the house once we finally found it!

*Friendship and caring all along the way

Thank you JoAnn for everything. You were a joy to work with and to get to know and I highly recommend you. Please let me know when you have a free weekend to come and see me and my new house!!"

"Dear JoAnn

We wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We truly appreciate everything you have done for us. We are very excited and love the idea that you will be our dear friend and neighbor! Thank you again for all your patience and understanding."
