Jean Sekera
Coldwell Banker Realty

Jean is a true pro and an ideal agent to work with. She’s organized and communicates extremely well. She’s not too intrusive but offers helpful advice along the way. She was very available to us throughout the process. She has worked with many of our friends and helped us all make it a ‘home’. She gives honest, current market advice on how to proceed from the first showings to the closing of a home. I wouldn't work with anyone else!

Jean knows the neighborhood and the quality of the competing homes. I found it easy to agree with her recommendation. Then she explained how to sell quickly at the best possible price for our clean but unimproved house. Based on her advice we listed on Monday and had a contract on that Friday at 18% over asking price. Jean is honest, intelligent and delightful to work with.

We initially met Jean while looking to buy our home and she was the seller's agent. Her professionalism and dedication to her clients was remarkable which is why we knew we had to work with her when selling our home a few years later. Once again, she was very professional, organized and easy to work with. She represented us well, and did not skip a beat in exceeding our expectations. We definitely recommend Jean to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

We want to thank you so much for getting us to this point of purchasing a home. We have LOVED working with you. You are an amazing agent that has a great ability to know what your clients need and want. Thank you for working so hard week after week, house after house. Thank you for always encouraging us through this process.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Jean. As first time buyers we had a lot of questions and Jean was able to help us every step of the way! She was so patient and knowledgeable about the process, maintenance and care of a home and really helped us to be able to think in terms of the future! She was very diligent about pointing out things to us that we would have not thought of ourselves and really wanted to make sure we purchased a quality home. I highly recommend Jean to find your home!

Working with Jean made the process very simple. She sold my place in 2 days and worked with me to make sure I found a new home that I loved. I would recommend her to anyone.

This is the second time I have worked with Jean. The first time was in 2002 when she helped me find my first home. Being completely new to the process, she took the time to walk me through it, so it was not so scary. She was also extremely professional. She showed me properties that fit my interests and my budget.

In 2007, my wife and I decided to sell our home, and I was surprised when I contacted Jean for the first time in five years and she remembered me and the address of the property she'd previously helped me buy. We were quite nervous in selling given the current market situation (Spring 2007), but she was very straightforward with us. She had a very good feel for the market, and sized up our property vs. our competition well, accentuating the positives but not sugarcoating the flaws. This allowed us to best decide what where we allocate our budget to fix up our place before selling. She found a price point that we were happy with and that brought in a large number of prospective buyers. Jean was very confident in the face of a difficult market, and extremely hardworking. We were pleased with how soon we were able to sell our home. Jean provided us all the information we needed as sellers and was always available (day or night) to answer our questions and give her much valued opinion. She made sure to coordinate with all the parties involved and was truly on top of her game! To anyone out there who is contemplating on undertaking such an enormous task as buying or selling a home . . . we highly recommend working with Jean!

As you know, selling your home can be very stressful. You made everything from listing the house to the closing as stress-free as possible. You always kept us informed of every call, feedback on every showing and were always available for us. You negotiated a contract that was perfect for us. Bob and I respect your professionalism and hard work. Thank you for helping us move on to our next home.

Jean was great in helping me sell and buy a home. Extremely professional, always willing to explain things and provide expert advice. Provides tips and advice on red flags when looking a different properties. I recommend her to anyone I know looking for homes in NW side of Chicago and the surrounding area

Jean was an amazing help to us as we looked for our new house. She was very patient and always worked hard to find the perfect house for our family. She definitely went above and beyond her professional responsibilities, and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone trying to buy a house.

- Jim D.

Thanks again for all your help. I was telling someone earlier that your professionalism impressed me. Whenever I asked for your opinion you were very diplomatic and just pointed out facts. You're very good at what you do. I'll call you again when the need arises and refer you to my friends.

-Justin H.

 

Jean was a pleasure to work with; as if having your friend helping with property needs. She was 100% committed to finding the best place for us. She helped us uncover pros & cons of each property we viewed. Jean was always available to show us properties when convenient for us. We will certainly refer her to other Chicago prospective home buyers.

-Richard & Sarah L.

 

As a first-time home buyer I had many uncertainties about what I should look for when purchasing a home as well as many questions regarding the home buying process in general. Jean displayed a great knowledge for the business as well as a true patience with me to answer all my questions and concerns. She took into account my wishes for what I was looking for in a home and scheduled showings around my schedule. She helped me make a seamless transition to a homeowner. I highly recommend Jean Sekera!

I would highly recommend working with Jean.   I've worked with her on 3 properties and I can't wait to work with her again.

After working with other realtors, Jean was a refreshing change. She never gets emotional and is always professional. I highly recommend her to all my friends and clients!

-Todd M

 

Our experience was very pleasant. Not only did we use Jean for the sale of our condo but for the purchase of our new home. We found her professionalism to be refreshing. One of the main reasons we decided to list with her was because of her non-pushy realtor approach. She let us take our time, look at as many places as we wanted to and was never pressuring us in any way. We really appreciated that!
