"John Vinicky was amazing! He made sure our (big) move from the city to suburbs was as smooth as possible. He helped us narrow down towns, research anything we asked, continuously sent us new listings, went to see homes and push them forward or rule them out on our behalf and supported us every step of the way. So appreciative of his real estate expertise and attention to detail with every step of the home buying process. Every time we spoke he brought up details we wouldn’t have ever known we should consider. Would recommend him again and again!"

Catherine Geres Arnswald

"We were introduced to Anne through friends who were introduced to them through family, all who had worked with Anne and all who had highly recommended her. Upon meeting her she carefully listened to what was important to us during our move from the city to the suburbs. She understood what was important and honed in on properties within those parameters while addressing the advantages/disadvantages of each. She worked tirelessly to identify properties she knew would be a good fit for our family until we found the home for us. Additionally, she assembled a team of an attorney, home inspector and broker to assist us who we later referred to as the ‘dream-team’. Anne exceeded our expectations with her professionalism, diligence, availability and negotiating skills throughout the entire closing process. I’d highly recommend contacting Anne if you’re looking to buy or sell, she’s amazing!"

Michael Gurican

"Anne and Andrea were the definition of above and beyond in the selling of our home. Their warmth, genuine enthusiasm for our home, and comprehensive marketing plan made us feel very confident putting our listing in their capable hands. Anne made key decisions early on that helped us find the right buyer very quickly. Unfortunately, our property suffered damage after we had moved (out of state), before the new buyers closed. Anne and Andrea were there on an almost daily basis assessing the status, coordinating contractors for the necessary repairs, communicating with the buyer's agent, and keeping us updated throughout. Because of this, the sale went through as planned. We could not be more grateful for their dedication and professionalism, and I would highly recommend them to anyone!"

Ann Arcese

"We were beyond thrilled with Anne as our agent on both the buy and sell side. As a local realtor, she knew the market better than we anticipated. She quickly assessed our need, and had us in a well negotiated contract, under asking price, within 24 hours. We were at the closing table two weeks later, and met the deadline for our children to start school on time. When it came time to sell our other property, we decided to request Anne’s guidance again. She gave us the push we needed, and showcased our home with truly stunning photography and marketing spreads. We had multiple written offers beginning the first week of showings, and closed in under two months for over asking price. Truly remarkable from beginning to end. We would recommend Anne Monckton and her team to anyone."

Katra Knoernschild

"We had a wonderful experience selling our home in La Grange with Anne and her amazing team. From the early part of the process —preparing our home for the sale, staging, etc. — Anne ran a smooth process and had a strategic plan in place to get our home sold. Spot on advice every time, quick and prompt responses to questions, and an efficient worker. Her marketing materials were also quite impressive. Anne is professional, reliable and you can trust her to get the job done in what can be a stressful and emotional situation. If you’re considering a move to the western suburbs, or selling your home, we’d highly recommend working with Anne and her team."

Julie Welch

"She helped guide us through an extremely challenging relationship with a prior broker who did not live up to their agreement. Once we decided to work with Anne, she quickly marketed our property and generated multiple offers in a very short period of time. She's an expert in the real estate market with tremendous personal skills. Throughout our process and being out of state sellers, Anne always kept us informed of showings, potential buyers as well as provided advice on any staging or improvements we could make to have the property "show well". I couldn't recommend Anne enough to anyone looking to buy or sell in the western suburbs."

Reed Brubaker

"We would highly recommend working with Anne and her team. She was able to sell our home for the highest price we had anticipated and guided us in buying our new home at a true value. The entire process went quickly and efficiently. Her use of the most current and influential marketing materials such as videos and professional photography was part of the many services she provided. We felt our home was represented in its best light. Anne also has a patient and calm personality which helps to offset this emotional roller coaster of buying and selling your home."

Kerry Farris

"Anne is unbelievable to work with! She’s smart, reliable, and a master at selling homes quickly for top dollar. We did everything she suggested, and received multiple offers within days of listing. We ultimately accepted the cash offer, nailed down our preferred closing date, and are even friendly with the new owners of this charming home. Anne shows kindness and integrity in each of her conversations, giving thoughtful options to all the choices selling a home presents. We were extremely pleased with Anne’s work, and highly recommend her!"

Sean & Kristin Mccracken

"It was great working with Anne. She is very professional, highly organized and accountable for every element of the listing and sales process. She has a comprehensive understanding of the market and is aware of rapid changes that can influence price. She understands the need for good communication throughout the process and takes true responsibility for managing relationships as the sales process comes to a close. I will look forward to working with Anne again in my next purchase."

Mary Vonderau

"We loved using Anne as our agent in the Western Suburbs! When we met her, we actually had no idea which area to choose and she drove us around and educated us on the differences between La Grange, Western Springs, Hinsdale, and Clarendon Hills and helped us understand what sorts of properties we can expect in the different neighborhoods. I enjoyed spending so much time with Anne -- she is easy to talk to and felt like spending the afternoon with a friend from day one."

Jeannie Sullivan

"Anne is an amazing partner if you are looking to buy or sell. She helped us sell our home in just 14 days and for 99% of list price! Next, Anne put us in a great position to buy the perfect home for our family. She took time to get to know our preferences and looked out for our best interest at every step of the way. Her knowledge of the market and negotiating skills were key to getting the house we wanted at a great value!"

Curt & Jen Musser

"We highly recommend Anne! On our home sale, we found Anne’s results-driven approach extremely effective. She sold our home in 3 days at 95% of list. On the buy side, Anne was able to quickly understand our family’s needs to focus our search and was a strong advocate in negotiations. We were highly impressed with Anne’s knowledge of the market and her high level of customer service accommodating our busy schedules."

Laurie & Drew Haning

"Anne was extremely helpful in guiding us to the perfect house for us. She assisted us with the houses we wanted to look at, but always had her eye open for other houses that might suit us better. She was also very on top of the market, so that we were the first to know when a house we had previously deemed as too expensive had a price drop that made it fall back into our range."

Rich Murphy

"Anne worked with us for almost a year. She helped us narrow down the town and neighborhood that would best fit our family. She also helped get us an amazing deal on the house even though there were 2 other offers! We couldn't have done it without her and were so happy with the entire process!"

Chris & Christene Macko

"We had a wonderful experience with Anne! I would highly recommend her services. She is personable, highly knowledgeable, and had our best interests in mind. With her calm demeanor, she brought stability to an overwhelming and emotional process."

Kelly Furmanek

"Anne was an absolute delight to work with. She made the entire buying process easy and enjoyable. She is extremely responsive and knowledgeable. Will definitely recommend her and her team to anyone needing a great agent."

Nick & Kim Spurgash

"Anne is the best- highly recommend! She sold our home in less than a week. Then helped us every step of the way to find a new place to call home in La Grange. She’s knowledgeable, friendly and on top of every detail!"

Natalie Tores

"Anne went above and beyond from start to finish. She was on top of every detail during our buying and selling process. Highly recommend her!"
