Born into a third generation Chicago real estate family and having 15 years of her own experience as a professional broker, Heidi Prassas Ziomek brings both experience and expertise to every step of a real estate transaction, whether it’s buying or selling a home. As a lifelong resident of Wilmette, she offers her clients the benefit of personal insights gained over a lifetime and a deep local knowledge of Chicago’s diverse North Shore neighborhoods.
Heidi credits the personal level of her client-care approach to her education, training and work experience as a nurse. Although there are vast differences between health care and real estate, both require genuine understanding of those you’re helping, namely, a keen sensitivity, clear communication and the capacity to guide others through momentous life events. Her passion for helping others eventually brought her back to the family business of managing and developing real estate.
Although she continues to be involved with property management, her passion now lies firmly with helping her clients in residential real estate. Focused always on creating success for buyers and sellers alike, Heidi’s top priority is to remain connected and engaged at every step of the process. She is authentic and trustworthy with a high degree of technological sophistication and cutting-edge market analysis.
Heidi values her clients well beyond just buying or selling their home. In fact, one of the accomplishments she is most proud of was helping a client not sell their home. When her client was facing economic hardship, Heidi helped them get a grant so that they could stay in their family home, rather than being pressed to sell. This is the compassionate care that Heidi brings to everything she does and why her clients not only love working with her but also recommend her to friends and family.
When not working, Heidi loves to spend time with her husband and three children. Cooking, playing games, listening to music, going for a sunny drive, and riding bikes together are just some of the activities that enhance her life.
Heidi did a great job finding the right tenants for our rental property in Wilmette. Heidi isextremely knowledgeable regarding the real estate industry. She knows the area very well and has a real pulse of what is going on in our area. Heidi is a Wilmette resident, who grew up here and went to New Trier. She is easy to deal with and will give you honesty in her views and work hard for your interest. I highly recommend Heidi for all your real estate needs. You can’t go wrong.
I was moving from Colorado. Heidi helped us first decide which suburb would be best for me and my family by listening to our needs, our wants and what would fit into our budget. I trusted her so much I actually put an offer on a house after going through a FaceTime tour with Heidi. We love our house and our neighborhood. This is the perfect place for me and my family. Thank you Heid!
Heidi Ziomek Group were fantastic (property sold almost instantly!) and I cannot recommend them highly enough! I interviewed several agents before deciding to list with them and I immediately got the impression that they were the most knowledgeable, honest and skilled agents in the area. This impression was almost instantly confirmed as they were able to get my property under contract in less than 1 day after the listing went live and for almost the entire list price. It literally would not have been possible to get a better outcome than this. Beyond the amazing job with getting the property sold so quickly, they also went above and beyond to ensure closing went smooth and the property was maintained, which was critically important as I had moved out of town.
Heidi is the best realtor we have ever worked with period! She is easy to work with, engaged, motivated for her clients and an all around great person. You will love working with her and shecontinues to care long after the sale is done.
Heidi has helped our family greatly over this past year. She put our best interest in the forefront of the decision making and helped us through a well thought out decision. Of course she did this all with a great attitude and big smile
Heidi is truly genuine in all she does from beginning to end. I can guarantee you, she will end up being a friend of your for life! Not only is she the best in real estate, she is, hands down the kindness and most caring person you will ever meet!
Simply amazing to work with! Heidi was very knowledgeable and always honest! Highly recommended to anyone that is looking for a knowledgeable, honest, professional realtor to help them sell their home!
Heidi worked with us for a year to find the perfect home. She is friendly and quick to respond to calls, texts or emails. She is knowledgeable and took a lot of time to educate us on the market. We highly recommend her.
They made the process easy for me. They delivered excellent customer care and were on point with the entire transaction. They responded quickly and took care of all the little things. I highly recommend them.
We’ve worked Heidi on two of our properties. She really knows how to market the sale of your home to get the best price. We were able to get top dollar for the sale of our homes. The customer service she provides is excellent and she made us feel at ease with the process of selling your house. She also assisted us in the purchase of our new homes, she was honest and patient throughout our search. I would refer her to anyone looking to sell or buy a house.
Heidi was a pleasure to work with. She always responded to our questions no matter how small. She helped us negotiate the most for our home and was a great negotiator. Thank you!
My husband and I loved working with Heidi. She is the ultimate professional and very responsive. For most people, a house will be the biggest purchase a person makes, why work with an agent who doesn’t care? You won’t have that problem with this agent. She really cares about her clients and wants them to make the best decision for their family. I trust Heidi and highly recommend her.
I wish I could give these two 10 stars. If you are looking to sell or buy on the North Shore this is the team for you. My family has worked with them for years and I couldn't pick a better team. They live and work here and know everything about market trends, what it takes to get a house ready to sell and are on the ball when it comes to finding the perfect house for you. They are experts on preparing a house for sale and bringing in the right buyers. They show their own properties every single time and show buyers everything they need to know about a property from cosmetics down to the plumbing. We were recently in the market for our perfect new home in Evanston/Wilmette area and they were relentless in showing us multiple properties until we found our perfect house. On the sale end they will work tirelessly for their clients. They are dedicated and knowledgeable beyond anyone else. I just can't say enough wonderful things about Mary and Heidi - if you want to buy or sell they are your team!! The dedication and market knowledge is above all else. Plus they are super fun people to work with- professional to the utmost - and personally engaging. Please consider them for your next sale or purchase!
I am blown away by the high level of service we were offered. Martin Walsh helped us buy our dream house and he did so with incredible professionalism and dedication. We felt as we were his number one client as he was there to guide us through every single step of the process. Communication was constant, almost on a daily basis, and he made sure every single detail was taken into account from inspections, loan, insurance, etc. (he even helped with the moving part). Even after the closing, he still maintained communication and made sure we had everything we need. As a salesperson he was not pushy, very frank and had so many ideas on how to find the right home for us. Throughout the entire process we felt he had our best interest at heart. He made us think everything thoroughly before making any decisions. He was not focused on making a sale, but rather on helping us find the right home for us. Until I worked with Martin, I did not realize how much work a real estate agent/ broker does and how important it is to have the right person guide you through this process. He excels at what he does and we recommend him very, very highly. All in all, an amazing experience, as it should be, since it's a life changing moment in one's life. Thank you, Martin, for caring so much about your clients and for the incredible job that you did!
Heidi and her team are the most professional, knowledgeable and personable real estate brokers we have ever dealt with (and this is our 4th time buying a property). They made the process of buying a new house so stress-free that it was actually enjoyable! Heidi's ability to listen and understand our needs, coupled with her responsiveness allowed us to buy the third house she showed us. We are very appreciative for her efforts and cannot say enough good things about her and her team!
This is the 2nd time we have used Heidi and her team to sell our home. Both times, the sales took place in less than a week. Communication is excellent, marketing is professional and we always experience a high degree of confidence when working with the team. We highly recommend Heidi and the team!
With Heidi Ziomek Group you really get a Dream Team of service not just a group. I was being shown some residential properties and even though I was working with two members the service was seamless! They were in complete agreement and constant communication. I felt like I was their most important client...a real VIP! Needless to say, I did purchase a building and the process was so easy; Heidi even went to the closing without me :) What an amazing team!
The Heidi Ziomek Group is the most professional group of realtors that I have ever worked with. Heidi and her partners are seasoned professionals who put the needs and wants of their clients first. It was a pleasure working with all of them and would highly recommend the group to any potential buyer and/or seller. I have worked with many Realtors over the years and it is not easy to find agents that really listen to their clients and are able to deliver for them. Their experience at each phase of the sales effort was superior! E.g. innovative efforts in developing prospects, useful insights on pre-listing staging, effective showings and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations/due diligence. All of these were accomplished with a the highest degree of excellence and grace.
We've worked with Heidi in buying and selling a house and both times we had about a 6-week time frame in which to work. She handled us like a total pro. In each case we developed a specific game plan and vision. In first selling our house to make a cross-country move, she totally set us up for success: priced it perfectly (multiple offers first few days), well-marketed, stunning brochure and assisted with fantastic staging. Recently, when moving back to the area we needed something very quickly. Despite a limited inventory for our budget she went above and beyond and found something that exceeded our expectations (not easy to do when we weren't even available to preview homes in person). She always made us feel like we were a top priority. Best possible experience on both buying and selling! We are so grateful for the level of care and service she provided. She really managed to take the stress out of the process for us.
Heidi and her team provided exceptional customer service, advice and exceptional communication and responsiveness. This was helpful for us since we live out of town but needed to sell our mother's home. I would highly recommend Heidi and her team without hesitation. Very positive experience.
She is also helping us sell a home. Heidi is a dynamic personality and radiates energy. She is thoughtful and considerate. She is prompt for all appointments. She does her homework. I found one condo in this building that I wanted to look at and she found a far better one (which we bought) She grew up in this area and knows it well.
