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!
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.
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.
We listed our Wilmette home with Heidi and Marty of the Heidi Ziomek Group. They were fantastic to work with. I was very impressed with their knowledge of the market. We had a tough judgment call regarding whether to list early in the new year, or to wait for the traditional, later Spring market. Heidi and Marty analyzed the market, including both supply and demand, and correctly advised us to list earlier rather than later. This was a non-traditional call, but highly advantageous to us because there was high demand. We got a ton of showings and ultimately a great price. Another thing that impressed me was that Heidi and Marty were very steady hands during some tough negotiation situations. Our buyers were, at times, difficult, but Heidi and Marty were invariably steady, calm and wise, bringing high levels of professionalism to these challenging situations. They managed us well, too! They calmed us when we were stressed out by the process. Finally, Heidi and Marty were just incredibly dedicated, thorough and detail-oriented throughout the listing and sale. I can recommend the Heidi Ziomek Group enthusiastically and without reservation.
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.
Marty was amazing to work with on my home acquisition. For a number of months, Marty explored many areas of the city and trudged through building after building until we found just the right property. He was incredibly professional and unbelievably knowledgeable regarding the short sales and foreclosure properties. He has the patience of a saint. Yep,St. Marty. It has a nice ring.
My husband and I had a wonderful experience with The Heidi Ziomek Group. Heidi, Marty and Lisa were always extremely professional and fun to work with. We knew our house had a tough layout for potential buyers but that did not discourage the Ziomek team from selling our property. They got the house sold and we couldn't be more pleased. Overall, I would definitely recommend them to other buyers and sellers.
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.
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!
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!
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!
Marty felt like more of a partner than a broker during the process of purchasing our home. We felt as if he was as invested in our happiness as we were. Also his advice and support made us feel very comfortable and empowered during the daunting negotiating process. It was so refreshing to feel supported instead of pressured! My husband and I were thrilled with Marty and have no reservations recommending his expertise.
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!
Worked with Heidi and Marty selling our house and couldn't be happier. From start to finish the professionalism, knowledge and expertise was top notch. They were always present for every necessity and we got our asking price. We would never use any other real estate group in the area after our experience with them.
