Liz is the best! If it wasn't for her connections, we would not have found our house. Not only that, her robust experience and expertise, we would not have had a chance at buying the house. She changed our life and I would (and already have) recommend her to anyone!
We purchased our first home with Liz in summer 2018 and we couldnâ??t imagine going through the process with anyone else. Liz was highly recommended to us by several friends and family members who used Liz during their home buying process. Liz took the time to get to know us and find out what was important to us in our home search. She was extremely patient with us and was always available to answer our questions throughout the process. She was extremely knowledgeable, and it gave us confidence as first-time homebuyers that we wouldnâ??t have had without her. Liz helped find us a perfect home where weâ??re extremely happy, and she helped us close the deal. When we wanted to look at and make an offer on our future home, Liz moved quickly to make it happen. Weâ??ll never forget visiting a place with Liz, where immediately upon walking in she said, â??Thereâ??s something off here and this is not for you guys. Does it have an odor? It smells like waterâ??. As she was searching the place for signs of water damage, another agent walked in with her clients. The other agentâ??s first comment was about how the unit had great natural light, and she proceeded to talk about how great the unit was, trying to sell it to her clients. We knew Liz wasnâ??t just working with us to make a sale, her goal was to help us find our dream home.
Liz is incredibly knowledgeable about everything home related, not just the market. It was so helpful to be able to talk to her about furniture, renos, the ins and outs of the neighborhoods etc. She really listens to you and figures out what you want and what you are comfortable with.
Liz was wonderful to work with. She took care of everything! We lived in another state during the entire process and I didn't worry about a thing, knowing Liz would make it happen!
First time buyer who had NO idea where to start. Liz was supportive from the beginning to beyond the end of the process. Her opinion is extremely valued and she built trust with me right away. I was very motivated to buy but knew that she'd work with me just as hard if it took longer to find the right fit. Needless to say - Liz found the right fit and I'm extremely happy.
It was great working with Liz! She understood what we needed, was professional and friendly, and found us the perfect place.
Absolutely outstanding agent. She answered all our questions and was always open to help. She is down to earth, thoughtful and a joy to be around. Made the process of buying my first home as seamless as possible. Thanks liz!
Selling and buying a home is definitely an experience. Ours was positive one because of Liz. We knew we could trust her, we knew she would steer us in the right direction, and we knew she had our backs the whole way through. Selling our home came first. Liz guided us through everything and gave us the confidence we needed to go on the market. Beautiful photos and a real 3D tour let buyers feel they were inside of our home before stepping in. These amazing marketing materials made our listing a "hot home" online and brought in serious buyers to our open house. From there we had a bidding war and sold above asking. 1 showing, above asking, and all within days after listing. Liz was a rockstar! Liz also helped us find our forever home. Everything that mattered to us was taken seriously, and with each home we toured we were given her honest opinion. She was able to offer thoughts and insights on our renovation ideas, potential red flags, and even had a tried and true expert in every department we could get in touch with for more detailed answers. Her experience and network were invaluable. With Liz, it was just easy. We could rely on her, we knew she was on top of everything, and we knew her intentions were first and foremost to help us to make the right decisions on OUR terms. Working with Liz was as enjoyable as it was productive with lots of laughs and fun moments along the way. We can't thank her enough, or recommend her more. She gave us the best experience we could have ever had in buying and selling, and she's given us our new amazing home.
Liz was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her constant professionalism and keen eye for spotting potential issues was a lifesaver. She helped us find our perfect family home!
Liz was terrific throughout the entire process! Many thanks again, Liz!
Liz was great through selling and buying - very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process.
We were thrilled with Liz's knowledge, enthusiasm, availability, and guidance throughout the search and most of the buying process.
Liz was my realtor extraordinaire both with purchasing and selling my home. Ever patient and kind, I could not have wished for a better or easier experience with my induction into home ownership. I trusted her implicitly, knowing that she held my best interests to heart.
As a first time home buyer, Liz made the process way easier than I was expecting. Aside from being extremely knowledgeable about the area & market, Liz was an exceptionally good listener and quickly helped us narrow down the search to properties that fit our needs. We ended up finding a house that we love within a few weeks, and Liz helped ensure that the closing process went smoothly as well - all the way through staying late on a Friday afternoon to make sure we closed on-time. Great experience - highly recommend.
Liz was incredibly responsive, helpful, and knowledgeable. She made the home buying process much easier and less stressful. We would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent!
Liz is a fantastic realtor that truly cares that her clients find the home that they love. She goes to great lengths to make sure her clients are happy. We couldn't be more pleased.
Liz Latour rules. Highly recommend her to anyone who wants to love their house.
Liz is the best, hands down. She not only sold our condo quickly, but also found us the perfect new home that fits our family to a T. And she took care of all the unknowns that would otherwise cause us stress. I could not recommend anyone more highly than I recommend Liz LaTour.
Liz was a huge help when it came to selling our condo. She was always willing to lend a helping hand we really don't know where we would be without her.
Liz is the best. She was very responsive, organized and honest throughout the entire process. I would not even consider using a different realtor in the future.
5 stars as always!!!!! Thanks again, you are the best!!!!
As a first time homebuyer, I was nervous about going through the process of finding and buying my first place. Liz made me feel completely comfortable throughout the entire process. She is extremely knowledgable, honest, and trustworthy. I had a great experience and am now happily living in my own place!
Liz is fantastic. Professional, accessible and focused on making the transaction a positive experience for all.
Liz is the best. Her hard work got our family the house we will be in for the next 30 years. We recommend all of our friends and family to Liz
Being a difficult buyer Liz was great to work with. She took me to over 50 properties until I finally found one that was right. I would definitely recommend working with her.
Liz exceed all of our expectations. I will recommend her to anyone in the market to buy or sell.
Without hesitation, I would recommend Liz to anyone who is looking for personalized real estate expertise in the Chicago area. I can easily say that if it weren't for her guidance, advocacy, and presence throughout my first time buying experience, the process would have become overwhelming. She offers great, up-to-date knowledge of the market, she understands the nuances of Chicago neighborhoods, she learns your personal needs and interests, she works well with other agents on your behalf, she makes the paperwork something not to fear, she gives you candid and straightforward advice, and most importantly, she is your greatest advocate not only until you close escrow, but well after. When it comes to real estate agents, I feel like I lucked out. Top qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity Lauren Schwendimann

In a tough market, Liz LaTour sold our property in an amazingly short time. Liz works hard, works smart and tells you the truth. She gave us expert advice on preparing our property for sale and prepared outstanding comp analysis to get the pricing right. When negotiations with first time buyers proved frustrating, Liz remained calm, level-headed and communicated by phone, in person, and in writing at each step of the way. Liz is a super agent: professional, conscientious, and motivated! Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert Kathryn Snyder
