Maggie is the absolute best, I mean exceptional. She is knowledgeable, and clearly an expert in her field. That being said, the thing that rally makes her special is her compassion, empathy, and ability to really connect with her clients. I felt like she was our partner during our home search. She was patient, and encouraged us to be cautious and thoughtful. Honestly, I wish I was buying another house so I could keep working with Maggie. She is an absolute star! If I could provide a rating higher than 5 starts I would!
Maggie found a tenant in the middle of winter, the holidays, an election and pandemic. She was tenacious in her approach and gave me realistic advice to have no downtime. I would highly recommend her!
Maggie was great. Very personable. I would have liked to have reviewed the listing before it went up and the photos of common grounds and Lobby werenâ??t as good as competitors. That said we sold in one day, the photos of my place were great. Maggie has an easy communication style that was refreshing.
Maggie did an amazing job on the sale of my condominium. We listed in the fall, not an optimal time to put a unit on the market, but immediately had interest in the unit. Maggie helped us navigate through the offers received and negotiate the best deal. She always answered her phone when we called with questions and stayed engaged in the sales process until the unit closed. Couldn't be happier to recommend Maggie to any prospective sellers or buyers. Maggie is the best!
Maggie made the experience enjoyable and was patient over the months until we found the perfect spot for us to be in the neighborhood we wanted with an outdoor spot for our dogs!

Out of town buyers require a real estate agent who understands the urgency and makes appropriate preparations for the client's visit. Maggie was always prepared for our visits and was extremely flexible in working with our tight schedule. As a result of her efforts, we were able to find the right condo within a short period of time and are enjoying our getaway. Maggie was recommended to us by a former colleague of hers who spoke very highly of her so we had no hesitations in working with her. Mahesh Merchant, Lakeview
As a first time homebuyer, Maggie was a great resource to me. I felt very confident in all steps of the process, from viewing a variety of homes to the closing. Maggie was quick to respond to my requests and questions. She guided me to ask important questions from each property, ensuring that I had the full picture to make my decision. Even though I had a smaller budget, I felt that I was still an important client and got her full attention. I am very happy with my purchase and know who I will turn to when I have a need for a realtor in the future! Jenna Pelaj, Lakeview
Maggie is very responsive and really listened to what I was looking for in an apartment. She was a pleasure to work with and was always just a phone call away. She was patient throughout the short-sale process I was going through and was with me with every step of the way. Thanks so much Maggie! Mavis Tan, South Loop
My husband and I were new to the whole buying a home thing. In fact, when we first met Maggie we weren't completely sure if we were going to buy or where for that matter. We just wanted to look around and see what's out there. Due to her being so open with us about how the process worked, we decided to go ahead and move forward with buying a house. While the first one didn't work out, she kept us motivated and we found the house of our dreams (and still live there). She made the process so easy and we couldn't have had a better agent with us through this process. We know that if we sell this house and look for another, Maggie will be our agent. Kerri Preston, Portage Park
Searching a place with her was the best thing that could happend to me, she is really kind and knows exactly what you want and what she is doing. She is always there and helps you to understand everything. With the help of Maggie, I found my home! Dany Moya, The Loop
We found the perfect condo in Chicago a little over a year ago! We live in Indiana and were looking for a second home in the city. We spent almost a year looking on our own, and with the help of Maggie. Maggie was great to work with. She has a very pleasant disposition, so it didn't ruffle her when we would call her at the last minute to line up some listings, sometimes scheduling a trip to Chicago on the spur of the moment. We viewed dozens of condos before we found the one we bought. Each time Maggie made herself available, often times changing her weekend plans to accommodate us. We chose the condo we are living in, because of its location and floor plan. But we also relied on Maggies's assurance that the management company was first class, and that other clients living there loved it! Our closing went smooth and we have not regretted a minute working with Maggie, or buying the condo where we did! Sheila, Streeterville
Maggie was an angel in disguise for us during the purchase of our home. We had an unfortunate experience with another realtor and Maggie stepped right in and gave us the best of her experience and expertise. Because of Maggie's help we were able to secure the sale of our dream home. Maggie was always available to us when we had questions or concerns and made the home-buying process simple and easy to understand. She is confident and knowledgable of the market and I have recommended her to everyone we know who needs a realtor! Thank you, Maggie! Julia Nutley, Lincoln Square
Elizabeth and I were very excited to be searching for our new home. When we found Dream Town very early in our search Maggie reached out and supplied us with a welcome Chicago packet that proved to be extremely helpful. Maggie's knowledge of the Chicago market was right on and we quickly narrowed our search to just a few options. With all of the details involved its nice to have an advocate that can keep progress moving forward. Thanks so much. We truly love our new Chicago home. Jason and Elizabeth Vantine, Lincoln Square
I worked with Ms. Ahern for over a year. I found her to be very familiar with the market, professional, courteous and responsive. Even though I looked at over 50 properties, Ms. Ahern never pressured me or made me feel like I was wasting her time. Her singular objective was to find me the right property for my needs andat my price point. She is a pleasure to deal with and I would give her my unqualified endorsement. Mark, Streeterville
Maggie Ahern is, in a word, fantastic. Finding real-estate is a journey, and Maggie is the quintessential real estate "co-pilot" for the process. She helped me chart my course (without forcing me to go to pre-defined places I didn't want to go); she flexibly guided me andrefocused my efforts as I explored and learned about properties that showed up on the radar (instead of the inflexibility and back seat driving of other agents) andwhen I found the property she expediently handled the closing without a single problem. Extraordinary professional service delivered by a genuinely nice person, an unbeatable combination!James, Ravenswood
