"Enthusiastic, honest and knowledgeable," are the accolades that Neeti's clients have used to describe working with her.
Neeti can guide you through the Chicago neighborhoods with ease as she's lived in Lincoln Park, East Lakeview, Roscoe Village, and now calls Ravenswood (part of Lincoln Square) her home. She possesses a comprehensive knowledge of Chicago and the many benefits each unique neighborhood offers its residents. Plus, she has guided buyers in finding their perfect property throughout the Northwest and Western Suburbs.
Neeti received her Bachelors degree at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Upon graduating she began her career in Corporate America at General Mills, which enabled Neeti to master the arts of communication and negotiation which now contribute to her success as a Realtor. With extensive experience in marketing, sales, customer service and technology, Neeti feels completely at home in the real estate world.
"I'm very proud of the fact that most of my clients become friends and the majority of my clients I represent are either repeat business or referrals from other clients!" Neeti says. "I think these strong relationships are built because I pride myself on being completely honest and straight-forward with my clients and do whatever it takes to ensure their best interest is met."
Neeti loves hunting for deals and has become very experienced with short sales and foreclosures. In fact, Neeti and her husband enjoy investing in multi-unit buildings and continue to grow their real estate portfolio. Plus, after undergoing a major home renovation herself she has a great network of architects and contractors to help her clients with any big or small home improvement jobs.
When it's time to relax, Neeti enjoys cooking, traveling, walking the lakefront, and trying out the endless array of local restaurants in our great city!
Thanks for all your help in find our new home & selling Sheilah's condo! We know that we were picky buyers so we really appreciate all the time and energy that you put into helping with our search. We really love our house and can't wait to complete the renovations and move in! Kevin and Sheilah, Downer's Grove
We found Neeti by accident and are very glad we did. She helped us nail down our requirements, including the complications of renting with a dog, and especially helped arbitrate the husband and wife wish lists. She showed us 10 or 12 condos in 3 trips, always on time, knowledgeable of the area, well prepared and up positive. We could not have asked for a better guide for our first foray into city living. Neeti really impressed on us the importance of our "wish list", a nicely furnished, move-in ready condo that would allow our dog to be with us, and also being close to where we wanted to be. We feel very lucky to have come upon such a competent, upbeat agent and would not hesitate to recommend her. Ted and Lynn, Streeterville
"Neeti is seasoned professional who made our home buying experience as painless as possible. We gave her a huge wishlist, a crazy deadline of a month, and she made it all happen for us. The most helpful service she provided us was assisting in identifying the neighborhood we wanted -- she patiently took us around all over the city until we found what was right for us. Having an agent who I could relate to, who encouraged my choices, helped me talk through the pros and cons of buying each property provided support that I didn't know I even needed! She brings an extensive knowledge of the city of Chicago with a background in buying and selling various property types. Ultimately the more experienced an agent is the better they can search for you. And that is what Neeti did for us -- even though we searched high and low on the internet ourselves -- ultimately she found us our dream home. Thank you Neeti!"
I recommend Lynn Reidl and Neeti Arndt highly! I have nothing but great things to say about them. I have depended on Lynn and Neeti for my many housing needs since the fall of 2008. We've been through so much together -- a condo sale, a condo purchase, and even rental apartments. I trust them to always put my needs first which is unusual in any sales market. They truly care about their clients' happiness. Lynn and Neeti helped me sell my condo under some very difficult circumstances. First, at the time I decided to sell, the housing market had taken a huge downturn. Second, my condo unit did not come with a parking spot and most people want a condo with parking. Third, and worst of all, my condo association had just announced that there would be a large special assessment. The exact amount of the assessment was undetermined and, in fact, the condo board discussed the assessment for almost a year before they agreed to a specific amount. So, my condo sale required very thoughtful marketing and knowledgeable realtors. Lynn and Neeti met the challenge. In spite of all the obstacles, they remained positive and, once we found the right buyer, they worked out a deal that was good for both the buyer and for me. My condo was sold for more than I originally paid for it. Best of all, although I'm a nervous mover, I stayed relaxed and happy throughout each of my moves, purely because Lynn and Neeti radiate so much positive energy and calmness. They love what they do and care deeply about matching up each person to their dream home. It's what makes them happy. They are a great team.
When working with Neeti Arndt on the sale of our Bucktown residence, I have had the fortune to experience the following characteristics; Cheerful disposition, firm grasp of the current market and trends, respectful of our family in regards to showings, always available, happy to provide visually enhancing recommendations for the residence, firm understanding and grasp of selling expectations, exceptional communication skills, creative exposure of property, focused and attentive, fun and fabulous. I have recommended her to friends/ family and look forward to her continued success. Susan Oshinski, Bucktown
Neeti was recommended to me by my first real estate agent which goes to show the confidence portrayed in her abilities. Working with her was such a great experience, since I was looking to purchase a foreclosed home she knew the correct channels and the right steps to take in order to have my offers reviewed and accepted. She made time for me to view as many properties as I could fit into my schedule and helped me in my walkthrough of the houses to analyze each one's potential. Because of Neeti we were able to finalize the purchase quickly and trouble free. As a first time homeowner I was very lucky to have such a friendly and experienced agent to work with. I hope to work with her again in the future if I ever decide to purchase a new property or sell the one where I currently reside. Jose, Oak Park
I couldn't ask for more in a real estate agent. Neeti is extremely resourceful, knowledgeable about the market and various neighborhoods, and very honest. But most important, she is patient! I am a type A personality all the way - very picky and anxious - and she didn't bat an eye. Neeti first helped me secure an apartment two years before I entered the buyer's market, and once I was ready to take the leap into home ownership, she walked me through the process step-by-step, taking the time to explain anything I didn't fully understand in regard to the contract and closing processes....which was a lot. I am extremely happy with my first home and am always telling my friends about the wonderful agent that helped me get it.
When my husband and I decided to buy a foreclosure fixer upper for our first home, we had no idea what we were in for. I'm so glad that we had Neeti on our side as we would have been lost without her. She went above and beyond her job as a realtor to make sure we got the perfect home for us. Neeti stuck with us through what seemed like a hundred houses viewed, and a few contracts that fell through. When we found that perfect house, she worked hard for us to make sure that our contract was accepted by the bank in a timely manner, which is no easy venture when you are dealing with foreclosures. Then, when our mortgage broker couldn't get the deal closed, she provided us with another broker who closed the deal in just over 2 weeks. Clearly, she has the knowledge and the right contacts to get things done. If we wouldn't have had Neeti as our realtor, there is no way that we would be homeowners today!
Neeti was an amazing agent, confidant, (occasional) therapist and friend during our home buying process. In our opinion, she went way above and beyond the standard services of a real estate agent — even meeting with contractors and other vendors on our behalf when we weren't able to be there! We will always be grateful for her sound advice and calm demeanor in what can be a very stressful time.
Neeti was a great help from our first meeting to the closing on our new condo. As first time homebuyers, we were very indecisive about what we wanted and whether to buy at all. Neeti guided us to the neighborhoods that best suited our demands and helped us narrow down our "wants" and "needs" list, without pressuring us to make decisions we weren't comfortable with. She thoroughly reviewed the buying process and timeline with us, then consistently reminded us of what we should be doing as buyers at any given time, even after we went under contract. We love our new home and have Neeti to thank for it! Lauren & Matt, Ravenswood
Lynn Reidl and Neeti Arndt are a real estate Dream Team unlike anyone else in the Chicago area. Right when they walked through the door during our first appointment, my wife and I knew they were the perfect fit.Lynn and Neeti worked together seamlessly to sell our current home and buy a new home. Not only did they have a contract on our current home within two weeks (in an extremely difficult economic climate), they also were unwavering in their efforts to find us the perfect new home that we absolutely love (even though we were indecisive and continued to request new viewings - sorry guys).Along the process, they kept us informed of progress, opportunities and were very flexible with schedules. They were extremely knowledgeable about buildings, areas and always had the information to help us make informed decisions. Most importantly, we knew they had our best interest at heart and wanted us to make the right decision for us vs. making the sale and moving on to another client. That was reaffirmed a few weeks after we moved in when they sent follow-up emails about the progress to ensure we are happy in our new home. Now that we're settled, we're so glad they we chose to work with Neeti & Lynn. We would recommend them to anyone buying, selling or renting in the Chicago area and when the time comes again to move, we will be using them for all our real estate needs. Thanks for everything and we're forever grateful for all the invaluable information you provided to our family. You are not just our realtors, you are our friends! <br/><br/>Andrew & Sarah Streeter, West Town
Kyle and I just want to say THANK YOU for all your hardwork and committment! You exceeded by far all our expections and have been the best Realtor!! Thank you for always being available and for calming my anxiety when I thought I would be homeless! You are just amazing! Tania and Kyle, Logan Square
Neeti is the best real estate agent ever! I think what makes her amazing is her ability to "think like me", but then also point out all of the things that I never thought about or forgot, but that actually matters a whole lot to me! She is honest and frank about everything and isn't afraid to ask the other agent the tough questions. Many times, I would be wondering how to ask the seller agent a certain question, and she would come out and ask the exact question I was thinking! And she is SO patient - she understands that buying a house is a big decision, and treats it with the care, as if she were buying the house herself. My first offer, we made it all the way to inspection, and a few negative things came out about the house. Neeti did extensive research for me to argue both sides, and when I decided to walk away from the deal, she didn't bat an eye. Speaking of bids, you want Neeti on your side during negotiations! I never would have gotten my home for the price I did without Neeti. It's hard to describe how much pressure there is when you have to negotiate for your future home, and I always felt Neeti was on my side. Moreover, I have not met a more knowledgeable real estate agent - I think it's because Neeti is naturally curious and loves to ask questions. By the time I closed on my new home, I felt 100% sure this was the right decision and looking back, I could not be happier. Finally, Neeti works with a lot of great people, so when it comes to lawyers, lenders, movers, she has a good recommendation (and all of them have worked out well). Bottom line is, if you're thinking of buying a place, you really should talk to Neeti first! Alex, Wicker Park, 2012
Meeting Neeti and having her as my Consultant for finding me a perfect condo, was one of the best decisions I've ever made. She really got to know my likes and dislikes, and was able to literally find me a "Dream" come true condo. Throughout the process she was very professional, and always had expert advice to share with me. If it wasn't for Neeti's experience and keen sense of real estate knowledge, I would not have been able to get this perfect condo. Thank you Neeti for doing what just comes natural for you, and for making me an extremely satisfied client of yours. Rory, South Loop
