Elaine's Recent Recommendations

"Our relationship with the Berkshire Hathaway - Chicago has been one of the most satisfying experiences we have ever had. From day one we knew our needs were in great hands. Most importantly, we were brought up to speed on 21st-century real estate marketing, and the impact it can bring to the table. We were welcomed warmly by the Elaine Pagels Group (Elaine Pagels, Brita Pagels, Laura Michicich, Lucy Hilt), and they kept our spirits positive as the need continued to help us during the uncertainty of selling a loved possession. You can do no better than to have this tough, and loving, group of professional women assisting you at all times." - Mary and John Stachnik

"I’ve been a real estate broker for over 30 years and am the owner of a real estate company. I had an investment property in Downers Grove with an uncooperative tenant and was having a hard time finding a broker to take the listing. Then I found Elaine Pagels team, and from our first conversation I knew they were the best for the job. I have never written a review for a broker before, but I had to write it for Elaine because I’ve enjoyed unprecedented service, great communication, seamless transaction, happy buyer, happy seller. With all the confidence I can recommend this third generation of Realtors to anyone!” - I.

“[In a home] You’re making an investment in what could be the most important asset you’ll ever have. The right moment is when you know where you’re going to live for a while, when you find the home that fits your family, and when it’s at level that fits in with your income and ability to make a down payment and then I would get a very long mortgage… 30-year mortgage and the rate will be fabulous, and there is no sense waiting if those conditions exist."

- Warren Buffett, chairman and CEO, Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
