Stephanie was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was always readily available to show us homes and multiple homes in one day for that matter with very short notice. She was very knowledgeable with the areas we were looking in as well as general real estate questions. If you are looking for an agent, I highly recommend Stephanie.

Stephanie was recommended by a mutual friend and helped me relocate back to the Chicago area from out of state. She and her Carrie and Renee teammates rallied and accommodated my limited schedule to line up showings on my weekend road trips. Stephanie is so knowledgeable about the area, responsive and detail oriented. I asked and she answered so many questions about the market, the search, offer and closing process and home inspection and maintenance. We logged many hours together touring houses and chatting by phone and email and I could not have gotten through such a stressful, long distance search in a crazy market without her! I love my new home and I would highly recommend Stephanie Pierce and the entire Carrie and Renee Compass Team!

Lauren was very knowledgeable about the market regarding the sale of our home in Glen Ellyn. From advising us on how to stage the house to what to price the home at to timing of when to put the house for sale. She was very responsive to our needs and always gave good advise on how to proceed. I would highly recommend Lauren.

My husband and I purchased our home with Carrie and Renee. We worked with other realtors before, but when we found Carrie and Renee, we knew we were in great hands. Renee was quick to point out new homes and get us into competitive showings. We valued her industry expertise and deep knowledge of the local market. Carrie and Renee were patient when answering our many questions and pointed out important things about each home which was so helpful as first time home buyers looking at old homes. When it was time to put an offer on our home, we were still contingent on the sale of our condo. Renee guided us in crafting the best offer that made us as competitive as possible without pressuring us out of our comfort zone. Now that we are in our home, Renee and Carrie are still very responsive when we reach out for a recommendations for trades (plumbers, roofers, etc.). We loved working with Carrie and Renee and already recommended them to our good friends who recently closed on a home in Wheaton with them as well. Always friendly faces to see around the neighborhood too!

Renee and Carrie and their team are incredible. We highly recommend working with them. We were interested in selling our home but didn’t know where we land, but knew we wanted to stay in Glen Ellyn. They found us the perfect new home and also brought several qualified buyers who were interested in purchasing our home. It all worked out perfectly. Everything was so easy with them guiding us through the selling and buying process. They know Glen Ellyn and the surrounding area so well and are so seasoned in the real estate business that they understand what your needs are before you do. Don’t hesitate to reach out to them. We would definitely use them again!

They do a great job of distilling their expertise into understandable and actionable strategies on both buy and sell sides.

They established a high level of trust very quickly and found us an amazing new home in a very competitive market.

Lauren was very helpful in the sale of our house and helping us getting a new house. She is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and the real estate market as a whole. She gave us great ideas and tips so that our house would sell quickly, things we would never have thought of ourselves. I would highly recommend Lauren!!

Lauren helped us sell our old home and buy our new home. She made sure we got top dollar on our sale even when it required a little patience on our part and made sure that we were the winning bidder on our purchase among 6-7 offers. Lauren has the most positive and calming attitude that you just want to be around. She followed up with us regularly even when she didn't have new info just to let us know that she was still there and working to get updates. Lauren is the best!

We recently worked with Lauren to sell our home and were thrilled with the results. She is incredibly thorough, with strong attention to detail. She came in during initial prep of the home and had great input, and this continued through the close. Lauren and the Compass team do everything they can to make the process simple for the seller. We had moved out of town already so the hands and eyes involvement made our lives much easier. Lauren knows the market and has great domain expertise with Dupage county. Her contacts were all extremely helpful. We highly recommend Lauren.

Very professional. Both are extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Many of the transactions I have had Carrie and Renee manage (both sell and buy), did have certain challenges. They were great with providing guidance in each case and being proactive with others involved to assure the best results.

We were looking to purchase a 2nd home so we were representing ourselves (given Zillow and other sites, figured I didn't need a Realtor) and Renee happened to be representing the Seller of the first place we viewed. After meeting her it was very clear the advantage of having an expert. There is no way we would have been able to purchase our home without her as we were 4000 miles away when it was initially listed. She is uncompromising, and extraordinarily effective, all while being a great person to get to know. We're very appreciative of the relationship!

Renee was the best! She was on top of the local market right from the beginning. I mentioned her name to my mortgage broker and he recommended her as well. The unit that I ended up buying was the second unit we looked at in the building and we both agreed on an offer price, even before the listing price was lowered. She is networked in the building, and was able to direct me to a contractor, that would ultimately do the renovation work on my condo.

Carrie and Renee are exceptional realtors. Their experience, negotiation skills and understanding of the market together with their guidance helped us sell our home in 2 days! They are compassionate and hard working. We felt cared about during the entire process and they treated our home with care throughout our experience.

Carrie and Renee are well informed, professional and friendly. We have used them to sell our home and our mom's condominium. They have a supportive team and are able to recommend the necessary support professionals to make a move go as smoothly as possible.

Easy from start to finish. Their market knowledge was superior. Their no pressure approach was refreshing. Their market preparation suggestions were reasonable and effective. Their listing price recommendation was spot on and prompted high interest. Overall, their expertise led to a quick sale and a smooth path to closing. I will recommend Carrie and Renee to all my friends.
