Home buying was not on my agenda when I met Katie. I wanted nothing more to avert buying and simple rent. After scooping out the rental market, Katie broke through to me that it was pointless to rent when a mortgage would be far more affordable. The journey to becoming was simple. Katie had all the right contacts in her back pockets from the home inspector to the mortgage originator. She really kept us on track to finding the home that met our families needs. She was persistent on us not settling. We have bough a home that fits us perfectly. She is a fun, fearless and fierce realtor.

Katie helped my husband and 3 week old make a seamless transition from STL to the North Western Chicago suburbs. She was extremely flexible and even helped us look at homes via FaceTime since we had just had our baby. The way she helped us narrow down our search and keep us on track was excellent. She is now helping us find home to buy and has been so helpful and extremely knowledgeable! We would recommend her to everyone!

Katie Marella was our real estate agent for the purchase of a home in Del Webb. I know many real estate agents and believe that she was outstanding choice to complete the purchase of our home. Katie was always responsive in inquires, prompt, insightful, informative and professional. I have recommended her to other interested in buying or selling a home. Based on the extremely positive experience in buying a home we have contracted with her to sell our current home.

Katie was very helpful in finding a rental home for me. I was in a time crunch with a long list of must- haves but Katie somehow managed to find the perfect property!

If it was not for Katie, we would have never wound up in our dream house. Being unfamiliar with the Northwest Suburbs, my wife and I put our trust into Katie to find us the right area and the right home for us. After viewing just a couple homes, Katie quickly picked up on our likes and dislikes and used that knowledge to find us the perfect house in our desired area. We also appreciated the fact that Katie was not just looking to make a quick sale our of us. When we viewed homes, she was an extra set of critical eyes and noticed things we never would have thought of. I feel so fortunate to have worked with Katie, so much so that I recommended her to my parents, who also found a home that they are tremendously please with.

It was a pleasure both selling our home in Del Webb and finding a smaller model in the same community for us to move into. Both of you, Mimi and Katie, we're very helpful as we proceeded through the process of listing, closing, searching and closing again. Being able to do it all without a bridge loan or a temporary mortgage save us significant money.
What was most impressive about working with you both was the speed at which all questions or phone calls were answered. If I were still employed, you both would have been offered jobs working with me. Your attention to detail clearly showed me that you were head and shoulders above your competition....who I attempted to sell my home for three years without success. They took the listing and disappeared. Your worked it and made it happen. Our thanks to you both!
