"Mary is a force of goodness -- energetic and a pleasure to work with. We had never sold a home before and, as long-time New York City renters, had low expectations. She made the entire process simple and swift. Mary did an enormous amount of work preparing the home, far beyond the call of duty. And she has an exceptionally keen eye for staging a home. Selling a home from far away is difficult enough. But leveraging her local expertise, Mary arranged and coordinated countless services to help us get the home ready for sale. We couldn't have done it without her. Furthermore, we were selling our late-mother's home. We were freshly heart-broken and Mary was extremely kind, sympathetic and respectful -- all traits for which we are deeply grateful. We recommend Mary highly."

"My husband and I really enjoy working with Carl. He is not pushy and very educated. We love his expertise. He is very proactive about getting us into homes we would like to view. Inside the homes, he has ideas for renovation and is a very knowledgable resource. I highly recommend working with him!!"
The Deanne Family
"Renee was AWESOME! We sold high and bought low! House sold quickly due to her designer eye in staging and passion around selling homes. Always responsive, above and beyond with the little things from professional photographer to helping wherever she can. You can’t go wrong, buying or selling call Renee!!"
"Patrick guided us through our process with enormous care, great advice, and shrewd dealing. His research and insight were spot-on for valuation of the property, recommending appropriate remediation/repairs with the seller, and being a liaison with our other professional partners (the lawyer, mortgage broker, etc). His confidence and objectivity about the process helped to ease our anxiety and confusion as first-time homebuyers. I give my most unreserved recommendation of his services."
Tim & Megan Davis | Warrenville, IL
"Patrick, best known as Pat is one of the best Realtors around. He is very patient and informative. He is not pushy at all, which is one of his best qualities. Our deal was almost off three times, but he saved us and we finally closed the deal with no issues.
During the whole process, he always stood by our decisions."
Kapil & Sonali Gadgil | Westmont, IL
"Mary helped me and and my husband find our first home in the Wheaton/Glen Ellyn/Naperville area. We were new to the area and wanted to work with someone who knew the western Chicago suburbs extremely well. She was extremely responsive and flexible with scheduling, often meeting us the day a home came on the market. We really appreciated her quick responses to our questions and respect for our budget and preferences. We ended up buying our perfect home the day it was listed, for under asking price. She also helped tremendously with negotiations during the home inspection process. I highly recommend her as a reliable, trustworthy and hardworking realtor. Her personal touch makes you feel as if you were her only client."
The Shemons | Naperville, IL
"As first time home buyers our experience was flawless with Carl. We couldn't have chosen a better realtor to work with. Carl is knowledgeable, friendly and on top of his game. My fiancé and I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home."
"Renee was absolutely a pleasure to work with! We met Renee at an open house two years into our search for a home closer to my husband’s work. She greeted us with a friendly smile and delicious cupcakes!! After having a pleasant and informative conversation with Renee, we knew she was the realtor for us. Although buying a home can be a rocky road, Renee’s warm and approachable personality coupled with her knowledge and research of the housing market made the entire process much smoother than we could have imagined. With sincere respect towards our wants and needs, Renee helped to guide us to the perfect location in no time. We were confronted with some obstacles throughout the negotiation process, and if not for Renee’s hard work and devotion, the deal would not have happened. Renee also connected us with the perfect realtor to sell our own home. Within a quick few months we purchased, sold and moved and are now very happy in our beautiful home, thanks to Renee Dee!!!"
"Patrick is great to work with. My wife and I are extremely happy with the level of service of he provided. We're first time home buyers, and he was great with walking us through the process and providing sound advice. We never felt pressured in any way, and he was good about giving us his opinion but ultimately letting us make the decision ourselves. I personally appreciate his promptness and quick reply to my questions and requests."
Kheang & Ami Heng | Itasca, IL
"I have known Mary for over a decade, both personally and professionally. We have worked together on dozens and dozens of real estate transactions. The combination of Mary's knowledge of the real estate business, her attention to detail, her wide knowledge of the area as a result of living here her entire life, and her love and passion for her clients, makes recommending her not only a joy but also a privilege. I know that when I recommend Mary to a friend, family member, or client, she will treat them with the greatest of care, demonstrate the highest integrity, and do the best job possible as their real estate advocate. I fully endorse Mary Bremer as a fantastic real estate professional! ."

"Renee was able to take the stress out of first time home buying. She made us feel comfortable with her knowledge of the area and did not overwhelm us with the process of purchasing a home. With both of us working hectic jobs...."
Kim and Arthur, First Time Homebuyers
"My husband and I were looking to sell our townhome which he had owned as a bachelor for over 25 years with very little asthetic upkeep. Although we had done major mechanical upgrades in the last 2 years, we were ready to move out of state and wanted to get the most for our home without losing profit by having to put a huge amount of money into it to make the home appealing to a buyer. Mary came in and went over the home with us, explaining what needed to be done, and how it could be done in a tasteful, yet inexpensive way. She then proceeded to help us get in touch with the right contractors for the work we needed who gave us fantastic prices. In addition to that, Mary herself chipped in and helped me with some of the work herself! In only a few weeks our home was ready to go on the market. With some masterful staging and excellent pricing, Mary had an offer on our house within a week, at only a thousand below our asking price! She is a true gem and her hard work enabled us to purchase our dream home in another state. Mary is a true professional who cares deeply for her clients. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.."
Mary was fantastic! She went above and beyond. She helped us immensely and we sold in record time for a great price. Mary worked with painters, carpet layers, cable company, junk collectors, food banks and charitable organizations

Not only is she a real estate professional, she has broad experience in her past with accounting, mortgages, etc. She was able to incorporate all of those skills into making the transaction easy for me which is what I wanted.
She is also personally delightful and a pleasure to be around. I highly recommend her"
Glen Ellyn Illinois
"Renee is an excellent realtor! She helped us stage our home perfectly, provided a professional photographer, and educated/consulted us throughout the entire selling process. We were able to sell our home at an excellent price in a couple of weeks and she helped us find a new home that we purchased shortly after we sold our home. Highly recommend to anyone looking to buy/sell a home!!!!"
"This was our first home purchase, and Patrick was always available when we had questions about the process. Being new to the area we did not have contacts for people like an inspector or attorney. Patrick was able to suggest individuals that he had worked well with in the past in each of these situations. The recommendations all turned our to be wonderful and as helpful as Patrick himself."

Purchaser in Plainfield
I have had a great experience working with Renee Dee, a realtor with Southwestern Real Estate. November of 2015 Renee found a home that fit most of the things on my check list and in the area I had been hoping for. It had just come on the market and she was quick to check it out for me. With her fast work, I ended the year with a new home. Renee helped me place my town home on the market in Feb., 2016. She did an excellent job of making my town home shine with beautiful pictures and description which was sent out to the public. There was an offer made on my home within 24 hours.
If you are looking to buy or want to sell, I highly recommend Renee Dee. She will work hard for you to narrow down just what it is you want and need.
Renee is not only my realtor, but now a friend

From start to finish you paid attention to every detail, provided any resources needed, and made sure that I was getting the best deals possible. Your advise and encouragement was invaluable. Your resources extend far beyond just buying and selling (lawyer, loan officer, radon services) which created a well-oiled machine that made the entire process so smooth for me
"My experience with Patrick Roach was exactly what I wanted in the house buying process. He is professional, accommodating, and a man of integrity. It was fun and easeful visiting properties with Patrick. Patrick is extremely helpful in figuring out what is best for each individual.

"Patrick was very helpful through our selling and buying processes. He was realistic about pricing our house to sell, and we got an offer within about three months--much faster than many similar homes. He also gave us great advice about how to prepare the house to sell (including paying for a stager to work with us for a few hours). He is personable, easy to work with, very accessible, and a skilled negotiator. He kept us calm when we ran into multiple snags with both our buyers and our sellers, and he worked through those snags smoothly. We always felt he was in our corner."
