"Joan Conlisk is a wonderful person to work with. The minute we met, I knew she was smart and trustworthy. She went ABOVE and BEYOND helping our family sell our home. She always responded immediately to any questions we had, whether it was by phone, email or text. There was never a moment that we didn't know what was happening throughout the entire process. I really appreciated her sensitivity to our unique situation. I also felt totally confident with her knowledge of the Real Estate market on the North Shore. With that being said, our house sold in a week! She knew how to price it and market it! I would highly recommend Joan Conlisk whether you are buying or selling. On top of it all, she is delightful to work with."   - Katy and Jim Jansen, Glenview 

"We were lucky enough to connect with Joan Conlisk. Joan was ready to go, always with her high energy and positive attitude. She made the process so much easier.  We listed my Mother's home in early May and the closing took place in mid-August. Joan was there every step of the way. She was always available for any questions or concerns. Her communication and follow-up was phenomenal. She came up with many helpful suggestions and her expertise was second to none. I have already passed her name along and will continue to do so. Joan made this process so simple and I am truly grateful for everything she did for us."   -Kim Schaffner, Highland Park 

"I am delighted to have the opportunity to recommend Joan Conlisk. I worked with her recently on a house search. I found her extremely responsive to my concerns, insightful, and on a personal level, a delight to be with."    -Ellen Robinson, Glencoe

"I worked with Joan to find a new house under a very tight deadline. She listened to our needs and immediately started locating a number of good choices, which we toured in a whirlwind two day marathon. When it came down to make a decision, she logically summarized the pros and cons of the top two choices, and provided her opinion. We agreed, and then Joan negotiated the transaction. We couldn't be happier with our new house in Wilmette."  - Simon Ward, Wilmette

"Thank you for your persistence in helping me find a rental that I will be able to call home while commuting between Ohio and Chicago. Your perseverance has paid off and I would recommend you at any time. Please feel free to use me as a reference. Nataly was kind enough to recommend you to me I would be happy to do the same for others."  - Catherine Sexton

"Joan Conlisk was heads above all of the other realtors we have previously worked with in the North Shore Chicago area. She was professional and great to work with. She has extensive marketing expertise, excellent communication skills, staging expertise, and local market knowledge. She offered creative approaches to market our home as part of a well developed plan. We appreciated her "home owner" advice from start to finish on the process. Highly recommend her and would use her again ourselves without hesitation." - Mary and Mike Eckenrod, Lake Bluff

"Joan brings years of experience to her work in real estate. She's thorough and conscientious with a meticulous attention to detail, which is so crucial to real estate. She knows the market well. We felt that she always had our interests and needs foremost at all times, working to help us get maximum value in our transaction. Something that we felt sets Joan above the rest is her enthusiasm, and her wonderful, very appropriate, sense of humor that was so helpful when things were a bit rocky as they always are at times in real estate dealings. Ethical, smart and experienced, Joan's a winner. We'd absolutely work with her again and recommend her without reservation." - Ken Casey and David Dailey
