Our Testimonials

 

 

 

My husband and I were upside down on our house.  After seeking legal advice we were told the best solution for us would be to put the house up for sale through a short sale.  We were referred to Lisa Wenzel owner of Wenzel Select Properties because her specialty is short sales. 

 

Lisa was extremely helpful and made us feel very comfortable and confident about the entire short-sale process.  Lisa is a delightful lady and expert in her field – she was always letting us know what was happening and when.  Very professional and a joy to work with.

 

We are excited about working with Lisa again when we purchase our next home.

We had been looking for a place since May 2013 but no one was really helping us until we met Christine Leonchik and she came to our aid!  We had two previous realtors that didn't help us at all.   

 

Thank you so very much Christine for helping us find our new home!

"Lisa Wenzel and her team at Wenzel Select Properties did a terrific job in finding the right tenant for Gregers, LLC.  After having been through a very challenging situation with a previous tenant, Lisa understood the concerns that went along with prospecting to sign a new lease.  Lisa was instrumental in developing a plan for screening prospective tenants that ultimately led to a Gregers, LLC signing a lease with a wonderful family.  We are grateful to Lisa and her team for all her help and hard work!

Lisa was wonderful to work with when my husband and I were moving my mother in-law from her home in Florida to a condo in Burr Ridge, so she could be closer to us.  Not only was Lisa extremely thorough making sure we saw all of the Condo’s in the community my mother in-law wanted to move in to, she was able to negotiate better pricing than we thought imaginable.

I have referred her to others and they absolutely love her too!

Lisa was in control of the process from the very beginning.  She responded to our calls and emails promptly regardless of the time of day, or day of the week.  We received an offer within a week, and Lisa expertly guided us through several rounds of negotiation.  Lisa won our confidence with her energy, commitment, and knowledge; we would highly recommend her.

As first time homebuyers we started our journey unsure of exactly how the whole process works. Thankfully we were introduced to Lisa with Wenzel Properties and she helped us get rolling on finding a home just right for us. After providing our criteria we were set up to use Wenzel Properties' online system which allowed us to review and select homes we were interested in. We even received email alerts when properties were added or revised. This system helped us greatly in our search. As a result we found many homes that were of interest and we didn't have to spend hours and hours traveling from house to house.
 
After Lisa took us out to see our selected properties we decided to go with a HUD home which everyone knows can be a hassle, but Lisa was there with us every step of the way and stayed on HUD's affiliates to keep the process moving. From the first day we met Lisa we knew we had a keeper and she didn't disappoint. Wenzel Select Properties helped us find and close the deal on a house we are now happy to call our home.

"Lisa helped my wife and I find a rental property in the Chicago area. We moved from Texas and had no idea where to start looking. Lisa was very helpful in helping us select the right suburb to suit our preferences, and found us an amazing place we can call home for now. Since she was such a great help, and a lot of fun to work with, we will be contacting her when we are ready to purchase a home in the future. I highly recommend working with Lisa if you are in the Chicago Real Estate market and want an agent that is a pleasure to work with!!"

Lisa answered my e-mail request for help in finding a rental house in the Downers Grove area.  Upon our arrival Lisa had a number of places for me to look at and she was very helpful.  She drove me around and found us a place in just a few days.  She was professional and friendly and I feel I have made a friend for life.

“My husband and I enthusiastically recommend buying or selling a home through Lisa Wenzel. Buying or selling a home can be very complicated and stressful. Lisa's very personal involvement and dedication to helping her clients attain their hopes and dreams are what make her stand out. She was there for us from start to finish; being accessible and consultative throughout the process. We probably couldn't have made our home buying dreams possible without her no-nonsense advice, razor-sharp market knowledge, and enthusiastic commitment to helping us.

Well it has been just over two months since we bought out house here in Franklin Park.  And I'm sure you will be happy to know that everything is going very well ... in fact, Li and I are both really, REALLY, happy right now.  We were both thinking recently about how, at this time last year, we were just about starting our grand house-hunting adventure (remember trudging through the snow?!  all the shady characters we encountered?).  Now, we're in our new house, and as I said, we are so happy with the way things turned out.

We've done quite a bit of work already (and spent a ton of money).  Li insisted on getting carpets, so we had the upstairs done.  She and I changed the locks, and I had a colleague help me with the painting (goodbye, clown-blue!  hello teal).  We got some furniture from IKEA, some from elsewhere ... a lot of it we put together ourselves to save money.  You really wouldn't believe it Lisa but I have become quite handy with a toolset in just a short while ... just like Freddy!

We're pretty much settled in nice and comfy now.  On our occasional days off together, we'll go walking around the lovely downtown area (lol, okay it's quite hideous, but we try really hard to think of it as lovely) ... or hop on the Metra which is just a block away, and ride it to the Mag Mile or Chinatown.  On cooler days we just stay in with a movie and cook ourselves something to eat.  Li's cooking hasn't gotten any better.  But MINE certainly has improved.  And I'm learning how to use a crockpot!  The neighborhood is nice and quiet and the neighbors are friendly ... just like we

wanted.  I don't want to sound like a broken record here, but we couldn't be happier.

Anyway I just wanted to let you know how things were going ... and to let you know that I so appreciate everything you did for us and I won't forget it.  I know I'm bad with responding to emails / text messages / voicemails etc., but between the two of us, Lisa, I really do believe that we wouldn't be where we are today if it weren't for you.  I remember when we were going through that whole thing with my grandfather and Li and I were debating, like "Well do we really need Lisa?" and I was like: "YES!  She's the only person I trust in this damn thing."  And all this time later,

I know that I was right to feel that way.

I hope everything's well with you and that you are enjoying the recent rebound in the market (but not too much, you always did work too much).  Next time you see Tina and Debbie, tell them we said hello.  Take care of yourself and thanks again for everything.

Fond Regards,

The Peralta’s

 

 

 

Lisa is very knowledgeable about real estate and knows how to discuss matters while making the client feel equally involved in the process.

When we were looking to buy our first house neither of us knew a lot about the process, and we didn’t know how to find a good realtor. One day we came across the Wenzel Select Properties site. We decided to meet with Lisa, and that was the best decision we could have made. She was exactly what we needed. Lisa was upfront and honest about what she saw in the houses. She was tireless in helping us find the perfect house; we looked at around fifty houses before deciding on the one we bought. She took us step by step through the process in an easy to understand, friendly manner. Lisa was also very accommodating with our schedules, gladly meeting with us late at night and on weekends. Overall, the experience with Lisa and Wenzel Select Properties was a great one. We highly recommend the Wenzels to anyone looking to buy or sell property.

I met Lisa several years ago and was immediately impressed by her enthusiasm and her entrepreneurial spirit. 

 

Recently I had Lisa help me with a condo I had to sell, and was very concerned about how long it would take in today’s market.  Lisa offered a realistic plan to getting it sold, to include working with a professional stager, and within three months of having it listed we had a solid offer, despite the large number of units also for sale in the complex.  It was also slightly complicated because it was a short sale and a reverse mortgage. Lisa got the deal closed within 60 days!

 

If you want the job done professionally and you want to work with someone who knows how to get the job done, Lisa is the one to call.

 

-Marianne Yurko

 

 

 

You are the best!  You did the job of the attorneys the bank people, the appraisal guy and anyone else!  You did it all and your constant faith helped you through that painful short sale process!  You are simply the best as Tina Turner sings!!!

 

-Galina Buckhout

 

 

 

I have had difficulty renting my condo in the past, but this time because Lisa was in charge, the condo was rented in less than a month and for a 2 year lease. Because I live out of state, Lisa worked closely with me to get the condo ready - new paint throughout and everything sparkling clean. When we had an emergency due to leakage, Lisa was at the condo within an hour to correct the problem.

I highly recommend Lisa for your realty needs whether it be listing your home to sell or to rent.

Lisa Wenzel is a outstanding and wonderful realtor to whom I would recommend to everyone because she has not only helped my husband and I search for our first home, but has become such a great friend to have. In the past two years, she always is available if you have any questions or if you just want to call and just talk to see how everything is going. She definitely deserves and outstanding award for her overall work that she puts in day in and day out and is willing to help find you the place of your dreams. I remember when she was working with other clients besides me and she still made us feel like we were the only ones and not only working during the week but on the weekends as well. She is an individual who I feel should be recognized for her talent that she puts into her work and her overall friendliness to her clients. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that I know who is having trouble searching for a home.

 

Thanks,

Lisa did a fabulous job in helping me secure a rental property in Chicago, a city in which I had never lived in before. I had a comprehensive list of requirements and features that were important to me. Lisa helped me to find a place that satisfied each of my search criterions and did so under an extremely tight deadline. Lisa also was extremely effective in the negotiation's process. Lisa is optimistic, encouraging, determined, and mighty cheerful. I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends.

"In today's housing market, selling a home seems like an impossible task. At least it was for our first realtor, but having switched to Lisa, we saw an immediate change. She worked much harder and was more dedicated to selling our home. This was refreshing experience and gave us hope that we would actually sell our home after it being on the market for a couple of years. I don't think we could have sold our home without her.

 

Thank you Lisa!"

“Lisa and her staff had done a wonderful job of assisting us with putting a home on the market - then when the market tanked, she worked with us to place a renter in our property in record time. She is excellent with follow thru and communication.

Dependable, trust-worthy, diligent, fun, straight forward, great negotiator. Couldn't have bought my condo without her.

We bought our first home with the help of Lisa and things just went so fast. We put our offer in and it was accepted immediately.  Our closing was complete within two weeks and in the house quicker than I could imagine. Thank you Lisa for a great job.  We love our house!

"When we decided to purchase our first home together, we immediately chose Lisa Wenzel and Wenzel Select Properties. We felt confident our needs as buyers would be addressed during the entire process. Lisa was extremely knowledgeable and professional. She understood the market and found compatible listings based on our needs. Lisa displayed superior negotiating skills which concluded in a mutual agreement between both parties. We highly recommend Lisa Wenzel and Wenzel Select Properties for any prospective buyer--they will put you first."

I contacted Lisa from Georgia when I found out I would be attending school in the Chicago area. She was such a pleasure to work with. When none of the properties worked out from the first day of showings, she set up some last minute showings before we flew back to GA. When we found a place, she took care of everything and kept in constant communication. I would definitely recommend her as an agent, very professional and a delightful person!!

Lisa was great. Got us a great house and showed my wife all around the area.

I have worked with Wenzel Select Properties a number of times over the past few years in both, selling and buying a home as well as listing rental properties.  It has always been a smooth experience.  I have never worked with another realtor as professional and reliable as Lisa.  When selling our first home it was on the market and we had an offer in less than one week!

 

- Amy Sullivan

 

 

 

Lisa, I wanted send you a note about how pleased I was with your companies guidance in the sale of my home.  It was with your expertise that within days of me saying "I need to sell my home quickly" you did it within 60 days.

Again thank you and I will always recommend your company.

-Mark & Diane Frankel

 

 

 

Lisa, thank you for getting our home sold on Thomas Avenue.  We really appreciated all of your good help and all of your up to date communication throughout this transaction.  Hopefully someday our paths will cross again!
