“We decided to work with Yvonne Carns because of her successful experience in selling Rogers Park properties, her engaging manner, her scrupulous values, and her straightforward, professional approach.
When we met Yvonne for the first time, we made it clear to her that in addition to selling our house quickly and for as much as possible, we wanted an agent to be there for us 24-7 answering our questions and concerns and just generally being available to us during such a stressful time.
Yvonne explained in detail what services she would provide, including being available on a daily basis from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., being present for all showings, sitting for more open houses and for longer hours that any other agent we knew, providing a virtual tour on the internet, and advertising in as many publications and as often as we mutually deemed necessary.
She also made practical suggestions about what we should to do make our house more saleable, and she spoke candidly about current real estate values as well as verities in the marketplace that would affect our asking price. We were impressed by her warmth and openness, as well as her obvious skill. When she finished, we were convinced that she would be our full-time advocate, and successfully sell our house.
And indeed, she was and she did. As a matter of fact, she sold our house in 45 days to a suitable buyer at a price that was acceptable to us. During the process, she was understanding when we got frustrated, she was firm when we were unrealistic, and she was helpful when we had concerns. Yvonne was professional at all times, and she made the experience pleasant and even fun at times.
With her winning personality, honesty, and professionalism, it is not surprising that Yvonne is so successful. We gladly recommend her as an agent to anyone who is buying or selling property.”

Yvonne helped us to find our first home this winter. We were very pleased with her throughout the process. We were particularly struck by her very calming, not "salesy" realism as we encountered the ups and downs of different properties we were looking at. She was very friendly, very knowledgeable, and helped educate us about everything that we needed to know. I'm not sure if we are high maintenance clients or not, but Yvonne definitely made herself available and even adjusted her travel plans to accommodate a last-minute showing (of the property we ended up purchasing). She also wasn't afraid to fight for us and got us a much better deal than we were expecting to get. We definitely would recommend her to friends and family because of her knowledge, poise, negotiation acumen, and the fact that it is really fun to drive around and look at properties with her. Yvonne also adheres to her professional code of ethics much more appropriately than other realtors. She worked really well with our mortgage broker and gave us great recommendations for other services we needed. Thanks Yvonne for helping us find the perfect first home for a great deal!

Yvonne has been my real estate agent for the last 8 years. Each and every time I need something Yvonne is always there to give me
top-notch customer service.
We are now looking for a new home and like a true professional Yvonne is there to help me with my search. She answers phone calls and emails in a timely manner and always has my best interest at heart. She really specializes in the North Shore and Rogers Park area but she knows a lot about a lot of areas as well.
The best thing about Yvonne is that she really listens to what we want. She knows what are deal breakers before she even shows us something. I have Yvonne on speed dial for friends as well. She is a must have in your contact list! No BS, honest truth. Love that in business these days.

Yvonne has been my Realtor for 6 years and counting. She helped me find my first place and is currently helping me sell that same place for a very nice profit. If you want someone who will maximize the value of your home or who will help break down the extensive process in finding the right home, Yvonne is as good as it gets. She will sit down with you for as long as it takes to completely understand what you want, and she will go on as many visits as necessary until you find exactly what you want. If you are inexperienced (as I was when I began looking at real estate 6 years ago), she will inspect every home she visits with you and will make you aware of everything from evidence of past flood damage to the age of the appliances to evidence of pest problems. Again, if you want to hear that every home is perfect and that every house is your perfect house, then go find that money-hungry agent...there are certainly enough out there. If you want honesty, transparency, and open communication in a very confusing market, Yvonne is your realtor.
