Annie, It’s hard to put in words what an outstanding job you did. We are so grateful for helping prepare our condo and getting it sold it in a timely manner. Your outstanding design ability, along with your excellent sales experience was key to a quick sale in a slow winter market. We greatly appreciate how hard you worked, not to mention, your expertise saved the deal when a glitch presented itself. Please know we will highly recommend you to all our friends and family. Thank you again! John & Sandy Lefton (Gold Coast Ambassador House Seller) 2/2018

Annie, I would like to acknowledge the exceptional job that you did in listing and selling our condo at 55 East Erie. This was a second home for us and we had many things distracting us during the sale process—surgery, wedding for our daughter, Company transition, and extensive travel. We were hardly in Chicago at all during this time, and you handled so many things for us that we normally should have been doing as part of the sale. Of course you sold us this property eleven years ago, and you know that you impressed a client when that client comes back to you after so many years. You did not disappoint! The property sold in less than 45 days, and you handled everything seamlessly. You made great recommendations on contractors, attorneys, all of whom were extraordinarily helpful. Your follow through on every detail, keeping us informed in our remote locations was greatly appreciated. Great job!!

Annie, I want you to know how very grateful I am for all you have done to get the Clouser condo ready for sale and now getting it sold in what seems to me to be record time, 2 days! You are truly gifted in your ability to get things done and in your wonderful decorating skills. You did an incredible job making the condo beautiful! We are so lucky to have you as our agent and thank you so much for all the hard work and dedication you had in helping us get the condo sold. You are so amazing! Thank you! Wow! I knew you were good, but you are much better than average! (2017)

I can’t say enough about AB Homes Chicago's attention to detail. I give them 10 stars! While I was out of state they staged and prepared our condo, oversaw the photographer – who took fantastic photos – and found a client who paid full price before our condo went on the market. This team is a go getter. I highly recommend AB Homes Chicago....and, are consummate professionals! River North (2017)

I had worked with a few other people before but they did not seem to understand what I was looking for and showed me things I had no interest in. I was also impressed with how quickly and effectively Annie was able to expedite the details of getting the lease contract completed. We are absolutely loving the condo and it is working out perfectly for us.
Christi Andrzejewski(Happy Gold Coast Buyers)
Annie Alexander is fantastic!! Annie is always available and she goes above and beyond the call of duty. I've bought and sold two condos in Chicago, and worked with Annie both times. I will not work with any other realtor. She let us know exactly what we needed to do in order to get our places in tip-top shape to grab buyer’s attention. Annie oversaw the preparation work and went the extra mile to help with virtual staging and capture the best photos. These were important aspects to persuade buyers to see the property. She is a dream to work with, and her sparkling personality makes any of the stresses of buying or selling a condo seem not so bad! We love you. 2017
Michael BoccioVP, McDonald’s N. America Business Team Lead / OSI Group, LLC
Annie, once again, thank you for the many years of ongoing real estate service. You continually exceed our expectations. We truly appreciate the sincere care and excellent recommendations you provide us. You’re professionalism, experience, resourcefulness and calm demeanor is comforting and takes a lot of stress out of what is an otherwise stressful situation. Living and moving throughout the Gold Coast, the design expertise and recommendations you have provided us throughout our moves have been invaluable. The vendor recommendations you have provided to us to prepare our home for the market have also been top quality and appreciated. Please enjoy the bubbly as a token of our appreciation...! Michael & Sophia Wong Boccio, Gold Coast
Annie went beyond the service I've ever received from any real estate broker. She provided reliable vendors preparing my penthouse condo for sale. I was reluctant spending money preparing the unit as she suggested, however, she was spot on. I received a higher offer than I expected the first day it went on the market. Annie helped oversee the painting/staging. Go with Annie, and listen to her advice. WOW! Annie cares about her clients. Thank you! Yelena Kovelman - Happy Lakeview Seller 2016
Annie helped us purchase a Chicago condo. I live in New York, so I relied on her heavily to ensure that we found a home which met all our criteria. Before the purchase, she provided us with information about neighborhoods, comparables, and research on specific buildings. After the offer contract was signed, she stayed in constant communication to ensure that the closing went smoothly. She recommended home inspectors and a real estate lawyer. Annie is professional, efficient, and friendly. She went above and beyond what you may expect an agent to do. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Annie made the process smooth and pleasant. - Streeterville Buyer - 2/23/2016

Annie, Thank you for selling our condo and helping us find our new home. We found you to be extremely professional, hardworking, and patient. During the sale and purchase of our condo you had our best interest in mind throughout the process. Your negotiation skills far surpassed our expectation. We feel comfortable and confident to recommend you to our friends and family as our realtor. - Ambassador House Seller & Water Tower Buyer
Annie, you are so kind to my girls. We were all impressed how quickly you took charge selecting the carpet, overseeing the installation, painter and cleaning crew prior to listing it. We loved the idea adding virtual staging. Thank you so much for all your work – we ALL really appreciate it! - 01/2017
Magdalena PalkaGOLD COAST BUYER AND SELLER
Annie went beyond my expectation as my real estate broker. She listed my condo for both sale and lease after I moved to California and it took her only 4 days to lease it at a higher price than I expected! Selling my condo with a tenant in place was not as easy task. She did an outstanding job negotiating the sale. Additionally, she did an amazing job preparing the property for photo shoot and showings. I recommend Annie to anyone looking for a solid ethical broker! Happy Seller.

I wanted something unique and probably not an easy find… The coach home she found was one of a kind. In no time I was moved in, not to mention how pleasant she was to work with. I enjoy my new home and recommend Annie and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell your property. - GOLD COAST COACH HOME BUYER
Anthony J. SpataDirector of Environmental Services / Chipman Adams Architects
With my relocation scheduled to occur in less than sixty days, the need to quickly sell my property to facilitate the purchase of a larger one was paramount. To complicate things, the real estate market was favoring buyers and I was out-of-state… Annie and her team provided great service in establishing a fair selling price, marketing the property, qualifying perspective purchasers, and ultimately, closing in less than forty-five days… - RIVER NORTH
David HunterPresident / Pilot Marketing
After having my property on the market for 341 days, I called Annie and her team to discuss how we could work together and still get the best price for my condominium. They convinced me to stage my home… five days after the staging was completed we had an offer for more than I had received in the 341 days… I am very happy seller…
Alex MajorAccount Manager / CDW Government Inc.
This was my first experience buying a home. Annie helped me find apartments that met my criteria and helped me understand what I should look for and NOT settle for in a condo. She has networks throughout the market place, Mortgage Broker, Lawyer, Inspectors and Contractors etc. I always felt like Annie was in my corner, looking out for my best interests. If this is your first time buying a home, I would highly recommend working with Annie. It worked out great for me!
Stephany HongLOOP BUYER
My friend referred me to Annie and I’m so thankful she did. Annie was amazing from beginning to end. As a first time buyer, there was so much I didn’t know and she guided me through the whole process making sure I covered every step. Annie is definitely a seasoned expert in the market and was able to answer every question and was able to refer me to the right people whenever I needed something. She was great with communication and was extremely responsive at all times. I really appreciated that she listened to what I wanted in a home and never tried to push a home on me just to get a sale. She is a great mix of professional, personable, and sharp. I couldn’t be happier with Annie and would confidently recommend her to anyone looking for a great realtor. - 2/2015 (Loop Property)
Nancy KleinauGOLD COAST SELLER
Annie did a tremendous job selling my Chicago home. My mother was a realtor, so I had high expectations. Her sales and negotiation skills are exceptional. She helped me understand that spending money on preparing my property for the market is essential in today’s market. It paid off! There is no other Chicago agent I would consider for my real estate needs - 6/2014
Bill EvashevskiGOLD COAST BUYER AND SELLER
Annie asked me questions ahead of time so that she knew what kind of condo I was looking for… She provided me with comps of similar units in the building and area… After the 4th showing, she submitted and negotiated an acceptable offer… She took care of the paperwork throughout the sale… Annie cares about her clients’ well being.
Lynda KelchGold Coast Ambassador House
Annie helped me sell my parent’s Gold Coast condo. I live in the suburbs with limited time to travel into the city. Annie handled the paperwork for the condo association and building manager, had additional keys made, inspection, final walk through, and attending the closing on my behalf. Her availability and knowledge was invaluable. I definitely recommend Annie. - 7/6/2015
