Lee gave us, her clients, her full attention and had our best interests at heart. She was always responsive whenever we needed to get in touch with her. She is results oriented
and we were pleased working with us to sell our house.
We were very satisfied with Lee as our agent.
Lee Grosky is very good at what she does, and I highly recommend her when selling your house. She knows her stuff from staging your house to negotiating with buyers. You will be pleased you hired Lee during this very stressful time in your life. - Janet Rothkopf, Skokie, September 2017
This review is for Maria Youkhana for her knowledge and understanding of the real estate market. I didn't know any real estate agent when I decided to sell my house. I went to the Century 21st office, and met Maria. At our first meeting, I was amazed by her quick response. I left everything in her hands and moved to another state. I received calls and updates from her almost everyday to let me know what was going on and what the next plan is. At the time of the closing, she picked me up and dropped me back home from the title company. She helped everything go smoothly. I had a wonderful experience working with Maria. - Shaheen Akbany morton G July 2017
John definitely relieved the stresses of home buying, he understood the Chicago neighborhoods and tidbits on how to find the house we were looking for. Regardless of the distance he had to travel to see a house with us, he was there early a gave us input on the houses - Daniel Duque, Chicago July 2017
She was honest on estimating the sale price based on facts that she provided to support the selling price.
Once we received the offer the closing was done in 4 weeks. - Sonia Holler June 2017
As an absentee owner needing to sell a single family residence in Morton Grove, I traveled there in June to take possession and get it listed for sale. I met him on a Monday. By the time I left the following Monday, he had put me together with the contractors who then put the house in a condition to sell.
Mr. Marino exhibited professionalism and substantial local knowledge during our first meeting and he suggested certain improvements (remove carpet and vinyl tiles to expose and then recondition hardwood floors, update the kitchen, bathrooms and full basement including separate living quarters and laundry area, numerous repairs and fresh paint throughout to get the house in a good condition to market AND he went well beyond my expectations by introducing me to and then managing the tradesmen who ultimately did the work. Mr. Marino's assistance in getting the property ready to show was extraordinary. He knew whom to call for the various tasks and he saw to it that they completed the work, all with in period of just 6 weeks or so.
Once the house was ready to be shown, we received numerous offers and reached agreement with the Buyer within a week for a transaction that closed within the month I cannot speak highly enough of Mr. Marino's services as my agent.
He was the best! - Walt Stringfellow, San C September 2016
Joe was awesome! I can't say enough good things about his work ethic, experience, and helpfulness. He guided us through the entire sales process, made valuable recommendations, and was able to sell our home very quickly and at an acceptable price. He followed up on everything from start to finish and it was a pleasure working with him. I would highly recommend him to anyone who asked for a referral. - Beverly Shunick - Morton August 2016
I hired Linda to sell my father's home because she was the one who helped my wife and I buy OUR home in nearby Morton Grove some ago. I knew her and felt comfortable with her. I had never sold real estate before. But Linda did an excellent job guiding me through the process. I would certainly recommend her for residential transactions in the Skokie/Morton Grove area. - Robert Erickson, Morton July 2016
I cannot thank Maria Youkhana enough for all of her efforts while my family and I were trying to find the perfect home within our budget. The patience, friendliness and knowledge of this woman are surreal. I have and always will brag about her as our realtor/hero And will continue to recommend her to anyone and everyone in their home buying or selling experience. Home buying or selling is one of the most personal and important purchases in one's lifetime and I would recommend no one other than Maria Youkhana. - Roni A November 2016

We had two other offers with another agent who did not follow through, resulting in loss on sale. After giving the contract to Nick Marino, the offer came within 4 weeks. He followed through and made it a success.
Thanks to Nick for his help.

Linda answers my calls in a timely manner. She is very considerate about my work hours and very accommodating with my requests. - A April 2015
I am delighted to provide this testimony. On two occasions now, you acted on my behalf to market and sell two homes, one in Chicago and one in Morton Grove. I could not be more happy with the excellent service you provided. Your enthusiasm and friendly approach is truly appreciated. Your ability to communicate with me clearly and concisely is a rare attribute in business today. I feel like I have been partnering not only with a true professional, but that I have made a new friend in the process.
Thank you, John!
Wishing you all the best,

Tina was very professional and easy to work with. She shared all of her knowledge with us and found us a buyer within two days. Wow, that was great as I was being transferred to Tampa for my job. - Dan Cadogan, Palm Harbor July 2016
Nick Marino was very knowledgeable about the Morton Grove real estate market and was very helpful on upgrades to our house that needed to be made before putting it on the market. He was very professional in keeping us informed about potential sale activity with the house and also helping with some difficult issues with the Buyers, Buyer's real estate broker, Buyer loan company which helped to keep the sale moving forward and to our satisfaction. I would highly recommend Century 21 Marion real estate. - Dave Heuck September 2015
