Testimonials

Lisa has helped me three times in the last 10 years. Twice to purchase and once to sell a home. After working with Lisa, I couldn't imagine hiring another realtor. She is professional, knowledgeable and truly a pleasure to work with. She makes buying/selling a cake walk!

Selling a house in Illinois when you now live in AZ was a daunting undertaking that was made amazingly simple with Lisa's and her assistant Jessica's expertise. They could not have been any more helpful from guiding us through the forms that had to be filled out on the computer to overseeing a new  roof installation and interior painting. They went way above and beyond the norm to make sure that selling our home was simple and stress free for us. We are very grateful for all they did and would not hesitate to recommend them.

I was very pleased at the over all experience of working with Lisa. it was sold in a very short period of time. she came up with a good listing price and keep us informed the entire time that the house was listed.

Lisa did a great job. Very knowledgeable and knows the business. Thank you so much for getting my family into our dream home. You are the best. Helped us sell a special property.

Lisa did an excellent job of pointing out what we needed to fix to make our home show and sell quickly. She did a wonderful job of answering all of our questions, promoting our home and negotiating the sale. She is excellent at what she does - SELL HOMES!!

It is always an honor and privilege to work with you in any capacity. It was a joy to be able to help your family purchase this lovely vacant lot near you for space and potential. Appreciate your ability to make quick decisions for you to be able to secure your purchase. Thank you again!

Lisa sold our home in TWO days!!!! Lisa was amazing! Highly recommend her to anyone. She is extremely nice and pleasant to work with. She will be completely honest and straight with you.

Lisa Sanford helped us with the sale of our Kankakee home. We heard wonderful things about her going into the process, and everything was confirmed. What set her apart was her and assistant's dedication to the smallest details. Their communication and response time was also fantastic. We would highly recommend her without reservation.

Lisa's work was really a W O W factor.!!!!!!! She started with advise, then we signed the contract to have her sell my property on 9/20/17. We had an offer on 9/26/17. All of the contract was within the boundaries we had previously agreed. The transaction would have closed 10/27/17, but the  buyer's lender "goofed" and the closing was postponed until 10/31/17. WHAT A FANTASTIC SERVICE BY LISA and her assistant.

Friendly, warm, and personable professional attitude throughout. Biggest help to us was comments on preparation of house for market and realistic pricing.

I cannot say enough positive comments about Lisa Sanford and her excellent service. Lisa went out of her way to find us the perfect home; even finding one that was not yet on the market; to showing up the day we moved here with donuts and answers to every one of the million questions we hard.

We used Lisa to sell my Mom's house; which she did in four days! She's a total professional, but at the same time very friendly and easy to talk to. I would recommend her with no hesitation at all.

We found you to be professional, enthusiastic, and very attuned to our needs and likes. You and your staff were very accommodating.

Lisa, I appreciate your commitment to excellence in everything you do. You let Morris and I know that it was a priority for you to see that our 'seller' needs were met and that our questions were answered. I've always known you were a professional .. now I have experienced your professionalism.

Lisa, thanks for everything! Dawn and I felt very confident throughout that you would take care of us. No matter what the issue, you showed genuine care & concern for our needs. You 'held our hand' through the learning process without diminishing any of our issues. You were very thorough and informative regarding the whole process of building a home. The contract rider you provided included many items that we would have overlooked and missed out on. It was impressive and comforting that you made yourself available any time, at any hour, and that you would get the builder on the phone instantly to resolve an issue. We look forward to working with you in the future.

All the details were covered. As inexperienced sellers you made us feel comfortable with the process. Selling in 24 hours was a plus! Thank you!

You were professional, available & flexible. We knew we had the best agent in Kankakee County advocating for us. Our home was listed on 08/15/05 and we closed on 09/22/05. It doesn't get much better than that! Thanks for being so available (reviewing offers from your boat dock!). You explained everything to us thoroughly when we had questions & we had many. We knew that we had the best--Thanks so much.

Lisa provided us with just the right marketing and marketing advice, from pricing the house to advertising it on her website. Lisa and/or Julianne her assistant were always east to reach too.

You knew exactly what kind of house I wanted, and even when my condominium didn't sell immediately, you kept right on looking. I remember your email, which said, "I think I found it!" I appreciate all your help in making this move happen. And Julianne is a pleasure to work with too! Thank you!

Profession, efficient, friendly, pleasant almost a stress free experience.

Lisa - Dennis and I have nothing but good things to say about you. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks, and if the need arises for us- we will be calling you. You weren't only my realtor you are also a friend. Thanks again for everything.

It was so nice to hear you upbeat, positive voice on the phone when you call to update us, or to ask about anything. It helped us feel better in this rough market and always gave us hope. Thanks!!!

Lisa, I appreciated your frequent "keeping in touch" phone calls- always so timely and informative. I know you were working hard to get my house sold and you did it in record time.

You did a great job showing us the community and giving us comfort in the area. You kept the focus on homes that met the criteria we were looking for i.e. price, bedrooms, etc...

Lisa- You and your team give everything you have to the customer. It's not just buying or selling homes, it's making dreams come true.

Lisa is very personable, precise, persistent, and knows how to close the deal. She always keeps us in the "know

Lisa worked with us long distance and did everything and more than we expected. If you are "out of town" and need a realtor she is top notch!!

Lisa knew all the answers to all the questions we had, or knew how to find the answers. She worked long hours, always with a smile, for her customers.

Lisa is fast, efficient, and assertive. She guided us to make modifications on the property to facilitate the sale. Lisa and Julianne gave their best efforts in selling our property. Overall, we are very pleased and have already recommended you to others.

I was extremely please with the services rendered the on the purchase of my home in Bourbonnais. You did a great job in handling all the details, and keeping on top of things, even when the closing on the home I was selling was delayed at the last minute. Thanks for a job well done!

You're extremely knowledgeable and ready to work to sell a house. I felt you marketed the property great and stayed on top of things until it sold!

You think outside the box, the bus tour was a really nice idea.

The quality of communication can make or break any transaction. Both Lisa and Julianne are excellent communicators - knowledgeable, timely, concise, precise, and very personable.

Lisa - Once again you proved why you are a top, if not THE TOP realtor in our area! We were proud to tell others of your hard and steadfast determination to get that SOLD sign out in fornt of our home! It's good to have a set of level shoulders to lean on when the emotions of selling a beloved home to "strangers" get in the way! You "got ur dun" and we thank you for that.

We were just amazed at how Lisa sold our house in one showing! She really listens and seems to know what people are looking for. We never even put a sign in the yard or got to list it! In today's market that speaks volumes! Thank you Lisa!

Very knowledgeable, always upbeat, and easy to work with. Your experience and kindness make me feel comfortable and confidant. I am always happy to have you on my side of the table.

Thank you for taking your time in finding the right family to purchase our home. No matter what you never stopped looking.

Lisa is outstanding in her field and goes out of her way to help and is always available.

We had a house that I was concerned would be difficult to sell. Lisa had it sold within 3 weeks of it hitting the market. Her valuation and marketing of the property could not have been better.

Lisa kept me appraised of all things happening with the sale of my home. She was informative and answered all my questions about the sale process. She responded to emails, texts, and calls right away. Very personal and friendly.

I would highly recommend Lisa as your agent for buying and selling your home. Her experience as a realtor is evident in negotiating for a new home; knowing numerous people to contact to expedite the process of purchasing a home and getting current home ready to put on the market. She responds to any questions that may arise during the process on the same day. She is truly an amazing realtor.

She is a very true, down to earth person to work with. We could tell she truly cared about finding us the right home. Anytime we wanted to see a property, Lisa always delivered fast. If you want to experience a real estate agent that is not just there for a check, make sure you choose Lisa Sandford, this lady is very awesome. We loved her!

Lisa is interested in getting to know her clients well and serving them in a personal way. She is very kind and cares about getting her clients the best deal possible. She is very knowledgeable, and seems to have connections everywhere. I would fully trust her to help me buy or sell again!

Lisa is the greatest realtor in the business. I have dealt with her on numerous occasions selling and also buying. You can not ask for anyone more professional in the field. Do not hesitate to call her whether you are buying from another realtor or not it would be in your best interest to have her on your side to make sure things go smoothly on your behalf. And seeing you can’d find a more aggressive realtor.

Lisa and her staff are very good in all aspects of the Real Estate Profession. They are exceptional in communicating with their clients. They kept me up to date every time there was something going on with the sale of the house. They also gave me good feedback after a showing, letting us know what the potential buyer thought. I would recommend Lisa and her team to anyone buying or selling a home.

Lisa has helped me with several transactions and all have been extremely constructive transitions. The most noteworthy is the sale of our last home which my wife and I attempted ourselves. After 14 months of no avail, frustrating deals, Lisa was able to sell within 7 days of listing. She brings an ample amount of experience and trustworthiness to the marketplace and I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell real estate. Thank you Lisa for all that you have done for me.

Lisa was wonderful to work with. She was always willing to work around my schedule. She made suggestions for improvements to help my house sell quickly. Buying and selling was a very positive experience with Lisa and her staff.

Working with Lisa (and her staff) was very easy. Lisa was very knowledgeable about the different properties. She helped us to both sell our old home and find a new one in just a few weeks. We especially appreciated her quick responses to emails, phone calls, and texts during the day and evening hours.

Lisa has a lot of experience in real estate. She is hardworking. She is a good and nice person. She stays on top of your property to get it sold. Lisa keeps you informed and lets you know what is going on with your property. We would recommend Lisa to sell your property.

Lisa Sanford is a professional and personal agent. She is very knowledgeable and knows her business. It had been some years since we had bought a home in this area but she gave me names and numbers of people who she recommended from her experiences. We found a great lender, Tim Ireland, from Midland States Bank. Tim spoke highly of Lisa, so we knew then that she definitely was the right person for us. At one time, Tim hadn't responded to two of my emails (somehow they hadn't went thru - he wasn't ignoring me). I mention it to Lisa while we were at the house we were going to place a bid on (and eventually buy). She immediately contacts him and I swear within minutes; he contacted me apologizing profusely. Now that's impressive!!! She gets answers to your questions and always responds quickly. Everything was basically done via email or texts. Not like the old days when you would have to wait days to hear back about a bid, etc. For some years now we have known Lisa's husband, Walter Sanford. She is as pleasant and professional to work with, just like Walter. Thank you Sanford's for your kindness over the years!!

Lisa sold two properties for me with 1300 miles between us! The first had an offer the first week on the market, the second had an offer quickly after her suggested improvements were made. She knows the market and has an eye for what needs to be done and how to get it done to get your property sold. She and her staff are extremely knowledgeable professionals, honest and a pleasure to work with.

Lisa always was quick to return any calls and made sure that we were taken care of! Her assistant Jessica was also a big help and we will definitely be using them again!

We were trying to sell our house by owner when Lisa called and asked if she could show it to one of her customers. A few days later we had a signed contract. We were very pleased with how efficient and quick everything was completed. She provided us with service above and beyond for a For Sale by Owner transaction.

Lisa is the consummate professional. Before listing, she spent several hours with me to discuss determining a listing price and to advise me on what I should do to prepare the house for showing. Her marketing efforts were extensive and extremely effective. We had an offer in 5 weeks, in a market where 8-10 weeks was not uncommon. Lisa's attention to detail from pre-listing meeting through closing is the hallmark of her excellent service to her clients.

Lisa is very knowledgeable and resourceful. She utilized her extensive experience to research and investigate housing options to meet our needs. Lisa was patient, understanding, and honest. We were thoroughly blessed to have Lisa and highly recommend her!

Lisa is an outstanding realtor. I've worked with her on multiple occasions (renting and/or selling) over the years. In addition to being an outstanding price-setter, a tough (but fair) negotiator, and hard worker, she's also a very nice and super-honest person. That's why she is so productive and easy to work with.

Lisa sent above and beyond in serving as our agent. She listened to what our needs were and found us a perfect home that was exactly what we were looking for. She always has things organized and was prepared to answer all of our questions and gave us tips in making the transition to a new home as easy as possible.
We needed help finding a residence with a main floor master suite so that my mother could come live with us. We looked at one house that we had found on our own but did not meet our needs. Since Lisa had shown us the first house she knew what we needed and what we were looking for. Immediately we received other houses that were within our price range and that met the needs we had. Within a week we had found a home that we wanted and that met the criteria we had. At that point Lisa explained every aspect of what we needed to do and helped us every step of the way. Lisa made the home buying process smooth and easy. I highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to buy a home.

Lisa is a great realtor, She goes out of her way to help and answers an question you have. Lisa is very personable and friendly. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to buy a house.

When we contacted Lisa about the sale of our she home guided us thru the process and explained everything to us to our satisfaction. We felt safe in leaving our key with her as we were leaving on vacation. To our great surprise we received a call a little more than two weeks later that our house was sold. Everything went extremely well during the closing process. Her assistant Jessica was also a great help in making calls and setting appointments etc. In all they made the process of selling a home very easy for us and we couldn't have been happier with the results.

We really appreciated the attention Lisa's attention to detail and immediate response to our questions during the sales process. The sale of our house wouldn't have gone as quickly or smoothly without her.

Lisa truly considers your best interest. She is a great guide through the process, and provides helpful insight. She helped us find two lovely homes, and sold one in between!

Lisa was very helpful! As first time homebuyers we had many questions and she was very helpful and always responded quickly. If we need a realtor in the future we will definitely use Lisa again.

Simply the best. She'll go the extra mile to make sure you find the perfect home for you! Lisa took the time to find just the right place to fit my specifications and then went the extra mile to make sure that all of the closing details were covered, and that nothing was overlooked. She was fun to work with and created a hassle-free home buying experience!

Always goes out of her way to fulfill your needs and make this experience as pleasant as possible. She will always tell you the truth. Honest and experienced. We have used her as our realtor several times and the reason... She has NEVER let us down.

From start to finish Lisa was phenomenal. She is professional, works very hard and at the top of her profession. We listed our home with her and followed her suggested advice. We are so glad we did. Upon listing our home was under contract in about a week, after having received more than one offer after the first weekend of showing. If you want your home to sell, let Lisa lead the way.

Lisa assisted us with the purchase of our first home. She couldn't have made the process easier or smoother. She was even able to get us into seeing a house that wasn't even technically on the market yet. She truly looks out for her clients best interest at all times, and is always available for assistance. A true professional!
