Suleen L. & Aleen E.

Kati Spaniak and her team helped facilitate a sale of my mom’s home after she passed. Their expertise and guidance during this trying time was invaluable for us, and the whole house sale process was seamless. I really felt they were working on our behalf in terms of providing honest advice on where to stand firm and what we could give on. Not to mention, Alison helped manage and facilitate certain tasks that needed to be tended to prior to closing during a particularly busy season at work. I cannot say enough good things, and thank you to Kati, Alison, and Kati’s husband Michael for making this as easy of an experience as possible!

Ken F.

Kati has a great team of people that allows her to provide a high level of personal service while delegating the details. Kati is highly experienced and assertive while also being diplomatic and soft in her approach. All of this allowed me to take comfort in marketing and selling my Northbrook  property while then residing 2000 miles away!

Greg B.

What a great team.  Communication was phenomenal.  They marketed my property well and they exceed my expectations.

Tina P.

We would recommend the Spaniak Team! They really know what they are doing and have specific knowledge about certain neighborhoods. Our agent was super kind and very responsive. As first time buyers we were very inexperienced. Our agent had a lot of intuition when it came to figuring what price to start with when negotiating. We really appreciated her experience and confidence!!! We got our dream house at an amazing cost considering the value of the home. We will not forget our experience! Thank you!

Bill & Karin S.

Kati was our first and only choice for a broker when we decided to sell our home of fifty years. During our initial meeting she put us at ease, answering our questions and concerns with extreme patience. We were so impressed with her knowledge of the market, especially the Northbrook area. During the time our house was on the market, Kati was constantly in touch and only a phone call or email away. Her positive approach and high energy were a blessing to us. Kati constantly demonstrated professionalism, dependability, an extremely pleasant attitude, and a tremendous work ethic. We have the highest regard for Kati and would recommend her to anyone!

Bill and Georgia L.

Kati was one of the most organized and professional real estate agents I have ever met. She guided and coached my wife and I through the home selling process, from staging, pictures, assessments, to the closing and moving. Kati and her support team were reliable, collaborative and had a can do attitude. I was very confident in Kati selling my home. She was great at asking questions to understand our needs. When we received an offer on our home, we were still looking for a new home – and Kati reached out to her network and helped find us a new home shortly after our current home’s close. Highly recommend Kati and her team!


Kati helped sell our condo in Northbrook. She took charge of the entire process from getting the condo ready for sale ( organizing emptying it, fixing it up and getting it ready to show) to the final sale. And, she and her team provided true “turnkey service” on these since I was traveling overseas during the whole listing period. Kati provided valuable advice on pricing and negotiating the final deal (and responding to unreasonable offers). I think the price we got was very reasonable and reflected the hard work ?Kati put into it. She and her team provided constant updates on the status of the transaction as well as what else was on the market. I intend to use her services fir any future real estate transaction that vine up. I can whole-heartedly recommend her and her team. They are true professionals and good people. Thank you, Kati !!!

Alan L.

Kati made it all easy. She and Diane were always available and made the process very enjoyable.

Jeff and Elise M.

I would give Kati 6 stars if I could. She outlined a plan and then delivered on it. Hands down the best experience with a broker we have ever had. Could not give her a higher recommendation. Kati was amazing. Best experience I have ever had with a broker. She was tremendous from start to finish.

Adam and Michele B.

Fantastic experience all around – Kati & her team are the best! Attentive, responsive, honest, helpful, etc. Would use them again without question!

Cindy and Dennis J.

Kati is very knowledgeable and honestly guided my husband and I through the entire sales process. The staging service provided as part of the package really transformed my condo and made it far more appealing to potential buyers. We had to leave town before closing and Kati and her team handled all details with minimal involvement from us. The fact she has a support staff working with her makes for quick response at all times. Her marketing strategies are very technologically aggressive and reports to the seller provide valuable information on social media marketing. I think @properties has to be at the forefront of technology in real estate sales. I loved the “app” to schedule appointments for showings. My condo, when compared to other sales Kati does, was a comparatively lower-priced property. I felt I was given the same careful attention as a multi-million dollar property.

Stuart S.

Kati is professional, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and courteous. It was a pleasure to have her as our broker.

Paul and Tess H.

Kati was awesome from start of process to the close. We could not have completed the process without her.

Carl and Mary S.

Kati Spaniak’s combination of competitive analysis and home staging was invaluable. Our house was valued on the cusp between two price points. To position ourselves for a quick sale, we listed at the high end of the lower range to attract more buyers. A contract at asking price was accepted in only five days. We highly recommend Kati to anyone selling their home!

John D.

Kati is an amazing broker. I was leery of Real Estate Brokers after having my home on the market for 6 years. Kati got us a contract in 4 weeks! She is smart, aggressive(but not pushy)and knows the market. If you want to sell your home, I can’t recommend Kati Spaniak enough!

Gila P.

Kati was extremely well informed with regard to the marketing of the property and she promptly communicated with me as to all happenings that occurred in the sale of the property. I would highly recommend her as a broker in the future because she is very knowledgeable and personable.

Nathan and Kathy W.

Working with Kati was an absolute pleasure, her thorough knowledge of the market helped us determine a listing price that achieved our goal. We had a quick sale at a great price. Throughout every phase of the process Kati was there to guide us and to provide whatever was required. Her network of professionals, from photographers, to stagers, to inspectors handled all our needs efficiently and kept the process running smoothly. We could not have been any happier with the service and would highly recommend Kati to anyone buying or selling a home.

David W.

Both Kati and her team provided excellent knowledge and service. They were patient and did not “push” me to do anything I did not want. I was looking for a rental and that is a very tough market right now. I would absolutely recommend them to friends.

Diane D.

Kati was the third broker we had to sell our home last year, and the successful one. She was a breath of fresh air! When it came time to sell this piece of property, there was no question, it was going to Kati! I can’t say enough good things about her, her professionalism, negotiating skills and knowledge of the market. I would recommend Kati to anyone and everyone!

Michael S.

While interviewing brokers, Kati was the ONLY one that came with a plan on how she would sell our home. The others seemed more concerned with price comparibles. Once chosen, Kati put her plan into play by having an excellent stager and photographer come in and made our house ready for sale. Our house sold in four days, I attribute that all to Kati. I would recommend Kati in a heartbeat.

Jennifer and Jeremy K.

We would use Kati again for buying or selling our next house. Kati’s knowledge and experience combined with top notch marketing skills Sold our house and got us the price we were hoping for!!!

Jennifer and Kyle L.

We have used Kati for three sales and purchases over the last ten years. She is amazing to work with and uses every resource available to find a buyer and seller. She is always so responsive and has always given us great advice. We highly recommend her!!!

Jennifer S.

We were thrilled to have Kati as our broker. She was very attentive to all our needs. She never seemed bothered by all of our thousands of questions and comments. She tried to make the process as painless as possible, which we thoroughly appreciated. Best of all, Kati was able to sell our house quickly for a price we were very happy with. We would definitely recommend her to a friend!

Kit and Stuart S.

Kati really knows Northbrook and was instrumental in our decision to move our family here. We came out to look at the area for two days before making the move out from California. She set up interviews with the local schools so we could see if they fit our needs (and they really do!). We talked about what we were looking for floor-plan, type of neighborhood, noise level and then she was able to send us listings of those that fit our needs and desires. Six weeks later we moved to the area and were able to start looking at the short list of properties that we thought would be a fit – one week later we made an offer on our new home! We all had the surprise of finding out the sellers were going to be represented by a relocation company which added lots of stress as they are very slow to answer any questions and expect you to meet all of their demands immediately. 30 days from our initial offer we closed on our new house and are now starting the process of making it our home. Thank you, Kati!

Brian S.

Kati both knows the real estate market cold but also works exceptionally hard to market properties, keep up with sales/trends, and be a responsive, communicative advocate for our property. We couldn’t be happier. Superb results aside, we always felt she was working for and thinking of our best interests. She’s fantastic.

Bill and Betsy S.

There isn’t a better realtor in Northbrook. She is tied into the Northbrook real estate market and knows the current inventory as well as what will be coming on the market. Kati is knowledgable, intelligent and strong negotiator. Only realtor in Northbrook that I would use.When a house is coming on the market, Kati will make sure you the first one to see it. 

Neil J.

Kati has always been readily available and willing to go the extra mile to make us happy. I have passed her name on to friends who agree with my evaluation–experienced and very professional.

Heidi R.

Kati Spaniak has assisted my husband and me in both home sales and purchases. Her realistic sales strategy and excellent marketing materials enabled us to sell a house in less than 2 weeks in a shaky market–remarkable! And when house hunting she provided us with very thorough research regarding neighborhoods and comparable listings including sales.

Joanna H.

We were looking for a long time to find this one of a kind house. Kati Spaniak has been very patient with us, she was always very professional and helpful. I trust Kati with all my real-estate needs.

Paul and Amy B.

Kati and her team sold our house in two days!! This was because she brought in the right people to stage the house while taking in consideration that we still had to live there. She used a professional photographer that took high impact photos, and then brought it all together with descriptions on the MLS and social media to bring in multiple offers. Her team also called every Friday to check in. We also used Kati for purchasing our new home and it too was a very smooth process. We were able to close on both homes in about 30 days. Kati made the home buying and selling process a positive experience.

Keith and Trish S.

Kati is great to work with! She helped us buy our dream home and is helping us sell our other house. Kati is very knowledgeable about the area and so professional. I feel like she genuinely was looking out for us and put our needs first, regardless of the outcome for her. She and her team are extremely responsive and follow through on everything.

Bill and Natalie W.

Kati, She is the best. We did everything she told us to be ready for sale of home. I texted her approval her to have listing live June 6, 2015. Midday she asked to show house 2:00 that afternoon. They were first people Kati brought over. Next day we came to agreement on price. Never went on MLS not even a sign. My advice to anyone wanting to sell…Listen to everything she tells you about price and how your house should look.. I guess is she will beat 24 million in sales this year! Go Kati.

Annie and Josh S.

We really enjoyed working with Kati and her team. At every step of the way, they listened to our needs and worked hard on our behalf – but also kept our expectations realistic! We were amazed by how quickly and efficiently everything happened – from the first meeting with Kati through staging our home into something buyers could imagine themselves living in, to open houses, and eventually sale to close. On the buy side, John bent over backward to work with us (in a new market for all!) and find the perfect house for our family. Kati helped us through the (sometimes stressful) process and made the entire situation as smooth as it possibly could have been.

Brian and Ariel S.

I can’t say enough good things about Kati. From day one, she was so focused on listening to what we wanted, and then made it her job to find us exactly that. Her dedication to us and our needs was so good that she almost acted like she was finding her own house! Her communication was amazing and she made us feel like we were her only clients. Through this process, Kati became more than just our broker but also a friend with how great she took care of us!

Ann and Ralph A.

Kati alerted us to a house that she thought would be perfect for us, and as soon as we walked in, we agreed. She gave us good advice about the market but also let us make our own decisions and follow our intuition regarding the price and contract. She stayed with us throughout the whole process, through closing. When some unusual issues came up during the process, Kati helped us to resolve them and was fully on our side. We appreciated the honest discussions and her straight-forward approach.

Bob L.

Kati was great to work. We sold our house in November, before the holidays and within ten days we had an offer. Kati indicated that if the house was priced right, it should sell. The closing took some time, but Kati worked with her staff and keep everything on track until we closed. Kati provided timely updates and was very organized throughout the process. It was a pleasure working with Kati and her staff. 

Michael Rothstein and Alison S.

Kati was great to work with. She understood what we were looking for and made the process as easy as possible!

Mridu S.

Kati and her team did a phenomenal job of taking care of all aspects of selling our home that had been rented.In addition to marketing it, they coordinated all aspects of the sales and closing process coordinating among the buyer, the renter and the rental management agency. Superb work that produced a very fast and satisfactory end – we closed on the sale today !! I would recommend her team unreservedly too anyone contemplating buying or selling a home. She and her team (thanks Diane) are superb.

Vladimir A.

It is my pleasure to recommend Kati Spaniak as a top real estate agent who helped us to get our house sold. She was very professional to stage the house, prepare great pictures for the book along with other marketing materials. Kati is really knowledgeable in real estate business and a great professional. She was always available for any questions or concerns. We are extremely happy and are pleased to recommend Kati without hesitation.

Eugina and Dennis L.

Kati was phenomenal and her entire team was so great to work with throughout the process. She was responsive, understanding, fair and extremely supportive. Everyone on her team added a lot of value and they made a very stressful process much more bearable. We had some challenges issues pop up but Kati did an excellent job of keeping everyone focused and tactfully encouraged all parties involved to keep moving forward. She and her team were really willing to go that extra mile whenever needed and we could not be more pleased with how quickly we were able to sell our home. We would highly recommend Kati Spaniak to anyone looking to buy or sell a property!

Chandra S.

Kati helped sell our condo in Northbrook and our house in Glenview. She and her team did a fabulous job – I cannot emphasize enough how great a job they did. With the condo, Kati’s team took charge of the entire process from getting it ready for sale to the final sale. This involved not just listing but everything from help in clearing the apartment, fixing it up and , of course, the showings. She and her team provided true “turnkey service” on these since I was traveling overseas during the whole listing period. Kati provided valuable advice on pricing and negotiating the final deal (and in responding to unreasonable offers). I think the price we got was very reasonable and reflected the hard work Kati put into it. Our experience with Kati on this was so good that we listed with her a house we owned in Glenview that had been rented out. This was even faster – we had one good offer on the very day we signed the listing documents. We closed on this today. Since this house was rented out, she had to negotiate a deal that provided an appropriate timeline for the tenant to vacate and coordinate among the buyer, the rental management company and the tenant. She and her team (Thank you, Diane !!!) provided constant updates on the status of the transactions throughout the process and made it very, very easy for me. I can whole-heartedly recommend her and her team. They are true professionals and good people to boot. If I had any more real estate to sell, Kati would be the only person I would go to with the confidence it would be taken care of fairly, efficiently and smoothly. Thank you, Kati !!!
