Kara Finnegan Client Testimonials

"My wife and I are first time homebuyers. Kara helped us navigate an intimidating process nonaxiously and helped us feel like she had our best interests at heart. In my opinion, she went over and above to help us feel confident in the process. In the end, we got the home of our dreams! Kara knowing the area was a huge plus! She’s made great recommendations about how to get integrated into the neighborhood." - L. Brenneman-Fullwood

"I would tell anyone, I don’t know Corcoran, but I know Kara Finnegan. Kara represents the company well and made my first time home buying experience a positive one. I had personal concerns as a BIPOC, and her understanding of the area put my mind at ease. I knew I could trust her to assist us on more than just finding a house. She patiently provided a expert guide for us in finding our home. She was thorough and made sure we understood each detail every step of the way. I’ll recommend Corcoran because of Kara Finnegan. Nothing to improve. Something to consider I appreciated that Kara lived in the area. I felt she understood the community and was able to elaborate on the heart of the village.

"Kara has helped us purchase our first home in the city. We knew the moment we started looking that we would reach out to her again. Kara not only was patient with caring with helping us find our forever home, she was diligent, responsive and thorough. She was very busy also helping us sell and rent two other properties and these qualities never suffered. Throughout the whole process her knowledge helped guide us every step of the way." - PJ & Tammy

"Kara was outstanding! She really took the time to explain things, and she helped us navigate the first-time home buying experience with patience and kindness. I trusted her completely, and she gave us excellent support. I can't recommend her highly enough." - K. Davidson

"Kara was phenomenal during the entire process of selling our home. She was extremely professional, personable, punctual, and gave us honest feedback and sound advice. She was always present for most showings which we appreciated, was very knowledgeable about the area, and would answer any questions in a timely fashion. Kara always went above and beyond at all times to close our home sale as soon as possible for the best purchase price. I fully recommend her without hesitation so you can enjoy the process of either selling or finding your new home." - M. Bermudez

"Kara provided a seamless and full-service experience for which I am extremely grateful. I no longer live in the area and was concerned that managing the details of the sale of our condominium would be challenging. Kara graciously organized the painting and cleaning of the unit and multiple small repairs (some of which she completed herself!). She was present to oversee the installation of new appliances. She recommended an attorney to manage the closing. She showed the unit, shared feedback, and gave great advice throughout the process. I will highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in the Chicago area." - K. Henke

"Highly recommend Kara, she was professional, attention to detail, on time, or early to all showings. The showings we attended went off without a hitch and she knew all the right questions to ask the seller's realtor. Kara provides guidance, if needed, based on her years of real estate experience. Thank you for a great experience!" - K. Curran

"Kara was a pleasure to work with. She was always available, honest, and considerate. I trusted Kara through the process and she was patient and thorough." - J. Medina

"Kara was fantastic and easy to work with. Knowledgeable, professional, responsive, and trustworthy in and for all aspects of our transaction. Would recommend her highly and would seek her out to buy or sell in the future." - G. Katz

"Kara was our broker on our new condo purchase in downtown Chicago. Really cannot say enough positives about our experience working with her. She was very responsive to our specific requests but also volunteered additional information which we found very worth knowing which ultimately led to our new purchase. Kara was awesome and she is definitely in my contacts as my new goto broker. She also provided contacts for our lending and legal needs through the purchase process and they were equally impressive and awesome to work with which made for a fantastic real estate team and purchase experience." - D. Smart

"Kara was excellent. She was always quick to respond to a question or get us the information we needed. She was very helpful with suggesting the services we needed. She made us feel like we were her only client. And her experience as a realtor gave us confidence in all our transactions. She’s also a genuinely nice person." - M. Katz 

"Kara was such a wonderful broker to work with. She is solution-oriented, has an eye for detail, and is so resourceful. Kara handled everything with ease which enabled us to move out of state while waiting for our home to sell. Kara kept us up-to-date and made the entire process seamless." -- Jill K. 

"Kara was wonderful to work with. She patiently shepherded my sister and I through every step of the process of selling our parents’ home, which had been in our family for over 50 years. In addition to her industry and negotiating expertise, she was extremely detailed, organized, proactive in communicating with us, and always available to answer any of our questions and concerns along the way. Even more important, she was understanding and empathetic about the emotional aspect of this sale for us. We knew she was representing our property in the best way possible and sharing its story and true value to potential buyers. It wasn’t just about getting a price we were happy with but selling to a buyer who would care for this home—and we got both with Kara. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling." -- Dymphna T. 

 “Kara worked hard to find us properties that fit our parameters and was very flexible with meeting us at showings after work and on weekends. This was our first house in Chicago and Kara was very helpful in assisting us in finding a lender and legal representation. She made what could have been a very stressful process fun. I highly recommend Kara. She is amazing!” -- Lindsay W. 

"Kara has been a dream to work with. Always accommodating and available, Kara was able to explain everything to me and get answers for me so I could make an absolutely informed decision about buying my new property. I felt completely confident in her guidance and that my best interest was important. My experience buying a property with Kara went smoothly and was really enjoyable. Her professionalism and knowledge in real estate make me want to buy more properties:) I am looking forward to settling in my new home and having Kara there to see what she helped to create there. If you need a real estate agent in Chicago - I recommend Kara hands down!" -- Karen A.

"As a first-time home buyer, I was nervous about starting the process. From the beginning, Kara helped me feel at ease. She expertly guided me through every aspect of purchasing my home.  She shared her experience and knowledge in a way that always made me feel comfortable and never left me overwhelmed. I always felt like I had an ally. I bought the most perfect home for my family and I felt that Kara was just as excited for my family as I was!" -- Sara B.
"I recently sold my condo in Chicago and Kara Finnegan represented me for this sale. She is an excellent realtor and couldn't have been more patient and informative when I had first-time seller questions. She is extremely hands-on, attended almost all viewings in person, collected detailed feedback, and used that to continually refine her strategy for how to get the best market value in a timely way. I couldn't recommend Kara more highly and strongly believe anyone who she represents will be thrilled with her services."  -- Jenn G.

“Kara was amazing to work with. As first-time home buyers, the process was completely new and we were feeling a little lost at first. However, Kara was very knowledgeable and explained every detail, and answered all our questions. She walked us through the entire process step by step. She was very easy to contact and always quick to respond. Without her help, we wouldn’t have been able to do it. We would definitely recommend Kara to anyone looking to purchase a home.” — Shiho A.

I would highly recommend Kara.’ — Mark P.
