"I hired Anne West to sell my home in Wilmette and I can’t say enough good things about my experience working with her. Anne gave me exemplary advice on how to prepare the house for sale. She identified the target market for my particular property and created an aggressive marketing plan to reach those buyers. We received several written offers which she brought over and reviewed with me in detail, pointing out potential red flags and discussing negotiating strategies. She worked flawlessly with the buyer's broker (she seems know them all), as well as my attorney and the title company. She brought clarity to the entire process and helped me through the almost inevitable problems that can and do occur. In the end, I had the offer I wanted and it was over in about 60 days. In summary, out of 5 stars I give Anne 5 stars. Educated, congenial, personable, professional, serious and funny, she is the best."

"Anne is a creative agent with a strong marketing background. She is also very personable and even tempered which is very important as negotiations get going. She was excellent in developing a strategy to sell our house and worked hard to make it happen in a soft local market."
Chris & Elizabeth M., Northfield
"Anne had a wealth of knowledge of our local market and guided us through the sale process. She was a true partner, listening to our concerns and giving us valuable information to make good decisions. We would highly recommend Anne and we would use her again in the future."
John & Tracy C., Wilmette
“We’ve moved around and bought and sold several homes over the years. Our experience with Anne, Daverille and Paula is the best we’ve ever had. They sold our home at list price on the first day! They each have unique specialties that make them better as a team than any single realtor could ever be. Also, because there is three of them, they are available at a moment’s notice. They were very professional and caring, and each of them exceeded our expectations. We could have not asked for a better team to sell our home and make it a worry-free process. We definitely recommend them.”
Alberto and Brenda H., Wilmette
“It was a pleasure working with the Come Home North Shore team to sell our home. Their combined expertise made the process fast and painless. We sold our home after being on the market for 30 days at the full asking price. What more could you ask for?”
Enna and Jim A., Glencoe
“Thank you so much for making our home purchase so easy. It was wonderful to know that- with all the unexpected issues that surfaced- we had someone so adept at negotiating in our corner. Your team made dealing with realtors, inspectors, and lawyers so smooth that we did not loose a single night’s sleep over this purchase. We particularly appreciated all of the honest and thorough competitive market information that you compiled that allowed us to make reasonable bids that seemed to reduce our stress and limit our negotiating time to a fruitful end.
Thank you again for all of your efforts on our behalf. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know that is looking for a home.”
Anne S., Winnetka
“I would highly recommend Come Home North Shore if you’re ever needing to buy or sell real estate on the North Shore. The team did a great job staging and then marketing our townhouse. They effectively negotiated multiple offers while maintaining great communication with me during the entire process.”
Dave J., Evanston
“Your warmth and experience were integral to our successful search and purchase. You knew – better than we did – what we were looking for and how we might find it. Altogether a great experience! Very highly recommended.
Russell P., Winnetka
“Excellent professional real estate brokers. Smart, wise and very knowledgeable of the real estate market. I highly recommend them.”
Mel G., Highland Park
“Anne was a great real estate agent throughout the entire process. She quickly determined our needs, helped us find the right home and then negotiated the purchase agreement. We were relocating to Chicago and didn’t know the area well. Anne took us on a great tour of the North Shore to familiarize us with the neighborhoods and so she could get an idea what we were looking for. She knew all about the local; schools, businesses and recreation.and helped us connect with the services in the area. Here help made it easier for us to transition to our new home. When it came to executing the business deal she had a lot of great advice and was on top of everything. Thanks to her we are very happy in our new home.”
Nancy and Paul L., Wilmette
"As expats you want a Realtor to go the extra mile and Anne most definitely did. She helped us get a quick feel for the area by taking us around for a day. The next day we zoomed in on the community where our family felt most comfortable. Her knowledge of the different communities, schools and activities is impressive. What most impressed us, though, is her dedication to find the right place in a market with scarce inventory by thinking with us and being quick, and working with an 11 hour time difference to keep communication flowing smoothly. Having worked with a lot of real estate agents around the world, we can honestly say that Anne was the best."
Sander H., Wilmette
"I loved working with Anne West on the sale of my home, where I’d lived for nearly 38 years. She took the time to learn about my concerns and helped me through the whole process. She explained the legal and understood the emotional aspects clearly. Over the course of several months, she suggested reliable and appropriate people and companies who could help me get rid of stuff and prepare the house for sale. ... Anne helped me know what I needed to do to prepare the house and yard for sale, and I was relieved to realize that I didn’t have to change many things in order to get “curb appeal.” Once the house was on the market, Anne was able to market it in numerous places near and far. She made the open house experience most pleasant for me, and when someone wanted to see the house, I had plenty of warning to get out! I knew that I could easily reach either Anne with any questions, and that was reassuring. Anne even took me around to see options for a new home, so I could begin to picture myself somewhere else. The sale of one’s beloved house is an emotional experience, and Anne understood this and made it easy. Naturally, if I had it to do over, I’d call Anne West."
