real estate joliet il: LaNita is one of the most proactive agents that we have ever dealt with. - 07/30/11 10:17 AM
Testimonial... Lanita is one of the most proactive agents that we have ever dealt with. I never had to follow up with her on anything which is comforting when buying and selling a home. Whenever I was concerned over anything she was great at calming me down. She is a very down to earth person which is not only refreshing but made me feel at home. I would definitely use Lanita again and would refer her to anyone! Hans & Ruthie Lehmann Closed 06/14/2011 on 3N684 Herman Melville Lane, St. Charles, IL

real estate joliet il: Joliet IL Real Estate Agents + Joliet IL Real Estate News - REMAX - 10/01/10 08:39 AM
Are you a first time homebuyer and not sure where to start? Do you wonder if you need to find the house first and THEN talk to a lender? Do you know what you should look for in a home that fits your needs now but will be good for resale later? Does a short sale make sense for you? If you are renting, and your lease doesn't expire for another 6 months, when is the right time to look? Should I consider a townhome/condo or a single family home?
