What people are saying...
I attribute all of my success and my rise to the Top 1% of all RE/MAX Agents in all of Northern Illinois to Margaret Gehr, she is an outstanding, gifted and talented individual! I have climbed to the top of the Productivity Charts in a declining real estate market, all because of Margaret! I recommend her to all of my sellers, she will go in and in a matter of a few days transform "drab, dreary, ordinary" into "spectacular, eye-catching, unforgettable" and really helps my listings to have that competitive edge! My sellers reduce their marketing time by at least one third, and they generally triple in return the amount of initial investment that might be needed for the prep work and staging. It is a Win-Win situation. I never would have risen to this top productivity level, had it not been for Margaret! I call her "Margaret the Miracle Worker" , she is the true Secret to My Success! Sue Hedlund RE/MAX Suburban
"Hi Margaret- This note of thanks is long overdue! I just wanted to thank you for lending your creative expertise during the sale of our home. Paulette my Realtor commited a gross understatement when she said you worked magic! I would, and will recommend your services anytime I hear of someone selling a home. Thank you again for sharing your talent with us-hope to see you soon! Stephanie & Fred " Naperville, IL
"Margaret, you are awesome!! The place looked wonderful. I was amazed that you managed to transform my house in just one day. We had two offers the first weekend! I know you made all the difference. Thank you and your team for everything." Seller - Colleen Jennings, Naperville, IL
"HI Margaret, The place is gorgeous. I was way more than pleased. Absolutely beautiful. Its astounding the difference it makes. Thank you for doing such a nice job." Real Time Realty, Naperville,IL
"Margaret - Thanks for doing such a wonderful job. The party was a blast and everyone was amazed how great the house looked. I just love what you did to the sunroom, I would never have thought of that. I'd like you to come back and start on the 2nd floor." Remax Elite, Hinsdale, IL
Dear Margaret, Just wanted to thank you and Sue for doing such a nice job, everything looked wonderful. My husband came home and said our house never looked so good and suggested I fly you out to Kanas... I'll be calling you soon by the way. When Laura (Dayton Realty, Naperville, IL) suggested staging, after 5 months on the market, we weren't sure what to expect, but after seeing you work and the results I'm so glad we did. We got an offer within 2 weeks after you staged and sold our house. I would highly recommend you to anyone even if they were not selling. seller-Patrick & Nancy OConnell, Plainfield, IL
"Dear Margaret, Many thanks for the beautiful job you did at my listing in Carol Stream. Your help and creativity made all the difference! It was fun working together. Thanks again." Gini Valentino, Century 21 Team Realtors, Naperville, IL
