Testimonials for Debra Kukulski, Broker Associate
I can strongly recommend Debra as a competent, diligent and well-informed real estate agent. I have referred numerous friends and relatives, as well, to her. They have been very pleased with her professionalism and attentiveness and will not hesitate to use her, again, in the future!

"Your services were up and above my expectations! Even when you were out of the office you managed to keep tabs on what was going on and kept in communication with me. Any question that I had you were able to not only answer it but provide additional information about the matter! We would have never found the house that we love without you! And the fact that we were not even supposed to be allowed to get the house and that you pushed everyone else that was working with us to make it a possibility is amazing! We can not thank you enough and we will most definitely recommend you to whoever is in the market for buying or selling!"
Courtney and Travis, Fox Lake, IL
Deb was fantastic! She made a very stressful situation much easier for me and my family. I especially am thankful for her photography, staging, lender, inspector, and attorney referrals which saved me A TON of legwork and time knowing I was in good hands with people she trusted. She was honest and caring and always emailed me or called me back asap with my many questions. I was expecting a ton of gray hairs while trying to sell but I haven't noticed even one because of Debra!!! I look forward to working with Deb in the near future for my other real estate needs. Deb Rocks!

"Deb Kukulski is truly a professional agent. She worked with me during a very intense period when I had to find a new home and sell my previous home in a very short time span. Deb was patient, listened to me and, most of all, gave me good advice and helped me manage my concerns throughout the process. She also had a great network of people, who also supported me in both processes of acquiring a new home and selling my previous house -- which we completed in 6 months -- with very good results on both sides of the equation. I am very happy in my new home and I would recommend Deb to anyone who needs a Realtor for their home needs."
Grace K. - Arlington Heights and Crystal Lake, IL
I recommend Debra Kukulski for all your needs selling or buying. She has helped many of my customers and friends with their real estate needs. When the thought of a Realtor comes up the only person that comes to mind is Debra. She is always there, thanks Debra!

Thank you for all your help in the purchase of our new home, especially since it was so close to the holidays. Your commitment and dedication were unstoppable and made for a terrific holiday season for our family. You were instrumental in the purchase of our first home well over 10 years ago so there was no question we were going to call you when we decided to sell our townhouse. Your continued communication through emails, birthday cards, anniversary and holiday cards were kind but also a comforting reminder that you were always there if we needed you. We are thankful for your tremendous amount of knowledge and resources when trying to sell our home. We had never heard of “staging” before but are certain that our house never would have sold so quickly if we had not used so many of your great tips. Moving along, no pun intended, we would like to mention your patience with us when we were looking for a new home. We must have seen close to 50 houses! We will never forget the time you came down to the basement of one of the houses, took one look at our faces and said “let’s get out of here”. It was then that we knew you had such a great understanding of what we were looking for and you were not going to give up until you found the right place for us. Finally, we want you to know we consider you a trooper. Foot surgery, crutches, ice and snow did not keep you from our closing only 3 days before Christmas! We appreciate your persistence in urging our attorney to look into the one small problem we noticed during the final walk through. And because you would not let up we received extra money to fix the problem. You are truly one of the best! It was our utmost pleasure to work with someone like you Deb who has and always will have our best interest at heart. With warm regards,
Jenny, Josh and Lily Krepel

She is very personable, and easy to work with, always making herself available for her client. Her knowledge is outstanding and she can quickly gauge exactly what you need in a property. She has helped me find the perfect home for my family, and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a truly great real estate agent. I look forward to working with her again to help my children find their own nest!"
