Get to know Annette Akey

With over 20 years full-time experience selling homes in the Chicago area, I have the skill & knowledge to aide you in selling your home and finding you the best home to suit your needs.  Real estate is a passion that I live every day.

I specialize in Chicago's western suburbs but also know the southwest, northwest & far western suburbs as well.  Having lived here all my life I have a vast knowledge of the area.  I grew up in Addison & lived there the first 23 years of my life.  Then on to Naperville for a short stint, then Wheaton, & now Carol Stream where my husband of 18 years, Dan, & I live and now & help our clients together find & sell the perfect property for their needs.  Carol Stream has been called home for over 16 years.  I have sold homes in every town in DuPage & Kane Counties as well as Plainfield, Bolingbrook, Romeoville, Joliet, Lemont, Sugar Grove, Plano, Aurora, Montgomery, Oswego, DeKalb, Sycamore, Huntley, Poplar Grove, Crystal Lake, Lake in the Hills, Algonquin, Barrington, Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg, Arlington Heights, Elk Grove Village, Chicago, and even homes on the North Shore.  Our business has touched hundreds of lives, maybe even yours already!

We have developed our own Specialized Marketing Plan, structured to get your home sold for the highest price possible in today's market.  We use several techniques to determine an ideal marketing price and use a variety of media to promote your home.  You never have to worry about long-term listings agreements either - if you are unhappy at any time, just let me know and you will be let out of your listing agreement at no cost - REALLY!

When buying, we provide you with listing updates twice per day.  Our team is available 7 days per week (days, evenings & weekends) to show you homes.  To make sure you are not overpaying for a home, you will be provided with detailed market value reports before you place an offer on any home.  We have access to ALL MLS properties no matter who they are listed with and access to foreclosures and other distressed properties as well.

Oh, did I mention, you always have an open line to me.  You should never feel like you have been pawned off on an associate.  You can call me any time or send an email! 

When you hire us to represent you, you can relax knowing that you have chosen the best professionals in the area!
