"We are first-time home-buyers and came to Mera Kordic through a recommendation from our lender. Working with Mera made the house-buying process educational and stress-free. Mera was responsive beyond our expectations: replying to e-mails, always returning texts and phone calls, and communicating with us at all hours. She remained patient as we asked typical first home-buyer questions and truly focused on making sure we understood the home-buying process in its entirety. Her knowledge of real estate is vast and Mera shined in her extremely thorough questioning of other agents regarding properties in which we were interested and stood by us from start to finish. I think the best way to describe Mera is that she will get it done, whatever it takes. We know that a lot went on behind the scenes, and Mera took care of all of it for us to make the process as seamless as possible. She was able to secure a home-warranty for us (which can in handy within the first year), recommended a terrific lawyer and inspector, and was a full-service agent. She treated us as if we'd worked together for years and devoted her full attention to our search. Mera has been in contact with us after closing to give us small tips for the future in our home and has constantly shown that she is available to continually answer any questions we should have. We would love to serve as a reference should anyone like more information about our time and interactions with Mera."
"Ms. Mera Kordic was a great recommendation from a friend. With her expertise in real estate she helped us with our unit at 5855 N. Sheridan last year. What we liked about Mera is her quick response to all our questions, availability to us and potential clients. She helped us rent our unit within one month even when we were overseas at the time. It was very easy to work with Mera and she understood the importance of finding the right person for our unit and negotiation the price we asked for. We felt comfortable leaving everything in her hands and knew that she would get the job done."
"Mera was a great realtor and a great asset for me when I was looking for my first home to purchase. Mera brought a great team to work with and everything ran smoothly from my side during the whole process - I was kept very informed of each stage of the process. Mera definitely had my best interests at heart and made sure all my expectations were met! I would recommend Mera to everyone!"
"I have been working with Mera Kordic and her team for many years, and she is outstanding to work with. Very professional, knowledgeable and always available. I strongly recommend her."
"Mera is great to work with as I employed her services for my sale at 5855 N Sheridan. She has a good relationship with the building's management which is always helpful for any sale; she's familiar with the property and is always responsive. I would highly recommend her for any sale, but especially with a building she knows well."
"I moved out of state and needed to sell my condo which meant handling it remotely. Mera was very patient with me and held my hand through the entire process. She went above and beyond to make up for my absence. Mera was professional and listed to my concerns and advised me in my best interests. I would recommend Mera to anyone looking to buy or sell property."
"If you're looking to buy a house in the Chicagoland area, Mera is the perfect person for the job. She really helped us in EVERY way possible! If it weren't for her, we wouldn't have found the perfect home. She is the most knowledgeable, honest person and was able to answer every question we had. (And was VERY quick in her responses). When it came time to putting in the offer, she did EVERYTHING possible to make sure we got it! She was a real fighter! We really feel like Mera went above and beyond! Thank you Mera for everything. We will without a doubt, recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!"
"We never purchased a condo before, and didn't know what to expect when Mera was recommended to us by one of my close friends. Knowing how picky we can be (and indeed were very picky during this process), we were pleasantly surprised with Mera's hard-to-find professionalism, understanding of the market, and amazing amount of patience. And patient she was -- it took us 9 months to make a purchase. I was almost certain that Mera would disown us before we would have a chance to purchase something, but she remained positive, professional, and never ceased to surprise us with her enthusiasm and sincere advice."
"Now that we have closed on your foreclosure listing, I would just like to say a special "Thanks" to you. You did a great job of keeping us informed throughout the entire process. When you checked on the home and took photos , you helped ease my clients apprehension. You were also great working as a mediator between my clients and the bank's asset manager. Not sure if this would have closed without your help, Mera. Thanks. I hope to do more deals with you in the future."
"As a returning customers, we can really recommend working with Mera.
"We were lucky that we were able to get Mera as our agent. We were moving out of the state, and we only had a couple of weeks to get everything ready for the move. On top of everything else, we needed to list our townhouse, and we hadn’t gotten an agent yet! Then, through a friend’s recommendation, we called Mera, and she came to our rescue! She came to our townhouse two days later with all the research done! She was very efficient, and we loved her no-nonsense attitude! We also loved her balance between aggressiveness in negotiation and a realistic perspective of what’s going on on the market. What we loved the most was her willingness to work with what we had and a practical but very effective strategy in marketing and selling our townhouse. We closed within a shorter-than-expected timeframe, and couldn’t have done it without her!! Thanks, Mera!"
"It was 10:30pm at night and Mera called us to tell us she found us the perfect condo on the northside of Chicago. A building that was next to impossible to find units available for sale. She scheduled an appointment that next morning at 10am. We were the first ones in to see and by that afternoon we found out we got the condo out of 10 other offers. Mera was successful in making our offer the most attractive offer out of the rest. Our condo is now worth $70,000 more than the day we bought it 2 years ago. We are so happy with her services. She practically held our hand throughout the entire process. She was patient and understanding. I definitely recommend her to all our family and friends. 2 years later, we made $75K profit on the unit when we sold it! Thank you again Mera !"
"Hi Mera, I just wanted to tell you again that working with you on the sale of my listing at 4214 Mallard was great and I hope we have another opportunity in the future to work together. You responded to all of my questions and requests in a timely and professional manner, and I was most impressed with the fact that you provided all of the documentation for the transaction online via ConnectMLS. You are the only agent I have worked with that has done that. In addition, you were very kind and shared with me the how toscan the documents and about what kind of scanner to get. If I were not an agent myself, I would consider using you as my buyer or seller agent.
"Mera's attention to detail and relentless negotiating tactics make her someone we were really happy to have on our side when we bought our house."
"Mera was not only instrumental in finding me a building with commercial space for my business as a travel agent, but also negotiating a great purchase price. She was instrumental with helping me double my business by finding me the ideal buidling in the ideal location on Lincoln Ave. I recommend her to all my clients!"
"Mera Kordic was great to work with! She is extremely professional, detail oriented, and was always available to answer questions and explain every aspect of real estate transactions- which was very much appreciated by this first time home owner! I would definitely recommend Mera to anyone looking to buy or sell their home- she's the best!"
"I highly recommend Mera to anyone looking to purchase a new home! She was meticulous in researching properties that fit our needs. Her extensive general home interior/exterior maintenance knowledge was invaluable to us as we looked at various properties. When it was time to gather our paperwork for submission, we really felt that she was on top of all the details and made sure that everything went through at the right time! Mera Kordic is very professional in dealing with all the interested parties of a sale/closure, and felt that she was respected by all others that we dealt with. We love our new home and in large part are so satisfied because the process was so smooth! Thanks!"
"Working with Mera was a great experience. Mera is a true real estate professional and defiantly takes her job very seriously. She is also very ethical. If I were not an agent I would defiantly want her representing me. Look forward to working with you again Mera"
"Mera thanks for everything. You exceeded our expectations. And the only way we can truly thank you is to refer our friends or relatives that may need to buy houses in future to you. You have our word on that. Also remain assured that we accept you and members of your family as our friends. Feel free to drop by anytime. Thank you Mera,and more grease to your elbows."
"I really enjoyed being able to work with someone as understanding of my needs as Mera when purchasing my building. Buying property is always a chaotic and nerve-racking process, and I've always felt that it was important to work with someone you trust completely. After all, you have a lot riding on that person's knowledge as a Realtor. I think that I found just that in Mera; someone I could feel comfortable with and trust to make decisions that were right for me. She was always honest and never pushy, which made the whole process that much less stressful on me as the buyer. She really does go out of her way to put the clients needs first. I really enjoyed working with her and I would recommend her services to anyone!"
"Working with Mera Kordic on buying my first condo was truly a wonderful experience. As a very nervous first-time home buyer, I needed somebody who would hold my hand and guide me through the process. Mera was extremely knowledgeable and was there for me with every aspect of the process. She was very efficient, was always on top of every detail, and responded to all of my questions and requests in a timely manner. She made sure that everything went through at the right time and stood by me 100%. Working with Mera made the experience much less stressful for me as a first-time home buyer. I really enjoyed working with her and recommend her services to anyone"
"We wanted to thank you again for the excellent and personal service you gave me and my family throughout our re-financing process. You've made an intimidating and time consuming process into a smooth and almost effortless task. You were tenacious and at the same time very patient in making sure that all the requirements were in place and that everything would go well leading up to the closing. We truly appreciate all that you've done for us. I will definitely keep referring you (as I did with my own sister) to all associates, clients, and business contacts who need real estate and mortgage services. I am sure that anybody I refer to you will be in good hands like we were. Thanks for all you've done for us Mera.
"Mera Kordic is the relentless, tenacious, never say never representative you need in the Real Estate War. She not only keeps you in the loop with almost up to the minute communication,she goes above and beyond that of an average agent giving longer hours an added expertise. No kidding! Mera is the person you want on your side,easing the process some start to finish. I highly recommend her services. Thanks again Mera, Firefighter Robert M. Russell"
"Mera was very professional to work with and we felt like she represented our best interest when dealing with the other party the seller. Mera went the extra mile and assisted us in renting our investment property and kept us infomed. I would definately work with Mera again in the future."
"We couldn't be happier in our decision to pick Mera Kordic as our realtor. She provided us with valuable tips and information on selling our house and buying our new house. We are very pleased with her service. She stands behind her clients 100% and she really delivered for us especially in such difficult economic times."
"We had an excellent experience working with Mera, and strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the Chicago area. She is a great resource for information about the buying process and Chicago neighborhoods, which helped her to find the best possible fit for us. Mera is multi-lingual, and her understanding of different cultures in different neighborhoods proved to be a great asset when visiting houses. Possibly her greatest strength is that she mixes being an excellent listener with a drive to get her client in the right house. She understood what we were looking for, and was invaluable when making our decision on our new home. Mera was also very professional, organized and timely throughout the entire process, which really cut down on the stress of moving and finding a new home."
"Thanks for all your work in helping us find and purchase a condo in Chicago, for my daughter and myself. Not only did you help us with locating a great piece of property to suit our needs, but you helped us every step of the way of this sometimes confusing and tedious process and were right with
"Trying to purchase a condo in Chicago while living in another state can be a very stressful thing. We feel fortunate to have been referred to you to help my husband and I find and negotiate the right condo for us and my parents in downtown Chicago. You were very accomodating to our needs and helped to be our eyes and ears in making sure we got the right property. We also appreciated your insight on renovation recommendations. We will be sure to recommend you to all our friends and family. Thanks again for all your help."
"My husband and I moved to Florida last October for his employment change. We purchased a home here in Florida and chose to keep our condo at 5855 N. Sheridan Rd for our use. It came to our attention that, under specific circumstances, we were permitted to rent our condo as long as we went through a number of “hoops” and found an appropriate tenant. This past April, we asked Property Manager for a recommendation for a realtor who knows the building and the Edgewater area. She gave us the name of several realtors, including Mera Kordic. Mera was on the job from the get go and found us an incredible tenant in just 2 weeks. She patiently navigated us through all of the paperwork and kept us on target for deadlines. She helped us understand the process and took time out for us. She went above and beyond the call of duty by helping us to stage our unit for the best price, and by finding someone to clean the unit as well so it was looking its best. We were very pleased with her services."
