Testimonials

I cannot believe my good fortune in finding Sue Kalina as a realtor agent. She is superb in so many areas: knowledgeable, supportive, caring and lays no pressure on her clients. She follows through promptly with any questions and is quick to return calls. She took me under her wing, and found for me what I know to be a perfect move. With her guidance, I am now standing in the gateway of a new adventure in my life.

Seeing a 'for rent' sign, I called Sue Kalina thinking a rental was our family of 4's only way of moving out of my parents place. That day I almost signed on for $1200/mo for an apartment of 1000 square feet. But Sue's heart for our family to be in a place of our own came to the rescue. She shared with us about a program that helps with down payment and works within our means. That day changed our lives. She walked us through the whole process and we now live in an amazing 1800+ square foot house in an Historic Area! Our taxes and mortgage are LESS than the rental would have been. We had no idea it was ever even possible to own a place of our own, and Sue's heart for family and homeownership was an answer to our prayer!

Sue Kalina is the fourth agent we have hired to sell a house over the years and the second agent we have used in this area. She is by far the most responsible, detail-oriented agent I have ever had. She takes the time to do whatever she can to help throughout the process. After our house sold, she sent us rental listings, came over, picked us up and drove us all over creation until we could decide on a rental. Sue Kalina's advice, negotiating skills, experience, integrity and dedication give her a great edge. As long as we are in this area, she will be our agent. She is the only agent we would recommend.

Sue helped us purchase our home over 12 years ago, which we still live in and love! From day one she has always been professional, kind, and gone over and beyond for us. Her extensive knowledge in real state sets your mind at ease, and she is great about communicating and explaining everything to you. Since then, she has helped us rent our investment property for the last 10 years. I can always count on Sue to do a great job! She is our Realtor for life! — Ryan and Patti Trcka, St. Charles
I’m a real estate investor which owns a group of rental properties. I use Sue for all aspects of the transactions from acquiring the properties to screening tenant selection, through to exiting of existing renters and filling vacancies with new ones. Sue’s years of experience, professionalism and drive help keep my operations running and that’s why I have Sue part of my team- and you should too! — Craig Havlik, Principal/ The Hondo Group, LLC

I have known Sue Kalina for 7 years. In that time she has sold three houses for me and helped me buy two! Obviously, I know her well! Two of the houses that she sold for me sold in one weeks time after putting them on the market! I think Sue is a phenomenal realtor! Her photography, her staging, her direct approach is the best. She fights for her clients and always gets the best. The last house she helped my husband and I buy was a short sale. Everyone told us to stay away from short sales ....they take too long, they're too hard. Well, we started our short sale the middle of February and we closed the end of May! Some regular sales take that long! There were ups and downs but Sue helped us to stay on track and keep pushing through. We couldn't be more pleased, and we love our house. Sue is extremely knowledgeable in every aspect including financing, market values, timing, and how to make the best offers. I highly recommend her, she is the best!

I have known, and worked, with Sue Kalina since 1999. There is one thing I can say for certain about Sue, and I write it on every thank you card I give her, “Sue, you are the BEST!”. When I bought my first property, Sue made the process move flawlessly. Not knowing anything about real estate, Sue held my hand and made certain my best interests were looked after. In the nearly 14 years since I met Sue, I have bought or sold four separate properties utilizing Sue’s first class service. Each time, Sue went above and beyond the call of duty. For certain, my next real estate transaction will go through Sue. If you ask any of my friends or family members who have also worked with Sue, they will say the same thing, Sue is the BEST!
