She was such an asset to us that we recommended her to friends of ours who were trying to sell their home.  They had been on the market for several months.  Katie got involved and sold it within weeks. I cannot say enough about her professionalism and work ethic.  If we ever decide to move again, we will absolutely be calling Katie."

"From day one Katie was encouraging, candid, considerate, timely and truly looked out for our best interests.  She helped us through our negotiation process for the purchase of our new home with ease (we got a great deal!) and she listed our old house to sells simultaneously.  She was always just a phone call or text away and made herself available on short notice and even during odd hours. She took the time to help us understand the intricacies of buying and selling and helped us sell for the price we needed.  It's important to note that not only was Katie an incredible asset during a stressful move for us as a real estate professional, but we also really liked her as a person--genuine, warm, easy to connect with.  Katie is passionate about what she does and it showed in how she treated us with real care.  I will recommend Katie to all my family and friends who need real estate help.  We're so lucky to have found her!"

"My entire family loved working with Katie Claypool. She's friendly, professional, and extremely prompt with returning texts, emails and phone calls.  She's very knowledgeable about Wheaton homes and the area in general.  I've met other realtors at open houses, and none of them put me at ease like Katie.  She was great and didn't make me feel pushed or overwhelmed.  She was attentive to our wants and needs and she helped my family get the house that suited us.  The home buying process would have been a lot more difficult without Katie.  I would recommend her 100%!"

Steven & Jenny Poppen, Wheaton

"Honest, extremely knowledgeable, valuable insight on the market and staging.  Very responsive and just a pleasure to work with. Katie's advice on pricing was spot on.  There were three bids on our home, as she predicted a bidding contest.  She negotiated with the buyers and got us the highest buying price for our neighborhood.  We were fortunate to have her as our agent."
