When I started shopping for a new home I was unfamiliar with all that the Northwest Suburbs had to offer. Miranda and Hilary suggested looking around the Crystal Lake area. Now we are in our Crystal Lake home for just over a month and loving it. These ladies work as a team and are everything you want in a realtor...responsive, insightful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend them to anyone!
I found both Miranda and Hilary to be the perfect mix of personable and professional. Their personalities and straight-forward presentation of their ideas is what sold me on using them as my realtor. They knew what they were talking about, and shared all the information they had collected to support their proposals for sales price, photos and staging. My house had been listed previously with a different realtor for 6 months, with very little interest/showings. My house sold within 3 days of listing with Miranda and Hilary, and I got closer to my asking price than I expected. It had been many years since I had dealt with buying or selling, so their guidance was super helpful to me. They also had great resources for handy-man services that I used prior to listing. One of the two of them were always available to show houses I wanted to see. Really, nothing could have gone smoother with the sale of my home and purchase of a different home. I will highly recommend them to any friends or family looking to sell their home or searching for a new place!
Miranda and Hilary are the ultimate professionals. They took the time to understand our family's needs and make sure every home we looked at met our expectations. They are responsive, friendly, dedicated and easy to work with. I cannot recommend these two ladies more highly.
The TaylorAlt team is the best! They are highly responsive, energetic, smart and funny. They are my go to team and I recommend them to anyone looking for a great real estate experience.
Both Miranda and Hilary, are focused and seemingly tireless in their pursuit of not only a buyer for my home, but, a new place for me. They both modified their targets for my new residence based on my requirements and limitations. As our relationship continued, they honed their search even more as new details or concerns were made known.
Originally we listed our home 'for sale by owner', and were bombarded with calls from dozens of realtors trying to persuade us to list. One day I received a call from Miranda....and I actually listened to what she had to say. What made her stand out the most was: 1) her honesty and 2) that she was 1 of a 2 person team. She started by saying what a lovely home I had (of course), but then was honest in that my pictures were dark and what really sells real estate are beautiful & staged pictures and networking.... the networking part was especially true in Crystal Lake, where she and Hilary have roots and know a lot of people/buyers. Second was that they were a true team ... a 2 for 1. I was probably not the easiest client they have ever had, we had already purchased a home and the surmounting pressure of paying 2 mortgages was mounting....But I will say, they were true pros ! Miranda always answered my calls, they were heavily marketing our house and 3 weeks later we had an offer on the table ... which they even pre-negotiated based on our bottom price. Everything else went smooth and I can say that we are IMMENSELY HAPPY with our choice in realtors. I highly recommend Miranda and Hilary !!
