Professional, courteous, timely. Ramona stayed with us right through until closing to be sure everything went smoothly. I appreciated the level of communication and personal attention.
Shannon Loughlin
Ramona was very organized, very professional and always available to talk to me during the process. She even had to talk me off the ledge one or two times.
Patricia Korona
My experience with dreamtown and Ramona DeMille was excellent. I found her very easy to work with and the property was barely on the market when we got offers, both above our asking price.
Charles Kite
I truly enjoyed working with Ramona Demille. She is very knowledgeable of the market and always made me feel like she was looking out for my best interests. I would definitely use her again and have already referred her services to other people.

Ramona was incredibly easy to work with and quickly responded to all of my questions and requests to see places. I felt I could trust her and that she wasn't just trying to "sell" me on something. Overall, it was a great experience.

Having recently purchased our first home with one of your agents, I feel compelled to write to you and describe what a comforting pleasure it was to work with Ramona DeMille. Not only was she patient with us, showing us at least fifty properties, but she was also very knowledgeable about the varying neighborhoods in which we were interested, the different amenities and possible pitfalls of the properties, and the history of the various houses we visited with her. Ramona never told us what we wanted; she was always attentive to our wishes and would refine her search for us based on those desires. When we found our "it" house, she skillfully guided us through the offering and countering process while reassuring us that we were making a good choice. My wife and I are supremely happy in our new home, and it is in no small part due to Ramona's knowledge, attentiveness, and experience as a real estate agent. Thank you, Ramona!

Ramona is simply the best. Ramona was my agent for both the buying and selling processes. In fact, I selected her for the selling process because of how I was treated during the buying process. That is, she took the time to answer every one of my many questions, made me feel confident in her abilities, and because of these qualities, I trusted her. When I began a search for a condo, Ramona listened to my budget needs and really worked to get me the condo I wanted at a budget I could afford. When it came time to selling, once again, she listened to my needs and we secured a selling price that I was happy with. Ramona made me feel like I was her number one priority at all times, checking in with me on a regular basis to find out how I was feeling about the process and asking all the right questions to potential buyers until we had a solid offer on the table. She also referred me to some outstanding legal advice and a wonderful mortgage broker. I could not speak more highly of Ramona as a professional, and as a hard-working real estate agent. Most especially for nervous first-time buyers, Ramona is top notch at being on your side and ensuring that your questions are answered in a timely manner.

Ramona was extremely helpful in helping me find a rental property. She was patient while I sorted through issues related to the cross border move. Once I got here she found several properties that fit my needs. I ended up in a place that so far has made me very happy.

I never thought i would be able to live along the lakefront with the amount i had in mind but with patience we both found my (first place) perfect little bachlor pad!
Peter Glodowski
Ramona was great, she helped us for two years prior to the listing giving us advice on what improvements we should and should not make. When we were finally ready to pull the trigger and put our condo on the market she put in the extra effort did a ton of marketing for us with post cards and high end photography and built up frenzy for our open house. We listed our condo on a Wednesday and had a bidding war during the open house on Sunday. We sold our place for 11K over asking and could not be happier, thank you Ramona!!!

I recently utilized Ramona's expertise for my first home purchase in Chicago. She helped me find an ideal home in a really tough market and worked tirelessly to ensure that all of my needs were met. I think Ramona's integrity and honesty set her apart in her field. I chose Ramona because I felt I could trust her completely, and she did not disappoint throughout the entire sales process. Ramona is very knowledgeable about the Chicago market and has a unique ability to understand her clients' needs and match those needs to a specific property. She was incredibly thorough in her evaluation of our property choices. I would recommend Ramona without reservation to anyone purchasing a home in the Chicago area.Her knowledge of the area, integrity,and dedication to her job make her an ideal real estate agent.

Ramona helped us buy our first house, and I couldn't recommend anyone better for the job- she got us exactly what we wanted for the price we wanted to pay, with no complications. She was engaged and helpful with every step of the process, and she also connected us with top notch lawyers, inspectors and contractors that we continue to use and recommend to others.

Ramona did a great job as my real estate agent for two purchases. I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent. When I decide to sell either of the properties I will definitely contact Ramona to be my sales agent. Joe Dusek, Old Town

My husband and I interviewed several Real Estate agents in the Fall of 2007 when we decided to start looking seriously for our first home. We chose Ramona because she was easy to work with and listened carefully to what we wanted. Many of the agents we'd come across in Open Houses were very pushy and we really disliked the idea of dealing with an overly aggressive person as first time home buyers. Ramona very patiently helped us through the process and showed us many properties as we changed and expanded our search criteria. When it seemed like we'd never find something, she assured us that there would be a great place we both loved and we just had to keep looking until we found it. In the end we purchased a condo we love. Although Ramona was not pushy with us, she did prove to drive a hard bargain when it came time to put in an offer and negotiate with the other side. We are very glad to have worked with Ramona, and are very happy in our new home. Lindsay Winn, Lakeview

Ramona helped me sell my brother's condo after he died suddenly last spring. I did not live in Chicago, had never lived in Chicago. I live in Atlanta, Georgia, not too close by. Ramona was recommended by a condo neighbor who had recently sold a unit with her. She was so positive and enthusiastic with our first phone conversation that I was fairly sure I would go with her as my agent. When I met her in person she was six months pregnant. I wondered how she could sell my property and have a baby, but she assured me she could do it. And she did. She was honest about the pros and cons of the unit and the uncertainty of the market. She helped me establish a price and later gave me sound advice about negotiating the final sale price. She helped me find someone to do an estate sale. She helped me, long distance, with whatever issues arose, with kindness and attention to detail. Ramona said she would work hard for me and she did. It was winter 2010/2011, a hard time to sell real estate, but I felt like my property was always on her agenda, always being marketed. For me one of Ramona's particular strengths was that she communicated with me frequently. Not all agents do that. Especially because I was selling the condo from 800 miles away, good communication was important to me. So I highly recommend Ramona to sell your property. She'll work hard, do her best and that will certainly do the job. Cathy, Ravenswood

Hilary and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work and help with the sale of our condo and purchase of our new home. We both agree that your knowledge of the Chicago condominium market and sales expertise greatly influenced how quickly our unit sold. As you remember, March 2010 was a tricky time to be selling a condo unit in this economic and real estate environment, yet we feel, all things considered, that we got an incredible return and we owe a great deal of this to your insight and efforts. Selling was a difficult transition, but you worked well to keep us focused on it being just one part of the whole plan, which was to help us find a home. As we looked at houses to purchase, you once again showed your knowledge of the neighborhoods we were interested in as you focused us in on what we could afford and where we would be “at home”. While Hilary and I often didn’t agree with each other as we searched, you were able to keep us moving forward and learning every weekend as we continued our hunt for a home. When looking back at the entire process, we know realize that your job not only entails understanding market conditions and comparables etc., but also being able to listen to two people who are trying to reconcile, as a couple, there own desires and needs, often quite contradictory. This may be the more difficult aspect for the agent. You were quite adept at listening and counseling us, individually and as a couple, to explain our situation within the context of the real estate market in our chosen neighborhoods, in a positive way. Once we found our “home” you continued to work with us through all of the remaining obstacles: negotiations, inspections, mortgage applications, all of which were extremely frustrating and unnerving for us but tempered by your calm and professionalism. The bottom line is we thank you for everything you did for us and we have and we will recommend you to our friends and family as a knowledgeable, professional and hard working real estate agent! Thanks again!! Dave and Hilary, Edison Park

Ramona takes great care in her work and is friendly and kind. From start to finish, she pays attention to details large and small and has a keen sense of the housing market in Chicago. She is incredibly valuable to a first-time home-buyer and explains everything clearly. I was new to Chicago and she introduced me to great neighborhoods that I hadn't considered. She is an effective -- even ambitious -- ambassador for her clients. I recommend her highly.Nora Hennessy, Ravenswood
