    Liane was a welcome departure from an agent we had begun our process with. She saved us thousands when it came to making the house ready to sell. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about setting a price that was realistic and profitable. She came and helped me move furniture and make suggestions for staging. Liane went over every offer with us and explained pros and cons of each one. Liane made an overwhelming process manageable because of her professionalism, knowledge, and dedication to her customers. ~ Kelly Wuchte. Oak Park, IL
    Liane was great! She provided a clear plan to go about the sale and everything was executed perfectly. If we were buying or selling in the area again, we would definitely go to her.

Liane's marketing plan was effective and got our house sold quickly. ~ David Vollstedt, St. Francis, WI

You are an asset to the real estate world. ~ Janet Winters, Sycamore, Illinois
    The short sale process was long, drawn-out, and complicated. Liane did a great job explaining the steps of the process to me in terms I could understand. She also did a great job keeping me well-updated as we received offers. Since I had moved halfway across the country for a new job, I appreciated the high level of communication and little things, such as local recommendations for yard care and snow removal. I appreciate everything Liane did to help me close the final deal! ~ Stacey Erdman, Mesa, AZ

    Liane O' Keefe was recommended by a family member and we were very happy with everything she did for us in the sale of our rental home. We would also recommend Liane to anyone looking for a highly knowledgeable realtor. ~ Gayle & Carl (Steve) Lindbeck, Sycamore, IL
    Liane O'Keefe was instrumental to our sale process and to achieving the end result we were after. She's imminently knowledgeable about the local market, she's experienced in the difficult types of sales that we were considering, and she has a network of colleagues and associates who as a team provide all of the necessary expertise for difficult sales. Liane is friendly, approachable, and professional, and she made what was a very uncomfortable process for us a little more relaxed and manageable. From the beginning, Liane was careful to explain the realities of the local market and the current real estate trends in the wake of the housing crash. She made sure that we were informed every step of the way, and explained anything we didn't understand so that we were always able to make informed decisions. While we didn't always like what we heard, we completely appreciated having all of the information rather than being led in one direction or another based on her wishes. That sort of honesty and openness is rare in real estate, and we were grateful for it. We took it as the first sign that we'd selected the right Realtor. Liane gave us an excellent recommendation for a Short Sale attorney, and without that attorney we likely wouldn't have achieved our sale either. From inspectors to appraisers to lawyers, Liane has built relationships with solid, dependable folks who are all as professional and as highly recommendable as Liane herself is. When we saw the quality of professionals that Liane regularly worked with, we became even more convinced we'd make the right choice. Each of the people we encountered throughout the sale were key to our success, and their familiarity with each other and their trust in each others' thoughts and opinions resulted in a well-organized, concerted effort that made our sale happen. I would strongly recommend Liane O'Keefe to any of my family or friends, and if we were to relocate to northern Illinois she would be the first call we made. We couldn't be happier that Liane was our Realtor, and we wouldn't change a thing if we were to do it all over again. (Please, let's not, though. One is enough!) ~ Josh Cusick - Rochelle, IL
    Liane is a top notch realtor. She is professional, focused and gets the job done. Much appreciated. ~ Nancy Turk Sycamore IL

    Liane was delightful to work with. She was very informative, efficient, knowledgeable and very patient with me (I hadn't sold a home in many years). My home sold in 6 days, and I got more money for it than I had expected. I will recommend Liane O'Keefe to all of my family and friends....they will love her! ~ Mrs. K ~ Sycamore, Illinois
