Great experience! Helped me purchase my first home and was nothing but patient and helpful the whole way. Would definitely recommend. ~ Amanda Crystal Lake
Lena was great! She knew what we were looking for as we had specific needs and she was quick to let us know when something became available that might work for us. Very informative and I trusted Lena's opinions. ~ Dina Tenayuca
We have bought and sold a few homes over the years, as well as used relators to help us rent out a project. Lena is hands down the BEST relator we have ever worked with. She helped us rent our place out a few times and also with the sale of the property. What sets her apart from others is she is genuine and really cares for her clients. She spends time building a relationship with her clients - to the point you almost feel like you are the only client she has. She was extremely responsive to our concerns and feedback and always ensured we were actively engaged in making decisions around how to best list the property, while guiding us with her expertise. She was extremely transparent and kept us apprised of all relevant information. She is also an excellent negotiator and proactively worked with other relators (forging relationships along the way) to help move potential offers along. She did a great job looking at buyer feedback and taking into account potential small changes we could make with our listing/marketing - which resulted in an immediate sale. We just loved working with her! I could go on and on.... but in summary, she is accountable, proactive, collaborative, easy to work with, extremely professional, and demonstrated great expertise in the overall real estate market. We will never work with anyone else going forward. ~ Mike and Laura Prestler, Carpentersville
Lena did a great job listing our house and making it available right away. We had multiple showings and an offer within days of our listing. She truly works for you and wants you to get the best of your sale and buying experience. ~ Matthew Goetz, Lake in the Hills
Lena went above and beyond helping our family find our forever home. She responded to all our questions in a timely manner and was available 7 days a week. She definitely made this whole process very easy and we always knew she had our families best interest in mind. ~ Todd Francis, Algonquin
Thank you for your amazing support and perseverance on our unique and challenging property purchase. No one imagined how long and emotional the process was going to be, but you stayed involved, showed determination, were compassionate and respectful of our decisions and needs. You supported us through a roller coaster of emotions and heard us out as we vented on our ups and downs. You are a genuine people person and know how to connect with your clients.
Our new home purchase had such significance in all aspects of our families future and we are extremely grateful for your genuine nature and initiative to please. We look forward to keeping in touch and maintaining our friendship.
With sincerest gratitude,
Laura, Angel and Abigail ~ The Uscanga Family - Huntley, IL

Lena Maratea was wonderful during this whole process with me, she talked me off so many ledges! ha - ha I would recommend Lena all day long! ~ Erica Reining
We didn't "select" Lena. She was the sellers agent and became a dual agent due to circumstances. However we could not have selected anyone better. Lena was wonderful to work with.
Lena was professional, understanding and compassionate. She took time to explain everything to us and made sure we were comfortable with explanations. She was thorough and provided valuable information regarding our home purchase. There were many times when we would contact her well after hours because I was nervous about something and she never made me feel like I was a bother or that I was foolish to be nervous etc..
Lena was definitely the reason why our experience was an excellent experience. ~ Denise K and Rich D Algonquin
