    We are repeat customers of Maureen. She helped us buy/sell a home three years ago and was wonderful to work with. When our life situation changed and we needed to move again, Maureen was the only agent I considered calling. My family and I had some very specific requirements for a new home including the need for a separate living arrangement on the property for a special needs relative. Maureen helped us find the perfect home we needed. She also helped us secure a speedy closing in order to get our son into a new school before the school year started. Fantastic experience all around! ~ Andrew and Amber Nelson - Cary, IL

    Maureen was simply wonderful to work with. In considering sale of my townhome, I had to weigh market considerations and potential pricing against current rental income so there was a fair amount of preliminary research and discussion required prior to moving forward with the sale...from the very beginning, Maureen was patient, knowledgeable, helpful and assisted whenever needed in all facets of the sale process. Once on the market, her team's motivation and commitment to sell shown through brightly. I am completely happy with my decision to go with Maureen and would highly recommend her team. ~ Tom, Aurora, IL

    Maureen made this whole first time home buying experience easy breezy for my husband and I. We can't thank her enough for making it stress free.

    If you want your house sold and you want to work hassle free call Maureen ~ Kelly and Tim Kennedy Bay St. Louis Mississippi
    We purchased our first home with Maureen Forgette and couldn't have been happier with our purchase. Our first ever real estate transaction went so smoothly that when we were considering a new purchase, it was easy to contact her again to see if it could be possible. Immediately she started working through possible financial details to help us determine if we could afford a new property we were interested in. She took us to see the property within a week and shortly after that we had an offer accepted on that property and we were selling our first home! That entire process of pricing our home, preparing it to sell and showing it was flawless with the suggestions and advice of Maureen. Our first showing resulted in a full price offer within a week! From there, the rest was simple because of her. Her personal characteristics are part of what makes working with her so easy! Her communication is amazing and helped keep our stress level down while selling a house in order to buy our new property. She helped to make our sale and purchase go very smoothly. ~ Jordan Deener, McHenry
    Maureen was the absolute professional from start to finish ~ Gary klawinski mchenry
    Maureen worked hard for us and I dont believe there was a week that went by wirhout her and Pam Wagner bringing in clients, advertising, contacting potential buyers and other agents. We would highly recommend her and will gladly use her in the future if we ever need to buy or sell property. Excellent service and totally knowledgeable. Pam Wagner was also a gem! We are sorry she moved. Maureen was the right choice for us ~ Gloria Vendegna McHenry
    Unlike the other brokers interviewed, Maureen never attempted to criticize our property to talk us down on the asking price We were thrilled with Maureen. We have bought and sold many properties and she is the best realtor we have ever used. There is not even a close second. Maureen went more than the extra mile to make the sale happen including arranging for snow removal, fixing an alarm on our sump pump, buying garage door openers that got lost, and more I am sure that I have forgotten. ~ Phil and Eileen Wood Salem,OR formerly of McHenry, IL
    Maureen and Pam Wagner sold our home and the experience was never stressful or complicated when dealing with both of them. They were always available and they are very professional. They knew everything that was going on with considerable changes before closing occurring. We would definitely recommend these two fine real estate broker and agent. ~ Cindy Gebbia McHenry, IL
    Maureen made the process of finding a place to leave so easy and fun! She answered al of my questions and was very helpful! Would highly recommend! ~ Courtney Matthys
    Maureen knows how to get sales and rentals done fast and in your best interest. I really trust Maureen and would highly recommend her to my friends ~ Kent Rouse
    When our mom passed away wand we needed to sell her townhouse I called Maureen because I always see her social media posts about her new listings and closing day celebrations for her buyers and sellers. Maureen and Pam sat down with us prepared with comparable properties that were listed or had sold within the past year. This was so helpful to let us know where we should be starting. They also explained the whole process and what we should expect. Maureen and Pam set up the house for photos and viewing and it looked great. After only five days and 7 showings we had an offer that was almost exactly what she had originally estimated. After the contract was accepted Maureen stayed in contact. She would text, call or email every couple days with where we were at. That reassured us that everything was going smoothly. Closing day came less than two months after our mom had passed. Having such a easy sales experience with Maureen allowed our family to take care of other matters and not worry how the house sale was going. Thanks so much for taking such great care of us. Maureen and Pam are true processionals. ~ Brian Durkin
    Dealt with Maureen and Pam Wagner as a team and could not have been happier. Our agent was out of work due to illness and recommended Maureen and Pam. Everything was professional and personnel at the same time. House sold quickly. Have told others do not hesitate to use them as your agents. Would have brought them out of state with us to purchase our new home if we could have. Thank you girls. ~ John and Donna

    I couldn't have asked for a better agent to walk through the home selling and buying process with my family and I over the past 6 months. Maureen helped us find and purchase our dream home in a great location and at a price we could easily afford. She also got our previous home sold at the price we needed despite the challenging market situation for the size and type of our house. I had a challenging approval process with my lender and Maureen stepped in to help move the process along and get my loan approved. Maureen feels like family to us now. There isn't a better real estate agent in all of Illinois and I would recommend her 100% to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. ~ Andrew Nelson, Volo

    Maureen was the second agent that I found (the other was with a different reality group) and I am so glad that I decided to look around for an agent that was right for me. I was looking for someone with the experience to help me navigate being a first time home buyer and while working with Maureen it became clear that her experience is second to none. Maureen took the time to explain to me the entire process in great detail and was always available to answer any questions I had. I was also very pleased with Maureen's ability to work quickly, efficiently and maintain a high level of detail, sometimes scheduling multiple viewings in one day and working around my busy schedule. After I put in an offer the great service continued, with her hard work to facilitate a smooth and easy closing. Buying my first home was really easier than I expected with the help of Maureen and I would highly recommend her to anyone. 5 star service! Thank you Maureen! ~ Vincenzo Purpura, Crystal Lake

    we had many conversations over the time our house was on the market, she always had time to keep me upbeat when I was getting low. it was a good experience during a very stressful time. ~ liz curley, gassville
    Maureen was the best real estate agent I've dealt with. She was thoughtful and so very understanding. She went above and beyond anything she had to do. I would tell anyone she's the person to help you buy or sell your home. I can't say enough great things about her. She made our sale easy, I can't believe she was even concern to where we would be moving after the sale of our house and offered to help us find a place to move to. She's the best and most thoughtful agent I've ever met. I love this women and can't say enough great things about her. Maybe she should be running for president -- she'd win 5 times over. I wish Maureen the best, but I know she'll do great because she's who she is. One fantastic lady !!! Phyllis Wallaert ~ Phyllis and Wayne Wallaert
    My experience of working with Century 21 and especially with Maureen Forgette, was excellent and I would definitely refer family and friends to her. Her response time was always quick, she was very helpful, and very kind.

Although I was so happy to find my new home, I was sad to say goodbye to her. She proved to be an excellent realtor. Thank you Maureen ~ Kendall Trexler, Woodstock
