Real Estate Broker Reviews

Roberto & Celina Perez

Lisa Wenzel is an outstanding and wonderful realtor to whom I would recommend to everyone because she has not only helped my husband and I search for our first home, but has become such a great friend to have. In the past two years, she always is available if you have any questions or if you just want to call and just talk to see how everything is going. She definitely deserves and outstanding award for her overall work that she puts in day in and day out and is willing to help find you the place of your dreams. I remember when she was working with other clients besides me and she still made us feel like we were the only ones and not only working during the week but on the weekends as well. She is an individual who I feel should be recognized for her talent that she puts into her work and her overall friendliness to her clients. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that I know who is having trouble searching for a home.

Dan Schmitt

The Wenzel Select Properties team helped me, as a first time home buyer find a place to call home. It ended up being a very long process, only due to the extraordinary long time it took to go through an initial short sale purchase. The Wenzel Select team advised me from the start exactly what to expect, however me being a naive first time home buyer, decided to pursue the short sale. Every step of the way the team assisted me with questions I had about the purchase process. After my patience wore thin on waiting for the banks to do what they needed to do, the Wenzel Select Properties team advised that I continue searching for a new home since I couldn’t wait any longer. They were there for me every step of the way, and we walked through plenty of properties until we came across “the one”. It was definitely apparent that this team did what was in the best interest of their client, and not for themselves. I would absolutely recommend Wenzel Select Properties to anyone looking to purchase a new home and can say that it was a pleasure working with them.

Melissa made finding our dream house simple and fun! We’re so happy with our new home!

Joe Burke

My experience with Freddy Wenzel was simply outstanding. My wife and I were looking to downsize to a smaller home in a very limited geographical area. Freddy worked with us on a very personal basis and helped us to understand what we really wanted. At one point, Freddy even told us that “You might decide to buy this house, but I will not sell it to you!” Freddy is knowledgeable and always available. he would always show up on short notice and take us to see potential homes. It was his local area knowledge and networking that enabled us to purchase our new home. We simply could not have done this without him. I have been watching the listing since our offer was accepted and there has still not been another home like the one Freddy found!

Andrew Boutros

Lisa did a fabulous job in helping me secure a rental property in Chicago, a city in which I had never lived in before. I had a comprehensive list of requirements and features that were important to me. Lisa helped me to find a place that satisfied each of my search criterions and did so under an extremely tight deadline. Lisa also was extremely effective in the negotiation’s process. Lisa is optimistic, encouraging, determined, and mighty cheerful. I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends.

Matt & Julie Chalberg

Lisa is very knowledgeable about real estate and knows how to discuss matters while making the client feel equally involved in the process.

Susan Adams

Lisa was in control of the process from the very beginning. She responded to our calls and emails promptly regardless of the time of day, or day of the week. We received an offer within a week, and Lisa expertly guided us through several rounds of negotiation. Lisa won our confidence with her energy, commitment, and knowledge; we would highly recommend her.

Shelby Amodeo & Michael Baum

Melissa Nelson was beyond amazing with not only finding us the perfect home but throughout the whole process and beyond. It took over two years to find the right home for us, not once did Melissa ever rush us or make us feel like a burden. Melissa stuck with us through many houses till we found the one we wanted to make our home. As first time home buyers we had many questions and had no clue how the home buying process went, Melissa and the rest of the crew helped us every step of the way. Melissa is still answering questions I have even after closing on our home. Melissa was more than dedicated and helpful with the home buying process and there’s nobody else I would have rather done it with. Melissa and the rest of the staff at Wenzel Select Properties are highly recommended with your future home buying/selling endeavors.

The Corey’s

When we decided to purchase our first home together, we immediately chose Lisa Wenzel and Wenzel Select Properties. We felt confident our needs as buyers would be addressed during the entire process. Lisa was extremely knowledgeable and professional. She understood the market and found compatible listings based on our needs. Lisa displayed superior negotiating skills which concluded in a mutual agreement between both parties. We highly recommend Lisa Wenzel and Wenzel Select Properties for any prospective buyer–they will put you first.

Atika Daouiou & Noureddine Othmane

I really don’t know how to thank you for working so hard to get me this condo at this unbelievable price!!!!!!!! I’m all about moved in to my new place, I changed it a little bit in my way. I am so happy and thank you again and again. I will always remember you and pray for you. God bless you.

Martyna Szyc

Melissa was our realtor from Wenzel Select Properties. She was very sweet, professional, and very accommodating. She showed us a great deal of properties that matched our desires for a new home. She was quick to help with any issues that arose. She did her research and was able to answer all of our questions readily. Also, she spent over 4 hours with us during our inspection! Thanks to her help we are living in a beautiful home. I would recommend Wenzel Select Properties to anyone who is looking for a fast track to their next home.

Anthony & Rebekka Camacho

When we were looking to buy our first house neither of us knew a lot about the process, and we didn’t know how to find a good realtor. One day we came across the Wenzel Select Properties site. We decided to meet with Lisa, and that was the best decision we could have made. She was exactly what we needed. Lisa was upfront and honest about what she saw in the houses. She was tireless in helping us find the perfect house; we looked at around fifty houses before deciding on the one we bought. She took us step by step through the process in an easy to understand, friendly manner. Lisa was also very accommodating with our schedules, gladly meeting with us late at night and on weekends. Overall, the experience with Lisa and Wenzel Select Properties was a great one. We highly recommend the Wenzels to anyone looking to buy or sell property.

Mark & Diane Frankel

Lisa, I wanted send you a note about how pleased I was with your companies guidance in the sale of my home. It was with your expertise that within days of me saying “I need to sell my home quickly” you did it within 60 days.

Again thank you and I will always recommend your company.

Jason Buckhout

In today’s housing market, selling a home seems like an impossible task. At least it was for our first realtor, but having switched to Lisa, we saw an immediate change. She worked much harder and was more dedicated to selling our home. This was refreshing experience and gave us hope that we would actually sell our home after it being on the market for a couple of years. I don’t think we could have sold our home without her.
Thank you Lisa!

Beverly Richardson

Lisa answered my e-mail request for help in finding a rental house in the Downers Grove area. Upon our arrival Lisa had a number of places for me to look at and she was very helpful. She drove me around and found us a place in just a few days. She was professional and friendly and I feel I have made a friend for life.

Kirstin Hopkins Westmont

Melissa was very helpful throughout our year long journey in finding the perfect house. She was available
whenever we needed her and found out anything we asked her about. I would strongly recommend her to
anyone I know.

-Carol Fautsch

Lisa, thank you for getting our home sold on Thomas Avenue. We really appreciated all of your good help and all of your up to date communication throughout this transaction. Hopefully someday our paths will cross again!

Rachel Buonafede

We worked with Melissa to find our rental home this past fall. Not only was she extremely patient but she was very accommodating in her schedule as well. We have both cats and dogs as well as certain criteria and locations that we were looking for which did not make the search that easy but Melissa was very helpful and was able to find the perfect place for us. With some realtors if you are looking just for a rental vs. purchasing a home they can give a little less effort and may not be as accommodating but that was never the case with Melissa. When the time comes for us to purchase a home we will certainly reach out to Wenzel Select Properties.

Laura Clay

I would recommend Melissa Nelson with Wenzel Select Properties to anyone and everyone! She is professional, motivated, consistent, and thorough! On top of that, she is positive, friendly, and funny!
I contacted Melissa to help me find a house to rent. I needed to find a home for my children, self, and husband. I had a ton of questions and concerns. I also had specific criteria that I needed to find in a home, neighborhood, and school district. Melissa was quick to respond and help answer all of my questions. We looked at many, many rental properties. During the process, I contacted Melissa often to ask questions or to add another property to the viewing list. Melissa promptly responded to me, set up viewing times, and organized our search. She really worked hard to help me find what I was looking for. We found the right house in the right neighborhood. My family and I are very happy! Thank you, Melissa! I could not have done it without you!

Tim, Renee and Sofia Schoper

Wenzel select properties, Ltd. is a wonderful real estate firm! When my husband and I found out that the sellers accepted our offer, I was in labor waiting for the arrival of our unknown baby at the time. Lisa and her staff made the process easy since I was a new mom with our baby girl. We are extremely happy with our new home and all the future moments to be had.

Jeb & Lindsey Brown

I contacted Lisa from Georgia when I found out I would be attending school in the Chicago area. She was such a pleasure to work with. When none of the properties worked out from the first day of showings, she set up some last minute showings before we flew back to GA. When we found a place, she took care of everything and kept in constant communication. I would definitely recommend her as an agent, very professional and a delightful person!!

Lea Miller

Lisa, Thank you very much for the time and effort you put into helping me find my first place. It’s been a long journey, but the end result is better than I could have ever imagined. Your skills as a realtor can only be matched by your generosity as a person. I am so glad we met all those years ago and I felt such an immediate connection. It is one that will last for many more years. Thank you also for the great Sutton Calendar, it’s hanging at work by my desk and I love it every day. The paper organizer is great. I spent an hour the night it came putting tons of stuff in it. It’s perfect just like my new home!

Dependable, trustworthy, diligent, fun, straightforward, great negotiator. Couldn’t have bought my condo without her.

Amy Sullivan

I have worked with Wenzel Select Properties a number of times over the past few years in both, selling and buying a home as well as listing rental properties. It has always been a smooth experience. I have never worked with another realtor as professional and reliable as Lisa. When selling our first home it was on the market and we had an offer in less than one week!

Ashley and Michael Vimont

It has been great working with Melissa Nelson from Wenzel Select Properties in buying our home. If you want reliable and hardworking then you will not be disappointed. Not only is she smart and knows all you need to know about buying a home, she is also honest and truly cares that you buy a home that is everything you want. We are 100% sure we have found our “forever home” with the help of Melissa. If we ever needed to move again, for whatever reason, we know who to go to. Thank you Melissa!

The Svehla’s

Lisa and her staff had done a wonderful job of assisting us with putting a home on the market – then when the market tanked, she worked with us to place a renter in our property in record time. She is excellent with follow thru and communication.

Galina Buckhout

You are the best! You did the job of the attorneys the bank people, the appraisal guy and anyone else! You did it all and your constant faith helped you through that painful short sale process! You are simply the best as Tina Turner sings!!!

Marianne Yurko

I met Lisa several years ago and was immediately impressed by her enthusiasm and her entrepreneurial spirit.

Recently I had Lisa help me with a condo I had to sell, and was very concerned about how long it would take in today’s market. Lisa offered a realistic plan to getting it sold, to include working with a professional stager, and within three months of having it listed we had a solid offer, despite the large number of units also for sale in the complex. It was also slightly complicated because it was a short sale and a reverse mortgage. Lisa got the deal closed within 60 days!

If you want the job done professionally and you want to work with someone who knows how to get the job done, Lisa is the one to call.

David & Sam James

My husband and I were thrilled to have Wenzel Select Properties market and sell our home. We were going through the normal emotional upheaval that comes with losing a loved one. While conducting an estate sale to remove items from my mother-in-laws home we met and chatted with the many people that stopped by. A month later the home was ready to go on the market. Lisa Wenzel and her team were amazingly patient with us as we were new to the process and had no idea where to start. Wenzel Select Properties made the experience painless and the home was sold in exactly 6 months. We would recommend Lisa Wenzel highly to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home. Their attention to our needs and anticipation of our questions made us much better buyers when we were looking for our next home in Texas.

Debbie Raymond

We bought our first home with the help of Lisa and things just went so fast. We put our offer in and it was accepted immediately. Our closing was complete within two weeks and in the house quicker than I could imagine. Thank you Lisa for a great job. We love our house!

The Sheaffer’s

I have had difficulty renting my condo in the past, but this time because Lisa was in charge, the condo was rented in less than a month and for a 2-year lease. Because I live out of state, Lisa worked closely with me to get the condo ready – new paint throughout and everything sparkling clean. When we had an emergency due to leakage, Lisa was at the condo within an hour to correct the problem.

I highly recommend Lisa for your realty needs whether it be listing your home to sell or to rent.

Lynne VanHorn

My experience with Wenzel Select Properties was awesome, beginning to end. I first met Lisa when I found a property on a real estate rental website. She was the listing agent. The house wasn’t what I hoped for, but as I looked at it she asked me questions about what I really needed. She never tried to talk me into what I didn’t want. Instead she helped get me get signed up for automated notification if new listings that met my criteria.
I was a difficult customer. My actual moving date was in constant flux and I was very picky with a difficult schedule. Melissa and Lisa worked with me for nearly 8 months. Although I kept changing my mind, they never gave up on me. Towards the end of my search properties were being snatched up so fast I could barely keep up. Melissa was terrific, she would schedule showings and get things moving quickly so I would not miss out.
Melissa and Lisa’s help was invaluable as I was not familiar with the area and they helped me to know what the pros and cons of the areas were. When all was said and done, I had the perfect place for me and Melissa even helped me find a new hair stylist. Lisa and Melissa are more than real estate agents. They are neighbors who want what’s best for you. I am so thankful for their service!

William David Astor

Freddy was the third realtor that I interviewed to sell my late father’s house. My father was an architect and engineer and had designed the house, which was where I grew up. As I showed Freddy the house I began to realize that there was something different about him. His questions and comments revealed considerable attention to detail and also knowledge of materials and construction. More importantly, he listened very closely to the story of my father and the house, and therefore could relate to what I was going through on a personal level, and also understand what I wanted for the property’s future. Choosing Freddy was the best decision I could have made. His marketing strategy was excellent – he hired a home staging consultant who provided many useful recommendations and a professional photographer who came up with beautiful pictures. The open house attracted a record attendance and generated multiple offers, all but one of which were above asking price. Needless to say, the entire experience and the final sale exceeded my expectations.

Alan Richardson

Lisa was great. Got us a great house and showed my wife all around the area.
