Lisa Wenzel and her team has been an integral part of my home ownership experience since moving to the Chicagoland area. Not only did her team help me find my home when moving here from nearly 400 miles away, but her team executed the purchase, and sale, of my home flawlessly. Lisa Wenzel and her team provided me with daily updates regarding changes and critical information, personal security in my investment, and hospitality that I have never experienced with any other agent. Lisa and her team were efficient, fast-paced, and accurate in meeting my needs when I was purchasing my home, and when I was selling it.
