Ask Nancy Hotchkiss


We were first-time buyers, and we contacted Nancy because she was the seller's agent for the house that we were interested in viewing. At that time she was very helpful, providing us information about the house, as well as some local municipal requirements. After that we thought about whether we should hire an agent ourselves, but since we were not interested in any other houses, we decided to ask her to become a dual agent. This decision had a lot to do with the fact that during our house visit I sensed that she was knowledgeable, friendly, respectful, helpful, professional, and trustworthy. And she indeed was, throughout the process, and we are happy that she and the seller agreed to this dual agency.

She sent us information as needed, since we knew nothing. She was patient with us. She recommended inspectors, lawyers, electrician (we really needed to rely on her network, but we wanted to because we trusted her as a person).

We are extremely grateful for Nancy's expertise and the work that she and her office staff did to make our dream come true!

We looked on Zillow and saw she had a strong number of the listings in the area and knew we wanted someone with inside knowledge of the area as we understood homes sell quickly in Beverly. Once we met her, her easy going nature sealed the deal. We loved working with Nancy and she always made us feel like her number one client.

She made the difficult process of dealing with a bank foreclosed home much easier. I will highly recommend Nancy to anyone I know who is looking or selling.

- Owen Yanz

Nancy was incredibly helpful in obtaining records from the association we were working with to ensure I was comfortable and had all appropriate information before purchasing, which was very important and uncharted territory for me as a first time buyer. She organized many links and chains required to ensure a smooth purchasing process. She was professional, honest, and trustworthy. I could not be happier with my experience. I love my new condo!

- Kelly, Oak Lawn

We have known Nancy Hotchkiss for many years and have often heard of her expertise in the real estate field. When it came time to put our condo on the market, we did consider going with a realtor that dealt more frequently with downtown properties. However, after careful consideration, we felt that with the personal interest that Nancy takes in all her clients, we would be best served by her...and we were!

Nancy handled everything in an extremely professional manner. Her kind demeanor and charming personality had everyone in the building commenting on 'our realtor.'

We were quite proud to have Nancy represent us to the other realtors, the prospective buyers, and anyone she came into contact with during our sale. Speaking of which, Nancy met every realtor and buyer at the site and I believe that personal contact is what sold our unit so quickly.

As to advertising, the brochure and video that Nancy prepared presented our condo beautifully. She even took the time to reschedule the photographer and reshoot a picture of our balcony to show it at its best (spring vs. winter.) Her attention to detail is yet another factor that makes her special.

I believe this is a true testament to Nancy's expertise: There were 11 properties for sale in our building. I believe 9 remain. She worked tirelessly to sell our condo during a period of time that was unprecedented between the pandemic and civil unrest in the city. Needless to say, we are beyond grateful for her talents and would recommend her to anyone in the market to sell or buy a home.

- Laurel Brunell Orland Park

Nancy was wonderful to work with from day one. She was incredibly accommodating for all of our scheduling needs, patient, and a wonderful communicator throughout each step of the process. Nancy really wanted us to love whatever home we settled on and encouraged all of our questions. She was kind, professional, timely, and knowledgeable throughout.

- Annie, Chicago

Her advice, knowledge of the market and the neighborhood, and caring spirit are evident from the moment you first speak with her and she is a joy to work with.

Both come with nerves and emotions, and Nancy is so fantastic at helping everyone focus on having fun and looking forward to the years ahead in a new home.

Mrs Hotchkiss knows the neighborhood well. She gives a lot of information about recent sales, current market and pricing. She is helpful with staging and marketing the property. She keeps me informed of all activity in connection with the property. Outstanding agent! I have used her services for many property sales and will use her again. She receives my highest recommendations!

She is very kind, stayed on top of all aspects of the real estate deal. She also gave me helpful information that generated an offer price above asking price.

I was contacted by her assistant on one occasion, if I recall correctly. Everything went smoothly.

Exceptional agent!

- Nancy Dulay

Nancy has a reputation of being one of the best agents in our neighborhood.We had heard when Nancy gets a listing you can consider the house sold and she got the job done after many months trying to get it sold.

The negotiations with the buyers and Nancy's valuation of our property along with many comps showed she put in a huge effort to sell our house after trying to sell it ourselves. Her knowledge and laid back salesmenship is the best in the business.She was a pleasure to deal with and her knowledge of the whole selling procedure was truly an asset for us and guide us to the closing.

Nancy is a true professional and we will recommend her in the future.

We are grateful to Nancy for helping us find a home to meet the changing needs of our family and for finding the perfect buyers for our home of 24 years!

Nancy was a true partner who worked with us throughout the entire sales cycle.

Nancy was the perfect agent for us since this was the first time we were shopping and buying a home. She walked us through every step of the process, especially once we put our offer through; (e.g. explaining what earnest money was). She also communicated with us anytime we wanted by email, text, or phone. If she hadn't heard from us, she would reach out to see if we had any questions or if there was anything she could do. She was very quick to respond and to setup appointments to view possible houses.

I got Nancy Hotchkiss's contact information using Zillow's agent finder. She came up #1 for Beverly, Chicago, the neighborhood I was interested in buying in. She promptly returned my call and I felt immediately comfortable with her. She listens, is very easy going and easy to communicate with.

Nancy was a pro from start to finish. She clearly understands the process and knows how to handle both buyers and sellers – and other brokers, agents, etc. I had no trouble seeing any property I was interested in and Nancy was always ready to answer any question I might have about a property, an area, etc. Very responsive, knowledgeable and helpful. She also connected me with some great people who helped make my buying experience really easy.

Nancy is just awesome! I couldn't have asked for a better partner when buying my home in Beverly. I feel like I bought the perfect home for me with her help and couldn't be happier. I have every confidence in her & would highly recommend her to any seller or buyer.

- Matthew Rentschler, Beverly, Chicago
