What our amazing clients have to say...
Annie and her partner Audrey listed and sold our family house in Northfield, IL. After interviewing several realtors, I went with A&A based on their energy and understanding of the pool of younger buyers. Although I did not give it much credence at the time, they also brought a design and staging capability that was unique in the market. In two weeks they completely transformed our well-maintained but admittedly tired home. They were frugal with our money and knew just what to address and where to draw the line. Although we were late in the selling season, we quickly generated multiple offers and closed 6 weeks from going live at a price we were happy with. Additionally, I found them informed, strong on execution, and easy to work with.
“fantastic style and vision.”
We used Audrey on multiple occasions. When move to IL two years ago Audrey helped us decorate our living room and master bedroom. Audrey has fantastic style and vision. We completed the project within a tight deadline and spent approx. $10k, which was within our budget. More recently Audrey helped us update our second bath. That project was also completed within a tight timeframe and cost approx. $12k, which was exactly what Audrey estimated during our initial discussion. Audrey is also extremely flexible and accommodating, meeting us at our house and at various venders to provide advice and to select tile, fixtures, paint, etc. Audrey is a true pro and we plan to work with her on future projects (master bath, kitchen, etc...)

“dream to work with”
Annie was a dream to work with- she gave me great advice through the process, helped me build a great team and kept me under budget. She made sure I got the best bang for my buck and that I understood what that was throughout the process.
“talented, professional, driven, friendly”
"An offer within 2 DAYS of placing on the market and for OVER the list price - need I say more... Annie is talented, professional, driven, and friendly. I highly recommend Annie as your real estate agent."
"We had a great experience working with Annie! We were moving from the city to the north suburbs, and Annie's expertise about the North Shore was invaluable to us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a home on the North Shore."
“transformed my home”
To say Audrey transformed my home is an understatement. I found Audrey through a recommendation from a friend and couldn't have been happier. She helped me stage my home in a way I could've never imagined. Every person who has been in my home since her changes absolutely loves it! Her rate was reasonable and her furniture and decor choices were amazing given the prices. She is extremely efficient with her time which is often not seen with a consultant who charges an hourly rate. I would not hesitate in hiring Audrey for any future project and am confident the value she creates in your home far exceeds the expense. A very strong 5 stars!!!
“pleasant and highly professional.”
“taste is fantastic.”
Staging North Shore was a pleasure to work with. Audrey has a great attention to detail and budget when considering a project. Her creativity and resourcefulness were fantastic when making our house into a home without breaking the budget. Her eye is awesome and her taste is fantastic. I would use her again and again.
