After living many years in San Francisco, Vanessa decided to return home to the Midwest where she began her career as a Chicago Realtor. She joined the Michael Hall Group as a Licensed Executive Assistant where she worked directly with Michael, assisting in all aspects of the transaction. During this time, she was able to fine tune her skills with buyer and seller clients to be able to provide the quality of service expected of the Michael Hall Group. During her free time Vanessa enjoys being a new mother and dining out in her Andersonville neighborhood.Vanessa believes being a real estate agent is not just about the sale, but also about the experience and service provided to each and every client.
Sales and Marketing Coordinator
Michael is a true professional with years of experience, a canny ability to evaluate and understand how to stage a house and market it to best effect.
We had never sold before, so when we embarked on our sale we were hoping for the best but prepared for the worst - we were of the opinion our place would be difficult to sell.
We really felt like Mike really cared about us and wanted to do everything possible to help in the sale of our home. He handled the sale of our home with professionalism and honesty. We felt very good trusting his comments and recommendations. We were very happy with his service as he did an excellent job. He also was who we recommended to our friends who were selling and they loved him too.
Mike is so efficient and so helpful. He is a pleasure to be with, absolutely honest and thorough from start to finish. He’s also very well versed in the strategies of pricing and negotiation. I would recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. He is absolutely the best!
Thankfully, someone recommended to us to Michael and he was amazing! Incredibly supportive and communicative, honest and hard working. We ended up being under an extremely tight timeline, and Michael managed to get our property sold just in the nick of time. He rocks!!
Mike was absolutely wonderful and we would highly recommend him. By the end of the whole process, he felt more like a friend than a business partner. We will certainly use him when the time comes to sell our home again.

10 Tips for Sellers
Some upgrades may be worth the investment.
Almost every buyer starts their search online and decides which homes they want to view based on the photos.
Sellers often think they should start the price high and then lower it later if the house fails to sell, but the first 30 days a home is on the market is when it gets the most showing activity.
I ask all of my clients to write a letter/list, or make a video with me which we can post on YouTube telling prospective buyers what exactly you have loved about living in your home.
