Purchasing a home is a difficult, anxious and darn right stressful process. You deal with many characters throughout the process, some who add to that stress and some who are just out to make a buck. Sherri, Mike and Lauren were there every step of the way to ease our journey and navigate through the road blocks. They truly care about getting to know you as an individual and fitting you with a home that you desire. They are genuinely kind people who are very knowledgeable about all aspects of purchasing a home. Every time we ran into a snag or had a question about anything to do with our home purchase (and as first time home buyers we had plenty of questions), they were readily available to walk us through whatever particular detail we were not clear about. There were many times we were frantic and scared about a certain segment of the process, but after speaking to them we felt again at ease. They are absolutely fantastic at what they do and I would not hesitate to enthusiastically recommend them to anyone.

When we asked the mortgage company to hook us up with a Realtor with lots of experience, they delivered! Sherri and Mike really understand the Barrington market, know what to watch out for, etc., and were just great all around. It's great to have a team where if one happened to be unavailable at the moment (e.g., showing a house to someone else), the other would respond immediately. They kept each other informed all along, so it really didn't matter who we ended up talking to, and they both provided great service. Would highly recommend them.

I cannot praise Sherri and Mike Esenberg highly enough. When faced with the tough decision to sell my mother's house of 66 years, I was incredibly relieved as they walked me through everything. And, even more incredibly, they sold the house within a few months so that I could focus on relocating my mother rather than worrying about keeping an old house functioning through the winter and, further, worrying about how to pay for my mother's assisted living housing. Everything went more smoothly than I could have imagined, and everything turned out very well. I earnestly recommend Sherri and Mike to anyone contemplating selling a house.

My wife and I were looking to buy a home in the western Chicago suburbs and learned of Mike and Sherri Esenberg via our credit union. Let me say that right off the bat they were impressive and demonstrated themselves as professional and courteous. They took the time to listen to our desires and then got us setup to receive prospective homes in our targeted area(s) via email. Our search spanned almost 3 months and they were always prompt and thorough in their responses. They took the time to educate us on various aspects of the homes we viewed from items that were unique and desirable to circumstances we might think twice about like homes with older windows and HVAC systems. Perhaps the most important aspect was they always let us make the final decision on things and always pointed out the options on the table in any given circumstance. Lastly, after a very productive search they gave us a beautiful housewarming basket at the closing. I truly appreciated working with this dynamic duo and if you are in the market for a new home I am certain you will too.

Sherri and Mike took my real estate transaction to an exceptional level. They strategically advised and maneuvered me from a scenario where I was expecting significant loss to nice profit! Why trust your success to anybody else but the top 1% performing team?!

Mike and Sherri came highly recommended to us as we were relocating for work from a different state. We couldn’t have been happier with the level of expertise and guidance that they provided. Mike and Sherri work as an excellent team and both have deep knowledge of the North Suburb area and also the market. Leading up to our house hunting trip; we had two conference calls and uncountable e-mails to discuss potential properties. During our house hunting trip; they spent a full three days with us; with an offer made and accepted on the third day! Mike and Sherri made a major life changing experience easy and we are very grateful.

Very responsive, professional and honest. With their expertise, we were able to get an offer right near our initial list price! Thanks, Mike, Sherri and team!

Mike and Sherri exhibited the following skills-strengths during the sale of our house: Great follow up throughout the process. We never had to call them for an update. Honest assessments when making decisions. Mike will not tell you what you want to hear. He will tell you what you need to know to make the best decision for your property. Good communication to make sure everyone is on the same page and we are anticipating potential road blocks. Demonstrated great ability to work with all kinds of people and stay focused on the task at hand and not let the wide range of personalities that become involved in the process get in the way. They can be patient when necessary but also assertive when needed to keep the process moving. And last it’s the little things they do throughout the process that all add up to a successful transaction!

As first-time buyers, my husband and I needed real estate agents we could trust and that had extensive experience to compensate for our lack thereof. Mike and Sherri Esenberg went beyond my expectations. They were patient and incredibly knowledgeable—not just on home values, the market, neighborhoods, school districts, etc. They helped us figure out what Mortgage we could afford and got us in touch with trustworthy professionals like a home inspector and lawyer. They fought hard on our behalf to get us a great deal, and we couldn’t be happier with the home we ended up in, now with our little boy. I have already recommend them to first time buyers, those ready to buy their next home, sellers, and people just thinking about making a move. Thanks Mike and Sherri!

Mike and Sherri are amazing at what they do. I worked with Sherri on my first purchase in 2009 and she was a great negotiator. We worked with Mike and Sherri again on our foreclosure property in a highly competitive neighborhood (and market) and were able to get a fantastic deal. They're down to earth, easy to work with, very knowledgeable, and genuine. I would highly recommend working with them on a purchase or sale. Thanks for being great at what you do.

These two are awesome! I've felt with my fair share of realtors over the years and these two exceeded my every wish! Always on top of everything! They would drop anything to help us with questions or concerns. Highly recommend to everyone and anyone looking for a home!

These guys are the best and come highly recommended! We won’t trust anyone but Mike & Sherri to help us buy and sell our home!

Awesome and super helpful through the whole process! Would definitely recommend them for your home buying needs!

Excellent Realtors! Very Responsive...sold our home & helped us buy our new home. I was not easy to work with & they were extremely patient & very helpful through this stressful time. I would highly recommend them

Great experience working with Sherri and Mike! They were very flexible and responsive with any questions we had. Closing was painless and easy. We highly recommend Sherri and Mike if you are looking to buy or sell in the Chicagoland market!

Anytime we asked to view a home to buy, they said ‘yes’. Also, they sold our house in less than one week. Great to work with and highly recommended! If we need to ever buy/sell again the future we’ll definitely utilize their professional services.

Represented my family in selling and purchasing. Above and beyond. Extremely knowledgeable. Most impressive and highly recommend.
