Tell Us Your Story

Dear Catherine, Thank you so much for all of your guidance, advice, information, patience, toddler watching & wrangling.

We know this process has been a success due to your assistance, and we're so grateful.  Please feel free to use us for a reference, if you ever need it, and to stay in touch! All the best,  Susanne, Keegan and Sloane Riley

Susanne Riley

Dear Catherine, I must thank you for all the help that you gave me while selling my mother's house.

I don't believe that I was lucky in any way to sell the house so fast, but I know it only sold because of all your advice and knowledge of the market. I know that the house was not the most expensive house that you have sold and that the commission was small, but you made me feel that this sale was very important to you. Thank you for all your hard work. Charlie Pfau

 Catherine LaBelle is my realtor for one reason, she understands the value of money and how hard I work for it and she's willing to work just as hard to ensure I get the best real estate value.

  I'm the guy who hates to leave a single dollar on the table.  Having found the house I wanted Catherine got down in the trenches with me and went through more than a dozen negotiations with the seller.  She promised me we would find the lowest price and we certainly did.  And she even kept the seller happy as we drove the deal to the point it needed to be.  Catherine is knowledgeable about so much of the real estate business and surrounds herself with experts that she can bring to every deal.  Catherine LaBelle will be my realtor when I sell this house and when I buy my next one.

Catherine Dugan LaBelle provided excellent service and was very knowledgeable about the area.

  She took the time to ensure we found the perfect home for our family.  She identified construction concerns and was in tune with home values. She went the extra mile and made this one of the best home buying experiences ever.  Thanks Catherine!

"Catherine's great knowledge and professionalism within the market she knows so well, is just remarkable.

She helped me take this sale process one step at a time. Catherine prepared me as the seller for all showings, so that there were no unexpected events. Each and every showing went very smooth! Every concern I had was properly addressed in a timely manner, leaving no unanswered questions for me. A wonderful sense of peace came to me as Catherine helped me through the final stages of this sale process of my home. She worked diligently to bring about a good closing, as well as helping me to transition to the next chapter of my life! I remain extremely grateful to Catherine LaBelle and her fine level of professionalism, along with her gracious kindness to me as her client."Midge Ruhl111 Acacia Dr APT 406, Indianhead Park, IL 60525

Hi Catherine: I have been meaning to email you for the past few weeks, but this new house has been keeping us very very busy!

  I wanted to take a moment of your time to thank you for your outstanding customer service! You are such a sweet person and it was such a pleasure getting to know you and working with you. Thank you for helping us find our home! We have been working hard on the home and by Christmas we hope to be settled in. We have ripped up all of the carpets and will be installing hardwood throughout the house. I spend about 4 days scrubbing the kitchen, I have no idea how those people were able to eat out of that kitchen!  Slowly but surely it is coming along! J You will have to stop by when it is all done. Once again, thank you for everything! I wish you all the best!   Oana Oprean

Catherine, Per our phone discussion, I regret to inform you that I have decided not to sell my home.

  You're services and the support of Baird and Warner have exceeded my expectations of a realtor.  I will certainly return for your services when the time for me to sell the home is right.  Likewise, I will highly recommend you directly to friends and neighbors looking to purchase or sell a home. Again, I greatly appreciate your service and your patience with me during this process.  If you can use the home's marketing materials and fact that we got 2 offers in  6 days, please do.

Catherine We really appreciate all of the hard work you've done for us.

I'm 100% sure our house wouldn't have sold so quickly if we worked with anyone else. You truly went above and beyond. Thank you for being so patient and dedicated throughout this entire process. Katie and Jarrod

Katie Bogucki

It was great to work with Catherine LaBelle; she is so much fun to work with and treated us as friends and not just buyers.

  With Catherine, you are getting a Realtor® that really cares as much about your future lives in your new home as much as the investment you are making plus she really makes herself available to questions whenever you have them.

Dear Catherine, I hope all is well with you and the boys.

It’s been just over nine months since our closing with you and I wanted to give you an update. We are hosting our first Christmas dinner in our lovely little dining room tomorrow! I know this has been a difficult year for the real estate business (and my newspaper business too!), but I wanted to let you know you really helped make one family’s year a huge and happy success in spite of it all. Thanks again and Merry Christmas! December 2008

Dear Catherine, Thank you so much for helping us sell our home earlier this year.

From early in our first meeting with you, we could see that your professional, thorough and tireless approach to the sale process was going to calm our nerves.   Our first house sale was such a smooth process and much of that was due to your hardworking and friendly approach.  We will absolutley recommend you to everyone!

I enjoyed working with Katherine on selling our family home after Mom passed.

  The house needed some work and Katherine told us what was necessary and what wasn't quite so necessary.  We followed her advise and what do you know the house sold in just a few weeks. Katherine was very professional and I'm happy to recommend her. - Daniel Ellis

Catherine: Sorry that I have taken so long to officially say thank you for all you did for Lisa and me on the purchase of our new home in Naperville.

   You went above and beyond when it came to the home inspection, contract modification, coordinating and attending home improvement estimate site visits, following up with USAA, and generally leading us to the finish line. Installation of hardwood flooring is happening this week, followed by carpeting and painting.  Once we reach the end of summer, please let us know when you will be in Naperville so you can stop by to see the new house. Thanks again! Best wishes, Tom

I recently had Catherine Dugan LaBelle inspect and appraise the value of my property at 517 Bell Avenue: LaGrange, IL 60525.

Though in the end I decided to sell the house to my wife, I was very pleased with Catherine’s thoroughness and professionalism. She obviously knows her business backwards and forwards and spent a few days compiling her report, making sure she left “no real estate stone unturned.” Also, during my meeting with Catherine after the report was written, she told me what I needed to hear about the property as opposed to what I wanted to hear, which gave me the impression that she would be honest and above board at all times had I hired her as my realtor.

 Uma and I loved working with Catherine Dugan LaBelle.

She was very professional in her approach and pleasant to work with. In spite of the demand from us that we find a house within a short time frame, she did not simply “thrust” a home upon us; she took great care in making sure we found a house we liked. She also adjusted her schedule so that we could look at the homes in the market. She also played a great role in the negotiations for a purchase price for the home with the seller (which was being sold “By Owner”). Through the process, we have found a very good friend in Catherine. We would feel extremely happy to recommend her services to our family and friends. We appreciate all that Catherine has done for us.

Uma Viswanathan and Sai Srinivasn

It's been about two months since I moved into my new home, and what a two months it has been.

I just wanted to quickly write to say thank you for all your help in purchasing my home. It has been a very good move for me and my family, and I could not have done it with out you. I am sure you are off helping other clients make their dreams a reality, and I think that is great. You did a wonderful job for me, and I really appreciate it.

Catherine helped us find our first home.

She spent a great deal of time and energy showing us our options; in the end, we bought the home she had first chosen for us, as it was perfect for us.Now, over a decade later, we are still so happy with that choice! We love our neighborhood and love the choice Catherine helped us make. Thank you, Catherine!

Dear Catherine, I should have sent this note sooner but anyway.

..Jim and I want to thank you for selling our condo. In a million years we did not think it would sell so quickly especially when you consider the last time it was on the market got over 400 days! We were caught by surprise. You have made it possible for us to have flexibility in our eventual move out of state which should happen in the Spring. All in a day's work for you, I suppose, but for us a big deal. :) Thank you so much for your expertise and efficiency. Sincerely, Georgetta and Jim Hughes
