Morgan and her team were extremely patient and worked hard until I found exactly what I was looking for

 

As a first time home buyer I would have been lost without Morgan. She patiently walked me through all the steps in the home buying process, and even put me in contact with a terrific lawyer and finance person. Morgan and her team were extremely patient and worked hard until I found exactly what I was looking for. It was a wonderful experience, and I’ll definitely be back when it’s time to sell/buy in the future.

Morgan is pleasant and makes a stressful experience as fun as possible

 

As first-time home buyers, we had much to learn about the process surrounding buying a home. Morgan took the time to detail the process for us and was helpful every step of the way. She was flexible with our schedule, organizing multiple showings, and was always accessible to answer our questions. Her knowledge of multiple areas of Chicago was also helpful as we looked in several areas before deciding on where to set roots. She was patient when we looked at everything from high-rises to townhomes in the West Loop to Lincoln Park. Not to mention, she is pleasant and makes a stressful experience as fun as possible. Morgan gave us an honest opinion on the properties we viewed and the home’s true worth in the current market. We have referred several friends her way and will continue to recommend Morgan to our friends and acquaintances without reservations.

Morgan Sage advised me at every step along the way

 

I was very lucky to find Morgan Sage as a realtor. Her knowledge goes so far beyond the norm of what one would expect from most real estate agents. I was greatly surprised and impressed by her intellect and expertise totally concentrated and focused on her profession. She guided me through the entire process of buying the condo that I wanted; informing me of every detail and advised me at every step along the way. I couldn’t figure out how she had so much time to devote only to me– but I’m sure that all her clients got the same devotion that I did.

Morgan knew what I could afford and kept putting in lower bids on the condo until it was mine. Morgan is a great professional; honest, trustworthy and reliable. She also has a great sense of humor and took any negativity I had with great charm and good humor!

It was great that she also has a network of professionals (mortgage people, lawyers, construction workers, etc.) that she could refer me to for help. And I do love the charts I get by email detailing the real estate market in my area. I will definitely be working with Morgan on any future real estate transactions that come up in my life!

We always felt Morgan worked with our best interests in mind

 

We can’t recommend Morgan highly enough. As first time home buyers, Morgan took us through the process from beginning to end with great thoroughness, patience, and most of all a sense of humor. We always felt Morgan worked with our best interests in mind. She was easy to get a hold of and was very flexible to working with our schedule. Her assistants and contacts are also top notch. We know when it comes time to sell our home we will look to work with Morgan again and would recommend her to anyone we know going through the same process.

Morgan patiently helped us find a place we now call home

 

We would highly recommend Morgan for all of your real estate needs. We happened upon Morgan when we were looking to rent a place as we moved from California to Chicago. When it came time to buy, we immediately thought of her again. She is incredibly professional and organized, and she is very knowledgeable about the real estate market.

As first-time home buyers Morgan walked us through the process from beginning to end, and we always felt we could contact her with any questions or concerns. Morgan has a great network of contacts (lawyers, contractors, inspectors, etc.) that she referred us to as we got further into the process, which was really helpful and made the process so much less stressful. What we appreciated most about Morgan was her honestly. She diligently researched properties that we liked and helped us think through the pros and cons of buying based on her careful analysis and real estate knowledge. We never felt pressured to buy; instead, Morgan patiently helped us find a place we now call home. Thanks Morgan!

Morgan made it easy and found me the perfect home

 

As a young single woman, I knew nothing about real estate, taxes, insurance, mortgage, or any of the dozens of important factors that goes into buying a home. Morgan Sage took me under her wing and guided me through every step of my purchase from search to close.

I feel blessed to have randomly picked up Morgan’s mailer. Before we even met, I gave her all my criteria for my new apartment (I had very specific requirements for my new home) as well as a budget I needed to work with. When I actually saw what properties were on the market for my budget, I wasn’t sure I was going to find a place that had all I was looking for. However, Morgan found the perfect place and despite my hesitance, she insisted we go see it. She was right! It ended up being my dream apartment in every way.

Without Morgan’s contacts, I would have never found the right mortgage broker or attorney. As a team, they ended up going almost $200 a month under the budget I had provided! I was so thrilled Morgan put me in the hands of people who are as hard working as she is. With the property being in short sale, there were a lot of hoops to jump through. Morgan made it look easy. She knew I wanted to move in before the New Year so she made a deal which may have taken several months to close happen in a fraction of the time.

Morgan worked so hard for me. Without her as my Realtor, I would not be living in my own home. I can’t wait to work with her again in the future and will defiantly insist her to anyone looking to buy a home.

I am now a happy homeowner. Thanks Morgan!

 

I worked with Morgan twice within this last year of moving to Chicago. First to rent, then to buy, and in both cases she more than delivered! She was there from beginning to end and even followed up after the process was complete, holding my hand all the way. She would point out what to look for and what to look out for, generate area cost comparisons, check the history of a property, and even do all the legwork dealing with other agents. However, more than anything else she did was find me a home, even after exhausting all available options. I am not sure if other REALTOR®s are sharp enough to know to tweak some of the variables (assessments, taxes, even location a block away), but Morgan did and as a result I am now a happy homeowner. Thanks Morgan!

My decision of hiring Morgan was easy

 

I’ve known Morgan professionally for 10+ years so when it came time to buying property, my decision of hiring a realtor was easy. I gave Morgan my condo “nice to have” list and within days we were looking at property that matched my specifications. I eventually narrowed down my search and Morgan made the opening bid based on the market and other property sales in the area. We countered back and forth with the sellers that day but in the end, I was not willing to meet their “rock-bottom” price….Morgan and I decided to walk away from the deal despite the fact I REALLY liked this property. Unbeknownst to me, Morgan wrote the sellers a very tactful, well thought out letter explaining why I was the best buyer for their place. Within 14 hours of sending her letter, Morgan had successfully re-negotiated a price and the contract was signed! Needless to say, without her je ne sais quoi for negotiation I would not be in my fabulous condo – thank you Morgan!

Morgan makes herself very accessible to her clients

 

As first-time home buyers, Morgan helped introduce us to the world of real estate and spent a lot of time explaining the whole process of purchasing a home (not to mention patiently answering the dozens of questions we had). She makes herself very accessible to her clients and didn’t mind that we wanted to be aggressive about house hunting in order to find a home as quickly as possible. We viewed about 20 homes and were able to find a fantastic house in about 2 weeks. I would recommend Morgan to anyone who wants an Agent who is very pleasant to work with, who does her “homework” in order to show her clients homes that meet their needs, while at the same time staying within their price-point. Thanks, Morgan.

Morgan made our purchase a most delightful experience

 

We want to thank you again for your great work in helping us find the perfect place in the city. Your patience, honesty, good humor, and professionalism were just what we needed as we searched for our high-rise heaven. Of course, we knew from the time you “adopted” us that weekend we came to Chicago looking for a rental that you would make sure we got just what we were looking for once we decided to buy. It was obvious from the beginning that your knowledge of the city and market conditions was exceptional and we certainly benefited just as much from your recommendations for a mortgage broker, attorney, and a designer.

Now that the rehab work is almost done, Pam and I can appreciate even more the effort you made that helped us come to the right decision. We value your friendship and truly appreciate both you and your team. It goes without saying that you made this purchase a most delightful experience. Hope to see you soon.

The easiest and most enjoyable transaction

 

During my 37 years as a homeowner, I have bought and sold many residences. I can honestly say that dealing with Morgan made this last purchase the easiest and most enjoyable transaction of them all.

I was an out of state buyer and very eager to find a condo in Chicago. Morgan very graciously did a lot of work for me before we reached the “action” stage of the process, helping me learn about the Chicago market in general and several neighborhoods specifically. With her positive and proactive personality, Morgan searched out information for me that I didn’t even know I needed, and I was amazed and delighted to have a great property under contract less than 3 days after arriving in Chicago.

Morgan is very good at asking the right questions, and more importantly listening to the answers in order to find the perfect home for each individual. In all aspects of the process, she was professional and prepared, as well as friendly and personable and very comfortable to work with. This was truly a stress-free transaction for me.

Working with Morgan was not only a joy, but also very successful for me. I feel very lucky to have had her knowledge and guidance along the way to my wonderful new home in Chicago.

Morgan has assisted me in both renting and buying modes. What impresses me most is her commitment to her clients. It doesn’t matter whether you are buying or renting or how much money the transaction represents; she gives her best service at all times and under all conditions. Her knowledge of listings, combined with her uncanny ability to listen and understand one’s needs, leads her to connect you with the appropriate property quickly. She is the ultimate property matchmaker!

Her prompt communications alleviate much of the stress that often accompanies looking for a new home. Her attention to the smallest of details is unparalleled. No request is too difficult; no question is too trivial; Morgan gets it done! She goes the “extra mile”, is knowledgeable in all facets of her trade and is the best champion for her clients. I truly admire Morgan’s competence as a Realtor. You will be doing yourself the biggest favor if you let her represent you.

I think the best compliment I can give Morgan is she was my Realtor, but now she’s my friend.

Morgan was there to make sure everything went smoothly

 

Morgan Sage has helped us complete our first real estate transaction. As an agent, she was a diligent and very thorough researcher, always providing us with precise and timely information.

She seemed to anticipate our market questions, which was helpful in our evaluation process. One of the most refreshing aspects of our process was that Morgan never pressured us to buy. We felt relaxed and at ease discussing the pros and cons of the many properties we visited. Morgan also walked us through the purchasing process making sure nothing was left to chance. From the offer to closing, Morgan was there to make sure everything went smoothly, and it did. Thanks Morgan!”

I recommend Morgan to everyone I can

 

It’s not every day you work with someone who delivers what they promise to you…and then some! The first day I met with Morgan I signed a contract with her – the confidence she had in her abilities left me no doubt that she was the right person to work with. This was my first time buying in the city, and she was very diligent in questioning me about how I liked to live, what my priorities were, and then matched my needs to the best neighborhoods and condos for me.

While most people are skeptical that realtors are only “out to get the sale price higher so they get a bigger commission”, Morgan guided me to make an offer even below what I was expecting to make which proved she was looking out for my best interests first and foremost. When the negotiations with the sellers got a little heated, she remained extremely pleasant and professional with the selling agent. Throughout the entire process, it was clear how much she valued her integrity and her client relationship with me.

As long as I live in Chicago, I will without question always work with Morgan. I recommend her to everyone I can – I only wish I knew more people!! She is a true professional, but also a great person who made the entire process a lot of fun. Thank you Morgan!

Morgan Sage had answers!

 

As first-time home buyers, we were full of questions….Morgan Sage had answers! Morgan was able to filter through the vast inventory in the Chicago real estate market and was able to hone in on those listings that were a good match for us. She walked us through the entire home-buying process in detail and helped us liaise with the builder’s agent and attorney. She was easy to reach and prompt in responding to our requests and questions. Our closing process had its hiccups, however, Morgan recommended a fabulous lawyer and together they handled a time sensitive situation with professionalism. Morgan was wonderful to work with and we appreciate her efforts very much!

I look forward to working with Morgan again

 

As a first-time home buyer it was important to me to find a real-estate agent with a firm knowledge of the current real estate market coupled with the patience to work slowly through each step with me so that I fully grasped exactly what was occurring in the process. Additionally, with my hectic work travel schedule I needed someone who was able to work with me at opportune times and willing to do a lot of the preparation work for me. Morgan fit all of these categories and more.

In our first meeting Morgan and I discussed specifically what I was looking for in a condo and she made sure to ask the right probing questions to more fully understand exactly what was important to me. After our initial meeting Morgan made sure to provide me with a list of properties that fit my specific needs. She provided me with a few properties which we looked at over the course of two days and as a follow-up Morgan prepared a comparative analysis of the properties we walked through. Being able to look at the properties conveniently in a spreadsheet made it easy for me to see what properties had which features and allowed me to make an educated decision in just two weeks after we met (while I had been looking on my own for two months prior).

Additionally, I utilized Morgan’s network of professional affiliates – mortgage broker, real estate attorney, home inspector, etc.. – and found them all to be extremely professional and easy to work with as well. Not having to concern myself with going out and finding these individuals on my own relieved a lot of pressure during a stressful time.

I look forward to working with Morgan again when I sell/buy additional properties in the future. She is a consummate professional and was a joy to work with. Seeing as how she was so spectacular to work with I am even planning on asking her for remodeling advice so that when I sell my current condo I am able to maximize my profits.

Thanks for the great work Morgan!

She is patient and understanding

 

Morgan and I spent over a year looking for just the right place for me to move to. She was patient and understanding, listening to my long list of wants and needs, and helped me look at each place while taking all my requirements into account. Morgan explained each step of the process in detail and helped me to feel comfortable when I made my final decision. Thank you Morgan!

A complicated process simplified…

 

Morgan was a great asset in navigating the home-buying process. As a first time buyer I had a lot of questions, and she had all the answers – even to questions I did not even know to ask! She really felt like a partner throughout. Morgan was able to see what I was looking for and offer the best matches. I doubt I would have been able to find as great a place without her vast knowledge, experience and friendly demeanor. I look forward to working with Morgan again, and will absolutely recommend her to friends.

Always the consummate professional…

 

As a first-time home buyer, it was imperative to find an agent that had a strong grasp of the current real estate landscape. Morgan made sure to take me through each step in the home buying process without missing a detail.

Morgan was meticulous in her search for a property that would provide the best fit for me. After carefully listening to what I wanted in a condo, Morgan made sure to show me only the properties that exactly fit the parameters I had set forth.

Always the consumate professional, Morgan met with me at times that were most convinent for me and made sure to provide her undivided attention during our meetings.

Morgan’s instincts, strong work ethic and knowledge of the metropolitan area make her a great choice for those looking to buy or sell in Chicago. Not only am I very happy with the home I chose, but I am glad that I selected Morgan Sage to represent me in my search for a property.

I will use Morgan Sage as my Realtor!

 

My name is Dave Cremer, I have moved six times in the last ten years, and I can say without question that Morgan Sage has been the best Realtor I have ever worked with. She was very responsive to me, accommodated my schedule as I was transferring to Chicago from out of state, and she listened to my needs and worked with me to find a great loft in the city.

Morgan went above and beyond the call of duty as she drove to the condo to physically walk through the parking garage and put much thought into what parking space would be most convenient for me to pull in and out of.

Morgan worked for me, and listened to what I was looking for, then applied her knowledge of the Chicago market to fit all my requests for the right loft. She also returns phone calls promptly and was a lot of fun to work with.

When I move again, I will use Morgan Sage as my Realtor!
