"Carol was a great help in terms of strategic suggestions for what we needed to do to get the house ready for market, and provided excellent referrals for tradespeople who were able to take care of improvements in a timely and reliable manner. Her suggestion to use a staging service helped to present the house in the best way in a competitive market. From start to finish, Carol was attentive to the details needed to provide a high level of service in the sale of our house."

"Carol Hunt is a remarkable agent who provided us outstanding service when we sold our Winnetka home. Carol’s seasoned, professional advice incorporated simple decorating and staging changes, marketing that created demand and financial, deal-making acumen. In the most difficult market conditions imaginable our house sold in 9 days for 95% of asking price. We would recommend Carol to anyone selling on the North Shore."

"Carol helped us sell the Kenilworth home she sold us in 1986. But this was not just any sale, it was at the bottom of the market in 2011 when nothing was moving. It took every bit of her expertise, diligence, and persistence to close on a very complicated sale. If you look up Real Estate Pro in the dictionary, you’ll see Carol’s picture. She’s really that good."

"What an easy review to write! Is there a real estate agent Hall of Fame? Carol Hunt should be enshrined in it.  

My wife and I had a very difficult situation when we decided to sell our home. There were some tough village regulations that affected the sale, and it made it difficult to find potential buyers. Carol persevered with great ideas and came up with not just a way out, but multiple options for us. This is only possible because of Carol's knowledge of the industry and the pecularities and nuances of local communities, along with her tenacity in driving through to the resolution of problems and finding suitable buyers. Plus, she was a delight and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!"

"On the North Shore, Carol IS Real Estate -- and she's tops! If she were an Olympian, she would win the Gold! Our house was, by NO means, an easy sell or expensive, but she treated us and it as if she were selling the former W. Clement Stone mansion on Sheridan Road in Winnetka! She is a true professional!"
