"Since we have met Fran she has been awsome to work with. She goes out of her way to satisfy her clientele. She pulls comps on houses in the area around the house that your trying to sell to be able to determine an amount to sell your house for. If there is a certain price you would like to get for your home she always makes us laugh by telling us she'll try anything for three weeks. #alwaysuseher #trustworthy #awsome #friendly"

"We worked with Fran to sell our house and find our new dream home. She was fantastic through the whole process! She was insightful, creative, patient, and completely accurate. She helped us get the most money for our house while successfully negotiating the purchase of the new house. Navigating both transactions was particularly stressful because we needed to close everything on the same date, but Fran helped it all fall into place. She was a true partner that we knew we could count on every step of the way! Highly recommend her services!"

"Buying a first house can be a very intimidating experience. There are so many different things that you might not know, and all you honestly want is someone who will be patient and help you through the many steps. Fran went absolutely above and beyond for my husband and I. I am a very organized person, but when it came to the house buying process I had no clue where to even begin. Fran helped me every step of the way and put any fears and uncertainties to rest. She was very professional, kind, organized, patient, and made any insecurity we had disappear. Not only did she help us to get the home of our dreams, she also gained the trust of myself, my husband and my whole family. We had been dealing with another realtor before we had Fran and it was an absolute nightmare. Fran listened to all of our requirements and requests and worked very hard to get us what we were looking for. Fran has a personality that instantly brings you comfort and the assurance you need when looking for a first home. Fran shows the same excitement for you when looking for a home and stops at nothing to try and meet your every request. If there is any problems with anything, she makes it a point to work her hardest to solve every single one of them. I have, and would recommend Fran to anyone I know who is looking to find a home. My family has had the same relator for over the past 25 years and after they met Fran they have decided when they make their next move they will be going through her. She has made a huge impact on not only my life but everyone else who was involved with our housing process and I am so grateful every day we found her. She has not only become a part of our lives in a professional sense but she has also become a friend to us. If you like someone to be organized, personable, confident, and professional then I would absolutely suggest you make the right decision and hire her. She is an amazing person and will be involved in any of our housing needs for many years to come."
"I have used many realestate agents in the past, but Fran is without a doubt A top notch agent."

"Fran helped me find my new home, she was very patient with me as I was rarher picky with certain things, and then when I finally found a place that I wanted I had to go into a bidding war with 4 other offers! Fran was able to exert her negotiation skills and win me my first home! She was very insightful throughout the process and gave me some great tips for new home owners. I am forever grateful and I would definitely go to her again and refer her to my future home owner friends."

"Fran was quite a help during the process of purchasing an empty lot on Long Lake, Illinois. It took almost two years. She was a constant inspiration the whole time. We are looking forward to working with her in the future!"

"Fran is an amazing realtor! She helped us to sell my parents' vacation home in Illinois and navigated the whole process with me long-distance. Because my mom was unable to be involved due to health issues and I live in California, we had to work closely with each other from a great distance. Fran made the whole process so easy, was an excellent communicator, extremely trustworthy and ethical, very knowledgable, and demonstrated great sensitivity with my mom. She involved herself personally in helping to get the property ready, oversaw all of the needed inspections and repairs, and provided valuable and needed referrals. She priced the house well and in less than a week, we received three offers and accepted a cash offer well over our asking price. I highly recommend Fran! Our experience with her could not have been better!"

"As recent retirees who had lived in our last home for 20+ years, selling our home and finding a new home that would better meet our needs and wants for this life stage was a daunting task. Fran helped guide us through every step of the process, from updating our 110 year old home to maximize buyer appeal in the most cost effective way, to helping us find and purchase the home that would best meet our needs now and into the future. She paid attention to every detail, providing us with a list of things that needed to be done in order to best market the house and helping us get ready to go active on a timely basis, knowing that potential buyers would most likely be a family with school age children who would want to have their children enrolled in Grayslake's excellent schools at the beginning of the school year. We were not quite done with some of the painting when it was time for the photographer to shoot the home, but she worked with him to ensure the photos were top notch and the flyers would be ready for the target "go active" date. When we saw the photos, we were astounded at how beautiful our home looked. The listing was active and the yard sign was in place on Friday morning and by noon that same day, our first viewing was scheduled for the next day, Saturday. The offer came in on Sunday and Fran handled the negotiations like the pro she is. She hustled to get all the pieces in order quickly to enable us to proceed with purchasing our new home, sequencing closings so that we were able to close on both houses and move on the same day. Fran worked tirelessly to make this transition as smooth as possible. She was sensitive to our desire to not waste money on needless renovations while spelling out the items that really needed to be updated. We highly recommend Fran Glatfelter for all your real estate needs. You will not find anyone who is more dedicated to helping you fulfill your housing needs. Thank you Fran!"
