There are many things that can be said about the high quality of service The Hager Group provides to home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of their clients themselves.
“Mary was recommended to me as a wonderful realtor and I would certainly continue with my recommendation of her as well. She is both extremely professional and personable. She knows what it takes to sell a home. She provided me advice on what I could do to prepare my home to sell. She staged my home beautifully. A professional photographer took pictures that captured the best aspects of my home. She did an excellent job getting to know the market and how to price my home to sell. She marketed my home – door hangers in the neighborhood, postcards in the mail, open house where everyone felt welcomed. She even hired some neighborhood girls to bake cupcakes! Mary followed up with prospective buyers to get their feedback on what they thought of my home. We were able to sell my home at the best price possible. Mary helped me find my next home. She knew what I wanted – provided me information on available homes and found the perfect one for me. Even though she had several clients, when she took me from home to home, she never rushed, always had time. Her communication skills are excellent. She isn’t a realtor who just lists your home and walks away. We communicated often as to the status in both the selling of my home and the buying of my new home. She guided me through the process when it was time to close and helped me remain calm in what is often a stressful time. “

Thank you so much for all of your hard work in selling our home and on the purchase of the new home. The last week was painful for all of us and you fought to ensure that the sales did not fall through on both sides. We would not have been able to move into our new home without your hard work and dedication. . . We would be homeless if you hadn't been our realtor. Even our lawyer (30 yrs in the business) was impressed! I will continue to recommend you to my friends . . .Thanks again! "

"Mary Hager is truly an asset ,. . .Her knowledge of the housing market area, contractual knowledge and all aspects of the "selling" are phenomenal. She is like the "energizer bunny" - always on the go and thinking of her client. She always goes the extra mile. Her warmth and personality are reflected in her true concern for her client. She is always one-up on every issue and situation and leaves no stone unturned. Her attention to detail is to be commended. I am glad I changed brokers and found Mary - - I not only would recommend her, but endorse her for "Agent of the Year" if there is such an award. Thank you Mary for all your effort on my behalf. "

“Mary was wonderful to work with. She goes above & beyond. She gives 200% from the time you list your home until the day of closing. Mary's communication is EXCELLENT. Her follow through & follow up are top notch. If we still lived in Illinois, we would use Mary for all of our real estate transactions going forward. We have and will continue to recommend her to everyone we know in IL as she is wonderful at her job. We want to thank Mary for taking such great care of us during the sale of our home! It was a pleasure working with her. Thanks so much!”

“We chose Mary from a few agents that our relocation company recommended. We were exceptionally satisfied with the way she understood and addressed our needs and requests and with the assistance she provided in negotiating the terms of our transaction. We were also exceptionally satisfied with her follow-up and attention to details from contract through closing. "Good person and good job!"

Krista and I wanted to thank you for all your hard work and due diligence in selling our home. This effort not only resulted in a quicker than average sale, but we were also pleasantly surprised when it sold for more than what we were asking. We have sold four homes over the last 10 years and can honestly say that when compared to others in your profession, you raise the bar as it relates to professionalism, attention to detail, work ethic and market knowledge. All of these characteristics, which you successfully demonstrated time after time, made our selling experience an enjoyable and profitable one. Keep up the good work.”
- Mike & Krista T.
“The reason we selected Mary was she was the first agent who contacted us (through relocation) and gave us a very good presentation. She is a very nice and hard-working lady. She loves her job very much. My wife and I are very impressed by her performance. We already recommended her to our friends.”

“Mary suggested all the little things e.g. marketing plans and home staging that made the house look very different and more sales worthy. Her marketing analytics positioned the house appropriately in the right sales band.”

“Dear Mary and Lee:
I just wanted to write to you know how absolutely amazed at how much you all did to help me sell my Barrington home. I also am totally shocked and overjoyed about the particulars of the sale. I had expected the house to be on the market for months since it was not the peak spring selling season and it was not a seller’s market when it was sold. We executed a sales contract in the first couple of days the house was on the market. I am convinced that your ideas and execution surrounding the staging and marketing the house was the key in closing the deal so quickly and for so much money. If any of my friends or family in the Chicago area ever need to sell a home, you will be highly recommended by me.”
- Terry L.

“Mary went above and beyond our expectations. Her negotiation skills allowed us to save more than $7,000 when finalizing the offer! She is personable, a great listener and so professional. We were exceptionally satisfied with the way she understood and addressed our needs and requests and with the assistance she provided in negotiating the terms of our transaction.

We are sorry this letter is so late getting to you . . . Our granddaughter and her husband bought your listing in Barrington. Being in real estate and having sold many homes, we have never seen happier buyers. Even the children are happy in their new schools. Every morning when Tammy leaves for work, she blows a kiss to the house. Thanks again.”
- Ed & Marlene F.
Right from the beginning when I first met you, I knew that I had found a dear friend that would help me find my dream home as I begin my new life here in Illinois! You’ve been there for me every step of the way and far exceeded what others would or could do! Your continual acts of service and kindness have overwhelmed me . . . But, most important to me, is our friendship and how very special of a person you are. You live your faith and it is magnified by your actions. What greater gift to God than to walk in the steps of the Savior!
- Jane T.
Thank you so much for all of your help throughout the process of buying our first home. You have been so helpful – from looking at so many homes at all hours and days of the week . . . We are so grateful for your advice, patience and the way you worked together with everyone else involved. We’d never have gotten through it without you! Thanks again.”

- Nancy & Rick B
“Mary Hager is very detailed orientated! She presented us a book of possible homes the day after speaking with her. We were with another agent from a different firm and she sold us with her presentation. Mary is very detail orientated and always asked us questions on what we wanted in a house. She was always working hard for us even during the slow times of our search. During our closing period she was always keeping us updated on what was going on, and letter us know what we needed to do. I would recommend her in a heartbeat! After almost 4 months of searching with Mary we found the right house for us to start our lives together! Thank you Mary Hager!
