Tell Us Your Story

Catherine was great, went over and above to help me find a place in a market with minimal resources.

She definitely knows the area and gave me some good tips for living in the area and places to go visit as well. I appreciate all of her help! I will not be buying properties in the city but would recommend Catherine if someone asked for assistance.

Jennifer Forster

Catherine was absolutely wonderful in helping purchase our first home.

She demonstrated professionalism and attended to all our questions, needs, and concerns. We recommend Catherine to anyone looking for their perfect home. Thanks Catherine!

Jamie Westergaard

Catherine was so fantastic!

I knew right off when speaking with her initially that she was the right agent for us. Her experience, knowledge of the area and sense of humour all work together and make her the best. Searching for a home in a week for relocation is long days, she kept our spirits up and really listened to what we needed and what we wanted and was able to accommodate it all. We had an interesting challenge in that my husband is 6'9" so many of the basements of the homes she showed us he was not able to stand up. . .she kept a great sense of humour about it and kept us motivated to find the right house. By the end of the week we felt we had a new friend in Catherine.

Catherine was wonderful.

We came running into town, and she helped us find a house without the drop of a hat. House shopping with kids is never easy, but Catherine was very patient with my boys and understood they had limits. We are very grateful we got matched up with Catherine, and can't wait to show pictures of when we are done!

Catherine Simon-Vobornik has excellent attention to detail and is very easy to work with.

Greg Kostopoulos

Catherine Simon-Vobornik of Baird & Warner really went out of her way to help me find my new home.

She demonstrated remarkable skill and patience as together we worked to learn what I wanted in a new home. Catherine loves a good price and endeared in me her philosophy of buying the right property; a property that was appealing to me and fit my lifestyle, with good value now, and with good future resale value. With similar mind set, we visited an extensive number of properties and housing options throughout the region, and as I lived the roller coaster of emotion involved in picking a new place, Catherine was incredibly responsive and kind, always with a friendly smile, and with several more properties to look at. When I found "The" place, Catherine worked quickly and tirelessly to get an offer to the seller, negotiate a great price, and close the deal. After closing, Catherine remained by my side as we endured inspections, further negotiations, and even helped to provide excellent mortgage and real estate attorney. It is obvious that Catherine loves her job - there is no other way I can imagine should could sustain the energy and enthusiasm she puts into being an absolutely fantastic Real Estate Agent.

Deirdre Buckingham

Catherine Simon-Vobornik is an asset to your company!

She did such a great job for us, going above and beyond the call of duty and we thoroughly enjoyed working with her. Catherine is incredibly patient; I had specific criteria for the house I wanted, and we looked for over 3 years! She was enthusiastic and earnestly searched for houses for us to look at that fit my spec's every few weeks. Any time I had a question and sent a text or left a message, Catherine responded very quickly. Once we found THE ONE, she held my hand and with her depth of knowledge and experience, guided us through the purchase process. My emotions would get the best of me from time to time, and she was just great. Catherine is a delightful person to work with and I have already recommended her to several friends who are looking to move.

Jennifer M Coghlan

Catherine was wonderful!

I would definitely recommend her to anyone. We first made contact with her thinking that it may take a long time to find a good place for us, and the whole process only took a couple of weeks! We ended up getting into one of the properties we walked through the first day we met Catherine. She worked really hard for us to not only negotiate the price but also to make sure that things were in order for us to move it.

Catherine SImon-Vobornik was our real estate broker for over two years, demonstrating patience and perseverance when we often changed our minds for the type of home we wanted to buy and the area where we wanted to live.

Catherine did a great job for us!

We could not have asked for a better, more professional realtor! She found a qualified renter/buyer for us that rented our house for 1 year, and then purchased our house. She was very knowledgeable about the area, the market, and the entire selling process. We would highly recommend her to our friends and family, or anyone looking to sell their house.

Catherine made this our easiest real estate transaction yet.

Her efforts earned us a better price than we anticipated and she shielded us from several stressful situations that often accompany negotiations. Thank you, thank you!

Our agent went above and beyond to help us, especially since we were doing most of the sale of our home out of state.

She made daily trips to the property to monitor it for us and kept us abreast of anything we needed to know, she was excellent. We won't be using our agent again only because we've moved 400 miles away, otherwise we would gladly use her again.

Chris & Raelyn L

Catherine was very knowledgable and very responsive.

We were operating under a tight timeline and Catherine was able to work within our budget and help us find a home in a very short time. We are very appreciative of her efforts and the way she managed the process. Uche

Catherine was amazing!

She was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Not only did she get my condo sold in three weeks, she went above and beyond by helping me get all the repairs taken care of before the closing when I had a family emergency. She's been a part of the Oak Park community for a long time and really knows the area. There is no part of the process that did not go smoothly with her help! I highly recommend her!

I was out of state during the whole process, tending to family health issues.

Catherine stepped in to handle things where I couldn't. She was always available. She believed in the value of my property and rigorously advocated for it. I was very happy to have partnered with her and would do it again.

We would not have been able to sell our house in Berwyn, from our new home in California, if it weren't for Catherine.

She was able to help us get everything fixed and ready, and all under Berwyn Village requirements. She was so helpful throughout every step. We so so so highly recommend Catherine to anyone who is looking for a realtor.

Catherine was awesome at handling all our concerns!

She drove us around and managed last minute showing changes, she worked late on Friday night when we put our offer on the home, she addressed all concerns immediately and whenever i called, she was quick to make herself available. I would definitely recommend her to another relocation client or to anybody else!

Sharon Bynum

Catherine was incredibly organized and a delight to work with.

She has decades of experience, and as first time sellers, she walked us through each step of the process. Within two weeks of meeting her, she had helped us find a wonderful painter, professional photographer, and had our condo on the market. Her background in design was helpful in staging our condo, and she met with us multiple times to personally oversee the process. She was also very responsive in communicating with us, and she was a tough negotiator when we received multiple offers within the first two weeks of listing. We appreciated the marketing strategies employed by Baird and Warner, and both Baird and Warner and Catherine were a delight to work with. Would highly recommend Catherine, especially in the Oak Park area. Such a pleasure to work with her!
