d'aprile properties - Cathie Hirsh


A home is more than an address.  It is where you wake up in the morning and where you come home to at night.  It's where you spend time with your loved ones and friends.  It is where memories are made. 

I understand this.  Whether it's a gourmet kitchen, a yard for the kids or a love of front porches, let me be your partner in finding the home of your dreams.  Together we can make your dream home a reality.

5.0 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - clients Kevin & Teri

"We met Cathie by walking into an open house in Park Ridge. She was inviting, courteous and professional. We were immediately drawn to her knowledge of the area as our initial search was in PR. As time progressed and our search modified, Cathie was there with us each step of the way. She proved to be knowledgeable beyond PR as our search focused on condos in Chicago. Cathie was always reachable and proactive. She became our trusted advisor throughout the process. Highly recommend Cathie. She helped realize our dreams."

5.0 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - client Mike V

"Cathie out-delivered every expectation I had. She demonstrated a passion for her profession not seen in many. She provided thoughtful answers to all my questions, from the beginning preparations for sale, and throughout the process of selling it. She anticipated every situation with well crafted contingencies, answered every question or concern with care and detail, and brought passion, brightness and energy to every moment of the process. Cathie acted in full partnership with me every step of the way. From facilitating walkthroughs to over seeing contractor activities, I rapidly developed a trust in Cathie that persevered through every conversation we had. Truly a top performing professional in her field."

5.0 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ HIGHLY RECOMMEND! - client KatO

"Working with Cathie made our selling/buying experience so seamless. She listened to us and understood our timeline for buying and selling and did so much marketing research for us to make us comfortable with what the market was doing in our areas in interest. She understood that we wanted to find a home before we listed our current residence and that we wanted to make sure we had ample overlap in order to have a smooth moving process. Cathie helped us find the most amazing new home and had our condo sold in 5 days! We could not have asked for a better experience and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
