Local Expertise

Kathy Repsis has been a top Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage realtor serving the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois for over 25 years. Her specific areas of expertise lie in the DuPage County area as well as the O’Hare Airport regions working with sellers as well as buyers.

Kathy is not only a decorated agent of Coldwell Banker, a company that through Realogy, landed on the 2014 list of “World’s Most Ethical Companies”, but is someone that simply put, knows how to sell homes in the 21st century. She uses a dynamic approach, originally built around her extensive local network. This approach is strengthened by adding premium advertising through Social Media, The MLS, websites such as Zillow.com, Realty.com, KathyRepsis.com, and beautifully printed brochures and fliers with professional photographs, all taken care of by Kathy and her team.

Your home must be on Facebook, Twitter, and Online Sites - this is an absolute must! Also, instead of the traditional 1 or 2 pictures of your home...........Kathy has 10 pictures of your home put on the MLS. Your home must be maximized to the most qualified buyer! BUYERS WANT TO SEE PICTURES. Without many pictures your home may not show as well as it should. You will learn that not all realtors are alike, and not all homes are alike.  

Business Philosophy

The cornerstone of Kathy’s real estate business is customer service. For over 25 years she has discovered that in helping both her buyers and sellers, service is by far the most important aspect of the process to them. Whether you are a first time buyer or looking to list your 10th house, Kathy has worked with someone in your situation.

Kathy has also figured out that everyone is a little bit different and that the way she serves her customers will change for each individual. One way she does this is through communicating with her clients. Whether you would like the primary tool of communication to be email, phone call, or text message, Kathy and her team are ready to make you happy.

Kathy gives excellent guidance to help you through the maze of homes on the market, how to write the best contract, and referrals to high caliber home inspectors, loan officers, attorneys, movers and more. Do you know the difference between a home on the market that is a short sale vs. a traditional home? Ask Kathy for her premier buyer's packet - and a free one hour buyer's consultation.

Personal Background and Community Involvement

Kathy was originally from Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood and moved to Northlake 40 years ago. her two children, one a Chicago police office and the other a legal secretary, are both involved with her in the community. While they take part in many activities, including fundraisers put on by Coldwell Banker, their favorite is definitely helping with holiday parades. Kathy is also a member of the City of Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce.

I wanted to write to you regarding our experience selling our home with Kathy Repsis.  She was extremely personable and very detailed.  She made sure all avenues of marketing our house were used and didn't put it on the market till it was the most lucrative one available.  We really appreciate that level of thoroughness.  We received a firm offer within 10 days and closed on 02/25/2016.  We have moved to AZ and the whole process could not have been better.  We are so blessed that we met Kathy when she responded to my online inquiry as she gave us a sense of confidence in her abilities to sell our house quickly that made us choose her right away.
