What People Are Saying

Whether you are looking for an apartment, loft, condo, or house in the Windy City, we have the resources and client service experience to make this significant purchase both simple and satisfying—as our many contented clients will tell you!

I can not say enough good things about Nicole. She is very knowledgeable and made my search for a house easy and fun. She made herself available 24 hours of the day, 7 days of the week even when she had to go out of town! If that's not dedication, I don't know what is. She educated me throughout the whole process. She taught me what to look for and avoid when looking at houses that a common joe like myself would miss. She provided recommendations for inspectors, contractors, HVAC cleaners, electricians, plumbers, and the list goes on. I know if I ever run into problems with my new house, she can provide a contact. You would without a doubt want someone like that in your corner! That alone gives me confidence with being a first time home owner. I don't think she does this for the money but for the passion and love she has for her business. She often times stirred me away from houses I was interested in that she knew would turn into a money pit. I definitely appreciate her for that. It really shows that she has her clients best interest at heart. I would recommend her to my friends and family. If I was to buy another house or sell mine, I would without a doubt only use Nicole. She is a gem!

Nicole has all the training an certifications that most realtors think they can somehow get by without and still deliver top tier service. This gave me confidence in her not missing any detail or angle in the marketing and selling of my condominium. She was very supportive during the process, and very frank about the realities of the market we find ourselves in and the risks and opportunities going forward. Our situation was a a difficult one because the condominium association was being sued thereby greatly limiting the buyers to cash only. Despite this she found a buyer within days who came through with a fair price and a very short closing time. We highly recommend Nicole.

We were selling our Chicago home from out of state. Thanks to Nicole, whole process felt much less overwhelming and, in retrospect, went fairly smoothly. She handled matters very professionally and we always had a sense that she knows what she is talking about and that she knows and LOVES her job inside out. At the same time she was very personable and down to earth, so we were comfortable having honest discussions upfront on all issues, from market prices to what repairs or concessions we were willing to make. She met with us numerous times during house prep and always provided valuable advice and reasonable, practical suggestions to improve house appeal. Her "little black book" with contacts for plumbers, cleaning ladies, attorneys, staging people, etc was a life saver, as we had been living outside of IL for over a decade. We left Chicago with the sense of total comfort leaving our house in her hands and care until closing day. We were were happy with the service Nicole provided us, particularly that we sold the house in 6 days for nearly 100% of asking price.

Everything with Nicole was quick, efficient, professional and personal. We were really happy to have found her and will be recommending her to anyone we know is looking to buy or sell.
Nicole has a depth and breadth of real estate knowledge that is impressive. She was thoughtful in her approach with us in listing and selling our home. She was in constant communication with us throughout the process including scheduling showings, providing feedback afterward, and recommendations. She accurately gauged our home's marketability and priced it on the mark. Our advice to anyone working with Nicole - follow each suggestion to the letter. Her recommendations on preparing the home for showings was what made the difference. We would work with her again in an instant. Truly outstanding.

Nicole was so wonderful to work with. She was with us every step of the way, from when we thought about selling months before we listed to the very last details of closing. She listened to what we wanted and gave well-thought-out feedback that helped us sell our house in just 3 days! Even during our down time, when weren't ready to sell, she kept us apprised of real estate trends and checked in with us. When she would meet with us, we never felt rushed and she talked us through everything. The only bad part of selling our home is not getting to work with Nicole more! :)

Nicole was very professional but personable at the same time. We came to her after not so good of an experience with the previous agent he used (not from Dreamtown) Nicole exceeded our expectations!! Melanie

Thank you for all that you've done! I've been keeping up with my sister even though or family was out of the country for the last month ( just got back Friday). Reading all the emails flying back and forth was aggravating because I couldn't help in a timely manner. Your help, wisdom, experience, and calm presence of mind was much appreciated! Thank you also for all you've done for my sister. She is so appreciative to have her house sold! I hope that you'll have time for a summer vacation with your children!

Nicole and her very competent team made buying my first home easy and smooth. She never pressured me to buy (I waited two years), and when I saw something I liked, she immediately responded, and provided all the information I needed to make a decision. When I decided to buy, she put me in contact with all the professionals necessary to buy a home. Everyone worked so well together, and everyone answered their phone calls immediately so there was no trouble in the process; a process I've heard that can be difficult. I give her 5 stars because that is the kind of service I received.

Nicole said she would make everything as easy as possible for me to sell my home and she did. I have seen houses in my area on the market for months. I had a contract in less than a week for more than my asking price.

I was new to the home selling game, and Nicole was able to walk me through each step with care and understanding. She answered all of my questions, and made the process of selling our house as easy as it could be.

I can't recommend Nicole enough. She recently sold our Chicago condo while we are living out-of-state. We put the unit on the market on a Friday, and by Saturday morning, it was under contract for asking price! I give all the credit to Nicole for her recommendations for pricing in a neighborhood with few comps. Nicole handled absolutely everything for us, including working with our contractor to finalize renovations, getting the condo market-ready and navigating the closing process. To top it off, she's a lovely person to work with! Very highly recommended.

Nicole stayed with us throughout the entire process, offered solutions, made the whole experience great.

Nicole took care of everything for me, eliminating a lot of stress and anxiety. Most importantly she put up with my specific needs and stubborn demands. I've worked with other touted realtors where the listing expired without them bringng in a single lead. Nicole brought in a buyer before the listing even went up.

Dream Town is fortunate to have you as one of their representative. Your thoughtfulness brought back memories of the helpful ways in which you used to sell our home. At times, I enjoy looking at the promotional pictures of our home and I hope that the new family is building their own wonderful memories. Brad and I appreciate the luxurious Taylor Street soap and Lori and I will so enjoy. We wish you a blessed Thanksgiving and a New Year of prosperity.

Nicole was so patient and understanding when it came to our needs. She was able to find us a home that fit both my fiancé and my personality. We couldn't have asked for a better agent.

Nicole worked miracles when selling our house and finding a new one for us! I cannot rate her highly enough and have been telling all my friends about her, Nicole is the best!!

All I can say is that my husband and I were browsing the market for a few months. We were surfing online, on our own, because we really had no interest in working with a realtor so if we saw something online that we felt was walk through worthy, we'd call the listing agent and schedule a walk through... until Nicole Hajdu. Nicole knew so much about the house she was selling so it was obvious that she really did her homework on her listing (Note to SELLERS, there's nothing more annoying than a realtor who seems uninspired or ready to leave). Also, her enthusiasm felt genuine because it seemed as if she really enjoyed her job (which I now know she does!). After her first walk through, my husband and I stuck with her to look at other homes. She would come to every appointment with a folder full of print outs, MLS listings with pictures and any information she could get her hands on. NOT pushy so we never felt any pressure. Even though we initially called to see her listing, she didn't even try to push it when we expressed that we were not interested. She was consistent with calling back pretty quickly and she REALLY made the whole process of buying a house stress free. After about a month with her, we found our home. You know, maybe we just got spoiled because I think back to the horror stories I've heard about buying a house wah wah wah and personally, I think it was a piece of cake! I seriously couldn't be more happy that we stumbled across her. Erik and Christine Matsunaga

I've worked with Nicole on several occasions. Her energy and creativity brought great value to our projects, and I can highly recommend her. Rob Mancuso

Many agents have been reaching out to me offering to help me find my "perfect" place and then sending me an MLS of hundreds of places I would never think twice about. Many of your "hand picked" places are exactly what I'm looking for. I'd like to work exclusively with you. Let me know when you are available to see some of these ones in the south loop. Thanks again." Brandon Piotrowski

The Bottom Line - we LOVE our home. Our happiness derives in no small part from the tireless work of our real estate agent, Nicole Hajdu. As first time homebuyers, my wife and I came with a difficult, disparate list of desires. Nicole worked with us to find and show us homes to meet this set of criteria; number of bedrooms, number of baths, close to transit, style, etc. She also demonstrated understanding as we adjusted our criteria to refine her search. Most importantly, our current home demonstrates her investment in our search and ultimate happiness. Our future home was re-listed on a Wednesday, Nicole recognizing how quickly it would sell, scheduled a showing the following day. By the weekend, she had completed research to ensure that offer was the best of the three competitive bids submitted. We had a tentative agreement to purchase the home by that weekend. With an agent not as dedicated and involved, we would not be in our home today. Thank you - thank you!" Dominick and Monica Argumedo

Nicole has a lot of knowledge about the real estate market. She is also personable and gets to know her clients. I was a first time home buyer and she was patient with my persistence to look at tons of condos and answered all of my questions along the way. When I settled on bidding on a foreclosure, Nicole told me everything I needed to know about the process. She was persistent and asked the association, bank's agent, etc. all of my many questions during the process and made me feel at ease that things were going to work out in my favor, and they did. She also has a good rapport with many inspectors and lawyers and I am glad I took her recommendations! I highly recommend Nicole as a Real Estate Broker. Katrina Binaku

Nicole has helped several of my clients (I am a mortgage broker) in finding homes. I hate to use cliches like 'going the extra mile' or 'thinking outside the box' but..Nicole does just that. She goes so way above and beyond what a typical realtor will do. She's smart, knows the market better than most anyone, and she listens! This combination of qualities makes her one of the best realtors I have ever worked with in the 16 years I've been in this field. Bottom line: buying or selling a home is stressful. You'll be doing yourself a HUGE favor in hiring Nicole who is one of the top agents not only at Baird & Warner but also in and around Chicagoland. Barry Schwartz

I consider selling your house one of the most important life decisions people make. A lot of factors play into a successful sale; market, neighborhood and agent just to name a few. No one wants to walk away from a sale with a sour taste of having had an agent that poorly represented you, didn't get the best price or just rushed through things to close the deal. We interviewed several real-estate agents before having met Nicole. She was flexible, professional, attentive to detail and willing to advise\consult with us and actually made the sale process enjoyable. She even provided us with references for contractors to remediate small inspection findings. I felt like she made the process smoother and less hectic than it could have been. We even reused her contractor to remodel our master bath and bedroom in our new house, a fabulous recommendation. Nicole was a star real-estate agent and a person I would recommend without hesitation. Dan Sanchez

Nicole was great. We compared her with 3 other realtors before we made our decision. She was by far more attentive and together than the others. I developed a motto in dealing with Nicole - "In Nicole we trust!" Ephrem Rabin

We would give Nicole a 10 if we had that option! From beginning to end...I don't know where she gets the energy, but no matter what we ask of her she came through. She always had an answer and she did her homework. I've never had an agent go so out of her way to help, This year it was purchasing a new home. Next year we will be selling another property that we have every intention of contacting Nicole for. Gwyn & Charley Mack
