"I had the opportunity to work with Leila on the sale of my home.

She was great to work with and very responsive to all my questions. I would recommend working with her as her knowledge of the Chicago real estate market is strong and she made the process easy."

Dawn

I've been working with Leila for the last 10 years, and I have had great results in getting sold as well as rentals.

Leila is meticulous, professional, experienced, and courteous. 

Prema

Leila is amazing!

 Efficient, effective and caring. In a seller's market it was a great challenge to purchase a condo since it was contingent on selling my old condo. Leila was by my side every step of the way advising me on how to fix up my condo to sell at top price, to fighting for a solid appraisal after I lost my first offer because the appraisal came in at $30,000 less than the asking price, to letting me know which buildings had good reputations when looking for my purchase. She's like a coach to support you through the chaotic process of getting a new home. I highly recommend Leila and Pam, who works with her.

Cheryl

This is my second time working with Leila, but she was excellent yet again!

We looked at 10-15 properties before finding the ultimate purchase and she was very helpful in pointing out potential flaws and nuisances that a homeowner shouldn't have. Excellent professional!

"THANK YOU in particular, Leila - we realize that this wasn't an easy one, and for perhaps a bit less than we all would have hoped, but we truly appreciate your commitment & perseverance to see this through.

Michael and Karen

Leila is a lifesaver.

I had a negative experience living in a Lakeview apartment that I had found on my own (leaks, poor maintenance, bugs, etc.). I was being let out of my lease, so Leila sat down with me and provided outstanding consultation on what my recommended options were for a new living  situation. We determined that a condo building was going to be the right fit for my needs and lifestyle, and she quickly helped me identify a number of available units for me to visit over he next two days. She handled all of the logistical arrangements for me, was consistently responsive throughout our time working together, and most importantly, was very transparent and straightforward with me. She took me out of an extremely stressful situation and partnered with me getting me into a much better arrangement. Leila has been in the business for almost 30 years and knows the ins and outs of it while being extremely adept at navigating the market. I am grateful to have had her help finding my current condo rental, which I love

Zach

From our first meeting, Leila demonstrated an immediate understanding of the type of property that I was looking for.

She is extremely knowledgeable about condos in downtown Chicago as well as about real-estate transactions in the State of Illinois. Leila was always creative, available, flexible, and eager to help. She made house-hunting an enjoyable experience. Leila's associate, Pam was great to work with as well. They are both extremely personable and conveyed a true interest in me as well as my family versus approaching us as merely a business transaction.  Leila and Pam were awesome. I would definitely use them again  and would be more than happy to refer them to others.  They did an Outstanding job!!! Leila and Pam were simply wonderful!! When I know of someone looking to buy or sell property, I will refer them to Leila Keene!

Brian

I'm buying a place in palm beach and you should know that every other realtor is terrible compared to you!

Geoffrey

Leila helped my company find a commercial office lease with specific requirements for build-out.

We looked for more than 6 months until we found the right opportunity. It wasn't easy, but Leila stuck with us through several rounds of negotiations on several properties, even when things fell through. I wanted to give up a few times, but Leila insisted that we keep looking. She is highly dedicated to her clients; she even got in her car and drove around the neighborhoods we were interested in when the listings weren't plentiful! When it came time to negotiate, I loved that Leila stayed involved and went to bat for us. She was a great agent and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to my friends and family.

Lauren

This is the second time that I've worked with Leila to purchase a condo (the first was over 16 years ago).

She is very knowledgeable about the market and was a huge help.
