Hellinga & Hasselbring

Client Testimonials

Mona Hellinga is a consummate professional. She knows her market and how to get a deal done. She is fair but firm. A true pleasure to work with!

Flor was very helpful and pleasant to work with during the home-buying process. Transferring from another state, I needed local knowledge of the neighborhoods and geography, laws, codes, taxes, etc. Flor met or exceeded my expectations on all fronts.
Kevin C.  

She is great - extremely knowledgeable and personable. Selling your home is hard but working with Mona and BHHS made it easier. And we got a great price.
John S. 

Flor is perfection. She thinks outside the box and finds solutions for difficult situations. She is willing to understand the buyer's needs and propose solutions accordingly. In a period of only eight months, Flor assisted us in a cross-country move, helped get us into our desired rental, located our dream home for purchase, and found a new renter to take over our rental so that we could get out of it early to close on our new home. All difficult tasks she handled with ease and care. Being from out-of-state, she helped us understand the home-buying process in IL and walked us through each step. She was available day and night to answer our questions. A true no-pressure, dedicated professional that puts your needs first. In my mind, there is no better broker to help you with your home buying or selling needs. She will always be my first call for my real estate needs.

It is the people like Mona Hellinga that make the BHHS company look good, the same way doctors make a hospital look good! I would have gone with Mona irrespectively of who she worked for. The marketing material of BHHS was exceptional.
Pankaj V. 

I had dealt with Mona previously, and I had complete trust that she would do an excellent job, and she did. Mona was available whenever I needed to talk to her. She returned my phone calls right away. My experience with Mona and BHHS for 3435 Old Mill Road was excellent. The house was under contract in about a week. Mona had to cancel the open house and some of the prescheduled showings. The whole staff works like a team. It was quick and efficient. I am very happy with their work.

Flor is an extremely knowledgeable real estate agent, and she is a sincere pleasure to interface with. She is not only detail-oriented but also decision-oriented and passionate about client service.

Mona is a true professional in every way. They don't come any better. If you want to sell or buy a home, give the listing to someone who knows the market and moves quickly to serve the customer -- Mona is that person.

Flor was a pleasure to work with on our recent home purchase. She was very professional and patient during the process. Additionally, her knowledge of the local market gave us a strong advantage during the bidding and negotiating process. I look forward to working with Flor in the future, and I highly recommend her services to all.

Mona Hellinga was a pleasure to deal with. She was professional, knowledgeable, understanding, and respectful. She made recommendations but respected the decisions we made. Her attention to detail was impressive. She communicated with us often and always responded to our questions in a timely manner. When not available, she had an associate who covered for her and knew the particulars of our situation. We highly recommend Mona Hellinga.
Joe and Loretta L.

My wife and I were really satisfied with Flor as our real estate agent. As first-time homebuyers, we were lost during the process, and it was nice to have Flor guide us through everything, making the process a lot easier. I would recommend Flor to anyone!
Jose R. 

Flor is a true professional and someone you can count on when you need it. Her great work ethic and tireless pursuit of clients' needs result in great customer service. I will recommend Flor to anyone looking for a realtor without hesitation. In this tough market, you need a real professional who can get you results, and Flor delivers.
Bill B.

I cannot imagine having a better or more experienced broker than Mona Hellinga. Mona was knowledgeable both in the local market and in the selling process. In general, informative and actively engaged. Her depth of experience was evident throughout the entire process. Mona made a point of staying in constant communication with us.
Ken H.

Flor was tasked with finding a rental for what I consider to be a rather picky tenant (Myself). She listened carefully, didn't waste my time, and came up with the perfect result in very short order. Once locked in on the target, closed the deal quickly and got me what I believe was a spectacular deal.
Mike W. 

Mona is a fantastic realtor. She was thorough, thoughtful, and prompt in responding to all of our questions, providing professional guidance throughout our process. We highly recommend working with Mona.

Flor was professional and helped manage a confidential purchase. She went above and beyond in every aspect to help ensure the transaction and move-in went smoothly. I would highly recommend Flor Hasselbring to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff area.
Blair N. 

I would definitely recommend Mona Hellinga to anyone who needs an excellent real estate agent. She not only knows her job perfectly, but she is also a wonderful person: patient, totally committed, and an excellent adviser. She understands one's needs perfectly and will do everything in her power to have the property sold. She is also extremely attentive and devoted to buyers. And last but not least, she knows so many people that she can always provide a solution in the process and stay in constant contact with other real estate agents.

Doug & Irene K 

Flor Hasselbring was wonderful. We were first-time homebuyers, and she answered our many questions with great patience and expertise. She worked with our quick timeline; she knew just who to contact for the other services we needed, and we went from looking at properties to closing in fewer than 30 days. I wholeheartedly recommend her.
