We were extremely pleased from start to finish. Creg & his team go beyond the expected service. We were already in process of moving out of state and he oversaw the corrections we needed to make following the inspection. We would recommend Creg unequivocally!by Bob D.
Both Creg and Liz McDonald and there team have been so helpful with our transition from California to Illinois. Beyond the purchase of our home, the McDonald's helped us integrate into the community! We are so happy with our home and our new life here in Champaign thanks to the McDonalds.by Shelly D.
Creg McDonald and the McDonald Group treated my family like we were part of their family. The whole experience was handled like they would have handled it for a member of their own family. It made the entire experience stress free and knowing they had our best interest in mind made it all a great experience. From handling the listing of our home to helping us view potential new homes, they were their for us through out. Even when we had doubts about whether we were going to be able make everything work out Creg and his team were there to ease our concerns and put a positive perspective on any situation. So, we would strongly recommend that when it is time for your family to buy or sell your home that you give Creg McDonald and a call. They will treat you like family!by Tom P.
I worked with Jackie Ehmen of the McDonald group and I couldn't be more pleased!! She was amazing!! She was always quick to respond to an email, phone call or even text message. This was my first home purchase and we had been dreading it bc of all the horror stories of first time home buying. We quickly learned that with the right realtor it could be a breeze! When my husband and I thought we weren't going to be able to make it to the home inspection Jackie went in our place. She dealt with all the back end operations and made this the easiest and best purchase ever!! She also was very open and willing to give advice to us since this was our first time and we had no idea what we were doing, and we felt she was always very honest with us. I would recommend Jackie Ehmen of the McDonald group to any home buyer but esp. first time home buyers!by Ashley K.
We worked with John Gilman of TMG to sell our house and buy a new home. He was very attentive at the height of the season and we always felt like a priority. John is very laid-back and has a 'no-pressure' attitude that matches the style of me & my husband. He was honest & kind, working with the upmost integrity. There were a few small glitches in our buying process that he handled with grace and expertise. I would highly recommend John Gilman to anyone in the area looking to buy or sell a home.by Kristen B.
To say the seller of the property Taylor helped me purchase was difficult to deal with is an understatement. Taylor handled it all with knowledge, humor, grace and class. She is a pleasure to work with, punctual, knowledgeable, and always followed up. She took care of the all the details, no matter how small or mundane. I would highly recommend Taylor to anyone and will work with her in the future!by Marcos A.
I was referred to Mike by a trusted banker, and from our initial meeting, felt he was the agent I needed. He's truly a nice guy, very well informed and took care to see that everything worked smoothly. He's honest and open, tolerated my quirkness, and made me feel that he was a partner in the sale of my property, instead of just a salesperson. I'd recommend Mike to friends, family or anyone without hesitation or reservationsby Rick S.
Very detail oriented. Sold both of our houses the day of or the day before it hit the market. I loved working with Sophie Martinkus, and Creg and Liz as always. Best group ever. They cover every detail, make it simple.by Jill P.
My 81-year old father-in-law was moving to be closer to family. We needed a realtor who has a tremendous amount of patience. Dawn was incredibly patient with him. She dropped everything on a Sunday afternoon (holiday weekend) to show him houses because he was only in town for that one day. Because he lives out of town, she took care of small details that honestly, do not fall in the "realtor's duties." In fact, my sister-in-law scolded him that Dawn was his realtor, not his personal assistant. She has been very kind to him. She took him to lunch and she left mums on the front porch of his new place. She is awesome and I would highly recommend her. Start to finish, the process only took (I think) five weeks. It went very smoothly. She listened to what he wanted; what price range he wanted to be in and that is all she showed him. He did not have a realtor in his hometown and she called and got some referrals and helped him to find someone to sell his house on the other end. She did a great job for our family.by Laura W.
After a very disappointing experience with another realtor, we contacted Creg. It was evident from the start that Creg understood how to effectively market our home to the greatest number of potential buyers. His understanding of the local real estate market, his own personal experience as a buyer/seller, and his knowledge of our neighborhood were all positives. He came up with a smart and aggressive plan to get our home sold in the least amount of time. It had already been on the market for seven months and we had already moved out of state, so we were anxious. Creg's team produced a beautiful, professionally-done listing and online presence complete with floor plan, video, and photos of our home. The interest in our home increased dramatically which resulted in more showings. Creg regularly communicated with us and always offered good ideas about getting our home into the 'sold' category. It worked! Our home sold within 7 weeks! We highly recommend Creg McDonald and his team. You can trust them to be professional, savvy, helpful, and get results.by Pat M.
If you're looking for a smooth sailing process in finding your home, I would HIGHLY recommend Allison Nickerson! She was extremely knowledgeable of the area, prompt to return calls and texts (day or night, along with weekends) and assisted with all my questions and needs. I was able to find the perfect first home I get to raise my growing family in :) Without a doubt, I would choose Allison from The McDonald Real Estate Group, to work with again for any of my buying or selling needs!!! Thank you for the great first experience!by Rachel B.
