The Hilda Jones Team Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Jenny Jones did an excellent job for us.

She knew what we wanted and did not waste alot of time looking at things that weren't a match for us. Felt like I had known her forever, she is so fun and has such an awesone personality. When it was time to sell, back to Jenny and she did not disappoint. Everything was always taken care of in a prompt manner. Thanks Jenny!

Dawn Bick Youngman

So grateful to Hilda and her team with the preparation and sale of our family home in West Dundee, Illinois.

Hilda sold the house even before it was live on MLS. I highly recommend anyone that is looking to sell or buy a home in the Fox River Valley Area to contact the Hilda Jones team. You will not be disappointed!

Ellen Day

My relationship with Ms.

Jones began at her birth. I have watched her grow into an unstoppable force in the field of negotiations! A customer-service fanatic who demands (and receives) perfection in her client relationships. There is no task or job that I would hesitate to give to her. Should you equate size and youth for lack of experience and success, you do so at your own peril.

Ken and Doria

Kim was amazing through our experience buying our first home!

She scheduled home showings that worked with our schedules; she even drew up the offer for our home late on a Sunday night so we could move fast and get our offer accepted. She was very knowledgeable about the area and helped us make the right decision. She was always approachable, responsive and extremely helpful as we navigated through the home buying process. Thank you Kim for everything!

Sheri is a great agent.

She helped us with our sale and purchase. She was always there to answer any questions we may have had. Sheri also took the time to explain the nuances of the current real estate market. We are grateful to have worked with such an knowledgeable and hard working agent. THANKS Sheri!!! Jason & Katy Guyon

Jason Guyon

Can't say enough good about Kim and her team.

They took over selling our house after six months with another company that didn't do much more than make brochures and put a sign in our yard. After meeting and hiring Kim we knew right away things would change. she took charge and marketed our house with creative ideas. Within a week we had a contract. It really makes a difference which real estate professional you choose and I highly recommend Kim!

Sheri was fantastic through the whole process.

We were looking to move in from out of state and only had limited time to look at places. She was more than accomodating in showing us all the properties we were interested in. She was also very proactive in helping us get some issues with the lease patched up before I even had a chance to respond. Would highly recommend her to others and would want to work with her again in the future.

It was enjoyable having Rita as our realtor both for buying our new house and selling our old house.

She is very knowledgeable about the the process and was very responsive to our questions throughout the time she worked with us. Even when we were getting stressed about some of the complications that invariably arise in such transactions she was calming and kept us on track. We would definitely work with her again and would highly recommend her.

M. Green

Kim is amazing and put together a wonderful package to present my home.

I used her on another property as well and both listings went quickly and at asking price. She listed them spot on! I was not in the market to sell my primary residence just yet but she convinced me to do so and I am glad I did. I highly recommend Kim and her team.

Frank Esterle

My fiance and I happened to stumble upon Kim when beginning our search for our first home.

As first-time home-buyers, we did not initially have a super clear idea of what we were looking for. Kim was incredibly informative and patient with us (and I'm sure it wasn't easy at times!). She put in  lots of effort to help us understand what we were looking for, and also get a clear idea herself. After looking at countless homes, we viewed one Kim had picked out for us. This was the first home that we both immediately fell in love with, and it was exactly what we were looking for. Thanks to Kim's patience, diligence, and professionalism throughout the closing process, this is now our home! Kim honestly made herself available any time we had a question or wanted to talk something over. She also made us feel comfortable throughout the entire, otherwise intimidating process for first-time home buyers. She never once pushed us towards a home, and made it her mission to help us find the perfect home for us. We would absolutely recommend finding your dream home with Kim whether you are a first-time home buyer or looking for your third home. 

Kristie & Nick

Jenny is fantastic!

She walked us through every step of the terrifiying process of being a first time buyer. She was always there to answer every call, text and email. Highly recommended!!

Kelly Smith

Hilda Jones and Team did a great job in selling my sister's condominium.

My husband and I especially liked and were grateful for her assistance in getting necessary work done to prepare it for sale. Being at a distance from the site, it was helpful to have recommendations for carpet and tile installation, painting and other things that were needed before we could sell. the workers kept in touch with us and completed the jobs promptly. Hilda exposed the condo commercially very well so that a buyer was found quickly. She kept us in the loop throughout the process and kept in good touch with us to keep us informed and answer our many questions. Baird and Warner's attorney, Eric Sdrenka was helpful as well, answering legal questions and representing us at the closing. I would highly recommend Hilda and Team for anyone considering sale of property and give them a 5 star rating.

Gloria

Kim went above and beyond to take the extra time and effort to help me make this huge purchase.

Theresa McMahan

We could not have been more happy with having Jenny as our real estate agent.

The things that we were looking for was somebody who would be responsive, knowledgable, and do everything she can to make sure that we got our dream house.My wife was pregnant during the home search. Jenny had a big challenge to help us find the perfect house, and to close quickly, so that we would be moved in before the baby came. She was able to show us a few houses, after hearing what our needs and budget were. She showed us a house that we absolutely fell in love with. She was super knowledgable and responsive throughout the whole process. She helped us come up with a strategy, recommended a lawyer and a loan officer, and helped make sure that any questions/concerns we had were answered immediately.We are so thankful that Jenny was with us through this whole process. What would normally be a stressful time was turned in to a pleasant experience. She understood how important this was to us. Even after closing she took a picture of my wife and I holding a "sold" sign in front of our new home, and sent us a gift for our baby daughter. I highly recommend Jenny to anybody looking for a real estate agent.

Brian Raff

I would definitely recommend Kim Kern for your agent!

My experience with Kim was perfect! My situation went from just looking to I really need to buy a home within a month. Kim was always available, she always responded in a timely manner - I never felt ignored or like I was inconveniencing her in any way. Meeting with her was always a pleasure and she always addressed all of my questions-and I always had a lot. Kim was very knowledgeable in every way and I felt like she knew exactly what I was looking for in a home. Thank you Kim for making this uneasy venture easy! ~ Bought home in East Dundee 2016

Callista R.

We bought a house in 7/2017 and couldn't be more pleased with Hilda.

She not only worked around our schedule, she managed to show us houses at the drop of a hat, despite having our 4 kids in tow, and always setting up back-to-back appointments - vital with a toddler! I cannot recommend her highly enough. Within approx 5 weeks we had made an offer and had a closing! Hopefully we won't have to move again for at least 5 years, but if we do, I'm Going with Hilda!

Mindy

My family recently worked with Jenny on our move out to the Chicagoland area from Michigan.

Coming from a different state it was very difficult to know the best neighborhoods, schools and hotspots but Jenny was full of great knowlege that really helped us narrow down our search. She always had my families best interest at heart and always led us down the right path. I would recommend Jenny to any new homebuyer!

Jenny & Jerome Harrsion

Hilda has sold TWO homes for me!

She got the price I wanted and the houses sold quickly. I would not hesitate to recommend her. She sold my home in West Dundee in 2001 when the market was slow, but we had quite a few showings and consequently a sale. She also sold my home in Pingree Grove when there was many short sales and foreclosures at much cheaper prices. She is honest and reliable. She always got back to me whenever I had a question or wanted feedback. You will be happy to have her as your realtor.

Carol Schroeder

Sheri recently helped me buy a home in Algonquin, IL.

This was my second time buying a home, yet Sheri’s expertise and advice were invaluable. She was really patient and helpful and managed to keep the communication between us clear and precise all the time. We never felt that we were being rushed to make a decision. I wish Sheri best of luck and continued success. I'd have no second thoughts in recommending her.

Sirdar Guda

Very professional and knowledgeable about what it takes to sell homes , she was my realtor for my mother’s and my own house 6 months apart.

Michael Harvey

Kim helped us find our new home and she was great every step of the way.

Very patient while we looked for a home, I frequently asked her at the last minute to show us homes and she was very accommodating. After we made an offer she was there for us whenever we needed anything. Kim always followed up on our questions to make sure we got any information we needed. I’ve worked with other realtors before and Kim is someone I would not hesitate to call again!

Arianne & Larry

Jenny was such an amazing realtor to work with!

Being a first time homebuyer, she walked us through every step of the way! I remember times calling her late at night with a question, and she was so quick to answer and give us the answers. We used all of her referrals from the inspection to the lawyer, Elizabeth Ruble, and even Derek Hedlund from Pacor mortgage for the lending side which all were fantastic! I truly appreciate Jenny’s extra steps that she takes for her clients. She has the ultimate team. I would definitely refer her to anyone I know trying to buy a house!

David Z.

Hilda is very honest, upfront and no hidden agenda.

We liked her professionalism so much since she didn't have any other agenda than helping us to stage our house, fix items and be ready for the visits. Also she was very supportive of our interests and priorities. Glad to work with Hilda and I would love to work with her again.

Mani Kandasamy

Great experience.

We listed our house with Jenny Jones and she did a remarkable job. We would use Jenny Jones again and would highly recommend her! We just closed today and it was a great experience.

Jennifer Harrison

Rita was nothing less than top notch from beginning to end.

She helped us with the sale of our home recently and the recommendations she made were perfect. We were able to sell and successfully close in record time. She is straight-forward and to the point. Even after the closing, she was also thorough in the follow-up. We had a very complicated same-day/double-close/out of state move involved, but she helped us sail through it without any problem. Highly recommended. Reach out to her today, you won't be disappointed!

Jay Irwin

I initially met with Kim to sell my previous house.

After I was approached about renting it instead, Kim didn't miss a beat in helping me search for my next dream home. She was adaptable and was able to quickly navigate home buying during Covid-19 quarantine. She encouraged me not to settle and once we found the perfect home, she moved quickly to ensure that I beat other potential offers. This was the third house I've bought and Kim was by far the best realtor I have worked with.

Johanna T.

We worked with Kim to buy our first home-in an area we were not familiar with at all!

!! She asked what we were looking for and found us exactly what we needed. She was knowledgeable about the area and was always fast in her replies to any of our questions-and we had a lot. We will work with her  again and would refer anyone to her!

Joanne & Scott Knefel

Danielle Miller

We chose Hilda as she is known in the area for many years.

We had the pleasure of working with Jenny, Hilda's daughter. From the first phone call placed to their office, to our closing, we were treated with professional and friendly service! Jenny was very knowledgeable in all aspects of the market, appraisal tips, and listing of our family home. Was very refreshing to leave it in her hands. Had an offer in a couple of days!! Cannot thank Hilda and her team ENOUGH for selling our home!!

Roxanne Alesi

Rita helped us find our new home last summer.

She understood right away what we were looking for and showed us great properties. We fell in love with the 4th or 5th one, it was a great experience. We naturally listed our old house with Rita, who was very helpful and available. The house took a little longer to sell than we expected but thanks to Rita's advice, we made the right listing and upgrade decisions and finally found a buyer.

Raphael B

Jenny Jones did an excellent job for us.

She knew what we wanted and did not waste alot of time looking at things that weren't a match for us. Felt like I had known her forever, she is so fun and has such an awesone personality.

Jonathan Peterson

We met with Kim Kern for the first time on a Monday evening in our home.

We had prepared our home, so we believed it was ready to sell. Kim walked through our home with us and made one suggestion, which we immediately updated according to her suggestion. We had no idea what price we should ask for our home, but Kim guided us through that step as well. She first informed the realtors in our area that our home was up for sale while she began the advertising, the picture taking, and the gathering of information to present the home well in our MLS listing. I think we showed our home the very next day, and by the end of the week we had multiple showings and three offers, one of which we accepted which was well over the asking price. Kim was very diligent and presented our home very well. If we happen to buy or sell again in this area of IL, we certainly will seek to utilize Kim's services again.

R. LaPine

Kim is a top-rated professional, which is hard to find.

We were lucky meeting & working with her. At the time of purchase, we were newbies in terms of the main things to know/watch when buying a house, nothing to say about procedures. Kim helped us a lot with guides, tips, advises & visions; also, she was always in the loop with us up to the closing. What I have found helpful is that Kim has a well build network of professionals (inspectors, lawyers etc.) which saved me a ton of time and money. I would definitely recommend working with Kim without a doubt.

Roman & Anzhela

Kim is everything you want in a realtor: knowledgeable and honest.

I am a single mom and Kim helped me and my five-year-old son get our dream home. I didn’t know exactly what I wanted, just what I didn’t want. Kim never made me feel like I was wasting her time while I looked at tons of houses all the way from St. Charles to Crystal Lake. What I appreciate about Kim is that she always presents you with options. Whenever I had an obstacle, Kim would immediately say, “You can do A, B, or C, and here are the pros and cons for each one.” I also asked Kim for a lot of recommendations during the process of buying my home. Every person she connected me with provided high-quality work and never went beyond the cost of their quote. I know this is a reflection of the work Kim has put into building positive relationships with other professionals. Home buying is stressful and time consuming. At one point, I found out that it was urgent I get a quote for some duct work I would need to have fixed before I could move into the foreclosed home I was purchasing. That same day I had a death in my family so I could not address house tasks for about a week. Without me asking, by the end of the day Kim had texted me with a quote for the duct work and asked if I wanted to her to call a few more companies to compare prices. She never mentioned that this went above and beyond her responsibilities as a realtor, but I know it did, and her help and kindness was greatly appreciated. If I were to ever sell my home, I would want Kim to sell it. If I ever bought another home, I would immediately call Kim. She is just darn good at what she does. Kim does not have to play games as a realtor because she is kind, knowledgeable, and takes her job seriously.

Maggie Z.

Hilda was very efficient in getting my house sold on the first bid.

She was accessible and easy to get in touch with. She explained things in user friendly terms. She had a great team that I was able to use for some of my other home needs. I would highly recommend the Hilda Jones team! Sold a Condo home in 2018 in South Elgin, IL

Allison Moe

Rita (and team) We just wanted to express our never ending gratitude to all of you.

You made our first home buying adventure fun and exciting. We really couldn't have met a nicer Real estate agent or team! Thank you for being a huge part of our newest chapter.  Always grateful, Lindy and Mike

Jenny was amazing.

Being a first time home buyer she was able to explain alot of things about each property I was looking at and what things I could do to increase value and what was good and bad about the resale future of each property. Or what a future rental would look like.

Sheri was excellent in finding the house of our dreams.

..and was very patient with us as we must have looked at close to 30 homes. Sheri was very helpful with all questions we had and made great recommendations.

Donald Logan

Very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and values.

NEVER any pressure, always happy to show properties, and always accessible to work around your schedule. Highly recommend! I have used Hilda and her team multiple times, always pleased with their service and helpfulness. Hilda has been  living and selling in this area for decades and really knows her stuff! Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 in East Dundee, IL

Paula Lauer

We loved working with Rita to find our new home in Dundee.

We ended up buying a house that we hadn't previously considered thanks to Rita's suggestion, and we are SO HAPPY with our purchase. We are moving in from another state, so she was did a great job working around our travel schedule. We provided her with a list of homes that we wanted to see on Zillow and she quickly scheduled all of the walkthroughs. Additionally, she was very intuitive and found additional properties that she thought we'd like. Rita was very responsive to our emails and answered any questions that we had immediately. She worked with the seller's agent to gather information and keep the process moving quickly and smoothly. Thanks to her efforts we got a great deal and were able to close on time.

Kim Kern has been the most outstanding realtor my husband and I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

We were new to purchasing a home and she was extremely knowledgeable and patient with us. She was always ready to answer any questions we had and showed us every house we wanted to see. We had a strict budget to work with and she helped us find and close on our first family home!! We were excited and nervous throughout the process and Kim helped us get through it all. We could never have done it without her. I wish I could give her more than 5 stars, so this review will have to do!! If you want to purchase a house or sell your house, call Kim Kern!! I promise you won’t regret it!!

Jenny is fantastic!

She walked us through every step of the terrifiying process of being a first time buyer. She was always there to answer every call, text and email. Highly recommended!!

First let me state that I am extremely Thankful to have had Jenny as my dedicated Realtor!

  In a very difficult market, Jenny never wavered in her efforts to sell my home.    A little history ... I initially listed with Remax and was very unhappy with the lack of marketing efforts and minimal traffic that came through my home while being listed with them for over 18 months.  I switched over to Baird & Warner (Jenny) this past Winter based on the great things that I heard about the Hilda Jones Team, and was beyond thrilled with the quick attention, aggressive marketing efforts and amount of traffic that started to come through my home almost immediately.    Jenny has solid knowledge of the housing market and did an excellent job with keeping me in the know as it pertained to home values in the local area.  She never hesitated to let me know when it was time for me to seriously consider a price adjustment due to the markets conditions.  This was hard for me to consider and accept at times, but I trusted her knowledge and the analytics that she would continually share with me.     Thanks to Jenny's hard work and "can do" attitude, she managed to sell my beautiful home in Carpentersville within a matter of months of me listing with her.  If you are serious about selling your home, Jenny Becker is your girl!   Sincerely,   Michelle Zeid

Michelle Zeid

Spent a lot of time to help us find the perfect house!

She worked around our schedule. She even bought us a house warming present! She's the best! She checked out over 30 homes with us. She even pointed out flaws and gave ideas on how to change things around. ~ bought home in Lake in the Hills 2015

Katie & Carl

Our experience with Baird & Warner was positive.

We found our agent, Sheri Jonas, to be very personable and respectful to our situation in selling my Father's house, who had recently passed away. She did a lot of market research and we were very happy with the competitive sale price that we agreed to list at. We would strongly recommend Baird & Warner to anyone who is looking to buy or sell.

Richard Wendt

Hilda was very professional when she came to the house to take our listing.

She listened to our concerns and gave us realistic advice. We had numerous viewings and although we were out of state she was in constant contact with us. From listing to closing took only ninety days,and went very smoothly. ~ Sold our home on 503 Gentle Breeze, C'Ville - Feb. 2015

P. Mathis

Luckily happened to meet her while viewing a listing.

She took the time to find out what we were looking for and helped us determine what housing option best met our needs. Gave us great tips throughout the process and even after closing stayed in contact to help us.

Kim Sipe

I found Kim through an internet search and she was quick to respond to my initial inquiry.

She was excellent to work with! We had 2 days to find a home and she helped us narrow down the search to fit our requirements. Kim made this search as stress-free as possible. I highly recommend Kim Kern!

Sarah Miles

I can't say enough about the professionalism that Kim displayed throughout the sale of my home.

She was my counselor and adviser and helped me to get my house sold while enduring very difficult circumstances. I lived 500 miles away and Kim went above and beyond to do things that I would have had do to if I was living in the area. She really was awesome and always had a can do attitude! ~ Sold home in Carpentersville 2015

Diane L.

Sherri was fantastic to work with.

Without her I never would have realized I could own my own home instead of renting for the same cost. She was extremely helpful throughout the entire process, honest and willing to answer any questions I had.

Krystal Harkness

Very helpful, patient, goes above and beyond the call of duty.

You can trust Kim will guide you in the right direction and make you feel comfortable in the buying and selling of your real estate.

Stuart & Lily Miller

Kim was extremely helpful, patient, and understanding.

She made sure I got into view every home I wanted to see, she let me view some houses more than once if I wanted to. She was very quick at responding to all calls and text with any questions I had. She was very quick to react when I wanted to  put an offer on a home. She also was very patient with me on making decisions and did whatever it took to make sure I was happy with my choice . She was very involved in my whole process and always had the best advice to give. I would highly recommend Kim to anyone who is looking to buy, or sell a home! Bought a Townhouse home in 2019 in Algonquin, IL

Kim Kern was my realtor of choice, as I was moving out of state and knew I could rely on her skill and expertise to get my home sold.

Bottom line, thanks to her efforts, my home SOLD (in a weak market) and I was able to move on in a timely manner. Whether you're looking to buy a home or place your current home on the market, it's an easy decision...contact Kim Kern

Fred Meier

As soon as I found out my husband was being transferred to another part of the state, I knew I needed to get a real estate agent and get our house on the market quickly.

Jenny Jones came highly recommended by a trusted friend so I called Jenny the very next day and set up an appointment to meet with her.  Jenny gathered some information from me during our first conversation and then when we met the next day, she was completely prepared to discuss the sale of our home and had already researched comparable home sales in our area.  Having the crucial information Jenny provided allowed my husband and I to price our home competitively and we were ready to sell.  Several days later Jenny had a photographer come to our home and she created a wonderful brochure with awesome photographs as well as a list of all of our home's recent upgrades. Once we had an offer on the house things moved quite quickly. Jenny made herself available throughout the entire process from putting our house on the market to the closing of the sale. My husband and I had already moved into our new home in another part of the state before our original home sold and both of us were very grateful that Jenny was so helpful and willing to manage the final details before the closing. I don't have any reservations in recommending Jenny Jones to any home buyer or home seller.  Jenny is friendly, outgoing and a great advocate for her clients. Sincerely, Sandy Bitter

Sandra Bitter

I can't begin to tell you how amazing Jenny is!

Jenny really gets it, she does an excellent job in making you feel comfortable, she is very honest, strait forward and makes sure that you understand everything...every step of the way. Jenny is my go to when it comes to any real-estate matter.

Jenny and the Hilda Jones team were phenomenal to work with!

Jenny gave us an accurate analysis on our home, had a great strategy and sold our home in not even a week on the market. Not only that but helped us find our dream home. I would highly recommend her and her team.

Brandon Zauhar

Rita sent very good properties to go look at, and very quick to respond to our calls.

Did all the investigation of HOA rules and regulations for pets prior to our offer so as not to waste any time. She was great every step of the way and very knowledgeable of the NW suburbs. We have been in our new home three weeks and could not be happier! Thanks Rita!

Bob Roemer

We are very happy with Hilda and her team, she will be number 1 on our list if we decide to buy or sell in the future.

Everything went smooth and we were very happy with the way things were handled in the final closing. A Great Big Thank you to Hilda Jones and her Team.

DELORES FROST

I honestly can’t imagine going through this process without Kim Kern.

When I knew I was ready to sell my townhome and move into a single family home, my first thought was Kim. She’s knowledgeable, empathetic, responsive...Kim is all the things. I joked that she was like a therapist but this market is like no other, and Kim held my hand, had my back and was a trusted advisor through the whole process of buying and selling and same day closing. You are just unlucky if you don’t have this lady working for you!

Lora Del Page

Kim did a terrific job managing our expectations and walked us through what can an emotional rollercoaster when selling a home.

Kim was prompt in her responses and the attention to our needs was dealt with cotton hands. We highly recommend using Kim for any and all buying and selling needs. ~ Sold home in Elgin 2016

Jeff & Colleen M.

Hilda Jones was very patient and courteous.

She never tried to pressure into purchasing one house over another. I would definitely recommend Hilda to anyone else we know who is looking to buy or sell.

CARYL & JIM MARTINEZ

Kim is personable and great to work with.

She assisted with both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. In both transactions, Kim was professional and very responsive. She took the time to explain the process, and kept us on task to ensure that we didn't miss any documents or deadlines. Kim provided guidance on preparing our home for sale, and also offered some contacts for home inspectors, real estate attorneys, etc. We really appreciated the way she facilitated so much of the process. Everything went very smoothly. We sold our old home in record time, and we thank her for that!

Sue Casten

It was a pleasure to work with Jenny.

She was very professional and the selling of our home went extremely smooth thanks to her. We would highly recommend Jenny for your real estate needs!

Ardell & Sheila Scienski

Kim did an outstanding job selling our home in Sleepy Hollow, we had an offer on the table in the first week.

We were most impressed with her knowledge of the area and the speed at which she got us on the market with a beautiful brochure. Thanks Kim!

Carrie

I have bought and subsequently sold 7 homes as my personal residence during my lifetime.

My most recent sale was on March 23, 2021, and Hilda Jones was my agent. She represented the epitome of what I could possibly imagine that an agent could do to help me sell my home. Hilda Jones helped in so many ways, this write-up would be so much longer if I listed all she did. If you want someone to truly represent your best interests, choose Hilda Jones.

Glenn Dallas

I seriously could not have made it through the house buying process without Jenny!

Home purchase is exciting for sure but it is not without worry or stress... but she kept me calm. She definitely goes above and beyond and I could not thank her more.
