"As first time home buyers, we were so incredibly lucky to have Caryl in our corner to help find our dream home. Her thoroughness (and thoughtfulness!) made each step during the home buying process a breeze. Caryl is not only knowledgeable in her field, but has an extensive network of recommended attorneys, inspectors and contractors that took care of us from start to finish. Caryl was a constant source of support and worked directly with us to address any questions or concerns that arose. We feel so fortunate to have worked with Caryl Dillon- we’re living in our dream home thanks to her!"

"Caryl was great. She listened to what we wanted, didn't waste our time looking at inappropriate listings and had a very high level of knowledge regarding luxury Gold Coast/Near North properties. This knowledge definitely saved us money on the purchase of our condo. Additionally, she responded to all our questions, via email, phone, text, at all hours of the day."
