One of our regular contributors(Ruth, where are you?) lives/lived in Western Springs and might be able to recommend a good real estate agent. She is not an agent, by the way, just knows lots of good ones.
Word of warning, though: Don't automatically assume the agent with the most signs in the area or the highest sales volume will always be the best agent. There are many factors that make a great agent, not just volume. Consider referrals, interview at least 3, ask some tough questions, and - above all - trust your instincts.
Here are some questions to consider:
How are you going to advertise my home?
How did you come up with my home's value?
Do you use photos in your advertising?
How much technology do you utilize in your marketing plan (i.e., web presence)?
Will you be at my closing?
What is your experience?
How often can I expect to hear from you during our relationship?
Will I be dealing with you directly, or a team member?
What is your commission?
What is the best way to prepare my home?
And don't be afraid to ask for references!
Best of luck.
