"Terri has been an absolute pleasure to work with! I noticed from the beginning of my process of looking for a new home that she was very knowledgeable and connected to many with the industry that could help me find what I was looking for. I ultimately found my dream home, and she helped facilitate EVERY step of the process of purchasing it while also negotiating on my behalf for what ended up becoming an AMAZING deal on my new home. She is kind hearted and understanding of the specifics of the buyer, and in my case, she was truly a blessing during what could’ve been a much, much more stressful process. I would highly recommend her to ANYONE looking for a new home."

“Terri McAuley, did a fantastic job for us, stayed very professional.  Expressed her opinions but always listened and took into consideration what we had to say.  Followed through with every person that came for a showing and gave us a report with the potential buyers comments.

We would highly recommend Terri McAuley to any potential sellers of their property.”

- Astrid & Roy S. – Sellers at 720 N Larrabee Street 2020

“Terri took time to learn about my needs and requirements and spent significant time working with us to visit numerous properties and continue refining the search until we found the ideal fit. Her extensive market knowledge enabled her to show us properties we might not have considered along with those we felt might be "possibilities" . She was also a wonderful source for referrals for competent, professional contractors to help us with the work we needed after the closing.”

- JA R. – 2018 Buyer in the Loop

Terri McAuley is an outstanding broker with excellent knowledge of the Chicago real estate market, particularly Gold Coast, River North, Streeterville and adjoining areas. She is meticulous, professional, extremely responsive and accessible, and she is passionate about making the (often) stressful process as seamless as possible for her clients. Terri sold my luxury home in record time for top dollar. I highly recommend her for all of your real estate needs”

- Rosanne F. - 2016 Seller at The Fordham

“We met with Terri McAuley in October about selling our condo in Chicago. She suggested that we wait until February to list it because it would be a better time for prospective buyers. She also suggested that we use the services of a Stager to make the condo look better for showing. She did an excellent job and the condo actually looked much larger as a result.

Because we live out of town, Terri handled much more than just selling the unit. She recommended painters, carpet cleaners and other service people and took care of many other little things for us that we could not take care of ourselves. She was very professional in every aspect. The end result is that the condo sold within a couple of weeks after it was listed."

- Sharon & Joel K. – Sellers at The Fordham 2017

“Our experience working with Terri was exceptional! Her knowledge of the area and our building, The Fordham, is unmatched. We were under a time constraint to sell our condo and she went above and beyond to help us get it done. She had our condo photographed and on the market in just a few short days and sold within one week! We would highly recommend Terri to any of our friends and family. Thank you, Terri!”

- Megan Z. – Seller at The Fordham 2017

Terri McAuley did an excellent job! She was knowledgeable and thorough in all she did. She made sure to always update me after showings. She was readily available or if not, promptly got back to me. She helped me with all aspects of our sale including a contractor to do some repairs and an attorney recommendation when I asked her for both. She was always friendly, courteous and professional. She listened to our needs and concerns. She put together a beautiful brochure of her marketing experiences and comparable sales of homes in our area. Her expertise is what made us select her as our realtor and we are glad we did as she sold our home in 3 weeks!

- Caryn & Thomas W. – 2016 Sellers at The Fordham

“After 25 years in the Chicago suburbs we were ready to move back downtown. We contacted Terri and talked to her about what we were looking for.  Terri is very professional and also fun to work with. She listened, had some ideas, and we found "the one" on the first day out. We and she both felt we should keep looking though, so she showed us 25 to 30 more properties. Terri knows her stuff. After looking at a lot of great buildings we were able to make the right decision for us because she knows her clients and the city.  We recommend her without reservation.”

- Sue I. - 2015 Buyer in the Gold Coast

"Terri was incredible from start to finish. She was so professional and clearly knew exactly what we wanted and how to get it. She was quick and efficient and very organized. She staged our home beautifully with flowers she brought herself for photos for the brochure, and made the place look so good, we copied her on a weekly basis for showings. Terri communicated efficiently and regularly. Our place was on the market for a very short time and we were thrilled with all her hard work. I would recommend her highly to anyone considering selling their property, she is truly a very hard working, diligent and pleasant person."

- Caroline & Gavin T. – 2016 Sellers at 1212 N Lake Shore Drive

“I met Terri just after we bought our condo 13 years ago. I was impressed with her professionalism then and she kept in touch over the years. Though I know many brokers in Chicago and some that are friends, I knew that when we sold our condo, Terri would be our first choice to sell our property....she was clearly the right choice. Terri went above and beyond to get the outcome we wanted. She works extremely hard, is super easy to communicate with and really service oriented. We can't say enough positive things about her. She sold our condo in 15 days in a very competitive market. We highly recommend Terri.”

- Debbie & Peter B. – Sellers at 720 N Larrabee 2017

“Very good reputation. Knows the building. Handled property in the building for friends of ours. Very pleased with her performance.”

- Ron S. - 2016 Seller at The Montgomery

“It is a joy to work with Terri. She is hard working and professional. We are most grateful to her for her knowledge in putting us into the best property that suited our needs. Her patience and understanding is an asset. I would highly recommend Terri McAuley.”

- Jill W. – Buyer in River North 2016

“I was encouraged to consider Terri McAuley for the listing because of her particular knowledge with respect to sales at 500 West Superior. Terri's experience with the building was invaluable throughout the process of preparing the property for sale.

Terri did an extraordinary amount of work to prepare the property for sale. She made astute recommendations about improvements and provided access to her contacts whose performance was timely and an excellent value.

Terri was very professional. She listened to my concerns, understood my role as a fiduciary in selling the property, and took the time to educate me about the market, the building, and how to properly evaluate and respond to offers.”

- Patrick B. - 2019 Seller at The Montgomery

“We felt taken care of and understood from the first moment. Terri McAuley carefully planned and organized the road trips, so we could see a diverse number of objects in a short period of time. She never pressured us, and was always available with advice and guidance.

Her availability (including evening and weekends) and her dedication were unique. And also after the sale was over, she continued to care. She inquired after our moving, she helped getting insurance, electricity, cleaning, etc.

Thanks to Terri we were able to identify, close and move in within less than 3 months! And are very happy.”


- Roger & Verena S. – Buyers in the Gold Coast 2017

Terri's experience and knowledge of the buildings in the Gold Coast area were valuable to us during our decision making. She is very professional, hardworking and efficient. She has great follow through. She also cares about her client's long term satisfaction. Would definitely choose to work with Terri again!”

- Sandy F. - 2015 Seller at The Fordham
"Terri McAuley was highly recommended by a good friend in a similar situation. She knows the area well and really understood what we were looking for. She listed to us, was patient and always willing to work with our schedule. Overall a great experience!"
- Monika Z. - 2016 Buyer in River North

“Terri is amazing! She really knows her stuff and knows the city of Chicago - she helped my very picky husband and I find our first home within only a month of working together. Terri came to us through a recommendation from a friend, and I plan to recommend her to friends who are looking to buy in Chicago."

- Sarah & Brian C. – 2018 Buyers in Lincoln Park

"Terri's knowledge of the Chicago market and how to handle prospective buyers was invaluable. Beyond that, Terri made us feel important throughout this process and was truly our advocate in getting the sale done!"

- Kymberly & Jason F. - 2016 Buyers and Sellers

"Terri McAuley is not only an expert in downtown properties she had lived in the building we sold in-that was important to us because we felt an agent who had lived with the amenities available at the Fordham would be well equipped to sell our condo.
Terri is the ultimate professional yet warm, friendly and easily approachable. She made everything so easy we can hardly believe we just sold a condo!
Terri held an open house for agents the first day our condo was advertised. She also used a top notch professional photographer which seemed to draw a lot of interest. It is obvious Terri is very experienced and skilled at setting up the best possible circumstances for selling a property.
My husband and I would highly recommend Terri to anyone looking to sell a property. She is armed with the skills to make the entire process feel effortless. Terri is a true pleasure to work with!"

- Renee & John P. – 2016 Sellers at The Fordham

“In 2014 my sister and brother-in-law were in need of a Realtor to represent them in the sale of their condo at The Fordham in Chicago.

My sister searched for a realtor who had great experience and knowledge of the Chicago condo market, and most importantly, The Fordham. Fortunately, Terri McAuley was one of the Realtors they interviewed.

Her professionalism, knowledge of the lo­cal market and honesty were impressive.

I knew she had what it took to get the job done right. She has tremendous drive to make sure her customers are properly repre­sented. As a fellow broker, it was comforting knowing that the sale of my family’s condo would be in good hands. I will continue to refer Terri to anyone coming in or out of the Chicago area. She is a true professional.”
