Nunez Homes Team

with Michelle Nunez and Frankie Nunez


We couldn't be happier

"My husband and myself could not agree with what we wanted so Michelle and Frankie spent many days showing us homes we were interested. Michelle went out of her way to show us a place we never would have picked ourselves and we loved it! We couldn't be happier with their effort and ability to get us a home for our growing family!"

She has handled 2 different tenants for me and the transition between the two was seemless! She is tenacious when working for her clients and ensures that their best-interests are always at the forefront. She keeps in constant communication with me regarding matters relevent to my property and I trust her completely. Michelle has proven to be a connsumate professional in all aspects of her occupation and she has EARNED MY HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION & ENDORSEMENT! Trust me, you definitely want this Realtor in YOUR CORNER for all of your real estate needs!!!!!!"

Pleasure to work with

"Realtor Michelle Nunez has been unbelievable joy and pleasure to work with. She helped me to find a home to rent and found the perfect home. She is also my property mgr. for my new home as well, which has turned out to be a true blessing. She has and continues to go above and beyond to make sure the entire process finding and renting a home an enjoyable process. She regular checks in with me to make sure everything was going well and is eager to help with any problems with the home and is very prompt to address and fix any issues with the house. She has been great resource in helping to adjust to the new area. If I ever need anything she knows just the people to see or where I can find it. I was looking for a respectable dog breeder for a new puppy and within 5mintues of talking with Mrs. Nunez she provided me with the POC of one of the top breeders in the country. She is very knowledgeable and such a joy to work with. Not only is she my property mgr. but she has also become a friend. The business of renting, buying, selling, or real estate matters in general is foreign to me and it’s been a true blessing to have found Mrs. Nunez. She truly loves her job and genuinely cares for the people she works with and wants them to be happy. She is a true professional and caring person. I cannot see myself ever working with another realtor and give her my highest recommendation."

Attention to Detail

"I am writing this letter to express my sincere thanks to Michelle for the wonderful job she did selling our home in Lake Villa, IL. Selling a home in this market is not an easy task to begin with but we had circumstances that made it even more difficult. We owned the property but live in Lexington, KY and had been renting the house out for the past six years. We contacted Michelle about putting our house on the market in April 2013 knowing our renters were moving out the end of July.

After six years of having renters, the home needed a fair bit of work done to it. With me being out of the state, Michelle did a great job coordinating with painters, plumbers and gardeners to get some work accomplished before the house went on the market. She also did a fantastic job of coordinating the showings with the other realtors and our tenants.

The best testimonial I can give Michelle is that our tenants moved out of our home on 31 July and we closed the sale on 01 Aug. Michelle is a true professional and stays on top of every detail no matter how big or small. She was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Real Estate Agent."

- Kevin Kreide, Lake Villa, IL


"Michelle, Thanks for an outstanding job in selling our Home in Round Lake. Your professionalism, service, and dedication in ensuring the deal went through in spite of the fact that there were hiccups at the end truly speaks to your ability to keep things moving. Once again thanks and enjoy your vacation."

- Ramu and Archana


"Selling a home in this market requires a Realtor who can be available at a moment's notice and that is Michelle Nunez! We started working with Michelle over 3 years ago when we started to "consider" selling our home. Michelle had sold our friends' home and came highly recommended by them. She visited us several times, giving us suggestions on updating, staging, etc., waiting patiently until we were ready to sell.

Fast forward to March, 2013..We listed our home with Michelle after some "tough-love" reality checks. We built our home 24 years prior and were, of course, emotionally attached. We thought it should be listed higher than what Michelle thought. After some back-and-forth we came to an agreed price. Our home sold quickly and at exactly the price Michelle thought it should sell for (the full appraised value!).

This is Michelle's full-time job. She is aggressive with marketing, sending out a mass postcard mailing even after we received an offer,"just in case", she was in contact with us after every showing to give us feedback, and once an offer came in, she was in contact with the buyer's agent following up on all the details, even being present when the appraiser came through to point out all the upgrades.

Since we sold our home last month and moved out-of-state, I have received emails from neighbors wanting Michelle's contact info, one friend saying that her approached seemed "aggressive", which is what they are looking for!

I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle to family or friends. She did an awesome job for us!!"

- Larry & Lynne Lubeck, Antioch IL


"Selling a home in a depressed market is never easy. Adding to our anxiety, we did not know any realtors. Fortunately, we had received a postcard from Michelle Nunez and noticed she lived in our neighborhood. From the initial meeting, we knew she was the only person we could trust to sell our home. She understood our needs from the very beginning. Most important, she put us at ease, her suggestions were always thoughtful, very helpful and in our best interest.

We anticipated having to spend a lot of money to prepare our home for sale. Michelle’s experience and insight into the market saved us a lot of time, energy and money. We never felt like a client or a commission – she took the time to get to know us and understand our priorities.

We would not have sold our home as fast as we did, to the right family and received the price we wanted had it not been for her hard work and dedication. Michelle has a cheerful disposition while maintaining a respectful and professional demeanor. She knew the neighborhood, had a clear understanding of the market we were working in and appreciated the value and our attachment to our home. She was very accessible, literally just a phone call away. Upon request, Michelle referred a very affordable and competent attorney for the closing, suggested a professional packer who was key to the staging of our home and a landscaper who did excellent work for a reasonable price.
Selling a home is a very emotional experience.

Anyone can list a house and sell it. Michelle truly had our best interest a heart. When we decided we needed to sell, I never thought I would ever say that the experience was enjoyable. We can and do say that now solely due to Michelle Nunez."

- Ken and Gabriella LaRue

Patience & Kindness

"Dear Michelle, Thank you for your patience and kindness while working with us these past many months. Without your virtual staging, I doubt my home would ever have sold. And I doubt you will ever again have to answer so many emails! Anyone who is lucky enough to work with you is getting the very best."

- Barbara Klass, Barrington, IL

Stay the Course

"Michelle - Having our first buyer back out of the deal 10 days before an anticipated bank approval was unpleasant to say the least. But it led us to terminate our relationship with our initial broker and find you! From the start, you were honest, communicative, patient and encouraging. You went above and beyond countless times for us. With our relocation to Texas before the closing on the Illinois home, we were beholden to you to take care of several things that were not your responsibility.

You never uttered “I guess so”, our let out a sigh, or made excuses why you couldn’t. In fact, you exceeded our every expectation every step of the way! Quite honestly, I’m not sure Karen and I would have had the energy to persevere and get the second sale done if we were working with someone other than you.

While the financial implications will affect us for some time to come, we are so grateful to be “done” with the transition of our Illinois home. We are so blessed that you came into our lives at a particular time and stayed with us to guide us and keep us focused.

I hope you take much pride in reading this letter and the job that you do day in and day out for families just like ours. We hope that our “thanks” will perhaps remind you of our particular plight, our gratitude, and help you in challenging times, to stay the course!"

- Bill & Karen McPherson

The best

"Michelle, Thank you so much! for all of your help and patience in the last few months. I couldn't have done it without you! I am so excited to move into my new place. You are the best. Thank you again!!"

- Chelsea Herchenbach

Great Realtor

"I contacted Michelle Nunez because I received a fancy card in the mail and she was the realtor that sold my neighbors house, so I decided to call her. We met in our house and Michelle gave us all the information and details about the sale. She went over all our different options and with her recommendations we chose the best option to sell our home. The way that she works is very professional and organized. With her extra time and high quality work, the brochures, photos and promotions were awesome. If you contract her services she will send you every week a report about the people that have seen your house. Also, if you have any questions you can call her anytime and she will answer. Every time I needed her advice she was there. Michelle is a great realtor and a great person. Michelle Nunez sold our home in less than two months and I will recomend her to anyone that wants to sell their home. Thanks Michelle"

- Fernando & Vimary Vazquez

Awesome Realtor

"Michelle Nunez has been an awesome realtor for us. For us, we were PCSing from Spain to Naval Station Great Lakes and had no idea about the area. She listened to our concerns and requirements of where we were going to live, kept in contact with us for 2 months before we moved to the states, and even helped us out with our home owners insurance and mortgage! We found THE house on day 1 because she understood our concern and was a driven person to help us. I recommend Michelle to anyone who wants a realtor who knows the area, and is really focused on you. She made us feel like we are her only clients and everything was personalized and tailored to us"

- Juan & Tiffany Bueno

Exceptional Work

"To Whom it May Concern: Now that the dust has settled on our long ordeal to sell our house in Chicago, I wanted to take a moment to document the exceptional work job done by Michelle Nunez.

We put our home on the market in December 2007 with another agent. By April of 2010, we had received no offers and the only input from our realtor was to keep dropping the price (but never advising us to get out ahead of the falling values). In conversation with the landscaper, my wife said that we probably needed to change our realtor, and the landscaper brought up Michelle’s name, not as a personal friend, but as someone whose reputation she knew. This led to a phone contact and Michelle became our realtor.

Michelle was able to negotiate the sale of our home on May 25, 2011, as a short sale with us owing the bank the difference, so one might ask, why do we think so highly of the job Michelle did when we took a loss and still owe the bank money? The answer is in the extra steps she took to keep our home a viable sale candidate, and her extraordinary efforts to keep us in the loop and not discouraged. These things included:

· Brought in a handyman to refresh paint in the living/dining room and cleaned the family room carpet

· Took down the window treatments, fixed the holes and touched up the paint

· Changed light bulbs as needed

· Noticed the AC was not working correctly, had it fixed and installed mothballs in the outside unit to prevent further damage by field mice

· Noticed a small ceiling stain, had the roof leak fixed and personally repainted the ceiling

· Constantly took care of snow removal from the driveway so the home could be viewed

· Arranged for a real estate attorney to represent us

Michelle deserves kudos for everything she did in a very challenging market in bringing this situation to a satisfactory conclusion – we only wish she had been with us in December 2007!"

Special Touches

"Michelle, thank you for all of your hard work in helping me with my home. Through the challenging times, you remained optimistic and realistic. I thank your candid responses and honest feedback. And most of all, I thank you for closing the deal. For those looking to sell/buy/rent a home, Michelle is one of the most hardest working Realtors/Brokers that I know. She will do everything within her legitimate power to close the deal. She is trustworthy, dedicated, reliable and most of all honest in her evaluation of properties. She has a knack for adding those 'special touches' in which each transaction is specially tailored to each individual client. She will meet your needs and exceed your expectations."

- Tonya C.

Great Agent!

"Thank you Michelle. You have been a great agent and we appreciate everything you have done for us. I greatly appreciate the time and effort you put into finding us a great rental and your loyalty and honesty means a lot to us. You're the best and I truly would recommend you to anyone."

- The Zavala's


"Thank you very much for assisting us in the purchase of our new home! You actually found the perfect house for us & we couldn't be happier! Our deep gratitude for your ourstanding service!"

- James & Maria Robles

Thank you!

"Michelle, I just wanted to say Thank You for all your support & help during this home buying process. I feel like I have made a new friend in the process... you have been great & helpful! I know things didnt exactly go smoothly with the bank, so I wanted to give you this token of appreciation in helping with my FIRST home purchase! I hope you enjoy this gift as much as I am going to enjoy my new home"

- Linda Tuttle

Extra Mile

"I want to thank you again for all your hard work. It was such a pleasure to work with you. I could not believe how fast you were able to sell my home in such a difficult market. I was so impressed how by the way you started calling other realtors and scheduled very successful showings immediately. So many realtors just wait for phone calls, but you took it the extra mile and brought the realtors to you and to my home. My home was listed with another agent prior to you and it just sat there. Then one day that realtor called me to say he wanted to lower the price significantly. You were able to sell my home and secure a buyer in less than three weeks and never even suggested lowering the price. You were just fantastic, and I will definitely let everyone know just how great you truly are. I was also thankful that you always kept in contact with me every step of the way. I never felt nervous, because I just knew it was in great hands. Good luck to you and happy selling!!!"

- Lisa Reitenbach, Gurnee, IL


"I met Michelle Nunez while buying a home (imagine that). While Michelle was not our agent, (she represented the Seller) she went over and above for us. We ended up having some issues with the mortgage. Michelle was the one that helped us out, not our agent. She dealt with all the aspects of this sale, even though it was not her responsibility to do so. I can only imagine how much she does for one for her actual clients. The care and professionalism she shows is not only outstanding but memorable. While Michelle was not our agent, after working with her, I had wished she had been. We were very lucky to have had her in any part of this sale."

- Joe & Leslie Weingart, Lake Villa, IL

Dream A Reality

Realtor of Choice

"If you are looking for a realtor who can market your house exceptionally well, get the answers that you need regarding complicated situations, and give timely and meaningful feedback after showings, then Michelle Nunez is the realtor of choice. As a family, we decided that we wanted to get out of the area (fully aware that the market was depressed and that we would have to take a loss on the sale of the house). Michelle informed us of the options that were available to us and we decided to go with a short sale. Michelle’s utilization of the latest technology (virtual online tours, room staging, lighting, etc.) along with her excellent networking skills, allowed us to have numerous showings and an offer within 30 days of listing. With assistance of a real estate attorney and Michelle, we were able to present an offer to the bank with a speedy acceptance. Needless to say, the buyer had to back out of the deal due to complications with their finances. However, Michelle was able to generate multiple offers after the house went back on the market. The negotiation, acceptance, and closing with the bank went through seamlessly. We were extremely pleased with the quality of her customer service, her passion for the business, and her follow through to ensure that nothing held up the closing process. When it comes to selling or buying a home, you need to seek the assistance of Michelle Nunez"

- Charles and Monica Stringer

Met every expectation

"Michelle was referred to us by a friend and she met every expectation. When we had a question she would provide the answer or, would look up the answer and give us a response within the same day. She has the experience and knowledge and, she provided excellent choices for us to pick from. I would gladly recommend Michelle to any person that sought my advise. It is my opinion that Michelle is a top notch agent.

- Ruben Fox, Antioch, IL


"Michelle is nothing short of awesome! Her attention to detail and knowledge regarding the market was spot on. She listened to our needs and responded with great promptness and enthusiasm every time. As she was helping us sell, she took the time to go the extra mile, even meeting me the same day I called her for an initial visit. You don't ever have to worry when you are with the Michelle Nunez team because you know that you are with a group of people who truly care about your needs of selling or buying your home and not just to make money! I would recommend her team to everyone and anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home!"

- Jennifer Derengowski, Round Lake Beach, IL

So happy with my whole experience

"Being a first time seller because my deceased husband used to do this, it was so pretty scary for me. But Frankie and Michelle were very honest with me , very accomodating with my schedules, answered my calls that makes me feel comfortable throughout the whole selling process. Michelle helped me so much with staging our house so we were able to sell it quickly. So happy with my whole experience . Thank you so much Michelle and Frankie."

- Susan Soriano

Michelle and Frankie were awesome to work with!

"Michelle and Frankie were awesome to work with! Being first time home buyers, the process was pretty scary for us, but Frankie and Michelle helped put us at ease. We had some issues with our first lender, and they were able to recommend a lender and an attorney for us. Talk about the dream team! We were really happy with our whole experience. Frankie always answered or returned my calls and really made us feel comfortable throughout the whole home buying process. I will 100% recommend Michelle and Frankie to any of our friends and family looking to purchase a home. :)"
