“Selling our first home felt like we were selling a piece of our family, it was bittersweet. Adding in the recent restrictions due to COVID and the hurdles that entails, made the perfect storm. Going through such a delicate process with anyone but the Laurie Duepner Real Estate Group would have been a mistake. They set out a sales plan, and executed it with precision!

“I just purchased my new home. My agent, Laurie Duepner, ( and yes, my daughter:) did a great job finding me a new house. She helped me though a very emotional time, and was very patient with me to find exactly what I needed. Even though the home had multiple offers on it, her knowledge of the market I feel gave me the upper hand and got my offer accepted. She handled so many of the little details with the seller for me, and made the transaction run very smooth.
Her entire team made me feel that they were available for all of my needs and questions. I highly recommend Laurie Duepner as an agent to use for your buying or selling needs. She's very professional and extremely knowledgeable in the real estate market.
She goes the extra mile in customer service.”
“Laurie Duepner and her team were so responsive, informative and supportive during the purchase of our home. They were able to navigate through the process efficiently, especially during the social distancing restrictions we were under. I can’t thank them enough for answering our endless questions with such patience!!!”
“Thank you, Laurie! During a stressful time, Laurie was so calm, positive, and made the process as easy as possible! Laurie was always available when we needed her, even if it was 10pm and we wanted to ask her one...more...thing. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Laurie and appreciated her knowledge and negotiation skills—even when we didn’t see it first hand, we knew she was working hard for us!”
“Laurie made our home selling experience so easy! She was quick, efficient, and made herself available whenever we needed her! She helped us stay calm during a stressful time and we are grateful for ...”
“Life dictated the challenging circumstance of having to sell my house, which is a bit of an odd duck for the area it’s in, the week of Thanksgiving. With Teresa’s help and expertise though, the process couldn’t have gone any better. We had ten showings in five days on the market (again, this was Thanksgiving week!) and received *three* offers on the house. Within a week of listing, the house was under contract. I’ve worked with four different real estate agents over the past ten years, and no one comes close to matching Teresa’s knowledge, energy, friendliness, availability, or any other quality you need in a realtor. Can’t recommend her highly enough.”
“Laurie pays close attention to all the details which made for a smooth transaction.”
“Laurie really knows our neighborhood. She knew exactly how to price our home and get it sold quickly. The photos, advertising online, and printed material were all fantastic.”
“Laurie Duepner helped me find a rental 3 years ago, and a home to purchase recently. She is very attentive and always replies to me very timely. She does not get flustered and is great at reassuring me. She is extremely pleasant. She guided me through every step of the process and I have complete faith in her.”
“Laurie is a consummate professional who knows the soft sell with tons of information works. the best. I will recommend Laurie every time.
Sincerely, Bob Schreiber”
“Laurie does what I need an Agent to do, she tells me what I need to hear not what someone thinks I want to hear. She has the expertise I need to make the best decisions possible”
“If you want to sell your house, call Laurie! Our neighbors were amazed at how much traffic she generated to show our home. We recieved 3 offers within days!”
“Laurie and her team have continued to do great work for my family and friends! Her commitment and drive to get the job done is impressive and I highly recommend!
“Laurie was great throughout the entire process. I've known Laurie for years and had complete confidence that she'd get the job done, and she did. She worked hard and helped us every step of the way.”

My wife and I have four boys so we were concerned it might be difficult with showings and open houses but Laurie sold our house in about a week. Her knowledge of our neighborhood and marketing worked very well. Laurie and her team were in constant contact with us the whole time and walked us through the everything. Closing was a breeze and prompt. Thanks!”
“I own a service related business and am always evaluating the service I receive from others. I'm certain there are plenty of knowledgeable real estate agents however, Laurie certainly stands out as a true professional in her industry.
She is very knowledgeable as well as having many attributes that make her a professional leader in her industry resulting in being very successful in her career.
From the very beginning of working with Laurie it was obvious I made the right choice in an agent to represent my interest. She was very confident on the marketable selling price and the brief time it would likely be on the market. She addressed all my questions and kept me informed throughout the brief process of marketing and selling my home.
I highly recommend Laurie and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Properties for the absolute best experience for your real estate requirements!”
“When beginning our home selling experience, my husband and I were not sure what to expect, as this was a first for us. Laurie guided us every step of the way. We both felt comfortable contacting her with any little thing that crossed our minds and she always answered us quickly and with a smile. Laurie gave us her professional advice multiple times, which allowed us to make the best decisions moving forward, and ultimately helped us sell our home very quickly! We cannot thank Laurie enough for making this process full of adventure and fun every step of the way! If you are even considering selling your home, I would definitely contact Laurie Duepner Real Estate Group!”

“Laurie was extremely fantastic. She found our family of 6 our dream home in record time. We had some challenges as we had to write contingent upon the sale and closing of our current home which wasn't even on the market yet. Laurie worked seamlessly and tirelessly to make sure our home was ready for the market and priced competitively to assure a quick sale. She has an awesome photographer that made our listing stand out compared to others. She sold it for what we wanted to within 7 days of listing and we were able to push up the sale on the home we were purchasing. Laurie was always there, no matter the time of day, to take calls or texts with questions we had. Everything went very smoothly and this was all, in mind, in part of Laurie's work ethic and knowledge of the market. She was incredible and I have referred her to many of my friends and family and she has handled them with the same extreme care she did us. Just so you are aware, be prepared, you will have a friend and realtor for life with Laurie Duepner after your transaction is completed.”
“Laurie truly goes above and beyond for her clients to ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible throughout the entire buying and selling process. We could not have been happier with our experience working with Laurie. I can't recommend her enough!”
“Laurie is incredibly responsive and pro-active. Laurie answered odd questions at odd hours of the day and night. She is the epitome of calm. She does not get too excited, nor too down. It is without hesitation that I would recommend Laurie to any friends, neighbors, colleagues, or acquaintances for their realty needs - be they buying, selling, or both.”
“Laurie worked very for us. She knows what she's doing. She is always available to text or talk about questions or concerns. When you trust someone enough to not read every word of - let's be honest - really tedious documents written in legal lingo, you're in good hands.”
“Laurie is very friendly and professional. She is easily contacted and gets back to you in a timely manner. We were extremely happy with Laurie overall!”
“Laurie did a great job. She was very patient and attentive throughout the home buying process. I hope to not buy another home for some time, but if I do I will use Laurie and I would happy to recommend her to friends, family and colleagues.”
“Laurie is the best there is. She was with us every step of the way even when we were annoying her with our constant questions and requests. She showed us properties until we found our perfect match and then she helped us complete an offer to get it even when there were other offers. She is very knowledgeable and thorough. I am never moving again but if I do I will call Laurie first.”
“Laurie was amazing to work with. She understood my wife and I's needs and helped us every step of the way. I would highly recommend Laurie to anyone looking for their next home purchase because she's quick to respond, active in the search, and made closing a breeze.”
“I was recommended to Laurie from a business associate. When I first met her at the house I was impressed with her confidence and knowledge of the property and geographic area. I presented her with an appraisal and she made the comment that she thought the appraisal was low. She suggested that we raise the listing price because of the current economics of the area. I gave her the reins to do whatever she thought was necessary to get the property sold. I asked her at the time how long she thought it would take to sell the house and she told me she could sell this place within a month; again, the confidence and her professional demeanor was very refreshing to work with. Laurie sold the house within 24 hours. She had 4 buyers in line with bids ready to go. Very Impressive. The next month as we chose someone to sell the house to was exciting to say the least. At every turn Laurie was on top of the business transactions and any time I called her she not only had the answer but was already two steps ahead of me. Even when the Trust attorneys had to be involved on our part I connected her to their office and she worked with their executive staff officer with integrity and professionalism. I received nothing but praise from their office about how effortlessly it was to work with her. During this month my wife and I took a 12 day trip to Europe with full confidence that Laurie had everything under control. The day after we returned I was sitting in the title office with her signing the closing on the house. Her integrity, personal moral values and attention to professionalism and details were an absolute joy to work with. I will recommend her in the future.”
“I want to take a moment to thank Laurie Duepner. On behalf of my wife, my two sets of twins and I, we thank you from the bottom of our heart for selling our home so quickly and finding us our dream home. You are always so courteous, professional and attentive to our family's needs. We appreciate you so much, we don't even know how to begin to thank you! You are the absolute best agent around and I will refer all my friends and family to you!
Thank you so much!
Tom, Molly, Brady, Raegen, Danny and Quinn Lubiewski”
“Great agent. Laurie told us what we needed to do to get on the market and our house sold in 1 day. Couldn't have done it without her.”
“I would recommend Laurie to any of my friends or family. She is very knowledgable. She made us feel like we were her only clients knowing she was very busy with others as well. When it came to any issues, she handled them promptly and professionally. She wasn't happy until we were happy. Her passion for finding families their perfect home is spot on! She is definitely in this field for her clients instead of just for her own career.”
“Laurie is hands down the best realtor out there! She treats her clients like family, going out of her way to make the process as seamless as possible. I've never known a realtor to go above and beyond as much as she does. Our buying and selling both felt easy with Laurie as our realtor. She puts her clients' needs first and it was an absolute dream working with her!!”
“I was reassured by your approach, introduction to YOUR business, your history with friends of mine in similar situations and especially your openness and acceptance of my family, who did not know you. You were immediately a knowledgable, family friend and advisor. We all appreciate that!”
“You always made me feel like I was your most important client. You took the time to get to know me and what I truly wanted in a house. And when I found THE house, you were just as excited as I was!”
“Barbi Blanke worked endlessly keeping us informed during the whole process. With “will problems” and multiple dates for closing, she kept us up-to-date and reassured us that we were moving forward.”
“Barbi is a hard worker and did a great job of taking care of all our needs.
Everyone was friendly and took care of my needs right away.Barbi took the time to listen and know what we were looking for.She then found exactly what we wanted and made everything go smoothly and we got our current house.Things went smoothly and quick and it was Barbi’s help that made that happen.Very satisfied customer.”
“Barbi was patience, understanding and always took initiative. She made me feel like I was her one and only client. If there was a bump in the road she magically calmed me down with her positivity and determination to get to the bottom of things. Look forward to working with her again in 5-10 years.”
“Barbi is the best agent around. She did anything she needed to do to make an impossible deal work. She was very patient, compassionate and knowledgeable about the process. We can't wait to sell our previous home with her!”
“Barbi was a tremendous asset to have during this entire process. Ran into difficulties with the seller and Barbi was always there for us when we had questions or needed something to be pushed on our behalf.
The ultimate professional. Always an extremely pleasant time when connecting with Barbi via phone or in person.”
“Barbi was extremely hardworking and available at all times. We had to move up our closing by months to meet buyers needs, and Barbi stayed on top of all actions and keeping us updated appropriately.
My wife and I really enjoyed having Barbi as part of this hectic and stressful time of selling our first home. We always felt we were her top priority.”
“Barbi went above and beyond and always paid close attention to detail. I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else on my team when I was ready to sell my home.
Barbi was very professional, always prompt with communications, and knowledgeable about current market and surrounding area sales.
Made it a stress free experience with her dedication and expertise.”
“There is nothing but praise about Barbi's handling of the purchase of our home from beginning to end. If needed, there is no question who we will call, and we will recommend her services without hesitation to anyone we know.”
“Couldn't have ask for anyone better.”
“Great And supportive. Went above and beyond!
Answered all questions and super helpful”
“As soon as we contacted Barbi about selling our house, she started working and did not stop until our house was sold and our new house was ours. We appreciate everything she did during the entire process. Our house sold in one day and we got asking price for it. We are very pleased with how both the sale and purchase came out. We could not be happier.”
“Barbi Blanke was outstanding. What made awesome was that no matter what time of the day, she always responded to me in 5 minutes or less. She also made the whole process so easy and was very fast when it came to writing the contract. She truly is amazing and made buying a home so easy and quick! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home because she pays close attention to detail, is fast and efficient, and really listens to her clients.”
“Charles Worsley is amazingly patient. I couldn't be more pleased with the both of them - he and Barbi Blanke. I can't imagine a better team to work with on something so stressful as selling a home. I was a mess through this whole process and they successfully sold my home - for over asking price - even dealing with my many 'freak out' texts after hours. This is how it's supposed to be done.”
“The level of information and service from Barbie was invaluable. She has a real feel for the industry and knows what is best for her clients.
Barbie went above and beyond all my expectations. It was amazing to me to see the difference in how other agents represented their clients compared to Barbie.
I loved having the title company located in the sales office for questions and reference.
When selling my home Barbie advised and pushed for me to take a back up contract. Good thing we did, as the first buyer defaulted and the second buyer worked out even better. Barbie kept me advised on all events, dates, and important terms through the entire contract. What an amazing Proffesional she is!”
“Barbi knew exactly what we were looking for in a new house and was great at getting us a good fair deal on a house!
Barbi was an amazing advocate for my family throughout this process. She was with us at each step of the way and was very accessible. Her knowledge, professionalism, and communication with us was top notch.
Barbi is an amazing person to have on your team when searching for a house. She sent many houses via the Internet and we went and saw a house and feel in love. She was with us each step of the process and answered all of our questions.”
“Wow! Barbi is the best of the best! She handled the sale of the house with ease. She was always accessible and was very professional. She is very friendly and honest with us about the home. She helped tell us how the house needed to get ready for showing.
Everyone that we met at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Properties were polite, energetic, and helpful. Everyone introduced themselves and answered any questions we had.
We are very happy with the selling of our home.
Barbi knew what wanted to move and before we even put the house on the market she had a potential buyer for it.”
“Barbie makes a point of understanding the customers situation and takes a polite professional approach to meet the challenges.”
“Barbi was outstanding in handling our concerns and she was always reliable and easily accessible. Top notch Realtor!!”
“We would recommend Barbi Blanke to all of our friends and family. In fact we have already referred her to a family member who will be closing on a home this week! Barbi brings a high level of customer service to the table, she pays close attention to every detail, and worked very hard to make sure that we got the house we wanted. Simply put, she exceeded our expectations from the very beginning and her desire to please us did not stop until we were moved in. When we told her we were putting our house on the market in Illinois, Barbi drove all the way over to our house to make sure we maximized the value of our home with how it was arranged and decorated even though she was not the agent. After we closed on our new home, she took the time to come over and help us move in and watch our 1 year old so we could focus on moving things in the house. It rained very hard when we were delivering furniture and Barbi even went to get a fan for us so we could dry our mattress and have a dry bed to sleep on the first night in our new home! My wife and I never felt as thought Barbi had her own interest in mind and at no point did we ever feel like she was using sales tactics to try and push us in one direction or another. She stayed focused on us and what we wanted and went above and beyond to ensure we were happy. This experience of working with Barbi and Berkshire Hathaway was an extremely pleasant one and we would recommend going with Barbi and BH to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Barbi is a rockstar at what she does and we have no doubt she will go far in the industry. Thanks for everything and please feel free to have anyone interested in using your service contact us directly as a reference.”
“Barbi was amazing throughout the entire experience. She listened to my preferences and found the perfect place. She is so dedicated to finding her buyer's something that makes them happy. She even went door to door and left fliers in communities that I was interested in. Her quick communication was impressive from scheduling showings through the contract and getting to closing. She was very professional throughout the whole process even though I know her personally. As a first time homeowner that experienced some bumps in the process, I couldn't have found a better person to be working with.”
“I recently had the pleasure of working with Barbi Blanke when selling my home. From day 1, Barbi was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for my home to provide a better staging view for any potential purchasers. To state the least she motivated both my fiance an myself to have our home showtime ready!
Within the first 6 hours of being listed, we had two offers and accepted the one who offered 6k over our asking price! All throughout the negotiations and closing, Barbi was there quickly handling any matters that may have arisen.
She stood by our side and handled all of the ups and downs during the purchasing process. Her cat like reactions to any and all new listings has help land a contract on the house of our dreams!!
Thank you Barbi for you excellent work
Matt & Katie”
“Excellent communication and worked extremely hard. Very responsive and helpful. Highly recommended.”
“Barbi Blanke was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finsh during our home buying experience. Barbi will have her clients best interest at heart and will go to bat for them. In past relocations we have been sold out by our agents who were just ensuring they captured their sale. Barbi went to bat for us during the contract negotiation and the inspection and as a result we saved thousands of dollars on our home purchase.
When I think about what someone should want in a realtor I truly think it should all come down to will your agent put your needs above all else. All the major companies have similar technology that will ensure you can find the right home, but what sets Barbi apart is what she will do for you once you have found the right home. in my mind, at the end of the day your realtor should be committed to you and that should be your top priority when searching for an agent.”
