Anna M.

Pat LaDeur was a pleasure to work with on the sale of our home, from initial meeting to the close.

She is professional, courteous, congenial, knowledgeable and efficient. She worked around the details of our sale in a highly efficient manner and provided transparency to the process to ensure we were clear on our steps through the sale journey. Thanks Pat!

John B.

John & Pat took such good care of us and made the buying process enjoyable.

My Fiancé and I have opposite schedules and they made themselves available around what worked best for us! Great people - will definitely use them again in the future.

David W

My dear friend recommended we use John and Pat to sell and purchase our homes.

I had requested appraisal from 2 others realtors and found them to be pushy and did not answer my phone calls. I was very happy to meet John and Pat found them to be great listeners and often gave us realistic input to guide us thru the process. I would highly recommend using John and Pat as they will gladly help you navigate thru the buying and selling process.

John and Pat La Deur were wonderful agents to work with.

We had a tight schedule as we were living in a different city while relocating to Chicago. The spent multiple days with us touring houses and scheduling showings. Everything was extremely organized, which we really appreciated. They returned calls and emails in a timely manner and helped us in finding a great home before it hit the market! We can't thank them enough and would definitely use them again in the future!

Michelle R.

We felt very comfortable with every step of our purchase and sale of old house.

They always explained options very clearly so we could make the best decisions.


Very professional and very honest.

You can have a truthful conversation On either end of your deal. On selling what area you can improve your Home for prospective buyers. Why is your home worth the listing price. On buy side what is available and what are alternatives. Especially in highly competitive areas.

Bob D.

I would highly recommend John and Pat LaDeur.

They sold our house for the best possible price they could get. They really looked at our house and all the work we did to it to get our pricing others we looked at just ran comps and wanted to list us lower. John and Pat got us $20K more then anyone else was willing to list. I refer them to anyone who asks.

S. Boys

Patricia and John LaDeur were awesome to work with.

Their local real estate knowledge and experience were so helpful in preparing us for the sale of our home. They were such a breath of fresh air during a stressful time. Whenever we had questions or concerns, they responded so promptly. They truly go above and beyond for their clients. We highly recommend them to all of our family and friends, or to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

Jeff & Debby

Pat and John have been wonderful, attentive agents through 3 property sales.

We love them both and would always recommend them to anyone in the area!! We are over the moon with the quick sale of our house due to our decluttering and staging, and the excellent photographs they provided us.

Tricia M.

Pat is a very professional, great personality and knows her business.

I would highly recommend her to anyone to sell their home. You also should give the same testimonial to her husband John who is just as professional with a great personality and knows his business. THEY ARE A GREAT TEAM

Christine & Michael D.

John and Pat maximized the interest in and viewings of our property through their marketing campaign.

Once an offer was received they were expert negotiators and went above and beyond to close the deal. I would absolutely use them again.

Matt G.

Patricia LaDeur and her husband John had great ideas to make my property attractive to potential buyers.

They were professionals, polite and accessible through the whole process of selling my property. The listing for the property showed off all of the assets of my home, and the professional photos of the property helped attract attention. Considering that my property was listed and sold during a pandemic and economic slowdown, and that I moved 800 miles away during it all, Patricia and John went above and beyond to make me comfortable and keep me informed through the entire process.

Ronald S.

I would like to share the incredible experience I had working with John and Pat LaDeur from Berkshire Hathaway Home Services.

The first thing that comes to mind is the PROFESSIONALISM that these two showed in every aspect of the sale of my home. They advised me every step of the way in order to prepare my property to be shown in the best way to attract the most traffic. They brought in an incredible photographer to show the home online and were receptive to re-taking a photo that I felt didn't show a room as well as it could have been. They are the pro's but they LISTENED to me. I was so comfortable working with them because of this. Of course, most of the time I did as they advised, and let me tell you, it worked. Having the place only on the market for a few weeks, I received multiple offers and I was able to sell the property quickly, which John and Pat knew was important as I had already purchased a new home and this property was vacant and would cost me a mortgage payment every month. They were phenomenal in every way. They listened to what I needed in my particular situation and adjusted their strategy to my needs. I can not thank them enough for the incredible experience I had while selling my home, and if I had to do it all again, in a heartbeat I will go back to John and Pat.

David E.

John and Pat were so very helpful and very informative.

We had planned to sell be owner. We had them come out just to talk and get some numbers. We were so impressed with their excellent and professionalism we decided to list with them. They gave us a breakdown of fees. They advised us what to list our home for. It was listed and sold within two days. They were just fantastic! They totally took care of us. No hassles! The final payoff just about as the figures we had initially received. We just ca not say enough for what John and Pat did.

Penni M.

Great agent to work with.

Linda M.

Pat and John treated me like family.

I felt that they understood my needs and provided effective and efficient service. They go above and beyond!

Pamela Q.

There is no one better than John and Pat LaDeur.

I have purchased multiple homes through them, and literally recommended them to my family and friends, whom in turn, have bought and sold several homes throughout the years. Buying a home is the most expensive purchase you are going to make in your entire life, why wouldn't you want the best to help you get exactly what you want.

Corey H.

Pat LaDeur, she is a wonderful person and broker, I would and have recommended her to friends who are thinking of selling their homes in the future.

Pat and John are the best out there!

Pat's been our "family realtor" for years, helping my grandparents buy their house to selling it decades later. Now my parents, myself, and all siblings have worked with Pat and John for our own homes. My fiancé and I are first time buyers. Pat and John are so knowledgeable, you can rest assured that you're not missing anything and have all the resources at your fingertips with them representing you. Highly recommend!

Francesca L

John and Pat are fantastic.

I had a hard time nailing down just what I wanted, and John was a great advocate in helping me find the right home. You can tell that John takes great joy in this work, they have a personal touch, and treat one of the most important decisions you'll ever make with the respect it deserves.

Pat and John's marketing campaign is second to none.

The brochure they produced is flawless. They know the market, and helped price it for a sale after only 8 days. Pat was my agent when I bought this home 31 years ago, and now is helping me sell it again.

Ron L.

John and Pat Ladeur are wonderful agents that care about your needs like their own!

They went above and beyond for us over the past 11 years that we have known them. They were on vacation and still answered our calls! We are so grateful for their expertise, professionalism, and and advice in the buying and selling of our dream home. We can’t not recommend them enough!

Matthew H.

John and Pat were an absolute godsend.

They sold my parents their home 25 years ago and have helped my family with a couple of sales over the years as well, so I knew they were the right team to call when my husband and I were looking to buy our first house. It took us just a few weeks from starting the process up to putting in our offer. They knew we were working against the clock as our rental lease was set to expire about 2 months after we started looking. We saw around 15 homes in total and the whole process went very smoothly. John really took the time to understand what we were looking for in a home. He took all of our feedback into consideration and made some great suggestions. Both John and Pat were super flexible when it came time to schedule showings and we appreciated both of their perspectives on each of the houses we saw. During the showings, Pat was the expert at helping us visualize how the spaces could be used. She has an eagle eye for potential problems as well. John was easy to reach via phone, text, and email. He was happy to answer all of our questions and provide referrals for whatever we needed. When we found our home, it seemed like he was almost as excited as we were! The LaDeurs are the definition of professionals. They never missed a beat and it was truly a pleasure working with them. Plus, as a husband and wife team they are just the sweetest! Would absolutely recommend working with these two.

Norah C.

John and Pat LaDeur are the best.

The client comes first. They are very knowledgeable about local real estate. Many times throughout the buying process I asked them for their guidance. Their experience is impressive. They helped us sell my Mothers house as well as my Mother in-laws house. They told us how to stage the house to make it look best. When we got to the offer stage their input was invaluable. They guided us through the negotiation process on how much to counter offer. If we ever need to sell and buy again you can be sure they will be the first agents we will call.

Paul S

John and Pat were so wonderful!

They helped us find our perfect first starter home and we really appreciate all their time and effort with everything! It was a great experience working with them through this stressful process. Thank you again for everything! We love our new home!

Nicolle & Jake

Pat was very helpful in aspects of the transaction, from describing what I was looking to the selection 0f a mortgage lender and attorney.

Bruce H.

John and Pat were able to stage our home and photograph it so wonderfully that it sold in just a matter of days.

I have highly recommended them to family and friends who have had the same wonderful result.

Julie S.

John and Pat are great across the board.

Their trustworthiness is the reason I continue to work with them.

Chris G.

Pat and John were a referral.

Pat assisted us as we moved from Columbus, Ohio to Barrington. We were under an incredible time crunch. Pat stepped to the plate and helped us narrow our search to homes we spend all day Saturday touring, then went back to our favorites Sunday, and made an offer Sunday afternoon. This was on MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. Now I don't suggest you follow in our footsteps so these nice people can enjoy a holiday weekend, but I shared as an example of the lengths they're willing to go to help out clients. They're great & super nice people! Thanks!

Steve F

John and Pat LaDeur we not only a wonderful honest realtor couple but they are also compassionate.

They take the time to get to know what you like and don't try to rush you into the first home you show interest in. I highly recommend this duo for all your buying and selling needs.

Ashley J.

John and Pat are a wonderful team, I highly recommend.

They were very patient with my struggles in preparing to sell a home that had been wrecked by renters. They had helpful advice and went above and beyond other realtors I've used in the area helping me sell the home while I lived out of town. They were always on top of the ball when we needed anything, especially frequent contractor access in the beginning. If I ever move back to the area Pat and John are going to be my first call!

Daniel F.

Let’s just say that my perception of what a realtor will do for the client was thrown out on its ear.

Pat did a wonderful job of listening to our needs and partnering with us throughout the renovation and Sale process. Cannot emphasize enough the combination of “dead on” advice about the marketplace and a dedication to do what was needed to get a quality offer on our home. Just a great partnering experience. Everything topic discussed was open and honest which produced the result we desired, a much needed quick sale of our home. Just a great partnering experience. Everything topic discussed was open and honest which produced the result we desired, a much needed quick sale of our home. A customer service level and dedication to the client that sets the bar for excellence. The sale of our home was not a slam dunk. From our initial meetings with Pat and John it was evident we needed to change our mindset about bringing the house up to date and provide as close to a “turn key” house as possible. Pat and John’s advice was dead on. The steps we took to makeover the kitchen and part of the main level transformed the house. Every detail was examined in terms of paint scheme, choice of flooring, kitchen countertops and all the hardware in the house (i.e. door and closet handles, kitchen sink, faucet and fixtures). Not a small task, a rather large project that was completed in an unbelievable 4-5 weeks. All scoped and discussed within our budget constraints (as we were challenged with two mortgage payments at the time). A number of our neighbors were amazed at the transformation, giving us a competitive home in our price range that stood out from the crowd. The signed offer came within 8 weeks of our house on the market, a fantastic result given that our home was previously on the market for six months with NO offers, then taken off the market during the Holidays and the time allotted for the rejuvenation. Just an unbelievable effort of not only selling the house but partnering with us to get our home in “Sale” shape. Simply a great customer experience all around.

Ken S

Choosing Pat and John LaDeur as our realtors was one of the best decisions we could have ever made!

Personable, professional, with great attention to our needs, these two were perfect! Would recommend them in a heartbeat!

Bob M

I would highly recommend John and Pat LaDeur.

They help stay on top of all the new listing and allowed me to find my new home and win the bid on my second choice. This market is crazy it is nice knowing I had them helping through it. I have used them in the past to sell my home, find rentals. My Son has used them. I refer them to anyone who asks. I feel they are the best. So glad I found them all those years ago.

S Boys

We could not have been happier with Pat and John.

We will recommend them enthusiastically to anyone buying or selling in the area.

Melissa H.

John and Pat have been my realtors since 2004 since I moved from Miami to Chicago.

John also helped me place my home for rent 14 years later. It got rented within 3 days. The professional photos he took of my townhome were spectacular. The customer service of John and Pat is something I have never seen before. This is a ideal example of how they care for their customers. For the past 14 years since I purchased my home with them, every year for the past 14 years, there has been a beautiful present at my door. It is incredible, that someone you had a negotiation with 14 years ago is so invested in showing you that they care that every year they both take the time to find different and original beautiful gifts very thoughtfully chosen just to let me know how thankful they are. I have been in the customer service industry for the past 20 years and this is by far my most important lesson of caring and showing your customer that you care and for that reason alone, I think John and Pat are so incredible in helping you find the right home for you, selling your home, or helping you list it for rent. Thank you John and Pat for caring so much and I want to take the time to write this review to say I am thankful for both of you. You both are amazing human beings.

Karen S.

Pat LaDeur offered excellent insight into the possibilities of each property seen.

Helped me see the pros and cons of each home. Pat was always available to talk with by phone. She was very patient with me and took time to explain how to use and complete the forms necessary for purchase. I would highly recommend Pat to friends and family for help in finding a new home.
