Helaine Cohen Broker, Team Lead
Helaine has been consistently recognized among the Top 1% of brokers in Illinois as well as being a top broker in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network. With a BSBA degree in Marketing from Boston University and an MBA from Babson College, Helaine enjoyed a successful sales career in the technology industry before combining all her passions into her real estate career. While she has worked in both real estate auction marketing and commercial investment sales, her primary focus is residential sales.
Every morning, Helaine reminds herself of this simple phrase – “to attract positive things in your life, start by giving off positive energy.” The power of feeling gratitude allows happiness, meaning and abundance into her life, which ultimately drives her business success.
Helaine is extremely efficient and capable of tailoring property searches to your needs. Regardless the scenario, her greatest strength is that she always advocates for her clients, regardless of anyone else's gain. You can trust her to represent your interests at every point of the transaction process - for me, that was really important since I was managing this property sale from out of state with a very busy work schedule.Arpan, Chicago
Helaine Cohen was my agent when I wanted to buy a house in Chicago recently. I have bought houses in the past and have worked with may agents in the past. I can say with out hesitation that she is the best in terms of her knowledge of the filed, her ability to quickly grasp the customer's needs and tastes, expertise in evaluating properties and negotiating on behalf of he client, non-intrusive yet quick responsiveness and establishing trust with her client. She and her assistant Linsey went out of their way not only to find the right house in short order but also to help the whole process and move in. Recommend highly!James
Out of the 5-6 brokers we started to work with, we selected Helaine and are working with her exclusively since. Helaine was able to understand very quickly our targets and setup several visits perfectly aligned with our needs. Helaine was also able to suggest a lawyer and lender we are satisfied with. We already bought 2 units in the loop and are searching for more.Severine
Helaine was awesome on helping us bying our first home. She guided us on every step of the way. I am very happy to have her as our realtor. In the future if we decide to buy another unit, I would choose her again for sure. Thanks Helaine for making our purchase easier.Lara
Helaine took the time to understand my personality and my needs for the purchase of my first property. Her involvement in the searching and buying process from start to finish was very attentive and enjoyable. We were able to see enough properties to be thorough, but not drag out the processBrian
Helaine Cohen is extremely hard-working, punctual, and a supportive ally in every aspect! She quickly gets what her clients want, even if the clients don't know how to articulate it themselves. It was a pleasure working with her, and we would not hesitate to recommend her to our friends!Sibel, Chicago
Helaine was extremely honest and helpful during the touring process. Without her recommendation, I would never have viewed the unit I ended up purchasing. She really has a great eye for layouts in the city and a keen understanding of what I was looking for."Carla, Chicago
Helaine found the perfect condo for me and made it an enjoyable experience. After reviewing my wish list , she worked tirelessly to find several matches and then negotiated a great price for me. She was very professional and hard working.Bruce
Helaine was fabulous throughout the entire process. We were just looking at the market for a possible future purchase when she contacted us. After meeting my wife and I at a home that didn't appeal to us, we discussed our wants and needs and Helaine presented us with several other options. 3500 North Lake Shore Drive fit the bill, and the rest is history. She also suggested an excellent attorney to work with the Co-Ops, we would highly refer Helaine to our friends who might be in the market in the future. She knows the business!!!! If you are looking for a true professional, she is "The Best".James, Lake Forest
