 Donna Pelletier dmpelletier@comcast.net 630-673-0800
Dear Donna,

Let me quickly write how much I enjoyed having you help me buying my house. As it was my first house, I clearly needed a lot of hand-holding and calm understanding of the difficulties of the decision process from you. You mastered this superbly and I really felt very well looked after.

We went through many house showings and spent quite some time together. You always patiently and calmly helped me when going through houses and had always the right information at hand. I was very nervous when we made our offers, especially when I found the house I wanted in the end. But you made everything go very smoothly. The closing also was very easy. The recommendation of Claude as my mortgage broker helped tremendously.

I am very happy in my first house right now and would like to thank you for all the help. I for sure will recommend you to all my friends and colleagues if they are buying or selling a house.

Thanks again,

 Dan Rushton dannyrush@comcast.net 630-965-7030

Dear Dan,
I just got to say that this was quite a hard sale but you came through it with flying colors. I was so impressed with how you handled yourself and how you respectively dealt with others. You were knowledgeable and stayed in contact with me even when things didn't look like they would happen. I was SO impressed with your work that you can count on me to call you if I ever need to buy or sell property again. Thanks so much for helping us to make our dreams come true in our new home. You are the best!

Dear Kettley Realtors,

Thank you for providing the tickets to the Kane County Cougars baseball game.

It was great fun. All of the youth enjoyed the game. The two youngest youth at Mooseheart, ages 1 and a half and 2, were able to each catch a ball thrown into the stands before the game. It was the first time each of the youth in our home had ever been to a baseball game and they all loved it. They keep asking if we are going to baseball every night now!

The youth in Allegheny home are too young to write yet, so they have colored pictures for you as a thank you.

Generosity is the reason that Mooseheart is able to exist; generosity like yours is extra special!

Thank you again for your generosity and thoughtfulness. We will always remember it.

Sincerely, Chirsty LeMaster, Family Teacher Allegheny Home


 Ginny Luedtke ginnyluedtke@yahoo.com 630-913-1223

My Wife and I couldn't have been more pleased with Ginny. I don't think we could have had anyone more knowledgeable or friendly than she was. From start to finish Ginny was right there. We had almost settled for one home but Ginny wasn't sure if that was the home best suited for us. We kept looking until we found where we live today. The moment we walked through the door our home took our breath away. So Ginny helped us get out of our first contract so we could purchase our current home. Ginny didn't make me feel as if I was dealing with a realtor, but more like a close friend or family member. When I'm in the market to buy or sell another home I won't deal with anyone other then Ginny

The Browns

Ginny made buying and selling our home easy. She knew just what we wanted and showed us many great houses. We loved working with her!

The Schulzes

Our Realtor, Ginny Luedtke, has been working with us since 1996. We purchased and sold six houses through her and each time Ginny has been EXCEPTIONAL from start to finish. Ginny has a true "Touch of Class" that we haven't seen with anyone else, we love her. We will continue to recommend her to our family and friends. She truly took the stress out of the entire process

The Beckers

My husband and I met Ginny when we were first married (1988) and inexperienced with Real Estate. Ginny guided us through the process with patience and integrity. As our Real Estate needs have changed over the years we continue to value her knowledge and honesty. She is a Pleasure to work with.

The Blakes

Ginny has been our Realtor for the purchase and sale of 2 homes. We have never been anything but satisfied with how hard she has worked for us. If the time comes and, we need the services of a good Realtor, Ginny will be that Realtor

The Garretts

I remember the night we bought our home like it was yesterday. Actually it was November, 1993. We were so exhausted that day. Ginny strapped my 2-1/2 year old daughter in the back of her car and off we went. We must have seen 20 homes that day but Ginny knew exactly what we were looking for and we didn't stop until we saw everything. Although it has been some time since, we do know that Ginny is the Realtor we will trust to sell our home or to buy a new one. Ginny understands what clients want and she delivers.

The Urbans

I purchased my first home in 1981 through Ginny Luedtke and have been pleased with her service through the years. Later when I knew her better she confessed I was her 1st confirmed sale. What a shock that was since it was so smooth and easy and I didn't know anything about buying or selling real estate. Over the years Ginny has not only been my Realtor but a dear friend. Everyone I have referred to her has been throughly pleased. Way to go Ginny!

 Patti O'Malley  cdj3610@comcast.net  630 715-1403

I would highly recommend Patti OMalley as a Real Estate Agent. Lets just say she saved my but from the fire! I was on the verge of foreclosure and bankruptcy when I hired Patti as my last resort to sell my house that I could no longer afford. She swooped in and worked fiercely to get my house sold before the banks deadline! And she sold it with a month to spare! It turned out to be a short sale, but that was because the housing market took a nose dive and I needed to sell at the wrong time. But regardless, she saved me from foreclosure! If anyone asks me to refer a great Realtor, my answer is always call Patti OMalley. She'll work for you and she is honest and open and caring. And she listens to what you need and want! Thank you Patti !



Denise M. Brown

GailCoyle  Client Buyer
Denise is very knowledgeable of the entire area. She took us to see several houses. We discovered problem areas in some of the homes and Denise was very informative and experienced when we asked questions about foundations, flooring, and costs to fix such things. She listened to our wish list and found us a house right away. Then she negotiated us a great price. We couldn't be happier.  (Wed, Jan 9, 2014)
Mike Dorr Client, Buyer
This is the second time having Denise help us find a home. We just closed on our dream home and could not be happier! Denise is caring, very knowledgable and a true professional in what she does. She really understood our family's needs and even went above and beyond making sure that everything went smoothly and on time. Buying an REO property can be challenging but having Denise on our side made it painless and we closed in less then 45 days! I will recommend Denise to all my family, friends and colleagues.  (Wed, Jan 8, 2014)
Natalie Client, Seller
Denise was very easy to work with in selling our home. She sold it with in a week with multiple offers! She did very well at pricing it and we got an offer that exceeded our expectations! She always responded quickly to any questions. She is very knowledgeable on the current market and area. My husband and I really enjoyed working with Denise and highly reccommend her. Thank you Denise!   (Fri, Dec 27, 2013)
Jwazzle08 Client, Buyer
Denise was very helpful in my whole house buying process. I have a couple of friends that bought homes about a year ago that were never informed about important additions to ask for while making an offer on a home (such as a home warranty). I am very glad that Denise was around to help me stay well informed while going through this entire process.  (Mon, Dec 16, 2013)
Katreena Ingram Helped me buy a home
My husband and I were searching for our first home. We sent out a few emails on the listings we were interested in, and Denise was one of the first ones we inquired with. She responded VERY quickly. The others took days to get back to us. She was very considerate with what we were looking for and gave us extra information. She set up showings for the listings we liked with her daughter and son in law (who are also wonderful!). On our first day of looking, we fell in love with our new home, and the process couldn't have been easier on us being first time home buyers... She is thorough and efficient, and worked with us late at night to get the contracts going. She also recommended a great mortgage broker, attorney and inspector. She has everything anyone would need when buying a new home. We really appreciate all her work.   (Thu, Dec 12, 2013)
Lynn Goins Client, Buyer
I trust Denise completely to look out for my interests. She handles negotiations, legal documents, and proceedings in a most professional manner. She is quick to answer questions and/or find answers to my questions.   (Wed, Oct 30, 2013)
Minglun Qian Client, Renter
I contacted Denise for my house renting in Sept. I knew it's not good time for looking for tenant after summer. But Denise has a very good knowledge on local market and helped to set rental price appropriately. She respects the concerns from the owner and tries not to compromise the rental owner's searching constraints throughout the process. She is very responsive to my emails and communicates very well and clearly with us. I also believe she is very reputable realtor among the local realtors as she got lots of inquiries from other realtors representing the tenants. In the end, she was able to find a tenant for me within 5 weeks. Considering this is after summer time, I am very happy with her as my agent. Thanks, Denise!  (Fri, Oct 25, 2013)
Anna Uher Client, Seller
Excellent Responsiveness and knowledge. Very helpful with all kinds of situations to get whatever needs to get done, done!!! Had a very stressful situation that need special attention.

Denise is a great Realtor to work with! Was very helpful throughtout a recent purchase transaction that was a little more involved than most of them. I would highly recommend her services. Great job, Denise!    (Tue, Oct 8, 2013)
Susan Brown Client, Seller
Denise is the "go to guy" when selling your home. She knows her job, digs in, and gets the job done. Denise communicates well with answers to any questions that pop up and we experienced a smooth transition in the selling of our home. Thanks, Denise    (Mon, Sep 30, 2013)
Jeremy Fullone Client, Renter
Denise has thorough knowledge of the local market and the experience in rental units. Easy to work with and more than happy to answer questions and talk through the process. My property was on the market for no more than 2 weeks and I already have a signed lease.   (Thu, Sep 26, 2013)
Maggie McMaster Client, Renter
Denise assisted me on a rental property in Montgomery when I was looking for a townhome. I started my search on September 17th and by September 21st, I had a place thanks to Denise. She gathered all my information, ran the necessary credit report and background check very quickly and presented me to the landlord. She also negotiated an early move in date by 7 days. I could not be more impressed by her motivation to get the job done and her expertise in the area. I would recommend Denise Brown/Kettley Realtors to anyone I hear is in need of a realtor. Very impressive!    (Thu, Sep 26, 2013)
Denise was great to work with. She never gave up on helping us find the right home after we thought we never would. She is very accommodating with her time and always would return calls/texts very promptly. If you need a realtor who will work tirelessly until after the closing, she is the one!    (Thu, Sep 5, 2013)
We asked Denise to assist us in selling our home in Yorkville, IL. The first characteristic that impressed us about Denise was her level of preparation during our first meeting. Denise had extensive knowledge about the real estate in the Kendal County area and she presented us with the history of current home purchases in detail. During our home selling process Denise was flexible in her schedule to meet our changing request and responded quickly to our inquiries. We would recommend Denise to home owners seeking a knowledgeable and responsible realtor who encompasses a genuine care for her clients.    (Mon, Aug 12, 2013)

Denise was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful in selling our house in a very short time. She was always available to answer any questions we had and worked with us from long distance when we were living out of state. She is very experienced and professional and we enjoyed working with her. We highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying. 
(Wed, Aug 7, 2013)
Jake Rutherford Client, Buyer
Denise worked diligently with us negotiating with the seller to help us close in a very short time frame. She was very responsive at all hours of the day and was always willing to go the extra mile to make sure everyone was on the same page.
Overall she was a pleasure to work with and her experience as a realtor showed!    (Sat, Jul 27, 2013)
Craig Costa Client, Seller
Denise did a great job selling our home and working with us in finding a new one. One day after the sign went up we had an offer in. She was detailed and responsive throughout the entire process. I would definitely use Denise again and would recommend her to anyone!    (Tue, Jul 2, 2013)
Rickie Wilhelm Client, Seller
Denise's handling of the sale of my home was wonderful. She answered all my questions promptly, kept me updated on all showings and paperwork. I would highly recommend her. Very professional. My home sold in less than 2 weeks.   (Tue, May 14, 2013)
Ernie Stumbo Client, Seller
I recently went through Denise Brown to sell my house. I am not really sure how she did it but one day after the for sale sign went up in my yard I was signing a contract. She even got more for my house than I expecting. I understand that she has been in the business for over 20 years and it really shows. Denise is a great communicator with excellent people skills. I would highly recommend using her services if you are thinking about selling your house.   (Wed, May 8, 2013)
Tom Koziol Client, Seller
I was struggling to keep my home and instead of forclosure I talked to Denise who told me about short selling. she was very helpful and told me how long it would take to sell even in a struggling market. I was extremely surprised when it sold sooner than she told me. I for one would call upon Denise if I every am in the market in her area for a home. tom

Aggie Castrogiovanni Client, Buyer
Denise was a recommendation from a friend of mine who has also worked with her in the recent past. After how much she loved working with her I called Denise when I needed help finding a home. I can say that from the start I was very impressed. I have worked with many realtors in the past being in the industry myself and I was so pleased to find that Denise was not only extremely professional but also caring about my needs. I never felt pressured or rushed. I always knew that MY best interest mattered to her. With the market ever-changing I felt Denise had the knowledge and the experience to make sure I was making the right decision. I listened to her advice and she was there every step of the process. I will absolutely use her services in the future and recommend her to family, friends and colleagues.    (Wed, May 1, 2013)
Peggy Iobbi Client, Buyer
Denise does not quit until the job is done. She is proactive and has all the right contacts and knows what she is doing. I thought she was being a little pushy at getting everydone right away because I am not familiar with the housing industry but then it all came together and I am very happy that she was able to help me purchase my home and I love it. She was honest and up front about everything. She always met me on time and made it convenient for me.   (Wed, May 1, 2013)
Michael Makuta Client, Seller
Denise, was very helpful in helping us set a listing price. Negotiating the price of our home. And aiding us in the closing process since we were unable to attend the closing since we already moved almost two hours away from our home. She aided us in finding an attorney also. I would recommend Denise to sell your home and also in purchasing your next home.
(Wed, Apr 17, 2013)
Katie Ruppel Client, Buyer
Denise went above and beyond to work with me and be accommodating to needs and requests. She was extremely knowledgable and very helpful. Quick to be respnsive to questions and when home was found stayed on top of things to get the sale through as fast as possible.   (Wed, Apr 17, 2013)
Gail Grossgut Client, Buyer
Denise is a very professional and knowledgeable realtor who has assisted me in selecting good tenants for my apartments for many years. She also has been very prompt in responding to my questions and inquiries about various properties for sale. She has good insight and experience in evaluating real estate listings that may fit my needs, and she provides me with valuable information to help me through the selection process. I recommend her for both purchasing and listing a property.   (Tue, Mar 26, 2013)
Joyce Jablonski Client, Buyer
Denise has helped my son buy a house less than a year ago and is now in the process of helping my daughter. She is excellent at her job. I believe after my experience with er helping my son that I would trust her to buy a house for me. She has a great instinct on what people would like. The home my son bought was one that Denise begged them to see for two months and they kept saying no they didnt want to move to that area. When they finally went and scene it they fell in love with it. Denise kept telling me that they would love it and she was right.

We have used Denise for many years. She has always pointed us in the right direction. Helped us with schools for the kids. Denise always gets back to you when ever you call or text her. We would recomend her to anyone. Denise has become more of a friend/family then just our realtor.

Ryan Graves Client, Buyer
Denise helped me sell my townhouse and buy a new house. She walked me through each step and took care of everything. Definitely one of the easiest people i have ever worked with. She is excellent at negotiating and gets the job done quickly. I would highly recommend her to anyone.  (Mon, Mar 25, 2013)
Jamie Metcalf Client, Seller
Denise goes above and beyond to make sure your home buying or selling experience is as stress-free as possible. In late 2011, my husband and I were relocating and had a very short time frame to sell our house in an extremely poor market. Denise did everything in her power to get prospective buyers into the house. We had two different buyers make an offer and sign the paperwork but both backed out and Denise made us feel as much at ease as possible, considering we were already moved out and making dual house payments. Ultimately, we ended up closing a week before our buyout offer expired from my company, and it was all due to Denise's diligence and hard work.   (Mon, Mar 25, 2013)
marvcresson Client, Buyer
I have been working with Denise Brown for better than 8 months looking for the right house. She has taken every opportunity to recommend, gather information, keep me informed and look at more than a dozen houses with me. She takes every precaution to assure you are getting the right house for you at the right price through gathering comps quickly and effectively negotiating with other parties. She has many contacts within the home buying/selling process which enables you to move quickly throughout the whole process from listing to closing. Her communications skills are prompt, detailed and expedient!! She takes her career seriously and is extremely experience in the realty world.

I will most definitely use her again and highly recommend her to all family and friends!

barbie.j.miller Client, Buyer
I was connected with Denise by indicating that I was interested in a property that I found online. I was very early in the house buying process and was not connected with a realtor yet. Denise contacted me back within the same day to provide me information about the property and questioned if I was working with a realtor. Since I was not, Denise and I communicated back and forth regarding what I was looking for and within days she sent me information on multiple listings around the area for me to consider. While I probably wasn't the easiest client to work with because I was very particular on the location and type of house with a tight price range, Denise was absolutely fantastic and worked with me to find the perfect place to fit my needs. She met me numerous times on weekends to look at properties, she would meet me within the same day even on different occasions when I found something I wanted to see quickly and would even drive out to meet me on my lunch break from work if I wanted to look at a property again. She was flexible, understanding and truly took the time to get to know what I wanted and she worked hard to make sure that we found the perfect place. When it came time to finding the perfect property she helped me through the entire process from explaining each component of all of the contracts and paperwork. She also connected me with a lawyer for the closing, had references for inspectors etc. Without a doubt I would highly recommend Denise to anyone looking to buy or rent a property. In fact, family members of mine who have met Denise also have said that they would use her in the future.    (Fri, Feb 1, 2013)
rebecca.serevino Client, Renter
I have worked with Denise for about a month, looking for a rental proeprty for my girls and I. She came highly recommended from a friend. About three weeks into our search, Denise found us the perfect place. She was wonderful to work with, very consistant, profesional, and most of all compassionate and hard working. She found us exactly what we were looing for. We couldn't be happier!

Dear MS. Ebersohl,

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your very competent and professional services in regard to our real estate transactions.

We recently purchased a condominium unit in Yorkville, IL and you helped us to search for the prefect property which would fulfill our needs.  So many units, as you remember, required a "live-in" owner, a requirement which we are not able to meet at moment because of work and not being quite retired yet.  You never gave up and notified us when the right "fit" for us came on the market.

The closing was easy in large part thanks to you.

Afterward, you also helped us in regard to renting the condo unit, which would have been difficult for us to do on our own since we live about an hour drive away.

We would certainly recommend your services to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent property in the far west suburban area of Chicago.  We have worked with many realtors in the past who don't seem to care about their work, never returning calls, not being very knowledgeable, etc. But when you didn't know an answer, you made it your job to find out.  It was a pleasure working with you.  We felt that we were in very capable hands.

Best regards and continued success,

Mark Manczko

Natalie Brummel - Natalie was clearly our advocate from the first conversation through the day of closing. She was open with us about suggestions and recommendations to help prepare our house for market. Her knowledge of Yorkville area real estate was invaluable in listing our home for the right price and enabled us to sign a contract only days after going live on the MLS. We would definitely recommend Kettley Realtors and Natalie Brummel as a real estate agent who will be very knowledgeable, professional, honest and responsive. Thank you Natalie! Paul & Sandy Longust

We just bought a home with Nadine Johnson. Can I say? Personal service, personal service, personal service! She is so knowledgeable, responsive and professional. Her experience is top notch and she is one of the hardest working people I know. She was with us every step of the way and made house hunting so much less stressful: she is AMAZING!

- Tracey and Jim

Amee Nelson is an extraordinary realtor and an incredible human being! She assisted me in selling an inherited property in Sheridan recently while I reside hours away in Iowa City, Iowa. She went above and beyond on EVERY level. Her expertise, professionalism, knowledge, dedication, loyalty, efficiency, availability, exceptional work ethic, and kindness exceeded all of my expectations! She is a dynamo!!! I have complete and total trust in this beautiful woman to meet ALL of your real estate needs...as she did mine. I highly recommend Amee and Kettley Realtors!!! She gets an A++ in my book!

- Julie Donahue

I would absolutely recommend Denise. I had read other user's reviews online and ultimately decided to use her as my realtor as a result. Now my review will add to the growing list off great reviews. She was communicative throughout the process and responsive to any questions I had throughout the process. As I was a first time seller, I had plenty of newbie questions but felt at ease and comfortable asking any of those questions to her. Should I need to sell again in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to give Denise a call in the future.

- 05/06/2017 - chanz01

Denise has been great to work with and is very knowledgeable in the field. I was most impressed with her quick and consistent follow ups with everyone involved in the home buying process. She was always checking on the status of things and made sure everything was going as planned. She was available at any time to answer our calls/texts/emails very quickly. When we were looking at homes, it was a very fast moving market and Denise was always available to get us in the houses we wanted to see right away. She has been a great help and we are glad to have her as our realtor!

- 05/19/2017 - saraly1224

Denise helped us sell our 3rd house a few years back. We knew we wanted to use her to represent us in buying our 4th house. Her knowledge of the industry and her willingness to 'go the extra mile' for us in the past made her the most logical choice.
