Client Experiences


"Pat and Vera Purcell helped us find our new home in Lake Forest. They are a dynamic duo that gave us a thorough overview of the real estate market in Lake Forest and neighboring communities. They listened, made good use of our time, connected us with people and places, and even picked up our son from school after we were officially moved in and needed help in a pinch. We enjoyed the many times we were with this gracious couple and the care and effort they put into working hard on behalf of our best interest" - Rebecca G.

"Talk about having your finger on the pulse, Pat and Vera know this exclusive market better than anyone. We can’t say enough about their knowledge, integrity, and positive energy. They’re the best in the business!" - Justin and Jillian

 "We love Vera and Pat! They showed us multiple homes and helped us find a perfect fit. They worked with our schedules making it less stressful to find our dream home. Their experience gives them tremendous insight which helped us make the right decisions. Excellent experience!" -  Monika and Laniel 

"Pat and Vera are very knowledgeable of the market, available when we needed them, patient and personable. We received the proper guidance we needed throughout the home buying process, and are excited about our new home! We will definitely recommend them to friends and family" - Tim S.

"Thanks to the Purcells we sold our Lake Forest home in one day during the middle of the great recession. They are a full-time real estate duo that not only cares about selling your home but also cares about you! We highly recommend them for either your sale or purchase of your home" - Cissie and Bud C.

"The Purcells made buying our first home a wonderful experience. Their knowledge of the Lake Forest market is second to none. Pat and Vera were very patient with us and helped us find a perfect home that even exceeded our expectations." 

- Brian and Juliane   

"The Purcells walked us through the entire home buying experience. We were not in a rush to buy a home and they never once pressured us and allowed us to take our time. Once we found the right house, the purchase would not have finalized without their guidance." - Whitney and Jacob
