"Ron was AWESOME to work with! He knew the area well and was very proactive in marketing the house. It was in need of some updating, but Ron was able to virtually stage the house to show its potential. The end result was a very quick sale in excess of our asking price. We had 7 offers to choose from - what a great position to be in!"

"Special thanks to The Pickard Group for helping us buy our first rental property. From the beginning we knew they were an experienced team that would provide us with great guidance. They took care of all the details and made sure there were no surprises. Well, the only surprise was that everything went as planned, and we now own our first rental property! These are real estate professionals who you can trust and be confident they always have your best interests in mind. M. & A. Seth"

"We have a 30+ years relationship with the Pickard Group. Susan sold us our condo 30 years ago and Ron sold our property in September, 2023. In that length of time, we never considered utilizing another realtor. The Pickard Group kept in touch with us through mailings and birthday wishes all those years. This demonstrated their commitment to customer service. During this recent transaction Ron did a marvelous job of guiding us through selling process. From our initial consultation to closing Ron made sure we were aware of where we stood and calmed us down through several “rough” patches and was a strong advocate for us with the lender and mortgage broker. He was always available for a phone call or text with a response within minutes. We whole heartly recommend the Pickard group for any real estate transaction you may be considering."

"To all reading this review..... this is a HIGHLY recommend!!I honestly cannot say enough nice things about Ron Pickard, and his effective & professional work. My sister found herself in a very difficult situation both personally, and with the ownership of a condo requiring TLC. We enlisted Ron to help us with this sale and market positioning. He did so with extreme care and outstanding professionalism. The results speak for themselves as our unit sold within 72 hours of the listing. I found Ron Pickard all the way from Maryland - because I was dialing realtors until someone picked up the phone. Ron - with all of his offices, clients, and current listings - cared enough about the incoming calls to pick up his phone directly!! No screening, no red tape, just a live heart-to-heart conversation that resulted in action and a quick sale. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!"

"Ron is absolutely wonderful to work with. It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. He really cares about his clients.We worked with him back in 2014 for our first home buying, now for second home we could not think about anyone else other than Ron. Ron always provides incredible amount of information/suggestions on every step of home buying process. He easily stepped into our shoes to understood what we are looking for and our needs in the home. He was always available to provide us with the information that I needed (or didn’t need, but needed for the sake of my sanity) – every decision that I made, small or big, mattered to him. Not only did we feel like I had all the information I need to make those decisions, but we felt like I was in good hands.All in all, Ron still shares excitement and feels more like a trusted friend than just another real estate agent. We couldn’t be more happy with the service we received from him and will definitely recommend them to everyone we know!"

"Ron and Family were recommended to me from a Friend who have used them in the past. I was very pleased with Ron and how he took care of the sale of my property. I had already moved to Florida and he handled everything. The sale was very quick with multiple offers and he talked me through the process and we selected the best offer. Closing was remote and very smooth. I would highly recommend them to any of my friends in the Chicagoland area."

"Ron and his team did a great job helping us to sell our aunt's home. We live out of state and Ron was great with communication during every step of the home selling process. He constantly kept us updated on the progress of the sale and greatly assisted with finding local companies for donations, estate sale companies and businesses to assist with disposal of many household items. I would strongly recommend Ron and his team for any future real estate needs."

"We have worked with Ron and Sue since we bought our first townhome back in 1993. They are extremely hardworking, intelligent and willing to go the extra mile ! But they excelled in coaching us to prepare our house and to bring us up to speed with the current market conditions. Our home sale went smoothly exclusively through their hard work. I couldn’t recommend better realtors than the Pickard family !"

"I cannot express enough gratitude and admiration for the exceptional real estate services provided by The Pickard Group. From the moment we began working together on the sale, it was evident that their professionalism, expertise, and commitment to excellence would ensure a successful outcome. Ron, Sue and David truly went above and beyond to create a seamless and rewarding selling experience.First and foremost, I must commend Ron for his outstanding choice of when to list. Ron's astute market analysis and deep understanding of the real estate trends in our area allowed us to capitalize on the perfect market. Furthermore, the listing they created was nothing short of remarkable. Every detail was meticulously crafted to showcase the unique features and highlights of the property. The stunning photographs, digital staging, engaging descriptions, and well-crafted virtual tour truly captured the home's essence and beauty. It was a true masterpiece that caught the attention of potential buyers, making them eager to schedule showings. Throughout the contract process, Ron consistently demonstrated his exceptional negotiation skills. He expertly managed interactions with potential buyers and agents, ensuring that my best interests were always at the forefront. His knowledge of the market allowed us to evaluate offers accurately and skillfully navigate counter offers to secure the best possible outcome. I felt confident and reassured knowing that Ron was representing me with the utmost professionalism and expertise. As a result of his hard work and strategic planning we attracted an impressive number of potential buyers the very first weekend and the home was under contract a few days later.Moreover, their communication and responsiveness were outstanding. They promptly provided updates, keeping me informed through every step of the selling process. Their attention to detail and ability to address any concerns or questions made the process stress-free.As such, I cannot recommend Ron, Sue and David Pickard highly enough. To sum up, strategic timing, pre-listing advice, remarkable advertising, and exceptional negotiation skills resulted in a successful sale that exceeded my expectations. From start to finish their professionalism, expertise, and unwavering dedication to my satisfaction is why they are outstanding real estate professionals. Should I have any future real estate needs, I will undoubtedly turn to The Pickards without hesitation. So should you. Bill Y. - Happy seller!"

"To say the Pickard family went above and beyond is an understatement. I have never felt more comfortable and confindent in our choice to use Ron, David and Sue to help us during our home buying/selling journey. We were crammed in a 1 bedroom condo with 2 kids and multiple cats and needed out fast, but couldn't go the traditional route of buying and selling at the same time. We had been told previously there was no way to buy unless we move out of our condo and sell first. Ron was able to present us with another option of using a bridge loan, and thankfully we were approved and able to buy a home first and then fix up the condo to sell after we moved out. When I say they did EVERYTHING they could to get us into our forever home and sell the condo FAST, they did exaclty that and MORE. The expertise, care and attention to detail is top notch and I will recommend this family of realtors to everyone I know. If you or someone you know is looking to buy or sell, call them today. You won't be disappoint! Thank you so much, Ron, David and Sue! We are eternally grately for your kindness and expert guidance through this stressful, yet exciting journey."
