"MaryEllen has served as a trusted advisor for my family’s real estate investments since 2012. MaryEllen’s approach is effective because it marries three critical qualities, which include responsiveness, market knowledge, and results-orientation. MaryEllen assisted in helping my family identify, bid, and close on our primary residence in 2013 and her market knowledge led us to the right property in the right neighborhood within our budget. MaryEllen also assisted in helping my family grow its investment property portfolio in 2015 and played a critical role in negotiating with the seller. MaryEllen comes highly recommended." -- Peter W. Washington
"MaryEllen has been our realtor since 2007, when she helped us move from Ohio into a fantastic apartment on the New East Side. A couple years later she put us in our first and only home in Chicago, a gorgeous loft in the South Loop.
Throughout the years she has been there to answer questions about our condo, neighborhood, or just the market in general. Most recently, she came to the rescue after we received a curiously low re-fi appraisal. Regarding the latter, I shot her a panicky email from out of the blue late on a Friday night. By Saturday afternoon, we had an arsenal of information to refute the bad information in the appraisal.
Bottom line, she is always there for us.
Her knowledge of the Chicago area real estate market is unmatched, she is tireless in her efforts to put you in the place you are looking for, and is completely adaptable to your changing needs and timeline. On top of that, she’s a genuinely warm and kind person.
We feel we have a REALTOR ® (and friend) for life." -- Dave and Elaine Mikesell
“Your professional experience did really IMPRESS me! You surely know the market and the strategy! It is a wonderful feeling to know that the real estate professionals that help you are people that you can really trust!...with the professional help MaryEllen and The Kuehl Group provides, I am confident that I have made the right decision! It’s been a pleasure working with you!” – Emily Chou
“I have been an attorney for over 20 years and I want you to know that it is always a joy to work with The Kuehl Group, Inc. MaryEllen Kuehl and The Kuehl Group, Inc. demonstrate a dedication to their clients that is unmatched. Too often real estate brokers get the signature on the contract and then think their job is done. On the other hand, this is when The Kuehl Group demonstrates that they are a cut above…a satisfied purchaser or seller comes from a team effort by the real estate broker, attorney, and in the case of a purchaser, the mortgage broker. MaryEllen Kuehl understands everyone’s role and does a great job of managing the team and staying on top of every detail from contract signing, disclosures, inspections, loan approval to closing. I suspect that clients will never know how tremendous The Kuehl Group, Inc. is until they make the mistake of trying someone else. Thank you again for doing such a great job and making my job of handling the legal side of the transaction easier.” - Kevin Salam, Attorney at Law
"MaryEllen Kuehl possessed the confidence, intelligence, and work ethic that enabled us get the best deal for our home purchase. She was tenacious in her approach towards helping us find a desirable, affordable home. It was our first time buying a home and MaryEllen made the entire process much easier and smoother than we had anticipated. We appreciated and valued having someone in our corner--looking out for our interests--when making such an important investment." - Dr. Sam Abbas
"In a challenging market at a higher price point, The Kuehl Group used multiple marketing angles and savvy pitch-making to secure a stable tenant and a long term lease. This experience has made proposition for an investment property rather attractive - even from across the country." -Marty S.
"It is always a pleasure working with MaryEllen Kuehl. We originally bought our Arlington Heights home with MaryEllen and had a very broad search. MaryEllen helped us narrow it down through her great website and knowledge of the Chicago suburbs. She was very informative and paid attention to every detail of our request. In the end she helped us find a great house in a great neighborhood. During the negotiations she led us with confidence and skill. As we moved into contract MaryEllen provided invaluable resources such as inspector and attorney recommendations. She tediously reviewed the contract and all attorney communications, providing insight and recommendations all the way through the closing.
A few years later, MaryEllen and The Kuehl Group sold our home with exceptional care, marketing skill and attention to detail. In spite of the fact that the Chicagoland housing market had been through a serious decline during the years we owned it, MaryEllen sold our home for top dollar in record time and unlike many other sellers in the area, we were positioned to buy our next home, our dream and forever home we hope, with MaryEllen.
We would recommend MaryEllen to anyone looking to buy or sell a home - thanks MaryEllen!" - Scott and Becky Becker
“My Husband & I used MaryEllen as our real estate agent last year when we were searching for a home. She was very quick to respond to my initial inquiry of services. She is extremely knowledgeable in real estate, set up appointments, gave us great advice, drove us to appointments, walked us through each step and provided much needed support to us as we were 1st time home buyers. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone looking to either sell or buy a home.” - Unity Ostercamp
“When I was looking to relocate to the city a couple of years ago, I contacted Mary Ellen and the Kuehl Group to help me find a new residence. She was extremely knowledgable of the areas that I was interested in as well as being able to offer alternative neighborhoods that I had not originally considered. She found me the perfect location and I have been extremely happy since I moved in two and a half years ago. Mary Ellen will be my agent when I look to change residence again and I will recommend her highly when I am speaking with anyone that is considering a new home. She and everyone in her agency are highly trained professionals that I have the highest confidence in recommending.”

"I was very impressed by MaryEllen Kuehl's service and have recommended her to friends, colleagues, and my company's HR department who regularly handles relocations. She quickly sold my property in a difficult market at a price that was more than I bought it for less than 2 years earlier. As a seller living overseas, she handled the process seamlessly and professionally, updated me frequently, and arranged for all the formalities. A big thank you to her as I could not be happier!" - David Taylor, Mckinsey & Company
