  • Highly likely to recommend Monika's level of service is superior, and she's truly focused on her customers - and making them happy. I can't say I've had a whole lot of experience in dealing with realtors, but I can say I'd definitely recommend Monika to anyone looking to buy/sell in the Cincinnati area!

  • Monika is the best real estate agent we have ever used!! (And we've used four in the past 2 yrs.- so we have perspective). Her negotiation skills are awesome, her calm demeanor helps everybody stay relaxed during what typically is a stressful time, and her ability to create teamwork in a scenario which can be quite adversarial- is truly remarkable. She helps everyone get along well and want to work together! How is that possible?! She is very proactive and she actively smooths out wrinkles before they even become even a hint of an issue. Her favorite phrase is "no problem- we'll get it handled". She's great with the paperwork and all the logistics. Monika is extremely competent, she knows the market very well, she's got a great eye, and is a bullseye on sense of price. You will be thrilled with the experience of having Monika as your agent!! And that is not often the case. Truly, truly, truly. I cannot recommend her more highly!!

  • Highly likely to recommend I worked with Monika and her assistant Beth Brink and they did a great job for me and provided me with valuable information on the buying trends and sales trends and demographics for the West Chester area of Cincinnati. They knew the marketplace, the demographics, the buying patterns by season, as well as the price ranges and the various processes involved once you acquired a contract--I was very pleased and happy with the service they provided and the experience they brought to the table--I would highly recommend Monika and Beth if you are buying or selling a house.

  • Highly likely to recommend Monika is THE BEST real estate agent we've ever worked with! We've owned 4 homes, and we've purchased and sold a home with Monika. She really knows her stuff, and her ability to predict the market and negotiate with buyers is AMAZING! Her warm personality and down-to-earth style make even stressful home buying or selling situations seem pleasant.

  • Highly likely to recommend Monika was extremely helpful in getting our house ready for sale. We sold our house in 5 days and received almost asking price. The pictures taken were very professional featuring the best selling features of the house. She was very strategic on when to put the house on sale and asking price for it to get buyers' attention. She guided us through the whole selling process so we did not have any surprises.

  • Highly likely to recommend Monika is the best realtor if you are looking to buy a home. When I first started my search for the perfect place, my husband and I were looking without a realtor. We talked to a few at the beginning, but felt pressured and decided we would just visit properties we liked online. One of the properties we visited (after looking at 20-30 and meeting some 20 realtors) was a short sale of Monika's. After meeting her, we decided we had it all wrong. Monika isn't pushy and doesn't try to get a quick sale. She got to know us and provided us with properties that were right for us. We are young and were buying our first home and looked at sooooo many properties with her. I think many realtors would have gotten tired after the first 10 or 20, but she didn't. She wanted us to get the RIGHT house. And we did! When it came to putting in offers and finalizing paperwork, she was there every step of the way. Even after closing, I still hear from her frequently.

  • Highly likely to recommend Monika helped me sell my father's house after he passed. She did a phenomenal job. The house went on the market on a Friday, we had a full price offer that night (with 6 back up offers within 24 hours) and we were able close 17 days later. She is very professional and knowledgeable able the market. She is compassionate and very responsive to your needs! We plan to use her services again in the near future and I would highly recommend Monika for your next real estate venture!!

  • Highly likely to recommend We were new to the area and Monika responded to a request I made on zillow. She was the only agent to set up appointments to look at houses right away. She is a very hard worker! She also has an assistant/associate that will work with you if Monika is at a closing, etc. They are an awesome team. I've never worked with anyone so responsive. I saw about 30 homes in just over a month, before we finally found the one we purchased. Monika never seemed to be bothered or annoyed that I wanted to see so many homes. She'd just say, "Well, we find the right home for you." And we did :D

  • Highly likely to recommend Monika was wonderful to deal with. She is patient, knowledgeable and willing to help anyway she can before, during and after the buying process. She is a great choice for anyone, particularly for first-time home buyers. Monika will be our choice in the future for any real estate needs.

  • Highly likely to recommend We used Monika during the purchase of our first home. Monika was amazing and we 100% recommend her. Monika was very open and honest. Buying your first home is overwhelming to say the least, but Monika acknowledged that and was supportive and very informative with the whole process. She kept encouraging us to take it a step at a time and that she was in our corner. We felt confident with her as our realtor. She has a lot of knowledge with regards to the market. She was very open with price and wasn’t pushy with increasing our offers. She negotiated for us when she could (the area we were looking at and the timing wasn’t great, as it is a sellers market). She told us several times that we have to be comfortable with the mortgage. She was very patient with us along the way. If she wasn’t able to show us a house, she had one of her assistants show us. This was really nice and convenient because houses were selling so quickly! We will definitely use her as our realtor again in the future!

  • Highly likely to recommend I had the pleasure of working with Monika to purchase my house in northern Cincinnati. I am an extremely conscientious buyer who tried several agents and could not connect to any of them, they are either too "pushy" or don't help at all. Monika on the other hand is extremely knowledgeable of the market situation and really gives her opinion without biasing the buyer. She is also an agent who does the job out of passion and you can clearly see that she has fun doing it. I wish I had money to buy another house just so I could go around with her looking again, that was actually fun.I surely recommend her for anyone looking, if you are a local or if you don't know anything about the region, she will help you.

  • Highly likely to recommend Monika and her team helped my wife and I to buy our first home. Throughout the process they were amazing in staying in contact with us to keep us informed, providing plenty of properties for us to consider that met our range/budget and navigating negotiations and closing. I would recommend their team to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

  • Highly likely to recommend Monika, Kim and Beth were such a huge help and blessing through every step of this process.

We also utilized all of lenders and inspectors they recommended because they made everything easy, clear and we felt supported.

  • Highly likely to recommend Monika is outstanding at what she does and very knowledgeable about the Cincinnati area and home-buying process. She ensures every detail is taken care of perfectly and has a wide-ranging list of experts and contacts that can assist you along the process. Monika helped me:- Secure a 3.125% 15-year loan with her mortgage lending contacts
    - Ensure all of the repairs to the home were completed prior to signing
    - Connected me with a carpet expert to have new carpet installed my home within 24 hours!
    - Connected me with contractors to quickly and affordably make some of the immediate renovations done right away. You can't go wrong with Monika. And…I am…her "favorite client."

  • Highly likely to recommend If you are wanting to sell, it is a VERY important endeavor. I had not found a realtor that I felt was up to the challenge of selling my investment. Like many aspects of life you have the ideal and then you have to settle at some point. My ideal was someone that was passionate, knowledgeable, no bs, compassionate, positive, "on my team" ready to bat for me, and a solid representative of my home. Accidentally I met Monika and it was like what almost never happens in life: the ideal, plus! Monika is more than I could have ever expected or wished for in a realtor. She is THE diamond in the rough and she is sensational. She is honest, real and very enjoyable to work with. If you want the ideal, choose her. She is on fire and will blow away your expectations.

  • Highly likely to recommend Monika saved the day as we needed to buy fast and get moved in to our new home before school started. She and her team showed us multiple homes in one day and we were moved within a month! Monika was quick to respond to all of our questions and concerns.

  • Highly likely to recommend Everyone thought that we were taking a big risk when we decided to sell two homes and buy a new one in this difficult market. However, we had an ace in the hole with our realtor selection. Monika helped us navigate the waters, price the homes properly, and bang out relatively quick sales. 3 months or so later we were moving into our new home and had both previous homes sold. The bottom line is Monika is the best! Hire her. Listen to her. If you do it will get done quickly!

  • Monika was excellent to deal with throughout all facets of the process. She was a Real Estate expert when needed. A negotiator when needed. A counselor when needed. Most importantly, she applied pressure to move the process along when needed. Hands down she showed me that she was on my team at all times. My home set on the market for a few months with several showings. I listed my home just before prime time and there was intense adverse weather for approximately the first 30 days it was listed, minimizing the number of people that were out looking for new homes, therefore minimizing the number of showings. Even then I was getting a few showings weekly. After discussing with her at length, we made the difficult decision to drop the price in order to broaden the market as we needed to quickly sell this home. Once we dropped the price, my home was under contract in less than 7 days. We are listing another home with Monika, and once that sells we will be using her expertise to purchase another. We look forward to our continued success in our partnership with Monika.

  • Highly likely to recommend Monika listed and SOLD our home in less than two weeks!!! She is extremely knowledgeable and provided exceptional service throughout. She shielded us from the complexity of selling our home which made it easier for us to focus on relocating to a new city. We highly recommend her and her team to anyone looking to buy/sell real estate.

  • Highly likely to recommend Monika and her assistant Michella are very professional and have excellent negotiation skills! My husband and I moved from Columbus, Ohio and began our house hunt two years ago. Monika never gave up on us and always kept in contact. She was determined to find us the perfect home with all the things we wanted. Things happen for a reason. I am so thankful we got hooked up with Monika. We could have chose from many other agents but I am positive they would not have made our experience as wonderful and special as she has. She never pressured us or rushed us into making a decision. She wanted to be sure that we were 100% sure of our decision. This October we finally found the home of our dreams! We are first time home buyers and were clueless how everything worked. Monika did all the hard work and all we had to do was sit back and relax. I recommend her and her assistant to all my friends and family who are looking to sell or buy a home. If you are new to the house hunting and need an agent use Monika. I promise you will not regret it! Good luck and happy house hunting!

  • Highly likely to recommend Monika sold our home that we had lived in for 15 yrs in Colerain township. She had sold other homes in my neighborhood so we met her from watching her success in our neighborhood.Word of mouth always seems to speak volumes to me. She also helped us purchase a home in Loveland. She is very knowledgeable about many Cincinnati neighborhoods as we were considering a few different areas. She was relaxed and very easy to work with. She has a very strong marketing background and understand the housing market in this area. It was very reassuring to me and my family that she was pricing our house competitively. When buying our property she also had great insights on items we hadn't thought about. If you are looking for a successful, relaxed, realtor Monika is the real deal!P. Berryman
