Testimonials | Beyond Properties Realty



Erica helped us purchase our home in Oak Park and now that we are thinking about selling, she is the only realtor we even considered. She did a great job in 2010 and she has only gotten more experienced and knowledgeable since then. She is both a great neighbor and a great realtor.

Erica was fantastic and made my first home purchase smooth and easy! She recommended great people from a reputable home inspector to an amazing real estate lawyer and an amazing lender. The people she partnered with made this a zero-stress purchase.

Erica was fantastic. She gave us honest feedback regarding what areas to focus on in Oak Park. She responded to our emails and calls immediately. She was very helpful in negotiating and recommended an attorney that really stood behind our requests. We would recommend her without question.

Erica sold my condo for higher than I expected. I was very happy with the ease and professionalism of her process. This gave me the confidence I needed at such a stressful time. There are a variety of tools that she uses to market which I think helped. We had an issue with the condo’s property management company but she stayed positive and calm throughout. She is proactive and shows enthusiasm for her work. I highly recommend her!

We met Erica and her wonderful team at Beyond Properties when we found ourselves urgently looking for a home in Oak Park. Erica helped us through the process of buying a house that was in the middle of being rehabbed. She was professional, responsive, and really knows her stuff! We would absolutely recommend Erica as a real estate agent!

We had a very difficult situation and Erica responded in a superior fashion to every situation. Her knowledge, responsiveness, helpfulness, and willingness to go beyond just finding you a house set her apart from any real estate person I have ever worked with. She is truly exceptional.

There are A LOT of realtors in Oak Park and we’ve worked with many of them. I can say confidently that you can’t do better than Erica. She was incredibly responsive (which many realtors aren’t in my experience), knowledgeable about the market, and goes the extra mile.

Erica did a great job showing us houses, negotiating for us and recommending contractors. She is very knowledgeable, easy to work with and nice. We highly recommend her!

I’ve worked with Erica to buy and sell homes in Oak Park on 2 separate occasions. She was fantastic to work with, understood the market exceptionally well, was responsive, and in the end provided a great experience during what is typically a very hectic and emotional time. I’d recommend Erica to anyone interested in buying or selling their home.

Erica helped us find our beautiful bungalow home! Erica’s expertise as a real estate professional definitely helped us to find a home that met our needs in the community we love!

Our experience with Erica was amazing! Her attention to detail, market knowledge and professional attitude is unmatched. We would highly recommend reaching out to Erica for any real estate needs you may have.

I strongly recommend Erica Cuneen. She is incredibly knowledgeable on real estate in Oak Park and surrounding OP/Chicago areas and listens to your needs and works diligently to address them. Her knowledge of housing also extends to renovation so she was able to provide context for me if I liked a house but thought it might need some additional work; that allowed me to gauge my choices in a smart and insightful way. Her overall expertise also made her a fabulous negotiator. Lastly, Erica is patient, fun, and respectful which just makes the whole experience better as moving can be very stressful, especially since my move was a cross country one. Erica helped me from October 2015-January 2016

I would recommend Erica Cuneen and Beyond Properties to anyone looking for a realtor in the near western suburbs. We utilized her services to buy our first home, sell that home 4 years later and buy our current home. She is wonderful to work with – so friendly, knowledgeable and fun!

Erica helped me purchase my first home in early 2015 and the whole process went through smoothly. She is very professional, friendly, and customer-oriented. I would highly recommend Erica to anyone who is buying or selling a home.

My wife and I moved to Oak Park from Texas. Erica knew the market very well, made us feel welcome, and helped us find a great home! She anticipated all of our needs and questions. The process was smooth and seamless. She’s an absolute professional and great person as well.

Erica was delightful. She was recommended to us by a colleague of mine who said she was one of the best realtors in the Chicagoland area. Erica did not disappoint. From the beginning, she knew exactly what needed to be done to sell our home, including minor remodeling and staging. Erica was a pro at dealing with some unusual circumstances and was always very responsive. We had attempted to sell our home earlier in the year with no success, but thanks to Erica we closed 2 months after putting it on the market the second time – with a deal with which we were satisfied. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in Oak Park.

Erica is a consumate professional who puts people before the process, yet knows the process well. I cannot comment on her negotiating skills because we’ve only worked together on the client services end of the deal, serving the needs of home buyers and sellers. I would highly recommend Erica to anyone looking for a Realtor who goes the extra mile to empathize with clients’ needs and concerns, yet keeps the ball moving and gets the job done!

decided to become a first homebuyer around this time last year (Dec 2016). Of course, I didn’t have a clue as to what to expect of the homebuying process. Martha Murphy with Beyond Properties in Oak Park seemed to have fallen right out of the sky for me. I talked with a couple other realtors before I met Martha, but something just didn’t sit right with me and the others. They seemed to make the process feel like a scary business transaction. After talking with Martha I felt a little more at ease like I was going through the homebuying journey with someone who was interested in my needs and wants and I felt the compassion she has for the work she does. Even when she could have given up and let me go on my way without closing on my condo she didn’t. Martha knew I really wanted to close on this condo and she put me in contact with all the right people to make that happen! I can truly say I had a great team thanks to Martha Murphy. I look forward to working with her again in the future and I don’t hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.


We are so lucky that we found Martha Murphy of Beyond Properties. My Son Scott, was a first­time homebuyer with no experience or knowledge about how to find the right place. Me and Jose wanted my son Scott to had a smooth and good experience in the process of buying his first house. In this case (A condominium), and we were so fortunate to found Martha, She had a great knowledge of the surrounding area and knew exactly what my son was looking for. Martha was very responsive and great suggestions for Condominiums to view base on what my Son was looking for. She was always available to answer our questions, and when we needed her to be. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, patience and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. My son said “Martha treat us like family” we enjoyed the time we spend with her on the “house hunting tour” we would highly recommended Martha Murphy and Beyond properties.

My husband and I just had moved to Chicago and wanted to find a place to make our home and we looked online via Zillow at some great homes in the area and got in touch with Martha and from the very beginning we hit it off, she was so friendly and very knowledgeable with the area being she is from  Chicago. She made our experience unforgettable and much easier. I highly recommend her and the entire Beyond Properties faculty. All are wonderful people!
