Testimonials of Clients who have worked with Celeste Barr, Keller Williams Success Realty


Carter and Diane H.

We worked with Celeste Barr to both buy & sell a house.  She is always upbeat, positive & encouraging.  She responds to requests, questions & concerns almost immediately. We always felt she had our best interest at heart.  She was very patient as we looked at many houses & never tried to sell us just a house; she wanted it to be the "right" house & always pointed out the negatives of a house as well as the positives.  When selling our house, she used the traditional tools (signs, open houses, MLS listing) as well as some very creative & innovative internet & social media approaches to maximize exposure.  For the interior of our house, she was quite imaginative in showcasing its highlights & features.  We would definitely work with her again.

Celeste was great!  She gave us great advice and tools for a fast and successful sale.  I am so thankful our paths crossed, We couldn't have asked for a better Realtor.   We will definitely look her up the next time we sell.


Mike and Kathy S.

Celeste was very attentive during our listing. We felt she listened to our concerns and did things that she knew were important to us, such as open houses. She continuously came up with new ideas to help with the sale of our home. Our house was in an area where turn-over is slower. We trusted her enough that we had her come with us on buying our new condo. We feel she is honest and will tell you the facts of what you are facing while being supportive. We never felt left alone.


Kent S. and Jing (Julie) C.

My husband and I cannot say enough how lucky we were to have Celeste as our realtor, who is truly the BEST, BEST, BEST!! We are first time home buyers and have no clue about the market and the house buying details. Celeste took great care of us, she went greatly above and beyond our expectation and gave us lots and lots of great and invaluable advice. She was not only a Realtor, but also a good friend and an extremely knowledgeable consultant. Additionally, she was amazingly nice, patient and hard-working. I haven’t seen anyone else who cares about their clients as much as Celeste does. I would strongly recommend Celeste, she really cares about you, takes your issue as her own issue, does everything she can to make sure you make the best decision, she would be your best choice and make your house buying experience a very, very pleasant journey!

Celeste is the ultimate professional. She goes above and beyond what you would expect from a realtor with her marketing skills, use of social media, data analysis, and most importantly her open style of communication. You won’t find a more dedicated and honest person than Celeste Barr.

I am an Allstate Insurance agent and was very pleased with Celeste’s attention to detail and understanding of our needs.  I will/would highly recommend her!  She is also great with follow-ups.


Lee and Dana P.
As a first-time home seller, my wife and I did not have a clue about the presentation, staging or marketing of a home.  Celeste excels in that area and was full of outside-the-box ideas to make our home stand out amongst the many on the market.

Her attention to detail and outstanding organizational skills were evident throughout the process.  Thank you, Celeste!


Patty B.

Again, thank you again for all you have done.  You were a tremendous help and it was amazing that there were only minor obstacles in the selling and closing due to the professional way you handled the whole transaction.

Celeste, I would highly recommend you to anyone that needs help buying and selling in the residential real estate market.  Your follow-up is excellent and your professionalism is superb.  Take care and keep in touch.


Thomas and Stacey V.
Celeste helped us find and purchase our new home and marketed our ‘old’ residence so well, it sold in just over 30 days.  Our old home was expertly shown on the internet…we got a lot of traffic through and left others unsold.

For our purchase, we took about 8 months and viewed hundreds of listings but Celeste never rushed us or seemed impatient because she knew we were looking for our dream home… and we found it!

Thanks Celeste

I am happily settled into my new condo and I want to tell you how much I appreciate everything you have done for me.  My condo was on the market with another Realtor (a personal friend) for three months.  I was a bit frustrated that it was not selling and my friend understood that I needed to move on.  I called you, Celeste, because you helped me sell my home in Niles, IL in 1992 and each Christimas I would receive a greeting from you.  Each time I received that, it reminded me of how skillfully you negotiated that deal.  After I called you things moved quickly!

You accurately saw what needed to be done in order to showcase my home.  Because of your advice, I rented a storage unit and cleared things out of my place.  I would have had to pack these things anyway.  When this was done you began showing my place AND we got a qualified buyer within the first week!  I really don’t think I would have managed without you.

I will recommend you to any of my family and friends without hesitation because I have come to know the level of your personal commitment, professionalism and trustworthiness.  You have my deepest appreciation.


Karla C.
I truly had no idea how blessed I would be when I got the recommendation from a business acquaintance to contact you as my potential real estate agent!  Now, I am so excited to pass this blessing on to other through this note of recommendation.  From the first meeting we had regarding the sale of my condo, I could see that your professional personality, your excitement, dedication, experience, commitment, attention to detail and follow-through would exceed all of my expectations.  In addition, I had sentimental and emotional attachments to the condo I was selling and you were so gentle and understanding of my needs.  But most of all, I knew I could trust you.  Choosing you as my agent was a GREAT decision and one I will absolutely repeat if the situation ever arises again.

It is with the highest regard and recommendation that I submit this note.  I only hope that I can affect someone else’s decision to choose you as their agent — it will be one of the best choices they can make.  I welcome the opportunity to speak with any potential client should they wish to contact me.


Steve L.
We appreciate all her efforts in selling our home!  We found Celeste to be dedicated, honest, professional and committed in every stage of our real estate transaction process!  It was truly a pleasure to work with Celeste and we hope to do business with her again in the future!


Norm and Dorothy S.
Norman and I are pleased to have the opportunity to comment on her services to us.  (Celeste)…began with a very comprehensive and informative conference to plan strategy of our sale.  Her pricing of the house was excellent and realistic for the market.  The brochure and Virtual Tour she prepared illustrated our home to good advantage.  Her help at closing was expert and her follow-up to see if we needed anything in transition was an added value to us.

We can recommend Celeste Barr without any reservations!


Len and Suzi Z.
Celeste helped us sell our home in Buffalo Grove during the difficult real estate market of late 2007. Her attention to detail, support in showing our home, and follow up were especially helpful in closing at a price that was beneficial to us.

We strongly recommend Celeste Barr to be your Realtor!


Tracey L., Atty
I recently worked with Celeste and I found her to be extremely helpful in making sure that all deadlines were addressed, all minor issues were resolved and communication between all parties were made easy.  I found that Celeste was very personable and made it easy for the parties to discuss things with her.  I find it more relaxing to work with someone that always has a smile or her face and Celeste was that person.


Rob and Lanice H.
This one sheet of paper just isn’t enough room to say all the great things that she did for us.  But, since this is what I have to work with, I’ll do my best to be brief.  Celeste is truly THE BEST in her field!  She has unimaginable patience.  She uses every tool at her disposal to help her clients reach their goal.  She is open, honest, willing to educate and provides useful suggestions.  Most of all, she loves what she does and she cares about the happiness of her clients.

I can’t wait to work with Celeste again!


Steve and Michelle J.
We recently worked with Celeste and were impressed by her customer service skills with us as clients.  She always made us feel like we were her ‘only’ client.  We were very pleased with our buying of our new home as well.  Celeste was excellent handling situations in “multiple” offers and guided us to getting our beautiful home!

Thank you Celeste!


Mark and Anila B.
We recently worked with Celeste and she was fantastic!  It took us a year and a half to sell our home (in order to buy) and Celeste never doubted, was always upbeat and invested tremendous time in helping us to eventually make a purchase.

Great persistence!  Great sales work ethic!  GO CELESTE!


Jean F.
We recently worked with Celeste and found her to be a wonderful caring person.  She tried everything she could to show our house to it’s best advantage and let me know everything she was doing by phone and in writing.  Very happy with her performance.  We are now friends!  (Barrington, IL)


Norma H.
Hi Celeste – Hope everything is going well for you inspite of the economy.  I have finally gotten settled (spent lots of money) in decorating) and am content.  – Sold a townhome in the Woodlands of Fiore, Buffalo Grove.


Ron and Patty S.
On behalf of my parents, Patti and myself we would like to thank you for your assistance in selling both Patti’s and my parent’s condo.

During both transactions you handled everything in a timely and professional manner.  We were both very impressed with your internet marketing capabilities as well as your follow-up with all prospective leads.   Also, your little decorating touches really helped my parents place show so much better.

Thanks again for all of your help and look forward to working with you again when the need arises.

Best regards, Ron S.
