Ilene is a fantastic realtor! She took into consideration everything we needed to sell our house but also took the time to truly listen! I highly recommend her. We moved out to AZ in 2019 and bought our house with her in 2020 to just now sell it again! The most knowledgeable and professional realtor I’ve worked with!
This is our third time using Ilene and we are so happy that we did. She came prepared with recent comp and market information that helped set us up for success, including a quick sale of our most recent home. Ilene is friendly and hard-working, and it’s clear she doesn’t stop until she has given it her best. With her experience in Maricopa County and network, it was evident that we could trust Ilene’s advice. She made it a fairly easy process and was in constant communication with us as we navigated open houses, private showings, and ultimately connected us with the right buyer. Thanks to her organization and ability to be flexible, we were also able to close on the sale remotely, lessening the pressure or stress of having to meet in-person. Thank you for your help, Ilene!
Ilene is passionate about her role and an advocate for my husband and I as we went through the selling process of our home. She cares about us and answers every question and concern we had. She is not only personable and extremely knowledgeable, as well as available for any question. I would highly recommend Ilene for your next real estate experience. Ilene will not disappoint you whether you are selling or buying your home.
I was moving from another state. Ilene took the time to understand what I needed and wanted in a house and did everything possible to make sure I got
it. She is responsive, honest, professional, and truly cares about her clients. I would happily recommend her to anyone! She’s the best.
We retained Ilene to sell our rental home in NE Scottsdale. She took care of managing the cleaning, improvements, and staging of the home in preparation for sale. Additionally, based on her advice we were able to sell at the top of the market efficiently and effortlessly. Lastly and most importantly, Ilene was very professional and a true pleasure to work with.
Ilene is beyond amazing, she and her team are so caring. You feel like it’s just a group of family friends. She truly cares to help you get into your home. I highly recommend using Ilene if needing a realtor.
Ilene is awesome! I have known her professionally For 5 years and she has helped me with all my real estate needs. Ilene is detailed and super responsive. I highly recommend her as a realtor.
It has almost been half a year and I can confidently say my first home is perfect. My girlfriend and I chose a tough time to go house shopping. With covid in full swing and crazy markets I really do not think we would be in a house right now without Ilene. While I was timid and unsure at first when diving into the process. Ilene was confident and honest about the search ahead of us. With a specific budget and area of focus, Ilene made it clear what our game plan was going to be from the get-go. After many visits and a few declined offers, we eventually found the one. I knew immediately I wanted to call it home and honestly, without Ilene’s sense of urgency and relationships, I really don’t think we would be in this house. Ilene is really an expert in her field, and I admire that. It was a nerve-racking yet smooth process, and I could not be happier. Thank you, Ilene.
We were in the market for an investment property in AZ as we live out of state. Not having the time to spend in AZ looking at numerous properties, we trusted in Ilene’s experience and judgment in finding us the right house. She was relentless in looking for properties and found us the perfect one. After that, she found us a tenant. During that time, she handled the details and assisted us in getting all the paperwork squared away. Her responsiveness, experience, and commitment to providing excellent service were amazing. I would highly recommend Ilene to anyone looking for a home.
Ilene helped my sister and I sell my mother’s home after she passed. It was an emotional time and difficult for my sister and I to go through this process. Ilene made everything so easy and simple, so we didn’t have to think about anything except our mother. She gave us great information on the value of the home, produced a full-price offer from a buyer who will live in the home, and she made sure the buyer was qualified so the sale closed on time. Everything, including repairs to the home, was taken care of by Ilene. She was the best. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Where do I even start as the words, I write here will fail to adequately convey the tremendous job Ilene did for my husband and I. We contacted Ilene when we knew we’d be relocating from Iowa so from the start she was faced with that extra challenge since we were not familiar with Arizona. She obviously read and listened to every detail of what we were looking for because it only took one weekend for us to find not only the perfect area but the perfect builder for us! We are not always easy to please but that goes to show the skills she has and how truly wonderful she is at what she does. She was not only a wealth of knowledge regarding real estate and builders but also in AZ areas. She took the extra time to drive around and show us different things she knew we’d be interested in and gave us helpful tips and advice.
We truly never could have built a home from IA without having Ilene on our side. She was our voice during the build as well as our eyes. She took countless pictures and videos as things progressed and was truly was just as excited through it all as we were. We were at ease the whole time knowing we had Ilene on our side.
We truly could not be happier in our Class’s new home in AZ! What makes Ilene even more special is she continues to show her support, and how much she truly cares, by doing things to help us feel welcomed and more settled in our house long after we have closed!
It’s with great pleasure to say Ilene Is someone we consider to be our dear friend! If you are in the market for a new home Ilene is who you want on your side!!
After having met Ilene, it was as if we had already been friends and knew her already. She is a special kind of human being and works extremely hard for her clients. She’s responsive and always positive. Although we had some bumps in the road, she definitely made it more bearable. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a realtor. You will not get anyone more dedicated, knowledgeable and helpful than her. I value her expertise and now consider her a friend. Cheers and happy house hunting with the best, Ilene McKenna.
My brother died in the Phoenix area and I and all of the family lived out of state. We contacted Ilene, who had previously done a market study for him on possibly selling his home. She responded immediately and met with us that night, during our very brief stay in the area as we tried to settle his affairs. She and the rest of her team handled everything for us from start to finish, and since we were not local, that was extremely helpful. I can’t say enough about how appreciative we were for all of her help and compassion, not to mention getting us a prompt sale at a good price. I give Ilene my highest recommendation.
Ilene’s tag line is “Putting the heart back into home ownership” and she exemplifies that statement by 10 times. She actually “puts the professionalism back into real estate”! We can’t say enough about Ilene! She is extremely responsive, helpful in every way, very caring, and so fun!!!! If you want to find your dream home she will make that happen. She is very sensitive to all of your concerns and any special circumstances you might have! One last thing I might add is, all of the professionals that she deals with, in processing your contract (mortgage companies, title companies, home inspection etc….) are all of exceptional caliber. She knows how to make things happen and keep them moving. I would highly recommend her and would go one more step to say, that if you don’t use her, you will miss out on the best Real Estate experience of your life!!!
I felt immediately comfortable with Ilene; as if we had known her for some time. Coming from across the country to buy a home in an area we didn’t really know too much about she made us feel at ease and I felt we could trust her. She spent many hours a day with us to help us find the right home in the right neighborhood. Her knowledge of the areas we visited was great. If she didn’t know the answer to any of our questions, she found the answer. She is very well organized and has a great personality for the business she is in. You can tell she truly loves her job and wants to put the people in the homes they belong in!!!
Ilene was a GOD send to my family! She was the agent we used to purchase our last home, and after that experience, we will never use another agent. Ilene went so far above and beyond on our behalf that I actually feel guilty for not paying her MORE. She is one of the most capable, efficient, charming, and thorough individuals I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. She knows my kids’ names, remembers our professions, etc. She not only showed us homes, which any agent can do. She had design ideas for all of the homes we saw, and she took us to see every single home. We thought might have potential. I would’ve driven myself nuts with how particular I was, buy Ilene never once seemed annoyed or frustrated. In the end, she found us the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood within budget and then went to bat for us to ensure we got the very best deal possible. My family is so happy in our home now, and I know we are in it because of Ilene’s diligence and work ethic. She is truly a remarkable agent, and after working with her, it is my pleasure to also call her a friend. I will never use another agent as long as Ilene is an option. I literally cannot recommend her highly enough!
Ilene helped me and my wife buy our first home when we got married. She is beyond what we would expect from any Realtor. She always made time to see any house we wanted to look at, and when we had decided to place an offer on our house, she made the process so easy and quick. Beyond just being great at what she does, Ilene is just a very nice person and a pleasure to do business with. I can’t recommend her enough, you won’t be disappointed.
Ilene was great to work with. I was new to the area and she had tons of suggestions when I wasn’t sure which area to live. She always took time to answer my million questions. As a first time home buyer I wasn’t sure how the process worked and Ilene walked me through step-by-step and helped along the way.
I’d recommend, Ilene to anyone and will use her again the next time I purchase a home.
This was my first ever large purchase, and Ilene was with me throughout the entire process. She focused on my needs and interests for a home and was very responsive to my calls/texts/emails. Any question or uncertainty was resolved. She’s very professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I highly recommend her.
Ilene McKenna is top notch! She was extremely experienced, respectful of our needs. She was very comprehensive in her search for the right property, being careful to maintain all of the requirements we discussed. The packages she provided were very detailed and gave me a good representation of the properties to be considered. She previewed many properties before presenting the top three and that made my experience more efficient. I would highly recommend her for both rental and purchase properties.
Working with Ilene was amazing!! She exceeded our expectations and found us an amazing home. Working with her made the moving/renting process less stressful (which is exactly what we needed)! We would highly recommend Ilene to anyone looking for a realtor.
Ilene helped me find a rental for a sudden work relocation. I had no time to look and trusted her %100 to find me the perfect place and she did.
She found the exact place with all my necessary requirements (3 bedrooms, 2 bath townhouse with a 2 car garage in a gated community.) I arrived in Peoria with all my belongings in a trailer and moved right in. Thank you Ilene.
Ilene was wonderful to work with! Being 9 hours away and needing to relocate quickly she made it happen and was always responsive and very friendly. She made us feel comfortable, reassured us we were choosing what was best for us and made it painless. We look forward to working with her in the future. It was such a great experience with her, definitely missing out if you don’t have Ilene as your agent. 🙂
Ilene helped us get into 2 homes over the last few years. She made us feel like we were her most important clients. She was always available for showings when it was convenient for us. She is very professional and personable. We recommend her to all of our friends and family. She’s the best!
Ilene helped us to sell our house in Phoenix and to buy another one in Peoria. During this journey from selling to buying was a pleasure to work with her. Always available with a lot of passion she helped us to get to all this. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs service in real estate. Thanks Ilene!!!
Ilene McKenna was commissioned to list and show our home–She did everything necessary to ensure that our home would display well and would attract buyers quickly and effectively–Working together with us, a quality website listing was developed picturing the property in a very positive light–In preparation for the open house Ilene notified agents that she knew would have interested clients–We needed only a one day showing as we received multiple offers from the open house–
From here Ilene helped us with achieving our sale price goal by working with agents to work out the most acceptable buyer–Once done it became time to prepare for the closing–Ilene was helpful in each step of the process necessary to guarantee a smooth transition and a successful closing-
We very much enjoyed our home for sixteen plus years and Ilene helped us with the emotional aspects of selling as well– We feel that Ilene was the consummate professional in helping us through the entire project–We obviously would recommend her highly.
Ilene McKenna was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and efficient in finding the best tenant for our home. We live out of state and it has been a difficult process finding reliable and trustworthy tenants for our “second home away from home.” Ilene represented us in the best way by truly being present for us in all our needs and taking on that extra care. She communicated every possible detail of the prospective tenants, application forms, and any other questions that came to our attention. We truly could not have rented our home without her expertise. We would definitely consider Ilene for all our future home buying, home selling, and home rental needs.
I just wanted to express my sincere gratitude for all that Ilene has done for us. She went well above and beyond with the sale of our home. She went out of her way to make sure our house looked amazing and she dealt with all the countless numbers of people walking through our home. She spent countless hours dealing with the bank on our short sale and made sure that we got the best possible deal. Ilene even helped us with pool issues and made sure our home was secure from theft (a lot of a/c units were being stolen in our old neighborhood). I can’t thank her enough for all she has done. I would definitely use her again. We were even pleasantly surprised when she dropped off homemade baked goods to our new home during the holidays. I mean seriously what realtor does that 2 years after closing! We have bought and sold a few homes in our lifetime to know when there is a good realtor. Ilene is A-MAZING!!! I normally don’t write reviews unless they are negative….I know that sounds bad…but when a well-deserved person does an outstanding job……then she deserves a 5 star review!
When faced with challenges selling our home after we had moved out of state, we turned to Ilene, in a last resort type situation. She was able to guide us though a successfully sale with competing offers in under 3 weeks!
Her natural kindness, generous and positive attitude made the process enjoyable and simple. May god continue to bless you and yours Ilene! We are very thankful for what you’ve done for our family. Will be happy to answer any questions.
Ilene helped us sell our home in Peoria and was a joy to work with. Not only is she a great person but she is highly competent in her job and produced great results for us. We never once had to call her for an update because she was in constant contact with us to advise us of where we were in the process. I highly recommend her!
We have used Ilene to sell 2 homes and to buy 2 homes. Every time she is very diligent and detail oriented. She knows her market which definitely saved us time on doing the research ourselves. I can also always trust her if she recommends a vendor whether it is for home repairs or a mortgage broker.
Ilene is an OUTSTANDING agent that I would recommend to my closest family, friends and anyone else that wants to work with the best. She has integrity, is a superb negotiator, great follow through and has all of the latest and best systems in place which means you will always be up to date with what is happening in the market. After many years in Arizona she knows the communities and areas which will help to take the guesswork out of where you want to live. I’ve been in the business for over 13 years and I can say without hesitation that once you work with Ilene you will have a realtor for life.
Ilene was a joy to work with. She has a natural enthusiasm that energized the community she worked with at the office. Ilene added value through her strong organization skills, professional demeanor and responsiveness. She is a fine example of class in action and I give her my strongest endorsement.
Ilene is one of the most determined individuals I have come across in a very long time. Ilene has great communication, organizational and problem solving skills which results in the ability to manage complex projects, completing them on time and achieving goals set by others and/or herself. Ilene’s excellent follow up skills are going to set her up for a great career in real estate as this is the most important quality needed to succeed. I wish her the best in her new career and look forward to potentially working with her again in the future.
Ilene was an outstanding real estate agent in a recent purchase transaction in the Phoenix area. Her communication skills are excellent and she was always punctual in her response time. Based on her high performance as a realtor, I would highly recommend Ilene for any Real Estate Needs.
I have had the opportunity to know Ms. Ilene McKenna for several years now. She is a knowledgeable Realtor, knows the market trends and is an expert in getting the deal closed.
Ilene is one of my favorite people to work with! She is always professional, diligent, courteous, and does everything with a great attitude and a smile! She is a hard worker with a proactive mindset that makes everyone’s lives easier, most importantly her clients! She is a true joy to work with and I look forward to each and every encounter!
I have worked with Ilene on a couple of real estate transactions and I was the loan officer handling the mortgage in the transaction. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that Ilene was really fighting as hard as she could to get her buyers closing costs paid for them, by the seller. I see a lot of contracts come through our doors and very rarely are many Realtors fighting for their clients. Ilene was a complete professional and let me do my job and trusting me to take care of our clients. We worked very well together and I hope to work with her again in the future.
Ilene is a fantastic Realtor. She always keeps her clients best interest in mind. She works hard and does not give up until her clients are satisfied. She has a very keen eye for design and is very considerate of her client’s budget. I will absolutely work with Ilene in the future.
