Patti Sprafka Wagner
In a challenging housing market, it is important to have an experienced advocate on your side. Patti Sprafka Wagner is an amazing Realtor. Her real world experience, energetic support and incredible attention to detail are absolutely essential to anyone buying or selling a home. Before putting our home on the market, Patti toured the house and provided extremely helpful and realistic suggestions for making it more appealing to potential buyers. We listened carefully, followed her advice and were under contract within 30 days of listing!

Patti Sprafka Wagner is a remarkable real estate agent. If you are looking for someone who uses her years of experience to actively walk you through the often difficult and frustrating process of buying or selling a home, you can't do better. If you want someone who will offer both informed opinions and the advice you need to make a decision, Patti is the consummate pro. Patti worked with our daughter and son-in-law as they searched for a home in Oak Park. During the search they looked at dozens of homes from beautifully redone to "what were they thinking?" Patti pointed out the strengths, weaknesses, and potential of each candidate. When the right house finally emerged, our kids were in a position to recognize it and move quickly because of the time they spent listening to Patti discuss the specifics of the others they had seen. When they made an offer, Patti was invaluable in handling the negotiation process. At each turn, in a somewhat difficult negotiation, Patti counseled patience and good sense. When a competing offer emerged apparently from nowhere, Patti devised a strategy which won the day without our kids having to get involved in a bidding war. While we are thankful that due to Patti's efforts, our daughter and son-in-law, are now our neighbors, we are especially grateful that she worked so hard to get our one-year-old grandson only blocks away.

Sprafka Wagner sets the stage for success in real estate
Selling your home has never been more complicated. Today home-buyers can sit at their computers and take virtual tours of thousands of properties. If you are a seller, your challenge is getting your home noticed amid the vast clutter of the internet. What will attract buyers to your home? How will they come to see your house as a place that they want to live? That is where an experienced Realtor comes in.
With over twenty years in the business, Patti Sprafka Wagner is an Accredited Staging professional. With her knowledge in how people perceive properties, Patti can advise her clients on exactly how to arrange and decorate their home to maximize the impact it will have on prospective buyers. "The most important part of the selling process happens before the house goes on the market," Patti says, "People always underestimate what they have to do to get their home ready. Staging the house properly can sometimes be the difference between selling the property in three days or selling it in three months."
To stay on top of the market, Patti regularly pursues professional development and training. In addition to her Staging Designation, she is also a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist. Larger, higher priced homes, according to Patti, present an entirely unique set of challenges. "The more expensive the home, the smaller the pool of potential buyers," Patti says, "I work hard to make sure that the luxury homes I represent get the broadest exposure to the most qualified buyers."
Patti Sprafka Wagner offers her clients a full-service approach. She will help you get your house ready for viewing and then market it in the places that will attract the best possible buyers. From negotiating the contract to navigating the thorny maze of home inspections and quirky village regulations, Patti always strives to make the process, not only smooth for her clients, but pleasant. "Buying a house or selling your house to begin a new phase of your life," she says, "needs to be a dream come true, not a nightmare."
