"Because of her professional network, Stephanie found a buyer willing to pay our asking price within two weeks of our listing. We never felt like a commission to Stephanie -- throughout the process, she focused on what was best for us (and the buyer). Stephanie is a pleasure to work with -- enthusiastically recommended!"
- Brian O. Watson., seller
"Stephanie has done four deals for us in the past three years. She shows great depth across the buy-side, sell-side and rental markets. When we decided to rent a condo, Stephanie had a renter lined up before listing. When we were dealing with a challenging buy-side deal, Stephanie kept channels open and we got the deal done at a great price with some great persistence and tenacity on her part. Can't say enough good about how dependable she is from start to finish."
- Kyle Schmitt and Jingfang Cai, Chicago (Buyer).
"I think there is much more that you have done that wasn't listed. And you've done a stellar job. On top of that, you've been extremely trustworthy and resourceful. I really appreciate all that you have done."

"Stephanie was recommended to me by a close friend and I am so glad that I ended up using her as my agent for my condo purchase--she's the best!
As a first time home buyer, things can get overwhelming, but Stephanie was great at keeping me informed of every step of the process. I know she is very busy, but it always seemed like I was her only client. She just made so much time for me and that was really appreciated. Also, she was so knowledgeable about the real estate market and home-buying process. She helped answer all of my questions in a very timely manner. Stephanie is professional but approachable, and a very kind person. She exceeded all of my expectations and I would not hesitate to recommend her to everyone I know who is buying or selling a home!"
- Gina L., buyer
Stephanie just completed a transaction for us, and we could not be more impressed. She did a fantastic job of marketing our listing and getting it closed. But it was all she did afterward to make sure everything was taken care of, that went truly above and beyond what is expected of a broker. Stephanie's dedication, resourcefulness, and continued support was exceptional.”
- Kevin, seller
"My experience with Skyline was as a buyer, with Stephanie Derderian as my agent. My experience was top notch in every way. I gave her specific geographic locations and my budget and I saw homes in those locations and within that budget. No "hey, this is only $10,000 over and we can probably..." or "this neighborhood is just like that one"...The neighborhoods I wanted within my budget. And it didn't stop there. Recommendations for home inspection, mortgage help, and legal assistance were also five star rated as far as I'm concerned. My pet peeve regards people who can't keep appointment times. Stephanie was never late and even when we had four showings back to back, we made each one on time. She's incredible and I will use her again and recommend her to anyone who asks."
- Joe T., buyer
"You've done a super job on this transaction and we would not be closing without the effort you put into it. I've worked with a lot of brokers these last 42 years and never with one better or more skilled than you."
- Jack W., seller's attorney
"Selecting a Realtor is a tough decision, especially a right one. We were very lucky to find Stephanie and Sara. They made us feel comfortable from the start, and did more than their share, such as dealing directly with the home owner association etc. which saved us a lot of time and energy. We will definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a super realtor."
- Miriam K., seller
"You really go above and beyond and I so appreciate your guidance. In addition to your professional expertise and wise guidance your offer to provide exceptional customer service is extraordinary, such as working with prospective clients to make the best choice, and then continuing client contact to assure that their expectations are met, along with new opportunities to improve service and satisfaction. The entire KW team is well informed and coordinated to make things happen with concern for all the stakeholders so everyone is heard and respected, from beginning to end of each transaction, and future oppotunities."

“I have been working with Stephanie Derderian and Chicago Skyline Homes for several years, representing many of Stephanie's real estate clients as attorney. I can report that Stephanie and her staff are experienced professionals who have been successful through hard work and attention to detail. Stephanie follows a deal closely from the beginning through closing and contacts me regularly after the contract has been signed, to make sure a transaction proceeds to closing without a hitch. As a realtor concentrating in the central area of the city with many condominium transactions, she takes initiative in providing the parties with all disclosures and documentation required in a condo sale. Stephanie provides referrals to competent professionals for related services, such as inspections, mortgage brokers, legal counsel and others. She follows up to make certain that mortgage financing is approved, and follows up with all the myriad details that come after the parties agree on a price. All of Stephanie's clients, whether sellers or buyers, express complete satisfaction with her work and value given.”
- Rod Reeves, Real Estate Attorney
"I would like to commend you for your reliability, patience and persistence in assisting me to buy my first property. Your efforts were much appreciated and I highly recommend your services to all new or experienced home buyers."
- Darius, a first time home buyer
"My fiancée, Riley, and I have recently relocated from Southern California to Chicago. My only concern about relocating was finding a home that both of us would love. Stephanie was able to determine exactly the type of home we were interested in buying. Our time to house-hunt in Chicago was very limited, so she previewed all of the properties and had a detailed plan once we came to Chicago. Riley and I are now in our new home and we love it! While we plan to stay here for many years, we are confident that if and when the need for a new home arises, that Stephanie will be our real estate agent."
- Monique and Riley, experienced real estate buyers and investors
"I first met Stephanie as the seller's agent when I was buying a condo in the South Loop. She was always very pleasant, friendly, accessible, and patient, and didn't seem to be pressuring me the way some agents can (I have no patience for that). When I unexpectedly had to sell the condo, I went straight to Stephanie. She did all her research and helped me come up with a strategy, and followed through all the way as the place sold within three months, just as she had predicted."
- Pamela B., seller & buyer
