• About Me

    With 29 combined years in the city of Chicago and the Fox River Valley, I know the Chicagoland market well. A former Chicagoan and current Batavia resident, my clients have ranged from professional athletes to first time home buyers. I excel at matching sellers and buyers with a number of lifestyle and life-stage preferences. Expert at determining your home’s market value, preparing to sell at its highest price, and negotiating skillfully on your behalf, I will exceed your expectations.

  • My Services

    Real Estate Agent / Broker Services

    My business is in real estate, and my heart is with my local community. I treat clients like neighbors: with respect, diligence, and care. Whether we are at the negotiating table, strategizing the most effective pricing and marketing plan, or choosing the perfect paint colors to increase your home's value, I'll be your fierce defendant, advocate, and friend.

    Trusted Third-Party Partners

    Who has the time to vet a landscaper, home stager, house cleaner, mortgage broker, handyman, real estate attorney, etcetera? I do! I have carefully selected a team of professionals to fully support your home sale and/or move. I am happy to consult with you on your needs, refer services, and set up all initial consultations for you. You've got enough on your hands!

    Digital Marketing

    I love thinking about and executing unique marketing strategies for my clients. I am not the real estate agent who will just sit back and hope for the best regarding the sale of your home. Together we will come up with a custom marketing plan that meets your goals, appropriately positions your home, and generates maximum exposure. Utilizing current digital technologies your listing will receive the public attention it deserves.

     

    More exposure = more offers.

    More offers = higher selling price and better terms.

     

    Print Marketing

    One of the (many) reasons I chose @properties as my home brokerage is the gorgeous print marketing materials I can offer my clients. Every listing receives a lovely booklet for prospective buyers to take away with them and remember your home by. The booklet features professional photographs of your home, as well as a description of its features and the features of the surrounding area.

    Experienced Real Estate Attorney

    Real estate attorneys know real estate rules and regulations, review and help decipher contracts and other legal documents, understand zoning, oversee the transfer of deeds and titles, and help uncover liens, restrictive covenants, and other legalities affecting a property--in short, they make the process of both buying and selling a home smoother and reduce the likelihood of closing delays and after-closing litigation. My preferred attorneys are go-getters, responsive, and affordable.

    Amazing Lenders

    I can work with any lender, of course, but if you need a recommendation I have some miracle-worker lenders from local established lending institutions. They know the loan products out there, and they know them well.

  • Visual Marketing Toolkit

    Today's consumers are visual. A home that looks lovely online will generate more interest and better offers. After we stage your home, I bring out top real estate photographers who know how to make your home look bright, spacious, and inviting. For clients with acreage or a particularly notable location, we'll use drone photography. And for my luxury clients with generous properties, I call in the Hollywood crew. Please see the example below. (What do you think, are the butterflies real?)

    How likely am I to recommend Laura Henrikson? Totally Likely! I have already done so to everyone I know even if they are not looking to buy or sell a home at the moment. She's that great! This was my 16th rodeo; and trust me, I've worked with some other really good realtors, but Laura is in a class of her own. She commits herself entirely to you in all aspects of preparing you to list, actually listing/staging, selling, negotiating, and closing. She has a list of reputable companies who can help you clean, paint, pack, or whatever you need to make the work of moving more manageable. In fact, she worked with us a year ago to get our house ready to sell, but things changed and we couldn't list that time. Then when we were ready, she jumped right in and got our home sold in record time! She even held open houses almost every weekend during the pandemic! Laura loves what she does, and it really shows in the creative ways she markets your home as if it were her own. Have fun listing with Laura, we sure did! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    -- Jill W

     

    Shameless brag: I sold Jill's and Sam's home for 11k over asking price!

    We interviewed 3 agents before we decided. We can recommend Laura to anyone without hesitation. We got a full price offer before it even hit the market. We had extra stressors come up and she was able to adjust and guide us through. She knows how to stay calm around anxious people. ;) Her eye for detail is pretty amazing and she knows what attracts potential buyers. She is very well connected and respected in the community and is not only a great realtor but a great person. Bonus, she’s fun to work with too. This is the 5th house we have sold, she is the best listing agent we’ve ever had. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    -- Viki B.

     

     

    We called Laura to interview as a realtor to sell our house and were very impressed with her organization skills as well as what she offered in realty processes for selling. We loved her sweet personality immediately and knew she would do us right! She sold our house one day before it went on the market for more than we ever thought we would get for our home. She made the whole process easier & stress-free for us. We would recommend her in a heartbeat for everyone! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ -- Brad & Merrilee B.

    ​Of note: I sold their house before we even went public on the MLS!

    Laura is an incredible realtor! As a first time home seller, who decided to list and sell during the holiday season, Laura reassured me that no time is a bad time to sell. Given her local knowledge, expertise, and negotiation skills, she definitely proved that statement to be true. During the whole process Laura was timely in her responses and was there to help navigate this new experience for me. In just a few weeks time, I went from staging and listing my home to selling and purchasing a new build. This would not have been possible without Laura's guidance and skill. I would highly recommend her, and would never want to work with anyone else!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    -- Nichole S.

    A big shout out to our real estate agent, Laura Henrikson. Not only does she understand local market conditions, but she is a master negotiator on both ends of the deal. She was available and personally invested in every step of the process. I would highly recommend Laura to anyone looking for a skilled agent to buy and/or sell their home. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ -- Sam W.

    ​Again: I sold their house before we even went public on the MLS!

    Laura is simply the best! I can’t remember how many places we looked at together - there were a lot! When I was ready to give up, she found a listing that was in my price range - jumped in the car, we viewed it and I signed a contract the same day. I can say from my own experience that Laura is very committed to her clients! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ -- Andrea V.

    Side note: We really did look at •a lot• of homes. But Andrea (like so many of my clients) is so fun to spend a day with that it never felt like work-- only fun!

    Whenever I think of Laura Henrikson two things happen. A smile comes to my face and I feel an instant sense of calmness. She offered to do so much to lift the weight off my shoulders and my to-do list. She even made appointments for me. She goes beyond the extra mile and is truly a joy to work with! If you ask me, Laura is worth her weight in gold! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ -- The Wat's

     

    "Laura Henrikson represented me in both the purchase of a new house and then in getting my "old" house ready for the market & selling it. Laura pays great attention to details & she makes sure that everything that needed to be done to get my house ready to sell was done correctly... While both houses were in escrow she checked daily to be sure that all items needed before closing were done correctly & on time, Laura's business card states, "The Senior Team: Selling your home, made easy." That was definitely the case with me. I highly recommend Laura Henrikson." ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ --Jill S.

    Shameless brag: I sold Jill's home in 4 days and got her 10k over her asking price!

    "Laura made the process of buying and selling our home feel easy. She was knowledgeable and available to us when we had questions or concerns. We were thankful to feel like we had her on our team! She helped get us into a home that we love. " ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ --- Joy W.

    "We weren't even specifically looking for a home at the time but had been ready for it for years, and somehow Laura found it anyway and gave us a heads up on the property when she and her family were at our business! That's how you know you have a true matchmaker of a real estate agent, because here we are in our first home, right by the river, a short walk from our business, and at exactly the price we had budgeted. We went not even on the radar to moving in in a month, could not have been a smoother process! Also she's a general delight, which never hurts. Can't recommend Laura highly enough." ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ -- Natalie A.

    After we explained our senior housing requirements to Laura, she helped us find the perfect house. We highly recommend Laura if you are a senior looking for a house that will meet and exceed your requirements. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ -- Tom & Diane M.

    We were first time home buyers and Laura was great at helping us every step of the way! She is very responsive and helped us find our dream home!! I would definitely recommend her to all of my friends and family looking to purchase a home! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ -- Lauren & Matt R.N.

    Honest, hardworking, attention to detail. We love Laura Henrikson and would recommend her in a heartbeat. We needed to get the most from our home sale to buy a better home for our family. Without Laura, I know we would never have gotten over-asking! She told us exactly what we needed to do to spruce up our home, staged it beautifully, and saved us money everywhere she could along the way. If you’re looking for someone who truly wants the best FOR YOU in your real estate journey— you want Laura! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ -- Matt & Jillian L.
