Judy was very patient, supportive, and encouraging throughout the (very draining) short sale process. She responds quickly to emails and phone calls and was always professional.

P Abraham

Great! Knows what she is doing, is personable & very professional. Takes care of the business as it is needed, plus she takes the time to answer the many questions that this real estate market is encountering. A+ Five Stars

Seller D Marcotte

Judy is professional, friendly, hardworking, honest, and pleasant to work with. She was our buyer's agent for a long-distance purchase and move, and I would highly recommend her for making a long and dramatic process as pleasant as possible. I would say she is "not at all pushy and very laid back", as she did not try to hurry us or encourage us to settle quickly on a house. In two separate trips from out of state, Judy dedicated entire weekends and showed us every single residence on a very long list. However, when it came time to close on 'the one' the laid back demeanor went away and Judy negotiated firmly and swiftly to get us an attractive deal on our terms. She was fully respectful of our needs, wants, and limits, and really a joy to work with. I will consider her first for any future real estate needs.

Judy is everything a real estate agent should be. After running the gauntlet with several, I knew within the first 5 minutes of meeting Judy that she was my new agent. She offers honest advice and gives guidance, but let's you control the decision making process. I would and WILL recommend Judy to every single person I know looking to buy a home.

J. Clarke

In April 2010 while desperately searching for  yet another Realtor to help us short sale our house, something about Judy Orr’s online presentation caught our attention. Her expressions of an earnest commitment to get one’s home sold and the description of her approach to the process was just what we were looking for. We had moved out of State in 2010 and for over 4 years had been unable to sell our house in the Chicago suburbs due to the real estate challenges in the area. Having worked with three other Realtors that were unable to get the task done, we were in dire need of a champion to help us lift our burden.

We decided to work with Judy even though we had other referrals from friends and neighbors and from our very first conversation in April 2014, we knew we had fallen into good hands. Judy gave us her assurance that she would do everything she could to get our home sold – and that’s exactly what transpired! Judy became an advocate on our behalf. She was exceptionally professional and always available when we tried to reach her during the process. She took fabulous photos to superbly present the vacant home on the short sale listing. She kept us fully updated on showings and kept her eye on the vacant property. She referred us to a law firm, very experienced in short sales  and together with this firm, Judy was able to accomplish a rather difficult transaction, bringing our house to closing with two lenders involved before the end of 2014.  Judy’s accomplishment on our behalf is simply outstanding - what 3 previous realtors were unable to do in over 41/2 years! We highly recommend Judy Orr. If you find yourself in need of an experienced and knowledgeable Agent to professionally champion your bid to sell a house then look no further.
