My husband and I just closed on our home today. We are so very excited!!! Dana Welch, our realtor, is an amazing person! She was by our side every step of the way from looking at houses to the closing. She was always by our side helping and supporting us. She knows the real estate process very well. She knew exactly what we were looking for. She is very professional yet friendly. To us shes not just a realtor but now a friend! Dana is the best! Sue, at Pro Real Estate, is the best too! She was always friendly when I went into the office to have documents scanned and sent to the lender. There was one time I called Pro Real Estate at 4:55pm (5pm is when the office closes) and she stayed later to scan and send documents. She too is very professional but very friendly. Very welcoming! They arent trying to sell you a house for the $$$. They are trying their best to find their clients homes that they will love for years to come. Dana Welch found us our perfect forever home. I highly recommend Dana for your home buying experience! You will not be disappointed!
Marnie is absolutely amazing and went out of her way to help me and get showings to accommodate my crazy schedule. If you need any help ask her!! She is amazing and next time i need to move i will be asking Marnie to help me! My 3 year old even loved her!
Extremely professional. Pro real estate (Mark & Candy) went way above and beyond to take care of us and get our house sold. I highly recommend them.
Dana was absolutely amazing in the entire home buying process. I have purchased multiple homes and she was by far the most thorough. She checked previous history for all of the properties we looked at, improvements made, fair list price. I would absolutely recommend Dana to anyone relocating to the area or just looking for something new!
Knows the area well. Returned My calls/emails almost instantly,off hours,Saturday and Sunday included. Got just what I wanted in about a week or so. Thanks Dana.
Judy was always there for us at a moments notice. She made looking for a home a fun experience and was always upbeat. Absolutely loved doing business with Judy. Thanks again, Erica
Mark and Candy were so wonderful to work with. They listened to all of our needs and helped us find the perfect home without rushing us to make a decision. They are honest and give great feedback. They go above and beyond for their clients & I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home. Thanks again Mark & Candy Shell!
(Review about Mark & Candy)
Excellence, flawless, easy to work with, knowledgeable, helpful, experienced, very up front and HONEST, trustworthy. I would give their names to my mother, but my Mom gave them to me. You will have an excellent buying experience I promise, and they stick with you the whole way through
Knows the area well. Returned My calls/emails almost instantly,off hours,Saturday and Sunday included. Got just what I wanted in about a week or so. Thanks Dana.
Dana helped us buy our first home. She was very knowledge and helped us if we had any questions. She was also able to show us houses with short notice. She is very responsive to any calls, emails, or texts. I would recommend Dana to others because she is friendly and will have your best interest at heart
Marnie helped sell my property in Diamond and it could not have gone better. She took charge of the selling process and coordinated everything from the showings to the minor repair to be made after the home inspection to the appraisal. The best part is she did this with and selling price that was within about 5% of the asking price! The closing could not have gone smoother. I highly recommend her and Pro Real Estate!
Would like to Thank profusely, Chris Shell, from Pro Real Estate for everything he has done to finally find us a home!🏠 We have had the pleasure of knowing him, and his family, for the 20 years we have lived out here, and they are the nicest, kindest, most patient people! Chris has always gone above and beyond for us, and for my family, to help out in any way possible and putting up with us sometimes is no easy task😉. He made our home buying experience so smooth and easy and was always there to answer any questions or concerns. Thank you so much to Chris Shell, pro real estate, Jeff Fisher, and the loan officers at First Midwest Bank for all of your kind help to make this such a great time in our lives!! We are so grateful!! 😁😁😁
Mark & Candy! We did it! I feel a weight has been lifted. What a perfect time of year to sell. I am feeling so good.Thank you both for your honesty, kindness & friendship. It was a pleasure doing business with you. Take care
We worked with Chris on looking and purchasing our 1st home. His knowledge, input, and interpretation of the market for are area was so helpful. My wife loved how he could point out things she wasnt seeing. Chris was sure to tell her what she should be worried about or not be worried about when looking at things. He offered his honest opinion on pricing verses the market on what we was looking at. We loved that he was always able to work on getting us into see something fast because the market was so hot in the range we was looking. We wouldn't use or recommend anyone else in the market to buy or sell. Chris is the ultimate professional and friend when your looking for your next big investment
If anyone is looking to buy a home or sell their home I highly recommend Chris Shell. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor! He is extremely knowledgeable and is willing to point out the good and bad things he sees in a house which I found really helpful. I cannot thank him enough for his patience while we tried to figure out what we wanted in a house. Once we found our home he was there to help us every step of the way and I honestly believe he had our best interests at heart. He truly was excited for us that we found our home. Chris is a great realtor and a great person!
Mark & Candy Shell and Chris Shell are the tops. You won't find a more honest and straight forward person than Mark. I have a listing with them now and have known them for 21 years since I bought my house through them in town here in Wilmington.

Judy was wonderful to work with - great knowledge of the area and highly responsive! We were selling from out of state; she was able to guide us throughout the process with ease and we would definitely recommend her!

I’d like to give a huge shout out to Chris Shell with Pro Real Estate for selling my Mom’s house so quickly! This was my first experience selling a home and wasn’t sure what to expect, but Chris is so wonderful and knowledgeable that he made this transition of selling my mom’s home less difficult. 🙏🏻🌸😇
So if anyone needs a realtor now or in the future please give Chris a call! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Thanks Chris!
With the help of Judy Sundine, Anthony and I were able to purchase our first home! We could not have picked a better house. Thank you, Judy and all at Pro Real Estate for the help!
Outstanding communication, detailed explanation of every process from posting to closing, more showings the first 2 weeks than the previous 6 months with another realtor. Assisted with any issue. Total professionals that made you feel like they were friends!
A good communicator, hard worker and great sales person! Since the house I sold was in a different state, Marine went out of her way doing things to pass the buyers requirements. Thank you Marnie Jones
Marnie was wonderful to work with!! She was very helpful and told us ‘how it is’ not just telling us what we want to hear. She was excellent and responded to questions day or night.
Judy did a phenomenal job with our project. She is courteous, thorough and always professional. She communicated consistently and worked very hard to close the deal. Additionally, she was very fast in this entire process. We highly recommend Judy for any real estate transaction.
Dana should be everyone’s realtor! Extremely easy to work with, loves her job, loves helping people find the right house, and makes the process easier. She’s the best !!
This dynamic duo are THE realtors to call when buying or selling your home in the Wilmington area. I highly recommend Mark & Candy Shell at PRO Real Estate because of their honesty and commitment. If your shopping around for a realtor give them a call and you’ll see it is best to go with PRO.
(Mark and Candy) Excellent experience. They are very flexible, and helpful. The process was simplified, thanks to the effort they gave me. This is the top team in the area if you’re looking to buy a home.
Dana is very easy to work with. Always responds in a timely fashion. Always up to speed or on top of every step. Very flexible schedule. Is willing to let you lead the way.
Dana is all of the above, we would highly recommend her, she is an excellent Realtor, she is comfortable to work with and smart, and answered any questions that we asked her without hesitation. she will succeed in her career.
Dana went above and beyond to help us with our sale!! She is the best! We would hire her again in a heartbeat!! She had buyers for us after 1 day on the market!
Chris does a fantastic job in dealing with his clients and getting results. He is well informed, professional, keeps his clients updated and knows the market well. I would highly recommend him. We were very pleased with his service.
Judy was a joy to work with. She helped me whenever I needed it. Judy is a very knowledgeable person of the trade and guided me in finding my new home. I would definitely go through her again if I needed another real estate person
Mark and Candy were a great help in the whole process of buying our new home. From the first showing up to closing they were there to help us threw the process. Mark and Candy went above and beyond to make sure every thing went as smooth as possible
Chris Shell took care of us when we got job transfer to Illinois it was 1993 we were both trying to find a home where we could feel at home though we were far from all our family chris was the best he even found a very important issue on our survey that saved us alot of headache he also was involved when we had to go back to our home in nj if today i moved back i would never use anyone else he the best
We could not have had a more responsive and caring agent than Dana. Her immediate response to any questions or concerns was outstanding. She is a great negotiator and was able to get a full price offer. I highly recommend Dana Welch for your home selling or buying needs. I will definitely contact her if we ever decide to sell our current home. Great job Dana!
Chris helped my parents sell two homes and us one, trust him completely
Chris sold our home within 3 days of putting it up for sale and helped us purchase our new forever house. He is extremely knowledgeable of the area and I would recommend Chris Shell to anyone thinking of selling or purchasing a new home.
Chris helped me buy my first home, sold it, and buy my second home. Will NOT use anyone else; he’s fantastic
Chris was our agent. And he did an excellent job of selling our house and finding one for us to buy. Treating us like royalty.
Chris was fantastic! He stayed in contact through the whole process of buying my home. Chris’s knowledge of the Braidwood, Wilmington, Coal City and other surrounding areas is the best. I would not recommended any one else other than Chris.
Chris Shell had complete knowledge of the area. He told us what to do to our house to sell it and it sold in 3 days for a full price offer. When purchasing our new home he helped with any questions we had. His experience is what sold our house and what helped us obtain our new home. I would highly recommend Chris Shell!
I am a loan originator and closed a purchase with Marnie last Friday. great to work with her as she was always responsive to any needs. Loan closed smoothly and on time ! thanks Marnie!
Susan & I would like to give a shout out to the guy who helped us get to the next chapter of our lives. Our Relator Chris Shell with Pro Real Estate was awesome to work with in our search for a place to call our home. We started our search in January so little to say there were alot of house visits in the freezing cold, but Chris was always so accommodating and worked with us and our crazy schedules which allowed us to look at quite a few homes before we made our decision. Chris isn’t the type of Relator who makes you feel rushed or like you’re an inconvenience when asking questions. He made us feel very comfortable from the start, was always answering our questions and helping us to make informed decisions about the houses that we looked at. We highly recommend that anyone who might be in the market for purchasing or selling a home give Chris Shell and Pro Real Estate a try. You won’t be disappointed… We sure weren’t.
Marnie was great. Stuck with us for a year until we found our home. Had great financing recommendations with a low rates. Super nice and we would 100% recommend her to anyone. Thanks again Marnie!
Marnie was very helpful and very quick on responding with the issues of purchasing a home. The process was smooth all the way from viewing the homes and the closing.
Marnie helped me find my new home , she sent me listings daily and was very patient with me and the many houses I had her show me . I was very picky so it took awhile in this crazy market . She is very professional, polite and responds promptly when you need her. Wouldn’t hesitate one bit to use her again if I decide to relocate again
Marnie helped us sell our first home in Elwood and purchase our next home in Buffalo Grove. She made sure both sides of the deal went as smooth as possible and was quick to return our frequent calls! ? if we ever decided to sell and buy again we would use Marnie and definitely recommend her to others. Thank you Marnie!!!!
Chris Shell was a terrific real estate agent. He was knowledgable of the pricing in our area. He gave an accurate appraisal of what we could expect to get from the sale of our house. He gave us a listing of what houses had sold for in our area as a basis for his appraisal. Chris also was also prompt on anything that needed his attention. We were given plenty of time when a showing of our home was scheduled. He then followed up with any comments that were given regarding our home. Chris was able to negotiate the price of our home so that we made the most for our sale. We were given the costs of what we would have at closing and those were completely accurate without surprises. He put us in contact with a great lawyer, Tom Rhodes from Odekirk, Allred & Associates, that handled the legal documents. We were completely satisfied with our lawyer as well. If we were ever to be asked for a recommendation for a real estate agent, we will absolutely recommend Chris Shell
Chris is the absolute best there is! He got me a steal on a newly completed house when it never even occurred to me I could afford new construction with my budget. He got me a better deal on my loan than my bank could, he hooked me up with a great attorney, Tom Rhodes from Odekirk, Allred & Associates, at a great price. Saying Chris goes above and beyond is an understatement! I tell everyone that I hear mention real estate if they need a house they need to call Chris. Literally can’t say enough good about my experience with him!
Extremely knowledgeable about the market and houses in general, always available to answer questions and help in any way he can. He (Chris) walked me through a couple repairs that the home needed and referred me to some reputable suppliers for materials. I could not have gotten this deal done without him.
Judy is an exceptional realtor as well as a wonderful person. She was not only on top all the current listings, but she knew what was good and what was not so good. After looking at several homes throughout the area, I was finally able to close on a beautiful home in Braidwood. She is top notch, and I could not have had a better person to show me around this area.
Judy is amazing! We came to her with a certain house in mind, and she made it happen for us! We took a walk-through of the house and within two weeks, we had our closing date set. I would 100% recommend her.
I reluctantly had to move to the Wilmington/Braidwood area 6 months ago. I had contacted other realtors who simply wasted my time, even though I was already pre-approved and more than ready to purchase my first home. It was very discouraging, until I met Judy. She is extremely nice and I firmly believe she would do anything for anyone who needed help. I just closed on my first home a few days ago. Let me tell you the experience was terrible dealing with the sellers and their attorney. Judy went out of her way more than once to help this transaction go smoothly. If I was to buy another home I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up the phone and call Judy Sundine. I can simply not say enough kind words about her work.
Marnie is amazing!! Marnie helped us buy a home we love in Morris IL. We viewed homes in South Wilmington and Gardner before viewing homes in Morris. She was always pleasant, patient, helpful, and communicative. I could reach her by email or text at any hour, and really felt like she cared about us finding what we were looking for in a home. She was flexible with scheduling, and didn’t mind at all going from one town to another. She answered all of our questions quickly, even when it required contacting numerous listing agents. We asked her to show us about 16 homes. She was never at all pushy about us making a choice, and never tried to sway us towards one home or another (despite us viewing homes in a wide price range, which would affect her commission). When we did choose a home, she had excellent and useful advice in crafting our offer. The same is true of helping us with our counter offer. She went above and beyond in every way. My boyfriend dislikes real estate agents and salespersons of any type–yet he also loved Marnie. I’m so glad she was our real estate agent and would recommend her to anyone with needs even remotely like ours.
The Pro Realty team was great in helping us market and sell a difficult property. Their knowledge of the area and the buyers we would need to attract made the sale possible. Communications with them is always excellent and prompt. Any questions or concerns we had were answered immediately. I highly recommend them for anyone selling or buying any real estate. They are definitely our exclusive partners for our real estate needs of our business.
Kelly K. was open, upfront and very knowledgeable. Professional from start to finish. I couldn’t have asked for a smoother transition in the sale of my home.
We would highly recommend them. Jayme was very professional and went above and beyond to help us sell our house. She worked will with our Management agent and dealt with tenants.
Mark Shell and the Pro Real Estate Team. If you are contemplating on buying a home in this area (Wilmington, Coal City, Braidwood, etc..), it is imperative to work with someone who knows the area, the people, and the homes. Not to mention a valuable list of local contractors/handymen. Mark helped me purchase my first home 15yrs ago and another one in “2014”. These homes were not money makers for him. But, one thing I can say is that Mark dedicated himself to helping me with those purchases as if I were buying million dollar mansions. Mark has never once made me feel as though my business was not worthy regardless of my budget. Mark is someone you can contact with questions or concerns and always get a response. He has helped me tremendously with understanding certain aspects of real-estate and advising me on things that saved me hundreds. Marks dedication and knowledge in his business is displayed by the longevity, loyalty and respect he has gained not only from the community, but from clients such as me. I always look forward to working with Mark because I know I’ll be working with someone who I feel comfortable with, and makes the home buying experience educational as well as enjoyable.
Mark and Candy were so helpful through this process. I was unsure and nervous about so many things but they helped me every step of the way. They were so responsive to every phone call and text. If I ever move again, I will use them again.
We were kept informed, contact was always there, via text or email and phone. Chris Shell was honest and very easy to work with. Chris arranged his schedule to meet our needs. I would contact and recommend Chris Shell and Pro Realty for all real estate needs.
I was a 1st time buyer and Chris made my buying experience extremely easy. He explained things to me and was not pushy in the slightest. He seemed very interested in finding a home that fit me. He followed up and checked in with me frequently and made himself available after hours to accommodate my schedual. Was extremely pleased with the quality of service from Pro as well as Chris himself.
Judy was wonderful with us through our whole experience. She picked up on what we were looking for and was always available to us. I appreciate all of her help, and would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.
Chris went above and beyond the expectations of a realtor. He was always available for any questions or concerns. Chris handled everything from start to finish. He even found us a temporary place to live. Mark Shell was helpful as well.
Chris was very professional and down to earth. Was like talking with an old friend. Took the time to make sure I understood everything involved with the sale of my home and the purchase of another. Would highly recommend him.
Chris Shell at Pro Real Estate did a phenomenal job getting us the house we loved. He was honest when discussing our needs now and in the future and really opened our eyes as to what is important in a home based on our needs. Chris was polite, prompt, and went above and beyond to make our experience easy and pleasant. We love our new home and could not be happier with our experience.
Loved working with Chris! We were purchasing a home from 1000 miles away and we definitely put him to the test. I cannot say enough good things about him!
Judy Sundine was ever so patient with us! She worked with us for over a year trying to find a house that best suited our needs as well finding the right time for us to buy a home. We felt so comfortable with her that is almost felt like we had known her for years which made the looking process s much better. We also felt like she really took the time to get to know us so she could find houses for us accordingly. There are so many great things I could say about Judy but there is not enough words to describe her and her service to us.
All around Very professional in every aspect. Very accommodating and provided superior service. Extremely happy with the service they provided. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else but, Pro Real Estate.
She is a true pro. A broker on your side. She treats you like family. Judy has the expertise you need to get you through the process. I believe she truly cares, I would recommend Judy to everyone.
Was a first time homebuyer with a million questions and a nervous wife. Judy was great at answering our questions, calming our nerves, and showing us as many houses as we wanted. She was professional and courteous every step of the way. Her expertise helped us not only find our home, but buy it at a fair price. Would highly recommend and will use again when the time comes
As a first time home buyer we did not know who to trust and was a little lost in the whole process. We talked to friends and family and even a few realtors. Then we met Miss Sundine, we talked with her and she helped us understand so many things that we were not sure of and did not understand. When we had a question she was very quick to respond to our E-Mail or our phone calls. She was always very polite and Professional. Miss Sundine is a very knowledgeable Expert in her field. Out of all the people we have met during our journey in finding a home for our family Miss Sundine is by far the best we could have ever hoped for……Thank you Miss Sundine for showing us the way to finding our HOME!!!!
