As far back as Meredith Van Syckle can remember, she dreamed of being involved in real estate. For three years, she’s been assisting first-time homebuyers and sellers; luxury clients; and new construction and relocation clients in Downers Grove and the surrounding suburbs. Her specialties are single-family properties, new construction, and townhomes.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago has recognized Van Syckle’s talent, and she ranked in their Honors Society Top 16% of Network in 2020 and the President’s Circle Top 7% of Network in 2021. She was also named DuPage Real Producer’s Rising Star in January 2021.
The experience Van Syckle gained as a finance executive serves her well in real estate. “I worked with many different personalities in high-stress situations,” she recalls. “I’m able to quickly identify what is important to my clients. I learned to always come to the table with a solution and if I don’t have an answer, there is a way to find it.”
Van Syckle always discusses current market conditions with her clients and keeps them informed of any changes. “This helps them feel prepared and in control,” she explains.
Van Syckle’s clients repeatedly comment on her professional, caring and understanding demeanor. “My clients say I’m always well-prepared, whether it’s a listing presentation or showing homes,” she says. “I understand what my clients are looking for. I put the clients’ best interests first. This feedback means the most to me. I strive to always be someone my clients trust.” Van Syckle also strives to provide her clients with outstanding, efficient service. This, along with her ability to think creatively, anticipate potential issues and provide solutions are responsible for making her a cut above the competition. She also believes that her strong communication skills and full-service approach make working with her unique. “Many clients say they feel as though they are my only client,” she says.
Van Syckle, her husband and two sons are an active, sports-loving family.
