It was pleasure to work with Svetlana Chkolnik and she did fantastic job on both of my purchases - my new home and an investment property. She is very knowledgeable and professional and it was good to have her on my side representing my interests with her expertise and competence. She was the one who made the stressful process smooth and enjoyable. I trust Svetlana and her professional opinion and it is of high importance to me with my busy schedule that she is always punctual and responsive. Her kind personality deserves additional attention! I already recommended Svetlana to my friends searching for an ideal home, as she understands the priorities and hears the needs of her customers one of whom I am honored to be!

Svetlana went above and beyond to help me when my home flooded. She and her husband came over late at night and helped me. Dmitri also fixed several items and retrieved things from my attic that I was too afraid to access. Svetlana has a great personality, she's kind and compassionate, understanding and fair. I consider her a friend now.Kimberly Lazich

My husband and I were so fortunate to have found Svetlana. As our Realtor, she helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. She was patient with us and cautioned us about making unreasonable offers when we fell too quickly for overpriced homes. She was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. We would recommend Svetlana to anyone who is searching for a new home! Thanks Svetlana for being such a pleasure to work with.Lana B.
Svetlana was our agent, she took us everywhere! We gave her our budget, must haves and possible locations. She was great, always available and helpful. We called her at least three times on Sunday mornings hoping to go look at a new property we saw online. Every single time she was able to show us the houses within a few hours. She knew about all the local schools and tax rates of the various towns we were looking at. We couldn't recommend her more!Mark B.
Svetlana was a great asset to have in our home buying process in Avon. She was unbelievably responsive - answering texts, phone calls, and emails at all hours, always provided her honest opinion in informing our decisions, had a fantastic attitude, and helped us win a bidding war with her knowledge of the area market and negotiating skills. She has continued to be super helpful as we make renovations, and I know she will be a fantastic friend and neighbor to have in the future.Anna Y.
We were looking for a house in West Hartford and Svetlana was extremely helpful and professional in finding the right house for us. She has proven herself to be a person who works tirelessly and always with a positive and professional manner. We also worked closely with Svetlana during our renovation project and she was there every inch of the way, offering help and support. We could never have completed this project without her. Her upbeat and happy personality made working with her a joy. She constantly went above and beyond what is normally expected. Svetlana continues to answer our inquiries on a whole range of issues ranging from recommended contractors and service providers to best restaurants in the area. I have recommended Svetlana to several of our friends. She is truly a pleasure to work with.Maria O.
