Tell Us Your Story

I had the pleasure of working with Ilka from Remax and could not have had a better experience!

As a first time home-buyer, she was very patient and understanding of all of our questions and concerns. She takes the time and does the research to be as informed as possible on all regards. Thanks for an amazing home-buying experience!


I highly recommend John Monticello!

He was given the task to list, show, and sell a VERY unique style of home...a geodesic dome! We were so concerned that we would never find an interested party, but John worked incredibly hard to research the selling/sale of local homes that were comparable (not an easy task as our home was not comparable to much of anything). As well he always, and very quickly, responded to all of our questions and concerns. John truly helped us to feel at ease through the entire process of selling our home. Due to John’s knowledge and expertise we were able to sell our home in five months! Please trust in John Monticello, you will not be sorry that you did! Thanks, John!! Sincerely, Kate S.

Ilka Torres’ experience and knowledge about the Real Estate business here in Connecticut are her best assets.

She helped us to find the right home. Her commitment is to you and it is more than just making a sale. She will walk through the house with you and explain everything that is going on. She will climb into small spaces to make sure that there is no problem with the house like foundation issues or termite damage. When buying a home you want someone that is knowledgeable and ready to get her hands dirty and if that is the case you don’t have to look any further. Ilka is just not selling a house to you, she will find the perfect home for you. She got us the right space and just what we needed to accommodate our family. She was very patient and walked us through the whole process of buying our first home in Connecticut. She was available and very flexible with 2 working sisters that have different schedules. We highly recommend her!!!

Torres was very helpful throughout the entire process. From beginning to the end I knew I could always count on her for questions and her advise and what I needed to do to get our home sold. During the process we needed to hire some professionals to do some repairs that the home inspector wanted to have done before the closing and Ilka was there with professionals that she knew of and who could perform the work and they were contractors she knew we could rely on. All of these types of services from Ms. Torres helped me and my family through a very emotional sale of the home and to be able to move forward to start another journey in our lives. Thank you to Ilka Torres.

Ilka found me the house of my dreams.

The entire process of buying a home she was there for me. I am not an easy buyer, I am extremely persistent, texted and emailed and called her about a million times, and she was always there, texting, emailing, and calling me with quick response time. At the end I found a home, and gained a friend. Highly recommended. Thank you Ilka!

I had the most excellent experience being a first time home buyer with Mrs.

Carla Juvencio. Her professionalism, understanding all the in's and out's of her profession made a nerve raking situation smooth as frosting. I would recommend Carla to anyone that is looking for a great home with her undivided attention at all times and going above and beyond to make your dream come true. I wish there were more stars to highlight. Thank you so much for everything that you did for me and my family. Love, Fernanda Frazao Louro
