Curt Ratcliff has 16 years of real estate experience in Chicago and has been a Chicago Association of Realtors Top Producer since 2003. Here are a few things Curt's clients are saying about Curt....
Curt is a great agent. Originally recommended by a friend, we have used Curt to sell, rent and buy property. He has shown his versatility in brokering buy/sell transactions at all price points, and demonstrated he is just as capable and dedicated at selling a studio as he is a million plus SF home. During the course of these transactions he has not only been a great business partner but has also become a good friend. Curt is dedicated, proactive and knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone.
Curt was always available to answer all questions and was honest in his approach and I believe he had our interests at heart. This last attribute is what you want most from an agent.

Curt Ratcliff listened to all of our concerns during the process and steadily provided an invaluable resource. He set the bar with his patience and solid, sound advice during what became an extended search for our home. Oh, and let me also say that as the seller of our condo we remained highly optimistic and confident as he facilitated a steady stream of interested buyers and had a sale within three weeks of our condo hitting the market. Overall, a joyful, reliable and proficient professional. Brandon F.
Curt was great to work with. He would always keep me informed about what was going on with our condo. He was on top of his game and made selling our condo a painless process. Thanks Curt!
Curt Ratcliff's knowledge of and instincts for the Chicago real estate market, along with his easy-going, no pressure style, ensured that I ended up with the perfect property for my needs at the price that I wanted. I would recommend Curt's services to anyone, and I can't wait to work with him again for any of my real estate needs.
We worked with Curt for over a year. He sold our house, found us a penthouse to rent month to month (that would allow a 100 lb Male Rottweiler)and finally helped us purchase our house. I don't think there was day when we did not speak. I am a demanding customer and Curt was flexible, responsive, willing to work at any time- day or night. He loves what he does and is knowledgable about the Chicago real estate market.
