Clients are saying:
"Sam was our agent when purchasing a home in Spring 2018. My girlfriend and I had a tough time focusing on what was important for the apartment (2 bed vs 1, kitchen size, location to transportation etc) and Sam helped us focus on what we wanted vs. what we needed. He was also particularly helpful in the home inspection phase. There were a number of items I would have skipped over that Sam brought to our attention. Overall very helpful in our first home buying process and we would recommend to other first time buyers as well."
"Sam was very knowledgable and thorough in the listing process when selling my parents' home. He answered questions and concerns in a timely matter. He did his homework in terms of comparative value and worth of the home. He offered useful doable suggestions to engage buyers. Through his listing, we were able to attract a wide range of buyers and considered several offers. The house was sold in a reasonable amount of time for a comparable price."
"Sam helped me find and buy my condo. Sam did a great job of finding properties that were a great fit for me. When the time came to make an offer and close Sam made everything very easy for me. Sam knows the Chicagoland area very well. Highly recommended!"
"Sam made the sale and purchase of my condo as easy a process as possible. Sam was knowledgeable, attentive, and brought insight that was incredibly helpful. His expertise is invaluable and I will definitely use Sam again in the future."
"His patience and understanding is what made our experience with Sam wonderful. He knew what we were looking for and what we needed, and he delivered. His negotiation skills got us a house at the price we wanted. I have and will continue recommending Mr. Marconi to my family and friends."
