Why I Love Evanston:

The university, the lake, the proximity to Chicago are some of the reasons that people come to live in Evanston.  What has kept me here all these years is the incredible sense of community, the diversity and it is a great place to raise a family. Our schools are well regarded nation-wide and Evanston Township High School is one of the best schools in the state.

Evanstonians are very proud of our city and we fight for what we believe.  It is not uncommon for us to fill the City Council Chambers on a Monday night to fight for our causes.

Evanston is an incredibly vibrant city and was recently named the fifth best city to live in.  The restaurants, the university, the lake, beaches, schools and the people make living in Evanston the best place to live!

Clients are saying:

"Prompt, well jnformed, data driven, professional, good taste and intuition on how to best prepare my condo for sale, and on the best compromise between sale price vs. time to find suitable buyers."

"Martin was an absolute pleasure to work with and made the process of searching for and buying our first home fun and easy. My husband and I will be recommending him to everyone we know and will be using him for all real estate endeavors in the future. Highly, highly recommend without any hesitations - especially for first time homebuyers!"

"Martin was with us every step of the way through the process of selling our home. His attention to detail made everything easy for us. His enthusiasm for our home was contagious and he passed it on every time he showed the house. We couldn't have asked for a better team to manage the sale of our home. A true friend and a first class realtor."

"I can't speak highly enough of my experience with Martin Uthe. I was a first-time homebuyer with very little knowledge about how to find the right place; it was a pleasure to work with Martin. A very kind person, helping me with a lot of time and dedication to get the condo that I was looking for and not a place to buy quick. It took several condos to go around looking at the good and the bad and I didn't get the pressure with him to get a condo which wasn't the right one for me. He always was trying to be sure that I was buying the right place. Once I found it, he took care of every single detail with the seller's Realtor to complete all paperwork, inspections and any requests to the sellers. I am enjoying my condo and I have only a big thanks to him because he was on my side at all times and I got "my condo". If the time ever comes when I will be looking for a new home, there isn't any question on who my Realtor will be!"

"Martin gave us exceptional attention every step of the way! He had a good sense of what our selling parameters were (complex, since we wanted to postpone closing and have no contingencies). We got close to everything we wanted within eleven days of listing, and I'm sure that Martin and @properties deserve significant credit. After that, Martin stayed on top of a series of anxious questions from the nervous buyers so that we did not need to worry. Until we started working with Martin we had little awareness of @properties, but now see them everywhere--One of our best decisions!"
