"TRULY PROFESSIONAL RESULTS FROM A TRUE PROFESSIONAL"
Clients are saying:
"Recently, I found out that my apartment was being sold and I wanted to see if I could purchase it. As a complete novice to buying a home, I reached out to Keith when he had an open house in the building. Despite the fact that I was there mostly to compare that unit to mine and to seek advice, Keith was amazing. he didn’t just brush me off and say what he needed to in order to get me out of his hair. I look young and I get a lot of people who dismiss me or are condescending to me. I didn’t feel that way with Keith. He immediately got me in touch with a great lender with no guarantee that this would enrich himself in any way. We looked into buying the unit we were renting and then he found an even better property and although it was priced higher than we thought we could afford, we viewed the place at 6pm and by 9pm we had an agreement with the owner!
He held my hand throughout the entire buying and closing process, was there at the closing despite this apparently being unusual for realtors to do. Keith really cares about his clients not getting taken advantage of. He cares that he connects the right place to the right client in whatever way is affordable to them. He was patient with two of us not knowing anything about mortgages and property law. He made sure he kept me informed and connected all the way through. He worked fast and efficiently. He made sure I didn’t end up in a bad property that would have been worse for us. In other words, he got us out of a rut. We loved our old place, but it was definitely time to move on and the change was profound. Everyone who has visited this new place say things like it has good energy and is a better fit for our needs. Furthermore, I know I can contact Keith at any time for advice or a good chat. He’s quite personable without being disingenuous.
We had so many specific needs and Keith handled them all masterfully. Keith is FANTASTIC!"
"We engaged Keith after he successfully sold a unit in our building that belonged to a friend of ours. To start, he had an extremely professional brochure made, with beautiful pictures of our unit. Then, the showings started happening, and he also had an open house which was very well attended. Even though the overall real estate market for condos in Evanston was a bit soft, we received an offer of 98% of our asking price after about five weeks. We are very pleased with Keith and would strongly recommend him to anybody looking to sell their property."
""The best Realtor that I've ever dealt with! After buying and selling over 20 properties in my lifetime, I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. He listed the property and the communication on all aspects was great. He was able to get the property listed and sold quickly and was able to sell if for a great amount as well. He did such a great job for me, I am getting ready to list another property with him shortly.""
"Keith is a super nice and professional broker! He is attentive to the unique needs of his clients, very organized and communicate well. He knows how to properly showcase a house to make it more marketable and develop creative MLS listings to attract the right buyers, and successfully identifying and developing a focus or niche in the local real estate market that allows you to distinguish yourself from the competition. I will definitely use him again for my next purchase!"
