Clients are saying:

"Keith was very patience and helpful in helping us find a new home. He knew what we were looking for and we visited 20 homes in different communities before we found the right one.We knew thatwe were not his most affluent clients but we were treated as if we were."

"We were really fortunate to have received Keith’s referral through a friend. We were looking for an investment property, and found Keith to be extremely knowledgeable, responsive and professional. As first time investors, we had many questions and concerns, Keith was very patient and made a typically stressful experience quite enjoyable for us. Keith not only helped us buy a great investment property, he also helped rent out the property in no time. The entire process was seamless, Keith was in constant communication, always providing valuable insights and willing to go the extra mile. It was a pleasure working with Keith, we would highly recommend him for any real state needs. THANK YOU KEITH!!"

"I hired Keith from one of his sales flyers that I got in the mail. I have several friends who sell real estate, but I wanted someone local. I made a good decision! Keith is very knowledgeable about condos on Sheridan Rd. and Edgewater and I'm happy to say, Keith sold my condo. He is very hard working, professional and he gets the job done. He made the whole closing process painless and even gave me a very generous gift at closing. He's a great guy and a great agent. HIRE HIM!"

"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."
