My name is Praveen Mathew and I am a real estate broker with @properties specializing in the North Shore and Chicagoland areas. My passion for real estate started when I purchased my first home. My interest piqued as I watched the market fluctuate and I developed a deep understanding of the decisions that a home owner must make. The intensity and volatility of the real estate market challenged my abilities and I grew an enthusiasm to help others in the critical parts of home buying and selling.
What you will find after working with me is that I will listen, and give honest and constructive advice. I will also give solid research in establishing a fair market value on a potential property. There have been numerous times that a client will fall in love with a property only to find it is over priced. I will negotiate using all available data that is at my disposal to make sure you are getting a fair deal. I have personally negotiated down more than 8% off of list price consistently when I am the buyer's agent, and sold 98%+ to list price when I am the listing broker. That kind of track record says that I do my homework and I negotiate with hard facts.My #1 goal will be to make sure you make a sound investment while giving you the best service.
I am customer focused and have a goal of creating long-term professional relationships by assisting individuals and families in selling and purchasing their home. I will be a dedicated agent with a calm persistence and personal integrity to exceed your expectations. I have lived near the North Shore area for almost 10 years and take advantage of the numerous park district activities with my wife and three kids. My experience in the North Shore area allows me to give you the most useful information in your life changing decision. My advanced skills in technology and attention to detail make me the top choice for your real estate needs.

Clients are saying:
"In a Redfin/Zillow world, Praveen reminds us the value a real realtor brings. Think WedMD vs your Primary Care Physician -- Praveen provided a level or personalized service, real estate knowledge, buying/selling experience, and a network of professionals to help you through the entire journey.
Before we bought, we asked around and got a lot of lukewarm reviews of agents. Even those who liked their agent, weren't thrilled. A few folks suggested just using Redfin ourselves. We're glad we came across Praveen on Yelp.
Praveen took time to get to know us, our family, our lives to understand what would be a best fit for us. He was quick to respond to our questions - even taking some late night calls to discuss options. We have small kids so sometimes the best time to chat is after they go to bed. He went above and beyond in helping us target specific neighborhoods.
During the closing process, Praveen provided tremendous references. Even though I came in with some people I had worked with before and recommended to others (lender, attorney, inspector), I ended up using some of Praveen's recommendations -- and honestly wish I had used more. Rarely have I seen consistently high quality referrals. Praveen's network is strong - no kickbacks, just great people who deliver value and service.
After completing the transaction, he continues to be a resource for questions about renovations, homeowners issues (insurance, repairs, lawn maintenance and so much more). We already recommended Praveen to a neighbor who was struggling with their listing and will continue to do in the future. Thanks Praveen for all your help!"
"I give my highest recommendation for Praveen Mathew. He returns phone calls and emails in less than 24 hours. He is detailed, professional, and organized. He gives sage advice and allows for client input. Overall, he is awesome and you won't be disappointed."
"My wife and I first met Praveen at an open house and immediately could tell he was a great agent. We were buying our first house and needed a lot of coaching and guidance which Praveen was more than willing to provide. As the other reviewers noted he is ethical, patient, organized, detail oriented, and responsive. He kept us focused on buying a home that met our needs within our budget. He is completely dedicated to providing the highest level service and value to his clients possible. What really sets him apart from the typical agent is his genuine enthusiasm and passion for the real estate trade. He thrives on the hunt, the competition, and the negotiations. His enthusiasm was critical as it kept us motivated even when things got tough. We are completely happy in our new home and it was in large part due to Praveen's expertise."
