Truly understanding the needs of his clients is something Pedro values. He shares that his personal goal is to exceed the expectations of each client. Becoming their trusted advisor is something that he tries to earn with every interaction.

Clients are saying:
"Pedro was awesome! Extremely dedicated, honest and professional real estate broker! After so many of years of being away from the city, he managed to find me a place in a matter of days. I truly recommend to everyone! And promise you will be more than satisfied with his results."
"Pedro is simply the best, most knowledgeable and professional broker I've ever worked with. As a real estate investor, Pedro is an invaluable part of my team and we will continue to work with Pedro to purchase additional properties in Chicago!"
"Pedro worked with me when I had very little time to find a place and hadn't had any luck looking on my own for several months. I was frustrated and rushed and hadn't had good experiences with realtors up to that point in the process. He went above and beyond to help me. I really felt like he listened to me and got to know what I wanted before sending me options. He was knowledgeable and thorough. The process was so smooth and worry-free. I can't say enough about how wonderful the experience was. We found an apartment that was exactly what I wanted and he was there making sure it went smoothly until I moved in. Even then, he reached out to make sure everything was still going well after I was settled. I really felt like he cared about getting me a place that worked for me. I cannot recommend him highly enough!"
"Pedro couldn't have been more helpful or involved when it came to finding my perfect place to rent. He was constantly keeping me up to date with available listings and did everything he could to ensure I found the right place for me. He's the best!"
"My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Pedro. We were moving to Chicago from out of state, with a limited amount of time to find a home, and Pedro made the process seamless for us. He was incredibly knowledgeable, communicative, and responsive. Pedro definitely went the distance to ensure we found the property that would be *THE ONE*. He was able to do some quick work as soon as we made a decision and he made sure we got exactly what we wanted during a very competitive time. I also cannot say enough regarding his patience. We would definitely work with Pedro again and recommend him without hesitation!"
