Clients are saying:
"My fiance and I were very nervous about our first home purchase. I was recommended John by another realtor from the city who I'd worked with who didn't have expertise in the suburbs. John was very patient and knowledgeable about all the different areas surrounding Chicago. He knew everything about the different school systems and quirky neighborhoods. He carted around with us for over a month searching for the perfect place seeing at least 30-40 properties.
Along the way he educated us about things to look out for, signs that a house was well taken care of and everything in between. He even has a pretty good sense of humor. He put up with our pickiness with effortless ease.
When it came time for making offers and closing John laid out our bargaining position and put together very good comps to give us an idea of the market. He was a good negotiator and got us much more money off the purchase price than I was expecting. The closing was very smooth and John kept us on top of all the important deadlines. I would definitely recommend John to any other first time home buyers or anyone else looking to buy in the suburbs."
"He was great! Took us to see any and every house that was in our budget and always made the time around our schedule to do so. He was laid back and personable and made the whole process fun."
"Very helpful and very easy going. Made the whole first-time buying experience very comfortable. We were able to ask any questions about the process while feeling comfortable. John definitely showed care and passion for helping us find our first home."
"John Salidas helped me with leasing my 3 bedroom and 2 bath property in Lombard Illinois. He was knowledgeable and very professional and able to find a family to lease my rental property in no time. John was able to get the best price for my rental property. I would not hesitate to use him again and would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family."
"We were first time home buyers. John helped us understand things to keep in mind while buying a house. We viewed many houses before buying. John was very patient with us. He educated us throughout the buying process about how to negotiate with the sellers. We got a good house and a good deal because of him."
