Clients are saying:
"Patrick displayed a professionalism in his knowledge of the Chicago city real estate market that was exceptional, He grasped what we were looking for and helped us focus our needs and wants resulting in a purchase that not only fit what we we felt we had to have in a residence, but also fulfilled our “wish list” as well. This only happened because Patrick was willing to take the time to allow us to see what the market had to offer and to develop a clear picture of what was perfect for us. Patrick provided us with showings that revealed many possible responses to our thinking and when we found the property that completed our search, Patrick was supportive throughout the negotiations with the seller, the closing and far thereafter. His deep knowledge of the real estate search and purchase process made the entire experience one that we could not have completed without his help and guidance. His knowledge, patience, trustworthiness and integrity make him an exemplary real estate professional. We would highly recommend Patrick to any of our friends seeking real estate in Chicago."
"I was relocating to Chicago, IL from Palm Coast, FL and Patrick J DeRiso was able to assist me with securing a one bedroom condominium in a High Rise building in the Edgewater neighborhood. He was extremely attentive, knowledgeable and very courteous and professional. I very much enjoyed working with him and would highly recommend him."
"Apartment hunting with Patrick was great -- his knowledge of the city allowed us to schedule viewings efficiently, and he promptly responded to all of my inquiries. We were able to find a place we liked and sign the lease within two weeks after initially contacting Patrick -- enough said."
"We contacted Patrick to sell our house at a time of the year when it can be challenging to get a property sold (near the holidays in snowy Chicago). Patrick ended up selling our house and did an amazing job , communicating and working with us through the entire process."
"Buying a home is stressful, and it can be a long, tedious process. Patrick works very hard to get feedback on listings and showings, and to understand exactly what you are looking for in a home, and what you can and cannot live without. He's also incredibly responsive, and provides helpful information and observations based on his many years of experience. I don't buy a home very day - sometimes I didn't know what to look for and Patrick looked thoroughly with me at each place we saw, asked detailed questions, and served as a sounding board when I was assessing the days' showings. I learned a whole lot from Patrick that I didn't know when buying my previous condo. On top of a broker/realtor, you get a therapist. And let's face it - when making this type of investment, you need one!! Additionally, I asked for recommendations regarding inspectors, loan officers, and lawyers, and everyone that was a part of the "team" made things go about as smoothly as they could have. As these things go, this was not only educational and productive, but now I've got a rockin' new condo in a fantastic neighborhood, within my price points, and it has everything on my list that I had said I wanted when we started looking. All I need is for my movers to get me there on schedule and without any broken dishes! :)"
