Clients are saying:
"JP worked with me through the purchase of my first home and my experience with him was absolutely outstanding. Everything went very smoothly and JP's knowledge of the area, along with his diligence and attention to detail made every transaction worry-free. His communication was consistent and remains to be so even past my closing. He has been tremendously helpful in connecting me with contractors and ensuring my new home is exactly how I want it to be. He is a phenomenal real estate agent and a great Chicago connection. I highly recommend him!"
"I cannot say enough good about JP and the crew at @Properties! When I decided to sell my West Loop property I was excited and ready for it to move and JP knew exactly what to do. He treated the sale of my home like it was his own. Meticulous detail to helping me "prep" the house to look as good as new, picked the perfect weekend for an open house, a great strategy to get the best offer we could imagine and even staged the place with music and food! It worked like a charm! One open house, 5 offers (all over asking) and boom! Sold! He even connected me with a realtor in CA where I bought our new home...even his referral to her was perfect! Thank you for being amazing JP and helping me realize my dream of moving to Cali...you truly are the best @Properties has to offer."
"JP is the absolute best. Not only is he in touch with updates regularly, he's easy to reach. He also knows his market, and familiarizes himself with all relevant comps. And people love him! Plus he's truly tireless. I put off having an agent handle my rental property and my only regret is not bringing him on sooner."
"I moved halfway across the county and JP made it happen!"
"JP went above and beyond to ensure a smooth transaction and a great purchasing experience for my girlfriend and I. JP was always very upfront with us and made sure we he and everyone involved were on top of everything that needed to be done. Not only was he great to work with on a business level, but we also gained a friend out of this process. He is trustworthy, attentative, responsive, and most of all personable. He truly cares about the customer experience and brings a positive attitude to the table every day. Highly recommended for all!"
