Clients are saying:
"J.P. was the best real estate agent I have ever dealt with in a 40 year adventure of buying, selling and renting residential property! He listened very carefully to all of my concerns about the nature of the condo on Printer's Row that was to be rented and about the type of tenant that I needed for that space, was keen to showcase all of the amenities of the property, had wonderful photos taken of it, started showing it immediately after it was listed, and managed to rent it to a suitable tenant within only a few days for $275. per month more than the original rental I was seeking! He focused on the condo rental as if it were the only property he had to rent, contacted me immediately with any problems, and got back to me almost instantly if I had an question. He was extremely professional about everything, and did it all with a sweet charm and grace that is rarely seen these days. It was an absolute delight to work with him and I would not hesitate to hire him again for any real estate venture or to recommend him to others. Kudos to J.P.!!! He's the best!!!"
"JP was a pleasure to work with. He made what is usually a stressful process, and made it fun."
"It has been a joy working with JP. He helped us find an apartment in the south loop with a limited budget and a handful of restrictions. He spent the time to get to know us first so that he could pull together a list of ideal apartments. He's patient and incredibly professional. We felt he understood our constraints as well as what we'd really be happy with in an apartment and didn't hesitate to advocate for our needs.
He surprised us in finding a location we hadn't even considered and found it to be perfect!"
"JP was fantastic! He helped me and my fiancée find the perfect apartment!"
"My experience working with JP was fantastic! We always felt like he had our best interest in mind. He was very attentive and fun! Would use him again without question. Plus we love our new apartment, such an amazing find!"
