Honesty and integrity...Throughout my professional career, I have insured that these principles are part of each and every client interaction. In life, as well as business, you only have one reputation. I pride my reputation by delivering a highly professional client experience, every time.
As a life-long Chicago resident (currently residing in Lincoln Park 20+ years), I have an in-depth knowledge of the neighborhoods of Chicago. Having acted as an investor as well as a builder of real estate, I bring a unique perspective to my clients in their real estate endeavors.
When I'm not out assisting clients, I can be found playing music at the Old Town School of Folk Music (on Armitage) as well as many neighborhood summer block parties and charity events.
Educational background: Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania - SIFMA Executive Program; DePaul University, Chicago, IL - Bachelor of Arts

Clients are saying:
"Dave has been on incredible to work with. He is helping with both the buying and selling process. As a buyer's agent, he went above and beyond to help my family find a home that met our very specific criteria. We lost the bidding process on the first home we chose, so Dave actually went door to door in that neighborhood to find out if anyone else on the block was ready to sell. During our search process, Dave previewed homes we were interested in to make sure they would be worth our time to tour. In the end, Dave beat the internet by finding us a home we never even considered. As a seller's agent, he has made the entire process incredibly clear and easy. He is very responsive to all our questions and has been respectful of our concerns. I highly recommend Dave for all your real estate needs!"
"Dave was unbelievable in helping me, a first time home-buyer, through the entire process of buying a home. Dave took the time to get to know me as a client to tailor his assistance to my specific needs. He was always available through email, phone calls, or text messages and was prompt in assisting me with anything I was confused with or needed help with. He was also incredibly honest. I came in assuming that most people I would work with would be looking to make me buy a place and move on but Dave was there to help me buy the right place. He also helped me smooth over all the hiccups that came with home buying with his immense knowledge of home buying as well as his understanding of how the process normally goes. I was lucky I was referred to Dave but would refer him to anyone I ever met because I know how incredible he is at his job."
"David was a great realtor! He helped me purchase my first condo, later rent it out and eventually sell it. He was very responsive throughout the process and went the extra mile to help me understand each component of buying and selling! I would definitely recommend him as a realtor!"
"Dave worked with my wife and I to find a condo for over a year and a half. We toured over 40 units before finally reaching a contract. Throughout the process, Dave was nothing but wonderful! He never had anything but our best interests in mind, and often times, helped us think through what our priorities were and how much we were willing to flex. He is a wonderful agent and dear friend."
"Throughout the 14+ months (and 40+ showings) my husband and I worked with Dave, he became much more than our realtor and more like an extended part of our family. Along with his deep knowledge of Chicago neighborhoods, streets and buildings, Dave's expertise, wisdom and guidance in the home buying and selling process helped us immensely through every twist and turn of our journey to our first home! And what a journey it was! My husband and I were pretty picky about what we were looking for and Dave tirelessly (and VERY patiently) hunted alongside us. He found great properties for us to review, responded quickly to our emails/texts and remained upbeat and encouraging throughout our very long house hunting process. We couldn't be more grateful for his TIME, patience and enthusiasm. Dave is a joy to work with and made our house hunting process FUN. We looked forward to seeing him at every showing! Additionally, Dave really took the time to get to know our family (and was always so entertaining to our son!) and our home buying wants/needs/desires. We truly valued his insights and requested his opinions on the properties we saw. From submitting an offer, to going under contract and all that entails, Dave's role in the purchasing of our new home was invaluable. He stayed on top of deadlines and meetings and truly held our hands through the unfamiliar buying process. With Dave's help, we purchased a place that we couldn't love more and we are so thankful that we were able to purchase it with Dave. The only downside of owning our new place is that we miss spending our weekends touring properties with Dave. We had a blast working with Dave to buy our first home and look forward to working with him again in the future. If you're looking for a knowledgeable, kind, patient, smart, trustworthy, organized and FUN realtor to work with, Dave Wisneski is THE best!"
