Clients are saying:

"Tom was not just our agent, he was a vocal advocate for our property, and for us as people. He truly cared about doing well by us and making sure we felt confident about every recommendation. His jocular attitude made him very easy and fun to work with, and we would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. We were lucky to find him!"

"If this isn't the perfect real estate agent for all of your needs, then that person doesn't exist.
Thomas (Tom) will fight for you, and be by your side every step of the way. He has impeccable knowledge of the market and listings in Chicago. With his help, I could focus on all of the many other important things in my life without worrying too much about finding a place to live.
I cannot thank Tom enough for all of his hard work and prompt responses. He even came to my office (twice!) to ensure that payments and documentation was delivered in a timely manner.
This is the guy you want to handle your buying/renting needs in Chicago. Truly a wonderful agent."

"Tom was a blessing! My wife and I had to make a fairly quick move out of our uptown apartment, and our dream had always been to live in the heart of the city. I started to look online on my own and soon found that to find our perfect 2 bed 2 bath with a balcony and view in our price range was going to be tough. And then I found Tom and he put my worries at ease and showed nothing but utter determination and resilience with making sure we found our dream place! He answered all of my odd hour emails and texts and random questions with a confident " I am on it and we will find your dream place I promise. " Those calming words were unbelievably appreciated during a stressful time of moving. I am happy to say that my wife and I and our chihuahua Martini, woke up this morning to the most breathtaking views of the city because of you! Thank you Tom for all of your hard work and determination, you are an amazing person and appreciate all that you did for us!"
