Clients are saying:
"Chad was absolutely amazing to work with. From our initial meeting to closing day, he was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. Looking for a new home can be very stressful but he always made me feel comfortable and calm. Along with his incredible charm Chad is very informed and knowledgeable. If I had any questions he was very prompt to respond and ensured that I understood everything. Even after closing Chad checked in to see if I needed anything else or had any follow up questions. I highly recommend Chad to be the person help you find your new home!"
"I highly recommend Chad Schayes as a realtor, but he is so much more. He is a kind and supportive person. The life experience of either selling or buying comes with many emotions and that is where Chad rises above the rest. He sold a condo for me and helped me beyond my expectations of what realtors do. He is in a league of his own. His expertise and compassion will never be forgotten."
"Chad was an exceptional realtor. My daughter and I were looking for her first condo in the chicago area. Chad was extremely active in sending msg listings that fit into our criteria. He made every effort to be ready and available for both of us. He was always pleasant and friendly. He was patient and kind when we needed our nerves to be calmed, and thorough when he explained things we didn’t understand. We were able to find a great home for my daughter quickly and within the budget. I would highly recommend Chad to anyone looking for their next home."
"Chad is amazing! I'd recommend him to anybody, but especially first time home-buyers. He is great at explaining what would be happening step-by-step at every point in the process; his initial consultation with me set the stage right away for a smooth and successful process. He is also EXTREMELY responsive, always available via text or email to answer questions big and small. He made a stressful process painless and fun! Lastly, he's very familiar with the Chicago market, and was able to provide fantastic guidance on home values, what kinds of offers to make, if places would go quickly or had room to negotiate, etc. - and he was always right on the money. Even after I closed on my condo, he was still available to provide referrals for handymen, designers... he does it all! Cannot recommend him enough."
"I was so fortunate to have Chad as my real estate agent. All throughout the process of selling my condo, he helped me getting through all the huddles and to manage expectations with such a professional attitude. His level of understanding, empathy, knowledge, and expertise made the whole experience so positive. My situation with my condo was quite challenging as I was being relocated out of the state and had very limited time to prep and sell my place. Chad has many attributes as an experienced real estate agent, but perhaps the one I valued the most was his "one step ahead of the game" kind of attitude.
Chad was always on my side working to make my home selling as simple and successful as possible. Results: It took Chad only two weeks to have my place under contract.
I do recommend Chad with absolutely no hesitations."
