Clients are saying:
"My husband & I just closed on a house in Oak Park, and Zak was amazing to work with. He took time to understand our goals and was extremely knowledgeable about the area and the homes themselves. Our house hunt took a bit longer than expected, but Zak felt like an advocate every step of the way and we never once felt pressured. I highly recommend him!"
"As first time home buyers, Zak made the process very comforting and he did a fantastic job picking us out the perfect house. Within one visit with Zak, he knew what style home we were interested in, qualities of the house we wanted to have and we were able to start looking at homes the next week. He is actually the one who suggested the current house we bought, solely based on his interactions with us and him knowing what we were looking for in a house. He was always one (or more) steps ahead in the process and made the entire process much less stressful and kept us organized throughout. He was always available to help whether in person or over the phone and we could not have asked for a better realtor. We highly recommend Zak to anyone looking to buy a house."
"Returned calls in a timely manner. Very professional, understood what we were looking for and found the house for us. Spent time finding listings and networking to find just the right house for us."
"We have worked with Zak on closing a couple of houses now and he is excellent. He is very helpful and diligent with his work. He knows the area's well and advises you based on your needs and budget."
"Zak has the expertise to help us find exactly what we're looking for in our price range. He's great at negotiating and well versed in the details of local real estate. When we had a question about a property outside of his area of expertise, Zak knew the contacts to reach out to for answers."
