Clients are saying:
"Andre assisted me in purchasing a condo in Chicago. From our very first meeting he was super patient and helpful in explaining the entire process from start to finish as this was my first time buying a home. He was proactive in finding multiple properties that fit my wish list, needs, and location and was very prompt in setting up showings around my schedule. Andre has a vast knowledge of the market and neighborhoods and gave me honest, sound, and useful advice when narrowing down my choices. I never felt pressure to move forward on any property until I felt comfortable and he was always available to answer any questions/concerns I had. Everything from the negotiation process to the inspection and ultimately the closing went smoothly due to Andre’s consistent communication and explanation of each step. Even after completing my closing he has checked in to make sure I have settled into my new home happily! Overall buying a home can be extremely stressful but with his wealth of knowledge and thoroughness André made the process easy and fun. I would highly recommend André to any of my friends and family looking to purchase a home."
"Andre was amazing to work with. He really took the time to get to know my fiancé and I, and what we were looking for in a home. Everything he showed us aligned with our requirements, and we were able to find the perfect home after only a handful of showings. Andre is knowledgeable, professional, reliable, friendly, and I would absolutely recommend him to everyone."
