As a full-time Realtor® and native Chicagoan, my mission is be your trusted resource and valued adviser through each step of the real estate process and beyond.
Since 2010, I have worked extensively with sellers and buyers on the sales of downtown highrise condos, as well as properties in the surrounding neighborhoods and suburbs. I also specialize in working with buyers, sellers, investors, landlords, and renters in real estate transactions spanning all price ranges. My negotiation skills, tools, knowledge and experience ensure I deliver the best price and terms on behalf of my clients. I also use electronic signatures for quick, easy, and convenient document transactions.
Prior to my time with @properties, I've spent my life navigating both the urban and suburban communities in Chicagoland as a sales and purchasing agent in product distribution. That unique experience has allowed me to provide clients with key insights into what each neighborhood has to offer, including interpreting the latest market data, recommending trusted vendors or simply where to get the best pizza.
I am a member of the local and national Realtors® associations and abide by the Realtor® Code of Ethics. I have lived with my wife and three children in the Tri-Taylor neighborhood near Taylor Street, just a couple miles west of the Loop and currently reside in Brookfield.
I pride myself in being extremely responsive and communicative to your texts, emails, and phone calls. Contact me any day of the week, day or evening, to ensure your real estate needs hit the Mark!
Clients are saying:
"Mark was great at helping me find a condo that meet my criteria so I was not wasting my time view properties I would not be interested in. Mark was quick to respond to questions/concerns I had about area or obtaining additional information to determine if I wanted to view the property in person, as my free time is very limited"
"I was very fortunate to meet Mark Michalek at an open house in Printers Row. When it was time to rent my condo, I asked Mark to represent me in the process. The best decision I ever made. On a scale of 1-5, Mark is a 5 star realtor..He paid attention to every detail and did not miss a beat. If I ever sell a property, I will definitely use Mark Michalek. Thanks for everything, Mark!!"
"I have used Mark to buy and sell my investment properties. He does a great job negotiating my deals. He's been very competent staying on top of my deals by making sure they keep moving along and close smoothly. It's very convenient that he uses electronic signatures instead of having me print out, sign, scan, and send back. I have referred my people to Mark and I will continue to use him."
"Mark was professional in every manner. He went out of his way to be available and to explain the process in a seamless manner. He showed us many options and gave us a lot of info about all the neighborhoods. He is very knowledgeable and knows a lot about Chicago--its incredible how he knows his way around. He is also a very nice and easy to work with. I would most definitely recommend Mark to anyone interested in purchasing a property. As soon as I hear of anyone looking for a realtor, I will definitely give them Mark's number!"
"I was very happy using Mark to sell my home. He got us multiple offers and a price above what I thought we could get for it. He was very accessible, responsive, and informative throughout the whole process. I also used Mark to find and purchase my townhome. He made himself available to my schedule"
