Clients are saying:
"I actually met Mitch at one of my real estate closings. Naturally, we exchanged pleasantries and throughout the closing I kept feeling more and more comfortable with Mitch, not only with his professionalism but his knowledge and attention to detail. Being a part time, now retired Realtor for over 30 years myself, I have finally found an individual whom without hesitation I can rely on for all my real estate needs. He may say he was glad to find a new client, but I can assure you, I'm just as glad finding a great Realtor and someone I now call a friend. Thanks Mitch"
"After moving around so much I’ve had quite a few residences and therefore plenty of experiences with realtors. The list includes realtors in PA, IL, NJ… on both rentals and purchases. Mitch Gabel is second to none. What sets him apart is his patience, his ability to ask many questions, listen, and work in the buyer’s best interest. Having 2 boys born within 15 months of each other, we quickly found our new Family of 4 busting at the seams of our 2 BR townhouse. It was clear we needed a bigger place, preferably a single family home with 4+ bedrooms and some type of yard. We also recognized that our next house would hopefully be our home for the next 20+ years. And that’s where the challenge began.
Mitch helped us write a “must have list” and a “wish list”. He also paid close attention to our budgetary needs and our preferred locations – school systems, friends, parks, etc. Samantha (wife) and I agreed that we wouldn’t rush into a purchasing decision on the first house we liked. Mitch entered our requirements into the online MLS system. Several times each week houses that fit our profile were sent to us in the form of online descriptions and pictures. We spent many Saturday afternoons looking at houses.
Throughout the entire (somewhat lengthy by many standards) process, Mitch maintained his strong support of our needs. He was quick to point out weaknesses of a house, preventing us from making a poor buying decision. Mitch was also quite creative, helping us along by providing input, “…you know, you might want to consider…” We never felt rushed during the entire process. The end result being a nice house that our Family will enjoy for many decades. I am grateful to Mitch Gabel and highly recommend him to anyone in the Chicago area for any Real Estate needs."
"Mitch is always very professional and easy to work with. He is aware of all the necessary items required for the management company and responds quickly to emails and phone calls. I was confident he would handle the process without issue."
"From our first meeting with Mitch we were impressed with his knowledge and honesty. Over the course of 20 some years we have bought and sold nine homes, town homes, and condos in Illinois, Arizona, and California, so we do have some knowledge of what is a good, mediocre or bad agent. Mitch is by far head and shoulders above any agent that has ever represented us. His Professionalism, Knowledge, and Honesty sets him apart from any agent we have dealt with in the past. Baird and Warner is fortunate to have Mitch as a representative. If in the future we would have the need for an agent or were asked to refer one we would not hesitate to recommend Mitch."
"Thank you so much for all your help in selling our condo and finding a new home. It was quite an emotional process, but all along we knew we were working with the best so we never lost faith!! We truly appreciated your availability as well as your constant communication throughout the process. You definitely offer top-rate service and we look forward to recommending you to everyone we know!"
