"Very impressed with Brett's experience and attention to detail! There are many good realtors in the Chicago market however, Brett stands out, head and shoulders above the rest."
"This is the third time (one as a buyer and twice as a landlord) that I have dealt with Brett. I have found him to be professional, communicative and efficient. He has proven to have a knack for knowing what I want/need and has been able to deliver each time.Anyone needing a PROFESSIONAL Realtor should definitely consider Brett!"
"Mr. Novak carries himself in a very buttoned up profession fashion. He's a very consistant and reliable agent that'll go to bat for his client."
"Brett, Was beyond professional and always available to answer any question I had!It would be my pleasure to recommend him to everyone I know looking to buy or sell.Thank you for all your attention to detail!Lucy"
"Three days on the market and multiple offers, what else can I say? From square one we felt completely confident that we had made the right choice listing our home with Brett. He had complete knowledge of the neighborhood and all of its comparable listings. Armed with years of dedicated practice, He determined the exact right listing price and mapped out the best course of action. Throughout the entire process we could rest easy knowing that we were in good hands. Brett is a true master of his trade."
"Brett is easy to work with and was able to patiently an close investment deal that was beneficial for me/buyer."
"We loved working with Brett. As new home buyers, he always made himself available to chat (even for the smallest things). The home buying process can be overwhelming, but Brett was there every step of the way. From reviewing contracts to helping us find a lender to multiple walk throughs of the condo.We are so lucky our friend recommended Brett to us and would 100% recommend him to others! Thanks for all your help Brett!!"
"Brett is one of the best in this business. He is knowledgeable, always patient and provides excellent consult to keep the process moving. I would not use anyone else in the buying or selling of a property."
"Brett Novak is the best. He is hard working, professional and always effective."
"Brett was fantastic from start to finish. He gave me great advice and consultation as a first time home buyer. Brett stayed in contact with me at all times to ensure that I was not surprised by anything and provided recommendations for services when I needed them. All of his recommendations were also of the highest quality. For my first time purchase I got exactly what I wanted and am very happy with my purchase. The process was free of stress, confusion and uncertainty."
"As first-time home sellers and buyers, we needed someone to guide us through the new experience and Brett Novack turned out to be exactly the right person. He is fantastic.He was always quick to respond to our questions and needs and offered excellent professional advise. Brett managed the sale of our house and helped us find a condo, all with such ease and good humor that there was an absolute minimum of stress on our part. He is such a great guy that we always look forward to seeing and talking to him.We highly recommend Brett without reservation."
"I was moving to Chicago and only in town for a couple days to find a place. I couldn't have been happier with the assistance Brett provided. He was knowledgeable and never pushy. He would stand back and let me take things in, but then make sure that I noticed little details in each place we visited. And he was always so responsive to emails and on top of my requests. I would DEFINITELY use him again and recommend him to anyone in need of a broker!"
"Outstanding experience overall! Brett was extremely attentive to all of our concerns during the listing and sale of our condo in Chicago. He was always prompt in communicating and offered great advice without pressuring us one way or another. He made us feel as if we were his only clients. Thank you."
"very dedicated, attentive, and hard-working. will definitely use again and recommend to friends."
"From the start to the end, Brett was easily available to answer any of my questions about the process of both buying and selling my home. His knowledge and experience was key to the successful sale of my home. I have and will continue to recommend Brett to anyone looking for an agent."
"I was a first time home buyer. Brett made sure he was available for any questions and treated each one as important. He guided me through the entire process and made recommendations when I needed other services (mortgage broker, inspector, attorney, movers, etc.) Once I knew what I wanted / could afford he set up a time frame with me (because I had started my search a little early). The place I had bought was exactly what I wanted and I needed some negotiating to be done in order to have enough money at closing as well as additions to my new condo (washer and dryer and hardware for the cabinets) and Brett took care of all of that. From the moment I first contacted Brett he always made sure to touch base with me and he let me decide when to talk or meet up when I was just starting to look and when it got closer to the time frame I would like to put an offer on a place / close, Brett made sure to communicate more often with me. Once the offer was accepted there were about 45 days until close, and Brett made sure to check in with me just to make sure I was comfortable with everything, to see if I had any questions, to make sure I was all set up with electricity, gas, cable, and movers. In addition to all of that, he is very personable and easy to get along with so any time we would go condo hunting it was a lot of fun. I wanted to bring my parents along and he was always great with the extra company I invited along with us on the condo search. Brett made my first time home purchase a great experience!"
"Prior to working with Brett, my fiance and I began our home search process with a different realty agency. As first-time home buyers, we were excited by the prospect of finding the perfect home. Sadly, our experiences with the initial agency were extremely negative and - after several months of searching - we were discouraged by the service we received and our inability to find the place that we could call home. In the face of such a poor experience, a good friend referred us to Brett. From the moment we began working with him, our house hunt became fruitful, positive, and fun! Brett was attentive, timely, thoughtful, and extremely proactive. In just a couple of weeks, he identified and showed us that perfect home we had been seeking. Brett was also instrumental in walking us through the process of purchasing the home.Again, as first-time home buyer! s, we were anxious about the process and looked to Brett for guidance and support. As with the home search, Brett made negotiating for, and purchasing, our new home easy and enjoyable.We have nothing but wonderful kudos to offer Brett Novack. We could not be happier with the service he provided and would recommend him to family and friends without hesitation. We look forward to working with Brett again in the future and have no doubt that he will be our realtor for all future home purchasing/selling endeavors!"
"Being new to the city, we really had no idea of what we were looking for. Brett was very helpful in sending info on the units available for rent and he also did a great job at figuring the areas we would most enjoy. He was very quick to return calls and went out of his way to help get the lease agreement. I would definitely use Brett again and wish that we could trade our current agents in Atlanta for him!"
"We met Brett at a very difficult time in the housing market. We desperately needed to get out of our 2 bedroom/1 bath condo in Lakeview and had been previously trying to sell for about 2 years. As soon as we met Brett, who came highly recommended to us, we could tell he was different from all other agents that my wife and I had worked with. What sets Brett apart is his approach to customer service, willingness and industry knowledge to do whatever it takes to get the job done and unwavering professionalism. Not only did Brett help us sell our condo within 3 months of working together (the marketing materials from @properties were incredible) but he also helped us find our new house in Lincoln Square! He did the impossible in a such a volatile and unpredictable housing marketing. And beyond his professional accolades, Brett is just an absolutely incredible individual. You can tell that he genuinely cares about you and your family and I would, without hesitation, recommend Brett Novack to anyone looking for a realtor. Brian and Keri T."
"Brett is without question the best agent in Chicago. He is patient, kind and an absolute pleasure to work with. He worked hard to get me a great deal and supported me through a difficult transaction. I will refer Brett to everyone I know. Quite simply, He ROCKS!!"
"Brett is very professional and helpful. This was my first time buying a home, and I had no idea where to start. Brett was able to walk me through the entire process and answer all of my questions, and never got frustrated when I asked the same questions over and over again. I relied on Brett to guide me through everything, and he did an excellent job. He made himself available for me at all times of the day, every day of the week. I will recommend him to people I know who are looking to buy/sell, and will definitely use him next time I'm in the market."
"Brett did everything we wanted him to do without having to ask him."
"Brett is, in my estimation, the best possible realtor both for first time buyers as well as for those looking to upgrade. He knows the city inside and out. He helps you honestly assess your existing property as well as evaluate potential new properties. He is patient and works to ensure that you are getting exactly what you want. In the process, he is attentive, assertive when needed, and thorough. I can't imagine anyone in Chicago not using Brett. I have been passing his name along to friends and co-workers for over 10 years and I plan to continue referring him. Brett is second to none. If you are in the market for a new home, Brett will ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible."
"Brett was amazing to work with. My father and I buy real estate all over the country and my experience with Brett was the best I've seen yet. He will definitely be recommended to friends, and I too will use him the next time I'm making a purchase in the Chicago market."
"We originally met Brett over 3 years ago when he was highly recommended by a family member. His professionalism and dedication to our needs allowed us to enjoy the home buying process as a first time buyer, and became a dear friend over the years! It was a pleasure having him represent us in our sale, and we only wish we had stayed in Chicago to use him again!"
"Brett was fantastic from start to finish. He gave me great advice and consultation as a first time home buyer. Brett stayed in contact with me at all times to ensure that I was not surprised by anything and provided recomendations for services when I needed them. All of his recomendations were also of the highest quality. For my first time purchase I got exactly what I wanted and am very happy with my purchase. The process was free of stress, confusion and uncertainty. The selling broker was also from @ Properties, Jeff Graves. He was also very professional and accomodating. If I was not so satisfied with Brett I would recommend Jeff to anyone looking for a property in Chicago."
"Brett provided amazing service. His thorough knowledge of the Chicago market AND the real estate marketplace in general were invaluable. He was patient, yet still helped to guide us along. I can't imagine having a better, easier or more effective partner in the sale of our home -- he sold it in three days!I really can not say anything other than "he is simply the best!""
"Brett was amazing to work with. He was very knowledgable of the process and listened to what I was looking for. He provided assistance every step of the way, which was very much appreciated since I am a first time buyer. Every recommendation that he provided from mortgage company, movers, handyman etc...has been fantasic to work with. I will recommend Brett to any family and friends looking at buying or selling! Thanks Brett!!!"
