"Brian was great to work with. We live 1,000 miles away and his help getting our condo ready to put on the market was above and beyond what we could have ever expected. He made the entire process go extremely smoothly."

"Brian is the perfect package. It truly does not get any better than him... And I have dealt with my fair share of realtors from all over the country. He was always one step ahead of EVERYTHING which from a seller's point is beyond comforting. Hands down he is simply the best and I am perfectly pleased with my experience with him. I consider myself truly fortunate to have been his client!!!!"

"If I can give Brian 10 stars I would. He always, and I say ALWAYS made that extra step to help us out. He very patiently answered all our questions, explained the entire process to us, made suggestions (never pushy though), thoughtfully created a plan to get the most value for our home. He was there for us every step of the way- often times going above and beyond what is expected from him. I can never thank him enough for getting us through our home selling process. Thank you Brian, you are a rockstar!!"

"Brian was an outstanding broker! We had a very complex deal and we were impressed with Brian's confidence and tenacity to GET THINGS DONE. From start to finish in our multiple deals, Brian was extremely responsive, honest, persistent, and realistic, in addition to being a genuinely nice person. Brian clearly cares about his clients and he always made time for our questions/concerns no matter what time of the day. He possesses a level of expertise and attention to detail that he brought to every interaction with us, as well as other professionals involved in our deals. My wife and I had a wonderful experience working with him and would highly recommend him to our family and friends."

"Brian has an extremely strong work ethic. He communicates well and makes himself available every day of the week. He works hard to get everything taken care of. He's very easy to work with! I recommend him highly."

"Brian is always on top of every request, and can see the bigger picture when a bigger picture is needed. He is very responsive and proactive, which during a transaction can lead to the difference between completion and delays. This is why Brian has been and will continue to be my real estate broker."

"I would undoubtedly recommend Brian to anyone. Brian was referred to me after my brother, and a couple close friends also had a great experience with him as their Realtor. Brian is incredibly detailed oriented, and is a zealous advocate for his clients. He not only helped me find the right place, but also did an incredible job negotiating for us as well. If I ever need to buy or sell a home in Chicago, Brian is the first person I'm going to call."

"Brian is the consummate professional. I have worked with him now on three separate transactions, both buying and selling. He is efficient, responsive and incredibly diligent. His knowledge of the real estate market in Chicago is extensive and his suggestions helped us secure multiple offers and we sold our condos above asking price. For both condos we sold, he had us under contract in less than 1 week. His vendor recommendations have all been stellar. There's a reason why Brian is one of the top realtors in Chicago-- his personalized attention to every step of the buying and selling process is simply outstanding. I recommend Brian wholeheartedly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home-- he's the best!"

"Brian stepped into our home mid-way through a very stressful period of making significant changes to the house. From our very first meeting at the property, my wife and I were put at ease. Brian worked relentlessly at transforming it into a premiere Townhome that would eventually appeal to anyone who walked through it. He was on top of the entire sale from our very first conversation until we closed. He is a consummate professional, and I will most certainly recommend Brian to anyone interested in making a highly informed real estate decision."

"Brian was amazing. He worked incredibly hard to sell my condo for a price higher than expected. He was a pleasure to work with and was always available when needed. I would use him again in a heartbeat."

"Exceptional experience!Brian goes above and beyond and is best in class. We wouldn't ever use anyone else."

"There is nobody better at doing their job than Brian Grossman. He offers excellent advice and guidance, anticipates issues before they become problems, offers reassurance and instills confidence, and best of all, for the second time now, he has sold my home before it even hit the market! I wish I knew more people in need of a real estate agent because I really cannot recommend Brian enough!"

"Brian and Jenny sold my condo in 48 hrs for above list price, but what was most important was their responsiveness. They answer their phones 90% of the time and are quick to call you back if you hit their voicemail. They are as hungry as you are to sell your place and have excellent negotiation skills to get you top dollar. Will recommend them to everyone I know."

"Brian Grossman was an amazing agent to work with. He helped us every step of the way. He had great suggestions and sold our place in 1 week for above asking price. I would recommend Brian to anyone selling their home."

"Brian is the best. He goes beyond any expectation I may have had about what a broker can accomplish. From helping us prepare our property, to marketing, and completing the transaction Brian was very impressive."

"Brian is brilliant! we were lucky to get the most professional service!"

"High understanding of Lincoln Park market! out of the box thinking professional checking of his opinion by his peers. extremely detailed and requiring to help sellers' preparation phase. fully involved at all steps till closing. able to acquire his customer respect confidence towards friendship! congrats Brian. Well done!"

"Brian Grossman was nothing short of amazing. He worked incredibly hard and was able to sell our home. Brian was extremely professional and are very good at what he does. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to sell their home!"

"We thought Brian Grossman and his team were amazing. On our purchase he helped with negotiations and on his advice we were able to save about 25K on the house we wanted most. On the sale side he was able to sell our condo in 2 weeks and got us 2.5% MORE then the identical condo 1 floor above us that sold 1 month before us. All in all he was amazing. In addition to all that he was constantly available. He would call at 9-10 pm and work on stuff for us. He staffed every showing for us, and would give us feedback after everyone. I was thoroughly impressed all the way around"

"Brian was such a wonderful person to work with! He was so great with communication and made sure we always knew what was going on. He was very on top of everything and made us feel very comfortable putting our future in his hands! I would recommend him to anyone I could!"

"Brian Grossman simply exceeded our expectations. We have known Brian for a long time and known him to be a very respected agent, but working with him first hand was impressive. He knew how to negotiate, he knew how to counter an argument and he ultimately showed our property in the best light and got us our price. I would recommend Brian to any one that needs a savvy professional who gets the market and what your place needs to sell. We are working with Brian on our buy as well and he once again proved to us that there is no reason to use anyone but him or his team."

"I worked with Brian for 9 or 10 months until we found the right place. I was a very picky customer and he was with me the whole time. I gave him a laundry list of the things I wanted and he delivered on all of them. I ended up purchasing new construction and he was there the entire 7 or 8 months between earnest money and the closing. Great job!"

"Brian is excellent to work with, does all his homework, is very hard working and ultimately helped us get the best deal we could. He is extremely thorough in the pre-listing phase and this paid dividends for us with an accepted offer on the first day we listed. We will be recommending Brian to friends and family."

"Brian Grossman is extremely knowledgeable about his business, professional , and very friendly."

"Guided with sound advice and recommendations. Always patient which prevailed in the end. Not sure if I would have found the perfect place if it weren't for my amazing @Team!! Thank you!!!!"

"Brian was a tremendous asset and stands head and shoulders above the competition. He added value throughout the process, worked tirelessly, and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Brian did a masterful job marketing our property, procurring and managing multiple offers, and providing excellent advice all the way through closing. Brian worked seamlessly with our attorney and was a huge help in identifying issues early that allowed for a smooth and timely closing. My wife and I are absolutely thrilled with Brian and give him our highest recommendation."

""Brian helped us buy and sell a condo within a 2 year time period and we couldnt be happier with the service we received. Brian is a true professional who listens carefully to his clients and works tirelessly to make sure that they are happy in all aspects. Our nickname for Brian was the hardest working man in showbiz, because of his 24/7 efforts on our behalf. we ended up in a condo that had all we wanted, in the area we wanted and at the price we wanted.""

""I am a mortgage banker with the largest independently held mortgage bank in the Midwest. Ive worked with dozens of real estate agents throughout my career, and Brian Grossman stands alone. His knowledge of the Chicagoland real estate market is matched only by his outstanding service and attentiveness that he affords his clients. In the past four years that Brian and I have been working together, I have worked with many of his clients on the financing end. I have heard nothing but extremely positive comments in regards to Brians real estate knowledge and service provided. Brians clients can expect to have their thoughts, wishes and concerns heard, while receiving unparalleled real-estate knowledge and service. Whether youre a first time home buyer or a seasoned real estate investor, you cant go wrong with Brian Grossman.""

""Brian is a real estate agent who always puts his clients first. He always gives his personal attention to each of his clients. After a showing, Brian listens to the buyers opinions and offers his own professional and honest advice. His expert opinion helps guide the buyer in finding the property that is their perfect fit. He is extremely hard working and trustworthy and a great person to have on your side when trying to find the ideal property.""

""Brian is always so busy but manages to make us think that were his only customers. He is always accessible and goes out of his way to ensure that our needs are met and questions are answered. He also has our best interests in mind and contrary to some stereotypes of successful REALTORS® hes not pushy! Theres a reason we keep going back to Brian after over two million dollars in real estate transactions over the last several years, hes definitely proven over and over again that hes just that good.""

""I decided to work with Brian after firing my first agent. I went to college with Brian, so I originally didnt want to work with an agent that I already knew well. But after I hired Brian, I quickly realized how well he knew the business. It helps to be proactive, organized and responsive. But Brian also knows all the right questions to ask that home owners may not understand. Brian was also very professional and appropriate in the negotiation process. He got involved when necessary, but he also stood back and let the lawyers handle their business. I look forward to working with Brian again when I sell my house.""

""Brian is definitely a hard-working realtor. Hes always on the job, whether hes actually at the office, or just at home. He is very good at following up and keeping in touch with clients. He will never forget about you, hell always call you back and fit you into his busy schedule, somehow. Brian is very upfront and honest with his clients, and other realtors. He isnt afraid to point something out or bring up a controversial topic, if it is to the benefit of his client. He fights for his clients for what they want, and can usually get it. Brian is very knowledgeable in the housing market. Not only does he know the Chicagoland area well, but he knows the ins and outs of buying and selling places very well. He gives his clients great advice, whether it be about the brand of kitchen appliances, who to call for a good home inspection, or where you would put the couch once you decorate the place. I had a great experience working with Brian as my realtor thank you, Brian!""

""We are writing to express our gratitude to Brian Grossman for being such a tremendous real estate agent in the sale of our town-home. We are extremely grateful for his efficiency and dedication during tough market conditions. We had 3 deals fall through due to Purchaser issues and Brian was able to sell our home 4 times! Brian did an outstanding job of advertising our home in all the appropriate places and tons of traffic followed. Brian was very knowledgeable and able to answer many questions directly to potential buyers that otherwise could have taken days to get answered or may have otherwise been unanswered. We thought that was a very important aspect of completing our sale in todays market. Brian was a pleasure to work with and we would recommend him to anyone interested in selling/buying their home or property.""

""Our experience with Brian Grossman as my homes Listing Agent was nothing but exceptional. His pricing advice was spot on; the listing process was immediate with almost no time lag; he kept us continuously informed and involved; brought in more interested buyer traffic than I had hoped for in an extremely tough real estate market. He managed the negotiation process with the potential buyers impeccably and tactfully,and sold the house for the price we had originally hoped to get. Ive advised all of my friends in Chicago to choose Brian when they are ready to make a real estate transaction. He is the Best!""

""It has been an absolute pleasure working with Brian. To me, there are two things that clearly set Brian apart from other realtors: his knowledge of the real estate market and his commitment to excellent customer service. He understands what makes your home appealing to buyers and is on top of recent home sales within your community. His deep knowledge base of the costs associated with home improvements, helped me understand what I needed to do to update my home and what it would cost me before we listed on the MLS. Brian also provides excellent customer service. He is well organized and has excellent communication skills. He constantly gave me updates on the progress of potential sales. Brian goes to any lengths in order to make the sale! As someone who travels frequently and has currently already relocated to another state, Brian had taken on the additional responsibility of being my own personal unit Manager. To help me make home improvements prior to the sale, Brian had frequently used his personal vendor contacts to set up appointments, give directions, and oversee progress of projects that resulted in excellent work being done. Without Brian and given the current real estate climate, I am convinced that I would not have sold my unit at the price that I received without his expertise and diligence to make it happen.""

""Brian far and away exceeded my expectations when it came to dealing with an agent. While I knew he did good work before I started working personally with him, since he helped my brother close on a condo a few years ago, my appreciation for Brians hard work grew day by day. I would certainly recommend Brian to anyone looking for an agent to help with purchasing or selling a Chicago area home. He kept the lines of communication open and always informed me of updates and what the next step would be. The process can be overwhelming and daunting but working with a professional and well-informed agent made all the difference in the world and I would not have been able to close on a condo that I absolutely love without Brians help!""

""Brian came highly recommended to me and did not disappoint. He helped me identify target neighborhoods,translating the dynamic mortgage process, view every possible property together and ultimately navigating the closing process. Brian was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and friendly throughout. Having such a hands-on expert with me throughout the process was an integral part of my first purchase. I look forward to working with Brian again in the future!""

""Brian, we really enjoyed working with you, even in this horrible housing market. Thank you so much for helping us sell our townhouse. We believe your knowledge of the overall market, the immediate area and our townhouse community was the key to selling our home. We also appreciated your quick response to all of our questions. You truly made us feel like we were your only clients. We even saved some of the marketing brochures that you developed, because they were such a wonderful representation of our home. We would highly recommend you to anyone selling or purchasing a place either inside or outside of Wolcott Row. Thank you again for all of your efforts.""

""It was a real pleasure to work with Brian Grossman to sell our condo, he is a true professional and he gets the job done. He kept me informed from day #1 to the closing, he was on top of everything and took care of anything that needed to be. I would highly recommend Brian, and I will he was great.""

""It has been a pleasure working with Brian on the sale of our home. Brian is exactly what we were looking for in an agent, ambitious, professional, and understanding. His hard work & determination gave us the confidence that we would sell quickly. For example, all the showings which were requested from other agents, Brian made sure he was present to show our place rather than just leaving a lock box code for the other agent and was able to answer all questions in detail. We were also impressed with his sales track record. We highly recommend Brian to anyone buying or selling a home!""

""Brian has sold two different units for us in pur complex within the last three years. In addition to his commitment to his Clients, great Marketing ability and Aggressive work ethic, Brians unique knowledge of the community makes him the ideal choice for owners looking to sell their home. There is no better choice.He understands the unique elements of the community and the neighborhood, the layout and potential of each individual unit, as well as the differences between all the units in the community. Because he is also a homeowner, Brians honest testimonial about the development was a great comfort for our potential Buyers.Im happy to say that Brian delivered great results in both sale transactions for us and we highly recommend his services.""

""Brian Grossman brought us great success in an incredibly challenging and increasingly complicated market.His dedication and commitment to each and every detail throughout the entire process were second to none.Equally as impressive is his deep base of knowledge and understanding of the overall market.A home sale is a very long multi-faceted process, and at every step of the way I felt confident that I was working with an expert who knew all the nuances. Successfully selling in todays market requires a Broker who can go above and beyond and effortlessly hit all the curve balls that come. Brian Grossman is that type of Broker. We would fully recommend him to anyone in the market.""

""Brian was an amazing agent to work with -- he was instrumental in negotiating a very profitable return on my home.""

""A friend of ours referred Brian and we could not have been happier with his service. He was knowledgeable of the marketplace, understood what we were looking for and went out of his way to be available and responsive to our needs. We will definitely be using Brian and @properties in the future.""

""Brian was so amazing with both finding our new house and the sale of our current house. He kept in contact with us throughout every step of the way and was dedicated to finding us exactly what we wanted. We could not be happier with our experience and have already recommended him to friends and family.""

""Brian is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with and I have worked with a lot of them!""

""Brian will show you the money!""

""This is my second home purchase working with Brian and theres a reason I went back to him. Brian has superior knowledge of the current market and historic trends, and always has valuable feedback to provide. Brian is incredibly responsive and is always available. I know it was hard for him to meet us at all of the showings, but even after I told him he could skip a few, he always made himself available. I would and expect to refer him to family, co-workers and friends.""

""The prices in our complex had been fluxuating for several years due to the market and had a recent sale that was well below market expectations due to a divorce between the owners. Brian provides a very thorough assessment of the property and has a very creative approach when recommending some small upgrades to increase the marketability and appearance of your home.He was very professional throughout every step of the process and at times, I think he lived in our home more than we did due to the number of showings he was physically present at. It is hard to find someone who is willing to devote that much time to the sales process and doesn't fall back on the lock box or colleague approach.""

""Brian worked extremely hard to get my house sold. My sale was a complicated one, and he did amazing work. Constantly in contact with updates and always available for any reason. Given my circumstance, I am confident that the reason my house sold, and sold at a price I was happy with, was because of Brain's hard work, intelligence and experience. I have already recommended Brain and will continue to do do so. He would be an excellent choice for for anyone, but I would be especially enthusiastic when recommending him for a sale that might be a bit more complicated than average.""

"":My wife and I couldn't be happier with the level of service and professionalism that Brian exuded over the duration of our home search. Given the current state of the market with excess buyers and very little inventory to spread around, Brian's understanding of the market dynamics and most importantly his industry relationships with other brokers allowed us to navigate the crowds and land a condo that had everything we were looking for. I would unequivocally recommend Brian for both buyer and seller representation.""

""Brian was an absolute pleasure to work with. My husband and I were both extremely impressed by his industry knowledge and dedication. More importantly, he was extremely responsive and very personable. We're going to miss seeing him regularly. I would absolutely recommend Brian and hope that we have the opportunity to work with him again.""

""My wife and I have now bought 3 places and sold 2 places while using Brian as our broker. With this latest purchase, initially, we were concerned that Brian did not know the suburban market as well as he knows the city. Once again, Brian surprised us with his knowledge of the market and his willingness to go above and beyond to find us a place that fits for us. In a difficult suburban buyers' market, Brian proved our most valuable asset. He relentlessly contacted other agents to find us pocket listings and always went to bat for us throughout the process. Brian is the best!""

""As I have said before and have given to Brian, I could not have done any of this without Brian Grossman. He walked me every step of the way through my gut rehab, helped me pick out materials-even took me shopping more than once. When it came time to sell, due to Brian's marketing and sales skills, we had two offers on the first full day of showings-one full asking, all cash! He knows what's he's doing and can get the seller top dollar, if they take his advise. Forever grateful to Brian and would highly recommend him to anyone.""

""Our broker, Brian Grossman, was wonderful and helpful every step of the way. I would recommend him without hesitation and I plan to use him again in the near future.""

""Brian went above and beyond helping us complete this purchase... he was invaluable. Brian has become a great friend over the years and we've worked with him 3 or 4 times now. Every transaction we've done with him, we've walked out of the closing saying how luck we are to have worked with him due to his knowledge of the market, and all of the work he has put in for us. We will refer him to everyone that we know.""

""Brian is an outstanding broker. He makes each and every one of his clients feel like they are his number one priority. He is incredibly attentive and does absolutely everything in his power to help his clients get exactly what they want (on both the buying and selling end). He is extremely hard working, honest, knowledgeable, and passionate about his career. I would HIGHLY recommend Brian to anyone looking to buy and/or sell their place.""

""Brian knows real estate. He sold both our homes (2008 & 2012) in less time than we thought possible. He is extremely efficient and hands on every step of the way. He is easy to communicate with and very personable. We are now trusting him to find our dream house and we are confident that he will come through. I would definitely recommend Brian for a reliable and hard working agent.""

""Brian is a true pro. He knows our complex so well we knew we were in good hands. Brian coordinated a contractor to make repairs as well as a company to stage our home. We feel both of these steps were extremely important in the process. We found a buyer in less than a week so we believe Brian helped us do it right. We'd recommend him and would use him again in the future.""

""Brian and I have known and worked together for 7 years now, and I'm always impressed with his knowledge of the market, and the effort he affords to each of his clients. We felt good about the sales price that was negotiated and are very happy with the way the transaction went.""

""Brian is very detail oriented with great follow-up skills on even the smallest of items. He was willing to spend the time necessary to address all questions and concerns.""

""Brian was first class all the way around. His understanding of the marketplace and attention to detail is unmatched. He constantly followed up and had great communication throughout the whole process. I already have recommended Brian to others and will continue to do so in the future.""

""Brian did an amazing job of establishing a "buzz" around our townhouse before it was even listed. The combination of him building a solid pipeline of activity and helping us with suggestions to best stage our house helped us to be under contract in 5 days. His work ethic is hard to beat and it was a pleasure working with him.""
