"I was searching for a place to rent and inquired about a property. Lisa is the ONLY agent that contacted me (and it wasn't her property) to see how she could help. After one conversation she knew exactly what I wanted and provided me more choices than I needed. She is so responsive and proactive. When I am ready to buy I would. It think of using anyone else and willl be certain to refer her to all my friends."



"As a first time home buyer, I was very nervous and didn't know much about what I needed to do. Alison made the entire process simple and easy. I felt comfortable from beginning to end. She is very knowledgeable about the city, buying process, and all necessary paperwork needed to purchase a home. She also provides great resources (mortgage lenders, lawyers, inspectors, etc). I would definitely would recommend Alison to anyone needing a real estate agent (especially a first time home buyer!). Thank you!"



"From start to finish Lisa was awesome! She provided fast and informative responses to all my questions and searched for more places to check out up to the day of the appointments. I ended up in a better place than I could have imagined thanks to Lisa."


"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Nicole! I had gone through 3 realtors before finding Nicole, and found her by chance off another listing. She made the looking and buying process enjoyable, and knew exactly how to not burn me out through the process. Nicole really took the time to get to know me as a person and find condos based on wants and needs I had. She even found a few that I wouldn't have picked by listing alone, but by getting to know me she knew I'd love them! She was a straight shooter (in a nice way), and very honest which I appreciate. I have already recommended her, and will definitely be using her for any home buying or selling needs in the future."



"Lisa was patient and professional through the whole buying process. She was knowledgeable about the various neighborhoods and followed up on all our questions. It was my first time buying, and she was my main resource for navigating through the paperwork. Thanks, Lisa!"



"Lisa was extremely helpful, kind, and proactively made sure everything was in order every step of the way."



"Working with Colette was a great experience. She has an easy style, treated me with respect, and she knows the city of Chicago well. She is intuitive and helped me find the perfect place within three weeks of the start of my search. She answered my questions frankly and honestly, and I felt confident in her guidance through a fairly complicated real estate environment. I enthusiastically recommend Colette to help you through your home search."



"Lisa was really helpful from start to finish. She worked with me as my preferences made slight changes, made us an efficient viewing schedule and when I finally found the place I wanted, was always available for my questions and helped every step of the way. She was awesome to work with and will use her again if I ever need a new place in Chicago."



"Anne was wonderful the entire time we were searching for an apartment. She listened to our needs and knew what we wanted before we did. Her responses to my emails, calls and texts were so fast that we were able to see properties quickly and put in applications right after. We found an apartment within 2 weeks of emailing back and forth, and we love it!"



"Lisa was super helpful and listened to what I was looking for. She sent me a plethora of options right away and kept in contact through the entire process. When I am ready to buy a place I am going to use Lisa. You should also. Great job on finding a home for me to rent Lisa."



"I was referred to Laura from a friend and was told that she was an amazing realtor. My friend was not wrong. Laura was extremely helpful and so friendly!! She made all my roommates and I feel so comfortable through all the stages of finding and signing a lease to our first apartment. I definitely recommend her to others when trying to find a perfect home. She's the best!!!"



"I am first time and was little nervous about find my first. Frombthe beginning Lisa was amazing. During our first phone call she was attentive and multiple question in order learn what I was looking. Even after helping find my dream home. She was able to set me up with a fantastic laywer and mortgage broker who where able to help me through difficult closing. She even text a few days before the closing to remind me to switch over my utilities."



"Colette was absolutely perfect. From our first conversation to closing, she was professional, knowledgeable of both my market and the business in general, but most of all she listened. I always felt that she put my needs and wants first. My time was valued and she did not waste one minute of it. From start to finish she worked to make the process as easy as possible, dare I say even fun."



"Kristin is very professional. She takes care every message promptly. She reminded me things that I may have forgotten. If I were her sister, she would treat me the same way. I did sell my property quickly, and I bought one that I am very happy with. She is very patient with me when I bought my new property."



"Awesome service as always, Lisa, thanks!"



"Very Helpful and Prompt response!!"



"Kristin Thompson did an amazing job. She advised us what we needed to do to best prepare our property. She showed us comps & helped us determine the best listing price. After 7 days we got an offer and she guided us through negotiations. Throughout the process she was professional and pleasant."



"Laura helped us find the right place within a week of searching. She was also very helpful communicating with the property management company to make sure we had everything accounted for during the application/lease signing process. She was honest and very knowledgeable about the areas we were looking in and she was a pleasure to work with."



"I have nothing but great things to say about Laura. Not only did she reply to all of my questions right away, but she was always outgoing and kind in her responses.

"Very professional with a touch of humor. Expert on Chicago, was honest and never tried to oversell"



"Lisa definitely stands out in my mind among the brokers I've met. My wife and I have had some disappointing experiences with brokers in the past in terms of professionalism and reliability. Conversely, Lisa was respectful, supportive, punctual, and effective. For example, our building's management can be deceptive in terms of fees and quite difficult to handle. Despite numerous hiccups, Lisa helped us navigate them with tact and went to bat for us on multiple occasions. This resulted in us avoiding $800 worth of additional fees. I would (and have) strongly recommend her to colleagues and friends seeking a top-notch broker in the Chicagoland area."



"Background:

I relocated to Chicago from the South. I lived in Atlanta and spent a lot of my time in Florida as well. As a result, I believe Ive been spoiled by Southerners and Southern Hospitality. Ive learned to expect good customer service.

After months of searching and dealing with bad customer service in Illinois, I was happy to meet Lisa. She found a nice condo in Uptown for me. The condo was bigger and priced less than other condos I was able to find on my own.

Lisa also provided an upscale experience while driving me around the area. She seemed to understand what I wanted and needed and I didnt have to explain it to her.

You should hire her!"



"Alison was so helpful and patient through the rental process. She helped us consider things we didn't even think of initially, and sincerely had our best interests at heart."



"Alison was an awesome broker to work with! Her professional insight was valuable and she made the home searching process quite enjoyable. My wife and I relocated from a different city and Alison's flexibility to accommodate our schedule was much appreciated. She was also able to refer us to multpile service providers who were all very professional and easy to work with. Thanks again for making our home buying experience so easy!"



"Alison was great to work with; her expertise was invaluable throughout the process, and I will definitely recommend her to any friends looking to buy property in Chicago. She was extremely organized as well, which was very helpful along the way."



"Alison and Sonia did a fantastic job dealing with these properties!!"



"We have had a number of real estate transactions over the years and Alison provided us with the best service we have ever received, by far. She is knowledgeable, responsive, and diligent. I highly recommend her."


"Nicole is great! She is professional, knowledgable, and energetic about putting you into exactly what you want. I will definitely stay in touch with her regarding future purchases."


"Kim was always attentive, interested, open and honest about my options throughout the process of finding a new apartment in Chicago. Kim's thoughts on locations and different buildings she'd seen before helped me make a good choice. I would recommend Kim to anyone looking for a helpful, responsive broker in the city!"


"As a new resident to Chicago, Matt was quick to make me feel comfortable during my condo search. He was always easy to contact, efficient and went out of his way to do things like pay for my parking spot while we were viewing a place. He would book showings the same day I requested them. I would recommend Matt to any of my friends and family looking to move in and around the city. I am very pleased with my new home and he made the long process fun and exciting."


"I've worked with a number of realtors previously, but Matt sets himself apart by going above and beyond to find you the perfect home. No matter what time of day or day of week, Matt has made himself available to help me throughout this process.I've recommended Matt to both colleagues and friends and look forward to working with him for many years to come."


"Matt was fantastic to work with. He was so knowledgeable and constantly available when we needed him. He made selling our property such an easy process and helped us out in so many ways.

You will be beyond pleased at the level of service you will get."


"Matt was an amazing broker! He really listens to your needs and shows you what you want to see. He is also just an all-around friendly and nice person. He is always there to answer questions when you need him."



"Tricia was absolutely amazing! I talked to her on the phone once to describe what I was looking for and within 20 minutes she had sent me emails with great listings! She was a lot of fun to look at apartments with and asked questions that I never thought about which was really helpful! We looked at apartments and two days later I signed! She helped me through every step of the way which was so great as I was a first time renter and did not know the process. I would absolutely recommend Tricia to absolutely everyone, she is the best!"

"Nicole is the best agent that I could've gotten - I will definitely be recommending her to all of my contacts!"


"Nicole was top notch from start to finish. I don't know how we would have gotten through this process without her help and expertise. It's a tough market and you need someone who is on top of it in order to find the home of your dreams which is exactly what she did. She was always very quick to reply, had excellent referrals and navigated the choppy waters of real estate masterfully. Thanks!"

"Matt was great! From finding me many places to look to at, he was extremely helpful and followed up with me even after I had already signed a lease . Would definitely recommend !"


"Matthew is just AMAZING. He found us the perfect place!Being new to Chicago, I was grateful for his thoughtful, grounded counsel on neighborhoods, accessibility, etc. And given our rather last-minute apartment search, I particularly appreciated his patience, proactiveness, and responsiveness.So grateful to him!"



"It was a privilege to work with Colette. She is knowledgeable and helpful in every way. I was so overwhelmed with the task of looking for a new place to live, I gladly trusted Colette to help me find the best place and to negotiate the best deal. It was a load off my mind to let her handle it for me and to know I was in the best hands possible. I am so pleased with my new home and I owe it all to her."



"Colette was super patient and always there to help. She got us exactly the place we were looking for."



"Colette was 1,000% supportive throughout this process. I'm a first time homebuyer And was impatient, emailed a gazillion questions, and pestered her like crazy! She was patient, responsive, and professional! I highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a home! 5 stars!"



"I was very pleases with my agent Colette Adams. She was very patient and helpful. She answered any questions i had. She made me feel extremely comfortable with my decision. She was very honest about everything and helped me through all the steps of my sell."


"I worked with Kim recently to find my condo in the South Loop. She was amazing and patient with me as we made our way through my options. And, when I found "the one";, she was beyond supportive in helping me make sure that it became mine. We endured a few hiccups along the way and, while I was starting to panic, Kim was calm and reassuring - which was so very helpful to me. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a hands-on realtor who will go above and beyond to help you navigate both the market and the closing!! :-)"

"Mr. Neistat was extremely helpful and courteous. This was our first sale and he went out of his way to explain the process and reassure us is we had any reservation. My sale had complications with a uncooperative tenant and Mr. Neistat understood and didn't show any frustrations, even if he had any. He even took the time to deliver, right to show notices for us, since we live at least an hour away. Mr. Neistat's services were far and beyond my expectations. We would gladly work with him again! Thank you so much Matt."

"Laura is wonderful. She was very honest with us about the properties (i.e. which ones she thought we would actually like, the issues with various locations) and fought to get our lease started a whole month later than the listing stated. Plus, she was very communicative throughout the whole process. I would recommend her to everyone!"

Laura went above and beyond working with the landlords to accommodate our needs. She was a pleasure to work with and I would reccomend her to anyone looking for a new place to live."

She was very personable and kind and knew all questions we should be asking the lessor. Overall, Laura has made my renting experience quick and easy, which is a miracle honestly. And helped us find the most amazing apartment. The apartment fits all of our needs. I will definitely be keeping in contact with Laura for any future renting or buying needs."

The next Saturday she took me to half a dozen places that fit my criteria and one of them was perfect; I'll be moving in this June.During the process Nicole demonstrated great knowledge of the various neighborhoods we visited, and of the real estate market as a whole. My impression was that Nicole has more experience, education, and passion in her field than most of her peers. I will recommend her to friends."

She returned my call to list almost immediately, we met soon thereafter to view the property, she had the property professionally photographed in its most flattering light, she has people to refer for property improvements, she followed through on every promise, kept me up to date on showings and secured a tenant within 30 days. Lisa was always positive and upbeat about her ability to get the job done soon. As a result, I was able to not worry.I am grateful to have met her."



"Lisa is a very professional, generous, and motivated individual. She puts her clients first. I was very impressed from the first meet and greet. She sat down and listened to what I was looking for in an apartment and the following day we had 5 showings. I would highly recommend Lisa to any friend or family member who is looking to rent or buy. Her enterprise is without question superior. Thank you Lisa for finding a place I can call home!"

I recommend her if you need or have a place to rent, buy!"



"Lisa is a fun and professional individual dedicated to finding you the best home within your "wants" and "needs." She is constantly searching for you and working to find you exactly what you want.

We would definitely recommend Lisa to everyone!"

"I've worked with Sonia 3 times now; 2 sales and one purchase and I never have any doubts about how amazing she will be. No matter what price point you are working with, she treats everyone like a million bucks. I've referred her to several co-workers and they've all raved about her services as well. Right now i'm renting but if I decide to get back into the housing market, Sonia will be the first person I call."

"Let me just say that Lisa is a wonderful agent. She made our apartment search a very smooth process. My roommate and I came from across the country and were a bit hesitant initially, but Lisa was punctual to our first meeting. She also did a lot of planning and preparation prior to our meeting. We had the opportunity to look at 40+ listings from which we selected about 8 to visit in person, which certainly made our search more effective, rather than either her or us showing up empty handed to our first meeting without any solid gameplan. Lisa made the visits easy for us by having keys ready and driving us to every site. Additionally, once we made a decision, she helped us move through the application process as quickly as possible to secure our lease."



"I would like to Thank Lisa Magidson for her up and beyond service. Moving can be one of the most stressful times in a persons life. As in our case we are new to the Chicago area and this would be our second move in two months, due to our first experience from broker to agent to flooding home was a complete disaster. Lisa assured us that she would find us the perfect place. She was patient with our needs and was such a joy to work with. Her kind and genuine care was such a breathe of fresh air. She listened to our needs and always had a positive attitude. So to say that we are happy with this agent is an understatement. Thanks again Lisa, And @properties you have a asset and a gem."



"Lisa knew exactly what we wanted. She took the time to get to know our wants versus needs and what we'd absolutely not be interested in. When nothing was coming up with our original requests that was worthy of renting, she stepped outside of the box and found a perfect match for us! We love our new place and loved working with her!"



"Lisa was extresmly helpfull and quick to find places that met my needs"



"Lisa is amazing! She was so helpful every step of the way and made sure finding a new apartment was as seamless as possible. From setting up appointments to lease signing, she was always there to help. She really cared about making sure I was happy and that things were easy for me. Lisa was the best broker I've ever worked with!"



"Lisa was awesome! She was so quick at responding to all of my messages and ensuring my requests for a new place were all met. She drove us around the city to look at places and was genuinely excited to be helping us and to find us an AMAZING apartment. Am definitely keeping her contact information in my phone for the future!"



"Lisa was amazing to work with. Shes very available, persistent, and doesnt waste time. She gets things done. From my very first email I knew I was in good hands. This girl knows how to hustle. I would for sure work with her again and recommend her. Thanks!"



"Lisa was amazing to work with! We had very specific guidelines for what we wanted in an apartment, and she kept her search for us focused to those things. She is extremely responsive and works in a very timely and efficient manner, which we found so helpful in our search for our new home. I have already referred her to a friend based off of my experience, and would do so again!-J. A."



"Lisa Magidson, agent of @properties has gone above and beyond what I expected from a broker. She worked hard to find me a place that I can call home in Chicago while was still in Denver. I felt that my needs were top priority to her. Very professional!"



"Lisa was great to work with. I appreciate her effort to respond to my requests for showings in a timely manner!"


"Nicole was terrific -- always on top of what was going on in the market and with our place, and made it really easy for us. Total professional, super responsive and a real value add!"



"Anne has helped us find our home. We love our new apartment. Anne is a great professional. Caring, understanding and patient! We will recommend her to all of our friends.Thank you Anne!"



"Matt is knowledgeable, quick to respond, and communicates effectively."


"We had been looking for rentals with no success for six weeks when we met Kim. Frustrated with the rental market, we expressed an interest in purchasing our first home. Kim helped us realize that this was a reachable goal. She lost no time in guiding us through pre-approval and property searches. Beginning our search on Monday, we had a signed contract on a property we loved by Friday. Kim was extremely capable, proactive, and supportive throughout the process, making sure everyone had the information needed to reach each milestone. We closed six weeks later without hiccups. I'm not sure if we would have felt comfortable enough to buy our first home if it weren't for Kim. We were so happy with the job she did, we referred our friends to her and they are closing on their first home later this month."



"Nicole has always gone out of her way to help myself and friends find high quality rentals at affordable prices. She always listens to my input and makes suggestions around my needs. I appreciated her proactive approach and look forward to working with her again. Thanks!"



"Anne was wonderful! I thought that it would be so hard to find an apt from out of state and she made the whole process smooth and easy!"


"Matt was amazing. I can't describe how happy I was that he was my realtor. He went so far above and beyond his actual responsibilities and even assisted with follow up activities for the sale of my old home. He is an asset to @properties and I will recommend him to all future transfers to the Chicagoland area. Great guy, awesome realtor!"


"Kim is everything a broker should be. Kind, funny, patient and attentive to every last detail. She is a joy to work with, and we recommend her to everyone we know!!"


"It is with great pleasure that my husband and I write this recommendation for real estate agent, Nicole Duran. We met Nicole through a family member which gave her great reviews. From the beginning we experienced top-notch realty expertise. Nicole helped us find not one but two great homes in the location we wanted. At times when we felt stressed, her professionalism in carrying out her responsibilities as our agent were beyond reproach.She was always available to us for questions on the weekend, during the evenings on the phone and via email.Were pleased to provide our highest recommendation of Nicoles services."



"Matt was so great! He completely understood and respected my qualifications for a new apartment, quick to respond to questions, accommodating to my schedule for showings and able to arrange showings quickly so I didn't miss out on any opportunities."



"Working with Anne was wonderful. She was professional, responsive, and fun to work with. I had seen around 40 properties through other brokers, Craigslist, etc. but it wasn't until I worked with Anne that I found the apartment I wanted. There was a lot of interest in the property I chose and a high chance that I wouldn't get the apartment, but thanks to Anne's persistence and commitment, I was able to lock it down. I would absolutely recommend her to anybody who is looking to work with a broker."


"Kim was wonderful to work with while searching for our rental. She was very professional, helpful and knowledgeable about the inventory in our desired areas. We would definitely work with her again!"


"Nicole is a GREAT broker. She provided us with amazing service and support throughout the process, to closing and beyond."


"Matthew was responsible and provided useful guidance throughout the entire listing process."


"Kim is awesome, efficient, made a hard process much easier, and gave us great advice on our loan process. I give her a gold star and would highly recommend her to anyone buying a first home."


"I have hired more than 10 realtors in the last seven years, needless to say, after working with Nicole I did not need to look anymore. She is very professional, consistent and above all reliable."


"Mr. Neistat was extremely helpful and courteous. This was our first sale and he went out of his way to explain the process and reassure us is we had any reservation. My sale had complications with a uncooperative tenant and Mr. Neistat understood and didn't show any frustrations, even if he had any. He even took the time to deliver, right to show notices for us, since we live at least an hour away. Mr. Neistat's services were far and beyond my expectations. We would gladly work with him again! Thank you so much Matt."


"Kim was a pleasure to work with. She really cared about us finding a home that was a fit for our needs and wants. As a first time homebuyer, she made the process go as smooth as possible by staying top of the other parties involved. I would definitely recommend Kim to my friends and family."


"I highly recommend Nicole if you are looking to buy a place. Nicole is very thorough, energetic, professional, quick in responding & getting appointments scheduled (something you definitely need when you are buying a home in a market that has multiple bids). We enjoyed working with her!!"


"Matt was knowledgeable and responsive throughout the buying process."



"We were VERY satisfied with Kim's help throughout this entire process. She was great at responding promptly and managing all the moving pieces to ensure a smooth close. We would highly recommend her to our friends and family looking for a broker."



"Matt has been great. He listens to what you want and produces results. He really made the whole process nice and easy. @properties has also been great. From the moment we walked into the place we chose to the lease signing, everything has been seamless. Thanks for everything!"


"Kim is THE best! We were looking to make our long-anticipated move back to city life after raising our family in the suburbs, and were thinking it would take some time to find our dream home. After the first time out, Kim understood my taste and targeted the subsequent showings accordingly. Not long after that, she showed us the condo that I am writing this recommendation from - with a BEAUTIFUL view of the lake, Soldier Field and Navy Pier! We wouldn't be here without Kim! Her professionalism, kindness, caring and authenticity made her a PLEASURE to work with. While we do NOT plan to move from this dream home EVER, I would HIGHLY recommend Kim to anyone in need of an AMAZING real estate agent."


"Matthew initially responded to a request on a potential unit we wanted to rent. He was so easy to talk to and was not pushy, we felt very comfortable from the beginning. He walked us through all the scenarios with carrying a mortgage and looking to rent a bigger place and even selling our current home. Each step of the way he would check in with us to make sure everyone was on the same page. We appreciated his patience and easy approach while we searched for a new place. He was also great at communicating and answering any questions we had. He was very thorough and well informed regarding the Chicago real estate market. He went above and beyond what we would have expected from a realtor when we were selling our place. He assisted in every aspect, not just in preparing our unit for the sale, but also the moving company and selecting the right attorney. If we ever decide to buy or rent again, Mathew will be our realtor."



"As an out of town buyer, we needed a little extra help. Kim was there for us!"



"Matthew was very professional and timely. He was extremely patient with me in my decision making process and for that I give him great revues!"


"As a first time home buyer, I could not have asked for a better broker to use. Kim was knowledgeable, friendly, and on top of every step. She was very responsive and was able to get me a great deal on my first home. If I ever purchase another home in the Chicago, Kim will be my first call."



"Matt was the most patient, kind and communicative realtor. He understood exactly what we wanted and delivered. After signing an initial lease and it falling through, he continued to search for a place for us and found an even better one! We will definitely be referring him to anyone looking for a new place to live. Before finding Matt, we dealt with very uncaring realtors who just sent any and all MLS listings. They were also very difficult to schedule with. Matt went through the listings and made sure each one was worth looking at before sending and was super easy to schedule. He made us feel like we were the only ones he was taking care of. Super great guy!"


"I would highly recommend Kim Brychel for all real estate agent needs in the Chicago area. Kim was an incredibly diligent, attentive, and expert realtor in our condo search. Without Kim my wife and I would have never found the incredible condo we did in such a short period of time. A great example of Kim's going above an beyond was her willingness to accommodate our coming in from out of town and booking some 8 showings a day when we were in town. Kim also helped us, as buyers that were new to Chicago, to understand the neighborhoods and markets though use of comps and her personal experience. Kim is the ideal realtor in her knowledge of the market, punctual and clear communication (very important in a realtor...), and friendly personality. We will, without a doubt, be using Kim for all future real estate needs and can say that I give her a high recommendation any chance I get."



"In the 10 years I have lived in Chicago,(including six different apartment searches) Matt Neistat is the most patient, helpful, and professional rental broker I have ever had the pleasure of working with! My boyfriend and I worked with him for months- changing our original move-in date and search terms, but nothing ever ruffled his feathers and we found a wonderful place in a building that we love. Thank you, Matt!"


"Kim is a highly professional and personable agent who excelled at helping us through every step of our first home buying experience. She took the initiative to contact us and set up listing alerts based on our MLS browsing, which was a great first impression. She was always there for anything we needed, and went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home for us. During every part of the process Kim was super easy to work with, and never made us feel uncomfortable or pressed us in any way whatsoever. She is absolutely on top of her game, and we felt 100% confident as her clients from the very first showing all the way through to the closing of our first condo. Can't recommend highly enough."



"Matt communicates very well and frequently with clients. I have already referred him to multiple people looking to move around the downtown area."


"Kim is one of the hardest working agents I've met out there! She will work hard for you and get you the results you need. Another thing I like about Kim is that she's always easily available to answer questions. Even if she doesn't know the answer herself, she will find someone who does. She's also very resourceful and has great recommendations from attorneys to mortgage agents. Overall, Kim is a blast to work with and is very personable and she will get the job done for you fast!"


"Kim is an excellent real estate agent, and I would highly recommend her. When I was originally working with Kim my intent was to buy a condo, but when I decided to rent, she was more than willing to help me find the perfect place. When I chose to buy a condo the following year, Kim was readily available and eager to help me find the perfect place. When the place I chose turned out to be a short sale, we knew there would be plenty of challenges, but Kim took them on head on, and I couldn't be happier. There were many delays that Kim needed to deal with which were not her fault (the nature of short sales), but she dealt with them professionally and knew all the right ways to keep us moving ahead. I was very impressed with her balance of professionalism and knowing how much to push the sellers agent, bank, and lawyers to keep us moving forward, without looking too aggressive and pushy. If you're looking for a real estate agent, look no further than Kim."


"Kim excelled at helping my husband and I a) figure out exactly what we wanted and b) understand what was possible in our prince range. We were moving into the area from out-of-state, so we relied heavily on her area expertise, ended up finding in awesome place in the perfect neighborhood, and all in just a couple weekends of showings. Couldn't recommend Kim more highly."


"Highly recommend our broker Kim Brychel. What a life saver! Helped us find an apt from across the country. Super responsive and attentive. Very professional. Difficult to find a good rental broker, but she is the real deal. Would definitely return to work with her when we are looking to buy."


"Kim is an extremely friendly and reliable real estate broker. She worked extremely hard to make sure that I ended up with my dream apartment even when it seemed like it might not work out. There were also a lot of hiccups in the post-lease process (not on her end) that she worked with me to solve even though technically her part was done. Kim truly made sure I was happy and well-taken care of. I have worked with other brokers in Chicago that weren't nearly as professional as her - I would highly recommend."


"I would highly recommend Kim Brychel for your real estate needs. She was extremely focused on our needs from day one and was always responsive. The process was smooth and we found exactly what we were looking for."


"Kim was a joy to work with! I found her to be more attentive and helpful than any realtor that I have worked with before. She was extremely patient showing me many different places and was really considerate, making suggestions when she thought a certain listing should be considered. She has great taste and was really helpful at weighing out the pros and cons of each building and apartment. I would recommend Kim to anyone looking for a realtor because she was attentive, professional but also just a nice, genuine person that has the best interest of her clients in mind."



"Sonia was a great to work with throughout the home buying process. She is very direct and forward about what she thinks and what she values something at. She is also insightful in giving ideas of what could be improved or upgraded to give the place more value. When we decided to put in a bid for our condo she was up late on a Friday working with us to get a bid in and even recommended great steps to make our bid more successful. She is always prompt with her e-mails or texts if you need her. We loved working with Sonia and would love to work with her again if we ever decide to leave our amazing new condo."


"Matt was an excellent broker. He was extremely responsive to all of our questions and went above and beyond to ensure that we found a property that we liked. Even after we closed, he has helped us with things we need like finding repair men, etc. I would highly recommend Matt as a broker."



"Sonia was a real partner in our search for a new home - she was always active, taking the time to visit properties before sending them to us, bringing a ton of local knowledge and most importantly, getting to know us and what we wanted. She acted as an extension of us. We truly appreciated her insights and support - would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!"



"Nicole was great to work with as we bought our first home! She answered all of our questions promptly and thoroughly. She gave us helpful advice and honest feedback. I highly recommend working with Nicole and @properties!"



"Matt assisted in my very first home purchase. He explained every step and was very professional. Great communication skills! Thanks for allYour help!"



"Matthew is an amazing realtor! He is able to advise the client throughout every step while maintaining great negotiating power. His professionalism enabled us to negotiate but he also protected our position of not giving in. I felt he truly understood our position, goals, and values while enabling our ability to buy our dream house as well as sell our current house for the profit we deserved."


"Nicole is the best agent I ever worked with! She is professional, honest and put the best interest of her clients as the top priority. I purchased my investment property through Nicole and would do it again."



"Nicole was excellent. She is great at what she does and is an incredible asset to your company. Thank you again Nicole and we will highly recommend you in the future. Erik and Kuri"



"Matt was easy and exceptional to work with when finding a property. We are moving from out of state which can be stressful but thanks to Matt it was actually FUN. He has a great understanding of Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. We always felt taken care of by him and wouldn't recommend anyone else."


"Nicole was great! She really listened to me and worked to find properties that were in my price range and had the characteristics and features that I was looking for. She was also incredibly helpful through the buying process. She was very communicative and made sure I knew what was going on every step of the way. She made what could have been a very stressful experience fun and easy."


"Nicole is the most amazing realtor. She knows what and how I want everything and she has NEVER let me down. I have now purchased a total of 3MM in real estate through Nicole and as long as she is alive she is my realtor!!!"


"Working with Matt was nothing short of a pleasure! Never have I met someone who was so invested in making sure that I ended up happy, and that the process was as easy and stress free as possible. He asked a lot of questions to make sure that the properties I looked at met my needs and we didn't waste any time. In fact, he had even guessed that the building I ended up in would be my favorite based on my preferences, but still made sure that I saw lots of other properties just so I could be sure that I was making the right choice.What I appreciated most was that he never told me it wasn't possible to find what I was looking for in a certain area within my budget, he worked to find a way to make it happen. He never gave up, and because he knew what my needs were, he took it upon himself to research whether or not certain places met those needs ahead of time.He made me feel like I was the only customer he had! It was crazy how on top of everything he was...I have no idea how he does it. He always made himself available and answered any question I had so thoroughly and quickly. He never seemed annoyed or frustrated with me, or like there was something bigger or better he could be doing. He was incredibly personable and I feel like he genuinely cared about me as a person rather than just cared about me finding a place.Matt took the extra time to send recaps afterwards when we looked at several places within a day, and would even offer up the opportunity to go back and see any of them since he knew this was an important decision for me. Because he was so genuinely invested in helping me find a place I loved, I never got a sense that going back to a place or seeing what else was available was putting him out in any way. He always did it with a smile and great attitude. He also never made me feel like I had to select one of his listings or that I would have wasted his time if I didn't, which was a huge relief. He simply just wanted to make sure I was in the best place for me, and that meant the world to me!He was also incredibly knowledgeable about each and every place we went to see, even if it was one he hadn't been to before. He was up to speed on how certain things compared to other buildings in the area and you could tell he does his research...leaving me feeling much more confident and comfortable making a decision.When I finally selected a place, he walked me through the process thoroughly and went out of his way to ensure that it was as simple for me as possible. He even came to pick up the checks from my office so I didn't have to go out of my way to do it, which was a huge help and one less thing I had to worry about.Matt was genuinely invested in helping me, no matter what it took. Despite not knowing him at all before this process, I felt like I was working with a trusted friend who wouldn't quit until I was happy and got the best outcome possible. Working with Matt was so pleasant because I felt like I was not just "another client," but truly like I was a person whose needs mattered and he would put in every effort to understand them and make sure they were met. It's rare to find someone like Matt, and I'm already spreading the word about how incredible he was to work with to all of my friends and family!"


"Matt did a fantastic job. Suggested and then quarterbacked our remodel so we could get sell our place at a good price fast. Would highly recommend him."


"We were referred to Matt a year or so ago for our rental and were very impressed with his knowledge of Chicago living and patience with us to find the perfect place even though we were just renting. Now that it was time to buy, Matt really went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I were happy with our purchase (and we are extremely happy!). Matt will always make sure he has time for you and will work around your schedule. He always is availabe to answer any questions you have. He understands your home desires and sends you a vast selection of properties that fit the mold. Yes, it is most important that we are extremely happy with the final result! But Matt makes the whole process fun! You can tell that he really loves his job and helping people find happiness!! We would definitely recommend him to friends and family going through buying or even renting a home in the Chicago area."



"Matt showed drive and determination in finding a home for us in Buena Park. He quickly learned what we were looking for and didn't waste our time by showing us places that were too small or out of our price range. Matt stuck with us and helped us find a home that was right for us and negotiated a lower rent price with our new landlord. If you're looking for a broker that will get to know you and help you find your next home, look no further than Matt, and he'll find it for you."



"She really knew the area and was very helpful in finding me what I was looking for. She made herself available 24/7 and answered all questions I had."



"I would recommend our realtor to everyone I know who is in the market to sell or buy a home. Trisha is there for you at every turn with suggestions and recommendations, she truly is a professional."


"There are just not adequate words to describe my respect, appreciation, and admiration for Matthew. He is absolutely everything you would want in a broker, but more importantly in a friend. Matt helped my parents and I find an incredible and affordable one-bedroom in River North for me to live in throughout graduate school. I just moved to Chicago from Boston and knew relatively NOTHING about the city and Matt took the time to get to know me and my family, and everything about what we were looking for. He was transparent, patient, respectful, appropriate, and kind throughout the entire process. Matt know everything!!! I surely could not have gone through this process without him."


"Fantastic! Matthew impressed a group of seasoned, grizzly veterans. EVERYONE who came in contact with him (the lender, the lawyers, the building reps, the inspector, the appraiser) asked who this guy was and commented how impressive he was. Not often (or ever) seen with a broker! I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Matthew. Great job! Thank you!"



"Matt was awesome in helping us find our first home. He's got an immense knowledge of the city, is honest and always protected our interests throughout the whole process. I will be recommending him to everyone looking for a home!"


"It's hard to imagine a more attentive, responsive, informative advocate for my interests than Matt. He patiently explained my options every step of the way, making sure I understood the future implications of each decision, so I could make well-informed judgements. When I needed to move quickly he was ready, and when I needed more time he stepped back. He earned my trust throughout the process, and facilitated a smooth closing, setting me up for success. It was clear his prime motivator was the well-being of his client. I'll be calling him in the future, and recommending him to family and friends."


"Matt has helped me throughout the past four years with multiple properties. He exudes professionalism and integrity and always goes above and beyond for his clients. I always recommend Matt to my colleagues and friends, and will continue doing so."


"This is the third time I've worked with Matt, and the first time it was for a purchase. Matt is a true advocate for his clients, working tirelessly to get the best outcomes. He's always reachable quickly, and provided great recommendations for lawyers, inspectors, etc. to work with. It's clear that every home-buying experience is unique and always comes with unexpected challenges and hitches along the way; unavoidable parts of the process. With Matt we always felt we had a trusted adviser to work through these items with, and never felt lost or rudderless. I can't recommend Matt enough and hope to work with him again on the future when the next phase in my homeowner-story happens."


"Matthew is an incredible agent and has been a great resource to me for many years now. The first few times we worked together, he helped me find apartments while I was renting in Chicago. Each time, we ended up signing a lease on an apartment that exceeded all expectations. After getting married, my wife and I decided it was time to look for a house in the suburbs and knew that Matthew would be an incredible resource. I went into the process very close-minded view of where I wanted to live and what to expect. Matthew really helped me expand my views and because of this, we ended up finding the perfect home...a new construction property (something I had not previously considered). Matthew really has a tireless work ethic. He answered every time I called him, responded to emails promptly and adjusted his personal and professional schedules in order to be there for us when we needed him for meetings, walk-throughs, closing, etc. With all of his knowledge and experience, Matthew really made building a new house an easy process and took a lot of stress out of the equation. Without a doubt, I would recommend everyone I know (and those I don't) to work with Matthew when considering renting, buying or building a home!!"



"Matt was very knowledgeable and helpful in our search. We were satisfied to find an apartment after one day of tours."


"Kim is amazing - knowledgeable, energetic, organized, and extremely quick with follow ups. We started working with her when we were looking for rentals in the Chicago area. She patiently took us on several tours and made each experience enjoyable with her positive energy and market expertise. When we realized we were simply frustrated with the selection of rentals in the area, we pivoted to the home-buying process. As first time buyers with a quick timeline, we had A LOT of questions. Not only did she walk us through every step of the home buying process multiple times, but she was also always available within seconds via text or email in case we had any lingering concerns that popped up outside typical business hours. She really went above and beyond to ensure we always felt comfortable. Kim got to know us and our aesthetic really well. Ultimately, she was the one who found us a perfect property before it was listed to the public. We saw it on a Thursday, put our offer in that Saturday, and were in contract that Sunday. Four weeks and five days later - we closed with no issues because of her insightful guidance and advice along the way. Couldn't recommend highly enough!"



"Extremely easy to communicate with. Very helpful, understanding, and honest."



"Tricia was professional, energetic, and hard working. She communicated well and immediately responded to any questions. She was proactive in seeking possible buyers for our property and had an excellent marketing strategy. Tricia is very knowledgeable and respectful of her clients' needs. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to sell or buy property"



"I spoke with Colette over the phone about a listing she was representing, from then on she made my first time home buying experience and search very comfortable and smooth!"



"Matt is extremely knowledgeable and was very helpful in helping find a good apartment that fit our needs. He always answered any questions we had in a timely manner. He made the entire process very simple and stress-free. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a realtor in Chicago to use Matt Neistat."


"Matt is amazing! He truly looks out for your best interest and is honest with you about a property, whether it is the location, the building or the price. Matt is also very patient and will not try to rush you into making any decisions you are unsure of; he will take time out of his day to walk you through confusing documents if you are a first-time buyer. Matt will also make sure you are protected every single step of the way.I am a first-time buyer, and the process was seamless, on Matt. He is an extremely hands-on broker, and that is key. I have used him for commercial space, renting a condo, and finally, purchasing a home.I would highly recommend Matt to anyone and everyone I know!"


"Matthew was amazing! My house was listed and sold within 10 wks. He made suggestions for a quicker sale and everything worked. For anyone that needs a realtor Matthew is your man. Thank you so much!"


"We enjoyed working with Matthew. He was professional, considerate, understanding and went above and beyond caring for our needs. I would recommend him to anyone!"


"Matt is really great, through and through. He always managed to make himself consistently available for viewings. He listened to all of our questions and gave us informative and realistic answers that were never pushy. He's very down to earth and is really knowledgeable about the market and the city. I had a great experience working with Matt, and really enjoyed having him be part of this process with us."



"I came to matt with a very fast deadline and very specific requirements for the apartment we were looking for. Not only did he go above and beyond to make sure we got exactly what we wanted, but he found us a beautiful apartment! within two days we signed a lease!"



"Sonia is extremely knowledgeable with the Chicagoland area and really reliable. I feel that once my wife and I are ready to purchase another property, we will contact Sonia. One wants to purchase from someone they trust and can brainstorm with without feeling like they are being judged because one tends to be frugal or would like to see other options. While working with Sonia, I never felt uncomfortable; therefore, I will definitely refer friends as well as come back for repeat business."



"I am a second time buyer through Nicole! Nicole is a professional with highest integrity, and best interest of her clients. I would refer Nicole for all your Chicago realty needs."



"Tricia was absolutely fantastic!! She was there for me every step of the way and answered every question I had. She knows her stuff! I'm going to recommend her to all of my friends and family who are looking for a broker."
