"It was a pleasure working with Eric throughout the process to sell our condo. He is very knowledgeable about the Chicago market, realistic, responsive, and courteous. The condo itself was on the market for quite some time with multiple realtors. Towards the end of the entire selling process, Eric was referred to us and when he came on board, he advised us in setting the right price to get it sold right away. He also went over & beyond to coordinate logistical items for us, as we no longer lived in Chicago during the listing. We can't recommend him enough!"
"Eric worked hard, even late into the evening. He is knowledgeable and always very helpful"
"Eric was a real professional. He gave us great advice to stage on what we should spend money on (and where to save) when staging our place, and he landed us four offers in one weekend of showings. He was always accessible to answer any question. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to sell your home quickly at the maximum price."
"Eric was there for us every step of the way. He had a great deal of patience as we changed our minds several times on the location and type of property we wanted. In the end we found the perfect condo. Eric worked hard on our behalf to get the best deal possible, meet all the deadlines, and make certain the seller followed through on everything. His deep knowledge of the Chicago real estate market is really impressive and his 24/7 availability was greatly appreciated."
"Eric is an A++ professional. The most important purchase or sale in a lifetime is that of a property. I knew Eric previously when we worked together as fellow realtors, so I knew he was the best. I knew the importance of choosing a savvy, experienced, intelligent and professional agent to represent my condo sale.Eric exceeded every expectation I had, and created a positive, low-stress experience for me as a seller. He gave me guidance every step of the way, and assured me we would have a quick sale (received an offer in 12 days). Eric rocks.Thank goodness for smart, ethical, reliable realtors like him."
"Eric Newman took the time to listen to my interests and goals in terms of purchasing a new home. He offered insight and suggestions on more than just basic real estate questions and took a genuine interest in making sure I found a home that would work for my needs."
"I extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to Eric Newman of @properties. Eric, worked with me as a buyer moving from Texas to Chicago. The transition was stressful enough moving from one state to the other but Eric offered so much support and information to help me make a final decision. He was very efficient, knowledgeable, professional, friendly, well acquainted with the downtown Chicago area. I was especially please with his responsiveness! I never had to wait long for a response to a VM or email. Now I am moving into a beautiful loft in the River North area! Thank you again Eric for the hard work!"
"Eric gave me easy, practical ideas for getting my house ready to go on the market. He is very thorough and knowledgeable. He helped me with pricing and timing and sold my condo in one month. I was extremely happy with Eric and his services and highly recommend him to anyone looking for one of the best Realtors in the city."
"As a first time home buyer, it's difficult to digest the many facets of the real estate world. Eric not only clarified the whole process for me, but helped me make decisions that were best suited to my personal needs. I am now a proud home owner with zero buyer's remorse, and Eric deserves a great deal of credit for that!"
"Like most people, my time is extremely limited. So for the sale of my home, I needed someone who could take the ball and run without requiring a lot of participation from me. Eric Newman was precisely that person. After obtaining the requisite information, he was able to work independently and gave me regular updates along the way...He sold my place at a price I was very pleased with and made the transaction as painless as possible. I couldn't have been more satisfied with the work he did."
"When I decided that it was time to buy, I only had a few months before my lease was up. I didn't even know where to begin looking or what range I could start in. Eric was a lifesaver, taking me through the process step-by-step and working around my busy work schedule to view places on lunch or weekends. I started looking just before Christmas and by February, had everything worked out. Eric even referred me to a lender and an inspector, making everything that much easier on me. I love the fact that even after the contract was finalized, Eric personally came to the closing to make sure things went smoothly. His attention to detail and the fact that he really listens to what his clients need and/or want make him a stand-out professional. Thanks Eric!"
"I took the plunge into home ownership last winter, and enlisted Eric as my buying agent. For starters, Eric was incredibly proficient at finding many different properties that matched my preferences. We would look at properties a few times a week, and he worked continually to identify listings to check for the next time out. Throughout the process, my idea of the 'perfect home' continued to evolve, and Eric adapted the property selections to meet it. We eventually found the place I was looking for, and Eric was there through the closing and beyond. My original idea of a real estate agent was that it was someone who 'finds homes', but Eric proved to be an indispensable guide and source of knowledge for the whole process. I couldn't have done it without him, and would recommend him to anyone seeking an agent."
"Liz and I would like to thank Eric regarding his commitment and dedication to selling our Lakeview property...Eric was extremely enthusiastic and creative in his approaches to market our condo and highlight the fact that it was not your ordinary 'two bedroom condo'. Eric scheduled multiple showings and targeted marketing mailings to potential buyers. In the end, we were able to sell the condo with minimal 'creep' in our original asking price and close in an extremely short amount of time. Both Liz and I have had many realtor experiences prior to working with Eric and we both agree that he was the most dedicated, efficient, and the nicest real estate agent we have ever worked with. We have, and will, recommend Eric to anyone that is looking for a property to buy or sell."
"Eric was fantastic, end to end, in the selling process. He gave a clear, educated opinion that helped us make timely and quality decisions throughout the process. He was always available to provide advice and quality counsel. We used Eric on the buying side previously and he was equally fantastic. The checklist provided at the end of process was a nice touch that I found very helpful when I had so much on my mind. Overall, Eric did another fantastic job for us and we were delighted to sell our condo quickly and at a good price."
"Compared to other brokers, Eric is an 11. With his management consulting background, Eric knows how to be professional, communicate and advocate for his client. Eric knows the end to end process and sets expectations with you from the very beginning. He tells you the right questions to ask and provides amazing guidance on all facets of the process."
"Not only was Eric knowledgable about short sales, but the people he referred me to to assist with the process were amazingly professional. It was a seamless and easy experience as the agent and attorney communicated well to close the short sale within 90 days."
"We thoroughly enjoyed working with Eric. He made the sale process as painless as possible, and was always responsive and helpful. We would highly recommend Eric to anyone else looking to sell their house - you'll enjoy working with him.Lisa and Michael Loftis"
"Eric did a terrific job. He was easy to work with, a great communicator and executed the sale of our condo flawlessly."
"We had been using another broker and brokerage firm for more than a year. Eric changed the approach to marketing, helped us enhance the condo's presentation, and we sold it in a couple weeks for very close to our asking price. Eric is professional, creative, and communicative, as well as an excellent strategic advisor. I would recommend him whole-heartedly."
"Best of the bear"
"Eric helped us through a very difficult short sale and put us in contact with a great legal team. He helped us come up with creative solutions for us to accomplish our objectives in a very challenging environment!"
