"You could not ask for a better real estate agent than Harry Maisel!

We needed to sell my parents downtown condo because they were ready to move into a memory care facility. That was difficult enough. However, this also occurred right at the onset of the Coronavirus when nobody wanted downtown Chicago real estate.

Truly Harry held our hands through this entire process. Could not have been kinder or more patient. In the end we sold for more than we expected and could not be happier. I would recommend Harry to anyone!"



"Great job under extremely difficult closing circumstances"



"Harry was an absolute pleasure to work with. I was a first time home buyer and Harry was dependable, patient, knowledgeable, and professional. His calm demeanor and strong professional background and experience made me feel at ease from beginning all the way to the end of the home buying process. Harry's communication with me was exceptional, he always responded to both e-mails and texts within the hour and he was always able to accommodate my busy schedule when it came to time to schedule viewings of houses. I truly felt comfortable asking him any questions I had during the home buying process, which was completely new territory for me. If you are looking to buy a new home or condo I highly recommend Harry. He is knowledgeable, helpful, professional and an all around great guy!"



"Harry is knowledgeable, honest and patient. I have sold three properties with Harry's help and have had no regrets on any of the three deals. I highly recommend Harry Maisel as your real estate advisor/broker."



"Harry was great with the listing and sales process. Literally handled everything for me so the process was painless. If you are in need of an experienced realtor to sell a home in Chicago, I would strongly suggest contacting Harry. Thank you!"



"Harry has helped me rent this property over the past 10 years and now has helped me sell it. He always brings a professional attitude, and appropriate strategy depending on market conditions and my needs as the owner. I would recommend Harry for your real estate needs for condos and single family homes in a heart beat!"



"Harry was amazing to work with from start to finish and made the home-buying process easier than I could have ever imagined. He listened carefully to my "must-haves" and found some great options for me to view. He provided help and guidance every step of the way and was clearly very knowledgeable of both the process as well as the city. He was always responsive and even gave me several referrals to painters/contractors in the area that he's worked with. Would highly recommend."



"Harry recently helped my husband and I purchase our second home. We were interested in going from a multi-unit house to a single family home in the same neighborhood and wanted to wait to find the right fit. We searched with Harry over the course of several months, and he eventually helped us land on the perfect home- one we can grow into over the course of many years.

Harry was incredibly patient, professional, and personable. His knowledge and expertise about houses, potential repairs needed (and associated costs), and various options available were highly valuable to us and made the whole process much less stressful that it might have been otherwise. He was also able to assist us in some tricky negotiations. We will definitely use Harry again in the future!"



"I highly recommend working with Harry Maisel! He handled a sale for us this year and was steadfast, effective and good-natured during the roller coaster ride that is 2020. Harry communicated well, offered sound advice and was consistently kind and respectful to all parties. He patiently navigated the obstacles that came our way, and when we were finally permitted to have showings, he was effective at getting prospective buyers to view the property. It sold, we’re happy, and would gladly work with Harry again!"



"Harry provided very fine professional services........and by the way our home was sold. He was always on top of things and provided EXCEPTIONAL communication skills. Harry went beyond the customary menu of items to make our sale,, but also was very instrumental in helping us find a new place (as for now we are renting). I would (and have) recommend him without reservation."



"Harry helped me buy my home and was present from start to finish. He understood exactly what I was looking for and made himself available at every step of the way. His knowledge of the city is outstanding but what makes him different is his compassion and dedication to me as a client. I will always be grateful to him and highly recommend his services. I can truthfully say that it was a unique and wonderful experience working with him."



"Harry was a huge asset as we purchased our first home. We had lots of questions and he was always available to share his knowledge and make sure we were comfortable moving forward. We were thankful for the feedback he gave us on many of the properties we viewed - he made it clear that he wanted us to find the right place, not just push us towards a sale. We were very impressed with Harry's advocacy for us in negotiating and will definitely recommend him to friends and family in the future."



"I have been working with Harry personally and professionally for many years now. I love working with Harry because not only is he extremely knowledgeable and professional, but he’s genuinely a great guy. He puts his client’s needs ahead of his own, which is a rarity in the real estate business. And by far one his greatest assets other than his expertise, is his ability to be even-keeled and steady regardless of the circumstances. During what can sometimes be a tumultuous and emotional process, Harry truly brings a sense of calm and steadiness that can’t be understated. I would recommend Harry to anyone who values authenticity, great service and local real estate market expertise!"



"Harry was quite helpful in our selling process. He went above and beyond what I expected. I did not have to lift a single finger or visit the unit sold during the entire sales process.

Having Harry on your team will ensure the smoothest sales process possible from your side."



"Harry listened to what my needs and wants were and found me the perfect place. I felt like he didn't waist my time showing me properties that wouldn't work for me! GREAT broker!!!!"



"I had an excellent experience with Harry and would highly recommend him. He has a very low key style, but is very knowledgeable of the Chicago real estate market and works really hard to find you the right place. I am very happy with the home that I purchased. I will definitely use Harry again when it comes time to move again."



"Harry helped me rent an apartment, buy a condo, rent out a condo and finally sell my condo. In all of these cases Harry went above and beyond in his service to me. In the case of selling my condo I was living in NYC selling my condo in Chicago. Harry helped find contractors for painting the walls, fixing the floors and installing a wall and door. He used several vehicles to get my condo noticed in a very tough economic time. I know I got the best offer I could because of Harry's efforts. If I ever move back to Chicago I will ask for his help again."



"I am a practicing Illinois attorney with 21 years of experience, closing many real estate transactions and working with many brokers.
Harry Maisel recently represented my family in a sales transaction. Mr. Maisel stands head and shoulders above any real estate professional within my extensive experience. Amazing professionalism, tact, integrity, sales and marketing ability. I strongly recommend him for either a purchase or sale."



"We had the pleasure of working with Harry Maisel over the course of nine months through several extremely difficult transactions in our goal to purchase a multi-unit property in Chicago. We chose Harry because of his expertise and breadth of knowledge in dealing with multi-units, specifically properties requiring rehabilitation. Throughout the process, Harry proved to be extremely knowledgeable in understanding and communicating to us the value of a property and the extent of work we would need to execute in order to accomplish our goals. He was able to give us solid advice on things to look for and things to be wary of and was very insightful in whether or not a purchase would be a good deal. Despite several properties falling through, Harry proved to be extremely patient with us and respectful of our buying constraints during the process, always making sure to communicate well with us.

Ultimately, Harry did help us find a wonderful 3-unit property. It was an extremely difficult process to purchase the house due to external issues such as a flawed appraisal and last minute repair issues that came to light, but Harry stuck with us every step of the way, explaining our options and helping us make it happen. By the end of our experience we can say that Harry was not only a fantastic agent, but a great friend as well. We can’t thank Harry enough and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a trusted partner and determined resource in buying or selling a home!

"Harry found me my perfect little corner of the city! He listened to what I wanted and sent me specific properties that met my criteria. He continues to look for additional properties as we speak!"



"Harry has been our broker for several years. He is a very professional and knowledgeable person in every aspect of the many transactions that we have done.We highly recommend Harry Maisel to facilitate all of your real estate needs."



"I met Harry through a friend who had hired him to sell her parent's condo in 2010. So in early 2011 when my daughter decided to purchase a condo it made sense to work with Harry based on the positive feedback that we had gotten from my friend. After all, Harry's area of expertise is selling/buying condos. During 2011 Harry showed my daughter many condos and continuously emphasized how important is was to look at many different properties before making a final decision and to remain patient, that eventually the right condo would come along. This turned out to be excellent advice. Harry knows which condo buildings are financially solvent and well managed and this is critically important information for a condo buyer. By the end of 2011 my daughter was moved into her dream condo. Then, in early 2012 I made the decision to relocate to Chicago from Ann Arbor, Michigan, to be closer to my daughter; and yes, I contacted Harry to help me find my condo. Harry worked with me throughout 2012 while I worked toward the goal of selling my home. Harry even helped me find my realtor in Ann Arbor, Michigan who sold my house in 48 hours after listing it. Harry would schedule eight to ten showings during my periodic visits to Chicago. He even showed me condos that already had contracts to give me an idea of how I could improve a condo to make it my own place. I can't say enough good things about Harry. He is thoughtful, asks questions about you, what you want in a condo. He gently probes for details to find out who you are . . . all of this is to better serve you the customer. What I liked best about working with Harry is that he is neither a pushy nor aggressive salesman; he doesn't push you toward a purchase that may not be a right fit. He's very patient! He knows his trade and by the end of 2012 I was the proud owner of a condo one half mile from my daughter's with stunning views of Lake Michigan. Thanks Harry!

Thanks again,"



"Working with Harry has always been a pleasure for me. He quickly understood what I was looking for in a home and in a neighborhood when I was on the hunt. Even though I found my home on our first day out, he urged me to keep looking so I felt comfortable with my decision. Many years later he made the selling of that home very easy for me and my tenants as I have since moved to another state. His honesty, knowledge and experience has always made me feel I was in good hands."



"I highly recommend Harry, as he is a very knowledgeable, fair, attentive and professional realtor. His expertise is vast and he will work tirelessly to ensure your home is sold and you get the maximum value for your property."



"Harry put in many hours to find the perfect property for us. And then put in many more hours helping us navigate a complex "as is" purchase. We will always go to Harry for our future purchases."



"Harry is the ideal person to work with when buying a home. My fiancé and I reached out to Harry to find our first place in Chicago. Harry met us for coffee in our neighborhood and made us feel comfortable immediately. He was very flexible when we wanted to see a place quickly and asked all the right questions (we had no idea what we needed to know as first time buyers). When we found the right place, Harry walked us through all the key steps and worked closely with the other realtor to make sure everything went smoothly. I have nothing bad to say about him. He has good taste, is very responsive, and not at all over the top, pushy or intrusive. We highly recommend him and look forward to working with him again some time in the future."



"Harry was a great asset working with us on THREE of our properties in a year's time. He sold an investment 2 flat, he helped us secure our new home and he helped sell or former primary. All 3 experiences went as well as could from beginning to close. An agent's experience has to be a top consideration when choosing agent and Harry has that. He is calm and collected on front end and can be very tactful and skillful in the negotiation process, resulting in saved money. He also has resource with legal, inspection and mortgage personnel which greatly helped. Chose Harry and you will not regret. - Patrick G"



"Harry helped us sell our condo in the city and purchase our home in Glencoe. He is very patient and knowledgeable about the market and industry. He gave us very good advice and was very responsive. We would definitely recommend Harry to anyone who is looking to buy/sell in Chicago or North Shore."



"I have worked with Harry several times over the past 4 years on both personal and investment properties as well as a rental property. His knowledge of Chicago and its neighborhoods is extraordinary. He is incredibly professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend Harry for all of your real estate needs."



"I was not familiar with the Chicago area and the buying process in the US. Harry was verry useful to highlight the advantages and disadvantages of the various neighborhoods we researched, considering where I was going to work and the style of life that I wanted to have. The choice I made proved to be just perfect! Harry was also very useful in accompanying me through the buying process, including obtaining things from the seller that I would not have hoped for. The entire process run very smoothly. That was certainly an important factor in making this relocation the best ever (out of 3) and a large contributor to the easy adaptation into the American way of life! Thanks a million Harry!"



"We've used Harry for one sale and two purchases. He believes in the project -- even when our sale price was a little higher than he recommended -- and worked hard to make it happen. He shares great insights on market trends and we trust his recommendations."



"Harry was an amazing broker to work with. He found us our dream home. He fought for a good price for us. He was consistently attentive and available. We highly recommend him!"



"From out first phone conversation I felt that Harry was going to be the realtor for us. We were looking for a condo for our daughter to live in while in grad school. Harry really understood what type of property we were looking for. He actual knew better than we did since we were not familiar with the area and the condo market. With Harry’s guidance we quickly became familiar with the area and the type of property that was best suited for our daughter. He also helped us by asking questions that we didn’t know to ask about the building maintenance and cash reserves. Some of the best advice we got from Harry was to be patient and know that the right condo would go on the market. Harry helped us with the inspector, attorney and even gave some referrals for painter, electrician etc. Throughout the entire process we felt that Harry gave us his honest opinion and expert guidance. Harry Maisel was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him!"



"I could not have asked for a better real estate agent than Harry! He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, kind, and trustworthy. I live in New York and Harry oversaw the entire process of selling my condo in Logan Square, from preparing the property for listing, through to closing. He patiently fielded all of my questions and concerns (this was my first time as a home-seller), and was incredibly communicative and responsive throughout, keeping me informed during every part of the experience. Harry has a lot of integrity, understands the market, and guides his clients with their best interests in mind. He went above and beyond for me every step of the way. I can't speak of Harry highly enough. He really is the best in the business."



"Harry was very responsive, knowledgable and professional. He did not pressure us into buying anything we did not and was very willing to work with us in order to get us into our new home. All-in-all, Harry was easy to work with and it was a great experience overall."



"We have worked with Harry for the last 11 years. He has helped us sell two homes and buy two homes. He is currently helping us by our next house. He is super responsive and and is full of great knowledge! Over the years he's helped us with our real estate lawyers, inspectors and even a wonderful handyman. We are pleased with all the work they and he have done over the years! Highly recommend Harry!"

"Harry was great in helping me sell and buy multiple properties. His experience and knowledge was invaluable in helping me navigate the best value and location to buy my new place in the city. Definitely recommend you use Harry for any of your realty needs."



"Harry was sensitive to my situation and took care of all of the details associated with the move. I did not have to worry about anything! I recommend Harry Maisel to anyone doing business in the Chicagoland area!!!"



"Harry was super easy to work with and was a real advocate for me. I appreciate how responsive he was during the negotiation process. If you are looking for a real estate agent who will put your interests first--- call Harry!"



"Harry was recommended to my boyfriend and I last year when we decided to purchase a house. We've both lived in Chicago a few years but needed help determining a neighborhood and refining the vision for our potential home. As first time homebuyers, Harry was incredibly patient with us and highly knowledgeable not only in terms of recognizing quality but also in giving us overviews of neighborhoods. A Chicago native, he could easily point us to the best restaurants, gyms, etc. in the area. He was refreshingly honest, too, and would tell us if there was something we needed to pay attention to. Harry is also very intuitive. We were all across the board, looking at condos and single family homes over multiple neighborhoods. Harry helped us solidify exactly what we were looking for and got to know us so well he could tell if we liked a place the second we walked in. He was well liked among the other brokers and able to get us multiple showings easily. When we closed on a property he took the time to walk us through the process and make sure we were comfortable. Even after moving we're still in touch with him. He's been able to provide fantastic references for everything from a cleaning service to an AV company. I can't recommend Harry enough. He has the integrity, reputation and negotiation skills to ensure as smooth a transaction as possible."



"Harry takes the time to understand exactly what you are looking for as a buyer. He works tirelessly showing you various home styles in various neighborhoods of interest to you as the buyer.
We look at several homes in three different parts of the City which helped me focus in on the neighborhood and home that meet my needs and preference.
I've bought and sold five homes in my life so far and I have never worked with a better realtor and will engage Harry Maisel for all my future real estate transactions."



"Harry helped me sell my home in Chicago. Since I was moving to Los Angeles he was able to sell it very quickly for the price we were looking for. Harry was so helpful and responsive that he was even willing to help me sell some of the contents. He went above and beyond the agent's responsibilities. A few years later he sold my parent's home as well."



"Harry sold my house! While that's the key in any real estate relationship, I was also impressed and grateful for his personal attention to me. We had lots of traffic, and within a short period of time, the house was sold to a lovely family. That last fact is important to someone who loves their house and wants it left in good hands. I'm pleased to say all parties are more than satisfied."



"Harry has been working with my family in Chicago for a number of years. He has helped purchase a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom condo in Lincoln Park (for my brother), a 4 story townhouse in Streeterville (for my parents) and a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom condo in Lakeview (my home). Through Harry's connections, I was able to view and put in an offer on my condo before it actually hit the market. Many other listings we attended, Harry had been the first agent to contact the sellers, which was reassuring knowing the market had heated up. Harry's laid back, yet prompt and professional attitude allowed me to really assess what I was looking for without feeling pressure. He was able to quickly identify what I was looking for and I ended up in a perfect condo. Going forward, I will always plan to reach out to Harry for any additional real estate needs. He is not only informative on all areas of the city, but he is a pleasure to work with. He provides a truthful and realistic approach to the entire process of viewings, listings and negotiations. I would recommend Harry Maisel to any friend/family looking to purchase or sell real estate."



"My husband and I worked with Harry in 2006 and again in 2013 to buy two townhouses. He was patient with us (we must have seen a hundred places on the hottest days of the year!) and quickly developed a deep understanding of our personal tastes and our family's needs. He had vast knowledge of various neighborhoods and the local schools, which was very important to us, was quick to respond to my requests to see every house on the internet, and helped us find our dream home...twice! He walked us through the processes of making an offer, negotiating a contract and closing the deal, and was personally pivotal in securing our deal in the end. We are very grateful to him for his help and if we ever move again I will certainly look to him for guidance once more. Thanks Harry!"



"Harry was amazing. He is relaxed, a joy to work with, and quickly figured out what sort of property we wanted. I've recommended him to a colleague who also had a good experience.

At the end of the day his negotiation skills got us to buy the place for $20K less than we thought we were going to have to pay."



"Many real estate agents I've dealt with or hear stories about are really only interested in the sale. The #1 priority is the commission.

I didn't feel that with Harry. He genuinely wanted what was best for me.

He provided incredible service. His knowledge of the real estate market, his keen negotiating wisdom, and calm demeanor made buying a house a great experience.

He found a home that was way out of price range, but had the instincts to feel like the owners might take a low offer. Thanks to Harry, I bought a home in May of 2012 for $75,000 below asking price."



"Harry helped us to find our new home in Chicago, and we could not be happier with the results. We were new to the city, and his knowledge of the neighborhoods, the ins and outs of transit, and other aspects of Chicago were invaluable. He guided us through a multi-round negotiation, and we got a home we love. We'd recommend him enthusiastically."



"Harry's expertise and guidance were just what we needed when we sold our home. From start to finish, he helped us prepare our home before listing, had great communication during the showing process and helped us handle a lengthy closing process (to no fault of his own!) with grace. Highly recommend Harry!"



"In selling our Loop apartment, Harry was easy to work with, efficient, creative, and prepared an outstanding photo presentation. He met my price expectations without annoying negotiations, leaving nothing for me to do other than thank Harry and highly recommend him."



"Harry was a tremendous partner and guide to us during our long and arduous home buying journey. Our process with him basically ran about 11 months from bringing him onboard to closing.

He is a seasoned veteran when it comes to home buying in Northshore and knows pretty much all the ins and outs of the process. Furthermore, he was very patient and calm during our entire negotiations process. He is highly recommended!"



"Harry has been great to work with. He has a high level of communication, when needed and went above and beyond to find the right buyer for our property. Since we live on the west coast, when things needed to be done, he helped execute them flawlessly. We would highly recommend Harry Maisel and @properties."


"Harry represented both the seller and me, the buyer. Such an arrangement requiresa skilled professional who can balance competing interests. The transaction was completed quickly and to each party's satisfaction as Harry represented both of us honestly. His attention to both of our needs was exceptional."



"Harry has been very patient with me, answering all my multiple questions on the process. He has also been a good negotiator and was able to obtain a fair price for my property. His advices on preparing the property for showings were very useful, which resulted in closing within 3 months."



"Harry did an outstanding job representing us on an investment property! He was our broker for both the purchase and sale, and fought hard to get us the best value. Harry is always professional and has a calm nature. We will definitely be working with Harry again!"



"Harry performed an excellent service for us. He was keen to understand what properties we might like or should avoid and was instrumental in guiding us through all the new aspects of home purxhase, something we had not done for over 17 years. Harry's calm and steady demeanor was great comfort during the inevitable high stress of finding a new place to live. We highly recommend Harry for any new prospective client."



"We have worked with Harry on two purchases and one sale; his work is tremendous! He possesses a high level of local knowledge which greatly assisted us in finding the right place in the right neighborhood. He provided invaluable advice in preparing the house for listing and showing, and secured deals on both ends that we were pleased with."



"Harry was great to work with and made our sale go quick and fair."



"Harry has been wonderful to work with. He is incredibly responsive and knowledgeable, and really takes the time to explain everything. I especially appreciate going into a stressful process with someone so calm and reasonable. by my side."



"Harry was a pleasure to work with. Very patient and supportive in my relocation efforts back to Chicago. I appreciated his attention to the specific features I was looking for in an apartment. And I especially appreciated his knowledge about restaurants, shops, entertainment sites in the downtown neighborhoods I was interested in. Made my decision on where to live so much easier! Thanks, Harry!"



"Harry is a wonderful realtor. He is honest, ethical, hard-working and kind. I am so glad I chose him for my condo sale and have recommended him to others who are looking for an outstanding realtor."



"Harry was wonderful! He made the buying process so easy for me. I'm not an experienced purchaser and had many questions. Harry was patient and answered everything for me and walked me through the process when necessary. Such a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend his services in the future."



"Harry was great to work with and made our sale go quick and fair."



"We used Harry when we were buying a condo in Chicago several years ago, and we reached out again for help to sell it when a work opportunity called us out of the area. Harry is hands down the best realtor we have ever used. He is first of all extremely knowledgeable and gave us very specific advice on what steps to take in order to sell the place quickly and for a fair market price. He also did a lot of extra work for us such as getting in touch, arranging, and managing the staging company, which made the whole process considerably less stressful. He was always one step ahead, anticipating what needed to be done when so as not to delay the transaction at any stage. Harry's personal approach also made a huge difference. He is professional while at the same time making us feel completely taken care of, and referred excellent people to help us along the way: from the lawyer down to the cleaning crew. Harry is easy-going and kind, which helps when you are looking for a place downtown Chicago where the traffic can be a little nuts. Overall, a great experience all-around."



"Working with Harry was such a pleasure! His knowledge of the properties in the city made finding a new home an easy process. He was so flexible with his time and was always reassuring that he would find us the perfect home AND HE DID! He spent the time upfront to fully understand our wish list and budget. He also took the time to get to know us, which helped him to find the best property for us. Harry is the best broker For buying a home in the city."



"Harry is amazing! He gave us great advice for getting our condo ready to go on the market. We had it under contract within one day! He was very professional and helpful throughout the entire process. I highly recommend him!"



"Harry de-mystified the first-time-selling process. He was patient and answered 100's of our questions. He was a great asset for us."



"Harry was amazing.! Harry replied timely whenever we had questions and ensured our home sale and home buy went very smoothly. I would recommend Harry to anyone looking o buy a new home or sell their home."



"Second time working with Harry and another great experience! Seamless process for both buy and sell of our properties, including a condensed closing schedule!"



"Harry recently acted as our realtor to sell our 13-year-old Lakeview home in a currently tough market saturated with new construction homes of similar style. He did a great job securing a highly satisfactory offer for us. He also identified a lovely rental home in a desirable area in a suburb and secured the multi-year lease we wanted, after patiently taking me out as many times as I asked to look at different areas. Harry has many years of experience in residential real estate and he showed clear guidance and talented expertise throughout the process of staging, pricing and listing, showing, negotiating and the weighty process of moving from our home of 13 years. Harry's also a very positive, patient, kind and fair person with a great sense of humor --we enjoyed our time with him even during the inevitable stressful situations that arise in selling a home and moving. He was basically always there for us day or night by phone, email or text ... and in person of course often with a grande non-fat latte or extra moving box for me. Our respect for Harry Maisel's real estate abilities grew throughout our complex process and we could not recommend him more highly."



"Great to work with Harry. Told him what I wanted and he was able to line things up wonderfully and smoothly and help me find exactly what I was looking for, at the price I was looking for, in the time frame I was looking for. Always kept his cool and kept the home buying process running with great responsiveness to any concerns I had. Very knowledgeable with contacts and resources for every step of the way."



"Harry is an experienced and knowledgeable agent who will stick with you as a client and do what is best for you under any circumstance.

"Harry is simply the best! I trust him with all of my real estate needs. Harry is extremely knowledgeable, professional, a great negotiator, and an excellent advocate for his clients. He is patient, communicative, diligent, and very easy to work with. I honestly can't say enough good things about Harry! He has a high degree of integrity, and always puts the needs of his clients ahead of his own. I definitely recommend using Harry for your buying or selling needs. He has helped me with both throughout the years, and continues to do an outstanding job. Thank you Harry!!!"

"Harry is great!"



"Harry gave us better Lakeview market analysis than other brokers had previously provided and he was good at working with our needs & setting our expectations. The marketing and listing we thought was phenomenal, pictures were great & description included very good, detailed insights/sell points for the area surrounding our condo - way above & beyond "just steps to the 'L' and lake". Had an offer within days, Harry was very helpful in negotiation (very good for 1st time sellers like us) and the closing was smooth, even with us now being out-of-state."

I recommend him highly."

"Working with Harry has always been a pleasure for me. He quickly understood what I was looking for in a home when we were on the hunt. And many years later he made the selling of that home very easy for me as I have since moved to another state. His knowledge and experience has always made me feel I was in good hands."


"Harry was amazingly diligent, understanding, patient, and knowledgeable. We had a great experience getting to know Chicago and Harry throughout the 8 MONTHS he showed us around. He followed through with our requests immediately and in a timely manner, and he never lost hope for us in our search. We can't say enough about Harry, and I'm sure we will be using him again in the future when we need to move on from the wonderful place we just purchased. And we will certainly refer him to anyone we know who is in the market to buy or sell."



"I was impressed by the advice Harry Maisel provided as I prepared the property for sale. Additionally, because the property for sale is more than 60 miles from my residence, I appreciated Harry's willingness to meet vendors at the property and to follow up after their work was done."


"Harry provided excellent services and sold my property quicker than expected."


"This was our second time using Harry and again he was fantastic. Professional with great advice. I strongly recommend him."


"Harry has been our broker for several years. He is a very professional and knowledgeable person in every aspect of the many transactions that we have done.We highly recommend Harry Maisel to facilitate all of your real estate needs."
