"Jeff has been the true embodiment of a full-service broker. From start to finish and soup to nuts, Jeff has gone above and beyond on a long journey to help get our property rented. Whether it was showing up as our proxy for inspections or managing the multitude of delays with 3rd parties, Jeff was eager and willing to take on whatever matter needed attending to, all with a cheerful disposition. Look forward to working with Jeff again and of course to recommending him whole-heartedly."


"Jeff was wonderful to work with! He was super efficient at getting our place on the market quickly. He did all of the showings himself which I really appreciated. He also was very attentive and responses to any and all of our concerns. I think that our place sold because Jeff priced it correctly and worked the listing. I would highly recommend Jeff!"


"Jeff was a pleasure to work with. He was always professional, quick to respond to all parties involved, and I felt like he always put our needs first. I will surely use him again."


"Jeff was referred to us by a co-worker who had just completed a deal with him a few weeks prior to our connecting with him. From the outset Jeff was prompt, efficient and very enthusiastic! Jeff is/ was absolutely a stellar agent. He was informative, prompt, took initiative, super accommodating and extremely personable. We were income property and Chicago income property virgins, with Jeff, we became fast 'pros'. We had some unique constraints (my husband and I were in different physical locations), this did not phase Jeff, he was flexible and accommodating to our hectic schedules. He held our hands every step of the way, even through deals that fell apart and back and forth negotiations when we finally did find a property we made an offer on, Jeff was there to steer us through. We trusted him so much that we went with all his other recommendations (mortgage co,attorneys, security co, handymen, he's also our rental listing agent to boot!). If there is one word to describe Jeff it's 'trustworthy' - we always felt we were in really good hands, we trusted Jeff implicitly. Never once did we feel like our best interest wasn't at heart, never once did we feel taken advantage of or dismissed. Trusting that our agent was truly working in our best interest was paramount and we lucked out with Jeff in this regard. We look forward to future deals with Jeff. He has earned our business and referral many times over."


"I can't say enough nice things about Jeff in regards to the purchase of my first home. He was extremely patient with me and I couldn't ask for a better adviser throughout the process. I also appreciate him being more than just my realtor when needed- he could step in as an unofficial lawyer, resource provider, and friend. After two years of looking, offering, being under contract multiple times, and finally closing, I'm very happy to be done with the process, but so thankful to have worked with such a great person through all of this. By far, he was the strongest member of my purchasing team and I am forever grateful for his work."


"Jeff was great from start to finish. Highly recommended, the best agent I have dealt with in 5 housing transactions. My lawyer was equally impressed by Jeff's professionalism and attention to detail."



"Jeff is amazing! I highly recommend using @ properties!"

"Jeff is super easy to talk to and very professional"


"Jeff was great to work with. I am a first time homebuyer and he made the process painless. He was always available to answer questions, and I also felt that he was looking out for my best interests. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family and would use him again in the future."


"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Jeff on the selling of my condo. He was able to move my property before the time frame I needed which was very expedited and he managed to pull it off before it even went to list. Great work! Thanks for all your hard work!"


"Jeff was always quick to respond and extremely helpful. He answered all of our questions well and never made us feel dumb for asking. Having him handle the paperwork and help guide us to what we needed to do was invaluable. He is a pleasure to work with and makes the process painless!"


"Jeff was the perfect example of professionalism throughout the entire process. He kept us fully informed about showings and offered quick and helpful feedback. He was very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and made excellent comparisons to other properties. Being first-time landlords, he explained everything very well and made sure that we were making the best decisions. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone seeking to rent out a condo."


"As first time home buyers, we could not have ask for a better experience working with Jeff! He was always quick to respond to our questions and provided helpful advise along the way. He was also very knowledgeable about the locations we were interested in, which was great since we were fairly new to the area. In the end, we found a great condo that we love thanks to Jeff!"


"Jeff is extremely responsive and organized. He makes it he entire process go smoothly."

Jeff carefully walks you through the entire process and gives suggestions so He can sell your home fast. Thanks Jeff for another sale well done!!"


"As a first time buyer it was a bit overwhelming at times trying to find the right home, but Jeff took my considerations into play and found me the perfect place! His guidance through the entire process was filled with knowledge, excellent communication, organized direction, and a true champion of making sure my requests and needs were a priority. If you want a broker who would be your champion, your hand holder', your "therapist" , and your "go to guy" for all resources all rolled into one it is definitely Jeff!"


"Jeff is amazing. There aren't enough good things to say about his proactive work ethic, his knowledge and thoroughness regarding the field and his professionalism. He offered great advice and I felt that he genuinely had my best interest at hand. He is hands down the best in the city. I recommend him to anyone!!!"


"Jeff was truly a lifesaver for me! I worked with him for nearly two years, beginning in August 2010 when I was living in Central America and needed to find tenants for my condo in Rogers Park. Not only did he find a wonderful couple to rent the condo, he did it in just over a month and negotiated a decent rental price at a time when the market was totally glutted. When those tenants moved out sooner than expected, Jeff helped me prepare the property for sale and stuck it out with me through a very long and stressful process that resulted in a short sale in July 2012. During the entire period, he was always excellent at maintaining communication—crucial when the client lives at a distance!—and giving me regular updates on what was happening with my property and the market in general. When the condo finally sold, he connected me with an equally patient and skilled attorney who provided great service and advice along the way. With Jeff’s help, I was able to put the whole financial and emotional nightmare behind me. I can’t recommend him highly enough."


"Professional, hard working and very personable."


"We were very happy with Jeff and @properties. We were in a time crunch to sell our condo. Not only did we sell quickly, but very close to asking price. All of the prep, marketing, and comps made us feel very secure in how we listed and priced our home. It is great to have a professional who knows the market work with us on such a big event. We would recommend Jeff and @properties for anyone looking to sell and/or buy a new home."


"Jeff was wonderful to work with. He made us a priority with prompt and frequent communication. Being out-of-state, we needed someone who was trustworthy to show our condo well and get it rented quick - which he did! In just two days we had two offers. We will definitely work with Jeff in the future."


"I wish there were another intensifier word on this survey besides "very likely" or "very satisfied." I would describe my current level of satisfaction after working with Jeff as "amazingly, remarkably, exceptionally satisfied". He was a consummate professional, clear communicator and an excellent ally in the sale of my condominium unit. Thank you Jeff!Lisa Gimelli"


"Jeff was extremely friendly, helpful, resourceful and so easy to talk to. But most importantly, during a deal that began to grow very prolonged and complicated, Jeff provided the stability, experience and general know-how to keep the negotiations alive and to keep us comfortable with what at times appeared to be an impossible situation. Further, after a year of dealing with a real estate agent that was too busy for us and completely uninvolved, Jeff was an incredible relief in constantly being there finding places that we couldn't, even though we were on top of the common resources, and being a consistent source of helpful ideas. I would recommend Jeff to anyone as possibly the best, most personable and resourceful real estate agent around."


"Jeff is very motivated, honest, and dedicated to helping you find the right place."


"Jeff is very prompt in responses, extremely detailed and knowledgable about the process. He does a great job!"


"Jeff was wonderful at guiding us through the whole buying AND selling process. Jeff was always available whether it be for taking us to see a property, getting our place ready to go on the market or answering questions. He was very generous with his time, knowledge and expertise. We would definitely recommend him to a friend and use him again."


"I really enjoyed working with Jeff. He was always very well prepared for our showings when we went to look at properties. Once we began negotiating I could count on him to represent me professionally and being responsive when I had questions or concerns. I really recommend working with Jeff."


"Jeff is an exceptional realtor that I would recommend to anyone buying or selling a home in Chicago. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable and an excellent communicator - which is essential when trying to get a deal done. Jeff patiently worked with me to sell my condo through a very long process and made it happen. I am truly grateful for his hard work and dedication!"


"Jeff was such a pleasure to work with. He was able to get us a viewing of the place we ended up buying before anyone else had a chance to see it, which was amazing and allowed us to put in a timely offer since we were going out of town the weekend it was available for viewing. Also, my husband and I were first time home buyers and we needed a lot of hand holding. I really appreciated Jeff's persistence and willingness to go above and beyond for us. I would recommend Jeff to any first time home buyer!"


"Jeff was very professional. He executed the rental of my condo within two weeks. I was well informed every step of the way and did not need to worry about any of the details. As an out of town owner, this was well worth the fee!"


"Jeff was exceptional, period. Jeff was punctual, professional, knowledgeable, helpful, proactive, organized, fast and most of all patient with our many questions, demands and needs. As second time homebuyers in a challenging, crowded market we had high expectations from our broker. We can only say that Jeff met and exceeded all of them. I think the best thing about working with Jeff was that he made us feel like we were his one and only client at all times even though this was not the case. We would thoroughly recommend Jeff."


"My husband and I were very pleased with Jeffs professionalism and knowledge about the Chicago market. Since we were first time home buyers, we really needed to work with someone who could clearly help us understand which neighborhoods were a fit for us and how to go about the entire purchase process. He was always available to answer questions and give us suggestions and advice. We are very glad we chose to work with him and will definitely recommend him to our friends who are on a house hunt! We love our new place!"


"Jeff was great. He did a good job of finding the types of places I was looking for, in my price range and in the areas I wanted to be. He was knowledgeable and really helped find the perfect place for me! I felt very confident in his skills and expertise and would work with him again."


"I would highly recommend Jeff. He did a great job working with me, my condo association and the buyer. He was patient, thorough and very responsive to emails. I got over the asking price!"


"Jeff was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly from the get go. He was able to answer all of our questions through the whole process. I was also very pleased with the promptness and frequency of communication after each showing and whenever we needed him."


"We have been buying and selling homes for the past 37 years. My wife and I do not recall having a Realtor with the knowledge and concern that Jeff Stewart has for his clients. Not only was he trying to find us a condo that met our physical needs but also one that matched our lifestyle. I would recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking for a new home."


"Moving to a new city can be challenging but we are so lucky Jeff Stewart was our Realtor. We would not have found our house without the help Jeff gave to us. He is patient, flexible with scheduling and very knowledgeable about the market. I will recommend Jeff to anyone I know looking for an Realtor."


"My flexibility with time was running out and we still were not ready to close yet. Jeff made things clear to the difficult group of sellers that were causing the delay that it is NOW or NEVER. It made them wait up and realize that I, the buyer, would walk away. Thanks to Jeff we had a closing in less than a week and I am now very happy in my beautiful new home. I recommend Jeff Stewart because he is very patient, responsible and really gave me a sense of comfort that everything will be fine, and it was!"


"Jeff was great. I already referred someone to him."


"Who would have guessed my high school coworker/classmate would later become our real estate agent? We were really happy with your attention to detail and patience while working with us. Thanks to Jeff Stewart with @properties! We now own a condo!"


"Jeff was instrumental in making the best out of this bad situation, first by finding me a great couple of tenants, and then by finding a buyer when a short sale became my only option. I felt that he went above and beyond the call of duty, especially when the short sale came dangerously close to falling through and he had to come up with a creative way to save the deal. He also recommended a fantastic attorney, who was equally helpful and patient with me at times when I let my desperation show. Through it all, he communicated regularly and was always available to answer my questions. Even from a distance of several thousand miles, I felt confident that he was taking care of my property and would see things through. Now that my condo is sold I can move on with my life. Thanks Jeff I couldn't have done it without you!"


"Jeff Stewart was outstanding--very professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. He helped me rent my place in a short amont of time during a difficult time of year. I highly recommend him."


"Jeff Stewart was very courteous and professional. He was very prompt with his communication regarding the status of our lease agreement, etc., which was greatly appreciated. I would certainly recommend him for future services!"


"We have had rental property for more than 20 years. You are the best realtor I have experienced. It would be my pleasure to recommend you!"


"When my fiancée and I were offered new job opportunities in another city the only thing holding us back was selling our current condo in Chicago. With the wedding planning, new job moves, and very busy schedules, a friend referred us to Jeff. Jeff did an excellent job of taking the stress of selling a condo off both of our shoulders! He did a great job of gaining interest for our property, with consistent showings, and was able to get the right buyer at the time we needed it. Thanks Jeff!"


"Jeff was an amazing guide showing myself and my team some fantastic properties around the city. His calm demeanor and down to earth approach were a breath of fresh air in a sales environment that usually employs “hurry up and buy” types.Jeff was incredibly professional and assembled a custom packet for myself and each of my team members so that they could keep the information on the properties they were interested in close at hand. I have asked my entire team to contact Jeff should they need anything when it comes time to buy or rent for them.Thank you for having such an outstanding employee!"


"Thank you, Jeff Stewart! I would recommend him to anyone. My wife and I each have a property in Chicago but live in Washington, D.C. He found a tenant for my wife's apartment, and found tenants twice for mine. We won't hesitate to work with him again. We're very happy with our tenants. Jeff was terrific at keeping us informed of every step, every inquiry, even news of comparable sales near our place. This was invaluable to us. We will not hesitate to work with Jeff again."


"Jeff is awesome. Initially we thought an agent merely showed condos, and Jeff did an excellent job at that. But as things progressed we realized what a critical role the agent play in communicating with the lawyers, banks, sellers, and then explaining to us what's next. That's when we really realized how lucky we were to have chosen Jeff as our agent. He's friendly, knowledgable, patient, hard working and super easy to talk to. Thanks again Jeff!-Kevin and Liyi"


"Jeff was such a great find. We met him randomly at an Open House and within a few weeks found our dream home! We're first time home buyers so Jeff walked us through a very intimidating process of closing on a place in a very patient, relaxed and supportive way. I felt at ease when something unknown was thrown my way because I had Jeff on my side to be quick about helping me out or putting me in touch with someone who would. I highly recommend Jeff if you're looking for someone with ethics and an ability to listen to what you want."


"Kaitlin and I would like to thank you for the help. You were quick to respond after I first called and gave us numerous options that had been hard to come by through other agents I had previously dealt with. I will keep your contact info if I, or anyone else I know is in the market for either rental properties or looking to purchase a home."


"The best thing about Jeff: His responsiveness. Questions were answered quickly and follow-ups were prompt -- and I appreciate that!"


"Jeff was amazing from day 1! He was extremely professional, friendly, and made sure to make me feel like my needs were met. He always advocated for me and had my interests at heart. He is driven, timely, efficient, and extremely knowledgable. I will absolutely be recommending him to everyone I know! I had nothing but a positive experience and cannot thank Jeff enough for being so helpful and efficient!!!"


"Dear Jodi and Jeff,I think we can celebrate now!!! Luiz and I would like to thank you for making this process much easier for us. You did a fantastic job! We appreciate so much all of your patience and professionalism throughout this long process. We will always refer your work when possible. Again, thank you so much."


"I wanted to take a moment to reach out to all of you in letting you know that it has been a pleasure working with Jeff Stewart. He has been very helpful and always available via email or phone in answering questions on properties, status updates, etc. On top of that - he is very precise which is always beneficial to the client. I have passed his information to my professional network of people as I am sure you know a good word always portrays a strong brand image.This just tells me that @properties has a great caliber of people that work for them, and I look forward doing business with your company in the future. Thanks,Anjan J. Shah, MBA, PMP"


"I speak for both of us when I say that you were absolutely incredible to work with. Your dogged persistence and patience got us through what turned out to be a very difficult apartment search. You were flexible with your schedule, understanding and extremely professional through our entire ordeal. We can say enough nice things about all you did for us in our search. Couple of weeks and we'll take you for beers.Thank you so much Eric and Stephanie"


"I loved working with Jeff! He was always prompt and prepared for a showing. He listened to what I was looking for in a home and made sure that I had numerous options to choose from. He is an excellent Realtor and I will definitely be working with him again in the future!"

"Jeff was such a pleasure to work with. He was able to get us a viewing of the place we ended up buying before anyone else had a chance to see it, which was amazing and allowed us to put in a timely offer since we were going out of town the weekend it was available for viewing. Also, my husband and I were first time home buyers, and we needed a lot of hand holding. Our situation was made especially difficult because the seller of our new place did For Sale By Owner and he was a nightmare to work with. Jeff had to not only coach us but also coach our seller on proper etiquette to maintain during a buying process. (Our seller contacted us directly several times and was very irrational during several phases of the negotiation). I really appreciated Jeff's persistence and willingness to go above and beyond for us. I would recommend Jeff to any first time home buyer!"

Jeff made things clear to the difficult group of sellers that were causing the delay,that it's NOW or NEVER. It made them wake up and realize that the buyer (me) could walk away at this point.

"For reasons out of my control, I was forced to "abandon" my condo but maintain ownership for several years longer than I would have liked or could remotely afford--one of the most stressful situations I've ever experienced. Jeff was instrumental in making the best out of this bad situation, first by finding me a great couple of tenants, and then by finding a buyer when a short sale became my only option. I felt that he went above and beyond the call of duty, especially when the short sale came dangerously close to falling through and he had to come up with a creative way to save the deal.
