"John Wyman did an amazing job in helping us sell our deceased mother's home in the Edgewater neighborhood in Chicago for which we are forever grateful. My sister and I live out of state and John's help was essential - we could not have done it without him. John provided excellent advice regarding pricing, created a beautiful brochure highlighting the features of the house, worked very ethically in representing the buyers and the sellers, and was extremely responsive when we had questions or concerns. He went above and beyond the call of duty as well. When we discovered that a homeless person had been living in a crawl space under the house, leaving a mess that needed to be cleaned up, he found some high school boys who were willing to take the task on. We give John the highest possible recommendation, without qualification, for his excellent and compassionate service."



"It has been an absolute pleasure working with Ann on the sale of my condo! With her patience, expertise, humor, helpfulness and foresight, she makes something that can be very stressful feel controlled and handled. I am grateful to have had her guiding me through this process and I will be recommending her to anyone who needs a realtor."


"Selling our home of 50 years would have been traumatic if not for our wonderful broker, Ann Carson. We completely trusted her and she rewarded that trust 1000%. There was no detail too large or too small for her attention. Her professionalism and expertise brought us to the result we wanted."



"John helped to make selling my house a smooth and easy process. He was a joy to work with and managed to calm any challenges that arose. I would highly recommend him as your broker!"



"Katie helped us find our new home in Chicago. She was extremely helpful and patient while we narrowed our search to specific neighborhoods. Katie is a wonderful realtor, who I highly recommend!"


"John was exceptionally helpful during a very stressful time in my life. The whole @properties team was amazing. They were in constant communication with me throughout the entire process. They were a pleasure to work with and I give them my highest recommendation."


"Ann Carson was an amazing broker! She worked closely with me to understand my preferences and then showed me a variety of types of properties within my very limited parameters. She was supportive and enthusiastic about my search, and I would highly recommend her to others. I love my new home and appreciate all of Ann's hard work to help me find it."



"Ann is such a warm and understanding individual who went above and beyond to cater to my individual tastes and needs throughout this process. As a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions. Ann answered with patience and understanding, delivering a clear expertise on the process and the needs of all parties involved in a way that was clear and understandable for the naive buyer I was. It was also Ann's relationships and ability to remain connected to the wider real estate marketplace that gave me the opportunity to put in an offer on the home I so desperately yearned for. I fully intend on using Ann's expertise again in the future to buy and sell, and wholly recommend her for anyone looking to do the same."


"Ann is the best! She is patient and encouraging, and her biggest priority was ensuring we were happy with our choice."



"We worked with Katie buying our first home in Chicago - I can't say enough wonderful things about Katie, her knowledge of the many Chicago neighborhoods, her patience in our search, and her responsiveness. It took us an incredibly long time to find the right home in the right neighborhood for us and throughout the entire time Katie was incredibly positive, responsive, and no pressure - she really wanted us to find the right place and was invested in our search. She was fabulous in every way!"


"John Wyman did a great job for me in selling my property. I had a two flat which needed some work before it could sell at a decent price. He gave me the names of various contractors who did the work that needed to be done and they did the work in a prompt and professional manner. He always answered my phone calls and guided me through a selling process which was very stressful, but he helped to make it less stressful. I got my full asking price and sold my property within a few months. If you want a real professional who knows what he is doing and gets results, John Wyman is your man."



"I normally do not award "five stars" across the board - but in this instance, Kathleen managed the sale of my much loved home, and me, with such understanding and professionalism that rating is well earned. My house sold in 8 days in undesirable winter weather - at the full asking price. When the inspector for the buyers was significantly late, Kathleen made them feel comfortable and "at home" , serving coffee and chatting as if it was already their home. Ms. Cooper also confirmed area details to assure prospective buyers of the excellent school system, the neighbors, and how well the house had been maintained. I highly recommend Kathleen to handle the sale of your home."


"John Wyman is a highly knowledgeable and warmly personal broker who will represent your property in the best possible way in what remains a tough housing market in the Chicago metro area. He is forthright, and candid in discussing the pros and cons of your property, and the market that it will enter. However, his generosity of spirit makes what can be a scary process clear, building seamless transitions from initial conversations, to property listing, to negotiation of sale. John is readily able to work with everyone from first-time buyers or sellers to those who are seasoned buyers and sellers of real estate. It is not only your home that will be in good hands with John -- you and your family will be, too."



"Katie was great. She was very knowledgeable, helpful, professional, and patient. She was also always accessible and really cared about us as her clients. I would highly recommend her to anyone."


"I would highly recommend John Wyman to any buyer or seller in the Chicago market. Having worked with John on multiple sales and purchases, I have been continually impressed with his deep knowledge of a wide array of city neighborhoods, understanding of market trends, willingness to put our interests ahead of his, and his patience and personal approach."



"Katie did an excellent job of helping me and my wife buy our first home. As inexperienced home buyers, we greatly relied on Katie to guide us through the challenging process of finding and buying our home. She really listened to us and advocated for us when needed. Her knowledge and expertise were invaluable to us. We felt like we were in very good hands. And now, thanks to Katie, we are happily in a lovely, 3-bedroom home."



"Katie was very professional, always kept excellent communication with us."



"Katie was great! She was extremely friendly and easy to work with. She understood the importance of staying within our budget and was never pushy. Katie was extremely patient in helping us find our perfect new home!"



"Kathleen Cooper was an amazing guide throughout my entire home buying process. I felt like she always had my back, was always in my corner, always helpful and kind, a great listener, genuine and authentic. I never felt pressured and I always felt supported by Katie. She was patient when I wavered, had a great eye for what I had in mind, made excellent recommendations, gave fantastic advice and was as excited as I was when we won the bid and closed on the home of my dreams. I have already recommended her to all my friends who are looking for realtors. She was more than a realtor to me, through the process, I really am happy to say that we will continue to be friends."



"Katie is a wonderful realtor, and has enthusiasm and positivity that is contagious. She works closely with a partner with many years of experience, and if she doesn't know something, she finds out! She is a wonderful person to shop for homes with and comforting along the way."


"John is an outstanding broker. My wife and I are first time homeowners, and John gave great advice, helped us stick to our budget, and assisted us in finding a wonderful home. I would recommend him to everyone who needs a broker."



"Katie was great. She was very knowledgeable, helpful, professional, and patient. She was also always accessible and really cared about us as her clients. I would highly recommend her to anyone."


"John was great to work with. I like the direct no nonsense approach he takes towards things."


"We were very pleased with John Wyman and his team, and especially appreciated the additional service of helping us sell the furnishings. That relieved a lot of the stress. We felt like we really got full service for our money."


"John was an absolute pleasure to work with while my wife and I searched for a home in Downtown Chicago. His knowledge and expertise in the market made the real estate process enjoyable from start to finish. My family thinks so highly of John that we have used him on four different occasions. He is the epitome of a professional!"


"I was referred to John by our daughters who had worked with him to purchase weekend homes downtown. I found him to be knowledgeable, but not pushy, which is a rare trait these days. He gave me all the available data and his interpretation of the best opportunities. John is very no-nonsense and gives you the argument from multiple perspectives. When we made an offer, we felt prepared. We love our place, and the sunrise over downtown is incredible."


""I was very impressed with John's approach as our agent, especially in the area of selling. He offered great advice on staging our house and setting the pricing, and followed through with tremendous professionalism while showing our property. John always communicated to us when he'd be coming by to show the house, and made sure that he or someone from his group was always present at the showing. Further, when our financing fell through for the condo we were buying, John helped to arrange a loan in what must be record time for these days.""


"John and Dawn,"Thank you again for helping us to get our home sold so quickly in this market. Were enjoying New Mexico, but have so many memories of our years on Hood. We knew this was a tough market, but we appreciate your candor and advice. We really appreciate that you were willing to be honest with us about pricing and still cannot believe our home got two offers in 45 days. You made a tough process easier by being people we could trust. Thanks again.""


""John is extremely knowledgeable, conscientious and easy to do business with. He understood our requirements quickly and presented a good range of options for us to choose from in our own time.I would recommend working with John to family and friends and hope to do business with him again in the future.""


""I have recommended John to many friends, all of whom were extremely thankful for the service John provided. He's calm and friendly, and will give his honest opinion in all situations. Without hesitation, I would trust John 100 percent with any personal or business issue.""


""John is a down to earth, honest and personable agent. He operates with the highest level of integrity. I wouldn't want anyone else representing my interests in either a buy or sell scenario."


""I was very happy to have John Wyman work with me to sell my home. John scheduled all meetings and interactions at my convenience after work and on weekends. He provided me with outstanding advice about how to prepare my home for sale. He provided a profile on the house for people touring. He promptly returned all phone calls and had advertising in place as soon as possible. He worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation.""


"John helped my wife and I buy our condo in Chicago. We were first time home buyers and John was extremely patient with us as we learned the process. By listening to our needs, likes, and dislikes he was able to find us the perfect place. John's knowledge of Chicago and it's neighborhoods is extremely impressive. When we sell our condo I will definitely use John to sell it, as well as help us with the purchase of a new home. I have also referred John to friends in the past and they also have been very impressed with his industry knowledge and professionalism. You will not find a better agent in the Chicago-land area."


"I have worked with John over the last several years and found him to be extremely diligent, knowledgable, and very trustworthy. I would highly recommend John, as a realtor, to anyone who is looking to sell or buy real estate in the Chicagoland market"


"John helped my wife and I find a house in the Edgewater neighborhood a year ago. John, not only, showed us many houses, but showed us what we were looking for and stayed within the criteria. He was accommodating with schedules and kept what could be a stressful time in your life relatively calm. He is a professional and will find you what you need/want."


"When embarking on the journey to find a home that fit us as a couple, John Wyman's work was excellent. He first made an effort to know what it was that we were hoping for in our new home and what qualities of a home would allow us to flourish as a family. With his knowledge of the real estate market and the city of Chicago, he asked us to trust his with his recommendations. He challenged us a bit to think outside of our box and we could not be more grateful that he did. Because of his keen awareness of properties and neighborhoods, we have spent the past five years in an excellent community of neighbors and in a wonderfully comfortable and cozy home. We are truly steps to public transportation, farmers markets, cafe's, church, and my job. It is evident to us as his clients, that John takes the greatest pleasure in finding the perfect home for those he serves. He takes great pride in the city of Chicago and will always be able to give the history and background of this diverse city of neighborhoods. He is sincerely honest, reliable, and simply down to earth. We could not be more grateful to have a trusted agent and friend in John Wyman. I could not imagine trusting any one more than him when it comes to matters of real estate or finding the perfect home."


"We were extremely pleased with the entire process. The advice, hand-holding and responsiveness were excellent. There was never an issue of Mr. Wyman not being available to answer questions or just listen to our concerns and calm or first time seller jitters. And, most of all, we were very pleased with the sale price for the property!"



"Katie and John are a dynamic team. They listen to your concerns and ideas, and, direct you to prepare your home for a quick sale - which it will be. My home sold in 8 days, during the snowiest part of the winter. I highly recommend them to you."



"We met John at an open house, and immediately appreciated the fact that he did not employ high pressure tactics. So many other agents found ways to inject a false sense of urgency to buy quickly or a patronizing sense of "you aren't familiar with this market..." into our conversations. John treated us like adults through the entire process. He consistently offered valuable advice, and his unvarnished take on the market, and individual houses. He is a very savvy negotiator as well. We would be happy to recommend John to anyone looking for a realtor."



"John helped us to negotiate the best price for the property keeping in mind our purpose for buying the property and current market trends. Thank you for a job well done."



"I recently bought my first home. I was very intimidated by the market, and felt like I was brought into 'the know' when I began working with John. By my second offer, I felt confident in the process and felt like John was doing whatever it took to find me the home that was right for me, not the one that would get him a nice commission. I respect, appreciate, and am very thankful for the extra time and effort I feel was spent on finding me the right place to call home."



"John was incredibly professional, patient and knowledgeable. I couldn't have asked for a better experience."



"John Wyman was a joy to work with during my recent home sale !!! He was on top of all my questions and was in constant contact with updates on my property. Very professional !!! I would highly recommend him and his team. !!"



"John was wonderful to work with.He knew the market well and was able to answer all of our questions and offer great suggestions. Our sale came off without a hitch and without drama or stress. It was a pleasure working with John. We'd hire him again without question"


"Ann was a wonderful agent. I can't say enough good things about her. She was extremely friendly and professional. She responded to all our questions quickly at any hour of the day and was very accommodating with times to meet in person. She also made the transition to the condo smooth and seamless."


"Ann went above and beyond what was expected of her. She was available anytime and anywhere to make sure our experience was perfect. We ended up with our number 1 choice and a lot of credit is owed to Ann. Her knowledge of the city was instrumental in our finding the perfect area. We will be return customers"



"Ann was fantastic! For a young couple moving to Chicago for the first time, she really made us feel welcome to the city and confident with our decision to move here. She was professional, honest, and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Ann and @properties to anyone looking for a place to hang their hat in the windy city!"



"Excellent service, communication great, completely satisfied. Helped to get the house ready to sell which was very helpful as house was estate and executor lived out of town."


"We were very happy with John and working with his team. It is a big decision to sell your home. I had discussed it with John over a period of time and while he showed interest he was never super pushy like so many sales experiences are these days. When it came time to actually put our house on the market, we didn't really want a bunch of open houses and were hoping we could sell without that experience. John proposed a plan, gave us our marching orders about getting the house ready (which was reasonable, some agents want you to practically remodel the place) and had potential purchasers in the home shortly. John, being an expert in Edgewater, knew of several clients who were specifically looking for homes in our area. We had a contract within a week and the selling experience from that point forward was pretty easy. John and his staff took care of the details and we could just focus on moving, etc. Thanks John and team. We will definitely use you again if we buy in the Chicagoland area."



"Katie is extremely caring and patient in helping me find the perfect place. She was always prompt & courteous during the search. I really appreciated that she was available to answer all my questions. She's AWESOME!!"


"John Wyman is an exceptional Broker. His knowledge of the housing market and being a born and raised Chicagoan has been invaluable to my housing search. I couldn't have done it without him and his team."


"I would personally like to thank John and his team for an exceptional job in marketing and selling our home. John and his team are very educated and easy to work with and will bend over backwards to help you throughout the process. When I first started looking for a realtor I walked around the neighborhood and the most signs I saw were from @Properties mainly for John and his team. I talked to neighbors and our neighborhood church who highly recommended John. Johns experience and reputation were very important and we worked well together throughout the process of selling our home. The marketing process in place for the home through brochures, websites and mailings was extremely informative. I was notified of every showing and if I was not available John and his team would be available for appointments at our home. I wish John and his team at @Properties all the best in the future."


"Our situation required a quick and simple sale of our property while we were away in another state. John and his team were professional, informed, and efficient in addressing our needs and helping to get us to "sold"."


"We cannot thank John enough for everything he did over the past several months to help us through our first home-buying venture...there is positively no way we could have made it without his support, patience, and guidance. I have a few friends scattered throughout the Midwest who have recently purchased homes, and the stories I hear about their experiences with the process makes me feel all the more lucky that we had such an amazing team advocating for us every step of the way. The words 'professional' and 'supportive' do not do justice to the qualities John and his team encompass, but they were that and more every minute, and I cannot say enough how much we appreciated it. We are beyond excited about the building we landed, and will be forever grateful for the positive experience we had acquiring it, due to John."


"Katie was an excellent partner in the sale of our condo. She listened and advised in an informed and understanding way. She answered all of our questions in a very timely manner and navigated the entire process with knowledge and ease. She's is incredibly helpful and absolutely wonderful to work with!"



"Katie is the best! As I stated in a prior survey, Katie was very thorough and checked in regularly throughout the process. I enjoyed working with her and would highly recommend her to anyone."


"Ann is a fantastic broker who really knows her stuff. She listened, she was patient with our process, and found us exactly what we were looking for in a home. She was always available, and her communication with us was fabulous. I would use Ann again and again!"


"Ann Carson was one of the best people we dealt with. She was so welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. She was prompt with responses to any questions we had and a great liason between us and the building. She made this whole experience amazing."


"It was incredible working with Ann to recently purchase a condo and rent out our previous condo. I love not only her warmth and sense of humor, but also her diligence and impressive follow up. Ann navigated us through the complex processes, and was always available to answer our many questions. Her efficiency and experience contributed to us closing earlier than anticipated, as well as finding excellent renters with a very quick turnaround time. I look forward to working with Ann on our future real estate endeavors, and have already referred her to others."
