Testimonials:

“Karl did an amazing job with the purchase of our new home and sale of our condo! He was instrumental in helping us understand the market dynamics, determining price, and getting our condo in condition to be sold! He is a true pro and I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor. In a down market, our condo was under contract in two weeks, which my husband and I largely credit to Karl. We are incredibly grateful for him for all of his work.” D.R. Lincoln Park seller and buyer

“Karl was a pleasure to work with. He was able to identify exactly what we were looking for in a home and community while meeting our tight budget. His experience made the buying and selling process a lot less stressful as he was able to easily answer any questions that we had. Karl has a keen eye for design and architectual preservation, which was important to us both in selling our home built in 1892, and finding a new one that fits us perfectly.” A.B. Evanston buyer, Hyde Park seller

Karl was fantastic. He was a huge help in telling me what things needed upgrades before putting on the market and also staging the unit. We were able to sell quickly and at top price. I was able to get 3 great offers and the final sale price was $25,000 more than a very similar unit that sold just a couple months before. I would highly recommend Karl to anyone buying or selling in Chicago” B.V. Andersonville seller, Bowmanville buyer
