"Lee Cherney & Levi Frerichs are outstanding brokers in the Chicago market. We were recommended to them by a friend who had recently worked with them to buy a property. Start to finish, they couldn't have been more professional and responsive, and always had great advice and insight into the market. We ended up with exactly what we wanted in terms of property, price, terms, amenities, etc... and we certainly owe most of that to their expertise. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy, sell, rent, etc...their knowledge and experience is very impressive. January 21, 2014"

"Lee was very professional and knowledgeable about the neighborhoods we were interested in. He was not pushy and very patient with us and our questions. He delicately encouraged us to look at another home while we were trying to bid on another house that he felt was not in the right neighborhood for us. He was right and we are so glad we followed his advice and walked away from the first house and purchased the house we are now in. We love the neighborhood and the house price/value was much better.

"Lee was a pleasure to work with and did a good job of creating a buzz and getting us full price offers twice. We wish communication could have been a little better throughout the process regarding the circumstances surrounding the people who made the initial offer that ultimately fell through.

"Arielle helped me purchase my first property in the U.S. Being a foreign national, I was not sure how to start and where to start. She was extremely patient with me, took a lot of time explaining the process repeatedly and thoroughly. Since I have never lived in Chicago before, I was not sure which neighborhoods would be a good fit for me. She was very knowledgeable about the different areas in Chicago and guided me choose the location. I have an English Bulldog/Oscar, I was amazed the way she kept Oscar in mind and always showed me the properties that were close to the dog parks. I had to drive 2 hours every time I needed to tour the condos, since I lived about 120 miles away from Chicago. She was very well organized and planned in such a way that I was able to see all the condos that I could for the day. I never felt rushed, never felt delayed!She has excellent communication skills, I was able to notice that during the negotiation process. I can't thank her enough for bringing down the purchase price significantly. Overall, it was an amazing experience working with Arielle. She is very talented, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to everyone."

Her experience being a landlord has a great deal of value for anyone looking to purchase an investment property."
