""Mark was totally on top of things when it came to selling our Oak Park condominium, From our initial meeting with him right up to the closing, he handled his side of the transaction with courtesy and professionalism. He was very prompt to respond to our questions and he allayed many of our fears. We would recommend him to anyone looking for an agent they can have complete confidence in.""


"Don't think about working with any other realtor in the city of Chicago! Mark is the absolute best. We bought our house with him 3 years ago, and there was no question he was the guy to help us sell it. Mark is a man that you trust completely through out the home selling/buying process, someone that has a proven history of excellence and success, and a person that is just downright fun to work with. Without hesitation, I would (and have already) recommend to any family or friends."

"Mark was great at promoting our property ahead of the listing resulting in strong early interest and being under contract in 6 days."


"Mark is the best realtor you can have in Chicago. No one works as closely with his clients as he does. I have used him previously on a purchase and most recently on the sale of my condo. From tips on staging and freshening up the condo all the way thru the close of sale he was there to help answer any question. I highly recommend him."

"My wife and I were first time home buyers. A friend recommended Mark when we decided we were ready to buy a home. We looked at 13 properties in a month with Mark. We put offers in for 3 of those, finally the third place worked out. Any time I had a question he got back quickly with what we needed. Every time we worked with him in person Mark was slick, professional, and fun. The last place we offered on was being sold by the buyer with no agent. Our offer was below the asking price. He knew exactly what to say. Mark sold the seller on us and got the deal done. I was really glad we had him on our side."

"Words will not do Mark Fischer justice. From our first meeting up to the closing Mark was right there. I knew that he always had my best interest at heart. The house I was selling was my family's home. My grandmother and grandfather bought it when they came here from Poland. My mom and dad lived in it for some 60 years and raised 6 kids. I was the last sibling to live in the 3 flat. It was a very emotional decision for me but I knew it was time to sell. It was my lucky day when I met Mark Fischer. His work ethic is unbeatable, his dedication unremarkable, his compassion always present. Thank you Mark for making a difficult a whole lot easier."


"We've used Mark as our broker for years and have always been very pleased with the results."



"Mark was fabulous. He managed to deal with my husband and I with humor and grace. He knew when his opinion was desired and when to remain quiet. He got us into see places that were off market by making phone calls and pulling strings. When he sent us listings he did not use the generic tag lines but instead specified why he was sending us that specific property. For instance, he would write "In Mann school district". The house we ended up buying he wrote "Welcome Home." when he sent over the listing. Clearly, he was in tune with what was we were looking for and got the job done. We closed yesterday and he was there every step of the way. Happy clients!"



"I want to personally thank Mark Fischer for his hard work and exceptional service he provided during the purchase of my condominium."


"Mark did a great job!I look forward to doing more transactions with him in the future."


"Mark was a tremendous help and pleasure to work with, from beginning to end. Being a first time buyer in Chicago, I was pretty nervous and had a ton of questions. Mark was extremely patient throughout the whole process and did not push me on any property he felt did not fit my needs or was not a great deal. He also made himself available at all hours of the day to answer my questions or just listen to my concerns. Being from the Chicago area and living in the city now, Mark has a extensive knowledge of the area. Mark helped me get a great deal on the property I ended up buying and I could not be happier.I have no complaints about Mark. He was referred to me by a friend, and I can see why. I will certainly be recommending Mark to anyone I know looking to buy in Chicago and will be giving him a call when I'm looking to rent or sell my current place. Thanks again!"


"Mark Fischer was patient, thoughtful, hardworking, passionate, and easily-accessible. I cannot imagine going through this process with any different broker. He has a lifelong client in me."


"Mark Fischer was great throughout the whole process. As first time home buyers, he answered every question we had and helped explain the entire home buying process to us so we clearly understood all the details. We never had a problem working with him and enjoyed sharing the entire home buying process with Mark. We would definitely use Mark again, whether buying or selling a home."


"My wife and I entered our first home buying experience with little knowledge of the entire process. Mark provided excellent guidance, answers, and support every step of the way. We always had clear lines of communication open to us, and we felt very comfortable with the advice and insights he offered.He demonstrated an extremely high level of professionalism that we truly appreciated, in addition to excellent resources and contacts, many of which we used.We highly recommend anyone in the Chicago area looking for a home to give Mark a call or e-mail."


"Mark was a rockstar throughout the whole process. He took me to see places in some of the worst winter weather ever, and had a great positive attitude the whole time. Questions got answered promptly, and as a first time buyer that was critical for me."



"Mark is the consummate sales professional. He kept us abreast of any and all activity around the sale of our home, and he even was proactive when the initial marketing efforts weren't received as well as we originally hoped. His attention to us delivered a buyer to us faster than expected and at 97% of our asking price. I recommend Mark without hesitation."

""Mark Fischer is a terrific RealtorĀ®. From our first meeting/interview with Mark we were impressed at how prepared he was - he had researched the home market in our area and was up to speed on the market in general. He was able to answer all our questions, give sound and educated advice yet allowing us to make the decisions that would best work for our family. We were so pleased with the thorough work Mark did for us and the warm and caring way in which he did it, that our daughter used Mark a short time after the sale of our home to purchase a condo. Again in the purchase process Mark did his "home work" and she was able to get just the right location and price for her needs. We highly recommend Mark whether you are selling or buying - he is a great realtor and an asset to you in the process!" -Peter and Christine Kolb"



"Mark has created a business philosophy that truly works for his clients. He carefully listened to our needs as both a seller and a buyer in the current real estate market. He was acutely in tune with understanding what my husband and I wanted in a new home and helped us find a solution that made us both happy. Mark came to the listing meeting extremely prepared and provided us with a multitude of recent comps within our immediate neighborhood. He understands the demands of a busy family with children and used our time efficiently when it came to showing our home as well as scheduling time for us to look for a new home. Overall, Mark is exceptionally responsive, professional and knowledgeable of the current market trends. He was a pleasure to work with and we will continue to be a repeat client. Cortney & Jonas Paretzkin"



""As a first-time co-op buyer in Chicago, I could not have asked for a better agent. From our first introductory phone call, which came to Mark from left field, Mark demonstrated a high level of energy, engagement, competence, and professionalism -- traits that never waned or faded throughout the process. As grueling and tiring as home-hunting can be, Mark brought deep industry knowledge, a high level of energy, and healthy dose of humor to the process, which actually made an otherwise daunting and taxing process fun.Throughout the entire process, Mark was ever-available. He's got incredible work ethic and tremendous bandwidth. He's quick to respond to emails and phone calls. With Mark, clients are always in the loop and never left "hanging." For me, these were all tremendously important and critical attributes in an agent, and Mark had all of them.Moreover, as a very seasoned real estate professional, Mark knows the business inside and out. He's able to analyze quickly a situation or an aspect of the transaction and provide a very accurate assessment or opinion, while always remaining respectful, tactful, and professional. He's able to identify quickly his client's level of real estate expertise and to "talk" real estate at a level commensurate with his client's level of understanding.Without question, I will turn to Mark again when I do my next real estate deal. And I would recommend him highly to others. Feel free to contact me for a personal reference.Maurice L. Crescenzi, Jr."



""We hired Mark to rent our condo, while living out of state. We never had to think twice about the marketing, coordination, negotiation, or the end result. With just a few emails and phone calls, the entire transaction was taken care of. Mark gets it. He quickly understood us and our situation, and got the job done."

"Dear Mr. Golden, I just wanted to take a second to applaud the efforts of Mark Fischer. He worked closely with me to rent out my condo unit 3001S. Michigan Avenue, Unit #1505. At first I was hesitant about using a company to assist me in finding a tenant, as I realize the time and effort in listing a rental may not be as glorious or lucrative as a listing to sell. However, Mark always made me feel that my property was his top priority and he always made time for me. My only regret is that I didn't contact Mark sooner! I live out of state and so had to conduct this business from afar, but felt completely assured by Mark the entire time. He always had a very clear plan of action on marketing strategies, showings, and in the end the process of signing the final lease agreements. My concerns were always promptly addressed by him on numerous occasions and he explained everything clearly and patiently. He is energetic, friendly and very efficient. By next year I will likely be listing the property to sale and would love to work with him again. A few of my friends and family members are also looking to sell in the near future and I have already passed along his information. Mark is truly an asset to @properties. Thank you for a great experience with your company and staff. Sincerely, Maren Wiseheart"



"Rating: 10Comments:"Mark was a great source of knowledge as well as support through out our home buying process. He was well informed of the market and our specific location; as first time home buyers my husband and I were comforted by his level of experience, which showed in his patience and professionalism.

""Mark was extremely helpful from the beginning of our home-buying process right up until close. Any time my wife and I had a question (which was often), Mark was available to provide us with a quick answer and guide us through to the best decision. We cannot recommend him enough. He will look out for your best interests and will tell you his honest opinion in any situation.""



""Mark's professionalism, marketing savvy and diligence were put to the test on my sale. with challenging selling conditions i could not have made a better choice. showings with only the best and most qualified buyers and when it came time to negotiating, i was truly impressed.""



""Mark is a real pro in Chicago real estate market. He is responsive, understands your need, and gives sound advices. He met with me the first time to get a feel of my budget, the area that I want to live in and my requirements. The listings he provided were pretty much hit the target. When I decided to make an offer on my current home, it was a relatively competitive process, but his experience and negotiation skill helped me set a price and eventually won the offer. I'd recommend Mark to friends who are considering buying a home in Chicago."Sincerely, Sylvia"
