About Me

For Michael John Ferry, being a real estate agent is more than just about buying and selling property.  It’s about helping people find a place to call home.  From a starter house to a retirement property, each purchase is a momentous occasion, and Michael John is honored to be involved.  Having specific expertise in five counties in and around Chicago, Michael John is committed to providing honest, personalized services for all clients, from first-time homebuyers to seasoned investors.

Clients are saying:

"Michael John helped me buy my new home. It's my 20th home, so I'm experienced, but there is nothing better than having a thoroughly knowledgeable and professional broker at your side during this process. Particularly during a crazy market like spring/summer 2021! Michael knows the business backward and forward and is absolutely committed to obtaining the very best value for his client. He took the time to understand the kind of property that I wanted, but encouraged me to view an array of possibilities. I could not recommend him higher - he will make the entire process better - if you are buying or selling. He's the best!"
