Testimonials

"Michael did an amazing job! From day one he treated me like a high priced customer even though I was on the lower end. He was always available when I had questions, scheduled showings last minute, and even picked me up for every showing. He truely made me feel like a valued customer and friend. I would recommend him to every person looking to buy or sell in Chicago!"



"From listing consultation to closing Michael was focused on helping deliver the best results for the sale of our Chicago South Loop condo. He selected and engaged a talented photographer to produce high quality images of our home, thoroughly researched comparable listings and sales in our neighborhood to recommend an optimal market price, facilitated the negotiation process to get a most desirable offer, and closely monitored the buyer's inspection, appraisal and lending process to ensure there were not de-railers prior to close of escrow. Our home was on the market less than a week before receiving and accepting an offer and as a result of excellent marketing our home sold at one of the highest prices per square foot in our building."



"As a first-time homebuyer, I was happy to put my trust in the expertise and experience of Michael. It goes without saying that Michael has a strong business acumen and puts the needs of the buyer first which often times is hard to come by in the real estate world. From the start of the search to close, the process with Michael took about two months. We were able to locate and find places to view quickly due to Michael's hands-on approach. I'd highly recommend Michael to any type of homebuyer!"



"Michael went above and beyond every step of the way. He handled everything, and was very accommodating to my schedule and not physically being in Chicago. I highly recommend him."



"I had an amazing experience with Michael! Throughout my entire home search he followed up with me daily and made me feel like I was his only client. He had my best interest in mind and helped me find my first home which I am in love with! I Will definitely keep referring Michael to all my friends and family"



"As a novice to the whole condo sale process, I was a bit nervous and overwhelmed by the process ahead of me. But Michael Tatar made the entire process a breeze. His advice and recommendations were spot-on - everything from setting a price to choosing a real estate attorney. He consistently went above and beyond what I thought an agent could do. I am most impressed with his professional service, availability, and attention to every detail. I highly recommend him!"

"Michael is the best. He is very professional and very friendly. Always helpful and very responsive."



"Michael, was fantastic. He provided superior customer service, and was always willing to assist in any way possible."



"Michael is the best. Even the seller said that he is the most professional real estate agent he has ever seen. He helped me throughout the whole process. He was always on top of things and very professional. I would work with him anytime."



"Michael was incredibly helpful to me in my search, so much so that I referred some of my friends to him as well. If I ever need to move again, Michael is the person I will go to for help with finding my next place to live. I have nothing but good things to say about his helpfulness and dedication to his work."


"Michael was the best! It was like we were his only client. He was very responsive, calling us almost each day with updates. He was a pleasure to work with and we will be calling him for our next real estate adventure."


"Michael was a pleasure to work with in finding our new home. We especially appreciated his honesty when, while looking at our first few properties, he pointed out flaws that we would have otherwise overlooked. He made us feel confident that he had our best interest, and not just a commission in mind. I'd also like to provide a qualification for why I rated his local knowledge as "extensive" instead of "masterful." He was very familiar with the area we were looking in initially; however we shifted focus to an area he was less familiar with. He stuck with us through this process, doing a lot of research and expert consultation to learn more about the area. Also, in terms of negotiation, we did not get the first few properties we bid on. However we were looking at popular areas during peak buying season. As first time home buyers, it was hard for us to tell whether Michael could have done anything differently or whether this experience was a reflection of the competitiveness of the market. Ultimately, we ended up being overjoyed with the condo we did get and we couldn't see ourselves anywhere else."



"Michael went above and beyond helping us find our place. We needed to find property under a very tight timeline. Michael was very patient and extremely helpful throughout the process. He gives his honest opinions and enabled us to make the independent decisions. This is very important to me. Michael was also very responsive, always made himself available to assist and took the time to explain the process to us. He gave us the valuable suggestions which helped us make the decision. I would highly recommend Michael as an agent."


"We almost literally bumped into Michael at an open house one Sunday. As it turned out, we wanted to see another property that his agency had. We knew no one, so called Michael. He jumped into action and arranged that showing, as well as some others. We ultimately chose a smaller, less expensive condo that needed lots of realtor input, insight and guidance on the transaction. The unit was not only a fixer-upper, it ended up appraising for less than our offer. Michael helped us negotiate with the seller's agent and helped guide us through that dilemma. What we really appreciated was Michael's network and resources. He always utilized that network to help provide insight and guidance on complicated issues that he had not previously encountered (it was an odd transaction full of issues for a relatively small purchase price). He also provided craftsman referrals utilizing those resources, in particular a wood floor refinisher who did a fantastic job!The last thing I would say about Michael is that for us, we not only found a realtor, we made a friend. He was very easy and fun to work with, and was extremely responsive, which from my background is highly valued. I would highly recommend working with Michael if you have a chance!"


"I really enjoyed working with Michael. He knew exactly what I was looking for and was able to find it for me in the area that I wanted. He made me feel confident that he genuinely cared about finding a place that met all of my needs. Since I am new to the city, he gave me some awesome pointers about the neighborhoods and parking. He was very attentive and quick to respond at any time of day, and was willing to go out of his way to help me out with some finishing touches on the apartment. He was also able to negotiate in my favor with the property owner's real estate broker to minimize my expenses. Michael has made a process, that I thought would be stressful, feel easy and I really appreciate that because moving to a new city and starting a new job is stressful enough. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone looking to buy or rent in Chicago"


"I was a first time home buyer. Michael felt like a partner in the process to me more than an agent. He followed up on any question I had about the process immediately. He is passionate about real estate and it shows in all my interactions with him and the agency. He was consultative and never salesy nor pushy. He really listened intently to what my objectives were and what type of property & neighborhood I was after. Michael is a tremendous resource for any buyer or seller, @Properties is fortunate to have such a kind, professional and thorough agent on their team."


"Michael was a great broker that knew the area and got a feel for what properties I was looking for. He was available for tours and also went above and beyond to look at properties that also fit my criteria. After putting in an offer, Michael made the whole buying process very easy and was very responsive with any questions I had. I would definitely recommend him and @ properties to others."


"We met Michael while we were wandering around visiting several open houses one Sunday afternoon. He introduced himself and said that if we were looking for an agent, he would be happy to help us out. We contacted Michael the next week and so it all began. Michael was very helpful throughout the entire house searching/buying process. He was always available to answer our questions and was quick to respond to calls, emails, or texts. As first time home buyers who were completely ignorant of the home buying process, Michael was great to work with. At no time, did we ever feel like we were asking silly questions (even though I know at least a few of our questions were, indeed, silly). He made us feel comfortable and seemed to really enjoy finding us a new home. If you are looking for an agent with a laid back feel, but is super responsive, Michael is your guy. I would definitely recommend him"

"Michael was professional and responsive. He took the stress out of relocating to Chicago and helped me find an apartment that feels like home. He was the only person out of 5 other agencies that I contacted that bothered to follow-up with me"


"I had been searching for a place for awhile, and Michael did what all other places took a week to do in one day! Fantastic service! He found a variety of properties in great neighborhoods, all within our price range, most with fantastic amenities included. I can't recommend a better person to help search for a place to live. After many previous rental agency experiences, I can say with certainty that @properties is the way to go!"
