"PJ was a pleasure to work with and his knowledge of the Chicago real estate market is impeccable. As a first time homebuyer, PJ relied on his years of experience in the industry to guide me through every aspect of the process, start to finish. Even if you are not sure what you are specifically looking for, he offers a breadth of resources to help you narrow the parameters of your search. PJ"



"PJ was great to work with! He helped us negotiate the transition and finding a home in the suburbs that we love, even when it meant a number of changes in direction along the way. PJ was a great resource in navigating the purchase and ensuring we remained competitive with our offers, while not overpaying. His experience was extremely valuable as we toured homes, pointing out things that we would have missed and helping to keep the perspective about how the house would serve us in years to come. Throughout the process he was straightforward, candid, and always responsive. We would highly recommend working with PJ."


"We are about to complete our sixth transaction with PJ as our realtor and while we hope to be in our new home for a long time, we wouldn't hesitate to work with him again given the need. He is incredibly responsive and reliable. I don't think I've ever called him without him picking up on the 2nd ring. He is honest and helps you understand your buying or selling process, things that come up in inspection and he even had some tough conversations for us so we didn't have to. Highly recommend PJ to anyone who wants a smooth buying or selling experience."



"I appreciate PJs attention to details when walking through the houses. He troubleshoots possible issues and gives us honest feedback on whether a home is a good purchase. He is always available for questions and is extremely patient. I’ve trusted PJ guiding me through the purchase and selling of my Chicago condo and my house in the suburbs. He knows the city and the western burbs well. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a trustworthy agent."



"As first time homer buyers, my fiancé and I did not know what to expect when buying our first home . PJ made this experience easy and stress free. We cannot say enough great things about PJ and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home."



"Always available and responds promptly. No fluff, straight to the chase, and hard worker. Was referred from a friend and definitely was not disappointed. We got a full price offer on our condo in less than 24 hours! I would highly recommend him to anyone in the market of Chicago looking to sell or buy."



"I had the pleasure of working with PJ Duffy twice; once to buy my condo in Chicago and then again to sell that same unit 11 years later. When I sold my condo last year I was living in NYC and PJ handled the process from beginning to end with very little input or assistance from me.
PJ is a true real estate professional: knowledgeable about the market and trends, creative in his strategies, approachable and always responsive. His negotiation skills garnered me an offer that I was very happy with and ultimately accepted. He also recommended a lawyer and team of professionals to assist me in my remote sale.
I highly recommend PJ as an outstanding real estate professional on both the buying and selling side. Thank you, PJ!"



"PJ was a great agent to work with when buying our first home. Being new to the process, we had a lot of questions and weren't really sure what we wanted or needed. PJ was there for us through the entire process. He showed a lot of different properties to us and was always open and honest about the things he saw and reason why we should or shouldn't consider the place. He never once was pushy or impatient and didn't come off as just looking for a commission on the sale. I would highly recommend to PJ to anybody looking for a great, honest, and professional agent!"



"PJ is amazing!

My husband and I needed to find a house quickly due to an issue with our previous living situation. With PJ's constant communication and knowledge of the market we were able to find and put in an offer on a house in 8 days! We were first time home buyers and had very little knowledge of the house buying process. PJ was readily available to answer our questions and always gave us his honest opinion of homes we were viewing.

PJ has helped two other members of my family find homes in the recent years and we have already referred him to friends. I will continue to recommend him to people in the years to come for both downtown Chicago and suburban locations."


"PJ is a truly outstanding agent. He personifies "going the extra mile" for his clients. He completed an extremely difficult and time consuming deal for us and did so while we were living out of state. He took care of dozens of issues that popped up during the time we were trying to sell. I highly recommend PJ. Indeed, I give him the absolute highest recommendation. The service provided my typical agents (and we've dealt with many) utterly pale in comparison to the service and responsiveness of PJ. I can't say enough about how much he helped us and the lengths to which he went to finalize this deal."


"PJ was excellent from the initial stages of listing my place right through the closing. He made helpful suggestions of how best to stage it for showings, was extremely communicative throughout the entire process, and used his negotiation skills to get me the very best deal possible for my home. I would absolutely recommend PJ to other prospective buyers and sellers, and will gladly use him for future transactions."


"P.J. is an extremely knowledgeable real estate agent, as he was able to provide me with all of the information I needed as a first time home buyer. He is well informed about the different neighborhoods in the city, different qualities that make a home a good or potentially bad investment, and what I could afford based on my finances. P.J. also did an excellent job at taking all of my requirements for my home into account, and showed me many different options that included those requirements. After we found the home of my dreams, P.J. was a talented negotiator, and was able to bring the original price of my home down considerably. P.J. is the type of person who is willing to go the extra mile to make sure his client is satisfied, which really meant a lot to me. Thanks to P.J., my journey to home ownership was an extremely easy and positive experience!!!"


"I met PJ when we purchased our condo in 2006, when we were the buyers, and he was the seller's agent. PJ blew us away by the professionalism he possessed while showing a home. He was there to greet us in professional attire, had music playing in the condo, and was able to answer many questions about the property. When we made the decision to list our condo in September 2008, there was no doubt in our minds that we wanted PJ to list our property. I knew in these "tough" times everything counts as far as the presentation of the property, including having a professional realtor. PJ and Craig made the sale of our condo much easier than we anticipated. We listed our home and relocated to another state, so the home was basically in their hands during the sale process. They checked in on the condo regularly, and made sure it was always showable. They gave us prompt feedback on showings, and emailed regularly with data as to how often people were looking at our property on various websites. PJ and Craig were realistic with us about our listing price, and did research for us to support their thoughts. Our initial offer came in very low. However, through their negotiating techniques, they were actually able to get us more than our "bottom line." I would recommend PJ and Craig to anyone in the Chicago area. It's pretty amazing that we were able to list our home in September 2008, and had a contract on it by December 24th, 2008, given the economic conditions, and the overall real estate market. I think this in itself speak extremely highly of this team."


"PJ definitely knows how to stage a condo as well as market one. He sold our condo to the first person who saw it!"



"PJ was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the sale process. He was a trusted advisor during this process."
