"Paul couldn't have done a better job. His pricing research was excellent, his work ethic and business acumen were great. I would happily recommend Paul to anyone looking for a terrific agent."



"Paul was exceptional throughout the process. Personable, efficient, flexible, and prompt. Our needs changed multiple times and he rolled with it easily, never making us feel bad we had decided to go in a different direction. He is very responsive to email and phone calls, never left me wondering what was going on. He went above an beyond, showing up for our final walk through at 7am even though he had a commitment for a charity race at 8:30am. Now that's service! I look forward to referring friends to Paul and working with him again the next time we need a broker."



"Paul was affable, professional and always available to me. He knew the current market trends. He worked seamlessly with my lawyer, the buyer's realtor and the buyer's mortgage consultant. He's the consummate pro."



"My fiancé and I could not have been more happy with Paul. He was honest, effective, and insightful. We went from closely looking at a home in the $400,000 range to buying a home well under $300,000 and he worked just as hard the entire time. As first time homebuyers, he made everything clear and was always reachable for questions. We feel so much more comfortable knowing that in the next 5-7 years when we look to sell our starter home we will have an outstanding listing agent and real estate agent. Thank you again Paul for you outstanding/hard work!

"Paul is one of the most professional and efficient broker I have ever worked with, I would highly recommend him to anyone in the future. Thanks Paul."



"Paul rocked! Paul was extremely insightful and intuitive when it came to finding the kind of apartment I had in mind. Little time was wasted as a result of his expertise and the fact that he had put together a short list of properties based on the info he gathered from me during our initial conversation. I believe Paul has a thorough knowledge of the city and a talent for listening and then filling his clients needs. I highly recommend him and will, should the need arise, definitely use him again."

His keen eye for detail helped us make improvements to our condo prior to sale which led to having our property on the market for less than a day. He walked us through the process from listing to close and was a pleasure to work with. We will highly recommend Paul any chance we get."

Paul's knowledge is surpassed only by his personable nature. He feels it's his responsibility to find the right place for his clients and does so with class, charm, and tenacity.

I would recommend him to anyone interested in a real estate transaction.

Thanks Paul!"

"I've bought or sold over 10 properties and Paul is the best agent I ever had, by far. I needed carpeting and painting, and he had carpet samples in his trunk and a reasonably-priced painter who came 3 days later. The listing photos were great, he prequalified the buyers, he made great suggestions on prices, he knows the area...just a fantastic realtor and we'll be using him again in the future. I give him 10 stars out of 5."

He let me make decisions but gave great guidance along the way on what to do and how to do it. When it came time to the closing he acted quickly and worked in the background to make sure everything went smooth and no issues arrived. I would highly recommend working with Paul in the future and would certainly use him again!"


"When Paul was referred to us, we were told that he is absolutely great to work with - and our experience with him not only met that expectation, but truly far exceeded it. From the beginning, he was patient and knowledgeable, sharing his insight and expertise, and giving us the time needed to assess our own needs and desires when it came to buying a home for our family. Throughout this home buying process, and it truly is a process (what we thought we wanted in the beginning changes throughout the search as we learn more and see more of what is out there) - Paul tirelessly and patiently showed us homes, never pushed us along; rather he worked on our pace. When it came to making an offer, he combined his knowledge about real estate with his knowledge about what we wanted, to make our home happen! He is always responsive to emails and phone calls, made showings happen as quic! kly as we wanted them to, and he continues to offer his expertise whenever we need it. We'll always appreciate Paul for making the journey to our dream first home possible."

"Paul is amazing. He knows everything about the market and buying process. He was always quick to respond and never let me worry about a thing. Absolutely great buying experience."


"Our broker, Paul Ragi, was amazing. He is unquestionably the best broker I have ever worked with. He was knowledgeable, helped guide decision making, helpful in negotiations, knew the market very well. When entering a property, he would inspect and ask many questions that we did not know to ask. He approached every property as if he was going to buy it himself. He would steer us away from properties/sellers/agents that he saw issues with and we felt no pressure to make decisions or to conduct the search at our own pace. After getting to know our tastes, he even was able to bring us back to reality when we were expressed interested in a property, but he knew we wouldn't be happy with in the end. He was always professional and very accessible at any time of the day. If anyone out there is looking for a broker, you should stop looking and contact Paul. You will not be disappointed."


"Paul is amazing to work with! He was always incredibly responsive and always had our best interest in mind. There was never any pressure to look at anything outside of our target neighborhoods or price range, which we really appreciated. Paul helped make our home-buying process fun instead of stressful."

"Paul has an in-depth knowledge of the Chicago real estate market. This, coupled with his strong analytical approach and networking ability, helped me get a good deal not only in the condo purchase, but also in some remodeling work. I highly recommend Paul - he is not just a broker but a real partner in your real-estate shopping."

"Paul simply surpassed our expectations for a real estate agent. He was very professional, communicated often and was a pleasure to work with. Being first time home buyers is stressful and overwhelming at times, but Paul was the perfect agent to ease our minds and guide us through the process. My highest recommendation."


"From start to finish, Paul Ragi was there to make the whole process (which can tend to be stressful) as easy as possible on my life. He was super professional, highly knowledgeable & very responsive as well as patient. At the end of the day, I couldn't imagine doing it without him. I would recommend him to family and friends."


"I was very pleased with the level of professionalism provided by Paul Ragi. He came in with a team that took pictures of the building and drew up the room dimensions so that a virtual walk through could be presented. He did the market analysis necessary to provide me with a proper price point and was able to get me four solid offers within a week of listing. I couldn't be happier with the service provided."


"Paul is the BEST! I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. He really knows his stuff and makes sure that you're completely informed every step of the way. I bought my condo via short sale, and it took over nine months close! Despite the long wait, Paul was always extremely responsive and diligent in providing updates. He was always willing to go the extra mile, even at one point driving practically to Milwaukee to drop off a check for part of the closing. This was my first time buying property, and he really the process as easy as possible. Highly highly recommend."

"Paul Ragi was awesome! My wife and I had a very limited time in Chicago to find a place. Not knowing the city, we gave him a general idea what we were looking for on day one. After day one, we changed are specs a bit and he immediately lined up three properties the next day. My wife fell in love with one property, and since her vote is the only one that counts, we were able to make an offer and execute a deal. I am meeting with Paul on Monday to do the final walk through. Paul has a great personality and sense of humor - made us feel real comfortable with Chicago!"
