"As we begin working with colleagues on their relocation to Chicago, I want you to know how thoroughly pleased I am with my broker, Bob Adolfson from @properties. He listened well to understand my needs and preferences and knows the market, so he was great at helping me identify a range of options that would work for Rick and me. He gave us the kind of candid, straightforward insight and perspective that really helped me trust his judgment. He is incredibly responsive; I think he works all the timecheerfullyand always got back to us very quickly when we had questions or wanted to talk. And hes just a really nice guy whos great to be around, which is important when youre going to log a lot of time in his company. He really proved his mettle this weekend as we zeroed in on our property and then negotiated our deal. He was a great thinking partner, with really good strategic instincts. And when the negotiations got complicated (as they always seem to dowhy is that???) he fought hard for us but in a manner that we would say was fully in keeping with our ADM values--with exemplary integrity and respect. As you know, we were successful. So, great guy, great experience, great outcome. I think other ADM colleagues will really enjoy and benefit from working with him."



"The sale of my home was via a Relocation with my company. To add more difficulties, I sold the home while in another state. To add more to the issue, I had a pipe burst causing water damage. Through all of this Bob worked hard to resolve the issues and ultimately sell my home. I highly reccommend him. Chas."



"We had an EXCELLENT experience working with Bob and highly recommend him whether you're buying or selling your home. Bob was very knowledgeable about our neighborhood and priced our home to sell. We were under contract within 2 weeks! He also had referrals for us to use to make necessary repairs to our home to prepare for sale. Be sure to take his advice regarding staging - I'm sure it made the difference is getting our home under contract within a matter of days. Bob is friendly, knowledgeable and responsive! Our negotiation and sale process was seamless. We will certainly reach out to him for future real estate transactions and recommend you do the same for yours!"



"Bob does it again! A week to the day my property went on the market, Bob had it under contract for exactly the price I wanted AFTER receiving multiple bids from which I could take my pick. It was an investment property that turned out to be a great gamble for me, especially with such a quick sale that minimized carrying costs, including eliminating the specter of a vacant unit. Bob Adolfson knows what he's doing, that's for sure!"



"As non-American we really needed support and assistance with finding our way around the "maze" of renting an apartment. Bob was not only very professional, but went way beyond to provide us with all the needed information and assistance. We are very thankful, and we highly recommend him."



"Robert Adolfson did a marvelous job explaining what is going to take place what we needed to do and walking us thru the process. He was very knowledgeable and compassionate about the whole process and our feelings. We would recommend him to our friends and family. Thanks for being so caring and making the process so easy."



"Bob Adolfson is one of the best people to work with in real estate. I'm a total newbie when it comes to investment properties (read: skittish and skeptical). His knowledge of Lincoln Park properties was essential to whittling down the prospects to what would fit the bill. By that same token, his dual expertise as a mortgage originator could not have been more valuable to me in sorting out my various options and what would work best for me financially, short- and long- term. His network of referrals for real estate attorneys, inspectors, mortgage companies that could get the financing done and done well/quickly, etc. was exceptional. He's assembled a really impressive team that provides a full-service experience from finding the property to sorting out financials to negotiating terms to closing. You really can't do better in the city, especially Lincoln Park. I'll be utilizing Bob again for my next property acquisition. A+++"



"Bob was awesome! He was so easy to work with, and always makes himself available to help you. His years of experience and vast knowledge of the industry really show. He offered many great opinions on things, and will not put pressure on you to make a quick decision. Bob will not stop working until you are 100% satisfied. The house-buying process was so smooth thanks to Bob and all of his resources. I highly recommend Bob Adolfson!"



"They stayed on top of everything and were very professional. The process felt easy and seamless. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home!"



"Another A+ transaction with Bob! I have bought and sold many properties over my lifetime and I wish I had met Bob earlier so that I didn't go through the growing pains of those earlier transactions without him. He has represented me in my last four transactions and they were all so much better than any other experience I've had in the past. He is top-notch: attentive, patient (especially when things get tense), knowledgeable of both the real estate market and financing/mortgages, etc. After working with Bob, I will never look for another agent. He's my guy!"



"The condo I inherited was a nightmare. I was so lucky to land Bob Adolfson as my broker! He handled everything from arranging repairs to get the place sale-worthy, to making smart, intuitive decisions during the closing when I was briefly ill. Best of all, he reeled in a cash offer the day after my listing appeared, (the first of several)! Wow, In just four days, I said yes to a buyer who paid well above asking, and way more than I expected! You could do worse than picking Bob Adolfson as your broker; but you won't do better!""

"Great guys to work with on a journey to finding the perfect home. As well as helpful in every aspect throughout the closing process."



"Thanks for all of your help and patience through this whole ordeal. I was listening to Dave Ramsey on the way home last night and he was talking about how financial advisors or anyone in a similar position should have the heart of a teacher to help explain all these things that we don't really know or deal with that often. I thought of you with that and encourage you to continue that way because it does help your clients, especially me. I know we are friends, but I can see you having the same patience with all of your clients. I never felt rushed or like I was putting you out by asking more questions and making another inquiry. This especially goes for my nervous feelings in the 11th hour. I know that if we backed out that would not have looked good on you, but most importantly I appreciated that you understood we had to do what was best for us. I hope you and Blaire have a great Holiday Season and just wanted to drop a note and again say thanks for all the time and effort you put in to help make this happen."



"Bob was great, very pleasant to work with. Knowledgeable about the market (he convinced us to sell for more than we ever thought we could and we were successful) , and flexible around our schedules. He provided helpful information when making decisions and physically helped coordinate things once we moved out of town. Great agent."



"I could not be more pleased with my experience with Bob. He went above and beyond to find me and my girlfriend, who was relocating to Chicago, exactly what we were looking for. On top of providing a service, he spent and continues to spend time building a relationship with us. I have no doubt we'll use Bob for future real estate transactions and would absolutely recommend him to anyone."

Bob goes above and beyond his duties, he will help answer any questions from the beginning of the process all the way through to the end at closing! The commission is the last thing on his mind as he makes sure you and your family are comfortable with your new home! I am highly recommending Bob to everyone I know!"

"Bob explained the process during the listing presentation (and throughout). The ultimate sale of my home was exactly as Bob had described and strategized for. I understand that an agent isn't a fortune teller but Bob's knowledge and intuitions about the market response to the home and pricing was spot-on and almost spookily accurate. He really knows the market and how to best prep and present a property for the best sale scenario possible. Between listing the home and accepting a great offer was less than 30 hours and before the first scheduled open house! I recommend Bob to everyone."
