"Sam is very knowledgeable and patient with first time sellers. He knows the market and especially the requirements of home buyers. Buyer was looking for a home"



"Sam walked me through the process step by step to get the owner-occupied property I was looking for. I couldn't imagine someone more helpful or knowledgeable in the field of Chicago rental real estate. You can trust Sam to look out for you and your goals even post-closing. He goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure a successful purchase. Great job Sam, you're an inspiration!"



"Sam was great to work with. Very knowledgable of the neighborhood. Helped us negotiate the price to what I felt was the fair market value. Would definitely recommend working with Sam!"



"Sam was great to work with - he was knowledgable in a number of neighborhoods we were looking in and took the time to sit down and listen to our wishlist. Within 2 days, we were out looking at places that matched our criteria and found the perfect place. Sam walked us through everything we needed to make an offer, put us in contact with people he trusted, and was there every step of the way through closing. Definitely recommend working with Sam - he is honest, straightforward, and knows Chicago."



"We have worked with Sam twice now (Buying and selling) and both experiences were great. Sam has a great knowledge of every aspect of selling and buying.

Sam is very responsive and when something unexpected came up that stressed us out, Sam was a great resource to calm our nerves and work through the issues."



"Sam is the absolute best. He's patient, he's diligent, detail oriented, etc. He makes the process for first time home buyers like me incredibly easy (and I never felt like my questions were dumb). He knows the neighborhood, he knows if the asking price is fair, and he fights for his buyers if it isn't.
As a bonus, I've been in my home for over a year, and Sam's customer service continues to be exemplary. I've emailed him for recommendations for various repair services, tax lawyers, etc (again-first time home buyer) and Sam is guaranteed to respond super fast with a great connection. I will never work with another agent."



"Sam was phenomenal. Super attentive and patient. Did not push us to make a quick decision which would have been in his best interest. Actually, he did the opposite and walked us back from overpaying on a home. He encouraged us to be patient and we got everything we wanted in the end."



"Sam is a true professional that took my requirements and turned them into a plan to maximize the sale of my home in the shortest period of time possible. Sam is always available (even on weekends/holidays) to discuss or answer a question I had, and he laid out the process perfectly so I was never left wondering what was next.

If maximizing your selling price, selling quickly, and not worrying about the home-sale process is what you're looking for, then I recommend going with Sam Marconi."



"Sam was our agent when purchasing a home in Spring 2018. My girlfriend and I had a tough time focusing on what was important for the apartment (2 bed vs 1, kitchen size, location to transportation etc) and Sam helped us focus on what we wanted vs. what we needed. He was also particularly helpful in the home inspection phase. There were a number of items I would have skipped over that Sam brought to our attention. Overall very helpful in our first home buying process and we would recommend to other first time buyers as well."



"Sam was very knowledgable and thorough in the listing process when selling my parents' home. He answered questions and concerns in a timely matter. He did his homework in terms of comparative value and worth of the home. He offered useful doable suggestions to engage buyers. Through his listing, we were able to attract a wide range of buyers and considered several offers. The house was sold in a reasonable amount of time for a comparable price."



"Sam helped me find and buy my condo. Sam did a great job of finding properties that were a great fit for me. When the time came to make an offer and close Sam made everything very easy for me. Sam knows the Chicagoland area very well. Highly recommended!"



"Sam made the sale and purchase of my condo as easy a process as possible. Sam was knowledgeable, attentive, and brought insight that was incredibly helpful. His expertise is invaluable and I will definitely use Sam again in the future."



"His patience and understanding is what made our experience with Sam wonderful. He knew what we were looking for and what we needed, and he delivered. His negotiation skills got us a house at the price we wanted. I have and will continue recommending Mr. Marconi to my family and friends."



"Sam is extremely diligent and responsive. Knew the submarket and comps very well. Down to earth and easy to work with. Have given his name to close family and friends and would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home or investment property."



"Amazing service and will be referring everyone I know his way. He made an already exciting process that much better. Very professional and personable."



"Sam was great. He was punctual, provided feedback and input, and was easy to work with. With so many parties participating in a real estate transaction, his communication skill really came in handy."



"great real estate agent. very easy to work with and gives very good advise as far as valuations and market trends. advised us on what properties to purchase."



"My fiancé and I just purchased our first home together and worked with Sam. He made what can be a very overwhelming experience completely enjoyable. He was so patient with us and made sure that we asked all of the right questions, and understood every last detail of the overall process, negotiation, and contract. He wouldn't stop until we found our perfect home. His professionalism, knowledge, attention to detail are some of the many reasons we will be recommending him to all of our friends and family."



"We're first time home buyers and I never felt more like a pro than when I worked with Sam. He's good at asking the right questions, challenging your wants, and helping push the process forward when you commit! I highly recommend him for anyone but most of all, we'll be partnering with him again when we go to sell!"



"Sam was highly recommended by a friend, and he certainly lived up to expectation! He was instrumental in guiding me through the home-buying process as a first time home-buyer, and ultimately helping me close on a great deal which had multiple offers. Sam was easily accessible, easy to work with and knowledgeable of the market/home-buying process. I particularly appreciated his willingness to provide honest opinions and critiques of the value of the homes we looked at, as well as provide insight from his experience with his own investment properties. After my closing, he continued to provide me with resources to smoothly transition into my new home. I would certainly work with Sam again on any future transactions!"



"Sam represented me on my first home purchase in 2013. I was truly a novice, so Sam's expertise was much needed. Sam was recommended to me as an expert in multi-family property purchases, and he lived up to the expectation. I did not have any knowledge on investment properties, and didn't even know what Chicago neighborhoods to look in. Sam did an assessment of various neighborhoods and identified 3-4 "hot" areas that would be able to cash flow as well have appreciation upside.

Sam toured many properties and I even paid him to be the general contractor on post close construction. 4 years later, Sam is still on my speed dial if I have tenant questions regarding leases, rental rates, maintenance. He did such a great job on the purchase, and I will only use him for finding new tenants that are credit worthy and not a headache. Truly a full service real estate professional.

The proof is in the results. Four years later, the property has appreciated 40% and we enjoy 10%+ cash flow yields.

Sam is a differentiated professional that comes with my highest recommendation for purchasing, selling, renting, tenants, etc"



"Sam is truly a "value added" real estate broker. Sam represented me on a purchase of a foreclosed 3-flat investment property in West Town, which needed plenty of work. I probably visited 10 properties with Sam before settling on this one and I could not have done it without him. For each property, Sam did an initial assessment and capital estimate of any construction required (windows, HVAC, electrical, plumbing, carpentry, bathrooms, kitchens cabinets and appliances, etc). He also estimates the rental income and put together a returns model for me. I know of no other broker who does this level of work/analysis for a client. But Sam has a ton of experience with a rolodex of contractors to help you assess not only the initial purchase, but any incremental work. He knows the market extremely well.

Post close, Sam goes beyond the job description and graciously is always available and willing to help get work with contractors lined up. He has introduced me to several contractors that I have used for work which is so valuable to me since I know nothing about the construction market.

I am not exaggerating when I say that Sam is invaluable to my real estate investment properties and he comes with my highest recommendation."



"As a first time home buyer, I was pretty nervous going into this process. Sam made me feel comfortable and informed throughout the whole experience. From our initial sit down, where we discussed what to expect step by step during our search, to the closing day, Sam had my trust and confidence. He has a vast knowledge of the Chicago area which was helpful as I was not sure which area of the city I wanted to purchase in. He was able to provide me with information on different neighborhoods based on his personal and professional experiences. He offered recommendations when it came to picking an inspector, lender, and attorney; all of whom were as equally helpful and knowledgeable. He was always reachable either by phone or email; I was never left with any unanswered questions. Overall, having Sam as my agent helped make this a smooth and enjoyable process and I would highly recommend him to others."



"Sam has helped me find a couple of great properties over the years. Being a numbers guy, I always appreciated how he presented all the facts and stats on the buildings we looked at. He's great at painting a picture of how the process would go, and as a landlord himself, he has amazing insight into buildings with multiple units. I'll definitely be working with him on the next property I buy in a couple of years."



"My experience with Sam Marconi was nothing short of wonderful. He is very responsive and was able to negotiate a great purchase price and secure a fast closing date for me. He great knowledge of the city and what the different neighborhoods have to offer. He also has relationships with a high quality and affordable attorney, home inspector, and lender. Overall, I could not be happier with the purchase of my condo and highly recommend Sam."

"Sam helped us to sell our first apartment in Chicago. He came to our first meeting enthusiastic, well prepared, and proposed an efficient sale process. From start to finish, he handled every detail with total engagement, care, and professional expertise. Sam suggested a selling price, but wanted to make sure we would be comfortable with that result if it was our highest offer.
We could not have asked for a better real estate professional!"



"Sam was such a pleasure to work with and ultimately was able to find us our dream home! He was incredibly knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate and the home buying process so I knew we were in good hands. He was very patient as we were particular in what we were looking for and very attentive to our checklist of needs and wants. We feel we ended up with a great value for our property and so happy we chose to work with Sam to assist in making this decision."

"Sam did a great job handling the rental. Not only getting new tenants, but also in making sure the prior tenants got out of the unit in time."



"This is an email I actually sent to a friend of mine last week looking to buy a rental property.I used Sam Marconi, same person Alex has used. He was outstanding. I wouldnt have been able to do this without him. He knew Albany Park really well, and has a lot of experience with 3 flat type buildings up there. So I relied heavily on him and basically went with his judgment on what kind of returns I could get.He was great through the whole process. We actively started looking at places in Feb/March. We looked at probably 5-7 places over a few weeks/months. Made a few offers which he was very helpful with. And the one I ended up getting was one we put an offer on, the bank took another offer, then came back to us about a month later and took my offer."
