"This is the second time we've used Samantha in the purchase of a property and she's been fantastic all the way through. She certainly knows her stuff and is very flexible with schedules. Thanks so much!"


"Samantha is a true professional who is very much a pleasure to work with and demonstrated her indepth knowledge of the Chicago real estate market and her extensive network as we worked through each stage of the process. Her commitment to our project was exemplary and she demonstrated very strong negotiation skills managing our engagement with outside parties always from a position of strength. In addition to real time responsiveness, Samantha ongoingly kept us informed of critical activity metrics and analytics. As extremely satisfied clients, we look forward to continuing to work with Samantha and @Properties."


"We cannot say enough great things about Samantha. The home-buying process was new and overwhelming for us, and she made it as painless as possible. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, aspects of individual properties, and even some of the additional work we wanted to complete after moving in (floors, plumbing, contract work, etc). She helped connect us with inspectors and legal services as well. She truly went above and beyond for us. Although signing the papers and taking ownership of our first property was exciting, we will miss our daily emails and phone calls with Samantha! We highly, highly recommend her- we could not be happier in our new home."


"Samantha was amazing through the entire process from beginning to end and the close of the sale. I simply could not have asked for a better partner in the process."


"Samantha was extremely helpful from the first day I talked to her all the way through the signing of the lease and beyond. Her communication was effective, efficient and very useful. Not only did we complete the procedure from half way across the country but the other party was out of state as well and she made it seamless and simple for both of us and made sure all bases were covered."



"Samantha is the best, a great experience from beginning to end. I look forward to working with her again in the future."


"Samantha was incredibly easy to work with, listened to our needs, thoroughly prepared, and a tremendous resource. She made the home-buying process (our first), incredibly seamless and easy, and we are extremely happy with the home that she found for us. A true professional, friendly, and very sharp, Samantha was the key-man on our home purchase team. You would be well served to engage Samantha for your home purchase."


"Samantha went above and beyond all of our expectations with her expertise, professionalism and prompt responsiveness to any and all of our needs along the way. We never doubted for one second she had our best interests in mind with everything that came up. Samantha was so efficient we didn't even need to list our condo and was able to get it under contract with one private showing which made our lives so much easier to not have to deal with showings, open houses, etc. I cannot thank her enough for such a great first time selling experience and would absolutely recommend her services to anyone that ever needs a broker."


"We are a ‘residential developer’ building new-construction condominiums and SFH’s on Chicago’s north side. Samantha has always worked with us beyond a broker’s standard mandate to help differentiate our homes from building conception-to-completion including, but not limited to, advising on the design of building facades, floor plans, kitchens and baths, and the selection of finish materials.Samantha also protects our pricing expectations with conviction. We always have confidence that our best interests are being represented in her negotiations. In times we needed to price more aggressively, or be more realistic, she would present a broad-based competitive analysis with a corresponding strategy based on current market conditions, while maintaining her objectivity. Samantha’s ability to draw on her years of experience, understand location dynamics and consumer demands, while representing our company with professionalism and integrity has made her an invaluable part of our development team. It is with pride and gratitude that we write this acknowledgment for Samantha Porter as our real estate broker.Chris DeLeeuw – President, Halcyon Development Group"


"Our experience with Samantha Porter was outstanding! We workedwith Samantha both on the sale of our condo and the purchase of our newhome. Samantha was extremely professional and knowledgeable on bothsides of the real estate process. Specifically, Samantha went above andbeyond what we have witnessed with other agents to get our place sold.She acted as our advisor on all fronts of the sale, and did a wonderfuljob managing our expectations (which we appreciated) as sellers in theworst real estate market in history. In addition, Samantha was verygenerous with her time, her knowledge and herself as we worked towardthe purchase of our new house. She was immensely patient, truly willingand wanting to help us find our "forever" home, while working to achievefor us the best deal possible. Finally, we were very grateful toSamantha for consistently keeping in contact with us either by phone orby e-mail with updates, suggestions or just word of encouragement. Samantha always had our best interests at heart throughout theentire process. Having Samantha represent us was enormously helpfulduring a very stressful time. We would highly recommend her to othersin the Chicago area, as I imagine all clients who work with her do.Mike and Becky J."


"I was referred to Samantha by a mutual friend. I had been searching for a condo in the Chicago area for nearly 6 months and had two contracts fall apart prior to the time I started working with Samantha. Once I started workign with Samantha, things finally started to fall in place. Samantha listened to what I was looking for and provided great recommendations and advice. She was always polite, professional and courteous and in my mind always took the extra step to find out as much information as possible. I really enjoyed working with her and am very pleased with the home I finally was able to close on. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market as well as Chicago's neighborhoods, builders and available units. I would recommend Samantha to anyone that was looking for a new home in Chicago."


"Samantha is very attentive and supportive and I valued her counsel at every turn. She knows my neighborhood and understood my needs so we were always in sync as to next steps and decisions to be made. She's very hands-on and helpful when I found myself at an impass and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. I first met Samantha over ten years ago when I purchased my first condo and have stayed in touch through this latest purchase. She's a valuable partner."


"Samantha is very knowledgable about how to move to a close, dealing with tough issues, and always keeping communication going. She pushes when she needs to but never makes it too much pressure. Everyone I refer to her loves her!"


"I had the pleasure of working with Samantha on both the purchase of my new place and the sale of my former condo. On the purchase side, Samantha showed an extreme amount of patience as we spent a long time looking at places before I bought my new home. In both cases, Samantha also exhibited great knowledge and business savvy along with the ability to balance my desires with the reality of the depressed market. I would not hesitate to recommend Samantha to my friends and family should they be looking for real estate assistance in the city."


"We recently purchased our home in Chicago with Samantha Porter. Our experience has been entirely positive. Samantha was consistently professional while also concerned with the personal aspirations we had for our home. Her advice and guidance have been invaluable to us. Samantha always responded timeously and sought out properies within our budget and property parameters. We are very happy in our new home."



"Samantha made the search for my first home exciting and stress-free. She is patient, knowledgeable, a great negotiator and she went above and beyond by helping me find a mortgage broker and inspector. She gave me great advice and was always straightforward. Samantha was recommended to me and I would definitely recommend her to others- she did an amazing job!"
