Clients are saying:

"Zak did an amazing job in helping us sell our Wicker Park condo. He was very professional and responsive. From the initial marketing, listing all the way to the closing he was very informative and detail oriented.

Zak was very genuine and he always looked for what was in our best interest. It was great peace of mind knowing that Zak would help out wherever he was needed given that we had already moved out of the state.

Selling a home can be stressful but Zak's knowledge and advice made it for a smooth process. I would highly recommend Zak for you next home purchase or sale."
