Overall 5 star rating out of 60 reviews


"I would give Alan 6 stars, if that were possible. From start to finish, his work on selling my mother's home in Glencoe was outstanding. First, he was very impressive in his knowledge of the market when meeting with my mother to discuss listing her home. Once we gave him the go-ahead, he had our buyer within three days, BEFORE we even got the home on the MLS. He was there every step of the way representing my mom, including the relatively complex negotiations that were needed to get to a final contract. He was present each and every time the buyers toured the home to make sure that their questions were answered. He communicated with their realtor, the various closing attorneys and managed all the issues that arose in between contract and closing. The closing went smoothly and without a hitch. My mother needed quite a bit of TLC and Alan was there whenever needed. He kept the rest of us informed for any issues that arose and tasks that needed to be done. He was a clear advocate for my mother and perfectly represented her through the entire selling process. Not only would I strongly recommend him for anyone needing a realtor on the north shore, but I would never look elsewhere were we to need realtor services in the future. He is an honest, hardworking and diligent man."



"Alan is the definition of professional. He went above and beyond our expectations to help us find a house to buy. There was never any pressure from him. When showing houses, he always stayed within our budget and desired location and he helped us focus on what was really important to us. Before we put an offer on a house, he spent a great deal of time walking us through the house and giving his expert opinion on everything often pointing out things we hadn’t even noticed. He always had our best interest in mind and we would never work with anyone else for any future moves."


"Alan embodies the spirit of @properties..."expert, caring and candid advice" throughout the process. His vast experience and calm demeanor are a perfect match for navigating clients through the tough emotional and stressful roller coaster buying and selling often evokes. He maintains focus on his client's goal(s) throughout the process by providing balanced, candid feedback to ensure you are fully aware of the impacts and/or next best alternatives from the many decisions you will make throughout the process."



"I have had the pleasure of working with Alan on several property sales/purchases. He is impeccably professional and always has his clients best interest at heart. I've referred him to several friends and they have had terrific experiences."



"Alan was helpful, knowledgeable and understanding with our situation. I had so many questions and he timely and patiently answered them all. I will recommend Alan to anyone who is new to the Chicago area!"


"Alan was super patient with us as we spent several months whittling down our list of possible areas. Once we had them down to two, he did a great job of matching us with possible homes, providing valuable insight as to why certain homes might be more desirable or pointing out flaws or hidden issues with other ones. Ultimately, we settled on a great house where we can see ourselves raising our kids, and he did a great job of negotiating/mediating with the sellers' agent to make sure the deal happened."


"Alan was a pleasure to work with, and we appreciated his wealth of knowledge about real estate, home ownership, and even construction. He has wonderful vision of the potential of a home but understands the constraints of a budget. He communicates very well, and we never had a problem getting in touch with him. We would recommend Alan to any of our family and friends!"


"Alan is a great real estate agent. We have moved a few times due to work, and he has been the best agent that we have ever worked with. He is very knowledgeable of local real estate and always went the extra mile to facilitate the home buying process for us. He always acted on our behalf and protected our interests. I would highly recommend Alan and would use him again in the future."


"Alan was a pleasure to deal with. He made the whole purchasing experience stress free and seamless. We would definitely use him again. He was able to negotiate a price lower than expected and followed through on everything to ensure the closing went smoothly. He succeeded and considering we had a quick close (9 days), it was outstanding."



"I have purchased a house in the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago (to live in) and two condos in the West Loop neighborhood of Chicago (as investment properties) with Alan. He's great to work with - no pressure, gives you good and direct advice, and sometimes helps you despite yourself (he saved me $5,000 on our house by encouraging me to negotiate the price rather than just jump to full asking price during the final round of our negotiation). He is very well established at @Properties, which is the largest brokerage in Chicago, which has helped many times as I looked for properties. He often knows the seller's brokers, and he's always willing to use his connections to try to get information for you or to smooth the process. Really nice personality - never pushy, lets you see a place and absorb it without constant talking, and knows the market well. Alan does a lot of his work in the suburbs as well, so he's not a "city broker" in the sense of knowing every building in the city backwards and forwards. However, he is a real estate investor himself so really understands how to value a property, pros and cons of various properties and how to help you think through your priorities when deciding whether to bid."



"We have been very pleased with Alan's service. He is extremely knowledgable with respect to the entire North Shore area of Chicago. He has been very thorough and patient with us. His responses to our requests and questions have always been prompt even months after the closure of the house. We would recommend him without hesitation, which we already did with all our local friends and colleagues."



"Alan was excellent to work with, he has wonderful communication and negotiation skills, and is incredibly knowledgeable. He provided all the information we needed and made us feel very comfortable."



"Alan helped us both sell our home and buy a new one. He was patient, helpful and extremely responsive to all of our needs. We would highly recommend him to anyone in the Chicago area."



"Alan showed us at least a dozen properties over several months until we finally found the one which was just right. We made three or more offers on other properties which did not work out but Alan never became frustrated with us, persevered, and counseled us every step of the way until we were happy in our new place. He found our first property for us 7 years ago when we first moved to the city and was able to guide us through a market place very different from what we were used to. His advice and counsel on the sale of our first property was flawless."



"Alan was great. He was patient, and always looked out for our needs and best interests. He knew what we were looking for, and took the time to find it."



"Alan is great! He gave us candid and insightful advice. His breadth of expertise was a real asset in helping us get our wonderful home.

He listened to our needs and helped us identify homes that met all our criteria. We found a home we liked. He got us a showing very quickly. And, once we'd decided we were ready to make an offer, he gave us thoughtful advice and moved with all due speed to get us into the home.

We love our home, and we owe it all to Alan!"



"Alan made the house hunting process as painless as possible he quickly identified what we were looking for and showed us properties that met our needs."



"Alan helped me and my family sell my mom's condo in Northbrook. He was a great and honest partner throughout the process.

He provides great results and a solid experience."



"Alan masterfully negotiated the purchase of our home and in the end we paid significantly less than we thought we would have to. We are absolutely in love with our new home. He provided great insight regarding the buying process and helped us avoid any pitfalls. I highly recommend him!"



"Alan is the finest real estate professional in the business. We have worked on multiple transactions over the years and he has always come thru for us. Definitely cares about his clients needs and his decisions and recommendations are always well thought out and on point."



"Alan was one of the best brokers we’ve ever worked with. He was on top of every detail during our recent home purchase. Due to his vast experience in the industry, he was able to guide us perfectly through the process. Alan is extremely responsive and worked with us as a true partner during the sometimes tedious process of buying and selling real estate. He is a go-getter, however provides a calming presence during this emotional process. He was very good at understanding our needs as a buyer and therefore showing us the best home to meet those needs. He was also very good at pointing out the pros and cons of each home we viewed. We highly recommend Alan and will absolutely work with him in the future."



"Alan was an amazing patient agent. He took the time to understand our needs and explained everything in detail. Anyone that is looking for a new home I highly reccomend Alan as he will make this an easy process"



"Alan was very attentive throughout the house finding and purchase process."



"Alan is both professional and very responsive. He has been a pleasure to work with in both purchasing a home as well as facilitating the rental of a home on behalf of the landlord."



"Alan was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire home purchase process. He was very knowledgable and easy to communicate with. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the North Shore area."



"Superior expertise and always accessible. Alan was incredibly active throughout the transaction and provided excellent advice in searching for homes and negotiating with sellers."



"Communication was great throughout the process. This was critical to me since I had already moved my family out of state and had virtually no ability to be on site as a few inspection related repairs were undertaken. Alan was always available to let the contractors gain access to the property even on short notice. Also Alan was able to work with the buyer's broker to negotiate a variety of the contract terms promptly and effectively."



"Alan brings strong local knowledge, professionalism and a partnership to finding your new home. We were new to the area, moving from the West coast, with a fairly aggressive time frame. Alan took extra time and effort to take us on multiple tours of the North Shore area and provide us with his insights and local knowledge. He took the time to understand what we were looking for and then targeted houses that would appeal to us. It was clear he was driven by finding the right home for us, rather than just completing the sale.

When we found our current home, Alan was exemplary in the offer negotiation phase. His calmness and negotiation skills were superb. There was never any pressure on us through the entire process. Even after the offer, through and post inspection, Alan was there with us, helping to push forward appropriate fixes that needed to be done before closing.

The entire process was done very efficiently and was a pleasant experience for us. In summary, I would strongly recommend Alan to any of my friends/family who want to buy/sell a home in the North Shore area."



"Alan was very attentive throughout the house finding and purchase process."



"Alan was a fantastic agent and guide through our home buying process. He was always on top of identifying any potential issues in the houses we visited. He was always able to answer our numerous questions but often answered them before we even asked. He made sure to point out the highlights of the various suburbs we toured.

Like many people, we had our struggles in the Contract Phase but Alan made it a breeze. He let us know each step of the way what we needed to do and referred us to true professionals for the other aspects of the transaction. When issue arose...and they always do...Alan was never short of creative solutions to help us get the deal done.

We will use Alan for any of our future real estate needs and highly recommend you do the same!"

We cannot recommend Alan enough for any and all residential real estate transaction."

He did a great job identifying properties that fit our interests and was very organized and efficient so we could use our limited time to best advantage to quickly identify the perfect home.

"We have bought and sold houses with Alan's help as have at least two of my colleagues. Everyone I have spoken to shares our satisfaction with Alan's perseverance and professionalism."


"Ours was a somewhat unique property, and Alan priced it really well, and marketed it perfectly. In our broker selection process, we had been most impressed with the internal communications tool that @Properties uses, thinking it might help us to generate interest in our home. Sure enough, even before the house went on the market, thanks to this innovative internal technology, there was an interested buyer as soon as the link was ready. We had an offer on our home above asking price a day before the listing went live, and ultimately that was the offer we needed. We could not have been happier with our broker or with @Properties."



"Alan was a fantastic realator. He went above and beyond my expectations. I would absolutely recommend him to anybody."



"Alan helped us find our dream home in record time. We went into theprocess with a long wish list, assuming we'd only find maybe half theitems on the list. In less than two weeks, Alan took us to a homethat covered every single item on our wish list and that was in thelower to middle part of our price range! During our contractnegotiation, Alan used his experience in negotiating real estatetransactions to get us a lower price than we would have been inclinedto negotiate for. Alan expertly guided us through the closing processand handled the many parties involved (the seller's realtor, mortgagebroker, title company, home insurance company and both sides'attorneys) with courtesy and a "let's work together to get it done"approach. Alan was great at staying in touch and supporting ushowever he could during the process, including collecting informationrequested by our mortgage company and home insurance company, callingto remind us of critical dates and promptly informing us of allcommunications with the sellers' realtor and attorney. We had a fewcomplications in our transaction, including a change in closing dateand an item that required special insurance, and Alan helped us handleall of the changes smoothly. As a first-time homebuyer, I can'timagine things having gone any better!"



"Alan was great to work with and help us get into our first home! He always responded in a timely manner that constantly amazed us. He has excellent listening skills and took time to understand what we wanted which resulted in him finding us our dream home in a very short time. He also excelled at communication and explaining to us the home buying process as it was new to us. He worked with our challenging schedule and provided one of the highest customer service levels we have ever experienced. Alan arranged for an inspector and attorney which provided great services and excellent value. Our experiences with Alan were beyond great and exceptional and we would recommend him to our family, friends, and co-workers, as we have already. While we do not plan on moving again anytime soon we hope that when we are ready we can work again with Alan. We are thankful for working! Alan and hope others can have the great experience and opportunity we have."



"Alan is responsive, diligent, and ethical. Having dealt with Alan on several transactions over the past few years, I could not recommend him more highly...he is the ultimate professional."



"I want to offer my heart-felt thanks for your assistance and patience during our successful real estate search. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience which was a direct result of your positive approach and professionalism. Once again, much thanks!!"



"Alan provided us with an exceptional home buying and financing experience -- from beginning to closing. He patiently answered all of my questions and made himself available at all hours of the day to make sure we received the best possible service. I could not be happier with his services."



"Alan made the daunting process of buying and selling a painless and enjoyable experience. Throughout our working relationship, the Meyorwitz team was professional, friendly, focused, and always willing to go the extra mile to help us. Not only are they experts in both Chicago and North Shore real estate, theyre also well-experienced in buying and selling strategies that gave us a big advantage over the competition. Simply put, we couldnt have sold our Wicker Park condo in 3 months or found the perfect Wilmette home without Joni and Alans help!"



"Alan really listened to our needs and wants, complimented with his in-depth personal knowledge of the area and market made a challenging process enjoyable and successful. His flexibility and patience is fantastic. Thanks again!"



"We were very happy with Alan's representation throughout the process. His knowledge of the market, professionalism and energy were far superior to our experiences with realtors in the city we are moving from"


"Alan is simply brilliant. The are no alternatives to using him."



"If you want to buy a house, if you want to sell a house, there is only one man to use: Alan Meyerowitz. Simply the best."



"As first time home buyers Alan truly put our fears to rest with his expert knowledge of the entire home buying process, his calm persona and his prompt communication with us (email, phone, in person) at all hours of the day. From the initial check list of what we were looking for in our home to the day of the signing (and beyond), Alan was guiding us every step of the way. In addition, the professionals he recommended to us within his network (attorneys, inspectors, lenders, etc.) all followed through with great success. Above all of that, during a period of extreme distress on our final walk-through (an hour before closing), Alan helped us safely secure our dream home while thinking quickly on his feet and ensuring we were protected. We had some flooding in our brand new basement due to a historic rain fall during the days before our closing and Alan came up with a number of viable solutions, all of which protected us from any additional financial burdens. In conjunction with our attorney (which Alan recommended) we were able to close that day with a very fair agreement between us (the buyer) and the seller. Amazing! Alan was the perfect person to help us start a new chapter in our lives. On a side note, he has a great sense of humor which truly made the entire process that much more enjoyable!"



"Alan did a fantastic job for us. He consistently kept us apprised of what was happening with the sale of our home, and was responsive and reliable to our requests. This was especially important to us because we live out of town and need someone 'on the ground'.Alan offered suggestions on how to improve the saleability of our home and helped ensure the home was always presentable to potential buyers. He even found an excellent attorney for us to use. I wish all real estate agents were as good as Alan."



"Alan is absolutely the best. Knowledgeable, Hard Working, Focused, and Delivers!"



"Alan Meyerowitz patiently and professionally led us through our Chicago search which began with our consideration of an apartment lease and led to our purchase of a condominium. He previewed properties for us when it was not possible for us to be there, and always provided straight-forward insights and issues to consider. His knowledge of the city is terrific and we were able to compare lots of options. We really could not have done this without Alan, and can't think of any real estate professional we could more highly recommend.Mo Merhoff and Paul Reis"



"We would not hesitate to contact Alan Meyerowitz, of @Properties, for all our sales/rental needs in the Chicago area. Alan was very professional & knowledgeable with the rental of our apartment in Logan Square and was always accessible when I had questions. He also went over and above his duties when our new tenant got locked out of the apartment; Alan took care of everything with the locksmith for us. When you live a few states away from your rental property, it is good to have someone like Alan Meyerowitz on the job. Thank you Alan!Lily & Dave HorstPalmyra, PA"



"Alan's expertise and local knowledge was a great resource during out relocation to Highland Park. When we faced unexpected challenges in the process Alan was there every step of the way to help us get to closing. I would recommend him to friends, family and I wouldn't consider using anyone else."
