"Steve was extremely helpful! He made our house hunting and buying process go extremely smooth. Steve is very knowledgeable about the areas we were searching and provided great insight on the various houses we looked at. We appreciated his honesty and eye for pointing out areas for concern or positives in houses. When our friends started their house hunting process we recommended Steve without any hesitation."


"When it came time to sell my first house, I was very hesitant about using someone that I knew. Growing up in the area and being involved in many different local businesses over the years, my network had grown to a fairly substantial size, and many were in the Real Estate business. I could see the vultures circling already as I mentioned that I was looking to move, and people that I hadn’t heard from in years were suddenly interested in me (or should I say my inevitable closing commission). Mind you I had worked in the insurance world and with my Dad as a local independent agent, I was very familiar with the local market and its “big players”. In fact, my Father insured a few and his office was located inside a shared office space that was owned and occupied by one.
But like I said, none of these agents had ever sparked my interest as being someone that ran their business differently than the lovable character Gil from the Simpsons, just chomping at the bit for that next sale and using every sales technique under the sun to close business. Being a Salesperson myself, I could spot these cliche types from a mile away with their Zig Ziggler canned lines and standard uniforms a la blazers and golf shirts. But my friend Steve had spent the last 3 years tickling my radar with his business. For once someone had cut through the bullsh!+ and laid it on the table in a way my financially licensed mind could understand: my house was my largest asset, and walking away with anything less than the max my unique property and the local market would bear was not an option.
And with my knowledge that was just enough to make me dangerous but would end up being dangerous if left unchecked, I knew Steve would be the business partner that I could trust. And that’s how I approached the transaction from the beginning: I was bringing a business partner to my most inner of sanctums, and trusting him to be both honest but the voice of reason as well.
From the beginning, Steve set proper expectations for both the price, timeframe and weekly strategies we would need to secure the sale of my home. From listening to my gripping when people would leave lights on or show up an hour early for scheduled appointments, Steve was always there to listen, let me vent, and in turn, explain our commitment to the plan. Always with a laugh, a smile, and a down to earth reality that kept me true to our commitment.
I not only completed my transaction in the timeframe we had discussed but was able to negotiate well beyond the sale of just the property itself. From his photographers to the legal team, things ran like a well-oiled machine and when they didn’t, Steve was the first to admit his oversights and correct them quickly.
If you haven’t had the chance to read Steve’s book yet or to listen to his podcast, do yourself a favor and do so even if you’re not in the market. You’ll learn so much more about being an entrepreneur in this crazy social media age. And the main takeaway I’ll leave you with is this: by the end not only will you learn a great deal about how true connections still shape business, but you’ll find yourself drawn to continue on this journey with Steve as a business partner and friend."


"Steve was a true professional throughout the entire process of buying our home. As a first time home buyer, navigating the system is incredibly confusing and Steve's guidance made things so much easier. I was impressed with how well he facilitated communication between all involved parties (attorneys, agents, etc.) when needed. He was always available when we needed him and always gave his undivided attention - he never seemed rushed or annoyed (and believe me, we contacted him a lot!). Since we found our dream home, I hope to not need his services again any time soon, but I would recommend him to anyone without question."


"I have been is sales for 25 years and have not seen anyone like
C Steve Weirich for over 15 years with his skills, knowledge, great personality, genuine concern, a real work ethic and enthusiasm! Steve was always there for me any time I needed him! He always conducted himself as a "PROFESSIONAL", always on course to make everything the way you wanted it, which is rare in today's working market! I was so happy that I picked him and anyone else would be too! Today and always I would recommend him to help you with any Real Estate transaction without hesitation and I am proud to call him now a great friend, Steve keep up the great personal work now and forever!"


"This is our true story . . . . . . . . . We started the process of selling our home in the spring of 2016. After six months, we took our home off the market due to an appalling experience with the first realtor we had hired to sell our home.

In the spring of 2017 and with this new knowledge of unscrupulous realtors, we decided to reconsider two realtors that we had previously interviewed. We knew these two individuals through the sale/purchase of families’ homes in the past and had developed a friendly relationship with each of them.

During the fall/winter of 2016 when our home was not on the market, Steve had contacted us to introduce himself and to provide us with valuable information about his real estate philosophy. We decided to interview him due to his reassuring diligence over the months before putting our home back on the market. After meeting with Steve, we decided to take a leap of faith and signed a contract with him to sell our home. Steve’s enthusiasm and honesty over the months of chatting on the telephone won us over. Our hope was that we hadn’t made another mistake by choosing the wrong realtor, especially since we knew how competent the other two realtors were with our family members in the past. As we all know, the circumstances involved in buying and selling real estate can be extremely stressful. Steve was so reassuring and he pleasantly surprised us on many occasions with his opinion on various concerns that we had during the selling process. We felt that he wasn’t out to make a quick sale just to earn his realtor fees because he was incredibly thoughtful with the advice that he gave to us.

Steve is the only realtor that we are aware of who willingly met potential buyers and their agents at first showings which is truly impressed. Steve wanted to tell the “story” of our home which we thought was an exceptional and innovative approach. Quite honestly, we couldn't have asked for a more consummate professional to handle our real estate needs and we are so privileged to have met Steve. We went from the worse possible realtor selection to the very best within a year.

In addition to his professionalism, Steve has been kind, thoughtful, friendly and considerate throughout this entire process. It is our pleasure to recommend him to family and friends when they are ready to buy and/or sell. If you want to save yourself the aggravation in deciding what realtor you can trust, we can make that decision so easy for you by recommending Steve Weirich from @properties.

"Steve has been wonderful to work with. Living out of state when I wanted to sell my Chicago condo I had to find an agent who would handle anything that needed to be done in my absence. Steve definitely took the stress out of selling my condo and brought me an additional $18,000. I would recommend Steve and his book "The Value Driven Approach to Selling Real Estate" to anyone who is thinking of selling their property. Mary Mills"


"My wife and I are first time home buyers and Steve was a true partner in our search. He took time to learn what was important to us while also offering his perspective for us to consider.

We would highly recommend Steve to our close friends and family members."

He knows our area extremely well, so was able to represent and present us well in the market.

We will definitely call Steve whenever we buy or sell any property in the future. I usually am not quite so excited about sales folks, but Steve is a refreshing change to the typical real estate sales guy.

Call him - you will be glad you did!"


"Steve is very dedicated to sell your house and or property. He goes out of his way for a great experience.

"I worked with Craig Weirich on my recent dream home purchase, the process was smooth and hassle free. When my wife and I interviewed Craig, he was prompted and professional. The information Craig provided us was exactly what we were looking for. Craig didn't waste our time showing us the homes that didn't meet the criteria we had set. If you looking for a realtor that wants to work for you and makes you feel in control of the process then Craig is a perfect choice! Thanks again Craig Weirich for helping us find our dream home. Chris Donelson"


"Steve Weirich's knowledge, passion, and work ethic were nothing short of amazing throughout this process. His knowledge of the market, and area are what led to such a quick sell.

I would recommend Steve to anyone and everyone I know looking to sell a property."

"Steve was such a blessing when it came to selling my condo. My condominium had been on the market with another realtor for many months with little response or interest. Thankfully, I found Steve and he was able to finally help me sell, and quickly at that. Steve is an extremely authentic and genuine person, and he helped to make the daunting task of selling my home so much easier. Steve took charge and made it happen. He has an eye for the details and was very proactive in doing all that was needed to get the word out about my condo. Just know that with Steve, you will be in good hands."

"I tried to sell my mothers property last year with another agent with no success. Steve, not only sold the home, he got a great price. His inovative approach, I highly recommend to everyone selling their homes. I am listing my townhouse with him next year."


"My wife and I met Steve about a year ago when we contacted him about a listing he had in Arlington Heights. We instantly hit it off and although we did not purchase that home we stayed in contact and Steve has been our agent ever since. Steve helped us sell our Townhouse in Park Ridge, buy our dream home in Des Plaines and we just closed on our 3rd property with Steve. I would recommend Steve to my family, friends, and anyone looking for an honest, professional, good hearted agent."


"Steve was a wonderful guide while choosing our home. He offered great, always available communication and wonderful advice as well as things to think about that I would not have considered otherwise. We felt that we had a friend and an expert that truly had our best interest in mind along our entire buying process. His passion for finding people the right home comes through in every interaction and we never felt pushed or hurried into anything - he truly wants his customers happy and taken care of! I highly recommend Steve if you want a passionate realtor willing to go the extra mile and really listen to you to get you into he right home!"


"We met Steve at an open house in Arlington Heights after having gone to see our first home in our home search. We left him our information and he called us the next day. After telling him what we were looking for and our budget, we agreed to meet that weekend to see several homes. That same day he showed us a home he was listing, which we immediately put on the possible list. After that day, our choice was between the home we saw with Steve and the first home we saw right before we met him. After some back and forth, we decided to go with the first house we saw and because he didn't take us to see the house, we had to use the seller's agent as our agent as well. During our home tours with Steve, he provided insight about the neighborhood and knowledgeable value of the homes and location we were looking at. Because we appreciated his honesty, knowledge and respect of our budget/needs, we were pretty upset we couldn't use him for the home we decided to go with, but when we called him to tell him we were going with another home, he was gracious and very understanding. Fast forward, our deal fell through with the home we went into contract with and so we IMMEDIATELY called Steve to help us find another home...call it destiny. It was really hard to find a 5 bedroom home within our budget and school district for our 4 children and us. Steve was always patient and honest and you could tell he wanted to make sure we found the right home for our family and not just make a sale. He suggested an area we were not familiar with that was only 8 minutes away from our original area, but had just as highly-rated schools. We loved it. The home is perfect for our family and he worked hard for us to make sure we fell within budget without being rude or offensive to the other side. He is a good person who appreciates and understands that he is not just selling houses but a HOME to families and truly knows the real estate market. He's a good source of knowledge for a home's true value whether it be on the sale or purchase side."


"The first time we met Steve was at a open house that he was hosting. He had some of his books out, and I asked if he would sign it for me. He was happy to. I read the book, and it was very insightful, and how honest he was when it came to selling your house. I asked if he could become our agent, and told him what we were looking for. He did not hesitate, we found a house that we might be interested in. We checked it out, and wanted to make an offer on the house, which we did. Steve being very helpful and insightful gave us great advice along the way. Steve is very direct, and does not tell you what you want to hear. He gives you the facts, provides solutions to the many different challenges in purchasing a home."


"Steve reached out to us after our realtor dropped us after her six month contract was up... he was truly great to work with and we will definitely be using him again."

""This is my first real estate sale in 15 years. It was a great experience and Steve helped me through the changes that have occurred in the last 15 years. His team of interior designers and photographers made his approach a delight to work with. Most of all Steve was helpful and thorough throughout the whole process." Bill Mattson (Chicago Lakeview)"


""I cant say enough good things about Steve. His ethics, professionalism, knowledge of the industry and character are all outstanding.

I can honestly say .....Right Decision. He sold my home for more than I was looking for and faster than I would have thought. It was all a truly great experience. So much less time and effort than normally goes along with selling a home. I will definitely use Steve Weirich again for any real estate transaction, selling , buying, or renting.

Nope, Not the case. Steve is that Good. Call him and find out for yourself. Thanks for the time !! Good Luck." Robert Wankewycz (Arlington Heights)"

""My house had previously been on the market for 6 months with another realtor; when that listing expired, Steve contacted me just to find out if he could help with the sale of my house. Steve came to my house and made a very professional presentation which I politely put on the back burner. They were not insistent and gave me time to get my thoughts together by waiting several months before contacting me again; again, I politely put it on the back burner. Finally, I gave Steve the call he was waiting for. Steve visited and, again, were very professional in their presentation. They listened to my wants and needs and incorporated them into the house sale. He listed my house on a Friday and by Sunday I had 5 offers. Those offers turned into a so called "bidding war" which they managed nicely all the time working on my behalf to maximize the sale proceeds. I can't say enough good things about Steven Weirich and his approach." Maureen Koziol (Arlington Heights)"
