"Mark went above and beyond in helping us sell our condo. Our association had issues that had prevented most of the original owners in the building to sell. Mark found a workaround that resulted in us finding a buyer. And even when there were complications with the closing, Mark stuck with it and worked tirelessly to help get the deal done. We are very grateful for his efforts, and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell property."

"Mark made selling my home as easy as it could be. Not only because of his knowledge of the market but also his great attention to details both big and small. I would definitely recommend Mark to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

"Working with Mark was a great experience. He was very knowledgeable about everything and knew from our first meeting exactly what I was looking for. He was informative during the whole process and was always available for questions and gave me great recommendations for services even after the purchase."

"Our experience with Mark Jak was outstanding. From the outset he was professional, brought expert insights to our transaction and set us up for success. The others on his team...photographer, videographer, and assistant all brought the same level of expertise and top notch customer service."

"Mark always goes above and beyond, thank you!"

"We have used Mark Jak four time now for different transactions. There is no one I trust more. He is conscientious, calm and very knowledgeable about every part of the transaction."

"I discovered Mark through Yelp and I am so grateful I did. He sold my townhouse in Lakeview and was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process. Not only is Mark incredibly professional, but he is also extremely knowledgeable. From the start he impressed me. During our initial meeting he was highly prepared and had done a great deal of research to help determine the proper list price of my home. Prior to listing my property, Mark provided expert staging tips for each room which I was so grateful for, as his guidance really helped my townhouse stand out from the competition. Mark was highly organized, respectful and positive throughout the entire process which included some hurdles along the way. Always very responsive, Mark also provided excellent advice and always looked out for my best interests. Mark truly went above and beyond from our initial meeting to the day of closing by even helping to take care of a few key details for me prior to the closing because I had already moved and could not be at the property. I am in the process of purchasing a new home in a different city and the realtors with whom I have interacted pale in comparison to Mark. I wish Mark could be my realtor on this next purchase but unfortunately it is 1000 miles away from Chicago! I highly recommend Mark Jak as he is a true professional with tremendous insight who will always have your best interests in mind"

"No situation is too complicated for Mark. I have used him three times so far and wouldn't work with anyone else. Superior negotiating skills and always calm no matter what craziness is going on!"

"Exceptional job from start to finish, we could not be more pleased!"

"Thank you Mark for you great advice and help."

"Mark is a very professional and knowledgeable broker. He has a keen understanding of the market and helped to make an otherwise stressful situation so much easier to get through. We highly recommend Mark as your go-to broker for all of your real estate needs. Thanks!"

"Mark worked with us to buy our first home and as our family grew, he helped us sell that house and find a new one with a little more space. His expertise and professionalism made an often stressful process so much smoother. He was patient in listening to what we wanted, but provided valuable guidance that was essential in our decision making. We highly recommend Mark to anyone buying or selling."

"Mark is well organized and highly professional. He is a good listener and worked to understand my needs, which focused our search. His knowledge of the city and real estate is exceptional and in the end found me the right home at the right price."

"I was a first-time buyer and Mark was very helpful and patient. He showed me properties in a variety of neighborhoods and helped me clarify what was important to me. I felt guided by an expert."

"We wanted to buy a place in Chicago; we wanted to find it in 3 days, since we lived out of town. We did many long-distance searches with Mark before we got to Chicago. We found Mark sensitive to our needs, his patience only exceeded by his expertise."

"I'm sitting here in my beautiful new condo and only have Mark to thank for being so helpful. My husband and I were working with a tight timeline and we had some bad luck along the way but Mark made the process go as smoothly as possible. He was responsive and informative and is easy to work with. I appreciate that he would give us space to make up our own mind about a place while providing objective information about it to help us decide. I never felt pushed into anything and I felt like he had our best interests in mind when providing his own feedback. We had some specific (maybe a little picky) criteria for our home and I felt like he paid attention to that and didn't show us anything that would have been a bad fit. The process ended up taking longer than expected but Mark found us our perfect home in the end and we love it! I would definitely recommend working with Mark."

"My husband and I are now first time home owners thanks to this man!!! We didn't know where to begin or who to talk to, we were completely new to the entire process, all we knew is we wanted a home. Good friends of ours highly recommended Mark Jak with Baird & Warner, they bought with him 2 years ago and had nothing but kind words to say about him. We met with Mark 3 months before even wanting to begin our house hunt and he took the time to explain everything thoroughly and he patiently waited for us to let him know when we were ready to start making moves. Mark was never pushy, always patient, nothing was ever a stupid question (because I had many!) Even through the MANY inches of snow, the NEGATIVE temps and INSANE wind chills Chicago had this past winter, Mark was ALWAYS available to show us houses and he was super easy to schedule with. He was always punctual (even throughout ALL the snow), he always replied to emails/calls/texts in a timely fashion and he really does give some great real estate advice. Thanks to Mark we now have a beautiful home to call our own!"

"Mark Jak won our business in a competitive process arranged by our relocation company, in which we interviewed multiple potential realtors. We were unanimous in selecting Mark to represent us as sellers, and now that our transaction has closed, we know we made the right choice. The reasons we chose Mark were the same reasons we were so satisfied with his representation: he provides reliable, candid, straightforward and evidence-based advice. He is also proactive and very responsive. He was in touch with us just the right amount so that we knew our property was important to him. He also did extensive homework before our initial meeting, which diligence impressed us immensely. He also came with market specific location specific ideas on how to market the property. He was a breeze to work with, and at the end of the day, delivered results. We wholeheartedly recommend Mark."

"This was the first time selling my house and Mark Jak was absolutely wonderful! He took the time to answer all of my questions, was always prompt in returning my calls and emails and made excellent recommendations that would increase interest in my condo. After putting it on the market we accepted an offer after 2 weeks!! I could not have done it without Mark nor would I ever consider working with another agent. He's the best!"
