I know that I got a great place for a very good price. I am new to Chicago and this was my first home purchase. Steve is extremely knowledgeable about the market and made sure that I educated myself as well. Im the kind of person that needs to see data that supports the decisions that I make. Steve is excellent at market analysis and his understanding of the market positions him well to give his clients solid guidance. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone I know. I will personally use Steve as my real estate agent for any future sales or purchases. Thanks Steve!"
"We did the very right thing to ask Steve to be our agent, because the selling process turned out to be quite complicated due to the change of policies of special assessments from our townhouse association. Steve was understanding, approachable and very helpful throughout the whole process. He was patient about our request, and handled our issues in timely manners. He even offered a reduction of the commission fees for the special assessments we paid. We really appreciate his help and highly recommend him."
