It was a pleasure to work with Emmanuel....from the start, he showed he was on point with everything! My husband and I have very restricted schedules, and Emmanuel was able to work his magic and get us into the places we were interested in checking out. He really made the buying experience very easy and quite fun! What I loved the most about Emmanuel was that he made us feel like we were his only clients; he was super attentive and had a very quick response time. His number one priority was to get us into the place we wanted, and not pushing other properties like you'll see some agents do- just thinking of their commission. He wanted the right fit for his client.. not to mention his knowledge of the real estate market was quite impressive. I would totally recommend Emmanuel to family and friends. He is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. Thanks Emmanuel!

We have bought many properties over the years and have never had such a valuable and professional relationship with an agent as we had with Jeff Hopkins. As we live in Sydney Australia we trusted Jeff with finding the best property to suit our needs and he came through brilliantly! He organized video tours, attorneys and inspections on our behalf. His knowledge of the market, his professionalism and his attention to detail, made this the most pleasurable investment experience we have ever had. We would highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking at purchasing or selling Real Estate and we look forward to continuing an ongoing professional relationship with Jeff.

We would like to thank you for your outstanding personal and professional touch and support. We had the privilege to enjoying throughout our journey looking for and closing on our new house in Lincolnshire. There are no words to describe your patience, around the clock availability and support as well as your professional and personal guidance during these last couple of months. We feel very lucky to have you on our side throughout this entire process and are very happy with the end result of closing on our new house to our full satisfaction. Thank you again and again. We wish you success in your future projects and have no doubt that any other customer of yours will feel no different than we do.We see you as our agent for life and will be happy to refer all our friends and family to you.

It is our pleasure to write this letter for Dana Dinello. When we began the home buying process, we had no idea where to begin as first time homebuyers. Dana made sure that we understood every step that came with home buying and made us feel extremely comfortable as first time buyers. After talking to Dana about what we wanted, she took us out to look at condos and we found ours on our first day out. Dana had found us something that had everything that we wanted and was also in our price range. We took another week to look at a few more condos to make sure this was the one for us, and then put an offer in within a week of our first outing. Dana was always very flexible with times that fit into both of our schedules, which was difficult with us living an hour apart. She answered all of our questions, and would not let us buy something that wasn't priced right or wasn't a good fit for us. Dana did a great job of negotiating a price that was right in our price range, and getting us into the place we are now. We love our new condo and Dana has checked in with us since our closing to make sure that our move went smoothly and everything was in place at the condo. Dana comes with our highest recommendations; please feel free to contact us if you have any more questions.
Dan and Molly, Horner Park
For a first time home buyer, the process at times was overwhelming. Mason made it all SO much easier and answered every question I had promptly and with great care. No question too big or small, he was there from beginning to end to help out in any way possible. I would recommend him to anyone thinking to buy or sell!

Where do I begin? Indeed, how does one go about the task of tabulating the myriad ways in which James has facilitated the entire process of purchasing a new home. As first time homebuyers, we had heard horror stories from our friends & relatives about the veritable laundry list of things that could potentially go wrong. With James in our corner, we barely had a single hitch. Throughout it all, from traipsing around the city looking at properties (even on Sundays!), to negotiating with the seller in order to ensure we got the most for our money, to the final stroke of the pen on Closing Day, James was there for us. Regardless of the time of day or day of the week, he was always available to answer our questions - and believe me, we had PLENTY of questions! The knowledge he demonstrated in terms of the housing market, the appeal of different neighborhoods, quality of construction (or even, at times, a lack thereof), design aesthetics, etc., was extremely impressive. His congenial personality and jovial - yet delightfully quirky - sense of humor were extremely welcome whenever things started to get hectic. And his quick wit, coupled with a laid back - yet professional - demeanor kept our minds at ease & assuaged our apprehensions whenever we started to feel the stress mounting. All in all, working with James in buying our condo helped make the entire experience quite easy and relatively hassle - free. To say that I would not hesitate to recommend him to someone looking to become a homeowner is a complete understatement. If you're in the market for a house or condo in the Chicagoland area (even if you're just thinking about it!) you'd be remiss not to have James as your Realtor Extraordinaire. In fact, I would insist upon it.

I highly recommend Beverly Bahm from Dream Town Realty if you are looking to buy or sell a home. After searching for a little over a year, I finally found the perfect place, and it wouldn't have happened without Beverly!
Yo_Zon and David
We could not have been more honored to have Megan as our realtor. Not only was she dedicated, she was there for our every question. As first time home owners, she took the time to explain every detail and had our best interest in mind. The best part about everything is that we closed 5 days before our 4th anniversary and that meant so much to us.
Alex has been very courteous and patient while assisting my family in obtaining their first home. He is very easy to reach by phone, email, or text message. His level of expertise and vast knowledge has made this transaction a stress-free process for us. Speaking as a fellow realtor licensed in Indiana, I am very impressed with Alex and also relieved to know that he is not working in my area : ) We would definitely recommend Alex to anyone!

We initially were quite overwhelmed with the concept of purchasing a home but once we met with Stephanie Sullivan, we knew we were in the right hands. Stephanie very calmly and patiently explained the whole process and later we looked at several condos of varying sizes, styles, and locations. Though we never imagined we could afford a house in our budget, Stephanie managed to find and help us buy the one of our dreams and without going over budget. She was very knowledgeable and was reachable at any time for all of our questions. She also referred us to a wonderful inspector, lawyer, and lending agent, which made the whole process much easier than we ever imagined. We very highly recommend Stephanie!

Sally's thoughtful approach and guidance throughout this experience was truly wonderful.

There is no better word to summarize the manner in which Robert treats his clients other than "family". From the moment my wife and I shook his hand until the day we walked into our new home, Robert was with us every step of the way. You will not find an individual that possesses both the mastery of the real estate market and the level of dedication to find the perfect home for his clients. When my wife and I first began our search for a home two summers ago, we had very little idea of what the journey would entail. Initially, my wife and I tried to do the home searching on our own but we soon realized that all the places we were looking at were not matching up to what we wanted in our first home together. We sought the advice of a close friend who had recently closed on his home. He recommended that we hire Robert as our agent, stating that he could guarantee that we would never find a better real estate agent in the world. Although I was skeptical of my friend's bold statement, I can also confidently state that after working with Robert over the past two years, you will not find a better real estate agent in the world. After my initial five minute conversation with Robert, he sent me an email with details on eight potential properties all within thirty minutes of our conversation. When it came time to looking at the homes, Robert personally drove my wife and me to all of the locations and he thoroughly explained the benefits and drawbacks of each of them. He never rushed us through any property and he was always sincerely happy to answer the multiple questions we asked. What was also truly wonderful about working with Robert was that he always had a way of making us feel comfortable and he always had our best interests in mind. After a month of home searching, Robert found us our perfect home. Robert transformed the daunting journey of finding a home into something exciting, fun, and pleasurable. Once we found our new home, we were faced with having to sell or rent my wife's condominium to avoid making two mortgage payments. I knew exactly who to call. Within 48 hours of contacting Robert, he was at my wife's condominium to discuss the pluses and minuses of selling vs. renting. Eventually, the decision was made to rent the property. We handed Robert the keys and left it in his hands to rent the unit. Both Robert and his wife, Lynn, listed the property, screened potential tenants, personally showed the unit themselves, and took care of all the paperwork. We did not have to lift a finger. From the time we handed Robert the keys to the time the lease was signed, less than two weeks had passed. My wife and I always say that we are so blessed to have Robert and Lynn in our lives. Not only have they been the most perfect real estate agents, they have become true friends. We have recommended and will continue to recommend them to anyone who comes our way looking to buy, sell, or rent their home.

I just wanted to take a moment to express my sincere appreciation for your assistance with my condo purchase. Being a first time homebuyer, I did not know what to expect, and from the very beginning, you listened to what I wanted and made it happen. You have a real passion for what you do, and it shows that you are truly concerned with making sure your clients are happy. I felt very confident in your abilities, trusted your advice, and knew you had my best interest in mind while handling this transaction. You guided me through every step of the process, assembled a "dream team" of referrals and with your leadership, I knew I was in great hands. You must have many clients, but I always felt like I had 100% of your attention. No matter how many times (and yes I know it was a lot) I called or emailed you, you were very patient and quick to respond.
I just have to say I am glad you sent me that email one Sunday morning because I could not have asked for a better agent! Everything seemed to go by so fast after that and it feels great to be a homeowner. Thanks for all your hard work and for making this a good experience. You will be my "preferred" referral when anyone I know is looking to buy. I am glad I found the dream town site and they connected me to you. I know now that having a buyer's agent is definitely a good decision, but choosing Nykea has been a GREAT decision! Thanks for helping make my homeownership dream a reality.

We are so very grateful to have had such a kind, talented, and intelligent guide through the process of finding our home. We are all so pleased with the house. It's been a delight to know you. Christie and Fred Henry, Beverly
Dream Town has a great website. It's easy to use and informative. And my agent Nicky was fantastic. She's knowledgeable, responsive and professional. She always answered my questions and concerns. I'd definitely work with Dream Town and Nicky again!!

Elizabeth was able to sell our condo quickly and above the price we had expected. She gave us feedback on how to best setup our condo for showings, and adjusted as she received information from potential buyers. She communicated well with us to schedule showings. Overall it was a great experience.
It was a pleasure having you as a real estate agent. You showed me condominiums which configured to my criteria. I appreciated your focus and how fast you were able to collect all the documentation needed to close. Thank for you help and support, making my dream become a reality.
Harley Martin, Woodlawn
The experience with Dream Town has been just that; a dream. Working with Greg has been absolutely free of troubles. He is very responsive to questions and draws from his previous experience to go above and beyond. Not only did he help me find a great place but he was always on the look out for my best interests. In my new construction we even recommended getting some of the development work done outside of the building contractors to save money. Working with Greg and Dream Town has been an excellent experience where my best interest has always been held in highest regard. I will be maintaining a great relationship with them in the future. Earl Mah, Lakeview
Vered and Tamir
We have been in our new house for three weeks, and wanted to thank you for all your help in finding us our dream house!!! You are the best!!! You really put your heart and soul into helping us. We had so many requirements and with your patience, kindness and experience we found the best home for us. You are highly recommended to anyone we know that is looking to either buy a home or sell there home.
Vered and Tamir, Buffalo Grove
My experience working with Moshe was very enjoyable from start to finish. Due to the timing of my job transfer we ended up working together for almost one year. I relocated here from Denver and therefore my situation presented some unique challenges in searching for the perfect home. I was not familiar with the area so Moshe's vast industry knowledge was extremely valuable in helping me during this journey. Despite my laundry list of wants and needs, he was always willing to work with me to ensure I was happy in my final choice. His actions and kindness affirmed that he cared about me as a person not just another client. I truly appreciated his patience and guidance during this process. The team of professionals he referred to me was as equally helpful and professional.
Being a first time homebuyer, I was overwhelmed by the prospect of jumping into the real estate market. Stephanie was not only incredibly easy to talk to; she's trustworthy, honest and has a wealth of experience and knowledge. When we found the perfect home, we were afraid that it would be beyond our means. Stephanie came up with creative solutions to stay within our budget and she never let us give up even after our first offer was rejected - she continually came up with solutions as to how we could make things work. We not only ended up with the house of our dreams, but we stayed well within our financial means. She continually went the extra mile for us, helping to sublet our apartment so that we could move into our new house without any loose ends. There are so many people involved in the home buying process and we had some suggestions from friends for inspectors and lawyers, but ultimately went with Stephanie's referrals and couldn't have been happier. Buying my first home was an incredible experience because I had Stephanie with me every step of the way; I can't imagine what I would have done without her!

It was a pleasure working with Moshe. He was very helpful showing us properties, answering our questions, and recommending other professionals who assisted in the closing process. We will happily recommend Moshe to our friends looking for houses! John, Waukegan

After having an unsuccessful experience with our first realtor we contacted Josh to help us find our first home/condo. We were overwhelmed by his professionalism, his knowledge and his friendliness. He was eager to show us potential units, he was very organized and well prepared. He listened to us and he was very patient with us even though we only had a couple of weeks to find our first place. He made it possible to find our dream home; we absolutely love our place. We were extremely pleased with the experience and we are so thankful with Josh for having made the process smooth and easy. Thank you Josh, you are the best!

We want to thank you for helping us make our retirement dream come true. Who would have thought we could find the perfect condo so quickly. Your leading us through the on-line search so we could narrow our likes and dislikes saved us many trips to Chicago to look. Then after just 2 days of marathon condo viewing we were able to purchase our perfect condo. You listened to what we wanted and now we can sit on our balcony and look at the lake, walk out the door and be on the beach or walk a couple of blocks to restaurants, grocery stores or just go for a cup of coffee.
We found our perfect Chicago retirement and made a good friend in you in the process. Thanks again.

My wife and I had a pleasant experience working with Marcia. She's a very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient individual with a drive to find exactly what we were looking for. We found the perfect home for us and we thank Marcia for making it happen. We've already recommended Marcia to all our friends and Marcia will definitely be the first person we call for our next real estate investment. Thanks Marcia.

Greg Joubert and I started looking for a property back in August of 2009. He has been consistently supporting us in our home hunt, went through 3 offers on three different places and finally made it with a complex short sale offer 7 months later. Greg demonstrated professional attitude and responsiveness to all our questions and needs. He also has good connections in town which he can quickly utilize, if you need them in your house quest. If you are looking for an agent and he has availability, you would definitely not be mistaken, if you choose him.

These days, when you are buying or selling real estate, you don't just need an agent, you need a partner, and that's what we got in Elizabeth Amidon.
We simply cannot say enough good things about Elizabeth's participation in our purchase experience, as we really put her through a lot. We somehow managed to hit every possible bump in the road along the way to finding the place we purchased, and Elizabeth was there to hold our hand at each step. She was there for us when our first deal cratered, she was there when we thought we wanted a short sale, she was there for us when we despaired of ever finding the mix of features and values we knew we wanted.
She was able to tap her extensive experience and knowledge to discover the vital information that we needed as part of the decision making process. She told us the truth when we needed to hear it, she helped us sort through the conflicting messages to find the right answers on our own and she worked with us to find the best balance between cost and value.
When we looked at the place we now own, we had looked at so many other places that we missed a lot of opportunity and value when we saw it the first time. It was Elizabeth who connected the dots for us, and we are so glad she did. We really do love the place we purchased.
Elizabeth really is everything you could possibly want in an agent, and more. We highly recommend her.

Diana was extraordinarily helpful in our house hunt. She identified our dream house the day it came on the market. She then helped us negotiate in an extremely competitive situation. I'm convinced we would not have won our home without her creative tactics. We're so grateful for your hard work Diana!
Julie and Joe, North Center
Dave Plotkin is not your average agent. He's the agent everybody needs, but few find. What sets Dave apart from the crowd?
He's critical. There's a lot of poor real estate in Chicago. Dave has years of experience in the Chicago market and quickly spots the good, the bad and the ugly.
He'll make time. Finding the right property takes patience. Dave's not a pushy realtor who wants to make a sale ASAP and move on to the next one. Our search took many months, but Dave never lost interest.
He keeps it simple. Dave does details, but not trivial ones. He keeps his eye on the ball and helps you do the same. He tells you what you need to know and ignores the rest.
Contacts. With Dave's referrals, I had a solid real estate team behind me.
Negotiation skills. Dave will go into bat for you during negotiations, getting you a great deal.
Continued support. Dave doesn't walk away once the deal's done. He'll offer advice as you need it.
Buying or selling, the next time I enter the real estate market in Chicago, the first person I'll call is Dave.
Cally, I am satisfied with you as an agent. You are always available to look at properties when it is convenient for your client. I believe I had a clear understanding of what was going on throughout the process, because of the information you provided me.
Christine Dmyterko, Roscoe Village
If you're looking for an amazingly bright, thorough, ingenious, well-organized, extremely informed realtor, look no further because Dee Savic is your lady! Ok, so maybe you're not convinced yet, but by the end of my testimonial, I hope you will be! A little background on me: single, no kids, moved to Chicago from LA in 2006, have a home in LA and bought my first home in Chicago with Dee's assistance, but boy was it a BUMPY ride... not through any fault of Dee's; if it weren't for her, I don't think I would have made it.In Jan. 2009 I put in my offer on my dream home. In February I got my wallet stolen and a day later was laid off from my job. A month later I got a new job and in the interim the house went back on the market but someone else's offer was accepted. I refused to give up on my dream home and prayed and prayed it would come back to me. A week later, Dee called and said, "Lucy, you're the luckiest lady I know, the house is back on the market!" We immediately put in a new offer. I was one of five offers and mine won! But the roller coaster hadn't started moving yet. The same day we went to do the inspection on the property, I fell victim to serious identity theft! Meanwhile, I was having issues with the loan on my first home back in LA. So, I started defaulting on the home in LA while trying to close on the new home in Chicago! I was very honest with Dee from the get go and was shocked that she never left my side and never gave up on me or my home, despite the numerous obstacles we incurred! It was a 6 week battle and I was told the deal should be canceled FOUR TIMES, but I never gave up and neither did Dee! In the end I was ready to give up all of my savings in order to close the deal but she fought tooth and nail to save the deal AND to make sure not one extra penny came out of my savings above the amount that was initially agreed on! If not for Dee's faith in me, her ability to think quick on her feet, her constant desire to help me find a way to obtain my dream home (all the while knowing that if I didn't close on this home, by the following month my perfect credit would be tarnished and I wouldn't be able to get approved on a new home) and her constant follow ups with everyone from the attorney to the selling agent to the asset manager... well, I would not have been able to close on my new home in Chicago and I wouldn't have made such an amazing new friend! She's not just a realtor! She will care for you, your family, and your personal situation and will go above and beyond the call of duty at all hours of the day to make sure you get the home you want!

We would like to thank Moshe for his kindness, patience, and great sense of humor. He was very helpful and always available for us. We searched for over 5 months for a place and he was always there for us. He is a great professional and definitely a very kind person. He became a friend throughout our search process, always here to give us a hand. We thank you so much Moshe for making our home search enjoyable and ultimately fruitful. We have not hesitated to recommend you to all our friends! The Dream Town website is great and easy to use, and the information was more current than other realtor websites.

My girlfriend and I are first time home-buyers and therefore were new to the entire process. Brooke Daitchman was incredibly patient with us throughout our search in showing us literally 100+ properties. In addition to her patience, she referred us to our loan officer and real estate attorney who both turned out to be great. I would absolutely recommend Brooke and Dream Town to anyone starting out on their quest for the perfect home. Our experience definitely exceeded expectations.

Alex listens. Combined with his incredible knowledge of the neighborhoods and the layout of the city, Alex helped us find a home exactly suited for us in Printers Row! First, he determined what we could afford versus what we wanted to pay. He also had the daunting task of finding VA approved listings. He found and emailed many listings filling the criteria, sifted through our choices, made appointments, showed us everything we wanted to see, watched our reactions and helped us pinpoint what was really important to us. If there was any exasperation on his part regarding our indecisiveness, he NEVER showed it. With a little over a month to find something, he never seemed discouraged. He was never impatient. His mantra was, we'll find it, don't worry. and he was right. Alex and Dream Town worked tirelessly to close the deal in our timeframe. And now we're home.

Veronica was VERY patient with us as we tried to navigate our way through the daunting process of finding our first home.

We couldn't have had a better experience! One thing that makes Tammi different from many other real estate professionals is that she truly cares about her clients. She is willing to give her time, opinions, and skills to help you through each step of the sale. She took time out of her busy schedule to meet with us a few times even prior to us deciding to list to help ensure that our house was in its best condition and that it was properly staged. She gave us advice on colors and layout, and she offered simple tips that made a huge difference. It was well worth as we sold our house in 11 days! Outstanding especially in this market! The photos and video she had taken made our house shine! The listing looked amazing online. When we received our offer Tammi took time to walk us through each step and she stayed with us until the closing day to ensure we were good to go. We really couldn't have asked for a better agent or experience!
Bob and Elizabeth, West Lakeview
Stephanie was of INVALUABLE aid in finding and securing my new condo for me. She was with me every step of the way and I am very happy in my new place! Please don't hesitate to make use of Stephanie's talents!!!
My experience with Susan Nice of Dream Town was superb! Susan is very professional, knowledgeable and helpful, and having Susan guide me through a search for a condo was a pleasant experience. She was always available for a phone call or to show a place. Susan's knowledge of the area and buildings we looked at was outstanding, any question I had was answered. The greatest surprise was the fact that I was able to get a great deal and pay far less than the market value, Susan was able to negotiate a monthly payment I could afford. I would highly recommend Susan to others in the Chicago Land area.
Jimmy Sherlock, South Loop
As a first time home buyer, as much as I researched, I was still pretty green to the process. With Riz as my agent it was so easy and exciting. I had no hesitations during the entire process. I've always heard comments about signing the final agreement to be very frightening and nerve racking, but I can honestly say I was completely at ease and never once did I have any doubts as Riz made me feel very confident and certain I was making a smart decision!

We found Neeti by accident and are very glad we did. She helped us nail down our requirements, including the complications of renting with a dog, and especially helped arbitrate the husband and wife wish lists. She showed us 10 or 12 condos in 3 trips, always on time, knowledgeable of the area, well prepared and up positive. We could not have asked for a better guide for our first foray into city living. Neeti really impressed on us the importance of our "wish list", a nicely furnished, move-in ready condo that would allow our dog to be with us, and also being close to where we wanted to be. We feel very lucky to have come upon such a competent, upbeat agent and would not hesitate to recommend her.

Thanks for all your help in find our new home & selling Sheilah's condo! We know that we were picky buyers so we really appreciate all the time and energy that you put into helping with our search. We really love our house and can't wait to complete the renovations and move in!

In my search for a great agent, I found Megan and I haven't looked back since. She is the ultimate professional: knowledgeable, patient, dependable, and personable. Most importantly, she had my back. I couldn't have chosen a better person to work with during the purchase of my new home. Have fun, stay calm and get ready to find your dream home with Megan J. Stewart, I did!

Looking for a new home is both exciting and a little overwhelming. Moshe from Dream Home Realty enabled us to look at the homes we wanted and feel encouraged with our own choices. He was always prompt, patient, kind and friendly. He was always positive, and let us, as buyers, look for ourselves while reinforcing the good things we felt, trying to show objectivity and openness to our choices and tastes. We never felt rushed, had all our questions answered, and got immediate friendly responses by phone or email whenever we contacted him during the process of buying the home. Moving, finding a new home, going through the whole process of buying a home can be very daunting. Choosing and working with a wonderful realtor, like Moshe, was the easy and enjoyable part.
Lucille and Ernest, Arlington Heights
I could not have asked for a better experience than the one I had with Karen! She understood my neighborhood choice of the Southport Corridor and would not give up until we found the perfect place. While I had at first been looking for 1 bedrooms, Karen suggested also looking and 2 bedrooms and as soon as we decided to look at 2 bedrooms, she immediately found my new home! Thanks, Karen!

Karen Fligelman has our heartiest endorsement. Neither of us had ever purchased a home before so the myriad processes, from home search, offering, inspection and closing to financial and legal were daunting to say the least. We relied totally on Karen's experience and expertise to guide and advice us, ultimately, to great success! We love our new home and taken in toto, the process was less overwhelming, much more manageable and even fun thanks to Karen. Karen is an accurate, timely and clear communicator. She always followed up, always arrived for appointments on time and prepared and never rushed us through a viewing. If you are thinking about purchasing a home you won't find a better real estate agent than Karen!

We happened upon Karen while surfing the Dreamtown website, looking for potential houses in Chicago. We had an idea of where we wanted to be but really no idea of what we could get for our money, what housing was like in Chicago or anything else regarding the area. Coming from Houston, we had a limited amount of time in which to physically see houses. Karen helped us narrow our search and get to the heart of what we were really looking for. She set us up with as many houses as we wanted when we visited and the amount of time she allotted to see the houses and travel from one to another was always perfect. She was a wonderful guide but never pressured us to choose one house over another or forced her opinion on us. She was crucial in helping us find the perfect house for our family and getting the best deal we could in the shortest amount of time. We would highly recommend her to anyone we know and would never even consider using another realtor if we decided to move again within the Chicago area. She really helped to ease our transition. For us, she is not only a wonderful realtor, but also a treasured new friend.

I just recently became a first-time home owner. It was a long process, but my Realtor was very patient and understanding for my shopping preference and motives. I started shopping for a condo last summer. Right before I was about to place an offer, my Realtor inquired further on the listing and found that the building/condo association was in the red. I thanked him for his honesty in providing me info that there is be a possibility that a special assessment could be enforced on new and existing owners - as such, I withdrew my offer and postponed my house shopping. I gained a lot of trust in my Realtor for his honesty in going the extra mile in researching the condition of the building. Six months later, we started shopping again and placed an offer on a short sale. Throughout the waiting process and attorney review, my Realtor was very informative as I was new to the process of purchasing a house. Not only did he guide me through the necessary tasks, but he was also very attentive during the process. From shopping for a condo unit last year, I am now an owner of a two-flat investment.

In December 2009, we attempted to purchase a home that was listed as a Short Sale with hopes of being in the home by May 2010. May came and went as did June. At that point we began working with Dave and he was more than we could ask for. There were gimmicks or games and he analyzed each home as if it were he was making the purchase. Additionally, he was a very effective liaison between the mortgage company, lawyers and other realtor. I felt confident and at ease using Dave, and we would do it again.
