We have bought and sold real estate in two continents and 5 states but we have never had the opportunity to work with someone as professional and supportive as you.
As out of town buyers we really appreciated the time you took to familiarize us with the city. After the time we spent together at the beginning of this process we felt like we had a good understanding of the different neighborhoods. It is hard to put a value on just how important the time you took with us at the beginning was but we felt that you went above and beyond.
In the past we have been inundated with homes to view by our realtors. It was therefore a very refreshing change to be provided exclusively with properties that met our requirements. With young children the prospect of traveling around a city all day looking at properties is not all that appealing. However, the fact that we never wasted a trip, together with the fact that you also helped to keep Gavin entertained when Sadie and I were "snooping around" made it surprisingly enjoyable!!
The area in which you have most exceeded our expectations has been with the "post sale" services that you have offered, and continue to offer. In every other real estate transaction that I have been through once the money was in the bank the realtor was gone. I could only tell you the name of one other realtor that we have ever used and that is because she ultimately ended up becoming a family friend. None the less, when I told her about everything you had done for us during our process she did not hesitate to tell us how lucky we were and that, in her opinion, you had gone way above anything that could reasonably have been expected by even the most demanding buyer.
We love our new home and I can assure you that, when it is time to move on, we will not even consider using anyone but you.

We had worked with several realtors over the 2 years we were contemplating buying. Each time we decided not to buy as we were frustrated with the realtors who either didn't seem to grasp what we were looking for or seemed to have alternative motives. The whole process just seemed too big and out of reach for us. All that changed the day we got a call from Robert. We felt immediately at ease with his warm personality, sense of humor, and we didn't feel under pressure to buy as we did from other realtors. We are so very lucky to have ended up working with him on our journey to buying our first home. We had no idea what we were doing or what we were looking for and we were so nervous, intimidated, and confused. His vast knowledge and expertise was extremely comforting and we always felt assured that everything was under control. His unending patience with us, our many questions, and e-mails was so appreciated. We could not be more happy with how everything has turned out. Robert has gone above and way beyond his duties as a realtor and well exceeded our expectations as to what a realtor should do for us. It was evident from the beginning that he feels a personal obligation to his clients and we never once had to question if he had our best interests in mind. We really felt as if we had a good friend with us and watching out for us at all times. He has a eagle eye for detail and caught so many things that we never would've noticed. His memory for those details is also really quite impressive as well. We cannot count how many times we said to each other "Thank goodness Robert is here!" As a side note, he also happens to be a very skilled at home projects which came in very useful to us when envisioning the potential or finding the flaws in our home options. He always made us feel like his only clients with his very prompt responses and dedication to us and our process. His take charge attitude really came in handy when problems arose between the lawyers and selling agents. His clear communication skills quickly helped resolve every issue that came up. He often went out of his way to make things more convenient for us and our busy schedules. Even after the closing, when many other realtors would have written off their clients, Robert is still continuing to address the questions and issues that have come up. He has also assured us that he will remain available to us in the future as well and that gives us great peace of mind. Robert has turned the scary and complex idea of first time home buying into a seemingly smooth and exciting reality for us. We feel as if we have gained a lifetime friend through the process and I'm sure this is how all of his clients feel as he is so personable and pleasant to be with. We cannot say enough good about him and we're so happy to share our experience and enthusiastically recommend his services to everyone. We insist our friends and family work with him and we look forward to also working with him again in the future. A Million Thanks, Robert!

Alejandro was great...We talked about my situation, my budget, and what my requirements where, then we started looking around on the computer to see what was out there...He showed me properties I was interested in, and even nudged me to see properties I thought there was no-way we were going to qualify for...To my disbelief the one property I was absolutely sure we would not get, WE GOT IT!!! I #m finally moved in, and have a wonderful view. Alejandro was consistent, informative, and always kept a positive can do attitude that made the search for a new home a less stressful one... My advice to anyone looking for a new home is to use Alejandro and listen to what he has to say. If you do what Alejandro asks, the whole home buying experience will be less stressful. Believe me, I stress over everything. Thank you again Alex...

I met Eddie after breaking up with my first realtor. She didn't listen to what I wanted and she couldn't make the time to even look at properties with me. Eddie was referred to me, but I didn't really begin working with him until I saw the properties he found for me on the Dream Town website. There were so many that looked like just what I wanted -- I was excited again about continuing my search. Eddie was exactly what a first time home buyer needed! He searched for properties with me, everything he showed me fit my criteria, he introduced me to neighborhoods I hadn't thought about, and he gave me the tools I needed to make one of the biggest decisions of my life!
I have recommended Eddie to all of my friends -- I think he really listens to his clients, understands their needs, and goes out of his way to make the process as easy as possible.

Mr. Moshe Abir is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in the Chicago area and what we liked most was that he asked the sellers many questions we had not thought of. He was patient, diligent and was always willing to provide advice in an impartial way. Yan & Tao, Palatine
Mitch was a wonderful buyer's agent to work with. He guided me through every step of the process and gave great advice. Because of Mitch's patience and help, I was able to find a lovely condo in a great Lakeview building. Because Mitch was attentive to my needs, flexible and knowledgeable, I would definitely recommend him to others who are buying or selling homes.

Dan and Christine Stummer
Amy was the perfect Realtor for us. As we were first time homebuyers and extremely indecisive, she was always patient and made us feel very comfortable. She always kept our interests and wishes in mind when selecting properties for us to see. Her pleasant and relaxed personality took what could have been a very nerve-racking event and made it a very enjoyable experience - even if we did take her all of the city! We would (and have!) recommended Dream Town and Amy to our friends and family. They prove that in this highly competitive space of Realtors - service is the differentiator.

Kara Finnegan is the best and most professional real estate agent we have ever worked with and we have worked with many! Kara truly listened to us; understood our needs and worked very hard to find us the right condo in our price range in the Gold Coast area. We love our condo and neighborhood. When it s time to sell, we are definitely giving Kara a call.
Kathie and Tom Stokes, Gold Coast
I've been searching the Dream Town website for about 3 years now in preparation for buying my first investment property. Finally, after 3 years of browsing, the time came to actually buy a property and I was put in contact with Josh Krish. Working with him has been a great experience. Josh put me in touch with a lawyer for my closing; he is always available to view properties and is just a pleasant person to work with. After 4 or 5 months of searching, we found a great deal on my first 2 flat. I look forward to my next purchase with Josh.
Stacey and Joan
We were looking for a condo for our daughter on the North Shore. After talking with us and listening to our needs, Karen told us she thought Evanston would bea perfect fit. She was right! We found the perfect place, close to the El, Metra, and bus station. Right in the middle of dozens of shops and restaurants, which Stacey loves! The condo itself is a perfect match for her; it felt like home right away. And now it's not only home to our daughter, but also to George, her new kitten!

John and Cathy Derus
Our home buying adventures with Stephanie started almost 2 years ago. In the fall of 2009, John found out he could transfer with his current employer from St. Louis to Chicago. Stephanie was working with a different real estate company at the time, but still had the professionalism, resources, and knowledge we were looking for. Instead of just showing us one apartment, she set us up with the MLS listing database and sent over potential properties that met our criteria (area, number of bedrooms, price, etc) Since we were new to the city of Chicago, the options were overwhelming. Stephanie helped to focus our search. We were going to be in Chicago for a weekend and decided to make a day of looking at apartments. The morning was spent looking on our own and the afternoon was spent looking at about 8 different places with Stephanie. At the end of the day, we found our apartment! It had everything we were looking for, but was priced a little high. Thankfully, Stephanie has excellent negotiation skills! She was able to negotiate rent down by $200 per month! All of these items made Stephanie the first (and only) person that came to mind when we were ready to start looking at houses. During the 1.5 years of living in our apartment, Stephanie started working with Dream Town and kept in contact with us. By the end of 2010, we had started to do our homework and knew we were ready to start taking the search a little more seriously. We met with Stephanie at the Dream Town office in Lincoln Square in January 2011. Even before our meeting, she had us back on the MLS listings and sent over properties based on our skeletal requirements. At the office, Stephanie explained the whole home search and buying process. We also discussed our search criteria in more detail over in-house brewed espresso. It's crazy to think that we we started the search in January, made one offer in March, closed in April, and moved in May! Though it's not that crazy considering we had an expert on our team. Stephanie got to know us, our wants, and our needs. She was also able to interpret our reactions to some of the less than desirable properties we saw. Stephanie was available to walk us through the complex process of making an offer, negotiating inspection points, and hammering out the final closing documents. She skillfully answered every single question or knew who to ask. It also helped that Stephanie has her own team of experts (lender, real estate lawyer, and inspector). John and I can't thank Stephanie enough for her help in making our dream a reality. Real estate is more than just her job, it's her passion. On the day of our closing, Stephanie gave us a gift. The personal touch made all the difference. I'm not compensated to share my review of Stephanie or publicize her seminar. I just think she's a fantastic resource and excellent real estate agent. Plus, she's a prime example of knowing when to bring in an expert.

We were first time home buyers with a very long Must Have list for our ideal home. Moshe was the perfect agent for us. He patiently listened and understood exactly what we wanted and tailored his search to match our requirements. He helped us understand the entire process and shared his invaluable experience and expert tips. He was very upfront with us and always answered our never ending questions promptly with in depth analysis.
He helped tremendous during the price negotiations and always communicated effectively and efficiently with the Seller's agent. I was able to leverage his experience a lot during negotiations. He introduced us to home inspector, attorney and mortgage broker for the home buying process. Every referral turned out to be an excellent service provider and there were no issues at all during the entire process. He was always on the top of things and ensured that everything went as planned. In fact he was more worried about everything for me than I was for myself. He was very accommodating and did not hesitate a bit to spend time with us even on an important holiday for him.
He was always available and really made us feel that we were his only clients. Thanks to Moshe we did find our ideal home. Needless to say, I am sure our relationship with Moshe does not stop here.

As a first-time homebuyer, it was really refreshing to have someone like Swati to help guide me through the process of finding and buying a condo. She was friendly, helpful, and encouraging. I will absolutely recommend Swati and Dream Town to friends or colleagues beginning the search for property in the city. Christopher Spalding, Lincoln Park
Marcia has been my realtor for 3 different home transactions (2 as a buyer, 1 as a seller) and each time I have relied more and more on her judgment and professionalism, and trust her implicitly at every step of the process. I was a novice in the world of buying and selling a home; she was my go-to person throughout the whole process from the housing search to the financing, from the negotiating to the actual move in, and sometimes even beyond for refinancing and tax questions. Her experience and knowledge has been invaluable, and she has taken the time to explain the process to me in a way I can understand. If I have a question she can't answer, she has always been able to find me someone who can speak to it. She has always been on time for our appointments and makes herself available at all hours, which I can't say enough about after dealing with other agents in the home buying process. More important to me than the business aspect, Marcia understands that buying and selling a home is an emotional experience. No matter how much we look at the numbers, neighborhoods, room sizes, and upgrades, these are not the reasons we may fall in love with a place, and she has the patience and the insight to help me find what I am looking for in the perfect home, even if I don't know how to communicate it clearly!
Sarah and Justin
Sandra did an excellent job with helping us buy our first home. From providing great industry contacts to helping us understand the process to making sure we had everything we needed after we moved in. She went out of her way to help us with anything we needed. With Sandra's help we found the perfect condo our second trip out and we couldn't be happier.
Sabina and Jimmy
Sandra was a huge help to us in our search to buy our first home. She made herself available to us and was able to answer or get the answers for any questions we had with the whole process. We appreciated Sandra's patience and after a few searches, she knew exactly what our specifications were and did everything to find listings that suited our needs. She really made us feel as though our purchase and finding the right home was as important to her as it was to us. We really enjoyed having Sandra work with us and would recommend her to anyone!

James and Holly Lee
With the addition of our first child, my wife Holly and I knew that it was time to buy our first home. As avid HGTV viewers, we felt we knew enough about home buying to make the process go smoothly. However, once we began looking for homes in Chicago, we realized we needed some help. After some research online for realtors, we chose Dream Town. Sandra picked up the phone and from then on we felt much more at ease. She helped us narrow our choices down to the most important features and using her expertise, found us our perfect first home. Not only did she help us find our home, she also referred us to a great lender and an even better contractor. Sandra is the type of realtor that first time home buyers should look for. Two months after closing, Sandra still keeps in touch to see how we are doing. We will definitely use her again for our next home purchase.
James & Holly Lee, Jefferson Park
Marcia is great! As someone who was selling their existing place and buying a new one Marcia was able to give me insights on both sides of the table. Throughout the process she really made me feel as if I was her only client! I don't know how she does it, but, she was able to quickly understand what I was looking for, identify the implications of various options, and simplify the process over all. I was able to focus on moving and what I wanted because I knew Marcia had all the details covered for me! I will not hesitate to recommend her to anybody who asks for an excellent agent. Mark Skroch, Lakeview
Nick & Brandi Skidmore
Josh was a pleasure to work with. We were amazed at his quick reaction time sending us properties, often within seconds of when we requested them. Josh understood exactly what we were looking for and didn't waste our time showing us something we wouldn't be completely satisfied with. With this being our first home purchase, he took the additional time to explain to us the course of action, never once pressuring us, or making us feel uncomfortable in any way. Josh even introduced us to knowledgeable mortgage brokers, inspectors, etc -- all of whom made the process that much simpler. We value his expertise, and would definitely work with him again in the future.

As a first time home buyer, investing in my first home was a scary process, but Sally Kats made the experience easy, rewarding, and fun! She helped to calm my nerves and always asked the right questions to assist me in finding the perfect condo to fit exactly what I wanted. Sally is a great listener, hard worker, and totally dedicated to making her clients happy and content with her services. I am pleased to say that Sally is not a realtor who just drops you once the deal is done. Even 9 months after closing on my condo, Sally and I have remained friends & she has continued to be there to assist me in any questions that come up about my property & finances related to it. I have and will continue to recommend Sally to everyone I know!
Kora was very patient going through this new experience with together me. Always responded quickly and has such a positive attitude. It was a pleasure working with her.
Sheri Will, Logan Square
Michelle helped my partners and I to find a great property very quickly after months of searching with another agent and having no luck. She knows her business extremely well, is very easy to talk to and work with, and will go out of her way to keep you informed and to make things happen. I would highly recommend working with her whenever you are in the market for a new building or condo. Mustafa Shabib, West Town
I'm a first time home-buyer and Nykea made the entire process very comfortable for me and words cannot express how much I appreciate her commitment and dedication. I had very specific criteria regarding what I was looking for, so it took me a while to find the perfect condo, but Nykea was very patient and very supportive throughout the entire process. Nykea's knowledge of the real estate market was very instrumental in making sure that we were aware of the many changes that are going on in the housing industry right now. Nykea was able to get me connected with a great lender and a great attorney who also provided great services. I couldn't have asked for a better team of people to help me achieve my dream of home-ownership. Thanks Nykea!!
Thanks again for all of your help in finding my HOME. Your patience & expertise was exceptional. I went into this venture with very little knowledge of real estate and with your guidance I felt comfortable with the buying process of my condo. You really went above and beyond the call of duty in helping me to deal with a difficult seller. Your composure, professionalism and humor made the situation bearable. I am very happy with the outcome of my new home & know that I got a great deal!
Ben Seiden and Katarina Milanovic
After years of contemplating whether we should buy or rent, Kora simplified the whole process and helped us find the perfect property. Every property that she took us to look at, included everything that we wanted in a condo including price range. Kora also always went the extra mile whenever we had questions or concerns. She always promptly responded to our emails our phone calls. Ben Seiden and Katarina Milanovic, Rogers Park
Jay and Debbie Seaver
Ann was a pleasure to work with. She worked around our schedule, picked us up at the airport several times and did not hesitate to give us the time we needed. Being from out of town, her knowledge of Chicago helped us find the ideal location for our needs. We couldn't have been more pleased with the service.
Jay and Debbie, Bridgeport
Erik was great to work with - he made the process very convenient and enjoyable. He was in constant communication, and very proactive in working through the challenges that are part of any real estate transaction. Also, during the search for my new home, he was very helpful with prompting questions, helping me focus on the specifics of what I was looking for. It is easy to become overwhelmed when searching for a new home and Erik was very grounding. Erik made the process very personalized, which is not always the case. He went out of his way to accommodate my schedule, which was important to me as I was busy professionally during the time of my purchase. I found the combination of Dream Town's on-line approach, and Erik's personal approach to be a perfect fit for me.

Denise and Mark Schmidtke
My husband and I were very satisfied with the service and attention we received from our agent, Kora Chang. She was always available to us either by cell phone or email with a ready reply and a smile. We appreciated her knowledge and helpful suggestions. She asked the questions we hadn't thought about! She made buying our condo a pleasure. We will truly miss seeing her every weekend while we hunted for the "perfect" place. We would highly recommend her to other buyers!
Denise and Mark Schmidtke, South Loop
Sandra made my first home buying experience amazing. She took the time to explain the ins and outs of purchasing. I was on a deadline for purchasing, but Sandra made the time and made sure that I made my deadline. Not only has Sandra been a great agent, but I spent so much time with her on my search that she is now a part of the family.
Saskia, Darryl, & Itaxso
We would not have bought our new home without our Dream Town agent, Tosh Chandy. He guided us through every step of the process with patience, care and style. He helped us understand the market and negotiate a great price. We very much recommend this service to anyone thinking about buying a home.
Saskia, Darryl, & Itaxso, Hyde Park
Sarah and Andrew
Ben Shalom was the perfect real estate agent first time homebuyers could ask for. From our first meeting, where he explained the entire process, to the close day, he was amazing. He understood our wants and needs for a home and found many homes that met our expectations. He was always genuine and told us exactly what he thought of every property that was viewed, from great features to potential drawbacks. He was always easy to get a hold of whether via phone or email and got back to us very timely. We will absolutely recommend him to our friends and family and use him again if we need another home in Chicago.
Sarah and Andrew, Old Town
As an independent woman, first time home buying made me very tense. Considering I have 3 jobs and a busy schedule Moshe was very accommodating, even on short notice. As time went on we became friends and I became aware of what to look for in a good house. He understood exactly what I needed and wanted. Picky as I was, Moshe found the perfect home for me. I realized Moshe is not a sales person, he is a consultant. He took the time and trouble to help me find the exact house I wanted and within my budget - and we got an amazing deal!. Moshe is a very professional and caring person. I can't thank him enough for his patience with me. I feel very comfortable recommending Moshe to my family and friends. There is no doubt he will also be my future Realtor.
Like most first-time home buyers, I started my search on Google months before I was ready to commit to a purchase. Dream Town had been recommended by a friend and after a short visit to the site, I was contacted by Jared. Jared's first contact offered a no strings attached approach in helping me with my search. From the start Jared understood I may not be able to purchase in the near future and allowed my search to progress at my pace. What I liked most about Jared is he took the time to learn and understood my needs as well as my wants. In the first meeting we were able to establish some basic characteristics of my future home. After our first round of viewings Jared was able to help me identify exactly what was important to me while offering objective considerations. Before I knew it I was signing the papers to my perfect place. Thanks Jared!
Russell L. and Amanda S.
We really enjoyed working with you. I found your knowledge of the different neighborhoods extremely helpful. I also thought you raised some very good questions as we considered different homes - you got us thinking about issues that we otherwise may have downplayed. I think you did a good job negotiating the sales price. You always honored our wishes (e. g. , counter offers), but also told us when you had a different opinion. We valued your honesty and candor. I also appreciated your flexibility - I know several homes were not easy to see, but you always got us in. I would most certainly use you again and will happily recommend you to my friends and colleagues.
Russell L. and Amanda S. , West Loop
Sally was the first real estate agent that I spoke to when I started searching for my first home and I consider myself very lucky for that fact. She stuck with me for about 4 months of continuous condo searches around the city until I finally found the one that I call home today. She's patient, intelligent, funny and tons of fun! She helped me with every aspect of the purchase, from recommending mortgage companies to inspection agencies as well as talking me through my first offer and holding my hand through my panic sessions. The great thing is that I know I can still count on her to help me with anything even after a year of living in my condo. She's amazing and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!
Ruma, Humboldt Park
I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a realtor. You could not have been more helpful and attuned to my wants and needs in a condo. I really enjoyed working with you and appreciate all the hard work you did to find me a home. As my friends start purchasing their homes, I'll be passing on your number. Thanks so much!
Lisa Meindl, Bucktown
Working with Bob and Dream Town was an absolutely wonderful experience. We were moving to Chicago from out of state and knew very little about the area. Bob welcomed us with open arms and treated us like family. He organized two jam packed weekends with lots of different properties that met our criteria. He was very flexible with his schedule and even picked us up when needed. We were ecstatic to find a place we absolutely love and it was truly due to Bob and all of his hard work!

When we first started to look for our first home together, we needed help to find the "perfect" one for us. Not only was Josh able to help us, but we knew that we could ask him anything and get an honest answer! We could talk to Josh as a friend, and he would still maintain his professionalism. After visiting several places, we found our "dream home" in our "dream town!
I can't thank you enough for all your help and support throughout this process. As a professional in the hospitality industry, it is really hard to WOW me with great customer service. I am continually let down, and dissatisfied when I expect great customer service. However, in this instance I was WOWED over and over again.
You were always their when I needed you to be, answering all my questions and making me feel like I was your only customer. Even when I was busy at work I felt at ease knowing you were there representing me. As we both said, if it was meant to be it will work out. And from the beginning it truly was. I was lucky to find such a great realtor to walk me through this process, lucky to know that you truly cared, even though my purchase was small, and lucky for someone to continue to work with me even after the contract was finalized.
I can't thank you enough for all your help. I know that you will be the first person I look to when it comes to upgrading to a larger space in a few years, and hopefully before that I will be able to refer you to my friends and family in the market for a new home.
In closing I want to thank you for all your work and dedication. I know I could have never done it without you! Good luck in all your future endeavors and I hope our paths will cross once again in the future.
All the best,
I just wanted to say how thankful I am to you for setting everything up so quickly and being very flexible. I can imagine how painful the process might have been without you!
Finding my first home in under a month is no easy task, let alone a home that I love. Misha jumped right into the process with me and made sure that we were on track the whole way. Thanks to Misha's amazing expertise, attention to detail, easy-going personality, and flexibility, I found, bought, and moved in to a home that I love in 4 weeks.

Since this was our first home, we had no idea that the buying process was so complicated and nerve wrecking. Our realtor Moshe made the process easy to understand and provided us with some valuable tips which paid off at the end. Thank you for your expertise and patience. Katrazina & Pawel, Palatine
Due to a job relocation within my company I was faced with the heavy task of having to sell my condo in an unstable housing market and certainly not the best economy. This was my first experience with the home selling process and I knew it was probably going to be a challenging one. The services of Dreamtown and Brooke were recommended to me for my real estate needs, so I entrusted them in advising me on the best way to market and sell my property. Brooke and Dreamtown exceeded my expectations with their knowledge of Chicago real estate, their advice on how to market and sell my property, and most importantly their consistent follow through and communication. I was extremely impressed with the amount of viewings on my property week after week. Due to their hard work and dedication my condo was sold in less than 30 days! This was a huge relief for me especially being in the situation I was in. I hope to come back to Chicago in a couple years and I will definitely be retaining the services of Dreamtown and Brooke for my real estate needs.
Pat Hogan, Lincoln Park
Nimi is wonderfully reassuring and a true go-getter. She made the process of buying my first foreclosure very painless. She's on top of everything, very knowledgeable and helpful. I wouldn't trade her for anything. Thanks so much Nimi.
Vicki & Stuart Owen
Thank you for your assistance in finding our home! We completed much more quickly than originally anticipated and your advice on which lawyer to use made this happen.
The Dream Town and web site email service is a real bonus and helps with the selection of properties.

Marty & Erin Orth
We had such a great experience with Dream Town, especially working with both Renato and Carmen. Renato met with us and really consulted on what we were looking for and how to get us there. Everyone was incredibly patient and courteous during a period that was time consuming and stressful. They made the transition so much easier and found us the perfect new home. We really enjoyed working with Dream Town and would refer their services to any home. buyer. Marty & Erin Orth, Uptown
Karen & Doug Oram
As first time home buyers, Doug and I tried to come as armed as possible with information, which of course wasn't near enough! We are so glad that John and Misha were there to help us. In addition to taking our sometimes frantic calls at all times of the day, they also gave excellent recommendations for lawyers and places to get home loans. Through the Dream Town website we were able to communicate efficiently and exchange information about the kind of homes we were looking for. To top it all off, even my parents loved them, and enjoyed chatting with them. I don't think we could have asked for a better pair of people to lead us through our first home buying experience!
Thanks again for everything!
Karen & Doug Oram, Aurora
Dream Town started out as a website I used to get an idea of what properties were available in Chicago. I used Dream Town because the website was the easiest to navigate with the most information. When I finally decided that I was ready to go out and look at properties Natalie extremely helpful. She was very understanding, patient and accommodating. Natalie made the most nerve racking decision of my life a pleasure.

Buying a home is a humbling and a very personal experience. This significant acquisition was an aspiration that my husband and I dreamed about from the moment we decided that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. Owning our first home was not just a financial investment, for us, it was an inauguration into the elite club of maturity and it would a legacy that we would leave behind for our children. Because of the significance of this decision, my husband and I felt that it required a realtor who was very professional, sensitive to our specific wants and needs and someone who we could entrust with our infinite dreams. Nykea was the personification of these characteristics and was a welcomed anomaly. Unlike the realtors that we initiated before, Nykea was always on time, worked day and night for us and realized the importance of finding "the right home". I remember when we met Nykea for the first time at a local Starbucks. She struck me as a very confident and professional person who was very cultured in the real estate industry. She immediately explicated the details of the sequence of home ownership and concluded the brief, but informative, tutorial by arrogantly proclaiming, "I will find you a home in 30 days". I remember looking at my husband with a cynical smirk and thinking to myself that she would be added to the list of superfluous realtors that preceded her. To my surprise, Nykea not only found our dream home in less than 30 days, she managed to find everything we dreamed of inside the walls of our new residence during a terrible housing market. She worked assiduously on our behalf and smoothly navigated us through a process that many deemed problematical, stressful and exasperating. Nykea made this process a delightful experience and we feel blessed to have had her accompany us on our expedition of homeownership. Additional, she will forever be considered a part of our family and will pleasantly be remembered as the person who was instrumental in making our dreams come true. Very few people surprise me

My fiancé and I were very impressed with how dedicated Josh was to finding us our new home from the start of the process all the way to the end. He was extremely organized and made sure any concern of ours was well answered or addressed. Josh worked extremely hard and would drop anything to assist us with our search when we needed. We felt that not only was Josh there to find us a home, but he truly cared about finding us the best home, the one we truly wanted and would stop at nothing else to accomplish that. He is very nice and friendly and a great person to work with. We are extremely happy that we used Josh as our agent.

Merav has been a great help in walking me through the process of buying a new home. I am a first time home owner and was moving from San Francisco to Chicago. My plan was to be in escrow before the move and close before the first time home owner tax credit expired, therefore over 2 long weekends of traveling between the 2 cities, drinking a lot of coffee, viewing many condo units initially in few different neighborhoods and seeing 4 condos a second time...we found the condo that was right for me well within the timeframe I had planned! Being new to the city Merav was also able to refer me to a fantastic inspector, attorney and moving company. Merav went above and beyond standard realtor duties and I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a new home!
