Suzanne & Shankar Das
We were extremely pleased with the overall quality of Dream Town, particularly our agent, Pamela Plotkin. She was very helpful and answered all of our questions and was very patient during our decision making periods. When we found out the seller accepted our contract, Pamela was very thorough with all proceedings and even recommended our attorney and inspector, who were also very impressive. Pamela took care of all of the details so that we did not have to worry about anything slipping through the cracks. Overall, great service, great experience! We have referred friends to her and will continue to do so. This was a great experience, no doubt about it. Great job -you're awesome! We love our new home.
Suzanne & Shankar Das, Albany Park
As first time home buyers we were a little anxious but we gave Yogi our search criteria and basically he took care of the rest. . . it was as easy as that!!!
Hilary & Matthew Cox
Eric Vega at Dream Town was great. He was very helpful. Eric was always there to answer all of our questions and help in any way he could.
Hilary & Matthew Cox, Berwyn
Not only was Erika personable and knowledgeable about the whole condo buying process, it was very evident that she truly wanted to find the RIGHT property for me, one that was a good fit and I would be happy in. We looked East, West, North, South, High and Low . . . just because I wanted to be sure I was in a neighborhood and place that I wanted. The bedrooms in my price point were too small in Wicker Park. In the south loop I could only afford a one bedroom when a two bedroom was what I wanted. She was patient and was eager to go out again and again, showing me place after place. Not only will I recommend her to my friends and family, I will use her again personally next time I buy. I ended up with more than a great condo in the process; I ended up with a friend.
Matthew Cooksey, Garfield Park
I stopped in to the Dream Town office to ask some questions, and was lucky enough to meet Kora. She did a great job of explaining the steps, making me feel much more comfortable about the process. Understanding exactly what I was looking for, she helped me ask the right questions, expertly handled all of the details, and found me a great deal on the perfect home. Kora's guidance and reliability were more than I expected - especially helpful since this was my first purchase. It was truly a wonderful experience. I would work with Kora again in a heartbeat.

We chose the Dream Town website because it was a great way to review the market for condos, but we had no idea how indispensable Mark Miles would turn out to be! When it came time to purchase a condo for our son, Mark made it possible for us to view eighteen in two days, negotiate bids and purchase, close and take occupancy in two weeks from the day we viewed the first condo! We live out of state, yet we made only one trip to Chicago until the closing and the move, thanks to Mark's knowledge of the market, organization, attention to detail - and to us.
He's consistently quick to respond to any question or concern and he's informative without being pushy. After the purchase, he was still "on the job," checking the final touches in the condo, even measuring windows for us.
Mark's extremely personable, making all our transactions enjoyable. He understood what we wanted - and helped make it happen in an incredibly short period of time. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor.

I came across Chad Vanags purely by coincidence when I was doing research about lofts in Chicago from my then current home in Abilene, Texas. Chadā¬"s picture and contact information just happened to be attached to the loft I had as number one on my list. This was nothing short of a miracle for me and my husband, John, because Chad turned out to be amazing at his job, full of useful information about the new city we were moving to, and ultimately became a friend. How many people looking for a new home get all of that?
I spoke to Chad on the phone and by email numerous times before our initial house hunting trip to Chicago. I had new questions and concerns nearly every day and Chad was so kind and timely with his answers. I never had to wait more than a few hours before he responded with my answers and usually provided additional related information. Chad also seemed to have a real grasp of what my husband and I were looking for from our phone conversations.
Armed with a notebook full of MLS listings that I had carefully highlighted and painstakingly considered I met Chad for the first time when he picked me up outside my hotel. My first reaction was to think how young he was and in the back of my mind worry a little bit about his lack of experience. How silly that was! Chad and I whizzed around the city racing from one property to another. This may sound like a bad thing, but I assure you it was not. My husband and I knew EXACTLY what we did and didnā¬"t like and it was very easy for me to determine quickly if we liked it. At this pace we were able to cram in 10-12 properties each day maximizing my time and my trip to Chicago. So much so, that my husband and I decided to make an offer on a loft in the West Loop. This is when Chad really went from being our Realtor to our advocate!
Little did we know that the sellers and the sellerā¬"s agent where going to be completely difficult and unyielding in the negotiation process. Chad went to bat for us over and over again. And it was a real battle from beginning to end. The seller and his agent made each and every step as miserable as I believe anyone could, but Chad was there each time puffing out his chest on our behalf. At the walk through there were numerous issues with the property which had been agreed to but had not been addressed. John and I trusted Chad so much by that time that we asked him to do the final walk through the morning of the closing because of the ridiculous hour that it was scheduled for with the full confidence that if he thought it was okay that it would be. And it was!
Throughout our entire experience Chad worked to ease our anxiety and make our move easy and fun. Not once did Chad ever act as if he was frustrated, irritated or even angry. He was a thorough joy to work with and is a true asset to your company.
Misha was a pleasure to work with! As a relocation person, I had no idea where I wanted to live other than close to my office. Misha offered up great suggestions of areas that she felt would be a good fit based on my expectations, personality, social requirements, etc. She not only knows the real estate market but she made the house-hunting process fun at the same time. I felt like she was a good friend and I found her enthusiasm infectious! In addition, my closing was a breeze too and handled very efficiently thanks to her excellent contacts. I will definitely use Misha again when/if I sell my condo. And, she will be highly recommended to anyone I know requiring real estate needs in the future.
Leslie Clark, South Loop
Terri was very easy to work with and really worked around my schedule. She had a great concept of what I was looking for and worked with my stipulations. It was easy for me to let her know how I felt about a particular property; she could tell when I knew it wasn't right for me and then when I found the "ONE". Terri also helped me to get through the closing process in a very timely manner because I was on a very strict time schedule and had to have everything done within less than 30 days. I had a great time working with Terri and I have already recommended her to one of my friends.
Julianne Cisek, Lakeview
Ting was a fantastic agent. She always made sure to keep me afloat on all the new properties that fit my criteria for a home and was flexible with my schedule. In addition, she's very professional and has a great personality! She made the process of purchasing my new home a fun and easy experience, and I'll definitely use her again in the future! I'd recommend her to all of my close friends and family as well. She is great.

Chun and Shujuan
Thank you Tom for helping us to buy a house in Chicago. We lived in Ohio and were not familiar with Chicago completely and we were also buying our first house. We did not know many things, but Tom helped us find a house we love. He is dependable and helpful. We believe he is a very excellent agent and we thank his work. If I have a friend who wants to find an agent to buy a house in Chicago, I definitely will introduce Tom to him or her. Chun and Shujuan, Edison Park
Courteous, professional and impeccable service are thoughts that I think about when I reflect back to the interaction with my agent at Dreamtown. Misha was able to help me relocate from New Jersey to Chicago smoothly. She helped me identify the neighborhood, and the property that suited my desire, style, finances and proximity to amenities. She has always been on time and return all my inquiries as fast as possible. I know I am not her only client but it sure felt that way. And during the negotiations, preparation, and closing, she was always on my side and looked out for my interests. Simply, an outstanding company and agent. I'm glad I went with Misha and Dream Town Realty.
Enjoy the rest of the summer and let's keep in touch.

My dog, Honey, and I moved to Chicago from St. Louis, MO. I fortunately found Mark on the Dreamtown website. He was such a big help to me. I had to fly in on a few occasions to look at properties and Mark always had the showings lined up allowing me to see what I wanted in the least amount of time possible.
Since I moved from out of state, Mark dealt with the small issues for me that must be done for a move that I couldn't handle long distance. For example, he worked with the alderman's office for moving truck parking permits, and he really looked out for us in all aspects. I was ready to pay full price for my home, but Mark negotiated a lower selling price, even though that meant a lower commission for him. I wholeheartedly recommend Mark if you want an agent who has your best interests in mind.

I am writing to you regarding my experience with Misha Immormino, our Realtor for the simultaneous sale of our condo and purchase of our home this fall/winter.
My husband and I had an excellent relationship with Mrs. Immormino and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a real estate transaction. She was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and very helpful in every step of the process. She came prepared to our interviews for a Realtor and spent an hour with us showing us examples of how she would market our home and how she would assist us in our search for a new place. We interviewed five agents from various firms, including those who worked at boutique agencies to the big name real estate companies. We also spoke to agents who had many years of experience.
Mrs. Immormino was upfront with the fact she has only been in this job less than a year. While that initially was a concern for us, she answered every question we asked of her with intelligence and passion. What also impressed us was her willingness to do research and ask questions if she did not know the answer immediately. Unlike two of the more-experienced agents we interviewed who tried to steer us from the housing regions we sought, Mrs. Immormino did no such thing and helped us find several locations in our price range.
We looked at several homes before we found the one we wanted and she offered several examples of how to proceed in the bidding process.
The purchase of our home went smoothly up until the final walk-through, when the previous home owners left the home in a disheveled state. The agent of the homeowners tried to ignore our calls, but Mrs. Immormino was assertive up to and through the closing. She held the previous owners agent to a monetary concession before we would sign the papers. Mrs. Immormino even answered questions from us after the closing, when she had no obligation to do so.
Regarding the sale of our condo, she was aggressive in marketing the place and was helpful in helping us get the condo in order and coming up with a price. We had a strong interest in our unit, nearly daily showings until a final offer. The only misstep she might have had was not doing an open house soon after the listing, but considering that we had an offer (which eventually fell through) by the first showing, it was understandable. The sale of our unit went fast - within two weeks - despite the fact it was listed in late October, traditionally a slow time for home sales.
We were fortunate to get into a bidding war for our condo and Mrs. Immormino was able to guide us through our options, offering suggestions of how to handle this windfall.
On the Dreamtown website, Mrs. Immormino's biography discusses her passion for service and this is no understatement. Even before we signed on with Dreamtown, she answered emails promptly and at anytime of the day. Whenever there were developments in the home sale/search, Mrs. Immormino called/emailed/faxed as soon as she could. Additionally, she quickly returned phone calls. I never had to wait long for a returned message. Other agents we contacted were less assertive in their initial business dealings, and Mrs. Immormino's emphasis on service was a big factor in our decision to sign with Dreamtown.
Overall, we had an exceptionally talented agent in Mrs. Immormino and Dreamtown is fortunate to have such a dedicated worker. I am sure she will continue to impress future clients and be an excellent representative for Dreamtown.

Franco & Cameron
As first time buyers we were excited to begin our process. After not having a good experience with our first realtor, we were matched with Arielle. Her Enthusiasm and professionalism were refreshing. She answered countless questions and calls at any time of the day. She was resourceful and honest. The overall experience was great and we would recommend her to our friends.
Franco & Cameron, Rogers Park
Working with Terri was the best experience one could ever ask for with a realtor. She went out of her way countless times to administer the highest level of customer satisfaction. She spent entire days with me as we searched high and low for an exact fit. She even studied a little Italian to make me feel like I was back home in Milan. Our wonderful, laughing, flawless relationship still exists today.
Arthur Cafiero, Lakeview
Dear Dream Town,
Misha Immormino served as my agent for the purchase of a condo in Chicago. I wanted to write a quick note to let you know my thoughts about the experience.
In short, Misha (and as a result, Dream Town) was great. Though completely professional throughout, after the first week of looking at properties, it was like going to look at them with a friend. Misha never pressured me to look at properties that I didn't show interest in. She never pressured me to make an offer. But she made sure to tell me what she liked and didn't like about places, often helping me think of things that maybe I wouldn't have. As I mentioned earlier, after the first week or so, we were on the same page and we could both tell whether or not I liked the place (or if she did). Misha was great to work with and reflects very well upon Dream Town. I will recommend her to any friend of mine that is in the market for a real estate agent in the future. And, as she was nice enough to come to a holiday/house warming party I threw recently, let me also let you know that she makes great jalapeno poppers.
I'm probably not telling you folks at Dream Town anything you don't already know. Misha is great. Give her a big bonus.
Joe Byrne, West Bucktown
We are first time buyers. Braidy walked us through the entire process. He went the extra mile to answer all our questions in a timely manner and returned our phone calls! He stood by us at the closing, and helped us push closing dates when we had unforeseen personal issues. Thank you Braidy. I would definitely recommend his services to other prospective buyers!
Ramon Brigantti, Lakeview
I am a recent first time home buyer and Misha Immormino was my real estate agent. I could not have asked for a better agent to help and assist me with all the cliches of what it means to be a first time buyer. Misha guided me through the financial, psychological and emotional components that come with buying your first home. She helped match me with a condo and neighborhood that matched my personality. She took the time to get to know me and what I wanted with my relocation from the suburbs to the city. I enjoyed pounding the pavement with Misha. She included my family in the house hunting and we all got to know each other on a personal level. I have shared laughs, disappointments, and many experiences with Misha in a short amount of time, and I consider Misha my friend at the end of all of this. Just when I thought I couldn't bear to see another overpriced condo with kelly green shag carpet, Misha taught me that it would be all worth while; and she was right! I will forever be grateful to her and all the hard work she put into making sure I found my dream house.
Carolyn Brescia, Printer's Row
Just want to tell you from a Mom's perspective, you were great during our search for a condo. Seeing your daughter leave the "nest" is not an easy thing no matter what age. As you might have noticed we are a very close family. Just want to say "thanks" for making Ken and I feel like we were just as important as Carolyn. I know I was a handful. City life kind of scares me, but you sure put me at ease. The building she chose is perfect and her place is darling. It looks soooo different. No more orange walls!!!! Let me tell you, that I will recommend you to any "Mom" out there shadowing her daughter. I am sure Carolyn has great words for you too!! But as usual, just thought I would butt in!!!! Take care, keep in touch. You were great, especially for me!!! You just made me feel comfortable with her decision to move to the city. Thanks again.
Love you much!!!
Erika was so wonderful to work with throughout this whole process. I loved how she got just as excited as I did when I found my new home and can't wait to see what I do with the place! I found Dream Town to have a very user-friendly website and very friendly and helpful realtors . . . thanks! I'll be sure to refer Erika to my friends when they're in the market to buy!
Amanda Booth, Lakeview
Hello Tammi, First I wanted to thank you for the help in finding a place in Chicago. When I initially knew that I may get that job promotion and have a chance to transfer to Chicago, I started to look at places in the city. I knew I wanted to live in the city but which part? What areas would l like? I knew that selecting a realtor would be a big decision but I knew I needed the help. I went online and started to check out some properties, I saw Dreamtown Realty everywhere and particularly say Tammi associated with the property that interested me. I emailed her and she emailed me right back which I thought was different. She worked late into the night which was good for me since I worked all day and could not look during work. After numerous showings and open houses, I am happy to say that I just closed and it was a pleasure to work with Tammi and Dreamtown Realty. I have and would refer her to my friends and/or family.

Sold in Oak Lawn, Purchased in Homewood
Anita Holubiak was really great to work with. . . she was always available and she was patient with our 1001 requests. The entire process was extremely easy as she sold our condo in just 4 days and helped us to find our new home in 3 weeks. We were new to the house buying process and Anita was very helpful, even finding us a really great lawyer to work with. Furthermore, although her office is in the city, she was a pro with the suburb housing market as well. . . showing us houses that were suited for us, she really had our wants and needs down and was very accommodating. Thank you Anita and Dream Town for all of your work in helping Mick and I find our house. . . we couldn't have gotten this house without your help. "
Thanks again for the wine and the gift card. . . we will DEFINITELY put it to good use!! :)

Amy made the transition from selling our first condo to buying a bigger one a very smooth and stress-free event. She made everything very easy for us. We have been considering upgrading again to a single family home for the last 6 months and Amy has been very patient and very willing to show us houses around our schedule. We look forward to having Amy sell our condo and help us find the perfect house for our expanding family. We would highly recommend Amy for anyone looking for a stress-free and even fun experience in buying a home.

Having worked as a sales agent for multiple condo and town home constructions in Chicago over the past five years, Bonnie understands the developer side of the business. By leveraging this knowledge Bonnie delivers value added 'no nonsense' advice to her client's. Bonnie's professionalism and tireless effort to meet and understand her client's needs resulted in me finding the home I was looking for. My experience with Bonnie was great and I would use her for future home searches in Chicago!

Mary and Joseph Bliss
My husband and I were very nervous about buying a home for the first time. Terri eased us into the prospect of owning a home by explaining everything simply and showing us homes via email. When we actually started going into homes, Terri was very patient with us. We looked at about 20 homes before we found the one we fell in love with. Each time we viewed a house that was not acceptable; Terri modified her search based on our taste. She listened carefully to what we liked and didn't like and made the appropriate changes in our search. We cannot believe how dedicated Terri was to finding us a home; she drove over an hour and a half to look at houses with us! Thank you Terri for all of your hard work!
Mary and Joseph Bliss, Plainfield
Misha Immormino is a wonderful real estate agent. I feel extremely fortunate that she was there to help me buy my first condo and I would highly recommend both her and her company (Dreamtown. com) to all of my friends.
As a first time homeowner, I was fairly clueless about the process and I'm grateful that Misha was there to walk me through it.
Misha is both friendly and laid back, but at the same time highly organized and efficient. She definitely knows the Chicago real estate market! Misha made every effort to match my wants/needs with my budget. She certainly didn't do anything to make me feel pressured or manipulated, which I really appreciate because buying a place is already a highly stressful situation. Dreamtown. com is great because it enabled me to start the looking process months in advance and from my computer.
In closing, I would highly recommend both Misha and Dreamtown. com to all my friends.
Bill R. , Uptown
My experience with Greg Alley of Dream Town was excellent. Greg took the time to fully understand my "wishlist" and remained faithful to my criteria even though it seemed as if we would never find it. As a first-time home buyer, I felt fortunate to have worked with an agent who is patient and never suggested that I settle for anything less than what I wanted. From our first meeting to the closing on my new property, Greg proved himself to be professional, positive, knowledgeable and an all-around great guy.
Braidy knows Chicago Real Estate! His knowledge of local neighborhoods was invaluable and his negotiation skills are second to none. Thanks for making my purchase an easy transaction. I will refer Braidy to everyone I know!
Mike Belczak, Uptown
Jim showed me great properties- always knowing exactly what I was looking for. He was always willing to work around my strange hours as well. Also, his professional referrals worked out great.

Jim and Amy Battle
First of all we were impressed by the amount of information we could find on the Dream Town website, then Tom took the time, before even meeting us face to face, to extensively explore all the options available to us. As a result we were able to find the perfect place to live for a price we didn't think possible.
Jim and Amy Battle, Wrigleyville
I just finished my second closing with Tammi. She sold my first place in 18 days and helped me find my new condo one month later. She is extremely knowledgeable about all Chicago neighborhoods and is great to work with.
Dream Town and my agent Ben Shalom were very diligent through the entire process. He guided me through the process and advised me very well. Thanks for being there with me and helping me with this big step in my life!

Annette Barbier and Drew Browning
Beverly worked with us for almost a year to find the place that was right for us. We had a very exacting set of requirements, and she was always patient and helpful, going out of her way to seek out relevant information for us. She has an extensive list of contacts which she drew upon for our benefit, and she was clearly up to date with all aspects of the real estate market which helped us enormously in our search. We're very grateful to have found her, and would recommend her highly to other housing seekers.
Annette Barbier and Drew Browning, West Loop
Yogi was very accommodating to all of my needs. He did a great job helping me find properties that would suit my needs and provided plenty of advice that aided me as a first time buyer. He was very responsive to my questions and concerns and worked around my schedule to find time to show me properties. He definitely helped to make the whole process much easier.

Michael and Naomi Bailie
During this past year my wife Naomi and I worked with Mark to purchase a condo in downtown Chicago. We had a great experience. We enjoyed Mark's company and his flexibility with our somewhat crazy schedules was a really joy. He kept us informed and provided us with a large number of opportunities to see properties. The whole process was stress free and we will recommend him to others.
Michael and Naomi Bailie, South Loop
Kirstin and Kevin Bacon
My husband and I just purchased our first condo with the help or Beverly Bahm from Dream Town Realtors. Beverly was extremely knowledgeable and helpful through every step. Since this was our first experience buying a home, we loved that Beverly knew just what to ask and just what to look for so that my husband and I could just kind of go along for the ride. She got a good idea of what we liked and didn't, and from that information knew exactly what to ask of the unit sellers.
We were very comfortable with Beverly and knew she had an interest in our happiness. Never once did she not return a phone call or sound irritated at the thousand questions we had. She took us through everything we needed to know about the process as if she had all the time in the world. She really made us feel as if we were her only clients, even though we knew differently.
The dozens and dozens of listings she sent us were a great help in our search. This allowed us to look at our convenience and send Beverly what the ones we were interested in and throw out the ones we weren't. This was all at our own pace; we never felt pressured to look at anything we weren't interested in.
Beverly referred us to various other people we would need such as lawyers, inspectors and mortgage brokers who also helped us along the way. Beverly was there through every step, even though she didn't need to be. We had a few bumps in the purchasing road due to the lack of professionalism on the developer's side, but through everything Beverly helped us and made us confident that everything would be fixed. She went above and beyond, and for that we are thankful. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor.
I just moved into my condo and I love it! It's everything that I wanted and plenty more. I definitely couldn't have done it without Beverly's help. She was very understanding and patient with my concerns about buying my first home. She made sure I was comfortable with the entire process, and helped me figure out what I wanted and best for me. When we found the place that was best for me, she knew that I loved it without me having to say anything! She guided me throughout the entire process with all the details I needed to feel comfortable and confident about my purchase. She knows so much about the business and was an amazing resource up until the day I closed on the condo. Thanks Beverly!!!! Kanya Babu, Gold Coast
Alison Aviles and Jared Dunn
My fiance and I were relocating from Orlando, Florida and only had one weekend to find our dream home in Chicago. We knew we wanted to be downtown and we had a budget, but that's about it. Mark from Dream Town was able to provide us with great suggestions and criteria for narrowing our search. Not only was the Dream Town website incredibly easy to use, our experience with our Dream Town Realtor, Mark Miles was absolutely wonderful. Mark was always available on such short notice and helped us make the best use of our short time in Chicago. We're so glad we used Dream Town to find our perfect home and we couldn't be happier. We would recommend them to anyone and we will definitely use them again when we're ready to sell!
Alison Aviles and Jared Dunn, West Loop
Dream Town Realty is of great service to those searching to find the perfect home. Its access to some of the greatest spots on today's market and the help of its well-informed agents make buying a simple and enjoyable process. Dream Town helped me find the right home in the right place at the right price. Excellent service!

Bobby and Sue Asaro
Just a quick note to say how wonderful it was to work with your company on the purchase of our condo, especially Rich Betzing. He was a pleasure to deal with, and we always felt he kept our best interests at heart. He was never pushy, but was polite and professional at all times. If we ever purchase another property in Chicago it would definitely be through Rich, because of his great personal service and professionalism.
Bobby and Sue Asaro, The Loop
My experience with Dream Town could not have been any better. I am a true believer that the person makes the company. Tammi Vetter creates the best image possible for Dream Town. She is responsive, respectful, and genuinely interested in her clients needs. She knew exactly what I wanted and did everything in her power to present my dream house. At times when I was tired of looking and getting ready to settle she made me persevere. She would not let me settle and ultimately I found my dream home.
Tammi, I can't thank you enough. I consider you a friend and a business partner.
Dream Town, you are lucky to have her.

Brian and Erica Armstrong
Amy from Dream Town was a great help in our search for a new condo. She made sure she knew what we were looking for and showed us only those homes. Once we decided on a place, she was very helpful in walking us through the process. Being first time buyers, it was nice to have somebody that was obviously very knowledgeable, show us the ropes. She gave us referrals on everything from lawyers to inspectors. I couldn't have been more pleased with the service we received. We will definitely use Amy and Dream Town the next time we move.
Brian and Erica Armstrong, Wrigleyville
You did a great job with everything and I can't thank you enough!!! :)

Rafael & Janet Angel
We had always heard that looking for a house was a complicated project, but thanks to Dream Town this was not the case. When we decided that we wanted to buy a house, we didn't know where to start, or where exactly to do our search. Basically, we tried different search engines; but no one offered us the tool options and the up-to-date information that Dream Town offered. Our agent was very professional, helpful, and communicative throughout the process. She was always on top of things and was always willing to help. Thanks to our professional and friendly realtor Maria and Dream Town, buying our first home was not as difficult as we thought it would be.
Rafael & Janet Angel, Brighton Park
was relieved by the calm assuredness of my sales cosultant Ting Sutana, that I would be walked through each step of the way in purchasing my first home. She was a great advocate on my side when arguing with prospective sellers what my needs were in buying a home. Ting went out of her way in showing me house after house and provided wonderful attractive properties to choose from online. I am very thankful to Ms. Sutana and Dream Town for the care and service they have provided me as a first time home buyer.
As I was a first time buyer, I was not sure of what I wanted, where I wanted it, nor what I would be able to afford. Nykea was extremely helpful, honest, and allowed me to make educated decisions on my own time. Due to my hectic six day work week the flexibility and understanding allowed for me to search for my new home stress free. My experience with Dreamtown has left me very impressed with the service and care taken. In addition to their kind and thorough service Dreamtown complements the purchase of your home with a thoughtful house warming gift consisting of bread, chocolate, and champagne. Thank you for your time and hard work.
Thank you soooo much Nykea! I am very happy with my purchase!
Ryan, Gold Coast
It was a pleasure working with Veronica to find my new home. We had a lot of laughs and a few disappointments (no fault of hers) along the way. Very early in the process she shared with the me the importance of, and the knowledge of, good buildings and good neighborhoods. It took me a while to figure out exactly where I wanted to live, and frankly, I didn't know exactly what I wanted. Her patience and good humor helped me shape the ideas that eventually got me in this great place. What was most impressive about Veronica is the amount of investment she showed me. I am not a high end buyer but I can't recall a time that she didn't call me back right away or be quickly ready to see some more properties. And when a deal fell through because of some shenanigans by the seller, I think she felt worse than I did! But quickly, she was able to locate a better place at a comparable price and a better mortgage rate! I would never hesitate to recommend Veronica to anyone looking for a home and if and when I want or need to sell mine, I'm calling Veronica!

Susie Kanter is a well-rounded woman who makes her clients a top priority. She is honest, knowledgeable, detail oriented, and thorough in everything she does. Her number one goal is to make sure her clients are happy and get the best home possible. Susie's professional expertise is unmatched and is essential when it comes to buying and selling a home in Chicago.
Marisa and Geoffrey, Lakeview
We worked with Susie on the sale of our condo, just as the market was beginning to slide. She met with us months in advance and provided us with excellent advice regarding the preparation of our unit so buyers could envision themselves living in our condo. Susie also provided us with ideas and resources including difficult but sensible counsel regarding our asking price. As a result, we were under contract just 15 days after we officially put our place on the market! Her services didn't end there — she was an excellent sounding board throughout the entire negotiation process and helped make the deal happen.
On the flip side, she was also very professional in helping us find our new home. She helped us sort through the various pros and cons of our options, and referred great professionals to us to help finalize the process (home inspector, lawyer, mortgage service, etc.).
Susie is not only very professional, she is personable and makes this very stressful process a lot more fun and manageable. And, it was certainly comforting to know that she was working in our best interest when orchestrating such an important personal investment.

As first time buyers we were overwhelmed by the process of buying our new home. Having no idea what question to ask, or where to even start — other than our needs for central air and parking — a colleague of ours recommended Susie Kanter to us. Susie did everything for us, from appropriately assessing what we could spend for a new home based on our income and identifying key growth neighborhoods to securing our mortgage team, inspector and property lawyer.
