Thank you so much for all you've done. From finding our new home to the final closing day, you answered every question we had and even took time on Christmas and Thanksgiving to talk to us. You truly delivered amazing customer service and made our first home buying experience smooth and successful. We have already recommended you to our friends.
Ryan May, Avondale
Meeting you was a pleasure, and working with you was a great experience. Since I wasn't sure which neighborhood I wanted to look in, I really appreciated the very organized manner in which you brought me to several areas and helped me focus on what would be most important to me. You really listened, and honestly discussed the pros & cons of each property specific to my needs. And you never pressured me, but instead continued to search without suggesting I compromise . . . and you stayed confident. While I recognized your professionalism from the beginning, I really came to appreciate it - being punctual, promptly returning calls, and always following up . . . in addition to respecting my schedule and stress level. Being new to this process, it was invaluable to work with someone I could trust with my thoughts, questions, and concerns from the first day looking at properties, to writing an offer and the closing, and even through moving in! It was a wonderful experience, and I'd highly recommend others to work with you.

Pedro and Greg
Working with Krista was a great experience so much so that we used her services twice within a year. She is always punctual, very organized and replies to messages promptly. She seems to know exactly what the buyer wants and does not waste time showing properties that do not have the criteria that the buyers set. She is not afraid to tell you that a particular property that you have seen online is not for you.

Bonnie has great instincts and knowledge of many neighborhoods in Chicago. She always kept our preferences in mind when looking at properties and she helped find the perfect place for us. Plus, she's tough. We're glad she was on our side. Thanks for everything!!!
I purchased a condo in Lakeview in March of 2008 and I have to say I would not have been able to go through this experience as a first time home buyer without my real estate agent Erika. She really made this very hectic transaction much easier. She's extremely knowledgeable, has a phenomenal work ethic and pretty much held my hand towards the end. (I sort of needed that. )
Jim and Ann LaPalermo
Bonnie Kirincic-Reyburn was our realtor for our recent condo purchase in the South Loop. Bonnie is fun and easy to work with. She is an excellent communicator and returns phone calls and emails immediately. She knows the market. She made a crazy process almost pain-free! We highly recommend her and would use her again for any future real estate needs.

Lei and Austin
As first time buyers, my husband and I had no clue where to start. Moshe helped us with the entire process, including home inspection, and he even gave us home renovation ideas! He showed us about a dozen condos on one weekend! Now it has been two months since we've settled into our new place, we couldn't be happier!
Lei and Austin, Des Plaines
George was extremely helpful with our search. He showed us a variety of places which helped make the decision on our place the right one. During the offer stage, George made us feel that we would get what we needed. He knew when and what to ask for from the seller. He even paid for our new home to be cleaned when the seller refused to pay. We never felt like George was selling us, but that he had our best interests in mind. This made the process much easier and I would recommend him to friend.
Jacinda Johnson, Irving Park
The buying experience went smoothly. It was obvious that you helped me proceed with great enthusiasm and caution. I found it particularly helpful the way you assisted in communicating with the staff at Century Tower. You paid close attention to the language that was used in the buying process and you made sure I knew what I was getting into. My only criticism comes from the first condo we viewed: I felt that your enthusiasm might have put too much of a positive spin on the place. After seeing the century tower location, the first location certainly no longer had its shine and the your positive comments suddenly seemed a little exaggerated. All in all it was a fine experience. Thank you.

Stephen and Janet Bouman
Working with Jan Medows was a terrific experience. She made the experience of moving from New York to Chicago not only easy, but fun. She showed us exactly what we were looking for. She treated us with dignity and was always patient. Jan was terrific and I would recommend her to anyone.
Beth and Alan Van Opstal
We had an outstanding experience with Dream Town and with Lynn Hawkins. As first time home buyers, we felt comfortable with Lynn, and knew that we could trust her. She went far beyond our expectations to help us find a home. She was extremely patient and helpful as well. We could not have made it through this process without her constant assistance and attentiveness. We are extremely happy with our new home, and would highly recommend Lynn to our family and friends.
Beth and Alan Van Opstal, Bridgeport
I would like to commend Vanessa on a great job assisting me with my condo purchase. It was extremely important for me to find someone that is easy to work with and that I could trust since it is my first condo purchase. That said Vanessa was extremely helpful and easy to work with. Most importantly, she was patient with me even though plans consistently changed. She never backed away or gave up. Her tenacity and determination to get me in a condo by the time I needed was refreshing. Honestly, if it weren't for her help, I would be renting again because of time issues. She went above and beyond. Far more than I would have even asked. Thus, I wanted to send this to you on her behalf. She is a great representation of Dream Town and I wouldn't hesitate to refer her to anyone.
Vanessa, I am very pleased with your professionalism, knowledge, patience and dedication to finding the right place for me. My requirements were fluid and you adapted to them with alacrity and enthusiasm. I could not have asked for a better representative. Many thanks and wishes for your continued success. I will recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell in the city.
She possessed exactly what I was looking for in a realtor: reliability, punctuality, and competence. It is really disturbing that finding a realtor with these traits can be a challenge. It was a pleasure working with Vanessa and my real estate purchase went very smoothly. A great formula for my OCD.
Gus and Nami
As first-time home buyers from out of state who knew next to nothing about Chicago and its five billion neighborhoods, we appreciated the look and feel of the informative Dream Town site, and absolutely loved Amy. She was randomly chosen to be our agent, and we can't tell you how lucky we feel for having landed her. She was unbelievably patient, tirelessly showing us place after place after place, making as much time as we needed and always fitting the viewings into our tight schedule. Not only was she knowledgeable and an invaluable source of advice in terms of what properties were worth, what their benefits and disadvantages were, she was just a lot of fun. She always had our interests at heart and found us a wonderful home. And when it came time to negotiate the price, Amy was fearless; she got us a deal we were more than pleased with. We're so happy in our new place, and we truly owe this happiness to Amy. She is a superstar, as an agent and as a human being, and we really can't recommend her highly enough. Thanks Amy!
Gus and Nami Rose, Andersonville
Ryan was incredibly professional and helpful. He answered all of my questions and made sure I felt comfortable in my new neighborhood. Searching for a new home can be extremely frustrating but having a liaison like Ryan made the process infinitely easier.
Old Irving Park
Emily worked tirelessly to answer all my questions and to force the sellers' agents to deal honestly. We searched every type of property imaginable from the single family home to the multi-unit bank owned foreclosure. If Emily didn't know the answer she found someone who did. I couldn't ask for more from a real estate professional. Emily will definitely be my choice for selling my property when the time comes.
Sarah Peck, Old Irving Park
As a first time home buyer, Terri was great! She walked me through the process step by step, and was very patient with all of my questions and concerns throughout the whole process. She was also very accessible - especially during the negotiation process through attorney review. I never had to worry about being able to reach her. I also appreciated that she took the time to really understand the type of place that I was looking for and to get to know my needs. That was particularly helpful when we lined up properties to see each weekend and narrowed down the search. We ended up finding the perfect condo for me! Thank you, Terri!
Genna, Wicker Park
Emily was incredibly instrumental in my search for a new home.
Ryan made the daunting task of finding a new home as painless as possible. He offered valuable advice, showed patience during the decision-making process and was there with me every step of the way.
Jennifer, Roscoe Village
Greg was wonderful! He was dependable, meticulous and knowledgeable. He made the whole process very easy and smooth! I recommend his greatly to anyone who is thinking of buying a home.
Dilek, Hyde Park
Rabi Lahiri and Thais Melo
Greg was a fantastic resource for our purchase in Chicago. We purchased this home as a second residence and conducted the entire transaction from Seattle after the initial showings. We also had some hiccups with our financing that caused our seller to get nervous and required a substantial amount of extra effort from Greg. Throughout the transaction he maintained excellent communication, presented us with accurate and timely information and made us comfortable that we had a strong advocate for our transaction. We
My experience with Jan was really positive. She was really nice and honest. The best part of my experience was that she was really responsive to my requests. If I needed help with something, I got a response really quickly.
Sabina, Lincoln Square
Meredith and Chris
Jennifer is definitely the type of realtor we needed in this uncertain, highly competitive market. When Chris and I decided to sell our condominium we thought that the process would be simple and that hiring an agent was a formality. However, after working with Jennifer for a short time, we realized that what we thought we knew only began to scratch the surface of buying and selling a property in Chicago. Her depth of knowledge and experience was invaluable to the process. For buying a new property, Jennifer tirelessly opened our eyes to different types of options and with a smile took it in stride when after we had together found the perfect two-flat we switched gears and began to look at single family homes.
For our selling process, Jennifer worked with us to present our condominium in the best possible light and even though our neighbor had been on the market with essentially the same unit for 8 months, she managed to attract potential buyers and make the sale. Chris and I are very appreciative to Jennifer for her hard work, her patience with us and our dogs (who sometimes did not help the selling process). We highly recommend her to anyone who needs a top-notch realtor as well as someone who actually makes this complicated, stressful process fun and manageable.
Meredith and Chris, Portage Park
Richard and Heather La Vigne
Moving and looking for a new place to live is never a process that either of us enjoy but upon meeting Ryan our search for a new home became less stressful and even enjoyable. Ryan listened to our requests and concerns and did a great job finding options for us that fit our lifestyle and our budget. Working with a realtor, like Ryan, that cared for and was in touch with our best interests really made for a very smooth transition into a new home.
Richard and Heather, Uptown
Michelle did a great job helping me find a condo. She always kept me up to date and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. I felt comfortable asking her about anything. Michelle knows her business very well and she knows what it takes to make her clients feel comfortable and satisfied with their purchase. I would recommend her to anybody interested in buying property and she is the only agent I will use in future property investments.

Crystal and Raymond Q.
Raymond and I wanted to say THANK YOU!! This entire home buying process was much easier than we both imagined! Marcia, you were a joy to work with. We felt like you understood what we were looking for, and guided us in the best direction. You were very friendly yet professional, flexible, responsive and understanding. These comments hold true for all of the individuals (attorney, lender & inspector) you referred to us.
Raymond and Crystal, Lakeview
I could not have asked for a better agent than Erika. From the very beginning of the entire process she gave me exactly the kind of advice that I needed. Not so much that I felt like she was telling me what to do, but enough to make sure that I stayed on the right path. I could not have gotten through my closing without her. With the unstable market conditions, I had a much more difficult time closing than we had originally anticipated. When I felt like no one else would give me straight answers, she was the one person who I knew I could depend on and who I knew I could trust. I feel extremely lucky to have worked with her, she is absolutely the best!
Myron, Rogers Park
Afif Marouf, M.d., M.P.H.
I would like to thank Ms. Arielle Turover most kindly for helping me to find the perfect property that fits my need and budget. Ms. Arielle Turover has excellent understanding of the customer needs and displayed a high degree of flexibility to my schedule. She is very patient and demonstrated an extremely high level of professional and caring conduct in dealing with my family and me. She provided us with an outstanding service and we are extremely satisfied. Thanks again Arielle.
Afif Marouf, M. d. , M. P. H. , Gold Coast
Arielle Turover of Dream Town was able to rent my condominium in less than a week. Her professionalism and prompt response was welcoming. I will definitely use Dream Town for future sales and rental.

Arleen and Ruchie Chadha
The best part about having Tom as our realtor was his professionalism coupled with his honest opinion and good humor. Balancing hectic schedules, it took us a while to make up our minds, but Tom was always patient and hung in there with us every step of the way. At the end, we got exactly what we wanted and like to think we made a friend along the way.
Arleen and Ruchie Chadha, South Loop
As a first time buyer with a limited budget, other realtors made me feel like I was wasting their time. Tom was very eager to help me and provide guidance that I badly needed. He always made himself available if I had questions and worked around my schedule. Tom made the whole first time buying experience enjoyable and less nerve-racking. I would recommend him to my family and friends.
Carla Coppage, Uptown
Tom Reeves was fantastic. His professional service made finding the right home at the right price easy. He was always on time and helped step me through the process. It's been 27 years since I needed to look for a home and so many things have changed. Tom's insight and assistance was invaluable.
Mike Joyce, Evanston
As a first-time home buyer, I was pretty clueless when it came to the entire process. Tom was referred to me by a friend who had purchased her first home through him and I'm very glad she did! With another agent, I may have felt intimidated when asking questions but Tom was always very thorough with his explanations without being patronizing. Buying a house for the first time can be stressful and unnerving but Tom's patience and commitment made me feel confident throughout.
Liz Rench, Berwyn
I want to express in writing my appreciation of your excellent service and diligent work you put in for the sale of my property in Glenview. You showed honesty and sincere concern in assisting me throughout the process. You are someone who can be trusted. I will definitely recommend you with pride and without hesitation to everyone.
Jack & Sue McKenzie
Jack and I want to thank you for all of your initiative in selling our condo. Because of the sheer number of condos on the market in our area, we were slightly pessimistic that we'd be able to sell in a short period of time. Also, because we had totally renovated our unit and our contractor did not complete the finishing touches as he should have, you did not hesitate to step in to ensure its completion. Not only were you able to bring in a number of clients, but you were able to secure the only one that mattered - an actual buyer. Among the other pluses in working with you were your prompt responses to our phone calls, your ability to answer all of our questions, your very pleasant personality and your willingness to 'hold our hands' throughout the entire process. We would enthusiastically recommend you to anyone searching for just the right realtor. Please don't hesitate to contact us. Again, a huge THANK YOU for all of your assistance.
Jack and Sue, Rogers Park
Shaneka and Darrell Alexander
Earlier this year my husband and I decided to purchase a bigger home for our family. We started researching properties online and selected a hand full of properties we thought would be perfect for our family. After communicating with a lot of online real estate agents we came across Nykea's bio and read all the testimonies from previous satisfied clients and we knew that we wanted her to represent us. We immediately contacted Nykea and informed her of what we needed and wanted in a new home. Initially, we presented to Nykea our hand picked list of homes. Nykea scheduled all the home viewings and accompanied us. Boy, I'll tell you we were glad to have a true professional on our side that had our best interest at hand. She was able to point out issues with the homes that would be a homeowner's nightmare. Because the homes we selected were not what we expected we were becoming a bit discouraged. We gave up searching for our perfect home ourselves and allowed Nykea to take complete control of our home search. After viewing several homes with Nykea she realized that not only were we looking for a home that would accommodate our family - we were looking for something unique, something different. Nykea put on her shades and said 'follow me'. We didn't know where we were going and finally we ended up in front of a home with a 'for sale' sign. Pessimistically we followed her inside the home. To our surprise, we were standing in the home of our dreams. Although the home was sold, Nykea was able to utilize her resources to find us a home that incorporated all the likings of this home and some. Although we moved into our new home 3 months ago, Nykea still calls us to make sure we are still completely satisfied with our new home. Thanks to Nykea, our family could not be anymore satisfied than what we are now. Nykea has made our dream of owning a perfect home come true.

We just wanted to thank you once again for all of your help both in finding our new house and selling our condo in this difficult market. We couldn't be happier with how everything worked out. We also wanted to provide you with some feedback on a few of the things we appreciated the most about the service you provided. Having been working for months on the purchase side, we were impressed by your consistent level of service, enthusiasm, and patience. As we had two inspections go very poorly before we found our place, it was great that our agent remained committed to getting us into a quality house and did not pressure us to move forward with a bad purchase. Throughout our many walkthroughs of potential houses you were able to provide commentary on design, construction, and potential hazards that I think exceeded the abilities of the average real estate agent. We'd also like to thank you for the great advice on the sell side to lock our bidder into an 'as is' deal. That move probably saved us a few thousand dollars or a potential lost deal in the end given the temperament of the buyers. Thanks again!
Drew and Amanda, La Grange Park
The idea of purchasing a home always seemed like an impossibility, little did I know that feeling was due to lack of information.
Shawn and Ryan Nofziger
We would HIGHLY recommend Eric to anyone!
Jo Ann Pinkerton
Being from North Carolina, my daughter and I knew nothing about Chicago. I told Eric I wanted a safe place for my daughter to live and close to public transportation since she wouldn't have a car while attending graduate school in Chicago. He found places exactly what we were wanting and exactly what I asked for in my price range. When we finally decided on the condo, Eric set us up with everything concerning the closing. Without his expertise, there's no telling what we could have gotten ourselves into! If and when we ever decide to sale the condo, Eric also will be our realtor then.
Jo Ann Pinkerton, Uptown
Dave assisted me in finding my current residence. He was very helpful in securing the property in the location I needed and the price range that was within my means. He returned my phone calls promptly and answered all of my questions. If there was something that he did not know or was not sure of, he promptly found the answers for me. I would recommend Dave to all of my family and friends.
Shawn, South Loop
I'll recommend Dream Town because Paco works there. Paco took me to see all the units that I wanted to see, even when other Realtors refused. He made recommendations and didn't sell to me. Throughout the process, he has been wonderful, always available to answer questions and address my concerns. Paco: many referrals to come.
It was fun working with Paco! I'm so tired of agents that only talk to me until they learn that I buy investment properties. All of a sudden, they don't answer the phone anymore. But Paco stayed with me and had my best interest in mind.
Kevin, South Shore
Paco, I really appreciate your quick replies and desire to help us in our search for a new home. I will most definitely recommend you to anyone I know who is also looking for a new home.
Robyn, Oak Park
Tom & Elizabeth
I would absolutely recommend Paco to others. Paco understood what we wanted, and made sure that we saw a wide range of opportunities. My fiancée and I work different hours, and Paco made himself available during brief windows of time to take us to see new opportunities.
Tom & Elizabeth, Itasca
Paco has a very disarming approach with his clients. As part of Dream Town, he truly puts a positive light on the company.
The best thing about buying my home is that I worked with Paco. He was fun and we had a good time going from place to place. Yes, of course, I'll recommend Paco to my friends!
Tom & Christine
Coming from out of town, we were unfamiliar with Chicago neighborhoods, but Jennifer was phenomenal in her knowledge of the luxury condominium market and what price points represent from one building to the next. Jennifer carefully planned and navigated our tour and was informative and professional throughout the process.
Tom and Christine, Gold Coast
Occasionally, if one is very fortunate, there can be someone very special that comes along at just the right moment in time who touches one's life in an important way that makes a significant difference. For me, such a person is Roni Miles. In the midst of shopping for a new residence, was the beginning of my fortunate, and remarkably satisfactory, experience of working with Roni Miles. Through our meetings together over the next days that followed, Roni, extended every effort on a business level, and personally, to find a way that would work, that was mutually satisfactory for the seller and for my co-owner and me to purchase the home of our choice. It is only through her well grounded business acuity, appropriately balanced by her warm person caring manner and connection, that I am now the delighted co-owner of my new home. Roni's ability to think creatively "out of the box", and to navigate successfully through uncharted territory, has resulted in a happy conclusion for all. I have expressed my gratitude and appreciation to Roni in person. Through this letter, I wish to convey how fortunate I think you are to have someone with Roni's unique and special gifts, working with you.
