Heather is a wonderfully personable, knowledgable agent, who consistently worked to provide us with listings that fit our wants and needs. She worked dilligently to get us into houses that were not only within our price range but also fit our strigent criteria regarding neighborhood and school system needs. Heather truly provided us with a 5-star experience, and I will definitely be recommending her and Dream Town's services to friends.
Thanks so much for everything! We had a great experience and found our dream home. Thanks for taking the time to help us become familiar with the different options so that when we found the right one we were ready to make the move. We don't plan on selling any time soon, but we'll be calling you again next time we move for sure! Megan & Jeff Hamilton
Emmanuel was knowledgable, efficient, and had great insight during my first-time home buying process. I'd highly reccommend Emmanuel to anyone g
Our experience working with Matthew was excellent in every way. Having worked with other real estate agents before, we were struck by how very personable and proficient Matthew is. He was always extremely efficient with returning phone calls and responding to emails. We appreciate his work ethic - he was always honest with us, gave us his well informed opinion, and never attended other calls or emails/texts when we were out viewing homes for sale. We especially appreciated his patience through the process. While we were seemingly undecided on where we wanted to live and how big of a home we wanted, Matthew always made us feel like he was working with us to find us a "home". Buying a home is a very personal and often emotional experience and having Matthew as our real estate agent made things very pleasant and smooth for us right from when we started looking up until closing day. He even followed up with us a week after the sale and helped us provide our building with additional documentation they needed. We recommend him to all our friends and family who are in the market looking to buy/sell homes.
Brian is the epitomy of professionalism. He made my home buying process a breeze. This was a first time home buying experience and i could not of imagined a smoother process. Brians knowledge and industry experience is hands down his greatest assest. I was comfortable the entire time from meeting, to showings, to the closing. He was always there when i needed him at any step in the buying process. I have and will continue to recommend Brian to anyone i know looking to purchase a home. He is an incredible asset to any organization he is working for. Hands down the best realtor i have ever worked with.
Mike and Sarah were extremely helpful in helping my wife and I find a home. I truly feel like they helped us find our "Dream" home. I have had an earlier experience with another realtor who was pushy in trying to rid of a property, which clearly was a poor investment. Mike and Sarah were professional and always looked after our interests, not their own or someone elses. They were honest, patient, and willing to do everything in their power to get us the home we wanted. It is because of this honesty and hard work that I will always recommend Mike and Sarah to my friends and family, even though i know many realtors.
Diana was very informative always responded incredibly fast. Additionally, she truly worked diligently on our behalf to represent our needs. As a first-time home buyer, this was very much appreciated.
I really enjoyed woking with Patricia. She was not pushy yet got back to me within minutes each time I texted or called. A nice balance.
She was very straightforward with what to expect from a market perspective. She had alot of knowledge and pointed out features and potential issues about some of the homes when we were touring them. She knew what we were looking for and ultimately suggested we see a home that we didn't have on our list and ultimately purchased! I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Thomas had worked on an investment property for my partner a few years prior. So when we decided it was time to expand to a simgle family home in the city, he was the first person we thought of. He spent many weekends over the next 5 months working to learn the differences between our needs & our preferences . . . and did so quite well. He demonstrated a great deal of patience and applied the right amount of pressure when it was necessary. Five months and countless houses later, we bought the very first house he showed us. Thomas was excellent to work with, and also continued on to help me sell a highrise condo in just under 12 weeks. At a time when there were many other units availble in my building, I was very happy with the result.

We have high expectations, and Beverly exceeds them. She always has time for us and makes us feel like we are her only client. She attends showings and actually helps sell the property, and she did it for less than others (5%) - that was very different from our experience with other agents that want 6% for essentially just listing the property and acting as a middle-man once an offer is made.
Jae was absolutely the perfect agent for our search to buy our next home. His quantitative and analytic approach helped me understand the market conditions, while his real estate development experience helped my wife build a vision for our next home. Jae was also a valuable resource throughout the entire process - from finding properties all the way to closing. After gaining a thorough understanding of what we wanted in a home, he moved quickly to identify listings and set up showings. Once we were ready to submit an offer, Jae was a shrewd negotiator - getting our home at a lower $/sqft than all other comparables and providing us with instant equity. During the inspection, Jae's experience in RE development was a vital asset; he identified several major and minor issues, and then helped us negotiate a more than adequate closing credit for the repairs. Even after inspection and at closing, Jae was always very responsive and provided support whenever we needed. We could not be happier with Jae as our real estate agent, and we definitely plan on working with him again in the future.
Yogi was a terrific help in assisting our sale and closing Thank you Yogi
Mike was a pleasure to work with. Completely professional, attentive, knowledgeable, prompt and a great resource for our first home purchase.
Beverly was fantastic to work with. We had a few false starts and it felt like we would never find a place. Beverly was a consummate professional and went through dozens of houses with us until we found the right one. She always had our best interests in mind and made this whole experience educational and fun. Thank You Beverly!
Mike was a superb real estate agent. He was very supportive and informative throughout the process. He provided all information needed promptly and was readily available to help. We never felt any pressure from him throughout the process, it was a big decision for us and he provided the information needed to make sure we were comfortably making the right decision. We're thrilled with the place he found us.
We used Mike and Sarah to short sell our condo and purchase a short sale house. They went above and beyond for us, making everything simple and painless. They did all of the work during the entire process, they even provided us with an amazing financing contact who took care of our financing for us on our home purchase. We've dealt with other realtors, and we've heard some rough stories about other realtors. Mike and Sarah are exceptional at what they do, which is unfortunately the exception rather than the rule when it comes to realtors. They are the cream of the crop, you can't go wrong.
Stephanie was professional, comprehensive and patient! it was a joy working with her!
Susan has assisted me with selling and buying a number of homes and has provided great service, expertise, detailed background and extremely hard work and dedication.

After working with other realtors for my first-time home-buying experience I remained unimpressed with anyone's business-savvy (and knowledge of city-employee discounts) until working with Gordon. He's confident, smart, knowledgeable of the market, pro-actively gets information, and got me the deal of the century right on the lake. He goes the extra mile in a complex market. He also works with really good people on the lender-side; VERY important for consultants to have good relationships with the network of people you'll work with. Personally, he's witty and hip, listened to what I wanted, advised constructively and without ego. Good experience all-around - I'd call him again.

Kyle & Stephanie
Kyle and I are very excited about our new property and appreciate Dana's guidance through the process. Dana is knowledgeable, helpful and always available to take our calls and questions. Being first time home owners, you can say we were a bit "needy". Dana was very understanding of our situation and provided us great direction and referrals. We are looking forward to finally moving into our condo and we will definitely recommend Dana when friends or family are in need of a real estate agent for their home buying adventure. On top of the fact that Dana is great at what she does, Dana is nice, understanding and an all around good person. Thank you Dana!
Kyle & Stephanie, Gold Coast
We worked with Stephanie to purchase a multi-unit building in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago in 2012. As first time buyers we were a little nervous and not quite sure what to expect, but Stephanie guided us through the process with professionalism and patience. We found her to be an enthusiastic and competent advocate on our behalf throughout the purchase and wouldn’t hesitate to use her again in the future. Sincerely, Mark Kennedy
It was a pleasure to work with you on our condo search this summer. I was satisfied with the help you gave me in finding a condo that met our needs and working our way through the negotiation process. The transaction from beginning to end was handled with the utmost of professionalism. I would recommend your services (and Dream Town) to anyone looking for property in the Chicago area.
Len J. , East Village
I would like to thank you for assisting my family in finding our dream home. Although we were first looking for a town home your diligence in searching properties in our area found us the single family home we have dreamt about at a price that was in our budget. I will never understand how you were able to get the price down to where we were comfortable with but you have our gratitude. As soon as our old house is ready for sale rest assured you will be our agent again. Thanks from the Poe Family.
Edna Poe, Homewood
I am a very picky person and Dream Town helped me find a fantastic place that I really love. My agent, Rachel, was very knowledgeable about the city, and she was always prepared for our visits. She worked very hard between our showings and was constantly in touch with me about my thoughts and with new ideas.
What I really liked was that she would send me emails with links to various properties on the web and in her real estate database so I could preview apartments on-line before going out to see them. This saved a lot of time and ensured that I was only visiting the places that truly had potential.
Rachel found me a great place, and I'm very thankful to her and Dream Town for all their help and advice.

Maria and Ibrahim
Ever since our first telephone conversation from New Jersey, you were indefatigable in trying to find the right place according to our needs. Finally when we were able to visit Chicago you presented us with various possibilities and your choices were phenomenal, however, there was one place that in our view and hearts was better than the others and you help us enormously in the process of presenting our offer, getting legal representation,etc., After various trials and tribulations you conveyed our final offer which was accepted. We want to thank you profusely for an excellent job in our behalf. You helped us find our "dream condo" that we expect to enjoy in these our golden years. Best regards.

Mike helped us find and purchase our first house. He was beyond helpful, responsive, and patient throughout the entire house-hunting process. He went above and beyond to answer questions and put our minds at ease throughout the time we worked with him. He's a great guy who we enjoyed spending time with as well. We would recommend him without reservation.

Cathy was the perfect real estate agent for me and my wife. She quickly grasped what we were looking for in a new home and isolated properties that fit the bill. When it came time to finalize an offer and secure the mortgage, Cathy was extremely helpful and supportive throughout the process. Having moved into our new home, we are now in the process of selling our previous residence in which Cathy was instrumental in finding a buyer and walking us through the process. All that said, I highly recommend Cathy Scratch.....she's great to work with and you'll be very happy with the results.

Ty and Meegan Beckmann
Heather's greatest skill is the close...and I have to say it is one of the most important. In that crucible, so much can change so quickly, you need a knowledgeable and skilled person on your side to navigate the turbulence. Heather has a grasp of what's real in the market, a knack for communicating with all types of agents, and a follow-through to get it done (not to mention the ability to soothe clients who are anxious with the challenges faced in a complex deal). She keeps the deal going and fights for what you need and what is best for you.
Ty and Meegan Beckmann, Bucktown
Rating: 4 Mike was very patient with me and my ignorance with city/condo buying. He took the time to educate me and I appreciated that the most. Not only did I land a great new home, I feel like I executed a smart transaction because of the knowledge he gave me! Jodi Akers
Carol was able to find me a condo that I wanted and within my price range.She was very helpful through out the process.I rate her at 4.Thanks Carol
Lauren: I believe your strength is a keen knowledge of the market from neighborhood to neighborhood, and of the buying process from soup to nuts. Working with you is like having a great tour guide in a foreign country. I look forward to working with you again.
Ramona was extremely helpful in helping me find a rental property. She was patient while I sorted through issues related to the cross border move. Once I got here she found several properties that fit my needs. I ended up in a place that so far has made me very happy.
Mike was very helpful, on time, and condsiderate of my time- that is much appreciated!
Great communication and responsiveness. Beverly provided frequent buyer activity summaries and feedback from showings.
Tunisha and Rossan
Rossan and I would like show our deepest gratitude for all of your dedication and hardwork you put into finding our new home. There was never a day or time that you weren't there to answer questions or concerns of ours. Your education and knowledge of the real estate industry was very helpful in helping us get over all of the hurdles and difficulties of purchasing a property. Thanks also for your positive and driven attitude at all times. You've been a great Realtor and friend, thanks so much! I would recommend you to anyone looking for a Realtor that never gives up on their clients dream home!

If someone asked me to describe Tokela Brown, I would have to say she is Reliable, Resourceful, Hardworking but most of all she is a Super-Agent. When I met Ms. Brown, my home had been on the market way to long, I had an absentee agent and my foreclosure date was fast approaching. I was stressed beyond belief and was sure the bank would take my home and I would end up owing an insurmountable amount of money. I cancelled my contract with my original listing agent and signed with Tokela. She came out the gate running. She marketed my home as a Short Sale. At the time I didn't know we could do that. My other agent hadn't explained all my options. Ms. Brown took the time out to explain what we needed to do and it all made sense. I went with her advice and the wonderful attorney she recommended to me. She kept me informed every step of the way. In about a month after she took over my listing, we had a signed contract. Next was tackling the other beast, the bank. At this point, the attorney Tokela recommended to me stepped in. This attorney worked diligently on my behalf. Between her and Ms. Brown, I felt like their only client. They always had time for my questions and concerns. Not one phone call went unreturned. My case was not an easy one, but they never wavered in helping me sell my home and avoid foreclosure. So many agents at that time turned away from such cases, but not Tokela. She was my virtual army of one. My home closed a day before it went on the auction block. I owed the bank nothing because of the excellent negotiating skills. I can never repay them for what they did for me in those months. They never let me feel ashamed that my home was in foreclosure. Tokela came in, took the reins and headed out to find a solution to my problem. She never allowed me to worry. She was so positive in everything. She set out to sell my home and avoid foreclosure and that is exactly what she did. I would recommend her to anyone. If someone is looking for an honest, reliable, straightforward, positive, hardworking agent; then Tokela Brown will always be your go to person.

Veronica helped my husband and I purchase our condo in the spring of 2009. We were early in our home search and hadn't chosen an agent, when we met Veronica at a condo we were viewing. We knew immediately that, although that home wasn't the place for us, Veronica was definitely our agent. She has an excellent knowledge of Chicago and worked very hard to help us find our home. She listened to what we were looking for, showed us great properties, and gave us very honest opinions about the homes. Once we found our condo, she saw us through the whole process, pulling hard for all of the things we wanted. She truly cares about our family and, though home buying is always a bit stressful, working with her was fun! We would use her again and definitely recommend her. We are thrilled with our condo.

What a delight to house hunt with Veronica Miklusicak! Not only did we find a perfect condo, but we had fun doing it. Veronica is indefatigable and very well informed. She negotiated the rough waters of a short sale, and taught her customers what to look for and what to avoid. She wanted us to buy well, not just "BUY!" She valiantly undertook the study of the new and constantly changing rules for borrowers, and helped us keep the faith when every lender constructed hurdles for us to jump. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new home in Chicago.
Professor Lorraine Schmall, Lincoln Park
I just wanted to let you know that you really are fantastic at what you do... you are the reason I am moving into the home I have wanted since I was young.I appreciate you not letting me stray from my goal! ...you are the Man... (for lack of a better term Dude!)
I have been a client of Ted Krzysztofiak for the last 5 years and have purchased a number of properties, including my home and a few rental income properties.
Christian & Maharba Sanchez
Ted's positive attitude, knowledge and dedication to helping us find the right home made him the right choice for us. He went above and beyond our expectations as a real estate agent. As long as Ted is an agent, we will always go to him first with questions or opportunities and refer our family and friends to him.
Beth and Paul Fitzpatrick
Ted has helped us purchase and sell properties in the Chicago land area. His knowledge and expertise enabled us to make very sound and beneficial decisions. Ted immediately had an innate sense of exactly the kind of property and neighborhood we were looking for. Finding someone who gets that right off the bat is a huge time saver. We will definitely use Ted in the future for both selling and purchasing our properties.
Beth and Paul Fitzpatrick
Nick was great! He found me the right property, wonderful financing, and an excellent closing staff. I'd recommend him very highly.
