Dave is extremely personable, which helps with the buying/selling process but also negotiations on the other end. I'll definitely be using him for future real estate deals.

Bucktown

Dave made what is one of the most stressful and intimidating purchasing decisions into one that was exciting and seamless. My husband and I knew what we were looking for in a home but needed help facilitating the search and buying process. Dave not only spent his time (4 months worth) showing us various properties, but he provided insight based on his experience as well which helped make the decision for the *perfect* house an easy one. He knew we were buyers that knew what we wanted and didn't push properties just to get the sale. His ability to read the situation and understand when to make suggestions or when to remain neutral assured me he had our best interests in mind. Another thing I particularly appreciated about his services was his honesty and his resources. Need a handyman? He's got a guy. Need someone for flooring? He's got a guy. His connections provided us with a closing attorney and a general handyman plus a few others for the future. Being first time home buyers he gave us so any tips on what to do to prepare (before, during and after closing) that I cannot thank him enough. My husband and I couldn't be happier that he was there by our side during the searching and purchasing process. He will be assisting my mom with her search now as well. Definitely recommend him!

Northbrook

So easy to work with. Babysat the whole deal, which was really needed. The sellers broker made everything difficult and the lawyers did too. Will definitely recommend to my family and friends.

Dave was patient and helpful; his knowledge of real estate in the area and his negotiating skills were some of the most helpful aspects of his service.

Park Ridge

Dave is a very knowledgeable and considerate agent. I worked with him since last year, starting with a short sale. He gave me lots of valuable suggestions. Also, he is a good negotiator. He was well organized for every house tour and planned the route very efficiently. I referred him to one of my best friends, and I strongly recommend him to new buyers. He could be a good agent to work with for your first home. Professional and friendly agent.

Schaumburg

Dave was instrumental in our search for a new home. He excels at understanding clients’ needs for a future home, handpicking the choices while at the same time being very realistic about the significant investment involved in buying a home. We had a very strict set of parameters for our future home. He understood and respected them, and worked very hard to get us a place that would be our home for many years to come. From day one to closing, he has been there for us. Due to our younger family members, my wife and I had a very busy schedule, and Dave was there to help us out. From previewing homes for us to being on-site for any inspections and/or follow up, Dave proactively looked out for out best interests at each and every step. In the end, we got both a great house and a lifelong friend. One is seldom so lucky, but we are and always will be thankful for Dave’s assistance. A rockstar agent!

Dave is so nice and full of patience. English is our second language, and Dave was very helpful when communicating with lawyers, other agents, and the homeowner's association. After we bought the house, which is so beautiful, he also helped me set up the accounts with the electricity, water, and gas companies. My family loves him so much. Highly recommend.

Being a first time home buyer was a very intimidating process; however Dave was incredible to work with. He was genuine, motivated, attentive and very accommodating, always ready to answer any questions we had. We had lots of parameters for home buying but Dave respected that and worked hard to find the home that was a perfect fit for us. Even during the negotiation and final closing process, he went above & beyond for our interest and got us an excellent deal!! He has a great team of people and contacts who are willing to help just as he is. He always treated us like his close friends & family and as a result today we have a trustworthy and great friend like him along with a beautiful house.

Working with Dave was a wonderful experience. He helped me find and purchase my dream home. My husband and I were casually looking for a new home. A friend referred me to Dave and on a whim I contacted him on a holiday weekend, he scheduled showings for the next day and I was in my new home in six weeks. I never could imagine purchasing a home could be so stress-free. Working with Dave was a sheer pleasure.

Arlington Heights

Dave completed a home sale for us with the highest level of professionalism. He listens, and he follows through, and communicates about all. We have known Dave for years and expected excellence. He exceeded that. Whether you are buying or selling, he ought to be your agent. We could not be happier. Thanks Dave!

Dave was recommended to us by a friend who had worked with Dave to sell his home. We were not disappointed! Dave was great to work with, communicative and responsive to our questions and attentive to our needs. He was eager to help us find places within our budget and parameters and was patient throughout. He went the extra mile in arranging showings for us and being available for us from beginning to end, even during some late nights! Dave was the consummate professional, helping us understand all our options and the entire homebuying process in detail, from end to end without any pressure. As clients, we felt that Dave heard and cared for all our concerns, no matter how seemingly small or seemingly inconsequential. I would highly recommend Dave for anyone seeking to sell or buy. He was more than just a realtor, but a friend who was helping us find a home! Thanks Dave!

Deerfield

Dave goes above and beyond on both sides (buying and selling) of real estate. He is quick to respond, listens to the desires of his clients, and helpful through the entire process. Dave was able to find us a house to buy in our desired area, then get our house on the market to sell in a quick turnaround. Because of Dave's diligent work, we won't have two mortgage payments. Thanks Dave!

Park Ridge

We were completely new and clueless to buying houses and Dave took the best care of us and made everything easy and seamless. He was completely responsive and personable. He made sure we knew exactly what was going on, he got the ball rolling right away, and he also had referred other people to use to help us. He made sure everyone was on the same page with everything. It ended up being a great team. Before long we owned our dream first home. None of this would have been possible had we not met Dave. He’s hardworking, he will will around your schedule for showings and to go over things, he will get back to you right away, and makes sure all t's are crossed and I's are dotted. I was already recommending him even before owning our home. You will not be let down in the home buying process.

Arlington Heights

Dave is awesome! I’d recommend him to family, friends and everyone buying or selling real estate. We were first time homeowners and his advice and recommendations made the process quick and easy. He’s simply the best and we couldn’t be happier! Thanks again Dave!

Arlington Heights

I really enjoyed my experience with Dave. I met him while looking at a home through a Zillow search. The home was not for me, but I ended up meeting an amazing realtor. Dave found me my dream home and went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. I had to do some construction on the new place and even though it was not part of his job as a realtor he helped me search for a contractor by calling them and setting up appointments for me. It was so helpful as I travel internationally for work. Once I found my new home, I had to sell my current home. Dave put it on the market and within 3 weeks I had an offer and he negotiated to the price that I was expecting. I highly recommend working with Dave if you are considering buying or selling. I will definitely recommend him to others and continue to use him in the future - although I hope to live in my beautiful home for a long time.

I would say that Dave was especially helpful in guiding us through the process of putting in an offer and the stressful time in-between having our offer accepted and closing on the property. He really was engaged with us the entire time and had the answer to every crazy question I had. I would recommend him to my family and friends in a heartbeat.

Bucktown

Dave has gone above and beyond what you would expect from a real estate agent. First assisting us from long distance while we chose which neighborhood to move to. Then took the time ahead of our trip to look at houses to plan a day long trip to over a dozen houses. He treats you like a friend and?looks out for your needs from the moment you hire him. He also is a strong advocate for your interests throughout the home buying process.

Expectations were properly set throughout the entire process, and communication was clear and concise between everyone involved.

Buffalo Grove

Dave was recommended to us by a friend and he was on top of everything right from the word go. We told him of our expectations, budget, preferred locations in great details and he very patiently listened and showed us listings which met our criteria the most.

We were working with a strict timeline and he ensured that we made the deadline and everything was completed by then. He explained the entire process, move-in tasks in great detail and would remind us of those tasks just to make sure our closing process would be as hassle free as possible. We both cannot thank you enough Dave. You were warm, understanding and extremely patient in dealing with us and we really appreciate that

Dave and Allison have been very knowledgeable and responsive during the whole process of selling our home, as well as the process of building our new home. There has never been a time that we haven’t been able to get a hold of them or they haven’t been able to answer any of our many questions. It’s extremely obvious that they have been in the real estate business for a long time. I believe they priced our home perfectly and that is why we were able to accept an offer on our home so quickly! I would definitely recommend The Blum Group to any friend or family in need of a professional real estate team.

We liked his personality so much that we chose him to represent us. He was really knowledgeable, helpful and really responsive to our questions during the entire process. He went the extra mile to work with the seller to ensure all of our concerns about items in the home inspection were addressed. He informed us with every steps of the process and gave his opinions when we needed, explained to us tasks that we should do during the closing, which made the process seamless and less stressful. Your help is really much appreciated, Dave. I would definitely recommend Dave to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

Dave was helpful in helping us understand the market and getting renters into our new property ASAP! As well as advising us on easy things for us to do to increase the aesthetic and value for potential renters.

Lakeview

Meeting Dave Blum was the answer to my prayers during a very difficult time. When my elderly parents passed away within weeks of each other, I was faced with the impossible; managing the sale of their home from where I live, 700 miles away. The house and two garages were packed with 60+ years of accumulated belongings. It was daunting. Dave and his lovely wife, Allison, promised to take care of everything - and they did. After providing me with excellent referrals for prompt and fair-priced professional services, they personally attended and supervised home repairs, the estate sale, multiple donation pick-ups and junk removal in my absence. Within two weeks of my departure, they had the house empty and sold before it even went on the market. From pricing to clean-out to sale negotiations, their advice and counsel was spot on every time. Knowledgeable, personable, efficient and hardworking, Dave and Allison led me through this difficult time seamlessly, and they kept me informed every step of the way. Not only are they awesome real estate agents, they are genuinely good people as well. I highly recommend Team Blum!

Norridge

Dave helped me find an apartment building. He sent me many listing and coordinated the showing for numerous buildings. He kept me informed and got back to me right away with answers to questions that I had. We made offers on a few of the buildings that we toured. He helped negotiate the terms on these buildings and helped negotiate the final terms on the building that I purchased. Dave was instrumental in the building that I purchased. I will continue to use Dave in the future to purchase other buildings.

Jefferson Park

Dave is extremely personable, which helps with the buying/selling process but also negotiations on the other end. I'll definitely be using him for future real estate deals.

Bucktown

Dave made what is one of the most stressful and intimidating purchasing decisions into one that was exciting and seamless. My husband and I knew what we were looking for in a home but needed help facilitating the search and buying process. Dave not only spent his time (4 months worth) showing us various properties, but he provided insight based on his experience as well which helped make the decision for the *perfect* house an easy one. He knew we were buyers that knew what we wanted and didn't push properties just to get the sale. His ability to read the situation and understand when to make suggestions or when to remain neutral assured me he had our best interests in mind. Another thing I particularly appreciated about his services was his honesty and his resources. Need a handyman? He's got a guy. Need someone for flooring? He's got a guy. His connections provided us with a closing attorney and a general handyman plus a few others for the future. Being first time home buyers he gave us so any tips on what to do to prepare (before, during and after closing) that I cannot thank him enough. My husband and I couldn't be happier that he was there by our side during the searching and purchasing process. He will be assisting my mom with her search now as well. Definitely recommend him!

Northbrook

So easy to work with. Babysat the whole deal, which was really needed. The sellers broker made everything difficult and the lawyers did too. Will definitely recommend to my family and friends.

Dave is very knowledgeable and is fun to work with. He was very accommodating and handled all of my requests. I would highly recommend working with him as your agent.

Arlington Heights

After meeting 3 other Realtors in our home search, we were lucky enough to meet Dave Blum. After meeting Dave, we decided to have him represent us in our search. In that period of time, which was more than a year, Dave remained patient with us, and in the end we found a home we loved. Dave is the best. Dave was patient and helpful; his knowledge of real estate in the area and his negotiating skills were some of the most helpful aspects of his service.

Park Ridge

Dave is a very knowledgeable and considerate agent. I worked with him since last year, starting with a short sale. He gave me lots of valuable suggestions. Also, he is a good negotiator. He was well organized for every house tour and planned the route very efficiently. I referred him to one of my best friends, and I strongly recommend him to new buyers. He could be a good agent to work with for your first home. Professional and friendly agent.

Schaumburg

Dave was instrumental in our search for a new home. He excels at understanding clients’ needs for a future home, handpicking the choices while at the same time being very realistic about the significant investment involved in buying a home. We had a very strict set of parameters for our future home. He understood and respected them, and worked very hard to get us a place that would be our home for many years to come. From day one to closing, he has been there for us. Due to our younger family members, my wife and I had a very busy schedule, and Dave was there to help us out. From previewing homes for us to being on-site for any inspections and/or follow up, Dave proactively looked out for out best interests at each and every step. In the end, we got both a great house and a lifelong friend. One is seldom so lucky, but we are and always will be thankful for Dave’s assistance. A rockstar agent!

Franklin Park

My wife and I recently worked with Dave to purchase our dream home (which is also our first house) in Des Plaines. Dave was very friendly while being very professional at the same time. Dave was truly a pleasure for both of us to work with. We would highly recommend Dave!

Dave is so nice and full of patience. English is our second language, and Dave was very helpful when communicating with lawyers, other agents, and the homeowner's association. After we bought the house, which is so beautiful, he also helped me set up the accounts with the electricity, water, and gas companies. My family loves him so much. Highly recommend.

Being a first time home buyer was a very intimidating process; however Dave was incredible to work with. He was genuine, motivated, attentive and very accommodating, always ready to answer any questions we had. We had lots of parameters for home buying but Dave respected that and worked hard to find the home that was a perfect fit for us. Even during the negotiation and final closing process, he went above & beyond for our interest and got us an excellent deal!! He has a great team of people and contacts who are willing to help just as he is. He always treated us like his close friends & family and as a result today we have a trustworthy and great friend like him along with a beautiful house. It was a pleasure to work with Dave and I highly recommend him!!

He has excellent knowledge about the area, many connections, and quick responses to my messages and questions. Very nice guy and helpful with the purchase of our first house.

Working with Dave was a wonderful experience. He helped me find and purchase my dream home. My husband and I were casually looking for a new home. A friend referred me to Dave and on a whim I contacted him on a holiday weekend, he scheduled showings for the next day and I was in my new home in six weeks. I never could imagine purchasing a home could be so stress-free. Working with Dave was a sheer pleasure.

Arlington Heights

Dave completed a home sale for us with the highest level of professionalism. He listens, and he follows through, and communicates about all. We have known Dave for years and expected excellence. He exceeded that. Whether you are buying or selling, he ought to be your agent. We could not be happier. Thanks Dave!

Glenview

Dave was absolutely wonderful to work with when we had to sell my husband’s childhood home. He turned a difficult situation into a positive experience. This was the first time we were selling a house and Dave patiently walked us through the process from start to finish. Dave is very knowledgeable, and he always responded promptly. We highly recommend Dave Blum!

Park Ridge

Dave was recommended to us by a friend who had worked with Dave to sell his home. We were not disappointed! Dave was great to work with, communicative and responsive to our questions and attentive to our needs. He was eager to help us find places within our budget and parameters and was patient throughout. He went the extra mile in arranging showings for us and being available for us from beginning to end, even during some late nights! Dave was the consummate professional, helping us understand all our options and the entire homebuying process in detail, from end to end without any pressure. As clients, we felt that Dave heard and cared for all our concerns, no matter how seemingly small or seemingly inconsequential. I would highly recommend Dave for anyone seeking to sell or buy. He was more than just a realtor, but a friend who was helping us find a home! Thanks Dave!

Deerfield

Dave goes above and beyond on both sides (buying and selling) of real estate. He is quick to respond, listens to the desires of his clients, and helpful through the entire process. Dave was able to find us a house to buy in our desired area, then get our house on the market to sell in a quick turnaround. Because of Dave's diligent work, we won't have two mortgage payments. Thanks Dave!

Park Ridge

We were completely new and clueless to buying houses and Dave took the best care of us and made everything easy and seamless. He was completely responsive and personable. He made sure we knew exactly what was going on, he got the ball rolling right away, and he also had referred other people to use to help us. He made sure everyone was on the same page with everything. It ended up being a great team. Before long we owned our dream first home. None of this would have been possible had we not met Dave. He’s hardworking, he will will around your schedule for showings and to go over things, he will get back to you right away, and makes sure all t's are crossed and I's are dotted. I was already recommending him even before owning our home. You will not be let down in the home buying process.

Arlington Heights

Dave is awesome! I’d recommend him to family, friends and everyone buying or selling real estate. We were first time homeowners and his advice and recommendations made the process quick and easy. He’s simply the best and we couldn’t be happier! Thanks again Dave!

Arlington Heights

I really enjoyed my experience with Dave. I met him while looking at a home through a Zillow search. The home was not for me, but I ended up meeting an amazing realtor. Dave found me my dream home and went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. I had to do some construction on the new place and even though it was not part of his job as a realtor he helped me search for a contractor by calling them and setting up appointments for me. It was so helpful as I travel internationally for work. Once I found my new home, I had to sell my current home. Dave put it on the market and within 3 weeks I had an offer and he negotiated to the price that I was expecting. I highly recommend working with Dave if you are considering buying or selling. I will definitely recommend him to others and continue to use him in the future - although I hope to live in my beautiful home for a long time.

Edison Park

Dave did an excellent job. He continued to ask how he could help and went above the call of duty. It was a hard time selling my mother’s house. But Dave made the whole process easier.

Dave was very prompt in responding to inquiries and scheduling appointments. He made sure to work around our busy schedules and get us in to see properties as soon as possible. I would say that Dave was especially helpful in guiding us through the process of putting in an offer and the stressful time in-between having our offer accepted and closing on the property. He really was engaged with us the entire time and had the answer to every crazy question I had. I would recommend him to my family and friends in a heartbeat.

Bucktown

Dave has gone above and beyond what you would expect from a real estate agent. First assisting us from long distance while we chose which neighborhood to move to. Then took the time ahead of our trip to look at houses to plan a day long trip to over a dozen houses. He treats you like a friend and?looks out for your needs from the moment you hire him. He also is a strong advocate for your interests throughout the home buying process.

Park Ridge

This was my Wife and I's first home and first time going through the home-buying process. From start to finish, Dave and his team were on top of everything that we needed to make buying our first home a smooth process. His entire team was responsive when answering questions, clear with their explanations, and very prompt. Expectations were properly set throughout the entire process, and communication was clear and concise between everyone involved. All of this created a relatively low-stress, exciting time while buying our first home. If you are looking for a personal connection and great people to work with, I cannot recommend Dave and his team enough. Thank you, Dave!!

Buffalo Grove

Dave was recommended to us by a friend and he was on top of everything right from the word go. We told him of our expectations, budget, preferred locations in great details and he very patiently listened and showed us listings which met our criteria the most. He would also give his opinion when we asked him to, which I think is rare. He cared for what we wanted and didn’t push us towards listings that we probably didn’t want to consider. We were working with a strict timeline and he ensured that we made the deadline and everything was completed by then. He explained the entire process, move-in tasks in great detail and would remind us of those tasks just to make sure our closing process would be as hassle free as possible. We both cannot thank you enough Dave. You were warm, understanding and extremely patient in dealing with us and we really appreciate that

Naperville

Dave was the selling agent of our current home, and we liked him so much that we hired him to sell one of our properties in Palatine. Dave goes above and beyond for his clients. He is extremely responsive and was spot on during the negotiation process. He cared about us getting the best deal possible, and his advice was very valuable throughout the process. Dave was fantastic at getting people in the door to look at our property. He held one open house after the other and made sure that we got the traffic needed to get our offer. My wife and I HIGHLY recommend Dave for any of your realty needs.

Park Ridge

Dave was highly recommended to us by a family member who purchased a home a couple of years ago. As first-time home buyers we didn’t know what to expect. We didn’t know what to look for or what to stay away from. We had lots of questions and wanted to see lots of options. Dave was professional, educated, answered all of our questions, and was super friendly. We are so thankful Dave was the one that led us through our first home purchase journey. Thank you Dave!

Dave and Allison have been very knowledgeable and responsive during the whole process of selling our home, as well as the process of building our new home. There has never been a time that we haven’t been able to get a hold of them or they haven’t been able to answer any of our many questions. It’s extremely obvious that they have been in the real estate business for a long time. I believe they priced our home perfectly and that is why we were able to accept an offer on our home so quickly! I would definitely recommend The Blum Group to any friend or family in need of a professional real estate team.

Jefferson Park

My parents are first time buyers. We had been on the home search journey for more than 3 months before we met Dave at the open house of our current house. We liked his personality so much that we chose him to represent us. He was really knowledgeable, helpful and really responsive to our questions during the entire process. He went the extra mile to work with the seller to ensure all of our concerns about items in the home inspection were addressed. He informed us with every steps of the process and gave his opinions when we needed, explained to us tasks that we should do during the closing, which made the process seamless and less stressful. Your help is really much appreciated, Dave. I would definitely recommend Dave to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

Jefferson Park

We worked with Dave on a property we were interested in as an investment. From the get go, he made us feel comfortable and went the extra mile on every aspect of the transaction which went like clock work. I would recommend him in an instant In fact, we will have him represent us when we sell our primary home one day in the future. Very pleased overall.

Park Ridge

Dave was helpful in helping us understand the market and getting renters into our new property ASAP! As well as advising us on easy things for us to do to increase the aesthetic and value for potential renters.

Lakeview

Meeting Dave Blum was the answer to my prayers during a very difficult time. When my elderly parents passed away within weeks of each other, I was faced with the impossible; managing the sale of their home from where I live, 700 miles away. The house and two garages were packed with 60+ years of accumulated belongings. It was daunting. Dave and his lovely wife, Allison, promised to take care of everything - and they did. After providing me with excellent referrals for prompt and fair-priced professional services, they personally attended and supervised home repairs, the estate sale, multiple donation pick-ups and junk removal in my absence. Within two weeks of my departure, they had the house empty and sold before it even went on the market. From pricing to clean-out to sale negotiations, their advice and counsel was spot on every time. Knowledgeable, personable, efficient and hardworking, Dave and Allison led me through this difficult time seamlessly, and they kept me informed every step of the way. Not only are they awesome real estate agents, they are genuinely good people as well. I highly recommend Team Blum!

Norridge
