We knew Aaron would be a great agent since he came highly recommended to us. He met and exceeded our expectations. As first-time homebuyers, Aaron patiently walked us through the process and listened to us to pinpoint exactly what we were looking for in a home. He was quick to get more information about listings and always followed up promptly to our questions. We knew he was looking out for us every step of the way, and now we are so happy in our new home!
Aaron was so helpful and gave us the best advice, which helped us buy a house in a very difficult market. We're so grateful! We said several times throughout the process, "We have such a good realtor!"
What a pleasure it was to work with Aaron. He responded promptly, from our first email inquiring about starting a condo search in Evanston, up to and including several questions we had about the area after we purchased our condo and moved in. He was always courteous, professional and personable. He was prompt and well prepared for each meeting we had. He was extremely knowledgeable about both real estate in general and the Evanston area in particular. We would highly recommend him to friends and family.
Aaron is extremely knowledgeable, communicates promptly and effectively, and always goes to bat for our interests. He expertly guided us through every step of both selling and buying a home. He was by far the best realtor we have ever worked with.
Aaron aligns quickly to support individual client needs. Provides strong real estate market knowledge and identifies awesome houses to consider for showings. Thanks for your patience during a crazy time in the housing market.
Aaron is so easy to work with! He know the area well and is very efficient. My house was sold faster than I thought possible!
Aaron is a highly professional and righteous dude. He went above and beyond to help us understand our first home-buying process. He was with us every step of the way to provide guidance and advocacy and even answered questions we wouldn't have thought to ask.
Aaron was a great partner for us - throughout the process. He understood what we were looking for and ultimately helped us find the home we wanted. He and I had conversations that helped me feel reassured when that was what I needed, or encouraged that we would find our home when another one didn't happen. He brought in a team of pro's who were exceptional at their respective areas of support - namely an inspector who helped me get to know everything I needed to know about the home and more, and an attorney who was attentive to detail, a good negotiating partner and excellent at the close. I highly recommend Aaron and appreciate his support....I thoroughly enjoyed working with you, Aaron. Thank you!
Working with Aaron was a fantastic. After initially speaking with him, I knew he was the right person to help me search for a home. He was very informative of the area I looking at - Skokie. Whether it was text or email, he was quick to respond... very helpful for a first time buyer! No question was too small! I had some luck go my way but Aaron’s guidance helped me land my home which had multiple offers. From initial bid to closing and after, Aaron was on top of contacting all parties involved to help keep things moving as smoothly as possible. He’s friendly but also a professional. Can’t recommend him enough!
Realtor Aaron Masliansky was recommended to me by friends who valued both his experience and his qualities as a human being. He worked simultaneously with me and my daughter's family for 6 months to sell each of our houses and to find another house suitable for combining our two households. Aaron proved to be extraordinarily responsive, answering calls and e-mail messages at all times of the day and night, successfully organizing house tours on remarkably short notice, and paying careful attention to our slowly evolving notions of what we wanted. He was very patient and unfailingly good humored with our endless questions and concerns about the whole process. Intimately familiar with Chicago and its northern suburbs, he is well connected to people in the building trades and forthcoming with recommendations for service providers. The advice provided by Aaron for staging our homes proved useful, as did his marketing strategy, high production values, and negotiating skill. He truly relishes the process of getting the best price for his client, whether in buying or selling, but tempers that enthusiasm with his insight and astute observation both of current market conditions and his opponent's psychological state. Both our houses sold in a short time (one week in my case).
Aaron is the best of the best! Aaron was a true professional and delight to work with. He sold our house during a Pandemic and was cool, calm and collected. Aaron 100% had our best interest in mind and did everything he could to get our house sold. I wish he had known him when we bought our house five years ago. Thank you, Aaron!
Aaron recently sold my daughter's condo. From start to finish I was pleased that she chose Aaron to help her on this journey. Aaron included me in all correspondence and calls at my daughter's request of course. He patiently answered every question giving his point of view, but allowing my daughter to make all decisions along the way. What I haven't mentioned is that I was a successful realtor before I retired, although in a different country. Aaron thought of everything and I'd be pleased to recommend him should I have the chance!
Aaron was great to work with, and able to adapt to the complexities of working with me while I was living overseas, and then during the first months of the pandemic. He managed the process of pre-sale renovations and kept things moving smoothly.
A pleasure to work with, handles every detail and makes process as easy as possible for client, extremely professional.
Aaron helped us recently find and purchase our new home! We found the house we wanted to look at while Aaron was out of the country- he was making calls and arranging showings so we could see the home right away even while he was in flight. I couldn’t be more impressed with Aaron. Buying a home can be a hectic process, but he helped us feel at ease every step of the way. Aaron was super responsive which is also very important to us. He was extremely knowledgeable and made sure to get everything done immediately for us. I would highly recommend Aaron, he is the best in the industry!
I put it out there on my social media that I needed a real estate agent for my home search in Skokie and Evanston and the name that kept coming up was Aaron. From the first phone call, to the meeting, the showings, negotiations and the closing, Aaron was the consummate professional. Really 5 stars for market knowledge on Skokie and Evanston does not do him justice. He knows the community, he understands the community and he is part of the community. He was extremely responsive and did what it took to get the deal done even on a weekend after any kind of reasonable working hours. He adapted his way of handling things to fit our way of looking and buying so I am sure he is a fit for most. If you are looking to move to Skevenston, talk to Aaron.
Aaron could not have been kinder in walking my fiancee and I through the home-buying process. He had, or knew how to quickly find, an answer to every question we had and was relentlessly patient with us. He let us make our own decisions without imposing his will or any pressure on us, even though he knew we had a tight timeline. I work in the real estate law field and work with hundreds of agents, working with Aaron was a no-brainer for me. My fiancee and I both knew and felt like we were in good hands the whole time. Aaron is a gold standard for what real estate agents should be.
Aaron is a fantastic real estate agent. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient, hard working and responsive, and is always enjoyable to interact with. As first-time home buyers we had a lot of questions, and Aaron was always there with answers and guidance. He is very reliable, and his expertise is impressive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him as an agent.
Aaron was very receptive to our needs and budget, and worked with us to get the house we were looking for. He was very helpful explaining the process, taking time to assist with issues and basic steps that were unfamiliar to us. Had a very professional but friendly attitude and worked well with us and the sellers team.
Aaron was extremely good at marketing our house, it sold in 13 days. I would definitely recommend him to someone selling their house.
Your representation was superb. Your honesty and knowledge of the market, and commitment to your client, could not have been more outstanding.
Aaron is a top notch realtor. He knows the market inside and out, made our search a priority, was an expert on everything from the smallest detail to the larger picture and served as our advocate. He also has a really nice way about him and gets the job done while getting along well with everyone. I felt like I was in good hands through the whole process and in the end, he helped us find the perfect home for us. I strongly recommend him.
Aaron did a fantastic job to help us sell our condo. He knows the market very well and knows about the building. He was very quick and very patient to help us with the process. He not only guided us what needs to be done also provided a lot of resources to make sure things are done on time. We couldn't have close the deal without his help.
Aaron was amazing. Responsive, knowledgeable, proactive, and available every step of my home selling and buying process. I can't recommend Aaron highly enough.
Aaron is a class act! We could not have been more satisfied.
Aaron, you did an awesome job! You knew what needed to be done, had resources to accomplish the tasks, returned phone calls and emails quickly, handled negotiations for me, and are highly ethical. My experience was fantastic.
In a nutshell, Aaron provided me with top notch service in selling my condo in Evanston and I would recommend his services to anyone. It was a very complex transaction due to the existence of potential issues with the initial design of the building, and an ongoing lawsuit between the condo association and the developer. Aaron was extremely prompt and knowledgeable in addressing any questions I had; seamlessly worked with the buyer's agents, the attorneys, and other parties; and provided excellent and honest advice. He made what good have been a stressful and frustrating process a pleasant experience.
To Aaron Masliansky, 5 stars The sale of the house feels like a miracle! Thank you, Aaron, for getting it sold. We were blown away to have an offer immediately! Thank you! So very happy to have you as our agent!!! Terry Jenkins & Janice M Jenkins
Aaron Masliansky handled the sale of our condo and thanks to his expertise, knowledge and willingness to help with every detail we successfully sold our condo quickly and at a good price. He had great suggestions and we especially appreciated his attorney referral.
I am a licensed agent and I decided to move my family from Chicago to San Diego. I had a beautiful home in Skokie that I needed to sell, but I knew that the home would be a challenge. The home was fully renovated and showed really well, but it was too large and updated for the neighborhood (ie. over-developed). I considered selling it myself, but also interviewed several Realtors as well. As a Realtor with 20 years of experience, I had high expectations of any Realtor that would market my personal home, and I also definitely had opinions. That would place me in the high maintenance category. During the interview process, Aaron absolutely stood out from the crowd. He is authentic, sincere, professional, and ethical. Put simply, he's a good guy. As expected, the marketing of my home was not an easy task. There were many complications and curveballs during the process. While none of the complications was of Aaron's doing, he never got tired or showed frustration in moving us along to the end line. To make it even harder, I had already moved to California and left the house empty. Aaron routinely stopped by the house to make sure that everything was ok. As I mentioned, I had very high expectations of any agent that would represent me, but Aaron blew my expectations out of the water. It is without any reservation that I recommend Aaron to market your home, whether it is a cozy condo or a luxury single family home.
Aaron was great from the beginning through our move. He helped us get ready for the pictures, and some of the showings. He was proactive in finding buyers for our old home, and reassuring when our sellers were being stubborn. He was even willing to show us a house after we bought our new house, just to satisfy our curiosity! I can't say enough about how great a realtor Aaron is, and my mother was a realtor (and so were some of her friends, and her brother). He went over and above what most of them would have done.
We used Aaron for both the sale of our home and purchase of new property. Doing those things at the same time can be a stressful ordeal but Aaron ensured that it went as smoothly as possible. He has a vast knowledge base about the industry, and is perhaps the most "up to date" realtor that exists: he leverages all new technologies which make the process more enjoyable. Aaron is a thoughtful and hard working agent who really tries to ensure that the client is happy at the end of the day.
Here are just a few adjectives and phrases that describe Aaron: Dynamic; personable; respectful; knowledgeable; professional; man of his word; keeps track of every little detail to make sure the process of selling ones; caring; makes you feel like you are a member of his family with the concern he shows. Having been a real estate broker and appraiser, I understand marketing. Gave me helpful types on preparing my home prior to listing. His market analysis was complete and accurate. The listing and advertising along with pictures was great. Aaron kept me informed on the reaction of all potential purchasers and their agents. No detail was too small or large for Aaron to handle smoothly and intelligently. I highly recommend Aaron. Gratefully, Carol Tatarowicz
I was selling my rental property remotely, and Aaron took care of absolutely everything-from painting contractors to rug cleaners and appliance repair folks. Aaron is a realtor you can trust completely.
Aaron is phenomenal. He took so much time with us and really listened to our needs. He made a dream become a reality! We started looking at real estate over a year before really deciding where we wanted to lice and what we could afford. Aaron was so patient with us and helped us with every step along the way! Thanks to Aaron we have our forever home.
Aaron is an amazing agent. He is incredibly knowledgeable about housing markets, market trends and houses and buildings of all shapes and sizes. He constantly went out of his way to go the extra mile to help both the buyer and the seller. Aaron helped found us our dream home.
Would never use anyone else!
Aaron feels like a true partner in real estate transactions. I always feel like he's working hard for us.
My sister and I were very happy with our real estate agent Aaron Masliansky. Aaron was very professional, knowledgeable, patient and trustworthy. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. Matter of fact we are going to reach out to him with additional future real estate transactions. You can't go wrong with Aaron as your agent.
Aaron helped my Mom with a condo purchase in Evanston. She relocated from Vermont, so this was a huge change for her! Aaron was always available, patient, positive, and knowledgable. But more than that, he is a local person who knows and cares about the community. He's now our friend and neighbor! He always listened to us and took every question and concern seriously. He is extremely professional, but also warm and caring. We will never hesitate to refer friends to Aaron in the future. Thank you!!
I worked with Aaron to buy a house and I have to say, I am unbelievably impressed with him. I have worked with many other brokers and Aaron was a cut above the rest. Aaron was always available to answer any questions, he was extremely knowledgeable and he truly helped me in every way possible. Without any doubt whatsoever, I truly believe anyone would be in great hands having Aaron help you sell or buy a home.
Aaron was fantastic in helping us throughout the entire home purchase process! He was knowledgeable and very responsive. He really brought the expertise we needed in buying our first home.
Aaron is a professional and is a pleasure to deal with. He always responded to calls or emails in a very timely manner. If I wanted to see a property, he showed it to me within a day or two. He advocated on my behalf through a tough short-sale which fell through, and then his sharp eyes found issues in another contract which, thanks to him, we were able to resolve. His friendly, positive, upbeat personality despite trying circumstances are no less important than his deep knowledge of homes and neighborhoods.
Aaron was the perfect person to help with purchasing this property that was in short sale. He was committed to our satisfaction, making himself available for showings, advice, working with the seller’s agent, and giving us a reference to an attorney with expertise in buying this type of property. We were able to close the purchase in timely fashion, confident that Aaron was looking out for our best interests throughout the process. It was pleasure to work with him.
Aaron did a great job helping us find our home. He worked tirelessly and was always available. Particularly helpful were his reports on houses, comparing their value to comparable others in the area.
We highly recommend Aaron! We were able to buy our home due to his preparedness and quick action. He knew what we wanted, and was ready to show it to us within an hour of it becoming available. He is extremely professional and thoughtful, and it was really a pleasure working with him. Thank you so much, Aaron!
Over the past year Aaron has aided me in property search. After pursing several properties on which we could not come to terms, Aaron presented me with a foreclosure he had walked through (after listening to my desires he found something that was a fit). Aaron helped me work through and negotiate with Fannie Mae to get a great deal on a property. Aaron’s counsel was very valuable as he advised me of some of the pitfalls to be aware throughout the process. Last once I owned the property, Aaron helped me rent it. Let me say, having Aaron to help with the rental process was priceless.
Aaron is a great agent far beyond our expectation! We were looking for a relative small investment condo property, and did not know him before. He showed his expertise, attention to detail , flexibility and hard work that quickly built the trust. During our lengthy short sale approval process, he had been the communication lead among agents, attorneys,mortgage agents, and us. He thinks ahead and always represents in our best interests without losing fairness, which I believe rarely found and important for us, and I am quite sure for most clients as well. He is also very tech savvy, and surprised us with many new Apps and services making paperwork signing and documentations painlessly.
As a long-time Chicago resident, Aaron was very knowledgable of the different areas of Chicagoland. We had him looking in several different cities on the North Shore. He was also very knowledgable of houses (i.e. If a house was built in a certain year, he knew what questions to ask to determine if the house was up to standard). Very courteous in all areas of the process.
Aaron is very attentive and responsive. He's a hard worker who will guide you through the selling process. I appreciated how well he communicated, his quick turnaround time, and how he provided feedback. I highly recommend working with Aaron.
We had the pleasure of working with Aaron to purchase our first home. Aaron is extremely professional and easy to work with and was by our side during the entire process. He was constantly available to us, negotiated on our behalf, worked seamlessly with the numerous parties involved, and always put our best interests and needs first. His knowledge of the neighborhood was also very helpful, as it enabled us to recognize the value of our investment. He helped us to put in a bid quickly, and we were under contract within days. He is very talented and savvy, an absolute pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him to others.
