We contacted Danny for both the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our new home. Working with him and his associates through both experiences gave us so much relief and confidence. Not only is Danny knowledgeable and experienced, he is very responsive, prompt, and professional. While his team is excellent and provide many advantages (especially in the sale), Danny always showed up engaged and informed. We were most impressed with his negotiation skills. He was a strong advocate and certainly had our interests in mind. We would definitely recommend him and his associates.
I worked with Danny and team to sell my Ukrainian Village condo. As someone who used to be a licensed realtor, I was looking for a team that knew my micro neighborhood and was service oriented. On our first meeting Danny impressed me with his knowledge of the neighborhood, and had actually sold a similar unit across the street. He carries a spirit of service and truly cares for his clients and has a non-stop work ethic! The team was incredibly easy to work with and very communicative with minimal disruption to real life (I mean I had to make my bed every day). I sold my place with multiple offers in a matter of days. I'm incredibly pleased and would recommend Danny to anyone!
Danny and his team of Cornelius and Maria were beyond helpful throughout the entire process. They were always available to answer all my questions at a moments notice. I highly recommend using Danny and his team for kind, patient, and thoughtful service.
Danny and his team were outstanding from the very beginning. Very prompt to respond, and always willing to make you feel at ease during the entire process. This was my first time selling, and I never felt in the dark or unaware of progress. We just closed on our house today!
We're extremely pleased to recommend Danny Lewis and the Lewis Real Estate Group - we've had a truly fabulous experience with his team and couldn't be happier with the sale of our home. Danny and Erick (our day-to-day contact) obviously understand the market, our neighborhood, and what it takes to sell a single family home in Lakeview. They prepared a first-class sales prospectus and competitive review/marketing plan and were very open to working with us to highlight and detail out some of the special qualities we loved about our home and neighborhood. We appreciated the commitment to our sale goals, the incredible follow-through on communication and tasks (seriously - it didn't matter what time of day, they were available, responsive, and on top of it), and the overall just general expertise and advise shared with us throughout the process. Danny and his team are personable and friendly - they made us feel completely comfortable and that they always had our seller's interests at heart.
Danny was referred to us by a friend, and we could not have been happier with the guidance he provided for us throughout the entire process. We just closed on our first condo! Danny and his team made the experience as stress-free as possible. Danny has great connections that we used for the home inspection, loan approval, lawyer, etc. We felt very cared for throughout the entire process. Danny, Maria and everyone we were connected to were always extremely responsive, knowledgeable and helpful. Could not have been happier with our choice to work with Danny and his team!!
Danny Lewis and his team are just amazing. We had an uphill battle the whole way - not because of Danny and his team - just because of our own particular set of circumstances. Danny kept us on point and focused thru both a tough close on our home we sold and a tough close on the home we bought. Danny’s team is just amazing. We love them all. From Joanne who was instrumental in getting our home sold to Maria (Danny’s right hand, Left hand and both feet) to Eric - who is just the nicest, most kind young man we know. To be clear, Danny led his team through both sales and both closes, but his team is just amazing. Maria is on it 24/7 - she is a machine. We must have requested 100 showings and she never blinked. She set up them up as fast as we requested them. Eric showed us so many places, at all different weird times and days. He never complained and was just an amazing gentleman throughout the process. Joanne showed our home over and over and was just pleasure to deal with. Throughout the process, Danny was there. Guiding us, slowing us down when we needed it and kicking us in the butt when we needed it too. He is extremely knowledgeable and knows the game of real estate very well. He understood the emotional part of selling our home after 16 years and our desire to find the perfect place to move on to. He is a strong negotiator, a great adviser and I have to add - he became a friend through it all. He carried us through a very difficult closing and never wavered or lost his patience. He could have done 30 deals in the time it took us to sell our home and buy our new one - but he never complained and his team never wavered. It is with 100% confidence that I absolutely recommend Danny Lewis and his team to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in Chicago. This is a well-run team - not a one-person show. These folks know how to get it done and are also just the nicest group of folks. It is a very emotional and stressful time selling your home and buying a new one. Danny and his team truly understand this critical part of the deal and make a stressful time - tolerable. Thank you all for a tough job very well done.
Danny was awesome to work with in the process of buying a condo in the city. He understood what I was looking for and did not try to steer me in any other direction. Once we found the perfect condo, he made the purchase process run very smoothly and helped keep my patience in check. I would definitely work with Danny again and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in Chicago.
Danny is knowledgeable, resourceful, patient, and made sure we had the best home-buying experience. Danny understood our wants and needs, to the point where were felt like a good friend was helping us find our home. This group values relationships, respects your time, and is highly responsive. I highly recommend Danny and his team!
Danny and I were walking through a loft when I ran my hand over some exposed pipes. When we concluded our showing Danny casually mentioned that he'd noticed what I did and that he knew why. "You were checking to see if the pipes were hot." He was right. That was just one example of the extraordinary attention to detail Danny and his team paid to every aspect of the home buying process. It's why, despite moving from another state and having very little knowledge of the local real estate market, our purchase went through effortlessly. Danny was always there to offer advice, from "Don't just fall in love with the house, fall in love with the neighborhood," to helping us arrive at our winning bid. His entire team, including home inspectors, lawyers, mortgage brokers, and the peerless Maria Ortega, was equally first-rate. They exhibited a remarkable level of patience, attentiveness, follow-through, knowledge, and flexibility from the first phone call to handing over the keys. Highly recommended.
