We were very fortunate to find Dee Savic in Chicago's crowded list of real estate professionals. From the beginning she was very respectful of my wishes -- just simply doing a basic search for information. Not pushy -- just sending information as requested. We looked at several properties. I was so impressed with the written information she gave us on the properties we viewed, as well as her ability to quickly followup with answers to questions we had. The experience of putting in an offer in another state was new to us, but she walked us through everything and suggested good professionals to assist as needed (the real estate lawyer group was fabulous). In addition, her responsiveness, professionalism and genuine likability was second to none!
It was a pleasure working with Dee throughout the process of buying my first home in Chicago. She is incredibly knowledgeable, and was excellent in bridging communication between myself and the sellers. Thanks to Dee, the entire home buying experience went as seamless as possible. I will definitely be recommending Dee to my friends that are in the market, and would certainly work with Dee again!
Dee is very knowledgeable, professional, helpful and friendly! Dee was always available to schedule showings and always quick to respond to our questions. We couldn't imagine going through the real estate process with someone other than Dee. We hit the lottery when she became our realtor!
Dee is an amazing realtor. She is very knowledgeable, energetic, helpful, and friendly, and was available to me day and night when I had questions or problems. When I found out my landlord was going to put the condo that I was renting on the market, she immediately started researching comparable units in the area that I was interested in. She had good advice and was very knowledgeable about rentals, taxes, fees, etc. that made the search more realistic for me. She also encouraged me to think about buying my condo because of a special loan program that I ended up qualifying forâ??without Deeâ??s suggestion and knowledge of this loan program, I would never even have considered trying to purchase my condo! Once I started on the process of purchasing the condo and obtaining a loan, Deeâ??s resources and networks of useful people and companies helped me finance the mortgage, get an appraisal, find an attorney, etc. I would never have known who to go to or how to find them without her. She made the whole process stress-free and seamless. Dee also helped my mother find her condo that she is now renting when she was moving to the city. My mom only had a few days to look as she was flying in from out-of-state, and Dee set both of us up in advance with listings that we could review so that she knew exactly what my mom was looking for when she came into town. During that several day window of viewing rentals, Dee worked tirelessly and my mom found the perfect condo for her and is happily living there today. Dee continued to help my mom with all of the paperwork when she returned to her home before the move to Chicago. My mom definitely couldnâ??t have done all that on her own or even with my help. I definitely recommend Dee to help you find your next perfect place!!
"I really enjoyed working with Dee. I happened to meet her after sending an email of interest about a property and was impressed with her professionalism and knowledge, and am very glad I decided to work with her in looking for a place to buy and then with the sale of my prior home. Having worked with her, I am also extremely impressed with her ethics and willingness to go above and beyond in dealing with some stressful situations. Once I told her what I was looking for, she was extremely responsive in identifying possibilities and helping me evaluate the properties we looked at, and it was also a lot of fun to look at properties with her. I looked at quite a few properties before making a decision, and she was understanding of my process. When it came to selling my old place, she had some invaluable recommendations as to the best way to market the property. I would recommend her highly.
Dee is a complete Professional in her field, she does not attempt to be all things to all people, meaning, she sticks to what she is good at and communicates that with the client, when Dee says she can do something you can take it to the bank. I have used Dee in acquiring property as well as selling property, there is no one in this industry in Chicagoland I trust more than Dee Savic, period. If you want to move property or acquire property, she is the only call I would make.
Dee assisted me in 2014 in buying a 1-bedroom condo in Wicker Park. Years later, my husband and I decided to start looking at buying a house and I immediately went back to Dee. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable in navigating the ins and outs of searching for a new home, she is an excellent negotiator and will help you find what you are looking for at the price you are hoping to get. We cannot speak highly enough of Dee and her work. She would help explain what the costs would or could be with many of the homes we looked at as well as highlight the positives and negatives of the homes in a straightforward manner. My husband and I now have a beautiful new home all thanks to Dee.
While I was looking for a condo near Lakeview area in Chicago, Dee Savic of DreamTown assited me in search of a condo. I couldn't be happier with how I was treated and worked with Dee. She was extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and proactive on communicating with me and both seller's and my attorneys. I wish I could find some criticism to help her better herself in her career, but I sincerely can't think of anything that she could have done differently for me. I can't imagine that any other realtor would have had the patience to deal with multiple issues that it occurred during the process. I would highly recommend Dee to anyone purchasing or selling real estate properties in Chicago
I have known Dee for over 10 years. During that time she has helped me purchase four properties and sell one. Lots of fun adventures in the process, nevertheless Dee has always been there to support, simplify, advice, fight for my interests and at the end close the deal. Hands down she has been the best realtor I have ever worked with. Irrespective to whether you are buying a single family house, a one bedroom condo or an entire building Dee works as dedicately. She is always available (no matter day or time), is punctual to all appointments, refers you to people as competent as she is (if you need a lawyer or loan), and what is my top of the list requirement, makes things easier for you. I will never use another realtor. Oh... and when I have recommended her she has never made me look bad or has disappointed my business partners or friends.
Working with Dee Savic was such a pleasure. When we started (3 years ago), we had no idea what we wanted, but Dee helped us figure out the pros and cons of all our options. She also answered all of our questions, as well as, educated us; since we had no idea what we were doing. Dee was extremely patient and dedicated. She was always willing to put in the extra effort to answer our questions, to make sure we were happy with our decisions, and let us know how the market/area looked. When we found our dream home, she was with us every step of the way. Her highly experience and professional team made the buying process as non stressful as possible. Dee is definitely someone you want to work with. From her work ethic, you can tell that she loves her job and is very knowledgeable. We could not have done this without her!!!! Laura Abukhalaf
Fantastic! I told Dee what I was looking for and the properties she showed me hit the nail on the head. I'm very busy and travel a lot so it was especially helpful to be able to work through the selection process so efficiently. I only looked at four places before falling in love. Dee went out of her way to make a deal happen even after the property was taken off the market! I would refer Dee in a second and will most definitely be using her in the future.
Dee was always professional and followed up on all the finest details of the transaction, she was always available when we had questions and responds very quickly which we really appreciated. It was a pleasure to work with her- she definitely helped make this process a smooth one.
Dee was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable during my home buying process!
I was a first time buyer on a strict schedule. Dee is thoughtful, experienced, and was very flexible in helping me at every step of the way. She went well beyond her duties, meeting me during odd hours to show me apts or helping me understand fees. She even went all the way to Skokie to pick up the key to my building. I can not thank her enough for explaining everything to me, often more than once, and helping me through the many decisions and processes of home ownership.
Dee was exceptional in terms of closing my transaction in our favor. She has been very responsive in after sale service too & we can always count on her to assist us with anything concerning our realty purchase. For me being outside the US Dee Has been a great asset in making my purchase. Julio Lobo
AMAZING!!! A REAL STAR!!!
Dee Savic was our realtor as we recently searched for a condo in the South Loop. She was efficient, knowledgeable, and pleasant to deal with. She helped us to find what we were looking for and to reach a satisfactory bid and closing. She was very helpful in working with the developer and our attorney to make sure all necessary steps were covered. We would highly recommend Dee. Lynn Zadkovic, South Loop
When my sister and I decided to relocate from Salt Lake City, we targeted New York, Dallas/Fort Worth and Chicago. While browsing condos on the Dreamtown website there was a pop-up asking me if I needed help which I responded to and I connected with Dee Savic. Right away Dee zeroed in on what we were looking for, suggesting Lincoln Park and Lakeview as neighborhoods she thought we would like. She started sending us condos that met our criteria. We decided to go to Chicago and look at the condos available. Dee shown us 23 condos in 2 days. We came away thinking that we could be happy in many of them. After a few months of trying to sell our condo in Salt Lake we decided to rent it and move to Chicago. We contacted Dee and she found us several properties that met our criteria and we were able to focus on three for our final decision. We ended up in a condo in a building and neighborhood that we really like. We found Dee to be the ideal realtor, she listened to our needs, she was proactive and stayed on top of all the details as our transaction was complicated by buying from another state. We feel really lucky that we had Dee as our realtor and would highly recommend her. Maxine & Barbara Durst, Uptown
I was a first-time buyer down on my luck because of a previous condo purchase that had fallen through due to building issues. After months of back and forth, with the part-time help of my good friend and realtor, losing what would've been my first condo to circumstances out of my control was an exhausting and upsetting experience. But, I still had the itch to buy and needed to move fast. My apartment lease was almost up and I needed to find a place to live. I was referred to Dee and couldn't be more thankful; she definitely got the job done! From the first phone call, I knew I was with the right person; she was up for the challenge. She exhibited professionalism throughout and was persistent in searching the MLS for the most up-to-date listings that corresponded with my criteria. She found a place minutes after it was posted and was on the phone scheduling a showing; impressing both me and the seller's realtor who couldn't believe she was being asked to show the place so quickly. This was just one of many viewings where we were one of the first people to see a property in search of the perfect place with the clock ticking. Dee helped me with offers on two condos: both were complex sales. One I lost to an investor who outbid me and the other became mine — a foreclosure that I now call home. My purchase was complex and a lot of tedious work was involved (we had issues with the condo association, the bank, the inspector, the lawyer, etc.,) but Dee helped smooth out the bumps — several of which didn't fall under her responsibility as my realtor, but she helped out any way. Don't let her sweet face fool you, she's a fierce professional who strives to get the perfect place for her clients. I would highly recommend her to anyone — she gets the job done. Melissa McCaffrey, Lakeview
My property was sold and the funds received. This will greatly benefit me. Your actions were crucial in achieving this outcome. The sale encountered many obstacles and included many unusual circumstances. You responded and guided the process and people through these obstructions. When I sit back and consider everything you did, I am amazed. Your contribution exhibited a high level of competence and professionalism and more so, commitment and perseverance. And even more, personal understanding and consideration. I felt confident that my interests were protected and that anything beneficial that could be done would be done. I am grateful for what you did and want to express this to you.Larry Wolfberg, West Ridge
If you're looking for an amazingly bright, thorough, ingenious, well-organized, extremely informed realtor, look no further because Dee Savic is your lady! Ok, so maybe you're not convinced yet, but by the end of my testimonial, I hope you will be! A little background on me: single, no kids, moved to Chicago from LA in 2006, have a home in LA and bought my first home in Chicago with Dee's assistance, but boy was it a BUMPY ride... not through any fault of Dee's; if it weren't for her, I don't think I would have made it.In Jan. 2009 I put in my offer on my dream home. In February I got my wallet stolen and a day later was laid off from my job. A month later I got a new job and in the interim the house went back on the market but someone else's offer was accepted. I refused to give up on my dream home and prayed and prayed it would come back to me. A week later, Dee called and said, "Lucy, you're the luckiest lady I know, the house is back on the market!" We immediately put in a new offer. I was one of five offers and mine won! But the roller coaster hadn't started moving yet. The same day we went to do the inspection on the property, I fell victim to serious identity theft! Meanwhile, I was having issues with the loan on my first home back in LA. So, I started defaulting on the home in LA while trying to close on the new home in Chicago! I was very honest with Dee from the get go and was shocked that she never left my side and never gave up on me or my home, despite the numerous obstacles we incurred! It was a 6 week battle and I was told the deal should be canceled FOUR TIMES, but I never gave up and neither did Dee! In the end I was ready to give up all of my savings in order to close the deal but she fought tooth and nail to save the deal AND to make sure not one extra penny came out of my savings above the amount that was initially agreed on! If not for Dee's faith in me, her ability to think quick on her feet, her constant desire to help me find a way to obtain my dream home (all the while knowing that if I didn't close on this home, by the following month my perfect credit would be tarnished and I wouldn't be able to get approved on a new home) and her constant follow ups with everyone from the attorney to the selling agent to the asset manager... well, I would not have been able to close on my new home in Chicago and I wouldn't have made such an amazing new friend! She's not just a realtor! She will care for you, your family, and your personal situation and will go above and beyond the call of duty at all hours of the day to make sure you get the home you want!Lucy Sivov, Portage Park
Barbara and I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed working with you. As you know, much to our surprise, we sold our home in two and a half weeks. We had not even started look for a place to live, yet. So Barbara frantically started making calls to realtors to get started. You responded the quickest, and set up 6 appointments for the very next day (Sunday). Our plan was to switch over to another realtor that a friend recommended to us on Saturday night, but you came so well prepared and we loved the way you handled each situation, that we decided to stay with you. That turned out to be a great decision on our part. With very limited time to find a place, you had shown us thirty four different properties over of a span five meetings. You also knew that we would have to rent if we couldn't find anything quick enough. But that didn't bother you at all. You had so much patience, and gave us such great advice. We will be recommending you to all our friends, who decide to move from the suburbs to the city. You were wonderful. Thank you for everything.Bob and Barbara, River North
Dee was fantastic to work with; as we sold our home and prepared to move cross country. She proved patient, professional and polished, even during our most frantic moments. She communicated consistently with us, and was honest and straight forward. She even offered to water our plants. Her professional demeanor helped us build a rapport quickly to get the house sold for our asking price, within days of putting it on the market! Thanks Dee, we're so happy to have worked with you!Jay and Anna, Mayfair
Dee went far beyond the normal, and even beyond the extra, attention we expected as first-time buyers. She knew what we wanted from a home and did not needlessly waste our time. More importantly, she was pleasant, patient, and professional from start to finish. In the end, she made the deal for our home possible more than anyone else.Jason, Linden
Buying a first home, we feel like we lucked out having Dee as our agent. We really didn't know what to expect when looking for a first home and Dee was always gracious, patient and had great communication whenever we had a question. Many times, Dee would even be willing to meet us in person even without much notice on our end. When we were caught with a few surprises during the buying process, she always assured us that everything would work out and her reassurance helped us tremendously. We always felt that Dee had our best interests in mind and it made everything that much easier for us. We are so happy with the condo that we found in the South Loop and would recommend her to everyone.David and Eriona, University Village
This has been an amazingly exhausting yet rewarding experience. Your time, patience and diligence have been so much appreciated. You've made my dream come true bigger and better than I ever could have imagined. IT'S OFFICIAL!!! I have my keys and check in hand!!! I'm moving in tomorrow and I am so elated! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all of your hard work! Working with you has been amazing! You are so ridiculously talented, smart and so amazingly dead on in everything you do!Chauncie, Kenwood
Once upon a time, a little girl, who is now a young woman, wanted to live in the Windy City. She didn't have much for a down payment, so her parent's decided to surprise her with a monetary gift. But before her parent's told her the news of the gift, her mother searched the internet for a Realtor. Not being too computer savvy, the Mother entered very specific information on the type of property, location and other criteria that she wanted to research before telling her daughter of the surprise. She received a quick response from Dream Town Realtor, Dee Savic. Dee, immediately jumped into action and before the week was up, my daughter learned of her surprise and sighed a contract in the exact location she wanted to live. She was so happy and excited. It was perfect! This was a short sale. We knew it would take time, however, Dee, kept us informed almost everyday. She referred an attorney that was fantastic! She stayed on top of the deal from beginning to end. Every email question was answered and every phone call was returned. Dee, always spoke with a smile in her voice and always projected a professional personality. She is truly the Realtor that was meant to work with us. I don't think the deal would have closed without Dee's expertise. Short sales are demanding when it comes to forms and required information. Although, the transaction took longer than expected due to the sellers circumstances, the closing went off without a hitch! Cyberspace placed us together for a reason. If anyone is looking for an exceptional Realtor, have them call Dee Savic, if she doesn't answer, trust me, she'll call you back ASAP! Dreams really do come true! Thanks Dee, you're the Best. P.S. And they all lived happily ever after... Betty & Randy Barham, Lincoln Park
I am writing to thank you for your excellent service regarding the sale of my sister's co-op. The kindness and patience that you showed me as I dealt with the sale due to my sister's untimely death was much appreciated. In addition, I appreciated your true professionalism during these hard real estate times. I would highly recommend you to my friends and acquaintances. Please feel free to use my name as a reference in the future. Fischel, West Rogers Park
