If you're looking for an agent with insight - knowledgeable and informed insight, that is - you'll want to talk with Ian Halpin. He shares his professional insight into properties and pending deals because he believes every real estate transaction should be a collaborative effort between him, as the agent, and the people he is representing. Every deal requires thoughtful decisions on both sides, he says, so he wants to be "100 percent" comfortable with the purchase or sale before advising his client to proceed. For Ian, this isn't about just any deal - it's about the right deal for his client. Ian's clients endorse his approach, saying that he stays focused on helping them make informed and well-considered choices, even if his insight runs counter to their initial reactions to a prospective purchase or a listing price. His real estate experience goes back to home in Dublin, Ireland, where his father was a builder and Ian learned his way around a job site by working in construction. After coming to the United States, he formed a development company specializing in residential building construction and investment properties. Ian describes himself as being relationship driven, as opposed to transaction driven. He offers his clients the benefits of his unique real estate perspective, thanks to his background in construction, rehab potential and property investments, particularly on Chicago's northside, where he and his family live.
My wife and I first met Ian after submitting an online inquiry about a condo in Logan Square. After meeting with him, we really enjoyed his personality and passion, and then decided he would be our realtor going forward. He met with us multiple times to understand what we wanted and where we needed to be. We've bought and sold both of our condos thanks to Ian's hard work and dedication to his clients. Ian is not only our realtor, he's now a dear friend. We have since moved out of state and wish Ian could have came with us. Put your trust in Ian and you will never be disappointed!
Ian goes above and beyond for his clients, and that rang very true for us in our home search. Though it took us nearly 8 months to find our ideal place, he was a partner with us through and through â?? giving patient and sound insight along the way. We're so thankful we had him on our team and going to bat for us to close the deal! -Alex and Jennifer M.
Working with Ian is a GREAT experience. He is not only very active and engaged in the process, but also in prioritizing the client. He is personable and highly competent, being able to think on his feet and get the transaction done with ease. Ian is also very knowledgeable about construction and rehab, which simplifies the inspection process with fantastic follow through. YOu cannot ask for better customer service and a successful transaction...one of My Favorite People!
Ian, has helped my family with both selling and purchasing homes over the last few years. He took the time to understand our goals for each transaction and helped us set realistic expectations. He sold our first home in under a week by pricing it competitively and creating a listing that captured the home brilliantly. He saw every transaction through all phases including inspections, mortgages, and attorney reviews. I have worked with other agents in the past but Ian sets himself apart. I would highly recommend Ian as a realtor.
Ian is great! He is knowledgeable of the market and always very professional. Ian cares about his clients... and our family highly recommends him.
We are so happy that Ian assisted us in getting the condo of our dreams. It took some work and a long close as we requested but everything went as plan. Ian was very responsive and calmed our nerves in such an emotional process. Thank you from the Albert family.
Ian is the best! He's patient, knowledgeable, accessible, and he worked with me and my family the get our place sold as quickly as possible for the best price. Highly recommend!
Working with Ian was a fantastic experience I have to say. I now live out of state and really miss how genuine and kind people back home are. Ian went out of his way to help me with all the small details I couldn't take care of, and got me $35k over asking price! Nice work Ian!! Thank you, Michael
Ian was an incredibly helpful agent for me during my first every purchase! He talked me through every single step, and was available to me whenever I called. Ian was honest with his thoughts for what I needed in my home, was willing to give me harsh realities, and worked with me every step of the way.. I truly believe that I could not have gone through this experience without him. Thanks Ian!
Ian was fantastic. He helped us find the right home and spent a lot of time with us. More importantly, Ian was an advocate for us - helping us make the right offer (or in some cases, no offer at all). His knowledge of homes and building quality was amazing. He also spent extra time to bring in contractors to look at potential rehab issues and costs. All in all, we felt Ian was looking out for us. Liz and Stan
Great experience working with Ian. He was a partner throughout and was always thinking of my best interest. Would recommend to anyone.
