Louis is easy to work with, listens to the needs and desires of his clients, and helps them manage a Chicago dream and financial reality. Relocating to a new city is exciting and challenging. Louis has a deep understanding of what neighborhoods can offer. I really liked that he showed us several areas, styles of building, and ranges of rent. Thank you Louis! If we choose to move, we'll call again.
Louis is very helpful, kind, professional, and highly knowledgeable. He was able to help me identify a place and beat out a competing offer to close all within a week. I couldn't be happier with the place. He may be the best realtor in Chicago! Additionally, Louis has experience as a contractor and can quickly identify potential issues in the home/apt during your initial visit.
Louis is a perfect agent for a client who knows what she wants. He responds within minutes and he is on top of his game. I can highly recommend him!
Louis is caring and committed to finding what you're looking for and seeing things through to the end. Thank you for a great experience!
Louis is great to work with! He knows the real estate market very well and is very dedicated to those he works with. He works hard to find the right property in the area that you're looking for and works to get it at the right price. Truthfully, we had such a great experience working with Louis that we wouldn't work with anyone else.
We were looking for a property in the Streeterville area of Chicago and were fortunate to connect with Louis. He knows that area well and worked hard to find us the right property in that area, and at the right price. He was very creative and very dedicated and we were very pleased with the overall experience because he was great to work with. We would definitely recommend him to others and would gladly work with him again in the future.
