Working with Dream Town made my first home buying experience a success. They provided me with all the essential services that I needed at any time. Their website was easy to use and had a wide variety of available properties. I would just like to thank Mitch Gardberg for going above and beyond with his customer service. Mitch was very knowledgeable and helped me with everything from showing the properties and all the way to the closing! Adam Wright, Wrigleyville
Although we were fairly sure we knew what we wanted from a new home, as first time buyers we were also absolutely clueless about the whole property buying process. We contacted Dream Town during the Christmas Holidays and were surprised to be able to arrange a meeting with Mitch Gardberg before the end of the year. At that meeting Mitch clearly explained every step involved, from viewing properties to making an offer and moving in. We were also able to see three condos that same afternoon. We didn't find our new home that day but did feel we had found a Realtor we could trust and who would be patient with our novice questions. With Mitch's help we did eventually find our new home - he did a fantastic job of sealing the deal and getting us a great price! We couldn't be happier and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mitch and Dream Town.Mark, Caroline and Clara Howard, Southport Corridor
I am very grateful to have worked with Mitch Gardberg while buying my first property. Mitch was proffesional, available, and responsive at all times. He took time to explain every last detail involved with buying a property, and made sure I was comfortable with everything. I truely believe that Mitch looked out for my interests throughout the entire process. I did not come to terms on the first place I made an offer, but was able to on the second. During both negotiations, Mitch kept encouraging me to slow down the process, not get ahead of myself, and make sure I got the best deal I possibly could. Mitch really cared more about making sure I got the best deal possible than making sure a deal closed. Mitch's advice throughout the negotations really helped me remain focused and calm, which is difficult during that stressful time. I used my brother-in-law for the home inspection, and a close family friend as my attorney. Both remarked that they've rarely seen realtors who looked after their client's interests the way Mitch did. I would highly recommend using Mitch to anyone who is looking for a realtor, and will certainly use his services again when I move. Thanks again Mitch. Clem
Mitch was great to work with. Always willing to go above and beyond what was expected. Was more concerned with me getting something that I would be happy with instead of just making a sale.
Hekpful without being pushy.
Mitch was exactly what we were looking for in a realtor. He was an incredible resource for information, and did a great job answering questions. He never made us feel like he didn't have the time or that he was in a hurry. He was very trustworthy in that he consistently pointed out both positives and negatives at properties we were considering. This, coupled with his demeanor, made it clear that he had no interest in pressuring us into a transaction. He was more than willing to continue to help and wait for us to find the best combination of location and features for our budget.
Mitch was so wonderful to work with. He not only found us a house that we wanted but even went a step beyond and found something even way better. I couldn't ask for any better service
We had a fantastic experience working with Mitch to buy our first home. Mitch was able to take our wishlist of features into consideration to show us a broad ranges of properties in our desired neighborhood. He went out of his way to make the process easy to follow and always kept us updated throughout the experience. The end result - we got a great home at an amazing process. Thanks Mitch!!
Mitch DELIVERS on the buying side of things! We couldnâ??t be happier in our new home and we credit Mitch for his knowledge, professionalism , and expertise in making that a reality in a situation that had competing demands between both parties
Our experience with Mitch was excellent. Mitch took great care to guide us through the home buying process. Mitch was awesome. We would highly recommended Mitch.
We went through a couple of different and very stressful deals that fell through. We didn't think we'd ever find what we were looking for, but Mitch changed that. He put us in our dream home, and I'm more grateful than I could ever describe.
My husband and I are fist time homeowners because of our realtor Mitch. Mitch was very aware of the â??wants and needsâ?? that my husband and I were looking for in our first home. Mitch listened very closely to our comments as we all viewed homes together. Mitch always had our best interest during the buying process as well. Mitch is extremely patient too. This was evident during each â??stepâ?? we took with Mitch to buying a home. His patience he displayed was very much appreciated as we learned quickly how stressful buying a home can be, and Mitch made us feel comfortable throughout the process. He is extremely reliable and available when you need those hard questions answered. Mitch really makes time for his clients and is passionate about his job. His passion was apparent from start to finish. It was an absolute pleasure working with Mitch. He was recommended to us by my husbandâ??s co-worker. I would recommend Mitch to any seller/buyer because of his expertise in the field. Thank you Mitch for helping us fine our perfect home! We seriously could not have done it without you by our side. Many Thanks, Britni & Chris
Mitch was referred to us by friends and from the first moment we met him, we knew we were in good hands as First time homebuyers. Mitch picked up on our personalities and dreams to really guide us during the process. He saw properties in their entirety and pointed out critical pieces to consider. When we were excited, he was excited. When we were anxious, he took time to explain and assure. Truly, he was the best person to lead us to our dream home.
Mitch was a great realtor for our family over a two year process. He always looked out for our best interests while being completely patient, thorough, generous, showing great integrity and most of all HONEST. He is a very patient and relaxed guy while at the same time also being assertive when need be. Would highly recommend Mitch to friends, family, and anyone searching for a hard-working and respectful agent.
Mitch was on point! He was very helpful and thoughtful through the whole process. Glad I found my place and checked off all of my needs and wants. Will work with Mitch again in the future!
Not only did I get the place of my dreams at an amazing price, I was able to build a lasting relationship with Mitch my realtor. The website is top notch and the people there are the best around. From now on I will only do my realty business through Dream Town and through my realtor Mitch.
We found Mitch on the internet. Mitch was the first to respond to our questions with detail but not force. Although we changed courses midstream, Mitch showed no negativity whatsoever throughout the process. Mitch is very professional and we would recommend him without hesitation. Very ethical, thorough, professional and personal. Good guy. Alison and Jim JaksaStreeterville
Mitch was great. He was with us every step of the way. He went above and beyond the normal duties of a realtor. Not only did we get the place we wanted, but also a friend in the process. Raul Juarez, South Loop
Mitch has patience and that's exactly what I needed in a realtor. I never felt rushed or pressured. We just sat for a half hour in one property so I could get a feel for the space . . . before I decided on something else!He's a joy to work with and always available to answer questions, no matter how many you throw at him! I also appreciate his recommendation on where to go for all of my mortgage questions. I had a great team and now I'm in the most awesome home on the north shore. Hillary Lichtenstein, Evanston
We had a really great time getting to know Mitch through our adventures in finding a condo. Mitch was really an amazing realtor and a trustworthy advocate for us. Its unusual to have such a great experience while looking for a home. We would definitely use Dream Town again. We have already recommended it to numerous family members and friends. Gregg Scholten and Karen Reddy, Edgewater
I would like to extend the highest compliments to my agent, Mitch Gardberg. The entire process was handled in a very professional manner. Even though my needs changed on more than one occasion, Mitch was always helpful and positive, treating me as though my wife and I were truly valued clients. Even after the deal closed, Mitch has maintained the same great attitude as small issues arose and needed to be addressed. I would highly recommend Mitch to any person in the real estate market who is looking for someone to work hard for them to meet their goals in the real estate market, whatever those goals may be. I recently purchased a condo on the north side. Even though I told Mitch that I had picked out a place that I wanted to make an offer on, Mitch took his own time and initiative to find other places in the same price range, and the place I ended up buying was one of the ones Mitch had found. He could have taken the easy way out and just facilitated the deal on the place I had selected, but he was more concerned about our being happy in the long run, and less concerned about making a quick buck. For this, we are extremely grateful. Richard Sorin, Edgewater
Mitch did an amazing job! Even though I was out of town, my buying experience went off without a hitch. Thanks so much!Stephen G. , Lakeview
Mitch was a wonderful buyer's agent to work with. He guided me through every step of the process and gave great advice. Because of Mitch's patience and help, I was able to find a lovely condo in a great Lakeview building. Because Mitch was attentive to my needs, flexible and knowledgeable, I would definitely recommend him to others who are buying or selling homes. Susan Olson, Lakeview
Finding a Chicago studio on a few trips back and forth from San Francisco was easier and more pleasant than anticipated, thanks to the efficient and good-humored support from my Dream Town agent, Mitch. He also kept me on track with deadlines for the purchase while I was swimming in the logistics of a move back to Chicago. Thanks, Mitch!Carry Devine, Gold Coast

Well informed, extremely professional, and very helpful. Mitch made my home search fun and easy. Thanks Dream Town!Carrie Heap, Gold Coast
Thanks for the great experience Mitch! I have always heard that buying your first home is a daunting task but the past two months of condo hunting, putting together an offer, and closing on my new condo has been a great experience. The combination of the huge database on Dreamtown. com and Mitch's experience as a realtor made it easy to find the exact condo I was looking for. Several of my friends have started to show an interest in buying their own place and I will be sure to send them to Dream Town. THANKS!!! Chris Johnson, Lincoln Park
Being new to Chicago I was unsure of where I wanted to live, not to mention my uncertainty of the local market, purchasing process, and condo ownership issues. Without Mitch and Dream Town I am sure I would not be enjoying my new South Loop Condo today! I was immediately impressed with Mitch's knowledge of his industry, the local Chicago market, and his willingness to spend time teaching me what I needed to know to purchase my new condo. Throughout the buying process he showcased his skills and knowledge by: -providing advice during showings and pointing out issues I would have never considered, -quickly responding to inquiries and always providing a thorough and professional response, and -skillful negotiations which allowed me to close on the property I liked best at an amazing price! I know much more about the Chicago real estate market now, but I still will not make a single move without consulting, Mitch, the best agent in the City! Don B. , South Loop
Mitch has not only been a great realtor to us but has also turned out to be a good friend. He's been very patient and understanding throughout our home buying process and really took the time to look for and deliver exactly what we were looking for. He's been there for us every step of the way, right from the property showings to our closing. We were new to the city and Mitch did a great job coordinating property showings and following up on additional questions we had. He was available to us at all times of the day and always made sure he kept our interests and needs in mind when looking for a place. Thanks Mitch for being such a good realtor and a great friend! We wish you the very best of luck in all of your future endeavors! Sudhir and Smitha S. , Portage Park
It was a great pleasure working with Mitch Gardberg as our home selling agent. He was patient with us and explaint every step in the process in great detail. We had no idea how easy is to sell a house . . . thanks to him. Being able to find a buyer in less than two weeks was indeed amazing in today's market. He must have done a terrific job of outlining the pros of the house we have sold to the buyer as we have received the full asking price. I'll be looking forward to do more business with him and I'll recommend him strongly. Gabi and Oliver M. , Edgewater

Mitch was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. He was always available when we needed questions answered and even came with us for the home inspection. Most importantly, Mitch is an excellent negotiator. He got us two repairs concessions on an "As Is" property.Tom Whitaker, Lakeview
We randomly found Mitch online while looking at some properties. We sent a quick question, and within minutes our phone rang! Mitch helped us find a home that we're extremely happy in. He was knowledgeable in all regards throughout the entire process- from looking at homes, to closing. We've now been in our new home for well over a year, and Mitch is still an invaluable asset when questions arise. He takes his clients happiness very seriously. He's truly one-of-a-kind. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to find their dream home. We could have ended up with anyone, but we really lucked out with Mitch. When we decide to move again, I know whom I'll be calling. Thanks for everything, Mitch!
I had a great time to have Mitch as my agent and very pleased with the housing deal. I used to be an international student from China and not familiar with the housing market in Chicago at all. Mitch came to me as a very helpful and creditable professional who put client's interest above anything else all the time and helped to address my requests in a patient and effective way. Above all, I managed to get a very satisfying discount for the deal I signed thanks to Mitch's tremendous efforts in negotiation and relationship networks.I strongly recommend him as a great housing agent. Best, Kathy
We worked with Mitch Gardberg of Dream Town in the process of buying our first house in Chicago. From the start, he was very easy to work with and showed a genuine interest and care in finding us exactly what we were looking for. He was very professional and patient. Through six months of spending what seemed like every weekend looking at houses, including completely changing the neighborhood we were searching in from one side of the city to the other, Mitch was professional and caring through the entire process. Finally, when we found a home we liked and wanted to move on, he held our hand throughout the entire process ensuring that we knew everything that was going on and did not have any outstanding questions. His knowledge of the city was excellent. He was the perfect agent for a couple not too familiar with the city and who were first time home buyers. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a realtor in Chicago. If every agent in Dream Town is like Mitch, then it is no wonder why this agency is so successful in Chicago. Jordan G., Beverly
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Mitch throughout our home buying experience. He was very patient and informative. Being first time home buyers, our knowledge of the buying process was very limited. It was clear that he was looking out for our best interests at every turn and did everything in his power to ease the stress and burden on us. He was there to answer questions at all hours of the day and provide feedback during each stage of the process extending to beyond closing. If every agent at Dreamtown holds themselves to the same professional standard as Mitch did, it is no wonder that Dreamtown has garnered such a magnificent reputation throughout Chicago. We would not hesitate in the slightest to use this organization, especially Mitch, again in the future. Jordan R. Gaster, Beverly
As everyone knows, the last couple years have been anything but ideal for selling real estate. However, having retired in August of 2010 and anxious to be with my family in Colorado, I was determined to sell my Chicago "Gold Coast" Condo and determined to find the right real estate agent - I succeeded on both counts! After interviewing several Real Estate Agents, it quickly became apparent that Mitch Gardberg of Dream Town Realty would be the man for the job. Mitch is both professional and personable; he made the whole "selling process" a positive as well as successful experience. In a matter of a few months, beginning in March of 2011, Mitch and I worked together, found the right buyer, negotiated the terms of the sale...and... by the end of July, my "dream" of moving to Colorado Springs became a reality --- we closed on July 29th! I am now living in the foothills of Cheyenne Mountain and the Rockies in the beautiful state of Colorado --- When I think of the "selling experience", I can only sit back, smile, and say: "Thank you Mitch Gardberg and Dream Town Realty --- for making MY dream come true! Paul L. Kedrok, Colorado Springs
As a first time homebuyer, I could not have asked for a better experience. Mitch was very helpful and patient throughout the process, and was clearly very knowledgable. Mitch was not pushy, and was very friendly, which helped make for a great overall experience. In the end, we ended up getting a great deal, in my ideal location. I would recommend Mitch to friends looking to purchase a home in Chicago. Jonathan N., Lincoln Park
