Great experience navigating a short sale property in lincoln park. We were nervous about the process, but appreciated the expertise in navigating!
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Paul & Peter. Total expertise; we didn't worry about a thing. When it came down to the final round of offers, Paul did everything right. We never dreamed we'd be so happy with the whole process and the outcome! Thank you!
Paul has an uncanny knack to align our personality to the properties we were looking at. The insight gained was from the mortgage side of the business through the close. We very much appreciated Paul's ability to draw from his construction back round and experience to bring to our attention the structure of the properties we viewed. I am very glad we used Paul and would highly recommend his service. A true professional.
Paul was an excellent ally in the condo search process. He was patient, informed and someone I now consider a trusted friend.
Responsive. Kept in mind our needs and price range. And the kids are really happy there. Thanks.
Paul was a sea of calm and a font of knowledge in the stormy real estate market in which we found ourselves. He guided us to the goal we set with guidance from he and his cohorts at Dreamtown. I cannot stress how his architectural background and experience in this real estate helped us find our new home and helped the buyer of our former home get an offer to us. Paul has also become a good friend. We highly recommend him to you. Joy F and Greg B
We did a short sale with Paul. It was quite a long process due to my mortg. bank. I was glad we were working with Paul. He was patient, extremely knowledgeable, and had great contacts for us to utilize. He was also very helpful in keeping our buyer/buyer agent happy and around for the length of the process. I would definitely work with him again and refer others as well!
Paul was so helpful. Paul did a wonderful job for our family. Responding ,explaining and answering all our family's questions. Paul handle this sale in Chicago while Family lives out of state. We appreciated all wonderful help and Paul gave us handling this sale helped get our family through a tough time of losing a brother too soon. his help. Paul even stopped by on moving day to see my family . Paul also recommend a great moving company. We were in very good hands with Paul handling the sale of my brother's condo!
Paul was fantastic from beginning to end. We had originally chosen and agent with At Properties who ended up being an awful, awful agent. So, as we reached out to our friends for suggestions, Paul was one of the most highly regarded. Not only was Paul extremely patient with us in our search, he was so knowledgable in every regard-history of each neighborhood, quality of the rehab/home, materials, etc-that we really trusted Paul's input on our purchase. I don't plan on moving anytime soon, but I am definetly looking forward to working with Paul again. Brandon Newton
Paul is a superb real state agent. Always available, knowledgeable, respectful, and willing to go the extra mile for his clients. You don't feel rush or pressure when working with him. This is my second real-state purchase with Paul and I can not be more happy. I highly recommend him and I am sure rarely you will find a better agent than him.
Paul did a great job in helping me understand and navigate the buying process for a first time purchaser/investor
Paul Solitro is your full service agent. He listened to what I was looking for and gave me results that fit my criteria. He worked with me as we looked through a wide range of options and was very patient throughout the whole process. Paul was also very helpful in setting me up with a great financing contact at guaranteed rate as well as some very reliable contacts for floor work and carpet cleaning. On top of that, Paul's customer service was second to none even after the house was finally closed. Overall, Paul and Dream Town were an incredible asset from start to finish and I would recommend him to anyone starting the home-buying process. Jeff Starr, Lincoln Park
My wife and I worked with Paul Solitro and he was extremely knowledgeable of the Lincoln Park/Lake View area. We started out not knowing exactly where we wanted to be and what kind of condo we wanted. Paul was very patient and showed us countless properties. We now have a beautiful "duplex down" just north of Wrigley Field and are very happy in our new home. The Dream Town website was very helpful and we appreciated the daily email updates on changes.

After being hooked on Dream Town's website a few years back, in the very early stages of our search, we finally got serious and it was the ease of navigation that kept me going back. We were assigned some guy named Paul Solitro :) and gave him a call. A good call! Paul was excellent to work with---strong on detail, firsthand knowledge of the neighborhoods and insights that go beyond a traditional real estate agent. His energy and personality are infectious and very much appreciated. I would recommend him highly. Chris D., Lincoln Park
I bumped into Dream Town's website accidentally and liked it right away - it is well-designed with tons of information and very easy to navigate. As I was monitoring my searches on Dream Town's website, I received a call one evening from Paul Solitro, which makes my dream of finding my dream home in my dream town come true! If you are in the market to buy a home, look no further, Paul is your guy: Knowledge: Paul really knows the properties, neighborhoods, and figured out my needs/wants/style very quickly. He was able to filter through hundreds of listings and suggest the units that fit well to my likings. Professionalism: Paul does his homework behind the scene to make every condo search trip smooth and seamless. I still have the stack of booklets he prepared that contained the key info on the units we have viewed on the countless trips we went on. Hard-working and Patience: Paul was super responsive, pro-active, resourceful, and he followed my pace of decision making with extreme patience. Even my families at one point were telling Paul to fire me given my endless requests. Finding a home can be stressful, however, Paul makes it easy, fun and enjoyable. Now sitting on my balcony looking at the sailboats floating elegantly in and out of the harbor, I could go on and on about how great of a realtor Paul is. Enough said. You've got my points!

I am true fan of Paul Solitro from Dream Town Realty! I need to start this review saying that since I am a foreigner my knowledge about real state and buying a property in USA was almost zero at the time I began the search for a place to live. Back in 2009, I was looking to buy a condominium with many specifications in a short period. Interestingly, my family in Panama trying to give me a hand searched the web and found Paul Solitro. Immediately, he called long distance to Panama and spent hours talking to my dad who owns a large real estate company. After their conversation, my dad called me and told me that Paul was very knowledgeable and that I should work with him. Since day one, Paul and I made a great connection and I cannot emphasize enough how great my experience was. He was extremely patient, did not put any pressure, showed me all the places that I wanted to see, and made the showing trips extremely fun and effective. After a few month of intensive search (considering that I was traveling from Philadelphia on the weekends just to see properties) we found the perfect place and a not many weeks later I the keys of my new place in hand. Paul is amazing, seriously! When it came to moving into my new place, he actually acted like my best friend would. One time he even stayed at my place waiting for the furniture to arrive since I was at work and did not had anybody in Chicago to help me. Many other times long after we had closed the deal, Paul continued to help me without the slight intention of secondary gain. My overall experience with Paul was excellent (I would give six stars if possible). I found exactly what I was looking in the house and at the same time, I made a real friend. Nowadays, Paul's family and mine are good friends and I am sure that this friendship will continue to grow. Believe me, if you are in need of a real estate agent, and are looking for the perfect place, please look no further and call Paul Solitro now. I dealt with other agents at my family real estate business and before meeting Paul. I am 100% confident that Solitro and Dream Town Real state are by far your best bet. They for sure will help you find the place of your dreams. Keep up the good work Paul and thank you so much! Waldo H., Lakeview
