Bob and Lynn saw us through a couple of years of looking before finding what ultimately became our first home. I definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy in Chicago: they know the market, and were great at helping us find our home.
loved working with you and Lynn
Thank you for everything you did for us through the entire process, It has been a pleasure working with you. You have a great team behind you and I will definitely refer friends and family to you in the future. Kevin Cheung
As first time home buyers, my husband and I didn't know much about real estate, so it was important to us to find a realtor that we trust. A friend of mine from work gave Bob a strong recommendation, so we decided to work with him. Bob was excellent! Any question we had, he was more than happy to answer for us. We really appreciated his patience with us throughout the process and how knowledgeable he was. He was always there and would respond to us at any time, always quickly and so helpful. Moreover, Bob is truly out for his buyer's best interests; he believes that the best way to do business is to keep our interests in mind, and it really comes through in his work. We never felt like Bob was just trying to make a sale, but really was giving us the best advice possible. He also helped with so much more than just finding our new home. Bob was able to provide us excellent networking for every service that we needed during the buying process, and everyone he recommended was just excellent as well. When you work with Bob, you get so much more than just a realtor. I would encourage anyone I know looking to buy a home to work with Bob. Jessica & Paul Jennings
Bob and Lynn go above and beyond the call to satisfy clients. They have been wonderful to me and far surpass any expectations. I highly recommend them both and have been singing their praises around town.
Bob gives that personal touch. Bob and Lynn knew just what I wanted and I got it.
Bob did a great job. Knowledgeable in the market and helped get my house listed and sold in a short amount of time. Went above and beyond the typical service to get the deal closed.
Bob was wonderful! He put up with my indecisive ways; but most importantly, he was able to discern what I was looking for and what would be the best fit for me. He was always on time - even if I wasn't. Bob guided me through the entire process from start to finish with sound advice and clear communications. I would recommend Bob to anyone and everyone in the real estate market. P.S. His accent is great too!!!
Bob has shown me excellent service not only on a professional level but on a personal level as well. It felt as if he's my friend helping me find a property rather than an agent. He answered any questions I had and provided me with all the information regarding my property and all the other inquiries I had. He has set the bar so high I don't see myself working with any other agent.
Bob was great and was a true pleasure to work with. I especially appreciated his insight and wisdom during the whole home buying experience. He did a phenomenal job and was a true professional!
Bob has an incredible amount of experience and knowledge about the Chicago real estate market. He has bought, sold, consulted and brokered deals. He brings class, knowledge, humor, patience and skill to the industry and any prospective buyer or seller of a house or condo would be lucky to have him on their side. He truly helped us and we highly recommend him and Dream Town Realty.
Everything went very well. Not a single complaint. Thanks Bob for such an excellent service!
Robert is simply the best!!!!!! :)
I am writing to express my gratitude to Robert Pratt - Real Estate Agent from Dream Town who helped me with my recent purchase of an investment property. Bob, thank you very much for this wonderful experience! I have known Bob for several years now and had asked for his advice in regards to investment properties in the past. Bob was always available to meet and share information without putting any pressure on me "to buy". That was very valuable to me because I felt that he cared about me as a person and wanted me to make the decision when I was ready for it. This past summer I decided that I was ready and I called Bob immediately. At first I was a little nervous about how things would go because I didn't know exactly what I wanted to buy. But right after my first meeting with Bob I already felt relieved because he was asking me questions, listened and made suggestions to help me realize what options I felt comfortable with. Very quickly I was able to see what would work for me and Bob was exactly on the same page. The rest was a very smooth process that I truly enjoyed! In all situations Bob was knowledgeable, organized, thorough, and personable. Bob always got back to me very quickly and went through every step of the process - I never felt alone! He was right there for me at all times to arrange things or to answer my questions. I constantly felt that he truly cared about me and sincerely wanted me to be completely happy with my purchase in every way possible. He also provided a great team of people to work with,- an attorney and a mortgage lender who were professional and very helpful. After just a couple of months I purchased my dream condo, and within 2 weeks of Closing Bob had found me a Tenant at a monthly rent rate that means I am instantly cash flow positive. After the Closing Bob and Lynn have arranged the purchase and Installation of a Washer/Dryer, the sourcing and installation of the units Blinds and even the pre move in cleaning, how much more full service does it get! Everything was much easier than I thought it would be and Bob is to thank for it. Bob is the best and his company/team is great and I wouldn't think of going anywhere else! He provided me with great expertise, good advice and instant help with everything. He is still standing by me and together with his wife Lynn is helping me to manage my investment property and I know I don't have to worry about a thing! This peace of mind is something that I value a lot. When I am ready to buy my next property there is no way I am going to work with anyone else - only Bob. And I know it's going to be great. Can't wait! Anna Roudenko, River North
I am writing this letter to give Real Estate Agent Robert Pratt my highest recommendation. I was a first time buyer and Robert was my Agent. He was very helpful, patient and understanding throughout the whole process. Being a first time buyer I had little or no knowledge of how the process worked. Robert was always there to answer my questions and made sure I understood what was taking place. After explaining to Robert what I was looking for in my first home Robert gave me several properties which seemed to match my criteria. Robert never pressured a property on me and made the whole first time buying experience a success. He helped me find the perfect condo in what I feel is the perfect neighborhood. I couldn't be happier with my new place. Thank you Robert Pratt, your next and current clients will be and are lucky to have you as their agent. Sincerely, Michael A. Gaytan, University Village
There is no better word to summarize the manner in which Robert treats his clients other than "family". From the moment my wife and I shook his hand until the day we walked into our new home, Robert was with us every step of the way. You will not find an individual that possesses both the mastery of the real estate market and the level of dedication to find the perfect home for his clients. When my wife and I first began our search for a home two summers ago, we had very little idea of what the journey would entail. Initially, my wife and I tried to do the home searching on our own but we soon realized that all the places we were looking at were not matching up to what we wanted in our first home together. We sought the advice of a close friend who had recently closed on his home. He recommended that we hire Robert as our agent, stating that he could guarantee that we would never find a better real estate agent in the world. Although I was skeptical of my friend's bold statement, I can also confidently state that after working with Robert over the past two years, you will not find a better real estate agent in the world. After my initial five minute conversation with Robert, he sent me an email with details on eight potential properties all within thirty minutes of our conversation. When it came time to looking at the homes, Robert personally drove my wife and me to all of the locations and he thoroughly explained the benefits and drawbacks of each of them. He never rushed us through any property and he was always sincerely happy to answer the multiple questions we asked. What was also truly wonderful about working with Robert was that he always had a way of making us feel comfortable and he always had our best interests in mind. After a month of home searching, Robert found us our perfect home. Robert transformed the daunting journey of finding a home into something exciting, fun, and pleasurable. Once we found our new home, we were faced with having to sell or rent my wife's condominium to avoid making two mortgage payments. I knew exactly who to call. Within 48 hours of contacting Robert, he was at my wife's condominium to discuss the pluses and minuses of selling vs. renting. Eventually, the decision was made to rent the property. We handed Robert the keys and left it in his hands to rent the unit. Both Robert and his wife, Lynn, listed the property, screened potential tenants, personally showed the unit themselves, and took care of all the paperwork. We did not have to lift a finger. From the time we handed Robert the keys to the time the lease was signed, less than two weeks had passed. My wife and I always say that we are so blessed to have Robert and Lynn in our lives. Not only have they been the most perfect real estate agents, they have become true friends. We have recommended and will continue to recommend them to anyone who comes our way looking to buy, sell, or rent their home. <br/><br/>Peter & Juliet Choi, Morton Grove
Congratulations on being a Top Producer in the Chicago market for 2009. I hope your 2010 has started off as well and based on your ability to give those you deal with in the real estate market what they want and need, you should have no problem following up with another great year. I hope we can get together soon. Again, congrats on your sales year. We all knew you were the best when we met, and your knowledge of the market, your negotiating skills, and just the fun of working with you to get the house we wanted, remains one of the true pleasures of buying our house in Chicago. Our best to you and Lynn!Steve, Nancy, and Shana, River North
I had a really great experience with Dream Town! My agent was Bob 'the Brit' Pratt and he is very knowledgeable about the Chicago market and he was committed to finding the right place for me and negotiating to get me the right price. I highly recommend!Chris Mark, Lakeview
Working with Bob and Dream Town was an absolutely wonderful experience. We were moving to Chicago from out of state and knew very little about the area. Bob welcomed us with open arms and treated us like family. He organized two jam packed weekends with lots of different properties that met our criteria. He was very flexible with his schedule and even picked us up when needed. We were ecstatic to find a place we absolutely love and it was truly due to Bob and all of his hard work!Gary Fang, Wrigleyville
Robert Pratt was our real estate agent on our recent purchase of our new condominium in the city. My wife and I were very impressed with the effort and dedication that Robert showed through the whole process. We felt he went above and beyond what we expected from an agent. He graciously accommodated several last minute appointment changes and even went to the final walk through for us when we couldn t. Ours was not an especially expensive purchase, but he always treated us like we were very important. I would not hesitate to use Robert again and I would strongly recommend him. Steve Byrne, Old Town
We had worked with several realtors over the 2 years we were contemplating buying. Each time we decided not to buy as we were frustrated with the realtors who either didn't seem to grasp what we were looking for or seemed to have alternative motives. The whole process just seemed too big and out of reach for us. All that changed the day we got a call from Robert. We felt immediately at ease with his warm personality, sense of humor, and we didn't feel under pressure to buy as we did from other realtors. We are so very lucky to have ended up working with him on our journey to buying our first home. We had no idea what we were doing or what we were looking for and we were so nervous, intimidated, and confused. His vast knowledge and expertise was extremely comforting and we always felt assured that everything was under control. His unending patience with us, our many questions, and e-mails was so appreciated. We could not be more happy with how everything has turned out. Robert has gone above and way beyond his duties as a realtor and well exceeded our expectations as to what a realtor should do for us. It was evident from the beginning that he feels a personal obligation to his clients and we never once had to question if he had our best interests in mind. We really felt as if we had a good friend with us and watching out for us at all times. He has a eagle eye for detail and caught so many things that we never would've noticed. His memory for those details is also really quite impressive as well. We cannot count how many times we said to each other "Thank goodness Robert is here!" As a side note, he also happens to be a very skilled at home projects which came in very useful to us when envisioning the potential or finding the flaws in our home options. He always made us feel like his only clients with his very prompt responses and dedication to us and our process. His take charge attitude really came in handy when problems arose between the lawyers and selling agents. His clear communication skills quickly helped resolve every issue that came up. He often went out of his way to make things more convenient for us and our busy schedules. Even after the closing, when many other realtors would have written off their clients, Robert is still continuing to address the questions and issues that have come up. He has also assured us that he will remain available to us in the future as well and that gives us great peace of mind. Robert has turned the scary and complex idea of first time home buying into a seemingly smooth and exciting reality for us. We feel as if we have gained a lifetime friend through the process and I'm sure this is how all of his clients feel as he is so personable and pleasant to be with. We cannot say enough good about him and we're so happy to share our experience and enthusiastically recommend his services to everyone. We insist our friends and family work with him and we look forward to also working with him again in the future. A Million Thanks, Robert! Jolie and Vince Tripoli, Irving Park
I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a realtor. You could not have been more helpful and attuned to my wants and needs in a condo. I really enjoyed working with you and appreciate all the hard work you did to find me a home. As my friends start purchasing their homes, I'll be passing on your number. Thanks so much!Lisa Meindl, Bucktown
When I first began my search for a home, I had no idea what this journey would entail, what I thought was a very complex and often times intimidating world. Throughout the whole process, Robert has been nothing but informative and patient when answering all of my questions. He has gone above and beyond to explain everything in detail. I think as a first-time homebuyer, one goes through many phases of not knowing exactly what to look for and we kept on changing our minds. Robert helped me focus on exactly why we were doing this, to own a home for our Future lives. There were many aspects of buying a home that one does not factor into his/her equation. Robert helps bring all those factors to light while being exceptionally thorough and detailed in his explanations. His easy-going and polite attitude in dealing with clients takes away the veil of complexity in buying a home. I was always pleasantly surprised at his attention to detail, as well as his prompt replies to email or phone calls. Robert was always ahead of the game. Every time we had a showing at one of our many locations, Robert was always at the location before we got there. Robert was nothing but honest and transparent with us throughout the entire process. I was never hesitant to ask a question or to give my opinions on any matter. He was very understanding of all our concerns as well as sharing his ideas and thoughts. I have referred Robert to everyone I know who is looking or interested at buying property. I will never buy a home without him. Coming from a person that is used to interacting in the business world on a daily basis, I find it hard to meet people who are trusting and loyal. It's a blessing that I met Robert and he never fails to make me feel like he's always fighting for me and on my side. As someone who has gone through the process and finally found a home, I can't emphasize enough how important Robert was to me. Jaewan, Northbrook
