Steve has always been responsive to our needs in finding property and gives honest opinions and perspectives.
Steve is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. He functions with honesty, integrity and with true care and compassion for his clients. He knows a lot about the Chicago housing market and is well connected to other great professionals. My husband and I had spoken to a few other realtors that devalued our property and we would have lost money on the sale had we moved forward with any of them. Steve was able to get us a fair price and far above what the others said we could get. I would not only recommend him to anyone but also am constantly looking for new opportunities to bring him business. He is a rare find in the real estate agent world and I absolutely enjoyed working with him! Give him a call if you want an enjoyable experience!
A month after my condo went on the market, I moved to the East Coast. Steve and his team took my condo into their hands, I did not have to worry about one single thing. All I had to do was sign and dot at the end. Honestly, I felt that I was their sole client because the patience and sound advice given to me as I had questions or doubts in my mind shows their true professionalism. I never felt rushed during the process of my condo negotiations, nor was I pressured into making a quick decision. Steve’s knowledge of the market is more than I could have asked for. I owe them a round of drinks! Thank you Steve Genyk Group!
I've bought and sold three times in the last four years and my experience with Steve Genyk was by far superior to anyone or anything else. The reasons were simple: Steve understood my needs and requirements because he's a great listener. Steve offered sound advice backed up by facts, and wasn't afraid to make suggestions that proved meaningful. And finally, he was equally appreciated by every potential buyer that stepped in to my home and considered a purchase. I'm sure I'll partner with Steve again when I buy or sell.
I have sold or purchased 2 properties with Steve and he is a very gifted representative. My first experience with selling a property with Steve, he offered me some simple ideas for making the "showings" more effective. He then sold my property to to first person who came through the door, pretty impressive!
Steve is extremely organized, connected and thorough in his communication with his clients! He really advised us well on the preparation of our home prior to taking the photos for our listing, as well as preparing it for listing/showings. He thinks out of the box on strategy and his follow up with potential buyers has been impeccable. We feel very confident that our home sale result/experience will be the best it can be and very happy we chose Steve Genyk as our listing agent!
Steve is a professional who will hard for you to achieve your goals. He has great knowledge of the markets and that will aid in the proper pricing of the listing. Steve advised us on converting an apartment building at 6521 N. Lincoln in Lincolnwood into to condos. He prepared an effective marketing brochure and had lots of communications with realtors in that area to make sure they knew about us. He came up with the name Lincolnwood Row and sold all 8 condos in the building. He also had success advising us on the sale and marketing of 1627 N. Clybourn Ave in Chicago. That was a mixed use retail and apartment building.
Can't say enough about the outstanding, consistent and A+ job Steve Genyk has done for me and my family over the years. Steve has executed flawlessly on six buying/selling transactions in downtown Chicago, Sauganash and Park Ridge for me, my sister and grandmother over the last 15 years. I trust in Steve to get the job done expediently with a deep, strategic knowledge of Chicagoland real estate. One time he sold my condo in 8 hours for full asking price after it hit the MLS. Bam!
I had the pleasure to work with Steve Genyk in May 2017.He was very professional and knowledgeable. He always answered any questions that had in detail and was very helpful in my decision making process. I look forward to work with him again and I would highly recommend his services to anybody he definitely knows the market and is very resourceful.
The first time we worked with Steve Genyk was when we were looking to leave the city and move into the suburbs. He knew exactly what we were looking for, and within a week and a half, helped us find a home that we fell in love with. Admittedly, the process for this purchase wasn't an easy one. However Steve was excellent in helping us to navigate our way through the process, alleviate the stress, and was impressive in his negotiations with the Seller in order for us to close on the deal. His deep knowledge about the market, but most importantly, a good understanding of people in general makes him highly valuable. So much so, that when we were ready to sell our condominium unit, we worked with Steve again. He sold our unit in record time (in Chicago's winter season!), and for close to the sales price! For anyone looking to buy or sell real estate, Steve Genyk is definitely one of the most market-savvy professional and results-driven real estate broker in Chicago!
Steve has been our realtor since 2002. Every property we have purchased or sold With him as our advisor has been a success. In my opinion, is expertise lies in his knowledgeable & high end marketing abilities and Youthful energetic enthusiasm.
Steve is a true problem solver! When my Lakeview duplex sat on the market longer than it should have in a hot market, I asked him to take over my listing and sale. His suggestions regarding pricing and de-cluttering made all the difference in the world and we received an offer within a day or two - at list. Steve has great energy, solid ideas and gets it done - I highly recommend him!
Steve was superb in handling the sale of our home. The first buyer was difficult to negotiate with and after giving Steve and us a difficult time signed a contract to buy. Then 5 days before closing the buyer backed out of the sale. Needless to say we were not happy. Steve quickly got things on track and brought in two new offers. He absorbed the brunt of our distress and brought the sale closure at our asking price! He is a true professional who puts his clients at ease and really knows the market. We can recommend him to anyone needing to sell their home.
Steve was a tremendous help selling my home and looking for a new one. I have recommended him to my friends and neighbors many times. I look forward to the next sell and buying experience, he is prompt, professional, jovial, warm, understanding and informative. I was lucky to have worked with him.
Steve was a pleasure to work with. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable and went above and beyond to find a quality buyer for our home within 2 days of going on the market. We would recommend anyone to Steve and will use him for our future real estate needs.
I worked with Steve to sell my home and to purchase a new residence. The whole process took over a year because I kept changing my mind (after I decided to sell I couldn't decide what I wanted to buy, new house, condo, 2 flat?). He stuck with me the whole time and always responded to my texts, emails and calls immediately. This allowed me to get into places quickly in a very competitive market and to finally get a great place, under market. He knows the local market and gave me lots of great advice about areas to look in. I really believe he always had my best interests at heart and helped me to negotiate to get the best deal I could.
Steve is a pro, pure and simple. He did a wonderful job working with me and my wife as we tried to find that perfect place in the City that offered us the things we wanted in our next home. Steve was always helpful, yet never pushy, and as such made us feel very comfortable along the way. In the end, we could not have been more pleased with Steve and his approach and guidance. If you need a top tier agent, Steve should be your guy...
We were referred to Steve by an agent in Chicago, and couldnt have been happier to be introduced. Our family of 5 was moving to Park Ridge from Chicago, and moving to the suburbs was a tough pill to swallow. We spent several days with Steve, driving around Park Ridge and looking at properties. The whole process was a very pleasant one, as he was not only extremely knowledgable about the area and the industry in general, but his direct approach was well received by my wife and I. I would recommend Steve to anyone looking to move to Park Ridge, or the surrounding area. 5 stars arent enough.
After meeting with several real estate agents, Steve’s thoughts on how to sell our house made the most sense. We followed all advice Steve gave us on how to prepare the house and Steve executed exactly what he said he would do and sold the house in 4 days after being on the market for 6 months with another agent and receiving no offers. We highly recommend Steve to sell your house and we felt like he was with us every step of the way.
Steve has a ton of experience and understands the market, the neighborhoods and the intricacies of any given deal. Unlike some agents, Steve advised me on lowering my asking price and we ended up getting a great deal. I look forward to using Steve again when I buy or sell a property.
Absolutely the best experience working with Steve! My family loved working with him. He's genuine, real, kind, transparent, and works VERY hard, especially before listing on the market officially. He sold our place in less than 24 hours at a price much higher than our offering price. We were thrilled about it. Thank you for being our rockstar realtor! The best of the best!!!
Steve gave great advice in preparing my home for listing, had a fantastic photographer, and generated lots of buzz via an excellent marketing approach. Steve made the selling process stress-free and stayed in touch throughout the process. He was an expert negotiator and brokered a deal that benefited both me and the buyer.
Steve is the consummate professional. He know his market and is a pleasure to work with. He is genuine and in the world of real estate someone who is trustworthy and a “go to” resource for anyone buying or selling their home!
Steve couldn’t have been more professional during these crazy pandemic times he listed and sold my home with little to no issues on my end .Steve is a sincere ,genuine ,trusting gentleman I would highly recommend him without a doubt.
