I was selling a 2 bedroom/1 bedroom condo in a difficult
for sellers. I interviewed 4 other agents before meeting
, and within the first few minutes of our meeting, I knew
was the perfect fit.
came to our initial meeting prepared with
data in hand. She also provided very constructive and honest feedback of what I was likely to encounter during the sale process, and offered some advice on how to best prepare my condo.
Throughout the selling process, she was always available and at my request, provided insightful and thoughtful advice. There were some difficult decision points along the way, and I always had faith that I could count on her to tell me what I might not want to hear honestly and respectfully, and often with a little bit of humor.
As difficult as the whole process was, I know
made it as bearable as possible, and even a little fun at times. I have complete confidence that she helped me get the best price possible. I would not hesitate to use her services again and have been enthusiastically recommending her to family and friends who are looking to buy or sell.

We were looking for a real estate agent we both could agree on to sell our house. We interviewed
to discuss a price point, his process for marketing our property and entertain any suggestions he might have to prepare our property for sale. After talking with
, seeing his track record and hearing the various mechanisms he would use to
our property, and as he calls it his "special sauce" for preparing for sale. We both agreed
would represent our interests well.
We came to a mutually agreeable price point that we thought the property was worth and that was aligned with the
. The aspect of this process that impressed me the most is that
didn't try to talk us down from the value we placed on our house and was willing to work hard to tap into every channel available to sell our house. In addition he made fabulous recommendations to present our house in the best possible fashion and condition to appeal to the majority.
The pictures and brochures were professionally done and represented our home in the best possible light. I believe we sold our house within two weeks of listing. We had multiple competitive offers. The negotiations were professionally done and the transition was smooth and fast.
I would highly recommend
as a real estate agent.

We met with several brokers, including all of the usual suspects in Lakeview/Lincoln Park, but decided to go with
Chicago Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
. He seemed to have the best input on pricing, and came prepared to our first meeting with more than just sales comps - he was knowledgeable about the historic nature of the home, the local neighborhood, local sales trends, and had excellent and well thought-out answers to my questions. We were also pleased that

and

knew that there was going to be significant interest during the first open house, and so made sure to have an extra realtor on hand during the open house. It turned out that the additional person was very much needed. We had three offers on the home within 24 hours of the open house, and were able to consummate a closing within 35 days. We couldn't be happier with

's efforts, approach, costs, and responsiveness.

We used several different online home
Chicago Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
engines when we were deciding which home to purchase, and we found Redfin to be the most intuitive. We found a few condos we wanted to see in person, so contacted Redfin to set-up a showing. After looking at several home, we finally found the right one for us.
The condo was listed on Monday morning, and we immediately let Redfin know that we wanted to see the new listing ASAP. We were able to get the only viewing appointment available that evening, and liked the home so much we made an offer that night. Our offer was accepted and we are moving into our new home in a few weeks.
Redfin was great for us to work with because we knew what we wanted and were carefully tracking new listings. They were responsive to our requests for showings, but they did not go out of their way to identify other properties we might like. We didn't mind this because we preferred to look over the details of potential home online and wanted to select what was appealing to us ourselves - we didn't need any hand-holding, and appreciated that Redfin agents weren't at all pushy with properties we "might" like.
In addition to getting the home of our dreams, we are also getting a refund from Redfin since our property qualifies for their fantastic refund program, so we will be able to get several thousand dollars off our closing costs. It's truly a good deal.

were paid $21,330 including a $5,000 bonus to perform their duties as professional licensed real estate brokers. As part of the transaction they operated in a "power of attorney" mode for the buyer during the closing and signed/took possession of a $3,500 security deposit check that was required to be returned to the tenant of the rental property within 30 days (she moved out when it was sold).

Chicago Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
, as the senior KW agent/office representative did nothing to support us. He purposely sat on the sidelines and took no responsibility. After we finally settled because neither the buyer or myself wanted the headache I nicely & professionally asked

to pay for my final bill from my lawyer (~$3,800) using the $5,000 bonus money he was paid. Basically, he/his office failed to perform their duties (bordering on gross incompetence) but he still felt he was entitled to not only the 2.5% standard payment but also the $5,000 bonus on top. To summarize
Chicago Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked

IN SUMMARY:

- COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT & UNETHICAL. DO NOT HIRE.

If you are not familiar with the model, it is worth a visit to redfin.com.
With Redfin, you do a lot of the legwork. You choose the properties that you would like to see, etc. The benefit is that some of the real estate commission is rebated to you after closing.
My experience was certainly satisfactory based upon my understanding of the model.
Chicago Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
Chesne, my agent, was good to have in my corner. He had an eye for properties and was able to bring things to my attention during tours.
The only downside is that I was left to coordinate much of the activities necessary for closing: attorney, lender, home inspection, etc. I'm not sure that I'd do it again this way, but I certainly knew what I was getting myslef into ahead of time.
Check out redfin. If the model appeals to you, I recommend their agents - particularly

Chesne.

We found

via Angie's List. Our first meeting was at a nearby @

office. He was professional, personable and knowledgeable. He asked probing questions to gauge our interests, experiences and expectations. We were first time buyers and wanted a multi-unit building, rather than a condo or single family home.
Chicago Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
cautioned us on what we were taking on given us being "first timers". He ran thru various scenarios and options to make sure we had thought it through. We appreciated this friendly "grilling".
After the initial meeting, we starting looking at listings and sent

short lists of places to visit. We had very specific desires for location, price and features. There were very few listings that met what we wanted.
Chicago Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
would encourage us to expand our expectations, to consider compromises some things. This was always presented in a reasonable, supportive way. He was a font of useful knowledge when looking at

, explaining the +'s and -'s.
Eventually we found a place that seemed to be a strong fit: an old two-flat in Uptown/Andersonville that needed some TLC but was in solid shape.

During our initial consultation,

was extremely prepared with area comps and his thoughts on where we might price our condo. We had been renting it out for 7 years and still had renters living in the condo when we put in on the

.
Chicago Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
gave us good recommendations on how to stage with renters in the condo and was great about communicating directly with them when it came time for showings. With both of us working full time, juggling kid's school/activities, and not living close to the condo we were trying to sell,
Chicago Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
really helped take care of things we didn't have time to deal with. Once our renters moved out, he recommended a cleaning service and took care of arranging the details, including meeting them there. He also recommended an excellent staging company to help with the sales process, once our tenants moved out. Again, he took care of all the details and arrangements and oversaw the move-in of staging furniture. Once we used the staging company, we had an offer in just a few weeks. He prepared excellent marketing materials with amazing photography, which is an important tool Additionally, he shared detailed notes on all the showings. During the offer negotiation process, he was able to get us to where we wanted to be.

was extremely responsive throughout the selling process, from the very beginning to the final phases. I would not hesitate to recommend
Chicago Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
as a realtor and would use him again.

I first met with
Chicago Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
on 2/12, having identified him on Angie's list as my top choice. He helped me through the apartment prep, photos, price-setting, listing, showing. It was listed 2/25 and I had three offers (and more in the wings) and a signed contract 2/27-cash offer, $20k above asking, closing on my schedule (in early June)! Associated attorneys have been great to work with (all via email). I trust the rest of the process will go as smoothly!
