Quote to Live By

The platinum rule – “treat others how THEY want to be treated.” (Tristen’s Father)

"We have listed and bought through Travis and he was truly a pleasure and easy to work with. He was able to get max value out of our listing and helped us through a challenging process of finding a larger home for our growing family. He showed extreme patience and found us a gem in which we currently reside. I would recommend him to any friend or stranger thinking about purchasing or selling a home."

"Riely represented me on a condo purchase in the Gold Coast. He was incredibly thoughtful and knowledgable about the process and also unfailingly responsive (as a first time buyer I needed a fair amount of guidance and information). Riely's professionalism was especially on display at my closing  when the seller's agent surprised us with some extremely unethical curve balls in the purchase. It was stressful and upsetting but Riely kept his cool the entire time, handled it like a true pro, and made sure I left the closing table taken care of. I would use him again without hesitation and recommend him to anyone buying or selling in Chicago."

"Casey was so helpful in finding my husband and I a new home! She has great knowledge of the city and knew what areas would fit what we were looking for. She really knew how to make the process fun and so much less stressful for us. We will certainly use Casey again and I will be recommending her to  all my friends!"

"I recently bough my first condo, and Sam was phenomenal to work with. He was great at setting up showings on short notice and was always organized and on-time to the showings. Most importantly, Sam really helped by introducing me to a variety of lenders, attorneys, inspectors, etc, but never pressured me to actually use any of them. Lastly, he did a great job of seeing the transaction through and staying on various parties (attorneys, closing company) when it seemed like things were slowing down. I'd strongly recommend Sam to anyone looking to rent or buy."

"Sean is the best! This is third time I’ve worked with him on a move. I highly recommend him; he’s professional, reliable, and client-focused. I have a long list of “must haves” when it comes to housing, and he manages to find the perfect spot for me every time."
