Don Budzyn, Broker/Available Now (11 years experience)
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Joliet, IL.
Very patient man, had no issues making himself available to show me houses. He was very knowledgable on loan processes and without that I would of never gotten the grant or loan product i got and wouldn't of gotten the house.

Don is a very knowledgable, personable guy. He responds immediately to your requests. I highly recommend him. If I need to sell my new home down the road, I will call him again for sure. He also has a geat sense of humor, which is a great bonus when you are stressed trying to buy/and or sell a home.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Channahon, IL.
Don was great to work with. He was thorough, always made himself available, and helped us find the house we wanted. He had extensive knowledge of the area, and made sure we were informed of anything that would benefit us throughout the process. We are also currently using him to sell our old house, and would recommend him to anyone.
Don is a great Realator! Very helpful on informing us on the grants available to us. He showed us many houses till we found the one right for us which was a very exciting process since we were first time home buyers. He was great to work with I would definatly reccomend using him as your Realator and I would use him again in the future.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Joliet, IL.
We used Don and could not be more pleased.
We had some past issues with credit but Don took the time to recommend a lender that was willing to look past our past. Don kept us updated on homes in our price range and was extremely patient with us.
I hope it's a long time before we have to move again, but I'll recommend him to everyone I know.
Bought a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Joliet, IL.
Don was great. He took my wife and I to many homes and was always patient with us. He would point things out that, as first time homebuyers, I wouldn't have thought of (such as while tall trees that are over the roof may provide shade in the summer, it also will block the sun from the roof meaning that the roof may stay wet longer and may eventually cause problems). He always went the extra mile for us, to the point of taking faxes from our attorney and emailing the letter to us so we would be able to receive the important information since we didn't have a fax machine.
Don was excellent to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable about Minooka and Channahon. He was always willing with very little notice to show us houses. He listened to our preferences and helped guide us (1st time home buyers). If we had a question that Don didn't have the answer to, he was excellent with finding out the answer and getting right back to us. We were very lacking with knowledge on buying a home and Don helped us to find assistance with anything we had troubles with. I would definitely recommend Don to anyone buying a home in these areas.
