Shawn Strach's expertise was helpful when relocating my in-laws from Arizona to Mchenry, Illinois. It was scary for my in-laws to make their transition out of state, because he responded within 10 minutes to all our calls and texts and took the time with each prospective home, he made the process manageable for all of us. Despite my in-laws closing on their house months ago, Shawn still has a hand in helping with their transition. Personally, I feel confident working with businesses that give back to their communities and Shawn does this by his membership with the local Rotary Club and supporting local charities. I will never work with any other realtor. Thanks Shawn!
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $100K in Wonder Lake, IL.
Shawn went above and beyond doing everything we needed or anticipated. We ran into alot of road blocks looking for a home. We are the Murphy's Law king and queen. Between the loans and other house situations Shawn always went the xtra mile. Always responded quickly to our calls and emails and kept us informed and focused so we would not get wigged out. Thanks Shawn. The house turned out beautiful. We will have to have you come see it someday. Thanks again
I have never worked with an agent who cared more than Shawn Strach at Dream Real Estate. His knowledge of the industry, committment to my needs and desire to help sell my house was amazing. He went above an beyond the call of duty. I'm happy to have met him and now call him a friend.
Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Mchenry, IL.
I have worked with Shawn on several transactions. He does an outstanding job in paying attention to your needs. He listens, then executes. I would highly recommend Dream Real Estate if you want to secure a property, sell a property, or need a property managed.
Sold a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $275K in Woodstock, IL.
Our house was sold in 30 days, and we were able to find a new home that closed within the same week. Everything went smooth, and Dream Real Estate handled every aspect of the process flawlessly! Kudos to Shawn, and his team!! Highly recommended!
Bought a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $150K in Mchenry, IL.
I can't say enough about my very pleasant experience with Shawn at Dream Real Estate. From the moment we first began our adventure in finding the perfect home, he was honest, professional and willing to make sure I knew that he was my advocate through every single step of the overwhelming home buying process. He managed to negotiate a deal on my home that I even laughed at when he threw it out... who would have known?? I have recommended Shawn to MANY people in the area and don't think there's a better agent to work with. He's outstanding!!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2005 for approximately $350K in Wauconda, IL.
Shawn helped me buy my home in IL and it was a great experience. I had just moved from CA and didn't really know where to begin looking and he made the whole house hunting process a lot of fun. In the end, I found the house I wanted in an area that was not readily familiar to him - but that never slowed him down. In the future, when I'm ready to sell he's the one I'll call.
