Team reviews

Tom was very knowledgeable with the area and quick in responding to our communications via phone, email, and texts late at night. I trusted Tom's expert opinion and never doubted him. I was grateful to have him on my side of the negotiation table. I would definitely recommend Tom for any future real estate transactions to my friends and family. A++++

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in Elmhurst, IL.

Very easy to work with. Suggestions for preparing the house were instrumental in a quick sale. The technology they have made it easy to schedule showings and communicate feedback.

Bought a home in 2014 in Westchester, IL 60154.

Maria and everyone at @Properties were great - helpful - accommodating our schedule - willing to go anywhere and see whatever we wanted - great communication with us and with homeowner and their realtor.

Then Maria gave excellent advice about attorney, mortgage company, and services needed (paint, carpet, etc.)!

Maria made our move go smoothly from start to finish.
