Bought a home in 2014.

My spouse and I were looking at homes and randomly looked at one Phil was the agent on. First impression was great so we continued to work with him on other homes. We are very glad we did and Phil was very helpfull at pointing out homes in what we were looking for and price range. When we found our home Phil was excellent in getting us to get to see the home as we had to numerous times because it was a project home. It was very easy to work with him and will be using him for any future real estate if it ever comes up again. He was as well very knowledgable of the construction of the home which was very helpfull in this home. We are very pleased and couldn't ask for a better experience in buying our 2nd home.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Ottawa, IL.

Always was willing to show us homes in all types of weather. Worked around our schedule in order to show us the homes we wanted to see. Helped let us know how expensive a repair would be to the homes we were looking at.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $75K in Streator, IL.

We had a terrific experience with Phil Makarewicz. Phil was very professional and was always prompt with all our questions and requests. He sold our house 5 days after it was listed. He made the selling process very easy and smooth. We will definitely recommend him to anyone buying or selling their home.  More Less
