We are second-time clients (but first-time sellers) of Jeff Stainer's and are equally impressed and appreciative of his hard work and dedication yet again this time around. We wanted to sell our property in a specific amount of time to avoid paying two mortgages and, without missing a beat, Jeff delivered. Our property sold very quickly and cleanly, thanks to Jeff. For example, within one phone conversation, Jeff informed us of the items that needed attention from the home inspection and he had a resolution for 100% of the issues because we ever had a moment to stress about where to seek repairs/corrections. We were impressed as we thought we'd have to take on the burden of correcting each issue, but rest assured, Jeff handled it all and in lightning speed (quality was not compromised). There was not a moment in the selling process where Jeff wasn't completely on top of things, and as was the case the first time around, he was attentive and very responsive to our questions/needs via email, phone or text. If I didn't know any better, I'd think we were Jeff's only client because his attention to detail and memory retention is impressive. We cannot say enough great things about Jeff. He's leaps and bounds ahead of the rest!

Jeff is unbelievable. He really knows his stuff. We listed our home with him and he was able to get top dollar for it. We also bought an investment property with him and he found us the most qualified tenants to rent it! I know some people hate having to pay a realtor to sell their home but Jeff is worth every penny! He did so much for us. He was always available. Always answers the phone. I see him working on Sunday nights! The guy is a workaholic. My friend is selling her house and chose another realtor. I recommended Jeff. I know she is regretting her decision. Her realtor in no way does all the things Jeff offers. Her realtor is just there to collect a paycheck. I highly recommend Jeff for any real estate transactions. He won't disappoint!
If you are searching for an agent, hands down, Jeff Stainer is your guy. We had been desperately trying to sell our investment property in Joliet for 5+ years. We had several agents represent us throughout the years but not one was able to successfully find a buyer. Summer 2012, I decided to try one more time to sell this property. I interviewed 10+ agents, read reviews and did extended research to get the right agent this time. Unfortunately, I was unable to meet with Jeff since he was out-of-town. Since I was in a rush to get an agent onboard, I signed another local agent. It was a bad decision because right after signing her, she was being careless, not responsive. I was fortunately able to terminate the contract with her within a week and immediately got in touch with Jeff. Best decision ever. Jeff is professional, knowledgeable and excellent communicator. He is a no b.s. kinda guy meaning he gets the job done. Jeff is proactive and constantly working hard. There is not one time that I was frustrated or hesitant with him - and Im a very demanding person. What I was very impressed about is no matter what time of the day it is, he always answered his phone! Heck, he was vacationing in the Bahamas and STILL answered his phone to talk about business with me. Mind you, this property was not in the best neighborhood and honestly not a high commission but he treated us and the house like a $500k house. We even had bathroom flooding issues and he cleaned it all up (I live 2 hours away).
Jeff got us a buyer within 60 days of listing the property and we just closed yesterday! He got us an amazing offer - very close to listing price. The entire process was smooth and seemless. I keep praising the guy but we are truly so thankful. We couldnt have gotten a better agent. Jeff is going to be our agent for life. Highly highly recommended.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Naperville, IL.
My husband and I came to Jeff because many other home buyers raved about him. Thanks to his help and hard work, we are now moving into our perfect home.
He is not your "typical realtor," eager to "sell us" on any place just make a commission. Ultimately, his goal was to make sure we found a home to fit our lifestyle, budget, features, etc. to make sure we would be happy with our purchase for years to come.
Jeff is very thorough, knowledgable, and dependable...We would have been SO LOST without him and could not be more thrilled to have worked with him.
You can certainly add us to Jeff Stainer's long list of happy clients and homeowners.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Plainfield, IL.
Our family relocated from Ohio and needed a Realtor who was very familiar with our targets of Naperville and Plainfield. Jeff was awesome not only with his familiarity with the area but his overall professionalism, knowledge of the market, and keen eye for features, benefits and disadvantages to the homes. He further helped make the whole process smooth from our perspective by rounding up "the dream team" of Tony Englese of American Fidelity and Steve Link for the legal work. We learned just how important that was at closing and we remain eternally grateful to these guys for getting our family into our dream home.
I interviewed a number of Realtors and right from the start we knew Jeff was the best one for our relo. He never disappointed and if you are reading this review comparing Realtors like we did, stop reading and call Jeff. He'll take care of you!
Recently Jeff Stainer was able to sell a property for me. When I was looking for a real estate agent I found the great online reviews for Jeff. After interviewing Jeff, it quickly became apparent that Jeff was the agent for me. Jeff knows his stuff, is hard working, is a very good communicator, is accessible, and most importantly is a real professional.
Jeff found a high quality buyer and negotiated a good price. I highly recommend Jeff Stainer.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Plainfield, IL.
We met Jeff mid 2011 when my wife and I were considering a move and sought the advice of a realtor. The dream of purchasing a home in the neighborhood we were seeking became a reality for us in January of 2012. With Jeff''s help we became the new owners of a beautiful ranch home and the entire adventure took approximately 6 weeks from the day the hunt began to the day we closed. Jeff made the entire experience a pleasure, not only did he exhibit a professional attitude and patience throughout our journey, he also provided several references for home inspectors, radon mitigation professionals, painters and an exceptional mortgage banker, Tony Englese, with American Fidelity Mortgage Services who made the entire financing experience seamless. In addition, Jeff was successful in leasing our former residence in approximately 1 week. We highly recommend Jeff Stainer as he is a true professional who gets the job done and is always available to help his clients.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Bolingbrook, IL.
We bought a beautiful house after working with jeff for at least 3 months. Believe me He won't let you buy a house until or unless every thing is Excellent. The guy is honest and real professional. Through the different houses (of our choices) he told/showed us the real issues with the houses. Like I remember me and my wife liked a house in North, Naperville area. That house had some structural leveling issues and Jeff showed us that by just opening the door, After opening the door, door started moving and finally comes to the close.
I highly recommand jeff ( 5 star *****), He will tell you the pros and cons of the houses and will not let you a wrong decision. Thanks jeff for searching us an excellent house.
