Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Waukegan, IL.
I am recognizing John Steel of RE/Maxx Showcase, Waukegan, IL, as the most professional, knowledgeable, dedicated and compassionate Real Estate Broker that I have ever had the priveledge to work with. He made me feel so comfortable and at ease during the entire home buying process. John continues to surpass all other Agents by contributing coutless hours to his job ensuring that his clients are satisfied. He goes above and beyond his duty as a Broker. I am fortunate to have John as my Agent. He has the buyers total interest in the forefront of his mind at all times. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $75K in Zion, IL.
John Steele has been helping our family for 3 generations. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and great at what he does. When we were looking for our first home, our price range was fairly laughable. Yet John spent so much time with us, educating us, and putting our needs first. He never tried to show us anything outside our comfort level even though the bank said we could afford more. We were looking for a fixer upper, which came with it's own struggles. Let's just say John went WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND. The time and help he gave, when obviously he wasn't getting as much out of it, we will always remember. We will only be using John as our realtor. We recommend him to literally everyone we know, because we have no doubt he will help them as much as he helped us.

It is easy to help people that are a pleasure to work with and who appreciate effort expended on their behalf. I accept the position of "Realtor for Life" gladly for clients like these.

Sold a home in 2013.
John helped us find and buy a home last year. He went above and beyond to help us find the house of our dreams. He is very knowledgeable about the houses and the area. John is with you every step of the way and even after the closing and your all settled in he contacts you to make sure there were no surprises. He also sold the house we were living in. We listed in the middle of August and he said he would have it sold by the holidays and he did. I found John to be a very honest person with a great sense of humor.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $50K in Waukegan, IL.
John was very helpful and set expectations from the beginning. The real estate market is tough for sellers right now. He did a thorough market analysis to establish the selling price. He proposed a reasonable strategy to make the house presentable for sale (not too overwhelming). He did all the required background work to make sure that the house would be sold without any last minute issues. When we received multiple offers, I appreciated his candid advice. He knows the real estate market! I will use his services again. You should call him!

Sold a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Waukegan, IL.
John marketed and sold my house in 10 days! I was out of town on vacation and he competently handled the logistics of offer, counter offer and acceptance. I can honestly say that I was headache free all the way through the closing. I highly recommend John.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 in Beach Park, IL.
John was knowledgeable and responsive from Day 1. I was not forced to sign any documents tying me down to one realtor. John stated that if he needs a contract forcing people to do business with him, then he is not doing his job properly. He was very easy to schedule showings with, and found me the home I was looking for within a couple weeks. I ended up purchasing and could not be happier. I would absolutely recommend John to anyone looking for a home, as he will bend over backwards to make sure you find what you are looking for. Overall, a very smooth and friendly transaction.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Wadsworth, IL.
John went far above and beyond in helping me sell my home. I had moved out of the house far enough away that I could not regularly attend to the home while it was being sold. There was no assistance with the property that John did not promptly offer to help with.

Bought a home in 2014.
John Steele is a great real estate agent and I would definitely refer him to all my friends and family anytime. Not only does he have a lot of knowledge about the neighborhood but also about the buying process. He also helps with lowering your taxes on your mortgage. He knows a lot of different businesses that he can refer towards fixing things in your new home. He has been there for my first home purchase and I thank him for everything that he has done for me and his time.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Antioch, IL.
John was awesome! We called him to give us a valuation of our home in preparation to sell. He let us know the best steps to take in order to make our home as desirable as possible, while also being honest about the current market and what to expect. After taking the time to do as he suggested, we put the house on the market in the second week of January. It was priced right, thanks to John, and had immediate and overwhelming interest, as well as lots of viewings. Our house was under contract in 4 DAYS!! He also took us house hunting and found our dream home on our first day out looking. He was extremely attentive and answered our questions honestly and in a timely fashion. Thanks to him and the amazing lawyer and lender he suggested, we were also able to close on the sale of our old home and purchase of our new home ON THE SAME DAY!

Bought a home in 2013.
We used John again for purchasing a property in Northern IL. He worked very hard to get the property we liked and made sure that the process stayed on track even though at times the sellers' side didn't seem like it. John works really hard and strives for nothing but excellence through his extensive knowledge of the real estate business and the local area. He has helped me with two real estate transactions now and I'm going to employ him again for help with my parent's house. If you are in need of real estate services in the Northern IL area, look no further than John Steele!!
