Bought a home in 2014.

My fiance and I were in the market for buying our first property a few short months ago and needed to decide on a broker that would not only have our best interests in order but also have the patience we knew one would need while working with us. We wanted to be completely sure when buying a place, and were willing to see probably way more places than any broker would ideally like to show. After hearing about a few stellar recommendations from mutual friends, we decided to go with Matt Laricy.

From the start, Matt put our anxieties at ease. We had a high level meeting in his company's Chicago office and discussed what to be prepared for going forward. Matt took an incredible amount of notes, ranging from locations and price range, to our 'deal breakers' and dream requests. Perhaps most importantly, Matt referred to us all as one team going forward, and he vowed to do everything in his power to make our first home purchase as smooth as possible.

Searching for homes went shorter than expected, as Matt posted new properties in our price range and location desires to our online folder daily. We were able to choose the ones we wanted to see and Matt and his team would schedule them for when we were able to free up some time from work to go walk through them. Throughout this whole process, we knew Matt was not in this to make a sale, he was in this to find us our dream property. We saw a few properties that Matt said 'Even if you wanted to, I wouldn't let you buy this place.' He cited recent comparable units, problems with the building, resale value, potential future upgrade issues, etc. He is truly a master of his craft and was proving to us that we truly were all on the same team.

We finally decided on a 2 Bedroom in River North / River West that was perfect for all of our needs, but slightly above our price range. Here is when the real fun began, as Matt's negotiation skills came out in full force. After a tug of way on price for a few weeks, as well as threatening to walk away, we were able to both agree on a price. However, when our appraisal came in low, Matt put his foot down and eventually got a total of 10% off of the buyer's original asking price.

The closing process could not have been easier for us with Matt, however we could not say the same for our financing. Our mortgage firm had a few setbacks internally, and we were worried that their firm issues would cause our financing to stall, or at worst fall through. Matt was able to not only contact our mortgage firm, but also to keep them on track on a daily basis. We ended signing the papers and moving in 48 hours later to our beautiful new home.

I highly recommend Matt Laricy for all of your real estate needs. He will always keep your best interests at heart, and will do everything in his power to get your everything that you could possibly desire. He is honest, incredibly hard working, and as I mentioned earlier, a true master of his craft. I will be using Matt for all future real estate transactions and anyone reading this would be wise to do the same.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Printers Row, Chicago, IL.

We just closed on our home today and I am here writing a review for Matt! He has been brilliant and I honestly can't imagine going through our first home purchase as easily as we did had it not been for Matt.

Right from the start, he has been honest and upfront, tells you things as they are, no bs. He gives you his opinions but lets you make your own decisions. The "hunt" was fun as well because you always have a great conversation!

Once we made a decision on a home, he was great with the negotiation process! We are happy with the way it went and the price we paid - I think it was fair.

When it comes to all the processes for closing on the home, his referrals to the various parties involved (lender, attorney, inspector, et al) are extremely helpful.

A special mention for processes and follow ups - haven't seen anything like it. He is always on top of everything and you won't have to wait for more than 5-10 minutes to get a response to your email!

Highly recommend him!

Sold a home in 2014.

Matt did a fantastic job listing and selling my property. The entire process was extremely smooth and professional. Most importantly, Matt was able to sell the property above the asking price in less than a week. He demonstrated deep understanding of the local market and open, honest with his opinions about the property's value. I would highly recommend Matt to anybody looking for an agent in Chicago and will certainly use him again if the need arises.  More Less
