Sold a Condo home in 2015 in Kilbourn Park, Chicago, IL.

My fiancé and I worked with Matt to close on our first home. He was referred to me by two of my coworkers who had both used him in the past. They had great experiences working with him and we felt the same and would definitely recommend him to anyone, especially first-time buyers. We were new at this, unfamiliar with a lot of the closing details, and wanted to make sure we made the right move. He told us his honest opinion about various properties, if they would be good investments, etc. which was nice, because we had no clue what stuff should cost or what a good price would be. Matt was also really accommodating with our schedules. We looked at quite a few properties, in quite a few blizzards, and only ever in the evenings since we both work full time. Matt made it happen on Sundays (including Superbowl Sunday), evenings, etc and was also really accessible via text, email, and any time we ever called. The cherry on top is that he brought us a BALLER bottle of champagne at close. I can’t imagine a better way to kick off our first night in our first home than with some fancy champs! Such a pleasant surprise :) We will definitely be recommending Matt Laricy to friends who are also starting the home buying process!

Sold a Multi Family home in 2015 in Old Town Triangle, Chicago, IL.

Matt and his firm were everything we could hope for when we sold our condo in Lincoln Park. He was very accommodating and available to us 24/7. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in Chicago. Matt also keeps in regular contact about correspondence between buyer and seller. His advice was invaluable to us.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $225K in West Loop Gate, Chicago, IL.

If you selling in the city of Chicago; Matt Laricy is your Agent. Matt stays on top of every part of the transaction, and follows through to make sure the transaction goes very effortless. His knowledge of the market is best in the city by a long shot. He is straight forward and will just say what you want to hear. It was a pleasure to work with Matt and his team.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Fulton River District, Chicago, IL.

I could not be more satisfied with the services provided by Matt Laricy in helping me purchase my first home. From our initial meeting, he demonstrated professionalism, thoughtfulness, and an ability to gauge my preferences and cater his services accordingly. When we began viewing residences, he arranged viewings at my convenience, and he anticipated all of my questions, providing pertinent, nuanced information about each place such as utility costs, quality of construction, neighborhood information, resale value, etc. Furthermore, he was immediately responsive to my calls, emails, and texts, and he always gave me honest answers even if he knew they would conflict with my personal game plan. I never doubted that his aim was always to ensure I made the smartest decision available.

I would recommend Matt to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. It is difficult for me to imagine how a client could have a better experience with an agent.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $350K in West Town, Chicago, IL.

My husband and I were very pleased with the experience we had with Matt Laricy and his group. Matt was a great agent. He is very knowledgeable about all of the current trends in the market, and had very good advice on strategies we needed to do to help sell our condo. He always responded quickly any time we had a question or request. He made sure to send us weekly emails on all "activity" of our listing for our condo, and made sure we were in the loop on any updates or inquiries. Great service. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy a home!

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Avondale, Chicago, IL.

My wife and I could not be happier with our experience working with Matt. Expecting our first child and buying our first place we were nervous about what we were in for, but Matt quickly put us at ease. He was great through every step of the process and made sure we knew what to expect. Matt was quick to answer any question, no matter how big or small or time of day. My favorite thing about working with Matt was his knowledge and honesty. Every property we looked at he did a great job at pointing out good/bad things that helped us find the perfect condo for our family.

Sold a Other home in 2015 in Near North, Chicago, IL.

I did not expect the top agent to get back to me right away but Matt did. Others took days or weeks. We had a combo, downtown unit with an unusual floor plan hence, difficult sale and the Laricy team made it happen. We could not be more happy with this group. They were professional, used daily computer generated feedback regarding the showings and more. The five stars are well deserved!

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Roscoe Village, Chicago, IL.

Matt is a consummate professional whom I'd highly recommend for your purchase or sale. Matt helped me find a condo in Lakeview that I'm very happy with. Throughout the process, Matt offered valuable guidance and insight, which I sorely needed as a first-time home buyer. My favorite was probably, "a condo/home purchase is a series of trade offs; what are you willing to compromise?" From Matt's experience, he was able to quickly read the situation during visits of new places and point out any strengths or flaws, including the relative value of the updates (if any) had been installed. Throughout this process, I felt Matt had my best interests at heart and his ultimate goal was to find a place I was happy with.

Matt integrates technology, utilizing Google Docs, electronic scheduling, electronic signatures for contract documentation, and Matt is always available and very responsive, day or night, via email, phone call, or text. Literally, any time he isn't sleeping. (Matt emailed me from both his vacation in the Bahamas and his work holiday party on a Friday night.) However, Matt has the awareness to make a phone call (in lieu of text) when urgency or sensitivity requires it.

Overall, I strongly recommend Matt Laricy for your next purchase or sale. You'll be very satisfied.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Logan Square, Chicago, IL.

Matt was an absolute pleasure to deal with and offered top-notch customer service the entire way. I was referred to Matt by a very good friend who said he had a great experience and I’m glad we were connected. There’s literally nothing negative I can think to say but I’d like to provide examples of what you can expect when working with Matt. - He will be the one dealing with you 99% of the time. Matt is a workaholic and ensures that he is available whenever you need him. There were some events I didn’t even expect him to show up since they were minor tasks but Matt was there. - He is a trusted advisor. Matt is not here to help buy you a property, he is here to help you buy the RIGHT property. Matt will educate you on what elements you should look for such as location, resale potential, rental potential etc. to meet your needs. He at no point pressured me into anything but what I really appreciated was his candor. When I wanted to check out certain properties he was willing but he told me his honest opinion up front. - Matt guides you through the entire process. I felt as if I had clear guidance and direction throughout the entire process. He made me well aware of times I need to be on point with timing as well as times when I could relax and let the process progress. I was always aware of what was occurring and what insights I needed to pay attention to. - Matt has a great network to leverage. Matt makes it very clear he wants you to choose who you want to work with but can provide recommendations when needed. I worked with an appraiser, lawyer and mortgage lender that Matt recommended and everything was completely smooth. Matt is a very successful agent and there is clear indication to this. The people he recommends are also successful experienced and have the ability to negotiate low rates as well as streamline processes. Matt also is well known with other agents who also help expedite the process due to familiarity. You may be hesitant at first but in reality this is advantageous to you as a buyer. It’s a well-oiled machine but with a sense that your needs are important. Matt and his organization is simply a class act. There is good reason Matt and his group have enjoyed much success. When it comes down to it, they are just plain awesome. I couldn't have asked for a better experience especially given the fact I am a first time home buyer. At the end of the day, it’s all about trust and Matt is someone I trust now and will trust in the future. I will be recommending him to friends much like my friend recommended him to me.
