Ratings & Reviews

I recently worked with Matt Laricy to purchase a condo in the Chicago area. I was a first time homeowner and didn’t know a lot about the process. Matt met with me initially and explained the procedure to me so I would know what to expect. He also asked me what I was looking for and what the most important things were to me in a condo. When we actually went out to look at places, he took me to ones that fit my requirements and my price range. I was trying to find a condo in a short time frame and wasn’t sure if that would be possible. But Matt’s prompt responses and availability helped me find the perfect place for me. I appreciated the fact that Matt would tell me what he thought a place was worth based on his knowledge of the Chicago area and the various buildings. Matt also explained everything to me and kept me informed every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 in University Village - Little Italy, Chicago, IL.

Matt Laricy and his group are simply - the BEST!!! Selling property is stressful but Matt, Catherine and Amy were there for me every step of the way. I don't think any of them sleep! I'm convinced that Matt is the only realtor in the Chicago area who attended, paid attention, and passed the realtor's exams with flying colors. I had 14 showings in less than 2 weeks and 3 offers - If I was ever to sell again - Matt's the man! Thanks for everything.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $400K in South Loop, Chicago, IL.

Matt did amazing job helping my husband and I find our dream home. We want to sell our old home and change to a bigger home at same location. We contacted Matt and he responded fast. He asked about the size that we try to buy and the budget. Then he kept sending us the properties in the market every day. Selling and buying at same time was stressful. Matt arranged the process very well. He found a professional photographer take pictures of our home and listing it on many websites and he also set up an open house. After each show he gave us feedback very soon. At the same time, we picked up some properties we are interested and told Matt, he asked us convenient time and arranged to show the properties. When showing, he told us the pro and con of each individual property, no pushing at all. After one month we got an offer with reasonable price and we gave an offer the next day! Even that was holiday season, Matt never delay any steps of the selling and buying. He recommend very good inspector with good price. He recommended reliable attorney and loan officer. With the help of attorney and loan officer he recommended, our purchasing process was smoothly. Matt helped us to set our sell and buy to close at same day. Each week, he reviewed to both buyer and seller to make sure both side at the same page. Every time we emailed him he replied immediately and he was very patient for any questions. Within 3 months, our dream of having a new bigger home comes true! Without Matt's effort and hard work, it could not be so quick and so smoothly. Each time we communicated with him, we can feel how he dedicate for being a property broker and he knows very well about the property market. His support staff and associate brokers were professional and helpful as well. We definitely will recommend Matt to any friends buying/selling home.

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

The service Matt and his team provided was above and beyond. I recently sold and purchased my condo with Matt and his team. Matt was able to sell my condo before it hit the market and worked to get me a great deal on my new place. There was constant communication and he kept everything very well organized. Whenever I had a question about the process Matt and his team was quick to reply. I can’t thank him enough for all his hard work. I highly recommend Matt and his team as they kept our sellers agent organized as well to make sure they were meeting their deadlines.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Bucktown, Chicago, IL.

From the get-go, Matt was easy to get ahold of and very responsive, responding to calls / texts even late on weekend nights. Matt and his team sent out weekly updates, looping in my attorney and banker as to keep my involvement / follow-up between the three to a minimum. Matt gave excellent advice through the negotiation process as well as items that came about from the inspection process, which made me feel comfortable with the various decisions that had to be made. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a good agent in the Chicago area.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Near North, Chicago, IL.

Being out of state buyers, we were apprehensive about our pending job search. We didn't need to be so with Matt Laricy as our realtor. From the initial stages of our job search from Texas, Matt was informative, patient and honest. As a result, because he listened to our needs and wants, he was able to find a perfect home for us in the perfect location on our first trip to Chicago. We would not hesitate to recommend Matt Laricy for his outstanding customer service. This was by far the smoothest real estate transaction we ever had. Fabrizio and Lisa Gatti

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

I reached out to Matt after my previous realtor had dropped the ball on a few properties that I was interested in. Everything I read about Matt suggested that he was one of the better brokers in Chicago, and after working with him, I couldn't agree more. He walked me through the whole buying process like a true pro- answering all of my stupid newbie questions and annoying emails at all hours of the day. Even if he was busy, he would always at least manage a quick "short answer" text or email and offer to explain in greater detail later. With the way the real estate market is right now, you need someone who is super type A, totally on top of everything, and always a text away. And Matt is that guy. Honestly I don't even think he sleeps. He was also very honest in terms of finding the right property. If a place sucked, he told me it sucked. He knew all of the right questions to ask to make sure the property was both right for me and a good investment, and he wasn't pushy at all. When it came time to pull the trigger, Matt knew exactly how much to offer, and ended up saving me over $20k on the price of the house. His support staff and associate brokers were professional and helpful as well. I would strongly recommend Matt to any first time home buyer, and I'm sure he would be great for repeat buyers too.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $725K in River North, Chicago, IL.

I am relocating to Chicago from a great distance and working with Matt was amazingly easy. His thorough knowledge of the city, the neighborhoods I was interested in and the latest technologies and apps helped us stay in communication throughout the process. Matt is a great listener and critical questioner. He heard what I wanted and helped me refine my search to find just the right place. AND QUICKLY! I never felt rushed, and always had Matt's time, which was a gift, given that Matt is one of the most successful realtors in Chicago. I highly recommend Matt!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Jefferson Park, Chicago, IL.

SUMMARY: The best in Chicago -- hands down. Think small (boutique): they’ll help you dream big. I highly recommend Matt Laricy (and The Matt Laricy Group). I have never met someone who works as hard, is a step ahead of everyone, and who has won so many top realtor awards in Chicago year after year. Matt will give you 210% effort and make things happen. Don’t be fooled by professionals who say they sell and close a lot of deals – go to Matt’s website to see pictures of many deals his company closes (DAILY). Matt’s company uses cutting edge technology and he personally understands Chicago’s real estate unlike anyone else you will meet. You won’t be disappointed after meeting Matt and his team. I rate the service and experience with 5 stars. I highly recommend Matt to ANYONE who is looking to work with one of the most professional and best people in the business. Matt turned me into a true believer that your agent can make the world of a difference and get you an amazing deal. Even when I thought my deal would not have a likely chance of closing – Matt turned things around and achieved the unthinkable. He has positively influenced my life going forward by getting me the perfect house in this competitive market. After my first discussion with Matt, I felt confident that he would give the most effort to ensure that I would find my perfect home. He came through on his word and did just that. Matt did an amazing job of asking what my purchase requirements were, clearly defined the expectations, and explained what was required from beginning until end. I felt like he was on my side the entire process and he did everything in his power to ensure that the deal was a great success. Additionally, his team did an amazing job to support every client and they truly made me file like I was the most important client. Matt worked extremely well with my bank, the seller's realtor, and both lawyers. Matt was always a step ahead and led the entire process and all communications. Any time I called Matt he was always available or would return my calls in less than one hour. He is always available on email and responds right away. I know that my deal closed so quickly and successfully because of Matt’s effort and hard work. His communication was frequent, and weekly status updates reduced my stress and anxiety. Matt's level of service far exceeded my expectations. Thanks for a job well done, Matt, and I look forward to your services in the future.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $500K in River North, Chicago, IL.

Matt did an amazing job for my fiance and me!!! Matt is very straight to the point, honest, literally the most responsive person I've ever met and worked extremely well around my fiance's and my demanding schedules. His knowledge of the area (River North) was unmatched compared to all the other realtors we interviewed. Matt was always available and we wouldn't have been able to navigate the area and Chicago real-estate landscape without him. Whenever we had questions or issues with any other party in the transaction (attorneys, mortgage brokers, etc.) Matt would immediately address the situation on our behalf, a benefit that was invaluable to our process. We have since recommended him to three other people who have all had similar experiences. Go with Matt, you won't regret it!!!!!
