Ratings & Reviews

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!!!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in West Town, Chicago, IL.

Matt was great in helping my husband and I find our dream home. He is professional, detail oriented and always available to answer any questions you have. His advice was honest and he never pushed us to do anything we would not be happy with. I definitely will recommend Matt to any friends looking for a home but we will also be using him to buy/sell in the future!

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $525K in East Ukrainian Village, Chicago, IL.

My husband and I are first time home buyers. From the moment we first met with Matt we felt like we were in good hands. He was incredibly helpful at explaining the process every step of the way. We were really comfortable working with him because it was clear that he knew what he was doing. Matt made it a fun experience and we never felt overwhelmed. We will definitely recommend him to any of our friends who are in the market to buy!

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

My husband and I decided we were sick of renting and wanted to buy our first condo in the South Loop. We had no clue what steps to take so we searched reviews online and contacted Matt Laricy to guide us through the process. We are so happy we did because he walked us through every step without making us feel like the first-timers we are! He was very specific, never showed us anything out of our price range, was never pushy and he communicated with us regularly about what was going on. It took us a while to find our home but he was very patient and never gave up. We just closed last week and received a very generous housewarming gift from Matt. He was a class act every step of the way and we would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.

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 Condo 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 for approximately $450K 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.
