Team reviews

Great Experience! Great Realtor! I was an out-of-state buyer for a condo in Chicago. I had no personal references for Matt, instead, I relied on the online reviews. I had a great buying experience. Matt accommodated my last minute schedule, met with me personally, and provided valued advice. His staff was great, professional and responsive. I understand I was an entry-level buyer for an investment income condo, yet I was never treated second-rate. He was always available and got the job done. His professional referrals for mortgage broker and attorney were top-notched as well. I feel fortunate to have found Matt online. He did a great job representing me as the buyer and I would highly recommend him to others looking for a realtor in the Chicago area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.025M in Old Town, Chicago, IL.

We are so happy to have Matt as our agent; He is very professional and savvy on what he has been doing. We looked through many listed properties during over 2 months period. As said by others, Matt is always patient and supportive, providing excellent points and advise not only to the property, but also during each step of the process. We completely feel comfortable with sense of secure working with Matt. Thank Matt very much to find our dream home in a super hot market. I am still wondering if it is true even with the keys to our home in hand. I can not say that I look forward to working with Matt in the near future, since We really want to keep our home for a while; but Matt absolutely will be one to look for to find your dream home! Thank you very much!!

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

If you are working with anyone else, you are doing yourself a HUGE disservice. Simply put, Matt is the best. There is not a doubt in my mind that anyone else knows the Chicago real estate market better than Matt. He will do everything in his power and work with his vast network around the city to get you the exact property you desire. There isn't anyone better, no question. Thank you, Matt. Thank you thank you thank you.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $475K in Streeterville, Chicago, IL.

Matt is extremely knowledgeable, which was invaluable to us as first-time homebuyers. It makes a big difference to have someone in your corner who patiently explains every step of the process. His experience was evident as whenever we mentioned a property name, he was instantly able to tell us all the details of that property. His greatest value-add is his advice, and he will tell you exactly what you need to know with candor. His recommendations are always thoughtful and grounded in his ample knowledge and experience. Thanks to his (and his team's) responsiveness and organization, we felt in good hands throughout.

Bought a home in 2015 in Humboldt Park, Chicago, IL 60622.

My husband and I enjoyed working with Matt to find our new home. We were first time homebuyers, and Matt helped to us better understand the process and what to expect. As we went to showings, he helped us to narrow down our search criteria, and was very candid about the pros / cons for each place we visited – which my husband and I appreciated. Overall, Matt was incredibly knowledgeable throughout the process, and VERY responsive (typically responding to any questions / concerns within the hour). We would highly recommend him to others.

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

Matt has an excellent sense of market values and gave us great advice on how to price and market our home. When we began the process, we had somewhat unrealistic expectations of what we could sell our condo for, and Matt provided alot of useful market data and analysis to properly position our property. As a result, it sold relatively quickly compared to similar units for sale in the same building. Yet, we did not have the feeling that we had left money on the table. Matt is an excellent broker who was very knowledgable and attentive throughout the process.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.225M in West Town, Chicago, IL.

This was the second experience we used Matt Laricy. He sold us our place, and since we outgrew it, we needed him to list it. He sold our Lincoln Park condo for above ask before it even hit the market. We also needed to buy a place, and we wanted something new in the hot West Town area. Matt was able to secure us a brand new house by one of the hottest builders (Noah) before it even hit the market. His connections with other agents made the selling/buying process very smooth. The market is very competitive, and he made it seem easy for us. Selling and buying at the same time can be very stressful, but Matt was always available to talk to us and calm us down, no matter what day or time it was. We would definitely use Matt again in the future and will recommend him to everyone we know.

Thanks Mike & Katie. I am glad we were able to pull of the double sale pretty smooth. Lots of moving parts, but in the end, we got a great price for your condo, and got you an amazing new house. Cant wait for the housewarming party!

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $550K in Lake View, Chicago, IL.

Matt is a rare kind of realtor. He strikes a perfect balance between respecting your wishes while at the same time being totally honest if you are doing (or not doing) something that may hurt your chances of a timely and optimal sale. He is extremely knowledgeable and well-informed about every step of the process. We ended up selling for a price at the upper end of our expected range, and we were only on the market for a total of 13 days. We listened to Matt's recommendation to paint, stage, and get new appliances, and it paid off because there were tons of showing requests and everyone who saw it loved the unit. We are 100% certain that we more than recovered the cost via how quickly it sold and the final sale price. Not only that, but Matt is extremely proactive about getting feedback on your unit from other agents who come to showings. They all end up completing his surveys, which Matt forwards directly to you, so you see honest feedback about their and their clients' levels of interest, comments, etc. This was extremely important in noticing trends and knowing how (and, more importantly, when) to react to any recurring issues or concerns. We've worked with other realtors in the past, and haven't come across one as knowledgeable and honest as Matt, and we would highly recommend him to anyone who appreciates quality.
