Team reviews

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.

Matt was a wonderful partner in my search for an investment property. He was responsive, honest and collaborative and I found him excellent to work with. I will use him again and would highly recommend him to anyone considering a property purchase.

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.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $325K in University Village - Little Italy, Chicago, IL.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience working with Matt in selling our home. He and his team were very professional and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. He knew our area very well and his whole team was very well experienced. We could not have been more pleased!

Bought a home in 2015 in Near North, Chicago, IL 60654.

After reading all of the great reviews about Matt & his team, we decided to give him a call to start the process of finding a condo in Chicago. Matt was on vacation in California, but he still got back to me almost immediately. Since we didn't know a single thing about the market or communities, we relied on Matt to help us find the location that made the most sense for us and then he was able to zero in the building that met our expectations. His knowledge and no nonsense approach made it possible for us to find a unit and place an offer in one day. He and his team stayed involved and were available to help from that first phone call to post-closing. Highly recommend!!

Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Lathrop Homes, Chicago, IL.

We spoke with a few other agents when we began looking for our first purchase in Chicago. Matt was far and above more professional and had more knowledge of the market than any other the other agents we dealt with. When we found the right place the owners already had multiple offers in-hand. He worked with the other realtor and helped us avoid a multiple bid situation. As it goes we ran into hiccups throughout the process, but he made navigating the bumps much less painful. Highly recommended.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Old Town, Chicago, IL.

I'll second the awesome reviews Matt receives on here, and as a first time homebuyer, he was extremely attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful in the process. Having a lower budget relative what one could spend in downtown Chicago, you might think my priorities would fall behind others, or I may be pressured into spending more; not at all with Matt! His responses were generally within minutes, and he was fully supportive of my interests (using caution along the way to warn of potential risks in the process). I found a perfect fit in the fourth place I looked at; Matt was quick to put in my offer and convince the seller (by owner) to accept within days, with multiple offers on the table. No counter offer!!! He's truly a fighter and will go to bat for you, regardless of your spend, history, or knowledge in the market.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $450K in West Town, Chicago, IL.

I went through three other brokers before a friend recommended Matt to me. After searching for homes with other brokers for two years and finding nothing, Matt helped me find the perfect place in two months. His expansive knowledge and ability to intuit precisely what I cared about was the sine qua non of buying a place. Responses from Matt and his team were extremely fast, and all documents were fastidiously organized via Google Docs. Matt has an incredible depth and breadth of inside knowledge, which is absolutely necessary in the current competitive buying environment. He guided me towards an offer price that was just barely over the other offers on the property. All in all, an extremely smooth first home purchase. I would recommend Matt to all of my friends, family, and colleagues.

Thanks Annie! I am glad this worked out. The whole foods in the bottom of the building is huge. Now after your late nights at the office, you can still have time to grab some dinner!
