Team reviews

Michael is a long time family friend so when it was time for us to sell our house and start our retirment in S Carolina he was who we called. Michael knows all the ins and out of real-estate. The lady who bought our house used michael as well. Even though our closing was the same day as our closing on our new house in SC. Michael made it posiable for us to be in SC to sign on our new house as Vickie was signing on our Fox Lake house. What a wonderful experience Thank You Michael for helping us live our dream .

Pat & Connie, Thank you for the testimonial. Glad we were able to get over all the hurdles and close that deal. I know Vicki loves the home and I'm glad things are going well for you in South Carolina. (On days like this I'm a little jealous)

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in North Chicago, IL.

top notch job from the start to the finish, his team is number one in my books, they had an offer on the house within 2 days of listing it (very pleased with the offer) and finalized the deal 30 days after it was listed...amazing job

We were very pleased to work with the Pattons and happy that we were able to get one of the highest sale prices in the area due to the care they took of their home over many years.

He was very helpful and sold the home in a month with a good price. He was very quick in dealing with the house. I was a distance from the home that was sold and he handled everything very efficiently.

Michael Lescher helped me get the best price for my home. He was always available and was there for me every step of the way. He even helped me get a reasonably priced lawyer. He knows the area and the market value. I highly recommend Michael Lescher if you are buying or selling a home in the area.

Bought a home in 2011 in Colby Point, Pistakee Highlands, IL 60050.

I can not even count the number of houses Michael Lescher set up for us to see. I really don't know how many agents would have lasted with us. The house we finally purchased was a short sale. We first saw this house a yr. ago. Too many houses in-between to count. We would call Michael in the morning and say hey we would like to see these houses can you set up for the afternoon, and as many as he could we had appointments. If he does not answer his cell - guaranteed he will call back very shortly. Michael was a driving force with the listing agent to help move this sale along. We knew there was nothing short about a short sale, but Michael did manage to help us over all hurdles we encountered. Michael is very familiar with the area we were looking in. If we came across something he was not sure of - we were confident that he (Michael) would get the correct info for us. Both my husband and I would highly reccommend Michael Lescher as an agent. It goes without saying if we were in the market to buy a house Michael would be our agent! Liane and Frank B

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2011 in Fox Lake, IL.

When I decided to sell my lakefront home in July 2011, I contacted and interviewed four Lake County realtors who evaluated my home and suggested a list price. All of the realtors offered approximately the same range for home pricing, services, listing sites (online, MLS, etc.), and advertising media. Michael, however, distinguished himself from the others on several counts. I listed my home with him in mid-July. He exhibited extraordinary knowledge of the history and current situation in the housing market. He serves as the corporate vice president of ReMax Showcase. His entire support team, office staff and Real Estate Attorney, proved to be very professional, competent, and I enjoyed working with them. All provided excellent, prompt, friendly service. Michael presented me with a contract offer on my home on July 27 after 8 buyer showings. At this point his intelligence and eloquence as a negotiator proved invaluable. All realtors offer virtually the same services, but a few of these are unique to the best in this business. The ability to negotiate a successful contract is vital and this is one of Michael’s greatest talents. His tenacity came to bear in researching and finding examples of a number of comparable home sales that supported the asking price. His persistence and business savvy resulted in a signed contract on August 4. Much to my delight, the sell price was higher than I (and the other 3 realtors I interviewed a month before) had expected. Closing on my property was successfully completed September 14. My entire experience with Michael as my realtor was excellent. His calm, steadfast demeanor, exceptional communication skills and business acumen enabled me to make informed decisions with confidence throughout the process. Michael is a pleasure to work with and I recommend him highly, without reservation, as a listing or selling Real Estate professional.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Antioch, IL.

We had an excellent experience with Michael Lescher and would highly recommend him as an agent. Michael has a great deal of knowledge, expertise, and experience in his field and immediately responds to all inquiries from beginning to end. He listened to our needs and assisted us in property selection, negotiation, and closing issues. Michael is involved with his community which gives him additional expertise that is very valuable. We are so happy with our purchase last spring and have no doubts that we made the right decision. Michael Lescher is a dedicated agent who will be there for you during the entire process. We couldn't think of a better agent to contact!

Steve, Thanks for the recommendation. Yours was a short sale that required special attention to bring it to a successful closing. You handled your end well. I'm glad you were pleased with my services. All's well that ends well.
