Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Elgin, IL.
Primary point of contact: Miles Tischhauser
Having just moved from to the area from out of state, I was very concerned about finding the right home in an area that I was not familiar with. My wife and I have purchased and sold a home previously, and recognize the value in an agent willing to work for you. We needed that person to help us find our, “Forever Home”. The first step I took was to look over reviews of local realtors in the Elgin, IL area. I used not only Zillow, but a number of other sites and the BBB to help narrow down my list. From my shortlist, I made contact with several realtors.
One of the bigger concerns we had was finding a realtor who would be able to work with us on our schedule. I made it very clear to the each company that I spoke with that taking time off of work would not be acceptable. This guideline weeded out many promising realtors and from there I researched each company in-depth. The Kombrink team made the most compelling case and we were paired up with Miles Tischhauser, an agent that works for the Kombrink team, and lives in the Elgin area.
Miles was extremely helpful in reviewing the houses that my wife and I wanted to see. On a short notice, he was able to secure viewings of almost every house on our, fairly long, list. Once we found, “The One”, he moved quickly to start the negotiation. Every step of the negotiation process he made a point to obtain information for us very quickly, sometimes within only a few minutes. Later in the buying process, Miles was able to refer us to an amazing home inspector who put our minds at ease with the purchase of our home. Finally, as our closing day drew near, Miles helped us secure a moving truck that we could use FOR FREE, no catches!
Now only three weeks since closing, we are settling in nicely to our new home. I can’t recommend Miles and the Kombrink team enough for all they have done. The experience was so positive; I’ve even recommended him to my parents to use as they contemplate moving closer to their grandchild. Going with the Kombrink team and getting paired with Miles is one of the best moves we’ve made since moving to the area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Kingston, IL.
Primary point of contact: Miles Tischauser
Our experience with RE/MAX Great American North was exceptional. Miles Tischauser (our agent) was the best. Our house sold in 11 days...smooth from beginning to end. We had non-stop showings from day one until the contract was signed! If you want to sell your home, worry free and with confidence, call Miles at RE/MAX Great American North!

Wow! Thanks for that! Glad you had such a wonderful experience with our team.
I cannot say one negative thing about my experience purchasing a home with the Kombrink Team. Miles was very knowledgeable about the surrounding market and helped me find a house that would be the right fit for me. Whenever I had a concern or question I received a prompt response - it didn't matter if it was during the evening or on the weekend. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and should I buy/sell in the future I would use them again!

Professional, positive, great to work with. Great advertising and had lots of showings. Was also able to sell my parent's house in addition to my own. Knew what they were doing and made you feel like you were their priority.

We had the pleasure of working with Miles Tischhauser at Kombrink Realty - he was easy to get a hold of when we had questions, was very patient with us when our lender caused a couple delays, and offered us great advice during the entire search, offer, inspection, and closing process - he's young, he's smart, and he's willing to move on quickly when you decide that a certain house isn't for you - he really wants you to find what YOU want, not what he wants - a great quality in a Realtor!

We recently worked with Miles Tischhauser of the Kombrink team. Miles worked hard to help us find a home in a short time period. He always answered our calls/emails quickly. He has a good knowledge of the area and great negotiating skills. He was able to get the Seller to come down substantially in price. We appreciated his efforts and skills and will most definately use him in the future.
