Sold a home in 2014.
My husband and I met Tom as a referral from a friend. Trying to sell a condo in Chicago from the suburbs or northeast Ohio could be difficult but Tom made it so easy! Tom has a wealth of knowledge about the housing market. His research and marketing plan worked perfectly on selling my condo. We got an offer at the first open house for over the asking price and as is! I couldn’t believe how well it went. The process of selling our condo was so painless. We were able to sign all of the documents in Ohio and scan them over to Tom making it very easy on our end. I couldn’t be happier with the way things turned out and I highly recommend Tom and the whole team at Ask Nagel…they will not disappoint!  MoreLess

Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Logan Square, Chicago, IL.
Tom was great in helping me find a 2 bedroom condo in the West Bucktown area. He knows a lot about Chicago but has exceptional expertise in the "West Town" collection of neighborhoods. He knew that I knew exactly what I was looking for and didn't get discouraged when the first month of searches didn't yield many results....but then the perfect place went on the market and not only did Tom find it, he worked over the weekend to ensure that my offer was heard first. Another thing about Thomas was that when I was first getting into this process I was told by family and friends not to trust the agent's "cronies" and that I should find my own lender, lawyer, inspector, etc. Tom gave me references for all these necessary contacts and his recommendations were perfect. The lawyer (Zucker & Boyer) was fantastic , the lender (Guaranteed Rate) helped me find a $7500 interest-free loan from the state of Illinois and the inspector climbed up an almost inaccessible roof in the winter to discover some significant roofing wear and tear that I was able to negotiate into my closing. If you're looking to buy in Chicago, ESPECIALLY in the Bucktown, Wicker Park, Logan Sq, Ukrainian Village, Humboldt Park neighborhoods.....give this guy a call.  MoreLess

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Logan Square, Chicago, IL.
My husband and I worked with Tom Tomek of Ask Nagel Realty to purchase an investment property in December 2013. We knew Tom socially through our kids but had not worked with him in his capacity as a realtor before. Tom has been very involved with the West Town community for many years (decades really) and has always given generously of his time and efforts. Tom demonstrated these same skills when he helped us find a condo--he was very responsive and very eager to help us figure out what kind of property we wanted. Tom is has a lot of knowledge and experience with the West Town area and Ukrainian Village, Wicker Park, and Bucktown in particular. He was a pleasure to work with and was always super responsive, flexible with showings, and offered sound and helpful advice and opinions on the properties. I would highly recommend Tom and Ask Nagel Realty to anybody looking to purchase or sell real estate property in the area.  MoreLess
