Ratings & Reviews

Meeting BJ was s truly serendipity. After interviewing several perspective agents, there really was no comparison. His knowledge of the market and the area is outstanding. His information and pricing was 'right-on" as were his recommendations to us. The house sold in just 3 days. Throughout the process BJ was attentive, helpful and responsive to all of our questions. Don't look any further for an agent...Go with BJ.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Sauganash Woods, Chicago, IL.

BJ is the ultimate real estate package. To start, he's simply great to work with and enjoyable throughout the process. He's honest, resourceful, and will go the extra mile to make things happen. You won't be disappointed. The buying/selling process has it's inevitable ups and downs and BJ was always helpful through it all. I never write reviews and I'm doing so now because we were so pleased with his work.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2015 in Jefferson Park, Chicago, IL.

BJ Tregoning is an outstanding, very personable man who listens carefully to your needs and wants in selling your property. I really did not need to call him but a couple of times during our contract, but he always returned my calls within minutes. He is well educated in Real Estate Sales, very knowledgeable in local surrounding property sales that helped me tremendously in setting a desired selling price for my property.

I found him to be 100% HONEST

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Morton Grove, IL.

BJ is a seasoned, personable, and responsive professional who knows the market and property managers in the marketplace. He was helpful and knowledgeable in all aspects of our sale, purchase and closing processes. I have previously worked with other realtors; however, BJ is one of the best in the business!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Jefferson Park, Chicago, IL.

BJ had a good strategy and was transparent with his fees. After 6 days of being on the market we received multiple offers and sold for asking price. Throughout the entire process BJ was very helpful and quick to respond to any question I had.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Albany Park, Chicago, IL.

We found BJ because we were having the worst time with our first real estate agent, a guy who came highly recommended by a close friend. The agent didn't do a good job of letting us know what to expect, he was hard to get on the phone and was late to our first day of showings. We justified all these things by telling ourselves to take it easy and that this was probably just the way these things go. As these things continued I would find myself google searching things like "Am I calling my real estate agent to much" and "Am I annoying my real estate agent."

During these searches I found BJ. I knew BJ from doing improv with him a few years prior. At the time I think he was working for a place that owned condos and he would fix any issues that would come up. I figured that would be extremely valuable when looking at properties.

I decided to give BJ a call just to ask him some questions. We talked for about 15 mins and at no point did he try and influence me to switch agents. He just answered any silly questions I had and asked me how my life was going. By the end of that call I knew he was my guy. He gave me more information in that 15 mins than I had received in all the months prior.

I called him back a day later and asked if he would help my fiancee and I find our new home.

From day one he was everything we could ask for. He told us exactly what to expect and was there for us every step of the way. He made us so comfortable and was always available for us on the phone or through texts. We visited somewhere around 30-40 condos, multi-flats and single family homes during that time. During the visits if he saw something that he thought was a problem he would point it out, conversely if there was a property that was a good value he would let us know. He would never try and influence us into a property we weren't into and was patient with us until we found a place that we felt was perfect. When we did find our perfect home it wasn't easy to get. It was a foreclosure that was way out of our price range. Instead of trying to get us to buy it and go above our budget or just give up on this house, we decided to see if we could haggle and get the house for way under the asking price. I cannot believe it but it WORKED! We got our dream home within our budget with the help of the best real estate agent/friend in Chicago. He also set us up with amazing team of lawyers and mortgage lenders that made this scary process fun and easy to understand.

We feel very lucky to have found BJ and hope others find him so they can make this important journey a wonderful and safe experience.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Uptown, Chicago, IL.

BJ helped us purchase our first home, and we couldn't have asked for a better agent. We were impressed by his in-depth knowledge of the local market, responsiveness and friendliness. His insights were valuable while we weighing our different buying options. Overall, BJ made the purchase of our first home a great experience, and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home.

Bought a home in 2012 in Oakton, Evanston, IL 60202.

BJ is a life saver. We had been looking to buy for three years. But after meeting BJ, we found and bought our first home in three months. He knows everything about the process and was patient in answering our many questions. He was the first to point out potential problems or if the house did not meet our list of must-haves. He honestly put our best interest at heart.

He is a good realtor and a good guy.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $175K in Jefferson Park, Chicago, IL.

BJ helped my boyfriend and I purchase a home in Jefferson Park, and we’re so happy with both the home we’re in and our experience with BJ as our realtor. He was extremely knowledgeable of the areas we were looking in and provided valuable insight into prospective homes’ true appraisal value. He patiently showed us house after house, week after week and answered all of our questions until we found the place we ultimately bought. His honesty, flexibility, understanding of our needs, responsiveness and follow-up throughout the process made the stress of home buying so much less. I definitely recommend BJ!
