Team reviews

We've used Dan Merrion at City Point Realty to buy 2 places and sell one. As a seller's agent, he gave great advice regarding staging and pricing and we were pleasantly shocked when our place was under contract in less than 2 weeks. As a buyer's agent, he found us great properties and was able to direct us to some different neighborhoods and types of houses we had not previously considered. Dan knows Chicago real estate and he is great at his job. I would recommend him to anyone, especially someone trying to sell a home during an economic downturn.

Sold a home in 2010 in Hawkins Glen, IL 60175.

As our family grew we knew we needed to move to a bigger place but we were nervous about moving in this economy. Dan was able to put us at ease by guiding us through the entire process of listing our home for a fair price and finding the best home for the value in our price range. Dan's knowledge of the Chicago area and real estate in general is very impressive. I always felt like Dan was being honest and straightforward with my husband and myself. I have also recommended his services to friends and family members and they have always been pleased.

Bought a home in 2010 in Bucktown, Chicago, IL 60614.

Dan was our buying agent when we bought our first home. We were new to the process, and Dan was instrumental in guiding us through all stages. He made it easy, was patient with our many questions, and really took the stress out of the process. We were temporarily living on the West Coast when we did our search, and Dan worked with our crazy schedule. We flew in and asked to see 35 places in 48 hours, and Dan made it happen. He has been working in the Chicago area forever and knows the neighborhoods very well. He was also great during negotiations -- he talked us out of making an overly generous initial offer and got us a final price well below what we expected. After our purchase, we were refinancing and needed help with our appraisal, and Dan volunteered his time to help us get the refinance through. Dan also previously helped us find a rental unit. He was great during that process as well.

Bought a home in 2006 in Bucktown, Chicago, IL 60614.

Dan acted as my agent in buying a Lincoln park apt. Dan didn't disappear after the sale/commission, but rather when I needed to relocate for work reasons, he diligently and relentlessly helped me find tenants to rent out the apt. Dan's extensive knowledge of the Chicago market, his ability to get me a great deal, and his accomodating and responsive nature make him the utmost real estate professional. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to purchase property in Chicago.

Bought a home in 2013 in Gold Coast, Chicago, IL 60610.

Brian has helped me with 2 properties and both ended up to be great deals. He is very knowledgeable of the Chicago area, responsive and fun to work with. When it comes to negotiation, he offers thorough information and honest and trustworthy opinions. Most importantly, I feel he puts clients' interest first and foremost, and always has the big picture in mind - he helps me negotiate hard, but also tells me when to stop and seize a good deal. Highly recommended!

Sold a Multi Family home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Ravenswood, Chicago, IL.

Brian and Dan Merrion are 1st class real estate agents. My first agency could not sell my 2-flat after 1 year. Brian and Dan were able to sell my home in 3 months for the price I was looking for. They provided expert advice and very good recommendations for contractors, lawyer, & home inspector. If you want to sell your property hire City Point realty.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2011 in Wicker Park, Chicago, IL.

We had an amazing experience with Brian. He was so patient with my fiance and I while we looked at condos and homes for almost an entire year. We never felt pressured or rushed. He always listened to our requests and made sure that he showed us places that really fit our needs. We ended up finding something that far exceeded our expectations. We couldnt be happier!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in La Grange, IL.

I had a great real estate experience with Dan & Brian. They know the Chicago and surrounding area intimately and were helpful in finding us the right home. They also did a great job during the negotiation process. They are well connected with good home service providers which we found very helpful since we were moving from a different state. I highly recommend these guys!

Helped me rent a Condo home in University Village - Little Italy, Chicago, IL.

I am so excited about the place I just signed for in University Village, Brain and, especially his fabulous assistance Libby, were so great. I'm in a wheelchair and finding the right rental housing is a headache. Not only did it need to be in the right place at the right price point but they had the massive challenge of finding a place that would being accessible. I also currently live over 3 hours away from Chicago. Libby was kind enough to investigate every plausible listing and schedule the showings around our schedules, When we found my perfect place Libby worked hard to make sure we put in my offer as that day and she made sure that everyone involved understood my predicaments. These people are the best!
