Ratings & Reviews

This is what we wrote in our thank you card to Phil: "We wanted you to know how much we sincerely appreciated all that you did for us through our home-buying adventure. At no time did we feel apprehensive with you at the helm. Your cool calming presence, your astute level of expertise, and your attention to detail did not go unnoticed. We never once felt the usual anxiety associated with buying a home. Instead, we got the impression that this is exactly what you would do if it were you buying the home. You led with your heart and that meant the world to us. We wish you continued success in your business and please know that we will refer you to everyone and anyone who will listen! Thanks again for a wonderful home-buying experience!"

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Oakwood Hills, IL.

Phil was very proficient and knowledgeable about the housing market. He was truly dedicated to helping us find a home perfect for us. I am extremely grateful since he was always available to help answer any questions we had regarding the investment of a home. Finding and buying a home is a tough process in itself, but our relationship with Phil and his dedication made it a lot easier. His interactions are timely and always professional. We are so very thankful to Phil for his support and will refer him to anyone we know looking to purchase a home. We absolutely love our new home!!! Thank you Phil!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Johnsburg, IL.

Phil made our 1st home purchase a comfortable & smooth transaction. We feel Phil went above and beyond as far as answering questions and helping us understand all the ins & outs of home buying. Phil had an extensive knowledge of the area we were interested in. My wife and I would highly recommend Phil Szyjka as a realtor for the McHenry County area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Mchenry, IL.

We had consulted a different realtor at first to list our home. She complimented our house, but wanted to list it at prices similar to those of lesser quality homes, that were in our neighborhood. Phil saw the quality ("Wow Factors" as he phased it) in our home and made extra efforts to find comparable listings in other parts of town. Our immediate neighborhood had a number of distressed homes that were listed at or had sold at prices reflecting their condition. Phil put together an excellent listing presentation of our home and as a result, we had great response and many viewings. The end result was not only did we get a price we were comfortable with (about $15000 more than the first realtor wanted to start our offering) but we had an offer that we accepted in only about 6 weeks.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Johnsburg, IL.

I was referred to Philip from a co-worker. I have several friends in the industry that work mostly in the city and surrounding suburbs, but decided on Phil because of his experience and knowledge in the area I was looking. He knows a lot of people in the industry, in the area, and is very resourceful. He was easy to work with, quick to respond to questions via text or email, promptly returned phone calls, and was always willing to offer his professional and personal opinions on properties. I recommend his services to anyone looking for an easy, professional, low stress real estate transaction.
