      Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Sheffield Neighbors, Chicago, IL.
      Sam is outstanding! The first time we reached out to Sam he got back to us in less than an hour and later we found out that he was on vacation, now that is responsive! Sam's suggestions for marketing the property were excellent and the time period from listing the property to the date of close was less than 30 days. We would highly recommend Sam for his knowledge of the area, real estate process, and overall a great person to partner with when selling a home.  MoreLess

      Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Wrigleyville, Chicago, IL.
      Sam was great -- patient, knowledgeable, and really good at what he does. As a first time homebuyer I had no idea what I was doing from the start, but Sam explained the whole process every step of the way. He had a lot of great insights on neighborhoods, home features/prices, and things to look for/watch out for. He was incredibly responsive, especially in the stressful offer/negotiation process. His network of referrals was really good -- the mortgage broker and lawyer he recommended were great.

      Also, he's just a cool guy and I enjoyed spending Saturdays looking at houses.

      I ended up buying a place at a price I was happy with, and it was a great experience working with Sam. I highly recommend him.

      Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Buena Park, Chicago, IL.
      I wish tree was a character limit because I could write a novel about how great Sam is. From start to finish, he went above and beyond. The same is true about everyone he recommended to help ease the purchase process. If I had last minute questions for him, the mortgage broker, or lawyer, they would respond the same day, even at 11pm. I can't imagine having a faster or smoother purchase with anyone else. And he never tried to sell me on something. He let me take as much time as I needed, and once I made up my mind, he GOT STUFF DONE. I hope he doesn't retire retire in the next ten years because I can't imagine working with another realtor. Thanks, Sam!  MoreLess
