Sold a Apartment home in 2014 for approximately $425K in East Ukrainian Village, Chicago, IL.

Sam helped me with both the sale of my existing condo and the purchase of a new home. My existing condo, though in a great neighborhood, was a bit outdated. I didn't want to spend a lot of money changing things, so Sam helped me determine what I needed to do and worked very diligently on getting the property sold for a good price. He found me the perfect new place and really had my back while we were negotiating with a very difficult seller and realtor. I trust Sam implicitly, and I would recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling. He's also a nice guy and lot of fun to work with!  More Less

OMG, you were so amazing to work with. Thank you for being such a great sport with all of my staging suggestions. Also, we definitely got an amazing deal on your new home. The location and lay-out is just perfect and I couldn't be happier for you. Best, Sam

A few roller coasters on this deal with the first buyer backing out. However, we got it sold for more money the second time around which I couldn't be more thrilled with. Thanks for your trust and support!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $750K in Wicker Park, Chicago, IL.

Sam was awesome! He put together a great listing for us, with awesome pictures and sent it out to his network. We literally had one couple come through based on his connections, and they bought the house, without us ever having to list it on MLS. It could not have been an easier or more stress-free process for us, which was particularly important because showing a house when you have kids is always hard. We got a great price, and were able to get the flexibility we needed from the buyers for our move to a new house. We would not hesitate to recommend Sam to others!  More Less

I wish all deals could go this smoothly :-). It was great to be able to tap into my network of other top agents and share off market deals (aka pocket listings). Not only did we get your house sold for a great price, I didn't have to disrupt your home environment, especially with the new addition to the family. Thanks for being so amazing guys!
