Sold a Condo home in 2014 in West Rogers Park, Chicago, IL.

Sam and Ben are a great team. Sam brings a ton of experience and shrewdness in negotiations. Ben brings his charm and enthusiasm. Both treated me as if I was their only client. They arranged everything (building managers' permissions, stager, lawyer) because I could not come back to Chicago once I left the city. The deal fell through once but they redoubled their efforts and got me an even better price. Highly recommended..  More Less

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in River West, Chicago, IL.

Sam was an ABSOLUTE pleasure to work with and is extremely knowledgeable and competent. Because of Sam's expertise, my town home was under contract two days after being listed on the MLS. Sam also assisted me in finding a place to rent in the interim, and that included streamlining a credit check for a lease application. As stressful as selling and moving can be, Sam was able to keep the stress levels to the "bare minimum." I have bought and sold real estate three times, and this experience was by far the easiest. I am looking forward to working with Sam on the purchase of next home in 2015, and I highly recommend him. Thanks so much, Sam!  More Less

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in The Loop, Chicago, IL.

We went to Sam to sell our unique downtown condo after we had already moved out of it. I didn't know anything about what needed to happen in this market. I was up front with him that we would need a certain amount of "hand-holding," since we wouldn't be in Chicago. He was up for the challenge, and I'm so glad. He recommended a stager, who did a magnificent job, and we had an offer in a week. He made sure that the details of closing were smoothed out, so we didn't have to do anything. He just handled it for us. I'm very grateful for his knowledge and expertise, and for his willingness and good humor. Thanks, Sam!  More Less
