      Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Lake View East, Chicago, IL.
      Sam helped my husband Willie and with our first home purchase. We were referred to Sam by our lender Craig, with Molitor Financial Group - he did not disappoint, and come to find out, Sam is recognized as one of the top realtors in the market. Based on our experience - this is no surprise. From our first meeting, Sam walked us through the process and set reasonable expectations. One of our favorite things about Sam is that he respected our opinions, but also gave us great insight and shared his thoughts to ensure we were making informed decisions. We feel really lucky to have worked with him and would highly recommend him to anyone. Sam's motto - "We're not going to settle." He was committed to helping us find a great place. Thank you SAM!!!  MoreLess

      Bought a home in 2014.
      Sam was an incredible realtor. I was a first time homebuyer and unfamiliar with the whole process and Sams knowledge really put me at ease throughout the process. He always made himself available to meet with me at times that worked with my schedule. He pushed really hard in negotiations with tough stubborn people and I always felt he was looking out for me.

      I would recommend Sam to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Chicago area.

      Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Near North, Chicago, IL.
      Sam was a fantastic agent and when it comes to time to buy our next house he will be the very first call. Here are some details:

      1) Professionalism. So few real-estate agents take the time to understand your needs and perform the prep work prior to actually meeting you. Sam was perfect on both counts. Prior to visiting homes, he would send over a detailed schedule of the properties. This was immensely helpful as I travel extensively and this allowed us to be as efficient as possible. Moreover, he was always very accommodating of our choice on properties rather than pushing something.

      2) Negotiation skills. Sam was our trusted adviser. If there was anything that we needed help with Sam came through. This was especially apparent with his negotiation skills. Without him I can honestly say that we would not have been able to get this property.

      3) Expertise. I feel like there is no one in Chicago that Sam does not know. He knew all the real estate agents, all the loan officers, all the right people to make our dream house a reality. We probably had the most competent team that could possibly be assembled and, moreover, some of the nicest people too. This made the home buying process a positive experience.
