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!!!

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 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.

Sold a Other home in 2014 in Humboldt Park, Chicago, IL.
Sam did a really nice job helping me find my condo. He knew the neighborhoods I was looking at well and that helped guide my search process. He was also responsive and attentive, making sure we were competitive with our terms in a tough buying market. Good organization/business sense.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Palmer Square, Chicago, IL.
Sam was a phenomenal Realtor. I could not have asked for someone more thoughtful, knowledgeable and dedicated. Although my purchase was probably one of his smaller transactions he put an extreme amount of time and effort into the process. He always has his client's best interest in mind and I recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Old Town, Chicago, IL.
Sam is absolutely amazing....from the moment you meet him, until your closing...and beyond.

He is very professional and will advise you with confidence and 10+ years of experience.

He will also support you when you decide to veer to unchartered territory, or take a path less traveled.

We were referred to Sam by our close friends who were extremely happy with him as well.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $750K in Old Irving Park, Chicago, IL.
Sam has helped me sell two places and buy one in the past 18 months. In all three occasions he has exceeded my expectations. In both sales he has found ways to sell my house quickly for more than I expected. And he was able to find me a place that was in my desired neighborhood and under my budget that once again exceeded my expectations! But my favorite part about working with him is that he is honest! He cared about my needs and told me when he disagreed with what I thought. In the end he made sure I found the place that he knew met needs! I trust him and would recommend him to anyone looking for a place in Chicago.

Bought a home in 2014.
Sam was a great realtor in my first venture into home ownership! I quickly became a total cynic when I realized what little good inventory was on the market. Sam kept me positive and motivated throughout with awesome pep talks promising that I would find a place I loved. And yes, I did. An amazing place that Sam got me in to immediately for a showing. Sam is very responsive and on top of things. He knows what he is talking about and has great referrals if you need them. I will definately recommend Sam!

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Bucktown, Chicago, IL.
I could write sentence after positive sentence about Sam Shaffer. My husband and I recently bought a condo in Bucktown/Wicker Park and Sam took amazing care of us during the entire process. He educated us about neighborhoods (we were living on the East Coast), helped us look critically when visiting properties, answered all of our , sometime mundane, questions quickly and efficiently. Although we've used real estate agents before, Sam is by far the best agent we've ever encountered. He's professional, caring and smart and we KNEW he had our best interests at heart throughout the entire process. We highly recommend Sam Shaffer without qualifications. Plus, he's a wonderful person.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Graceland West, Chicago, IL.
What can I say other than Sam is truly the best. Thanks to a refferal, we used Sam to buy our first home and our experience was fantastic. We felt immediately that Sam had our best interest at heart, he listented to us and what we wanted and also offered very valuable advice when we needed it. He helped save us from ourselves a few times as well (ie wanting to compromise on things we shouldn't, buying a place that wasn't sustainable for us and our family goals)! He has a big picture perspective which is very important when you are buying your new home and are anxious about details. Sam has very strong relationships which was evident when we went to see properties--Sam knows everyone! This was huge benefit for us, as he was often the first to know about properites coming on the market...we ended up buying a place that was never even listed thanks to Sam! His very extensive and diverse experience, reputation among the community, and genuine care for his clients makes him the best out there.
