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 My existing condo, though in a great neighborhood, was a bit outdated.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!

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!

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!

Sold a home in 2014.

Sam was great. He is clearly well connected as he got us into a house that wasn't even on the market yet and sold our house before it went live on the MLS. We got both deals done quickly and at the prices we wanted. He helped us walk through our decision-making and the overall process. Sam was available at all times and very responsive. I would work with him again in a heartbeat.

I can't wait to see how the renovation turned out. I hear it's absolutely amazing. You scored one of the best locations in all of Lincoln Park and an unbeatable price. So happy for you and your family

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $150K 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..

Sold a home in 2014 for approximately $450K.

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!

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $325K 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!

Sold a home in 2014.

Sam Shaffer had potential buyers looking at my building almost sooner than I thought possible. My 3 flat was closed within a few weeks. I was amazed. Sam is the best broker I have ever worked with.

Sold a Other home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Bucktown, Chicago, IL.

We highly recommend Sam, he was very professional and was able to sell our place fast for a great price. From coordinating all of the pre-market activity, to handling showings and inspections, Sam was on top of things and very responsive to all of our needs. Imagine trying to sell your home when you have two infants and you and your spouse have time consuming careers. Sam gets it. He takes a lot of the stress out of the process and works hard to ensure everything is a success. We never thought twice about our decision to work with him.
