Team reviews

Sam helped me sell a building, in Rogers Park that had been in my family for over 60 years. It was a complex sale and Sam was there all the way through the process, giving his all to sell my property. Sam can make a stressful situation lighter but still takes his role seriously and gets the job done. I also used Sam for the sale of an apartment downtown recently and the result was the same. Professional and prompt! I will recommend Sam again and again.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in West Town, Chicago, IL.

Over the past nine years Sam has helped us buy and sell real estate on several occasions. The hallmarks of his service are integrity, simplicity and speed. This sale was no exception. He listed our condominium and, by the time that we returned from an overseas trip, he had sold it. It was no more than we expected from a thoroughly competent and professional realtor whom we will continue to consult in any real estate transaction we ae involved in.

Sold a home in 2013 in Chicago, IL.

We've had our condo on and off the market several times over the past 7 years and this time, Sam was able to get it sold. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods and market conditions, is very professional and accommodating, as well as being an amazing negotiator. We would use him again and totally recommend him to others.

Sold a home in 2013.

Sam is an accountable agent with great listening and negotiation skills. He took care of everything (from staging to repair and even cleaning, etc.) since we moved away to a different state. We have challenged him a couple of time with different pricing strategies and it was tested over time that he was right. I have to say our condo wouldn't be sold quickly without his help. I would highly recommend him for professional services.

Sold a home in 2013 in Logan Square, Chicago, IL 60647.

Sam is the BEST!!! He has a great pulse on the Chicago housing market. Sam is responsive, profession and honest. He was able to sell our condo in less than a month. We have referred several of our friends and co-workers to Sam, and all have raved about him. Do yourself a favor, and go with Sam.

Sold a home in 2013 in Lake View, Chicago, IL 60657.

Until Sam took over I hadn't had a showing in a year. That changed immediately. He knows his neighborhoods, was very supportive especially in a difficult economic market and is a pleasure to work with. Noel Osborn, Home Seller

Very responsive and proactive, addressed all concerns in a timely manner, knowledgable in the field. Both my husband and I established great relationship with Sam. We couldn't ask for a better realtor to work with.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.025M in North Center, Chicago, IL.

Sam was the perfect realtor for my family. He was able to help us narrow our search to determine what our priorities were and was very quick to respond when we wanted to see a listing. When we found our dream home in a new construction, he helped negotiate an amazing price and even got some upgrades thrown in! When it came time to do the deal he was there every step of the way and provided great recommendations for mortgage brokers, lawyers etc. Even though the deal is done, we are still getting advice moving companies, handymen and designers. Thanks again Sam for all your work and friendly recommendations.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $825K in Wicker Park, Chicago, IL.

Sam is very likely the best in the business. We recently worked with him to sell our Bucktown home. We benefited tremendously from Sam's deep and seasoned expertise, knowledge of the market, communication and negotiation skills, and industry contacts. He is professional, smart, focused, available, responsive and simply outworks most people in any profession. He is also a friendly, fun and genuine guy with great character. Our situation became complicated (which had nothing to do with Sam) and we appreciated how fully committed he remained to the process and outcome. We'd recommend him to anyone and work with him again in a heartbeat.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Bucktown, Chicago, IL.

Sam is the best. I bought my place through him and just recently sold it through him. He got me full asking price and I couldn't be happier. Sam is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.

Thanks for the kind words. It's not to often that my clients buy a property and turn around and sell so quickly. Thanks goodness we negotiated such a great deal for you on your buy and I was able to see your condo for full price for 55K higher than your purchase price less than two years ago. Great team effort!
