Dustin was great to work with in our apartment search! He took the time to really understand what we were looking for, only sent the properties that fit our description, thereby saving us time, and didn't go over budget. In his professional demeanor, we could discuss the pros/cons of each property and with his extensive knowledge of the neighborhood, gave us tips to consider that we wouldn't have otherwise know to ask. I'd highly recommend Dustin for your next home rental or apartment!

Melanie - East Lake View

Dustin recently rented out a condo that I own in East Lakeview. The whole experience was awesome! I did not have to worry about a thing. He found me a great renter in less than 2 days, took care of all the necessary paperwork, and answered all of my questions about being a first time landlord. I highly recommend him, and he will be the first person that I call when it's time to find a new tenant!

Elizabeth - East Lake View

Dustin was my second realtor after my first wasn't nearly as knowledgeable or mindful of what I was looking for. The property I actually wound up purchasing wasn't even my initial list to look at, but Dustin understood the style and what I was looking for and helped me buy my first home/condo! 4 months after closing and still extremely happy with my purchase. I fully recommend Dustin! He listened and even helped me find a mortgage broker when I was skeptical of my first two (first time home buyer precautions!). Thank you Dustin and if anyone needs to find a home in Chicago - he is the person to go to!

Andrea - North Center

As a new Chicago resident, I could not have asked for a better person to help find my new home. Dustin was extremely accommodating and led me through each step of the moving process. His wealth of knowledge of Chicago - from the ins and out of various neighborhoods to cuisine hot spots - has come in extremely helpful with adjusting. His genuine and go-getter personality was revealed through his willingness to hold showings on short notice and follow-ups to ensure I’m adjusting well. He was such a pleasure to work with and truly looked for the best fit for me and my budget. I will definitely stick with Dustin for my future endeavors and look forward to working with him again!

Mary - Lincoln Park

My wife and I found Dustin to be a great communicator! When faced with the decisions one makes during a search for a place to live in and near downtown Chicago, the need for timely, accurate and thorough information is paramount and that's what Dustin did for us. He was attentive and helpful during and after the decisions were made. I believe Dustin is a true professional and can help you maximize your choices with minimum hassle. All roads lead to Dustin for a satisfying experience!

Dustin made our apartment hunting experience incredibly easy. After giving him our list of needs and a tight budget, he found a number of suitable properties. He kept us informed on all steps of the process and quickly responded to any inquiries we had. After taking us to tour a few different properties, Dustin was patient as we deliberated and made decisions. He handled everything during the application and lease signing process, going so far as to assist us when our new leasing company failed to arrive on time for a scheduled appointment to fill out paperwork. Dustin went above and beyond to help my roommates and I find a new home for the year ahead. He made a process I usually dread painless. He is courteous, punctual, and highly professional. I would (and have) recommend him highly to anyone looking to buy, lease, or sell a home in the Chicago area. I will be returning to him with any future apartment hunting needs and real estate questions.

Emily - Uptown

Dustin was great in helping us find our new apartment. He was in constant contact with us throughout the entire process and helped out with the paperwork in signing our new lease. I would highly recommend working with Dustin if you ever get the chance.

Shane - Rogers Park

Dustin was with me from the beginning and made the transition of moving to a new city very comfortable. He kept my needs in mind and only showed me listings that would be ideal for me. I would highly recommend Dustin. His professionalism, knowledge, and understanding of the Chicago market makes him an ideal individual to work with.

Kern - Uptown

Dustin was very helpful with my apartment hunting experience. He responded promptly to emails and was able to answer any questions I had. He helped me find listings that were within my budget and helped show me around the city when I went to view units in person. I would highly recommend Dustin and would gladly use him again when looking for places in Chicago.

Jorgen - Lake View

Finding an apartment for four people and a cat is not an easy task at the budget that we had, but Dustin got back to us with multiple options in just a couple of days. He listened to our needs, set up showings quickly, responded to emails within minutes, and was patient with us while we made our decision. I have recommended Dustin any friend or family member! He was very courteous and made it obvious that he cared about us and our decision. I will definitely not look for another apartment in the city without him.

Taylor - Buena Park

We could not have asked for a more helpful or professional realtor than Dustin Toale! He was friendly, courteous, and always respectful. He helped my roommates and I find the perfect apartment for us, and went the extra mile to ensure we had a seamless experience from start to finish. I HIGHLY recommend Dustin for any and all of your real estate needs, and plan to continue consulting him in the future!
