"Jake pretty much saved our lives making the home buying and selling process as stress free and delightful as possible. He listened to every nit picky want and need, and worked so hard to show us as many houses as it took. He was available to chat , text, and email, and we felt really taken care of. Towards the end of our home search, we felt tired and anxious and almost settled on a that wasn’t quite right us. He didn’t hesitate to tell us his actual thoughts, we took his advice, and I’m currently writing this review from the couch of our *actual* dream home. He knows what he’s doing and he works hard to match people with the right place. Not once did we feel like he was just trying to make a sale. When we were selling our he was great about specific to dos to get it in tip top shape viewing. He connected us with an amazing stager and the went fast, above list price. On top of his expertise with home buying and selling, he’s just a really phenomenally nice person and we feel like we’ve made an actual friend out of this process. On closing day, he even surprised us with the most thoughtful gift we’ve ever gotten. Our was a gut rehab, and he secretly had the old, beautiful 100 year old front door removed, so he could hand cut, sand, stain, and frame the massive floral designs we were sad to see go. They’re hanging on our wall as a daily reminder of our pal Jake, and how hard he worked our family and our dream home! We can not recommend him enough!!!!!"

"Working with Jake was such a great experience! My fiance and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy/list/ in the city. We were referred to him another friend who had a wonderful home buying experience a few months prior to us starting to look. Right away we felt comfortable and confident because he took time to meet with us and figure out exactly what we were looking for and set expectations. This was our first home buying experience and neither of us had any knowledge about how the process worked but Jake explained everything in detail and was always quick to respond when we had any follow up questions/concerns. Although we knew he had other clients, we always felt like we were his priority throughout the process. He knows the city so well and we were so impressed the fact that he always knew the right questions to ask when we went to look at properties. When it came to finding our perfect he was quick to help us get our offer together and was so good at helping us navigate the process all the way up until closing day. Can't say enough good things about him and we would definitely use him again in the future."

"Jake and his team are excellent! Jake is very knowledgeable, easy to communicate with, organized, and on top of EVERYTHING. We've come across many and over the years and he is far the best. He never failed to impress us every step of the way during our journey buying our first condo. Will definitely use him when we decide to sell and/or buy our next place."

"Jake explained the whole home buying process very clearly to me and my wife. He responded promptly to our questions and was very well organized. He helped us in refining our needs and focusing on those properties matching our needs. He has good knowledge about the Chicago neighborhoods and has good negotiation skills." - Rajan

"Jake was great to work with - extremely responsive, considerate of the client's needs, and very knowledgeable and willing to teach a first time buyer. He spent time up front educating me on the process and all aspects of the local , helping me feel more comfortable putting in an offer (in which he displayed his negotiating skills, accurately predicting the seller's response). Already looking forward to selling sometime down the line so I get to work with Jake again!" - Kenneth
