"I found a for a home I was interested in emailed John - I had an appointment scheduled within the hour. That level of responsiveness, commitment, professionalism carried throughout my buying process. John acted as the agent for both the builder me as the buyer, but his ability to manage both sides was impressive, an asset. He has continued to be a resource for me beyond the buying process. John got me into my dream home, so it is unlikely I'll need his service in the near future, he will absolutely be referred to everyone I know." - Jaclyn

★★★★★
"John did an excellent job throughout the entire sale process. His work ethic showed from our first appointment. He arrived well-prepared with area comps, recommendation on the sale price, tips to improve the marketability of the house. He walked through the entire process from beginning to close, kept me updated every step of the way. The house was priced right quickly. John found the buyer, negotiated an above-asking sale price, a quick closing. From start to finish, John made the sale of my home a pleasant experience. " - Eric

"I had a short moving period was not happy with someone else who was "taking care of me." The previous agent left me in a tight position I had very little time to . Every single day counted for me as it was down to the wire. I won't go into detail about that terrible experience. I will highlight the good! Johnny came to the rescue for me. I told him about my tight predicament his first response regarding one of my top 5 favorite listings that my original agent didn't show me was, "oh, no problem--I know the listing agent." Such a relief--when you shake hands with Johnny Grafft, you are shaking hands with someone that has a large and very respectable book of clientele, knows all of his competitors and has great business relations with them, probably could be the mayor of Chicago, and will stop in his tracks to make sure his client is cared for. I literally needed rescue to find a place and Johnny stopped what he was doing wherever he was to make sure I could find a great place to live. If you are looking for someone who cares like Johnny cared for me, send him an email. " - John

"John helped me find my home in the gold coast. Coming from New York I did not know where to start. He showed me homes all over an we settled on one. He negotiated a great deal and I couldn’t be happier. I’m finally leaving a review as we’re having lunch together right now almost a year later. He became a friend throughout the entire process." - Natalia

★★★★★
"John understands the property and the demographic. He is easy to work with and extremely professional. He will work with you to establish the best price point and is dedicated to negotiating fairly but firmly to achieve the highest and best value. My property for over ask a very short time frame. I plan on using John for both buying selling in the future."
