"Steve is a super fun and engaging person. He knows the market and is great at educating friends and I’m sure clients like. He is in tune with the community and always willing to help. I highly recommend reaching out if you’re looking to buy or sell real estate.." - Diane

"Steve believed in our house and conveyed this enthusiasm to prospective buyers. He gave very wise strategic counsel that panned out, and was unfailingly courteous and respectful to us. The house sold quickly, and we were satisfied with the price, even in the face of higher interest rates depressing demand. Would strongly recommend him if you are buying or selling." - Nocynic

"Our lovely Edgewater condo was intended to be our forever home in a city we love. When life had different plans for us and we realized we needed to move, we turned to Stephen Northey for help selling. Stephen understood the exact right approach to take with us. He was remarkably kind and sensitive at every turn, while at the same time coming up with a winning plan for selling our condo. Stephen's assistance to sellers doesn't end at the agreement between buyer and seller. He has checked in and helped us at every stage of the period leading up to closing. What might have been a sad and stressful time for us has instead been pleasantly smooth. When you're looking for an empathetic and knowledgable seller's agent, Stephen Northey is the top choice." - Jane

"As long as Steve's in the real estate business, I will never work with anyone else. He advocates so hard for his clients and won't steer you wrong. His breadth of expertise, knowledge of the market and experience with all kinds of properties (and sellers!) gave us tremendous peace of mind when buying our first home. He really goes the extra mile to make sure you love the place and love the price! And he's just a good human being to boot." - Stephanie

"Stephen has been super helpful in my first real estate transaction! He took the time to explain everything!" - Margret

"Steve was an amazing realtor to work with both for buying & selling. He was knowledgeable, honest, easy to work with, and provided us with a lot of much needed guidance & encouragement. With his experience & expertise I felt like we were in good hands & he could help us along. In the end, we ended up having a wonderful home buying & selling experience & a new friend. I highly recommend working with him!" - Nicole

"Working with Steve was such a great treat. He was in our corner, every step of the way in the buying of our new home AND the selling of our condo. He was such a good guide, with the perspective of someone that had been in business long enough to know how things work. He was always looking out for us and we had total confidence in him. Not only did we feel like Steve’s professional opinion went a long way in helping us with selling our condo, we had a really good time looking at possible future homes and we were really able to enjoy the process. We highly recommend working with Stephen Northey! When/if we ever buy or sell again, we would not look anywhere else for a great real estate agent." - Jodi

"Steve helped us sell our condo a few years ago. We were stunned at how quickly we found buyers and very happy with the amount. Consequently, we went back to him when we were ready to buy a new home. He was very responsive and took the time to answer all of our questions. We wound up in a competitive situation for the house of our dreams, and Steve guided us through the process with experienced insight and helpful advice. We’re now moving in and can’t thank him enough." - Nils

"Stephen is absolutely wonderful to work with. It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. He really cares about his clients as well as the community and neighborhood that we were to live in. We were on the search for a long time and Stephen took the time to look in different areas and different price points. If we are ever in the market to look again he will be our guy!" - Margaret

"I have worked with Stephen twice. Once to get my condo rented and more recently to get it sold. Both were excellent experiences. The sale was particularly stressful, as I no longer live in Chicago and was very worried about how to get my property ready and listed from out of state. Stephen did a great job facilitating all aspects from identifying a handyman to make some minor repairs, to advising on the negotiation and closing. Could not have done it without him!" - Spiro

"Steve Northey was a patient and knowledgable broker to work with, and he made an intense and complicated process approachable. He looked at over 25 places with us and never pressured us to take a place that wasn't a good fit. Many times he helped point out details or flaws in a unit that we had not noticed. Had we moved in and then found those we would have been supremely disappointed.

I really can't say enough about Steve! We will definitely be working with him any time we need to buy or sell a property and will be recommending him to anyone looking for a place!
" - Mark

"Stephen was the selling agent when we bought our condo 5 years previous to this current sale and purchase. As buyers, we really enjoyed working with Stephen, so we looked him up when we decided to move this time around.

Stephen's personality is a true highlight of working with him. He is fun, easy to be around, and super smart about this business. We also had total confidence in knowing his dealings with potential buyers would be friendly and informative. Because we had been buyers 5 years ago with Stephen as the sellers agent, we had also experienced his expertise from the other side, which obviously went well, and we chose Stephen as our agent this time around. Stephen was a joy to work with and our strategy sessions were fruitful and fun. Stephen is very smart and seasoned in the art of real estate sales, and we always knew we were in good hands. He always listened to our concerns and ideas and helped guide and advise us and as a group, we came to decisions in a perfectly collaborative way. I would recommend Stephen to any friends, family and colleagues for selling or buying a home at every chance. He really has his client in mind at every turn. The process of buying and selling homes can be very stressful, so to have an agent like Stephen on your side really takes the stress away as much as possible! We had a lot of fun with Stephen and feel fortunate to have had him on our team for this major life experience.

"Stephen Northey was recommended to me by my handyman, David Dominguez. From the first meeting that I had with Stephen, he conveyed a sense of sincerity and genuineness that was an important factor for me in deciding to have him represent my mother's property. He was very friendly, accessible, and communicative. Not all realtors are necessarily as communicative or easy to reach as he was so we really appreciated this aspect of Steve as well. He is also very knowledgeable about the area and clearly knows his work and his industry. And, finally, there is a real human element of working with Steve. It's not just a cold business transaction but is more like working with a friend. It was great working with Stephen and I would definitely do so again. I recommend him without reservation and will happily refer him to anyone in Chicago we know who is looking to sell or purchase a home. Thank you, Stephen!!" - Dan

"Stephen Northey is a fantastic agent, I can't recommend him enough! We are repeat clients -- Stephen was our agent when we bought our apartment almost 15 years ago. This time, we had a much more complicated situation, needing to sell our apartment from out of state without ever visiting Chicago. As a result, every single aspect of the sale was undertaken by Stephen, including renovations of the apartment and repairs of technical problems. He even chose the perfect paint colors. I don't know what we would have done without his help. And his attention and care were unwavering, even after the apartment was under contract. His advice throughout was indispensable and spot on, showing a very deep knowledge of the Chicago market. We are so grateful to have had someone whose judgement we could trust absolutely under rather stressful conditions"
