We had a great experience with Aaron. He went out of his way to secure us as clients when we were not even in the market to purchase at the time. But having spoken with him one time, he sincerely paid attention to our brief talk and searched for our dream house without being prompted! In the end, we are in the house of our dreams, and he was a great asset with his knowledge and excellent referrals in all areas from lenders to lawyers! He was our Realtor Soul Mate! Thanks for everything, Aaron! Can’t wait to celebrate! April M.
As first-time home buyers, Aaron helped guide us through the entire process. He was very patient with a needy couple like us and worked extremely hard to find the perfect home that fit our needs. The strategy he created, his eye for detail and ability to understand value was part of the reason we were able to identify the right home for us. We recommend Aaron to every family member or friend and he will be our first call when we decide to find our next home! Dana S.
Working with Aaron has always been a great experience, makes the process fun and he is extremely professional. I’d never even think to use anyone other Aaron or anyone he associates with. He not only does an A++ job himself, but has many connections who are all the cream of the crop in their professions. I’m very thankful and appreciative of having the opportunity to work with him. Thanks again Aaron, you’re the best!!! Mark F.
I’ve worked with Aaron 3x on my buying AND selling (temporarily leasing) needs in Chicago-Land. Every time I work with Aaron I feel like he always has my best interest in mind. I recently relocated out of Chicago-Land and was unpleasantly surprised to find out how much better Aaron treats his clients versus other realtors. I asked him to start working in a new market! Thanks Aaron – hope to come back to Chicago again one day to work with you again – will always recommend Aaron. Tess D.
We had listed our condo with another broker who could not get more than a few people in to see the property. After two months of inaction, we fired our agent and hired Aaron (who had recently sold a property in our same building). After 1 week, he not only had more people in to see the property than the previous agency had in 2 months, he managed to trigger two offers! We listed the property at the same price point, but he had re-marketed the property in a really effective way, and aggressively worked to bring folks in. We highly recommend him! Brian C.
I cannot say enough about how excellent Aaron was as our realtor in our home search and buying process. My husband and I originally started out using someone else but our financial adviser said we would be crazy to not work with Aaron. And once we begun working with him, it became immediately clear that Aaron was going to be the person to help us in making the best decision from both a life and investment perspective in choosing a home. We initially had our heart set on the South Loop or River North in Chicago but he suggested we widen our search to include growing West Loop neighborhood, which is where we eventually found our new place. Aaron takes the time to get to know you and he’s incredibly easy to work with. He is an expert on the Chicago real estate market and was able to give us great insight on each and every property we looked at in terms of the investment, neighborhood, and other considerations such as what type of work a place would need done to make it both livable and easy to sell in the future. He also was wonderful in taking us through the entire home buying process and set us up with a great team of both a mortgage broker and lawyer once our offer was accepted. He was also incredibly responsive to my excessive emails, calls, and texts when I had questions or concerns, which is invaluable when you are doing this for the first time. Overall, my husband and I are thrilled with our first home and we wouldn’t have found it, or have had as smooth of a purchase process, if we hadn’t worked with Aaron. Gab M.
Aaron has a calm and personal touch that makes you feel comfortable even in stressful scenarios. His market knowledge and overall vision results in a perfectly negotiated deal. We have worked with several agents over the years, and Aaron blows them all away. We are very happy to have him as our agent. Jonathan P.
Aaron is the man! We first met him when we bought our home—he represented the sellers. Flash forward five years later and when we made the decision to list our home, I remembered Aaron’s professionalism and good-natures demeanor, so we sought his services. After only a few days listed he had a weekend full of showing and multiple offers. The rest of the process was easy, painless, and Aaron could not have been more of a pleasure to work with. Great guy, strongly recommend Aaron! Kip W.
Aaron is the ultimate professional. Attention to detail is his primary concern. The photographer he provided was very considerate of our home and took a great selection of photos to be placed in the marketing brochure…which was way beyond our expectations. Everything was done in the most complete and effective way. His advice and direction in the pricing of our home and the subsequent negotiations was right on and consequently quick results are the rule. No one could have made the process of selling our home any easier. Kathy F.
We took Aaron on more than 50 house tours in 3 different towns before finding “the one.” Through it all he was patient with us and remained optimistic and committed to helping us find the right house. He was a fabulous seller’s agent too – he beautifully staged our house. We sold fairly quickly for a great price. Nicole H.
Aaron has an amazing ability to see beyond the current condition of a property and has incredible vision for what it could be. He is patient, always looking out for only our best interests no matter how long it takes. He always wanted us to buy an “opportunity” not just a house. An amazing full-service experience from beginning to end! Ryan J.
Aaron was fantastic. I live abroad and had no reliable contacts in Chicago to assist with the sale of my place. Aaron oversaw the whole process, put me in contact with reliable associates to ready the unit, and effectively planned the right strategy and timing to get the home on the market. Andrew R.
I couldn’t be happier with how Aaron guided us through the entire selling and buying process. We felt like he was with us every step of the way, and truly had our best interest in mind. There are some confusing aspects to buying and selling, but with an excellent bedside manner he was able to explain things to my wife and I in terms we could understand. The true testament to how well he knows the process and the market is that our home sold in 48 hours. Once the sale was complete, Aaron searched for homes he thought would be a good fit for us, and ultimately, we found and purchased our dream home. I would recommend Aaron to anyone I know, friends or family, without hesitation. Dave L.
Aaron was truly amazing in every regard. Before finding Aaron we had gone through two other agents, neither of which worked out for us. Aaron knew the area well, helped us immensely with working through the process of buying a home, and genuinely seemed to care about finding the right home for us. I never felt like he was selling us on a home just so he could move on to the next client. He was very responsive, on weekends and evenings as well as throughout the day. I can’t remember ever needing to call or email more than once, and rarely did I not receive a call or email back within a few minutes. Negotiations with Aaron were very helpful. He did a great job of giving us perspective, explaining the process, and hearing what our concerns were throughout the process. His even keel and reasonable approach kept us from straying too far from the ultimate goal, finding the right home for us, not just a suitable home or a house that we were just okay with for the time being. I cannot recommend Aaron highly enough, and I will continue to recommend him to anyone I know looking for a home in the greater Chicago area. Todd P.
Aaron was very motivated and energetic. He was professional and worked very effectively and efficiently to sell our condo quickly. We were impressed with his expertise in our neighborhood. He went above and beyond to help prepare our condo for sale and worked tirelessly to show our place. He had it under contract in less than one week. He made what could have been a difficult process very easy. Cameron J.
Aaron was instrumental in helping my wife and I purchase a condo that we absolutely love, and trust him unconditionally with anything regarding real estate. He is an exceptional resource, and someone I would consider a real asset to have in purchasing or selling a home. His expertise not only transcends the marketplace conditions and direction, but helps you to proactively understand the growth of the neighborhood for that property. His knowledge and insight helped us to know what improvements the unit will need over time, and what to focus on for the future. In a transaction-based marketplace, it is comforting to develop a lifelong relationship and friendship with a real estate professional we can always trust. Matt T.
My husband and I came to Aaron in the summer of 2012 when we were looking to buy a 2-flat – we would live in one unit and rent the other out. We were ready to put an offer on a place and Aaron offered for his contractor to come out and take a look at the place before we did so. After seeing some major problems, Aaron gently recommended we pass on this place. He was not just trying to make a sale and truly cared about the property that we would live in.
2 months later, we found out that we were expecting, and the timeline to find a place shortened. We were active in finding places online, and Aaron was always very prompt in getting us showings at the various places we wanted to check out. Throughout the whole process, he answered our questions and eased our concerns (as it was our first home purchase). His recommendations for home inspector, lawyer, and lender were spot on- we would recommend using all of them again. He always responded to our text messages within minutes and knew a lot about the areas we were looking to buy in (Lakeview/Roscoe Village/Lincoln Square).
All in all, Aaron made the process of buying our first home much easier than we had imagined. We are very pleased with the property we ended up with and would recommend Aaron to anyone! Lisa C.
My husband and I had a great experience working with Aaron. From our very first meeting he was prepared, polished and easy to work with. I really appreciated how honest he was with our expectations for a new home based on our budget and desired location. He was patient as we spent months looking at homes, and taught us how to spot any possible future issues with a property. I also appreciate that I never felt pressured to buy a home (even after scouring our desired neighborhoods and repeat home visits) He felt more like our knowledgeable friend in Real Estate than someone pushing for a sale. Aaron is knowledgeable not only with the many nuanced neighborhoods of Chicago, but also with basic home construction. He was able to give us the pros and cons of building materials, neighborhoods, and rough estimates on possible home repairs. This was very valuable when viewing homes, good to not always be distracted by a fancy staircase or showcase kitchen, and to understand issues that might be lurking behind a pretty facade. Aaron really listened to our desires and paid attention to what we liked and did not like in a home. When he finally called to say, “I just saw a house that I think you will love”, We immediately believed him because he had developed such a sense of our style, desires, and needs. Aaron was right and now we are very happy in our new home. Aaron also guided us through the negotiation process and made it much less stressful than it could have been. Once again, he explained the pros and cons of various negotiation tactics and made sure we had the all the information we needed to put an offer in on our home. He offered his expertise but ultimately left all decisions in our hands, which I really appreciated. He was knowledgeable but never pushy and we our very pleased with his work. Barry H.
Third time Aaron has helped us buy or sell, and it was as smooth as ever! He has a great team who go the extra mile, and our home was sold in the first week on the market! Aaron’s a pleasure to work with – I highly recommend him! Christine F.
Mary helped me find my home off market. She leveraged her contacts to help me find something in a booming area where a lot of competition existed. I have worked with other realtors who just go through the motions, Mary surpassed my expectations and was very hands-on and present with the entire.
It was a real pleasure to work with Mary! We had a large, somewhat unique house that would only appeal to a relatively small percentage of buyers. Mary was so responsive, optimistic, reassuring, and capable, and sold our house in a very short time. She gave us great advice on upgrades to the interior that fit our budget and paid real rewards by dramatically improving the appearance and appeal of the house. We have moved a lot and bought and sold a lot of homes. This was the best experience in all of those transactions. Mary is a real pro, and as my friend who recommended Mary to me said, a real “Go getter!”

Mary was a great realtor! She was knowledgeable, very responsive, and always willing to go the extra mile. We were in a multiple offer situation and I was very impressed with how Mary handled everything & best of all my offer was chosen! I would definitely recommend Mary to family and friends.
Mary is an excellent real estate broker. Knowledgeable in every aspect of the process whether you are buying or selling a property. Her enthusiasm and energy level is beyond compare and you can tell that she loves her job. She was a true professional through and through. In my opinion, you cannot find a better Real Estate Professional.
Aaron was wonderful and helped us find our dream house! He also helped us to sell our condo… We were able to do that in 2 days and we got multiple offers at our list price. He is truly wonderful!
Mary was seriously the best. I have recommended her to everyone I know. Looking for apartments can be an exhausting process, but Mary made it enjoyable for us and we LOVE our new home! Mary came with us to every showing and always gave an honest opinion. We fully trust her and couldn’t be happier.
