Tell Us Your Story

Kevin is an amazing real estate agent.

We had a lot of worries in buying our first house, but Kevin was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. He also provided an incredible amount of detail about the area, which was invaluable since we were moving from out of town. He was very responsive to our needs and was always available to talk, be it late at night or while he was on vacation in Jamaica! We always felt that Kevin was looking out for our interests and were so glad to have him by our side. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone I know and would work with him again in a heartbeat. I am disappointed only by the fact that we will not get to work with him again soon since we are so happy with the house we found!

Kevin did a fantastic job for us, especially considering we were moving to the area from out of state.

He was very responsive to answer questions quickly and set up multiple viewing appointments on short notice. It was particularly useful to have him offer to do tours of properties over facetime on his cell phone while walking through homes. This helped us make a very focused short list and maximize the limited time we had for in-person visits to the area. In the end we are thrilled with the home he helped us find and we highly recommend him with no reservations!

Kevin clearly identified the strengths and shortcomings of our Wilmette house and communicated them diplomatically to my wife, who was dubious about the potential teardown status.

He explained why it would be a teardown, zoning board limits on rebuilding, and what was necessary for a quick and profitable sale. His dealer open house had tremendous attendance. We had an offer at the end of the first open house day which he helped me negotiate up. That it was for cash was probably just luck. We listed and sold quickly and effectively at the end of the summer and closed remotely. Kevin helped with advice (& boxes), guiding us through the process. He made a good commission the old fashioned way. He earned it through effective work with potential buyers and his aging clients. I recommend him.

Michael Bliss

Extremely friendly and well spoken.

He knows the business well and does a great job of advising and negotiating with prospective buyers. Easy to stay in touch with. Highly recommended

Susan Morris

Incredibly professional throughout the entire cycle.

I look forward to working with Kevin in the future.

David Fawley

Kevin did a fantastic job for us from beginning to end.

Before finding our house, we looked at many others, and he was patient and helpful throughout. We were appreciative of his skills in strategy and negotiation, as well as his knowledge of the market. He was available morning, noon, and night, and on weekends, whenever we needed him, and always seemed eager and happy to help. We retained him to sell our condo, and felt no need to look elsewhere. A 10/10 professional that we will be strongly recommending to our friends when they need a realtor. We consider Kevin a friend now, and are already planning our first BBQ at the new house.

Pamela Souza

We met Kevin while strolling through an open house that was out of our price range.

This serendipitous meeting led us to finding and buying our dream home. Kevin is attentive, knowledgeable, reliable, and responsive. He absolutely goes above and beyond the call of duty. As first-time home buyers (and renovators!) in a new community, he was an invaluable resource for finding other reputable professionals (contractors, architects, engineers!). He is- quite simply- the best!! We aren’t planning on moving again anytime soon but if we do- Kevin will be our first call!

Lauren Rudowsky

Kevin helped put me at ease throughout my first home-buying experience.

He was a supportive presence from my initial viewings when I was thinking of moving to the area through a celebratory closing lunch. Thanks!

Todd Gingrich

A true professional with an upbeat attitude.

Scott Sullivan

Kevin was phenomenal.

He is very professional ,knowledgeable and super efficient and very available for his clients. Very energetic and upbeat and I would readily recommend him to my friends and plan to use his expertise in my future real estate transactions.

Gloria Wilder

Kevin was amazing to work with from day one.

As first time sellers he talked us through every step of the way and helped what can be a stressful process go smoothly from start to finish.

Amanda & Nathan Widing

I am leaving a second review because Kevin has now not only found us a new home but sold our old one.

The second part of the job was harder because it was a walk-up condo without parking or in-unit laundry - thereby needing the "right" buyer. If you live in Chicago you will understand how remarkable it is to have an offer on a condo in January, the lowest point of the real estate year here. Kevin is absolutely driven as a realtor, works nights and weekends, totally patient with us, realistic, endless energy and great advice at every moment. Plus he is just an extremely nice guy to be around.

Pam Souza

Kevin is a great realtor.

He went over and above as a realtor. Very personable and willing to help with any situation regarding selling the house. I live out of town and Kevin was willing to haul a lot of garbage to the curb, advice me on rental interests, etc. I would highly recommend Kevin. He doesn’t let you down.

Margaret Motz

Others in my family used Kevin's services and I'm glad I decided to as well.

I would use Kevin again.

Roland Untch

Kevin is a true professional -- I absolutely recommend him to anyone who is interested in buying/selling their property in the Chicago area.

Kevin has all that you need in this business - He knows the market; he is highly effective; negotiates very well; and is responsive any time. Kevin helped me buy a condo in Andersonville three years ago and sell the same place this year. I am more than happy that I chose him!
