Congratulations to my seller clients Aaron and Kari F! They sold their #eastvillage condo. Below is the beautiful lifestyle video we created for the property/location:
"Anant was great to work with. As a first time home owner I was new to the process. Anant was very knowledgeable and stayed in contact with me daily. I was shown multiple homes that met my budget and needs. We found a perfect condo at a great price. Anant was there every step of the way including negotiations, inspection, and closing. We were also able to close in less than 30 days! I would highly recommend Anant to anyone buying or selling a home."
"I met Anant briefly before I got started on renovating my penthouse condo near wicker park early in this past spring. I needed to sell it quickly and wanted to list it by mid-April so I spoke to a few different real estate agents. After a week or two of deliberation, Anant's team proved to me that they have the recipe and drive for success. Their online marketing tools and strategies far outshine the competition. Anant also served as a tremendous source of referrals for contractors, stagers, attorneys, locksmiths and house cleaners. As an out-of-state owner, I was especially vulnerable to be taken advantage of by scrupulous contractors and others during the critical weeks leading up to listing my property, but Anant had my back every step of the way and helped me to manage the property and keep an eye on all work being done so that the place would outshine the competition. The end result was phenomenal-- 5 offers in less than a week and a smooth as can be closing. My only regret is that I don't have more properties to own and sell in the City"
"AD is an "all in" totally hands on broker. My husband and I told him what we were looking for and he listened. One of the things that really impressed us was if we would send him a house that we were interested in seeing, he would look up all of the specs and then respond either with " I know that you wanted...., and this house doesn't have that, or he would say " it looks like it may line up with what your looking for". We believe that he took the time to get to know us and our children and he, along with us, would visualize how each house would/would not work for our family. We appreciated his attention to detail and his professionalism. We were especially grateful that he was not pushy and did not try to sway us to hurry up and pick something. We also appreciated how encouraging he was when it seemed that we weren't going to find the house of our dreams and then when we did in fact find the very house that had our names written all over it, he worked diligently to make our dream a reality. We would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends, family, or anyone that we know that is looking for a home. AD knows his stuff and is all about handling his clients business."
So, back in October 2015 I sent out my home buying process email to my client Paulina. She might have contacted me a little before that. Fast forward more than 19 months later and we have some brand spanking new homeowners! Its been quite the journey and it ended with a great townhome in Albany Park! Thank you for entrusting me to advise you in the home buying process. Additional thanks goes to the team of Gustavo Herrera (GRate lender) and lawyer Kevin Mitrick."
Congratulations to my buyer client Adam. You started as a client but I'm happy to say you ended as a friend. Can't wait to sip some old fashioned with you in that cool kitchen! Another smooth closing from Chai Charin at cennential mortgage and the legal talents of Kevin Mitrick.
"I met Anant nearly two years before we ultimately ended up closing. He initially helped me as I tried to purchase a condo on my own and was extremely patient, even after it became clear that my financial situation was preventing me from finding a suitable place. Around a year later when I was able to add a co-borrower, I continued working with Anant as he led my co-borrower and I through the process as first time homebuyers. We had TONS of questions along the way and Anant was always available to answer or direct us to the appropriate resource. He was able to work around our limited availability and got us to see units as quickly as possible. Even after we've closed, he has still proven a valuable resource in helping us navigate minor bumps and issues as we settle into homeownership."
Anant has been with me through the house buying process all the way back when it started 2 years ago. It has been quite the long process, mostly due to the combination of changing factors in what I was looking for within those 2 years and a short supply in the areas I was interested in. Throughout that time, Anant was patient, responsive, and helpful. He never rushed me in any decision and only gave me valuable feedback based on his experience and knowledge. He made every opportunity to be at every showing and pointing things out that I would not have noticed. He understands the Chicago market and did a great job in making this process as smooth as possible.
I was referred to Veronica by one of my friends. She did not quite know what specific neighborhoods she wanted to live in. However, she had a general idea of what she wanted in a condo. Even though this was a "warm" lead, Veronica did not personally know me. Through patience and being responsive I was able to gain her trust. She ended up closing on a Irving Park condo within her budget.

“Anant was very helpful in helping me get my condo sold so I could move out of the city and get on to the next chapter of my life. So I was very happy to have completed that. I think for this transaction there was a little bit more back and forth anticipated between the sellers, the attorneys and my attorney and he did a fantastic job of keeping me apprised of what was going on and letting me know what it meant, what was significant and what was not significant. So I kept my wits about me during the course of the final stages. So he basically helped me keep my sanity.”

"He did a great job of showing me properties. He always made sure that the properties we saw were types of things that I liked so we maximized my time. He was very good at determining up front whether it was worth my time to see a particular property."

"The results were that we got a new home! He did a number of things online in lining up various properties until we made up our mind. Anant came down and spent most of the day going through the properties with us and we told him exactly what we were looking for. He led us to this property and helped take care of everything from there!"

"The results I got were a lot better considering the time of the sale. We put the house up for sale a week before Christmas and Anant was sure to let us know ahead of time that we were selling at a slow period. For when we sold, everything was on point, or better than expected. I haven't sold a house in years and was not sure what exactly to expect, especially selling in the dead of winter. It went smoothly, both my brother and I were very pleased from start to finish. Anant was very precise and direct with his emails. Everything was said and done to a tee!"

"Anant was very helpful finding tradesmen to do the minor repairs on the condo before we put it on the market. I am far away from the property so he would go and let the contractors inside in order to do the work. These things were very helpful to me since he was right there in the city."
