Client Testimonials

My girlfriend and I met Dina after we stumbled upon an interesting zillow listing for a house in Highland Park. We decided, on a whim, to take a look, so we called the number and set up a viewing with Dina. We didn't love the house as much as we thought we would; however, we all hit it off immediately so we asked Dina to show us more homes. Over the course of many, many months we saw a lot of homes and made a few offers that didn't go through. We often took our time when viewing a house, yet throughout the entire process, Dina never rushed us once, nor was she ever pushy. She is a pleasure to work with and made our buying experience enjoyable - in what is typically a tedious and stressful process. In the end, we finally found the perfect house and Dina went above and beyond to make the purchase happen for us. It was not an easy process, but Dina made it seem like it was. Then we needed to sell our existing home, so we had Dina handle that as well. We took her advice for staging and doing minor repairs. We listed our home and got a fantastic offer 4 days later! Everything went through without a problem. And now we could't be happier with our new home! We would recommend Dina to any of our friends or family!

Ben was a fantastic realtor to work with. There were four particular qualities that I respect most about Ben: 1) responsiveness, 2) authenticity, and 3) likeability. and 4) resourcefulness 1) Responsiveness: Ben was always quick to respond to a text or a call, whether on a weekend or during the workweek. He took great care of me as a first-time home buyer and made sure that everything was clear throughout the process 2) Authenticity: In every place we visited (and there were multiple), Ben provided an objective opinion on each one, based on some of my preferences. He walked me through aspects where buyers trip up, and provided solid advice on whether he thought that particular place would be a good long-term deal. 3) Likeability: Ben is a genuinely nice guy - funny, affable, and down-to-earth. This definitely helped make the process all the more easy, removing the stress that buyers often have when looking in a competitive market. 4) Resourcefulness: The vast majority of realtors come with a network of support services, such as lawyers and mortgage brokers. Ben's went above and beyond my expectations to make sure everything throughout the process was simple and straightforward.

I started looking to purchase a condo in Chicago (river north) this past November with no experience and I really wasn’t even sure where to start. I went on Zillow and requested to tour a few properties, and Zillow reached out to connect me with Ben. We had a preliminary phone call to discuss my criteria in condos, and Ben put together an online portfolio of well-curated selection within the next two days - I was able to easily mark each property as either “interested”, “maybe”, or “not interested”. I have a pretty demanding work schedule, but I still wanted to see over 20 properties before comfortably making my decision, and Ben was extremely accommodating. He scheduled a visit for 17 of the properties I was interested in all on one single Saturday. I believe on average, potential buyers view no more than 5 or 6 properties a day. I really appreciated him understanding my need for efficiency and being able to have a whole day of his schedule devoted to me. Really, seventeen! I’m sure any other agent would have tried to talk me out of it or gotten worn out towards the end, but Ben was still as energetic and focused as always, reminding me about details from properties that I might have forgotten.

Michael was amazing! He took calls and answered questions at my schedule, which was sometimes very much outside of business hours.

Service level went above and beyond from start to finish. Ben and his team have detailed knowledge of the Chicago real estate market and specific neighborhoods. Given the concierge level of service we received from Ben, we would work with him again.

Seller

Ben was professional, friendly and helpful, not to mention very knowledgeable from the first moment he began to search for the right tenant for our condo in the South Loop. He went above andamp; beyond the duties of a real estate agent to make our property attractive to potential renters.

Jeff & Gail R.

Ben went above and beyond to help me make my condo look its best, to get the best promotional materials, and to get the most visibility with potential buyers. We started receiving offers within 24 hours of the first open house, and within only a couple of days I accepted a very nice offer. Ben definitely works very hard for you, he does excellent work.

Seller

Dina was absolutely wonderful. She has excellent knowledge of the market in our area and was extremely attentive to our needs. She made us feel like she was part of our family and provided us with all of our options in a timely and responsive manner. If you are looking for someone who genuinely cares and has your best interests at hand...Dina is the person for to work with.

Seller

Ben is an amazing realtor! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a new home. He was attentive to our needs and always made us feel like a priority. Ben always made time for us and set up showings in a timely manner for homes that met our search criteria. He was extremely knowledgeable and guided us through the negotiation process with ease.

Lindsay

Dina helped us with the purchase of our first home in spring-summer 2018. Dina is lovely person and a great professional. She was very responsive to our preferences and budget limitations and we're very happy with our new home. All of Dina's work was timely, complete, and thorough, and she was always available to help explain the nuances of home-buying to first-timers.

Buyer

Michael was so great to work with. I was coming in from out-of-state looking at condos and Michael really helped me find a number of places that matched my criteria. We ended up in a multiple-offer scenario, and Michael's advice helped us get the condo we wanted at a great price. Once we were under contract.

Seller

Ben helped me both with finding a tenant for my condo as well as selling it. I don't live in Chicago anymore so I really appreciated how response and proactive he was. He always kept me up to date on how things were going and was very knowledgeable about the area. I trusted that Ben was working hard to find us the best possible tenant/buyer and in the end.

Seller

I cannot say enough about the positive experience I had with Ben! He is so incredibly knowledgeable, responsive, and enjoyable to work with. I was a first time buyer so I had many basic questions that he always answered promptly and patiently. He consistently went out of his way for me and did so many things that were clearly above and beyond...without hesitation or being prompted to do so. He was a solid negotiator who comfortably pushes back when necessary and always had my best interests in mind. Ben and his entire team made this very overwhelming process one that was actually enjoyable and one where I felt like I was the only one he was working with! I would highly recommend Ben for any of your real estate needs.

Buyer

I write this review in great support of Ben Lissner. Ben truly is the BEST! In a fiercely competitive real estate marketplace it’s important to select and identify the very best individual to represent and sell your condo. Ben’s responsible approach is keenly focused on developing an authentic relationship that serves the best interests of all parties involved. Ben truly cares about his clients, he’s an expert negotiator and extremely FAST at everything he does. Bens finesse and polish in an interactive competitive real estate market is in one word, remarkable. Ben has a skill set of his own and he is a true pace setter in the real estate industry. Ben naturally conducts himself with a great deal of grace, class, and integrity.

Seller

Michael was great to have by our side for the purchase of our first home. He's easily accessible and made the process easier to navigate. Throughout the nearly 3 dozen homes he showed us, Michael was informative and transparent with his suggestions, while making it fun. In what little time he wasn't able to meet up with us, he had his equally professional partner, Ben, help us out. Together, they are a great team and Michael took the time to understand what we wanted in a property, so our long journey of hunting wasn't nearly as fatiguing as it should've been. When we finally visited our perfect place, we immediately placed an offer and were greeted with a multiple offer situation, which horrified us.
