"Jason & Kenneth should be called the dream team. They were both truly outstanding in their respective rolls. Communication in this type of an endeavor is most important and in this respect as well as all others including keeping us in the loop at all junctures of the process they were again outstanding. Not only did they help sell our condo but they were also instrumental in helping us find a new place to live.

Jean and I both feel that in several instances they went way beyond. Their attitude and professionalism were all we could have hoped for at every turn. We just can't give them enough kudos."

"As a first time home buyer the process can be very stressful. There are so many things that you don't know, don't anticipate, and at times had no clue were involved in the process.

The Real Group team made this experience as simple as possible. David Yates represented me through the process and did an amazing job helping me understand the market and building a profile for the perfect place. This gave me the confidence to pull the trigger once I found the right home.

The teams experience and connections in the industry made the other aspects of the buying process very smooth. From recommended legal representation, inspectors, and mortgage brokers they have a Rolodex of tried and true professionals. Ensuring every step of the process was covered.

They will definitely be my first recommendation to all of my family and friends and where I will go next time around."

"We were referred to David Yates of Real Group RE from a friend and we couldn't have been happier with the choice. David was extremely helpful in all facets of the home buying process for us, including:
-extremely knowledgable and able to answer any questions we had
-always available and responsive to calls, text messages and e-mails
-prompt, respectful and courteous at all meetings and showings
-aggressive and effective in negotiating with our best interests in mind

We also had an opportunity to work with Kenneth, who assisted us at an inspection. It was remarkable how seamless these team members were able to work well with us and understand what we wanted and needed in our home.

We are very happy in our new home, but when we are looking to sell and enter the real estate game again we will certainly look to David and Real Group RE to assist us.

"This was my second rental experience working with David Yates. Dave is extremely professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and pleasant.

We asked him a lot of annoying questions and changed our search criteria a few times on him, but he just rolled with it and helped us find a great apartment.

I plan on coming to Dave first when I am ready to buy a home in a year or so."

"My wife and I worked with Real Group RE Team to purchase a townhome on the north side of Chicago. We worked with Jason, specifically, but one of the benefits of the experience was that the entire team was available to help, resulting in valuable advice that we received throughout the process from multiple parties.

Jason did a good job of coaching us throughout the process of our purchase, including:

- Understanding and helping us prioritize the attributes most important to us during our search.

- Focusing our search on properties that fell within our parameters and throughout the spectrum of our budget.

- Providing market comps during a period of low activity where it was tough to find similar properties.

- Communicating well with the the agent representing the seller to come to an agreement.

- Connecting us with a network of service providers necessary to do our diligence on the property and move towards a close (inspectors, attorneys, mortgage brokers, specialists). This included recommending a specific attorney who was well-versed in local law regarding a potential issue with the landlord of the apartment we had been renting.

Perhaps most importantly, he advised us throughout our negotiation on what issues we should care about, what should be less important to us, and what he typically sees in the market. The homebuying experience is a consuming, emotional one, especially for the first time buyer. One of the things we appreciated most was Jason's honesty throughout the process. Some of our expectations of what the seller should do were correct, but others were not or were off-market. Jason helped us understand what fell into which category. The willingness to provide us with honest feedback rather than telling us what we want to hear ultimately helped us push through and close on a tough transaction that could have easily gone sideways. The result is that we are thrilled with our new home while being comfortable that we knew the issues and expenses we were at risk of dealing with in the intermediate-term.

I would highly recommend the Real Group RE Team for anybody's real estate transaction."
