Malek helped me sell my condo in November 2015 and he was very professional throughout the process. He provided thorough analysis of market prices, potential listing and selling price and expected cost of sale, which helped me make an informed decision on the listing price and during negotiations. With Malek’s help, we were under contract in 30 days and we sold for higher than any other similar unit in the building.
Malek was very consistent throughout the entire home buying process. Despite having some tough luck on losing bids in the beginning of my search with the market being so competitive, Malek did a really good job of giving me fair expectations, staying patient with me, and understanding my concerns. Malek even advised me to walk away from a property I was ready to bid on when he sensed a minor level of hesitation telling me that he wanted me to buy a home that I loved and had zero reservations about, regardless of how long our search took. I would recommend Malek to anyone searching for a home in the Chicagoland area for his expertise of the market, understanding for his clients wants/needs, and commitment to his clients
Malek is professional, knowledgeable and always responsive to requests and inquires. He knows the downtown area of Chicago and the real estate trends that are important to buying or selling a home in a timely manner. He uses his knowledge to effectively maneuver appropriate pricing and his attention to detail is crucial in closing the deal!!! We enjoyed working with Malek!
I hired Malek to rent my Condo and he was successful in renting it within 3 weeks. He was timely in his responses to my inquiries and very knowledgable about the real estate market in Chicago and in particular the Streeterville neighbourhood. Malek was very professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend Malek to anyone looking to sell, buy or lease in the Chicago market
Malek was great!!! We put our condo for rent, and Malek found us a tenant within a week. It was a pleasure working with him. He is professional and easy to work with.
