Paul did an incredible job for us.

He was incredibly thorough with inspecting each of the homes we viewed. At negotiating time, he was very aggressive and extremely attentive to details to ensure our interests. Paul excels in his knowledge of the market, financing and construction practices; and has a great network of resources.

Paul C.

Thank you for going above and beyond with our requests.

Everything we wanted and needed was met and we are grateful we found our first family home.

Heather S.

As a first time home buyer, Paul's well-rounded expertise in all that pertains to home buying (building permits, renovations, home repairs, etc.

) was invaluable to me. I don't think there were many questions he couldn't answer - and believe me, I had a lot of them!

Carolyn T.

Paul is such a wonderful person.

He's honest and sincere about the houses he shows. The best thing about Paul is he will work around you and is always always available to answer questions and readily available ANYTIME, day or night. He's a true trooper and a real sweetheart. Even though I am a post-sale client, he still answers my calls. Paul's attitude in my opinion is "My line is always open for my clients, past or present" Yes I will use him again, and will recommend him with very high regards.

Paris J.

When we decided to buy a home, we knew little about the real estate market.

So, we contacted a friend who had recently bought a home; he referred us to Paul. Paul did an awesome job helping through the process. Once we told Paul where we were financially, and the kind of house we were looking for, he immediately connected us with a financial adviser. With the help of the financial adviser, we were able to select the right loan, reduce our closing cost and also get the best rate available. The financial adviser continually help us until our loan closed. When it came to finding the house, Paul was honest, courteous, and professional. For each home we looked at, Paul gave us advice about the pros and cons -- structure, taxes, age, size, etc. With his knowledge of home building, Paul checked out and informed us of potential problems or benefits. He was never pushy. Once we picked a house, Paul stayed on top of the buying processing; we were very happy with his work. Paul was always ready to help and answer our questions (even when he was on vacation); we were very comfortable working with Paul. I would recommend Paul to anyone looking to buy a home.

Paul S.

The one thing that impressed me most about your services was your flexibility & commitment with viewing houses with my hectic schedule of working two jobs.

It was not always an easy task but you were always thorough with the walk through/inspection & always maintained a pleasant & positive attitude with scheduling/visiting sometimes more than 15 houses in one day!

Latasha L.

My wife and I started dreaming about buying a house years ago even though we both knew we weren't financially ready.

A house caught our eye and we thought it couldn't hurt to see how much it costs. Paul contacted us promptly and said even though your not ready, contact my lender, so he can help you take the necessary steps in becoming ready. I couldn't be happier I did. Paul gave us access to the MLS and happily answered any questions we had. Even though we took years to become ready, Paul was always happy to help us and never made us feel pressured. He's very knowledgeable, honest, and sincerely has your best interest in mind. I would recommend Paul to anyone and feel confident Paul would help them find the house that they're looking for.

David P.

Thank you so much for your help with my new home purchase.

I couldn’t have asked for a better agent. Your patience with a first-time buyer was much appreciated. A true professional, your experience and knowledge were essential in helping me make the biggest decision in my life. You are truly a warm and caring man and you have helped me achieve a dream I never thought that I would. I feel truly blessed to have known and worked with you.

Jeaneta C.

Thank you so much for all your help; we truly appreciate it.

You made our first time buying a home as stress free and easy as possible. The fact that you were always there to answer all our questions from start to finish was a huge help. Your patience and quick responses made us feel very secure in using you as an agent. Having had a very unfavorable experience with another agent early in our search, we were well aware of the pitfalls and stress of having an agent who was not as qualified or motivated. Therefore, we knew how lucky we were when we found you! From looking at houses to offering to closing, we could not have been more pleased with your service. Thank you so much. We will continue to highly recommend you to everyone we know interested in buying or selling.

Brandon G.

I recently purchased my first home.

At first I was full of mixed emotions and worry until I talked to Paul Horvath. Having Paul as my realtor was the best decision I could have made. Going above and beyond to make sure I'm happy with my decision and to guide me away from bad ones. The complete process was unbelievably easy, and I was never rushed or pushed into doing anything I didn't want to. Without hesitation, I recommend Paul to everyone I know looking to buy or sell. Thank you for all you have done for me

Adnan D.

My husband and I were first-time homebuyers.

Our mortgage banker referred us to Paul Horvath of Real People Realty when we started the home search. We are very grateful for this referral. Paul is willing to go above and beyond: once offering to explore the tiny crawl space of a house in order to check the foundation! He communicated with our mortgage banker and attorney every step of the way, which provided a very smooth and generally amazing experience for us! He was always honest about different features of a home and pointed out many issues that we would not have thought to notice. He is a very genuine person, personable and relatable while remaining professional. He did not simply try to sell us a house; he found us a home. Through the entire home-buying process and beyond, Paul proved to be not only a great realtor, but also grew to be a trusted advisor and friend.

Jillian C.

Paul is honest, knowledgeable, professional and patient.

He is the best Realtor we have worked with. He helped us buy two properties and showed us more than twenty properties. We never felt any pressure. We trust Paul's knowledge and recommendations. Paul is the best!

Joanne Z.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Paul.

We often tell people that we, "lucked out," getting to work with him. In addition to him understanding the ins and outs of real estate processes, he is also knowledgeable about proper building codes and home functionality. We appreciated how he used his knowledge to offer us excellent guidance and future maintenance advice. Overall, our experience with Paul was enjoyable and fruitful. We cannot recommend him enough.

Courtney C.

Paul is a great agent.

Paul was patient and continued to view several homes with us. Even when we had snow coming up to our knees! Through the whole process of the offer, contract, inspection and closing, Paul was there whenever we needed. If I had a question, or didn't understand the terminology, I could always get a hold of him for the answer. He's a great Realtor and has become a good friend during the process. Paul will always make sure to give you his 100%. I would recommend him to everyone, and I will be!

Nikol G.

Great realtor, great person, and great services.

Was looking out for my best interest as well as working with my needs. He was able to provide accurate and proficient information with any questions or concerns I had when it came to looking for my new home. Very thorough in his work and was able to work with seller for my needs as well. I can and will highly recommend Paul to anyone in need of any realty services as well as working with him in the future

Marcus T.

Paul is a professional with a heart.

He was patient and helpful as I looked at house after house during a very stressful time in my life. He is experienced and his advice was completely on target. I would recommend Paul to anyone looking for property in the south,southwest or western suburbs.

Carol M.

I am very demanding of the professionals who assist me in my life's endeavors.

Paul acted as my Realtor on my most recent real estate transaction, and his level of service was outstanding!! I have purchased and sold a large number of homes over the past 30 years as I was a real estate investor for many of these years, and Paul is by far the best agent with whom I have ever worked. I have referred many home buyers and sellers to Paul in the years since he assisted me, and every one of them was very pleased with Paul's performance. I will continue to refer Paul at every opportunity and will definitely have him assist me again in the future if I were to buy or sell real estate. I recommend that any potential home buyer or seller choose Paul to represent them as I am certain that they will be very glad that they did!

Keith C.

Being a first time home buyer can be confusing and scary!

Working with Paul made our first time home buying experience go down without a hitch. Paul is very informative and works very hard to ensure you have an understanding of how home buying works, what to expect as well as what to look out for. Paul showed us many many homes, but we were NEVER pressured and NEVER felt rushed into a home. On the contrary, Paul even advised us against a few. My wife and I have very odd and conflicting work schedules, but Paul was great at working around that. Once we found our dream home, Paul worked tirelessly to get the deal done. My wife and I joke about wanting to buy another house just to hang out with Paul again. He's just that great. I recommend him to everyone I know.

Daniel V.

The last home I bought was 44 years ago and I was not prepared for all of the difficulties and hurdles that a buyer has to go through in today's home buying market.

Paul's knowledge and experience was a life saver as we went thought the difficult process of buying this home. They were a couple of times I felt like just giving up on the whole process, but Paul hung in there with me and kept encouraging me that it would all work out. He was correct it did all work out. I feel that you could not find a better real estate agent anywhere.

John R.

Brenda, South Elgin

"Mike is extremely attentive to detail and listened carefully to find us the perfect home.

He picked out so many lovely houses for us to look at, catering to our tastes and needs exactly. He’s friendly and easy to talk with, and made the whole process of buying a home as easy as possible. We would use his services again should the need arise!"

I felt like I was looking for a new home with a friend, not just my realtor.

Kim listened to what I was looking for and adjusted quickly when my needs changed during my search.

Michelle Stavrou

Kim was very attentive to our needs.

She was less concerned with making the actual sale and more concerned with finding something that would fit our criteria. We looked at several properties before we found this one and it exceeded our expectations to the point that we put in the application immediately.

Everything was perfect!

Devin Lampkins

I was the mortgage broker for the clients that Charley represented.

She did an absolutely great job from top to bottom. Her communication and attention to detail made it a wonderful and easy transaction for all involved.

Robert Denton

Charlotte was the best we could have asked for, going above and beyond our expectations at every opportunity

Dan and Maeren Wrenn

As listing agent for a short-selling homeowner, this office relies heavily on our Realtors in our negotiations to gain short sale approval.

I found Charlotte to be ON TOP the the game with her documentation to support property value, and diligent marketing efforts. I could not have gained the approval, and won this short sale for our mutual client without the seamless teamwork of Charley Gallovitch.

Adeline Lewis

I was able to purchase a condo for a good price in a nice location.

Melissa M

Kim helped me out like no other realtor could.

It was my first time buying a home so I expected it to be a painful process but Kim made it very easy and fun. She stayed by my side throughout the whole process and did her absolute best to make sure I found a home that I can see myself living in for years to come. If you don't choose her to be your realtor then you are making a mistake. Thanks again Kim!

David P

"Charley was amazing in all aspects of the process and we will be recommending her to anyone we know who needs a realtor!

Again, Charley was absolutely amazing!"

Chris from Darien

"Since l was a first time home owner, the entire process was new to me.

Charlotte Gallovitch helped every step of the way, was professional, yet very comfortable to work with. She educated me about all the different procedures and was instrumental in actually steering me into a house l love. When we first started looking at places, she listened to my requests, but offered suggestions that l didn't think could be an option. l'm so happy she did. Everything about my new place is better than l had imagined it would be. l would highly recommend Charlotte to anyone looking for a realtor!"

Stephen Milen

"She was the best It was a magnificent experience working with charlotte I will recommend her again she is the standard that should be set for all Realtors.

Simply fantastic"

Clarence Gaston

If I gave a full 5 star report, I would not expect you the reader to take it seriously.

We tried several realtors over the past decade to sell our home. Charley came in, said what we can expect, how long it should take, and she was on the money nearly to the day. She was the only person to price it right, with the right expectations and get it done! Dealing with her was like working with a friend. Kind, professional and full of experience. I'd recommend her to you, and I don't even know you, that's how confident I am in her.

Terry Archer

They broke the mold when they made her.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Charlotte Gallovitch is hands down one of the best Real Estate Agents I have ever had the privilege to work with. Charley, take a bow.

Steve Sibo, Attorney

"Karen Pioch was always available through e-mail or phone.

She worked very hard promoting the property through open houses and professional photos on the web."

Shari, Lake Summerset, Seller

"Karen has been more than helpful and has went the extra yard to meet our needs.

Great Job!"

Jeff, Roscoe, Buyer

"Karen Pioch was very active in making sure our house sold even though the market was slow at the beginning.

We are very happy with our experience working with her."

Joyce, Lake Summerset, Seller

"She provided excellent comps, was friendly and very easy to work with.

My property was under contract in 3 days."

Stacy, Schamburg, Seller

"Karen sold my home, even though she had to split the commission with the buyers realtor, it was her who showed it to them and got it sold!

"

Colleen, Lake Summerset, Seller

"I have recently purchased my first house and could not have done it without the expert services provided by Karen Pioch.

From start to finish, Karen Pioch guided me though a smooth and satisfying process. Karen Pioch just gets it. Karen was able to truly understand my needs and make what could be a very difficult and exhausting process into one that is very simple. Karen Pioch is highly motivated, professional and gets the job done so that you don't have to worry about it. I highly recommend that you consider Karen Pioch to lead the way in your next home buying experience."

Steven, Chicago, Buyer

"My wife and I decided it was time for us to move out of our one bedroom apartment and into our first home.

We knew what we were looking for but knew little about the actual process of buying a home. Karen was the perfect agent for us; she provided us with all the knowledge necessary to move forward in the process. We ended up moving very quickly and closed on our home less than 30 days after our offer was accepted. We wouldn't have been able to do any of this without Karen; she was excellent in all areas. We would recommend her to friends and absolutely work with her again given the opportunity."

Matt & Christy, Chicago, Buyer

"Karen Pioch made us feel comfortable and confident with her.

She is very knowledgable of the real estate business. She is professional and at the same time a good friend. She knew we were under pressure to sell because our new house was finished and we needed to close on it. She worked quickly, scheduled two open houses which resulted in a sale.We closed on both houses the same day. We are so grateful for Karens quick work, professionalism and friendliness."

Jeri & Bob. Richmond, Seller

"Karen is an asset to her profession.

She is always on top of her game. Her knowledge of houses and real estate, especially of a particular area is one of the best. She was in tune to our needs and knew what we needed and needed to see. Her skills to hone in on particulars of a house that fit our needs and wants were right on target. We would highly recommend her for your real estate needs in the Chicagoland area and outlying areas. Don't hesitate to use her skills for your next sell or purchase. We look forward to working with her again."

Paul & Diane, Glen Ellyn, Buyer

"Karen took us to see at least 30 houses, possibly more, and each day we went out she had a plan consisting of 5-8 houses we would see that day.

As time went on and we saw more houses, Karen clearly understood what we were looking for and began tailoring the suggested showings to our preferences which ultimately led to us buying a house after our first offer fell through on the inspection. Karen was very helpful inside the house letting us know things that may have to be addressed, how much time/work/money we might have to invest in a house to meet our preferences, comparable listings/sales in the area, a suggested opening offer, and general pros and cons of the houses we were seeing. Karen was also a great person to spend all that time with as she is very knowledgeable, nice, personable, funny, etc. I did not feel pressured to buy a house I did not want to buy. Karen was also very helpful with the offer, negotiations and closing processes. Karen would always get us documents we needed in a timely fashion including at night, and on Superbowl Sunday, to make sure our offer was in as soon as possible. Karen is a great realtor and I would suggest her to anyone."

Patrick, Chicago, Buyer

We first met Karen at an open house she was holding last year.

We felt comfortable with her and subsequently looked at some other homes with her. Although that didn't work out we called her again two months ago and this time it did. We especially appreciate Karen's firsthand knowledge of this community and the association that manages the lake. "Things here work on lake time" she stressed to us when we got impatient with the pace of progress. We look forward to making that transition!!"

D&D, Lake Summerset, Buyer

"Karen was great to work with, helping us through the stress of selling.

She has a unique marketing approach, different from other local realtors, which helped sell our house. She was always responsive immediately to any communications and we appreciate her hard work on our behalf."

Harry & Vicki, Huntley, Seller

"I believed her to be honest and capable of handling all aspects of marketing the property.

I was not disappointed. Also, she kept me posted on a continuing basis, offered sound suggestions which I followed. Would hire her again and would recommend her to others if the chance arises. She was tops. In short, it was excellent."

Jim, Lake Summerset, Seller

"Karen helped me every step of the way.

Solved all of my concerns about thru out our entire journey. Karen was especially on the job to get the closings to work I thank the Lord that Karen was my agent I couldn’t have done it without her"

Lorna, Huntley, Seller/Buyer

"Karen is a complete professional, she understands how to market properties in today's technology world.

Always keeps you informed, responds to questions quickly. We would definitely recommend her to all our friends and relatives."

Tom & Cathy, Lake Summerset, Seller

Lindsey T.

Evans is very professional! I inquired about a few properties, and she responded quickly, and started showing me houses immediately. I highly recommend anyone that's looking to rent or purchase a home to Mrs. Evans! You will not be disappointed!

zuser20140622174636862

Lindsay has been great in working to get us into our first dream home.

She has been critical in helping us work to get exactly what we want and also taking the time to go step by step with us on what the process entails.

daryldbrooks

Lindsey Evans is one of the greatest people Ive ever had the pleasure of working with.

After me explaining what I was looking for she quickly got off the job. Lindsey provided great options within a speedy amount of times. She took the time to go thru those options with me, which gave me the confidence I needed to make my choice. And if that wasn't enough, she even helped me find financing at a great rate. The amount of professionalism she showed, and the way she went above and beyond helps me to say with no regret, that she is in fact one of the greatest Realtors to hold the title. I highly recommend Lindsey Evans.

Wintersgp

Lindse is very professional.

It is a pleasure doing business with her. I have recommended her to all of my friends and family. Thanks for caring about every detail of my request!

andrea l powell

Lindsey is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with in spite of the many challenges that occur when purchasing a home.

Easily the best realtor I’ve ever worked with!

queenedris

My wife and I are so thankful for Lindsey and her hard work.

She was professional, understanding, patient, and helped us find the perfect home. I would recommend that any first time home buyer or anyone in general looking for a new home or investment property to hire the best real estate agent in Illinois, Lindsey T. Evans. Thank you so much.

user36175900

I am a real estate investor and Lindsey has always been very helpful, mindful and very extensive in looking for homes for me and my partner.

We had looked at many homes together and while the competition was tough Lindsey stayed strong as we proceeded with our search. She was easy to get a hold of and typically always available and responded to emails promptly. She's a hard worker and responds to needs very well. She pushes for the right deal and gives her thoughts when needed to make sure the deal works for us and was fare. She was prompt on all appointments across the Chicago Land area and has a great heart and is very motivated!

mnamor20

Lindsey represents herself and the company with grace and high levels of professionalism.

She was welcoming and relatable. She made herself available and accessible during the time we started our home search. Selling our home and buying another home can be scary and frustrating but her style gave us ease. We look forward to starting a new living environment with our family and she provides a level comfort.

fredrick long

The experience that I encountered with Mrs.

LindseyT. Evans was amazing it has me so excited on becoming a first time home Buyer. She had so much knowledge on the home and helped with my credit check, the application process and her Dream team from US Bank and associates was amazing too. I caint wait to become an home owner with the help of Lindsey Evans and Dream Team

taritaboozer

I just want to say that Lindsey was very helpful very full of information.

She really took her time and listen to my wife and I when we were telling her what we wanted. She was always flexible and work around our schedule. I would recommend her to my family and friends anytime.

TayChalla

Very informative and responsive to my needs.

I would refer Lindsey to friends and family. I was inquiring if I wanted to remain in the City or possible relocating to suburbs. The pro's and con's about me relocating were discussed in detailed. And other alternative measures were discussed as well- regarding my retirement options i.e. summer home in Chicago or out of state

feliciajohnson1478

Lindsey is a God send, she has been very patient and has kept us informed every step of the way for purchasing a home.

I highly recommend Lindsey to anyone who is indecisive, and wants information about an area that you may be inquiring about.

lwilliamson8223

When i met Lindsey, I was already reluctant because of realtors I’ve had in the past.

She was very understanding and carefully walked me through the process, communicating with me every step of the way. She gained my trust and there were no suprises! Thank you Lindsey for being patient and helping me purchase my new home. If you’re looking for somone with integrity, call Lindsey: she has restored my faith in house hunting!

eaharris29

Lindsey was amazing in every aspect of our home buying process.

She answered any questions and made this entire process comfortable. She made us feel like family and that made the process that much better. Thank you Lindsey!

Rodney and Dominique Brown Bolingbrook, IL

The selection of my realtor/broker was highly weighted on professionalism.

Lindsey presents herself very well! She wanted to sit down with my husband and I to discuss our needs but to also introduce herself. Her introduction was genuine and it made my husband and I feel very comfortable. She is approachable and understanding; which is what any amazing professional should want to display and broadcast to their clients. I’ve dealt with and worked with realtors previously. I am not honestly able to give any of them the excellent as I have Lindsey. My purchase went phenomenally well! I have every reason to believe it was because of a Lindsey and her extremely thorough communication skills with my husband and I, and all other parties involved. Lindsey made sure to keep us abreast on every move, detail, and process we encountered. Not only did she keep us in the loop, but she explained, and provided encouragement when my husband and I had doubt. As a first time homebuyer, it’s necessary because the process is invasive. I rate that she is at expert level when dealing with first time homebuyers. Dominique Brown

Dominique Brown

Lukasz is the best realtor, have knowledge of everything that you may wanna know in any house whether concerns he will really put you at ease.

Issac

Lukasz is an amazing realtor and has such great knowledge throughout the entire process.

I would highly recommend him to anyone who is searching for a realtor. His work is outstanding and he was always available if needed for a showing or a quick question. We couldn’t imagine any other realtor assisting us on our home buying journey.

Emmily

He did a great job for me.
