… took just a week…
Eric helped us buy our first home in Bucktown and made the process for first time home buyers so comfortable. He listened to our needs and wants and found great properties for us to look at, even in a time where the market seemed relatively slow. We expected to find a home we loved in 3-6 months, but it actually took just a week with Eric. He gave us great negotiating advice and at the same time was supportive of our wishes. Eric also helped to line us up with a great attorney, inspector, and offered other references as needed. We were so happy to work with Eric and have already recommended him to a few friends.
… advocated on our behalf..
As first-time home buyers, the process could have been daunting to the point of overwhelming, but Eric was patient, considerate, and worked with us for over a year to help us understand the process and ultimately find the perfect place. He is everything you would want from a realtor always respectful of our needs allowing us to set the pace. He was affable, funny, and always advocated on our behalf. We would strongly recommend Eric to any buyer in Chicago.
I relied on the Dorger McCarthy group to sell my condo in Wicker Park. I had met other realtors first, but I went with Sara & Julie because they seemed most knowledgeable of the area as well as most invested in a real partnership (hearing my needs, painting a realistic picture of the market, discussing steps to maximize value, etc). I just closed on that sale yesterday–I could not be more pleased with their service, representation, or the results.
Sara & Julie were full of smart advice from the get-go regarding when to list, how to price, suggesting affordable improvements to my unit to increase interest (I repainted an accent wall, and added a lamp/rug), and eventually putting it on the market. Their entire team (notably Eric) were communicative and responsive. I hear frustrated stories from friends who sell their places with different realtors that never report to them the day-to-day progress… I never had that issue. Dorger McCarthy kept me in the loop, and answered every question quickly. Most impressively, they even coordinated with my tenant to make sure showings worked with his schedule–and made it all hassle-free.
I’ve learned a lot in this real estate sales process. My unit took a bit longer than anticipated to sell. But, I never felt I received anything but honest, straightforward advice and they never lost confidence or steam in negotiating a great sale for me. Highly recommended.
Sara and Julie really knew the market…
We chose the Dorger McCarthy Group after initially going with another realtor. Sara and Julie really knew the market. They provided detailed printed information to us about how our house compared to others in the area and how best to bring it to market.
In addition, the group produced an excellent online virtual tour of our home with floor plan, high quality printed marketing materials showing the home, and a modern decorative For Sale sign.
The top quality selling didn’t stop there, Sara’s passion for her work showed in the added information she provided during the tours of what could be done to the home in the future and stories describing the love and care we had put into our home.
Julie handled a lot of the logistics and quickly responded to any questions or needs we had and moved the whole process forward quickly and efficiently.
All of these things enabled us to sell the home within a week!
… Bob was more than a Realtor…
I can’t sing Bob’s praises enough. I moved to Chicago from Las Vegas, and Bob did so much more than help me find my house, he filled me in on all the Chicago neighborhoods and really helped orient me to my new home. Bob was more than a Realtor, he was a true Chicago guide.
… they provided so much clarity…
Thank you Julie and Sara for your guidance and help navigating our first home buying process. From the first evening we met Julie and Sara they provided so much clarity around our options. We so appreciate the showings we went to as well to help us determine what we really wanted. Thank you for all the referrals and check-ins. I know our paths will cross again in the future.
Sara found our perfect home…
We met Sara at an Open House in August of 2005 when we were just tourists in Chicago. As we began to discuss relocating from California, we kept in touch with both Sara and Julie, and on visits, they would take us around to different neighborhoods and show us properties. Sara never tried to push us, and even with a delay in our plans to relocate, never became impatient. Sara found our perfect home. We are thrilled with the deal she negotiated for us with the developer and would highly recommend them to any prospective buyer or seller.
I was completely impressed…
I was completely impressed from my first meeting with Julie and Sara when the marketing plan for selling my condo was presented. Everything throughout the sale and purchase of my condo was handled professionally and effectively. I would definitely recommend them to anyone I know in the city in need of a Realtor.
… personable, thoughtful & professional!
Sara was available, personable, thoughtful & professional! Easy to work and talk with and she followed up with everything!
… Professionalism as it’s best!
I worked with Sara this summer to find that perfect home. I’ve worked with many agents over the years, and for the first time, actually enjoyed working with my agent. After the process was over, I was entirely satisfied. Sara really worked for me and was always looking out for my best agent. There was nothing that went wrong. Dedicated, passionate, caring and hardworking describes this team. Professionalism as it’s best!
…the ‘dream team’ of realtors!
The Dorger McCarthy Group is by far the ‘dream team’ of realtors! They provided incredible support from the beginning to the very end, and they have an intricate network of connections to make every detail of your buying/selling transaction seamless. This team goes the extra mile, and their marketing efforts with both print and digital touches really made a huge impact, and we received multiple offers on the first day of showings. I strongly advise ANYONE in the city of Chicago looking to buy or sell a home to contact the Dorger McCarthy group. It will be the best decision you make!
Sold my home in record time…
Dorger McCarthy group is an AMAZING team! Sold my home in record time and ease. Best home sale experience I have ever had. Top-notch service from day one through closing. Guided me along every important decision with accurate and concise recommendations/information, while always maintaining a very personal touch. Accurately helped determine sale price, go-to-market strategy, open house schedule, offer acceptance communication, closing process, and so on. Always felt their support, and had my best interests in mind. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
