Mark just pulled a miracle. He sold my condo during the worst period of the Covid-19 outbreak in the city of Chicago AND at a price above any previous historical comp in the building. Bravo!
Our place was newly renovated but it takes a special buyer to dig a garden unit. An offer the 1st week fell through and they immediately contacted a potential buyer who had shown interest at the open house. SOLD just shy of our ambitious asking price. It was also a very stressful transaction since the building had pre-covid city fines that couldn't be cleared due to many court date delays during Covid. Mark was clear their job is only 10% selling and 90% anxiety management for clients. SO TRUE. They handled everything with poise, confidence and patience. Fast forward to 2023, ready to buy again and the market at our sub-$200K range is ROUGH. We ended up getting lucky with a purchase directly from a seller, so no agents needed, but Mark was still gracious enough to give us negotiation tips and advice after the inspection. I recommend this team to EVERYONE looking to sell or buy in Chicago. They are the BEST!
The team was so incredibly prepared and responsive. Mark broke down every little step for us in preparing and selling our home. His knowledge and strategy in the Chicago markets resulted in us selling our home at a price and pace we had not previously thought possible. When challenges arose, Mark and his team were quick to advise on next steps, set clear expectations and most importantly calm our nerves. We will seek out the Zipper Team for any and every future real estate transaction.
We were from out of town, bought quickly and had to do several steps remotely. Mark was able to walk us through the steps that were unique to Chicago, was available and our "eyes and ears" when we could not be there in-person and he and Kyra were incredibly helpful making sure everything was ready for our arrival from out of town. Professional, knowledgeable, and truly decent and trustworthy. Can't get much better than that!
We had both a complicated and very fast sale of our home and purchase of a 2 flat in Chicago. Our house sold after 6 days of listing it. Mark was went above and beyond, even taking care of our crazy dog for showings: when we couldn’t get off work and find a solution for our dog to be out of the house. Many negotiating frustrations on both sides of the negotiating process. Mark was very attentive, responded very fast and really went to bat for us. He talked us through many options, helped us sell at a large profit and purchase with fair and appropriate terms. Thank you, Mark!
Highly responsive, knowledgeable, and effective in their process every step of the way. My husband and I worked with several folks in his office (Mark, Charles, Diana, Kyra) to purchase a new townhouse and sell our condo, and everyone was GREAT. When it came to selling, Mark's insights regarding listing price and our overall strategy were right on. He was always on-hand to answer questions, he assuaged every concern we had during the process as first-time sellers, and he got us over the finish line completely intact--not to mention landing us an offer well above what we thought would be possible. I also want to mention that Mark moved incredibly fast, which was to our benefit. We waited to list our condo for sale until after we were under contract for a new home, meaning we had less than two months to get our condo listed, under contract and sold to avoid having two mortgages in the same month. Mark and his team pulled it off and never broke a sweat! We will definitely continue reaching out to his team for our real estate needs. We felt very cared for right from the get go, all the way until after closing. THANK YOU Mark and the Zip Group team!!!
