“We relocated to Chicago last year and had very little time to hire movers, find a school for the kid and a place to live. Needless to say, the ‘finding a place to live part’ impacted the other mentioned items that we had to accomplish in a short period of time. Ted was recommended to us by one of our friends who went to college with him. She let Ted know that we needed help quickly and next thing we know Ted scooped us up under his wing and began doing his homework to help us find a place to put our furnitureâ¦literally! We had our moving company lined up and not destination address to give them.
Ted picked us up from our hotel – which was all the way downtown and by no means convenient for him – when we came out to Chicago for a 2 day house hunting trip. He had about 12 properties lined up for us to visit and was sure to include a few places to look at in the many little nooks n’ crannies of Chicago (i.e. Lincoln Square, Lincoln Park, Roscoe Village, etc). He didn’t persuade our decision in any way and was very supportive during the process.
At the end of our first day of searching, we found “IT” – a lovely condo in Albany Park. It was the very last place we looked at and as soon as our feet crossed the threshold, it felt like home. Now that we are settled into the Chicago lifestyle and have found that we can actually brave the winters and make it through blizzards, we plan on using Ted to help us buy a property.
