I rarely have a desire to write reviews or have the time to read them - but for Miguel, I absolutely must. To keep it short and simple: he is, perhaps, the best agent you can find. From the time I first talked to him to the day of the closing - he was there to help: always on time, always prepared, always answering all the questions.
It took me few months to find a place I liked and then few more months just to close on it, and sometimes I was simply amazed by the amount of professionalism and patience Miguel has shown throughout the way. As someone who is buying a home, be prepared to run into a couple of obstacles, like I have. And I think Miguel was absolutely fantastic at making it as smooth of the experience as possible. He did a great job with keeping all of the parties involved (bank, both attorneys, seller) on the same page, and he would always call / email / text you with any updates or to answer you questions.
Let's be honest, you can check out the listings and do all the research online by yourself - and so you need an agent who will help you to make sense of it all, who is knowledgeable, and who will not rush you with your decisions. But most importantly, you want an agent who is a hard working, professional, and honest person. And that is why I will highly recommend Miguel to everyone I know.
Home buyer in Chicago
From showings to closing, we had a very smooth transaction, which was exactly what I hoped to experience as a first-time buyer.
I did my research, knew most of what I was looking for in my first home, and Miguel used all of my input & his vast experience to help me answer the right questions to fill in the gaps, and then craft an approach that really drove the deal on home.
The time span between the first showing & the closing was only a month & a half, and that would not have happened had it not been for Miguel's foresight in knowing how to submit a strong offer, and then once accepted, making sure all wheels were continually rolling from the buying side & the selling side.
Miguel provided both sides of a situation, remained impartial, and allowed me to make the decisions. Even in the 2-3 weeks we spent looking at properties, I never felt rushed & he was always early to showings and post-contract engagements. He was very courteous and professional, yet at the same time could talk in a relaxed, down-to-earth manner. As a 20s-something buyer, I primarily texted & emailed, and Miguel was very responsive to both.
To put it simply, Miguel is a solid, experienced agent who knows how to communicate with everyone, keep your best interests at hand, and ultimately do what it takes to ensure you can close a deal. Thanks Miguel!
Condo buyer in Chicago
I met Miguel while searching for a 2 bedroom condo online. Unlike other agents he was very consistent, hard working, knowledgeable, and a scientist of his own trade. He knew the neighborhood i was looking in very well, and always kept me updated with new listings. Not only he was patient with my needs, but he also studied the trends of the market, and conducted his own research. Miguel is extremely professional, in every situation. Home searching can be a stressful experience, but he was always optimistic, and left the decision making to me. I am now a happy first time home owner, thanks to Miguel. He not only helped me find it, but was persistent with all the little obstacles that kept us from getting into the building. I would recommend Miguel to anyone, because his knowledgeable and humble approach with customers will surely satisfy any specific search needs.
