When we first met with Adam we only had an approximate price point and a rough idea of desirable neighborhoods (northern suburbs). Adam prompted us to think about what was important for our search (old vs new construction, central air, lot size) and helped us create a personalized MLS search. From there we simply ranked properties and contacted Adam when we had a few we wanted to see. Adam was very knowledgeable about all aspects of buying a home. He was never pushy and knew a staggering amount about the neighborhoods (school districts etc) and the homes themselves. He was even able to give us rough cost estimates for upgrades we were considering for each property. His expertise was particularly valuable when it came time to make an offer. We found a home we loved listed around 250,000. We were ready to pay full price based on our limited knowledge of home values in the neighborhood. Adam did his own appraisal of the property and recommended we not pay more than 225,000 based on current market value. He helped us make an offer and negotiated a sale under his suggested price cap. We felt very fortunate to have an agent who was thinking about our long-term financial investment rather than his commission. The entire process was completely seamless. We will continue to use Adam indefinitely and would recommend him without reservation.
