Above the Crowd_colorWhy to Sell, Short Sale or Purchase Your Home with Adam Balawender

“Adam Balawender is a World Class real-estate agent.  His standard of excellence, experience and attention to detail is like no other.  Adam completed a “Short-Sale” for me when no other agent would service my request.  His knowledge of marketing your property with fast turnaround results is surreal.  Adam also educated me throughout the entire process.  He highlighted the real life challenges for us to overcome, and laid out a step by step blue print for success.  My experience with Adam has been 110% satisfactory, and we would recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell a property.”

Not only is Adam Balawender very personable and fun to work with, his extensive knowledge of the ins and outs of this business and his willingness to help is what got us through our unique situation seamlessly and much faster than we had anticipated. He listens, gives sound advice, and you can tell he genuinely cares. What we thought would be nearly impossible turned out to be two of the best real estate transactions (we bought and sold through Adam) we’ve ever experienced. We highly recommend Adam to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate.

We Love Our Home – Great Bank Owned Deal You Found For Us

Adam was an excellent Realtor who was very easy to work with. He was very responsive in scheduling showings to properties I was interested in and was very patient in the 6 months, and probably 40+ properties I viewed throughout the process. He also provided helpful feedback in selecting the right house because of his extensive knowledge of the real estate industry and challenges that come with the wrong home. With Adam’s help, I found a great house near a good school, across the street from a park, in a good neighborhood, near the highway, and with CTA and Metra trains within walking distance, which were all criteria I required for my next home. I am very pleased with the home my family and I will live in for the next 5-10 years. I will definitely work with Adam again in buying any future properties.

Selling My Home …

Adam Balawender came highly recommended, and he did not disappoint. Adam was simply Amazing! I had a home that required extensive repair in order to be marketable. Adam was able to organize all the contractors I needed as well as take care of all the loose ends you can never find a ‘guy’ for. Ultimately, he was everything I could ask for in a realtor. Through his tireless efforts he brought the home to a close so smoothly, and in a timely manner that I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Above all, I would highly recommend Adam because of his experience and wealth of knowledge in the market place. Furthermore, his impeccable people skills, patience, and overall pleasant demeanor made him a joy to work with. Thanks again Adam!

Choosing-the-Right-RealtorOur Real Estate Transaction Was so Smooth – Thanks to You

In this market, I expected to struggle through the process of selling my home. My experience with Adam was extraordinary! He was patient and professional. He walked me through what to expect during the time my home was on the market, and even gave suggestions on what to “quick-fix” to make it more appealing! He made my house available on many different websites which I truly believe led to a shorter listing time! I still can’t believe how quickly he SOLD MY HOUSE! And then once we had an offer, he helped me find my current home as well. I was unfamiliar with the area I needed to move into and he helped find exactly what I needed. All I had to do was give him a list of “must haves”. I was able to browse online looking at properties he sent me, and then narrow it down to the ones that really caught my eye and set up visits. I knew once I walked into my current home I wanted it. But I wanted the best price as well. Adam knows how to negotiate! He looked at all the properties in the area, and advised me on what to offer and counter-offer. He was honest and upfront and the communication was his top priority during the process. He helped me BUY MY HOME below market value! All I can say is THANK YOU ADAM! I’ve heard the horror stories from others trying to get through the housing ordeal, but you truly made this a dream! I do tell and will tell everyone I know about you!

With Your Help We Got What We Wanted

Before my wife and I met you, we actually had another realtor basically tell us we were crazy to try to get our dream house before we sold our old townhouse. We thought we would have to give up on our dream. Then we were recommended to sit down with you and see what options we had. We were impressed with how much knowledge you had on the area that our townhouse was located in and the current rental market that we could take advantage of. And then by renting the townhouse, we would be in a position to move up as we really wanted! You sent us listings for potential properties, just like we wanted. You were patient as we went from house to house. You gave feedback on the properties regarding possible changes we could make in order to make it our own. You helped create a vision of our home! And once we found what we wanted — You found us a renter for our townhome!! That was a definite WOW for us! You made sure the entire process was smooth and easy. And once we moved into our new home, you recommended a few people who helped us update it through minor construction into the house we dreamt of! Thank you ADAM, from my entire family! You make the impossible happen!
