• Sam was great! The speed with which she was able to find a buyer for my condo was remarkable. The proceedings toward its sale and closing made this a smooth process. I recommend her and will work with her again! Chuck

  • All in all pretty good in spite of some hick-ups in the first offer we got. This also was a bad time to sell, but it did get sold on the second offer.

  • Joe was a patient and kind buyers agent for us. For a myriad of reasons, we found ourselves impulsively purchasing our new family home and he went out of his way to be empathetic, kind, and helpful. We are thankful for his great, constant communication, knowledge about the housing market and help in guiding us to get the house ready to make it a home.

  • Joe was a knowledgeable and confident realtor who listened to me as his customer with concerns and needs out of the sale of my former home. He is an incredible communicator and I was always aware of what was going on. With all of this, he knew exactly how to market my home and it was under contract in less than a week! I highly recommend him as a realtor representing both a seller and a buyer and already have sent friends and neighbors his way!

  • Sam and her team were fantastic. Sam was responsive, her advice was always spot-on, she was efficient and professional, and she brought a great group of professionals into the mix. And they made our home look fantastic! I highly recommend them!
    Barbara Netter
  • Very pleased with Joeâ??s help in finding a home. He made himself accessible to answer any questions which I appreciated and he also recommended great professionals for my mortgage lender, home inspection and lawyer for the closing. Would recommend his services to friends looking for a home.

  • Joe was amazing! Patient and extremely helpful with all of our needs. Moving from out of state is never an easy task and Joe was more than willing to go above and beyond to help us see as many homes as we could in one day and made the home buying process simple and easy.
    Michelle B.
  • Joe is a hard working professional! He was knowledgeable, very communicative and still fun to work with!
    Nathan D.
  • Joe was so great to work with! We were first time home buyers in the middle of a pandemic and he made the process fun and easy. Highly recommend!
    Alison J.
  • Joe was the best! A pleasure to work with.
    Brad N.
  • Sam was a great communicator and helpful partner in the process. My critical feedback is to have Sam be more available for in-person showings and such. There were many visits where we would have preferred to have someone on our team in-person with the prospect buyer. Would recommend working with Sam to anyone and would consider working with Sam again should our real estate needs come up.
    Yang Liu
  • My house went on the market on a Friday and 22 showings and 6 offers later it sold in 5 days! Sam was attentive and professional and did everything she could so that my house went viral!. The virtual tours were excellent and my neighbors even said I should have asked for more, I did get an offer over ask! Thanks Sam for helping through this without going crazy!
    Cathy VanHecke
  • Sam and Joe were both awesome. Super responsive to any and all questions we asked, and also helped turn what can be a very stressful process into an enjoyable one.
    Kristin Neville
  • Sam helped me find renters for my Chicago property for years while I was living in another state. When I decided to put my property on the market, she took care of every details and was transparent about every aspects from day one, including fees, timeline, repairs, market temperature, etc… She is a true real estate Guru and, honestly, one of the best real estate professionals I know.
    Jerome Lacroix
  • Sam is a true professional. She knows the business and, more importantly, she knows her clients. She understands what motivates them and what their goals and objectives are. This makes her extremely effective in helping get clients to the very best result for them. Sheâ??s amazing!
    Lisa Rader & Donyell Carter
  • We chose Sam because she was an lgbt agent. She seemed capable and we did end up selling our home. This being said, unfortunately Sam was not accessible by phone and when we were able to connect she would defer to the real estate lawyer. We were buying a home in Denver and the contrast between our agents was astounding. The Denver agent made us feel like he was earning his money. Sam made us feel like we were a bother. This may or may not be accepted as constructive criticism but I hope it is taken this way. Sam is smart and capable but needs to work on her customer service after signing with a client. I wish her all the luck and success with some tweaks. Thanks, brian and Kevin
    Kevin Chanashing
  • My experience with Dream Town was fantastic. Sam was responsive to every question. She made a point of telling me part of her job was education and not to apologize for asking a lot of questions. If it had not been for Sam and her creative thinking, we would have lost the house that was perfect for us.
    Kim Duffey
  • I had a wonderful experience with this sale. Sam helped guide me toward making all the right decisions to getting the highest sale price we could in a competitive market. I look forward to working with you again!
    Justin Lowe
  • Working with Sam was awesome! From our first conversation through the entire process, Sam was always available. Wheher establishing a great web presence with fantastic pictures, holding open houses, always being willing to discuss options, offering sage advice, or maintaining a positive attitude and sense of humor, Sam is what you dream of in an agent. Weâ??ve bought and sold multiple homes and take it from us, Sam is the best!
    Will Joyce
  • Working with Sam to sell our Lincoln Square condo was a wonderful experience! She responded to all of our questions quickly (first time sellers!) and provided connections to contractors/specialists when needed. Most importantly, her real estate expertise yielded multiple competitive offers within a week(ish) — incredible for a December listing! Sam is a real gem. If you want a realtor that treats you like a real person and has the guts to be honest, I give Sam my highest recommendation!
    Jourdan Huys
  • Sam provided a professional experience with personalized attention, making what can sometimes be a daunting venture, a most pleasant one! Certainly, if anyone can, Sam can!
    Kathy Fitzgerald
  • Sam & Christina were an amazing team that helped us find and purchase our dream home! Christina is a skilled negotiator, exceptionally detail-oriented, very knowledgeable advisor. We were very lucky to have her lead us through the process.
    Lisa Cole
  • Sam was great and I would use her again for any transaction
    Jeff Horvitz
  • DUDE! thorough, communicated frequently, got us above asking price and sold in 48 hours! Will use them anytime we get a chance! Cannot say enough good things!
    Trish Palmer
  • Very good experience having Sam sell our house; the staged photos and 3-D tour were a big plus. It is clear that Sam is an experienced agent, she knows the market well and she provided excellent advice during the sale process. She is also very accessible and responsive. We would recommend Sam to anyone interested in buying or selling a home in Chicago.
    Janel Denny
  • We had a nightmare of a rental property. Sam helped us rent it for several years until we were were in a position to sell. Then she made the sales process very easy for us. Thanks for 7 years of your dedicated help Sammy!
    Marc Rhode
  • Sam Powell was my agent and go to problem solver for years. She acted as my rental agent for the property I held in the South Loop for several years. During those years she found me reliable, responsible tenants and helped me with every issue I had along the way. I live in Southern California so I wasnâ??t able to manage things easily on my own. Sam found me contractors and service professionals and made the experience of being a long distance landlord as easy and stress free as it possibly could have been. When I finally decided to sell, Sam made that experience semless and effortless as well. Sheâ??s honest, experienced, incredibly capable and patient. I would do business with her again a million times over. I truly canâ??t say enough about what a pleasure it was to be able to work with her over the years. If you are looking for someone to help you buy, rent or sell, you wonâ??t find anyone better than Sam!
    Rich Abbas
  • Christina made the whole process easy to understand and stress-free. Not only did she share her expertise and concerns when visiting properties, but also partners with an experienced inspector and real estate attorney. 100% sure I will return when it’s time to buy my next property!
    Michael Kelleher
  • I thought selling my loft was going to be a long complicated process. Sam and her crew made everything easy to understand and my loft sold way quicker than I originally anticipated it would. If I ever buy again in Chicago I am definitely going with Sam!
    Jordan Sigale
  • You did an excellent job as our realtor, keeping us posted throughout the listing/sales process with prompt follow through on all of our questions and concerns (including legal matters). Your experience and knowledge of the realty market in our neighborhood was invaluable and your consummate professionalism is sincerely appreciated!
    Michael Frias
  • We love Sam! This is the second time we’ve worked with her. During the entire process, she was incredibly communicative, reassuring and kept fighting to get us where we wanted to be. I would hesitate to do any real estate business in Chicago without calling her first! Her team was just as amazing and attentive as she was.
    Bryan Zera
  • Fast and furious was the best way to explain our experience. Sam attracted qualified buyers ready to buy and positioned our condo and building to the buyer’s team as the best home for them. Regardless of the ‘rumors’ of our buildings problems, Sam made this a non-issue, because she understood the qualities of the building and condo were greater in the long term investment for the buyer. Sam is a very busy person but she would respond via text quickly and efficiently. Sam also secured a top notch photographer that showcased our home beautifully, I was proud to have my home listed as the photographer created a glamorous (still shots & video) look, that represented our home exactly as it looked in person. The images were the best I have seen, I looked around at other sites and my home photos were high-end magazine quality! The sale of our home was painless, just a tad nerve racking on my part and as I said before so quick. I would recommend Sam to my friends in the same building or in other homes around Chicago. Sam always had our best interest at heart and soothed my nervous along the way. I have not bought and sold many homes so I would get nervous about what is normal to Sam, but let me tell you, I’d do it again if Sam was handling my listing. Sam surrounds herself with the best experts in their field, i.e. legal council, photographer, all purpose handyman, etc. and this made our overall experience not only seamless but pain free of headaches and heartaches. Sam has my vote for Agent of the Year! Best Regards, Belinda Barbosa

  • Absolute pleasure working with your team. Christina was so great at every turn in the process. We will recommend your agency to ANYONE moving to Chicago.
    Scott Trevino-Wilckens
  • I have worked with Sam and her wonderful and amazing team for over 17 years. Buying, selling and renting properties out with her is the most easiest and painless real estate experience you can ever hope to have. She crosses the “i’s”, the “t’s” and every other letter. From her lightening fast responses to ever little question you have (from wherever she is!) to her awesome techie experience (shout out to Dot Loop!) is top notch. I will continue to use Sam and her team for all of my real estate needs!!

  • 5+ Knowledge, energy, support. I truly could not have acquired a “Home” more suitable to my personality and budget in record-breaking time. I would recommend her and her team in a heartbeat!!!!!

  • Sam is the best out there! She’s an amazing person which certainly shines through her work. Will continue to recommend that everyone call when they have real estate needs.
    Sean Barrins
  • Sam properly set the tone on what to expect for our listing. She offered realistic comps to help set the price. And she provided valuable input during offer negotiations. I would recommend Sam as a fantastic resource for anyone’s real estate needs!

  • Sam Powell was very thorough and made shopping for a home a very pleasant experience. Sam was very knowledgeable and shared her expertise with us. We have dealt with realtors in the past and Sam went above and beyond what other realtors do. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sam to anyone looking for a superb realtor!
    Margaret Chavez
  • It was very enjoyable working with Sam. She was very knowledgeable and accommodating with my work schedule.
    Sheila Lind
  • Sam was amazing! She bent over backwards and busted her butt to help us find our dream place. Taking us out on Christmas Eve at our request, nights, days, anytime we waved she was there! I would absolutely recommend her to friends and family!
    Jeremy Harvey
  • Sam was great. There were two other units for sale in my building; with her pricing strategy, I got an offer three days after listing. In addition to Sam’s market expertise, she made everything easy: forms and disclosures all on line; running positive and diplomatic “interference” with the buyers and their various concerns. Finally, I love Sam’s energy. She was on top and out front from beginning to end. A very satisfying experience.
    Gary Krysler
  • Nobody better than Sam Powell. Highly professional with a true caring spirit. She put us at ease by watching out for best interest and made the whole buying process a pleasure.
    Dolores Jackson
  • There is no other agent in this city that can even hold a candle to Sam Powell! Service, intelligence, humor, trust, efficiency. These barely scrape the surface in describing the amazing traits Sam brings to the table.
