Working with Harry was such a pleasure! His knowledge of the properties in the city made finding a new home an easy process. He was so flexible with his time and was always reassuring that he would find us the perfect home AND HE DID! He spent the time upfront to fully understand our wish list and budget. He also took the time to get to know us, which helped him to find the best property for us. Harry is the best broker For buying a home in the city.

Lyn and David Kaufman-May 2018

Harry was wonderful! He made the buying process so easy for me. I’m not an experienced purchaser and had many questions. Harry was patient and answered everything for me and walked me through the process when necessary. Such a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend his services in the future

Francine Fink-April 2016

Harry represented both the seller and me, the buyer. Such an arrangement requires
a skilled professional who can balance competing interests. The transaction was
completed quickly and to each party’s satisfaction as Harry represented both of us
honestly. His attention to both of our needs was exceptional.

Suzanne Belmore -December 8, 2015

I highly recommend Harry, as he is a very knowledgeable, fair, attentive and professional realtor. His expertise is vast and he will work tirelessly to ensure your home is sold and you get the maximum value for your property.

Harry gave us better Lakeview market analysis than other brokers had previously provided and he was good at working with our needs & setting our expectations. The marketing and listing we thought was phenomenal, pictures were great & description included very good, detailed insights/sell points for the area surrounding our condo – way above & beyond “just steps to the ‘L’ and lake”. Had an offer within days, Harry was very helpful in negotiation (very good for 1st time sellers like us) and the closing was smooth, even with us now being out-of-state

We chose Harry as our agent after interviewing 3 other brokers from other agencies. What impressed us is that he was prepared with relevant comps and good knowledge of selling in our neighborhood. The sale of our home was complicated–not Harry’s fault–and throughout the process he was focused and attentive. I always felt that he was representing us in the best way possible. I recommend him highly.

We had the pleasure of working with Harry Maisel over the course of nine months through several extremely difficult transactions in our goal to purchase a multi-unit property in Chicago. We chose Harry because of his expertise and breadth of knowledge in dealing with multi-units, specifically properties requiring rehabilitation. Throughout the process, Harry proved to be extremely knowledgeable in understanding and communicating to us the value of a property and the extent of work we would need to execute in order to accomplish our goals. He was able to give us solid advice on things to look for and things to be wary of and was very insightful in whether or not a purchase would be a good deal. Despite several properties falling through, Harry proved to be extremely patient with us and respectful of our buying constraints during the process, always making sure to communicate well with us.

Ultimately, Harry did help us find a wonderful 3-unit property. It was an extremely difficult process to purchase the house due to external issues such as a flawed appraisal and last minute repair issues that came to light, but Harry stuck with us every step of the way, explaining our options and helping us make it happen. By the end of our experience we can say that Harry was not only a fantastic agent, but a great friend as well. We can’t thank Harry enough and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a trusted partner and determined resource in buying or selling a home!

Working with Harry has always been a pleasure for me. He quickly understood what I was looking for in a home when we were on the hunt. And many years later he made the selling of that home very easy for me as I have since moved to another state. His knowledge and experience has always made me feel I was in good hands.

“Harry was amazingly diligent, understanding, patient, and knowledgeable. We had a great experience getting to know Chicago and Harry throughout the 8 MONTHS he showed us around. He followed through with our requests immediately and in a timely manner, and he never lost hope for us in our search. We can’t say enough about Harry, and I’m sure we will be using him again in the future when we need to move on from the wonderful place we just purchased. And we will certainly refer him to anyone we know who is in the market to buy or sell.”

“From out first phone conversation I felt that Harry was going to be the realtor for us. We were looking for a condo for our daughter to live in while in grad school. Harry really understood what type of property we were looking for. He actual knew better than we did since we were not familiar with the area and the condo market. With Harry’s guidance we quickly became familiar with the area and the type of property that was best suited for our daughter. He also helped us by asking questions that we didn’t know to ask about the building maintenance and cash reserves. Some of the best advice we got from Harry was to be patient and know that the right condo would go on the market. Harry helped us with the inspector, attorney and even gave some referrals for painter, electrician etc. Throughout the entire process we felt that Harry gave us his honest opinion and expert guidance. Harry Maisel was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him!”

“I met Harry through a friend who had hired him to sell her parent’s condo in 2010.  So in early 2011 when my daughter decided to purchase a condo it made sense to work with Harry based on the positive feedback that we had gotten from my friend.  After all, Harry’s area of expertise is selling/buying condos.  During 2011 Harry showed my daughter many condos and continuously emphasized how important is was to look at many different properties before making a final decision and to remain patient, that eventually the right condo would come along.  This turned out to be excellent advice.  Harry knows which condo buildings are financially solvent and well managed and this is critically important information for a condo buyer. By the end of 2011 my daughter was moved into her dream condo.   Then, in early 2012 I made the decision to relocate to Chicago from Ann Arbor, Michigan, to be closer to my daughter; and yes, I contacted Harry to help me find my condo.  Harry worked with me throughout 2012 while I worked toward the goal of selling my home.  Harry even helped me find my realtor in Ann Arbor, Michigan who sold my house in 48 hours after listing it.  Harry would schedule eight to ten showings during my periodic visits to Chicago.  He even showed me condos that already had contracts to give me an idea of how I could improve a condo to make it my own place.   I can’t say enough good things about Harry.  He is thoughtful, asks questions about you, what you want in a condo.  He gently probes for details to find out who you are . . . all of this is to better serve you the customer.  What I liked best about working with Harry is that he is neither a pushy nor aggressive salesman; he doesn’t push you toward a purchase that may not be a right fit.  He’s very patient!  He knows his trade and by the end of 2012 I was the proud owner of a condo one half mile from my daughter’s with stunning views of Lake Michigan.  Thanks Harry”

“Harry Maisel was referred to me by a mutual friend to help me purchase my condo in the north side of Chicago.  He took the time to listen to what I was looking for and delivered quickly.  He was very patient, responsive, accessible and personable. He only sent me properties that fit my criteria which showed me his respect for managing my time.  I viewed my condo and closed on it in just over a month.   I couldn’t have asked for a smoother, easier process.  He even went above and beyond for me by changing a flat tire on my car in what was one of the coldest days of the year!  He has also proven to be a resourceful tool for many kinds of referrals.  I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in finding my new home.  Highly recommended!

“Bob and I want you to know that you are one great realtor! The work you put into selling 1040 West Wellington, your consistancy and tenacity were fantastic particularily during this difficult economic time.
Thank you very very much. With respect and best wishes”-

Kathleen and Bob Lombardo-Chicago, IL.

“Harry was my real estate agent for the recent sale of my condo in Roscoe Village and for the purchase of a new home on the Gold Coast. He acted as a true consultant throughout both sale and purchase transactions. While preparing my home for sale, Harry provided me with some great advice for staging, and helped me choose just-the-right color of stain for the rooftop deck. His follow-through during the selling process was terrific and his advice to me when purchasing my new home was paramount. Additionally, Harry provided me with some excellent real estate-related resources during both sale and purchase transactions that helped me enormously. I will definitely recommend Harry to my friends and colleagues in the future.”

Judy McDonald-Chicago, IL.

“We were so happy to have Harry as our realtor.  He did an amazing job and literally found us our dream home.  In addition to working around our bizarre schedules, Harry also helped us keep our sense of humor after seeing some “interesting” houses!  At least we could all laugh throughout the process.  Harry was very quick to respond to questions and concerns and stood with us every step of the way.  We are so pleased with the end result and would definitely recommend him to our family and friends.”

Melissa Grant and Brook Enger-Chicago, IL.

“We are writing to express our appreciation for the services rendered by Harry Maisel from Prudential Rubloff Properties.  Our experience with Harry is one that not only led us to find our first home but also led to a friendship.  My husband and I were new to the Chicago area having lived our entire life on the east coast.  After going through a bad experience with another agent we were introduced to Harry. We knew immediately that Harry was a great fit for what we wanted in an agent.  He is very professional; knowledgeable, and patient; we could not have asked for a better real estate agent to find us our first home.  Harry listens to what you are looking for in your home, and only shows you properties that fit your needs.  He also does not judge or scrutinize but will give his honest opinion when asked.  We felt extremely comfortable with his friendliness and patience. He made himself available when we needed him.  Harry also suggested great resources in regards to financing, home inspection and attorney in which all were a success with the individuals we picked from his recommendations.  Through the process we built a long lasting trust with Harry Maisel. We would highly recommend Harry Maisel’s services to others and plan to utilize his services ourselves again in the future.”

Nicholas and Jennifer Williams-Chicago, IL.

“Harry Maisel is a superhero!  He transcends the definition of real estate broker!  He worked with me diligently, thoughtfully and patiently to find the right home for me.  He exceeded every expectation.   He was my trusted advisor (still is).  He listened to my needs and went to great lengths to show me relevant properties and took the time to carefully walk me through the process of purchasing my home. Harry went above and beyond the ‘call of duty’ on every level.  From working around my busy schedule to connecting me with an amazing people and resources, I could always count on Harry for sage advice and sound recommendations. Throughout the entire journey of finding and securing my condo, Harry was beyond a delight to work with.  He’s smart, witty and, most importantly, trustworthy.   I highly recommend him!!!!!”
