"We had just started looking for our first home last fall, when a friend of ours introduced us to Greg. From the very begining Greg was honest and flexible with us; two young adults with no clue how the process worked. Greg sat with us for a long time, patiently explaining how the processes worked and what to expect in detail. Right off the bat he proved that he was a professional that loved his job and truly cared about his clients. During our search, which lasted about 6 months, the buying market was extremely aggressive! Homes weren't being listed and whenever one popped up on our MLS search results, it seemed they weren't up for more than a day before another party bid over the asking price. In a short time we saw at least 100 homes! Greg was just as determined as we were to find the right fit for our family and budget. He even drove a long distance during a snowstorm to show us a listing that had popped up that day. He didn't want us to miss an opportunity. Finally in May we found our ideal home. The negotiation with the sellers was diffucult. At closing Greg joined us, eventhough he had a family crisis the night before. Greg made our experience! He was patient, positive and determined. He never once pushed us and was so honest and lent expert advice and contacts! Our family will return to Greg when we are on the market again and I would recommend to anyone!
"Greg is an easy going guy who goes the extra mile. He negotiated our house $25,000 less than asking price. We've been looking to purchase a home for 3 years and had talked to several agents. Our problem was that we had a condo that couldn't sell. We were in a situation if we rented out our condo, we'd be losing $300/mo. and that wasn't acceptable. Greg explained to us that we would get most of the money back on our tax returns. After we realized that, we found a home, closed the deal, and moved in within 3 months. Greg is very quick with emails and phone calls. He never left us hanging. I carry his cards with me just in case someone is interested in looking for a home.
"Greg Olsen is by far one of the best realtors in the Chicagoland area. He is extremely knowledgable, professional, and totally dedicated to getting you what you want. I would highly recommend Greg and plan to continue to use him in the future. He is also a great guy and very easy to do business with.
"Greg is very attentive to your needs and wants. He makes you feel like you are his only client.
"Over the last 10 years I have dealt with Greg on many occasions....he has been both my listing agent to sell homes as well as the agent I use to purchase. Greg goes above and beyond in order to insure his clients get the best deal and the right homes. I have recommended his services to many friends and they all think that Greg is the most knowledgeable and attentive Real Estate agent they have ever used. I do not think that 5 stars is enough for Greg...he deserves 10 satrs!
"Greg has been a great realtor for us. He knows the area very well and always returns my calls as soon as he can. He is up on the current market and helpful when discussing foreclosures and short sales. I would definitely recommend him!
"I am very happy with the service I received with Greg. I didn't feel pressured but if I called or emailed, I received a response back very quickly. I would totally recommend Greg to any close friend when buying or selling a home. Great guy. I felt like he was looking out for me throughout the entire process and this was important especially with being a first time home buyer.
