This was our third time working with Joe from The Suburban Team and our first time working with Dave, and they did not disappoint! Even in the current (2021-2022) housing market, Dave helped us find a great home in the exact location we wanted, enduring a barrage of text messages along the way. He also helped us navigate through the process of having an offer accepted followed by a cancellation of the contract by the seller...twice. We will definitely be giving Dave and Joe another call the next time we move.
Our experience with Mark Allen Realty has been wonderful! I can not even express how awesome Dave has been. We are looking to move from another state and he has bent over backwards to accommodate our schedule in every way possible. We talked before we came to town and it was obvious that unlike agents we have had in the past, he actually listened to what our requirements and needs are as well as our likes and dislikes. He was able to pin point what we were looking for and only sent listings that matched. When it came to showings, he was the epitome of what a fiduciary should be. He pointed out pluses and minuses and pointed out things we had said were requirements. His patience was unbelievable! We did not find quite what we were looking for this trip, but will be returning soon and will NOT work with anyone but him. If you're looking for a realtor that is all about you in every single way, Dave is most definitely your man!
Our experience with Mark Allen Realty was phenomenal across the board. Matt connected us with the perfect members of the team to support our needs in the suburbs. As we were selling the home of my deceased mother, it was an emotional and labor intensive process but Joe and Dave were patient, supportive and efficient from the beginning. They broke down the process into manageable tasks and were extremely patient while we unraveled the sensitive nature of the sale. They are surrounded by an amazing team who helped us with staging, cleaning, and even some heavy lifting! Their expertise on the preparation side ultimately led to offers coming in after an open house the first day on the market! Joe's support throughout the closing process was invaluable as well. Joe, Dave, Matt and the entire team took an experience that we were dreading and made it easy. We will be forever grateful and recommend them wholeheartedly.
the most amazing team i know ! helping me and my family to start a new life a new home definitely recommending them to family and friends!!
Dave is the real deal! I have worked with dave on multiple real estate transactions and let me tell you Dave LoSavio is not your typical realtor, first off when something happens and things get stressful Dave always finds a way to stay calm and devise a plan to move past the obstacle. In addition Dave is always leading the industry going out of his way for he's clients so they can feel confident in the house that they buy. Sometimes I honesty think Dave became a realtor to help people because as any one that has worked with him would understand helping people clearly brings him more joy then anything else.
Thank you Dave and Joe. You are both extremely professional and amazing. We really appreciate you. You are one of the best agents we ever worked with. You will be the one to contact when the time comes and we are looking for a lake house again. Will stay in touch. Thank you.
ANOTHER GREAT EXPERIENCE with The Suburban Team at Mark Allen Realty. 5 years after Joe helped us buy our first home, my wife and I reached out and expressed our desire to look for a new home with more room to grow our family.Joe was able to sell our home within a week at a price we couldn't have imagined in our wildest dreams! We were extremely pleased & impressed and this left us with much more cash than we had anticipated to out towards our next home.After closing on our sale, we connected with Dave to seek out our next home. Despite us being extremely picky shoppers, Dave's knowledge & expertise guided us into our dream home at well below listing price & below home value! This was no small feat given the extremely limited inventory and high prices in the market at the time of our search. Dave's infinite patience and positive demeanor also proved invaluable as we are extremely picky shoppers and probably amongst the more difficult client's to work with in the low inventory environment we were working with.Kelsey worked dilligently to move both transactions along and coordinated with all parties involved including the attorney and lender they recommended (who were also top-notch) to ensure lightning fast closes with minimal hiccups along the way.Excellent service all around! I have been referring The Suburban Team to everyone I know looking to buy or sell a home for years and will continue to do so. Highly recommended!
Thank you, thank you to Dave & Joe for making our first home purchase exceed our expectations! We had no clue what we were getting into, but Dave guided us every step of the way. Praise God! They gave us vital advice through the whole process, super responsive, and so patient. I love their energy & expertise! Thank you to Kelsey, their coordinator as well. Amazing Team! -Liz & Steve
Joe & Dave are a powerhouse team! My wife and I had a fantastic time working with Joe to buy our home, and now our mom is working with both of them to sell her home. Joe & Dave both bring unique and inspiring energy. I highly recommend working with them!
Joe and Dave are a helpful and knowledgeable team. I don't think I would have been able to find a home in the northwest suburbs without their guidance, expertise, and negotiating skills (especially during COVID). They walked me through every step of the purchasing process, thoughtfully answered my many questions, and communicated frequently. Everyone I dealt with during the entire process, from their assistants to the attorneys, were professional and on point. Thank you Dave and Joe! Highly recommended.
Very helpful and caring individuals. You have some questions, they'll have some answers.
I've been working with The Suburban Team for several months. They are Knowledgeable, Responsive and Professional. When the market was most competitive these folks could effectively find homes negotiate offers and close deals. They will ask the right questions to their clients, to ensure they are doing what is right, for the short term and long term. If you are looking for an industry leader this is the team for you!
Dave is a professional both in his knowledge of real estate and in how he operates as a Realtor. He not only cares about you as a client, but uses his expertise to ensure you get a great deal. I highly recommend him and his team for your real estate transaction.
Great team that was always on top of the ball. The process moved fast and this team did a great job of keeping documents in line for a smooth closing. Buying or selling a house or condo, I would recommend this group.
My fiancé and I had such a wonderful experience working with Joe, Dave, and the team at Mark Allen Realty! Being first time homebuyers in the middle of one of the toughest markets in a long time, Joe and Dave helped us through the process and answered all of our questions (we had a ton). From our first Zoom meeting, we knew Joe and Dave would be the team we wanted to work with! They understood our vision and helped us shape it along the way. We did all of our showings with Dave and he was wonderful about communicating and helping us notice things we wouldn't otherwise have spotted. When we were ready to put in an offer, all of the steps were taken quickly.The process was not easy, but Dave and Joe really did help us every step of the way. Our journey as first time homebuyers started a bit rocky when the first property that accepted our offer ended up having some fire damage. When we decided to rescind our offer, Dave was right there with us to continue the showings and to help us reflect. Then, when we got outbid on a different property (due to the current market), Dave assured us that we would continue to be patient and persistent. The next house we put in an offer on is the one we are currently sitting in now...all thanks to Dave, Joe, Kelsey, and the wonderful attorney and inspector they recommended to us. It was so reassuring to have such a great support team, especially considering our lack of knowledge on the process. From frequent check-ins, to open-availability, to honest conversations...the team at Mark Allen Realty will be there for you as you embark on the journey of home buying!
Joe and Dave are seriously the best! They're genuine, honest, and gracious people that will make your home buying/selling experience exceed all of your expectations. I cannot recommend this team enough -- nothing but respect and admiration for the way they do business.
I highly recommend Joe Kersjes and his team. They were all professional, listened to our needs, and provided high-quality service. His entire team was great to work with through the entire process of selling our home. They made the whole process seamless.
With 2021 shaping up to be one of the toughest markets for buyers in years, you want a real estate agent who is willing to push and fight for you to get your dream home. Look no further than Joe and his team at Mark Allen Realty. From the moment we meet Joe, we felt comfortable and loved the way he approached our search. As first-time home buyers, we had tons of questions and changed our minds several times on which suburb we wanted to move to. Joe was patient, insightful and I can’t stress this enough – incredibly responsive. If there was a home that came up that we wanted to see, we often had an appointment the same day or first thing the next day, which was hugely critical considering the low inventory. As lifelong Chicagoans, he helped us better understand the different dynamics of the suburbs and was incredibly knowledgeable of every area we were looking.When we ended up making an offer on our house, we had to do it fast and Joe made sure we understood the entire process. He worked diligently with a difficult seller to cancel all future appointments and accept our offer – the same day. From that point we worked closely with our mortgage team (who was recommended by Joe and we would also highly recommend – Guaranteed Rate) and the lawyers. Joe coordinated closely with everyone and kept us informed every step of the way (we again, had a lot of questions).We ended up with a fantastic home in an incredible neighborhood. I would highly recommend working with Joe!
Joe helped me sell my condo in the middle of the COVID-pandemic even though I had moved out of the country. I felt I’ve found a great friend who is looking out for my best interests and advising me unconditionally. His composure, joviality & resourcefulness easily puts him higher than agents with decades of experience.He is extremely professional in the way he does his work, and ever ready to help with any needs that may arise. He is very easy to contact and communicate with, text, calls, emails whatever works for you, works for him too. Thank you Joe ! You're my favorite realtor 🙂
We had a positive experience with the all the Mark Allan Reality team!! They exceeded our expectations through out the process of our house being sold.
