"Mike helped us purchase our first home on the north side of Chicago. As an architect and musician couple, we had very defined needs and desires in a condo. Mike set up a full afternoon of condo searching for us including renting a limo to drive us to six different locations spread throughout the city. In the end, we had a very tough negotiation process and almost lost the unit a couple times. We did, however, close about two and a half months later and are incredibly happy with our find."

Michael did an outstanding job helping me buying two investment properties. He is very professional, responsive, knowledgeable, yet flexible. He quickly grasped what I was looking for and sends me highly relevant listings daily. His experience as a property manager and Board member of a number of condos affords him unique insight in real estate investment. Michael is an expert in handling distressed properties, whether it is foreclosure, short sale, or regular sale. He has a great sense of value and timing. In one instance, he got me in as the first viewer and we were able to take the property off the market in less than 48 hours. His effort did not stop there. He attended to every detail along the closing process and always had my best interest in mind. You know you are in good hands when your realtor cares more about you getting the best deal rather than a quick closing. I have lots of confidence in Mike. His dedication and thoughtful perspective were invaluable to the success of my transactions. I have recommended Michael to several of my friends. I would recommend Michael to anyone who are looking for a superb realtor. I can't say enough good things about Michael.

Mike Kravitz is a great guy. He has been renting my condos out for many years. I highly recommend him. He's been getting me promising tenants year after year that I never have problems with.

Mike Kravitz and his team provided truly exemplary service, from start to finish. Their assessment of our property's value was spot on. Our mother's condominium was listed and shown expeditiously once we were ready to sell it, and it sold as quickly as he told us to expect that it would, which was a matter of a few days. We got the price very close to what he told us to expect, and Mike and his team drove the transaction to close in record time...just a matter of a very few weeks from start to finish. Mike Kravitz, assisted by Florence De Pasquinelli, did an outstanding job. We recommend them highly, and would use them again in an instant!

Mike did a great job with my condo. He was able to sell it in under a week. He also managed all the details making the whole transaction really easy on me. I even asked Mike to manage my property going forward. Mike has my highest recommendation for all interested in real estate.Nicholas - Client, Seller

Mike is persistent and dedicated to meeting our needs during the sale of our condo. He knows the market and networks effectively with his colleagues. In addition, the real estate lawyer he recommended was outstanding. Andrew made negotiations and the abundant paperwork a breeze. Closing was organized, efficient and very quick.

Chicago, Feb. 27, 2008 To whom it may concern, This letter is to recommend Mike Kravitz for his real estate services. Mike was, throughout the entire sale process of our unit at 21 East Chestnut, a consummate professional. Since he actually lives in the building and owns several units there, his knowledge of the place is a great asset to owners. His communication with us as his sellers was constant and he made solid suggestions for us to achieve top dollar. As a result, our condo sale was for our list price in the worst real estate market in more than 20 years and was the highest sale for a one bedroom in the history of the building.We wholeheartedly recommend Mike Kravitz for his services.
Kind regards Joseph and Elke P.Joe and Elke P Client, Seller

Signing an exclusive listings agreement with Mike Kravitz led to a quick sale of my Chicago condominium.Only one week after signing an Exclusive Listing Agreement with Mike Kravitz of Gold Coast Realty, I accepted an offer to purchase my condominium. I couldn't believe it! Mike was aggressive in arranging showings, was willing to accommodate me in any way he could, kept me informed of important developments, and always got back to me promptly. In short, Mike sold my condo in a flash -- and that's the way property should be sold!Written by: Steve, former owner 21 E.
