Ken & Curt – West Loop Condo Sellers

Doug Stachowiak of Best Chicago Properties has outstanding knowledge of the West Loop Area that allowed us to price our penthouse property at the right level and maximize our returns. The marking of the unit was exceptional: They took photos of our large terrace from elevated locations, showing off well this major asset of the property. Doug’s calm, well-informed and well-timed descriptions of the process helped us move confidently through several critical junctions in the selling process. I enthusiastically recommend Doug and Best Chicago Properties.

Keir – Chicago Condo Seller & Home Buyer

We would highly recommend Doug Stachowiak at Chicago Best Properties West Loop. He worked diligently to get our condo sold and find my boyfriend and me our new suburban home. Doug was professional, knowledgeable and passionate as he worked diligently to sell our condo. He was available for any showing and did multiple open houses to get the traffic through the unit to find that right buyer. Doug also worked closely with us to learn what our needs were for our new home and found the perfect match. He has a keen eye for details that ensured everything in the home was working and done well.

Julianne – First-time Chicago Condo Buyer

We had a great experience working with Best Chicago Properties, specifically Chuck Gullett. My husband and I were first-time buyers and Chuck helped make the process so smooth and enjoyable. He is quick to respond, honest, and genuinely cared about what was best for us. He got to know us pretty well, so he was able to authentically help us narrow our search so that we never wasted our time. He was always able to answer all of our questions (and we had A LOT!) with patience and insight. We completely trusted him throughout the whole process. On the day of our closing, it was so comforting to us to have him by our side as we experienced such an exciting moment together. I would recommend Chuck to anyone looking in the Chicago area, as he was so helpful, connected, honest, personable, and incredibly knowledgeable.

Arturo – West Loop Loft Buyer

We had the privilege of working with Doug Stachowiak buying our first home. The experience was awesome and stress-free. Doug sat us down the first day for an interview to get an idea of what we liked. 

The first trip out, we were on the right track. We saw about 15 properties over 3 visits and we ended up closing on the very first place we saw; a testament to Doug’s intuition.

If you’re in the market, stop by and chat with Doug.

Bethany – West Loop Condo Buyer

We just bought our first place in the West Loop and it is all thanks to Chuck Gullett! 

My husband and I have been looking at different properties and neighborhoods on and off with Chuck for about 3 years. This summer we started our search again and just couldn’t seem to find a place we loved. One day Chuck mentioned a beautiful place that was just about to go on the market after a big price drop. 

We went and checked it out that night and completely fell in love. We put in our offer the next day and they accepted. We were in shock!

We could not be happier with our new place and all the hard work Chuck did for us. Not only was he a great realtor but he also recommended an amazing inspector and lawyer to use! 

Chuck always made us feel confident through all the ups and downs of first time home buying and we are so glad that we found him! 

If you are searching for a realtor you need not look any further,  Chuck is awesome!

John – Edgewater Condo Buyer

Doug Stachowiak – a great Realtor and a trusted advisor in my search for a new home in Chicago. I can’t recommend him enough — and the whole team at Best Chicago Properties — for helping me in my transition from Cleveland to Chicago. Doug is a knowledgeable real estate expert and patient by nature! We looked at a countless number of properties over many, many months and Doug was unwavering in his support and relentless in the search for the perfect home for me. I ended up buying a condo in a building that met (and exceeded) all  of my criteria. As a former Realtor myself, I know what it takes to be a good one — and Doug checks all the traits necessary. What more can I say?

Ebbin – West Loop Condo Buyer

Chuck is a good guy and will not steer you wrong. Me and my wife have been through it all with agents and companies. It was getting pretty tough to stay where we were, but we were not sure where we wanted to move. We had almost given up our Chicago home search, and decided to call up our apt agent (insert Chuck). Poor guy, he soon learned that he had to turn talk show host to get us to agree on a property. He demystified everything.

We saw over 50 properties in a matter of 6 months. Each time, he let each of us know the salient pros/cons of the property. Chuck even set up showings at a few amazingly unique locations (read…I probably should have known better…memories not forgotten). In the end, we found a great compromise. The unit is not exactly where I wanted, not exactly what my wife wanted, but is exactly what we both needed.

If you want a real estate agent that will help you check off all of the right realistic boxes, Best Chicago Properties is the right place to start. They will stay with you until the end, and help you with all of the ins/outs once you find the right property. We had such a good time learning (stamina and patience) how to buy a home in Chicago, we had to tell the rest of the world. We just might get to tell our story on an HGTV episode near you!

Dean – Chicago Condo Buyer & Seller

Chuck sold me a condo and found me a tenant to rent the condo in 2 weeks at the rent that we agreed to. 2 years later, Chuck sold my condo within 2 weeks at the price we agreed to prior to listing the unit. Chuck Exceeded expectations in every category. Chuck rates a 5 in my book. Chuck Gullett would be the ONLY agent I would work with in Chicago.

Betsy & Will – First-time Home Buyers in Lincoln Park

Dear Chuck, We wanted to sent you a sincere, though over due, thank you for all of your dedication, passion, professionalism and guidance in the process of buying our first home. We absolutely love our home and could not have gotten here without you! Thank you, too, for the special closing gift card – it will be put to great use with some of the house projects we have planned! It was truly a pleasure working with you and getting to know you – we hope to have you over to see our finished projects one day soon! Thank you so much!

Timothy – West Loop Condo Seller

As someone who lives in Chicago but travels for work each week, I wanted to find someone who could help me sell my first condo in Chicago. Thank you to Chuck Gullett for helping me do that and getting my condo on television’s “House Hunters.” He helped me close out a chapter of my life so I can get on to the next!
