I honestly can’t say enough great things about Mark Lale. He found my perfect home, and also found my mother her perfect home. Mark is diligent, to be certain. I think he must check new listings in the middle of the night. If a new property is listed, Mark knows about it and passes the information along — with lightning speed. He is always accessible, promptly returns calls and correspondence, and is incredibly reliable. Beyond these qualities, which I’d think would be essential to a successful career in real estate, he has a few others which make him a standout. Mark has an incredible aesthetic. He has an eye for great property, and that eye combined with his unparalleled knowledge of Chicago property gives him a great sense of what is available, and what properties are truly special or unique. He is also a lot of fun, and going around looking at property with Mark is a fun way to spend time. And he won’t waste time, but he is willing to spend time and surpass expectations.
