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.
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!
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?
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!
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!
Chuck Gullett is fantastic! He helped my cousins sell their loft and he came highly recommended. He did not disappoint. He helped me find a rental condo when I relocated to Chicago. He’s knowledgeable, responsive and a great resource for properties in Chicago and the various neighborhoods. I plan to call him again when it’s time to move to another rental or purchase my next home. I can’t recommend him enough. In fact, I’ve already passed his contact info along to two of my friends.
I had an opportunity to work with Chuck Gullett of Best Chicago Properties. This past spring I was planning to relocate from New Orleans to Chicago. To be honest with you, I had no idea where to start and had never worked with a real estate broker before.
Chuck helped streamline the entire process so that we would accomplish my goal of finding a property in Chicago that met my criteria. While touring the properties Chuck would discuss everything he knew about the property, building, and neighborhood. If we had time in between visits he would point out some of the parks, restaurants, stores, etc that he had talked about during the tour. He was honest through the entire process, pointing out the good and bad of each property. He wanted to ensure that the property I found was the right one and that I would ultimately be happy with choice I made.
I would recommend Chuck Gullett to anyone looking for a real estate broker in the Chicago area. Chuck is knowledgeable, professional, and an overall great guy to work with and I could not be happier with my overall experience with working with Best Chicago Properties.
