Nancy B – River North Condo Buyer

Buying a new home is never easy, especially when one is buying from out of state and have many requirements. But, Doug Stachowiak helped me to find my beautiful home in River North. Flying in from NYC for 8 hours for the specific purpose of finding a home, Doug was extremely patient and showed me 18 condos that met my needs and budget. I bought my place the following day. But more, because I am from out of state and still had to close on my NYC/Brooklyn House, he was in contact with the sellers to assure them that by the contract date, I would be able to close; he found me a fantastic lawyer who can do the closing in my absence; advised me on which neighborhood is best suited for me (I don’t know Chicago at all); and arranged to meet me on Father’s Day to give me my keys when I arrived! Of course, he didn’t stop there: he also showed me the local supermarkets. I trust Best Chicago Properties and I would recommend Doug to be your broker.

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 marketing 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.

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.

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?

Lavi – Chicago Condo Rental

Best Chicago Properties is the answer to your real estate needs!  I was looking for a professional, honest, thorough and friendly broker to find tenants for my condo, and I found him in Doug Stachowiak.  

He provided me with a list of his services including analyzing comparable rentals to correctly price my condo for the market, marketing the property in the MLS and other top rental websites, professional photography, running credit checks on prospective tenants, handling all leasing paperwork, and completing a property condition report prior to move-in.  

He also had great communications with my current tenants to schedule showings.  I was worried about finding tenants in the winter months, but, by working with Doug, I found great tenants within a couple of weeks!  I can’t thank him enough for making this process so easy for everyone involved!  I highly recommend Doug and Best Chicago Properties!

Doug from Best Chicago Properties found someone with great credit at the price range I was hoping for within two weeks time. He was professional, gave me a lot of good pointers as this is my first time being a landlord, and worked in my best interests.
