“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.” More reviews of Doug.

About Doug

In my many years of corporate real estate experience, I have always worked for boutique consulting practices with some of the most talented professionals in the industry. Best Chicago Properties is no different – skilled, proficient and experienced.

Leasing, purchasing, or selling is an emotional decision, and one best made when the client is confident all opportunities have been exhausted or priced to sell based on the most recent available market data.

The real estate decision is a process – how do I get from many, to the few, to the one. Most of the work is done up front by clearly understanding the client’s needs. I have successfully lead clients through this process multiple times with high regard for a positive client experience.

Please contact me today and let me assist you with your real estate needs. I look forward to working with you!

“Doug proved to be an invaluable adviser and a very patient/understanding advocate for me in my search.”

“I worked with Doug Stachowiak for over six months in the search for a new home in Chicago. Doug proved to be an invaluable adviser and a very patient/understanding advocate for me in my search. He was always on the lookout for new listings that would meet my criteria and assisted me in refining my own list of needs and wants to the point that we finally identified the perfect home for me. His negotiation skills were excellent as well, and I was able to buy my new home at a great price. I couldn’t have been happier with the experience of working with a realtor of Doug’s caliber.”

“We would highly recommend Doug to our friends and family because he is knowledgeable, patient, gets things done and is there to cheer you on through the journey.”

“Buying a home is never an easy process and is often stressful- especially in the city. My husband and I had the opportunity to work with Doug. Over time, Doug got to know us and knew what we wanted. He understood our needs and wants and always made sure the place was a good fit for us for the short term and the future. Doug educated us on the process and what to expect, which certainly put us as ease. From finding the right place to closing, Doug was there to help. He recommended people for each step of the process and they were all wonderful to work with. We closed on time and couldn’t be more happier.

“The process of buying a home, especially the first time, can be intimidating. Working with Doug Stachowiak made the process enjoyable and worry-free.”

“Doug really knows his stuff when it comes to real estate in Chicago and you really feel like he’s looking out for your best interests. Even during the busiest time of the year for real-estate, he was very responsive and dedicated to my home search (I think Doug might have more than 24 hours in a day or something…) Also, the other professionals you work with during the home buying process, Doug has great recommendations for. No pressure to use the folks he recommends, but I went with them and they were all awesome. I was feeling intimidated by the whole process at first, but Doug guided me through it patiently and helped me get an awesome condo.”

“Doug Stachowiak’s knowledge of the Chicago area, expertise in negotiating and deep understanding of the market is impressive.”

“My experience with the Best Chicago Properties was stellar in every aspect. Doug Stachowiak’s knowledge of the Chicago area, expertise in negotiating and deep understanding of the market is impressive. His advices were right on point and he responds to means of contact in a timely fashioned and professional manner. It was a pleasure working with Doug, he is an expert realtor and I am fortunate to have him on my team of professionals.”

“I trust Best Chicago Properties and I would recommend Doug to be your broker.”

“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.”

“I cannot say enough wonderful things about Doug at Best Chicago Properties.”

“My fiancé and I recently relocated from California to Chicago and Doug was there to help every step of the way. During our first conversation over the phone, Doug was able to get an idea of what neighborhood we would be the happiest in. From then on, he had emailed several listings a night of great places in the neighborhoods we discussed. I was on a time crunch and only in Chicago for ONE day to look at the places my fiancé and I had narrowed down. Doug kindly drove me around the city and we found a place that I really liked! Doug quickly worked with the listing broker and long story short, our application was accepted (with Doug’s awesome help). It’s now mid-May and we are happily living in Chicago! I HIGHLY recommend Doug and would work with him again in a heartbeat! I promise you won’t be disappointed! :)”

“I worked with Doug Stachowiak on two separate deals.”

“The first was our first condo purchase (with all the stress and education necessary for a first homebuyer) and then two years later when we sold that condo and purchased our current condo, both in the West Loop. Doug is calm, very knowledgeable, extremely patient and overall my husband and I knew Doug was sincerely looking out for our best interest. During our first home search, Doug must have taken us to 30 showings, at least. He was patient and helped us through the many processes (pre-approval, search, making an offer, negotiations, contract, inspections, loan approval, closing). He was flexible, diligent, and professional, along with genuinely personable. He is well connected, and helped us find the partners to get us through the process; he even gave us a handyman referral months (maybe years?) after we moved in. When it came time for us to move, we didn’t hesitate to call Doug to help us through the even more complicated process of both selling and buying at the same time. This time we were better educated and knew exactly what we were looking for. For this search, we saw significantly fewer properties, evidence that he was listening and only scheduling properties that would actually meet our criteria. For the sale of our condo, we chose to list at a low time (November), and Doug diligently held open houses nearly every weekend to drum up traffic. He is a trusted partner to my husband and I and we wouldn’t hesitate to refer our closest friends to him… and we will definitely use him for our next sale/purchase!”

“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?”

“I was looking for a professional, honest, thorough and friendly broker to find tenants for my condo, and I found him in Doug Stachowiak.”

“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!”

“He was professional, gave me a lot of good pointers…”

“I recently decided to move to New York for my job and needed to find someone to rent out my condo unit to as I do not want to sell it in this market. 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. If you want to be taken care of and not worry about finding a renter or buyer, let Best Chicago Properties do the work for you.”
