Very helpful! Attentive, good at explaining the legalese aspects in an easy to understand way! Not only helped me find and secure the place I wanted day of viewing, but also found me the right guys to fix it up prior to move in! I'd give 10 out of 5 stars if I could

I was a first time home buyer and I don't know how I would have done it without Michael and his team! Michael walked me through every aspect of the process, and answered all of my questions with patience and understanding. I kept waiting for things to get stressful or complicated, and they simply never did! And that was with buying a condo in Chicago from across the country. I would absolutely work with Michael and his team at Dreamtown again - I can't imagine working with anyone else.

We are the first time home buyers, and Michael Peterson was our agent. Being a first time home buyer, we never felt uncomfortable at any time during the home buying process, starting from finding a house, until we got the keys and moved in, as Michael Peterson was very much supportive and helpful throughout the process. HMichael Peterson explained to us in detail about the various clauses in submitting an offer, which helped us a lot to make wise decisions while submitting offers and to compete with multiple bids. Michael Peterson was easy to reach and answer any of our questions at all times. we are glad that we had Michael Peterson as our agent.

Michael was so helpful throughout the process to find me my dream home. He was so patient with all my inquiries and so helpful during every step of the process. I have already recommended him to all my friends to connect with him for their home hunt. Thank you so much Michael

Michael was so amazing to work with! It was my first time selling a home, and he was so patient with me, and guided me through the process extensively. He was 100% professional and quickly responded to my calls and kept me updated regularly with any new information. He was also very good at being patient with the condo board and management company in my building. He is very familiar with the Chicago market and had a lot of great ideas in what we needed to do (what was necessary or not so necessary) and did a fabulous job at staging to sell my place. Thanks to him, we found a buyer in just 2 weeks! He really went above and beyond what I expected from a realtor, and I can't imagine having gone through the process without him. Can't say enough good things about him and recommend him enough!

Michael Peterson is a professional agent, very knowledgeable and warm hearted person. Although me and my wife have been living in Houston, Texas, remote from where he has been living in Chicago, he helped us not only found our dream house for retirement in Chicago, but also helped us rend out the house since we could not move to Chicago immediately. Although we met Michael only couple of times in Chicago, most of our communications were through emailing, texting and phone calls, he made our deals so reasonable, so quick and so smooth... We were so lucky to have had Michael helping us and made our house purchasing and rental deal an unforgettable experience and a great joyful journey! Now, Michael is not only our trusted consultant but our lifetime friend! We love you, Michael!

Made buying a place very simple for a first time home buyer and provided me with many references to use during the buying process. Personable and knowledgeable. An overall fun process.

Michael sat down with me and walked me through the whole process and made sure I understood everything as we went. As a first time home buyer it was a great experience, and he guided me step by step from start to finish. Michael is friendly and knowledgable and I would recommend him to any of my friends.

Michael was great, very patient, and very knowledgeable. He helped us on every step of the way, from figuring out what we wanted to finding a lawyer. He was particularly good at helping us realize what we actually liked and needed before we even figured it out ourselves, a process that lead us to feeling confident enough to choose a fixer-upper, which fits our needs better then anything else on the market even if it will need a bit of TLC.

We found Michael by accident and it was mean to be. My wife and I felt immediate chemistry. He was different from many other realtors we had met before. He wasn't pushy or overly salesy. He just listened and began sharing properties for our review. After we viewed several over the course of a couple of weeks, we narrowed our criteria and Michael delivered. He was responsive, communicative and flat our brilliant when he found the PERFECT investment property for our needs. Michael turned what we expected to be a long-drawn our process into a three month dream-to-reality. Mr Dreamtown! Thanks Michael. Highly recommend.

Michael was wonderful to work with! The process of purchasing a home is intimidating and confusing-especially as a first time homebuyer. Michael was able to make complicated processes easy to understand, and was quick to respond to any and all questions.

Michael was the best agent I could have possibly imagined. He instantly impressed me after I met with a few other relators by providing me with a comprehensive folder outlining the entire process. As a first time buyer this was exactly what I needed to put my mind at ease. Michael was incredibly responsive (even while he was on vacation!) and got me in touch with an amazing attorney as well as a lender. I am truly thankful to have met Michael Peterson and he is now my realtor for life!

Michael was wonderful to work with from start to finish. He treated every step of the process with a personal touch, and I always felt like I was his top priority. Since I was a first-time buyer, he educated me on what to look for as I toured properties and helped me narrow things down to what was important to me. When I found my dream condo, he fought to get my offer accepted - late on a Saturday night! - and to get me a price below asking. From then until closing (and beyond) he checked in on me regularly and smoothed over all the little bumps in the road that arose. He worked well with my lawyer, the seller's agent, and my lender, often stepping in to take the stress off my shoulders. After closing, he reminded me that he's "my Realtor for life," and I believe it! He's resourceful, client-focused, and honest, and I'd recommend him to anyone buying or selling in Chicago.

Michael had to hand hold me a bit, in that this was my first home purchase. He was kind, helpful and arranged everything to make my purchase easier. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a to feel like they are working with a friend who happens to be an experienced realtor. He made the process as painless as possible!

Michael was truly an incredible realtor to work with - I could not have asked for anything more in a realtor and I cannot recommend him more highly. He consistently went above and beyond to help me find the home of my dreams. His commitment to me as a client was truly impressive, and he actively listened to what I wanted in a home in regards to budget, style, and location. I absolutely love the home that Michael found for me, and because of him I have a home that makes me happy every time I walk through the door. He is an amazing realtor and person.
