We had a great experience with Riz. Professional and intuitive with our needs and wants with a home. His knowledge and experience were huge pluses for us when looking. We will definitely recommend Riz to anyone in the future who is looking for a home in Chicagoland.

Working with Riz was a pleasure. Such a knowledge of the market and impeccable timing. We got the most out of both our sale and new purchase thanks to your expertise. Highly recommended!

To refer to Riz as my realtor is just not enough. Riz is an expert, a professional, and above all a trusted friend. In 2012, I moved to Chicago knowing nothing about the real estate market or even quite where I wanted to live. Nor did I know Riz, he contacted me after I submitted an inquiry through the Dreamtown website. Riz showed me many options in different neighborhoods. I knew from the very beginning that he would be a phenomenal realtor, when he went above and beyond the neighborhoods I suggested we look, and took me to see some properties in West Loop. At the time, that neighborhood wasn't even on my radar, but I quickly fell in love with a place there and he put together an offer! Day or night, somehow Riz was always available to answer my questions or patiently explain next steps in the process. Fast forward four years later, when I was ready to sell my condo and move to a larger space, Riz was ready at my first call. I needed to fix up some things in the condo I was selling, and working full time on weekdays I was dreading dealing with contractors, painters, and construction. Always rising to take care of his clients first, Riz literally handled the entire operation. He found contractors who he knew we could trust and had good relationships with, he arranged to meet them at the condo, be there to oversee major decisions, and even went to pick up the tile for the bathroom floor himself! This is why I said at the beginning: Riz is much, much more than a realtor, he is a partner in your home purchase or sale. Look no further, you will not find a more capable and devoted partner than Riz.

We were so lucky to have Riz as our realtor. He really makes a point to understand what your dream home is and then he helps you find it! Also, I felt totally educated throughout the whole process. Any question I had was answered. Riz went out of his way to find us a new place when the first condo we went under contract with had problems and we couldn't get financing. Riz is always available if you need him and his staff is all super helpful and friendly. I will HIGHLY recommend Riz to anyone I know that needs a realtor in the city.

- Katie Fabbro

Riz was the best! We were first time buyers without much of a clue, and he hand held us through every step. I felt that he always gave us a very honest opinion, and wasn't afraid to tell us the drawbacks of any home. His support gave us a lot of needed confidence in our purchase. In the end he found us a premarket opportunity - can't thank him enough!

- Joseph Kurleto

We had a very positive experience working with Riz when we sold our condo in 2007. In 2015, we decided to look for a new home and, remembering his attention to detail, responsiveness and knowledge, we turned to Riz to help us with our new home search and the sale of our existing home. Riz helped us find a wonderful new home and negotiate with the sellers. His advice was objective and useful. In addition, within a week of listing our then-current home we had an offer, and we closed a month later. Riz helps create a positive relationship between buyers and sellers that gets results but is collaborative, not confrontational. We are glad we decided to come back and work with him again.

- Doug Davis

Riz came highly recommended to us by a friend. We couldn't be more happy with his service and all his efforts. Riz truly loves his job and it shows. His communication is beyond reproach. I can't recall an email or phone call to him that went unanswered for more than 30 minutes, even very late in the evening. Riz's insight into the market and knowledge of what we needed to do to sell our condo fast were spot on. His attention to detail and diligence in his communications and follow-through are off the charts. He also provided a very cost-effective vendor to replace our carpet for showings and even helped us pick out a new couch that helped the condo show even better. When we received an offer and all the paperwork involved, Riz was very patient and took the time to explain everything, help us understand the process and the buyers and negotiated very effectively on our behalf. We are beyond words to describe how extremely happy we are with Riz and I'm certain you will be to! Stop wasting your time looking for the best Realtor to sell your property. You've found Riz!

- Chris Wojnar

Riz was so wonderful! Honestly, I would have never felt comfortable with buying my first place without Riz. He was extremely calm, extremely understanding and always reachable. He explained everything extensively and was so knowledgable. He kept calm, even through all of the problems we had with the seller and was always even tempered. (Even when I wanted to scream.). I cannot say enough good things about him!

- Briana Jacobs

Riz was exceptional. We were first time home buyers and he walked us through the process, step-by-step. He always encouraged us to ask questions and pointed things out we may not have been aware of ourselves. He went above and beyond the call of duty, especially during and after we bought our house. If we ever sell, we'll definitely be working with Riz again, and we highly recommend him!

- Megan Pagels

Riz was an outstanding agent. He was extremely insightful and provided solid advice. I constantly reached out to him via email with questions, concerns and feedback throughout the process of buying my home. His quick responses were very much appreciated, and greatly reduced my stress. I would recommend him to a friend or co-worker in a heart beat.
