Riz was quite simply amazing--he totally transformed the experience of house-buying for us first-time buyers on a budget from something alien and frustrating, to something accessible, reassuring, and even fun! Riz goes the extra mile in every way possible. He not only advocated for us in a bidding war such that we won the bid, against all odds, and answered our hundreds of questions with patience and thoroughness, but guided us through the many issues that arose afterwards, from the closing to the inspection to finding reliable contractors after we moved in.
We trust Riz absolutely, and consider him a friend, something we never expected of a real estate agent. Riz is a wonderful agent and wonderful human being. You'll feel lucky you found him. .
I can't praise Riz enough. I had been dreading the whole process of selling my condo, especially since I spend most of my time in the house I bought in Michigan.
But as soon as I met Riz, I felt better because of his expertise, friendliness and patience. He arranged for the contractors I needed to prepare my place, communicated with me through texts, email and phone calls, and even had me e-sign the documents for the sale, so I didn't have to drive in from Michigan. I had expected it to take months to sell my place but after the first (only) open house I got multiple offers at full asking price. I can honestly say that the entire experience working with Riz was enjoyable. I highly recommend him. .
First, Riz is outstanding. A sincere and genuine person who takes time for all situations that arise with clients.
He is not only professional but he becomes your friend through the process. I have used his services to purchase my first home and my second home. I refer him to anyone looking to purchase and will never choose another realtor. Riz is a class act and a great realtor. .
Riz went way above and beyond. We were first time home buyers and hired him based on a recommendation.
We looked for several months and never lost his attention. He is very honest and let us know when a place was not worth putting an offer on and educated us about the process. He even attended a permit violation hearing, we knowingly inherited, to help us out. He is knowledgeable in many aspects including short sales and he has a guy for everything. We even used his recommended broker after comparing the offers. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone looking to buy in Chicago. He is honest, knowledgeable, and has a pleasant demeanor. .
From the very beginning, he was so engaged and motivated to help us sell our condo. His knowledge and experience are evident and he's very responsive and professional. Riz was so easy to work with and always had our best interest at heart. He got us the best price possible in this market (even more than we anticipated!) and he sold our place quickly. The marketing at Dream Town is so impressive and the photos of our place were amazing. DreamTown and Riz were so great, we would recommend Riz to anyone in need of a smart, motivated and experienced agent!!!.
Riz Gilani is very good at his job. I needed to find a home within a very short time frame.
He arranged showings according to my busy schedule, provided excellent advice and guidance and through it all was very pleasant to deal with. He even answered my calls and emails when he was on vacation. Riz knows the business of real estate and he knows Chicago. This made all the difference. Since my purchase I have recommended Riz to several friends. Overall, he made my buying experience easier and less stressful than it would otherwise have been. .
Working with Riz Gilani was absolutely a wonderful experience. We were making a major move with two small children within a short time-frame, and Riz not only acted proactively, professionally, and with our best interest, he did so with a pleasant, informed, and helpful manner that helped allay our worries.
I would most highly recommend Riz Gilani to anyone of my friends or family members. He is honest, clear, accessible, and will go the extra mile for his clients. We were extremely fortunate to have his support. .
Riz was simply a dream to work with. I'm not the most patient client but Riz took the time to explain everything in a clear and concise fashion.
He was easy to get in contact with and would respond to my inquiries late into the evenings. We established a trustworthy relationship and he truly has your best interest in mind. I will highly recommend him to my friends when they begin the home buying process. .
To say that Riz went the extra mile to help sell our property is an understatement. We were out of town owners trying to sell a rental, in the middle of winter, with the added pressure of having already purchased our next home and a 2nd baby that just arrived.
Riz helped us take care of everything big and small that needed to get done to sell the place, even dealing with scheduling appointments and showings around our tenants' schedules. He is very knowledgeable about the market and despite an initial low offer, knew exactly what price we would be able to get for our unit and he was right! We couldn't be happier or more satisfied with our experience working with Riz. .
Riz Gilani helped me find my new home, and without bias I can say, he is the best out there. As a first-time home buyer, I was unsure of a lot of things - where to start, how to proceed, how to navigate, what are the logical steps from property viewing to closing to moving.
Riz helped me every step of the way. He was very friendly, cordial and respectful in all his transactions. I have heard horror stories about real estate agents, but Riz is one step up, he is always very respectful, flexible and on-time for the appointments. He also always gave his honest inputs. He did not force me into buying a place that would not suit my taste and requirements. And even when I was in a dilemma in some places, he would tell me the Pros and Cons and leave it to my decision. His inputs were valuable to make my decision. When we found a place that I liked, he would voluntarily help in all steps and never leave me (the buyer) alone even for one step. I can honestly say, Riz goes above and beyond in ensuring his customers are getting the best service and the best place. I had so many questions, many of those are not even related to the property, like the things that I should have known or things I should do on my own. I never hesitated to ask Riz and he would always give me the answer, or point me in the right direction. Knowing Riz and doing business transactions for a few months now, I can say - he does not look for short term gains. He values what he does and ensures that his customer gets the best place they can get. If you are a new buyer or trying to buy/sell a place, please ask for Riz Gilani - you will not be disappointed. .
