Edmond Dawid

Seller Rating:

Edmond Dawid has a very courteous personality. He is very knowledgeable. He always provided his feedback on certain things, but let us make the decision on what would be the best solution to the problem. His communication skill is outrageous. He called, texted and emailed me and advised me of any updates.

Even though I was represented by an attorney, after he found me the buyer, he was still in contact with me to make sure any communication between he and the attorney was relayed to me. I really appreciate all of his hard work and effort in trying to help me sell my property. - Nicole Ishay- Skokie Il May 2017

Kristen Kardas

Seller Rating:

From start to finish Century 21 (via Kristen Kardas) handled our business negotiations very professionally and competently. She and this realty come HIGHLY recommended!

Real estate transactions have become more complex than ever since the real estate crash several years back. To have someone like Kristen Kardas, who can cut through the myriad layers of stipulations and conditions and circumstances with clarity and efficiency, is a tremendous help and reassurance to inexperienced clients such as ourselves (who seldom relocate except once every 20 years or so).

Kristen Kardas is top-notch in her ability to navigate the complex waters of home sales and purchases. She makes the process user-friendly and customized to the buyer or seller needs. we know this because we worked with her in both connections with two different properties. She was always thorough, competent, and professional throughout all aspects of both transactions.

Since Kristen Kardas is herself a broker and office manager, we really did not have any direct dealings with other office staff or personnel. Somehow Kristen managed to work us in around her already very busy schedule, and we never felt like she was inaccessible. - Bill & Cristie, Evanston March 2015

Edward Wardanian

Seller Rating:

Very polite, sociable and trustworthy. - Badree Davaryar January 2015

He made it a pleasant, smooth and stress-free process. He never made us feel pressured! He is always quick to respond and fast to schedule home viewings! He is always on time too and always fulfilled all his duties and was committed to doing the best at his job. - Charlene Balmelli, Glenv October 2016

Edmond Dawid

Seller Rating:

Edmond Dawid was recommended by someone at the properties management office. Mr Dawid responded immediately to my phone call and took care of paperwork quickly. Within a few days he had multiple offers for the property. The closing on the property was quick.

Throughout this whole experience Mr Dawid was extremely professional along with making my family feel that he was a long time friend. It was an honor to meet and work with him.

Absolutely the best. - Phyllis Wendt Florida January 2017

Genie Birch

Buyer Rating:

Genie worked with me for a YEAR AND A HALF and she knew I was looking for a 75-100k place. At that price I lost a half dozen places to cash buys and higher bids. And each time she was right there with what's next. She is a dedicated and devoted trooper! One place I caught wind of late on a Friday afternoon and she had a contract ready to go within a half hour. Signed it and she sent it off. She is great! - Dweiner, Rogers Park, Ch September 2015
