Happy that the property was sold quickly and that my agent was so knowledgeable.

Ray was great....he understood our situation and worked for our best interest. I guess the best way to say it is he suggested what we should do and we did it the best we could. In return we told him what we needed and he did it as best he could. My wife and I believe we could not have found a better agent, We worked well together in our opinion.
I would and recommend Ray to anyone needing a great real estate agent - and have done so.
Ray has turned out to be a good friend.

I could not have asked for a better agent to assist me in selling my dad's house. Ray did an absolutely amazing job. His professionalism, responsiveness, market knowledge, negotiating skills, sense of humor, and most importantly his compassionate nature really impressed me. The circumstances under which I needed to sell my dad's house were less than ideal. My dad is in a nursing home, quite a bit of furniture and personal belongings were in the home, the home had not been well maintained (particularly the roof was in desperate need of repair and likely would not have fared well this Winter), property taxes were due so time was of the essence, and I live out of state. Ray reached out to his fellow brokers and found great recommendations for people who I could hire to clean out the house. He went above and beyond ordering additional photos to showcase my dad's home in the best light. I have no doubt that it was because of his extra effort that we were able to find the perfect buyer for my dad's house who offered us a clean contract at asking price with a quick closing. If anyone I know has a need for an agent in the Chicagoland area, I would not hesitate to recommend him. He is a top notch agent and he far exceeded my expectations. Please feel free to share this testimonial as appropriate because I definitely want prospective clients to know how happy I was to work with Ray Seffer and Baird & Warner.
