Success Stories

We worked with Kent at Lakefront Realty Group. Prompt replies to inquiries; always very responsive & on-the-ball! He was great to work with -- always responsive to our questions and able to provide us with prompt and accurate answers. His recommendations of a mortgage broker and real estate lawyer were also great. We were very happy with the service we received.

Kent was so fun to work with. He showed us places that were exactly what we were looking for. He was never pushy or arrogant. He made home buying fun and exciting for us. Our first home buying experience was a pleasure due to Kent. He taught us what we needed to know, and helped us along the journey.

    Beth & Paul W. - Chicago

We had worked with Kent on the purchase of our condo. Kent was a great Realtor®. He always got things done smoothly and kept us informed. Even in the bad market, Kent got our place sold. Kent did an awesome job! Made the home selling process simple. He is very helpful and well organized.

    Mike & Ewa G. - Lake Zurich

For a first time buyer, it was a very laid back experience at my own pace. I did not feel pressured and was well informed. Kent did a great job of helping a first-time buyer like me. He listened to my requests and took the time to show me, and help find properties in which I may be interested. A very nice experience.

    Austin K. - Chicago

When I started searching, I found Kent's website. I signed up for a couple different services to email me listings, but Kent was the only person to reach out to me personally. I liked the commitment to customer service. Kent was very good at working with me to determine what my top priorities were, and helping to filter the search down to what places I would be most interested in. I also appreciated his candor when he felt there were issues with a property I should be aware of.

Kent was an invaluable resource in finding my first home. He took the time to carefully explain to me the process at each step, and was very attuned to my search criteria, even helping me to narrow down what that criteria was. Thank you so much!

Lakefront Realty Group was wonderful in helping us find a home in Chicago. Kent worked tirelessly to find us a place that would accomodate my furniture, and my husband's desire to cook outside, as well as 100 other quirky requests that we had. I would recommend them to family and friends in a heartbeat.

Dealing with Kent is truly like having a friend in the business. I never had any doubt that Kent had my best interests at heart, and was doing all he could to get me the best deal on the best place. I really don’t know what you could do to make the experience better. Kent is a consummate professional and I intend to recommend him personally.
