Robert Safranski helped us buy and sell our first home! He was endlessly considerate and completely thorough and knowledgeable in every aspect of our work together. Bob was always patient and listened to our needs so that we parted ways with a house that we could afford and a confidence that the process would be smooth without any unforeseen bumps in the road. When we finally sold the house many years later we returned to Bob because he made the buying process such a breeze and he was likewise a joy to work with on the sale. We couldn't be happier with him as our personal realtor. No one will give you more care and thoughtful consideration than Bob Safranski
This is the realtor you want. Bob has an extensive knowledgeable of the real estate industry. He understands thoroughly the process of buying, selling, and fixing up a single family or multi-unit home. He is a fantastic communicator; he will listen to what you want and then immediately notify you as homes that meet your criteria become available. He has an incredible attention to detail; if a home has a defect, Bob will spot it in the first walkthrough. Also, his contact list is phenomenal. Need a sewer pit drained? Bob has a guy. Can’t find a mortgage deal that you like? Bob has a contact! In every step of the home transaction process we felt like we had someone “in our corner” with Bob. We can’t recommend him highly enough and we look forward to working with him again.
Bob is one of the best agents I have worked with. His reasoned and thoughtful advice helps level the ups and downs of the purchasing and selling process. Together with his team, he makes the overall experience of buying and selling real estate a joy!
Bought and sold a home in 2017 in Bridgeport, Chicago, IL 60609.
This is my second experience working with Ron Knoll and Saffron. He helped me purchase my South Loop condo back in 2009 that we've lived in and loved for the past 8 years so when it came time to look to buy a larger place, I went back to him. We ended up utilizing him and Matt to both buy our new construction home in Bridgeport and sell the South Loop condo we had lived in for 8 years. Ron and Matt were extremely helpful throughout the process for both buying and selling. Since we were building, the buying process started way earlier and he helped us navigate what to expect and look for when building. We successfully negotiated the purchase and then he stayed close along the way as we had many back and forths with the builder. Him and Matt were with us all the way to close and even helped with issues arising post close. On the selling front, Ron and Matt took beautiful photos of our place and were very responsive in helping get the right buyer in and ensuring that we felt good about the process. When conditions changed slightly, Ron was able to work with @Properties to ensure that we could get a deal done the right way. Both Matt and Ron are extremely available and responsive to calls, texts, emails, etc. and that made me feel good throughout the process. In the end, we bought our new place and closed on our old place one week apart so it was timed as perfectly as could be. We're extremely happy with the work both of them did.
Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Logan Square, Chicago, IL.
Ron Knoll was absolutely amazing. As first-time home buyers, we interviewed numerous agents and decided to choose Ron. What a good decision. He was our advocate from day one. He tirelessly fielded all of our concerns and questions. He listened to us. He made himself available. We never felt pressured or forced to buy something that was not a good fit. When we did finally find that perfect place, Ron's industry expertise and experience was invaluable. Without him and his advice, we would not have gotten our home. I have recommended Ron to all of our friends and family and if we ever decide to move, Ron would be our first phone call. He is both an amazing agent and an amazing person, we couldn't have worked with a better person and I highly recommend him.
Bought and sold a Condo home in 2017 in North Center, Chicago, IL.
James and his team were absolutely amazing. Not only did they guide us through the purchase of our new home, they expertly managed the sale of our current home. We had three offers in less than a week! I highly recommend James and his team for your purchase, sale or, as we did, for both. We wouldn't have wanted to go through it with anyone else.
Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Portage Park, Chicago, IL.
As a first time home buyer, we felt truly lucky to have ran into James. He was able to talk us through the process, step by step, in a way that only first time home buyers would understand. He knew our fears before we did, he talked about our concerns and knew about potential problem areas in the home buying process. He was always available to answer a question and honest enough to say he didn't know the answer to something and get back to us in a timely fashion with correct information. He has a great team, that i highly recommend using, his attorney, his mortgage officer, all outstanding people that take the same care as he does with his clients. I would recommend him to anyone trying to buy a home any day of the week. Truly impressed with his service
