Cannot recommend Mario and MG group more highly. Home buying is incredibly stressful and his flexibility, professionalism, frank honestly and knowledge of the city and neighborhoods was second to none. He was in our corner at every turn and we trusted him – quite correctly as it turned out – implicitly.

Peter Xantheas is an exceptional real estate agent. He came highly recommended and we soon understood why. We trusted Peter explicitly to find two separate homes for our 20 something daughter and son in Chicago. We are from Iowa and had no idea how to go about choosing areas to look in. Peter was immediately there making recommendations and using his expansive knowledge of the real estate market to help them find their condos. He listens to what you want and doesn’t give up until he finds it for you. Our daughter had a vision and he found her the Art Deco condo in Hyde Park that was a diamond in the rough she could turn into her vision. When it was time to sell those condos and our children to move into houses we immediately called Peter Xantheas to sell the units! He was able to get our children very nice profits on their condos. Peter has always answered our emails within a few minutes. He never hesitates to call and talk to you about any concerns you may have. But the thing that makes Peter extra special is that he honestly cares about his clients. Whether buying or selling he always puts his client’s best interests first and foremost. We loved Peter so much we made him an honorary member of our family. He gets updates on special family news and of course photos of the progress on the condo renovations. We truly found a friend in Peter Xantheas!

Mario and his entire team were consummate professionals who acted as true partners in the process of selling my condo. He has a deep knowledge of the higher end modern condo market which enable us to nail the pricing, staging and positioning in a challenging market place. He is highly credible within the Chicago market which resulted in high quality traffic and feedback from prospective buyers/agents. He was spot on with his approach to the negotiation which resulted in an initial offer being raised above asking even when there weren’t multiple competing offers. Upon offer acceptance his team ran point on all of the follow up with the condo association, inspections, legal referral, etc… Would highly recommend Mario and his team!
