DON'T MISS A NEW LISTING AGAIN!

Being a young couple and looking for our first home, my fiancé (soon to be wife, October this year!) and I had several questions. Prior to selecting JP and Sarah as our team to find our dream house, we searched endlessly trying to find approachable houses on the crazy market. A close friend of ours recommended JP and Sarah to us based on her experiences and this was the best decision we could have made.
We started back in November of 2016 with a kick-off meeting that was everything any new house hunter could ask for. JP and Sarah both answered all our questions with the comfort that their experiences will guide us to what we are looking for. After the initial face-to-face, which left us excited and pumped to get searching, we waited until February to begin our search. As soon as the green light was given, JP and Sarah were on the run! We’d receive multiple emails a day with several houses to review that met the major criteria we spoke to them about in November. When it came time to schedule a walkthrough, JP and Sarah were very flexible and able to work with us around our crazy work schedules and wedding planning.
We fell in love countless times with several houses, and in the difficult times when our pursuit was outmatched or unable to be met, JP and Sarah were there with great support and never faltering confidence that the right house was out there. After 6 bids, 2 contracts and many walkthroughs later, we had found the perfect house that met everything we asked for! Words could not describe how appreciative my fiancé and I are for JP and Sarah’s dedication to get us home, their years of experience and knowledge along with phenomenal personalities. I have told our story to all of our family and friends about the persistent couple that helped us find our dream home, and recommend JP and Sarah to anyone interested in looking for their first home or third home, young and old couples alike.
Thank you JP and Sarah from the bottom of our hearts and we look forward to seeing you at the wedding!

We cannot begin to thank Sarah and JP enough for helping us find our dream home! Being first time home buyers, we were really uncertain as to the home-buying process. We had an idea as to what we were looking for and the area, but really we did not know much past that. Immediately upon meeting Sarah and JP, we knew we were in good hands! During our first meeting, we spent well over an hour just getting to know each other. And as they began to ask us questions, to get a better understanding of what we were looking for, we could tell they were really listening to us. From the beginning, Sarah and JP only brought us homes that were truly options that might work for us. They never wasted our time - and with both of us in careers that take up a lot of our time, we really appreciated that!
From our first meeting, Sarah and JP also learned that we did not have a mortgage broker, home inspector or home attorney - and immediately we were given incredible referrals! Each person we worked with, referred by Sarah and JP, were professional, understanding, patient with us being first time home buyers, attentive and quick to respond! Having that guidance was invaluable to us! As we began to visit homes we were interested in, it was incredible to see how knowledgeable they both were when it came to the home buying market. They were quick to discuss the pros (and sometimes cons) of each home and they never said what we wanted to hear - they said that we needed to hear. They were understanding of all our questions - and they never made us feel like any of our questions were dumb. When the perfect home for us was listed on the market Sarah and JP got us in for a showing the very next day. By that evening we had an offer submitted and negotiations started.
They were partners with us through the entire negotiation process and always had our best interests in mind. Because of their hard work and follow through we are able to write this referral from our brand new home and couldn't be happier! Thank you Sarah and JP!"

Derrick and I could not be happier with our experience with the Anderson Group, more specifically, JP and Sarah. Being a first-time home buyer, we initially found the process daunting and overwhelming. Not knowing where to begin, Derrick received JP and Sarah’s information from colleagues who also purchased homes with their help.
From our first meeting, we were immediately put at-ease. JP and Sarah walked us through the process, let us know what to expect, referred us to excellent mortgage representatives, and re-assured us that our anxieties are not uncommon and they would be with us every step of the way. Searching for a house with first-time buyers, I’m sure is exhausting as we were really unsure of exactly what we wanted, but Sarah and JP’s patience paid off when they helped us find the perfect little starter home. The negation process was not easy and involved a lot of back-and-forth with the home’s sellers. Getting to the closing seemed impossible more than once. Regardless of the challenges and frustrations, JP and Sarah stuck by us every step of the way. Now, just a few weeks into home ownership, we are enjoying the renovation process and we cannot wait to truly enjoy our new home.
We cannot thank Sarah and JP enough for making this process seamless and incredibly enjoyable. We will not hesitate to reach out to Sarah and JP in the future and we will certainly be referring them to friends and family in the Chicago area!

As a first time buyer, I had my doubts. Sarah and JP answered every single question I had since day one. I had a very tight time line to find a house and close and sure enough they were up for the challenge. I'm very pleased I met Sarah and JP as they made the process of buying a house very smooth. Doesn't matter what day or time it was, they were always there. Sarah learnt exactly what I was looking for, and personally went through every listing. I could not be happier with the experience and my new home. Thank you Sarah and JP.
I don't often go out of my way to write reviews - but after working with JP, I don't think my words can do him justice. JP, is by far the best Realtor we have worked with. Glad we ran into him at one of his open houses. From the beginning, after meeting JP, we knew we wanted to work with him. Sure enough JP came through. Everything was punctual, professional and warm. We turned to JP for advice on all fronts and he delivered time and again. JP, wishing you and Sarah the best. You have us hooked and we won't hesitate to recommend you to all our friends!

JP was amazing! We are first time homeowners who had gone through two different real estate agents before meeting JP at an open house. First impressions, he seemed like a “go getter” with extensive knowledge of the market and houses in our targeted areas and after a few house tours he was our broker.
We set clear expectations on what we wanted and JP took the time combing through the MLS picking out each house that fit our needs instead of sending 100 listings that didn’t match our requirements. He even scheduled a tour sick as a dog just to show us a house we were really excited to see. After a few months of hunting we found the perfect home that matches all of our wants/ needs and couldn’t be happier with our experience. If you are looking for someone who is patient, has attention to detail and is a strong negotiator, you found him.

We weren't sure what to expect when contacting J.P. Anderson about being our broker to assist us in the purchase of our first home. We knew we had a lot of work ahead of us and had no idea where to really begin.
This all changed upon meeting with J.P. He was friendly and professional from our very first interaction, providing more than we had hoped for in terms of information, answers, and guidance on the entire process. We knew right away we wanted him on our side until the day we had the key to our new home in hand. He was diligent in finding for us newly available houses to visit and review as we learned more and more about what we wanted out of our new home. Here again, we had answers to all of our questions, and he was ever faithful in his charge to assist us, making sure we understood every step along the way.
From the beginning all the way to closing, and beyond, J.P. Anderson exceeded our expectations for the responsibilities and services of a broker, performing every task with integrity and patience. We would recommend him without hesitation to those we know, and, in fact, we already have.

We would highly recommend Marcie for any of your real estate needs. We recently purchased our first home and our experience was awesome. Marcie has all the best qualities you look for in a real estate agent. She is extremely organized and quick to respond.
Any questions we had were answered in a timely manner, if not right away. She is flexible and makes herself available to work with your schedule. Which was huge when trying to work around both of our hectic work schedules. Her knowledge of the area made it extremely easy to explain what we were looking for, where and why. Marcie took the time to really understand our wants and needs. We never felt pressured to look at homes that didn't meet our requirements. When walking into a house, she sat back and let us observe the property but at the same time gave her honest and thoughtful opinion when asked. In return, we felt like we could be one hundred percent honest with our thoughts and concerns. Marcie was there with us every step of the way. Literally until the keys were in hand.
Overall, our home buying experience was better than I could have ever imagined. I don't think that we would have had the same experience with anyone else.
