Client Reviews - Homes for Sale in Niles IL.
Here are just a few of the comments I've received from my clients...
As you are well aware, when our mother passed away in March, my sister and I inherited a four-plex apartment building in Skokie. My sister and I decided to sell the building but felt it would be a mammoth undertaking. So many hurdles to leap--find a REALTOR, determine the fair market price, find an attorney, make repairs to the building and oversee the closing. Of course this task would be further complicated by my sister living in California and me living in Florida and not having anyone in the Chicago area to rely upon.
What a wonderful surprise and relief when we found you! What can we say but thank you, thank you, thank you for making this a (reasonably) painless effort. After I contacted you and we spoke on the phone, you explained your many years of experience in real estate and especially in selling in the northern suburbs of Chicago. You quickly provided us a market survey, we discussed other properties for sale and decided on an asking price.
One week! You had offers for us in one week!
There's no question that if I lived in the area, I would recommend you to anyone in need of a REALTOR. Recommend you once, twice, thrice; recommend you at every opportunity!
Marc helped us buy our home and we loved working with him as he is extremely professional, knowledgeable and responsive to any form of communication. I also recommended him to my parents when they sold their house and they were very happy with his services as well as he made their process quick and effortless. He is the best REALTOR I've ever worked with and I highly recommend him to anyone.
I was previously a full-time Real Estate Broker in California for many years.
When the need for a competent REALTOR came up for my boyfriends deceased Mother's property, I was at a loss for who to go to. Personally, I have always felt fondly towards RE/MAX and that was where I decided to search. Ironically a brokers name popped up on my internet screen. Marc Perlove.
This was to be the luckiest thing that I have had happen to me in a business situation in forever. Not only was Marc a seasoned professional but he did business the way I did. Honestly, thoroughly, and always available for us, the clients. His work ethics are admirable. Plus he is never ever condescending or at all unkind, from our experience. He is very respectful of everyone he deals with. He can be tough and protective if needed. He was for us, at times.
I love Marc. My boyfriend loves Marc and since meeting him I have met several people in the community where I live, which is not even Glenview, that recommend Marc! I have to stop complimenting this man sometime. So, in closing. I say give Marc Perlove a shot. I think he deserves it.
Marc Perlove from Re/Max Villager represented my family in the sale of our 9 unit building in Skokie. He did an amazing job in the sale of our building, from showing numerous clients to our estate, all the way to after we closed on the sale with our buyers. Marc showed absolute professionalism and provided great help and support throughout the whole process. I believe he went beyond his obligations by helping our family with personal service, expertise, and experience. I would recommend any potential clients to Mr. Perlove, because he will take care of you and do everything in his power to satisfy your real estate needs.
My husband and I have worked with Marc as our REALTOR on two different occasions, and we have been extremely satisfied with the service he has provided us in selling two homes. Marc's experience and professionalism, as well as his dependability and even temperament have made our experience working with him very positive.
Marc brings a tremendous wealth of experience and knowledge to the home sales process. Our two homes could not have been more different- the first was a three-flat in a north side Chicago neighborhood that was sold "as is", and the second was a less than ten year old home in a suburban subdivision. In both cases he demonstrated a mastery of the local market, as he provided a thorough market analysis and was able to guide us in the pricing, preparation and marketing approaches appropriate for each different circumstance. Marc's experience was evident in the comprehensive and proactive way he approached the marketing of our homes. I remember that he said, "I won't wait for buyers to find your home, I will work to find the buyers". This he did - in both sales, we had offers that went to contract based on his networking!
Finally, our results speak for themselves - the home that went on the market in January went to contract in less than two weeks, and will sell for 97.5% of asking price. My husband and I feel that we would not have gotten this result had it not been for Marc's expertise. I recommend him enthusiastically!
Marc Perlove from ReMax exceeded our expectations on the sale of our Northshore home. He was very direct when discussing repairs, upgrades and staging. It was refreshing to hear someone tell us the truth, rather than pandering to get the listing. Quite frankly, without his advice and sales skills, our home would probably still be on the market. If you are ready to sell and want solid advice on how to get that done based on years of success, then Marc is the partner you want.

Living almost 200 miles away on an estate sale, means we needed a great real estate agent, and Marc's expertice, network, and communication made all the difference.
- Very competitive fee
- His contractor and attorney referrals worked perfectly and saved thousands
- Great communicator; phone, email, text, even e-document approval
- His attention to details of; fix-up, negotiations, tenant issues, buyer's agent, inspections, and appraisal all smoothed the process and added thousands to the bottom line
Without hesitation, we would recommend Marc Perlove for anyone seeking real estate services. His lengthy background and experience, along with his attention to detail, his network of professionals, and his responsible and courteous way of dealing with people and situations make him our first choice.
Our tenants may have said it best, after meeting Marc they stated "He will sell this building!" Our property was listed only a matter of days and the sale closed before the end of the month following the offer.
Mark is extraordinary individual who cares for his clients. He gives fair advices on the property, takes extra time to analyze the property value, look for comparable buildings or homes in the area and then gives a fair recommendation. He is always accessible to for showings.
The most important factor is that Mark does not look for his own benefit first, what he does look is client benefit first. I have been working with Mark in last 4 years and completed transactions where I am so happy. I highly recommend Mark to anyone.
I would definitely recommend Marc Perlove. He is knowledgeable, flexible, patient, and accommodating. Marc could find you a house, even in a difficult market. His years of experience are evident in the negotiations process.
Marc Perlove is an exceptional real estate agent, and I have seen him fight zealously for his clients to get the best possible outcome in transactions. I have also seen Marc go above and beyond to make sure his clients are well represented. An experienced agent, he is able to prepare for potential pitfalls in such a way that keeps the transaction moving along, while also keeping all the parties and representatives updated and in the loop. Put simply, he leaves no stone unturned, and I would recommend him to my clients.
Marc was a very helpful REALTOR. We needed to sell our house quickly, and he helped us get it ready for sale and, once it went on the market, it sold in one week at the asking price. We were very satisfied with his service and would recommend him to others.
I would highly recommend Marc Perlove. Marc was my REALTOR when I sold my 2 flat building in Skokie last year. I am a commercial real estate attorney, so I had very high expectations for whoever I worked with and Marc definitely met my expectations. He is professional and very experienced and that experience shows through in how he deals with his clients and prospective buyers. I think it is harder to sell a 2 flat than a traditional single family home because there are fewer interested buyers, but Marc brought so many prospective buyers through the building, it was just a matter of finding the right one. His positive attitude and persistence paid off because I got an offer that I was happy with. Once we had found a buyer, he stayed very involved in the transaction all the way to the closing date to make sure that the buyer timely obtained a loan and he also was very helpful with resolving inspection issues that arose.
