Bob Bakas's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with
Bob Bakas

    • We've worked with Bob and Mary in the past and knew going into the home search that contacting the Ben Kinney Team was our best bet. Bob was with us every step of the way to explain the process and answer any questions. We never felt out of the loop or lost, and being able to ask questions and learn about home buying along the way made the experience that much more enjoyable. We can't say enough about how amazing Bob and his team are! Thanks to all of their hard work, we were in our new home in just over a month - and our previous property was under contract within a week and a half! Reach out to the Ben Kinney Team, you absolutely won't regret it!

    • Bob Bakas was wonderful and very professional in helping us sell our home in Winfield. He knows the area well and has a great sense of what it takes for a home to show well. He helped us through the process of getting our home ready to sell, to making it look great, to finally selling it. He was in constant contact with us throughout the entire process. We appreciated his friendliness and helpfulness in getting our home ready to list . He was exceptional at keeping us informed throughout the entire process. We would like to thank him for selling our home in six days at a very good price. We would also like to thank the entire Ben Kinney Team/Keller Williams Premiere Properties for all of the communications and activity generated to helping with the sale of our home. They were all fantastic, very helpful, and friendly.

    • Working with Brad and the Ben Kinney Team is what finding a home should feel like. I hadn't purchased a home in over a decade and I was nervous buying anything as a new retiree. He was patient with me and listened to all my concerns and needs. Trust me, I had a lot! It was important to me to be near family and have everything I need. Boy did he deliver! He found me the perfect home with, not only my needs, but most of my wants as well. We had so much fun along the way and this process was so easy with him leading. Thanks to Brad and the whole Ben Kinney team. I will refer everyone I know to Brad and the Ben Kinney Team!

      - Marilyn D in Joliet
    • Bob and his team are wonderful to work with. PJ is great. He was always available to answer all of our questions. He was very knowledgable to provided honest and friendly service. We are first time home buyers and they walked us through the entire process of what was happening. We received excellent service from this outstanding team and would highly recommend Bob and his team for your realtor needs.

      - Jodi C in Elgin
    • I have had the greatest pleasure working with Brad Davis and the Ben Kinney Team in purchasing my first home. Being new to the homeowner experience he first walked me through the entire process of what will happen from start to finish. He was always working in my best interest and answering any and all questions I had. I appreciate his patience and his understanding of my needs. Brad is kind, hard working, professional, polished, extremely knowledgeable and you can tell he will fight for you. I was in a three way battle of sorts to purchase my home and Brad carefully weighed out options and used strategy to my advantage to close on the home! He will work tirelessly for you, get you all the information you need and be your best ally. He is truly customer centered and I can tell he loves what he does because he cares genuinely about the future of his clients.

      - Christine K in Chicago
    • I have been told a good realtor is similar in nature to a conductor of a symphony, coordinating the different players to make a successful transaction a reality. At different points in the process, the realtor is a salesperson, a buyers advocate, an analyst, a business manager, a consultant, a negotiator, and a marketer! Bob was all of the above to me and in my opinion he is the epitome of an master conductor and would not hesitate in recommending him and his team to anyone who is considering selling or buying a home.

      - Thearle L in West Chicago
    • They are a very professional team to work with. The best part is the take the time to make you feel comfortable and confident in the process of selling and buying a new home. Great group of professionals to work with and will definitely recommend them to friends and family.

      - Jake B. in Chicago
    • Great people who care about you. Communication is key with them. Work hard to sell your house andcarefully monitor all who enter.

      - Paul K in Franklin Park
    • Due to a job relocation we had to list our house very quickly and unexpectedly. Bobs team made the process very easy to manage remotely with all of their resources. They were always available to answer our questions and follow up with items we couldnt handle due to the distance. I would definitely recommend them to others looking to sell their house quickly, professionally, and efficiently.

      - Molly K in Mount Prospect
    • "As first time home buyers Brad ensured we were informed at every step. He listened to our wants and needs and always had an answer to every question we had. Brad was real with us the entire time always telling us straight exactly how things were and where we stood during the process. Brad was a cunning negotiator always considering every angle trying to get us the best deal and ensuring we always felt like we were winning. Brad was flexible willing to work around our schedule and acted quickly to schedule showings to ensure we saw every option available. 3 weeks into living in our new home my wife and I could not be happier and we owe it all to Brad!"

      - Tim K. Berwyn, IL
    • They have a deep understanding of the market and the neighborhood, a well-conceived game plan, access to individuals to implement the game plan, and clear, timely communication and accessibility; which lead to a very pleasant and positive selling experience. They were right on with everything they told us.

      - John and Joan N. Lombard, IL
    • We were so incredibly happy with the service they provided us. They worked very hard to get our property shown and ultimately sold so we felt that they were doing a great job. They went above and beyond in many instances in completing the sale since my husband and I had to move out of state. They provided high quality and professional service and we really appreciated it.

      - Stephen and Beth E. Glen Ellyn, IL
    • It needs to be said that they are the most professional real estate team we have ever been associated with. Besides their professionalism, they are spot on when it comes to understanding the market and assisting in preparing your house for sale. Not only did they sell our house, they kept us in the loop through the entire process. You would be hard pressed to find a more dedicated team that is more concerned about their clients well being than their commissions. We will recommend them to our family and friends. Thanks again for making the process of selling a house so easy.

      - Stan and Diane U. Downers Grove, IL
    • We believe this team sets the standard. Again and again through our dealings they went above and beyond what their job was. We relied on them to sell our house and they did it in less than 30 days. So many issues came up after the initial contract and they handled each and every one. In this day and age it is hard to find customer service like this.

      - Bryant and Francine C. Westchester, IL
    • They totally exceeded expectations. They have set a gold standard for competent service, attention to detail, intelligence, and good nature. Every facet of the process went more smoothly than expected, and I never thought I would sell the house so quickly.

      - Margaret A. Wheaton, IL
    • Great experience with this team. Sold a house that I had been renting to a tenant so we had some clean up and updating to go before putting on the market. This team helped with these projects as I had already relocated out of state. Priced fairly and closed in a reasonable amount of time. Communication was great during the process. Highly recommend.
