  • Matt listed and sold my home

      Matt and his team have made the process of selling my home so easily and smoothly. When I planned to sell my home, I was doing extensive research to find the right professional with experience and resources who can help me sell my home as quickly as possible. His name came up. Matt showed up on time and walked me through the whole process, explaining step by step and no pressure. The next day he sent someone to the house to take photos. The house was listed immediately on the following day. I had him listed at the price that was fair enough to break even most of the costs and expense that I have put into renovating the house. The house was finally sold after a few months. I was glad I have hired him. Thank you, Matt and his team.

    • Matt listed and sold my home

        The team took care of all aspects of getting our home listed and sold. There was little we had to do, as the team went beyond what would normally be expected from realtor acting as a sellers agent.

      • Matt listed and sold my home

          Very! He sold our condo in three days!

        • Matt listed and sold my home

            Matt and his team recently helped my wife and I sell our condo in Chicago. He and his team were so great to work with! They are so knowledgeable and professional. They were always available to answer our questions and respond to our concerns. They worked behind the scenes to ensure that our sale went as smoothly as possible. We reached out to Matt based on reviews that we had read online and we are so glad that we did! We highly recommend Matt and the Matt Laricy Group!

          • "This was my second time working with The Matt Laricy Group. Matt and his team were professional, prompt and made selling my condo much less stressful than it could have been. Matt is extremely knowledgable of the Chicago market, and will work diligently to get you a fair price on your home, whether you're buying or selling. If I were not moving out of the Chicago area, I would continue to use The MLG!"

          • "This was our second time working with Matt and as expected, he and his team were a dream to work with. His knowledge of the market and ability to get things done is unparalleled. There's no question too big or small for him and his team and I'm convinced they don't sleep. I truly can't recommend him enough!"

            - Brian & Katie K
          • "Thank you Matt, Jamie, Lisa, Jena and the rest of his team who made the process a smooth and enjoyable one. Suits and looking sharp are a must, which also translate to an efficient and effective work attitude.We are actually referred by a friend. We enjoyed the honest and down to earth comments from Matt during showings. He keeps in touch yet never pushy. He and his team are responsive even at the wee hours. We appreciate he keeps his communications succinct and to the point. He and his team are particularly phenomenal during the anxiety prone closing process for a first time home buyer. They keep a clear to do list, follows up and stay on top of things to close on time. Highly recommend and look forward to work with Matt in the future."

            - Alex W.
          • "The Matt Laricy Group is outstanding! From the moment of contact, Matt gave 100%. His presentation was very detailed and informative, giving me a strong feeling that this sale was not going to take long. His contacts and knowledge of the Chicagoland area are beyond impressive. He has a very aggressive advertising program that produces results. Matt and his group worked continuously to sell my condo in record speed. It was put on the market the first week of January, sold and has already closed (Feb 9th). One of the many impressive aspects of Matts group were their continual updates. I was notified every time there was a showing (there were numerous) and received feedback quickly. Matt and Jamie were always available to answer questions either by phone, email or text and I might add, VERY quickly. Once there was a contract, Jamie kept the ball rolling making sure every detail was handled with the condo association and attorneys. I would highly recommend The Matt Laricy group, without a doubt, they produce results!"

          • "If you want to sell your place, you should look no further than Matt Laricy Group. They are knowledgable and use multiple methods to market the listing."

            - Niekoo A.
          • "Matt Laricy knows his stuff! He has a fantastic team working with him, and they made every step of the home buying process a breeze. Everyone on Matt's team is excellent at communication, especially his wonderful assistant Jamie, and they utilize technology tools to be as efficient as possible. As a first time home buyer, I appreciated Matt's patience, responsiveness, and honest opinions. To top it off, he knows good people who can help with every other piece of the puzzle (ie mortgage lenders, inspectors, lawyers, movers, etc). He was truly committed to helping us find our perfect home, and I felt like he had my back from start to finish. I recommend the Matt Laricy Group to potential home buyers, without hesitation!"

            - Laura G.
          • "Matt and team are amazing. Their utilization of technology, tireless work ethic and understanding of the market make them a pleasure to work with. I would highly recomend them without reservations to anyone selling in the city."

            - Mike F.
          • "Matt was the second of 3 realtors that we were going to interview. While talking to him, we immediately decided that we wanted him to sell our home. We cancelled the 3rd interview. Matt was so involved and constantly contacting us. He kept close tabs on what was going on with our home. His assistant, Jamie was also very attentive to us thru texting. Matt coached us along the way - 7 months of having our house on the market. When we got the bid that we began to negotiate with, Matt was like a counselor helping us navigate those waters. Again as we had to wait on the buyers unusually long, Matt was there talking to us and keeping us totally updated on what was happening. We loved Matt and highly highly recomment him!!!!"

            - Cheryl & Paul N.
          • "Just finished purchasing my first home w/ the support of Matt and his team; I worked heavily w/ Matt, Mickey, and Jamie. He and his team work very hard and are very professional. He and everyone on his team was easily accessible and always quick & informative in regards to inquiries/ concerns I sent their way. This is particularly helpful when trying to find a home in a competitive market like Chicago. Matt certainly has a great deal of familiarity w/ the Chicago market and was always kind enough to share his insight to help me better use my time and effort. The closing process was very straight forward and was definitely aided by his team's organization. I am glad to have worked w/ him and feel I was able to get a great deal as well. Thanks again Matt Laricy Group."

          • "Matt Laricy and his team are the most professional and hardest working real estate group in Chicago! They sold our Lincoln Park condo in less than a week and made the process simple and seamless. Anytime I had a question for Matt I received a response back within 10 minutes which further confirms his dedication and desire to sell my property. I would highly recommend using his team for the buy or sell side of any real estate transaction."

            - Hannah H.
          • "Matt and his team are the best in Chicago. I just purchased my first condo and they made the entire process as easy and seamless as they possibly could. The entire team is so quick to respond and happy to help with any questions you may have. Matt in particular is SUPER knowledgable and amazing when it comes to negotiating. I got into a multiple bid situation and he offered the perfect advice to help me win out of seven offers on my condo. I will absolutely use Matt for any of my future real estate needs and I cannot recommend him and his team enough."

            - Lauren S.
          • "After reading several positive reviews online we engaged Matt to help us with the offer and negotiation process for a property that we identified and ultimately purchased in Lincoln Park. Coming from Miami, FL we found Matt's responsiveness, professionalism and expertise to be extremely helpful as we educated ourselves on a new city and real estate market. Matt helped us to acquire the property in a short time frame and significantly under the asking price, in spite of only being on market for 11 days. We would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Chicago area."

            - Walker R.
          • "I actually found Matt on Yelp. We interviewed him along with a couple other realtors, and it was obvious that Matt had a superior knowledge and understanding of the market in the area. Matt, Jamie and his entire staff helped us sell our condo quickly, from setting the price to staging to showing, to negotiating the price we wanted and finalizing the sale, and a smooth closing. I highly recommend Matt and his team. Thanks!"

            - Mike H.
          • "We're first time buyers and had a great experience with Matt. He laid out the the whole process for us and he and his admin team were always very responsive to any of our questions. With his help and knowledge we quickly chose a place that we're very happy with. We'd heard some horror stories from friends, but for us the whole process was painless!"

            - James M.
          • "As a first time home buyer Matt was wonderful to work with. From the first meeting I appreciated how he walked through the entire process and made sure I fully understood what to expect. He is extremely knowledgeable. I trusted and valued his opinions while looking at properties, discussing offer options and follow ups once the inspection was completed. Matt is responsive, along with everyone else on his team. I can't imagine going through the process with anyone else and would highly recommend."

            - Christina K.
          • "Matt and his team were great to work with. Matt is a straight shooter, which was very refreshing during the negotiation process. Condo sold in record time and a lot of that was due to the promotion effort they do behind the scenes. I would highly recommend Matt and his team. Level of service provided was very high as I just had to hand over the keys and they took care of the rest."

            - Ajay P.
          • "We loved working with Matt when we bought our place back in 2016, so it was an easy choice to use him when we sold it! His team was great at putting together our listing including preparing high quality photo and video. Due to our own time constraints, we were hoping for a quick offer at a fair price, and they delivered. We accepted an excellent offer 5 days after listing. We can't recommend Matt enough!"

            - Brittany D.
          • "Being quite new to the Chicago Real Estate Market, we really didn't know where to begin. My brother introduced us to Matt (as he has recommended him and used him a few times to buy property before) After our initial introduction via email, Matt met with us and provided 45 minute overview on the market and everything to expect from offer to close. What I appreciated most was that Matt didn't pressure us at all to use him as an agent or to buy right away from our initial meeting. When we started the house search process, Matt and his team were very accommodating with our busy schedules. Jamie (Matt's assistant) was very proactive in send us itineraries to ensure we were on schedule and on time. Once we found the apartment we wanted, Matt negotiated very well on our behalf, from getting closing credits to adding in built in items into our new place. As soon as our offer was accepted, Matt's team created a checklist of items we need to complete to close on our property. To me, this was completely helpful and made our closing process very seamless and easy. Given that me and my wife have hectic schedule, knowing that we were checking items off our list brought us some piece of mind. Lastly, Matt is very responsive to all emails, he told us he gets back to every email within 4 hours, and he was true to his word. I would even say his responses were more timelier than that. I would definitely recommend Matt to anyone who is deciding to purchase a house in the near future!"

            - Vikas D.
          • "Matt Laricy helped us with a sale of a condo and a purchase of a house, both within a 2 month period of time. Specific to the sale of the condo, we first met with Matt on a Sunday evening. Placed our condo on the market a week later, and accepted an offer above list price 10 days after our initial strategy conversation. Concurrently, we put an offer on a new single family home. Matt helped us negotiate and got us an accepted offer within 24 hours. Matt's entire team, from Jamie Price (Executive Coordinator) to Lisa Saul (Attorney) to every other team member that supported us during the listing and sales process could not have created a smoother experience. Everyone was always extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and willing to give added effort to instill confidence in this entire process. This company and their attorney's attention to details and commitment to an exceptional client experience was so impressive. We look forward to working with Matt Laricy, Lisa Saul and the entire team again on our next real estate transaction."

            - Don L.
          • "My experience with Matt and his team was far beyond what I expected. Matt was recommended by a friend, who also sold his place with Matt. The process was better than I expected flawless communication, incredible marketing, and honesty through the entire process. Matt did not make me have fake expectations about selling time/price, and that convince me since day one to go with him and his team. I worked closely with Matt and Jamie and both were amazing at responding my texts, calls, and emails (usually within minutes). Their marketing is almost the best that Ive seen, with high quality pictures and videos that are shared in social media for people to see. I would recommend hiring this team of amazing professionals if you want to have an honest realtor that will help you sell your property at the best price when youre ready."

            - Jose D.
          • "I interviewed 4 other realtors before meeting Matt. In the first 5 minutes of meeting him, I knew right away he would be my realtor. His knowledge of the market and professionalism is top notch. The way he speaks and carries himself you can see why he is one of the Top Realtors in the City which says a lot!! He's also realistic when it comes to expectations. He said if it's priced right it will sell quickly, stuff that's not will sit. He's honest and fair and is a pleasure to work with. He was the only realtor that suggested to add more money to my parking spot compared to others. In the end, this gave me the wiggle room to still get the final number I wanted. I would use Matt and his team every-time if I could. Unfortunately for me they only work in the city and I'm moving to the suburbs. You will be blown away by his media presence, listing photos, and drone videos!! In any case, whether your buying/selling Matt is the realtor for you!!!"

            - Anthony D.
          • "Matt and his team were incredible throughout the process from listing to close. From the start, he helped us with identifying an appropriate listing price based on his experienced view of the market. We received far more showings than we expected early on, and his team was incredibly responsive in making sure they were available day and night to show our condo and provide timely feedback. We had a lot of showings and received an offer within 10 days, that we accepted. From offer to close, his team guided us every step of the way. My wife and I will certainly recommend Matt to anyone looking to sell their place."

            - Asim A.
          • "Matt was a great find! He is very knowledgeable about Chicago real estate, was always available when needed-in person or by email, and is very personable. He clearly understands the process and handled all aspects professionally. We were quite happy with his service, and the service from Jamie, his executive coordinator, who is extremely organized."

            - Judy S.
          • "Matt and his team are a pleasure to work with and made the entire process very easy. Matt is extremely experienced, well connected and informed but best of all he is extremely honest and blunt, which is refreshing when so many real estate agents always seem to be in sales mode (Matt will just straight up tell you if a unit is overpriced, or a building has a bad reputation, etc). He also has great recommendations for attorneys and lenders, introducing me to a better lender than the one I had chosen independently relatively late in my process who saved me a substantial amount of points for the same rate and closed in just over a week (and an attorney who was great from the beginning). I'd highly recommend Matt to anyone currently in the real estate market in any way (P.S. -- check out his podcast (The Matt Laricy Project) as well, it's very informative and interesting, especially for first-time buyers such as myself)."

            - Casey W.
          • "This is our second time working with Matt Laricy (first as a buyer, and now as a seller), and once again the experience has been top notch. Matt and his group are just an incredibly well-oiled machine, and the experience as a client couldn't be better. When we were buying our condo several years ago, we had to buy from out of town, within a very limited geographic area and budget, and close at a very specific time frame, and Matt made it all happen smoothly and with as little stress as possible. This time, we needed to sell our condo in a softening market while again closing within a very specific time frame, and Matt once again came through. His knowledge of the market is excellent - he can tell you more off the top of his head than many realtors can looking through their computers. He knows exactly what needs to be done to make a listing show well - and what can be skipped to save time and money. The pictures, video, and 3D tours were incredible and presented the best possible picture of our condo. When it came time to show the place, his team made the showings as unobtrusive as possible, and ultimately we found a buyer that worked perfectly with our tight closing window. The entire process ran as smooth as it possibly could, which is exactly what happened for us when buying a place with Matt 3 years earlier. We can't recommend him and his team highly enough."

            - Joe K.
          • "Matt and his entire team were amazing to work with! We used Matt to sell our condo as well as purchase a new one, and couldn't have been more satisfied. He was available around the clock and was in constant communication so there were never any surprises during either process. Additionally, his knowledge of the market was incredible, guiding us towards the right list price on the sell-side and helping us identify great places within our budget on the buy-side. Both transactions had some complexities but Matt helped us navigate those challenges and reach favorable outcomes. I'd recommend Matt to anyone who needs a realtor in Chicago and will certainly be using him when the time comes to move again."

          • "There aren't enough great things to say about Matt Laricy and the team. Matt, Jamie, Mickey and the whole team were fast, efficient, and very professional in selling my condo. Matt is a straight-shooter, you will receive valuable insight in selling your home, it's truly a partnership and he will sell your home at a price point that's fair and will move FAST! Unparalleled use of technology gives your place an edge above the competition. Jamie is the backbone of the whole operation and quarterbacks the entire process. She keeps you updated as steps get completed so you are never in the dark. With a reasonable commission, it's a no-brainer partnering with the Matt Laricy Group!"
