  • Matt listed and sold my home

      My husband and I have used Mark Allen Realty for three transactions now (first condo purchase, condo sale and home purchase) and we would never think of using anyone else. Matt Liss is super responsive, patient, has a hands on approach, and makes himself available any time you need him. He helped us find the perfect home (twice!) and each time we feel like we got a great deal. His pricing for sales is spot on...our condo sold in 1 day. The others we worked with at Mark Allen were always lovely, professional and fun too. We highly recommend Mark Allen Realty!

    • Matt helped me buy a home

        I worked with Matt Liss after having a less-than-perfect experience with another realtor. My previous realtor was not meeting my expectations as I am a first-time home buyer and needed more guidance on the neighborhood and type of property that fits my needs. The other guy seemed to be more of a glorified scheduler... actually I would have probably done a better job scheduling the showings myself. Anyways, Matt had been amazing! I am quite a stickler on punctuality, and Matt was always on time - whether it is showing the properties, scheduling them within 1-2 days notice, or replying to my emails (within minutes!). He really knows his way around the city. He was able to give me solid advice on which parts of a specific neighborhood would fit my lifestyle, and more importantly, which parts I should stay away from. It wasn't about the commission, as he would steer me away from more expensive properties that may not fit my needs (despite the cosmetic exterior). It took us a while to find the perfect place, but he was always patient and encouraging that we will eventually find "the one". And of course, we did. I am definitely recommending Matt to all my family and friends who are looking to buy in the Chicago land area. He was wonderful to work with. I was almost sorry to see that our showing "dates" had to be over! Thanks again for everything, Matt!

      • Matt listed and sold my home

          This is long overdue! My husband and I investigated several realtors before deciding Matt Liss was our guy. I've already referred him several times to friends, but Yelp makes it official :) Here is why we ultimately ran with him: 1. Knows his sh** 2. No bs approach 3. Super responsive 4. Staging consultation included - this was unbelievably helpful! 5. Only realtor who found us $$ - Matt told us we should have applied for our Cook County property tax homeowners exemption. Oops! It was super easy and we got a few thousand bucks back. 6. Practical recommendations taking our situation into consideration and really weighing the investment vs. payoff. Most of the other folks we spoke to offered a ton of "to dos" for us that would have cost a lot of money (e.g. all new cabinets!). Matt kept it simple and focused on what needed to be done. The painter he referred us to was the best! 7. Went above and beyond when it came to us closing on our current home. Outcome: Sold our condo for almost full ask in one week. Matt is also a funny dude which made the whole experience much more enjoyable. Plus, he sent us an incredible holiday gift basket even after he told us he wasn't the gifting type. Thanks again Matt!

        • Matt helped me buy a home

            I would never work with another realtor again if I can help it. Matt is the total package. Knows the market, knows what will need work in a house and a contact list that will help you no matter what you have to get done (loan, inspector, etc). He helped us find an investment property and was very patient and informative the whole process. He's very quick to respond and works his butt off. He has a ton of construction experience and is also an investor so he can quickly identify potential issues. He's also a strong negotiator, who doesn't pressure you at all but also cuts through the BS when you need a second opinion. I'm thrilled with the place we landed and feel like I know more now than when i started working with Matt. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for a place from first time buyer to experienced investor. Thanks Matt!

          • Matt listed and sold my home

              Matt Liss is a great realtor and an all around good guy. We met with a couple of realtors who gave us shady contracts and ignored email and calls until I found Matt. He's responsive and to the point and helped us navigate a cash deal, which we'd never done before. Our house sold in 5 DAYS and we closed in 24!! His business practices are transparent and ethical and he's great to work with. On a side note, in the rush to pack and move out of state I missed a drawer which contained a family heirloom... a GIANT silver punch bowl and 10 cups which belonged to my grandmother. I was hysterical when I called Matt. "No problem!! I'll pack up this behemoth and send it to you." Srsly. That happened.

                Matt Liss is an extraordinary broker who is several steps beyond anyone out there. He knows the business and the local area inside out but beyond that, he possesses a contracting background—a value-added extra that meant he could bring insights and ideas into critical home buying and selling decisions. His negotiating skills were top-rate; he saved us $50K on the buying end and negotiated a 90-day window (our buyers wanted 30 days) on the selling end. He has a comprehensive network of attorneys, inspectors, mortgage lenders and more to make the whole process seamless. And he's downright fun, taking the stress out of buying. I would recommend Matt without any hesitancy -- he's simply the best.
