"John is really personable , always available for communication and knows his stuff! He takes the time to really figure out what a person wants and is patient with buyers. He also is extremely professional when dealing with mortgage brokers, lawyers, fellow relators. I would seriously recommend him to family members and friends!"

"John was truly helpful in assisting me and my wife as we looked for and bought a home in Chicago. From the outset we were impressed with his professionalism, willingness to provide complete counselling, ability to present data and explain its significance, and in general go the extra mile for his customers. John's responsiveness and flexibility to provide expert advice and answer questions when we needed this made our real estate purchase experience very smooth and pleasant. We highly recommend John to anyone looking for a home in the Chicago metro area. Thank you!"

"As a buyer, I highly recommend John Lyons as a real estate broker.
I had a very specific target area for my condo purchase, and John’s guidance was invaluable every step of the way. He clearly understood my needs and made sure that I ended up with a great unit, where I wanted to be. John provided a welcome, calming influence during negotiations. Without his outstanding expertise, I would have ended up with a lesser unit at my price point.
There is no substitute for his experience and friendly, professional demeanor. You need look no further for the real estate agent that you want on your side."

"This is long overdue I must say because John was nothing but responsive, accommodating, professional and knowledgeable. This was our first time buying a house and we nearly gave up due to a terrible experience prior to finding John. I’m glad we gave it another shot because once we founded John things seemed to fall into place. He spent extra time getting to know us and what our vision was. He was very honest and especially respectful of budget. He walked us through every step of the way and we always felt in the know about the entire process. Being first time buyers this was important for us. John was extremely patient and we never once felt pressured. Since John really listens to his clients what’s/needs the process is so much easier and more efficient. We ended up with a bigger place in a neighborhood we didn’t even imagine we would be in before and somehow came in under budget! He worked not only very hard, but very smart by networking and using all resources to find our place! His efforts really saved us time, money and headaches. We are so happy we found John. He was a true blessing to us and will be part of any future home buying and selling!"
