"From the moment we met John we were impressed with his honesty, friendliness, and eagerness to help. He worked closely with us from start to finish. When we found the perfect condo, he negotiated a deal for us on a late Saturday night. By early Sunday morning we had a signed contract! Since we were moving from out of state, John was there for the appraisal, the inspection, and meetings with tradespeople. John's network of associates provided us with the perfect mortgage broker, insurance agent, attorney, electrician, plumber and appraiser. Having such a knowledgeable agent was invaluable and made the entire process much, much easier."

"This is the best agent we have ever dealt with in real estate! I’m from Florida and was helping my son find his first condo near DePaul University where he attends graduate school. One quick google search and we found John Lyons. From the very beginning, we felt comfortable with our agent of choice. During the entire search, John was attentive to our exact criteria, answered every call/text/e-mail promptly and gave us unbiased information on each property we were interested in. After searching online for 3 months and 1 day of showings in person, we finally found the perfect condo. The closing transaction went off without a hitch because of John’s professionalism and choice of associates (especially the buyer attorney, Ernie Rose). My husband was not with us during the day of closing and John overheard me talking about needing the locks changed. Being the professional and personal agent he is, John took it upon himself to take care of the locksmith and changing the locks/keys without even asking! This was not a million dollar sale, but he always gave us five-star treatment. If you are lucky enough to be a client of his, not only will you find your perfect home but also you will feel like you have just done business with a trusted old friend. We will always use John in the future and highly recommend him!"

"John was an absolutely amazing agent. He was extremely patient with us as first-time home buyers and answered our many, many questions :) John was extremely flexible and easily adjusted our search as we changed our mind multiple times regarding type of home and areas we were looking in. John is a great communicator and kept in touch via text and email and always kept us up to date with everything that was going on. I would highly recommend John!"

"John helped my wife and me through the difficult and emotionally draining process of selling our home while we prepared to retire from our jobs and move out of state to start entirely new lives. You take your sellers as they come, and John got a handful when he got us. John's pragmatism and transparency about the process; his great knowledge of markets and professional acumen; and his effusive and optimistic personal touch and his undying sense of humor kept these nervous sellers reassured and on course throughout. Every piece of advice John gave us was on point and productive. He is someone you will want to listen to and trust, and you will be happy you did."
