Al is the REAL deal! His ability to provide wise counsel, negotiate, and get things done is without equal. It's all the little things that he does to get a deal done that makes him rise above the competition. From providing accurate earnest money instructions, to signing the proper paperwork with the city-he just knows the ins and outs of this industry. As a first-time home buyer, he made the process so easy! What sets him apart is his wealth of experience in real estate, his unwavering commitment to honesty and his client's satisfaction. I would gladly recommend Al to all my friends and family, because Al knows how to respect and treat his clients and delivers every time (even on Sundays!). When we are ready to buy again, I know exactly who to call- AL CANAVERAL! Two thumbs WAY up! - Sam T, Berwyn October 2017
Jim is a true professional, he correctly valued and marketed by property. Jim is extremely approachable and will take the time needed to provide full, clear explanations of the current status of the process, and what's to come. Jim always provided quick responses. I am extremely happy with Jim's service, and highly recommend him! Thanks again, Jim! - Rob Tiberi, Chicago September 2017
Robert contacted me immediately when Cartus reached out to him regarding my relocation and sale of our condo. The other Broker we interviewed did not contact me for several days in which time Robert and I had already met. His professionalism and understanding of my needs made it an easy decision.
Robert was fantastic to work with and met all of our needs during the sale of our condo and our relocation. I would highly recommend, Robert. - Shane Pawlikowski; Chica September 2017
Margaret Allen went above and beyond to help us purchase our first house. Not Just any house, but a place to call home. Margaret makes you feel extremely comfortable and she gives you her honest opinions. She is always there to answer any questions at any time and day. I highly recommend her! Thank you Margaret for guiding us along the way! - Daisy, Waukegan September 2017
Met Donna in 2012, she was my real estate agent and became a great friend of mine as well after the purchase of my first home.
Donna did everything in her power to make the sale go smoothly.
Exceptional individual that goes above and beyond. She's very sweet, ethical, honest, driven, trustworthy and such a valuable asset to your company.
Great experience with Donna! - Jill Conser Tampa, Flori June 2017
he was very helpfull. - Hubert Dornseifer Mt Pro May 2017
Serafin was very helpful in searching for our first home. He explained the process well to us and was patient during our search. He was always quick to respond and easy to communicate with. - Angie & Mike, Chicago February 2017
Mary Howe is an outstanding realtor, and I highly recommend her. She did a great job for us in marketing and selling our house in Chicago. She is a Chicago native and knows the north and northwest sides of Chicago in and out. Mary Howe is poised, intelligent, articulate and a very hard working, on the buyer or the seller's behalf. She is a great saleswoman, and people like and trust her. As do we, absolutely. We were very happy with her work on our behalf - thanks, Mary! - Pat Carey, Chicago, Il October 2015
Al is great to work with very nice guy i would recommend h8m to all my Veteran friends any anyone else looking to purchase property.This is my first purchase and he shared a great deal of knowledge about the entire process from beginning to end. Thank you so much AL. Michael Heard Jr. MPA U.S. Army Combat Vet - Michael Heard,chicago,il October 2017
I went with Robert because I knew he would get the sale done well, quickly, with a minimum of fuss and a maximum return. I worked with him when I had bought the place a few years ago, and would never consider using another broker in Chicago, either buying or selling.
Robert did an outstanding job of generating interest - on the first day we were listed we had a number of prospective buyers come by and express interest. Every aspect of marketing was done with an eye towards getting me the maximum value for my home with minimum disruption.
We were selling our place through Robert while also buying one out of town, contingent on the sale, which is a stressful situation. Robert handled the sale excellently - he provided great suggestions on ways our home would show better without disrupting our day to day lives. He organized showings to be as minimally disruptive as possible, and he brought in an offer for exactly what we wanted in a very short time. I cannot recommend Robert highly enough. - Kate Samuels, Chicago May 2017
Thanks for everything Margaret

Our broker, Donna Manella is a professional with excellent knowledge of the industry, area and is responsive to our needs. We have used her in the past and recommend her to everyone who asks us.
Donna Manella is the type of agent/broker who always keeps your concerns at the forefront of her work. Her commitment to you is reassuring and helpful throughout the entire process.
Donna took control and utilized all aspects of marketing, negotiation and advertising for our property. She proceeded at an excellent pace to allow for a sale in a very timely fashion.
We were very satisfied that our interests were met during the experience from start to finish. - Dan & Donna O'neill, Chi January 2017
Enri did a great job! Had lots of patience was attentive to detail and had our best interest first. We had an easy process as Enri was very knowledgeable. Thanks Enri for helping us find the perfect home!! - Lupe And Ramon, Chicago June 2016
Great job well done!!!! ...Serafin - Linda Castaneda . Chicag June 2016
We actually were looking for a house to rent, not purchase. Mary stepped up and took over our search in the best possible way. Even though there wasn't a lot in it for her, she never stopped working to find us exactly what we wanted and needed. And, when the house we wanted proved difficult -- we thought impossible -- to get, Mary kept at it and we ultimately got the house.
Mary was great. We'd recommend her to anyone, and have already done so. - Ron Kirschner And Patric May 2015
Al is a very professional, honest, knowledgeable real estate agent who not only listened to my specific needs but found a home that exceeded my expectations. I was a first time buyer and was really nervous about the process; he guided me through the inspections, documents, etc. all the way to the closing date. Having someone with experience every step of the way made this a wonderful experience. If you want results I will strongly recommend Al, he did an amazing job!! - Grecia Calderon, Forest October 2017
Bob Teverbaugh was a great broker and knew the various Chicago neighborhoods like the back of his hand. He was very knowledgeable and had great insight into neighborhood trends and hotspots that were pertinent to our search. He got us into properties within a very short period and always made room in his schedule to accommodate our home search.
Bob Teverbaugh was always there to answer questions and help us throughout the process, especially after we were under contract, going above and beyond his duties. When the seller and their attorney dropped the ball during the week of closing on our condo, Bob jumped in and got us to the finish line.
Bob was with us every step of the way and answered all of our questions. He was friendly, honest, and a great person to work with! I will highly recommend working with Bob to my family and friends. - Kyle, Chicago Loop April 2017
Margaret fought hard in the buying process for my partner and I. I could not have asked for better, they went above and beyond, and made my partner and I feel confident in buying our first home. They were extremely knowledgeable of the first time buying programs available and really took the time to make sure my partner and I fully understood the whole process of buying our first home. It makes all the difference that Margaret is an extremely caring person who inspires and puts all doubts to rest throughout this stressful process. I have already started recommending the Allen Team to anyone that will listen!! - Eva Allen, Berwyn, Il July 2017
Donna helped us through the whole process with a professional and calm manner. She kept us on track and gave us that gentle nudge when needed. We will definitely be using her services for any future purchases in the area. - John Hale & Antony White January 2017
I love how Serafin always put our needs first and always made us feel important. - Aracely Serrano, Huntley June 2016
