Anyone who needs help finding a home or condo should have Paul Gorney help them with that process. Paul has tremendous experience and knowledge in the real estate market. He helped my fiancee and I find the perfect condo that fit our needs.

Corey Wootton | Defensive Lineman | Chicago Bears

My husband and I worked with Paul when we moved to Chicago recently. He helped us hone in on the right neighborhood and the right type of home. The condo we ended up buying didn’t make the initial cut based on our home-search criteria, but Paul recognized it as a place that might be right for us and steered us in that direction. We’re glad he did.

Kathleen Getz | Dean, Quinlan School of Business, Loyola University Chicago

Dear Paul, I just spoke to someone who is moving to the area, and it made me think of our move from Chicago. I can’t help but be thankful for everything you did for Mike and me. After being referred to you by an executive at Walgreen’s, and hearing about the 2 successful Winnetka deals you did for my colleague, I had high expectations. We were uncertain with where to focus our search within the North Shore – which area we would like, and which school would work best for us. Your recommendation for our family of East Wilmette was spot on! I am thrilled with this area, the community in general, and the school. Thank you for your patience and your help with such a major decision. It never cased to amaze me that you knew so much about the area – I suppose raising 5 kids here doesn’t hurt! I have no doubt we would not have gotten our home had you not been our realtor. You knew about our house before it officially went on the market. You got us in early, and had to push us a bit to realize what a phenomenal deal we would be getting. Looking back now, it’s clear that you helped us get one of the best deals in Wilmette (I think our neighbors are still slightly upset with the price we paid!). To top it off, it was fun hanging out with you. Finding a realtor that’s so personable isn’t always easy – so glad we ended up working with you!

Dear Paul, As I wind up my mother’s estate, I want to thank you again for your exemplary service and representation during the sale of my mother’s condominium. Your keen analysis of the market, professionalism and diligence were keys to the prompt sale in a declining market. We are grateful for your efforts, and for your repeated willingness to go the extra mile to perform all necessary leg work to prepare the property for sale during a difficult and stressful time for our family. It has become a benefit to know a realtor to whom my partners and I can refer valued clients with full confidence that they will receive the utmost services and advice.

To Whom It May Concern: If you are looking to sell your home, I strongly recommend using Paul Gorney as your realtor. Because my family had to relocate due to a job change, we had to sell our house in one of the most difficult housing markets to date. With Paul as our realtor, our house was under contract in seven days! Paul provided personalized service throughout the entire process, which is rare with today’s realtors.
I have nothing but great things to say about Paul as both a person and as a realtor.

David H. Riggs | Vice President, Talent Brand Management

Having recently moved from out-of-state, Paul was extremely helpful in finding us the right property in Chicago. He was organized, efficient and always helpful throughout the process. Above all, he has a deep and broad knowledge of his market which was invaluable to us as buyers that were unfamiliar with the Chicago market.

Jonathan Walker | Private equity/ Investing

In addition to being a nice person to interact with, Paul is an outstanding real-estate agent. I had to sell my condo in June of 2011, when the market was really bad. Paul was a real professional. He was gentle in his dealing and advice giving, but was firm with me and with the buyer when it really mattered. As a result, my condo was sold at a good price within a few weeks. I highly recommend him.

Ehud Kalai | Professor at Northwestern University | Kellogg School of Business

I recommend him without hesitation to anyone who is looking for a results oriented real estate professional.

Nolan Harrison III, MBA | Senior Director, Former Player Services at NFL Players Association

Thank you for your excellent work selling my home this summer. After several frustrating months of trying to sell my house by owner, I listed the house with you. Much to my surprise and delight, your efforts quickly located a buyer and my house was under contract in less than 2 weeks!I appreciate your many years of experience in the business and would highly recommend you to friends and family in need of a great realtor.

Cole Stremmel | Attorney at Law at Cole A. Stremmel, P.C.

Paul is an incredibly astute listener and was completely focused on our priorities during our sale. My husband and I were really impressed with Paul’s negotiation skills and his unwavering commitment to secure the absolute best price–which ended up to be very good in our case. Paul went above and beyond to close the deal on the house and we couldn’t be happier. If you’re looking to make a move to or from the Chicago area, Paul is hands-down the person to maximize your buying or selling experience.

Carlye Gardner Fallon | Senior Vice President at Edelman

Paul was thorough and efficient in our recent home search, which involved three communities and over 20 homes. He was available, prompt and especially shone during the negotiation phase of our purchase.

Matthew Priesbe | Senior Analyst at Harris Bank

I’ve been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Paul Gorney in the past. Paul clearly is on the cusp of all that is transpiring in the real estate market and his experience, knowledge of the Chicago market, perspective, and general ability to work with a broad scope of individuals are illustrative of a top notch real estate agent.

Joel Jaglin, CPA, FACHE | Director, Health Industries Advisory, PwC

Paul is the only name you need if you’re looking for a fast efficient home sale in the greater Chicago area. He had our house under contract in two weeks after 2 seperate agents couldn’t elicit a single bid in over a year. Was it luck or an outlier? I tested this question by referring Paul to some friends and he delivered the same result. Paul talks a big game and delivers big results. For those of you interested in a friend, a psychiatrist or a polyanna you should go elsewhere as Paul’s style is matter of fact, honest, direct at times. For those who care only about the prize (maximized sale price) at the end of the difficult and personal process of home sale, put Paul at the helm.
