Nate is a true real estate professional. When we needed to execute on some challenging properties he was able to find the right buyer and make the sale from beginning to end as smooth as possible. I would recommend Nate to anyone who needs a detailed and focused real estate professional that wants results.
Nate is the hardest working agent I have had the pleasure of working with. He is tenacious and worked with me to find the right place at the right time. I could not recommend him more!
Nate recently assisted our company with a real estate acquisition in Chicago. As we are out of state, Nate was required to do all the “heavy lifting” from scouring the market based on our criteria, to keeping track of multiple properties of interest, leading the bidding process on our behalf and ultimately assisting with due diligence and the closing process. Even after we closed, Nate continues to follow up with us, even periodically driving by the property and reporting back, which is greatly appreciated and above and beyond his responsibility. Throughout the entire deal process Nate remained professional, responsive and on top of all the details. We look forward to closing many future deals with him
