Al Farkas

I purchased my first home in 2001 and could not have guessed that years later, I would begin a career in real estate. l love seeing homes for the first time and nothing makes me happier than being the matchmaker linking happy individuals to beautiful homes. I've lived and worked all over the metro. However, the bulk of the last 17 years have been spent in the western suburbs. While I do work with all types of buyers, I love educating my client and it's always my favorite working with first time home buyers. My passion is real estate, and I look forward to handling your needs.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Al. He’s an amazing realtor, very honest, works hard, has incredible communication skills, and helped us find our perfect home even when I lived in a completely different state. My favorite part about Al is his responsiveness, communication & ability to go above and beyond in every situation. We always knew the what was happening with our home purchase every step of the way. He consistently sent us homes that matched our criteria of what we wanted, went with us to look, gave honest opinions & reviews, and once our offer was accepted, he always made sure we were well aware and comfortable with everything. If you are looking for a realtor with integrity and incredible work ethic, Al is the man for you.

I highly recommend Alan Farkus on both the buying and selling side. He did an amazing job using many tools to help us find a townhouse, along with great strategies on how to achieve the winning bid during a hyper-competitive Covid market. Then, when selling our single-family home, he was a great team player, listening and consulting to help us achieve a much higher price for our home thanks to the tools he used to build amazing awareness and traffic, both online and showings. And along with great realtor skills, he is a great person as well. Hire Al and you'll have success.

Al worked so hard to help us sell our house and get us into our dream house! He was honest, realistic, extremely knowledgeable, and was definitely a team player. He was always available to us and his communication with my husband and I blew me away. We never had to worry about what was going on, because we were always the first ones to know about changes or updates. Buying and selling can be very stressful, but Al most certainly did all he could to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible. Thanks so much, Al!!

Al was terrific to work with! He helped us sell our first home. He kept us informed throughout the entire process, answered all of our questions and always made himself available when it fit in with our schedules. He was able to explain and summarize what each step of the process entailed. Al would always answer my e-mails, calls or texts either immediately or within a very short time. He was patient with us and reassured us when we got anxious. While he always offered his expert opinion, he never pressured us and we always felt like we were in control during the whole process. Al was understanding of our busy schedules and took on more responsibility than expected, he'd run over to the vacant home to check on it or get it ready for a showing while we were at work. He helped us negotiate for things we wouldn't have thought of during the initial offer, inspection and after the appraisal. I feel confident we got the best offer on our house and sold the property as quickly as possible and I attribute that to working with Al. I highly recommend!
