I was buying a home in Chicago, while living in New York. Meystel made the entire process painless. I visited Chicago three times and he was a master at finding what I was looking for.The agent Meystel has assigned to us was so professional, low key, no pressure, really knew his stuff. He guided us through the entire process, he showed down the areas to us, the prices, the styles, the community, etc. The agent from Meystel was excellent in the negotiations with the sellers and has been very helpful with finding service people to do work on the new purchase and referrals for things like restaurants, doctors, vets, etc. I have been extremely pleased with all the services that Meystel has provided to us. I will recommend Meystel to everyone that want to have an easy real estate purchase.

I highly recommend Follyn Builders! I cannot say enough about how thrilled we are with the stunning renovation to our 1910 brick 2-flat. Follyn created a "duplex down" turning a previously unfinished part of the basement into a family room, and remodeled the offices for our family business. The project also involved removing and rebuilding our rear porches and enclosed stairwell, as well as remodeling a bathroom, adding a powder room, and gutting and relaying our kitchen and our daughter's bedroom.We used an architect who created great plans, but John's vision and creativity have given us so much more usable space, and beautifully carried our dreams to fruition. We are so glad we entrusted our project to John. His honesty and work ethic are rare. Our architect recommended him initially. Her words were "I think you will find him quite capable." She was so right. We have this old house, and any unusual findings were nothing that gave John pause. Our home is over 100 years old, and is poised to last at least that long going forward.Follyn Builders has a vast list of excellent sources for materials and custom work. Their sources offer sharp pricing for quality work. John selects and works with a wonderful team of subcontractors. They are all pros whom I enjoyed being around when I was home. Even still, if something wasn't quite right, John would point it out to us first and then have it corrected. He had our backs every step of the way. Ann does an incredible job with materials management and all of the behind-the-scenes action like parking permits. On the very rare occasion where John is not available, Ann is also very capable on-site as well. Whether she is supervising an installation, or prioritizing the tasks of subcontractors to keep the work flow efficient, she is an experienced pro. I was completely blown away by the level of craftsmanship from the multi-piece molding and custom built-ins to the state-of-the-art technology employed.
They dugout my basement to increase the height, and poured a new concrete floor and stairs. Then they built out the basement. Everything was done on time and the work was first rate. I was kept apprised on how things were going every step of the way.Highly recommend!
Today, Saturday, October 8, 2016, a woman made what I assume was a marketing call at about 9:30 am. She asked for my mother who died 15 years ago. I told her to take our number off of her mailing list. She proceeded to say "This isn't a mailing list STUPID"! I will not be treated like this in my own home by anyone. I will go to all review sites possible with this and the BBB. Also they are NOT accredited by the BBB.
