"I spoke with John on the phone and in the first few minutes I knew he was the realtor for us. Rarely does someone make an impression to make me motivated to actually want to sit down and write a review. John made this very easy! John Lyons is remarkable that at every request we had he made happen with in a few hours. His professionalism, efficiency, energetic, and willing to listen and find the perfect home for us was incredible. John Lyons is now our family realtor and cannot think of recommending any one else. He is truly motivated to help you in anyway he can. Bottom line I can't imagine having a more positive experience and recommend him without reservation to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!! Thank you John Lyons"

"John helped us buy our first home in Chicago several years ago. When we learned we would be moving out of state this year, we knew we wanted John to help us sell. He was excellent to work with on both the buy and sell side. He was patient, knowledgeable, and very responsive to our every question/concern. We will always recommend John!"

"I hired John on reference from my estate attorney in order to sell a small condo on the North Side of Chicago. From start to finish, John has been incredibly responsive and professional, from our initial meeting to keeping me informed every step of the way with status, even if there were no developments that week. He is tech savvy and casts a wide net for potential buyers. The condo sold quickly at a very nice price compared to similar sales in the complex. John was very clear in the negotiation process about his approach and did not pressure me to lower the price dramatically to make the sale or anything of the sort. 10/10, would hire again."

"John is everything you hope for in a realtor: experienced, professional, responsive and level headed. John provided detailed research and analysis on the market and comps. Because of his network, he was able to sell our Lakeview condo before it even went on the market. In fact, our condo sold so fast John also helped us find temporary housing to stay in before our new home was ready! It was a great problem to have, and John solved it. Would highly recommend John. Pleasure to work with across every dimension."

"John was a true professional throughout the entire process. He was very knowledgeable of the market and was a great resource to me as a first time home-buyer in Chicago for the entire life cycle from initial viewing through close. He has been extremely responsive from the first time we met nearly three (3) years ago.

I would recommend John for anyone looking to buy or sell and will utilize him as my trusted adviser in my next residential transaction.

Thank you, John, for everything you have done!"
