He is very professional, and I have alot of confidence in his guidance. Mike has a large network of mortgage people, inspectors, contractors, movers, attorneys to make the entire purchase or sale process less stressful. Mike is very likeable and at the same time a no-nonsense adviser. I would recommend Mike without reservation.

My 30-something son doesn’t always make the best choices, but he gets an A+ for choosing Michael Solarz. Impressive knowledge of the local market and tireless viewing of properties. Also very sharp on the pricing part which was very important for my son to get the house he really wanted. The entire buying process from home searching to closing was quite smooth. I was very pleasantly surprised on Michael’s ability to make the whole thing happen."

"I have known Mike for many years. He is reponsible, pays attention to details, and treats his clients how he would like to be treated. That was always advice he would give to me. Mike has loved real estate since he was a kid. His father (who owned rental properties) taught him the basics at a young age. Mike progressed, obtained his license, and has not looked back. I know Mike would love to hear your needs and get to work on finding you what you want. You will be in good hands."

In my humble opinion, Michael is a real estate genius. I have known and worked with many brokers across the country, and I even worked for a commercial broker for 10 years in a non-broker capacity-- and I have found Michael the complete pro when it comes to this business. He knows how to identify the right properties, determine the right prices and navigate the many details required to make for a smooth transaction. He is also a great writer and marketer. When he lists a property you can be sure that you will have top quality professional photos and colorful, captivating language to bring out the best of any property. I would definitely recommend Michael if you are thinking of selling or buying. He will get the job done for you.

"If you are looking for a true professional to help you buy or sell a home Michael is the real deal. Unlike the myriad of other agents and brokers I have worked with, Michael listens, offers thoughtful advice and takes the time to really understand the marketplace.

"After I met Michael Solarz I learned that he had had a very successful career in advertising prior to RE. The latter really showed in his deep understanding of RE markets, trends, pricing, and processes which I truly appreciated and valued. Michael used this expertise to help me achieve my goals in acquiring multiple investment properties. I feel that Michael’s commitment to his job and clients (like myself) earns him the highest levels of praise for his knowledge, his use of technology, his manners and civility and (also!) his humor which he uses to create a pleasant buying and selling experience. I also learned that while Real Estate was Michael’s passion, his heart always lied with his family of 2 wonderful children and a charming wife of many years. Their love and support played a critical role in his success, throughout his entire professional life"

"Michael did a superb job helping us buy our Evanston home, sell our Evanston condo and purchase a lakefront Wilmette property for our In-Laws. He really took the time to understand what we were trying to accomplish, communicated incessantly throughout the process and completely delivered on all fronts. We especially appreciate his network of advisers - we've worked with his real estate attorney now for several years. He's a true professional with a superb marketing flare and we've introduced him several times to our friends and family. I heartily recommend his expertise on all fronts. He's smart, attentive, caring, knowledgeable and just a terrific guy"
