There is no way that I have enough space here to say all the wonderful things about Dominic that I wish to express. He just helped my husband and I close on a BEAUTIFUL condo—our first home together! He negotiated a fantastic price and even convinced the owners to cancel their open house after we made our offer. He is totally above-and-beyond: he has tons of helpful (and truthful!) advice and knowledge about the neighborhood (Buena Park and Uptown) and the buildings themselves. We truly consider him a friend and confidant after working with him. Again, cannot recommend Dominic enough!!!
Dominic Irpino and his team at IRPINO Real Estate have far exceeded my expectations throughout the processes of purchasing my new home, from start to finish. I wish I had a Dominic by my side in the future for every large task I come across in life. Buying my first home naturally had me anxious about all the decisions purchasing a new home entails. Being new to the City of Chicago, I expected to spend countless hours of my time exploring, researching, and viewing the possibilities the vast Chicagoland market has to offer. But after meeting Dominic, he insisted on sitting down with me, not only listening to my needs and requests that my new home required but he took the time to learn who I was as well. He asked about my hobbies and the reasons I was interested in moving to Chicago. Any realtor can locate and buy a client a home, but it was exceptional to have Dominic find me a neighborhood and a home that was perfect for me. He was truly there every step of the way. Giving his time at any hour of the day and being very prompt to address any questions or concerns. It’s difficult to come across exceptional service that goes above the standard but IRPINO Real Estate far exceeded my expectations in a realtor brokerage. Dominic’s knowledge of the market and years of experience are very prevalent. To people interested in both the City of Chicago as well as the suburbs, I recommend IRPINO Real Estate. Truly a class act.
Dominic has a unique real estate practice. His business has been built from the ground up as a family business which provides exceptional service. He is quick, complete, and knowledgeable, knows his geographical area, negotiates in the best interest of his client, and provides advice in a manner that is easy to understand and local. Would I work with him again – absolutely!
I have known Dominic for a number of years. His construction company did extensive renovations on my home in Lakeview back in 2011, and they did a fantastic job. In late 2016, my wife and I decided to sell that home and buy something slightly bigger in Ravenswood. We didn’t hesitate and turned, again, to Dominic, this time wearing his Realtor hat. Let me jump to the bottom line, and then I’ll go back and fill in details: HE HAD MY HOUSE UNDER CONTRACT IN 10 HOURS. And for just slightly under the asking price. Drop the microphone. He did an amazing job helping us price the house correctly and getting it ready for market. He advised us what we should repair or paint, and, equally important, what wasn’t necessary to do. He brought in this incredible photographer, who uses some special process, so the photos in the listing were beautiful and clear and had real depth to them. He created a slick brochure, and he scheduled an open house. The house was under contract the day the MLS listing went active, and two days before the open house. I am 100% certain that this is a direct result of the advice that Dominic gave us, and the way the house showed in the photos. Beyond the mechanics of handling the listing and the sale, Dominic is just a wonderful person. He is so genuine, it’s almost alarming. It is readily evident that he loves what he does, that you will be proud to have him serving as your agent, that he will absolutely and without any doubt do right by you. No games, no tricks, no salesmanship. Candor and sincerity. And he’s pretty funny, too. As for the flip side of the transaction, Dominic represented us as buyers when we located the new house. We couldn’t find one we liked in the existing inventory, but he noticed a home under construction. He contacted the builders, scheduled a visit, and we came to look and fell in love. Dominic handled everything from that point forward, to negotiating the price, working with the builder on the finishing of the house, dealing with various subcontractors that we brought in to do special projects, finding us a lender who we loved, finding us a real estate attorney who we loved, even helping make selections on things. Remember: Dominic also has a construction company, so he could look at the house while being built and give us a perspective on the quality of construction that no ordinary Realtor could. Anyway, long story short: we closed the same day we sold our Lakeview house, moved right in, and couldn’t be happier. Now, AFTER the sale, meaning AFTER he’s already received his commission, Dominic continues to work tirelessly with the builder on completion of punch list items. What more could you ask for?
