TESTIMONIALS

See what Hunter’s happy customers are saying.

Hunter is the ultimate professional in real estate. I’ve used him over the past 6 years for one rental and two new homes (one purchase, one sale and purchase), and I have only wonderful things to say. First, Hunter gives you his full attention when he’s with you. He is engaging, kind, honest and even entertaining. Second, Hunter’s attention to detail is amazing. He has the experience to walk through a property and understand its pros and cons. In contracts and negotiations, he informs you of large and small details so you feel confident in your decisions. He will tell you when your expectations are in line with the industry…and when they aren’t! Finally, Hunter is trustworthy. He does what he says, on the schedule he promises, and communicates when there is difficulty or delay. I can’t recommend Hunter highly enough. There’s no question in my mind that you will be happy with him!
Kristina, Psychologist, PsyD
Hunter worked patiently, enthusiastically, and professionally with us for OVER A YEAR to find the right place in a very competitive market. He continued to keep us in mind as opportunities came onto the market, and was flexible, available and attentive whenever we needed. It was very evident that he was working hard on our behalf and that he genuinely cared about our outcome and our satisfaction. That should seem obvious when hiring someone to represent you, but is not always the case and should not be taken for granted. I always enjoyed and appreciated his excitement and dedication to getting the right deal done. I would absolutely use him again myself, and have no reservations in recommending him to anyone looking to buy a home in Chicago.
David, Vice President, Development Management | LEED AP Trammell Crow Company

We knew we wanted to work with Hunter immediately after meeting him. He is professional, straight forward, and effective. He was honest about his experience and we trusted his opinion on all matters. He was patient during or relocation process and we appreciated that! He comes highly recommended.

Paul, Controllership Integration Leader, a GE company

Hunter helped me to sell my South Loop condo this spring in 6 days from listing to sale. As a first time seller (the first home I have owned) I was nervous and less than knowledgeable about the particulars of being the seller versus the buyer. Hunter was very helpful in explaining things to me in detail and understanding that I had lots of questions along the way. Hunter’s services included amazing photography of my place, personalized open house (he was there not simply his representative), showings as they came in and again, answering all of my many questions! He even helped to replace the battery in my (at the top of the ceiling) smoke alarm when I was out of the country and it very inconveniently began to beep. Hunter was confident in getting a good price for my unit and I was happy with the sale price. It took some negotiating to get there and it was nice to have an agent who was confident and knowledgeable about the negotiating process. Finally, Hunter helped me to secure a real estate attorney that he works with regularly and helped to coordinate things as we moved toward inspection, appraisal and closing. I have learned that selling is more stressful in many ways than buying, and I will say that Hunter definitely helped to keep me calm and get to the finish!

Rachel, PHD, Psy. D, Clinical Psychologist

I was referred to Hunter by a friend and couldn’t have been more impressed with his professionalism and inside knowledge. I needed to find and close on a 1 bedroom property in the Gold Coast/Streeterville area in 30 days, and Hunter could not have been better at understanding my needs and walked me through the entire process from start to finish. When touring condos, Hunter asked insightful questions and pointed out the pros and cons of a place, making it much easier to narrow down my top choices after seeing over 15 properties. Hunter was able to negotiate a great price on my top choice, and was in constant communication with me throughout the entire closing process when I was out of the state (even going to my inspection for me to ensure everything was in good shape). I would highly, highly recommend working with him!

Shea, J.D. Candidate at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law 2017 – 2020

Hunter is fantastic. We were looking to buy in the Chicago south loop, & I can’t imagine a better partner to work with than Hunter. Besides getting the benefit of Hunter’s broad knowledge & contacts, he was extremely responsive to all of our questions, & he was very proactive in sending new listings to us as they came to market. He always made time for us, & we viewed quite a few homes in the area. It took a couple of months, & with Hunter’s help, we found our new home. We recommend him highly!

PELLISOR, HOME BUYER

Living in NYC & selling my condo in Chicago started out as an extremely stressful experience. As soon as we started working with Hunter, the stress was replaced with confidence. Hunter continuously went above & beyond to keep me aware of how things were going. His knowledge of the market was incredible. And at the end of the day, he priced my condo absolutely perfectly. It sold in a few short days. It was simply amazing. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hunter to anyone & everyone.

DAVID, HOME BUYER

Hunter NEVER pressured me to sign with certain apartments – he truly had me and my roommate’s best interests at heart, and was always keeping our price range and specifications in mind during our search. Hunter is a broker you can trust. He is incredibly knowledgeable and sharp about the real estate business. Hunter is the most impressive and professional broker I’ve dealt with, and it was a true pleasure (and joy!) working with him.

NANCY, BUSINESS ANALYST AT DELOITTE CONSULTING

Thank you for all of your hard work with our condo, Hunter. You were a pleasure to work with, and we wouldn’t have been able to go under contract this quickly without your help! My wife and I will highly recommend you to any friends/family looking for an agent in Chicago.

GREG, ATTORNEY

It was an absolute pleasure working with you. I really mean that. Thanks again for all of the hard work you put in to help us sell our condo. Anne and I are really excited to move on. Please let me know if there’s anything we can do to help you moving forward. Thanks!!!

DAVID, GRAPHIC DESIGNER

Just wanted to thank you for referring me to Hunter Andre. He did an outstanding job, from valuation to listing, presentation (he has an excellent photographer & understands why photos are so important to listings), referred me a reasonable attorney to handle a somewhat complex closing & got us an excellent result. Although this was a very low value transaction & the commission was not much of an enticement, Hunter handled it professionally & with a lot of attention.

JOHN, NORWOOD CONSULTING

We loved working with Hunter. He was tireless in lining up places for us to look at, and was also flexible and accommodating in working with our schedules. It took a few months of searching but Hunter was always optimistic and kept us from getting discouraged. Eventually we did find the perfect home (just like he said we would!). He helped us navigate the purchasing process and made everything relatively painless, from our initial offer through closing. I would recommend Hunter to anyone.

KARI & JOSH, ADVERTISING EXECUTIVES

I would like to take this opportunity to recommend, & thank Hunter Andre for being the utmost professional when representing my family’s property in the South Loop. Our home rented in only 2 weeks! Hunter impressed me with his attention to finer details & helped guide us through our first experience in the rental market. He was highly responsive to all phone calls & emails, as well as keeping us apprised of his progress. His hard work made the process smooth & as stress-free as humanly possible.

RENÉE, INVESTOR

Moving to Chicago was a very stressful time. One thing that reassured me prior to my move is knowing that Hunter was working so hard at finding the perfect apartment for me. He totally devoted my first weekend in town to showing me apartments & by Sunday night I was set. He did not stop there, he kept on helping me through the signing of the lease etc. I had dealt with other agents but no one could compare to the care & attention Hunter gave me & his understanding of what I was looking for.

DOMINIQUE, EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT

It was a real pleasure working with Hunter. He is very honest and trustworthy, and I had no doubt that he had my best interest in mind. He did an excellent job educating me about the current real estate market and was dedicated to finding the best solution for me. I would highly recommend using Hunter for your real estate transactions and I look forward to working with him for my future real estate needs.

SARA, ATTORNEY AT LAW

Hunter Andre possesses all the attributes of an excellent broker: knowledge of the market, diligent, responsive, supportive, open to suggestions, & extremely patient with his clients. Hunter is both professional & personable & clearly takes pride in doing a great job. Hunter continued to support us through the entire home purchasing process, right up through closing. We would recommend Hunter to all of those looking to purchase or sell, & we look forward to working with him again in the future.

THE HUGDAHL FAMILY, HOME BUYERS

Hunter is at the absolutely top of his class – an outstanding professional whom I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend for a second. Knows the Chicago real estate scene inside and out.  Would recommend friends and colleagues alike to him.

JOHN, DIRECTOR, INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF TERRORISM AT PENN STATE UNIVERSITY

Hunter is an outstanding real estate agent who considers both your needs & your best interests. He acts on your behalf as a personable, caring expert to define your property desires & make them come true. I have hired Hunter twice, once to help me find a rental & once as my agent in purchasing a condo. Both experiences were pleasant & efficient, with outstanding results. I trust Hunter to know the market, to listen to me and put in his 2 cents from expertise to steer me in the proper direction.

KRISTINA, PSYD

We loved working with Hunter. He was tireless in lining up places for us to look at, and was also flexible and accommodating in working with our schedules. It took a few months of searching but Hunter was always optimistic and kept us from getting discouraged. Eventually we did find the perfect home (just like he said we would!). He helped us navigate the purchasing process and made everything relatively painless, from our initial offer through closing. I would recommend Hunter to anyone.

JIM & JENNIFER, ATTORNEY AT LAW & CPS SCHOOL TEACHER

Hunter is a very professional and results oriented agent. I had dealt with other agents in downtown Chicago before, however, nobody showed the will and determination to find something that fit my needs. He is very personable and treats people with a lot of respect. He was always on time and prepared and made his clients feel as if they were his only priority. I appreciate his efforts in finding us a home and will continue to recommend him to anybody looking for a home.

TARAN, PROJECT MANAGER AT JP MORGAN CHASE

Hunter worked with me over a period of about 5 months to find a property in Chicago. Hunter knew the market well, made time whenever I was available, and put my interests over his own in every case. I do not think you could ask for better. I plan to work with Hunter again in the future and would recommend him to my friends or anyone looking to purchase a home in Chicago.

NICK, SENIOR CONSULTANT AT NAVIGANT

Thank you for working patiently with us through this search & successful closing. The kids played at our neighbor house with his kids while the movers unloaded the truck. We met neighbors on both sides of the house, across the street, & even the landscaping company employees at the industrial building down the block. We really couldn’t have asked for a better first day. Cheers! We’ll have you over soon after we get settled, it’ll be just like an episode of House Hunters.

DAVE & LYNDSAY, HOME BUYERS

Closing was completed. Kevin and I really appreciate the opportunity to work with you. Your professionalism and experiences made this whole transaction smoothly and feeling good.  You are #1. We will endorse your professionalism and trustworthiness. Kevin definitely would mention you to his friends, coworkers and classmates whenever they need to buy or sell home.

NANCY, INVESTOR

Hunter is very knowledgeable about the housing market particularly in the South Loop where he helped us find our current town home. During this process he was very active in helping us find our perfect home. Hunter listened to our needs & knew what listings would appeal to us. He was constantly sending us MLS listings, taking us on home showings, & keeping an eye out for us for anything new coming on the market. Hunter was always easy to reach if we had questions, & is personable & honest.

EMILY, HOME BUYER

Hunter is friendly, personable, and easy to get along with. He made us feel very comfortable and gave us his honest opinion instead of just trying to make a sale. He had a lot of knowledge on the different areas as well as knew the sales comps off hand. I would highly recommend Hunter to anyone that is looking in the Chicago area.

SONYA, HOME BUYER

I cannot recommend Hunter highly enough! Hire him…his expertise enabled me to buy and sell my current and previous homes at prices that were realistic and fair. Plus, his opinion on the sale ability of my home not only saved me some sprucing up costs, but was priced so that it didn’t languish on the market.

CAROLYN, SEGALL BRYANT & HAMILL

Highly recommend!!! Very knowledgeable and accommodating. Always willing to go an extra step to make a deal. Was present at every showing making sure prospective buyers were informed of all features and benefits of the home.

GARY, OWNER & OPERATOR OF NORTHFIELD DEVELOPMENT GROUP LTD.

I just want to drop you a quick note of thanks for working with our son Mike. Watching him work with you last weekend was a proud moment. You made him (& us) feel very comfortable with his very big first major purchase. There will be that special day when you will see your daughter do the same thing & you & your wife will be able to take a step back & say that you, as parents, did your job. Again, thanks for all that you are doing with Mike. We truly appreciate your direction & guidance.

MICHAEL, AVP, BANK MANAGER AT BMO HARRIS BANK

Hunter is the absolute BEST real estate agent around! I relocated from NY to Chicago & thankfully we had Hunter to help us. He spent countless hours helping us out, weeks before we even visited Chicago. He listened to what we were looking for & is incredibly knowledgeable on neighborhoods & the market. What impressed me the most about Hunter is that he had our best interests at heart, & was honest & truthful about what he saw.

MARC, PORTFOLIO MANAGER AT AON HEWITT

I live out of state, which made selecting a realtor difficult. Hunter guided me through an incredibly complicated short sale. Almost everything that could go wrong with a property did go wrong, but he hung in there to get me the sale. He was able to recommend contractors & an attorney. I am not one to shower anyone with praise, but if it weren’t for Hunter Andre I don’t know what I would have done. I recommend him strongly.

MATT, HOME SELLER

Thank you for helping my daughter (Stephanie Essling) find a place in Chicago. With me living in FL now, it was mentally difficult for me to miss looking at homes with her – however she felt totally comfortable with what you showed her and loved working with you. I’m so glad Jeff & Shari (Bohnson) recommended you. From the sound of things, my son will be contacting you when he decides to buy as well. I am flying home for the weekend on Aug 7th and can’t wait to see her place. Thanks again!

JEANNE, MOM

I absolutely loved working with Hunter! It was my first time purchasing a house, and he was the best. I have already been recommending him to friends, and look forward to working with Hunter in the future.

STEPHANIE, HOME BUYER

I cannot express a thousandth part of our thanks for the preparation you have done for the rental of my wife’s apartment. I see you have done everything possible and handled us in the very best way. My wife and I are very much grateful for it.

RAFAEL ROVIRA, HEAD OF CHANCELERY, PERMANENT REPRESENTATION OF SPAIN TO NATO

Congratulations on this closing. I want to personally thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to this file. It was an extremely difficult file. You went above and beyond in service. When asked to meet contractors and the corporate client you did so and most of this at a moment’s notice. I so appreciate all of the assistance you provided. Great job!

DONNA BISBEE, COLDWELL BANKER RELOCATION DEPARTMENT

My experience with Hunter included selling a building owned by multiple partners & purchasing 2 condos within a specified geographic location & time frame. Hunter’s knowledge of the real estate market, trends within neighborhoods & realistic property values were key to successfully closing all 3 deals. Hunter is extremely professional, focused, responsive, sets realistic expectations & ultimately delivers on those expectations. I would definitely recommend Hunter to anyone buying or selling.

JOYCE POLISE, SELLER & BUYER

Hunter, what a great video, super well done. I’ve known you for years and you are one of the most honest and straight forward gentlemen I’ve ever had the pleasure of calling a friend. If I was in the market for a downtown condo or if I had a friend that was in the market for a home/condo, you would be my absolute first call. Great job, Hunter!

TIM, DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL SALES, PREMIER MEDIA / JWC MEDIA

I cannot thank Hunter enough for all that he’s done for me throughout the process of purchasing my first home! I knew I wanted to work with him after the fantastic job he did helping my sister; however, it’s impossible to fully appreciate the amount of work Hunter puts in until you’re going through the process first-hand. Hunter’s hard work, presence with people, and knowledge of the market is unmatched and it was a pleasure working with him. Whether you are selling a luxury home, are a first-time buyer, or are looking to purchase a parking space for an automobile, Hunter is with you every step of the way, working harder than anyone else in the industry, and will answer your questions day or night. His explanation of the process/market and his ability to connect with people cannot be overstated. Hunter truly cares about his clients! I would recommend Hunter to anyone looking to purchase or sell real estate in Chicago and appreciate everything he’s done for my family!

MIKE, SENIOR IT CONSULTANT

I worked with Hunter in the 2013 time frame. I had a condo that I had to sell due to the office being relocated and other market factors, that we all experienced. My recommendation on how to increase your home’s value and accelerate your transaction velocity is hire Hunter. The transaction that Hunter signed up for was complex and of course had some financial roadblocks that was not going to make this one terribly smooth. What I liked about Hunter is as follows: he came with a realistic price range based on the market conditions; he brought a knowledge of the market and the transaction mechanics that helped me anticipate what is next; his follow-through on his commitments was overachieved; his personal presentation was always professional without being intimidating. It was disappointing to have to sell my loft, however, Hunter made the process and the communication of the process (between my lawyer, the financial institution, and the legalities of what needed to happen) as smooth as possible. In addition to the complexities we worked with, I truly liked Hunter’s personal demeanor. He was always congenial without being feigned. He comes highly recommended based on my experience.

STEVE, ACCOUNT MANAGER

We live out of state, which made selecting a realtor even more carefully than usual. Hunter is very knowledgeable about the housing market and in particular the West Loop where he helped us sell our condo in record time, and a record price! It was a real pleasure working with Hunter. He is very honest and trustworthy, and we had no doubt that he had our best interest in mind. My husband and I will highly recommend you to any friends/family looking for an agent in Chicago. Thanks again Hunter for all of your hard work!

RICHARD, MD

Hunter is a true professional. He is an expert on the Chicago metro area. He worked with me to sell a loft space in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. He explained every step of the process with great clarity. Hunter led the process every step of the way and was extremely active in communicating. We had daily interaction while showings were happening at the property. When we went to market, it was a collaborative process to come to a conclusion on listing price strategy. There was never a time when I thought that Hunter was not in control of the sale process. He was readily available whenever I had questions or wanted to get a pulse on the sale. I would definitely partner with Hunter again on a transaction.
