"By far the best broker in Chicago! Mack understood everything about the buying process and was able to explain the whole process to me and walk me through step by step! He is patient, kind and truly loves what he does. I would recommend him to everyone who is thinking of buying or selling real estate. Thank you, Mack!"

- Steve

"I had been warned by so any friends that it's hard to find a Real Estate agent who considers what is best for you 100%. Well; we definitely found that in Mack! I cannot say enough how amazing of an experience we had working with Mack. He was patient, never pushed something that wasn't right...actually helped us not too expensive forward with a few properties because he knew they weren't good options for us. He held our hand throughout the process, connected us with AMAZING partners from lawyers to mortgage lenders to inspectors. After closing, he sent us thank you gifts, including adorable book for our 15 month old (who was in LOVE with Mack and she's a great judge of character). The little things like that really do go a long way. I could not recommend Mack more if you are buying or selling your house. He truly is the best you will EVER find!!!!! Thanks again Mack!!!"

- Natasha & Taylor

"Although the short sale experience can be overwhelming and quite scary at times, Mack's ability to answer all of my questions and outline the process from start to the closing has allowed me to proceed with confidence and assurance that I have made the correct decision. Mack is the consummate professional."

- Irene

"Mack was a very helpful broker. Throughout the process he extended himself to make the deal move forward. He was very helpful with advice and information regarding the area etc. He made himself available when I asked to see the property more than once. He also traveled to meet with me at my office which was very helpful to me. He was very responsive to all my questions etc. I highly recommend Mack."

- Michael

"Mack was my real estate agent for my purchase. He was available at all times whenever I was able to go house hunting. He is a good listener and a follow-through type of person. Bottom line, he worked hard to make the deal go through. Mack is easy going, non-pushy, honest and very patient. He looks out for your best interest. I look forward to doing business with him again!"

- Nasri

"Mack is an extraordinary broker. He is extremely knowledgeable about the market and a great resource throughout the whole process. He's a top-notch professional in every way: honest, trustworthy, attentive and responsive to our needs. He was of great assistance and we knew he was the only one we would go to when we were ready to move on."

- Adnan

"I was completely satisfied with how Mack handled the house hunt all the way through the closing on my perfect house. Mack's enthusiasm is genuine; he really enjoys his work. He's a knowledgeable professional that easily fielded all my questions and I would not hesitate to recommend Mack to anyone in the market for real estate."

- Maya

"If you are trying to sell your home we highly recommend Mack Alsaidi. Our place was on the market for 3 years. We had 5 different realtors before we heard about Mack Alsaidi. Mack sold our property within 3 weeks and we closed 3 weeks later. We found Mack to be very professional and caring about our situation, not only did Mack keep us informed via email; he actually took the time to call us on the phone very often, which is very rare today. Our only regret is that we did not know about Mack 3 years ago. We could have saved ourselves a lot of time, money and stress. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest grade, we give Mack a well-deserved 10!"

- Sally & Joaquim

"Mack successfully helped me in both selling my condo and buying a new one. He is professional and an expert. I was thrilled to get top price in selling. Mack is always accessible and goes above and beyond to make sure everything goes well. No need to look further, Mack is the BEST!"

- Chris & Lauren

"Mack is very responsive, creative, bright and a joy to work with. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. Mack assisted us in purchasing our condominium; his services were both stellar and excellent. Truthfully, if you don’t utilize the professional services of Mack, you are truly missing out on the opportunity to maximize your returns on the transaction or find the absolute right property for you."

- Nitish

"I was referred to Mack by a friend as I began my search for my first house. When I first started looking I was not sure if I was ready to buy or if I could afford it. Mack was great, he only showed me homes that were in my price range and had a great knowledge of the neighborhoods I was looking to buy in. After I put and offer on my house Mack was with me every step of the way until closing. He helped with getting information my lender required, worked closely with the seller's agent and my attorney to make sure everything was taken care of before closing. Overall, Mack made the home buying experience as stress free as possible and I absolutely love my new home."

- Saad

"Mack was wonderful to work with. He listened to our ideas, and helped us sort out what we needed from what we wanted. He was insightful, helpful, and upbeat, giving us his honest opinion while letting us come to our own decisions. Mack helped us sell our house and buy another under challenging market conditions -- we couldn't have done it without him, and we wouldn't have wanted to work with anyone else."

- Ali

"Mack is everything you want in a real estate agent and more. He really listens to your needs and is very knowledgeable about every aspect of the housing market and the city of Chicago. He is patient and never pushy. He made every effort to rent my condo. I would highly recommend him."

- Niveen

"Need a house? Selling a house? Call this guy...nobody in the city is going to work harder for you than Mack Alsaidi. He helped me purchase my condo and helped my friends purchase their condos. Everybody I've ever talked to that has dealt with him has enjoyed his professionalism and his efficiency. He will leave no stone unturned and do everything he can to make sure he finds the right fit for you both economically and lifestyle wise. The awards and honors he has earned speak volumes, but if you want a personal testimonial, take it from me you will not be disappointed if you use Mack Alsaidi."

- Chad & Abby

"Mack knows the real estate marketplace for our area and priced our home at a competitive price for the home to sell quickly. Mack's team was experienced throughout the process both on the marketing side and in working with the legal team assigned regarding the sale. Any questions that I had during the sales process were answered in a timely manner. We had a number of showings on the property due to signs, and the internet postings that Mack provided. From start to completion of the sale of the home, all of the guesswork was handled by Mack and his team, making the process very easy."

- Jennifer

"Very satisfied with Mack. He was helpful, friendly and patient. A pleasure to work with and look forward to working with him again in the near future."

- Tina

"Mack Alsaidi is a very courteous, easy going, always well-dressed, polite and friendly person. He is professional and timely for showings. And he doesn't get impatient with multiple and many showings until the client is satisfied. I have worked with a few Realtor before finding Mack, and all of the previous guys would become impatient in a few weeks and not respond to my requests for more showings. Mack never gets impatient, and he always picks up phone calls or calls right back, unlike some of the other Realtor I worked with. Some of the previous Realtor would give me the impression/illusion that they are very busy and I am taking too much of their time and need to see a property quickly, but Mack lets the client take adequate time properly seeing each property.He also gives good advice about which properties are worth considering and which are not. Mack gave honest advice about what prices to offer for any property. All in all, I would recommend Mack because of his professional, friendly and patient dealings with customers."

- Tanim

- Jacqueline

"I would highly recommend Mack. Mack is very prompt in responding to you and always on time (always showed up earlier then scheduled). Mack is very professional and courteous. Answers all your questions if he didn't have the answer right away he would get back to you very quickly. Very easy to work with and if you needed other services (attorney, insurance agent, etc.) he would give you referrals. I went with a few of his suggestion's and was also very happy with whom he referred. If I ever move again I would definitely call Mack."

- Caryn

"Working with Mack Alsaidi was the single best decision I made in my house hunt. He is not only extremely professional and knowledgeable but also patient with an requests. He worked tirelessly to ensure I got to see the homes i was interested in right away, and in the competitive marketplace this is very important. He consistently advised me on the properties we saw, from the area to the condition, in a completely unbiased way. When I finally found a home that meant my needs he made sure that all the resources and paperwork when through smoothly. He also has many contacts to reference any questions you may have that need other expertise. You will never regret using Mack as your real estate agent. He will make sure you find your dream home or investment property and get a fair deal on it with no surprises down the road."
