His research and planning was always thorough and done quickly. He acted as a guide and advisor and his goal always seemed for us to be happy and find the right place.

Recently I had the privilege of working with Mr.

Todd Fike on the sale of my parent’s home in Chicago. He soon became a friend and not just a real estate agent. He understood how hard it was for me to sell my childhood home. He was not only very professional, but he went above and beyond to help me not only sell my home, but to do some finish work. I feel very lucky to have met him and he truly made this so much easier for me. He is willing to go that extra mile to help. It seems to me that it was not just a job to him; he took it to the next level just by caring. Thanks again!

We really enjoyed working with Todd and Karen to purchase our new home.

The things that attracted us to them were their friendly easy-going personalities combined with an honest straightforward approach. We could tell that they were extremely dedicated to their profession. We also really liked that they were a husband and wife team working together. They went out of their way to knowledgeably answer all of our questions and expertly guide us through the process as first time home buyers and they were always available to take care of any issues that came up. They made our first home purchase a great experience and we look forward to recommending them to our friends in the future.-M. Barklage

Todd was awesome!

! He's very knowledgeable with todays market. Gave helpful suggestions and were very nice throughout the whole process. (almost 3 Years)The office of Christine Garner were very good handling the banks. The Banks were very difficult to deal with but they kept on until we finally able to close.Thanks everybody for all your help. We appreciate everything and we will definitely refer you to all our friends.

We had a refurbished one bedroom apartment to sell.

Mr. Fike had it staged while otherwise making no changes, and sold it for 45% more than we paid for it three years ago! He had a good local attorney to provide the legal aid, and it was sold in 72 hours and the sale closed in less than a month! There were no ugly surprises, we were fully informed almost daily as to progress, and the entire process was - even - pleasant!

-R.Lee

You did a great job finding what we were looking for in the price range we wanted.

We will recommend you to all our friends!

Todd was the most helpful realtor!

As a first time renter, he helped me realize things I might need/want when looking for an apartment in the city. He picked places for us to go see that met all my "must haves" and really listened to what I wanted in an apartment. I could not have done it without him and absolutely love the place he helped me find.

Wow, where do I even begin?

Todd Fike is incredible.  First time buying in this market is like a chess game and Todd has made all the right moves navigating me through this process. It was my first rental property purchase and there was so much I thought I knew that I didn’t know! Todd guided me all the way. I know the spoon was heavy with me.  I give him an AAA    I would refer anyone to Todd--he\'s an angel. He is very detailed and patient with explanation of procedures and forms. He has supplied referrals for other information I required that was outside of buying real estate (i.e. contractors, good prices on materials, etc).Todd is a consummate professional. He knows his business and the area in and out!  He gives generously of his time, his knowledge and himself.  Todd has shown me countless houses and has spent countless hours with me. He even showed me properties that weren’t even on my list that he came across that were suited for me and my situation!  He has a wonderful engaging style and manner. Todd was always pleasant even during stressful times. I cannot imagine a better real estate agent. I do imagine that all clients who work with him recommend him to others.  I will recommend him to anyone and I will only work with him going forward. He totally has my trust.

Todd did an excellent job negotiating to the price we wanted.

He was very knowledgeable about when it was the right time to buy and made the process of buying a home in Chicago pain free.

Todd and Karen Fike are remarkable partners who work hard to develop long-term relationships, skillfully advise their clients, and get any job done.

We've had the good fortune of having experienced a wide breadth of their services. When we were buying an apartment, Todd was actually the seller's agent, but was a tremendous resource to us, and we greatly appreciated his straightforward and open style. After that transaction, Todd and Karen kept in touch with us, checking in over the years to see how we were doing and offering friendly advice when asked. When we determined to buy a new house and sell our apartment, there was no question in our minds that we'd work with Todd and Karen. They guided us on a highly successful purchase of our dream home, helping us stick firm to our offering price despite pressure. And they worked with us to sell our apartment in only four days at the top range of our asking price. Todd and Karen are exceptional partners and friends, and we could not recommend them more highly.

Todd and Karen were well beyond fantastic.

They found us a qualified buyer who obtained her loan through the VA. Prior to setting up our closing our buyer and the VA made last-minute demands. Todd was able to face and solve each and every issue on short notice. Eleventh-hour problems SOLVED. I'm an attorney who does not deal with real estate closing and the problems that can pop up. Todd and Karen made this sale happen. Thanks.

-S. Sherwin

Todd made the short sale process much less stressful than I thought it would be.

His personality and demeanor put me at ease immediately.

Todd Fike has represented me on two occasions, once for a purchase and once for a sale.

  Both times he did a great job following up on all the details and keeping in touch with all of the parties to the transactions.  Todd returns phone calls promptly and responds to emails quickly.  He has a thorough knowledge of current market conditions and knows the ins and outs of handling foreclosed properties and short sales.On the purchase, which was a bank owned property; his efforts with the bank helped me buy the property at a very favorable price.  Todd is a great negotiator and represents his client aggressively in every stage of the transaction. On the sale he worked hard to keep the deal together even when faced with problems from the buyer\'s lender.  Without his efforts I believe the sale would not have closed.In summary, I would highly recommend Todd to anyone looking for an agent who is hard working and dedicated to providing great service to the client.

I have never worked with an agent that was so personal and serious about doing what is best for their clients.

Professional and honest individual who works with a sense of urgency all on your behalf. I lost my husband some years ago and was not sure about moving from my home of 8 years. However, after meeting with Todd and giving me a run down as to what would happen and what I would need to do step by step helped me tremendously!!! And then being able to assist me in finding a new place to live.... words cannot express the appreciation that I have for Todd and his wife. My daughter and I have already adopted them as family. I have recommend Todd and his wife to several of my friends. Only if they want things done right.

Todd worked very hard to market the property.

He stays in touch and keeps the process moving forward.

Todd Fike worked tirelessly to get our property sold efficiently and quickly!

Todd's knowledge and professionalism are unparalleled. Todd/Karen Fike made our selling process so much easier and enjoyable this time around. We can't thank them enough!

The Fike team provided exceptional service.

Numerous times, they went above and beyond duties typically expected of a broker. Over an extended period of time, as we confronted a difficult market, they applied only the highest professional and ethical standards.

Todd worked very diligently to help me purchase and sell the property.

He was great at clarifying the home buying process for me and describing the details as well as what I need to do to have the best home buying experience. He fought for my best interest and the best deal for me. Todd was great about keeping in constant contact and alerting me of any updates in my process. I would strongly recommend Todd to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Todd and Karen Fike work well as a team; they listened to my concerns in regards to my own unique circumstances and worked diligently to get my house sold.

Within two weeks of taking the photos, and marketing my house on the Internet, we had a buyer and closed within the month.Yes, by the end of the month I closed on the sale of my house... unbelievable! Todd Fike was truly a blessing.

Todd was incredible!

Fast, courteous, reliable, I can't say enough good things about his service!

Buying my first home was nerve reckoning.

It was a dream that I did not thought possible until I meet Todd. As a first-time home buyer, there were tons of information that was thrown at me that I quite did not understand. Todd made the process bearable as he is truly knowledgeable about real estate and the process of buying a quality home and especially one that is worth investing into. As most home buyers, I had a budget and specific location as to where I wanted to live. It was a waiting game as there are unfortunately a very, very low inventory of houses in Chicago in my price-point. I wanted to live as close to family as possible but encountered challenges as I was outbidden a few times on a few properties. At times I felt discourage but Todd was just a quick text or call away to reassure me that we would find a home for me. Todd is a reliable and easy to talk to agent. Communication with him was outstanding! He is very quick to setup appointments for viewing and willing to meet at the client’s convenience when possible during morning, day or night. Todd knew quite a few details of what to look for in the house and will walk with you throughout the property to point out pros and cons. He gave great suggestions about what to do with repairs and/or décor as he himself had purchased and rehabbed a property in the past. Todd is amazing at negotiating! When we did find a home for me (WOO-HOO!), which was in the perfect location and near my family, he was able to negotiate prices and items that allow me to come under budget! I am truly blessed to have meet Todd and will continue to reach out to him for advice. I would recommend anyone to use Todd as their agent. I am looking forward to working with Todd for future purchases and selling endeavors. Thank you Todd! I am loving my new home!

Throughout the sale process Todd's experience and hard work resulted in a sale price above my expectations.

His negotiating skills are first rate and his supporting cast takes care of every detail.

-J.Doherty

As a new developer, I was fortunate to work with Todd Fike on a recent investment property which turned out to be a positive experience and a profitable investment.

When I met with Todd, he spent hours answering my questions and concerns. He provided objective data regarding how many and what types of properties get sold in the areas of interest to me, how long listings typically stay on the market, and also significant amount of information on comps in the area. I was quite impressed with his efforts and diligence, which level-set my expectations from the get go. Todd made the entire process from advising on selecting the location/property to closing the sale incredibly easy. He took extra steps that many other realtors don't (but should), like having a pro come and give us staging tips, having professional photographs taken, and a lot more. I find Todd to be honest and trustworthy, and a pleasure to work with. He's a true professional with an abundance of knowledge on real estate and he is genuinely a nice guy. We are now in the process of working on another investment property, and I look forward to working with Todd for years to come. Thanks for everything Todd!

Todd did an incredible job throughout the entire process.
