Jimmy Janevski - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

We could not have been more pleased with Jimmy and our overall housebuying experience.

We started our home search over a year ago, and Jimmy came fully prepared with a portfolio of the neighborhood, listings we wanted to visit and other relevant information. He is a wealth of knowledge and his experience shows. We went through several houses over a long period of time before we finally found the perfect house for us. Through this, Jimmy was extremely patient and we never felt any pressure, only someone who would be with us until we found what’s right. Once we did land on the perfect house, Jimmy was fully transparent and guided us through the negotiation process. What’s great about Jimmy, is he fully explains why he will take a certain position when negotiating and made us feel very comfortable with the price we ended up offering. Once we bid on the house, it took a few months to officially close as it was new construction. But during this time, as we were excited and wanted to visit the house on a few occasions to show family and take measurements, Jimmy willingly took us for these visits out of his own time. There was no obligation for Jimmy to do this, but he really stays with his clients until the very end. The closing went so smoothly, and we are thrilled with the purchase. We fully recommend Jimmy for all his knowledge, experience and dedication to his clients. We could have not asked for more from our agent!

We had Jimmy Janevski as our realtor on a previous property we had sold.

Based on his professionalism,integrity,and great communication, we did not interview any other agents when we decided to sell our second property. The property we just sold was listed live on a Thursday and after four showings we had an offer by Sunday morning. Jimmy does his homework regardless of where the property is to price the property according to the current market and so the pricing brings interest and offers for the sellers. Jimmy is a full time realtor,it is his only job and in working with him on two different sales it is his passion.

Michael Champion

As my husband and I navigate buying our first home as a couple, Jimmy has been so responsive to our questions and thoughtful and thorough with his answers.

We are confident with his expertise. His frequent communication really puts us at ease during this search. We are looking in several communities in the Chicagoland area, and he sounds knowledgeable about all of these areas.

Jimmy was very easy to work with.

Excellent communication skills. Keep me informed every step of the way and promptly returned my phone calls. Having dealt with the sale of more than a dozen properties in the past Jimmy was by far the best agent I have ever dealt with.

Nicholas S. Yurczak

This was not the first time I've purchased a house, but it was the first time I purchased with Jimmy Janevski as my realtor, and the experience was so much better.

From start to finish, Jimmy was informative, an excellent communicator, always available, and looked out for my best interests. Jimmy worked with us from the very beginning decision to put our house up (including some large gaps of time in between) all the way past closing with helping us with the post move process. He always made me feel informed throughout the process so that I was actively involved in everything. Overall, I was completely satisfied with Jimmy, and he would get my highest recommendation.

Kevin & Jilleen Gilmartin

"Jimmy exceeded our expectations at every level of the selling process.

 He calmly and effectively answered all our questions, provided excellent guidance and advice, was easily accessible and responsive, is an effective negotiator and marketer, researched similar properties and prices, and set a selling range that was fully on target.  He also provided us with names and contact information on firms that helped prepare the condo unit prior to sale.  Best of all, the sale resulted in us getting top price. Jimmy is an outstanding individual and real estate agent.  We would not hesitate recommending him to friends and relatives who are in need of assistance with any real estate need."

Dan M

I am an attorney who recently had the pleasure of working with realtor Jimmy Janevski on 2 real estate transactions; same client, a sale and a purchase.

The transactions involved many challenges and unfortunately, not all involved were as professional as one would like. Jimmy was called upon to assist in ways above and beyond the ordinary transaction and he did so with outstanding efficiency and grace. He had a lot to do with keeping these deals on track. Apart from his professionalism, his outstanding kindness must be acknowledged. Our clients were still moving out at 10:30, had not eaten all day and Jimmy brought them dinner at 10:30 on a Sunday night. Above and beyond. that's what you can expect with Jimmy. Terry Faloon

Jimmy was extremely professional in the whole process.

Update: I sold my old apartment with Jimmy too and again the same professional level.

In this hard times of the virus he managed to get is sold for the best price around. Its good when you have an agent that watches your back. Just keep going!!!Not one of the best. JIMMY IS THE BEST. Name a better agent i'll wait. He worked 100% for us. Wasnt afraid to tell us when he didnt liked a home and what were the reasons for it. He wasnt rushing just to make money and told us to take our time. In the end we ended up buying a house 25k under the appraisal value and if that wasnt enough he got us repair credit from the buyer and a free warranty. He highly suggested radon test which turned out to be positive and got us mitigation system. And on the last day before closing he went and find the heating not working and made them fix it. Just amazing guy

Living out of state, I needed a lot of help to sell my home and Jimmy was there for me every step of the way.

He took care of every detail, gave expert 'spot-on' advice and was reachable (email, text, phone) within minutes. I have dealt with other realtors in the past and I can honestly say that Jimmy is the best - a true professional all the way!!! Thanks for getting my home sold so quickly and smoothly.

Jimmy was honest and personable through the whole transaction of getting our house ready and then finally selling it.

He led us step by step and didn't hold anything back. He was very responsive with calls and emails to any of our questions.

Dominick Deleo

My wife & I met Jimmy at our very first open house.

He explained his job, company and how he could help us. The one thing that stood out is his statement that he could help guide us through the home buying process and would be with us every step of the way. I'm sure most realtors use that as a line, but with Jimmy Janevski it turn out to be his method of operation. Working with Jimmy was like going to Home Buyers 101. He really educated use every step of the process and got us across the finish line. If I had to give one bit of advice to a home buyer, it would be if you are looking to purchase a house and need a realtor, Jimmy Janevski is the guy to partner with to make that happen. He will be with you every step of the way.

Jimmy is prepared, organized, and very knowledgeable.

We came from another state and Jimmy prepared a small binder with potential properties, info about the area, and statistics about the current real estate market. His follow up is always prompt, and his negotiation skills allowed us to get a fair price on the home we chose to buy. I would recommend Jimmy to anyone! He takes care of his clients from start to finish!

We first met Jimmy for an introductory conversation in April of last year (2020).

Pretty quickly, we realized that he had a deep level of expertise, understanding of the market, and perhaps most importantly, that he is kind and genuinely cares about his clients. Jimmy spent a lot of time explaining the process, what to expect, and answering our constant stream of random questions. Our plan was to sell our condo and build a new home, but COVID slowed down our timeline. Over the following 11 months Jimmy checked in periodically without us ever feeling pressured. He helped us build a realistic plan to prepare our condo to list and provided great advice along the way. Ultimately we sold very quickly in a hot market and he helped us navigate competing proposals to get the best outcome for our family. He even gave us good advice on our new home build. We can’t recommend Jimmy highly enough. Jimmy now leads a team of real estate professionals and if they are anything like him, you will be in excellent hands. Thank you Jimmy!

Jimmy Janevski did an excellent job in helping me find a condo to buy and in helping me to sell the condo I owned.

The most notable quality was Jimmy's responsiveness. He always returned calls w/in minutes. This really helped to minimize the anxiety and stress that buyers and sellers experience. And he was always on time for appointments and encouraged us to take our time when looking at a place. He never rushed us or was impatient. Jimmy also knew the market, the Oak Lawn market in particular. I knew I could trust his judgment about prices. Jimmy reminded me several times that he was working for me and wanted me to be happy. His actions backed up his words. And he did all of the above with a friendly and positive attitude. I will definitely recommend Jimmy to anyone I know who is buying or selling.
