Steve went above and beyond his role as realtor, answering my numerous questions about houses and homeownership in detail. As a local homeowner, he made me feel very welcome moving to this new neighborhood.

Steve was super helpful and awesome.  He did a great job choosing properties for us to view, and once we decided on one he was completely on point with giving us all the necessary paperwork.  Great communicator as well - never took more than half a day to respond to any emails in my experience.

Steve can recommended to us via a family friend.  He proved very knowledgeable of the area, the schools and the market, all of which we were concerned about.  He was patient with us as we proceeded through our search and was very responsive to our last minute requests to set up showings.  Within 60 days, we found the house we love and purchased, and I would highly recommend Steve in the future.

Steve was helpful and responsive.  He set up appointments on short notice, listened carefully to what we said and fine-tuned our search to help us identify priorities.  We found an amazing house and couldn't be happier!

Here's our B&W story. We moved back to Chicago after spending 8 years in Florida. The first order of business was to find a home. One thing we learned from our friends is that they all can recommend an agent. Everyone said, "You got to use my guy. He's the best." So it was kind of overwhelming to interview the best 7 agents in Chicago. My wife somehow started searching your app and finding good listings. The app is really easy to navigate. Turns out, she downloaded it off of Pandora. That whittled the 7 best agents in Chicago to the one that worked for the app, Steve Hellig. He was a great fit for us; accessible, gracious, and knowledgeable.  We were able to find a fantastic home quickly through Steve's diligence and research at night. Steve was very thorough and always took time to show my wife the latest listings. His knowledge helped us move along the process. Our home search ended 2 months after we started. Way shorter than I anticipated. The home buying process was actually a pleasant experience. As our family grows, B&W will be with us. On a side note, now when my Wife hears B&W on Pandora she screams "Our house is playing!" That always makes me laugh. Big thanks to everyone at B&W. Awesome service.

Superior service all the way around but especially with my agent Steve. Couldn't be happier and house sold in about 10 days! Great experience. Thank you to all!

The entire process was highly satisfactory.  We would use Steve Heilig again if needed and would certainly recommend him to others.

Steve Heilig was very helpful and patient throughout the entire process.  He was always prompt, available to answer all my questions and explain all the finer points of the transaction in a simple language which I could understand.  I would highly recommend him to all my friends.

"Thank you for everything you did in  selling my place. I know that your follow-up with the lender made the closing date possible. You are definitely on the top of my list to recommend if someone I know is selling or buying." - Pam

"Steve was highly organized and prompt in responding to my calls. He not only was helpful to me in buying a home, but made me feel calm and confident with my purchase. I appreciate all his help and advice." - Amanda

"Very professionally handled... couldn't have asked for more. We couldn't think of any more ways Steve could have marketed our home. Even after the closing we had to ask him for a favor and he still did a great job. We're glad we called him and asked him to work for us in marketing our home." - Arnie & Jun

"Steve was always extremely prompt and fit his schedule around mine to view homes quickly. I will not hesitate to recommend Steve to others." - Dave

"Steve Heilig immediately assessed our situation, determined a strategy and began successfully marketing our home. Steve is simply the most outstanding Realtor we have ever met. His marketing strategy is unmatched." - Jim & Sandy
