Rakesh Parikh

License #:

I have been in real estate for over 30 years as an investor, broker and property manager. I come from a family that owned and operated 1200 rental properties in the western suburbs. As kids, we were involved in every aspect from maintenance and repair to tenant screening and disposition. Through investments and management, we were able to build wealth in real estate. I use that same approach when dealing with an acquisition for a client or myself. 

"Rakesh helped so much with buying our first home. Not only did he help us to search in the neighborhood we thought we wanted, he helped us to find houses in other areas when we couldn't find what we were looking for. He also had so much good information about neighborhood attractions which helped us make our decision. He also had a lot of good information about the houses themselves, taking care to point out potential issues in certain homes to us. His deep knowledge about structural issues helped us avoid homes that would have ended up costing us more later. When it come time for the offer, he explained everything to us clearly. The process went smoothly, and we were able to get the house under asking and under budget! The process felt like it took so long, but Rakesh made the whole thing a blast. I can't recommend him more because he made the whole process easy to understand. It always felt like we were working together to find the not just any house, but right house for me. "

"Rakesh is absolutely top notch. And I would not say that about any other realtor I have worked with. What impressed me most was throughout the entire process, he always and without fail kept my interests at the fore, as opposed to agents who reach a point where they just want to close and make the commission. This is critical in the home purchase process - it is your home, you want to feel safe and know that everything has been checked and double checked, and you want to feel completely unafraid that unexpected problems might pop up that could have been prevented before close. And this is where Rakesh truly shines. He's an excellent and timely communicator, he made the process fun but was completely professional, and he knows how to deal gracefully and kindly with other agents while minimizing your worries and stress. He also sent me to the best real estate attorney I've ever seen... a treasure. If you want an agent that is truly on your side, he's it. Happy to discuss."

"Rakesh is an outstanding realtor. His knowledge of the local markets and his extensive list of contacts is the perfect combination to help you buy or sell a property anywhere in the Chicagoland area. He has the unique ability to move between a multi-million dollar deal to a 20k rehab investment property in the same day. Rakesh helped my wife and I sell a particularly complicated investment property by leveraging his marketing skills and substantial list of local investors and former clients. His guidance and advice helped to create opportunities we did not even consider so we could quickly close the deal. We are 100% satisfied with his services and we always felt like our deal was his #1 priority. To say we highly recommend Rakesh is an understatement. If you want to buy or sell CALL HIM!! "
