I have worked with Niko and his team for the past 15 years on multiple transactions - both purchases and sales. As a seller's agent, I have found that he is uniquely capable of offering suggestions for those special touches that effectively add value for sellers. He also offers great, effective advice for organizing the sale process which has consistently demonstrated effective results and exceeded expectations. As a buyer's agent, he is excellent in organizing the search process (as many agents are), but he is also very understanding and cares enough to spend the time to support his clients - both in helping seasoned buyers and especially in assisting first-time homeowners. He is well-recognized in Chicago, knows the neighborhoods, and is a pleasure to spend time with. 10/10!
I have known Niko for 30+ years so when it came time to sell my condo and buy my first home, then sell that home and buy a new one, working with him was a no-brainer. His team is, was, and always will be highly efficient, professional, incredibly hard-working, and beyond easy to work with. Niko and his team seem to be able to take on all of the stress that goes with these major life transactions and it makes the process so much better. I worked closely with Elise Shell recently and she is amazing and a huge asset to the team. In addition, Niko's knowledge and passion for real estate, especially in the city of Chicago, is unparalleled. I highly recommend NiKo Collaborative and will hopefully get to work with them again!
We love working with Niko and his team! He has helped us both purchase and sell our Chicago home of five years, as well as sell another rental property in the area. We decided to sell our home during the coronavirus pandemic, which felt risky, but his team generated a lot of interest that eventually led to a good offer. Even though we experienced a bit of a bumpy process due to issues on the side of the buyer, Niko navigated everything brilliantly to maintain the original offer. Niko is incredibly kind, communicative, and enthusiastic. He's been of tremendous help over the years, we trust him completely and wouldn't work with anyone else in the Chicago area!
I really can't say enough good things about Niko and his team. Niko's attention to detail, care, and understanding spoke volumes. We were selling our childhood home after 50+ years so it was bittersweet and emotional. Niko listened and supported us every step of the way. His team took care of everything we needed and made the process easy and stress-free. Niko knows the city, he knows the neighborhoods, he's considerate and kind but he also knows how to get the job done. We received multiple bids on the house which would make our parents happy. If you're looking for an agent in Chicago, Niko is the guy.
Our team uses a collaborative approach to add perspective and value in real estate transactions. We focus on the full scope and implications of our clients’ personal situation by asking deeper questions, leveraging generations of experience, and utilizing a vast network of additional resources.
