From J. Paul Beitler,
President of Beitler Real Estate Corporation:
I have had the opportunity of working with Howard Mandel in searches for residential properties to acquire for both personal and investment uses. I have been very impressed with his level of energy and his desire to think outside of the box. Opportunities that I would have easily passed by were presented to me in such a manner that upon visiting them I gained an entirely new perspective.
Howard thinks and acts like an owner not like an agent. And therein lies the most significant difference in working with him.
Are there other residential brokers with more years of experience and who have sold more properties? The answer is yes. Are they more successful than Howard Mandel? The answer is — not in my experience.
I wouldn’t hesitate for one minute to recommend Howard Mandel when it comes to residential and commercial property searches on the north shore of Chicago.

From an Esteemed Coldwell Banker Colleague:
I would like to take this opportunity to commend you on how professionally you have handled the marketing, the showing and the prompt responsiveness of 2501 Kenilworth.
I have been with Coldwell Banker North for 21 years and have had extensive experience with accompanied showing. You possess the ability to convey the essential information and step back to allow the clients and their agent to digest this information and formulate questions that you were prepared to answer. I greatly appreciate having the opportunity to work with you and look forward to the future.
I would feel very comfortable referring a Highland Park client since I do not know the community as well as I should to sell in your community. Best of luck!

From a North Shore Home Seller:
The pictures you took of my home are VERY impressive! The house looks GREAT! I am thinking we could use these for an architectural digest-type magazine article.Thanks for sending them to us. We really enjoyed them.

From Start to Finish:
In March, 2008, I was going through a very difficult time with a divorce and needed to find a home to rent—yesterday! I had the excellent fortune of contacting Howard Mandel with Coldwell Banker, who was the REALTOR® on one of the properties that I wanted to look at.
I had some strict criteria as I have two dogs that needed a large, fenced-in back yard and some security features. In a three day period, Howard had taken me to see three different houses, taken my mother and myself back to look at one of the three again and had a contract signed by the owner. I moved in on the THIRD day!
Howard helped me from start to finish, made exhausting phone call after phone call, arranging for the terms of the rental and was even kind enough to call me after I had moved in to make sure I was feeling safe in my new home. I would recommend Howard Mandel to anyone needing a REALTOR® as he is a kind and REAL person and understands his clients needs to a T!

From a Home Buyer in Highland Park:
Howard provided us with a consistently superior level of professional real estate service in locating and closing on a home for our daughter in Highland Park. He provided us with an array of homes in our budget range, including some homes that had not yet been put on the market. We contracted for a home with a time-sensitive buyer incentive, and his prompt, thorough attention to detail enabled is to close on time and take advantage of the $2,500 credit. We highly recommend Howard Mandel.

From Home Sellers on the North Shore:
You saved our sale! We were so disappointed when our buyers walked away at the very last moment they could. But within hours, you were able to put another deal on the table—and at $20,000 more than the original deal.
You’re a phenomenal negotiator, and when we needed you the most, you came through with flying colors. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
– Jeff & Shannon S.
A ‘Golden’ Reputation:
Your guidance was outstanding. And the list of qualified contractors that you recommend is first rate. A real estate broker puts his reputation on the line when he refers a contractor, and as far as we’re concerned, your reputation is “golden”. Thank you for all you did.
– Jack & Olga M.
From a First-Time Homebuyer on the North Shore:
Being a first time home buyer in a city I wasn’t all that familiar with was scary. But you educated me on all of the necessary intricacies of home buying, and you found me a great home in record breaking time; something I really needed to accomplish. That was a lot of fun!!!
– Nate B.
From a Home Buyer on the North Shore:
You not only found me a great home, you’ve become a good friend. And from one technology junkie to another, you really know you stuff. Thanks!!!
– Tom P.
From a Home Seller on the North Shore:
I didn’t think multiple offers could be found in today’s “buyers market”. But just like you said in your listing presentation, if the house is marketed properly, you’ll be surprised how many buyers are out there waiting for the right home to come along.
– Rick M.
Sold in 3 Weeks at Full List Price:
Spectacular results! Your “energy pricing” technique worked like a charm. We never thought we’d sell this home in 3 weeks, let alone at full list. Thank you for showing us how.
– Barbara & Robert L.
Sold in 6 Days!
You sold our house in only 6 days! People told us this was a hard market to sell a house in, but you told us that if we followed your “plan”, we could be out in no time. You’re incredible!
– Larry M.
