Relocating to Chicago from across the country meant I needed someone I could count on to handle things even when I couldn't be there. I was also working with a tiny budget. When I explained all that to other agents, they wouldn't return my calls, but Rich Harty did, and he was amazing. He not only worked diligently to find the perfect property 4 me, but also got the price down to one I could afford. He kept in close contact by phone, fax, email, texts, and pictures, so I always knew what was going on, and could handle most of the process remotely. He skillfully guided me through the selection and purchase of my house, and his construction background proved a real asset, especially on my budget. Rich clearly loves his work, and has a great, easy going personality. Dealing with him was a pleasure, and kept the stress of buying a house to a minimum. He treated me like a million dollar client, even though I was only buying a modest house. I will always be grateful to Rich Harty for his help in getting my home, and I'd never consider buying a house in this area without him. If you need an agent to help with the purchase of a home in the Chicagoland area, I strongly recommend the Harty Realty Group, Rich does not disappoint.
