Lee was a great asset in the selling of our home.

I met Lee a month or so ago.

True blue! If I list a house - or, know someone who is going to - I'M GOING TO SUGGEST LEE. The guy helped me out for about 20 minutes on the phone and he knew I already had my house listed elsewhere. He didn't mind helping me. That "tells" me - he has a servan’’s heart. I see him investing in the neighborhood - and simply just is a part of things. Good person. I like people who are willing to "bend" and be truthful. That's about all one can ask for. He's both. For sure.

We contacted Lee early this year, after an unsuccessful attempt with a different broker.

He spent a lot of time with us, giving us many ideas for better marketing our home. After listing our home with Lee, things started moving right away. Because we lived out of the area, he took it upon himself to implement some of the ideas. He always responded to our calls and messages promptly. Lee is a down to earth person and a true professional. We HIGHLY recommend him- Bernie & Judy Pacanowski 4/29/2015

My wife and I were moving out of state for work and need to put our house on the market.

Lee Ernst's knowledge and expertise in the real estate market helped get our house sold in a short amount of time even in these tough economic times. We received weekly updates on what was going on with the house and when the house was being shown. Once we received an offer, Lee made the whole selling experience easy. Lee was always available to talk with us when we had questions. He made sure that we got the best possible deal for our home. If you are looking for a honest, hard working, positive real estate agent that will make sure you get the best deal possible I would highly recommend Lee Ernst.

This man is the best realtor in my area.

He will go above and beyond to help you sell your home. He's a straight shooter and knows many people to help remodel the house. His team is rock solid and knows what they are doing. Our family liked his work ethic so much, she used him to purchase a house. Having the right realtor means making a partner for life. I will be forever grateful of Lee and his staff for the time and work they put into selling and helping me purchase a new home. I will be using him for any future home sales.

Lee is a great listener and a true professional

Lee is a true professional!

It's rare to find an agent that not only has expert knowledge of the local market, but also genuinely cares for the best interest of each of his buyers, renters and clients. I have worked with quite a few agents in the Western Suburbs and none have been as reliable, hard-working and dedicated as Lee.

12/17/2014 - dnagelbach1

Lee was my second realtor and I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me sell the house.

He's very motivated and upfront with any suggestions. I always felt very comfortable talking to Lee during this process as a first time seller and buyer.

Lee is by far the best realtor I have ever worked with.

Professional, efficient and reliable. He promptly responded to all of our questions, looking out for our interests at all times. We listed our home with Lee, and he sold it in 4 days!!! How good is that?? We could not have been happier. If you are looking to sell your home, then Lee is your man.

Lee has been the best agent I could ever imagine.

I was looking for a place with extensive time constrains and had no idea about the whole process which I know is cumbersome. Being an online savvy shopper for years; I thought of finding a place online first and then think about the whole process. Zillow was my first choice to look for a place, I did compare Trulia as well. Saw some properties I liked and sent emails to the listing agents. Three of them responded including Lee. One of them called me before Lee so I did talk to that agent and arranged to meet with him to see the property. At the scheduled meeting time the agent called me and said he cannot find the keys for the property and will have to reschedule. I was upset but not that much because it was on a weekend but now after going through the whole process I realized that they don't have the keys to the property in their offices to begin with and that agent was lying to me. Lee on the other hand called me the very day I had sent an inquiry and met me the very same day. He explained to me the whole process and found me the Bank, a Lawyer, and everyone else that you would need to close on a property. It took exactly four weeks from the day I started the process to closing. He was there at the closing and after that he helped me in getting things fixed. I can assure you there's no one better than Lee who could give you the sort of comfort you would need making a stressful decision of buying a house. I highly recommend him.

Lee was very professional when my wife and I were searching for a home.

He did a great job of educating us on multiple different neighborhoods and helped us through buying a short sale. He is a valuable asset to anyone looking to purchase a new home.

Ernst handled the sale of my mother's home and adjacent lot. He was very proactive in finding potential buyers, especially for the lot. He was a source of expertise throughout the selling process. He helped us through the closing and identified the resources we needed to do the sale remotely. We highly recommend him. You could not find a better, more knowledgeable, hard-working realtor than him.

After an unsuccessful attempt with a different broker, we listed our home with Lee and things started moving right away.

He gave us great ideas for marketing our home, and even implemented some himself, since we were out of state during most of the sale period. Always responded to our calls and messages promptly, Lee is a true profession. We HIGHLY recommend him- Bernie and Judy P

Helped with items to help finish the sale, when I could not be present, he let workers into my home. Sold my home in 3 days for full-price offer. Highly recommend him.

Lee took it on himself to take care of minor decisions to speed up the sale He looked for and showed the house to people he felt would be suitable.

He did not just show the house so it looked good on paper.

05/04/2015 - bpberndog

Very pleasant experience working with Lee.

It took a bit to have my house sold, but at last it is sold. Lee was instrumental in helping me getting the improvements needed to list. Because I'm not around most of the time, Lee also took upon himself to check on the house and keep me updated. Big thank you, Lee! Absolutely the Realtor I would like to work with again.

I thought Lee was very helpful and knowledgeable.

I had to find a house in a short time and Lee made it less stressful, even with my son along. He was able to give me references for movers, which was a big help.

We met Lee while investment house shopping and have used him for all of our real estate needs such as finding renters for our rental property, finding investment properties and have recommended him to family members which used him also.

I have also called him seeking advice on rules in the rental market. He is very knowledgeable in the field!

Lee was a great real estate agent!

he is currently helping my mom sell her house as well. His availability is great and always fun and professional. I used real estate agents before that were not as engaging as Lee. He knew exactly what we were looking for and did a great job in the whole process. I highly recommend Lee if you are looking to buy or sell your home. Top notch!

Attorney Lawrence Lobb

Lee is a very knowledgeable realtor who helped us sell our home very quickly.

On our first meeting he was totally open to our ideas to sell the house. He wasn't overbearing or pushy which we really appreciated. Lee sold our house in TWO DAYS. He then accompanied us to a builder in the Shorewood area so we could build our dream. We are very grateful to Lee for everything he helped us with. I would recommend Lee without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Lee went above and beyond the call to help us find the right home.

A home which met our extensive list of wants and needs. Lee must have shown us 20 houses, not the normal 4-5 and which of those work best. He researched homes, showed us many and helped us find that right one. Great guy, highly recommend!

Lee was fantastic.

His easy going style made it easy to work with him. He guided us through the process getting an excellent price for our house. From listing to signed contract took only three days. Our buyer was very demanding and Lee did a great job of running interference. Since we were moving out of state, Lee handled the last minute issues up to closing.

Ernst is the best professional I've ever dealt with. His expertise in real estate matters is matched by his enthusiasm and positive demeanor.

Lee was fantastic in helping us purchase our first home.

Obviously, we needed a lot of help with understanding the home purchasing process since we were first time buyers. He provided his expert input for our initial offer being accepted. He was incredibly professional in helping us facilitate the inspection process. He eased us into what is expected from the mortgage application process. And he helped guide us to the closing date by keeping us on course to meet all of our deadlines. Lee was there for us when we needed him and I would highly recommend Lee for all of our friends and family who will be buying their homes in the future.

12/05/2017 - liketheblueballoon

Could not have done it without him.

No one else could have handled it. He took a lot of time and effort to find the right home for me. It took several tries but we finally managed to do it.

Highly Recommend! Lee is experienced and highly knowledgable about the Lisle / DuPage area as well as market trends. My husband and I chose Lee as our selling agent for our home in Lisle because he was local and came highly recommended in the area. He goes above and beyond to make sure everything goes smoothly. Lee was always there for us when we had a question or needed a local recommendation for a contractor. He was very responsive, friendly, and helpful. If you need a real pro See Lee!

Lee was amazing to work with and I would highly recommend him.

He knows how to listen and worked well with us and our issues. As a result, we had our home sold for list price in the first week and he helped us smooth out issues with the inspection and communicated well right up to closing. This IS your guy. Five stars across the board!

11/11/2017 - Rmarker22

Lee helped us purchase a few rental homes and subsequently found renters for us.

He went out of his way to research the area and kept his eye on properties as they became available. He knew our parameters and continued to look for and send us suggestions of properties that would meet those parameters. One we purchased he had suggestions for mortgage brokers, home inspectors, attorney's, and contractors we used to improve the home. All his suggestions worked out great and saved us a lot of time and legwork. Highly recommend this agent. He is highly motivated and will work for you.

12/17/2014 - lwylly
