We picked Bruce because of his experience in our building. We were extremely pleased with the job that Bruce did for us. He marketed the home extremely well. Virtual tour, description of the property, fliers in the mail and posted in the laundry room. All done very well, especially the virtual tour. Great use of technology. Consequently, we had a ton of showings, even in a very slow market.
Bruce is professional, has all the right answers, knows the business, is easy to work with, and is a really nice guy. You will not regret choosing Bruce to sell your home.

I want to thank you for taking care of our property in Chicago. I met our new tenant on the phone yesterday and she sounds like a wonderful person.
It is amazing the difference between professionals in Chicago and the realty estate professions in Florida. I am grateful for all that you do.
Bruce will get the job done! Fast, good advice, and listens to your needs. Very satsified.
Thank you for being such a great landlord. I will always refer you to anyone I know - you're that good.
I was very satisfied with all aspects of your work. You were very prompt in returning my phone calls. You did a great job with the color brochures on my condo. You set the stage for a smooth closing. I would recommend you to anyone. Thank you.
You identified my needs very quickly. You were available to show and schedule appointments flexibly. Very kind service.
Bruce was wonderful. He was always available and returned calls promptly. I felt like you genuinely cared about the purchase of my home. He worked out all of the details for me and was by my side every step of the way. As a single girl buying my first home, I needed a lot of assistance. He was always calm and professional when I was freaking out and he took care of all the problems I encountered. I really appreciated him going above and beyond for me. I will recommend you to everyone I know!
I just wanted to thank you once again for the great job you did for me yesterday. I greatly appreciated what you did to make the deal work out. I don’’t think you really know how much you helped me out. I’’ll continue to refer you as always, and I just wanted you to know that I consider you the utmost professional, as well as a great friend.
Bruce knew how to market my unit. He networked to sell my condo in 6 days. He knew the fair market value of my property, and his communication was good.
Thanks again for your help in marketing. You have beyond the call of duty. We are blessed to have such a good friend as you.
Bruce explained the whole buying and selling process to me so I knew what to expect. He kept me informed and up to date on everything and always returned my calls promptly. Bruce gave me recommendations on who to call to get certain things done.
It was a pleasure meeting you. I appreciate your taking the time to meet with me and inspect the property. Your response time is phenomenal. Thanks for your for your time.
Thanks a ton. You are the best. I have not met anyone else in your line of business who is using technology as much as you do.
You have gone above and beyond in helping me look for a new home.
You always provided me with information promptly and gave honest answers.
You are a true professional!
Your real estate salesperson, Bruce Theobald, contributed greatly in ensuring an uncomplicated and enjoyable closing. In my many years of practicing law which encompasses thousands of real estate transactions, he stands out as one of the best real estate agents I have encountered. You would do a great service by referring friends, family and associates in the market of buying or selling a home to Bruce and his team.
Bruce was very responsive to my needs and inquiries. He was very flexible and willing to meet buyer prospects at any time or day.
Very fast response times and professionalism. Bruce and his staff are extremely attentive and informative. They made the experience very positive.
We needed to sell our place fast. Bruce and his team exceeded all of our expectations. Thanks to Bruce we were able to sell our place in the time frame we were hoping for and at the price we wanted.
We want to tell you again what a pleasure it has been leasing from you and living in this beautiful unit. We will surely miss it.

Thank you for your excellent response, flawless work and expert advise. Your assistance through this process is greatly appreciated! You all are more than worthy of any referrals I can send you in the future.
Thank you for a great seven years!
Thank you for all of your hard work and efforts! You have a hard job. I appreciate your patience and attention to detail!
Dear Bruce and Kent,
I need to send you both a huge Thank You, for all of your hard work, patience and diligence in selling my mother's downtown condo. You've both worked so hard- Kent, for all your trips back and forth and driving my mother to her destinations and helping her sort and pack thirty years worth of accumulation! Bruce, in keeping me informed of every step of the process and including me on all emails, and calming me down with your experience and knowledge! I so appreciate your attention to detail and inclusion, which is of utmost importance to me. Basically you both made the sale and transition such a seamless transition for us. I doubt we would have had such an easy and profitable experience with anyone else. Your patience, kindness, attention to detail, willingness to help and your generosity of time made it so much better for my mother to move. I honestly don't think I would have gotten her out of the condo at all without all your help! You've both shown us nothing but respect, even when you're both asked the same questions over and over. Again, thank you for all you've done for us. I can finally stop worrying about my almost ninety year old mother. She is finally in a safe environment and I have you both to thank!
I will be more than happy to recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell. It was a great experience for us and would be for anyone else as well.
Thanks for all Bruce - Laura and her husband had nothing but great things to say about you! Should I ever have another referral I'll be happy to send your way! Thanks again.
Bruce was my landlord for over 2 years, then he was my agent when I bought my condo about 4 years ago, my agent when I listed it for rent 2 years ago and again my agent when I sold my condo this month. He has been incredibly fair, helpful, thorough and honest throughout. He is knowledgable, helpful and went above and beyond in helping me, most recently, with my sale. I'm no longer local to Chicago and there were a number of small things he did, checking on the property, helping and advising me on an insurance claim I had to file due to water damage, referring me to an excellent and affordable contractor, pushing through a failed sale due to failed loan underwriting, to ultimately closing the sale with a new cash buyer. He was helpful and positive throughout every painstaking step of the way. I trust Bruce to provide honest and thorough advice on just about any matter related to real estate within his geographical area of expertise. Also worth mentioning, when I listed my condo for rent two years ago, he had it rented in less than 1 week at full price to an A+ tenant. My husband and I plan on utilizing Bruce when we move back to the area and I'd highly recommend him to anyone in need of a good agent.
Bruce is an extremely professional and helpful landlord. He came highly recommended by my friend who currently rents one of his other units, and I've had nothing but a wonderful experience renting one of his other studio units. He is very responsive and very attentive to any question/request I may have. He's very friendly and I really appreciated his walk-through of the lease and all related documents prior to my move-in

Bruce was very helpful in helping my boyfriend and I find our first place in downtown Chicago. He provided great insight, and we ended up choosing a place that he himself rents out. As a landlord, whenever there was an issue, Bruce was very responsive and flexible. I would definitely recommend him for your real estate needs.
I rented a studio apartment from Bruce in Lincoln Park for 3 years. He was a fantastic landlord. He was always quick to respond with any requests that I had and kept the apartment is great shape. I would highly recommend his apartments and services to any renter.
I have known Bruce socially since 1978, but this was the first opportunity I had to work with him professionally. Both my parent had passed and I had a home to sell.
Bruce sent me descriptions of some comparable homes in the area and I expected to meet for lunch and be on my way. To my surprise, we spent the 4 to 5 hours driving around the neighborhoods to inspect approximately 20 homes; either recently sold or currently on the market. Very, very thorough.
That dedication continued throughout the process. Bruce kept me up to date on the numerous open houses he held and also on the housing activity, (listings, sales, price changes, etc.), in the surrounding area
Bruce worked diligently to sell our home always going the extra mile. Making suggestions to help us through the journey. His knowledge of all aspects of real estate came in handy as he did extensive research to aid in potential buyer requests.
He opened up doors we had not thought of and got us to the closing table.
I would highly recommend you using Bruce for your real estate needs.
Bruce was one of the best landlords I have ever come across. The unit he rented for two and a half years was immaculate and hardly had any issues. If I ever needed Bruce he was extremely responsive and took care of everything immediately. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Chicago market and helped me look for my own place! Overall he is a great guy and a great Real Estate Professional.
Bruce was a phenomenal landlord! He was incredibly responsive, and really helpful throughout my whole 2+ years of living in his unit. I hope to search for a home after my next rental, and Bruce will be my first choice of realtors to work with.
I highly recommend Bruce for any of your real estate needs. He is very knowledgeable on Lincoln Park/ Old Town condos. Bruce is very good about listening to your concerns and taking them into account during the process. Communication was very easy and every question was answered very quickly. Despite Bruce's busy schedule, he makes you feel like you are his only client, never rushes you and even leaves enough time for a joke or two. If you are looking for a stress free renting/ home buying experience I highly recommend Bruce.
Bruce is so very knowledgeable about the Chicago area and the buildings that house the top condos in Lincoln Park, Old Town, the Magnificent Mile area, River North and the Gold Coast area too! I'm sure he knows much more but my condo is in Old Town and Bruce helped me rent my beautiful 1 bedroom (during a slower rental time) very quickly! He's very responsive and very provides very meaningful feedback. I'd recommend him to anyone who is looking for a top and very knowledgeable agent to rent or sell their prized Chicago home!
I would recommend Bruce Theobald to anyone buying or selling a home. He is professional, knowledgeable, incredibly patient, and keeps you informed of every step of the process. He is a true pleasure to work with!
