We recently bought our first house having Claudio as our real estate agent. Claudio was very patient with us even after we've seen several houses that didn't work out, he made the whole process extremely smooth by being on our side anytime we had any questions or concerns, answering the phone calls and proving valuable insight. But what we appreciated the most was his honesty. We will strongly recommend you to all our friends. Excellent job Claudio!
I'm a real estate attorney, and I recently had a deal where Claudio represented the buyer as her agent. Claudio was involved and knowledgeable from the beginning. Our deal posed a few hurdles as our buyer was out of the country for most of the transaction, and Claudio remained responsible and timely throughout the whole process to keep the transaction running smoothly. I would highly recommend Claudio's services to anyone buying or selling their home.
In every step of the apartment finding process, Raluca was there and went above and beyond in our search. The entirety of the service, from the first email to handing the keys, was filled with nothing but quick responses, helpful suggestions, and friendly service. Despite not being from the area, Raluca navigated us through the process and helped us find a place within budget.The entire experience was truly exceptional, Raluca was incredibly helpful and honest about the apartments we were interested in. I am beyond satisfied with the service and help from Raluca.
Raluca was amazing. My roommate and I moved to the city from out of state and she found us an apartment within a week and even facetimed us as she toured the different options. Responded to all our questions, call, and emails very fast as well as checking in after we had moved in. 100% would recommend.
Claudio is the best! Period!I have his help on finding a rental in the summer, which is like the hottest time for Chicago area, to make it more difficult, I'm frequent traveler who's not in the area most of the time. However, Claudio has his magic!!! He went through all the listings, made appointments with them back to back, and within 4 hours of efforts, I found my perfect dream place!!One thing I particularly liked about Claudio is he's very honest, he shares his true opinions about places.He didn't just promote places he has shown me, he actually tells me in details what he likes, what he concerns about the place, so I can have a second and expert opinion when I make decisions.
After weeks of frustrating searches on online apartment finders we were recommended to work with a realtor to find an apartment. We came across Claudio from Varo Real Estate and decided to give it a try. He drove us to six different apartments and told us all about them completely free of charge. We ended up choosing an apartment he showed us. Then he helped us a lot through the application process since we were all new to the post-college apartment search. Great company I would highly recommend using them rather than searching for an apartment online by yourself.
My fiance and I were looking to find a new apartment together this Spring, and were referred to Claudio. We could not have found a better agent. He responded promptly to all our inquiries, found numerous apartments that met all of our criteria, and was a huge help in processing our application and coordinating with the renter's agent when we found our new home. If you are looking to rent in Chicago, don't look any farther than Claudio.
Raluca was referred to me by a friend and I am happy to have reached out to her! She helped my roommate and I find a great apartment within a short amount of notice. She managed to help us visit a couple of apartments we had liked. She was very flexible in meeting with us and was very kind to drop off our deposit and pick up our keys, since we had already started working full-time and didn't have time to do so. I highly recommend her, very helpful!
Moving to Chicago from Sydney, Australia was in itself a daunting challenge. Whilst my company support with temporary accommodation, I had a few weeks to find and move into a new apartment.From the first interactions with Claudio, he appeased my concerns that there will be a property that would be suitable for me. I had the opportunity to review all my options before even leaving Australia. He had sound knowledge and insight to not only the Chicago property section but any questions I had on renting in a new country.One action packed Saturday afternoon later (assisted by his wonderful business partner and wife) and I will be moving into my new rental apartment early next week! One huge stress completely off my shoulders.I would recommend Claudio Varo whole heartedly to anyone that is looking for property - renting or buying!
Claudio could not have been any better during our apartment search. From beginning to very end he was extremely attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful. He listened to exactly what we wanted and delivered many great apartment options. Through conversations it is easy to tell how insightful he is in real estate and how much he cares for both the business and his customers. He was extremely efficient with all of his interactions with us and very quick to schedule apartment viewings when we found ones of interest. Even after signing our lease he made sure to follow up to make sure we were happy and offer assistance with any issues we were facing.I would without a doubt recommend Claudio to assist with any home/apartment rentals and purchases (and already have!) and definitely plan to work with him further in the future!
Claudio is as good as it gets when it comes to dealing with residential real estate transactions in Chicago. My situation was not a typical one; I am actually a former Chicago resident and had to sell two income properties in the city while I was out of town, and Claudio was able to handle both transactions with ease. The properties were tenant occupied and I needed to close both within 30 days with cash buyer(s) only.Claudio gladly took on the task was able to exceed all my expectations. Communicative, trustworthy, and detail oriented, he always executes on his promises and strives to deliver his best work for his clients. Claudio consistently kept me posted on the latest information on my deals and was always reachable with a quick response time. If you want someone who can work on your transactions with ease and tackle any challenges for a smooth closing, please do not hesitate to reach out to Varo Real Estate.
Very helpful and attentive to our concerns and questions. Raluca was very nice and helpful when my roommate and I were looking for apartments. I recommend it.
This review is long overdue. I was in search of apartments around the August-September timeframe. If you know anything about Chicago this is the busiest time of the year and toughest to find an apartment. I reached out to several apartment agents to assist me with my search. I had no luck, no one called me back or wasn't quick to respond to my messages. I decided to search for assistance and with the help of Yelp that's when I saw all of the great reviews for Varo Real Estate. I decided to take my chances and reach out to the agency.I left a message and the very next day a gentleman by the name of Claudio called me. He was very pleasant and listened to all of my needs "wish list" of everything I wanted in an apartment. Claudio would then send me listings everyday of all of the apartment listings according to my criteria (price range, location).The apartment listings that Claudio found were great but he thought it maybe best to come into his office, meet, and view the apartments together. That way he could fully understand my needs. This was a great idea! That day we went through over 90+ apartments and we narrowed down the list of places I wanted to see in person.We ended up looking at three apartments and I found the apartment for me. Claudio made sure from start to finish that the lease looked good, he called me and walked through the lease before I signed it, he talked with the apartment agency about getting my keys to me in time, and list of other things( the list goes on but for sake of space)I have never been more pleased with the service that Claudio provided. He went above and beyond to make sure I had the apartment of my dreams and made sure that the apartment rental agency provided me with everything that I needed before moving in.I will definitely be using Varo Real Estate for my next move whether that be an apartment or house.This is one of the best if not the BEST real estate agents in Chicago. Thanks again Claudio!!!
Claudio's impeccable service level throughout the process of securing a rental home in the Chicago area while living out of state was invaluable. He took care of every detail while thoroughly communicating and responding in a very timely manner. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Claudio Varo is a fiercely loyal, hardworking and professional real-estate broker who genuinely cares about finding you a new home. I was referred his way after moving here from Boston and it was clear from the beginning that he was a Real-Estate Super Hero. He sent me listings that matched up with what I was looking for every single day and was super flexible to meet for showings. On top of all this he was able to educate me on the nature of the market here in Chicago. He will work really hard to help you and is really good at what he does. He made finding a new place (which sucks!) a pleasant experience. I made this profile (on Yelp) just to give him a great recommendation. Claudio Rocks!
I've been working with Claudio over the past couple years, and he has been absolutely wonderful to work with! He sends me quality properties, lots of different options, and is very timely with responding and scheduling showings. I've also referred Claudio to my friends, and he has been able to find great places for them too. I highly recommend working with Claudio for rentals or buying/selling!
I'm moving to Chicago for school and needed a decently priced apartment that's not too far from my school and the basic necessities. After being overwhelmed with the real estate options, I turned to a friend whom had moved to Chicago from my hometown. She gave me some helpful tips about areas of interest and what to avoid. But the best suggestion she gave me was to go through her realtor, Claudio Varo. She indicated that he was by far the best and, best of all, Free. Being a perpetual student and immersed in student loans, I couldn't turn it down.
Claudio is incredibly attentive and hardworking. I've never been more pleased by someone's work ethic and willingness to help regardless of the problem or situation. I filled out an application for a unit within a day (Of course, time was of the essence with school starting in mid-August). Overall, asking Claudio for help was one of the best decisions I've made.
I waited long enough to remove any stored emotions/thoughts from the whole process but even over two weeks after the whole process, I am still in awe of the service we received from Claudio.
I accidentally ran into Claudio through Lyft and found out Claudio is a full-time real estate broker. I had asked him to help me and my boyfriend find an apartment and he was on top of it! I have lived in the city for as long as I am an adult and usually have no problems finding an apartment through different channels... but it was different this time around. The market was so competitive and apartments were being taken even without actual showings! What I liked about Claudio is that his business values (integrity) truly aligned with mine - he was a true advocate for us and very honest from beginning to end. He essentially got us at least seven (7) showings in two business days and at least one application a day. We signed a lease and moved into our apartment in a span of a week and a half!
The apartment he found us fits us so well and met 98% of our criteria - that is rare as we usually have to make sacrifices when renting... it's almost as if I hired a very good friend to scout apartments for me.
When the time comes and I am ready to own, I will be going back to Claudio!
Claudio was a great person who provides excellent service. I was looking for an apartment for close to two months. He is easy to talk to and show you properties based on your preference. He was able to help me find my new apartment, and at the price with the amenities that I requested.
If i move again, I will use his service again. I recommend Claudio if you are looking to move or buy.
Claudio is by far the best real estate broker I have ever worked with. As someone who is new to Chicago and did not really know what to expect, he was extremely helpful in helping me find an apartment. My girlfriend and I were relocating to Chicago and had set up a few days in town to find a home. Claudio responded immediately to our inquiries, and after we told him what we were looking for, sent us new listings daily. When the time came to view the properties, he set up the viewings to show us the maximum number of apartments in our limited time.
What impressed us above all was that he truly seemed to have our best interests at heart. Each time we arrived at a new unit, Claudio offered us his honest opinion about the apartment, whether it was worth the asking price and whether it seemed like a good fit for us. Claudio took it upon himself to ask the listing agents and landlords questions that we would never have thought to ask. He was also extremely knowledgeable and was able to offer unique insights on the design and quality of each property we visited.
I have no reservations recommending Claudio to anyone who is looking to rent or buy property in the Chicago area.
I have been lucky enough to find real estate broker Claudio Varo through the Internet.
I signed a lease today for a rental apartment using his excellent knowledge and experience. For instance, in determining if a basement apartment had sustained flooding in the past. He could tell from the condition of the wood floors that there had been no water damage since the floor had been installed and could tell the floor had been present for quite some time.
Claudio was an advocate for me and my roommate and was invaluable in locating a prime rental property in my price range. He was thorough in making sure the lease was correct, he found a mistake that was very important and made sure it was corrected.
Claudio is knowledgable, experienced responsive, and in my opinion, highly ethical.
No questions asked... The best realtor in Chicago! Throughout the apartment hunting process Claudio was genuinely concerned with my needs. He was honest when I was looking for something unrealistic and made sure I had all the information necessary to make decisions. I never felt pressured throughout the difficult process of finding an apartment in downtown Chicago. I had lots of requests and questions and Claudio made the process as easy as possible. He is very well versed in the neighborhoods and local amenities.
Honesty is the best policy and while it is often difficult to find someone willing to work endlessly until your needs are met, Claudio is your guy!
IF YOU ARE MOVING TO CHICAGO AND NEED TO FIND A PLACE TO RENT, CALL CLAUDIO!
I didn't even know realtors would help with rentals, but Claudio treated me like any other client. I also figured finding an apartment/rental in Chicago while I was living in Toronto was going to be a nightmare, but it absolutely was easy with Claudio.
I moved to Chicago from Toronto this past November and I had an excellent experience finding a rental apartment with Claudio (Varo Real Estate). I honestly did not know where to start, but from the beginning Claudio made the process convenient and comfortable. I called him after finding him online and right away he put my mind at ease. He asked me my budget and what specifically I was looking for in an apartment/condo. From that moment, he set me up to receive listings that met my criteria. I was able to see all sorts of options and rate them according to my level of interest.
I had to book some time to visit Chicago to see the rentals in person in order to finally pick one. Claudio was so flexible and willing to set aside time just for me, knowing that my time there would be limited. He booked a whole 3 days for me!! 100% of his time was dedicated to me and my search. It was incredible. He set up as many appointments as possible to see rentals that I liked around Chicago. He took me to different types of properties so I could get a real feel for what I truly wanted and where I wanted to live. He even picked me up from my hotel each day and drove me around to each viewing. Since I was from out of town, he took lots of time to share info about Chicago with me and highlighted all sorts of helpful things like driving rules, tourist attractions, and fun things to do.
I couldn't have imagined a better experience. i was honestly blown away. Finally, he was extremely helpful in helping me navigate apartment rentals as a foreign person. Without established credit or any kind of official history in the US, it's not always easy to rent apartments, but with Claudio's help, that wasn't an issue. I quickly found an apartment I love and in a location that I'm so happy with.
Working with Claudio was one of the best things that has happened to me throughout my relocation to Chicago. He is knowledgeable, respectful, and truly focused on your needs. I've worked with realtors before and haven't generally liked the experience or felt like I could trust them. I felt like Claudio was truly on my side and willing to do what was necessary to find the perfect rental for me. Thanks Claudio!!!
Me and my wife were desperate to find a place to rent and Claudio did everything he could to help us. He is honest, diligent and very professional. We recommend him to everyone. And when the time comes we will definitely choose Claudio to help us buy our house. Thank you Claudio!
We just closed on our new home and I must say working with Claudio was the best experience! We truly believe we wouldn't have been able to do it without him. The searching and closing process were made so much easier with Claudio guiding us every step of the way, helping us to make the right decisions.
Claudio is a hardworking, honest, and dedicated agent. We went on multiple viewings before we found our dream home, and Claudio made sure we saw everything we wanted to see. When we found our home he worked extremely hard to make sure we got the property. The sellers were a little difficult at times, but Claudio knew exactly how to navigate through the tough situations and I am happy he was on our team. He was also very helpful in recommending bankers and attorneys to us, as we did not have any in mind. The two individuals we ended up working with were also very helpful, organized, and dedicated to getting the necessary paperwork finalized.
We highly recommend working with Claudio as your agent! We can't stress enough how important it is to have an agent who knows what he is doing and can help find and close on the property you want. We look forward to working with him again in the future and would recommend him to anyone that is looking to buy, rent, or sell.
Thanks Claudio! We love our new home, and could not have done it without you!
If you're even thinking about moving, before you start the search on your own, you should give Claudio a call. He helped my boyfriend and I find the perfect apartment for us within a full week of knowing him. He asked me what were our wants and wishes in an apartment, and even though I gave him a long list, he managed to find a place with every single thing we wanted and under our budget! Claudio is so patient and genuine.I appreciated that he made sure to respond back to me as quickly as he could if I texted or emailed him. He's not a Realtor that pushes you to apply for the first thing you see just so he can receive the commission, he wants to make sure you are comfortable.
Claudio made our apartment search ten times easier and faster than it would have been if we did it by ourselves. I appreciate everything he did for us and will definitely be keeping his contact information if we ever need to rent again and especially when we are ready to purchase!
Claudio and his wife Raluca Varo were both very essential in helping, guiding, and ensuring that the apartment was right for us. Claudio is one of the few honest real estate brokers, and went beyond normal business hours to accommodate our schedule. Highly recommend!
Claudio went above and beyond in helping me find my first apartment in Chicago. Not only did he use his personal car to drive my dad and me to listings, he also gave us tours of the local neighborhoods and pointed out landmarks so I could get my newcomer bearings. When touring, he had background information on all the properties we saw including renovation information and inside intel. He stuck precisely to my budget and always responded within an hour or less to my emails- even on non-business days! I know that I'll definitely be using his services again in the future. I'll recommend all my househunting friends to Claudio!
To whom it may concern:
Mr. Claudio Varo was a real blessing in our apartment search. He stood by us for several months, sending listings and showing us many apartments. We were ready to give up and our deadline was days away - however, Mr. Varo showed no weakening of resolve or determination. Ultimately, his indomitable will and spirit prevailed. We found just what we were looking for - at a price we could afford.
Mr. Varo has a real attention to detail you won't find elsewhere, with customer service that is sure to please.
Thank you, Mr. Varo. You are a G-d send.
Ehron and Beth Nygard
When it comes to buying your first property/rent/sell can not find anyone better in Chicago area!
Claudio found me on twitter when I was starting my move from Wisconsin to Chicago and looking for an apartment. I had already worked with two other Realtors but they weren't understanding my needs, and it was difficult to meet up with them and decide when it fit both of our schedules. So I was very lucky and thankful that Claudio came around because it made my move from Wisconsin to Chicago extremely easy, and he was always willing to work with my schedule and when I could drive down from Wisconsin. He listened to all of mine and my roommate's needs (which were a lot) and catered to them so we could find a place that both her and I loved. We ended up finding a place extremely fast working with Claudio. Claudio showed that he cared about our needs, wants, and preferences. He is on top of everything and definitely doesn't have one ounce of 'slacking off' in his body. Overall, I am extremely happy that I chose to work with Claudio, and will continue to work with him in the future. I would recommend him to anyone looking to rent or buy in the Chicago land area.
Claudio was great in helping myself and 4 roommates find a home to call our own. He was very patient in looking at houses with us, coming from Chicago to the suburbs. He was very responsive to any and all e-mails and phone calls that I sent to him, always responding the same day.
I definitely know finding a 4-5 bedroom home in our price range was a daunting task but I'm happy with the home he's found for us. He would regularly show us 2-3 houses whenever we asked him to take a look at some. When we found the one we finally settled with he was with us the whole way from applying to actually checking in with us after the move to make sure everything went okay.
I'd recommend Claudio to any of my friends and family on the sure fact that Claudio will be the one to find you a home that you love.
Claudio helped my husband and me find a wonderful apartment in September of 2012. He was very conscientious about addressing our needs and wants and didn't show us anything that didn't accommodate those needs and wants. He is congenial, patient, has lots of knowledge about the Chicago rental market and is just an all-around nice guy and genuinely decent human being. I highly recommend him and the next time we're in the market for an apartment, I'll definitely be working with Claudio! He's the greatest!!
Choosing Claudio as our realtor to help us buy our second home was one of the first and best decisions my new husband and I made together. Claudio is very professional, easy (and fun!) to work with and he really understands the market, especially in Chicago area.
One of my favorite things I loved about working with Claudio is that he made buying every house a learning experience ( we bought our first one with him as well). He took the time to explain everything to us. When we made our first offer on the house, he sat down with us and explained every single document we signed so it was clear to us what we were signing. He is very thorough, we never felt rushed and he made sure ALL our questions were answered.
We never felt pressured into buying a home which is something I have expected a realtor to do. In fact, he would recommend against putting in offers and hold out for something better which we did and now we are in our new home and couldn't be happier!
I always felt like he gave us honest advice and that we could trust him. He is someone who I would definitely use again, when the time comes.
I highly recommend him, he is very honest, patient and tenacious!
We had a fantastic experience working with Claudio. He is professional, responsive, accomodating and HONEST. He was patient with our requests and limitations (I have a >50lb dog) and managed to find a great place in the perfect neighborhood. Without him, I never would have looked in Lincoln Square and now we love it. I never felt pressured with Claudio. I also appreciated the care with which he went through our contract before we signed it, just to make sure we had what we wanted.
Cannot say enough great things about working with Claudio! He was patient with us as all three of us girls were trying to find an apartment with different wants and needs. Nicest and easiest person to work with, couldn't have asked for anyone better! We will be using him again!
Claudio is a great person to work with in finding your new home. I moved from New York knowing nothing about Chicago and ranted on twitter about how difficult apt searching was giving me. Claudio seeked out and contacted me, laying out that he would help assist in my search for a new apartment. He is knowledgable and honest with answers to help provide you the best needs, prices and location according to your wishes. I would recommend Claudio to anyone in Chicago who is looking for a place to accommodate a budget and specific needs.
Claudio really saved me time and money in my hectic apartment hunt last year. I recommend him to everyone who's looking for a great place in Chicago. He really cares and pays attention to what people want instead of trying to push you off on random places to make a buck like most other agents I've gone through. My move from college 5 hours away to the city was a lot less stressful thanks to him.
I asked around for a few recommendations and a friend recommended Claudio. I knew his name from Twitter, so it was an easy decision to give him a try.
I really got the feeling that my happiness was more important than a commission with Claudio and that's a really good feeling when you are preparing to make a year-long commitment.
Not only was Claudio polite, kind, patient, zealous and organized, he was a fun pal to have along for the journey of finding a home.
I whole-heartedly recommend Claudio and will use him again when the time is right.
Claudio was wonderful to work with. His communication with me was prompt and friendly at all times and he found great apartments in my select price range and neighborhoods. Although we did not find the place we're living at through Claudio, I would use his service again in a heartbeat and highly recommend him to others.
Best realtor ever. No question. My roommates and I had to move and we all had different standards. One wanted cheap price. Another wanted location. And I wanted all updated. It was a daunting task to say the least but Claudio pulled thru. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. He found us a place that we all loved and that met all of our standards. He was genuinely concerned about our wants and put an extraordinary amount of time into figuring out our likes and dislikes and making sure he showed us places that we loved - I even cried on one of the showings I fell that much in love with the place! If you're wanting a realtor that genuinely cares and actually tries, he is the guy you want. I can't imagine having gone thru this process without him.
Claudio is probably the most honest, helpful, and patient real estate person I have ever dealt with.
I found Claudio via Twitter when I had posted about the daunting task of moving from small town, Indiana to Chicago. Claudio was patient with us working with our schedule. He also asked lots of questions regarding desires, locations, and budget and always stuck to what we asked, even when we changed our minds.
My boyfriend and I were not the easiest clients to deal with and Claudio stuck with us, and we finally got a lease on a great unit in a cute neighborhood with all the features we wanted in our budget.
When our lease is up in a year and we start looking to rent another unit or to buy, I am sure we will be contacting him again.
Being my first house purchase, i did not know anything about buying a home but Claudio guided me through the whole process. He is very attentive to detail and listens to what you are looking for. He is very knowledgeable in every aspect of selling or buying a house and if he does not know something he will find it out for you. It was a pleasure working with him and his team. It was the best house buying experience anybody could have asked for. Thank you Claudio!!
I like Claudio because he has excellent work ethic in every aspect and is very calm and focused. He will get the job done very well and with no drama. He is very respectful and professional, follows up in timely manner and fights for his clients and their needs. Highly recommended!
If I had to pick three words to describe Claudio, they would be honest, dependable and tenacious.
I was introduced to Claudio Varo by a friend when I needed to move from NYC to Chicago for a new job. As you can imagine, my case was difficult since I needed to find in apartment in very short timeframe and could not be in Chicago to physically look at apartments. From day one, Claudio was more helpful and accommodating than any realtor I’ve ever known. He asked detailed questions about what I was looking for and sent me listings that fit my requirements each day. Not once did he stray from my budget or expectations.
Since I had to do my apartment search remotely, he took extra photos and videos of every listing that I was interested in as well as the building and surrounding neighborhood. When I needed to change course midway through my search, he did so without missing a beat. He also promptly responded to every question or concern I had and took the time explain his answers.
Claudio Varo is not only a professional in the utmost sense of the word, but he is a joy to work with. He goes above and beyond for his clients and truly has a passion for his profession. I highly recommend him.
Claudio was absolutely great! Me and my roommate were extremely indecisive and a pain in the ass to say the least but he was always patient and helpful. He even went as far as to give us a ride after every showing, and always took us to our final destination. He listened to all of our expectations and tried his best to deliver a result. Now we are in a beautiful 2bed/bath in the exact location we wanted.
I had been searching for an apartment for months; trying to relocate from Michigan to Illinois. Beginning to get very frusterated, expressing my stress on twitter.. Claudio offered his help in finding an apartment. He was so helpful and made finding an apartment so much easier. My month long search turned into signing a lease a week later! I cannot thank Claudio enough for all his help! Our next move is on him!
As with most things I put off finding an apartment til the last minute and found myself running into dead ends at every turn. Claudio found me via Twitter and offered his services and did not disappoint! I was determined to live in a particular building and his diligent work found me the perfect place. From searching to move-in and even after, Claudio has been thorough and professional - I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to rent or buy in the Chicagoland area.
When my husband and I started searching for a condo, we were working with a realtor who had no idea what we wanted. Claudio really listened to what we were looking for, and showed us beautiful places in our budget right away. When we finally found the right condo, he bargained a great price for us. I would recommend him to anyone.
I honestly cannot say enough GOOD things about Claudio! My husband and I were originally going the "craigslist" route attempting to find a new apartment in Chicago - when after some venting via Twitter Claudio found me, offered to help & literally saved my sanity. He took down the criteria we wanted for our new place, our price range & neighborhoods we were interested in and immediately got to work! He replied promptly to every email I sent him, booked us numerous places to see within days - and within just a week or two he found the perfect apartment for us! We seriously could not be happier with our new place and with the fabulous job Claudio did! I recommend him to anybody I know looking to buy or rent in Chicago!!!
Claudio Varo is a great guy. He not only helped me find my dream house, but he remained patient and enthusiastic when even I was starting to think I wasn't going to find what I was looking for. He is extremely professional and always punctual, and is not just my realtor-- he is a good friend. It is refreshing to find someone to work with that is so informed, optimistic, and always upbeat. Claudio always has a smile and a great attitude. I would recommend anyone work with him for rental or sale. He is simply the best!
I couldn't recommend him more! He worked with our schedule, listened to what we wanted and showed us apartments that fit our criteria perfectly.
I recently helped Claudio with some website work — we've known each other through Twitter for quite a while and finally had the opportunity to meet in person because of this. He was absolutely a joy to work with. He was diplomatic and friendly as a client, providing constructive edits to my work and always very responsive during our work together.And as a real-estate broker, I can tell he really invests in his clients and has their best interests at heart. He is positive, quick with a joke or fun anecdote, and always realistic and pragmatic. I hope my work in telling his story on VaroRealEstate.com helps him gain more clients who can trust him to find a place they can call home!Looking forward to working with him again…maybe even as my broker.
My wife and I looked for apartments before, but never found anything we really liked. When we met Claudio, he took our long wish list and unrealistically small budget, and somehow managed to find us a place that made me and the wife happy. And he dropped us off for pizza!
My husband and I looked forever for a place to live. Claudio found us the perfect place in about two weeks. He's the nicest guy. He takes time to get to know his clients and make you feel comfortable. Without Claudio, we would still be sifting through apartment magazines and hating our apartment. Instead, we love our home! Thank you Claudio!!
Claudio is without question the best Realtor in Chicago. He is the person you want when you are looking to buy or rent a new home. After you tell Claudio your precise preferences in a new place, he works without rest until he finds you exactly what you are looking for. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Chicago real estate industry and gives you his honest opinion about everything. I am probably the most picky person in America when it comes to apartment rentals, but Claudio found me a place that satisfied each and every one of my needs. Before I moved to Chicago, Claudio spent months researching the perfect apartment for me and kept in constant contact. Once I arrived, he spent countless days driving me around Chicago until I found my dream town home. He is also available to answer your questions at any time and continues to answer my questions even after I rented!
I recently worked with Claudio for an apartment search in the Chicago area. Claudio was tirelessly patient, understanding and helpful as we decided on which geographic area we were most interested in. He was a great advocate of what we were looking for, budget and provided great options for our search. He has wonderful follow up and maintained a consistent communication strategy as we negotiated the details of our lease. I couldn't be happier with the place that Claudio found for us. I would definitely work with Claudio again for an apartment rental or home purchase and absolutely recommend him.
Claudio was tireless in his effort to help me find an apartment in Evanston, and I was very impressed with his follow-through at every step of the process. Claudio worked hard to ensure that I found what I was looking for, and I would highly recommend his services to anyone. Thanks Claudio!
Finding an apartment/somewhere to live can be very stressful, especially in Chicago where there are so many options, neighborhoods and ways to find the place.
Claudio was so helpful, sending me updates on new availability everyday, working with the building owners to stay at my price range and respectful to stay within my price range.
I will definitely use his services again and would recommend him to anyone!
Many thanks and good luck to Claudio!
We can breathe! Glad it finally closed! Hooray!
I appreciated your help and hands on approach. Many realtors jump out of the transaction after contract is accepted, where as you whet above and beyond your duty and stayed involved to be sure your clients needs were met from contract to close. Greatly appreciated!!
