Case Histories


Recently, my mother and I faced a situation where we needed to sell her home in Lisle.  Having lived in this home for over 30 years, the prospect of moving was very stressful and difficult on my mother.We were in contact with several potential buyers when we reached out Walter Kubiesa of REA Properties.  He responded very quickly, and understanding our urgency, made time in his schedule to come out with his wife to visit the home soon thereafter.  We discussed our situation in depth and Walter presented us with an offer to consider.  At no point did he attempt to pressure us to make a decision, knowing full well that this was a very stressful situation for us.  In the end, Walter’s offer was the best cash offer and we accepted.

Throughout the entire sales and closing process, Walter was very sensitive to how difficult this situation was for my mother.  He accomodated our need for extra time to relocate my mother, answered all of my mother’s questions and concerns, and treated us with respect and compassion throughout.  The final transaction went smoothly and at no point, did I ever have any concerns.

I am happy to endorse and recommend Walter & REA Properties without hesitation.

Sincerely, Andy and Kyung  Min Yun


To Whom It May Concern:

I was invited to live with my son and daughter-in-law in North Carolina and wanted to move there soon after retiring this month. I had saved a postcard that Walter had sent me last year and called him to buy my house. He presented me with an offer to buy my house for cash in its current condition and was willing to close the sale over a relatively short time period, when it was convenient for me. Knowing I have a firm offer in a bad market gives me peace of mind and allows me to move on with my life. We’re closing February 15th, and I’m moving that weekend. I would highly recommend Walter as he is honest, knowledgeable, respectful and very easy to work with.

It got to the point where we finally needed to sell my mother’s home in Oak Lawn.  I received a post card from Walter and REA Properties, (in fact more than one post card).  He expressed his interest in buying the house.  I called and Walter came out promptly and met my wife and I at the property.

After looking at the house and discussing the situation, Walter wrote an offer which was acceptable to us.  We closed the transaction shortly thereafter.  He paid cash, and there were no glitches during the process.  Everything went smoothly.  I would recommend Walter as someone to do business with, as he kept his word with us and closed the sale as soon as we were ready.

This summer I received one of Walter’s mailers about buying my house in Hickory Hills. Since I was between jobs I decided to take some action and call before the situation got worse. After an initial meeting, Walter came up with a plan to save my excellent credit and take care of the mortgage payments until a sale of the house was completed and the mortgage paid off.

Walter was responsive to my needs, flexible in his approach, and most gratifying of all, true to his word. He came through on everything he promised. If you are thinking about selling your house, I would heartily recommend contacting Walter Kubiesa and REA Properties about buying it. I used their services and am very glad I did.

To Whom it may concern:

This letter is written in reference of Walter Kubiesa and REA Properties.

When we found a home that we wanted to move to in Indiana, that new home was under construction. We needed to make a decision rather quickly. Earlier that year we had received a post card from REA Properties, which said they could buy our house in any condition, and close when we needed to. Our house did need some work, and the card sounded too good to be true. Even though we were skeptical, we decided to call.

When Walter came out a few days later, he inspected the house, and we sat down and worked through a purchase agreement. We decided on a closing date several weeks later. The sale of the house closed right on time, and we were able to buy our new home as planned. Through the whole process, Walter explained clearly what was happening, kept us advised as to what we needed to do, and was very professional.

We had an excellent experience with REA Properties, and would highly recommend them to someone in a similar situation.

Re: James Walter Kubiesa, REA Properties Ltd.

I recently sold a property in Chicago to Walter Kubiesa of REA Properties Ltd. All aspects of the transaction were entirely satisfactory. In fact the closing took place in early January while I was in Japan.

It had become increasingly difficult to manage my property from New York. Over the years I had been fortunate to have responsible tenants, who oversaw the property. These tenants left in October and November. Repairs to, and redecoration of the units were necessary in order to lease the apartments to new tenants. In addition, it would have been difficult to find tenants who would also oversee the property. Thus I would need to engage a management agency, whose fees would result in a less advantageous financial situation.

It was time to consider the option of selling the property. The plan offered by REA Properties to purchase in as-is condition, to close quickly without the need to find financing, and to negotiate a fair selling price was attractive. I met Mr. Kubiesa personally, and found him to be someone I felt I could trust.

I can recommend without reservation Mr. Kubiesa and REA Properties as responsible agents to do business with.
