Sam Lubeck - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Previous agent headed for the hills after his lender realized I was not going to get a mortgage for the new home.

I worked out a new strategy and started looking for a new home again. Sam was the only agent that followed through. He reached out to help us look at properties in the end it all worked out.

Edward Wai- Soong Wong

Sam is not the typical realtor.

We met him at an open house he was hosting for another client of his, and we really appreciated his open and honest style. We asked Sam to both sell our current home in Gurnee, and help us find a new house in Libertyville at the same time. He took on the listing and we had a great offer within 2 days of being on the market. He also made himself available to look at new homes, and he was able to successfully negotiate the purchase price of our new home. There were challenges Sam navigated along the way, dealing with a very pushy and disrespectful buyer’s agent. This agent nearly caused the deal to fall apart, but Sam kept his cool and dealt with the more inexperienced realtor, pushing back when needed, but ultimately securing the deal through close. Sam has established himself as Chicagoland’s Real Estate Agent. If you are looking for an experienced realtor that will work for you, contact Sam!

Sam was amazing, very knowledgeable about the area and passionate about how he could market our property and close a deal.

Throughout the process he keep us well informed and managed the buyer visits to minimize impacts on our family.

My wife and I were looking to move from Los Angeles to the Glenview/Northbrook area of the Chicago Suburbs and we found Sam Lubeck via glowing reviews from previous clients, which I am happy to say, were highly accurate!

In the hunt for us buying a new home, Sam was highly organized and accommodating, helping us narrow down from a wide field to what we were really looking for, and then arranging well-scheduled days of showings, fitting in all of the properties we were interested in. When it came to making an offer, Sam had great advice throughout but also allowed us the freedom to do what made us most comfortable. We also appreciated Sam's ability to be available to us and get us prompt responses and updates when we needed them. From the get go, Sam told us that it was most important to him that we found a house we were excited about and could be happy with the process of buying, and he clearly demonstrated that edict throughout the process. Whether you are in the market for a new home locally or making a move from across the country, I highly recommend Sam Lubeck!

Sam was incredibly patient while we searched for our "forever home".

He answered millions of questions, responded quickly to requests to view homes, and held our hands throughout the entire home buying process. He was a veritable font of knowledge and his advice proved to be extremely accurate and helpful. I strongly encourage anyone looking to buy their dream home to seek out Sam's help - you won't regret it!!

Sammy was a consummate professional.

He was completely transparent with his strategy for the sale of our home as well as the potential risks and rewards of that strategy. Due to his hard work, the strategy paid off and we sold for almost 10% above ask!

Sam was knowledgeable about the local market and we did put the house on the market durng the winter months, he let us know each offer and how we should proceed with the given situation.

he was always honest about the circumstances and we felt that he advised us appropriately. sam was always available to us and returned phone calls in a timely manner. We enjoyed working with Sam and would recommend him to our friends.

Donna Goldman

I remember calling Sammy when he was on vacation, and I told him that my house needed to be sold in a week.

We were under contract 6 days later. 

Sam helped my wife and I buy a house in Chicago, and we could not be more pleased with our experience working with him.

We had a bad experience with another realtor, but when we switched to Sam, we knew right away that he was a real pro. He stuck with us as we saw literally dozens of houses, and his knowledge and input was invaluable. He's a genuinely likable guy who never made us feel any pressure, and clearly wanted us to make the best choice. He was great at communicating with us and with sellers, and I'm certain that his charm and business savvy helped us secure a good deal. We were first-time home buyers, and we were frequently anxious and confused, but Sam put us at ease and helped us through every nerve-wracking part of the process. He's a great agent, and a genuinely good dude.

Dave W.

Not only has Sam done a phenomenal job of helping us with rentals in the city of Chicago, but he also helped my parents sell their house in Palatine, and buy a townhouse in Hoffman Estates.

You don't find many agents that are willing to go all around the Chicagoland area for their clients. Sam is truly willing to go anywhere for his clients.

I can honestly say, I would HIGHLY recommend Sam to anyone one of my friends or family in a heartbeat!

He made things so easy and smooth. No pressure, no games, just honesty and extreme knowledge of the real estate field, both selling and buying!! With selling my house, which was a extremely difficult decision to maked and do for me. The house belonged to my "late" mom. The house was a last connection for me. I don't think I could of really gone through with it if it wasn't for Sam. He made such a difficult situation so much easier for me. Absolutely respectful of my feelings. While we were looking for a new home for me, Sam was extremely knowledgable of neighborhoods, pricing of the houses, and helping me find what exactly I was looking for!! So, yes!!! I would absolutely recommend Sam for your next real estate agent! And if the time was to ever come for me to move in the future, he'd be my first phone call!!!!

Rachel G.

Sammy was game to see any house we wanted to see.

He was patient with us, and when the market turned he was honest about how things were different now. He got to know us and our style, and he truly wanted what was best for us.

Amy Puma

Sam did a great job from beginning to the end, we are more than pleased with his service.

I would recommend him to anyone who needs the services. Thanks Dr. Tom Bryant

Dr Tom Bryant

I couldn’t have asked for a better real estate agent than Sam Lubeck.

  Sam is consistently reliable and truly listens to our concerns or challenges as they come up.  Sam’s recommendations based off market pricing, availability to attend showings or provide alternative suggestions, showed a deep caring for our needs as clients. Our original house sold within 2 weeks with multiple offers which created a good challenge of finding a new place quickly.  Once we decided on a location, Sam was able to manage through a difficult outgoing homeowner/real estate agent relationship and got my new family into the house we deeply desired.  Thank you, Sam!  - Brian Price

It was a pleasure working with Sam.

He was extremely helpful and informative. He is very responsive, personable, honest and wraps it all up with a sense of humor. We worked with an agent for 3 years to find our dream house and we couldn't get anywhere with him but Sam helped us to find our beautiful house in less than three month in this volatile 2021 market. His team (attorney and lender) also is wonderful and knowledgeable like Sam. Sam is educated and he knows what he is doing. What we really appreciate about Sam is he never pushed us to make a decision and he never think about sealing a deal to make his own money. During this short journey, we felt that we are his first priority and we are really grateful to him. I feel we were lucky to have a chance to work with Sam and we were very pleased with the work Sam provided for us. we highly recommend Sam Lubeck. Thank you, Sam!

Why did we go with Sammy?

Because he keeps things light. It's so easy to get stressed with these huge life decisions, but he kept us smiling and laughing throughout the whole process, while still being incredibly professional. He's also an awesome negotiator! - Dana

Jamie Sickles

Sam Lubeck was professional and kept us in the loop at all times.

He is also very personable and understands the realty business very well. Sam would set up the visits for us to see the available listings where we were interested in seeing. Along with finding a new home, Sam helped us with the sale of our old home too. We agreed on a sale price and was successful in obtaining an offer on the first showing. Sam provided us with ideas on how to make our home more presentable for the sale, which apparently worked. We were very pleased with the work Sam provided for us.

Denise Etienne

Sam was my agent for my very first home (condo) purchase, and I could not have been in better hands.

He was knowledgeable, patient and never let me lose sight of my ultimate goal of owning my own place in an area that I was excited to live in. We looked at many places together, and he was always prompt and prepared. He gave me ample time and to make my own decisions while being an excellent sounding board. He never made me feel rushed or that he had somewhere else he needed to be. When I finally found the place to call home, he quickly established a good rapport with the seller's agent and the negotiations were quick and fair. He knows the Chicagoland area extremely well, is a great people person, and truly has his clients' best interests in mind. Meet with Sam, and you'll be sold as well!

We really appreciated his guidance in everything from neighborhoods to consider, what to look for in a home and how to navigate the process in general.

Sam was a pleasure to work with in purchasing our home.

His temperament was a perfect match for us - patient, excellent listener, great teacher about the housing market today, subtle sense of humor, willing to follow our lead with respect to our timeline to select the right home for us, but also knowing when to express urgency to make sure we got the house we wanted in a very(!) tight market. We are so very grateful to Sam for helping us buy a house that fit our needs perfectly. Thank you, Sam!

Cari A.

Before we put our townhouse on the market, nothing had ever sold for more than $300,000 in our Deerfield subdivision.

Sammy encouraged us to shoot for the stars with our asking price. A month later, we sold our place for $315,000! Thanks Sammy!

Sam was fantastic!

He really understands the market and how to get the most money for your sale while still balancing marketability. Case in point, my wife and I had agreed on a sale price before engaging Sam. Sam suggested that we increase our price by more than 10%, and we would still meet our goal of a fast sale. Sam was right! We got his suggested price AND had the offer in 13 days. Thanks for all your help, Sam! You were great!

Andrew Kroll

Sam was incredibly helpful in the buying process.

He literally went the extra mile, traveling whatever distance was necessary to look at homes. He even helped with transportation when needed! He provided experienced insight into the homes while shopping. And when it came time to settling on offers, he exceeded expectations in negotiating the final price. Sam also was very visible and available throughout the process all the way through to the final closing. Sam was a pleasure to engage with throughout the process. I highly recommend Sam to anybody looking for a real estate agent.

Sam is an outstanding realtor - extremely knowledgeable, customer focused, and he makes what could be a stressful process of selling your home to be as easy as possible.

Sam is very transparent and he gives you the facts to help make sure you're going in with an informed perspective on the market and he's realistic so you don't waste time. He's motivated by the work and he is personally invested in getting the best deal possible. He's extremely accessible and frankly just a great person to work with. I've worked with him on rental and home sale and will continue to be a repeat customer the next time I'm ready to move!

"Sammy was great to work with to buy my new home. I am new to the area, and he had good insight about the towns and market to give me an understanding of home value and helping me select areas that had what I was looking for (trails, restaurants, shops, etc). He walked through homes with me and pointed out things as if he was also buying the home, which allowed us to have honest conversations about what would and wouldn’t work for me. He was never pushy, but also direct when explaining how quickly the market moves. Sammy was always a quick text or phone call away for any questions!"

"Sammy was fantastic to work with, he was responsive and took action to get us in to view the properties we wanted to see quickly and then helped us navigate our offer on a highly competitive listing. He was great in working with the seller's agent to communicate on our behalf and was patient with my lack of knowledge of the process as a first-time homebuyer. He went above and beyond to make sure we were prepared and always confirmed appointments and important dates to ensure we met deadlines and were prepared at every step along the way. He was personable and friendly and seemed genuinely excited for us. Overall a wonderful experience, and I would gladly work with Sammy again."

"Sammy was recommended to us by friends, and we couldn't be happier with the quality of service and expertise he provided. The process for first-time home buyers is intimidating, and Sammy's guidance helped us prepare and make the experience so much more manageable. He was responsive to our ideas and what we wanted while giving his own input. He's very honest and genuinely invested in finding the right home. When we found "the one", he was extremely quick in connecting with the listing agent, devising a strategy to make us stand out as bidders, and networking with other experts to ensure we had the right team together. I was expecting a lot of bumps along the way but the journey was so much smoother with his support. I highly recommend working with Sammy."
