Recent reviews:
Ted was absolutely great! He met with us several times over a two year period until we were ready to sell. He gave us good advice and we never felt pressured to list before we were ready. Once we were preparing to put our condo on the market, Ted went above and beyond in assisting us. He arranged for someone to come in and touch up the paint and fix other things so the condo would show at its best. He even went to Home Depot to get the paint! Ted made everything really easy. Once the condo was on the market it sold in one week! All went smoothly through the closing. We have and will recommend Ted to others. He's terrific!


Searching and finding then closing in on a reasonably-priced apartment in downtown Chicago is like looking for a needle in a haystack but Ted helped make the process as painless as possible after i fell in love with the condo I ended up signing a lease on! He was very patient in answering all questions (via text, email and calls!) that both my boyfriend (who's also a realtor) and I had and at any time of the day. He's a very personable agent and an incredibly genuine individual and it was a pleasure to have met and conducted business with him.

I have enjoyed working with Ted to rent an apartment around Lakeview. He is very helpful and responsible. I would definitely choose them again for future businesses.

Ted was a pleasure to work with and he found us our dream apartment. Could not ask for a better realtor!

Working with Ted and his team was a great experience. As a first time homebuyer, I was extremely skeptical and worried about the whole process, especially trusting a real estate agent. My initial meetings with Ted immediately put those worries to bed. He is truly focused on your (the buyer) interests and helping you find the right home for your situation. He helped educate us on the market and different property types in order for us to narrow down our search and figure out what we wanted. He never once pressured us and listened intently to our thoughts and opinions. My wife and I ended up purchasing a home that we truly love. I would recommend Ted to any family member or friend looking to buy/sale a place in Chicago.

Ted was a fantastic help during our home hunt. He understood our preferences in a home and showed us several units that were in our price range and great places to potentially live. He clearly explained his valuation of a given property and provided sage advice when negotiating our initial offers and counter offers. He also went the extra mile to be present for the closing. He knows the Streeterville and Gold Coast market VERY well. I'd recommend Ted in a heartbeat and will use him again when we need to buy and/or sell.

I have known Ted professionally for many years and he continued his excellent service and a stellar reputation with our last deal together. He made it easy for everyone involved.

Ted has the patience of a saint. I have had the experience working with Ted over the last 5 years. He always goes above and beyond and is great explaining the process. Ted was there every step of the way. He never gave up looking for the right property for me. In the end, I found the home of my dreams. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a home.

It has been a pleasure working with Ted to rent out our property. Ted is incredibly knowledgeable about the Chicago market and we appreciated his insightful advice and opinions. He genuinely acts in the best interest of his clients, which was evident in his thoroughness and responsiveness throughout the entire process. Overall, it was a great experience and we look forward to working with him again in the future.

I worked with Susie of the Guarnero Real Estate Group and had an amazing experience. She helped me find my dream home in River North and made the overall process smooth and easy. I was a first time home-buyer and she went above and beyond for me, answering my millions of questions promptly and patiently. I would highly recommend her!

Nobody knows the City like Ted. He is very professional yet down to earth. He listens to your needs and fills the order. He doesn't try to show or sell you something you don't desire but he will have excellent suggestions. I have a family member who is also a realtor but when it comes to a property search in Chicago ...I use Ted as he is on top of this market.

Working with Ted was great! Typically landing an apartment in Chicago feels like a nightmare. But Ted was professional and efficient. I would highly recommend working with him.

Ted has managed our property for a number of years now. I find Ted to be dedicated, creative and tenacious. He treats my money as if it were his own. And is available whenever needed. I would recommend Ted highly to anyone needing real estate assistance, be it selling or renting.

We owned a condo in downtown Chicago that our son lived in. After he moved out we decided to sell the condo but we were not able to physically be in Chicago to handle the process. We were referred to Ted Guarnero and the entire process was handled over the phone or by e-mail and was easy. We felt Ted obtained a fair settlement for us. Someday I hope to meet him in person.

Mr. Guarnero is a pleasure to work with. He is very thorough, honest and always has the best interest of his client in mind. I highly recommend him!

Ted has been my realtor for over 7 years. He has helped me rent my condo and then sell my condo. Over the years I have gotten to know his incredible work ethic and caring attitude. I only work with Ted!!!!!

I worked with The Guarnero Group to find an apartment in Chicago and was extremely impressed with how hard Ted and his staff worked to find something that fit all my needs and wants. I highly recommend The Guarnero Group if you're looking for a luxury rental, condo, or home in downtown Chicago.

I've worked with Ted for 2 years and only have the best things to say about him. Courteous, professional, consistently goes above and beyond.

I been working with Ted for two years and all I can say is that it's been a wonderful experience. I'm really looking forward to work with him again!

Ted Guarnero is a true professional at every level. I would never hesitate to recommend Ted and his team.

Ted was a terrific agent for us. His understanding of the market and building we purchased in was superb.

It was a pleasure working with Ted! Very professional, the transaction went very smooth!!!!
