Lou Zucaro - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Lou is the absolute best!

We reached out to him for help finding our MidCentury Modern dream house and six months later we closed on just that! Lou was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process: from looking at multiple houses, through putting in an offer and guiding us through the closing process. He was super attentive, responsive to questions and just a dang pleasure to be around in person. He is so knowledgeable on a such a wide range of topics, from real estate, design, and architecture to zoning laws and construction materials. And if he didn’t have an answer for us, he surely was prompt in figuring it out. This should be your guy, especially if MidCentury houses are your thing.

Lou listened very well and incorporated our story into the marketing plan.

The exposure was exemplary. The price was right. Lou is a professional and we will recommend.

Lou got me in touch with various resources that I might want to use during the sale of my townhouse.

I met with stagers, movers, lawyers and made my decisions on what I wanted and needed. He also placed the information about my house with all the housing websites such as MLS, Trulia, Zillow Realtor.com as well as his own company,Baird & Warner. He had a professional photographer take photos of my home and we picked what we thought were the best among those to include in an informational and professional looking brochure to be handed out. He planned two different open houses for Realtors and the public. I was advised each week with how many people had looked at my house on his website. He suggested some changes if I wanted to enhance the probability of a larger audience for my home. Signs were made and framed to point out special feature and placed nearby. He was always available and quickly let me know if there had been a request to view the home and if it was convenient for me. He would then confirm the viewing with the prospective buyers Realtor.

My wife and I had not been involved in any type of real estate transaction in over 20 years so when it came time to sell my parents home we not only had the stress of not being familiar with the "process" involved in selling a home but for me, the emotional stress of selling my parents home, the home I grew up in; in stepped Lou Zucaro.

Lou was extremely patient and informative throughout the process, when we were faced with a few "challenges" during the closing Lou thoroughly explained the options and helped us overcome the challenge. An example was having to address the issue of radon. Never in my life have I had to deal with radon and Lou helped my wife and I through the remediation process, providing recommendations for companies, and helping accelerate the remediation so that we could complete the closing as scheduled. I can't imagine having gone through the sale of my parents home without Lou's help. If ever my wife and I need a Realtor, there is no needing to decide who to choose, it will be Lou.

Lou!

You were the perfect person to sell our family home. Your appreciation and knowledge was sincere and always beyond helpful. When you are selling a special home you need a special person to take good care and to pass that information on. The nuts and bolts of information ranging from stove top knobs to 50 year old plumbing was a godsend. We truly enjoyed you spirit and the excellent job you did. So many thanks!!

We first heard about Lou from a letter we received saying how much he loved our house and his association with the Modern Illinois organization.

After reading his letter and learning more about his love for mid-century architecture, we knew when the time came to put our house on the market, Lou would be our broker. Well that time came and Lou became our listing agent in June 2017. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Lou on both the sell and buy and we cannot say enough good things about him. His innovative sales methods, amazing personality and professionalism throughout our entire journey made it an absolute joy. Lou kept us well informed and always made it a point to be at the showings to ensure the potential buyer and their agent knew the history of the home and the uniqueness of the property. In addition, Lou was always available for our questions and concerns throughout the process and when it came to close the deal his negotiation skills were exceptional. We would highly recommend Lou to anyone out there who needs a realtor no matter what type of home they are looking to buy or sell.

My husband and I recently had to move to the North Chicago area from Atlanta, GA and were looking for a Mid-Century Modern or Contemporary design dream home.

We were so fortunate to find Lou Zucaro from an online search and were thrilled to find someone specializing in MCM and modern design. Lou was so communicative, helpful and thorough in his dealings with us prior to our house-hunting visit to the North Chicago area. He took the time to understand our wish list for our dream home, and he used that information to find additional listings we might want to see and to put together a schedule for us to view homes. It was so easy working with him remotely, which was so comforting to us being so far away. When we finally got to meet Lou in person, he could not have been more personable and professional. He is very driven by his passion for modern design, and his enthusiasm is truly contagious. House hunting with Lou was not only productive in terms of finding us the perfect home but was also informative and actually a lot of fun! Lou is so knowledgeable about MCM homes that my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed picking his brain and learning more about the architects in the area. Lou helped us find the perfect home, in the perfect location, and we are so grateful for his expertise and guidance! There was a lot to navigate with the purchase of the home, which was not easy to do remotely from Georgia. Lou bent over backwards to act as our proxy, overseeing home inspections, making recommendations for legal counsel, and coordinating vendors to give quotes for work needed on the home. He gave us solid advice every step of the way, and we knew he had our best interest at heart. We are so thankful to have had the fortune to work with Lou, and we couldn't be happier in our new dream home. Even now, weeks after the close on our new home, Lou is still checking in on us to make sure we're settled in and don't have any further questions. Truly superb customer service. We could not recommend Lou more highly.

We had chosen to work with Lou to sell our home after a extensive interview process – it was the right decision.

  Selling a house is a process that requires both art and science.  Lou was able to successfully deploy the latest technology to showcase our special home.  It also requires in depth market knowledge and regional expertise, Lou excelled.    Lou also brought a level of trust  and a no-drama attitude to what could often be a stressful situation.  Selling your home, often your largest asset, is important to get right the first time to market.  Lou did all things right for us to result in a successful transaction.   Lou has domain expertise and strong personal interest that is  so important when selling a Modern/MCM home.  Lou was honest, straightforward and successful in selling our home – it was an easy process for us.

Dave Eggert

When our family decided to move to Chicago, we had concerns that we would not be able to find a home that met our design sensibility and budget.

 We were so lucky to have come across Lou’s website and posting for mid-century modern homes - we had found our realtor!  Lou found our absolute dream home.  The house was actually under contract when we found it but because he knew the listing agent and was persuasive, we were able to see the home and propose a back up offer.  The stars aligned and Lou helped us purchase our perfect mid-century modern forever home. Our entire lives have been leading up to this city and this house.  Lou helped make it happen. If you want a dedicated and passionate realtor who will be relentless in finding you your dream home, then Lou Zucaro is the broker for you.

Claudine & Giorgio

Lou was a fantastic resource for us while finding a home in Lake County.

We looked for months as we learned about the area and he was familiar many of the North Shore communities with modern homes. He accommodated our schedule and always had well organized plans in place prior to showing. Lou is trustworthy, honest and hard working. We now consider him our friend.

Matt Faletti

From the outset and throughout the process, Lou made himself extremely available to us.

It was extremely gratifying to work with someone who genuinely appreciated the unique house we were selling and its many special features. (One reason we chose to work with Lou was his passion for modern architecture. We soon discovered another compelling reason: his clear love of what he does and full commitment to it.) As buyers, Lou never tired of our requests to see houses all over the place in style and location. He "got" our sense of urgency, had valuable input in all phases of the process, and demonstrated knowledge and creativity (e.g., of architecture, renovation, structural issues). He was warm, funny, and enthusiastic. We would recommend Lou to anyone who is considering buying or selling in the Chicago suburbs.

Lou exemplifies a real estate agent - personable, knowledgeable & professional!

Lee & Rick A.

Lou was awesome from beginning to end!

Lou listened to us and understood our needs. He gave us space when we needed it, and did everything he possibly could to resolve problems when they came up.

Jane & David S.

Lou was extremely helpful in our home search from the very beginning all the way up until the very end.

This was our first time buying a home so we had a lot of questions. I work in an industry where you're often answering a lot of questions for people who don't understand your industry at all. Lou nailed it. He never once made us feel dumb or that we were being sold something we didn't want. Lou knew exactly what we wanted and helped us find it right within our budget + timeline.

Danuta, Anna, Beata Kania

It was a pleasure to work with Lou Zucaro during our home search and purchasing process.

He was extremely responsive and knowledgeable (without being pushy) and had a keen eye for design and architectural elements. He was patient when we needed time and happily showed us several properties until we found our match. Once the buying process kicked in, he constantly encouraged the process forward so we could close in a timely fashion. My wife and I would absolutely recommend Lou to anyone looking to buy a home in the Northern Chicago suburbs.

Jacob Butman

He does more than helping you sell/ buy houses.

He has extensive knowledge of MCM and that's his passion. Every step of the way he was very helpful. Occasionally we got out bid and didn't get an offer and discouraged, he was there to encourage and motivate us. We highly recommend Lou.
