Dion Hickles’ Realtor Testimonials:
“I HIGHLY recommend Dion Hickles for any real estate or rental needs. He met every request and exceeded my expectations with respect to helping me find the perfect apartment. He set up my appointments and attended every viewing with me, making sure I was happy and did not stop until I found what I wanted. To say that Dion is an asset is an understatement. I’m very grateful and pleased with the service he provided.”

“Working with a first-time homebuyer takes a special level of knowledge, patience, and endurance. You need to be part realtor, teacher, and coach. I found all of these qualities in Dion as he helped me navigate the home buying process. There were times when I felt discouraged and Dion reminded me that what I was experiencing was normal. There were other times I walked into a property with stars in my eyes and he brought me back to reality and was honest in sharing that he didn’t feel it was the best investment. Dion would also email me helpful links and share City of Chicago home buyer resources which were extremely beneficial when it came time to close. A quality that really impressed me was Dion’s responsiveness. There were a number of days and nights when I called or text at odd hours and would be pleasantly surprised that Dion would answer or text back in minutes! Throughout the process I had a wonderful teacher, coach and realtor and I would highly recommend Dion to any homebuyer, but definitely one who is new to the experience.”

“I began searching for a home in 2015, but had no idea who I should trust in my area to help me. I turned to Dion Hickles because I knew he was a knowledgeable Realtor and could help guide me in the process. Although I was interested in homes outside of Dion’s state, he took time to help me find a realtor that could meet my needs locally. My experience was seamless in working with Dion, and then, a new realtor in my home state who supported me through closing on a home. Dion was sure to check in throughout the process to confirm the referral was a good fit.
I would recommend Dion to anyone looking for a top professional in the business, and his commitment to high standards met my needs from beginning to end. You can tell he enjoys his work, which helped make my home buying process stress-free…even with an out-of-state home.”
