"We had an unfortunate and bad service experience with a real estate agent working at Baird & Warner, Edwin. We lost a lease on a rental home in Naperville, IL due to his carelessness and lack of communication with a lease signing deadline. I knew from the beginning that there was an issue with him as he didn't show up to an initially scheduled showing of the house and instead was waiting for us at a different property. An easily understood mistake, however when we were given a lease to read and sign after a 2nd scheduled viewing, naturally we had questions pertaining to Lead & Radon disclosures as well as few other things that were stipulated in the lease to which we sent an email to Edwin about. A few days later, we received an email from Edwin stating that the owner has decided to go in a different direction and that the lease was no longer ours. We had no idea of a deadline and we're shocked! After talking with another real estate agent from Remax who was listed as the realtor showing said property, he informed me that the owner was expecting a signed lease next day after our receipt. I explained to him we didn't know that fact and were waiting to hear from Edwin about Lead disclosure and specifics whether or not if the home had lead paint. If we were given a Lead/Radon disclosure at the beginning from the realtor, I think that we would've have been able to sign the lease and still have a home to move into. This is a stressful time for me and my family and we are appalled to say the least at the customer service provided by this particular realtor. I would not recommend using Edwin Hojnacki's services as a real estate agent."
"We had a good experience with Tom. Even though we are a bit early in locating an apartment for next spring. He was kind, patient and responsive in showing us a few units we were interested in pursuing.
Will definitely contact Tom when it is closer to a move in date."
