I truly cannot say enough kind words about Lori Dake. Apartment hunting on the north side of Chicago was getting incredibly stressful and tiresome, and then we found Lori, who was communicative, professional, kind, answered all of our questions in a timely manner, and incredibly helpful. She walked us through the entire application process, the approval process, answered all questions about our lease with ease, and even gave us a cute gift for our new home on our move-in day. Even after moving in, she sends kind email updates with helpful information for us (and sometimes, awesome cooking recipes). I will recommend Lori to anyone and everyone I know. From working with our hectic schedules in scheduling appointments, to emailing back unbelievably fast, Lori is an incredible realtor who truly cares about her clients.

I've worked with Lori twice now, and she's proven that "Going above and beyond" is just one of her many outstanding professional qualities. The two properties she's helped me with are in Chicago, while I've relocated to northern Illinois and so really couldn't be present for much of the process. Lori was my eyes and ears, took me through the entire thing painlessly, expediently, and made sure I remained up to date on each development as it occurred.
I will never use another Realtor again. Thank you for everything, Lori

Absolutely amazing. Lori Dake is a phenomenal real estate agent. From the beginning to the end, Lori put in extra effort to help find my boyfriend and I a new home. Lori sent us multiple listings, and worked with us to view apartments and asked the listing agents the difficult questions. When we finally found a place we loved, the listing agent was being difficult, and Lori got things done. She made sure that every one of our wants and needs were met and advocated on our behalf. Kale Real Estate is a great company, and is definitely lucky to have someone like Lori! I would highly recommend her :)

Lori Dake and her boss David helped to sell my house in Humboldt Park last year and they did a wonderful job during the process. They were incredibly helpful. My buying agent Quentin was wonderful too and they helped me move from the city to the suburbs. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy/sell/rent. Thank you!

Having recently moved out of the city, I was unable to take care of renting my condo myself. Lori Dake came through like a pro among pros! All "I's" dotted, all "T's" crossed! She took care of everything from beginning to end and kept me in the loop at every turn..
Seriously, I've worked in real estate so I've known my share of realtors. Lori is easily among the most conscientious, professional, and thorough agents I've EVER worked with - and the fact that was was a long distance business venture (for me) made her attention to detail that much more welcome. I couldn't possibly recommend her highly enough.
Lori, from my family to yours, thank you! You really came through.

I would highly recommend Kale Realty. Lori was great to work with She was very responsive and it was easy to get hold of her. She seemed very knowledgeable when it came to Chicago realty. She helped me find a place that matched my requirements. Unfortunately, I was unable to get the first apartment because the apartment owner was very particular when it came to renting the place. However, Lori fought for me. She tried to convince the owner just for my sake because she understood my situation. Still, it was enough. Good thing, she found another place for me and I had no trouble getting the place. With this kind of service, I find no reason not to use them again!

Lori Dake was especially helpful when I needed her for real estate advice in the past. I may not have worked directly with her since she moved to Kale, but knowing she is now part of this team tells me the kind of company Kale is to work with! And that is Top Notch professional service! I look forward to recommending Kale to any of my friends and family, when they ask for a recommendation!
