We found Tony on the web and contacted him. After meeting with him the first time my husband and I knew we found a Broker who would truley be our advocate and put our needs before his own. Shortly afterward, Tony helped my husband and I find the perfect property to buy and we got such a great deal I had to write this testimonial to let everyone know how we feel about using Tony. If you are looking for a Broker who is also an accredited buyers agent, pick Tony! Tony gets our highest approval and we can not recommend him enough if you are looking to buy or sell real estate in Chicago or the Chicago area!

Tony was very thorough in selecting units based on our criteria and also understood what was needed. Tony provided many selections throughout the engagement and was regularly informed about units that were no longer available. Rent negotiation was handled very well to reduce the rent as well. Highly professional and always communicative.
We had our place listed for 8 weeks though another realtor and we only had 4 showings and no real offers. We ended up firing the first realtor and going with Tony in November (a bad month for renting) and he had 18 showings in the first week and had our place rented with 10 days at full price and an 18 month lease. I would highly recommend Tony. He was up front with me and under promised and over performed, which is rare with realtors in my experience. I will be using Tony in the future for not only renting my property but selling when the time comes.
I am excited to share my comments about working with Anthony Desuno. I relocated to the Chicagoland area three years ago, and have worked with Tony ever since. He has assisted me with a move from the suburbs to the River North area, and recently to the expanding South Loop area. I have found him to be a very honest, hard working, thorough professional who goes above and beyond for his clients. Tony knows real estate, market conditions and most important – Chicago! It has always been fun working with Tony and I completely trust him. I highly recommend him to service your real estate needs. 5 Stars. Eric Jackson
Anthony did a great job meeting all of our real estate needs as first time buyers. Not only was he honest and professional, but every service company he recommended was top notch! We would definitely use his services again.
We have been lucky enough to work with Tony twice. First in 2011, when we moved to Chicago and were looking to rent an apartment and again in 2013, when we decided to buy. Both times he was terrific to work with. We found him to be realistic, driven, responsive and able to pull a rabbit out of his hat. The unit he found for us to rent was a terrific deal and we were able to buy the 3-bedroom unit of our dreams in a VERY competitive, super hot market. We credit Tony in helping us win this place and highly recommend working with him!
Tony has been a lifesaver for us–twice! Three years ago, my husband and I were looking to buy our first condo. We found Tony on Yelp and we chose him because we didn’t want to be a part of a large company where there was a fight for commission. Tony had good reviews and was just the type of person we were looking for. He paid attention to what we were looking for and didn’t stop looking until we found exactly what we wanted. It took us several months before we found our perfect match. Tony knew about the property before it even went on the market and was able to make sure we had our preapproval ready so we could make an offer that day. He was knowledgeable about condo associations and the South Loop and made every twist and turn manageable and helped prepare us ahead of time. We recently decided to move to the suburbs for more space. We knew we would want to work with Tony again because we were so pleased the first time around. We also needed to sell our condo. He helped us find the perfect neighborhood and put in the legwork to find the right property. After many showings, we found the right house for us. We also had to put our condo on the market right before Christmas. Despite the fact that this was not a good time to do that, Tony moved quickly to have great photos and 3-D imaging taken of our condo. We had multiple offers on our property and were able to sell and move within our timeframe. This was an incredibly stressful time for us, but Tony was always there to answer our questions and was available to talk whenever we needed him. Not only does Tony come with real estate knowledge, but he also associates himself with incredibly competent mortgage brokers (Guaranteed Rate), closing attorneys (Bob Galgan) and inspectors (Domicile Inspection). Tony’s referrals were crucial in buying and selling our condo and buying our first home. Without them, the process could’ve been much more challenging. They were all trustworthy individuals who gave us the personal attention we needed during the process. Tony is the total package. If you want to make the buying or selling process simpler, Tony is the realtor to choose. We hope that we are in our house for many years to come, but we will turn to Tony when we make the next move!a
Tony was masterful at finding EXCELLENT tenants to rent my Chicago condo. I initially reached out to Tony because I knew him as realtor who previously lived in my condo building and was instrumental in selling the units in the building when the building was just opened. When it came time for me to rent out my condo, I reached out to Tony because I felt that he had extensive knowledge of the property and of the South Loop area in general. I began the process of finding tenants during the Chicago cold winter months, but Tony did an excellent job of advertising my unit, scheduling showings, and identifying qualified tenants. I could not be more pleased with the service and professionalism that I experienced when working with Tony. Should I decide to sell my unit in the future, he will be the ONLY realtor that I would consider for the job.
I was a for sale by owner and could not sell my home for 6 months on my own. Tony called me and asked if he could evaluate my home for free. Even though I was hesitant, I thought why not? Tony’s suggestions proved to me he knew my area, and I decided to list my home with him. Well it was the best decision I made all year! Tony sold my south loop home during the premarketing faze before it even hit the MLS. Doing this saved me tons of hassle since we didn’t need to leave our home for endless showings of total strangers and agents. Time is worth money, but Tony sold the home for more than I had been trying to get on my own. All I can say is give this guy a chance. You will most likely be glad you did.
We chose Tony as our agent for purchasing our first home. He came highly recommended and lived up to expectations. He is extremely knowledgeable and helped coach us through the process. We began our search when inventories in our desired area were very low, and Tony kept us abreast of our options, making suggestions, and encouraging us through negotiations when we had to move very quickly once we found a place we liked. We plan to work with him again when we decide to buy or sell.
Anthony and I have done business together for many years. He is reliable, friendly and very knowledgable. His negotiations skills are excellent and I respect his opinion and advice. Thank you Anthony for many years of excellent customer service.
Tony is a great realtor and has been very honest, thoughtful, knowledgeable about our home buying process and real estate in Chicago. He had incredible patience with my wife and I while we looked for a condo in South Loop.
Tony is a Very resourceful gentleman – professional approach- deep network of connections to rent or list, particularly SouthLoop ! We only use Tony now because he comes through when others fail. Fast complete service.
