What My Clients Have To Say
Yogi was a terrific help in assisting our sale and closing Thank you Yogi
yogi is knowledgeable of the market and quick to respond; he managed the sales well and was always ready to work the potential buyers. He is a great owners rep and advocate
Yogi is a straight-shooter. You may not always like what he has to say, but I found him to be honest and hard-working. I had to switch from an agent who only told me what I wanted to hear to someone who actually got me results. Yogi was that agent for me.
My wife and I recently purchased a property in the Lakeview neighborhood after looking for almost two years. Yogi Yedlin was our agent during this time and we could not have been happier throughout the process with him. There are a number of reasons why we feel this way and would like to share them with you.
Both my wife and I owned condominiums in the Lakeview neighborhood and were looking to upgrade to more space since we just got married. With the advent of a lot of new websites in the real estate market the process of finding a new agent came to us this time instead of us having to look for one. Of all the websites that we looked at, DreamTown. com was one of the best out there for looking for a home in our opinion. On one particular day we had made two appointments with two different agents out of frustration. Our second appointment that day turned out much better than we anticipated. This second appointment was with Yogi.
Within the first couple minutes of talking with Yogi I knew that he was different than all the previous agents we had worked with. We truly appreciated this attention to detail as it really gave us a new perspective on how to look for a home.
Another trait of Yogi's that became evident over time was patience. We were very close to making a decision and Yogi did not pressure us, but gave us a list of things to think about that were important. At this point we told Yogi that we would get back to him in a couple months as we were putting out search on hold. A few months later we were back out searching for properties. This time we had a different set of criteria.
This is where I have no idea how Yogi kept his patience. We decided that we could move to the next property level by bringing my wife's sister and husband in the mix. On top of that, since their family is close knit, Yogi now had to deal with six people as my wife's parents were now coming along to look at properties.
After a couple months we put an offer in on a place. However, everything fell apart prior to coming to a decision about the place. We had an inspection which Yogi came to and helped us through which was great. In the end, after many negotiations and discussions this deal fell through.
We were determined to not strike out with our third attempt. This time my wife's sister was out of the picture and it was back to just the two of us and again the criteria changed. In the end, we found the place that suits us best and we could not be happier. Yogi did a great job of meeting our expectations and working with us to get the best purchase price. After having lived in our home for a few months we could not be happier. All the credit goes to Yogi for this because it was his professionalism, patience and understanding of our changing needs that made this a very pleasant experience. My wife and I kept changing the rules of the game along the way and Yogi stepped up each time with a great attitude and a willingness to work with us that I wish I could find in other professional aspects of my life. My wife and I would (and will) happily recommend Yogi in the future to anyone we know looking to buy and sell a home.

Yogi was extremely helpful during the entire home buying process. As first-time buyers, we were unprepared for a lot of the details involved. Yogi kept us on track with his organizational skills and represented us in the best way possible at every turn. He made himself accessible for questions and wasn't shy about offering his opinions. We will be recommending him ----and the rest of Dream Town ---- to many friends. Chris Lambert and Katie Motchan, Bucktown
We would strongly recommend Yogi to anyone interested in purchasing a home. He worked with our schedule and took the time to show several condos in multiple neighborhoods until we found the place that was right for us. He went far beyond simply showing homes. He walked us through the entire buying process and gave great advice along the way, helping us to make informed decisions.
He was always available to answer questions and went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that the process went smoothly from initial offer to closing. Yogi's explanations and advice helped us feel very comfortable with our decisions and were invaluable in helping us to find a great first home.
Thanks for everything,
Andre and Cari, Bucktown
Yogi is extremely knowledgeable about the home buying process, really on top of things, and a pleasure to work with. He's also patient and happy to answer questions. I'd recommend him to anyone who is buying a home, whether they're buying for the first time or the fortieth time.
Sara, South Loop
Yogi is friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and reliable. He was an honest and aggressive advocate during every phase of my search and purchase. I would recommend Yogi to any friend. He truly made buying my first home an enjoyable experience.
Eric Winstrom, Lincoln Park
Yogi Yedlin was extremely competent and diligent in finding a buyer for my condo in order for me to purchase a new property in a timely manner. Every detail was attended to, including helping with moving and countless other tasks so that my transition was smooth and carefree. Everything about the process was successful and positive and I would use him again in the future.
Dorothy Andrich, Gold Coast
Yogi tirelessly worked with us over the course of two years to do research, educate, and offer guidance regarding the pre-construction South Loop unit we now absolutely enjoy. Whether it was a quick e-mail or a face-to-face meeting over coffee, Yogi always provided us with great insights that truly reflected our current and future needs. From the first phone conversation to our closing Yogi was always there for us.
Yogi is still in our lives too. He is helping us work through punch-list items that always accompany new construction. I can assure you that Yogi will play a central role in our next purchase as well.
Dan White & Gianie Perez, South Loop
I wanted to say thank you for all of your assistance as I went through the process of searching and closing on the new condo. You helped me narrow down my area of focus and land me a great space on a tiny budget. And you did it all so patiently, always making me feel like a priority client. Throughout, you went above and beyond. You were flexible to accommodate my schedule during showings and made sure that I was comfortable and everything was on track during closing. I would absolutely recommend you to friends and coworkers. Your friendly and professional demeanor made you a real pleasure to work with. Thanks Yogi!
Anna Testa, Gold Coast
Thanks Yogi for your responsiveness through the home buying process. As a first-time home-buyer, I had many questions and all your answers were thorough and timely. I am very pleased with my final purchase because of your guidance and support. We found exactly what I was hoping for and more. . .
Julie Surma, Lakeview
I had a great experience with Dream Town. I was new to Chicago, and they gave me honest information about the pros and cons of different neighborhoods and building types. They listened closely to what I wanted and really confined our search to places that matched my priorities. Because my agent Yogi knew what I was looking for, he knew the instant he saw the listing for my place that it was what I was looking for. And he was right! He was helpful throughout the bidding and closing process, which was very important for me as a first-time homebuyer. Thanks Yogi and Dream Town!
We want to thank Yogi for the personal treatment and for helping us find the house of our dreams. With his patience and knowledge, we are sure that we found the best investment for us.
Idan Levi, Lakeview
Our condo search with Dream Town was exactly as we had hoped. Yogi was instrumental in the process, as he showed us many different properties to base our decision and provided excellent guidance for our first condo purchase. We love our new residence and would recommend Dream Town to others starting their home search!
Joe and Jill DeRoy, North Center
As first time home buyers we were a little anxious but we gave Yogi our search criteria and basically he took care of the rest. . . it was as easy as that!!!
Yogi was very accommodating to all of my needs. He did a great job helping me find properties that would suit my needs and provided plenty of advice that aided me as a first time buyer. He was very responsive to my questions and concerns and worked around my schedule to find time to show me properties. He definitely helped to make the whole process much easier.
Kyle Bang, Lincoln Park
Now that we are all unpacked and settled in at our new home, we wanted to take a moment to thank you and Dream Town for everything! You were always so quick to return our phone calls and emails; we really appreciated that! From the first time we visited the Dream Town website, our experience as first time home buyers has been ideal. We used the website to chat with a Dream Town representative, who put us in contact with you! The rest is history - you showed us homes based on our priorities, helped us make an offer on the home we wanted, and continued to assist us, all the way to the day we closed! Thank you again for making this such a positive experience!
Jeff & Davonna Thomas, Rogers Park
I worked with Yogi on the selling side as well as the buying side of the real estate process and the experience was truly valuable and rewarding. My previous experience with a real estate agent was fine but I never really felt like the agent was attentive to my requests and needs. Yogi was a welcomed change in that he was always eager to show me properties that met my requirements which meant accommodating my ever changing search criteria and varying geographic locations throughout the city. When I finally found a property I wanted to buy, again he showed his dedication to his client's needs and his knowledge of the real estate process by being thorough when explaining the process, by working with the seller to negotiate on price and other concessions, and by being patient, even when the process ended up being much longer than the normal process. In the end Yogi proved to be a great real estate agent, showing a friendly, knowledgeable, and focused attention to the client.
