Read what our clients have to say.


Axel was an absolute pleasure to work with! His personal touch and attention to detail made us comfortable through the entire house-hunting process. Never pushing us in one direction, but confident enough to provide his advice when we asked his opinion on locations around Chicago, property values and all of the factors that mattered most (walkability, taxes, public transportation, etc.) Axel's negotiation skills are top notch. Knowing we had found the condo we wanted the most, he worked tirelessly to negotiate with the sellers and their Agent to make this deal happen. On a personal level, Axel is thoughtful, always reaching out on our anniversary and birthdays even before the house-hunting process began. 5 Starts doesn't do Axel enough justice. I strongly recommend to working with Axel Cohen on your next purchase or lease!

Axel is incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and patient. In the past he has helped me to find multiple apartments to rent. Most recently he he was instrumental in the purchase of a home for my wife and me. We tend to be picky in our interests and thorough in our diligence, and Axel did an exceptional job not only finding us homes that fit our preferences but he was also endlessly patient while we narrowed down our choices. He knows the local area very well and gave us an unbiased list of pros and cons in virtually every neighborhood in the city. Finally, he was a huge value add in the price negotiation and closing process. We definitely feel as though he always took our interests and needs to heart, and fought for us every step of the way.


If you need a true expert in your real estate needs- Axel is your man! He is great in all aspects in this field. Not only he is knowledgeable, professional, super helpful, but also very personable and humble. Axel helped us a few times in our journey already. The move from nyc was already challenging ( hence, we had a 2 year old, and 3 dogs) but he was there to help us! He found us perfect home very quickly. We are truly blessed to have gotten to know Axel. A few years later, it was a time for us to move again ( hence, another baby ) and he was there again. We are looking forward to another adventure with him! Thank you Axel! You are one of a kind!

Moved over from Germany and he helped me finding a place to rent - Very flexible in timing, has excellent relationships with all buildings - Spent a lot of time at the beginning to discuss my preferences and to really get to know me so he can choose the right place for me - Highly knowledgeable about all neighborhoods, restaurant scene, ongoing/upcoming constructions, history of buildings, views, noise levels etc. - Involved and helpful during application process and even after move-in - All in all, I would strongly recommend him to friends and everyone who needs to find a place to rent in Chicago! Best real estate service I have ever received.

I'm not sure if there is enough space here for me to properly explain how amazing Axel is. He is beyond knowledgeable in this space, he listened to exactly what I was looking for and adjusted based on my thoughts and feelings on every place we saw. He knew every question to ask that I never would including questions about construction and foundation of buildings that played a key factor in my decision. Not to mention, in 2 months of working together I never heard his voicemail message. He's also an absolute pleasure to deal with. He made the process so easy and kept my stress level way lower than I could have asked for.


Excellent service from Axel! Our search was lengthy, due to multiple difficulties (moving from a foreign countries without much experience in the area, potential landlords asking for impossible documents, our particular needs in terms of location, facilities, amenities), but Axel was really patient and helpful all along. And he helped us land an awesome deal, with a perfect match to our needs, and also to the best preferences of the landlords. We may be lucky too, but Axel definitely contributed a lot to it. We'll definitely get back to him next time.

Axel has been instrumental in our real estate transactions over the last five years. His ability to really get to know and understand his clients needs/wants (and without us explicating saying) has helped us find not only our first home but also our family home. His knowledge of the Chicago market is unparalleled and he has every resource at his disposal for his clients, from lender recommendations to home inspectors and more. We have become very close to Axel and his family and hope to continue to do business with him for many many years to come.


Axel was amazing throughout the entire homebuying process. I cannot speak more highly of him and of the experience my wife and I had with him as our broker. As first time homebuyers, we had millions of questions and concerns - Axel did an unbelievable job explaining everything (repeatedly, as needed) and made sure we were comfortable and knowledgeable thru every step along the way. He gave amazing recommendations and I truly trust him and value his advice and expertise. I would highly recommend Axel for any of your real estate needs.

I have been working with Axel for almost 5 years, and he has helped me find 4 rentals, all in different towns across the city. What I appreciate most about Axel is his honest opinion and candid feedback. He has always impressed me with the options he provides which fulfill what I am looking for in a rental property. Axel is extremely personable and always available to answer any questions. Whenever I have a friend or family member searching for a new home, Axel is always the agent I recommend they reach out to!

Meagan M.

Axel was very helpful in finding the perfect new home for my boyfriend and I. He showed us a range of options based on what we were looking for, was completely honest throughout the whole process and shared valuable insight without trying to sway us a certain way. Axel was extremely responsive throughout the whole process, from start to completion, helping us with an issues we were having with negotiations and dealing with our land lord. We will always be using Axel in our future purchases!
