Patrick Fravel - Chicago South Loop Townhome Sale
We recently used WDW Properties to successfully sell our home in the Dearborn Park II neighborhood in the South Loop. Bill Wenthen was great to work with throughout the process. There were two things in particular that separated Bill from other realtors. First, he helped us correctly identify distinguishing features of our home versus inventory on the market and then focused on those features during his marketing activities (e.g. upgraded deck and bathrooms). Secondly, I didn't know this when we hired Bill but he has a killer email list of residents and prospective buyers he has developed over the years through his South Loop market newsletter. Our open house was EXTREMELY well attended as a result. We received two competitive offers within two days after the open house and ultimately obtained Bill's recommended initial asking price. THANK YOU BILL!

Bill helped me find my current residence in bucktown, he's very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and current market which was very helpful. I would recommend him to my closest friends.
Julie Vanderbilt - 1250 S Michigan sale, South Loop Chicago
Bill helped us sell our South Loop condominium in 2008 when the housing market was rapidly changing. He helped us get a good price quickly for our unit and worked hard to promote our place. Our children were very young at the time and he scheduled showings which fit into our restricted schedules.

Bill Wenthen is a fantastic agent. I checked the box “helped me sell a home,” but over the ten years I knew Bill he did so much more. I met Bill at a neighbor’s open house within the first month I moved into my townhome. Over the ten years I lived in my home, Bill was a great neighbor and a good friend, providing excellent contractor referrals, assuaging me when I was frustrated and thought I needed to move, he rented my home for me when I had to live out of town for a year, and without hesitating generously helped me with crazy chores like carrying a 100 lb. glass table into my house. Bill generally and literally helped me with any question I had about anything in my house or my neighborhood for a decade. That is why when I was really ready to sell, Bill got my listing. Clients can count on Bill to give excellent advice in the contracting process and to be a great sounding board when things become testy in the deal. He is excellent at working with all parties, at communicating, and at smoothing everything over. I give Bill my highest recommendations; you should give him your listing.

Bill, Thanks for your wonderful work as our agent and for connecting us with the people we needed each step of the way! We very much appreciate all of your guidance.
Marshal Slutsky – 1405 S Plymouth sale, Chicago
Many thanks for the outstanding job you did as my real estate agent. You not only sold my property at 1405 S Clark at a time when it was very difficult but in addition we received several offers and sold it at a very acceptable price. I witnessed a large number of perspective buyers and I believe it was your consistent marketing efforts that made this possible. Second, in the process of purchasing a new home you negotiated a contract with the developer who in turn gave us exactly what we asked for in upgrades as well as saving me thousands of dollars in the cost of the home. I certainly appreciated all of your excellent advice, as you are a professional who does what he says he is going to do. Many thanks for applying al of your abilities to my effort to relocate to a new home.
Julie Vanderbilt – 1250 S Michigan sale, Chicago
Bill was very enthusiastic about selling our home and it seemed that getting a good offer for us was his top priority. He was always available and was sensitive to the fact that we were living in our home at the time. He really listened to us and was very pleasant to work with. We were able to sell our place for a good price in a tough market thanks to Bill. We would definitely use him again as our Realtor.
Grace Castells, 1405 S Plymouth sale, Chicago
We used Bill Wenthen to sell our Dearborn Park 2 home recently. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about everything we needed to do in order to get the best offer and price possible. He knows the area well, and had excellent suggestions. We were not at all prepared to sell, and really needed guidance. He provided it, very professionally. His technical background is great as he was able to design very professional looking flyers and advertising. He aggressively marketed the house to the right people. I think we had only 2-3 open houses and sold in under a month. We couldn't have done it without him. He was always easy to reach, easy to talk to, and easy to work with. Gave it 110%. We couldn't recommend him more strongly.
Ann and Dan Nichols, West Loop, Chicago
Bill Wenthen was on top of the sale of our place from start to finish. No situation that came up was too unimportant for him to assist us with and he never made us feel like we were asking a 'dumb' question. His communication with us was excellent during the entire process and he closed the deal.
Andrew Hippard, Pilsen, Chicago
Bill provided expert real estate assistance during the preparation for sale and marketing of my 8 unit building. He brought in a large number of qualified buyers. Multiple offers came in and Bill was able to get a sale price higher than asking. Bill is a broker/owner, and the additional expertise is evident.
Ivy Chan, 1410 S Plymouth sale, Chicago
Bill, Thank you so much for your professional help in selling my house at 1410 South Plymouth. You are efficient and reliable. We received three offers after just one week on the market; your professional knowledge guided me through the bidding war as a winner.
Richard Sheehy, Lakeview
Bill aggressively marketed my home, bringing in a large amount of traffic, even during an off-peak season. With Bill's assistance, I received a good offer on my home, and negotiated an even better deal on the purchase of my new one.
