Comments from recent clients:
"Even if Peter Schuler had not shepherded our son and daughter-in-law through the purchase of the National Landmark Milliken House that Chicago Magazine then featured as the “Deal of the Month," or found them the outstanding contractor who beautifully restored it to its early 20th-century, Prairie elegance and updated it to their taste, and even if Peter were not, for all his discipline and reliability, engaged, interesting, easy and perfectly charming company, we would still owe him a world of gratitude for enlisting his impressive skills and extraordinary patience on our behalf. Caught as we are between cities and life phases, we have not been easy clients. Peter has listened flexibly to our ambivalent wishes, found a wide range of concrete alternatives and led us to contacts who could help us answer decision-determining questions. Peter is thrilled to be connected with Prudential Rubloff because it offers so many ancillary services that help him fulfill his client-centered sense of his work as a realtor. As long as we are looking for real estate in Chicago we will feel privileged and grateful to have his guidance."
- Herb and Sharon Meltzer
"Peter, very simply, helped me sell my Hyde Park condo in six months, after other agents failed to do so in double the amount of time! He did that through sound advice, respectful communication, constant alertness, refined behavior, endless patience, and broad knowledge of the housing market in Chicago. This was particularly valuable for me since I was not living in Chicago during the entire process. I would thus recommend Peter as highly as possible for anyone who wants or sell or purchase a property, especially in Chicago South. Trust me: you will be in extremely capable hands!"
- A professor emerita at The University of Chicago
"Peter is a fantastic resource. He listened carefully to what we were looking for and applied his block-by-block knowledge of Hyde Park to help us find our fabulous first home. As first-time buyers we had a lot of questions. Peter was thorough, supportive and patient in helping us understand every step of the process. We recommend him highly!"
- Eliza Bryant and Jessica Harless
“Peter's patience and encyclopedic knowledge of the Hyde Park area helped us find the perfect house. We were first-time home-buyers, and Peter "held our hand" throughout the entire process, and he continues to give us help and advice even well after we've completed the sale. We recommend him enthusiastically."
- Husband and wife faculty members at The University of Chicago
"Peter is a terrific agent. We were not sure of what we wanted and Peter showed us a wide range of properties to help us figure out our priorities. He is creative, knowledgeable, patient, and very easy to work with. We recommend him very highly!"
- Faculty member and spouse at The University of Chicago
"Peter is a reliable person. I was looking for a building for my religious purpose. It has been the last five years for my congregation to rent out places here and there. We really wanted to settle down by purchasing a place. But the former agent didn't know the area and I had to supply information about this area for him. But Peter carefully listened to us and understood our purposes and our needs in Hyde Park. He led us to buy the house that is affordable, suitable and spacious. If anyone is looking for an agent for finding a house, building or anything related to real estate, I recommend Peter. He will help you not only to buy what you need but also to find people who can help you to improve your house or office. One more thing, he would be patiently listening to you and what you need, yet he would not hesitate to give you his thoughts for you to see the better. In the meantime, he will be your friend and you will be his friend, too."
- Joshua Hong, Pastor of Hyde Park UBF church
"My husband and I moved from the North Shore to the city over a year ago. On our journey we met Peter Schuler at Prudential Rubloff. No words can describe the character and patience he showed us during this difficult transition. We started on Michigan Avenue and ended on Prairie Avenue/South Calumet. We never imagined we would be so happy in the area we call South Loop. Peter has been more than a real estate agent to us because he actually listened to our complicated story and tried to help us through this journey we call life. We have the utmost respect for him as he had the tools to lead us and stay with us during all the bumps in the road. We highly recommend Prudential Rubloff if you need to transition in life, based on the experience we had with Peter Schuler."
