In the past 5 years I have used Joe Siwinski and the Lincolnway team for 3 home purchases, 2 home sales and 1 refinance. On my recommendation, Joe and his team also handled my mother's sale and purchase, a sale and an indirect purchase for my sister. Joe and his team are the best. I trust in Joe and the entire Lincolnway team's experience and expertise and I wouldn't work with anyone else. We closed on my last purchase in less than 6 weeks and I had my clear to close a week early. They know their business, they take care of their customers and they stand by their word.
I don't give people repeat business unless I feel like I can truly trust them, and I don't give recommendations lightly. So when I say I HIGHLY recommend Joe Siwinski, and his entire team, you can be sure I mean it!
"Joe's team makes the selling process easy. I loved the how easy the showing time app was to schedule my own appointments. The team priced my house to sell and it sold in about 2 weeks!"
Wendi was very attentive - answered each call no matter what the time was or the day. Their flat fee was the reason we chose them,and our home had over 10 showings in the first four days, two offers, and a contract by the fifth day for our asking price!
"This is our second time working with the team at Lincoln-Way Realty. Our primary contact was Wendi Reid, but we also had the pleasure of working with Bonnie and Joe as well. This time around we sold and bought homes. The moving process is stressful no matter what the circumstance, but working with Lincoln-Way is always a smooth process. They are very timely and are ready and willing to take calls at all hours of the day. They answered EVERY question we had throughout the process. Wendi is a pleasure to see houses with and she keeps the process fun! She also really considers your wants and needs, at times throughout the process she would remind us what it is we needed out of a home. She was only able to do that because she really listened and understood the needs of our family. I highly recommend Lincoln-Way Realty to anyone in the area looking to sell or buy a home."
Not only was I very impressed with Joe Siwinski but the cost savings were amazing. We saved so much money with the best service. Joe is true to his word and the $2,500 is payable at closing. I recommend Joe and his team for anyone looking to sell or buy a home. Don't be fooled by big shot brokers that only see you as a dollar amount. Joe and his team cares about their clients. Choose Team Joseph Siwinski!
Our experience with Joe was first-rate. He is straightforward, reliable and experienced. During the entire process we felt confident with Joe and his staff. When we thought we were encountering an obstacle, Joe always pointed out a solution. This will be our first choice for any future realty/funding needs, and we have already recommended family and friends.
Just wanted to mention that I have used all of the “hot shot” real estate agents out there in the past and Lincoln Way Realty has far and away outperformed the others with regard to follow up, feedback, professionalism, and scheduling of showings. Just thought you should know.
We were looking for a real estate broker that was very familiar with the area that we were interested in. Lincoln-Way fit our needs perfectly. Both Wendi and Linda live and work in Mokena. Wendi grew up there as well. Both knew everything that we needed to know about the community from the schools to the local restaurants ! They were both available, knowledgeable and very patient with us as they helped us with our important decision. Not only did we find the perfect agents, they are now our friends and neighbors. Thanks again!

Thank you so much to Joe and his Lincoln Way Realty Team. You made the purchase of our NEW house, so easy!! From showings, to the contract, to financing... TOP NOTCH service all the way!! and Joe saved us so much money on our financing... your AMAZING and we're so thankful for all of you!!
I just wanted to drop you a note, to tell you of my appreciation for going the extra mile for me. Not only did you sell my house, you were able to find a place for me, that suited me so well. I am so happy to have had you as my real estate agents. You took so much time with me. I do not think any other real estate agent would have been as sincere with me. Letting me know when something wasn't as good as it looked. You were more concerned in getting me a good property, and not just getting the sale. I hope you have a great year.
Once again I want to tell you how wonderful your company is. Everyone we dealt with at Lincoln-Way Realty was very courteous, caring and professional. Whatever we asked for, we received. Your group worked really hard for us, and we are really grateful. You are running a top notch company.
AND when we went to the closing we had another surprise. You gave us quite a discount on the title insurance. Thank you, Joe. You are a very smart, energetic and generous young (I can still use that term!) man. You are very successful already, and I can see why.
I will always recommend Lincoln-Way Realty to everyone I know. You cannot be beat! The proof is in the closing process--we could not beat the personal attention we got for the little money we spent to sell our house. You guys are top notch! Thank you for all you did for us.

Very professional and competent. A pleasure to work with. Helped me through the entire process, gave guidance on the beginning listing price, as well as reductions as time passed. Always prompt with feedback after showings and very helpful as we worked through the issues discovered during the buyers inspection report.
Thank you so much to Joe and his Lincoln-Way Realty Team! You made the purchase of our NEW house, so easy!! From showings, to the contract, to closing... TOP NOTCH service all the way!
Joe knows the area so well he is able to assist in helping you find the best neighborhood for your family. He assisted me, as a seller, to get make the small changes needed to make the house sell more quickly. He genuinely has his clients best interest a heart!! Whenever I needed to contact him about something and he wasn't available to take my call his colleagues or office assistants were there to help
Mr. Siwinski was very helpful in listening to our needs and locating a home that had everything in it we were looking for. He is very knowledgeable about what to expect at closing so there were no surprises. The were no hiccups in either the home we were buying nor the one we sold.
5 star review!! Joe has extensive experience in both the real estate market and the mortgage market. He is knowledgeable and professional. I recommend that you follow his and his teams advice for the best experience whether you are buying or selling. Joe found the right home within my budget in the perfect location for me. When I was ready to sell he and his team priced it right and gave good suggestions on how to prepare the home for sale. His team listened to what we wanted in our next home and helped us find the right house quickly.
The entire Lincolnway Realty team was great. Joe and Wendi were extremely helpful throughout the whole process. But everybody that we dealt with was equally as helpful. We sold our house a couple years ago and just recently bought a house through Lincolnway Realty. We liked that Joe and his team were straightforward and always available. They made us feel comfortable and their fees cannot be beat. We would definitely recommend Lincolnway Realty and Joseph Siwinski.
Joe represented us in the sale of our townhome and the purchase of our home. During the negotiation of the sale of the townhome price became an issue as in most sales! After numerous discussions between and Joe and I, he made very good points to accept the sale price which in fact came true a few following the closing. Without his experience and knowledge of the area we may have not sold as quickly and for the final amount we closed at.
Joe and the entire team were very professional and knowledgeable. But the personal attention and kindness were what I appreciated most. Selling a home can be an emotional experience. Joe understood this and made the process easy and seamless. A combination of a heart of gold and a great sense of the area and the real estate market, make Joe and the LW Realty team the #1 choice for any of your property needs. With gratitude to you all, we now also have friends at LW Realty!
Just wanted to say thank you so much to Joe and his team! What a wonderful group of people! Not only did they help sell our townhouse in just 18 short days, they helped us find our forever home! I'd highly recommend them!
I have bought and sold a house through Joe. He understood what we needed in a home and wouldn't let us settle for something with which we wouldn't be happy. When selling I got a buyer fast for a really good price. There is a wealth of experience and skill under a relaxed appearance. I wouldn't buy or sell from anyone else.
Joe and his team have helped me a great deal over the past 4 years. When I first connected with Joe my family and I were renting an apartment his team manages. Shortly there after they helped us with the purchase of a short sale in 2012. I heard nothing but horror stories about buying a short sale but the entire process went surprisingly quick and smooth all the way through the closing. Two years and an additional family member later we needed more space and decided to sell. Joe had a contract on my home within a week, for our full asking price. His team helped my family find our next home and we closed on both houses on the same day! I was so pleased with Joe and his team that I recommended him to my mother and just this past summer, they listed and sold her home within 3 weeks of it going on the market and helped her find another home...again closing on both homes on the same day. Joe and his team make the process easy to navigate and easy to understand. I would use him again and recommend him whenever I can!
I was happy with the service I received from both Lincoln Way Realty and MBLO Funding. They handled the sale of my house as well as with the purchase and funding of my new house. I would and already recommended Joe and his group.
Joe is a wonderful realtor. He went above and beyond to sell our home. As we nearness closing, our buyers almost backed out, but Joe was willing to do whatever it took to make sure the sale went through. I would certainly recommend him to anyone.
Joe and the entire LW Realty team were professional and kind. They were prompt and accurate. From listing to closing, every question was answered and al our needs were met. Joe has an extensive knowledge of the market in this area. He came to me highly recommended by several folks that I asked their opinion. His flat rate fee is thoughtful. He cares about his clients The calls and showings came pouring in once we listed with LWR. Even had a showing a few hours after the listing went live. We had 14+ showings and sold in 3 days. The LWR team made the process smooth Joe even gave us a call a week or so after the closing to make sure everything went well and that we were satisfied. Above and beyond customer service and attention to detail. Joe and the LWR team are my recommendation for all you realty or property management needs.
"Over the past 4 years Joe and his team have helped me purchase 2 homes and sell one. I was so pleased with his service that I recommended him to my mother, and he helped her sell her home and close on her purchase on the same day. My sale had a contract in less than a week and my mothers was less than 2 weeks. Joe makes the process easy to negotiate and easy to understand and his team is incredibly helpful working through the process of finding, financing and buying a home."
Joe was excellent to work with, he and his team got us an offer after only 5 days and we sold at the price we wanted. The entire selling process was smooth, from the professional photographer they sent out to the showing app they used to schedule walk-throughs. And the flat fee payable at closing was exactly as stated. When it came to buying, both he and Wendi worked with us to negotiate the exact wooded property we wanted. We could not be happier with the purchase, 5 stars all around with no problem ever giving referrals.
Joe and his whole team were incredible to work with. My wife and I were first time home buyers and Joe made the process painless. I was worried because of how smooth everything went and I expected something to go wrong, IT NEVER DID. I cannot imagine using anyone other than Joe and I recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. Joe is the best around.
Joe is very professional, he responds quickly and made sure we knew all the details of our listing and sale. He knows all the ins and outs of selling and buying and made sure we well informed throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend Joe and his company if you need to buy or sell your property
Joe and his team were quick and responsive in posting my house for sale and had a lot of great suggestions and feedback. Their program helped me save quite a bit over the regular 2.5%.
I have known Joe for several years and have worked with Joe to both buy and sell my homes. Joe and his team are great to work with and have very good insight on the local market. Our house was under contract in less than 1 week and it truly had a lot to do with their marketing and knowledge of the industry; not to mention was cheaper than any other realtor I have ever spoke with. I would (and do) recommend Lincoln-Way Realty and Joe Siwinski.
Joe and his staff go above and beyond. He always, always returns your calls and addresses issues you may have appropriately and without hesitation. I would, hands down, recommend Joe for any real estate decisions you may have. He also found our son his house, and we had refinanced with him in the past. He actually met us on a Sunday at his office for us to accept a bid that was given on the home we were selling. Very personable and easy to talk to.
Joe helped us through a lot trying to get our house! He would sit us down and explain what ever we wanted to hear. No questions went unanswered! He takes pride in what he does and it shows through his actions. Thanks to him I am in a house with a fair deal. Thanks Joe!
Very professional and competent. I pleasure to work with. Help me through the entire process, gave guidance on the beginning listing price, as well as reductions as time passed. always prompt with feedback after showings and very helpful as we worked through the issues discovered during the buyers inspection report.
Lincoln-Way Realty came out, explained their program, provided comparable real estate sales in my area to determine the correct asking price for a quick sale. Their photographer took pictures and my home was listed on the MLS within a week with a perfect description and beautiful pictures. We chose Lincoln-Way Realty after getting several recommendations. Lincoln-way was right-on with the sale price. We had a firm offer in 3 days. Add to that, the Lincoln-Way-Realty flat rate listing fee, we were able to save a considerable amount on commission!
I highly recommend Joe and his entire Lincoln-Way Realty team. They responded quickly to list our property and created a well-written description with attractive photographs. Joe is very knowledgeable and acted professionally from our initial contact through the entire sales process. I greatly appreciated his personal attention and assistance while listing our property, including the activity app used to schedule showings and review agent comments. I selected Joe to list our property because of his knowledge of the area, his lifetime association with and commitment to the community, and his working relationships with other real estate agents and local contractors. While some potential buyers were concerned about the deferred maintenance, Joe's persistence and networking provided a buyer for our house. Joe excelled at coordinating the sale of our property, saving me significant money and honoring his flat sales commission.
We listed with Joe Siwinski on a referral from a co-worker. They made everything about the process of listing and selling a house easy. All of the team members were great to work with. They answered many of our questions promptly and were very understanding when it came to negotiating to our needs.
"We were extremely impressed with the quality of the service that we received from Lincoln-Way Reality. Joseph Siwinski, Bonnie Sullivan, and Wendi Reid worked as a team and were extremely professional and knowledgeable throughout our process. We purchased a townhome with them and they also sold our townhome. We would highly recommend Lincoln-Way Reality to friends and family. The team went above and beyond to help put both deals together for us, we couldn't be more pleased with their services. We will certainly use them in the future. Thank you for a great experience."
"Lincoln-Way Realty came to our first meeting with their homework done and answers to any questions we had about selling our home. They were honest, realistic, and got the job done. What we appreciated the most was their willingness and availability to talk to us after we listed with them. ....they always answered the phone or got back to us with in hours. We are so grateful to Lincoln-Way Realty for helping us make our dreams come true"
