Client Love

Highly, highly recommend

I've been working very closely with Ashley as well as his counterpart, Paul Popp, for the last six months on investment properties downtown Chicago. His financial modeling and access to off-market properties are impressive, to say the least. After we identified the best property, his advice on how to structure the deal allowed us to quickly win the bid while maximizing ROI.

That's when his partner Paul Popp came in. Paul functions as the bridge between the buyer and the seller and facilitates the entire closing process. Whether it was an inspection, negotiation, legal review, or appraisal - Paul was there every step of the way providing his subject matter expertise.

Their team sets an unprecedented standard in customer service. They are more than just real estate agents, they become mentors to those interested in learning the industry. Highly, highly recommend for primary, secondary and especially investment real estate.

Very impressive!

Ashley and his team were very supportive during our home search and during the offer negotiation and closing process. There were multiple offers on the house we purchased and Ashley's guidance was critical to winning the deal, not by offering the highest bid but by establishing a personal connection with the seller. Very impressive!

Ashley and his team had our best interests in mind

Ashley and his team did an awesome job managing two separate deals simultaneously for our family. All along we felt confident knowing that Ashley and his team had our best interests in mind. I would highly recommend the Carter Group to anyone who is looking to buy or sell.

He went above and beyond

I had a great experience working with Ashley Carter to buy my three flat. As a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions along the way. Ashley and his team were extremely professional and responsive and had the experience to help me through all the bumps along the way. I highly recommend  Ashley Carter. He's generous with his time and made the whole experience smooth. He also knows his stuff-he invests real estate himself. He went above and beyond in continuing to support me with advice about how to rent my units even after the deal had closed.

A team like a family

What a wonderful experience working with Ashley Carter, Shannon Kelly, and Paul Popp .. We have been very lucky being a team with them,  a team like a family, taking care of everything.  Thank you!!

A great experience and a true partner

Ashley and his team provided amazing help to me in my purchase of a home in Elmhurst Illinois.  Ashley was with me every step of the way in searching for houses, and his extensive knowledge of the various school districts in the western suburbs was invaluable.  Ashley secured a home for us in the  Lincoln school district next to the Prarie Path in Elmhurst.  He provided crucial advice and creative ideas when it came time to submit an offer and negotiate with the seller to finalize the purchase.  His level-headed approach allowed me to get the deal done quickly and at a great price.  Ashley's team handled all of the small details and flawlessly executed every step from acceptance of an offer to the final closing date.  Most importantly, Ashley showed amazing patience fielding all of the questions that my wife and I posed and provided excellent guidance through the difficult decisions we faced.  Ashley and his team also sold my condos in Lincoln Park and Wrigleyville in coordination with the purchase of my home in the suburbs.  His expertise in the market in both the city and the suburbs made my transition out of the city easy, and my family could not have gone through the process without Ashley's unbelievable support. A great experience and a true partner in both the sale in the city and the purchase in Elmhurst.
