“We appreciate the assistance Hasani Steele provided our church in the process of land acquisition for development of a community center in the Washington Park area. Hasani’s expertise and knowledge of the area combined with his step-by-step guidance through the process enabled us to expedite agreement with the seller to accomplish this transaction.
From the start, Hasani was approachable and we found him to be extremely easy to work with. At all times, Hasani and his staff, Jennifer and Annie were professional, prompt in responding and demonstrated a genuine interest in our project.
We look forward to working with the Steele Consulting Group in the future.”

“Thank you for taking so much of your valuable time to assist with the purchase of our home this month. We know that we were very demanding as well as obnoxious at times, but we wanted to share with you that without your support and that of your team- and your focused confidence in the process, we would have wavered and moved on (in fact we gave up at least three times). We will be recommending your organization to all we come into contact with. Your commitment to the success of our search and subsequent purchase was a testament to what customers strive for in their relationships!”
- Calvin Gooch
“I remember our first conversation when another friend in the business was urging us to get a 4-flat. You very respectfully reframed the conversation and allowed us to share some of our priorities and preferences. You certainly made us feel heard and at the same time helped us to set realistic expectations. The process you led us through was very sound – first drafting preferences, then scouring the MLS, followed by driving by properties, then seeing them, and finally walking through the whole purchase process. Any time we wanted to go back out looking at other houses, you were quick to set that up. I think when we really saw the difference in working with you versus any other agent was when the process got difficult, you stayed calm and steady and gave great advice. Even at times when our deal seemed to be dead, you helped us find solutions.
Thank you very much and we hope to stay in touch both professionally and personally.”
- Peter Bernthal
“I hope that we can do business in the future and many more. Business transactions go much easier when you deal with another business, educated professional like yourself. Thank you so much!”

“Thanks for your assistance in liquidating this OREO property. Your patience and professionalism was tested severely with all the obstacles we had to endure during the course of this listing and subsequent sale. Feel free to use me as a referral with any of your potential customers. The Motorola Employees Credit Union (MECU) was very pleased with your performance and that of your support staff. Your staff was very responsive to our requests and needs. They always performed in a timely and professional manner. It was this performance that made the overall experience tolerable. None of the problems that were experienced were as a result of anything your staff did; in fact they displayed excellent patience and tact in handling the numerous problems we both have experienced. All is well that ends well.”

“Hasani Steele and I have worked together for the past several years in dealing with mutual clients. When one of my clients is working with Hasani as their real estate agent, I know that they are in good hands. Not only does he know the real estate market, he understands how exciting, yet stressful, it can be to buy or sell a home. He is there to assist his clients with all aspects of the transaction and with answering any questions or concerns they may have. As the attorney assisting his clients, Hasani makes my job easier. He makes sure that I am always informed with what is going on with the transaction and if I have questions, he answers my questions in a timely fashion so that I am better able to communicate with the other side. Hasani also has an amazing support staff who is there to get me anything that I need. If you are looking for a real estate agent, you would be hard-pressed to find one better than Hasani.”
- Lisa Raimondi
“I wanted to take the time to express my gratitude to Hasani Steele and the entire Steele Consulting Group, especially Jen Leoni, in regards to the outstanding service provided to me while shopping for my home. Hasani is the consummate professional. I value the time he took at the onset of this home search process by taking the time to truly understand what kind of property I wanted. I’m sure this helped the entire process go much smoother. The automated listings I received were exactly what I wanted, however Hasani went a step further and created a list within my list that he knew would be the best fit for me. Additionally, Hasani worked well with the mortgage consultant and attorney and they all gave me the attention and assistance that I needed above and beyond my expectations.
This entire experience in purchasing my first home was so fulfilling. I would recommend the Steele Consulting Group to my friends and co-workers in a heart beat.
Thank you again Hasani and Jen. It’s been a pleasure working with you both. I greatly appreciate all of your hard work and efforts. I am extremely satisfied and looking forward to enjoying my home.”
- Natanya Brown
“Hasani has the real estate business down to a science, yet he personalizes the experience and brings the human-side into the mix from the moment you meet him. He simplified every complex aspect of the home purchase. He and his team were informative, knowledgeable, and readily available to answer any questions throughout the process. We were very open-minded in terms of neighborhood and amenities, which added to the complexity of our search. Not only was Hasani patient, but he was supportive and resourceful. Thanks to the exhaustive listings and refined, thoughtful search parameters set by Hasani, we were able to find our dream home in less time than we ever imagined.”
- Cathleen Cooke and Zak Albudri
“My husband and I bought our home this year and are truly grateful for Hasani and his team! Hasani and team was always responsive, very helpful, knowledgeable and informative in every step of our home search process. We highly recommend Steele Consulting Group!”
- Jeff and Adrianne Shipley
“Hasani Steele is a true professional, and has done exceptional work for me in leasing and selling my properties.”
- Joe Camaioni
“I happened to find Hasani Steele by blind luck, when we met for a showing at one of his properties in January. Having Mr. Steele as my agent was not only a positive experience but a god-send, as the rest of my home purchasing experience was anything but. Mr. Steele went way above and beyond to explain the process, get me the best property at the best price, and work with my lender and attorney, who were extremely difficult to say the least, to close the sale. Throughout the process, Mr. Steele’s knowledge and professionalism were the only two things I could count on. If asked by a relative, friend, or University of Chicago colleague, I would gladly recommend Mr. Steele and his stellar staff without hesitation.
There are not enough accolades that I could possibly heap on Hasani, Jennifer and Annie that could properly express the gratitude and respect I have for everything they did for my family and me. The best I can do is to express my sincere thanks to Mr. Steele and his staff for their endless patience, generosity with their time, and for all of their excellent advice and insight which, by the way, was always on point. Thanks again!”

“Yours is a very professional office, with a great team in place. That is unmistakable. Please know that I don’t say these things just to flatter, but this is truly what I see. I think I made an excellent choice in finding Steele Consulting Group. Amazingly Jim Colucci exemplifies that same standard of excellence. As I stated above, we had the best talk and he gave me some helpful suggestions regarding my own personal RE goals. Jim also gave some insight as to where you guys are headed as a team, and I see clearly that you are all a team of people who are on a selfless mission of service to others. Your team has lofty goals designed to educate and mentor others to open their eyes to the possibilities that exist for them in RE, which in turn will spawn home ownership for many. I applaud your goals and your efforts to attain those objectives. I know you will be successful in those pursuits. You have an awesome team in place and I wish you all the very best.
In my own way, slowly but surely, I too hope to make a difference in the lives of others, and I am encouraged by what I see in you, Jim, and the entire team, at least the one’s I have interacted with, which includes Jen and Annie. Again, thank you for everything, and I am still holding out hope that I am able to get the house at some point, but whether I do, or I don’t, with a little patience and continued research something great will happen sooner or later. There are exciting times ahead and I can’t wait! Hasani, thanks for caring about my dream, and I appreciate the time that You, Jen, Annie, Barb, and Jim invested in preparing us to make an offer. I learned a lot. Oh, and by the way, my husband also saw in you what I see in you, and he’s not easily impressed.”

“…After pondering the idea of purchasing property, I decided to call the Steele Consulting Group of @ Properties … I would describe my experience with Mr. Hasani Steele as enlightening because he would encourage me to have a positive attitude; he knew from experience certain situations would be inevitable. Yet he worked very diligently, so that I could have a smooth transition in purchasing property. I was equally impressed with his dedication to his profession as well as how personable he was with me. He was so informative because he educated me on several programs available to first-buyers. He explicitly explained the total costs involved with purchasing property. I would certainly recommend Mr. Steele to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home. Overall, I consider myself a highly satisfied home-buyer. Keep up the excellent work!”
- Anissa Robinson
“Our firm has completed many real estate transactions with Hasani over the years. Hasani is extremely knowledgeable about the Chicago market and the areas that he serves. He is well respected and exudes trust and excellence. His professionalism shines through with each meeting and I would recommend him to anyone looking to perform a transaction.”
- Craig Hogan
“I finally have a moment to send a note of thanks. I truly appreciate your patience with me throughout the process of purchasing my first home. It really helped having someone knowledgable and experienced to assist me, particularly in dealing with the south side of the city. I honestly took everything you told me to heart in making my final decision–from keeping an eye out on the quality of the workmanship to the location to where to fit furniture. All of it was truly helpful.”
- Nick Cummings
“I have had the sincere pleasure of working with Hasani and the Steel Consulting Group for over 6 months. I have found them be very professional, compassionate and attentive to their clients needs. They also offer the some of the city’s best proprieties for sale; with breath-taking views, fantastic amenities and convenient locations located throughout Chicago-land area.”
- Chester Bell
“My wife and I were very happy with the level of service we received from Hasani. He had many creative, effective ideas that gave our listing an edge over other properties on the market. We also appreciated having him in our corner as we searched for and purchased our new home. His involvement and his insights helped make a confusing, stressful experience entirely manageable. From beginning to end we felt that Hasani was working hard for us. Above all, we were impressed that he always made time to discuss things with us and answer questions. We will definitely go back to Hasani for our next move.”
- Matt Sorem
“Hasani is the ultimate example of hard work getting results. He’s a true professional, and I enjoy working with him immensely. I recommend him to anyone.”

“Being from out of town, we contacted a friend who lives in Chicago, and she recommended Hasani Steele. We contacted Hasani’s office, and right away I could tell that this office has their act together. They immediately asked us all the necessary questions, and we arranged to come into town on several weekends to look at properties. Hasani had several appointments lined up each time and made very efficient use of our time. He really knows the Chicago real estate market. We found a great property on the second weekend that we just recently closed on. Hasani was with us all he way and even gave us a great suggestion on an attorney to use. If you’re going to buy/sell/rent/or lease property in Chicago, you want to use Hasani Steele!”

“Hasani is an oustanding real estate professional. This is the third residential transaction Hasani has completed for me. In one week, he found two interested parties for my condo. His diligent work captured full rent and an on time move-in. Hasani provided excellent advice and guidance throughout the process. Through his great results, he proved he knows the East Lakeview market incredibly well.”

We started this journey on January 7th, 2011 and ended it on January 6th, 2012. And in the end, I could not be happier with the home we found, the rate we got, the mortgage team we used, Lisa Raimondi on closing day, and all the others like Jen and Annie that helped along the way and most importantly, all the help and time that Hasani put into this for us. All the showings, all the time we spent in cars going from one place to another. All the laughs we shared in homes that smelled like rotten people, rotten cigarette smoke, kitchens that were from the Paleolithic Era….etc.
Nothing but love to all, it was very impressive to see all the hard work that was put into this for Lisa and I’s first home, a nice PBJ sandwich turned into a Thanksgiving Feast. We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

“Years ago, my father and I had a development that was slumping in sales due to a bad decision in the sales team. Over breakfast one morning, discussing our strategy, Hasani Steele’s picture appeared as the Top Producer for the highly reputable Real Estate sales & marketing company: @properties. We felt his Northwestern University education, coupled with his strong sales ability, would be perfect. Additionally, we felt a competitive fire is imperative in sales. With Hasani being a standout wide receiver on the Rose Bowl Northwestern football team, a competitive spirit had to be there. Without any problems, Hasani sold out the development in 6 months. Hasani is a true talent.”

“Congratulations on your recent and well deserved Good Neighbor Award. I appreciate and respect the work you did bringing business development and hope to the community.”

“Skeptical would describe my initial feelings about buying a home. It was Hasani who helped ease my apprehension over time. Before looking at any MLS listings or attending showings, he suggested that I write down my goals. After I listed my goals, Hasani filed them away. “We’ll look at them next year and see how far you’ve come,” he said. Unlike other agents I had spoken with before choosing Hasani, his approach was different. He didn’t view my home purchase as a one-time transaction, but rather as building a relationship.
Over the past two years, Hasani has brought new insight, new ideas, and best of all, fun, to each real estate purchase. His energy, enthusiasm, and hands-on experience have made the emotional roller coaster of purchasing real estate a celebrated learning experience.”
- Danielle Hirsch
“After interviewing several successful real estate agents in Chicago, Hasani Steele was chosen by Stonemason Group to market and sell the company’s development known as Dorchester Estates. From day one, Hasani was able to quickly develop an accurate selling strategy for the property. In just two short weeks on the market, we were 50% sold.
Hasani’s strong work ethic and exceptional attention to detail is what distinguishes him from the average agent. His knowledge, expertise, and opinions have been invaluable. His level of professionalism is second to none.
Hasani has done a wonderful job in representing the Stonemason brand. He truly understands the goals of the company. We look forward to building a stronger relationship with Hasani in the future. I would highly recommend Hasani Steele as a valuable member of any real estate deal team.”

“I wanted you to know how much I enjoy showing your listings! It is an absolute pleasure to walk into a property that not only is cosmetically appealing, but is clean, smells good…and a big one is they are always thermostatically comfortable. There is nothing worse than walking into unbearable heat or cold and trying to sell a property! Your investors are top of the line, as well it should be, because you are top line. Always my pleasure.”
- Belinda Mitchell Blanks
“I had been looking for a home for about two years and had talked with several realtors. No one had helped me find a home that suits my life style. I looked at the @properties web site and liked what I saw; so I signed up and was assigned Hasani Steele.
Hasani called my home and asked if I had a finance company. I said I could not find one to give us the rate we were willing to pay. His charismatic voice and expertise and knowledge in the area of finance impressed me. I was introduced to the perfect mortgage company that gave me a rate I could not refuse.
Next came showing us the homes. Hasani is not just a realtor he is an inborn designer and loves beautiful surroundings. He listens to his clients and understands their life styles and provides them with the home they always wanted. Hasani is passionate about pleasing his clients. He goes the extra mile to make sure no stone is left untouched. Inspections, lawyers, builders and financing– every aspect of the home buying process, he makes sure all is working in his clients favor.
Hasani is extremely professional in all aspects of his work. His charming personality and polite manners give him lifelong relationships. If I were to sell my beautiful home, I would use Hasani Steele all over again. I continue to get enormous compliments on our wonderful home. ALL THANKS TO HASANI STEELE.”

“Hello and Hi,
My name is Thelma Parks and in 2010 I purchased a property at 11536 South Eggleston Ave. here in Chicago. I am very pleased and delighted with the rehab work that was initiated by Mr. Steele on this property. I am also aware that it was one of the properties to win the 2011 Good Neighbor Award.
I don’t know if any of you are familiar with this area “Roseland” it could be very depressing but I guarantee you that this property has been like a beacon light especially on this block of 115th on Eggleston Ave. People stop in front of the house (either when they are walking or driving) to look at it in awe of how beautiful it looks (almost like a diamond in the rough). Last week we called the fire department to come out and check out our smoke detectors because they kept going off and saying carbon monoxide warning. Well, it turned out that we needed a new battery in one detector but the firemen were so impressed with the house that we ended up giving them a tour. They were impressed!! Everyone who comes into the house just open their eyes in astonishment and once given a tour they are amazed! Who would have ever thought to see a house this beautiful in Roseland.
I thank Mr. Steele and all who had anything to do with the rehabbing of this property. This is truly a work of excellence. I thank God for His timing because I had been looking for a house, in Roseland, for over 10 years. I ventured out into the suburbs but nothing materialized after I was ready to put an offer on at least 3 properties prior to this one. I am right down the street from my mom and dad who are in their 80′s and still live in their home 11340 S. Eggleston. I can easily walk down the street and visit them or they can come down here and visit me.
Mr. Steele did a wonderful, fabulously great job on this property and I will keep this property looking this way as long as I live and also will inspire my neighbors to become more active in keeping their properties and helping to keep our neighborhood in good condition.
I didn’t mean to give part of my life history, but viewing these new properties that have been rehabbed by Mr. Steele made me just thank God for the spirit of excellence that Mr. Steele has concerning his work. I pray that God would bless his business exceeding above all that Mr. Steele can think or imagine. Thank you Mr. Steele.
Thelma loving my new home Parks”

“I have worked extensively with Hasani Steele over the past two-three years, and he is bar none one of my favorite Realtors. Being in the business myself, I have referred him to my closest friends, knowing that his service and abilities are unmatched.
Hasani has a rare blend of talent, work ethic, competitive drive, intelligence, and interpersonal skill that make him extremely effective at understanding the needs of his clients, working hard to find them the perfect property to purchase, and successfully negotiating contracts with very attractive terms.
If you are looking for a Real Estate Agent, I highly recommend you make an appointment to sit down with Hasani at his office on Ohio to interview him as one of your options.”
- Daniel Chookaszian
“As a developer in the Chicago land area for nearly twenty years, I have engaged in business transactions with numerous real estate agents. None of which have had the dedication of not only real estate transactions, but also community interests. Hasani’s primary goal seems to be more than buying and selling real estate with his clients, but rather to positively affect each area he is involved with. He is a driving force in my business and adds a value to it that I have never before experienced. Hasani is an asset to his vocation, to the community, and to his clients and I feel fortunate to work with him in each of our development endeavors.”
- Lewis Korompilas
Hasani is an outstanding real estate professional. He made the process of purchasing our first condo very pleasant for my wife and I. He was always available to us to answer questions and provided guidance thoughout the entire process.
If you want an agent that genuinely cares about his clients, then this is the agent for you.
My wife and I definitely look forward to doing bussiness with Hasani again in the future.

“My family owned this wonderful home from 1958-1971. Thank you for recognizing its great bones and investing in it. You have given me and my family such joy to view our childhood home brought back to life. I noticed tonight that the property is under contract. Congratulations! Now another family can make their own memories in this wonderful home.”
