Dan Schlaack

Licensed Realtor

As a Realtor, I am dedicated to providing exceptional, personalized service for every one of my clients. With a track record of selling homes quickly and for the highest price, I am proud to have received rave reviews from all of my clients that I have been privileged to have had the opportunity to work with.  I will work relentlessly to exceed your real estate expectations, every step of the way!

Originally from South Haven Michigan, where I was born and raised, my family and I have lived in many cities from coast to coast, with the majority of that time spent in Chicago and its suburbs, where I've been a realtor for years. 

In 2021, I expanded my real estate business to include my home town of South Haven and all of Southwest Michigan, in addition to Naperville and the greater Chicagoland area!  If you are thinking of moving to the sunset coast of southwest Michigan, I can help you on both sides of Lake Michigan!

My wife Kerry and I have two amazing sons, Jack and Henry. Henry, the younger of the two, is affected by autism, a neurological disorder that affects 1 out of every 54 children born today. Deeply impacting our family, we have been outspoken advocates for Autism awareness and long-time supporters of Autism Speaks, the nation’s largest science and advocacy organization for over a decade. As a parent and Realtor, I am committed to being a resource for families as they navigate the difficult task of finding housing opportunities for those affected by autism, as I have first-hand experience with the emotional and financial challenges that accompany the disorder.

I currently sit on the Upper Midwest Leadership Council for Autism Speaks. You’ll often find me wearing my blue, puzzle piece pin, especially during April, Autism Awareness Month!

"As a seller I was out of not in town to sell this property. Dan assured me that don’t worry I will take care, ‘Sounds familiar and you heard that before a lot of times from other realtors too’. Dan is the person he really meant when he said it. He went above and beyond and took care of the property and he did a fabulous job and sold my property fast. I am not hesitant to say he put his heart and soul to sell this property. Thank you is surely not enough with your work! It was great working with you!"

  -Giribabu Family - Benton Harbor, Client

"Dan made the experience painless in a very stressful situation. He was a great. He made it simple from the beginning to the end, even when things were not easy for us. He was more than a realtor, he was a true friend in real estate. He was honest and professional. He explained everything you need to know and then some. I really look forward to working with him again in the future!"

  -The Jakab Family - Carol Stream, Client

"Dan found us a home quickly and handled all negotiations--always going above and beyond our expectations. Dan is a Diamond in the rough! There's an immediate trust in his professionalism--if you're looking for the best, you've found it! From our family to yours, thank you Dan!"

  -Ellis Family - Lisle, Client

"We sold our house today, for higher than the asking price! I'd say the process could've been completely different if we didn't hire Dan. He makes magic happen! We'd definitely recommend Dan to others without any hesitation!"

As an agent who's an expert in Chicagoland and Southwest Michigan, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home! I also have working knowledge and experience with home construction, building codes, zoning in the suburbs and the city. 

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will effectively promote and advertise your home, aggressively pursue prospective buyers, negotiate the best purchase price, coordinate and oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. Most importantly, I'll be there from start to finish, taking care of everything you need, making myself available any time for your questions and concerns.  I'm your point person throughout the entire transaction.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.  I have a proven track record of exceptional service and honest advice that has resulted in my clients receiving top dollar for their home in the shortest time possible.
