Experienced, Knowledgeable & Very responsive
Mark represented me in the sale of my Illinois house. I am a Michigan lawyer with quite a bit of real estate experience, so I know good representation when I have it. First and foremost, Mark is very knowledgeable about the nuisances of Illinois real estate law. Second (and very important), Mark was extremely responsive to every email and call I made to him. Mark made me feel like I was his number one client during the process. Do not hesitate to retain Mark if you have a real estate issue... Mark and his team will take great care of you. Thank you Mark !

Best choice!
Mr. Berardi was my lawyer in the sale of my home. I rarely write reviews unless I am very impressed! The sale process was not easy, the buyers had some ridiculous requests after inspection and Mr. Berardi expertly advised me as to how to proceed. I was also very torn about selling my house and had some last minute decisions to make and Mr. Berardi was always promptly available to answer my questions even on weekends and late into the evening. If he was in a meeting his partner Andrew Costa spoke to me instead. I wish I would have found them sooner and used them in my estate planning.

Above and Beyond!
Mark helped us sell our home and purchase our new home and we couldn't be more pleased with his service. He was incredibly responsive and went above and beyond on all aspects of both sales. We had a a messy closing situation but Mark and our realtor made it as seamless as possible and made sure to do as much as they could on the back-end without bringing any additional stress to us. We truly appreciate everything you did! If you need a top-notch attorney when buying or selling your home, Mark is your man!

Excellent problem solver!
Mark and his staff are on top of things. Some difficulties occurred the week before my closing. Mark assured me we could figure them out and he did! I would recommend him to anyone and all my friends.

Hands down, the best!
Mark has been our attorney through two property purchases. Through both, his dedication and personal attention has been unsurpassed. During our second purchase, there were many hurdles through document acquisition and red tape, but Mark worked tirelessly to get things done. He used his resources and contacted countless others to help move the process along when things seemed to go nowhere. His sense of urgency and care in the matter made us feel like we were always a top priority, responding promptly at all hours. Even in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, he made the process as seamless as possible. I give him my highest recommendation. If you need an attorney, this is your guy!

Exceptional!
I am a first time home buyer and Mark was an integral part of my team. His knowledge and understanding helped me through this process. He was always available to answer my questions and always had my best interest in mind. He was proactive during the process leading up to the closing and took the time at closing to make sure I understood each document presented for my signature. I was surprised to receive so much of his time and attention, this was VA loan and his services were provided pro bono. I cannot thank Mark enough!!!!

Knowledgeable and Thorough
Mark’s knowledge and thorough support is unsurpassed. He is proactive, a clear and timely communicator, thinks strategically and and listens well, really looking out for his clients.

Great service
I am a licensed Realtor in Illinois. I have buyers and sellers who worked with Mark Berardi in the past, and currently working with him to close on real estate transactions. I can not say enough great words to express my clients gratitude and satisfaction. His vast expertise, prompt response and attentiveness to any question, or issue that arise during transaction extends beyond professionalism and down to earth approach. Every client is important to him no matter of size, or difficulty of transaction. And a little bonus, down to earth personality and super affordable service. I would highly recommend him as a real estate attorney

Excellent Attorney with Superb Customer Service!
I had the opportunity to work with Attorney Mark Berardi of Fisher Berardi Law on the purchase and eventual sell of my home. He was the consummate professional and made the buying and selling process seamless. He provided timely feedback and was responsive 24/7 to any questions or concerns that arose through the process. Having worked with many different attorneys throughout my professional career I can honestly say that he is one of the best. If you are in the market for an excellent real estate attorney than he needs to be the first person you contact.

Mark is the best attorney around.
As a local real estate broker, I have referred Mark to several of my clients over the last few years. I have worked with many other attorneys, and NO ONE compares to Mark -- he is very responsive, thorough and great at keeping everyone "in the know".. which is something I appreciate immensely. Everyone I refer him to is happy, and speaks highly of him. My husband and I also engaged Mark for will/trust work, and couldn't be happier with the quality of work and ease of the process. I highly recommend Mark!

Highly recommend
Mark made the process of selling my house quick and easy, so when it was time to buy another house, I looked to Mark again. He is readily available by phone or email and is quick to respond. His friendly demeanor helped make both closings more comfortable. I highly recommend him.

In the right hands!
Mark and his team were outstanding working with us as first-time home buyers. As we were purchasing by-owner and not using a real estate agent, Mark really went the extra mile to be sure we knew each step of the process. From the initial conversation through closing, Mark really made you feel like you were his only client. Him and his team were extremely quick on returning emails and phone calls, we truly felt like he would drop anything to help us. If you are looking to hire an attorney that makes you truly feel like they have your best interest at heart, you'll want to hire Mark!

Responsive, reliable and smart
Quite a few of my clients (I'm a Realtor) have been working with Mark in the last few years. Without fail, they are all pleased with his ability to explain the sale process, his down-to-earth approachable attitude, and the promptness of his communication. He has protected my clients and gone above and beyond to make sure their real estate closings happen in a timely fashion. I highly recommend him.

Truly the Best!
I can't say enough good things about Mark Berardi and my experience using him to sell my first home. He was efficient, consistent, diligent, reliable, accurate, and very knowledgeable. What was supposed to be an easy sale turned into a drawn out fiasco very quickly and he was there every step of the way, making sure he was on top of every detail, and in constant communication. He was the best advocate I could have on my side and really made the transaction livable through two-months of ups and downs that were totally out of our control. As a business woman who deals with people being inefficient at their jobs on a regular basis I can honestly say that Mark never once dropped the ball, wasn't available, and wasn't more than willing to walk me through every detail. Don't hesitate to call him. He will be my go-to from now on. Thank you isn't enough Mark!!
