I have a wide ranging background in construction, development and rehabs. Through my ownership of an extensive rental portfolio, I also posses many years of experience with property management and maintenance. My years of consistently high transaction volume provide me with a deep understanding of real estate transactions and of the strategies most advantageous in successfully marketing a property, as well as those necessary to purchase a property that best meets the needs of my clients.
I view one of my primary roles as an educator and I enjoy teaching my clients as we move through the entire process. I love sharing the knowledge I’ve gained over the years with my clients and enjoy addressing and overcoming the inevitable challenges and complications that occur through the course of a real estate transaction. Beyond that, I enjoy sharing the perspective that my depth of experience provides to help offset the emotions and anxiety that frequently accompany transactions of this magnitude.
My clients know that I care deeply about them and their needs and that I have a very genuine commitment to successfully accomplish their objectives. This commitment continues long after the completion of their purchase or sale. I have many clients who routinely call me years after their purchase in order to pick my brain about home improvement projects and contractor suggestions.
It’s immensely rewarding to become and remain a trusted and valued advisor to so many clients over so many years!! I am honored to have this privilege and am sincerely grateful to my clients. Thanks!

You couldn't find a better Broker if you tried. "

"Outstanding Agent!!!!! Detail oriented, knowledgeable, professional and a very responsive. I will recommend him to all my friends for sure!"
"I can't say enough good things about Frank Pantell. He knows the entire market like the back of his hand, and has a great, calming and reassuring way about him. He's patient, yet dillegent and aggressive, and always completely professional. I'll utilize his services every time I want to buy or sell a home."

I know Frank to be a very busy individual but I always get such a helpful pleasant attitude when I speak to him. I would recommend Frank to anyone seeking real estate assistance."
-Regina Castle, Client
"Frank was an excellent agent from beginning to end. Upon researching houses, his expertise was invaluable. When it was time to visit houses, his experience with several different facets of construction were evident. He was able to explain pros and cons regarding different styles of housing construction and maintenance in an easy to understand language. Without him, we would have purchased a house that to a layperson's eye looked fine but turned out to be structurally unsound. Frank's presence in the local real estate market allowed us to get an unbelievable deal on our house. The seller was unwilling to lower the asking price until Frank negotiated down to our counter offer. And to top it off, he is a very easy person to get along with. He is a very calm, collected person that enjoys what he does. I will not use any other agent in the future."
-Shawn Pearson, Client
"Frank works very hard to keep his customers up to date in what the market is doing. His knowledge of comps is very strong. He was very helpful in moving the process towards closing post contract. He works very hard for his customers and is extremely honest. I have done business with Frank numerous times and will certainly continue to do so."
"Frank helped my sister APL purchase her first home.. a patio home in Rolling Meadows. He is simply the best.. hands down. He put up with my sister- and for that, he earned the title of saint. Frank is patient, thoughtful, and has a great sense of humor that makes the whole thing fun and enjoyable verses stressful. He is highly recommended by me and everyone in my family."
"If you're searching for an excellent realtor then congratulations your search is done. Frank is the best they come. He truly is one of the top professionals in his field. He exceeded all of my expectations and went above and beyond when helping my mom and I look for a house. He is extremely knowledgable on the subject of home buying. Every time I went to look at a house with him he would immediately start thoroughly examining it and teach me about the home. He was exceptionally patient and hardworking throughout the whole process. I have high standards with the people that I do business with and bring into my life and have to say that I was extremely impressed with Frank. This is the first online review I have ever taken the time to write and I was inspired to write it because of how good of a realtor and a person Frank is. He was a pleasure to work with and has earned my business and recommendation to all, including my my family and friends."
"If you are looking to buy or sell in the Arlington Heights, Prospect Heights, Mt. Prospect area, I suggest you contact Frank Pantell. Working with Frank Pantell to sell my Mother's condo in Prospect Heights, Illinois was stress free. Frank was professional and easy to discuss placing the condo up for sale, what our expectations were and what his experience was selling real estate in the community. He updated us frequently and made the selling and closing of the condo with ease."
"I can't imagine a better agent than Frank. He promptly answered every question I had and found a solution to every problem that came up during the process of both buying and selling my homes. And he did all of this with good humor, intelligence and understanding. I believe he truly cares about doing his job well and helping his clients, and he possesses the knowledge to do that most effectively. If I had to do it all again, I wouldn't even consider anyone but Frank to be my agent."
"I met Frank Pantell in a gym and kept his contact. When my husband and I decided to sell our condo, I remembered Frank was a real estate agent and we thought we should try with him. Within 24 hours we met with Frank, talked about the process and our expectations. The day after, Frank showed up with a professional photographer who took breathtaking pictures of our place. In a few days the listing was up and the first cash offer came in the same day. After some careful consideration, Frank and we decided to give it a few more days and not rush. After another 3 showings in 2 days a cash offer came very short of the asking price. Within 10 days we were at a closing table and walked out with a check in our hand. I cannot praise Frank enough, his professionalism, attention to detail and knowledge of buyers’ behavior. All in all a great experience, with no issues whatsoever."
"Frank was our realtor when we decided to sell our first single family home in Palatine, IL. This sale was being done through a relocation company and we met several agents who were recommended by the company. However none of them came as close to the professionalism and experience as Frank did. Since we were relocating, we had to leave the house and then put it on market for sale. It was the dead peak of winter and we needed someone who could take care of the house as much as we would. Frank not only visited the house every week to ensure everything is functioning, he even packed a lot of furniture (which we had left behind to keep the house staged) and worked with the packers and movers to make sure everything was well packed and loaded in the truck. Needless to say we never had to worry about any paperwork, closing etc even though we were hundreds of miles away. He took care of everything and the sale went through without a glitch. Next time we buy/sell a house, he would be the onl"
