I share my personal mission statement because I believe it is important for you to understand my approach to the real estate industry, the marketing of homes, and the buyer-seller relationships that I work so intensely to build.
In order to provide the best service possible for every client I represent, I will always tell my clients the truth and will refrain from entering into client relationships where I know what is expected of me cannot be completed in good faith. To sustain successful and winning buyer-seller relationships, my clients and I must have a mutual goal.
My honesty, loyalty, understanding, accountability and creativity set me apart from the real estate masses. My services will always be made available to the public, and I will utilize a well-trained staff to assist me in the complex home sale and purchase processes. Prioritizing my time so that I work with only those clients interested in either buying or selling real estate, is essential to me.
I will treat all parties fairly and offer all properties to clients without regard to race, age, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, physical or mental handicap, familial status, sexual orientation, or gender. I intend to promote the best interest of my clients, obtaining the best price for my clients and disclose all facts that may affect or influence my clients’ decisions.
You have my promise that I will continuously educate myself in order to serve you with unrivaled quality and unparalled dedication. I always strive for excellence.
You win in life by helping others.

What my clients are saying..........
“It's hard to believe but I've been relying on David Shallow for real estate advice since the early 1980s. Since then he's shown me numerous properties, given wise counsel, and written countless contracts on my behalf. In fact, since March 2003, David has flawlessly guided me through 6 separate real estate transactions. In my case, David Shallow is the realtor who provides the best fit. He's straight-forward with his knowledge and his ideas (even if they're contrary to your own), personable, and committed to your satisfaction during the negotiation, and after the closing. I'm honestly sold on him...and you will be too!” Paul Hickey, LaGrange, IL
”About 10 years ago, we decided to sell our home, and purchase a new home. We weren't sure where to turn as far as choosing a realtor. We saw an advertisement for David Shallow in the newspaper, and decided to make an appointment to speak with him. After he explained the services he would provide, we felt very comfortable and decided to list our home with him. David really listened to our concerns, and showed us several homes that matched our needs. He also gave us very honest opinions on the homes we were considering. It has been close to ten years since we moved into our new home, and we are still very happy with our choice. The experience of buying and selling a home can be very stressful. With David Shallow as your realtor, it will be a pleasant and smooth transaction. I can honestly say that working with David was a pleasure, and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling their home.” Cheryl Krabec, Naperville, IL
"David Shallow has helped my husband and me sell a home, and buy a home. We sold our home in less than a week during a very slow market. Then, one year later, when we transferred back to Illinois, David found exactly what we were looking for the FIRST day out! Need I say more? David Shallow is the best!” Nancy and Larry Adams, Aurora, IL
"David Shallow made the process of buying and selling our home seem effortless. With his vast experience in the real estate industry, he educated and consulted us into what always turned out to be the best decision for us. We have recommended David to more than 15 friends who agree that David is one of the best in the industry. When we decide to sell again, David would be the only person we would call.” Ken and Kathy Berbert, Naperville, IL.
"We cannot express what a stressful time finding a home and purchasing one is, however David made us feel at ease. He explained every process thoroughly and even had suggestions of trustworthy people to help us with everything from carpet to the home inspection and mortgage. He gave us the opportunity to look at many homes WITHIN our price range and we never felt pressured or that our best interest wasn't his objective. We will highly recommend David to anyone we know who is looking for a home in the future and will continue to use him with any needs we have as well.” Kimo and Ruth Treadway, Lake in the Hills, IL
"Last summer, we decided to downsize. The first thing we did was call David Shallow. We’ve known David for more than twenty years, first as a neighbor, then as our realtor. We knew we could count on his professionalism, expertise, and network of real estate professionals, from mortgage brokers to home inspectors to real estate lawyers. David listened carefully to our needs and concerns, used his expertise and the Re/Max network at his disposal, and listed our property. Our house sold in four days at a price that exceeded our expectations. David then helped us find a perfect new home, connected us with a wonderful mortgage broker, and assisted us in negotiations with the sellers. When we encountered a problem, he was there immediately to ease our worries and find a solution. We’re now settled and quite comfortable in our new home, thanks to David. All totaled, David has helped us with four real estate transactions. Would we use his services again? Yes. Would we recommend him to family and friends? Absolutely. We’re proud to call David Shallow our realtor of choice. Thanks, David!” Barbara and Craig Cary, Aurora, Illinois
"David Shallow did an excellent job when we were looking for a house. He listened to what we wanted and avoided showing us things that did not meet our criteria. At the same time, he was creative in making suggestions, incredibly patient while we looked at a lot of houses in different areas, professional in handling the details and negotiations, and a fun guy to be around during a stressful time.” Don and Linda Bingle, St. Charles, IL
