Local Expertise

I had a friend, actually I was the best man in his wedding, who father was a lifelong Chicago police officer and literally knew every block in the city.  The point is it takes a Chicagoan to know Chicago.  From school districts, to which streets anchor a neighborhood, to demographics, to historical landmarks and main thoroughfares to commute times, I invite all of my prospective clients to pick my brain on these subjects and more to gain first access to what will give you huge consumer confidence in your next transaction.  Local markets take local expertise.  I am willing and eager to help you as soon as you are ready.  Allow me to lend you my assistance and let's make youtr next move together!

Find Your Next Home
Finding a home is all about the gives and takes of the process, finding the perfect home is sometimes about finding the perfect home FOR YOU.  From four squares, to colonials, to downtown high rises, to tudors, to sleepy cape cods, your home should be a reflection of yourself.  It is going to be a long-term part of your life and I will make sure you find something that is deserving of your TLC.

Sell a Home
Selling a home is a process that takes careful planning at the outset, and multiple steps which must all be carried out carefully.  I can help you gain the most from your greatest asset and investment---listing, marketing, advertising, negotiating, inspecting, loan processing, closing---these are the steps involved that I can help you with.  I'm eager to be your exclusive resource and help you from start to finish. 

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
The best opportunity you can give your home to sell at its optimal price is to accentuate its best features.  Sometimes simple selling tactics such as home staging, a new paint job, some minor repairs and exterior maintanence, can be the difference between a quick sell and a home that sits on the market.  Most home in Chicago were built with the finest attention to detail, the older home especially, so it's always important to resurrect and engage the triggers that made consumers excited to buy their homes many decades ago because many of these are the same triggers that can induce a buyer today.
