As a life-long Chicagoan who's a seasoned expert in the Chicago market, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about the buying and selling process. It's not the same everywhere, so you need an expert you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve and support your real estate goals!
Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows Chicago inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.
Sell Your Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. My full service experience will take care of everything you need from start to close.
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 make all the difference.
