Real Estate Specialties
Primary Specialty: Residential transactions for buyers and sellers--area of expertise -- South Loop north to Rogers Park and the lake west to Western. As an owner of rental properties, I also work with many investors and understand their needs when purchasing/owning rental properties.
Most agents claim to provide 'superior service' but do they? 90% of my business in any given year is from referrals of clients. Why? From the time of our initial communication to their close and beyond--- anticipate questions before they're asked, never end a day without emails/vm's answered and I study my market....seriously. Call me and ask me about the GREAT properties and then also the ones to avoid---I'll tell you. Ask me about my favorite props or others I would avoid at all costs. Plain and simple honesty---I think that is what people appreciate. Just call and ask/test me---I enjoy a challenge or
The market is gaining momentum here in Chicago. Prices are still low -- 44% above the bottom of the market, but 5% below the peak. Rates--WOW. Why isn't everyone buying??? I'm an 'oldie' and remember when rates were 10%+. Unemployment is coming down, consumer confidence going up AND rents....still going up 5-10%. Investors aren't buying as much anymore--returns have dropped from 20-25% to 3-5%. Also--many condo buildings, faced with increasing number of rentals --some @ 50% have limited the number of rentals allowed in their buildings = putting MORE pressure on the rental market. On the north side, we haven't built many rentals---so it's not a GREAT time to be a renter. Better to buy. Problem is too many late 20 something's/early 30's year old's are still living at home. This can't last forever, right??? Could Boom II be coming????Professional Qualifications
