An animal lover, foodie, husband, observer of the world, and top-producing real estate broker starts the story of who I am and what I do. I enjoy traveling, exploring local art galleries, and experiencing architecture of all styles and eras. My client base is as diverse as the properties I represent. With extensive experience in Chicago's luxury, new construction, condominium, co-op, single family home, and historic property markets, my clients' needs are top priority. The process of buying and selling can get complicated and emotional. No drama here. I just get it done.
With an in-depth knowledge of Chicago's diverse communities, I have developed a reputation for service and follow-through, evidenced by a strong referral business. My association with talented architects, designers, and craftsmen ensure that my clients are fully satisfied with their homes and spaces after the sale.
I specialize in historic and vintage Chicago real estate - but that's not all! Whether you are looking to buy or sell a hip loft space, historic home, or new modern high-rise digs, you've come to the right place. If VINTAGE and historic properties are your passion, visit my BLOG, www.ISpeakVintage.com, for a little entertainment, education, and just plain cool stuff.
Check out my reviews on Zillow, and Yelp. I love what I do and it shows. Home. Life. Style.
