Purchasing a Home in Chicago

Home Buyer Representation

Whether you are a real estate investor, first time home buyer or seasoned home buying pro, I am here to help you with your real estate home buying needs with expert advice and top notch customer service as your exclusive buyer real estate agent representative.

Are you relocating from out of state, coming back to the city from the suburbs or a long-time native city-dweller looking for something new? As your trusted real estate advisor, I will help you find the right condo, town home or single family home in your favorite neighborhood to fit your lifestyle and budget.

Now That You Found Me

Why me? Because I work for my buyers with loyalty, dedication and professional guidance required for likely the largest single transaction in your life to go smoothly. I am your Change Master.


Your Risks

Three of the biggest risks my buyers face are: a) that they will miss the best property on or off the market and will settle for lesser value and b) that they will overpay for their home and c) that something is wrong with the property and no one is telling them. In our first meeting I address these risks and fears and I offer solutions for them.


Buyer Packet

I will prepare for you a tailored packet that contains all essentials for buying real estate property in Chicago, including attorneys and lenders suggestions, estimates of closing costs, maps and more. This will help you bring clarity to the process, costs, representation and get you started.


Your Needs and Wants

I ask questions and I listen. Simple. For every single requirement you share with me, I will ask you “Why?”. If this is clear to me and to you, our search to find your dream home will be much shorter. Time is money.


Understanding the Market

I will share my knowledge of the local real estate market with you. Namely, how many properties in our price range enter contracts, how much negotiability there is, how many close at or above the ask, and more.



Negotiations are important skills in any market. I will ensure that you get clarity on our negotiating strategy, so you buy your dream property on the terms acceptable to you. This strategy will be different if we face multiple offers situations.....or not.


Managing the Players

Attorney, lender, inspector, appraiser, listing brokers, property manager, title company, etc. There will be many players involved. Think of me as a quarterback of your team. My job will be that everyone does his or her job and no one drops the ball!



Happy day! You get the keys to your new home, and I gain a customer for life. My goal is to remain in your life as your real estate advisor and help you with all real estate questions and issues, for you and your family and friends.


How I Work with Home Buyers in Chicago

As a long time resident of Chicago and a Buyer's Real Estate Agent in Lincoln Park, I'll guide you through the home buying process with expert technology, tools and insider knowledge and advice as well as negotiating the best deal on your behalf even in a multiple bid situation.  It's a smart choice to have a trusted home buying expert advocating on your behalf and representing your best interests throughout the entire home buying process. My team of lender, attorney and inspection referrals can assist you with getting a loan pre-approval, representing you through the attorney review and inspection period and at the closing table!
