My business is in real estate, and my heart is with my local community. I treat clients like neighbors: with respect, diligence, and care. Whether we are at the negotiating table, strategizing the most effective pricing and marketing plan, or choosing the perfect paint colors to increase your home's value, I'll be your fierce defendant, advocate, and friend.
Trusted Third-Party Partners
Who has the time to vet a landscaper, home stager, house cleaner, mortgage broker, handyman, real estate attorney, etcetera? I do! I have carefully selected a team of professionals to fully support your home sale and/or move. I am happy to consult with you on your needs, refer services, and set up all initial consultations for you. You've got enough on your hands!
I love thinking about and executing unique marketing strategies for my clients. I am not the real estate agent who will just sit back and hope for the best regarding the sale of your home. Together we will come up with a custom marketing plan that meets your goals, appropriately positions your home, and generates maximum exposure. Utilizing current digital technologies your listing will receive the public attention it deserves.
More exposure = more offers.
More offers = higher selling price and better terms.
One of the (many) reasons I chose @properties as my home brokerage is the gorgeous print marketing materials I can offer my clients. Every listing receives a lovely booklet for prospective buyers to take away with them and remember your home by. The booklet features professional photographs of your home, as well as a description of its features and the features of the surrounding area.
Experienced Real Estate Attorney
Real estate attorneys know real estate rules and regulations, review and help decipher contracts and other legal documents, understand zoning, oversee the transfer of deeds and titles, and help uncover liens, restrictive covenants, and other legalities affecting a property--in short, they make the process of both buying and selling a home smoother and reduce the likelihood of closing delays and after-closing litigation. My preferred attorneys are go-getters, responsive, and affordable.
I can work with any lender, of course, but if you need a recommendation I have some miracle-worker lenders from local established lending institutions. They know the loan products out there, and they know them well.
Visual Marketing Toolkit
Today's consumers are visual. A home that looks lovely online will generate more interest and better offers. After we stage your home, I bring out top real estate photographers who know how to make your home look bright, spacious, and inviting. For clients with acreage or a particularly notable location, we'll use drone photography. And for my luxury clients with generous properties, I call in the Hollywood crew. Please see the example below. (What do you think, are the butterflies real?)

Stop looking. Start finding.
Established in 2000, @properties was built around a simple but elusive concept: provide brokers and clients with the highest level of service in the industry through cutting-edge sales and marketing programs and a culture that values innovation, relationships and a strong local focus.
In less than 10 years, @properties became the #1 brokerage firm in Chicago. We then expanded to the surrounding suburbs and quickly grew into the largest independent broker in Illinois. Today @properties is one of the top 11 residential brokers in the U.S. by sales volume, the #1 real estate firm in the city of Chicago, and the second largest brokerage firm on Chicago’s North Shore.
As a locally-owned, independent company, @properties is deeply committed to supporting the communities and clients we serve. We are constantly evolving, but remain focused on that one simple idea behind our founding. Contact @properties today and let us provide you with the very best experience in real estate brokerage.
