Eva Bergant -- Joined @Properties July 2002 making her one of @'s Founding Agents and a part of what turned a boutique real estate firm into the #1 real estate brokerage in Chicago.

Overall the Real Estate Market continues to be challenging. The Market for your place or your dream home is specific to your neighborhood. Eva is your advisor in understanding your local market and she is your advocate for every step in the sale/purchase process, and beyond. Buyers and Sellers rely on Eva's dedication and knowledge to get the transaction completed and settle into their home. Eva takes the time to be there to sell your place and to keep up with all the details involved in the sale. She is on top of the market for your new purchase, and diligent in follow up.
As a life time resident of Chicago, Eva says “Real estate lets me merge my love of Chicago, its' architecture, culture and diversity with my sincere interest in putting people together with the best living situations possible.”
Eva enjoys exploring the parks and restaurants of Chicago neighborhoods and is focused on using her experiences to aid buyers and sellers in making significant decisions in this marketplace. Eva gives back to her community in many ways including serving on the Boards of the Churchill Park Advisory Council, the Dog Area Improvement Committee (see Churchill Dog Park Facebook group) and the Bucktown Community Organization for which she organizes the annual Bucktown GardenWalk (see bucktown.org). Eva's spare time is filled with time with her pets and volunteering at PAWS Chicago to find homes for dogs and cats. She's also a devout fan of the Chicago Blackhawks and Chicago Cubs.
“Real Estate is not just an investment - it's your home or a home you are providing to others. If you or someone you know is interested in property in Chicagoland, or just looking to understand some of the various neighborhoods in Chicago, please contact me. I would be happy to help you in listing your property or finding you an exciting new address.”
