In 2001, after 6 years in the entertainment industry, I returned to my hometown from Los Angeles. I entered real estate because of my love for Chicago and my understanding of the kind of service that discerning clients demand. I have created successful partnerships with my clients by listening to their needs, and exceeding their expectations.
In 2002, after my first full year in the business, I produced $8,500,000 in sales. By my 4th year in real estate, my sales exceeded $25,000,000, and I was recognized by the Chicago Association of Realtors as one of the city's top producers. 2018 marks my 17th year of exemplary service in the world of Chicago residential brokerage.
My extensive understanding of Chicago's real estate market has facilitated transactions in all areas of real estate, from 1-bedroom condos to $3,500,000+ single family homes. I also have extensive experience marketing new construction projects ranging from 3 to 75 units, and brokering multi-million dollar land deals.
My number one priority is servicing my client's needs and accomplishing our collective goal: selling a client's home in the most effective, innovative, and profitable way possible.
I believe it's critically important to treat people the way I would like to be treated, and I take great care in dealing with my clients and my community.
I pride myself on being a valuable resource to my clients, and not just someone they can rely on when purchasing or selling real estate. In keeping with this philosophy, I encourage you to reach out anytime you may need my services, but also if you are just curious about a new neighborhood, or have questions about Chicago area real estate. Thank you!

Would work with him again and would recommend him to anyone."
