D. Waveland Kendt
D. Waveland Kendt is pleased to be affiliated with @properties, Chicago's most successful real estate brokerage and leading marketer of new construction developments. Living his entire professional life in Chicago, Waveland brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the business of real estate.
Working with buyers and sellers, Waveland has developed an understanding of what works. A buyer needs timely and pertinent information that ultimately empowers them to make a purchasing decision based on knowledge and facts. This leads to satisfaction and peace of mind that the property was purchased at the right price. And more importantly, the place that they’ll call home will bring a sense of peace and comfort for years to come.
A seller needs the same type of market information to maximize price and minimize market time; two key factors that contribute to a successful sale. Waveland is laser focused on the multiple ways that a buyer comes to learn about a new listing, whether it is on-line at various real estate sites, through signage or direct mail, on the MLS, or through open houses. Waveland uses all means available to market a property and facilitate the quickest possible sale.
With over 120 million in sales over the last four years, Waveland has acquired valuable insight into what it takes to navigate the ever-changing waters of the Chicago real estate market.
Waveland graduated cum laud with a B.S. in Economics from Purdue University and is currently pursuing a Masters in Liberal Arts from University of Chicago. For Waveland’s honeymoon, his wife and he sailed from New York City to Tahiti on a 46 ft. sailboat. The 12-month trip covered 8,000 blue water miles.
Clients are saying:
"I had heard of waveland by researching a similar unit he had sold at the same location for the highest price sold in the condominium building at the time. He brought in an excellent stager, prepared the sales materials efficiently, and to my surprise did an open house Super Bowl Sunday. The property went under contract for very close to asking price in less than a week. It was all done in a well communicated manner which included his assistant Lisa."
"Waveland's service is top-notch. He suggested ways to help stage my home and really helped me prepare to show my home, not all realtors take the time to do this. He was always completely responsive no matter how busy he was, and if he was off on another showing he would have his team call me back right away. He uses a showing team, again, stunningly, not all realtors do this but it made a HUGE difference in time on the market. He helped me sell my unit in just a couple of months during the down season of Fall/Winter after it had languished on the market with a different Realtor all Spring and Summer. Simply remarkable. I will absolutely use Waveland's services in the future when I buy/sell again and I would recommend him to any and everyone who is looking to buy/sell a home. I have worked with several realtors over the years and Waveland and his team are the absolute best I have ever had the pleasure of working with!"
"So good I asked him to sell my old place too!"
"Waveland was great. He negotiated a great price for our sale, and helped us through a subsequent purchase. His team is top-notch, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others."
"Waveland was great to work with as was his assistant Lisa. They took care of everything for us and sold our place in 48 hours!"
