Buying a place to live ignited a major interest for Realtor Cindy Risch. Throughout the 1990’s she continued investing in various real estate throughout Chicago, from established locations in Lincoln Park, to edgier areas such as Logan Square.

Cindy sees every client as an individual, helping them define what their needs, desires and financial goals are for a place to live, or adding to their investment portfolio.
