"Experience IS the difference."
Real Estate comes naturally to Lola. With over 10 years of experience in the real estate industry; beginning in mortgages and transitioning into home sales; Lola has an unmatched background in the business and a deep love for the art of the deal. Yet, Lola’s greatest asset is her ability to give 110% of her into all she does, especially servicing her clients to the highest degree. She fell in love with real estate early on because she started traveling at a young age. "Traveling and seeing different places, cultures and architecture opened my eyes to the beauty of real estate. It all intertwines, a people’s lifestyle, their likes and passions are all reflected in their home and choice of location."
Her greatest inspiration continues to be her parents, who worked hard to make a life in their new homeland, after moving to the States. They saved up to begin investing in real estate. Once Lola’s family bought their first piece of property, they decided to invest heavily in real estate. She has been a part of many projects involving investing and developing, from the city’s multi-unit buildings to developing million dollar homes on Northshore’s Glenview and land acquisitions along Montenegro’s Adriatic Sea.
It all starts with a single step, Lola says. "I want to show people they can own a home and invest. If my parents could do it in on this scale in a matter of two decades, I believe the possibilities for others are endless as well. There are so many options and incentives out there that should be taken advantage of. I want people to have a piece of their own rock and watch their wealth grow through real estate."
Lola has earned her ABR - Accredited Buyers Representative, SFR - Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource and CNE - Certified Negotiation Expert Designations that has placed her in top 1% of agents in the country in negotiation skill training. Her favorite part of real estate is meeting new people and using her attention to detail to ensure a smooth transaction from start to finish. "There are no problems, ONLY solutions," Lola says. Her optimist leads the way while her savvy business sense successfully accomplishes any task at hand. In addition, she continually attends seminars and says she’ll never stop perfecting the field. Lola has both her Bachelor of Arts in Marketing Communications from Columbia College Chicago and Bachelor of Science. She is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Multiple Listing Service of Northern Illinois and the Chicago Association of Realtors. In her free time, Lola explores her other passion - holistic health and nutrition. She volunteers at her neighborhood hospital and tries to spend as much time outdoors as she can.
Clients are saying:
"The expereince for a first time buyer/renter can be very overwhelming, stressful and scary. I personally was not that knowledgeable about my apartment search in regards to location/price and to be honest the overall process, however having the pheonomenal Lola Delic by my side made the entire search so easy and fun. She was so warm and engaging. She really made an effort to listen and reflect on what i was looking for. I will surely recommend Lola to my friends and family. She's the best!
"We would highly recommend Lola to anyone—buying or selling! She is such a kind person but extremely confident and always had our best interests in mind. She really made sure she understood our needs and style before showing us homes. This made us feel so comfortable being able to quickly walk through homes that did not meet our needs and spend more time on the home that was perfect for us! Most importantly she was so quick to respond to our questions and was able to get answers from the sellers side at all hours of the day. She was also a huge help in quickly leasing our condo so we can hold onto it and feel confident in the tenant that will be living in our property.
Lola made the stressful buying process seem very easy because of her experience and care for finding us the perfect home!"
"It was an absolute pleasure working with Lola and her associate. The process was stress free, quick, efficient and I even ended up saving a little on my rent from the list price!! I'd highly recommend Lola to anyone looking to rent in Rogers Park. She has the hookup on some beautiful spaces!"
"Lola Delic whole heartedly puts her heat and soul into every real estate transaction big or small. Her work ethic and professionalism from her 15 years of experience in this field really shows. We had a great turn out at the open house and a couple offers the first week! I will definetly recommend her to my family and friends!"
"Lola was an amazing resource for my roommate and I when moving to Chicago! She helped us find the perfect apartment in a great area. Her depth of local knowledge and her positive attitude made the whole experience fun and painless for us."
