I am a native of Evanston and 7 year Uptown resident that has spent most of my life cultivating a personal and professional relationship with Chicagoland. I joined the @ family in the fall of 2009. Ever since I have strived to ensure that all of my clients have a real estate experience that helps them fall in love with Chicagoland the same way I have. Whether it is getting a seller the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time or making sure a buyer ends up in a home that suits all of their needs within their budget, I am resolute in my commitment that my clients' experience is an efficient, effective, and positive one. I firmly believe that my clients deserve a relationship with their agent that extends beyond the close of a transaction. Total care means being a knowledge and referral source, not just a transactional advisor. The Zupancic Group, of which I am a member, is dedicated to providing that total care to our clients and has nearly a century of combined experience in real estate.
I earned a B.A. in English Literature from Denison University in 1999. From there I turned my eyes skyward. After finishing the Professional Pilot Program at Delta Connection Academy near the top of my class, I subsequently served as both a flight and ground school instructor. I then headed to the airlines where I spent most of my 5 year career based out of JFK Airport in New York. While vastly different in execution I see the key principles that make a safe flight and a successful real estate transaction as being quite similar: Sound fundamental knowledge, an awareness of the surrounding environment, and a plan for all contingencies. In my tenure in the aviation industry I learned the ability to work in high pressure, high risk environments, and to absorb all the information around me. As a broker, I have spent the last 9 years adapting and honing those skills for this industry. It is my job to serve as co-pilot to my clients and arm them with the market understanding and professional support necessary to safely navigate their transaction.
At the core of a stable real estate market is a healthy and vibrant community. Giving back to the town from which I have so greatly benefited is important to me. To that end, I serve on the boards of ETHS Educational Foundation and Y.O.U. Evanston and am currently in my 2nd term as the President of the Evanston Township High School Alumni Association.
Clients are saying:
"We worked with Kevin when we were buying our first condo. The experience was so positive that we went back to him when it was time to sell it--and buy something bigger.Kevin's meticulous attention to detail saved us thousands of dollars in all three transactions. I couldn't recommend him more highly!"
"We are fortunate to know Kevin personally, but getting to know him professionally was a pleasure. As first time home buyers, we were a little nervous about how to proceed. Kevin spent extra time with us to explain the process in minute detail and answer our questions patiently and thoroughly. He went above and beyond to help us understand our options, make tough decisions, get through negotiations (of which there were several, in this competitive market!) and ultimately close the deal on a condo that we are proud to own. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
"Kevin provided many services far beyond what what I would have expected from any broker. And, his advice was spot on. I'm thrilled with the entire selling process and I have Kevin to thank for every aspect of the process."
"We are very happy with Kevin's level of service! That's why we've used Kevin as our broker for 6 years."
"Kevin was great to work with and very knowledgable. Would definitely use him again or recommend him to others."
