"Celebrating 27 years of Real Esate Success"

I have a long list of advocates and raving fans over the past 26 years. My sphere of marketing clients homes in Chicago and the North Shore, is where I specialize in the luxury and historic home market. I began my real estate life as a child of a renowned real estate developer, as I recall scouting out the next selected area for investment on Sunday afternoons, as early as 1968. Early in life, I learned the impact and power of vision, and a long term view and commitment to its attainment. I am focused on the goal and never waver from serving the needs of my clients. I aspire to achieve excellence in everything that I do. I have a long list of clients that are very successful in their own careers and they are always thankful for my honesty and commitment to their wellbeing. I have found that my knowledge of financial markets aligns well with my clients who are not only looking for a spectacular dream home, but also a wise investment that will appreciate. I have supported many clients in finding the home that is undervalued, as a good hedge against market fluctuations. A thorough value assessment is a part of my consultancy work that is unique. Clients walk away feeling confident that they have invested wisely. They trust my insights and me. Blair's brand: expertise, insight, foresight, and strong core values. The prize is 26 years of joy consulting with my very special clients, and lifelong friends.

"I highly recommend Blair Lele as a top notch real estate agent. As an agent, Blair has a unique combination of assets: honesty, integrity and experience. Working with her, I always felt she had my best interests at heart, both in selling and also helping me to purchase a new home for my family. Since I am in a lot of real estate work as a practicing Architect, I know how important it is to understand the market. When I needed it, Blair provided me with a thorough market analysis so that I was well informed about my decisions. To those of you who decide to hire Blair, you are in good hands!

"I owned a building which I had wanted to sell for sometime, but didn't think the market was conducive at the time. However I chance meeting with Blair resulted in an interesting conversation, as she was familiar with the area and told me values had actually rebounded. After running a market analysis to confirm the trend was in our favor, she listed the building and we had an encouraging amount of interest. Over the next several months I worked closely with Blair as we monitored the responses, market dynamics, and adjusted the price accordingly. All of which resulted in the sale of the property. Blair has all the qualities you want from a realtor, and her responsiveness and ability to advocate on my behalf were very much valued and appreciated. I would definitely use her for future real estate sales or purchases."

"Blair worked tirelessly to help us find a home. We looked at many properties allowing us to determine what was best for us and our budget. She was always on time and professional and fully understood the market. She also helped us to sell our condominium and negotiated three offers to our advantage. I highly recommend her."

"Blair assisted me with the purchase of my very first home. She guided me through the complex purchase of a co-op with a high level of professionalism and knowledge of the market that a less experienced realtor might not have possessed. She negotiated well on my behalf, and (most importantly) made the experience enjoyable."

"Blair assisted me with the purchase of my first home. I chose to work with her because of her in-depth knowledge of both the marketplace and the intricacies of navigating the purchase of a co-op.
I trusted her implicitly throughout the process, and could count on her to provide me with valuable information about particular buildings, When the time came to make an offer, I was confident that Blair was representing my best interest and negotiating the best possible price.
What I appreciated most about working with Blair was her sensible, informed and calm approach to what could have very easily be a stressful process!"
