Real Estate with Purpose


Real Estate With Purpose

I understand that a commitment is being made beyond the four walls of your home.  That is why I pledge 10% of my personal commission to support the local charities that improve lives and create social change in your new neighborhood. You pick the charity and we deliver the donation.  Together, we can make an impact in your community.

The Key to Home Buying and Selling

Buying or selling a house can be a complicated proposition, but is a tremendously rewarding event when executed properly.  From my experience, the best way to get there is with a keen sense of the economy, an honest assessment of goals versus emotions, an intelligent and fair evaluation of the existing market, and a support team that has your best interest at heart from the start of your search to the completion of the process.  As a licensed real estate broker, I pride myself on ensuring that your end result matches your initial objective.  And this is how:

Economy 
The real estate market has seen its share of change over the past few years related to interest rates and property values.  For buyers, this means access to properties that might have been out of your price range in the past. For sellers, it introduces you to a new breed of buyers in the marketplace looking to start a new chapter of life in a home much like your own.  One of my goals in helping you is to make sure that you receive the best deal possible.  To ensure this, I am consistently seeking out and providing market insights and analysis that offer you a clear view into pricing and negotiation points when it matters most.

Honesty
I build my real estate business on trust, and because of this my first objective is to understand your goals and then make them my own.  I believe that the gap between ‘liking’ and ‘loving’ a property is larger than is often realized, and I would rather see a client walk away from an impending transaction than see them needlessly overpay or receive less money than the market is offering.  This is why I provide you with continuous feedback to ensure you stay true to your objectives, and don’t lose sight of these goals in the periodic waves of emotion that can accompany a transaction of this magnitude.  

Intelligence 
Whether you are buying or selling a house, you will experience ‘gut feelings’ at some point along the way.  My job is to provide you with an informed and realistic evaluation of these feelings.  In some cases your hunches will be confirmed, and in others you’ll discover that the truth slightly differs from your own instincts.  In either case, you can rely on me to provide you with all of the information available to make well-informed decisions related to your real estate needs.  I may not immediately have the answer to every question, but if in doubt, I will work tirelessly to get the correct answer for you. 

The Right Support Team 
The pride of my business is based on my service to you.  Whether you are buying or selling a home, I want to ensure the process is as smooth and painless as possible.  I achieve this by surrounding myself with a best-in-class support team of attorneys, lenders, inspectors, and other licensed professionals who work together in concert to create a harmonious real estate transaction.  I have personally evaluated and selected these providers based on their expertise and ability to execute flawless services for my clients.

Clients are saying:



"Working with Natalie made the process of selling our rental property quick and painless. She clearly set expectations and was extremely communicative. Natalie sold our condo in four days and facilities negotiations among multiple offers. This was our second time working with Natalie and we will use her again!"



"My wife and I have worked with Natalie for more than 7 years on three transactions - most recently the sale of our condo in Chicago. Natalie is perfectly professional, extremely helpful and just a damn nice person. Natalie is one of the best communicators I know - always available in any channel. Thanks again, Natalie!"



"We LOVE Natalie--she is genuine, warm, and shows the utmost professionalism. Her judgment was always excellent. As sellers, we followed her advice on pricing our condo, and received multiple bids. At the conclusion of the process, we received the price she told us we would get. She gave us fabulous advice from pricing to paint colors, from lawyers to rug websites, from timing to staging. Simply put, she made things super easy and was always in our corner."



"I have worked with Natalie one two transactions now and she has been great both times! I would highly recommend her to my family and friends!"



"Natalie is a wonderful broker who has worked patiently with us for two years as we looked to relocate and find a home in Evanston. She has a great handle on property values in the area and helped us weigh pros and cons of the properties we viewed."
