"Let Your Neighbor Be Your Realtor"
Robert (Bob) Adolfson
Illinois Licensed Real Estate Broker, Robert Adolfson, understands that when his clients make a decision to invest in real estate, they are jumping into a realm of excitement, emotion, and the unknown. As a licensed broker and certified lending professional, he is uniquely credentialed to assist with each step of the journey to property ownership. He knows his industries well, and will navigate the processes with you for outstanding results.
Known as Bob to his clientele, he has committed the past 15 years to the real estate & mortgage industries. He leverages a unique combination of experience as a REALTOR®, mortgage broker, and CPA, to offer expert input that the average agent cannot match. Participating in a real estate transaction in these different context's gives me the opportunity to consult better & 'deeper' than most Realtors. "The ability to predict the 'ripple effect' on a decision allows me to KEEP getting the best deal for my clients". Exeriencing that many more transactions than the average Realtor gives an "unfair advantage" to his clients. He uses that to sell property at the highest price in the least amount of market time for his sellers and obtain the lowest price possible with most favorable terms for his buyers. You will find him friendly, relatable and of the highest integrity. His approach to real estate has proven successful for his clients, yielding repeat business and ongoing referrals.
As a Lincoln Park resident Bob prides himself on being the local expert from not only from his professional point of view but also as a vested resident. He does this by being a member of the Chamber of Commerce, Wrightwood Neighbors Association and the Lincoln Park Community Shelter. He also gets involved in the community by referring youth sports at the local schools: J Parker, Katerine Cook, Britsish School and Latin School to name a few.
One of the most telling signs of Bob's knowledge & success is being selected to work with the @properties Relocation Department. Less than 10% of the agents work for the relocation department, as it requires the attention to detail and follow up skills that set him apart. "I have lived in the Chicago my whole life so to help transferees get acclimated to Chicago is just fun. It's a chance to brag about the best city in the world".
Truly an Illinois man, Bob grew up in Chicago's south suburban Lansing; graduated from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale; and currently resides in Lincoln Park with his new wife. He enjoys golf, traveling and scuba diving.
Robert Adolfson is a next level broker, professional, and person. He looks forward to working with you as you take your next steps with Real Estate and Mortgages
Clients are saying:
"We had an EXCELLENT experience working with Bob and highly recommend him whether you're buying or selling your home. Bob was very knowledgeable about our neighborhood and priced our home to sell. We were under contract within 2 weeks! He also had referrals for us to use to make necessary repairs to our home to prepare for sale. Be sure to take his advice regarding staging - I'm sure it made the difference is getting our home under contract within a matter of days. Bob is friendly, knowledgeable and responsive! Our negotiation and sale process was seamless. We will certainly reach out to him for future real estate transactions and recommend you do the same for yours!"
"As non-American we really needed support and assistance with finding our way around the "maze" of renting an apartment. Bob was not only very professional, but went way beyond to provide us with all the needed information and assistance. We are very thankful, and we highly recommend him."
"Bob does it again! A week to the day my property went on the market, Bob had it under contract for exactly the price I wanted AFTER receiving multiple bids from which I could take my pick. It was an investment property that turned out to be a great gamble for me, especially with such a quick sale that minimized carrying costs, including eliminating the specter of a vacant unit. Bob Adolfson knows what he's doing, that's for sure!"
"Bob Adolfson is one of the best people to work with in real estate. I'm a total newbie when it comes to investment properties (read: skittish and skeptical). His knowledge of Lincoln Park properties was essential to whittling down the prospects to what would fit the bill. By that same token, his dual expertise as a mortgage originator could not have been more valuable to me in sorting out my various options and what would work best for me financially, short- and long- term. His network of referrals for real estate attorneys, inspectors, mortgage companies that could get the financing done and done well/quickly, etc. was exceptional. He's assembled a really impressive team that provides a full-service experience from finding the property to sorting out financials to negotiating terms to closing. You really can't do better in the city, especially Lincoln Park. I'll be utilizing Bob again for my next property acquisition. A+++"
"Robert Adolfson did a marvelous job explaining what is going to take place what we needed to do and walking us thru the process. He was very knowledgeable and compassionate about the whole process and our feelings. We would recommend him to our friends and family. Thanks for being so caring and making the process so easy."
