"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:
"Robert sold us the property, working with my adult daughter. He kept in touch and a few years later helped us sell the property. He was always respectful and very competent, a complete professional."
"This guy is the rock star of real estate! I had so many showings it made my head spin. I got multiple list price offers and no messing around with credits, etc. And, he is a loan officer so he could offer great suggestions and advice to my buyer(s) to get to the right bank with the right product and how to make the deal work. Super smooth transaction. The only negative feedback I got from prospective buyers was that it went under contract too quickly. Awesome! Oh, and he’s a super nice guy, too."
"I have used Bob as my agent several times now on both the buying and selling side. He clearly has a solid understanding of the market and positions his clients for success on marketing their homes. On the buying side he creates opportunities to get the best value for their new purchase."
"Bob did an outstanding job handling the sale of my property. He is very well-versed with pricing and negotiation strategies to help maximize the value of your property. He also provided valuable insight on things that needed to be addressed before listing the property such as grout cleaning, painting and staging ideas. The online pictures and marketing strategies really helped showcase the property to potential buyers. I was very impressed with the whole process and would definitely recommend both Bob and @properties to friends and family."
"As we begin working with colleagues on their relocation to Chicago, I want you to know how thoroughly pleased I am with my broker, Bob Adolfson from @properties. He listened well to understand my needs and preferences and knows the market, so he was great at helping me identify a range of options that would work for Rick and me. He gave us the kind of candid, straightforward insight and perspective that really helped me trust his judgment. He is incredibly responsive; I think he works all the timecheerfullyand always got back to us very quickly when we had questions or wanted to talk. And hes just a really nice guy whos great to be around, which is important when youre going to log a lot of time in his company. He really proved his mettle this weekend as we zeroed in on our property and then negotiated our deal. He was a great thinking partner, with really good strategic instincts. And when the negotiations got complicated (as they always seem to dowhy is that???) he fought hard for us but in a manner that we would say was fully in keeping with our ADM values--with exemplary integrity and respect. As you know, we were successful. So, great guy, great experience, great outcome. I think other ADM colleagues will really enjoy and benefit from working with him."
