"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:
"Bob is awesome. He sold me my first home and it was not a question who I would use once it was time to list. He is responsive, very knowledgeable and wonderful to work with! I can't recommend him enough to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He's the best!"
"Bob is a long time resident of Chicago and has the local knowledge and experience to navigate Chicago's real estate market. Throughout the buying process, Bob was very responsive, answering/returning calls/emails/texts promptly, especially during contracting and closing. Bob is pragmatic in his approach and is not afraid to "tell you how it is". His experience was apparent during the contracting and negotiation phase of process, where he expertly handled negotiation with the selling party.
In Chicago's competitive real estate market, you need a professional who has deep local knowledge and extensive experience. Bob is that professional."
"We are extremely happy with Robert's service and consider ourselves fortunate that we had him in our corner during the pandemic.
We left Chicago several months ahead of the sale. Robert found contractors to fix up our places as well as staging. We ended up with multiple offers and eventually went with the one that is almost $20K above the listing price."
"Bob was amazing! My husband and I were buying our first house and he patiently walked us through the whole process from start to finish. Any time we had questions (and there were a lot!) he was so willing to help and reassure us with good advice. We ended up finding an amazing place and would highly recommend Bob to anyone and everyone. I’m looking forward to working with him again in the future!"
"Second time working with Bob. He helped us buy a loft back in 2016 and helped us in 2020 to buy a second property in the same neighborhood. He helped us find a home as well as financing. He made the process easy even though we were buying from another state."
