Diligent · Determined · Driven
“With a 20-plus year background on Wall Street, an MBA in Finance, a successful personal real estate portfolio and a prior retail business, I have developed a vast skill set to help clients achieve their objectives and goals. My concentration in the mortgage-backed securities industry was in marketing and sales, where I mastered the art of negotiation. I have been called ‘diligent, determined, and driven,’ and consider these the cornerstones of representing real estate clients to my highest ability.”

Steven’s personal shout-out to new clients? “Let’s get started!”
Clients are saying:
"Steve delivered a first class, professional and responsive partnership to us to sell our condo apartment in West Loop. We worked with Steve on both ends over a three year period and his expert guidance and direction made the buying and selling process as smooth and simple as can be."
"Steve is a great agent. He listened to what I wanted, helped me through the process and answered all of my questions, big and small. He went above and beyond, helping to move things forward when my work schedule got prohibitively busy. When I found a property I loved he did everything he could to make it happen, and now it's my home! I'm really grateful."
"Very satisfied with professional service and expertise Steve bought to the table."
"Steven helped me find this place, he helped me sell it and now he is helping me with my new condo. Very pleased with him!!"
"Steve did a fantastic job helping us find a condo property and providing support during our purchase. Our situation was challenging because we live in the New York City metro area and we had one weekend in Chicago to see properties and potentially make a decision. Steve put a list of properties together that highly met our needs. And after we found a property we liked, he was a total professional in helping us manage the process and communicating information and updates to us. He takes his fiduciary responsibility seriously and looked out for our interests in the transaction."
