Buying or selling your home can be an overwhelming process. It's often the biggest financial decision that you will make. I've always approached real estate knowing that my clients are putting a tremendous amount of trust in me. I set out to earn that trust by first listening and learning. Every client has a different set of needs. Often my first task is to help clients organize their thoughts and to provide a roadmap for the transaction. Well before your home goes on the market or we go out for your first showing, I want you to understand the current market dynamics and the strategies we have at our disposal.
Throughout the process of buying or selling your home, my job is to make sure you are making well informed decisions every step of the way. Prior to joining @properties, I worked at a primary research firm helping investors make sure they had the right information to guide their investments. I've found this experience to be invaluable when helping my clients navigate the deluge of real estate market data. Whether it's analyzing trends in home prices, filtering through active listings or researching local school districts, I want clients to be confident that they have comprehensive information for the decisions they make.
My partner and I are proud of the service we provide. Take a moment to read our reviews. I hope it becomes clear the level of care that we invest with each client.
Our service to you doesn't end at the closing table. Whether it's advice on appealing property taxes, saving money on your utilities, recommending contractors or keeping you updated on the value of your property, we are your home ownership resource.
I'm also passionate about the environment. I've worked closely with both energy and environmental organizations to help Chicagoans have the resources they need when it comes to home efficiency and clean energy.
My wife and I live with our two kids in Edgewater. Working in real estate has given me the chance to meet lots of interesting and exciting people in our community. I hope I have the opportunity to work with you.
Clients are saying:
"We were so incredibly lucky to work with George! He was thoughtful, supportive, and incredibly responsive. This was our first time purchasing a place, and he could not have been more patient, constantly considering our needs and going above and beyond to look out for us as we made this big decision. I cannot recommend him highly enough! You will be in great hands with George as your realtor."
"George has been fantastic in understanding our needs and providing expert guidance through the ups and downs of the home buying process. He knows the market extremely well, offered solid advice through difficult negotiations, and acted as a calm and pragmatic sounding-board during the various emotional highs and lows that come along with deciding to buy a new home."
"I have been involved in over a dozen real estate transaction and this has been far and away the best experience that I have ever had! Could not be more happy! Thank you again George!"
"My husband, Chris, and I were so pleased with George's service throughout our condo search and purchase. Chris and I required a property with a large amount of storage, which we discovered was rather hard to come by. George was diligent in his search for properties that fulfilled our needs, always had our best interest in mind, and helped us to navigate the buying process as first-time home buyers. We were looking for properties during peak season, but always felt that George was fully dedicated to us as his valued clients. We would recommend George with no hesitation. He is kind, smart, hard-working, and honest."
"George Tully and his partner, Chris Gaggero, were referred to us by a friend, and we have felt so fortunate to have worked with them on our recent home search and sale. Working with this team gives you the benefit of two brilliant agents partnering as one, and we could not have asked for better advocates as we explored different neighborhoods and various types of properties during our prolonged search. George and Chris are extremely professional, responsive, patient, and wise, and they offered constructive advice without being the least bit pushy. When we were finally ready to make an offer, they prepared the documents immediately and gave us excellent negotiating advice that allowed us to secure a contract at a competitive price within 24 hours, before another offer could be made. We were also highly impressed with the inspector and attorney they recommended, and the professionalism of the entire team allowed us to come to a seamless close in a matter of weeks. Throughout, George and Chris were conscientious about keeping us up-to-date on how things were progressing, which gave us great peace of mind. We didn't have to worry about the process because they were taking care of everything so expertly behind the scenes. For our home sale, they prepared multiple comparative market analyses (given our drawn-out timeline) that allowed us to price our condo competitively, leading to a full-price offer in less than a week. Either Chris or George was present at each showing, and we received immediate, detailed feedback after every appointment. The marketing materials that they developed included beautiful, professional photography and a thoughtfully composed description of our home (a benefit of working with agents who have literary backgrounds!). They were also able to tap their wide network of colleagues to market our home broadly while also pinpointing specific clients for whom the property may have been a good fit. We could not have asked for better outcomes for our purchase and sale, and our only regret about wrapping up this process is that we won't have regular opportunities to spend time with Chris and George. Beyond their impressive professional talents, they are warm, kind, and good humored, and it was a joy working with them."
