Born and raised in the north suburbs of Chicago, Brian has a deep familiarity with the local real estate market that allows him to deliver an exceptional level of service to clients.
After earning his bachelor's degree at Indiana University, Brian returned home to become a licensed real estate broker, inspired by his family's background in real estate development and construction. While in college, he interned at a development company, where he conducted market research and assisted with site inspections to identify potential acquisition opportunities. This experience gave Brian in-depth knowledge of Chicago's neighborhoods and broader trends in the housing market - expertise that has translated into his career as a residential real estate broker.
Brian works with buyers and sellers across a variety of property types and price points, and is fluent in both English and Russian. His background in residential development allows him to approach each transaction with an eye for detail that encompasses everything from a home's architecture and design to quality of construction. As a result, he's able to enhance the marketability of a home when working with sellers, while helping buyers identify notable features and attributes that may not be included in a listing.
When he isn't busy helping clients buy and sell real estate, Brian enjoys playing sports and spending time with his family. He has helped raise awareness for the Lymphoma Research Foundation and the Chicago branch of Children's Oncology Services, which provides camp experiences for children with cancer. While in college, Brian led a team that raised more than $100,000 for cancer research, an initiative that was featured on the "Today" show and earned him the Lymphoma Research Foundation's Distinguished Service Award in 2014.
Clients are saying:
"Brian was simply the best I could have asked for. I didn't have as much time allotted for looking as I should have, and Brian made it incredibly easy for me to look at places I could actually see myself living in. He was excellent at compiling a list of places he thought I would like, he set up a wonderful showing day, and he was incredible at discussing with landlords and agents about what I needed or wanted. The best part, though, was how responsive he was. I could always get a hold of Brian when I needed to, and he was ready to help whenever I needed him. I never felt like I was searching for him, and I felt comfortable the entire process. Plus, he found me a beautiful, spacious place overlooking the lake for a ridiculously low rent. I highly recommend working with him; he will not let you down."
