Experienced local expert dedicated to enhancing the buying and selling experience.
Greer Haseman has spent 25 plus years honing her Real Estate expertise in Oak Park, River Forest, Forest Park and Elmwood park markets, with a special emphasis on historically significant or luxury homes.
Greer's extensive real estate sales and marketing experience is augmented by her past financial services background. Greer uses the tools of technology to create an interaction even as the media world continues to fragment. She has been a trusted advisor and multi-million dollar producing Broker-Realtor in the Oak Park & River Forest market, often achieving the highpoint in pricing in both communities.
Greer is a thought-leader in the industry, and is often quoted by the media regarding trends in real estate. She has been interviewed in Crain's and Chicago Magazine and many of her luxury listings have been featured in those publications as well as on the Channel 5 news.
Greer readily admits her philosophy has changed as the business has evolved. She knows if knowledge is a thirst quencher, technology has changed the straw to a fire hose, often not satisfying one's thirst. "It's imperative that my clients have enough information to make an informed decision, but it's also my obligation to help them harness the overload so they feel they have an authentic connection, which leads to positive results". Greer knows first hand that the devil is in the details, and she prides herself in her ability to manage and execute the critical details of her client's transactions from start to finish.
Greer has aligned herself with the @properties brand, as they are a proven market leader in innovation. Their high-energy approach and their first-class marketing platform appeal to her on every level. The tools available to her at @properties, both on the selling and buying side of the transaction, are second to none.
An Oak Park native, Greer knows that architecture is often an important part of what unifies a community. The historic nature and diversity in housing stock in the area are of special interest to her, as her childhood home is on Forest Avenue, in the heart of the Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie School of Architecture Historic District.
Greer is a current Board of Director for the Oak Park Area Association of Realtors. She is a former Board of Director for the Oak Park Regional Housing Center and is a supporter of its ongoing mission of promoting diversity. Additionally, she serves the Realtor community on the Ethics and Arbitration Committees. She was awarded the Oak Park Area Association of Realtors, Realtor of the Year Award in 2011 and has been consistently nominated by her clients to receive the 5 Star Real Estate Award. Recipients of this award are highlighted in the October issue of Chicago Magazine each year.
Greer is an avid environmentalist and animal rights advocate with a deep appreciation for the great outdoors and a public lands advocate. She tries to string a few days together here and there so she can enjoy a bit of skiing--both water and snow- depending on the season. A huge Blackhawks fan, she can often be found cheering them on at a local watering hole with her childhood friends from Holmes School and OPRF. She treasures those long-standing friendships, to her, they are the foundation of what made growing up in Oak Park and River Forest so very special.
Clients are saying:
"We listed our house with Greer. Her knowledge of the area and what our realistic expectaions should be was outstanding! She was not only responsive to our questions and concerns during the process but she was proactive in informing us of what to expect at each level of the sale. We have a difficult work schedule and she did a fantastic job of scheduling showings to have minimal to no impact on our daily lives. All in all it was a great experience and I don't know how it could have gone any better."
"I just want to pass along my gratitude to Greer Haseman who recently handled the sale of my home. Her calm, patient, caring concern through the whole process was truly a God-send. She was keenly aware of my discomfort with the entire process and made certain she thoroughly answered all my questions and was available to me when I needed her. Her expertise in pricing my home was the first trust I placed in her; she knows the market and priced my home right. Her professional marketing of my home was so comprehensive and impressive, my house sold within two weeks for approximately 4% less than asking price. She referred me to a fabulous attorney who handled matters expertly. Her competence, attention to detail, honesty and business acumen made the sale of my home as efficient and stress-free as possible. I want to tell everyone in the village: This is who you want to represent your interests in your next real estate transaction!! Greer is the best."
"This was our second time working with Greer. Two different scenarios, one on the buy end , the other on the sell end. What a great way to get to know your realtor. Greer is a professional. She is proactive, reactive, mindful of what is happening in the market, the neighborhood and in your life !
I would feel comfortable recommending her to family and friends."
"Greer Haseman, is everything you want in a real estate professional. Before making specific comments about Greer let me add some context. In the last 30 years I have bought and sold three homes in Oak Park, Illinois and one in Minneapolis Minnesota. During that time period I have been involved with executive sales, marketing and contracting. When it comes to real estate agents I have very high expectations.Greer met and exceeded my expectations. She knows what to do, when to do it and gets things done well before deadlines are due. During the sale of my home I was in Florida and Europe during the entire process, except for the last few weeks when I came back to pack and move. Greer made my life much easier by orchestrating multiple facets of the transaction, quickly and calmly on my behalf. Greer has a broad view of the role of a real estate professional, much more so than in any of my previous experiences. She provides the value that you should expect when working with a real estate agent and sets the bar very high for her competition. I can recommend Greer Haseman without hesitation"
"We listened very closely to the advice and counsel of our broker, Greer Haseman. As a result, we sold our home in 4 weeks. Greer was professional and respected our feelings about our home. She gets our highest recommendation."
