Alexandra Solak has nearly ten years of experience marketing and sales. Her passion for real estate and working with people drew her to @properties. Alex was born and raised in Chicago's northwest suburbs, graduated with a Business Marketing degree from DePaul University, and is now living in the River North neighborhood of the city; suffice to say, she knows the city she loves very well. Alex has developed an expansive network in Chicago, and loves working with her clients to find them homes they truly love. Alex is part of the Bari & Elena Real Estate Group, which was named a Top 1% Producer Team by the Chicago Association of Realtors, and closed over 85 million in residential sales in 2017 alone.
Alex specializes in assisting both buyers and sellers in all of Chicago's hottest neighborhoods, and surrounding suburbs; and limits the number of clients she works with at any given time in order to guarantee the highest quality of service to each of her clients. Her dedication to sellers, buyers, and developers has resulted in 100% of her business coming from referrals. She is always eager to go above expectations to meet her clients' needs with a strong focus on communication; and with both her business knowledge and the support of her team, her clients have a decisive edge in strategic planning, marketing and the negotiation process.
Furthermore, with a passion for aesthetic and design, Alex has a strong interest in fashion, photography and interior design. Her love of travel has taken her all over the world from the peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro to sky diving in New Zealand to floating in the Dead Sea. When she's not traveling, she can be found around town with her French Bulldog Pierre or at the latest restaurant opening (her clients enjoy exclusive access to her coveted restaurant list); and stays active with yoga, pilates, skiing and working hard to improve her golf game.
Clients are saying:
"It was an absolute pleasure working with Alex on the purchase of our home. As first time home buyers we were nervous about the process and had a lot of questions. From the very beginning Alex made us feel at ease; listening to us carefully for what we were looking for in a new home, helping us refine properties to ones she knew would the best fit (we ended up buying the first property she showed us!) and coordinating the full buying process from offer negotiations to finding us awesome mortgage lenders, inspectors and lawyers we could trust. Beyond purchasing the home, Alex has been a huge resource in helping us make our new place feel like home; providing consultation on design and decorating (everything from floor colors and wall paint to furniture). She even went to our place the day they were staining the floors to make sure they would turn out as we wanted. Alex knows her stuff and is a pleasure to work with, we can't thank and recommend her enough!"
"First-time home buyers and we had an amazing experience with Alex and @properties! She was very patient with us every step of the way and made sure we felt comfortable throughout the entire process. Even after our closing, she made sure to follow up with us and has put us in touch with several of her other contractor contacts to help us with any remodeling that we may need. Unlike other brokers who treat this purely as a transaction, Alex has treated very well and built a strong relationship, going above-and-beyond to make sure we were happy with our place.
I highly recommend Alex and know we'll be using her again once we move (although it may be a while since she found us the perfect home)."
"Fantastic realtor. Alex went above and beyond at every step of the process, from early discussions on what we were looking for through offer and beyond. She has continued to help with any question we may have, and has made the whole process painless. Will be recommending to all of our friends!"
"Alex, is white glove professionalism! She delivered the smoothest real estate transaction for a challenging sale. Every detail was handled seamlessly and she removed as much stress as possible when moving and selling my home. Off market and full price sale. Thoroughly impressed and much appreciated!"
"Alex is such a pleasure to work with. She understands what you want and doesn't waste your time. Always available whenever I needed her. Did all the hard work for me. Sold my place very quickly! Thank you Alex!"
