Experience. Innovation. Integrity.
With 16 years of Real Estate experience and more than $70 Million of closed sales, I am able to offer my clients top-notch expertise.
I have experience working on all aspects of Real Estate from Chicago's premier luxury properties, to commercial office space to developer and investors relationships. Maintaining ongoing partnerships has been the key to my success. I have a strong referral and repeat based business and take pride sustaining these relationships.
I have a phenomenal marketing/advertising team. We work seamlessly to keep up-to-date on cutting edge technology, have a vast Internet presence, and a direct/local platform.
When you invest your time with me you are investing in my network of contractors, inspectors, attorneys, mortgage brokers, designers, architects, movers and more. I have spent the past 10+ years building an amazing referral network.
I work closely with relocation professionals, and I know the time it takes to acclimate a person new to the Chicago area. I take extra time to show my clients the intricate details of each neighborhood from local coffee shops, to nannies and school districts, to bars and trendy hotspots. I also understand the communication needed to make a first time homebuyer feel comfortable with the buying process. Every relationship I form is a team effort and I strive to make my transactions as smooth as possible.
My clients include Buyers, Sellers, Renters, Investors and Developers. I hold an active Managing Broker's license for the state of Illinois. I am also a designated Relocation Certified Specialist. My areas of expertise also include Construction Management, Contract Negotiator, Real Estate Consultant, Marketing/Advertising Expert and Developer/Investor Relationship Manager.
Clients are saying:
"We highly recommend Alison. She was extremely helpful with our home purchase in Lake Forest and the move from CA to IL. She was patient, diligent and extremely thorough - fighting for the right outcome for my family and I. This was our first time living in Illinois and Alison helped us pick the neighborhood, mapping everything well to my families needs. Likewise, her input and guidance helped us find the right home for the neighborhood. With all the rain this area has been getting after our move in I'm convinced that without her input, our furniture would be floating in the basement of the home we initially considered. Instead we're on dry ground in a lovely new neighborhood and home. Thank you, Alison!"
"Alison helped with the purchase of my home 5 years previously. Circumstances required I move out of state prior to the sale of my residence. I couldn't have done it without Alison's guidance and assistance. I highly recommend Alison. I will ask for her help if I return to the Chicago area."
"Allison is incredibly responsive and involved in the entire process from listing to closing. Her communication skills are superb. Her calm demeanor is so appreciated during what could be a stressful life change. I highly recommend her."
"Alison is not only very knowledgeable about neighborhoods but she also evaluates your personal needs to help you determine which property is the best investment. We LOVE our condo!"
"Alison Wertheimer, Realtor, assisted my wife and I with the sale of our one bedroom condo in Chicago. We found she was very professional and easy to work with.
Selling a condo was new experience for my wife and I and we welcomed Alison's advice and expertise. She began by conducting a comparative market analysis which helped us set the sales price. She was very helpful by suggesting numerous modifications that would increase the property's appeal. Alison even recommended a contractor that saved us considerable savings over previous bids.
She developed a color brochure for all open house visitors and interested parties. She held 4 open houses on weekends. The real estate market was very slow but she was patient and did not force us to lower our sales price. All of Ali's recommendations paid off because we were able to sell the property for cash and at the asking price.
We were so pleased with Alison's efforts that she now is in the process of searching for a larger condo for us. We look forward to working with Ali and would not hesitate recommending her for anyone seeking to buy or sell their home.
