"Assisting Buyers and Sellers in Chicago and Neighboring Suburbs since 2004"
Illinois Licensed Real Estate Broker Since 2004
I specialize in the purchase and sale of new and existing single family homes, condominiums, townhouses, new construction, vintage/rehabs in Chicago and neighboring suburbs. My focus first and foremost is always my clients. Areas that I'm most familiar include the lakefront, downtown, north and northwest neighborhoods of the city. Clients of mine also reside in the towns of Oak Park, River Forest, Elmwood Park, Forest Park, Berwyn and other nearby suburbs.
Born and raised in Chicago has given me a unique perspective and insight of the city's ever changing neighborhoods allowing me the ability to recognize trends as they unfold. Listening very closely with each of my clients is the key to understanding their needs, develop an effective strategy, and accomplish those goals in the most efficient and stress free way. @properties also share my commitment in supporting the highest standards of service and representation that you'd expect and deserve.
Whether buying, selling, renting or investing I strive to excel in helping my clients reach complete satisfaction. Removing stress and guiding you through negotiating a successful contract and closing for your home is my bottom line. I promise to go above and beyond to either find you a home, or market and sell your home.
If you need to contact me I'm always just a phone call, text or email away and respond quickly to any questions you may have.
Prior to becoming a Realtor® I received an Associate Degree in Advertising from the American Academy of Art in Chicago and was an Art Director/Graphic Designer for 20 years. One of my favorite positions was as a graphic designer with the Chicago Park District for seven years. I'm passionate about my children, music, arts and sports, especially any team that has the name Chicago on the front. During down time I enjoy going out with my family and two young sons to explore Chicago, the greatest American city.
Clients are saying:
"Michael was the BEST agent I and my husband could have ever asked for! We chanced upon him at an open house and he was a breath of fresh air compared to the agents we had met so far. He wasn't just listening to our needs as we described them but also listening between the lines and showed us homes that met and exceeded our expectations. He is highly knowledgeable, experienced, professional, skillful and mature in negotiations. Most importantly, he is a local intimately familiar with the myriad city neighborhoods and suburbs, not just as they stand today but their evolution over the years. House buying is such a challenging process but he made it so much easier. It was such a peace of mind to know that we were represented by someone who had our best interests at heart at all times. If we are ever in the house selling or buying market again, there is no doubt about who would be representing us!"
"We hired Mike to sell a multifamily
building in a near west suburb. The building went to market with many complications; tax, tenant, and utilities issues. Mike's knowledge of the suburb's unique regulations and his persistence proved invaluable! Mike faced each and every hurdle with grace and confidence. I can say without hesitation, this sale simply could not have happened without Mike's expert guidance. I believe Mike can do anything, you would be making a huge mistake if you choose to use anyone else to represent you in a real estate transaction."
"Mike is a great real estate agent, with many years of experience. If you are looking for someone to genuinely care about "you finding your perfect home" and not just making a commission - I would highly recommend working with Mike. Plus just a wonderful human being."
"Michael is one of the most honest, intelligent, steadfast, and patient agents with whom I have ever worked. He understands the "market" and keeps abreast of changes and trends. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family--those people for whom you really care. Truly, Mike is one of the very best of the best!"
"Michael is an excellent agent. He is charming and knowledgeable and he helped me find a tenant. First of all he visited the property multiple time while remodelling to give advice. He then explained the process to me in detail and I learned a lot from him. He hosted an open house few days after listing and within less than 2 weeks I received 3 reant applications. I could not be happier. I highly recommend Michael."
