Chicago's Hometown Broker
As a Chicago native, I've spent my life exploring the vibrant and eclectic communities from Northern Illinois down to the South Side's most prominent neighborhoods. From Andersonville to Pilsen, Chicago provides it's residents some of the most diverse culture from architecture, nightlife, food and so much more. I've been lucky enough to live my life immersed in Chicago's many neighborhoods and that's what makes me Chicago's Hometown Broker.
I am results oriented and have a deep understanding of sales strategies, relationship management, and product knowledge. I understand the emotional significance of buying or selling a home and work closely with buyers and sellers to carefully determine their individual needs and guide them through every step of the process.
Prior to my Real Estate career, I spent over 16 years working with some of the worlds largest companies negotiating and brokering multi-million dollar agreements. Clients appreciate my knowledge and commitment to making their needs my top priority. My sales and negotiation skills, along with my "client first" background, prove to be invaluable in my real estate career.
I was raised in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. I have spent the last 12 years living on the North Side of Chicago and currently call Andersonville home. I am an active member of the Chicago Metropolitan Sports Association and volunteer at the Lakeview Food Pantry. In my free time, I enjoy creating new recipes and entertaining friends and family along with exploring Chicago's vast cultural diversity and architectural prowess.

He literally saved us from a less competent realtor! His communication was excellent. He guided us through every step. And you get the feeling that you're benefitting from Mike's experience. He would give us both sides of a situation, explain the pros and cons, and if asked for, give a knowledgeable recommendation. I felt confident we were getting the best information to make the best decisions. I would recommend Mike to anyone who is looking for a competent proactive trustworthy realtor."
