Francesco found his love for real estate when he purchased his first condo as a flip project back in 2006. Prior to joining @Properties, Francesco continued his involvement with beautiful properties as a leasing agent for a luxury high-rise residential building in the Streeterville neighborhood of downtown Chicago. Francesco quickly developed great success in his field as someone who takes the time to listen to his clients and focus on the long term relationship at hand. His years of experience working/living in both the suburbs and the city displays his professional versatility and knowledge, which strengthen his passion for outstanding customer service.
Though formerly a Roscoe Village, Bucktown, and Streeterville resident, Francesco currently lives in Wheaton with his wife and three rescue dogs. Outside of work, he is an avid soccer player and a board member of Soccer Club Chicago, - a non-profit club that gives back to the communities they play in. Francesco is a bit of a foodie, loves traveling, and with his background in music, he has developed a keen eye for videography so in his free time he enjoys creating travel videos from his adventures.
Clients are saying:
"Francesco made the process simple and easy to understand. We were aware of all of our options, and he helped us narrow down the choices to make the best decision for our family. He is going to be my real estate agent for life!"
"My wife and I had an extremely positive home-buying experience with Francesco as our broker. In the initial phase of our search he was quick to refer us to properties that matched our specific requirements and, in follow-up, was able to arrange convenient times for us to view our preferred properties. In meeting with Francesco, he proved to be genuine and forthright in answering questions regarding the pros and cons of specific properties we toured.
After going through all the necessary, time-consuming steps with us to eventually sign a contract on a house, Francesco was supportive, understanding, and patient when we, later (after an unsettling house inspection) decided to terminate that contract.
Despite this frustrating setback, he helped us renew our search without skipping a beat.
In the end, after discovering our real dream home, Francesco helped make the purchasing process as easy as imaginable. As an individual who has never before purchased property, I was anticipating the protocol to be overwhelming, but Francesco helped make it feel rather straightforward.
On the day of our closing, it was great to have Francesco along with us to celebrate the momentous occasion. We realized in the process that he had become more than just our broker, but our friend and confidant, as well."
"Frank was FANTASTIC in every sense of the word to help me find the PERFECT apartment. He has exceptional knowledge of the rental industry, along with vast experience in the city and what each area truly offers. His availability was always often and convenient to my schedule, which can be difficult in a "hot market" where things get listed and rented almost immediately in Chicago. He took the time to hear my rental requirements, concerns, etc. and always sent me the best available listings. He truly found a hidden gem where I am at now. The area, the vibe of the building, if there were 6 stars as a rating he would get it. Thanks so much Frank!"
"I worked with Frankie he was a leasing agent for my apartment building in Streeterville. I had seen numerous locations over several weeks and none of them ever felt like "home", but I was getting down to crunch time to find a location and at some point I knew I was just going to have to pick. The Streeter was the last place I walked into that last weekend of searching, and from the moment I stepped into the leasing office, I knew I was home.
As a leasing agent, Frankie was phenomenal. I never felt like just another face in the crowd, or as some type of commodity. Through his engaging personality, we developed a great rapport. Whenever I had a question or needed a situation addressed, Frankie always asked the right questions and sought to understand what I wanted and needed. He was about getting me answers and solving my problems. Frankie took the time to listen and would always follow-up to make sure my questions had been answered or that my concerns were properly resolved. From the moment you meet Frankie, you will realize how much he genuinely enjoys spending time with and helping others which is an important trait in an agent. If I ever decide to buy, I know my first call will be to Frankie."
"Francesco was quick to respond to all our questions and couldn't have been more helpful. I would highly recommend him."
