Per is relatively new to @properties, but brings to his new position a wealth of experience in real estate and related fields, including multifamily housing, land development, and construction.
Having obtained an M.A. at the University of Minnesota in Humanities, he taught for a number of years at the City Colleges of Chicago, where one of the areas he taught was the History of Architecture. After that he joined his father in building houses, and worked as a builder and contractor, specializing in historical restorations.
From his years of doing land development in Will County, Illinois, as well as in Tennessee and Indiana, Per is very familiar with the approval process for subdivisions and infill projects. He has worked with several condo projects, both as developer and as broker, and has a good instinct for appropriate marketing approaches.
Per's deep knowledge of construction issues and solutions, together with his extensive knowledge of both the Chicago Building Code and the International Building Code, makes him the logical choice for a listing broker.
An early adapter of all things Apple, Per focuses his marketing on the Internet. He is particularly taken with the potential reach of Adwords, and social media advertising, and supplements @properties internet advertising with his own customized websites and internet campaigns.
A resident of the Logan Square area for a number of years, Per now lives in Hyde Park where has lived for thirty years with his wife Vivian. He is an avid racquetball player, and one of the founding members of the Land Conservancy of Will County.
