Specializing in homes in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, Reatha Kay strives to help clients find the best options to meet their needs. With a 10-year career as a corporate and healthcare attorney prior to moving to Chicago, Reatha's passion for real estate began early on through her mother's real estate investment and renovation business. While her mother concentrated mostly on coastal properties, Reatha learned how to look past a space as presented and visualize its potential. Helping others visualize a space's potential is an important aspect of marketing the sale of one's home.
Reatha believes the saying "Chicago is a city of neighborhoods" truly reflects the variety of options people have when choosing where they want to live in the city. Each Chicago neighborhood has its own history and its own vibe. From high-rises to bungalows, the city is almost limitless in its options.
Residing in Lincoln Park for over 10 years and through her volunteer work for her neighborhood organization and her children's schools, Reatha knows that Lincoln Park has a variety of housing choices, price points and amenity options. She enjoys sharing her knowledge of the neighborhood, its history, and the different developments and what each has to offer.
Working as part of the Scott Stavish Group also brings the knowledge of a team which has sold over 500 units, totaling more than $200 Million in sales. Servicing Chicago and the North Shore, the Scott Stavish Group has more than 30 years of real estate knowledge servicing Lincoln Park as well as many other Chicago neighborhoods. So, if your interests lie outside of Lincoln Park, Reatha can be sure to pass you on to a local expert in other areas.
Reatha's knowledge of Lincoln Park and her interest and involvement in her neighborhood keeps her current with what is going on – all of which helps her clients find what appeals to them and meet their wants and needs. It's that expertise that keeps her clients informed and ultimately helps them reach their goals. Call Reatha to find out what Lincoln Park has to offer.

He explains the benefits and risks of every decision made throughout; offering his knowledge, expertise and guidance without pushing any of his own biases.
"For most people, real estate is the most valuable asset that a person will own in his or her lifetime. It's important to have someone to advise you through the buying and/or selling process that you can both trust and has the experience to educate you every step of the way. To me, that's what real estate is about. I never push a property onto a buyer. I try to teach my clients as much as possible about real estate to allow each individual to come to the best decision for him or herself."
Previous to working in real estate, Scott was the Vice-President of Development for a local restaurant group. Being responsible for the hiring and training of all managers as well as the opening of new restaurants allowed Scott to craft and hone some valuable business tools.
