STOP LOOKING.START FINDING.
Chad has 15 years of experience trading futures and options prior to becoming a broker. His breadth of experience includes trading treasuries, equity indexes, and commodities on numerous exchanges in Chicago, New York, Osaka, and Singapore. This unique business background gives him a keen insight into financial and housing market trends, and how they will affect real estate. The attention to detail and ability to multitask necessary in a trading environment translate perfectly into real estate, where you can be sure to experience a smooth transaction when buying or selling your home.
Chad recently joined @properties as part of a leading real estate team because @properties is the No. 1 full-service residential broker in the city of Chicago, 2nd largest brokerage in Illinois, and 11th largest in the United States. But his real estate background goes back much further and runs deeper than that. Growing up, his father owned his own real estate brokerage, a property management company, and a development company, and Chad was involved from a young age in many aspects of real estate. He also currently owns and manages investment property. So coming back to real estate after a career in trading and finance was "like coming home."
As a result of his vast experience, Chad's clients receive something far more valuable than his expert real estate and market advice. They also receive the confidence they've made the right choice. When listing a home, you can count on the use of the latest marketing technology in the industry, spanning every medium. In addition to the standard brochures, mailers, post-cards, newspapers, email, websites, Multiple Listing Service, and street-signs, Chad also uses extensive company and personal marketing networks. Chad's approach to assisting buyers hinges on discovering the needs & wants of his clients, to efficiently comb through all the available housing for the perfect fit.
Chad graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and grew up near Milwaukee. In the past fifteen years, he has lived in both Chicago and San Francisco. He has lived in many different neighborhoods around Chicago including Lincoln Park, Greektown, Downtown, Bucktown, Logan Square, South Loop, and currently lives in the Lakeview.
When not working tirelessly to market or find your new home, Chad's favorite things to do are sailing and running in the summer, snowboarding in the winter, reading, playing guitar, and spending time with his family year round.
"The most exciting and gratifying part of my job has been overcoming all the inherent challenges that arise when you're buying or selling real estate. I like meeting new people, and helping them accomplish their real estate goals. I strive, in every transaction, to do such a good job that my clients feel comfortable and compelled to recommend me to anyone they know that may need a Realtor. If I can do that, I know I've done my job."
Clients are saying:
"Chad was so helpful, patient, and knowledgable during our home searching and buying experience. We were lucky to find him when we did and will definitely contact him again in the future."
