I represent buyers, sellers, renters and investors in Chicago from the Gold Coast to Logan Square, South Loop to Lincoln Square with properties ranging from the mid-two hundreds to the mid two millions. Over the past three years I've expanded my reach to the Western Suburbs including La Grange, Oak Park, Elmhurst, Downers Grove and Brookfield, just to name a few. My clients range from first time home buyers to sophisticated real estate investors.
I know how stressful the home buying or selling process can be, but it is all worth it when I know that I have helped my clients make the right choices.
Contact me with any questions. I will be more than happy to help.

Zaga Arsic has been servicing the luxury clientele as well as the first time buyers, renters and investors in the Gold Coast, Streeterville, Millennium Park, South Loop, River North, West Loop, Lakeview, Lincoln Park, and Chicago's lakefront.
Her level of determination, dedication and professionalism are as high for a sale of $500,000 condominium as they are for a property worth more than $5,000,000. Zaga is a top producing agent who has contributed significantly to the Fox Group sales which exceed $600 million.
Zaga's positive attitude, hard work, impeccable market knowledge, putting her client's interest first and her witty personality sets her apart. When she was changing her carrier to real estate, her main goal was to change the stereotype of the real estate agents, and as a result her clients are continually satisfied and 95% of her business is repeat and referrals.
Zaga loves the combination of Chicago's architecture, beach and neighborhoods where she lives with her husband and their children.

Why choose Jeff?
Because proven results and having a partner you trust are important. Real estate is a business of relationships and an exceptionally high percentage of his clients (over half) have come from personal referrals or are returning past buyers and sellers. Jeff has 11 years of residential real estate sales experience and has also been a real estate investor.
For such an important transaction as buying or selling a home or an investment, it's critical to select someone you trust; someone with expertise, proven experience and determination to get you the best deal. Working with both buyers and sellers gives Jeff intimate familiarity with both sides of the deal, which he always leverages to his clients benefit:
- for his sellers, Jeff historically averages list-to-sale price of 99% of asking
- while his last seven buyers paid an average of 4% below asking… and this in what is considered one of the hottest "sellers' market".
Don't rely on big faceless websites whose main reason for existence is simply to get clients. Such a big decision deserves someone you can trust, not to simply be assigned a random agent who pays the site for you as a lead.
Finally, Jeff is backed up by one Chicago's all time most successful real estate teams, the Fox Group (@properties) of which he is a founding member. To date The Fox Group has sold $983M in Chicago residential real estate.
"Whether my clients are looking for a home change or an investment, I measure success in their ongoing satisfaction."

I retired in 2004, having sold a successful (small) software company. I failed at retirement! Hated it! Also my wife said I could be retired, but not at home. So I looked around for a new challenge and found real estate. Love it! What could be more fun than not working for anyone else, not having employees, managing your own schedule...and helping nice people make one of the most important investment of their lives?
Mini Bio: Hometown, Anchorage, AK. The Colorado College(BA in Business). US Army Intelligence. Thunderbird Graduate School of Global Management (MBA). Advertising career, highlighted by the introduction of IBM PC's. Owner of a Software Company (sold it!). Began Real Estate Career. Married. Two grown children and a daughter-in-law. Two granddogs.
Real Estate: My primary focus in real estate is luxury residences in the City of Chicago. What a great place to work and live! Or, if you live elsewhere...what a great place to have an "in-town". I can help you find the best buys in the best buildings in Chicago...Gold Coast, Millennium Park, Streeterville, the Loop, River North, Lake Shore East, South Loop. I have also handled a number of Short Sales -- painful, takes forever -- but the result can be a really great buy.
A few beliefs:
- Buying a residence is an emotional experience for the buyer. My job is to make sure it is also a good business decision.
- Never buy directly from a developer w/o having your own agent! Developers do NOT have YOUR best interests at heart. You need representation (buyer represention is FREE. Take advantage.)
- In real estate, you make your money when you purchase. Buy well, and you won't suffer when you sell.
- Don't buy a bult-in negative. It will make selling difficult sometime down the line. (e.g. right next to the L tracks. Even if YOU get used to it, it will severly limit your pool of buyers when you want to sell)
- Aside from the # of bedrooms and baths, square footage, balcony, views, amenities....Where do you want to be when you step out the door in the morning?
- What sells today in real estate is in the top 5% of condition, and the bottom 5% of price.
- If you are selling, be realistic. Listing is not selling.
- You can waste an enormous amount of market time and effort by being over priced in the market.
- A good rule for setting your price when selling. Pretend you are a buyer. Looking at the comps...would YOU pay what you are asking?
