Paul Blackburn


About Me

Paul's passion for real estate started while he was in college leading him to start his own development company at the age of 18. His company started with small rehabs in his college town of DeKalb and went on to complete condo conversions and luxury home restorations throughout Chicago and it's suburbs.

As a life long Chicagoan, Paul's first hand knowledge of the Chicago market place coupled with his degree in Business Finance from Northern Illinois University make him a tremendous asset to buyers, sellers, or investors. Paul has been interviewed by Fox News Chicago, Crain's Chicago Business and The Chicago Tribune regarding Chicago's luxury sales and rental market.  He has also served as an expert witness in the Cook County Circuit Court regarding residential and commercial property values.

Paul prides himself on his exceptional knowledge of the market place and his ability to keep his clients comfortable and informed throughout the entire process of selling or buying a home. Paul works to provide unparalleled service to his clients because he is not interested in working with them for only one transaction. Instead he strives to become his clients Realtor for life. Whether they are buying their third home or renting a studio in the city, he is there to guide their way throughout the entire process.


In addition to real estate sales, Paul leads the recruitment and training program for one of the top producing teams at @properties, The Phil Skowron Group ranked in the top 1% of Realtor's in Chicago.


Outside of real estate Paul enjoys traveling (specifically cruises), trying new restaurants, cooking, wines, and golf. Paul resides in Chicago's Streeterville neighborhood with his partner Edward. 


Clients are saying:

"After landing my dream job and making the decision to move to Chicago last fall I set out to find the right person that would help me find the home of my dreams. I met with several great realtors but Paul was the one that dove head first into helping me find the right property. He showed up to our first meeting well prepared and knew the Chicago market better than I could've expected. Any questions or concerns I had about specific areas or buildings he met with actual knowledge and information based on his growing up here as well as his professional experience. I have had realtors in the past try and sway me in certain ways; however, Paul listens and let me end up making the purchase choice that I needed with great support and patience. Paul not only facilitated the home buying process for me but he was there to help me with the ins and outs of the move and making sure every detail was right even after the close. I have no hesitation highly recommending Paul and I have even done so to a good friend in the last week. I have no doubt he will be as much of an asset for you as he was for me in my home buying process."
