Vendor List


        

 

This is a list of vendors that I have worked with personally within the past or have been recommended to me by other agents at @properties. Before purchasing a property, you should contact a mortgage lender to attain a pre-qualification. I strongly recommend working with a Real Estate attorney in Illinois as it is a very specialized process. A Real Estate attorney will have a better skillset to navigate the ins and outs of a Real Estate purchase and negotiation. Lastly, hire a home inspector to tour the property and give a professional opinion during the contract negotiation period.
