About Me

Erik Sachs joined @properties in 2014 after owning and operating his own real estate brokerage and development firm in Chicago for over 12 years.  During a +20 year career in real estate, Erik has developed a wide base of experience not possessed by most Realtors.  Erik formed Team Sachs to provide industry leading service to clients in Chicago and the Western Suburbs.


Erik and his wife have three young boys and recently moved from Chicago to Naperville.  Similarly, Erik has helped many clients sell their home in order to relocate out of Chicago or buy a larger home to accommodate a growing family.  Erik understands that buying and selling a home is usually the largest financial transaction his clients make in their lifetime. Whether helping a client buy a first home or selling in order to buy a new home, Erik's years of experience and expert counsel help ease the anxiety of selling and purchasing a home. 


Investors need Realtors to represent them that have working experience in all facets of making an investment work.  Erik's background in distressed property acquisition, development, property management and general contracting provides next level deal sourcing and capitalization for his investment clients.

Clients are saying:

"Erik is an amazing broker. His knowledge of construction services was very helpful as my wife and I browsed every type of house on the market from fixer-uppers to move-in ready. He found my us the house of our dreams in a very competitive buyer's market. With his help, we were able to navigate through the uncertainties that all first time home buyers face. We were in competition with THREE other buyers for our house and Erik designed an offer that beat all others while retaining value for us. He will be my very first call if we ever decide to buy or sell real estate in the future."
