Tom McCarey Team
Ranked among Chicago's top realtors in each of the past five years and one of the top producers at a prominent Chicago brokerage before coming to @properties in April 2008, Tom owes his success to his clients and to his thoughtful (and aggressive) application of state of the art electronic and web-based technologies.
With respect to his clients Tom says, "At the end of the day my job distills to this one truth: my clients tell me what they want. I take great pride in devising and putting into action successful strategies that enable me to give them what they ask for."
With an emphasis on north and northwest side neighborhoods that include Bucktown, Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Lincoln Square, the East Village, Edgewater, Andersonville, and the Gold Coast, the strategies that Tom implements on behalf of his buying and selling clients are rooted in his encyclopedic knowledge of the marketplace and his commitment to making sure his clients know the market as well (if not better) than other realtors.
With respect to servicing the specific needs of his listing clients, Tom relies on what he calls his "Push Forward" technique. This technique relies on integrating state-of-the-art technologies such as online marketing and advertising, property-specific websites, a professional website and, most recently, his www.TheRealEstateLoungeChicago.com blog. A simple google search of "Tom McCarey" or "The Real Estate Lounge Chicago" attests to Tom's effective use of new technologies to "push forward" his clients' listings to the widest possible audience.
In addition Tom provides his clients with professional marketing brochures that serve as a backdrop to the experienced and professional representation he provides.
Tom lives with his wife and two sons on Chicago's north side (where he has lived since completing studies at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana). Tom works on a referral basis and welcomes the opportunity to assist you with your next real estate transaction.
