My Client-First Philosophy

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my experience as a Chicago real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.

This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

Whatever you're a first-time buyer, seeking to sell, upgrade or experienced investor. Rather then renting and paying somebody's else mortgage you can buy and pay off your own house.  I also have a tremendous amount of resources provide you with accurate answers regarding the real estate market.

I look forward to speaking with you and discussing your home buying and selling needs.You can call me at 224-425-2853 or email me

Rent vs Buy

While working with first time home buyer I noticed that for a lot of clients buying process  can be very stressful.As a first time home buyer, it's natural to suffer some anxiety during the process. Often, first time byers will experience what's known as buyer's remorse. When it hits, remember why you decided to buy a house in the first place:


  • Greater stability
  • Good investment
  • Equity builds
  • First home often leads to better home
  • Greater individuality in décor/space arrangement
  • Sense of security


  • No tax benefit
  • No investment in or from the property
  • No equity
  • Rent payment can increase
  • Possibility of eviction

Short Sales: FAQ's

What is A Short Sale?

A short sale is the sale of the property for less than what the owner still owes on the mortgage .It's an alternative to foreclosure when a homeowner needs to sell and can not longer afford their payments. Bank agrees to accept less then amount owned to pay off a loan now rather than taking the property back by foreclosure. Lenders agree to short sale because they believe it will net them more money than going for long and painful foreclosure process. Also they think that property will be in better condition if sold as a short sale.

Why Should I Choose A Short Sale Over Foreclosure?

A homeowner who loses a home to Foreclosure is ineligible get new mortgage for at least 5 years. If homeowner decide to sell their property in short sale they can buy new home as soon as after 2 years. Foreclosure also affect your credit score for over 3 years. Credit score can be lowered anywhere from 250 to over 300 points. When you go through short sale only late payments on the mortgage will show and after the closing mortgage will be reported as paid or negotiated.

Who Pays Real Estate Commission During The Short Sale?

Real estate commission and all the other costs(attorney fees, unpaid taxes, village's inspections etc.) are being paid by the bank! Seller is not paying real estate commission!

How long Short Sale Process Takes?

It depends on the bank and how soon we can get an offer. It can be as soon as 30 days or as long as 9 months.
