Welcome to my Website - Property Disposition and Buyer Representation

Fitting the pieces of the puzzle together makes real estate a constant challenge for Norm. When he lists a property for sale, he treats the marketing process as if he is selling his own property. The most important goal is to obtain the best price and terms for the seller. The key to reaching that goal for Norm is marketing a property for "fair market value" based on the highest and best use for the property. Reaching the right owner/user or developer makes it happen. 

When Norm acts as a Buyers Representative, he follows the parameters set, such as traffic count, visibility, and demographics, to obtain the best location and the perfect property. 

Your Relocation Specialist

If you find yourself in a situation that is causing you to relocate, it can be overwhelming, and sometimes scaring.  Having to relocate, whatever the reason, takes an experienced real estate professional that listens, can provide resources to help facilitate the move, has excellent communication skills and is focused on the job. 

Whether you hire me, or another agent with Century 21 Affiliated, you are hiring a “team” of professionals ready to assist you in a smooth transition to your new home.  Not only will I assist you with the purchase, sale or rental of your current residence, I will help to coordinate all aspects of the relocation experience.

The first step is to set up a meeting to discuss your relocation timeline.  Once we speak, I will provide you with the necessary information to make sure everything goes smoothly.  Schools, Drivers Licenses, Medical Facilities, Utilities, etc., I will assist you from beginning to end. And, though CENTURY 21®, I can connect you to  exclusive client discount programs with Avis, Budget Trucks, Choice Hotels, PODS, Lowe’s Home Improvement, Move Included, Smart Move and more.. 

It doesn’t matter where you are moving from or to.  I can assist in the sale and purchase of your home, either personally or through one of the 103,000 Century 21 Agents across the globe.  Call 1-800-624-7356 to get started today.

Personal Interests

Norm has been an avid sailor since he was 15 years old. His passion for sailing led him to  become a licensed captain in 2011. During his off hours when he's not actively engaged in marketing properties, you'll find him doing bare-boat and captained charters from Belmont Harbor. He also teaches American Sailing Association (ASA) sailing classes for those who wish to earn a credential for their expertise.  



Norm has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mass Communications from Southern Illinois University and a minor in Theater.
