The Real Estate Lounge Chicago

Real Estate Agent - @properties
The brick and mortar of this blog is the expertise, insights and experiences I have gained as one of Chicago's top real estate professionals.

Thursday evening at 6.30 I headed home from one of my recently sold listings. I had just turned over five hours of my life to the longest home inspection I have ever endured.If you haven't participated in a home inspection lately (or ever), the point of this enterprise is to provide the home buye...
The Chicago real estate market today? I can't help but think of Mark Twain's quote, "Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated."Yesterday my clients finalized negotiations of an offer for their home in West Town. Listed in the upper six figures, this residence attracted the prospective buy...
