real estate: Vranac Wine In Chicago-land - 04/16/12 01:07 PM
 
Finding products from the Balkans in a multicultural Chicago is not that difficult. Being from the restaurant family I'm always happy to try something new, especially if there is a great product that is in a way connected to my roots. 
Not too long ago I was visiting my family in Slovenia and they had to pack some home goods. The only liquid thing that I took was home made olive oil from Slovenian Istria and Grappa. Slivovtz from Bosnia was available but not to my liking. Some great ideas for next blog posts. 
My father offered a bottle of Vranac … (0 comments)

As a full time real estate agent I'm every day on the ActiveRain real estate network to find out more from the industry. Tips, motivation, latest news, trends, etc.

real estate: Is This Home On The Market? - 01/30/11 07:18 AM
Is this home on the market? This may be your question.
Not too long ago I wrote a blog post "Sick Of Looking Around The Web For A Home". With that post I wanted to show how easy it could be to get the accurate information with the help of a Realtor. I took a couple of snap shots to illustrate how the MLS looks in your inbox.  A home on the market that you are looking at on the market today, may be long gone, because the data on the big sites is not up to date.

real estate: Independent And Foreign Movies In Chicago Northern Suburbs - 01/09/11 08:05 AM
While searching years ago on where to see an independent movie, the answers were and still are the same. Landmark Theaters!
Landmark's Renaissance Place in downtown Highland Park is my first choice and it looks like the only one. The theater is located at 1850 Second Street. There is 3 hours free parking in the underground garage. If you come early you can have a quick slice of NY pizza across the street as an idea. I did drive to Landmark on Clark Street to see A Single Man by Tom Ford, since it was a limited release.

real estate: Dear Approved Short Sale Buyer - 12/11/10 11:51 AM
I have shown many short sale homes here in the area and only one of them was approved out of ten. Here is a short summary from both sides, as a listing agent and as a buyer's agent on an approved short sale. 
One of my listings was approved not too long ago and the bank was asking X amount of money. Since a short sale is a long, long process you will find that the approved ones are on the market way longer than a 100 days and most probably they had previous offers. Let's say the first buyer went … (3 comments)
