The Real Estate Lounge Chicago

By
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. With my team The Real Estate Lounge Chicago I am affiliated with @properties. My success is partly due to hard work and market knowledge, but mostly it’s old and new clients choosing me. I hope you enjoy. I also hope when it’s time for you to buy or sell a home that you turn to me.

Staccato. That describes yesterday and much of the last week. It was busy in spurts, with the busy-ness of the business of the Chicago real estate market erupting in spurts. Kind of like the teletype machine back in the day I wrote for the United Press International broadcast desk in Chicago when...

Today is a bit busy. Just as yesterday was and so too the past week. A bit busy. Sporadic and occasional showings to clients both buying and selling homes in Chicago and dashing from here to there in a timely manner that would have a Swiss watchmaker grin with glee. Among items checked off the to...

April showers seem to have come early. Perched 11 floors high in our Lakeview condo raindrops delicately smack the window like errant angel kisses. The question that mumbles numbly through the back of my head is whether rain will be the form of precipitation from this point forth? Or, heaven forb...

A few nights ago Jackson rewrote history in the magnificent manner that a five-year-old will, telling the story of how mommy and daddy fell in love on the beach. While we have shared more than a few beach front holidays with sand beneath out feet, our initial meeting was a bit more urbane with t...

Maybe my son Lucas has it right. Last week when my wife said it was time to get dressed he responded simply and succinctly, I stay in my pajamas when I stay at home. I wear outdoor clothes when I go outdoors. Right now I am at home so I am in my pajamas. I will stay in my pajamas. Ah, there's my ...

On Thursday night we came back. With a series of bankings, deaccelerations, accelerations and hydraulic whinings that I don't recall in the past we made our way to a safe landing at Midway. Nice to get back still wearing South Beach garb and not have to battle the elements on the way to the parki...

We leave our fingerprints. Whether it is the Chicago real estate market or anywhere else where homes are being sold (or at least listed in the hope of being sold), we leave our fingerprints. Meaning what? Meaning there is a record of what was paid and when it was paid. There are tax records that ...

Sunday arrives. Awaited. Nay, anticipated. And unlike other Chicago Sundays, so many Chicago real estate Sundays, this Sunday is reserved for a position on the couch with a clear view of the tv to watch and (it is hoped) to enjoy the Chicago Bears. So far I have said yay! thrice in person and in ...

Sullenly it stands there, like its metalic brethren dotting Chicago streets. Parking kiosks I suppose they are called, though a name with "bandit" in it seems more apropos. Though years of ads intone "don't leave home without it," today I did. No excuses offered, but the combination of an early m...
