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.

[This is a cross post from my primary blog http://therealestateloungechicago] I thought of an old friend yesterday as we zipped through Rogers Park for a mid-evening jaunt to Best Buy last night. Jerry Riggs, the kid who could (or thought he could) concoct anything from nothing. You may know the...

It happened yesterday. Jackson asked to ride another kid's bike at "The Choo Choo Train Park." And sure enough, with a little boost he continued on his merry two-wheeled path. It wasn't a trek across the Pyrenees but it was the start of what likely will be a lifelong love affair of the bipedal v...

Did you hear about Steven Slater? First he lost his cool and probably his job as well. Slater is a flight attendant. Was, anyway. He had a scuffle with an early-to-rise passenger when their flight landed and before it made the gate. The passenger refused Slater's admonition and took down his bag...

The president just flew over my Edgewater home. The roar of his chopper and his flying armada filled the sky for minutes prior to his arrival above, filling my chest with a sense of imminence. And then they appeared, majestic and aloft, somewhat staggered in their flight plan, immediately overhe...

One of the things I enjoy doing is establishing an online imprint for my listings and my overall work. More than 8 in 10 people lace their running shoes to dash online to begin, continue and complete their search for a home. Just two days ago, days before my new single family rental listing hit t...

Lately I have been thinking of guys I went to college with. Hah, ending the sentence with a preposition conjures up on the finest fellows ever I crossed paths with, Eric Kizer. Great guy was Eric. And taken from us far too soon. A repository of arcane quotes, statements, notions and blurbs such ...

Work. Like pastors at the pulpit, real estate agents ply their trade on Sundays. And while our effort is not necessarily steeped in brimstone like some of the more fiery holy orators can be, for those among the flock who seek the edenic pleasure of the perfect home, the strain of the metaphor is...

Two quarters, eleven pennies, seven dimes and four nickels. Three Hotwheels. And a small Altoids tin. My sons are four and three. These items came from their pockets tonight. In what order and according to whom? I can't tell you, though typically Jackson (four) is prone to carrying multiple cars...

The funny thing about yesterday's open houses is that both the Lincoln Park manse listed at $3.5m and the Lakeview condo at just more than one tenth the price did not attract visitors until the last five minutes. At the Stuart Rose home at 2662 Geneva Terrace a young couple came first followed b...

Refuge was granted today. After an endless series of scratches etched on a stray board  to suggest days where the heat simply suffocated today ambled in at a delightful sub 90. Blessed relief. Don't get me wrong, I am not a hot day naysayer. I revel in the glisten that gathers from the slightest...
