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. 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.

Four years ago I took to the basement treadmill and charted my path toward wellness and World Cup enjoyment in the wee hours of the morning.

The new on time is five minutes early. At least. Unless it's funding at a closing. Then it's all bets off. Then it's icy cups of unpalatable coffee in mostly inorganic cups.
