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.

And it happened after a watermelon decided to heave and sigh and hiss and slowly sputter its innards through ...

[See this post in its orginal format at The Real Estate Lounge Chicago] Empathy, as I understand it, is my ability to feel somebody else's pain. More often than not I am adept at feeling empathy. But earlier today I came face to face with an instance where I simply couldn't do it. It came in the ...

The weather? Frightful. But my obligation was to field phone calls this morning at my office at Clybourn and North. So with the Droid alarm chirping through my cotton-infused pate this morning I made my way southbound to serve as the online expert to house hunters and condo seekers participating ...

The auction team came last week. Mostly men, mainly white. Their hands showed the markings of occasional manicures. And they had a propensity to stand with feet splayed, arms crossed, hooking their thumbs in the crook of the opposing arm. Chewing mints as they nodded, always looking away from the...

Back in the day the best reads in the Chicago papers came on Thursdays or Fridays when Roger Ebert was presented with a really bad movie. One of the finest of film reviewers in America, Ebert was at his best (and funniest) when he had a chance to sharpen his pencil and scribble notes about the wh...

Synchronicity? When apparently unrelated things occur. But when all is said and done it turns out that the things weren't all that unrelated after all. I thought of synchronicity today.
