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.

[See this Post in its Original Format] A-B-Seek Seek and ye shall find. Age old advice. But it begs the question of when you seek how do you seek? Bottom line in our culture typically has been we want what we want when we want it. And so we become devotees of rapid provision. We go online with th...

  [See this post at The Real Estate Lounge Chicago blog] Late Night Phone Call It rang. The other night, late at night, my phone rang. Actually it shimmied.

[See this post in orginal format at The Real Estate Lounge Chicago] Saturday If I were from Boston (which I am not), I might say this - "It was a wicked busy day." I love the way those guys from Boston talk and use the word wicked. Maybe it stems from the fact that I have enjoyably witnessed my l...

[View in original format at The Real Estate Lounge Chicago] Let me presume that you're familiar with the notion of "any port in a storm." My take on these words strung together is the equivalent of "by any means necessary." And so here we are in Chicago in the midwest in the United States in this...
