Call us at 847-255-9346.  We're easy to talk to. Sale prices estimated a few months ago aren't the same as today.  While the real estate market doesn't show the volatility of the stock market, it DOES change.  And it is changing.  Our years as realtors have made us acutely aware of the indicators of change, and we pride ourselves on keeping loyal clients abreast of what we see "coming down the pike."  Newspapers, on the other hand, are several months behind on their reporting of changes, especially locally.  So whether you're thinking of buying or selling, check with us for the current status of the market and prices.

Looking near and far?  We cover just about every suburb as well as some parts of the city.  No matter where you're thinking of buying, we can help.  We've had clients from as far away as Berwyn, Chicago, Naperville, Crystal Lake and Lake Forest.  

*All homes sold in cooperation with the MLSNI. Listings and sales counted in the total of 130 homes sold, also homes sold twice and 3 times are counted.
