YOU COME FIRST
I provide old school customer service. Working with you in real time, I get to know you and work towards your real estate wish list and financial goals. I listen to your needs and use my negotiating skills to ensure a successful transaction. My reviews speak for themselves. I work hard as your realtor to make the path to buying or selling your home easier.
Like any true Chicagoan, I got a guy (or gal) for everything. From mortgage brokers, lenders, real estate attorneys, title companies, building inspectors, Mr. or Ms. Fix-Its, I have access to many talented, skilled, contractors, across a wide range of practices.
EXPERIENCE AND THE MAGIC TOUCH
Whether you are buying or selling, I have the know-how and tools that you need to make the best decisions based on today’s real estate market. I am a fierce client advocate. I care about what you want when buying and selling a home. It’s important to me that we find what you are looking for in a property. You can think of my as your ally, someone who will be honest with you and will focus on what you want.
CHICAGO REAL ESTATE, A CITY OF NEIGHBORHOODS & SUBURBS
I’m both a Real Estate Agent and lifelong Chicago resident. As an experienced real estate agent I will guide you through the variety of real estate options. I’m highly knowledgeable about residential and small commercial properties in Chicago. From high-rises along the lakefront, to single family homes like the Chicago style bungalow, Chicago has something for everyone. With its network of neighborhoods, each has its own unique restaurants, entertainment venues and extraordinary people, Chicago is a great place to make a home.
There is no place quite like Chicago for its ambiance and variety in its real estate market. I can show you that buying and selling a property here does not have to be complicated. The city has its own real estate vibe and a constant ebb and flow. Chicago also has an extensive interstate system, connected to many neighborhoods. As a lifelong Chicagoan, I can show you around our neighborhoods and surrounding suburbs, each one with its own unique style and culture. Of course, this includes local park, schools, delicious food and the best local coffee shops!
NOW WE CAN GET STARTED. HI, I'M ELLEN
SOME FUN FACTS...
I LOVE music and art. In fact, it’s one of the reasons I love Chicago Real Estate so much. Every neighborhood has its own look and feel. The chatter of steel on the EL or the peaceful lull of my neighborhood breakfast spot (shout out to Cornerstone Cafe and Kopi Cafe). I understand that loving your neighborhood, and finding “your happy place” is important when choosing your next home. Oh, and I love to bake so you can count on some baked goods for your open houses and at closing.
A LITTLE MORE…
Whether it’s true or not, we Chicagoans say we can get anywhere in the city in 20 minutes. And while often it takes a little longer, I will spend the amount of time we need to explore the neighborhoods you want to see. Each has its own features and selling points that can help you decide about buying and selling your home.
I make home happen, it’s my thing!
