I learned early on that you listen more than you talk, and you pay attention to the details. Knowledge, Community, Integrity = Results Nancy Claussen: The Chicago area has seen many changes. I have been involved in the real estate industry since 1979 and believe that one thing remains the same; clients want to work with a Realtor they can trust. My focus is on earning my client's trust by providing information, patiently explaining the process and being available to answer all their real estate questions to help then to identify and achieve their goals. With a real estate professional who is dedicated to providing the finest service available buying or selling a home can be a wonderful experience.

Counseling and Support has been my passion and what a place to do what you love but in this real estate industry! Buyers: First time, Seasoned, and Investment I enjoy working with all types of buyers within Chicago and the North Shore suburbs. When working with a first time buyer I would tell you what a good friend told me a long time ago, "a home is much more than a house. It is where you feel most comfortable, a reflection of who you are and the place memories are made." I know you want your first home to be just such a place and will make it my goal to accomplish this with you. For investors, my property management experience and saturation in the investment market allows me to advise you on the most important aspects of purchasing an investment including risk management, property management, zoning, and financing. For seasoned buyers I understand you want a home that is going to grow with your next stage in life and be a functional, enjoyable space. I look forward to helping you find the next property that will fit your short and long term needs. I bring an interesting perspective whether you are looking to live in the city or suburbs. Regardless of the neighborhood you are interested in. I can be your resource for local amenities, schools, parks, and great restaurants. Selling Residential Real Estate, I work my listings. I do open houses, broker opens, I show listings (I do not like lock boxes and only use them when absolutely necessary) and I do my research to be completely up to date on what is happening in the neighborhood of the listing so that I can best show your home and be a resource for potential buyers. I aggressively market your listing, particularly online, on all of the major home search sites including: Trulia, Realtor.com, Redfin, Baird Warner both National and Local just to name a few. Todays buyer is searching online before they are viewing in person and therefore your homes first showings are occurring virtually. The photography must be fabulous, the copy about the listing must be captivating, and the home itself must be in pristine condition and priced correctly.
