Born and raised in Chicago, I could not think of anywhere I would rather call home! I've had a fascination with Real Estate since I was a kid and feel fortunate that I get to do what I love in my favorite city in the world! My passion, honesty, communication, twenty years sales experience, and expert negotiation skills make Real Estate a perfect fit for me. 

Moving can be a very stressful experience, I know, I have gone through it myself twelve times and consider myself an expert at organization.  I have great connections for anything you may need and will be there the entire way for you, anticipating your needs, guiding you through the process, and negotiating a great deal!

Having lived and worked in Chicago and surrounding suburbs, I am very knowledgeable about many neighborhoods and am an expert in staging and design. I would love to help you find your dream home, and if you'd like, even offer design ideas. If you are selling, I can offer staging advice so that your home shows at its best commanding top dollar and the attention it deserves.  Some of my awards and recognition include.

"Jim is very knowledgeable and honest. I felt prepared and informed throughout the entire process. As a first time home buyer he was very helpful and understanding. Jim definitely goes above and beyond as more than just a realtor."

"Working with Jim was beyond a positive experience for us from the first day we had a conversation about selling leading to the sale of our home recently. He was everything we wanted in a realtor. Besides being very experienced and knowledgeable about the market, he was very responsive, personable, honest, and his negotiation skills are on point! Additionally, he offered help and his time every step of the way making this process less stressful for us. We could not have done this without him. Not only was he a great realtor but we also gained a friend in the end. Thanks Jim for being a part of this new adventure for our family - it all started with your help in selling our house!"

"Jim was our best option and so glad he was our realtor. He sold our home in Hinsdale in 50 days which we could not sell the previous year that had been on the market for 6 months. He also provided expert knowledge of Chicago where we bought our condo"

"Jim was wonderful to work with on selling my unit. He offered suggestions to make it more appealing to potential buyers as well as updating the interior for a quick sale. He was able to target potential buyers and walked me step by step through the selling process. His knowledge is greatly appreciated. I highly recommend Jim."

Jim's expertise in marketing, staging and design truly sold our home. I would recommend anyone looking to sell or purchase a home to contact Jim Abbott. Jim will not disappoint. Jim will get the job done for you!"
