I'm here to serve my buyers and create more than satisfied buyer clients. You can begin to experience my award winning service by filling in the buyer interests questionnaire on this page. I’ll jump right in with targeted searches and email alerts to put you in charge of your home buying process.
Chicago’s real estate has consistently offered excellent returns over the years. While 8%-15% returns in a year do happen, they should not be the expectation. With an inflation rate of 3%-6% annually, Chicago multifamily real estate is one of the safest areas of investment in Chicago. Your investment grows both through cash flow and normal real estate appreciation and through the stability of the US Dollar.
In our day to day work we are constantly in search of properties that will offer a superior return on our investments; from a single building and large apartment complex or development or just hold for appreciation, beach vacation rental properties, to property suited for large developments. We are particularly interested in large condo conversions.
If you are interested in investing in Chicago real estate call or email us to discuss your goals. We will keep you informed of opportunities as they arise. Most investment opportunities are backed up with titled ownership in the property being bought and or developed.
We are strong proponents of building homes for resale and developing raw land into building lots in Chicago as the investments can be relatively low yet produce high returns. While the number of homes acceptable to North Americans is growing daily, many areas still do not have an adequate supply for the many foreigners moving to Chicago. Investments in the right areas can be very successful. See our building vs buying page.
I should also mention that many new construction projects sell at significantly lower prices as construction begins. You can often gain equity of 6%-20% + buy buying at preconstruction prices. You must keep in mind that it will usually be from 3-6 months for condo type developments to 18 months for high-rise condos before they are available for occupancy. So if you are planning your move in this type of time frame or looking for a rental property this may be a good way to buy. Usually, a small down payment will hold your property.
We provide the list of the following services on our website.
Maybe you’re looking at office space for your business or a warehouse for your operations. Either way, we can help you identify an industrial property for sale or commercial property for lease in Chicago, as well as in the suburbs.

Better yet, why come back to this site everyday just to search listings? Sure, I love having you here, but part of my job is to help my sellers to efficiently evaluate, market and sell their homes. The first step in this process is my custom search and alert system. Fill in the easy form on this page and I’ll set up a custom search with your property’s characteristics. You will then receive automated email alerts of new matching listings and price reductions. It’s easy, automatic, and you’ll be on top of the market every day without doing a search!
Want a brand new property that has just been built, or is currently under construction in a certain subdivision? Maybe you’d like to custom design the interiors, or you don’t want to do any maintenance work on your new home, or you simply don’t want to live in a home with prior residents.
A mixed use property is a special type of property that is used for both residential and commercial purposes. For example, you could live on the top floor of the property, and rent out the other floors or use them as office space. These property types are great to develop additional sources of income, but they require special zoning permits from the county.

Schaumburg is a large village located in Cook County in northeastern Illinois, United States. The village is a northwestern suburb of Chicago and is part of the Golden Corridor. Schaumburg is located roughly 28 miles (45km) northwest of the Chicago Loop and approximately 10 miles (16km) northwest of O'Hare International Airport. As of the 2010 census, the village had a total population of 74,227. The village contains the world headquarters of Motorola Solutions and one of only two IKEA stores in Illinois. It contains the Woodfield Mall, the 11th largest mall in America according to List of largest shopping malls in the United States, which at most times has over 300 stores. Schaumburg's transition from a rural community to that of a suburban metropolis began with Alfred Campanelli's first large scale suburban-style development in 1959 and Woodfield Mall's opening on September 9, 1971. Schaumburg is bordered by Hoffman Estates and Palatine to the north, Rolling Meadows to the northeast, Elk Grove Village to the southeast, Roselle to the south, Hanover Park to the southwest, and Streamwood to the west.
Let’s cut through the hype you may be seeing as regards Internet marketing of Algonquin real estate. Sure, every agent worth its salt has a website. And, my website is better than most in presenting my seller listings to showcase them to their greatest potential. And, I'm really good at all of that SEO, Search Engine Optimization, stuff. That’s the stuff I do on my site to get as high in search engine results as possible to get the most in search engine visitor traffic.
However, hyping up this SEO and site traffic is really ignoring the reality of the Internet and any single website’s visibility; unless you’re Yahoo or Google. There is no single real estate website that’s likely to enjoy more than a single digit percentage of searches performed by buyers looking for local properties.
That’s because there are hundreds or thousands of real estate sites and they’re all fighting for searchers, but these searchers are also using a half dozen search engines or other resources to locate real estate in our area.
Why tell you this? I want you to learn about the power of “syndication,” and why I spend significant resources, time and effort in syndicating your listing information to a great many real estate websites much larger and more heavily visited than any local real estate websites. I have systems in place to have your listing on dozens of websites, including Yahoo, Trulia, Zillow, and others, and within days of your listing going live.
So, although I'm getting great search engine exposure, I'm not relying on it to be my only resource to sell your home through online marketing. Each of those sites to which I syndicate your listing will have links back to the original and complete listing at my website. It’s there that I shine in marketing your real estate property once I’ve attracted visitors from these other sites.
I get a great deal of our listing business from referrals by our satisfied sellers, so don’t hesitate, let me get started in helping you today!
Our online property list always available. Schedule showing any time.
