Question- Where can I search for the most current listings?

Answer- You can search for properties listed with many different companies throughout the Chicago area right from this site. Often times however, the best buys and foreclosures never hit the market. If you have a specific property or type of property in mind, don't hesitate to call or email me with a special request.

Question- Do I have to register to see listings?

Answer- NO! I believe you should not have to divulge personal information to search for properties. If you want to sign up for daily updates you will have to register or you can return to my site as often as you like.

Question- Where can I find out about the communities you cover?

Question- Where can I find school report cards?

Answer- Here is a link to the Illinois School Report Cards. You can find out more about schools on my School Page or feel free to ask me questions or request information about local schools.

Question- How is the market?

Answer- The real estate market is always changing and very local. It is no secret that the last couple of years have been difficult but there are still people moving every day and I have been fortunate to help many people both buy and sell.

Question- Is there any mortgage money available?

Answer- Mortgage money is available and at very reasonable rates. The key to getting a mortgage today is using a lender who is reputable and experienced. It is very important that you evaluate lenders on more factors than just the rate. Also it is important to understand the lenders guidelines. I am fortunate to work with some of the best mortgage lenders in the area and will be glad to refer you to several.

Question- Why should I use you to buy or sell?

Answer- Experience, proven track record, world class marketing. I have the most enthusiastic approach to real estate you have ever come across. I tackle challenges with a determination to succeed, search for solutions where others see problems and I know how to get things done. One more thing, I'm fun to work with.
