Our Client-First Philosophy
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how we work.
That said, in our experience as a Chicago real estate professional, we’ve also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting our clients interests first. This means keeping ourselves accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This "client first" philosophy has always been our approach and it requires us to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, we've found that the latest technologies are enabling us to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped us to extend the range of services we provide to our clients.
So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the Chicago and surrounding Suburbs areas, please contact us.
Independent Brokerage Vs. National Franchise
Some may think that when you list or buy real estate with agents of a smaller, independent brokerage, you are loosing services or marketing power... In reality, the opposite is true with our brokerage, Most of the national franchises operate as independent agencies and the individual agents have to pay for their own marketing services therefore, we are no different than any of national franchise except for the name. Since we do not pay the national franchise fees, and have a lower operating overhead, we spend more of the commission dollar that you contract for on actually marketing your property.
Our brokerage maintains an active marketing budget to support our agents' listings so that they do not bare the brunt of the marketing costs on their own. Your listing may not sell or have any activity since an agent affiliated with a national franchise may still not have enough money on their own to successfully market your property other than inputting it in the MLS.
With the use the use of advanced technology, we continue to find new and cost effective ways to operate and to customize a marketing plan that is individual to listing your home to help you get "Top Dollar" with the lowest possible number of days on the market, rather than standardize or no marketing plan that you may experience with other agents.
