I AM: A Full-Time… Trusted Adviser-A Skilled Negotiator-An Oak Park & River Forest Expert

Steve was Oak Park & River Forest's #1 Agent for all of 2016!!!  

People choose me because I am committed to serving their needs. My clients continually refer me to their family and friends because I brought them success in the first place!  My actions are timely. My advice is objective. My assistance is un-intimidating. My service is complete. My drive is to do nothing but help you!  

Are you looking to purchase in the Oak Park/River Forest area?  I am a 4th generation Oak Park/River Forester.  My wife, Julie, and I raise our own family here.  If you are relocating to this area I get it!!... There is more to your relocation than just finding a place to live.  Let me help you get your entire life started in OPRF. 

I take pride in being on top of this real estate market every day of the week. This is why buyers choose me. You don't need to worry about missing that perfect home because your agent was not familiar with local opportunities. And never be scared of contracts, negotiating, inspections, and critical transaction milestones with me at your side through every step. I have also successfully restored three vintage homes. When it comes to construction, I have lived through it all. Let my vast knowledge of local resources be your central connection for years to come.

Are you selling your Oak Park/River Forest area home?  It is a well-known fact that I utilize more technology-based marketing tools than any other area agent or firm! Professional digital photography, website advertising, paid-for optimal listing placement, search engine optimization, local and national print advertising, in-home marketing, area “new listing” mail announcements, personal & professional networking and 24-hour availability are key elements to getting a home sold in today’s market.  It is so important that your home is fully ready to be showcased the minute it goes live on the market.  Create the frenzy… the hype… the excitement!!... and the buyer will come.

Taking care of my customers’ needs is job #1 and leads to long work weeks. This is all I do, every day, seven days a week. Let me help you learn what to do and what NOT to do in order to get your home sold. If you are buying a home, your job is just as rigorous. I can help you with everything from home inspectors to mortgage brokers. Selling or buying? It is always about the details.  Let me, a local expert, help you get to that successful closing date.

"Steve recently helped me sell and buy houses within Oak Park and I highly recommend him for your future sale/buy. Steve was honest about my list price on my older home which helped solidify an offer within 7 days, which was in contrast to the prior listing time with no offers in 3 months. Within a day of my sale I had made an offer on a new home that Steve quickly jumped on.
Steve is extremely knowledgeable about Oak Park which is key when moving here. He was consistently available for questions, large and small, walked me through each step of the process, assisted with my moving process and closing. It was a stress-free process on both ends."

"Steve is the best. He handled our first purchase in River Forest, and then our sale of that home as well as the purchase of our other home. He is super responsive, very knowledgeable, goes the extra mile without you even asking, and is there from beginning to end of the transaction. We always knew Steve had our back."

"To say Steve is the perfect real estate agent sounds trite, but the accolade is warranted. We've now used him twice and give him perfect marks. He is extremely knowledgeable about Oak Park, having lived here his whole life and been its top agent for years. He is a very good communicator - he reads your full emails (imagine that), responds very promptly (rare), and explains everything as slowly as needed. Finally, Steve gets things done and never settles when other agents, lenders, photographers, or lawyers drop the ball. For example, our stagers had to cancel the day before the install because the designer had a family emergency. Oh well, tough luck, right? Not with Steve! He got them to provide a back-up the next day. Then, because the photographer couldn't do the next day, Steve took phenomenal listing photos and got them processed himself. Instead of a 1-2 week delay, our property was listed the very first weekend and he got an open house done on that Sunday, during some of the first warm weather or the season. We got info about showings via a great app in real time and he provided feedback from buyers' agents all the time so we felt in the loop about how it showed. After some comments about paint spots by agents, Steve paid for and set up some touch up. He even handled the lawn care after we moved out and no longer had a mower in the garage. As we got offers, Steve was very helpful about the negotiation process without being leading and allowing us to make good I decisions ourselves. Neither my wife nor I can really think of a single way Steve could be a better agent, and we consider ourselves somewhat picky about amazing service. You basically never encounter it."

"Steve was very detailed in explaining the steps of the selling process. He set my expectations and informed me how to proceed in each step of the way. He did great investigative work when we tried to establish the fair asking price for my home. He also was a great guide when were at the negotiating phase of the process. I would highly recommend his work."
