I Am Your Full-Time:  

Trusted Advisor * Skilled Negotiator * Local Oak Park & River Forest Expert

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.

"After living in the city for over 10 years and having two kids, my husband and I were looking to move to a safer community with good schools. We have friends who live in Oak Park and fell in love with the area. When we decided to move here, we worked with a realtor who we liked but found ourselves doing a lot of the searching on our own. After several frustrating viewings and feeling like we were wasting time seeing homes that didn't meet our needs or weren't in our budget, a coworker referred me to Steve. Immediately he took the time and effort to get to know us and what we were looking for. One of the best aspects of working with him was the immense knowledge he has about the area. As a lifelong resident, he could tell us the pros and cons of each home. He was very knowledgeable of the buildings and their history as well as the local amenities and schools, including the preschools. He helped us through every step of the process. We found our dream home the first day of viewings and had our offer accepted in an hour. He was incredibly helpful throughout the rest of the process, connecting us to others in the community who can help us secure the sale including broker, lawyer and assessor. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and owe it all to Steve. If you're looking for a realtor who truly knows what he is doing and can get you and your family the home you want, we highly recommend Steve."

"Steve was an absolute joy to work with and we would highly recommend him! He is very knowledgeable on the current market and provides a realistic expectation of the outcome. With him we had a true partner on our side during our sale where he maximized our property value. We also used his services in our search for a new home. His expertise was indispensable during negotiations and providing us the true market value for the properties we were interested in. He was also very patient and always available for any questions we needed answered. Five stars! Will absolutely work with him when we come back to Chicago. Thank you for you great service, Steve!"

"Great experience working with Steve. He works quickly to get things done and is always available for questions and concerns which come up along the way. At the outset, Steve explained how he believed things would turn out and I was impressed with how accurate he was."

"Steve impressed us as the seller's agent when we were the buyers of the home a few years ago so we knew we had to hire him to help us sell the same house a few years later. Super accommodating to our schedules, professional, funny, friendly, knowledgeable, genuinely nice Oak Park local who knows his stuff. He successfully helped us sell our home just $9k below asking price and helped us find a new home within a tight time frame. Fast forward a year later, he recently helped us with another purchase for my parents who are relocating to Oak Park. Same high level service and commitment. Top notch - hire him!"

"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."
