Seller’s Guide

What we think truly makes Chicago such a great city is the many culturally rich and diverse neighborhoods that make up it’s character. Each location has it’s own very special vibe and value to it. With 28 years of sales experience in these neighborhoods, I’ve come to know many of them very well. Let our expertise help you sell your property for the highest possible sales price with the least amount of stress. 

We’ve also covered many of the surrounding suburbs, which also have their own unique character as well. I personally have been a resident of Oak Park since 2017 and enjoy the influence that Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture has on so many homes out here. Our website details several suburbs in northwest & the Northshore where we have helped several past clients market & sell their properties very effectively. 

We bring an understanding and emphasis of what drives the value in many of these villages & cities such as its proximity to commuter train lines, expressways, highly rated schools and local recreation opportunities that fit specific lifestyles.

Why Us?

Markets are constantly in a state of change. The most common driver of this change is its reaction to the over health of our economy, interest rates and supply & demand. Helping you navigate these trends while marketing your property is critical to getting it sold.

We put care and skill into things like professionally shot photos, which we proportionally size to fit all the current popular public search engines like Zillow and Realtor.com, your MLS property description and your marketing brochure to list a few. We make sure that your property is shown in its very best light! We team with you right from the start. We walk you through all of your required paperwork, filling out the seller’s disclosures to even a pre- sale inspection if warranted. We are with you from the start to the closing table!

4017 W Ogden Ave, Chicago, IL 60623

Wow!!! Great value here, and a unique opportunity. Asking price is way below what it would cost you to build out this 3 level space with 7 washrooms. Top quality build included full electrical on 400amp, plumbing, interior layout, roof, windows, mechanicals and almost everything you can touch. Dual water heaters with a 75g and 50g. Sump and ejector pit in basement. Check out the Professional Commercial Kitchen that used to make over 1000 banana nut breads a day. Just bring your ovens and fryers as everything else here is ready to go. Check out that cooking hood too. New metal staircases and porches are solid and nicely designed. The main 2 levels have 4560sf but add in the finished basement and you have over 6000sf of usable space. This is a bargain. Location, location, location! Highly trafficked Ogden/Cermak/Pulaski Ave triple intersection. 4017 Ogden was a Church/Place of Worship. This would be a great spot for your branded Church to expand, or your chance to buy a move in ready space for your startup. Other good fits would be: Day care, restaurant, hospitality/event center, group home and anything that could benefit with the 2nd floor pro kitchen. Previously this was a multi-tenant property with 3 apartments upstairs and retail on first floor with bonus basement.
