A Fast Start to the New Year

Since the beginning of the year the market has been booming. We have already sold over $2 million in listings and have represented clients in another $3 million in transactions on the buy side. Not a bad start, wouldn’t you agree?

I am currently assisting a buyer with his first home purchase and finding that balance between what he dreams of and what is realistic for his budget. With another client I am searching for that perfect 3 bedroom penthouse with a rooftop deck in Lakeview.

While most properties are listed on the MLS there are many that sell before they are listed. This is particularly true with new construction. 1621 LeMoyne is a great extra wide 4 unit new construction building in Bucktown that we have just begun marketing, but will not be listed in the MLS until the project is closer to completion. A similar building about a block away sold in 2005 before it was ever listed.

Pinto Realty Group is now Chicago Home Estates. You might have even seen our new signs popping up around the city. Also, check out our new website at ChicagoHomeEstates.com which still has the same great access to the Chicago MLS.

Please feel free to call or email me anytime.
