You are First and Only.
What does Enlightened Realty mean?
Homeowners need a champion.
Homeowners—currently owning your own home or aspiring to it—You are not a gold strike to be mined by a broker for a commission. You are a person who needs honest, heads-up, hands-on help with the many decisions that are part of making a change of home, whether you're presenting your home for sale or purchasing. Always, but especially now, Homeowners need a champion to stand with them and for them.
You're not always getting one.
homeowners deserve a champion.
Unfortunately, even my own industry, real estate brokerage, finds brokers lacking. A National Association of Realtors study concluded that the realty broker population “is saddled with a large number of untrained, unethical and/or incompetent agents.” However, over 90% of home real estate transactions are conducted with the help of brokers, showing that people like you want and need a competent, trustworthy advisor who puts you First and Only. I offer to be your champion with #actualcaringincluded
Because it is about you, First and Only. Why to consider me as your trusted consultant.
A 2016 survey of Millennials, a tech-smart group, says they’re using smartphones, tablets, laptops, apps, websites, texts, emails for self-directed home research. On neighborhoods, prices, comparables, financing, et cetera. Yet, before moving ahead most are seeking “a human touch and trusted advisor,” a listener to their desires and believable interpreter of the information and data who can guide them to fulfilling their goal. Someone about whom they feel confident will make them
First and Only. Whether you're from MillennGen, Boomers, or the Greatest Generation,
you deserve that same thing.
That means from the start, all the way through the many steps after signing a contract, when inattention, missteps, agitation and anger can threaten a closing. And in a lot of transactions, all of them happen. For the seller and buyer, it's emotional. My role is to keep steady, advance your positions,
monitor everybody’s work and attitude in your transaction including the other side’s people,
to steer everyone to the timely handoff of the keys.
When your and my personalities and philosophies click, things just go better. Our viewpoints may still sometimes diverge and I'll present my reasoning based on facts and experience. But law and ethics say that the broker carries out their client's decisions without coercing the client into them.
I fully subscribe. You are in control.
Real estate transactions can be smooth, pleasant affairs. They can also be testing, trying and tense. It’salmost as inevitable as sunrise that there’s some turbulence along the way. My experience is that ourbeing in alignment is most likely to result in your satisfaction at closing and after.
My promise is to do my best for you always, in all ways. To put your interests First and Only.
To listen. And to make business a pleasure.
If you find my philosophy works for you, please consider our working together.
Call me at 312-488-1010 to discuss your homestead desires and let's make them happen!
First and Only
Serving you with diligence, empathy, sincerity and an upbeat attitude
You don't just come first.
You are the only one in line.
Residential real estate representation is my profession since 2004. It’s not my job, hobby or part-time diversion. Your home is serious to you. My profession is serious to me (but taking myself over-seriously is not). My offering to you is more than my real estate experience since 1998. It’s the evolved experience of a life, a varied career working to find and implement solutions, determining to take the honest road, and making my clients First and Only.
You have a simple expectation.
honest, smart, thoughtful guidance.
I’ve enjoyed the different phases of my career including broadcasting, sports and advertising. Now freed from corporate edicts, I finally have full control to conduct my real estate consultancy on the right moral principles--combining honesty, knowledge, experience, reason and human sensibility to gain the best possible result for my clients. And hopefully help you enjoy the process whenever we can.
Always striving for the best for you.
Let's be upfront.
The most frequent concern people express about real estate brokers, maybe about anyone they hire to do a project:
“Do they care more about the money they can make than about what they’re supposed to do for me?” I wouldn't bring it up if I didn't recognize it and perform in a way that distinctly shows your interests are First and Only.
