We represent home buyers exclusively throughout the Chicago area.
Why do we never represent home sellers? In order to provide the best form of representation to home buyers and real estate investors - called "Exclusive Buyer Agency."
We've served over 150 home buyers and real estate investors over the past 11 years - saving them millions of dollars on their home's price, home inspection credits - and helping them compare rates and fees between various lenders. See our video testimonials page to see what our clients say.
As specialists - we are expert property finders, and negotiators. We guide home buyers and investors through every aspect of purchasing real estate as their unbiased adviser and advocate.
Visit our home buyer blog - or connect to us on Facebook or Twitter or LinkedIn, or our Active Rain blog with the buttons on the right.
We help first time home buyers, investors, and luxury home buyers in the Chicagoland area find the perfect property. As negotiation experts with over 25 years of experience in high-end negotiation - we help home buyers obtain it at the best possible price. in 2013 - on average we achieved about double the percentage price off, as compared with traditional agents for a given community.
We also help home buyers save money on their loan by shopping for the best rates and fees. Note that you never want to use an agent that pads their pockets by also doubling as a loan originator. How would you really know that they are looking out for your best interests?
We also provide referrals to very experienced and detail oriented home inspectors and great real estate attorneys.
And of course, we handle the many details that are necessary to guide you - the home buyer to a successful and on-time closing.

Did you know that 99% of Real Estate buyer agents are generalists?
When the consumer hears "buyer agent" they believe that they have an agent who is fully on their side.
Unfortunately - that is not true. Agents who list property for sale (represent sellers) call themselves a buyer agent when working with a buyer. But both they and their company also represent sellers. Can you see the problem? Your "buyers agent" can get into situations where they are suddenly half on the sellers side - or they may be helping out their buddy in the same office. There are shared fax machines, file cabinets and desk spaces that have the potential to compromise your best interests.
Worse yet - each years thousands of buyers across the United States unwittingly contact the listing agent of the home they are interested in purchasing, and worse yet - purchase the home through them.
That listing agent is fully on the seller's side, and that home buyer inevitably ends up over-paying for the property and doesn't know the full extent of the negatives.
As Exclusive Buyer Agents in the Chicago Illinois area, we are specialists, and only represent home buyers - so we have no conflicts of interest.
Buying a home is certainly one of the most important things you will do in your lifetime. You should put your home buying experience in the hands of a specialist - not a part-time generalist.
We are your unbiased coach and advocate - so you are in good hands.
You want an agent that points out the negatives, and the disadvantages of a property, and shows properties in an unbiased manner.
We show a wider array of properties than a typical buyer agent - including: For-Sale-By-Owner, Foreclosure / Bank-owned / REO properties, Pre-foreclosure / Short sale, New Construction, Auctions, properties yet to hit the market, and any property listed by any company in the MLS.
Our #1 goal is to help home buyers avoid costly mistakes and protect their best interests!
Unlike other buyer agents - the commission we receive is perfectly aligned with the buyer's interests - rather than the opposite. We make LESS when the home buyer's price goes up - and more when it goes down. Our clients are never out of pocket to us. And - we rebate all advertised bonuses. And if the payout by the listing side is greater than our agreement with our client, we issue a rebate to the client.
