Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, I'll not only work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also campaign for reduced closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll give a detailed list of the closing costs so you are aware of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: If you are buying a house in Cook County, you'll receive a "Good Faith Estimate" (GFE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application. The estimate is based on the loan officer's past experiences and is required to be within a reasonable range so you're not astonished when you reach the closing table. I'll be willing to review the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
