UNDER CONTRACT 6625 N. Ashland Ave.

I recently sold this building to a buyer in my neighborhood. For many years I have preached that buying a 2-4 unit building is a very smart purchase for a first time buyer. The additional rent can help you pay off the building faster, reduce your mortgage, pay for maintenance and eventually make your cost of living zero as rents rise over time. Never has there been a greater opportunity to purchase at a low interest rate, low down payment and high rents as exist right now. Prices are creeping up slowly, so as the saying goes "time is money". If you are considering buying a condo, this purchase should be at least part of the discussion going forward. Let's sit down and talk about creating a living situation that you can't afford to ignore.

Just received notice from Trulia this AM that I am in the top 1% of agents on Trulia for 2014. Just to be clear, this is not to say that I sell more than 99% of the agents (that has never been my goal). They are recognizing me for my client reviews and client experience. Wow!

There is a difference between the corporate brokers (At Properties, Baird and Warner, BH, RE/MAX, etc) and what we do here on the far north side of the city. We enjoy living and working here, THEY consider it a chore to make the drive "all the way up north"!  Find out for yourself WHY our clients have made us part of their lives and chosen a different way of doing things.  Looking forward to an amazing 2015!
