As a real estate broker in The Glen in Glenview I work with many wonderful people.  After you watch the video above you will know my story on how I was able to meet Josip and his daughter Lucy.

When I meet a new client who would like me to list their home, I always bring in a stager and a contractor.  Both add great value to my clients and their home.  My stager prepares their home so it looks fabulous to the  buyers.  My contractor takes care of any issues my seller might have when it comes to interior or exterior repairs.

When the seller of 1535 Patriot Boulevard hired me to list their home we had to clear the clutter do a few minor repairs in order to put it on the market.  My contractor, Josip has helped me on many properties. Whether it’s working with a buyer after they purchase a property or a seller needing a fresh coat of paint, I know I have the guy and his team to make all very happy.

One day Josip came to me and told me that his daughter, Lucy had been working with an agent for a long time and either the agent wasn’t able to find the right property or was unable to negotiate the right deal.  Josip asked me if I would give lucy a call and see if I could help her find the right property.

I called Lucy right after speaking with her father and we discussed what type of property and what was her price range.  I knew of a great property in The Glen in Glenview that wasn’t on the market and the owners were relocating to Alabama for work.  I called them and they were excited to show their property to Lucy.  The next day Lucy and her family met me at the property. Lucy loved the property and as we walked around the home we decided to make an offer that the seller could not refuse.

Lucy is a proud owner of a great townhome in The Glen in Glenview.  Her father helped her out by doing a little bit of touch ups and today Lucy is extremely happy with her purchase.  

I am a very lucky guy to have a great client and hopefully anyone who watches this video will contact me about buying or selling in The Glen or anywhere in the Chicago area.
