The best way to explain my approach to the sale of your home, or the purchase of a new home for you is for you to read first hand from my past clients what they have to say about me, the process and what I do...
"Bob sought to understand where I was in my life stage and what was motivating me to sell my previous home and to purchase a new one. Bob helped me identify the community I wanted to move to and the price range, real estate tax level, and type of new home I should be focusing on. Basically Bob was a great listener and very astute and intuitive about my real estate needs. And on the other side, he was a very good negotiator and made the deal happen. Bob was fun to work with in a number of ways and even when the circumstances shifted on both sides; it was a successful conclusion on both ends thanks to Bob and his special ability to know what everyone needs". Cindy S.
"I cannot emphasize enough the amount of time, care and effort that Bob put into helping my husband and I find our home. He was very patient, honest and really listened to our wants, needs and concerns". Jennifer W.
"Bob is the most amazing agent we have worked with. He made the entire process so much fun and knew so much about the steps we needed to take. Even when we had issues with attorneys and getting quotes. Bob was right there guiding us along. I cannot even describe what an amazing man Bob is and how much we appreciated everything he did." Katie O.
"There was plenty of communication and follow-up when requested. Very professional and always courteous even with the difficulty of the short sale process". Richard W.
"Very accessible and always made sure he thought through what could benefit or harm me. I felt like my interests were taken care of". Rita S.
Bob was extremely patient with us and educated us as first time home buyers. He pointed out many useful things that first time home buyers simply would not know. Bob answered our questions very quickly and was always available to help." Laurie M.
"Bob was ALWAYS on top of things. Very helpful and I trust him greatly. He really helped make my first time home buying process comfortable for me even when things were a little crazy." Valerie G.
"Hi Bob and thank you for the fantastic experience you made for us! We cannot wish for anything more than what you have already helped us with". Mikael H.

"The secret to a successful move lies with your Realtor."
As a wife in the corporate world, "Hi! We're moving!" were words of anxiety and misgivings. I heard those words sixteen times in twenty-five years so my moving experiences are the basis of my service to you. Some were good, some not so good but I know from first-hand experience the challenges of making a move successful especially if you are making that move with small children or teens. It is my goal to make your experience as stress free as possible by taking care of all the details, whether you are selling your home on this end or buying a home locally, so you can focus on the important things - your family.
When my interest isn't focused on my clients I enjoy learning new technology, cooking, decorating my home and college basketball.especially during March Madness.
Whether buying or selling, there are so many wonderful aspects of Lake County: charming historic downtowns like Antioch, Grayslake, Libertyville, Lake Bluff, Lake Forest, and Long Grove; award winning schools; pro-active communities; a great commuter system; and not to be forgotten - an unprecedented forest preserve system where you can bike, hike, canoe, and picnic from Chicago to Wisconsin. And then there is Chicago.the best kept secret in the Midwest. Where else can you shop 'til you drop on the Magnificent Mile, dine on many ethnic foods, support two Major League Baseball teams, professional football, basketball and hockey, museums, a great theatre district, concerts, clubs and so much more.
I can assist you in finding the right area that suits your family and give you advice on making the right choice. Ask for references from my previous buyers, several of which I have helped move into to the area, out, and back again. My sales experience of the last eighteen years speaks for itself. In this changing market, I continue to master new technology for marketing your home, focus on client relationships, negotiating skills, and listening so I can serve you BEST. I am with you from offer to closing- making sure everything goes smoothly. So when the key is in your hand or the last box has been loaded on the truck, you can move forward with your new exciting adventure.
And the key to selecting that REALTOR lies with you.
