Chuck has lived in Chicago for over 30 years, and has helped hundreds of buyers, sellers and investors in Chicago's lakefront neighborhoods successfully meet their goals. After growing up in Lincolnwood, IL and graduating from the University of Illinois in Champaign, Chuck decided to get his real estate license in 1995 after finding a passion in the business through purchasing several rental properties.
Chuck uses his experience from his time as a successful bonds trader where he learned how to analyze the market and use it to achieve his goals. In real estate he applies those same principles to help clients make the right investments whether they're looking for a place to plant roots in, or looking to turn a profit. And above all else, he's committed to putting the client first, because his philosophy is that true success is measured by his clients reaching their goals.
With considerable experience in many areas of the real estate industry, Chuck has personally undertaken new construction of million dollar homes and has conducted large rehab projects. He has extensive experience with short sales and foreclosures, and this experience has helped buyers and sellers save anywhere from tens of thousands of dollars to over a million on projects of all types. Additionally, he owns a sizable portfolio of rental properties and he thoroughly understands the ins and outs of being a landlord.
When not implementing his tried and true strategic, caring, and hard-working approach to help his clients meet their goals, Chuck is spending time exploring the outdoors, and making his solar powered home in the Graceland West neighborhood environmentally friendly for his wife Hazel, and daughter Ultra-Violet.
