Recognized as a TOP PRODUCER by the CHICAGO ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS
In his 25 years in the business, Paul has been through three major market cycles and has helped hundreds of clients successfully navigate through the sometimes choppy waters of Chicago's real estate market and find safe harbor with their real estate transactions. His experience includes not only individual buyers and sellers, but he has also represented some of Chicago's finest developers on condo conversions and new construction projects ranging from 6 to 200 units.
His clients describe him as a masterful negotiator, responsive, persistent, positive and realistic, knowledgeable, patient, and an extraordinary listener. "I really enjoy sharing my knowledge of Chicago's neighborhoods, housing styles, market trends and financing options and helping my clients find the best strategies for selling or buying that reflect the current market conditions. I will go to extraordinary lengths to help a transaction happen, but have no problem telling a client to walk away if a deal is not going to be in their best interest. I think that is why so many clients feel comfortable referring me to a friend or family member" he says.
Originally from western Pennsylvania, Paul relocated to Chicago shortly after earning his degree in Marketing from Penn State. He enjoys life with his wife and two daughters, all three of whom have the performing bug as singers/dancers/actors. He has been a hospice volunteer and served as a community outreach coordinator for a local charity. He grew up on a lake, and his love of water and the outdoors continues with his hobby of collecting and restoring vintage boats.
Paul has all of the characteristics you would want in a real estate professional. He has a wealth of experience and has extraordinary knowledge in all areas of real estate. He is patient, friendly, prompt, hard working and an exceptional listener. While he patiently viewed several properties with us over a period of a few weeks, he keenly sensed our wants and suggested we look at a property he had recently toured. Voila! He hit the nail on the head and we found our dream home. I would highly recommend him. Robert and Vicky F.
We want to thank you for all of your hard work both in selling our townhouse and in our search for the perfect house. You made the whole process easy, and we especially appreciated your constant communication and anticipation of every detail. We will not hesitate to recommend you to friends! Jill D. and Erik C.
I can't image a better experience with an agent. My husband and I are first time buyers. Paul went beyond the basics of showing us a house. He pointed out details about each house that might impact our decision. He also shared stories from his wealth of experience that helped us when it came to deciding if the final house was right for us. He is patient, honest, and genuinely wants the best for his clients. Melody and Jim D.
You are professional, pleasant, hardworking and truthful; and thanks to your hard work, we closed on the sale of my condo last week, just a short time after listing it. The strong offer you brought me, and the professional, hassle-free manner in which you handled the many details made the process a truly pleasant one. But perhaps I should have expected such extraordinary service from you, since you showed the same qualities when you sold me my condo several years ago! Your client and fan, Ann R.
Paul was excellent and helped us win out over multiple other bidders. He made sure we were taken care of throughout the process even though he came down with pneumonia! Chet and Kelly F.
I am writing to say "thank you" for all the hard work and initiative you displayed in selling my home. My move to New Jersey was the result of a job transfer. While I had the advantage of being covered by my corporate relocation plan, there was no way I would have been able to move in the compressed time frame I did, if you hadn't been there to help out. You were sensitive to my desire to stay informed on what was happening and I know you made a superhuman effort to get all of the information to me as soon as possible. You did a great job of "running interference" on my behalf with the relocation company and followed up on all those details which made the sale of my place go all that much smoother. Thanks for taking my concerns and priorities and making them your own, and in successfully selling my home in record time , in a very tough market. Timothy H.

Paul was such a pleasure to work with! He Guided us through the whole process and always followed up! We would recommend him to everyone, and we will definitely be using him on our next home purchase! Thank you, Paul, for helping us get our dream home! Sonnie and Justin F.
Paul was a great agent; he was knowledgeable about the geographic area he covers as well as about homes in general. Paul was helpful during the home shopping/buying process. He was not afraid to let us know when a property did not seem like a good buy or if he sensed that there would be potential problems. He also offered us good perspective when our first offer did not go through - he assured us that the market would pick up, and it did. His years of experience shows, and we ultimately got the house that fit what we were looking for at a price we could afford. Ray G. and Paul K.
