Representing investors, sellers, buyers and renters, Tom specializes in luxury residential, as well as new development sales and leases in Greater Chicagoland with a primary focus on River North, River West, South Loop, West Loop and the Gold Coast.
Tom was born in Chicago raised on the North Side where he developed a unique appreciation for the city's architecture, historic landmarks and incredible skyline. As a young teenager, Tom immediately recognized the benefit of owning real estate after witnessing his parents go through the process of buying their first home. After a highly successful 17-year career in broadcasting—including being on the air at WTMX—Tom decided it was time to make a change. He looked at many different options, and it became evident that real estate was the next step.
His experience in broadcasting, coupled with his outgoing and gregarious personality, Tom will make any deal or transaction as smooth and easy as possible. He fully understands the nature of effective marketing and innately possesses an uncanny ability to negotiate while always staying truly dedicated to accommodating his client’s needs. In addition to being a licensed broker in Illinois, Tom is also a licensed real estate agent in California.
Whether you are looking to buy or sell, Tom can work with you to meet or all of your needs. Whether you're a first-time or repeat buyer, a renter or an investor, Tom will guide you through the process of buying or selling real estate.
My husband and I recently became very interested in the beautiful city of Chicago. Neither of us were familiar with the city, we just knew we loved it. We were introduced to Tom Lazar who thoughtfully requested all our wants and needs. In a very short time he found several homes that matched our requests. Home-based in California and making a large purchase 2K miles away; with Tom representing us this was a stress free, seamless, FUN process. Make no mistake, this is due only to Tomâ??s professional attention and work ethic. Tom is above and beyond anything you could ask or that you will find in a real estate agent. His communication skills, knowledge of his product, professionalism and friendly disposition are just a few of his exquisite assets. Tom managed all phases of what is now, our Chicago Happy Home. He went above and beyond the normal phases of scouting, showing, managing offers, inspections and closing. Tom was always available with any requests we had, even after the purchase! He selflessly met with all types of providers at our home when we couldn't. You just cannot find a more pleasant professional to work with. Extreme emphasis on both words PLEASANT & PROFESSIONAL! We cannot say enough about our most recent purchase experience with Tom Lazar, our realtor who is now Tom, our friend. We give Tom our highest recommendation and given the opportunity you will too! Sincerely, Julie & Jeff Prince
