I'm a Chicago native, Cubs fan, and a full time licensed residential real estate agent with Rubloff Residential Properties. My wife Jillian and I (and Mini-Me soon to come) are home owners in the city. The only thing I love more than Chicago real estate is Jillian... and sometimes I have to think about it. But seriously folks! Please feel free to comment or contact me with questions concerning buying and selling real estate in Chicago. I meet many of my clients here! Visit my blog at The Chicago Real Estate Local for real estate talk from the frontlines of Chicago's neighborhoods.
As a native of the city, I've witnessed the transformation and development of Chicago over the last 25 years. Jillian and I live on the northwest side and we can't imagine being anywhere else (we travel, however, as much as possible!). We are truly connected to the city through our careers, professional affiliations and social activity.
