Having always been interested in historic homes—both from an architectural and sociological perspective—I decided to include historic homes as an integral part of my business. My specialized approach to marketing a historic home includes focusing on the personal history and architecture of the home resulting in an individualized marketing message that reflects the uniqueness that is found a historic home. It is this uniqueness that attracts people to the home. Attraction is the key to selling a home.
I am currently working towards my Historic Preservation Certification at Northwestern University. Understanding preservation is an integral part of appreciating the c 1830 to c 1940 historic homes that are found throughout the Fox River Valley. I also publish the Historic Homes Journal several times a year which features one of my listings and presents market statistics relative to both the general and historic homes markets as well as a compilation of current sold historic homes in a specific market. The specific markets currently included in the Historic Homes Journal are St. Charles, Geneva, and Batavia with a mailing list of nearly 1000 homes. Other areas that include historic homes are Elgin, Aurora, West Dundee, DeKalb, and Sycamore.
Call me if you have any questions about or would like to sell or buy a historic home.
