Making a Positive Difference in Peoples' Lives for 35 years! Originally from the east coast, I have lived in Chicago since 1977, and now consider myself to be a native. I have raised my family here, and love the city. Chicago is a city of neighborhoods. Beyond the exciting downtown that tourists and business people love to visit, the city is an interesting mix of ethnicity and culture that offers those who live here a variety of places to call home. A Realtor who knows the neighborhoods, as well as real estate law and practice is the one who is best equipped to help clients find the perfect house or condominium in the perfect neighborhood. At ChicagoCityHomes, we translate our love and knowledge of the city and our profession into the type of customer service that earns us clients for life. We are real estate consultants, unlike most agents who are real estate salespeople. Our policy is to counsel our clients so they can attain their personal goals regardless of our personal gain. We will take them through the step-by-step process of selling their property to get them the most money possible or buying the home they want, at a price they afford. We use our extensive experience and training in finance, contracts, negotiating, and marketing to their best advantage. Our mission statement is “MAKING A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN PEOPLE’S LIVES.” We hope that every client will profit personally and financially from our representation. Our commitment to our clients is enduring. Karen entered the real estate business in 1988 when she became licensed as an Illinois Realtor. Since then she has expanded her title from agent to broker, and has received multiple designations including Certified Residential Specialist, Accredited Buyer Representative, Graduate of the Realtor Institute, Senior Real Estate Specialist, Certified Distressed Property Expert, At Home With Diversity and Certified Negotiation Expert
