Exceptional Client Experiences best define my business.  My clients deserve the highest levels of service and I am honored to have received 100% client satisfaction ratings.  I am ranked among the top in what matters most to my clients - simply, providing the best purchase terms.  I am also proud to have won a 2016 Agent Choice Award from Chicago Magazine.


As an area native, I offer an in-depth market knowledge and insider’s perspective on the nuances of successfully buying and selling homes within each community.  

• As a former advertising executive and business management consultant, I provide proven marketing and strategic expertise for my Sellers.

• With over 30 years of succesful negotiation experience, I deliver more value to my clients, surpassing the industry standards with higher returns on my clients' investments.


Personally, I can often be found in one of Chicagoland's many great restaurants.  I have a passion for travel and am grateful to have visited many locations throughout the U.S. and internationally.  Due to all the eating and travel, I am also dedicated to fitness, having completed my first Ironman Triathlon.

Tom was great to work with through every step of the buying and selling processes. He helped us find a place that was perfect for us in a great location, and he clearly knows the real estate business very well. A great bonus was that he is also very knowledgeable about things to look for that show quality of construction or maintenance of a property. Even better, he was able to recommend an excellent attorney and loan officer, so we had a team that was able to put everything together easily and efficiently. For the sale side, he and his team were always available and worked hard with showings and open houses in what turned out to be a very competitive local condo market. In the end, everything worked out perfectly and we couldn’t be happier – definitely recommended.
