D.M Home Buyer:
Shaun is an excellent realtor! He's an easy going, honest, no frills guy
whose knowledge of real estate goes far far beyond buying and selling
homes. Shaun found us the perfect home for our family and we're forever
grateful for the time and care he put forth to make the entire process
smooth. Shaun's attention to detail is amazing. The service he provides
is well beyond his duty. By the time we finalized everything with Shaun
we considered him a friend.
Yes, you can find hard workers out there, but you don't always find a
person with such special interpersonal skills. Shaun has that perfect
combination of "he loves what he does for a living" and has very real
and accurate intuitions that aid him in all aspects.
We will never use another realtor again. He's stuck with us!
J.B Home Buyer and Seller
"It's been my experience that most Real Estate Brokers are only
concerned with buying and selling a home for their commission. Shaun
absolutely changed my view in that regard. Finding a new home with Shaun
was probably the most painless experience I have had in the real estate
industry. Not only was he able to deal with my ever changing wants and
needs. He used his impressive knowledge of the real estate industry and
market trends to help me truly find what I was looking for. If you are
looking for a Real Estate Broker who genuinely is interested in finding
the home of your dreams without mortgaging your future. Than I could not
possibly recommend a better person."

C.M Home Buyer
Shaun was outstanding! He immediately responded to my calls/texts, knew
the area very well, and helped me get a great price. That's what I
expect from a true professional. What I did not expect was: tremendous
knowledge & experience in rehabbing as well as a willingness to do a
"supplemental" home inspection with the hired inspector. Shaun even
offered the names of contractors and handymen--after I asked. Never
pushy and always honest, I wholeheartedly recommend Shaun.
H.M Home Buyer
"We worked with Shaun as first time home buyers. We couldn't have made a
better choice. He was knowledgeable about the industry and about home
construction. He was always ready to show us homes at times convenient
to us. He prepared us for the bidding and purchase process as we needed
extra guidance as it was our first home purchase. He knew a lot about
the area and made suggestions, but was never pushy in the suggestions.
We ended up in a great home in the location we really wanted at a great
deal! We'll be seeking out Shaun when/if we purchase another home."
Representing All Price Points
While Shaun intimately understands the needs of Luxury sellers and has vast experience in upper bracket homes, he brings his extreme level of service to all clients at all price points. His marketing reach extends far beyond just print or word of mouth, to cover the broad scope of the internet and he assures his sellers that your listing will be advertised to the world. Every potential buyer looking in your area and price point will see your home. Your home will be featured on all of the major home search sites, including Zillow, Trulia, Yahoo, Realtor.com, Redfin, and over 60 more. Your home will be “googleable” and even given its own YouTube link, so that today’s buyer online can feel as though they got the true experience of viewing your unique home. Shaun’s main value proposition to his clients is his responsiveness. He is never M.I.A. He is email savvy and practically has his blackberry surgically attached. He never misses a request to see your home and will drop what he is doing if needed, to show your home to that potential buyer, never missing an opportunity to sell your home. He has a wonderful trades list, should you need help preparing your home to sell, and he will work in conjunction with you to highlight your home in the best light and have buyers flocking. You want to have the market chasing you, and not be chasing the market. Price, marketing, and attractiveness are key to ensuring this goal is accomplished. Shaun will help advise you on all front and continue to keep you always up to date on what he is doing to get your home sold.
Buying and Investment
All buying is investing. But whether you are looking to invest in your primary residence, second home, or multi-unit Shaun can help to advise you on risk management, neighborhood statistics, potential take home and growth, and all of the factors you need to consider when making this important decision. Shaun is the antithesis of a pushy Realtor. Pressuring is not his style. He likes his clients to feel relaxed, at ease, and like they are in charge of their search. He takes a highly personalized approach, working with you in the way you most prefer and therefore works with no two clients the same. For first-time buyers, he doesn’t overwhelm you with information he just guides you through the process, answering your questions along the way. He stays up to date on luxury buying trends and knows the necessary accouterments for today's listings, securing you the best value in today’s market. He looks forward to working with you in whatever way you work best and will be one hundred percent committed to your goals in whatever type of property you seek. In addition, Shaun grew up here on the North Shore and is adept at helping any relocation buyer find the ideal property in the ideal community.
After growing up in the North Shore and attending Deerfield schools Shaun graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education, from Northern Illinois University. Shaun enjoys playing Golf, Softball, and watching his fav Chicago teams, Go Bears!
