James Salazar Real Estate Team

My Motto


"Building Long-Term Business Relationships Through Hard Work, Honesty & Integrity"

I was born in Chicago, raised in the neighborhoods of Uptown, Irving Park and Belmont Cragin.  Have lived, worked and developed a vast knowledge of the Near Western Suburbs of Chicago, such as Riverside, Oak Park, Forest Park, River Forest, Berwyn, Cicero, Lyons, Stickney, Brookfield, La Grange, La Grange Park - just to name a few.

My objective and what I strive for, is to always provide the best service to my clients.  I've been extremely fortunate to have been exposed and well educated in many different sectors of this wonderful industry, enabling me to pass this knowledge on to my clients and making them the most informed consumers out in the market. 

You will get a no nonsense approach from me, receiving nothing but the truth and facts, allowing you to always make confident and well informed business decisions about your Real Estate needs.

I’m often asked “What do you specialize in and what areas”? 

  • Superior Service - Listening to your needs to ensure the best outcome for you and your family. Taking the approach with that of a Hear of a Teacher and not placing my sales successes above that.
  • Know How - Having a pulse on the market and the ability to explain how that can impact the purchase or sale of your property.

Two extremely important attributes that have provided successful outcomes for my clients throughout the years.

If you or someone you know is looking to buy or sell Real Estate, please feel free to get in touch.  I would be honored to have the opportunity to earn your trusted business.

Homebuyers (First Time, Move-up, Secondary/Vacation, Relocation, Investors)
Home/Property Sellers (Single Family, Condos/Townhouses, Multi-Unit Properties, Luxury Homes, Investment Properties, Bank Owned Foreclosures, Short Sales)

"James was consistently patient, kind, understanding, and helpful. He was a pleasure to work with and we'd work with him again in the future.

Additionally, he recommended us a home inspector, lawyer, and mortgage broker and we were extremely happy with all of his recommendations."

"James was very helpful with the overall process of buying my home. He was able to answer all my questions no matter what time or day. I will recommend him to any I know who is buying a home."

"James was great to work with! Always available and willing to help. We needed to sell our home relatively quickly and he did everything possible to make that happen. He always had a good perspective on questions we had and was willing to consider many different avenues when considering what we should do."

"James made the buying experience so enjoyable and he was extremely patient throughout the entire process. He did not try to rush us into making a decision, and was very knowledgeable about the Oak Park housing market. We made an excellent selection that had several hiccups along the way (these were all due to sellers not completing their due diligence on time), but James guided us through the process unscathed. I would highly recommend James for anyone that is currently or is considering entering the housing market."
