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.

Service Areas:
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)
REO Agent for Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and other financial institutions

"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."



"James is by far the best real estate agent. He goes above and beyond what's expected. He is very professional, cordial, & knowledgeable of the area he is dealing with. He answered all questions thoroughly and was punctual at all appointments. James' professionalism is demonstrated in his attire as well. He is always dressed to kill. dapper & dashing. I will definitely do business with him again."

"James is simply the best. He was everything we needed him to be and more. James always went above and beyond without hesitation. Our recent purchase wouldn't have been possible without him. We used James before and will always come back to him as long as he's in the business."

"James is very nice and professional. He has helped us to buy several houses. He is always on time. He is patient and never pushes us to buy. When he showed us the house, he always gave us his professional opinions regarding repair, offer and negotiation.

We like him a lot. We have recommended him to several friends.
