Chicago/Elgin Real Estate Agent?

8 Replies

Hi! First time here. I was wondering if anyone had a favorite real estate agent that works in Elgin or Chicago? Trying to buy my first place & preferably a multi family home, but that's not a deal breaker. Thanks for any help!

@Brian Cyhaniuk I am from Elgin, one of the top agents in the area just opened his own brokerage in Elgin, reach out to @Chris Davis and he will help you. I've also worked with @Jennifer Kinzle who is very knowledgeable about the Elgin area as is @Joe Mueller who also has his own Brokerage, Tanis Group Realty.  All 3 are very competent and willing to help new investors.

Myself and @Jake Fugman have helped countless house hackers in Elgin, Aurora, Joliet, and Chicago. There are good agents around Chicagoland but Jake and I are both investors ourselves and I have my MBA in Finance. We can definitely help you start your investing career.

@Brian Cyhaniuk Great to hear you goal to purchase something soon but keep in mind the person you are looking for could be 2 different agents.  These are two totally different markets and many investment minded brokers are not comfortable with the other.  However there is people like @Jake Fugman and @Michael J Scanlon who can span both.  

Keep in mind Elgin does have a rental license program as does many suburbs so be sure to account for that in your proforma!
