Berkshire Hathaway- Steven Hara

assisted living services Berkshire Hathaway- Steven Hara
I began my real estate career in 1979 selling residential single-family homes, townhomes, and condominiums in the city of Chicago and throughout the North Shore and Northwest suburbs. I lived and worked in Chicago for many years before moving to the North Shore suburbs. I gained extensive knowledge and experience of the Chicago market as well as my current years of experience in the North Shore suburbs.

No task is too big or too complicated to successfully complete your sale and/or purchase from the time I begin working with you. Some brokers only listen, my team and I hear your needs and wants.
As an experienced broker, I am your real estate expert in Northbrook, Glenview, Deerfield, Highland Park, Winnetka, Glencoe, Riverwoods, Lincolnshire, Skokie, and Chicago, Illinois. I bring a group of experienced brokers to assist me. I offer a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate in the greater Chicago area and suburbs. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information.

I work well with all ages from assisting first time buyers to those upgrading or downsizing. I also have the SRES designation as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist and have first-hand-experience working with seniors and their families when seniors move from their home.

Want to know about the schools in any community? Call me. I have the knowledge and expertise to provide our clients with details about the schools and district's academics in any community in Chicago and all Chicago suburbs.

Really Homes by Roc360

assisted living services Really Homes by Roc360

Every home requires maintenance. The more home you own, the greater the needs and expenses. Downsizing comes with the challenges of figuring out how much home you need, and where to live next.

And, in a traditional home selling process, you still have to store your things, stage and show your home and plan your move -- it’s a lot.

Really is a reputable company, owned and operated by Roc360, a leading real estate investment platform founded in 2013, having funded nearly $7 billion in residential real estate investments through private lenders and direct to borrowers. Roc360 has created several successful standalone businesses in residential real estate investment, insurance, appraisals and more. Roc360 is licensed to lend and buy real estate nationwide. If you’re interested in learning how you can benefit from partnering with Really, contact us today.

StartingPoint Realty - Ryan Gable

assisted living services StartingPoint Realty - Ryan Gable

We live, breathe, and talk about you all day long. But really, so what? Just because Apple, Inc. has a passion for making great computers and Ipods, does that mean they’re the best at it? We challenge ourselves with that question everyday. The first step begins with integrity. StartingPoint Realty has a strict ethical policy. Interestingly enough, our agent training and regular meetings rarely have to touch upon ethics and being honest. Why? Because we only select those that have those qualities inherent in their personality. We don’t select just anyone to be an agent for StartingPoint Realty. It’s just the opposite, as we average about one agent hired per 20 candidates interviewed.

The other half deals with the supply side of the market. Given that 95% of our clients buy homes under $500,000, we’re constantly in and out of homes in this price range. It’s not unusual for a client to hear us say, ‘I just showed this home to another client a month ago.’ Looking around online is great, but your agent needs to know what you want and need in a home, and that might evolve into something different, which is just as important. But your agent should be keeping an eye out at all times for you.

The Rantis Group | Keller Williams Success Realty

assisted living services The Rantis Group | Keller Williams Success Realty

Years ago, Mark Rantis experienced many challenges (like the lack of guidance and available resources) when moving his father to a senior living facility. “I saw a huge gap in the real estate world that needed a solution to help families navigate this draining process,” he says. “It has become my mission to be the ‘Easy’ button for families that have to make these moves.”

To better serve his niche market, Rantis serves on the Board of Directors and State Board for Illinois Continuity of Care, a nonprofit that serves seniors and aging populations. Awarded the 2021 Chicago Agent Magazine Who's Who, and seven-time recipient of Chicago Magazine’s Five Star Real Estate Agents Award, Rantis believes the “secret sauce” to the industry comes from truly understanding that he’s there to help others achieve their real estate goals with the help of his knowledge, expertise and systems he has in place. Rantis attributes his success to his ability to form and keep relationships, which explains why 98% of his business comes from referrals. He takes a casual, yet professional approach to real estate and says he is serious and direct when he needs to be.

A true self-critic, Rantis says he always makes sure to be growing and learning from his mistakes, which leads to a very high standard he sets for himself and how he runs his business. He also uses the lessons he learned on and off the field while playing football to guide him towards success. “This is a people business. I was always taught by my parents to be honest, and to treat others as I would like to be treated,” Rantis says. “These traits have always propelled me.”
