About Chicago Properties

With comprehensive real estate know-how and a passion for helping both longtime and first-time clients buy or sell, Chicago Properties excels as one of the leading brokerages in Chicago. Our team of six realtors is known for building strong relationships with our clients, taking them from start to finish and making the process feel easy. While we like the lakefront, we've proudly called the Ukrainian Village our home since 1999. We love the vibrancy, creativity, and history of Chicago's near West, North, and Northwest sides. It's why we specialize in neighborhoods like Ukrainian Village, West Town, Bucktown, Wicker Park, and Logan Square, along with Lincoln Park, Lakeview, River North, Roscoe Village, Lincoln Square, Gold Coast, and the surrounding suburbs.

Customer service comes first.

Trust is everything.

For two decades, we’ve worked hard to earn the respect of our real estate colleagues across Chicago. We’ve also built a tight network of experts, including staging specialists, designers, photographers, lending officers, and attorneys.

Every detail matters.

When it comes to your home, we leave no stone unturned or detail overlooked. If you’re selling, we’ll ensure your home has the best marketing and advertising. If you’re buying, we’ll put in the hard work to help you find your perfect home.

You deserve the best experience possible.

You’ve worked hard for your home. Buying or selling it should feel seamless, which is why we obsess about client service. As your partner, we will proactively communicate with you, be transparent about red flags, help you make informed decisions, and always go to bat for you.

Teamwork makes your dream work.

Our team of real estate brokers works together for you under Sam’s guidance. This is unusual for brokerages, where colleagues often compete against each other—not at Chicago Properties. By collaborating, we combine our individual strengths to give you outstanding support.
