I did not want to move to the Oak Park and River Forest area. My own reluctance to plant roots here has helped me to connect with the unique needs of "the urban buyer"...
I recognize that selling homes here isn’t merely finding the right number of beds, baths, location and style. Moving to Oak Park and River Forest involves a paradigm change for many buyers. I am constantly listening to the reservations and hesitations that accompany this sort of decision. I tailor my marketing to address the unique concerns of an urban buyer.
The exacting standard of client services provided here at Gagliardo Realty is my greatest resource. While so many agents, buyers and sellers are looking to connect with the larger Chicagoland area using brokerages that blanket Cook, DuPage and Lake Counties, we proudly maintain a hyper-local identity. This is our key asset, because what out-of-area realtors cannot duplicate is our deep knowledge of our own market. I am the realtor who knows the history and unrealized potential in properties. I help my clients to sift through the statistics and data to locate the right information at the core of a home’s true value. I create a detailed financial picture of our local market to assist clients with pricing strategies.
Most importantly, I listen. My clients know I hear their needs and act as an advocate in the exciting, complex, and sometimes stressful world of real estate.
If you are a seller looking for creative ways to reach an urban buyer for your home, a buyer searching for the best value in a confusing market, are seeking to expand into a larger space or hoping to downsize into a more manageable property, I want to be the agent who provides the expertise and support to match you with the perfect home.
