Four generations of my family have had the good fortune of being able to call Lake Bluff their home. As a lifelong resident I know well why so many people are attracted to our small village and the surrounding area. It has been a pleasure to be able to work for my entire professional career within Lake Forest and Lake Bluff . As a member of the community I have found time to become involved in a variety of community and service organizations and have served as a president of the Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Rotary Club, the Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Lions Club and on the board of the Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Chamber of Commerce and as a member of the Lake Bluff Plan Commission. It is a joy to operate a real estate business in such warm and welcoming communities.

Client Experiences

"Brad has helped us buy and sell two homes in the area. No one knows Lake Forest and Lake Bluff like Brad. In addition to market knowledge, he has an innate sense for the negotiation and home-buying process. His experience in building trades and supplies are also a great benefit to the buyer or remodeler. Moreover, with Brad's colleagues, you clearly get the Varsity team. Should we think of selling, we would without question call Brad again.""

"From our first visit to the house, we were impressed with Brady and then Brad’s friendly styles and professional attention to detail. It has been an ongoing pleasure to continue working with Brad as we plan the purchase of our prospective new home. We have total confidence that all will continue to go well."

"Consummate professionals with whomever I have dealt with. Have bought and sold with them in LF. They were particularly helpful with details when I was out of town. Closing was smooth as silk. "
