I remember my first conversation with Dan. Almost one year ago, he called me on a humid August evening. I sat on the floor of my parents’ living room, listening to him describe his dream Lakeview condo.

Together, we hustled through a very competitive market until we found the perfect place. It was bright, open and just a few blocks from Wrigley Field. We went under contract, but then, the seller changed his mind and our deal fell apart. Dan continued to check out other places, but always, he had this particular one in mind.

Real estate has a funny way of working out the way it’s meant to work out. As it happened, the seller for that Wrigleyville condo came back to us many months later — four months, to be precise. Dan was under contract by the end of January, and he closed this past March.

The space is pretty spectacular, and I’m overjoyed that everything came together for him. To celebrate, I gave him craft beer glasses and a box of Molly’s Cupcakes — two of Dan’s favorite things.

Congratulations, Dan. You waited so long for your home, but you navigated through with unwavering kindness. Two thumbs up for this condo.
