Michael came to one of my seminars at the end of 2016. He stuck around for a while afterwards, asking me about the market and sharing a bit about his life. Michael works as a patent attorney — I know plenty of real estate attorneys, but no patent attorneys. I found his field to be exceptionally interesting, and I had lots of questions.

Shortly after the new year, Michael was ready to find his perfect place — a two-bedroom condo in Wicker Park or Bucktown with a wall big enough for a projector screen (very important). We spent a few weeks on the hunt, driving around in the gloomy January weather and listening to classical music on the radio. When we walked into this Bucktown place, Michael knew he had to have it.

He closed on it in March, just in time for a little bit of spring weather in Chicago. His home is one to remember — two bedrooms downstairs, an upstairs den with an adjacent rooftop deck, soaring ceilings and a prime location in one of the city’s top-selling neighborhoods. Michael was decisive and organized — it was truly a pleasure to work with him on his purchase.

Congratulations, Michael. I am proud of you.
