|Violet and I
This office serves clients in real estate transactions of all types. I
also assist clients with estate planning for everyone, including the GLBT community, and represent Illinois condominium associations
as needed. I help real estate investors who are renting their properties deal with difficult renter issues, and I advocate
for renters dealing with difficult landlords.
I work with clients in Chicago and all over the Chicagoland area, including
Wilmette, Skokie, Morton Grove, Plainfield, Wheaton, Glencoe, Lake Forest, Naperville, Oak Park, Winnetka, Des Plaines, Orland
Park, Berwyn, Carol Stream, Arlington Heights, Crystal Lake, Barrington, Palatine, Park Ridge, Gurnee, South Holland, Park
Forest and more.
My goal is to give
each and every client personal, friendly and competent service at a reasonable price. I also strive to use technology in the
best way possible to keep my clients informed.
My legal background includes working for a major Chicago developer and working for a boutique
firm in their real estate division. I am also a landlord of a three flat building in Rogers Park and I am managing broker
of a small real estate brokerage.
I work with all different types of clients, including developers, first-time buyers, buyers of second
(or third!) homes, all sellers and the LGBTQ community.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Sorry I haven't posted anything in the last month or two...Between my trip to Ireland in the beginning
of November and the holidays, things have been hectic!
10:03 am cst
A new post follows regarding the new Radon Awareness Act
going into effect the first of the year.
Happy holidays and new year to all!
Illinois Radon Awareness Act - Jan 1, 2008
The Illinois Radon Awareness Act goes into effect January 1, 2008. It requires that radon hazard information
and a recommendation to test every home for radon must be provided to any potential buyer of residential real estate prior
to the acceptance of any offer.
10:00 am cst
Three forms will be involved in this transaction:
1) A disclosure acknowledging
the transfer of the required information from the Seller to the Buyer. This page also requires that any information regarding
elevated radon levels inteh home, including prior test results be provided to the buyer.
2) Illinois Emergency Management
Agency (IEMA) Form "Radon Testing Guidelines for Real Estate Transactions" describing protocols.
3) New IEMA
Form/Brochure "Disclosure of Information on Radon Hazards".
Act DOES NOT require Sellers to test their home prior to sale!
Radon is a known Class A human carcinogen
causing lung cancer. Radon kills approximately 20,000 Americans each year and 46% of Illinois homes tested have scores above
the "Action Level" of 4.0 pCi/l.
Radon enters the home from the underside of the footprint. When air
is vented from a building by a natural or powered ventilation, Radon is drawn from the surrounding soil through openings between
the house and the soil.
Radon testing should be performed by a licensed Radon Management Professional or Technician
and Radon Mitigation should be performed by a licensed Mitigation Professional or Technician.
