I'm planning another fun way to thank my past and present clients for their business. It is also a night where those thinking about buying or selling a home may come and enjoy conversation with those who have been through the process.

The last meet and greet I threw was a hit. Imagine a warm September night, gorgeous patio setting, a personal wine sommelier, great Mexican food and interesting conversation. Sounds like a nice vacation for some. Actually, it was the scene of my last wine tasting to thank clients and meet new prospective home buyers and sellers. A good friend of mine donated his entire outdoor patio of the Mayan Palace Restaurant in Lincoln Park. The evening was an excellent chance for people to ask me questions, discuss the buying process with a real estate attorney and mortgage broker, and to just have a fun night out.

I hate to do mailings or use gimmicks to stay in touch with clients or meet new people. I already have a good relationship with my clients and we enjoy the chance to catch up once in a while. This is also the best way I can think of to have people, that are curious about owning, come and ask questions. Most of the fear of working with real estate professionals comes from misundersatnding the services provided and roles everyone plays.

The next event will be held at a close friend's beautiful 4 bedroom duplex condo situated along the Southport corridor. It's a terrific home to entertain deserving guests. An intimate evening of wine, appetizers, and easy going discussion about buying and selling a home in Chicago. Keep an eye out for invites or just give me an email or call if you would like to attend. Space is limited!

Wine Tasting to be held March 22nd, 7PM to 10PM. Call or email for details:
