Licensed Real Estate Broker

About Tim

As a native Chicagoan, Tim has lived in many of the city’s beautiful and robust neighborhoods. This, coupled with his expansive knowledge of financial and economic markets and being on both the buy and sell side of a property transaction, ignited a strong passion for real estate.

After graduating from Bradley University with a degree in Finance and Economics, Tim went on to work for one of the top options market making firms in Chicago. Having spent over 10 years in the trading industry, Tim developed strong analytical skills and a great deal of knowledge about interest rates and the financial markets that he finds imperative when having in depth conversations with clients about the right time to buy, sell or rent. His expansive network, dependability and attention to detail will ensure a smooth real estate transaction process.

Tim recognizes that real estate brokers are a dime-a-dozen in Chicago; most are very complacent. He takes the extra steps to set himself apart. These efforts are highlighted in his custom marketing plans that are property-specific, from staging to drone videos, you can expect your property to be highlighted in ways that extend beyond simply posting the property to MLS.

In his spare time, Tim enjoys trying many of Chicago’s great restaurants and entertainment offerings with his family and friends. Attending sporting events, golfing and hosting barbecues are some of Tim’s top interests.


Tim is a fantastic agent. His communication is top-notch, his ability to analyze the market and read trends in specific neighborhoods is incredible. He is aggressive and makes deals happen. He can keep everything moving to make sure your deal goes smooth. From the buyer's perspective, he does a great job of keeping the sellers on their toes and knows how to get you the best deal possible. He will drop what he's doing to answer you phone calls and emails at all hours. He knew what house we wanted and knew how much we wanted to spend and he closed the deal under budget. Great agent, great experience

We soon realized that buying was a way better option than renting and were kind of intimidated by the whole process. Tim made sure to show us units in beautiful downtown Chicago that were tailored to our needs! Whenever we would go see a unit for the first time he was very thorough and made sure to point out the pros and cons of that particular unit (pointed out flaws and things that would have to be replaced, etc). We instantly felt comfortable trusting him with our potential new home! His diligence is beyond what we expected as he made himself available through phone, text, and email (literally within 5 min). It was hard for us to commute downtown to see some units and he flawlessly worked around our schedule. I cannot recommend him enough. As I unpack boxes in our new Bucktown apt, trust me you're in good hands!

Working with Tim was an absolute pleasure! He is always available to answer questions and guide you through a process that can be overwhelming and stressful. He will definitely keep your best interests at heart and work tirelessly to negotiate the best deal! I can unequivocally recommend Tim with zero reservations!
