The decision to purchase a property in the Elmhurst area is just the first step.  From the initial viewing of the property, to the closing, to the preparation and the final move, your decisions will have an effect on your level of satisfaction (or dissatisfaction) with the results.  It can all be a bit overwhelming.

Your real estate agent (Ahem!  That’s me!) is in a position to know where to go for the answers to all your needs.  It is in the best interest of your real estate agent to refer you to the people and companies that will make your transition as smooth as possible.  After all, if you are happy with your property, and the way the preparations to take possession went, you are a walking testimonial to the reliability of your agent.

Does your new property require updating or renovation?  We know the best (and worst!) contractors in the business.  Whether the job is waterproofing, or moving a wall, or just a cosmetic spruce-up, tell us what you need and we will put you in contact with the people who can do it beautifully, and for a reasonable price.  Perhaps the property needs landscaping, or even just a good cleaning on the inside.  Please, just ask us, and we’ll give you our best contacts.

By the same token, if you have a property to sell, and it needs preparation, we can help you find the right people for the right job.  We want your property to sell, and we want you to be happy with our handling of that property, so, again, we will send you to the best companies for your needs.  It’s a mutually beneficial service.

If you want service that goes beyond finding or selling your property, and you’re looking for property in the Elmhurst and DuPage County area, call me, Tom Makinney, at our home office, (630) 567-5902, or check out my website
