      Sold a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Lake View East, Chicago, IL.
      My short sale was as quick and painless as possible thanks to Eric Marcus. He explained the entire process to me and made it all happen. I live out of state yet had my place on the market, had an offer, negotiated with the lender, and closed in just over two months. I am grateful for his services and would recommend him and his colleagues to anybody.  MoreLess

      Eric is a fantastic agent! Organized, knowledgeable and trustworthy. I would recommend Eric to all my friends. We really enjoyed working with him. From our first conversation about selling our house to the day we closed and after, he has been nothing but the best.
