I was born in South Bend, Indiana where my family owned and operated a small business for over 50 years. Every member of my family has been licensed to practice real estate, and my dad owns a real estate company in Indiana.

After graduating with honors from Indiana University in 1991, I earned my CPA and worked for a big six accounting firm in Chicago. Combining my experience and entrepreneurial spirit, I started my own successful accounting business that I ran for 3 years. Next, I embarked on a career as a soybean trader at the Chicago Board of Trade, followed by a successful run as a stock options market maker at the Chicago Board of Options Exchange.

I began my real estate career in 2003 as broker/owner of ESM Realty. Since then I have closed on more than 300 transactions on condominiums, townhouses, single family homes, multi-unit residential, and commercial properties. In each year 2005-2008 I sold over $10 million in real estate, and in 2013-2014 I sold more than $14 million, making me among the top producing Realtors in all of Chicago.  Our extensive marketing program includes premium placement on Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com.

Our team works tirelessly to make each client feel like they are our only client!  We strive for the highest level of performance on each transaction so we perform beyond your expectations.   Our business is 75% referral and we want you to not only be our client but our biggest raving fan.

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.  More Less
