Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

 I started my real estate career as a front-end investor in condo conversions. This led to rehabbing and residential rental property acquisitions. I have held positions in real estate from the role of agent all the way up to sales director for a condo real estate brokerage. I have built homes, rehabbed and flipped and done condo conversions. I also have graduated from home inspector school. I know about construction and every facet of this business.

One of the most rewarding parts of my profession is helping many clients start building wealth investing through real estate purchases or sales. But what I enjoy the most is working with first-time homebuyers. I get a true sense of satisfaction helping someone find his or her perfect first home. I have helped many renters become homeowners. 

While Attending the Illinois Institute of Technology for engineering, I decided to get a part time job on the Commodity Exchange trading floor. That led to a 15 year career in the trading pits of the Mercantile Exchange. I am addicted to action and used to getting immediate results. I take this philosophy into working with my clients. Whether I am working with buyers, sellers or investors. Its all about customer service and satisfaction. 

I feel that the real estate market is always good; it is just a matter of being in the right sector. Whether you are buying, selling or looking for a solid real estate investment, I can assist you. Many of my previous clients have become lifelong friends; that is why I enjoy this business so much!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $175K in Palos Heights, IL.
    I worked with Frank two years ago when I was looking for my first home and after looking at over 50 houses, I was ready to give up. Frank found a few more houses for me to look at and the house he recommended for me, ended up being THE HOUSE!

    I highly recommend anyone to work with Frank Lardino. He is insightful, listens to your needs and if you are a new homeowner, he is very helpful guiding you through the process.  MoreLess

    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $625K in Glen Ellyn, IL.
    We were very impressed with the work Frank did for us on the buy side. We were moving from the city, and the agent-team that handled our sale recommended Frank as an expert in the area we were targeting. We were not sure if we wanted to go the new construction route or the existing home route, and we found that Frank has an extensive knowledge of both options.

    After we found the house we wanted, the negotiation over price was a breeze. We were on the same page with him about what the house was worth, and it took something like a day or less to get the sellers to agree. As is usual, there were a few things from the inspection report that concerned us (and led us to seek certain closing credits from the seller), and Frank was effective in advocating for us, as well as with counseling us on what was feasible in light of all circumstances. In the end, we think all sides got a very fair deal, and we were delighted with how everything turned out.

    All in all, Frank is a consummate professional. Knowledgeable, responsive, honest, assertive on your behalf - the whole package. If you're looking for a realtor in DuPage (and I'm sure elsewhere in the region), shoot Frank an email.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Lockport, IL.
    Frank listed my house and my Mother's house at the same time. We both found Frank to be very professional, honest and easy to work with. His response time to all of our calls was very immediate. He has excellent negotiating skills and gives good advice. One thing that Frank really impressed me with was his ability to work with and respect my elderly Mother. I would highly recommend Frank Lardino for any of your real estate needs.  MoreLess
