Santiago presents RELUX:

RELUX is the adjective describing properties which possess elements that will improve quality of life for the occupant; most commonly, natural light.  RELUX however also does encompass location relative to enhancing activities, eateries, hang outs and a living space that overall will inspire growth and the vision of possibility. 

"Real estate has, in one way or another, shaped the person who you are today. What is in store for your tomorrow could heavily weigh on your real estate decisions today. Through experience, research and technology we bring you light to guide your path."

You have always known RELUXRELUX International Real Estate is housed at RE/MAX Signature, located in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood, it is Chicago's most productive RE/MAX Office.  Established in 1973, the RE/MAX brand is the world's residential real estate leader; providing agents in 87 countries through over 7,000 offices, creating the largest global network of full service agents* working to sell your property.  The RELUX approach and the RE/MAX International brand help Elizabeth and Santiago optimize their client's timing and delivery; which like in comedy, in real estate, it can make all the difference.

*Full service agents take the full financial and creative workload and their efforts allow the various portal real estate marketing websites and discount, pay-back real estate services to co-exist; without their investment all of the current marketing and transactional services as we know them today would not exist.  It is for this added risk and investments that most often full service agents are more experienced and overall create a better system professionally that creates a better end result for their clients.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $575K in Norwood Park East, Chicago, IL.
      Santiago really goes the extra mile (or ten) for his clients. The time and attention Santiago gave us is unparalleled. Santiago is professional, organized and efficient, but he let us take all the time we needed -- without ever wasting our time. He treated us like we were his most important clients every step of the way. Additionally, Santiago is a resourceful sounding board for weighing pro's and con's. His actions were responsive and on target throughout the process and even after the sale. He handled some post-closing issues with the seller and then, a few years after our purchase, he helped us with re-fi comps. Another bonus is that Santiago knows not just Chicago, but the surrounding areas, too. Obviously, we will be calling on Santiago when we sell and buy again.  MoreLess

      Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Edgewater Beach, Chicago, IL.
      Santiago Valdez is extremely knowledgeable about the Chicago area and housing market. He listens to what the buyer wants, never pushing a property or price . He was prompt in returning calls and arranging meetings. He also has an extensive network of professional contacts to support the buying process at each stage.

      Apart from his professionalism, Santiago is extremely personable and a pleasure to do business with. I will certainly be looking to him for any further property purchases in Chicago.

      Sold a Multi Family home in 2013 in Montclare, Chicago, IL.
      Santiago was fantastic. He was always very responsive and guided us through a difficult short sale to a positive outcome. He is knowledgable and just a nice guy to work with. I would definitely call Santiago again if I needed to buy or sell property.
