Overview

Our Design/Build division dates back to the late 70’s when we first began doing condominium conversions.  We were responsible for the final development of Briarwood Lakes in Oak Brook and Graue Mill in Hinsdale, Illinois.  Although we have completed numerous new construction and design projects, our specialty today encompasses more rehab and redesign of existing structures.

Offering these services to potential buyers and sellers has given our Sales & Brokerage division an exclusive edge over the competition. For example, when we are working as a buyer’s agent attempting to find them the right residence, the home does not always meet their criteria 100%.  We find the location and layout that they would like, but it may need a new kitchen, new bathrooms, new roof, and a few walls removed to make the home exactly what they want.  Within days, we can provide a detailed proposal with specifications, materials, and competitive pricing to help aid in the process of purchasing and negotiation.  By offering this service to our clients, we really can find them their "dream home" and give them accurate and precise costs along the way.

Our Design/Build services have also helped numerous sellers to get their homes in showing condition before placing their properties for sale.  As you will see in the seller tips section of our website, getting your home in showing condition greatly increases the chance of selling it in a more timely manner and at a higher price.  Below are some of the services we offer:
