But the long term trend is still down. Some interesting stats in this month's report about how long it takes banks to clear these properties.
RealtyTrac’s release of their March foreclosure market report on Thursday sneaked past me as it came out earlier than I was expecting and while I was focusing on my income taxes (what a needlessly complicated waste of time and now I have to suffer the further indignity of standing in line at the post office).... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/getting-real/2014/04/realtytrac-foreclosure-market-report-chicago-activity-rises-march-768/" class="m...

March is the third month in a row of declining home sales.
March just topped off the third month in a row of declining home sales in Chicago. Compare that to last year at this time when home sales were spiking by double digit percentage growth rates during the entire first quarter. I’m seeing a 4.4% decline in year over year sales for this March but when... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/getting-real/2014/04/chicago-real-estate-market-home-sales-drop-in-march/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

It's probably the most misunderstood real estate statistic.
The media and real estate agents throw around Chicago median home prices like everyone is supposed to know what they mean but then they show their own ignorance when they imply that these median home prices somehow tell us all what is happening to the overall level of Chicago home prices. It would be really... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/getting-real/2014/03/why-median-chicago-home-prices-tell-you-nothing-about-home-prices/" class="more-li...

Well, I hope they can at least agree on which community area you are in! That is well defined.

This is normal at this time of year.
You would think that after years of being hit with the last Tuesday of the month rush on their Web site S&P Indices would be able to get the Case Shiller home price index data posted by 8 AM as promised. However, inundated with traffic, they didn’t get all their data posted until around 9... <a href="http://www.chicagonow.com/getting-real/2014/03/case-shiller-chicago-home-prices-drifted-down-slightly-in-january/" class="more-link">Read more »</a>

Introduction

Gary brings over 20 years of experience in customer service, finance, operations, and information services, and has an obsessive passion for getting the job done quickly and correctly. His corporate experience includes many multi-million dollar contract negotiations that resulted in wins for both parties. Prior to working with a well-known traditional real estate brokerage, Gary was President of a national concierge company, where he worked with Sari. He was also one of the founders of ShopLocal, a leading provider of Web shopping services for retailers, where he served as the President and Chief Operating Officer, responsible for client services, operations, and technology. His team built the company to more than 150 employees serving most of the top retailers in the country.

Gary's experience also includes 7 years at Circuit City Stores as Director of Inventory Productivity and Extended Service Plans, where he was responsible for the company's $500 million warranty program and led Circuit City's first supply chain initiatives. In addition, he was a Corporate Business Development Manager at General Electric, where he led a one-year customer service improvement study for GE Financial Services. Early in his career he worked in the strategy practice at Booz, Allen & Hamilton, and in corporate finance at Sears, Roebuck and Co.

Gary received a B.S. degree in math and physics from Duke University and an MBA from Northwestern University's J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management, where he concentrated in finance and management policy. He has lived in the Chicago area for over 19 years, including Evanston, Lakeview, Lincoln Park, University Village, and East Village.
