“It's tangible, it's solid, it's beautiful. It's artistic, from my standpoint, and I just love real estate.”
This quote summarizes exactly how Laura Renaldo feels about Chicago, the architecture and exciting real estate market! Dividing her business equally between rentals, sales and buyers, Laura has the knowledge and experience that homebuyers absolutely need. Moving to the area now known as West Bucktown in 2000, Ms. Renaldo found the changes to her street, neighborhood and landscape a study of city sprawl. “New and exciting business’s opened, real estate developments began and CTA stations received million dollar renovations. Shortly thereafter my rent was raised. I saw how the economics had come down to me, the end user of the current rental market….it intrigued me and I wanted to learn more!” After short moves to Bucktown proper and finally settling in hip East Village Ms. Renaldo has seen the area of West Town develop and flourish both financially and socially. With a heavy focus on this hot (and most profitable) neighborhood Laura’s clients enjoy not only her experience in the market but her knowledge of the active rental market and changes to our urban economic landscape. “I focus on putting my buyers in not only a place they will love, but one that can garnish a high rent and earn them appreciation for their future” she says. For her rental experience, Ms. Renaldo works with a portfolio containing 100 plus apartments from Wrigleyville to River North and has a constant flow of studios in Lakeview. Her rental clients enjoy the “hustle” that every owner needs. Quick and efficient, Ms. Renaldo prides herself on getting units rented so owners don’t needlessly suffer through an unnecessary mortgage payment. Laura holds her qualifying tenants to high standards, and has zero evictions. For listings expect the same work ethic, with a heavy focus on making your homes curb appeal top notch for your prospective buyer.
