A lifelong resident of Chicago, I currently reside in the Edison Park neighborhood, where I served 10 years on the Board of Directors for the Edison Park Chamber of Commerce.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Not all buyers visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience, which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold quickly.

""Mary Beth Balcarcel has my highest recommendation to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Chicagoland area. She put up with my multiple month long search for a condo in 2014; I ultimately got cold feet and didn't buy anything. In the years since, any time I wanted to see a potential home, Mary Beth would always take the time to show it, even if she knew my fiancee and I weren't quite ready to buy. Throughout the process, she was honest with us regarding her thoughts on homes we saw. We valued her input. With her help we knew we would find the perfect first home for us. She was always accessible via texts, calls, and emails. Buying a home for the first time involves many uncertainties. We were fortunate enough to have a good team in place to help guide us through the process. That team would not have been as good as it was without Mary Beth. I recommend enlisting the help of Mary Beth if you are looking to buy a new home in the Chicagoland area." Reposted from Seller Survey"
