How do we set ourselves apart?

Market Leading Technology to Serve our Niche: Schools and Transit.


Our niche is a combination of Public Schools that have attendance boundaries, and proximity to mass transit; and through our market leading technology, our clients enjoy unparalleled exposure to buyers who care about either Schools or Transit (or very often, both). In addition, our experience in the residential design/build industry allows our agents to easily price small modifications to both increase the value of your property and decrease the time to close a sale. We are skilled at providing design expertise to visually present your home in its best light. Our sophisticated pricing models are adapted from software we created to ensure successful real estate development projects: we know for how much real estate is likely sell. You can expect uncommon results from our carefully selected Real Estate practitioners. To learn more about our approach, please schedule a consult or read more below:

Your property will get exposure to thousands of potential buyers looking for properties in the right school boundaries and/or near public transit through our LiveByTransit.com and/or SchoolSparrow websites, on which your property will have home page presence via our featured listings feature, exclusively for SparrowRealty clients. We are Chicago's most innovative real estate brokerage, and we prove it through our search websites where buyers can 1) conduct a combined Home+School search, and 2) search for properties within their defined walking distance from a train station. SparrowRealty doesn't buy technology, we build relevant technology based on the needs of our clients.
We are experienced practictioners dedicated to delivering expert advice and guidance through the entire life cycle of real estate transactions. We help our clients transact real estate effectively, whatever the end goal whether it be to live in, fix and flip, or maintain as an investment property. We have a diverse team of individuals with a broad range of real estate experience, including buying and selling both residential and commercial buildings, fixing and flipping residential real estate, redeveloping and repurposing properties, and ground up construction. Whatever your needs, we can help; and through our technology, we will provide unparralleled service.
Our real estate development experience provide valuable insight into what will sell a home. Which rooms would benefit from staging? How should rooms be rearranged to present each room in its best light? What household items should stay or go? Could we make some minor improvements that would return a reasonable ROI and sell the property faster? How often should we host open houses? What is the best time to list property? --These are a few examples of questions our agents can answer, and our expertise in building and selling homes will be a valuable tool for our clients selling any type of home throughout Chicagoland.
Certainly you have heard the phrase "Location, Location, Location" when it comes to buying real estate; but as a home seller, the phrase should be "Pricing, Pricing, Pricing". Your home stands the best chance of selling when it is a new listing, and nailing the pricing is critical to selling your home quickly and for its full value. We don't just provide comps, we provide a full analysis of the scarcity of your property and recent buying trends for your property, in your location. Its not enough to know that your neighborhood is up, say 3% from six months ago....what is the trend for properties with the same number of bedrooms, size, vintage and year of construction as yours? We keep continuous sale data for all areas of Chicagoland, segmented by property characteristics so our agents can easily and effectively deliver a SparrowRealty price opinion.
