Real Estate Broker
As an agent who's an expert in Chicago and all Chicagoland surrounding suburbs, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't 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 even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

“Real estate is a marriage for a short while and a friendship for a long while. Experience is the Difference.”
Sheila Kula was the broker for the sale of my mother’s condominium which closed in January 2021. Sheila managed the entire process very smoothly. From our first discussion, she listened carefully to my needs and concerns and went to work right away marketing the listing and showing the apartment. Sheila offers personaiized service, attending every showing, and spending as much time as needed with each prospective buyer. One thing that I have really appreciated is that she referred me to resources which helped in giving away or selling some of the items I needed to remove from the apartment.
As we approached the closing, Sheila made sure everything was in place. She did not hesitate to reach out in whatever way was needed to make sure all moved along as it should. She communicated with all parties as needed.
I really appreciate Sheila’s personalized service as well as her knowledge, experience and skill, and recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell their property.

Hi Sheila - I want to thank you for your skillful and persistent negotiations that brought us to very successful closings for the Harvard and Gross Point properties. The purchasers, sellers, and attorneys could not have gotten to the closing table without you.
Each transaction required your daily contact with all parties from the contracts to the closings.
And you worked patiently and personally with everyone.
