Tony - Chicago Gay Realtor, IL

Chicago, Evanston
Contact Tony
I have been a Realtor for more than eight years. I grew up as the oldest of four children in the metro Detroit area and moved to Chicagoland in 2009 to attend Northwestern University (Go 'Cats!) where I majored in economics and competed as a part of the Mens Varsity Swimming and Diving team. While most of my classmates in my major went on to careers in finance for large firms, I always knew I wanted to follow in the footsteps of my dad and grandpa by owning my own business. My entrepreneurial spirit had already taken root way back when I started my own lawn mowing company at the age of 13.

My favorite part about real estate is empowering my clients through education. Whether its a first-time buyer who is coming in with no knowledge about the process of purchasing a home, or a seller who has been through the process many times before, my goal is always to bring as much information as possible to my clients in order to help them achieve their desired outcome. Chicago is such a dynamic city and my clients (and the homes I get to see) completely run the gamut. The fact that I get to see different types of people and properties day in and day out energizes me and gets me out of bed in the morning.

When Im not working with buyers and sellers or mentoring our growing team, Im probably working out. I may never (see: definitely wont) qualify for Olympic Trials again as I did in 2012, but Im still passionate about staying fit through CrossFit, yoga, and any other type of exercise. Do you have a workout you love?

Invite me to tag along next time! My interest in fitness has also lent itself to a passion project - the charity I created in 2018 called Men of Chicago Real Estate. This industry-wide project sells cute and kitschy swimsuit calendars to raise money for LGBTQ initiatives right here in Chicago.

I look forward to getting to know you as we work together!

First Time Buyers


We LOVED working with Tony to find our condo. It was our first home purchase and Tony took time to meet with us to walk us through the process/educate us on home buying before our search began. He listened to our needs and was never pushy; he shared listings that fit our search and even offered some suggestions slightly outside of what we were looking for but we’re things we definitely liked. We ultimately bought a place we were able to get an offer in on before it hit the market, thanks to Tony.

Tony and his team helped my family with the purchase of our first home and we couldn’t have been happier with the process. It was incredibly smooth and he helped make such a big purchase incredibly easy. He also helped us navigate the additional steps needed to use a VA home loan. Would absolutely Recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home!

Tony and his team were amazing at helping me find my very first condo in Chicago! He walked me through what to expect every step of the way.

What I say about Tony, he is THE BESTEST!!! When I decided to buy my condo in 2019, I was really scared and confused about the process, after I met Tony it was like I didn't lift a finger and I bought my first ever condo. Tony explained each and every minute detail to me several times patiently (I ask way too many questions). After our first meeting he understood exactly what I wanted and he only showed me the places which met my criteria (this saved so much of my time). He is so well connected that I was able to get the mortgage/lawyer without any hassle and before I knew I had my OWN Condo. I recommend Tony, and to Anyone and Everyone who wants to buy their dream homes minus the tensions and only focus on enjoying a newly bought home.
Tony is JUST TOO AMAZING, no is Like him or can be even close to being like him!

Using Tony and his team was such a wonderful decision; I cannot imagine home-buying with out them! It was my first time buying a home and Tony took the time to fully educate me on the ins and outs and what I could do in preparation of my search. He was not pushy at all, and instead gave me space to sort through homes and made the whole process fun! He and his team continue to provide care and resources/connections when needed for any home improvement and I can rest assured his people are top level. Would highly recommend Tonys' team and to any and all home-buyers.
