Sheldon arrives at Dream Town with more than 25 successful years in Chicago real estate. With a focus on luxury properties, Sheldon has sold condominiums, lofts and single family homes ranging from $1 to $5 million, many built by Chicago’s most prestigious developers and architects. He is particularly well-versed in (and fond of) the city’s Mies van der Rohe buildings, as he subscribes to the architect’s notion that it’s all in the details.
Sheldon’s expertise has earned him coverage in the Chicago Sun Times, offering advice to buyers on purchasing new construction. Sheldon has also lent his knowledge to many of the area’s popular real estate blogs and websites, while continuing to share news, tips and the “inside story” of Chicago real estate on his own blog, mrchicagoluxuryrealestate.com.
Before his real estate career, Sheldon worked as an advertising and marketing executive for Fortune 1000 companies, and that experience has served him well with creative marketing skills and client-focused attention that helps determine, meet and exceed expectations.
Julius joined Dream Town as a residential specialist, bringing a strong work ethic and commitment to his clients' success in real estate.
Julius attended the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, where he developed an analytical skill set that serves him and his clients well today. His analysis of a clients' true needs results in identifying the exact type of real estate that will fit their lifestyle--not just for the present, but for future needs as well.
A longtime owner of residential and investment properties himself, Julius knows the many rewards (and occasional challenges) involved in buying or selling a home and can put himself in a client's proverbial shoes. This is why he takes the time to know every detail of a client's situation as he would his own, and uses his expertise to consider those specifics with the big picture of the real estate market. Balancing these factors ensures it is the clients' needs that are met, not his own or the industry at large.
Discipline and focus are also key tenets of Julius' work ethic. He takes time to know and communicate the ins and outs of a particular property and will provide straightforward answers to questions and concerns. He is keenly aware of the value of a clients' time and can be counted on 24/7 to help with small and large tasks, whether it's facilitating a negotiation or scheduling an appraisal during odd hours. Clients work with Julius directly--not an assistant--and he regularly consults a team of professionals as needed to solve the individual challenges of his clients.
West Point is known for the focus, team work, analytical skills, character and work ethic among its students, and Julius is a prime example of that. His education, training and service as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army all demonstrate the breadth of skills and knowledge that Julius brings to his real estate clients.
