Welcome to – A forum to discuss relocation issues involving the windy city.

In addition to other responsibilities at Rubloff Residential Properties in Chicago, I oversee the relocation team. We’ve seen thousands of transferees come through our doors and find a home throughout the years. Many of them were sponsored and guided directly by their companies (or their third party relocation company vendor); many were referred by other brokers in The Leading Real Estate Companies of the World ™ network, formerly knows as RELO. I currently serve as chair of Leading RE’s Advisory Council. Regardless, they all had similar needs:

  • <!–[if !supportLists]–>Receive an education on Chicago Real Estate
  • <!–[if !supportLists]–><!–[endif]–>Be introduced to an agent who will be a resource and advocate
  • <!–[if !supportLists]–><!–[endif]–>Find the right home to fit their needs!

In a former life I owned a relocation destination services company which consulted directly with corporate transferee’s, so I’ve “seen it all” regarding transferee needs. From location, price and size to “quality of life” issues like schools, transportation, etc. We’ve worked with international transferee’s struggling with issues revolving around social security numbers, visas, accompanying partner work issues, etc.

Going deeper into my past I was president of the East Lakeview Chamber of Commerce on Chicago’s north side and later served as a city commissioner for the district, appointed by Mayor Richard Daley. That experience helped shape an interest in community rejuvenation as I spearheaded the neighborhood redevelopment program there in the 90s, which I would like to feel helped make that neighborhood a more attractive option for both transferee’s and local merchants.
