About Jay Reid

I am a life long resident of the Chicagoland area. I am married to a wonderful wife and have four amazing young adults. Each day I look forward to working and providing results to my clients. I have seen the Chicago area sprawl and go from corn fields to shopping centers with every imaginable restaurant and store. Each community has its own identity and I have sold in most towns and cities. Knowing a buyers choice or what a sellers competition is provides invaluable insight to my clients. I love what I have chosen for a profession. It can be challenging at times and rewarding. Being a licensed Illinois Realtor since 1998 with an aptitude for serving the needs of seller's and buyer's alike. Buying and selling a home is one of the largest financial transactions most people make in their life. I take that seriously and have honed my skills to make sure the level of service I provide is above par. I have strategic alliances with every third party professional you will be crossing paths with. Be assured that anyone referred is thoroughly vetted.
