I am a lifelong native of the north side of Chicago. I am a graduate of the University of Illinois with a major in Finance and I also earned a Master's Degree in Public Administration from Lewis University. My inherent knowledge of every neighborhood in Chicago is magnified by my experience working for 13 years as a Sergeant with the Chicago Police Department in almost every area of the city. I am an extremely giving person and have a strong desire to help others which have led me to the real estate industry. I love to learn and teach others in the process. My clients can be assured that I have the professionalism and integrity which they deserve while buying or selling real estate and can be seen through my numerous 5-star reviews.
I am most proud of my affiliation with Homes for Heroes. Through this program, I have pledged to give back 25% of my gross commission directly back to my Hero buyer or seller at closing as a way for me to thank them directly for their service to our communities. Heroes include veterans, law enforcement, firefighters, EMS, healthcare workers, and teachers.
I started my real estate career in 2008 and since then I have formed The Saladino Sells Team. I believe that the dedication, integrity, and professionalism of me and my team has helped me to the great successes that I have experienced. This is clearly evidenced by my lifetime sales volume of over $50 million. In 2017 I outperformed my colleagues by selling 56 homes equating to almost $19 million in volume. My sales also averaged 98.8% of list price vs. 96% and 24 total days on market vs. 80 for all Chicago Realtors. I have been awarded the Chicago Association of Realtors Top Producer award every year since 2015 for both volume and number of transactions and in 2017 my team was recognized as being in the Top 1% of Realtors. I am a member of the Top Agent Network, of which only the top 10% of agents in the Chicagoland Area are members. These statistics translate into more money for my clients.
