Roger brings the ideal combination of financial and market expertise to his real estate business. With a background in both the financial markets and as a builder/general contractor, Roger has been licensed since 2008 and specializes in residential purchases, sales and investments. A longtime resident of Chicago, he is well-versed in the distinct neighborhoods of both the city and northern suburbs, and assists buyers in finding their ideal fit while helping sellers maximize their results. Roger's clients appreciate his personable yet confident approach, and recognize that he is dedicated to helping them achieve their real estate goals.
The constant in Roger's diverse career has been his tenacity, integrity, attention to detail, and ability to problem-solve in a fast-paced environment. Prior to following his passion into real estate, Roger was an independent broker on the floor of the Mercantile Exchange and then Board of Trade. His success stemmed from his ability to identify and interpret trends, and to analyze complex economic data. His keen aptitude for generating financial solutions quickly is a tremendous advantage to his clients in the ever-changing Chicago real estate market.
From first-time condo buyers to seasoned sellers and investors, Roger feels it is a privilege to assist his clients through their various life stages, from a growing family looking to upsize to empty-nesters returning to the city. He makes it his priority to remain a trusted advisor to his clients for the long term. When Roger began developing investment properties for himself in 1999, he honed his skills in assessing the marketability of a particular design, envisioning a property's possibilities regarding remodeling, and determining appropriate market value. This experience led Roger to create strategic partnerships he formed with industry professionals in the areas of development, construction, and financing.
Moving to Chicago from his birthplace of Havana, Cuba at age 8, Roger is fluent in Spanish, an additional asset to his clients in the Chicagoland market. Roger grew up in Rogers Park and Skokie. He currently lives in Highland Park where his three children help keep him energetic and focused.
