We are Stephanie Hofman and Erin Rutman, full-service Realtors working in Highland Park, Glencoe, Deerfield, Riverwoods, Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, Wilmette, Winnetka, Northbrook, and Glenview, Illinois.
Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest transactions you might make in your life, and it is our goal to make sure that you have the best experience possible! We love helping all home buyers and sellers with their real estate transactions. We specialize in helping first-time home buyers, seniors and divorcing couples.
We bring over 15 years experience in the fields of marketing, sales and client service, plus a passion for residential real estate and a client-centric approach to my business. From our initial conversation through closing and beyond, we will provide an unmatched level of personal attention, energy and dedication to the job to ensure that your real estate goals are achieved.
We will be your guides, your advocates and your resource throughout the entire process. Navigating through today's challenging real estate market takes a skilled, experienced professional. We will be on your side, managing communications between all the parties involved, making sure that you know exactly what steps to take. There are a lot of parties involved in just one real estate transaction, and we will be your liason between all of them, managing the process to make it as easy as possible.
How do Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security affect real estate decisions for senior citizens? What about the uses of pensions, 401K accounts, and IRAs in real estate transactions? If you need assistance with sorting out the complex decisions and figuring out what role your real estate investment plays in your overall financial picture, we can help.
