Alberts + Maletsky joined forces in 2015 to offer our clients an enhanced experience. We didn’t create a team to work less, we created a team to work smarter and provide better service to our clients. Specializing in the North Shore communities, our local knowledge and understanding of our clients’ needs have catapulted our team to rank consistently amongst the top producing agents in our hometown, Highland Park with more than $100 Million in sales.
We are dedicated to establishing and keeping your trust using the latest technology to provide reliable, responsive communication at all times. Our mission is to make buying and selling homes seamless and stress-free by offering skilled market analysis, expert real estate advice, and extraordinary customer service. We work hard to make real estate easier.
Our team is growing because our business demands it! In order to maintain our high standard of service, we have added a licensed buyer’s agent/listing assistant, transaction coordinator and marketing assistant. Under our mentorship, and trained in our systems, our team is poised for success and continued growth for many years to come.
We’ve got you covered!
1. 100% Five-star reviews. Check them out on Yelp, Google & Zillow.
2. We are a team of full-time, full-service, top producing agents. Active agents receive more calls, giving us more and better opportunities to spread the word about your home, or help you discover a home that hasn’t hit the market yet.
3. Most of our business comes from past clients and referrals. People who know us, trust us.
4. We tour every week, so we know the inventory. We also know things that only locals will know. Compass has offices throughout Chicagoland with experts in every market. We frequently network with top producing agents across our company and know who to call to get the inside scoop.
5. We are a small business. We invest in our business with professional coaching and by building our brand. This is not a hobby.
6. We have a plan. We have both a pre-listing campaign designed to get your home sold before it even hits the market, as well as an active listing strategy that utilizes multiple marketing and advertising platforms. We create checklists for everything, so nothing falls through the cracks.
7. We communicate effectively and consistently. Our response time is impressive and we believe in over- communicating rather than making assumptions. We deliver on promises.
8. We do our research. We know how to find and analyze numbers in the MLS to better understand what’s happening in the market.
9. We have excellent relationships with local brokers. Agents let us know about their upcoming business and like doing deals with us because we make it easier for them.
10. We know the process inside and out. There are still things to be learned with every transaction, but we have a ton of experience from which to draw. We are not too proud to seek advice from others who know more.
11. We are organized, thorough and pay attention to details. We strive to be free of mistakes in our MLS listings and have accurate knowledge about the properties we represent. We look for potential issues early on to eliminate surprises and plan ahead.
12. We are present. We show up. We don’t leave you or your house alone. We make sure that a team member is present for inspections and appraisals.
13. We care about people. We care about how you’re feeling as we go through the process and strive to be good listeners. We are patient and kind, but also honest. We put our clients’ needs above our own.
14. We surround ourselves with great people. Our Resource Guide is a unique tool that our team provides and we update it frequently.
15. We have lots of business, but we are never too busy. Our business is growing and we have organizational systems in place to seamlessly and successfully manage new business. Many agents don’t and find themselves frenzied and spread too thin.
16. Our business is equally divided between buyers and sellers. We know what buyers are looking for in a new home and expecting in a transaction.
17. We understand technology to promote our listings and use it to make the process of selling convenient for you.
18. We are effective negotiators and have achieved the Certified Negotiation Expert designation.
19. We believe that sometimes you have to spend money to make money. If a marketing tool makes sense for your property, we are willing to give it a try.
20. We are open minded and embrace new or better ways of doing things. We are always looking for opportunities to learn.

You will be introduced to our team from the very beginning and quickly the true benefits of working with a team will become apparent. Most of the time you are not your agent’s only client. Generally, top agents have other homes to show, market and sell as well as other buyers to assist. A team can benefit you because, when one member is unable to take your call, there is another agent available to assist you. Around the clock support is more common with a well run real estate team. Consider what a great team can do for you to help you buy or sell your home. We can deliver the helping hand and personal touch you need to be completely satisfied.
• Provides a greater pool of knowledge than any one individual can provide on his or her own. When working as part of a team, different agents can specialize in different types of properties or different neighborhoods, allowing them to offer greater insight when it comes to your unique home situation
• Has a team of agents consistently lead generating specifically to find qualified buyers for your home
• With so many tricky moving parts, having a team on your side will help ensure that nothing gets lost in the shuffle; what’s more being able to debate, discuss, and bounce ideas off of one another will also allow your agents to help you reach the best decision possible when it comes to setting a price, accepting an offer, or plotting out the necessary steps for a successful transaction
• Can easily handle numerous transactions and correctly route multiple inquiries
• Can be in several physical locations at once as necessary to help the client
• Is twice (or three times) the number of agents for the same price
• Can only take one phone call at a time
• Can only be in one location at a time
• Includes a single sphere of influence
• Lead generation time for locating qualified buyers is limited
• May become overly dependent on automated systems
• Can get bogged down with multiple transactions and as a result, customer service can suffer
