Larissa, a native of Russia, moved to Chicago in 1990. She earned her bachelor degree in applied mathematics at the University of Riga and her masters in computers science at DePaul University in Chicago. Her education and experience with technology and business data analysis are useful skills for her real passion – real estate.
Larissa is dedicated, humble, discreet, patient, and tenacious. She is fluent in Russian and English.
Larissa believes that in order to service the needs of his clients, she must support them throughout all phases of the selling or buying process. For her sellers, that means making a significant investment of her own money to hire a professional marketing crew of photographers, virtual tour companies, and floor plan designers so that she can create a brochure and direct mail campaigns customized to each sellers' unique needs. The photographs and virtual tour are uploaded to over 14 real estate web sites and used to advertise in New York Times, Wall Street Journal, BBC, Financial Times as well as 3 local newspapers. Once a property goes under contract, Larissa manages the pre-closing process, working closely with attorneys, to make sure all deadlines are met and documents are collected properly.
For buyers, Larissa ensures that his clients acquire a thorough understanding of the marketplace, paying special attention to the value, layout, view and finishes of each property under consideration because this will affect whether or not the property holds its value, loses its value, or gains value over time.
Larissa is Certified International Properties Specialist (CIPS) and a member of CIPS. Many of her clients came from different countries, such as Russia, Ukraine, India, South Korea, Egypt, Iran.
She specializes in Chicago's most desirable neighborhoods, including Streeterville, Millennium Park, Museum Park, South Loop, West Loop, Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Bucktown/Wicker Park.
