So, wondering what will happen if you enter your email address above?  Well, First you will get an email telling you a little about what I can do to help you find your perfect home here in Chicago. When you click the “Setup Your Stream” button, In just a couple minutes you can set up the same alerts professionals use to stay on top of the market. You can find out immediately with real-time emails and text alerts or stay acquainted with the occasional weekly or monthly market update.

There’s no commitment, you can tweak your results, or unsubscribe at any time. I’m sure you’ll find this very useful to to find the perfect home.

So when you “Setup Your Stream” You’ll go to a page asking for a zip code or city, and your max price. When you click through it will give you a change to add additional details and ask to create an account (So you can manage your search and preferences at any time).  You will see additional fields such as number of Bedrooms, Bathrooms and Square feet. Also your name and a password field to create an account so you can manage search options, and frequency of contact, and even the ability to get real time results when something new comes on the market… Yes, in real time!

So now, click on the “Let’s Go”  button to see the initial properties located! Once you are on this page, you will see large photos of the properties, and some basic information.  You can favorite properties, or make a comment. Such as what you like or don’t like about the property. Until now, we’ve just done the basics. And it should have taken you about 1-2 minutes or so!

But, now we are getting to the good stuff! If you click on the “alerts” button you see see several options to get emails from the system. Choices will be:

  • Realtime
  • Daily
  • Weekly You will also be able to select the type of updates you want to receive including:
  • New Listings Only
  • New and Updated listings
  • Updated listings Only

Now… I have even quicker way to stay ahead of your competition (other buyers) in this hot Chicago market. If you have supplied a phone number in the account you created, you can get real time text messages for new listings that match your search criteria! Again, because I don’t want to send you anything you don’t want, you will need to click “verify”, you’ll get a text message with a code, and need to enter this code into the page to begin getting realtime texts for new properties.

I suggest after you log out, you bookmark this cloudstreams page so you can return at any time and update search criteria, change contact settings, etc. Of course, you can also just call me at 312-650-9434 and discuss what you are looking for and have me create a search for you.
