Jeff did not respond to requests for an interview. The following information is from his profile on

"I am from Cincinnati and moved to Chicago after graduating from Miami of Ohio in 1995 with a degree in finance and international business. My wife, Molly, and I are residents and homeowners in Lincoln Park.

"I have been in real estate for 10 years and with Century 21 Sussex & Reilly since it opened in early 2000. In that time, my business has doubled virtually every year.

"My personal philosophy of business is quite simple. I believe in effective marketing, personal service and, most importantly, hard work. I work over 80 hours a week. I am reachable via mobile phone or e-mail at virtually all times of the day.

"I pride myself on my personal commitment and long-standing relationships within the community. As a result, the majority of my existing home sales are generated through previous clients and referrals.

"I was named No. 1 agent in Lakeview from 2002-2006, and in Lincoln Park for 2002. I have also been the highest grossing agent at Sussex & Reilly for the past six years.

"In 2006, my sales exceeded $136 million, elevating my team to one of the top-producing groups, not only in Chicago, but nationwide.

"By having qualified people constantly available, we can ensure that all showing requests are accommodated and that personal attention is our top priority. We believe that this continues to elevate us to the top of our profession."
