I wanted to interview Gary because he’s a numbers guy and he’s got one of the most popular real estate blogs in Chicago, “Getting Real.” Gary’s blog is full of facts, not sales pitches. Gary cuts through all the B.S. and just tells you what’s really happening with Chicago real estate. If you’re considering buying or selling a home in Chicago, you gotta check out Gary’s blog and his website first.
