Chicago, IL, October 16, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Cindy and Tony Banks are optimistic about the metro Chicago real estate market. It’s why the husband-and-wife team recently purchased RE/MAX Cornerstone, a busy brokerage located at 480 E. Roosevelt Road in West Chicago, Ill.
They have worked as licensed Realtors® for 26 years and say the time was right to purchase the West Chicago RE/MAX office, with which they have long been affiliated.
The residential real estate market may be suffering through challenging times today, but the Banks say the market is poised for a turnaround. They are looking forward to running RE/MAX Cornerstone as the turnaround hits.
“The timing is right for growth in the real estate market,” Cindy said, “And, for an uptick in the residential and commercial real estate markets in the western suburbs.”
Cindy and Tony Banks would know. Neither are newcomers to the residential real estate business.
Tony has also worked as a mortgage loan officer for more than 10 years. During this time, Banks has earned the respect of both real estate agents and his fellow mortgage lenders for the honest and ethical way he does business.
Cindy has sold more than $500 million of real estate during her real estate career and has earned the prestigious RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Award along with induction into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame. For more than a decade, she has been a member of the Top 20, which honors the 20 leading RE/MAX teams and the 20 top individual RE/MAX agents in Northern Illinois based.
RE/MAX Cornerstone, with a current staff of eight agents and three assistants, serves the western suburbs of Chicago.
Cindy and Tony have a set of simple but important goals for their new brokerage: “We want to continue to assist first-time and upgrading buyers, as well as our investors, in securing the best values in this market. We will provide knowledge through years of experience to our sellers and all of our clients regarding the entire real estate process.”
Due to their many years in the residential real estate business, both Cindy and Tony can connect clients with skilled loan officers and real estate attorneys. They can recommend local home inspectors and title companies and are certified to assist both buyers and sellers through either the short sale or foreclosure process, two areas that have become increasingly important in today’s housing market.
Tony Banks also stressed that their RE/MAX Cornerstone office offers many advantages to real estate agents, with its efficient systems, marketing efforts, competitive position and high-tech environment. Tony and Cindy can be reached at www.cindybanks.com or by texting 630-533-5900.
