Sue Fox, Realtor, CMS/@properties/3101 N Greenview Ave./Chicago, IL 60657
Sue Fox, a fourth-generation Chicagoan, lives in the lovely tree-lined neighborhood of Andersonville. She is a historic preservationist who volunteers for the Chicago Bungalow Association and belongs to the Chicago Architecture Foundation, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and other conservation groups.
Trained as a journalist, Sue is a meticulous researcher and a tireless advocate on behalf of her clients. It was while working as a reporter for the Los Angeles Times that Sue became interested in real estate, beginning with a dilapidated 1913 Craftsman bungalow that she bought and restored to its former glory. She became friends with her realtor and started imagining a career that combined her interests in helping people, housing, architecture and preservation.
“I was one of those people who kept going to open houses every Sunday, even after I bought a house,” Sue said. When she moved back to Chicago 10 years ago to be closer to her family, Sue earned her real estate license and began helping people find the homes that matched their dreams. She has worked extensively with first-time buyers, people relocating from other cities, sellers and investors. Sue has also owned homes and investment properties in California, Texas and Illinois.
As a former reporter with an eye for detail, Sue has a thorough understanding of every piece of the home-buying and selling process, from working with lenders and inspectors to attorneys and title companies. She makes sure to carefully explain each step to her clients. In 2012 and 2013, Sue was honored with an Outstanding Sales Achievement Award as a Top Residential Producer by the Chicago Association of Realtors.
Sue has a bachelor’s degree with high honors in history from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, and a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University in New York, NY. As a Los Angeles Times reporter, she was part of a team that won the Pulitzer Prize in 2004 for coverage of the Southern California wildfires.
In her free time, Sue enjoys reading the newspaper, writing, playing soccer, painting watercolors and visiting historic homes. Please visit her real estate blog at www.hometochicago.com!
