About Paul Horvath

As a seasoned real estate professional, I have an intuitive understanding of how the local housing market is impacted in today’s economy. My knowledge of the current financial and lending environment has enabled me to guide numerous clients in saving thousands of dollars in upfront costs and even more in long-term expenditures. I personally serve each client and do not delegate to junior agents or assistants, all while staying ahead of the latest sales and marketing trends. Unlike other top-producers, I have a strong comprehension of building and construction which plays an integral role in determining the feasibility of decorating and design ideas, while also helping me to recognize property conditional issues which may pose as obstacles with some lending programs. I pride myself on being an effective negotiator and efficient communicator, with the talent and resources that are imperative in helping buyers and sellers meet their housing goals.

I have been a licensed real estate advisor for over 20 years and have over 30 years of sales and marketing experience. As a Chicago area resident for over 45 years, I grew up in the western suburbs and put myself through college by working in construction and construction related sales. After graduating from DePaul University in the top of my class with a Degree in Finance and Economics, I took a supervisory position with a distinguished financial services firm and within a few months was named the VP of their Regulatory Accounting Division. Recognizing my talents in sales and marketing, I was pursued by the president of another highly regarded financial services firm to take over as the VP of their Sales and Marketing Division. It was at this point in my life when I developed an interest in real estate and began investing and managing my own income properties. Interacting directly with people in a face-to-face environment while helping them achieve their dream of ownership made me realize that I wanted to take my talents even further, so I embarked on my career in real estate and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. My history of knowledge and experience has proven to be a vital asset to hundreds of extremely satisfied clients over the years and it would be my honor and privilege to bring this expertise, along with my total dedication, to you.

On a personal note, I have been married for over 25 years to my high school sweetheart and best friend and we have two terrific children, two rescued dogs and a rescued cat. I thank God every day for these and the many other blessings He has given to me throughout my life. Free time is family time which we spend most of it biking, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, star gazing or taking extended road trips. I also enjoy playing the guitar as a form of relaxation and I love learning about history, especially local history. I consider myself an excellent cook and I love trying all types of cuisine from authentic Asian to Middle Eastern.
