A lawyer by trade, Brendan offers something a little bit different when it comes to protecting his client's interests. While Brendan's law practice is focused on all aspects of real estate law, for the past 14 years, he has been buying and rehabbing 2-flats on Chicago's north side and has served as the volunteer President of his condominium board for nearly a decade. Brendan prides himself on being incredibly patient and responsive, always available for any client need that may arise. Always looking to expand his expertise in real estate, Brendan is a registered title agent with the State of Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation and has completed a Master's Degree (L.L.M.) in real estate law, requiring an additional 325 hours of law school classroom attendance. The proud son of Irish immigrants, Brendan was born and raised in Chicago and is very familiar with all of the nuances that are critical to real estate such as local schools, access to transportation, neighborhood feel and local restaurants. In his free time, Brendan likes to stay active, travelling the world, including climbing 3 of the world's highest 7 summits. He also loves running, having successfully completed the Chicago Marathon twice.
