    My niece has lived in the Chicago area for about 4 years now, she interested in buying a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo. I have a couple of questions.

    Does anyone here know a good real estate broker? and will she need to hire an attorney for the transaction, or will I be able to review the documents (P & S, closing docs, etc) since they are pretty standard in Illinois. Finally, do you know of any properties that would suit a 27 year old young professional?

    I'd love to help but I'm not in Chicago proper. I'm out in the suburbs. In Illinois if you live within 100-150 miles of Chicago people just say they live "in Chicago". :jj:

    @DrivenByDemons is a city dweller I believe. He may have some better insight.

    My advice take some of the money you have fleeced from old people and give it to her to get a nice place which I'm sure she would rather have than real estate advice from her spinster aunt

    that's ok, but you did buy a house, was the transaction fairly straight forward?
