Alice Scifo Managing Broker/Owner CDPE, CNE, GRI, SFR, MRP
I have been a Realtor since 1990 when I turned my dream of building our family home into a realty. Back then my husband Tony, myself and our 2 children Tony & Jenny embarked on what was a wild ride into building our family home.
Since then many things have changed but the one focus in my life has been to help people find the security in home ownership. My children are grown and have families of their own. They are both successful Attorneys. My husband has retired from the Corporate World and has joined me by working hand in hand in the turning Dreams into Reality world of our RE/MAX Advisors Realty Family.
During this time we have both been vibrant members of the Community. From being Co-Presidents of The Carmel Catholic High School PTO and the Carmel Catholic High School Athletic Boosters, for many years, even after our children had graduated, members of the Barrington Enlightened Taxpayers Association Board, Cub Scout & Boy Scout Leaders, Girl Scout Leaders, Advocates of The Barrington Area Council on Aging, Members of the Illinois Association of Realtors, Wisconsin Realtor Association, North Shore Barrington Association of Realtors, Main Street Association of Realtors, Lakes Area Association of Realtors as well as a litany of other Associations. You get the picture. We care about our Community and helping the Home Ownership Dream become a Reality.
One of our Special interests have been helping all of our Military Personnel both Active & Veteran from the Army, Navy, Marine, & Reserve branches. It does not matter your rank as we have made dreams turn into Reality for Privates to a 3 Star General. Rank does not matter, Your Dreams Matter! Our goal is to walk beside you, hand in hand and move mountains if we must, to make home ownership within your grasp. If it means Face Timing homes while you are on active duty across the world to the traditional showing of homes, we do it all to make you part of our RE/MAX Family.
My Client-First Philosophy
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a Illinois real estate professional, I’ve also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This “client first” philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I’ve found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I’ve always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They’ve also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
So when you decide that you’d like to buy or sell a home please contact me so that I can make your Dream your Reality!
