Alfred Cohen is a successful Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Glencoe. He works to serve the real estate needs of buyers, sellers and investors. Alfred is committed to achieving successful sales for all of his clients and truly loves his work. He serves the following North Shore communities: Glencoe, Highland Park, Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, Winnetka, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Glenview, Northbrook.
Alfred’s background in residential real estate, commercial real estate and auctions has given him a unique and extensive education in accelerated marketing. This has become his specialty: getting the job done in a timely process, which results in a satisfied customer and an expedited sale. Alfred tells people who are considering selling their home that it is a, "time oriented sale. You define the timeframe and I bring in the universe of buyers that create a competitive atmosphere and the concept of scarcity, even in a saturated market.” Alfred believes that looking at all residential real estate as time oriented sales creates a sense of urgency. He is determined to achieve success in a reasonable period of time for each seller. Market statistics show that if the listing sells in under 90 days it is almost certain to sell for more than if it were to sit on the market for a longer period of time. With his market knowledge and experience in pricing, he helps you to choose a price that is certain to net you the highest possible value for your home. To accomplish this, Alfred utilizes the resources of Coldwell Banker, the number one brokerage on the North Shore, to market your home on over 60 major news and search sites including Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, Yahoo, Homefinder/Chicago Tribune and Coldwell Banker National and Local (the latter of which receives over triple the online views of any competitive brokerage). Your home will also have its own website, which helps ensure more search engine results. Alfred also utilizes his vast professional and social networks to give your home a ‘buzz’ and to get people talking.
Alfred grew up in Highland Park, met his wife Debi of 38 years in 7th grade, and, after living in downtown Chicago for a few years, they chose to raise their children on the North Shore. He is passionate about the real estate and communities of the North Shore and looks forward to helping every buyer find the right home and neighborhood to fit their lifestyle. Alfred especially enjoys helping first time buyers. Buying your first home is one of the greatest feelings: the completion of a sound purchase, fulfillment of a plan and the launching of a new stage in life. It is one of Alfred’s greatest joys to guide you through this process. Alfred works with you and communicates in whichever way you work best. He likes for clients to know that he is always happy, positive and looking to do good for people. This outlook has accounted for his success in real estate and in life. He guarantees every buyer that he will be one hundred percent committed to finding them the right home.
