You can also get an idea of your Gold Coast Condo value at http://chicago.freehousevalues.com/
Basically, a title company is a customer service front for real estate attorneys and insurance agents. The title company makes sure all of the documents are in order, does courier services, does follow up, makes sure all the documents are in place, etc while real estate attorney's work behind the scenes checking the title.
If you haven't sold the property, we do buy properties nationwide. We also offer a consulting service if you want to put your condo on a "lease with an option to buy" program. Basically, you can lease the property for top dollar and sell for full appraised value at the end of the lease term. We have a consulting service that educates you about how to manage risks with rental properties, and have a company that offers products, such as default insurance. If tenant doesn't pay, they will cover your payments for up to 6 months in case of tenant default.
Not using a broker may seem like a money saver, however, doing it on your own will involve considerable marketing time & negotiation expertise when that offer does come in.
Using a broker will remove the stress and usually helps you get a selling price that is higher than you can obtain on your own.
Just let me know if you would like some help.

A real estate attorney can handle the rest... they can review any contract you'd receive, help you negotiate the contract and the inspection, and they'll hire and arrange for the title company. It might be worthwhile to contact a real estate attorney in advance, and go over exactly what aspects of the transaction they're willing to handle, how that might work, and what they will charge you.
