I work with investors, from Europe, I am multi lingual, and member of International Real estate community with listings over Western Europe and France-Italy -France and Chicago

I can refer to a very good Real estate attorney in Western Europe to make sure to avoid extra taxation when you are buying properties outside Europe , the new laws and Europe regulations are changing for 2013-2014 for investors in Europe that want to buy properties in another continents .

People that bought investment in 2013 from Western Europe they have to declare , to the gobernment of Europe now ....

Good luck

I have experience in buying for flips and rentals. Both personally and with clients. If you are interested in the Chicago market, we should talk. If I am not the right fit, I can point you in the right direction.

I'm sure you'll get lots of responses. I see that you've also inquired about Atlanta today and Detroit last year, and you've asked as other questions that indicate that you're already in the U.S. Good luck. Hopefully this is a real inquiry, not something to yank agents around.
