About Us

As an agent who’s an expert in this local area, Millie Lumpkin brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate in the Chicago and south suburban market. It’s not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home

I was born, grew up here and raised my family here. I have worked in real estate for 10+ years and have had transactions through the south side of the city and south suburbs.  I know the area very well.  It is my pleasure to work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter – not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.

I also work with investors. Real estate investors have different needs than a traditional buyer. For investors, my work with you will be shaped by your investment strategy (flipping, buy/hold, wholesaling, etc). I can provide detailed information about trends in the specific neighborhood or community, general industry knowledge, info on recent transactions, and negotiating with the seller to get the deal done. I know that there is a financial goal to be achieved with the transaction and I will help you in realizing that goal.

Sell a Home

If you are thinking of moving, I can help you to successfully sell your home.  The sales process starts with me helping you to understand the market value of your home.  Based on current market value and conditions in the market, we will price your home strategically. We will also meet to discuss maximizing your home’s appeal to potential buyers both online and in person.  It’s also important to discuss your expectations and concerns and also how much you can expect to net from the sale.  Once your home is on the market, I will show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing.  I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

If you are planning to buy or sell, call or email me.  In addition, if you have questions about the real estate industry in general, let me know.
