Helaine Cohen, Founder

In 2002, Helaine began her real estate brokerage career. By 2010, she blended her unique background in marketing and technology with her love of the Chicago condo market and launched ChicagoCondoFinder.com. Since then, Helaine has continued to expand and upgrade her site to keep it at the forefront of technology. She has also grown a team of agents that employ her strategy to provide clients with unparalleled service and experience. Today, the successful site, offers the very best destination for the city’s condo buyers and sellers looking to make the most of their opportunities in the current, ever-evolving market. Helaine’s extensive market and building knowledge, neighborhood insights and dynamic marketing plans capitalize on the latest tech tools and provide prime exposure to serve the needs of CCF buyers and sellers. Abundant repeat and referral business speaks volumes about the CCF client experience.

Helaine has been consistently recognized among the Top 1% of brokers in Illinois as well as being a top broker in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network. With a BSBA degree in Marketing from Boston University and an MBA from Babson College, Helaine enjoyed a successful sales career in the technology industry before combining all her passions into her real estate career. While she has worked in both real estate auction marketing and commercial investment sales, her primary focus is residential sales.

Every morning, Helaine reminds herself of this simple phrase – “to attract positive things in your life, start by giving off positive energy.” The power of feeling gratitude allows happiness, meaning and abundance into her life, which ultimately drives her business success.

“[In a home] You’re making an investment in what could be the most important asset you’ll ever have. The right moment is when you know where you’re going to live for a while, when you find the home that fits your family, and when it’s at level that fits in with your income and ability to make a down payment and then I would get a very long mortgage… 30-year mortgage and the rate will be fabulous, and there is no sense waiting if those conditions exist."
