He uses his enthusiasm and knowledge of Chicago, and it's diverse neighborhoods and submarkets, to deliver an exceptional customer service experience. Gaining trust and confidence from his clients, Axel has been able to take his clients, as first and second year renters, through the purchasing process, and then onto the sale of their first home, all the while delivering a high level of customer service. To that end, Axel's clients continuously come back to him as their trusted real estate professional.    After graduating from the University of Kansas, he moved back to the city he loves and started his real estate career shortly after.

Using his exposure first hand to the different types of inventory and neighborhoods that Chicago has to offer, Axel delivers unique insight to his clients and caters to their every need.    When Axel isn't devoting his time to real estate and his clients, he can either be found glued to his television watching his alma-mater's mens basketball team, at a neighborhood park with his dog Bear, or out and about with his new son Theo and his wife Allie.
