Kyle Johansen was born and raised in Glen Ellyn, with stops along the way in Oxford, Ohio and Chicago. This blog is simply about life in the western suburbs of Chicago, with a slant on real estate. Here you’ll find local news, reviews and ongoing market updates.

My primary passion in real estate is pricing and marketing homes for sellers. I love researching and analyzing statistical trends to better understand our local real estate markets, because each market has its own unique story. When I’m not pricing and marketing properties, I enjoy the outdoors, sports and a good laugh. I received a Bachelor’s degree from Miami of Ohio and a Master’s degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from Loyola Chicago.
