About Victor M. Lopez
I was born in Chicago, IL and moved to the west suburbs with my family in 1972. I went to Iowa State University then to University of Illinois at Chicago and graduated from UIC in 1994 with a 5 year BArch Degree in Building Sciences. I've worked as an Architect for 15 years. I worked on various types of architectural projects including Commercial, Retail, Healthcare, Hospitality, Residential, Educational, Institutional, Restaurants, Porches and other projects. During the economic downturn projects slowed down, so I decided to pursue a career as Real Estate Investor. I went to various real estate investor seminars and I learned about how to whole sale homes using guerilla marketing, how to buy a home in a tax sale, how to buy 100+ unit apartment buildings and how to get grants to fund your investment properties, start your own business and use grant money towards your education. I also took a real estate appraisal class too. I decided to get my lease agent license and I started working for HP Realty, Inc. from 2009-2017 and now I'm working at Baird & Warner starting 3/1/2017. I’m a Licensed Broker Associate / Realtor. I already closed on 8 properties and I'm looking forward to meeting new Buyers / Sellers to help them find their new home or sell their home. I'm here to help people move forward in their property decisions and their lives. I'm a very ambitious person and I plan on getting managing broker’s license in a few years and then open my own office. I’m familiar with all types of homes, whether they’re old or new, brick or frame or concrete, luxury to standard type homes, and I have a lot of skills to offer. I worked on number of residential homes and commercial buildings that needed rehab. I measured and computer drafted many types of properties, single family homes, home additions and commercial projects. I worked with many contractors to make sure they complied with the construction documents, construction schedules and shop drawing submittals. I addressed and solved many construction problems in the field with my architectural background skills. During the house walkthroughs, I can help you see any construction problems with the home that a normal buyer wouldn’t notice to make sure your new home won't be a headache, because your home is one of your biggest investments in your life. In addition to my architectural skills, I have developed very strong marketing skills as a realtor.  I use the computer heavily in property marketing in terms of using social media  services, MLS and internet marketing websites to get your home on the market and get as much exposure as possible. In addition to newspaper, magazines and postcards to get it sold as quickly as possible. My goal is to help you find a home or sell your home.

Neighborhoods that I work:
West Suburbs: Forest Park, Oak Park, River Forest, Berwyn, Westchester, Hillside, Elmhurst, Villa Park, Oakbrook Terrace, Oak Brook, Hinsdale, Downers Grove, Westmont, Clarendon Hills, Darien, Lombard, Lisle, Naperville, Glen Ellyn, Wheaton
Chicago:  Wicker Park, Bucktown, Ukranian Village, Lincoln Park, Logan Square, Avondale, West Loop, Pilsen, Bridgeport and many other locations.

I created a home / apartment video tour channel on Youtube.com for Buyers or Renters looking for a quick home tour of the property before scheduling an appointment to see the home in person.

I here to help you find your next home or sell your home.  I can meet you between 10am to 10pm, 7 days a week.

Additional marketing skills: Website building

Yes, I designed, organized and created this website myplaceinchicago.com from scratch by myself. No real estate website templates, made from a blank screen. It's not your typical realtor website, I try to be as helpful as I can possibly be to any potential homebuyer or seller. It's not the perfect website but it helps me serve the purpose for what I want in a website. Also, I used a black background instead of a white background because it's easier on your eyes, especially when you're looking at your phone in the morning. A bright screen uses more energy from your smart phone battery life than a dark background.

Committed to helping our clients find their new homes and helping property managers find quality tenants for their vacancies
I've recently closed on several properties so far this year. I was an architect for 15 years, then a lease agent for 5 years and now I'm a broker associate. I've met over 7000 people in the past 5 years, so I have a good knowledge about the market and what people are looking for in a home and what to look for when buying a home. I lived in Chicagoland all my life. I'm a hard working professional here to help you find your next home. I can help you spot construction, mechanical, electrical, plumbing defects in a home before you make an offer. See my linkedin website for my architectural resume of projects that I worked on.
Property Sales Experience
The following are condos, townhouses and homes that I closed on this year so far, so I'm building my skills and experience in buying and selling homes helping people through out the buying and selling process.

HP Realty Reviews

"My daughter and I moved to Chicago from Sydney Australia and needed to find housing that meet our specific needs. With Victor's help we found an apartment in Bridgeport. We love our new home. Victor answered all of our questions and made the application transaction very simple and painless. We've moved in within a few days! He answered all of our questions regarding the neighborhood and personally took us on a tour of its highlights. He proved very patient and understanding. We highly recommend Victor!" - John L.

"HP Realty does a great job at treating their clients needs with the respect and professionalism that is deserved. Hector loves the world of Chicago real estate, is incredibly knowledgeable, and will treat you like family (the good kind anyway). I worked here for a year and can definitely say that you're in capable hands with this brokerage." - Matt R.

"I am very happy I found Victor! I saw an ad for an apt at the beginning of this week, sent an email and within a day he called me back to shedule a showing. Once I got there, I met with him and the landlord and we had a great time. They showed me the place I inquired about but also a bigger one that was still occupied at that moment but the people were about to move out. At the end of the day, I loved the second one and even though it wasn't the one I came for, I signed the lease for it yesterday. I am really happy everything went so great (and so fast!) and I can't wait to move in!
Thanks Victor!" - Linda K.
