Arie Yelen

Residential Specialist

Having lived most of his life in various Chicago neighborhoods, Arie loves this city and all of its eclectic neighborhoods. A longtime resident of Evanston, and now Bucktown, Arie has an in-depth and personal familiarity with both Chicago and the greater metropolitan area.

After a successful twenty-year career in the Chicago futures markets, Arie returned to school to earn a Masters' Degree and taught for sixteen years in the Evanston Public Schools. For a period of time, Arie was also partner in a window replacement company and had great satisfaction producing quality work that resulted in satisfied costumers. Arie is a musician who as a sideline supported himself through college and early adulthood playing the trumpet and guitar. When not spending time with his wife, grown children and grandson, playing music is still a great source of personal satisfaction and relaxation.

Arie started his long desired career in real estate as a way of putting to use his previous personal experience of real estate ownership, interest in different phases of construction, and love of all things related to architecture and home design. From his previous experience as both buyer and seller of property, Arie knows that a good broker is an excellent listener who senses and respects clients' needs. At the same time, the broker should be a source of knowledgeable guidance that takes those needs into consideration.

Integrity, business acumen, and congenial advocacy for his clients are qualities that make Arie a desirable representative of both purchasers and sellers of real estate.
