"My Mission is to be Your Angel"

Alfred grew up in Highland Park and met his wife Debi in 7th grade. They have been married for 47 years and after living in downtown Chicago, they chose to raise their children on the North Shore where they still reside. He is passionate about the communities and homes of the North Shore and looks forward to helping every buyer find the right home and neighborhood to fit their lifestyle. Alfred especially likes to help first time buyers. “The completion of a sound purchase, fulfillment of a plan and the launching of a new stage in life in your first home is one of the greatest feelings.” Guiding you through this process is one of Alfred’s greatest joys. Alfred works with you and communicates in whichever way works best for you. He guarantees every buyer that he will be one hundred percent committed to finding them the right home at the right price since his goal is to finish for you. This outlook has accounted for his success in real estate and in life as his Mission is to be “Your Angel.”

"Alfred did a great job with the sale of our house. We sold the house within 2 weeks of putting on the market and we were very happy with the outcome of the negotiations! Alfred provided a high level of expertise and guided us every step of the way. He made the process very easy and he was very responsive. I would definitely recommend him to others." — user837304

"We used Alfred to both buy our home in Highland Park and sell out townhouse in Buffalo Grove. We had incredible experiences in both transactions. He had an incredible knowledge of all the different areas in Highland Park and of the home we bought. He made great suggestions and we definitely feel he worked on our behalf getting us the best possible investment. When we sold our townhouse in Buffalo Grove, market value made it impossible for us to get our money back. Alfred's knowledge and ability to work with the banks made our transaction smooth and effortless, especially with the short sale. He held our hands every step of the way and we couldn't be any more appreciative for his help. My husband and I would recommend him to anyone!" - allaboutme60069

"Alfred's was 100% our advocate in helping us find our dream home. He was extremely patient as honed in on exactly what we truly wanted by viewing homes for sale for around 2 years. We negotiated on several before the final and perfect home. Alfred was never pushy or frustrated, and in fact kept us focused on the con's as well as the pro's on the homes we had considered. We appreciated that he was not just looking to close, rather, he was focused on making sure we found exactly what we wanted. We bought our new home before listing our existing house in a very tenuous market. It could have been extremely stressful, however, Alfred, carefully priced our home, and marketed it intensely and appropriately. He managed to find the right buyer in three weeks! His professionalism in negotiating and keeping emotions in check on both sides of the table was tremendous. We couldn't have asked for a better representative. Alfred has a heart of gold and is nothing short of an "Angel" keeping our best interest in mind all the time. He was so fantastic that we recommended him to our DAD. Alfred performed his magic yet again for him, and I know he will for you." — user430998

We used Alfred Cohen to rent our town house, and the transaction couldn't have gone more smoothly! It was rented within 24 hours of the list posting, he helped us to make all the necessary decisions, and he even helped us sell our furniture! He was thoroughly knowledgeable throughout the entire process. Alfred also found us our current home! He listened to all our requirements and found us the perfect fit. He led us in the right direction as far as our budget and offers, he was a great negotiator, and ultimately we got exactly what we wanted. We are so grateful for his understanding and we will definitely use him again in the future!" — Jason and Robbyn R.
