Well….where do I start? SOOOOO much to say…so little time…write something about yourself… well, let's be real…it's not always the easiest thing to do….But I guess there's only one place to start…from the beginning…the short version preferably I suppose…(stepping up to the podium, clearing my throat…"tap, tap" uh… is the microphone working?!)
I'm Karen Biazar…born in the age of Aquarius on the North side of Chicago to 1st generation eastern euro folk…adopted…chosen, more specifically…wasn't even supposed to be here by any stretch of the imagination…yet TA DA!!!! Here I am…. Someone to be contended with…giving my best at whatever I do…never giving up…never giving in…self made…No silver spoon in my mouth …My father used to say "You kids will never understand the value of a dollar". Coming from a man who grew up during the depression, ate mashed potatoes for dinner and made jello on the back porch because they didn't have a refrigerator…that's a serious statement! Motivating at the very least. In any event those words ring thru my ears regularly and the lesson I learned from that statement have carried over into my adult life in many ways…I started North Clybourn Group with $100 and an idea…and I'm proud to introduce, without further ado…my career. I was not a genius, a strategist, or MBA…just in the right place at the right time…with the right idea and the right ATTITUDE.
Have I reached the part where I get to tell you how I know my sh*t and that I kick a*s daily? Where I let you know that I am the coolest mom and some very lucky guy's wife who thanks God for being married to a superwoman for the past twenty plus year’s…Where I do more before breakfast than the US Marine Corp… Where I get to say that I am the best second baseman in 12 inch fast pitch, play racquetball, work out regularly, lift weights, run, ski and swim and recently kicked a 1 pack a day habit? Where when you call me you only listen to WXRT or WLUP for your on hold listening pleasure? Where I couldn't have done any of this without keeping it simple and straight up.
Welcome to home cooked real estate 101…where the daily specials never change from getting the straight dope and the job done…real world…real solutions…real honest…really.
We're sooo happy to have purchased this building. It was a long road getting here but it all worked out in the end. For awhile there I thought we were never going to find the right place, but we did.
Thanks for your continued help with all of these last details.
Just wanted to say a big "Thank you!" from Joyce and I to all of you!
I really appreciate all the watching out you guys do!
Just so you know. I appreciate all your follow up, attention to detail and getting back to me in a timely manner. It is the way it should be and it is refreshing. I sometimes do not hear from Realtors for 1 to 2 days with simple showing requests! Amazing how some people stay in business. Just thought I would let you know.
Few people excel at what they do. You are a true rarity and your can-do attitude is a standard we hope to emulate. Thank you for your support with the project.
Thanks to you all as well. Cristina and I were lucky to have you on our side. Trusted your judgment 100% and made the process go as smoothly as it could have. Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!
Just want to say THANK YOU to all of you!
This was a lovely, pleasant, well-executed deal - from 1st showing to the close!
Thanks for that!
