George Selas

George Selas
For nearly a decade, George has been paving his way through the volatile Chicago real estate market. As a member of the Dream Town family since 2002, he has consistently averaged $10M in sales each year while building life long relationships along the way. His business philosophy is simple: "To be a successful real estate agent in today's market, it's imperative that you set yourself apart from the rest. Any realtor can turn a key and open a door but the true value lies in the service and expertise that you provide to a client, which will ultimately be remembered. In addition to this, gaining the respect and trust from a client is what creates a business and personal relationship that lasts forever." As a lifelong Chicagoan, George has seen the transformation of the Second City into one of the most desirable places to live. Having lived in neighborhoods from Rogers Park to Wicker Park to the South Loop, you can say he has a finger on the pulse of the city. Well versed in Chicago architecture, entertainment, and culture, he is not only a seasoned realtor, but your personal concierge service. "Finding a client the right home in the perfect neighborhood is something I pride myself on. From the initial meeting, I can tell what type of neighborhood and what type of property will be a perfect match for each client." George's knowledge of the Chicago neighborhoods and their individual housing markets is also an advantage to home Sellers. He combines expert negotiation skills, familiarity of local sales trends, and advanced Internet advertising to get homes sold fast. In addition to his sales achievements, George has been a principal in several new construction and conversion projects giving him well rounded and diverse resume as a real estate professional.

Julius Dickens

Julius Dickens
Julius joined Dream Town as a residential specialist, bringing a strong work ethic and commitment to his clients' success in real estate. Julius attended the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, where he developed an analytical skill set that serves him and his clients well today. His analysis of a clients' true needs results in identifying the exact type of real estate that will fit their lifestyle--not just for the present, but for future needs as well. A longtime owner of residential and investment properties himself, Julius knows the many rewards (and occasional challenges) involved in buying or selling a home and can put himself in a client's proverbial shoes. This is why he takes the time to know every detail of a client's situation as he would his own, and uses his expertise to consider those specifics with the big picture of the real estate market. Balancing these factors ensures it is the clients' needs that are met, not his own or the industry at large. Discipline and focus are also key tenets of Julius' work ethic. He takes time to know and communicate the ins and outs of a particular property and will provide straightforward answers to questions and concerns. He is keenly aware of the value of a clients' time and can be counted on 24/7 to help with small and large tasks, whether it's facilitating a negotiation or scheduling an appraisal during odd hours. Clients work with Julius directly--not an assistant--and he regularly consults a team of professionals as needed to solve the individual challenges of his clients. West Point is known for the focus, team work, analytical skills, character and work ethic among its students, and Julius is a prime example of that. His education, training and service as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army all demonstrate the breadth of skills and knowledge that Julius brings to his real estate clients.
