Our Services

We represent residential real estate clients in the Chicagoland and suburban areas. Whether you are buying or selling a home, townhouse, or condominium, we can help guide you through the often complex process of the residential real estate transaction.

We work hard to ensure that our clients' best interests are being advocated throughout the purchase or sale of their home. Successful real estate transactions require a depth of real estate knowledge, attention to detail and diligent communication. We pay careful attention to our clients' needs, handle each case thoroughly, and keep lines of communication open between involved parties.

Our legal services are professional, thorough, responsive, and proactive and our rates are very competitive. It gives us great joy to see satisfied clients at the closing table and to help them with the new chapters in their lives.

"I did my first real estate closing with Anna about five years ago and quickly switched my recommended attorney for all real estate closings for my clients to her. Anna is very thorough, responsive, professional and friendly. I would highly recommend her for any real estate transaction."

"Over the past few years, the Law Offices of Anna Shilov Sterk have handled a variety of legal matters for us including the purchase and sale of a Chicago condo as well as the purchase of a single family home. They have been handled pleasantly and with accuracy, efficiency, and confidentiality. We live in another state so knowing that this work would be done well and in a timely manner has been very important. We have every confidence in Anna and will continue to use her services for IL legal work, and will not hesitate to recommend her."
