Tracy Wurster

Serves Evanston


Some people find work just that- work! For Tracy however, real estate is a passion, a hobby and a love! She has been selling real estate for 17 years and has considered it one of her biggest blessings! Helping people realize their dreams and doing so in a smart, educated and methodical way are what she loves best! In this trying real estate market it is not always easy to "get the job done" quickly. Buyers have many choices these days and Sellers are struggling with how to get the most out of the situation. Providing methodical, well-thought-out advice based on experience is what she prides herself on. Staying on top of the market and maneuvering through the challenges with a plan is her priority both in assisting Buyers and Sellers. As a resident of Chicago's North Shore communities for over 23 years she is very familiar with the neighborhoods, the schools and housing prices and trends.

We had the pleasure of working with Tracy on the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. In both transaction, she was knowledgeable, responsive, fun to work with and a strong representative for us in the negotiations. She and her team were fully committed to our successful sale and purchase and were fantastic to work with. I also appreciate the referrals Tracy provided for our real estate attorney, mortgage broker and moving company. They were all great choices. Tracy is very skilled at her craft. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her." - The Granack Family

David has a passion for helping people and has found that assisting people in selling their home is what makes his career rewarding. With a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a background in Project Management, he brings a completely different dimension to selling homes. He has stated that marketing a home should be a systematic approach that never overlooks any one part of the process. David believes that every home that is on the market for sale should be staged to its highest potential. The listing agent must bring the emotion out of the buyer to maximize value. David has a beautiful wife and 4 children. His family continues to live and grow in Arlington Heights. He has had the opportunity to participate in coaching basketball in school leagues and AHYBA for many years. David has also had the privilege of working on a local private School Board and donates his time working on marketing functions for the school. He believes that giving back to the community is a necessity.

Hi, I know that you will be contacted by several other agents while you are going through this process, but please realize that just because someone got to you first, it doesn't mean that they are going to be a good fit for you. I have been helping people like you buy, sell and invest their real estate for the past 25 years. I grew up in the business. My dad owned four Real Estate brokerages when I was younger, so I guess you can say it's in my blood. I'm also an Illinois Licensed Loan Originator. So I can get a global view of what we are looking at purchasing for buyers and help craft an offer to set you up for success based on your goals. Every property will have a top of the line virtual tour, floorplan, website, brochure and will be listed just about everywhere. Also I accompany the majority of the showings to try to overcome objections on the spot and enhance features of your property. That's all the room I have. I could go on and on :-)

Arlyn Tratt is an OUTSTANDING realtor and I would highly recommend him. My fiance and I very much appreciate his professionalism, knowledge, and sound advice while shopping for our first home. He was extremely helpful throughout the entire process, and it was very obvious that he had our best interest at heart. Thank you Arlyn!

What a fun time in a rough period! We'd lost Dad and Virginia was our confidant, mentor and savior. I know some of it was luck and we had to compromise on some things, but she supported a buyer that was meant to get the house and she bent over backwards to make it happen. We sold during Covid for crying out loud! She has so much positive energy and she tries her best to bring out all of the special elements of what you are selling to personalize the experience for the buyer. Give her a call!"
