Rubenstein Fox Team
Baird & Warner
About Rubenstein

Marlene Rubenstein & Dena Fox, mother-daughter duo of the Rubenstein Fox Team (who run the #1 real estate & relocation team in Chicagoland for HomeLight + Baird & Warner), truly are the yin-yang of brokers in today’s real estate industry. Their complementary skills blend seamlessly to provide their clientele with a comprehensive breadth & depth rarely found in the residential market. “Be they millennials or baby boomers, be they in the city or in the suburbs - our greatest strength is our generational collaboration & our ability to address the divergent needs of different age groups & different types of markets,” says Fox. Marlene’s tenure, tenacity & negotiating expertise coupled with Dena’s financial background, analytic acumen & keen pulse on the mindset of today’s renters, buyers & sellers result in a unique blend of tools & talent that effectively meet the needs of new, repeat & prospective clients. This exceptional blend is the cornerstone of their business & the key to their success & growth. Voted, the No. 1 real estate team throughout the entire Chicagoland area (Chicago Agent Magazine 2016-17), success is something they never take for granted. Their steadfast dedication to both their clients & their profession as well as their conviction to retain their reputation as #1 agents motivate them to always be the best they can be in all facets of every transaction. With a sharp eye to detail as well as a view of the big picture, they are masters in managing their clients’ expectations throughout the entire process…from start to finish and everything in between. Of their many talents & tools, the pre- marketing plan they have created is particularly effective in giving their clients that ever- so-important edge in today’s highly competitive real estate market. Unique to their business model is "how they do business." The Rubenstein Fox Team values the relationships they have built over the years with clients & colleagues, agents & brokers, lenders & attorneys, contractors & vendors. They know that working with others - rather than against them - works in the best interest of those they serve & ultimately provides them with the best possible results. Their growing team includes Laura Kerstein, Silvia Miner, Marc Cornfield , Amanda Ptito & more on the horizon. Dena oversees business in the city with Ptito, Marlene manages the north shore suburban business with Kerstein & Miner while Cornfield bridges the investment gap between the two territories. Their strong work ethic, negotiating and technical skills in collaboration with a multi- lingual offering (French, German, Spanish and now Romanian) create a resourceful, comprehensive & well-connected team that truly makes them "THE" dynamic force in the industry.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Lincolnwood?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Lincolnwood?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Lincolnwood to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Lincolnwood is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
