    Slav Polinski is a long time resident of Downers Grove and a Realtor within the community. He has been with Coldwell Banker since March 2013, and has worked with homes for almost 20 years. Prior to becoming a real estate agent, Slav owned a home remodeling and repair business for 12 years. With this background, Slav brings an expertise to the home buying and selling process which provides significant benefits to both buyers and sellers because he detects aspects in a home that the average Realtor may not which gives his clients the advantage of avoiding potential problems. 

    His eye for design and passion for marketing offers a distinct asset to sellers as he is always looking for creative ways to make his clients homes shine above the competition. As his sellers invest in him and Coldwell Banker, so Slav invests in his clients’ homes via every tool at his disposal - professional photography, videography, licensed stagers, and the latest in technology for the most effective advertising (print and digital). Slav works to achieve maximum exposure and interest in order to sell his clients’ homes as quickly and at the best price as possible. 

    When it comes to working with buyers, he takes pride in helping others accomplish home ownership which Slav believes is still a large part of “American Dream.” Slav knows that it’s one of the most important investments that individuals and families will make through the course of their lives and, therefore, keeps this top of mind when working with clients. It gives him joy to assist them in reaching their goals and obtaining their dreams! 

    As a Realtor, Slav serves his clients with a neighborly approach. Many clients comment on Slav’s warm personality and the ease of doing business with him. He truly gets to know his clients. He realizes that sellers have a history and connection with their home and selling their home can be an emotional process. Often, sellers will share many memories of what they loved most about living in their home and in the area. He finds that these are the things which attract buyers to a home, just as much as the number of bedrooms and location, and he takes time to understand those intangible benefits. 

    As a resident, Slav is a member of Chamber630 and a Board Member of the Rotary Club of Downers Grove. His love and gratitude for the neighborhood is his main reason for joining the Rotary Club as he wanted to give back to the town that has given his family so much. After living here for over 23 years, Slav still appreciates the friendliness of the community. He remarks that it’s been a fantastic place for his wife and him to raise their children because of the year-round local activities, excellent schools, and safe environment. 

    In addition to relishing in all that Downers Grove has to offer, Slav also enjoys photography. He likes viewing any situation or subject from different perspectives. Many of his shots come from him getting out into nature as he takes pleasure in hiking, canoeing, fishing, great campfires, etc.
