Erik Schwab is a city expert with strong suburban roots, bringing the best of both worlds to the clients he now serves at Urban Real Estate. In the business since 2007, Erik earned his real estate license while completing his B.A. at DePaul University in History and Political Science. With a then-rapidly evolving market, Erik learned early on the importance of helping clients be strong, credit-worthy buyers and smart, savvy sellers. Whether planning to live in your home, or use it as an investment, Erik has the insight to guide his clients, every step of the way.
Originally from the northwest side of Chicago, Erik maintains close ties to his family roots, serving clients in the northwest side and northwest suburbs, as well as much of downtown and many of Chicago’s 77 neighborhoods.
Before embarking on a career in real estate, Erik spent four years working for the Illinois State Senate Assistant Majority Leader as a senate aide. There, he learned the inner-workings of the various branches of government, and often liaised to help address daily business between agencies.
Of his favorite pastimes, Erik most enjoys seeing the Chicago Cubs and Chicago Blackhawks at their home games, attends the city’s myriad of festivals, and tries to park his car now and again to travel the city by bicycle.
