Kyle was a friend of a friend. I was introduced to him this spring, and we began the condo search shortly thereafter. At our first showing, I remember thinking to myself: This is the chillest guy I’ve ever met. It was true and remained true throughout the entire process. Kyle has a calming presence about him, confident and unshaken. The moment he walked into this particular condo in Wicker Park, he was ready to make an offer. And so we did.
The place is a quintessential bachelor pad: dark wood accents, custom built-ins, exposed ductwork and a grill-friendly balcony. He found it in February and closed in April. To celebrate, I gave him a bottle of Grey Goose (he’s a vodka guy) and Crate & Barrel glassware. I can just picture his home bar now — surely it’s fully stocked with the good stuff.
