Before he was a broker and part of the ChicagoLiz team, Justin Amundson spent several years in the design field and was Liz Kelly’s neighbor. They became fast friends, and after countless dinner parties, fabulous cocktails and conversations about architecture, they began working together in real estate.
Ambitious, diligent and accommodating, Justin combines his design background with his love for Chicago to provide clients a smooth, outstanding real estate experience. Originally from Wisconsin, Justin has called Chicago home for the past 20 years and is passionate about the city’s sense of community. Working with sellers, first-time buyers, investors or anyone else looking for their place in the city, Justin offers tailored solutions to help you exceed your goals.
Justin approaches real estate from the perspective of an interior designer. Having worked in the home furnishings industry and in a high-end design firm, he understands the possibilities a property can provide, from simple updates to complex renovations. Whether you’re staging your home to sell or searching for your future residence, Justin looks out for you with an eye towards upgrade options and will always caution against potential design flaws.
Since moving to Chicago, Justin has lived on the North Side—and he currently resides in the lakefront neighborhood of Edgewater. He’s worked extensively in the downtown area, Near West and North Side, but is constantly exploring and learning more about what the city has to offer.
Justin is just as committed to his hobbies as he is to real estate and design. You might spot him running along the lakefront on any given day, no matter the season. You may catch him on stage playing the French horn. And if he isn’t doing either, he’s probably toiling away in his garden.
