Our Story

About Us

We are so much more than a full service real estate firm. We’re a group of talented people with a passion for finding the best way of living. People who make every effort to help you live who you are.

Now in its third decade, CG Realty Group is among the most respected real estate firms in Chicago. Principals David Chencinski and Steven Glick spent many years working as residential and commercial brokers before founding CG Realty Group. During those years the pair learned the industry from the ground up while receiving numerous awards and commendations for excellent work.

From the start the goal of CG Realty Group was never to be the “biggest” in Chicago, but rather the “best”! Today CG Realty is ideally poised to offer ground-breaking residential and commercial real estate services while serving each client as if he or she is the only client.

Locally-Owned and independently operated, CG Realty Group is committed to supporting the communities and clients we serve.

Quality work is what Steven is delivering to clients. CG Realty Group presents the highest quality real estate services, but also in creating a positive, enriching overall experience.

What People Are Saying

Having never bought a house or condo before, my wife and I were feeling very nervous and naive about the whole process. We had been living in California and are expecting our first child so decided to move back to Chicago to be closer to herRead More

family. With only 3 months until her due date, we were feeling a ton of pressure and anxiety to find a place to live quickly that we could afford, and more importantly, that we loved.

(CG’s) top priority was always whether the places we were looking for were right for us, and would meet our needs both now and in the future. He didn’t hesitate to point out the flaws in places we thought were perfect, and he didn’t push us on anything at any point. He understood our budget very well and we never were forced to look at places we couldn’t afford. He was available day and night for objective discussion about anything we needed advice on but was always careful to separate his opinions from our needs.

Really, we couldn’t possibly have been happier with anyone else. We highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a new home.

CG Realty manages my apartment, and I’ve been satisfied with every aspect of my experience.

The unit I rent is the only one I own, and I had a LOT of questions on the front end. They answeredRead More

every one patiently and professionally. They know this business inside and out, and that’s very comforting. They made the process of finding renters easy, answered all my questions along the way, and we ended up finding great people.

Once the unit was occupied, they’ve handled everything very well. There were a couple maintenance calls that needed addressing, and they handled them quickly and without undue cost. The service they’ve provided has been great, both from my perspective and from the renters’. Highly recommend.

CG Realty group came in and revived our ailing condo association, in Roscoe Village, by becoming our management company.  Due to problems with our developer the association was in shambles and we were losing money and fighting with each other. Read More

They helped us organize, reviewed our vendors, suggested the appropriate assessments for each unit, brought in contractors to fix our buildings problems, (at very affordable rates) – in this market we were all so depressed about our situation.  CG Realty is a honest, hard working team and we recommend them highly.  They are doing a great job managing our 20 unit building.
