Ribbon cutting re-grand opening RE/MAX All Stars

For more than 30 years RE/MAX AllStars has been serving the Niles, community on one of the corners of Oakton & Milwaukee.

In December of 1990, Richard Harczak and Carol (Ficarra) Harczak bought a RE/MAX franchise. Carol a real estate agent serving Niles, for more than 45 years and the #1 Niles agent since 2009 and Richard a Niles businessman owning several businesses including Harczak sausages a staple of the Niles community since the early 50s and a village trustee for more than 20 years. The partners knew that Niles is where they wanted to stay.

In 1990, RE/MAX AllStars opened in their temporary location by Vito's hair salon, while under construction awaiting their more permanent location. In 1991, they moved to their larger and more modern office on the Northeast corner of Oakton and Milwaukee, to accommodate more agents. They spent more than ten successful years at this prime location until the property was sold to Walgreens and they had to move.

Already established on Oakton and Milwaukee they knew they wanted to stay near this intersection. After months of searching, they moved to the Oak Mill mall on the Southwest corner of Oakton and Milwaukee where they remained for the next twenty years. When it was time to find their forever location in Niles, there was no doubt it would be close to the intersection of Oakton and Milwaukee. "People know that Oakton and Milwaukee is where they can find us" says Carol Harczak broker owner of RE/MAX Allstars.

Carol purchased the building at 8032 N. Milwaukee Avenue to be the permanent and forever home of RE/MAX AllStars This building is located in the strip of buildings on the near Northwest corner of Oakton and Milwaukee.

Real estate has always been a way of life for Carol, and her dedication and commitment to the community was seen through the eyes of her granddaughter Nicole O'Doniel. Nicole who has been following in her grandmother's footsteps has already made her own imprint on Niles. Together they have assisted many generations of families in Niles in both the sales and purchases of homes of their homes.

"The Niles community is like family and holds a special place in our hearts. We want to continue being the #1 selling office in Niles for many years to come and giving back to the community that we serve."

With a few delays due to Covid and scheduling conflicts they are excited to have the Niles Chamber of Commerce to officially welcome RE/MAX AllStars in a ribbon cutting ceremony to be held on Tuesday August 16, 2022, at 5:30 pm with the honorable Mayor George Alpogianis, followed by a grand re- opening reception.

RE/MAX AllStars is a multi-lingual office with agents licensed in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Florida, to cover all your real estate needs. They are fully committed to bring clients the best service possible. The majority of the agents have more than 10 years' experience and some as many as 50 years.
