Meet John Aylesworth

-->

by Michael H. Wasserman

I’m so very happy to welcome attorney John Aylesworth to the practice. He joined us in February 2017 and our clients and colleagues have been reaping the benefits of his good counsel all spring and summer. John is hardly new to our practice; He has worked with us on individual cases for several years already. Now that he is with us full-time, we are able to help even more buyers and sellers move through the real estate process with sanity intact. John really hit the ground running this year, so you may have already met him.

John brings a great balance of calm and strength, and has a broad depth of experience in residential and commercial transactions, and new condominium development. He brings a roster of his own clients, many of whom consider him an invaluable counselor and friend, another great sign for us.

Like me, John strives to provide great service to our clients and brokers. He works hard to get contracts to the closing table, on time. John is an attentive listener, a practiced and practical negotiator and a fierce advocate.  

A little about John: he graduated cum laude from Valparaiso University School of Law in 1996. Following a stint as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Illinois, John changed his focus to real estate law in 1999 and has been an active practitioner ever since. 

An avid bicyclist and runner, John prefers to commute from his home in River Forest via bicycle or “L”. A true adventurer, he and his son are on a life-long mission to summit the high point of every state. So far, they’ve made it to the top of 10 (only 40 to go!).

Help! My Neighbor’s Old Tree is Growing Over my Roof

Let’s say about 100 years ago, a family planted an oak tree on the edge of their property. Over generations it’s grown into a magnificent tree that provides summer shade, autumn color and a swing for the neighborhood kids. You probably even liked the tree when you bought the house next door to it.

But today, its root system is invading your basement, its acorns bombard your yard and its huge limbs loom threateningly over your roof. By law, can you cut it down? Trim it? Turn it into a boat?
