Print Story | Email Story
When selling your home, you want the experience to be short and sweet. That is, you don’t want to suffer through months and months of fruitless showings; and once you find a buyer, you want the transaction to go smoothly from start to finish. A big part of ensuring that your house sells quickly, for a fair price and without any hitches is to hire the right realtor. You want someone who is experienced, who works regularly with houses in your price range and who is well respected by colleagues and clients. You want someone like Chaz Walters. He and his company, Hot Property, are well-known for success, action and willingness to go the extra mile for clients and service. Walters’ boutique-style residential real estate office is a step ahead of the industry. The company provides the latest in technology to each agent and marketing from cutting edge billboards to public relations to advertising campaigns. Walters is one of Chicago's leading residential real estate sales agents with average annual sales of $50 million. He has established a reputation in the real estate market for action and excellence nationally as well as locally. Following a close to 15-year career at another major real estate franchise, Chaz decided to open an office that fosters a people-driven philosophy and facilitates a culture of working closely with clients to buy and sell real estate and surpass client's expectations. “Because your home is the single most valuable -- and valued -- possession, entrust the sale of your home or find your future home with a real estate agent who is working hard for you,” says Walters. Hot Property is bringing together the best of both worlds -- the knowledge of established real estate leaders and brands with the edginess, drive and passion of entrepreneurship. All the marketing and word of mouth has made Hot Property a recognized brand in the Chicago real estate market. The company fields calls from as far away as London. The branding has paid off in another, unexpected way, as well. In October, ABC launched a show called “Hot Properties,” a sitcom about four women who run a Manhattan real estate office. Walters is currently in licensing negotiations with Warner Brothers Television (WBTV). “We have spent 10 years successfully building the Hot Property brand,” says Walters. “We believe that Hot Property will continue to grow and stand for excellence in real estate and this sitcom is another opportunity for gaining widespread brand awareness.

Lanesborough Search for Lewis Lent Evidence Comes Up Dry

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Massachusetts and New York law enforcement officers searched for evidence linked to serial killer Lewis Lent Jr. at a local property on Tuesday.  
Nothing was found.
According to the Berkshire County District Attorney's Office, the town property has previously been searched in connection with the same case. 
"No additional evidence was recovered during yesterday's search," DA spokesperson Julia Sabourin said.
Lent, 74, is serving a life sentence for the 1990 murder of 12-year-old Jimmy Bernardo of Pittsfield and the later killing of Sara Ann Wood in Herkimer, N.Y.  Over a decade ago, he confessed to the 1992 murder of James Lusher.
“On Tuesday, June 18th a joint law enforcement effort conducted a search of a property in Lanesborough, Massachusetts in connection to unsolved crimes allegedly committed by Lewis Lent in the 1990s. The property has previously been searched before in connection to the same case,” Sabourin wrote in a statement.
“Law enforcement bodies are in regular communication regarding the unsolved crimes to have allegedly been committed by Lewis Lent. Today's search is a part of an ongoing effort to solve cases involving missing children that may have been among Lent's victims. Law enforcement in both Massachusetts and New York are dedicated to bringing justice for the children who remain missing and will continue to investigate all leads until their cases have been solved."
