Born and raised in Chicago and Park Ridge, George grew up working in his families’ small businesses and learned the important life lessons of hard work and customer satisfaction. After attending Loyola Academy in Wilmette, he went on to complete a B.S. degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana (1996); a Masters of Science in Public Health from the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine (1998); and his law degree from Loyola University of Chicago (2003). During his undergraduate and graduate studies, he was active on and off campus in various clubs, sports, organizations, and attended study abroad programs that took him to Lancaster, England (U of I), London, UK (Loyola University School of Law), and Athens, Greece (Tulane University).
George is also a licensed and practicing Illinois real estate broker. This allows him to better understand both the realtor’s and his clients’ experiences as they all work together to buy and sell property.
