About Us


Our Mission

Historic Realty Consultants is a simple concept developed, that we could A- bring seekers of historically preserved homes to the Buyer and B- help owners of older properties showcase the strongest and most impressive features to these prospective buyers (even if it's something as elementary as hardwood flooring).

We STRONGLY believe that painting a picture through research, architectural description & eye-catching imagery - will fetch the strongest pool of enthusiasts - while illustrating a home well cared for.


Glenn & Matt

Glenn Garlisch (the Left Brain) was born and bred in Oak Park, IL where he was submerged in the numerous Architectural History cultures from youth. He raised his family between Forest Park & St. Charles, and has owned several Victorians throughout the years. He has also traveled extensively throughout the world, and spent a good amount of time living in South America and learned about Spanish Colonial architecture as well.

Glenn just left historic Batavia for Darien, IL where he continues to explore this new area and add to his 15 years involved in the Real Estate industry.

Matt E. Schademann (the Right Brain), a life-long N.W. Sider - was born in Park Ridge, grew up in Norridge and northwest Bungalow neighborhoods in Chicago, spent many years in Old Irving and opened several photography studios in Jeff Park & Roscoe Village before making his 1927 Berwyn Bungalow home.

In 2001 he founded the Jefferson Park Historical Society as its first President, which has now flourished into the Northwest Chicago Hist. Soc.

He continues to engage in the communities across Chicagoland, having founded the fast-growing activist and educational non-profit 'Preservation Berwyn' in 2014.  It is this organization which keeps him and 1300 members on the cutting edge of knowledge sharing, rediscovering formulas, techniques, workflow & historical accuracy in dealing with historic homes.
