About Aaron

Learn Aaron’s areas of practice.


I am an Attorney who is not afraid of hard work.

I pride myself on a very strong work ethic. I am originally from the countryside in central Illinois near Champaign. I grew up doing real chores, and began working on a farm at the age of 14! My work history ranges from working on a farm to home construction and even retail sales. I use my diverse work background to benefit clients in all of their Real Estate legal needs.

Growing up I played football for Monticello High School, a town where Friday night football would practically shut down the town. I went on to play football in college until I was ultimately recruited in 2012 to play football at North Central College in Naperville during the 2012 and 2013 seasons, 2013 is the first season we made it all the way to the D3 National Semi-Finals! Go Cards!

My personal hobbies are just as diverse as my work history. I love to golf, garden, work on cars, grill and smoke meats, dabble in photography, and I love to DIY project around my own home.

I have a lovely wife, Kelsey, who is a Division Controller for a Fortune 500 company and a CPA. We are both very dedicated to our professional lives, but we always make sure to find time for each other. We enjoy traveling, hosting parties with friends, hanging out with our two cats, Freddie Krueger and Jason Voorhees, and running together. Our favorite activity is to take our boat out to the Illinois River to boat with friends and family.

When you choose me to represent you, your concerns and needs are my primary focus. You can expect me to approach your situation with the exact same concern I would have for my own legal situation. You can be assured that my personality, work history, and passion for the law will best suit you in your Real Estate Journey!

When you sign on with me, your legal matters become my own!

Landlord tenant dispute.
Aaron is very professional He kept me calm I didn't have to say a word. He knew exactly what the Judge was going to say and do. Very happy he got the case dismissed!! Would definitely use him again.

Aaron was exceptional in every way of the process. He explained all questions thoroughly and can be completely trusted. So happy I found him to do this with, and made my wife and I very comfortable buying our new home. Aaron is extremely talented, and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

I Highly Recommend Working with Aaron Vanagaitis
Aaron went above and beyond on our real estate transaction. We've used two other attorneys in the past who mailed it in. Aaron had to spend a lot of extra time on our recent purchase due to outside circumstances, did not complain about it and was helpful, personable and upbeat throughout a long sale and closing process. He is very knowledgable about real estate law. Aaron worked hard for us and has earned all of our future business.

What a great guy!
We found Aaron through our awesome real estate agent to aid in the sale of our home. He did not disappoint at all in any aspect of the transaction. Aaron is extremely ethical and takes great pain to do things correctly - very important in any legal transaction. His character is completely contradictory to all the bad lawyer jokes you hear. No one wants to be involved in legal transactions but Aaron definitely took the difficulty out of this one. His analysis and recommendations were invaluable in moving the sale through the process. Aaron took the time to help me with a completely unrelated matter for which I am grateful and he went above and beyond with a great referral. As previous clients have posted he is extremely responsive, always follows up, and clearly cares about helping his clients. He did a great job for us and I truly believe he will do a great job for you.

Outstanding service
Aaron helped me with the closing on a rental property that I had sold. I shouldn’t say that he helped me, because I didn’t have to do anything except sign a bunch of papers. He even went out of his way to hand deliver the check to me. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends or family. Excellent service to say the least.

Aaron made me feel like he was personally invested from the start. He helped me sell my house and buy a new one. I was amazed at how quickly he responded to any questions via email or text message- usually within the hour every time! I would recommend him and will definitely use him for any future real estate transactions!

Tenant/Landlord and Sale
We had the pleasure of working with Aaron on both the tenant/landlord side as well as handling the sale of our home. Aaron was professional, very easy to talk to, made himself available at anytime and did anything he could to help and made a very stressful journey as positive as he could and never gave up making the outcome right. The sale process of our home was seamless, he got us the paperwork in plenty of time and explained everything we may not have understood. If you need a tenant/landlord attorney or an attorney for buying or selling we absolutely recommend Aaron on every level

Attorney Review
Attorney Aaron Vanagaitis held my hand throughout my entire real estate deal. It was never a time that my calls or emails with many questions/concerns were not answered very timely with accurate information (even on the weekends). He is a very professional, efficient, and helpful lawyer who imparted a wealth of information so that I can be prepared for future real estate purchases. Thank you, Aaron!

Complex Real Estate Transaction
Attorney Aaron J. Vanagaitis assisted my elderly mother in the sale of her residence that she had owned for more than 60 years. The property was in a land trust, which presented an additional set of complex issues that needed to be handled properly and expeditiously. We have been involved in many real estate transaction over the years i.e buying and selling various properties. Our experience with Attorney Vanagaitis was wonderful! Aaron was very patient with my 81 year old mother, which was very important to us. He was always very communicative with her, providing regular status updates. The sale was indeed more complicated than typical, including a 30 day close. There were many moving parts that required Aaron's utmost attention to detail and he did a wonderful job. He made sure that we closed on time and without delay. He always answered our phone calls, text messages, and emails. Aaron made himself available to us seven days a week and late in the evening, when most attorneys are unreachable. Our prior attorneys never took our calls in the evening or on weekends. We liked the fact that Aaron handles everything himself, so you do not need to deal with a legal assistant. With Aaron's past work history and his dedication to making sure that his clients are taken care of, it has changed my view of how Real Estate Attorneys should work for their clients. I will always advise friends and family to use Attorney Vanagaitis as their Real Estate Attorney in the future. Our family highly recommends Aaron for all of their Real Estate needs.

Awesome real estate lawyer!
I'm a first time home buyer and was amazed how smoothly the process went with Aaron! He took the time to meet up in person to discuss the home buying process with me which I really appreciated! He was also available through phone calls and very responsive to my texts with questions. I felt like I learned a lot about real estate from him and would definitely recommend him to future buyers!
