The start of something special
Lisa began her career in real estate in 2006 in the development sales market that saw the South Loop of Chicago rise to prominence. Within just two years, Lisa was successfully managing development teams to obtain some of the more noteworthy project completion numbers on record. In 2011 Lisa came to @properties to begin a focused effort towards expanding her residential business by developing a sales team capable of delivering the highest level of service while accommodating the growth of a successfully growing client list. The transition to @Properties seemed effortless. Both Lisa and her new company shared a mutual vision of heightened success through the cultivation of successful relationships. She knew she would have the support of a Real Estate firm that had made a name for itself in Chicago by choosing client satisfaction in the deals they had brokered. She would now bring her similar determination for success and her aspirations for team development to award winning status and reputation.
In 2012 Lisa began the My Chicago Properties Group in hopes of forging a sales team capable of meeting the demands of Chicago’s ever changing Real Estate Market while maintaining the intimacy of a boutique agency. She set out to develop a “Five Star” Real Estate experience highlighted by an emphasis on the agent /client relationship. From the beginning, the steps to achieve her goals were simple - maintain the same attentiveness she had grown accustomed to providing her clients while cultivating new relationships with her growing client base. Still, it was evident that the success achieved prior to the formation of the team was due in large part to the relationships built and the loyalty earned. In order to continue that trend, any new expansion would require carefully inserted team members who shared work attributes and aspirations similar to Lisa’s. The impact of Sara’s arrival to the team in 2012 was both positive and immediate. Her work ethic and disposition garner praise with each deal she is a part of. Clients are left joyfully satisfied knowing an agent of her knowledge and compassion has their best interests at heart. Together, their hard work, attentiveness, and dedication to client happiness have proven to be the winning combination in earning swift and effective results.
In 2014 Alyse joined the team to provide further assistance as the client base continued to expand. Sharing the same personal likeability, dedication to success, and client-first mindset of Lisa and Sara, Alyse was an easy selection in the expansion efforts of the team. In the short time since joining the team, she has already begun to impress clients with her knowledge in guiding them through the decision making process.
