Brooke came to join @properties in 2007 from another small residential real estate brokerage company in Chicago. As part of that change she also partnered up with fellow Top Producer, Robin Miner. This super star duo’s partnership has been going strong for 11 years and they have consistently been recognized as the top 1% of agents in the Chicagoland area.  This duo successfully sells between $30-$40 million each year in real estate as a result of their hard work, client dedication, vast market knowledge and strong referral base. Make no mistake, this large success does not come without a team of help behind the scenes. With two additional licensed broker team members with background in sales & design and a licensed assistant (longest running in the city!), every transaction is ensured to run with the utmost efficiency to assure our clients they will get top notch personalized service throughout the entire transaction.

While majoring in accounting at DePaul University and prior to selling real estate, Brooke invested 8 years working for one of Chicago’s top real estate attorneys. During this time Brooke gained an insight into the needs and concerns of both buyers and sellers and learned of client’s desire for an advisor and advocate. Her ability to understand contract terms and the timing of each contingency helps her to effectively educate and guide her clients to make the best informed decision when they have found the home of their dreams.

In today’s world instant information and response time are super important. Brooke prides herself at always being available to clients, regardless of time of time. Her clients would vouch for telling you she is hypersensitive to replying to emails, as she wants every client to feel like they are always her only priority.

In addition, believes it is important to provide her clients with the best and most highly recommended resources (lender, inspector, attorney, contractors, movers & more) to ensure a smooth and successful transaction, which again makes her of a great value to her clients as an advocate and advisor.

Brooke grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago and is currently enjoying her new neighborhood in Logan Square, after moving from being a long time resident of Lincoln Park. When she is not working or at home snuggling with her three very large dogs, Brooke enjoys playing tennis, running, yoga and trying new restaurants throughout the city.

Clients are saying:

"In a word, indispensable. Brooke is everything and more you need from a realtor: smart, knowledgeable, discerning, proactive and not to be forgotten - fun. In a pool full of plenty of phonies, she is a consummate professional and it’s why we’ve hired her and her team for all of our real estate transactions in Chicago. Brooke not only knows the market well, but she has an unparalleled level of knowledge about home construction. She is doggedly thorough with inspections and she’s always, “got a guy,” to meet any needs. Even after our purchase we frequently reach out for suggestions and recommendations for vendors. For anyone looking to buy or sell their home I cannot make a more stronger recommendation. This woman works hard for the money!! Leslie | Lincoln Park"

"Brooke was a phenomenal realtor to work with as I bought my very first home! She very quickly helped calm my nerves by being so knowledgeable about the Chicago real estate market and approachable & responsive. I absolutely trusted her advice and pros/cons of different units we saw, and I felt comfortable asking her millions of questions, even after the sale had closed. She's really well-regarded in the industry, too - when I contacted an AC maintenance guy she referred for an emergency repair, his response was "Oh you know Brooke? I'll be there right away!" :) Annie | Wicker Park"

"Brooke and her team are absolutely amazing. We sold a Chicago property while living in Colorado. Brooke and Rachel managed the process of getting the property ready for sale and then got us a full price cash offer before the property was actually on the market. Her communication with us was timely and complete, we never waited long for a full answer to any question we had. And we were kept up to date at all times. Brooke’s knowledge of the local market helped us know what cost effective updates needed to be made to the property and then Brooke managed the process of getting the updates completed and staging done. Most importantly to us Brooke was incredibly kind. We needed to sell our property because of a sudden death in our family and Brooke was very compassionate, she made a tough situation easier. We wish we could clone her so if we needed a realtor in Colorado we could use Brooke, Rachel and the whole team. Tammi | Andersonville"

"I honestly can't say enough good things about our home-buying journey with Brooke. I NEVER write reviews, but I had to write this because I feel she is an exceptionally great real estate professional and overall human being. She made what can seem like an overwhelming and complicated experience feel smooth and enjoyable...even dealing with what was, at times, a difficult seller. My husband and I felt CRAZY lucky that we happened to stumble upon Brooke at an open house and that she became our agent and friend that helped us find our dream condo! You literally will not find a better person to help you buy or sell your home! Mara | Hyde Park"

"Brooke was amazing to work with. We had some up and down experiences with other agents when selling our place and Brooke provided excellent guidance and expectations given our situation. Anyone selling in the Chicago condo market would benefit from her knowledge of the market and expertise. Jeff | Old Town"
