Art and Science and Passion= Results
A unique combination of creative and analytical abilities combined with an enthusiastic energy is the core of Heidi Anderson and her team’s success at @properties.
Preparing a property for sale and presenting it in the most beautiful package is an absolute art form.
Heidi Anderson’s extensive design background began while training at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. She followed this education with years of experience as a corporate textile designer and buyer for Neiman Marcus. She then worked as a real estate developer, designer and project manager on her own business projects including a lakefront resort and restaurant, as well as remodeling projects and new construction here in Chicago. 
From staging design, to help accomplishing inspection items with her resources, to remodeling advice, Heidi’s clients see the added value to her creative talent and experience. Before a listing agreement is signed, her team has developed a plan to prepare the property itself, and all of the marketing materials including expert photography and visually stunning print and web advertising. Heidi believes the difference is always in the details, and each one is meticulously cared for in the effort to accomplish the goal.
Effective positioning of a property in the market, and negotiating transactions is an absolute science.
Heidi Anderson’s achieved her formal business education with an B.S. degree from Purdue University followed by an M.B.A concentrated in Real Estate Investment and Finance from DePaul University.
By effectively analyzing current market conditions and identifying trends and then creating a strategic framework based on her client’s individual goals, Heidi effectively positions the property at the right time for the right price. The science behind acquiring and selling the biggest investment most people will ever make is serious business.  Her extensive experience negotiating these transactions has been critical to her client’s success. Heidi views her role as that of a long term investment advisor for the real estate portion of her client’s portfolio.
Preparing and positioning a property in the market is one thing, and presenting it properly is an entirely different ballgame. Heidi’s enthusiasm and positive energy create excitement and build rapport with all parties in the transaction. The psychological component of being passionate about what you are selling cannot be measured, and it is often the make or break attribute in real estate transactions.
“Eventually, I think Chicago will be the most beautiful great city left in the world.”

Heidi is equally as passionate about her love of all things Chicago. Her roots here run deep, growing up as a Midwest farmer’s daughter in Elgin, and living in 5 different Chicago neighborhoods since 1998. Much of Heidi’s free time is spent exploring all the corners of this amazing city. Her clients love to utilize her as a resource for great restaurant and event recommendations.
This winning combination speaks for itself in results of over $40M of real estate sold.  Heidi has been recognized as being in the Top 10% of real estate agents in Chicago every year since 2003.
Most telling is fact that nearly all of her business is based on referrals from past clients. Testimonials from both her clients and other agents speak for themselves…

Clients are saying:

"Heidi is the ultimate real estate professional - an excellent communicator with exceptional follow through and expert real estate knowledge. The negotiation and closing process went smoothly because Heidi knew what information we needed and the right questions to ask. There is no one better in Chicago.- Chad"

"Even before we listed out house, as we were still in the 'contemplation' stage, Heidi went right to work for us giving us a very fair and strategic view on what we would be looking at with regards to market time, number of showings and price point. The whole process was fairly simple, with the only complications coming from buyers requests that were outside of anything Heidi or we could have anticipated. And even when those arose, Heidi was able to adapt our strategy seamlessly. We were able to close our home within 60 days of listing, which was better than we anticipated at a price point that was right within what we originally had in mind. We are very grateful for Heidi's service, she excelled in her communication, continually managed the buyer's relationship well, and in general was a pleasure to work with."
