With nearly two decades of experience helping buyers and sellers navigate the complexities of Chicago's city market, Katie Deeley knows the importance of listening rather than simply hearing when it comes to what matters most to them. Client testimonials laud her patience and honesty, the hallmarks of a broker who truly puts her clients first.
Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Katie is an Arizona State University alumna whose career began at Farm Bureau, where she sold life, health, and property casualty insurance. Her position required spending quality time with policyholders on their large working farms and ranches, which allowed her to build long-lasting relationships with clients who became like family. She relocated to Chicago in 1998, purchasing her first condominium two years later in the West Loop. The thrill of that experience and her talent for building client relationships inspired her to earn her real estate license soon thereafter.
Katie specializes in condominiums and single-family homes on Chicago's North side. Her personal experience as a resident of many of its neighborhoods well enables her to showcase what they offer. Her extensive collaboration with property developers inform her ability to assess the quality and caliber of construction. Clients appreciate this kind of in-depth knowledge as well as Katie's penchant to respond to questions and concerns regardless of the time of day or night.
Katie lives in East Lakeview and enjoys the city's rich cultural and social offerings with her husband and daughter. She serves as an officer on the board of directors for the House of the Good Shepherd, which offers a safe haven for women and children affected by domestic violence. In addition, she sits on the board of advisors of the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago and the advisory board of the Catholic Charities Housing Services.
Clients are saying:
"Katie is the absolute best. She listens to what her clients want and never pushes a sale. She is so knowledgeable and it was so comforting to purchase our first home with her, knowing she would ask the questions we didn't know to ask. I recommend her to anyone and everyone."
"Katie was an absolute consummate professional throughout the entire looking, buying and closing process! Her extensive knowledge of real estate in the city was incredibly helpful to me and made the process of "searching for the right fit for me" very positive. Katie's extensive network and contacts was an additional bonus in terms of navigating the available applicable properties.Additionally, I honestly don;t think I have ever worked with someone so efficient. I will use Katie in any future real estate endeavors and strongly recommend her to others....she's an incredible professional and as a general comment, a wonderful person."
"Katie has been my broker for four years now. She is excellent at what she does. I have bought my primary residence and rental properties through her. She is extremely honest, forthright and very professional. Most importantly, she does what she says she's going to do and she delivers. In a city full of agents, I couldn't imagine using anyone else. I am a small business owner and understand the power of yelp and this small review can't give her enough praise."

Simply put, If you're looking for someone who really cares about finding you a home and will guide through the details, call Katie. Before you know it, you'll be writing your own rave review."
