Sara Brondyke joined @properties as an IL licensed Real Estate Broker in 2012. She partnered with Top Producer, Lisa McMillan forming a team within the company: the My Chicago Properties Group. "As a small team, we’re able to consistently assist and support each other while providing individual attention and service to our own clients”, she says. @properties recently introduced an exclusive (internal) Agent App which allows 1200+ brokers to post upcoming property listings… even before they officially come on the market. "With the #1 market share in Chicago, this is a strong advantage to both buyers AND sellers when searching for, or marketing a home".
Her passion for residential real estate stems from an education/background in Interior Design. In 2009 she interned for celebrity designer, Nate Berkus and was inspired by his work and philosophies. "Nate always says that your home should tell the story of who you are. And I believe that the first step is choosing the right space." She enjoys sharing her design knowledge with clients, whether it’s staging a home to sell or helping a buyer visualize their style in a new space.
Sara loves exploring the unique neighborhoods Chicago has to offer, especially when it involves trying new restaurants. “One of my favorites will always be Au Cheval in the West Loop… even if it means waiting 2 hours for a cheeseburger”, she says. “If you’ve been there, you understand.”
- Sara is a member of the Chicago Association of REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS®.

"Sara is an exceptional broker. She carries herself with high professionalism and class. She quickly built a strong rapport with my Fiancée and I with her welcoming personality. Sara demonstrated her deep understanding of our needs by showing us properties which were aligned to our interests and preferences. It was quite evident Sara knew the neighborhood and market in which we were looking. Sara provided us with honest advice, which helped us better understand the decisions we were making. Throughout our entire time working with Sara, she was punctual and responsive to all forms of communication. Sara made us feel like we were her only clients and provided us her upmost attention. I highly recommend anyone using Sara as their broker as she goes above and beyond expectations."
"First-time home buyers. Sara was incredibly attentive. Assessed our needs and answered many questions throughout the process. When unable to answer a question, Sara sought out assistance from her network of real estate professionals. Easy going and fun, Sara made the process enjoyable. During tense negotiating moments, she updated us frequently and let us know which issues were common and which we needed to focus on the get the deal done. Highly recommended."
"It was a pleasure to work with Sara. She helped with answers to questions and got us access to our future home when needed. I would recommend her to any of our friends in need of a broker."
"Sara was an incredible help when I was moving downtown Chicago two years ago. I have never lived in Chicago and at that point I was residing more than 4 hours away, and could not come to check any properties on a short notice. Sara worked around my schedule, arranging weekend's visits and keeping me updated on latest openings. On several occasions when a great place came up, she walked through with her iPad so that I could see the place for myself using FaceTime even though I was living in a different state. I was only able to visit Chicago two weekends prior to my move, and she got everything prepared over email and phone, and once we found the place she was the one who set up all final meetings. I love my place, it is a great location and I have had absolutely zero problems all two years that I have been here. I have nothing but the highest recommendation for her."
