The best thing about a career in real estate is that you have the opportunity to make your client happy during two of the largest decisions in life “ where to call home and where to invest. I understand these are very meaningful to each buyer, seller, developer, and investor and will dedicate 110% to make that time a positive and fun experience for each of my clients.
Erika began her real estate career in one of the first @properties offices in 2003. Since then, Erika has had the opportunity to work in both the Chicago and Florida real estate markets. Through strategic agent partnerships in Chicago, she learned a service first approach with importance on unmatched customer service, premier marketing, and the power of understanding and executing the needs and values of each customer. In Florida, Erika managed a top branch office in the Tampa/Clearwater area through the highs and lows of the real estate cycles in the early 2000's. Erika now focuses on the LaGrange, Western Springs, Hinsdale, Clarendon Hills and Chicago markets with @properties, where the focus is on luxury new development, helping families and individuals find a place to call home, and showcasing some of the extraordinary architecture of Chicagoland's residential properties.
Erika graduated from the University of Illinois, with a BS in Business Administration and Marketing. Over the past few years, she has enjoyed a successful sales career both as owner of a medical consulting company and as a real estate entrepreneur. The combination of her passion for real estate, her business acumen, confident negotiation skills, and her enthusiastic nature make Erika a great professional resource for marketing the homes of sellers and finding the perfect new home for buyers.
During her free time, you will find Erika enjoying each phase of her children's lives, volunteering for the Ogden Avenue PTC and the VP of Fundraising, participating in the Rotary Club, running, snow skiing, traveling, enjoying a Cubs game, Illini game or concert, playing the piano, socializing with friends, and meeting new people.
Clients are saying:
"The service of @properties has been terrific. Within one day, I was able to find the ideal location and lease property at the right price and right location in the Chicago area. High quality real estate broker, fast and responsive follow up on any of my questions in the process. Highly recommend them. Erika G. was pleasure to work with."
"Knows the markets well. Very detailed focused. Great interpersonal skills"
"I know this is much later than anticipated; we got busy with moving in and the holidays. However, as promised, here are a few pictures of Ian trick-or-treating in the new neighborhood. :) All your efforts to close quickly paid off for him. Thanks again!"
"We couldn't have asked for a better realtor to deal with our incredibly specific wants/needs and our indecisiveness at the same time! As first time buyers, my boyfriend and I were new to every step of this process. and our relator, Erika Guest, was nothing but patient, understanding, and incredibly knowledgeable. Every question we had was answered, every step of the process explained, and not once did we find ourselves unsure of our decision to go with @properties. Not only did we grow to respect our realtor as a professional who is extremely efficient at her job, we grew to respect her as a friend. Heather and Erika were great to work with, and even though we LOVE our new house, we look forward to working with them again in the future."
"Erika worked very hard to make sure we saw homes that were relavent to our criteria. When we encountered issues, she was quick to resolve. Thanks!"
