About Me

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 partnership allows them successfully sell 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 four additional licensed broker team members with background in contract law, sales & design plus 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 she 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 the 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, she 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 an 8 year resident of Logan Square. When she is not working or at home snuggling with her 4 dogs (wowza!), Brooke enjoys playing tennis, running, yoga, trying new restaurants throughout the city & traveling during the slow season. 

Brooke has been a consistent Chicago Association of Realtors Top 1% Producer and recognized as one of @properties Top 100 agents (out of 2000+). She is incredibly passionate and energetic about her job, which leads to long lasting relationships with and referrals from her clients. 

Clients are saying:

"Brooke is simply amazing. She truly goes above and beyond for her clients. We first met Brooke when we moved to Chicago and she helped us find a rental condo. She gave us a fantastic overview of all the different neighborhoods and helped us narrow down our search. A year later when we were ready to buy our first house Brooke’s knowledge of the market and the process was invaluable. She helped us negotiate around some tricky items on the inspection report with some difficult sellers. Brooke’s services don’t stop at closing. She has an army of excellent contractors that she is always willing to share. Before making renovations on our house we would always consult Brooke who would give us feedback on how the renovations would affect the value of our house and also tips for including items that buyers find desirable. Six years later when we were ready to sell our home, Brooke was the only call we made. Her advice on pricing was spot-on. Brooke and her team were involved in every step of the selling process – in addition to giving pricing advice and negotiating offers, they helped declutter our house, brought in staging items, arranged for professional pictures to be taken and gave practical tips to make our house show ready. Brooke and her team made a super stressful process of buying and selling a house very smooth. Beth | Lincoln Park"
