"Buying or selling a home can be a really stressful time in a person's life.  I enjoy making the process easier for my clients and getting to know them along the way."

With over 16 year's experience as a realtor in northern Chicago, Sonia Madden has earned a reputation as a client centered realtor committed to helping make dreams of home ownership come true.  Her energy and optimism together with her years of prior experience as an attorney, make her a valuable ally for those wishing to purchase or sell a home, no matter how difficult the market or complex the negotiation.

Sonia truly enjoys representing realty clients.  In fact, her desire to form strong connections with individuals and families on a daily basis motivated her to move from the impersonal world of commercial litigation to real estate.  As a small business owner, she knows first hand the stresses that come with major financial and lifestyle decisions; that knowledge allows her to make the real estate process as enjoyable and stress free as possible for her clients.

Honored as a highly effective agent from the very start of her career, Sonia consistently ranks in the top 3% of her colleagues.  When working with buyers and sellers, Sonia focuses on the north end of Chicago, including Gold Coast, Old Town, Streeterville, Lincoln Park, Lakeview, North Center, Roscoe Village, Lincoln Square, Ravenswood and Andersonville.  She has helped buyers move to North Shore locations such as Winnetka, Kenilworth, Wilmette and Evanston, while also helping suburban residents make the move downtown.  Born and raised in Winnetka, and having lived for many years in Chicago, Sonia's understanding of both the city and North Shore market gives her a unique perspective as a guide for her clients and an advocate for their needs.

Sonia has been a member of the ChicagoHome Brokerage Network at @properties for more than 6 years and has worked with David A. Baran for nearly two decades.  Her access to the experience and expertise represented by David and the @properties team gives her clients enormous advantage as they embark on home buying and selling.  Additionally, Sonia's clients gain the edge from David's nuanced and compelling online marketing, unmatched by anyone else.

With her years of experience, Sonia understands that buying or selling a home is not just a financial change: It's an emotional commitment.  Sonia more than matches that commitment, deriving true satisfaction from her client's happiness throughout their work together.  Knowledgeable and professional, Sonia exercises honesty and integrity in her dealings while making the entire process enjoyable.

If my client needs something right now, then I™m on it; I™m proactive and won™t stop until I find a solution.

As a licensed agent since 2012, I have been around real estate my entire life. My grandfather and uncle are active real estate investors and developers. Additionally, my father worked in the real estate and homebuilding industries for years. Real estate runs in the family, which made my career a natural fit.

With every search, I strive to make the experience fun. I enjoy witnessing the progression of the deal from start to finish and appreciate the opportunity to help people find a place to call home.

Before real estate, I spent nearly a decade in restaurant and hotel management. This experience helped shape me as an agent and taught me the nuances of customer service. I understand the importance of patience, as well as the necessity of strong communication and honest conversation.  

I have lived in the Chicagoland area for much of my life, including the city, Northwest Suburbs and the North Shore. Due to my knowledge of the city and its surrounding areas, I can assist clients when looking to buy or sell a home in the city of Chicago and the Chicagoland areas.

When it comes to real estate, I have experience with a variety of different transactions, including commercial and investment properties. I describe my style as adaptive and will take cues from my clients on how they™d like to proceed. Honesty and integrity are the most important aspects of my approach, in addition to only listening to what my clients need.

I joined ChicagoHome Brokerage Network in 2013 and appreciated having a resource like David Baran available when necessary. I enjoy discussing ideas with my fellow team members and sometimes will partner with others to help make sure deals get closed. I feel that it is most important to make sure that my clients are well taken care of. If there is another agent that can aid in supporting my clients, I will gladly seek their expertise. 

More about me: Family is a top priority for me. I am a bit of a foodie, a lover of Chicago sports teams and I enjoy spending my free time hanging out with friends, family, and my beautiful fianc©e.

I have always had a love and appreciation for homes and design.  I love looking at homes and lay outs in different areas of the city and suburbs, and noticing the changes in styles, finishes from neighborhood to neighborhood.  Each home is unique and I work hard to find the right home for each of my clients.  Real Estate is a passion of mine and I work hard to convey that while working with and for my clients.

I grew up in the Western suburbs and I've been in the city for the last several years, so I'm familiar with both worlds and enjoy properties throughout Chicagoland and Ilinois.

I hope to meet you soon and work together to find your next home!
