Working with the best in the business is the only choice in real estate today. I have aligned with @properties, the #1 independent brokerage in Illinois and #1 real estate firm in Chicago.

 

@properties shares my commitment to offering the most comprehensive and professional marketing, expert market knowledge, and sophisticated technology, supporting the highest standards of service and representation you expect and deserve.

Gia joined @properties in January of 2014, and is an agent on one of the newest top producing teams, Team Sachs, who accomplished over 32 Million in sales volume for 2015, and was named a Top Producer Team 2015 by the Chicago Association of Realtors. 

Some of Gia's accomplishments in the past years have been related to her knowledge on the investor side of real estate.  In October 2011, she was recognized in the Illinois Realtor Magazine in an interview seen here: http://www.illinoisrealtor.org/magazine/Oct11_investment. Gia is known for giving great advice on real estate investment, and has a ton of experience in this field. From physically driving her clients to the auctions, to placing bids on prospective homes, Gia is a full service agent. 

Gia grew up in the western suburb, Glen Ellyn. She attended St. Francis College Prepatory in Wheaton, and was a dedicated competitive Jr. USTA tennis player for 12 years. Gia also enjoys running, and has competed in the Chicago Marathon, and many other local Chicago races. Another field that Gia is very passionate about is music, she is a classically trained pianist, and has had the opportunity to spend a few of her past years in a couple of Chicago local bands. If there is a good concert coming up, there is a pretty good chance that you might see her there. 

Between her knowledge of the western suburbs AND Chicago market, her competitive nature, and passion for life, she is a one of a kind realtor who LOVES to share her expertise with clients. If you have the chance to experience Gia's services you will get to see first hand what her capabilities are all about. She believes when treating her clients and peers with the upmost respect, and having fun, this allows relationships to build, flourish, and acheive a smooth transaction. With nearly 10 years of real estate and over 200 closed transactions under her belt, there is no doubt that she is considered a seasoned agent that you will want on your side during negotiations. 

"Gia makes house hunting fun. Not only is she energetic and engaging, but she really listens to what the buyer wants. My wife and I were all over the map with what we thought we needed in our new home, but after touring several properties with Gia she was able to make observations on what we kept discussing in the homes and helped us to identify what was really important to us. That helped us to truly pinpoint what we needed and find the perfect property. Gia's availability and responsiveness to her clients are off the charts."    -J.O.  "Gia was AWESOME! I spent months looking for a place. Gia was always super helpful and attentive. Her motivation to find me the perfect place was amazing. I ended up finding exactly what I wanted at a great price. I give Gia all the credit. Her work ethic and expertise made all the difference"        -D.B.

Julie’s client base is made up mostly of referrals from those who see the value in working with someone who will apply the highest level of care, commitment and professionalism to every aspect of the transaction - from first meeting to closing - proven by nearly 500 transactions to date. 

Julie completed a BA in Psychology from the University of Illinois.  Before Real Estate, Julie worked in Public Relations, Business Management and has proven to quickly connect with people with her communication and interpersonal skills.
