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 duo successfully sells 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 two additional licensed broker team members with background in sales & design and 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 Brooke 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 time of 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, 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 enjoying her new neighborhood in Logan Square, after moving from being a long time resident of Lincoln Park. When she is not working or at home snuggling with her three very large dogs, Brooke enjoys playing tennis, running, yoga and trying new restaurants throughout the city.

Having grown up in the Quad Cities, Jeff’s first visit to Chicago was going to a Chicago Bulls game with his dad at the old Chicago Stadium. “We were lucky enough to keep one of the old bricks as a souvenir." Years later, after attending Northern Illinois University and earning a degree in Geography and Urban Studies, Jeff immediately moved to Chicago.
Jeff began his real estate career working for a real estate developer in new construction sales and in August 2009, he decided to join the @properties family! “@properties has an incredible marketing team and is at the top of Chicago real estate so it was an easy choice.” Jeff knows that buying and selling a home is a major decision and he wants to help guide you through it to make the process as easy and fun as possible. His goal is to have you walk into a home and think: “This is it! I love this home.” Jeff’s biggest compliment is when his clients say to him: “I’ll totally refer you to all of my friends.”
“My two favorite things to do in my spare time are kayaking and taking in the Chicago food scene. Kayaking on the Chicago River is something that a lot of Chicagoans don’t know about. Being an architecture buff, the views are amazing, it’s actually affordable, and it’s an amazing workout without it feeling like one. I also love cooking, visiting the farmers markets, and trying new restaurants whether it’s down home BBQ to authentic Indian food, just about anything goes.”
Jeff recently earned his GREEN real estate designation from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), which he is a member of! He is also a member of the Chicago Association of Realtors (CAR), and the Illinois Association of Realtors (IAR).
You can contact him directly anytime by calling 309-269-3499.
