Michael Golden: Realtor of the Year

Congratulations to @properties co-founder, Michael (Mike) Golden, who received the REALTOR of the Year Award from the Chicago Association of REALTORS.

Mike’s outstanding contributions to the industry landed him this recognition. When acknowledged at last night’s CAR Inaugural Gala, Mike remarked that he shares the award with all REALTORS and especially his business partner, Thaddeus Wong.

“I share this award with my partner, Thaddeus Wong, as well as all of the members of the association who, through hard work and innovation, have kept their businesses moving forward despite the incredible challenges in today’s real estate market,” Mike said.

Mike, a past president of the Chicago Association of REALTORS® (2007-2008), was recognized for his outstanding contributions to the industry. In particular, his vision and tenacity have enabled @properties to expand and thrive during a tumultuous time for the nation’s housing and financial markets.

According to the association, the award is the industry’s highest and most coveted honor. In a statement, the association said, “Mike strives to improve client service and position his fellow REALTORS® as the voice of real estate in Chicago. His analytical abilities and entrepreneurial spirit have made @properties one of the city’s top sellers of residential real estate.”

Behind Mike and Thad, Chicago-based @properties accomplished a number of notable achievements over the past year, including opening new offices in Winnetka and Lake Forest; building on its No. 1 market share in the city; surpassing 1,000 agents; and completing sales at a number of Chicago condominium developments including R+D 659, SoNo and Elysian Private Residences.
