Thaddeus Wong, co-founder of Chicago real estate firm @properties, recently received the 2012 Damen Award from Loyola University Chicago’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies.
Named after Loyola University Chicago’s founder, Arnold Damen, S.J., the award recognizes outstanding professional achievement, leadership in the community, and service to others. Loyola University Chicago presents the award annually to one alumnus from each of its schools and colleges.
Wong graduated from Loyola in 1996 and began his real estate career that same year. He quickly established himself as one of the most successful brokers in Chicago, earning four consecutive Golden Eagle Awards from the Chicago Association of REALTORS®. In 2000, he and his business partner, Michael Golden, co-founded @properties. Since then, the company has grown into the largest real estate brokerage firm in Chicago and the No. 2 broker on the North Shore. Currently, the firm is ranked 30th on the REAL Trends 500 list of largest real estate companies in the U.S.
