Katie Himmel



With combined professional experience in real estate, marketing, customer service, and interior design — you are set to have an exceptional experience in your real estate matters when you hire Katie. She strives to exceed even the highest expectations and loves delivering great news to her clients. 

Her strategy for success begins with listening (truly listening), asking hard questions, and taking the time to understand your needs, wants, and goals to provide the best guidance to get you there. 

Katie is backed by the best real estate attorneys, title companies, and lenders to ensure that every element of your process goes smoothly.

She is a tireless and creative problem solver, skillful negotiator, and exceptionally organized leader who keeps all parties on track without missing a beat. 

Katie moved to Chicago from downstate Illinois to get her bachelor's degree in design. She fell in love with the city — the people, the architecture, the history, the grit. She loves our community and finds joy in donating to a local nonprofit as part of every real estate closing. 

Katie has lived all over this city, from the South Loop to Rogers Park, in her 16 years here. With 12 of those years spent in Wicker Park and Bucktown. She now calls Old Irving Park home with her two boys and rescue rat terrier mix. With any free time, she paints, tinkers with DIY projects, cooks, writes, and adds to her ever-growing spoon collection.​
