Jan Smith, a consistently recognized top producer on the Chicago real estate scene just celebrated 21 years in the industry. She began her career in marketing and advertising for Playboy Magazine. After her son, Patrick started school, Jan decided to give real estate a “whirl”, in the early days of Bucktown and Wicker Park. Luck was on her side and she secured her first sale during her first week on the job, and was instantly hooked. Seven years later, Jan made a leap of faith and opened her own boutique real estate firm, J A Smith Assoc Inc. In May, Jan merged her firm, with @properties and is thrilled with the decision. “It is an innovative, exciting organization to be a part of, providing every possible sales and marketing tool to their agents in this competitive environment. Today you will find Jan in all areas of the city, with an unrivaled breadth and depth of knowledge of the city’s many varied neighborhoods, selling everything from condos to castles. Jan’s motto for success is “always be mindful of what you sell your clients, and when it is time for them to make a move, you will have a great listing”. Her results speak for themselves as she has a 100 percent referral business and successfully closes nearly all of her listings. Jan absolutely loves what she does and her experience and professionalism is matched only by her enthusiasm.

Clients are saying:

"My wife and I found a property we really like, but it was a short sale. We had no experience with this type of purchase.The sellers were difficult, the property had some key challenges, and the entire process was long and tedious. Throughout, Pat Smith was composed and dedicated, offering great communication, advice and insight along the way. Through much tribulation, we finally bought the property we wanted, and without Pat it could not have been possible."

"Jan Smith's experience made a huge difference in the search for our new home.Jan saved us a great deal of time by understanding our needs and ultimately finding us an amazing place. Honest, direct and reliable! John"

"Patrick Smith demonstrates an exceptional knowledge of 'Chicago'. He knows not only the neighborhoods but also the story behind how they evolved and the relative trade-offs between them, such as proximity to main arterials, local zoning parameters, recent sales in the area, and how prices compare on a relative basis. Despite the fact that we toured 14 properties, Pat made it easy to make decisions, which is the criteria we value most in a realtor!"
