Chicago real estate professional Kate Stephens has the ideal combination of area expertise, tenacity and accessibility that make her a sought-after partner for buyers, sellers and investors. Confident and competent, she's made a name for herself by winning in competitive, multiple-bid situations and offering incredible skill at pricing homes aggressively.

Raised by an agent mother and real estate attorney father, real estate is practically in Kate's DNA.
