@properties opening a new office in Winnetka with 50 agents!

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on April 24, 2010

@Properties follows customers as they head north

Mary Ellen Podmolik Local SceneApril 23, 2010

Ten years after co-founding @Properties in Chicago, Michael Golden and Thaddeus Wong are firming their commitment to the North Shore with a second office.

Last week, the duo bought a building along Green Bay Road in Winnetka near the Indian Hill Metra station and they plan to open an office there in August with 50 agents. That follows @Properties’ first step in suburbia last summer when it opened an Evanston office now staffed by 75 agents. And if all goes according to plan, they want a Highland Park office in 2011.

Moving into a north suburban market that is largely dominated by Coldwell Banker Residential is a challenge they say they’re up to, particularly because the Evanston office has done better than expected.

In one respect, @Properties is growing up with its client base. The firm made its mark selling condos and new developments within the city and a decade later, some of those clients have married, started families and begun moving to the suburbs.

Following customers as they move north, rather than in another direction, is a bit easier because of the consistent demographics of the North Shore. “We felt like we can get a lot of traction here quickly,” Golden said, with Wong adding “This is the most natural progression for us. It’s growth during a period of time when everyone tells you you shouldn’t be growing. There’s nothing that can be forced right now.”

Growing organically, rather than through acquisition in an industry where consolidation continues, will remain @Properties’ strategy, the pair agree. “When you buy a company, the agents that come with that company don’t have a choice. [Then] you’ve got agents who have changed their business card and the agents don’t love that,” Wong noted.

Last year, @Properties’ sales volume totaled $1.78 billion with 859 agents, compared with $1.88 billion and 738 agents at year-end 2008. Based on data reported to Midwest Real Estate Data LLC, Broker Metrics gave @Properties a leading 12.48 percent market share within Chicago last year….

SOLD – 4Bed/2Bath Single Family Home at a Bargain Price!

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on March 30, 2010

Earlier this week, my buyer closed on this 4Bed/2Bath single family home located at 3506 W. Huron Street in Chicago’s West Side for a great price of $15,500, around 80% below asking price!  Now that’s what I call a deal.  Granted, the home needs work and the neighborhood isn’t ideal for most people, but it’s ideal for smart buyers who can fix it up, rent it out, and sell it for a profit at a later date.  Check out some photos of the home.  Unfortunately, there aren’t any inside photos, just outside.
