Chicago-based brokerage Dream Town Realty added five new agents to its residential sales team in April.
Martin Lord, Wendy Lee, Syd Hill, Luis Ramos and Aaron Vanderbilt will be working under Dream Town as they will be responsible for providing buying and selling services to the company’s clientele in the Chicagoland area. Between the five agents, all aspects of the market will be handled with expert knowledge of the subject, according to a press release from Dream Town Realty. These aspects of the market include residential sales, new construction developments, investment properties, short sales and leasing.
Martin Lord began working with Dream Town on April 1st. Lord has been involved with real estate for over ten years and has a background in real estate development. Lord has a record of successful real estate transactions that began shortly after his own first home purchase, according to the press release. “The reason I became a Realtor in the first place is because of my own experience when I bought my own place. That was ten years ago, since then I’ve sold hundreds of properties for sellers and worked with hundreds of buyers,” said Lord. Lord emphasized that he enjoys working with first-time buyers and people that are relocating to Chicago from the suburbs, other cities or even around the world, according to the press release.
Wendy Lee is an experienced Realtor whose clientele ranges from first-time home buyers and sellers to veteran investors and rentals, according to the press release. Lee, a Chicago native, has nine years of experience in real estate with a concentration in both Chicago’s North and South markets. She prides herself on being able to assist clients beyond her own expertise. “My services are not limited to what I personally can offer,” said Lee. “It’s my job to ensure a smooth, trouble-free process in every aspect of the transaction, not just the part that’s under my control. Beyond the property search, contract negotiation or listing campaign I put my clients in touch with whomever they need—lender, inspector, attorney, contractor, painter, landscaper—you name it.”
Syd Hill was added to Dream Town’s residential sales team after being attracted to the company’s online success. Hill spent over 15 years planning affordable and market rate housing developments, working with investors to implement asset management procedures and integrating sustainable solutions in residential and commercial projects before working with Dream Town. “Over the last decade and a half I have dealt with all sides of the Chicago housing market,” said Hill. “The knowledge, insight and appreciation I’ve gained from that experience have proven a huge advantage in how I assist my buying and selling clients now.”
Luis Ramos joined the company in the middle of April. Ramos speaks two languages and commented, “Being bilingual in Spanish and English, I can assist clients who might otherwise be intimidated by the language barrier when buying or selling a home.” After earning a degree in architecture, his educational background produces an additional benefit to clients who have questions about the structural integrity of a home, feasibility of remodeling an existing space or general inquiries about a property’s architectural genre, according to the press release.
Aaron Vanderbilt has been a Realtor for nine years and received his broker’s license in 2006, according to the press release. Vanderbilt, a Chicago native, possesses a lot of information on the city’s neighborhoods. He is involved in residential and commercial sales, and invests in real estate on his own time. “Real estate isn’t just my business, it’s also my personal interest,” said Vanderbilt. “That passion is carried over to my clients’ interests, which are always my priority. I’m committed to educating my clients and providing them with tools that they can use in future real estate endeavors.”
