Janice Corley and Cynthia Bauer have partnered to open RE/MAX Premier Properties in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. The pair are former Sotheby’s and RE/MAX affiliates; they are returning to RE/MAX to open a new office as broker/owners.
“We could have chosen to go with any franchise,” Bauer said. “But we chose RE/MAX for a reason. Janice and I had a conversation. We decided that we were both doing our best and things were going their best when we were with RE/MAX. So we decided that it was time to return to RE/MAX.”
Corley has been involved in Chicago’s luxury homes sector as a recruiter, producer and manager. She owned a Chicago RE/MAX office from 2000 to 2004 and in 2001, her office received the “Top Office, Closed Transactions award.” Bauer has been regarded as a top producer in the South Loop for the past 14 years and intends to expand that market, according to a press release from RE/MAX.
Corley and Bauer are also interested in RE/MAX’s international reach. “Sellers in top Chicago neighborhoods such as the Gold Coast want to advertise their properties not just in the city and suburbs, but across the globe. RE/MAX has perfected that,” Corley said.
The pair feels that opening a new branch in Chicago’s Gold Coast is the right action to take to see a lot of success for the future. “The resources we have with RE/MAX are amazing,” Corley said. “RE/MAX has technology and programs that I’ve never seen with any of the other real estate brands with which I’ve been affiliated.”
