Chicago-based Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has announced the appointment of Realtor Bob Ott as managing broker for its Libertyville and Buffalo Grove offices, according to an issued press release.
Ott will bring over 25 years of industry experience as he oversees the production for both offices, which serves cities like Arlington Heights, Bartlett, Antioch, Grayslake and Gurnee, among others in Chicago’s northwest suburbs.
Ott’s Return to Coldwell Banker
Ott is no stranger to the Coldwell Banker family. He began his real estate career in Coldwell Banker’s Vernon Hills office in 1984, and for the next 10 years managed the office, as well as its Mundelein location. After his years at Coldwell Banker, Ott then formed his real estate company in 1995.
After over 10 years on his own, Ott returned to Coldwell Banker in March 2007 and merged his office with its Libertyville branch. In June 2008, Ott assumed a managing broker position again with the brand, overseeing the sales team in Libertyville.
Throughout the span of his career, Ott has developed a specialty in residential properties, specifically new construction and re-sales.
A ‘Hands-On’ Manager
Jeff Polanzi, regional vice president of the Northwest Region for Coldwell Banker, explained that Ott’s success and overall work ethic in Libertyville made him the perfect fit to oversee its Buffalo Grove location.
“As a self-desribed ‘hands on’ manager, [Ott] is committed to providing his combined offices of agents a strong atmosphere and supportive work environment in order for each of them to grow their business and achieve results,” said Polanzi.
