Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is pleased to announce two additions to their team: Gracik Makinney Real Estate Group, consisting of partners Maria Gracik and Tom Makinney, Gina Brigham and Mary Riva, will be joining their Elmhurst office; and Katia Craig has joined their Edgebrook office.


Gracik Makinney Group (Mary Riva, Gina Brigham, Maria Gracik and Tom Makinney) will be joining the Coldwell Banker Elmhurst office.

Gracik Makinney Group sold over 370 homes and totaled over $190 million in sales since 2006. They recently placed in the top 10 agents of DuPage County for the second year in a row, and grew their business by over 30 percent.

“I am thrilled to welcome Gracik Makinney Real Estate Group to the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage family,” Nancy Thunberg, manager of the Coldwell Banker Elmhurst office, said. “Their in-depth knowledge of the local community, proven track record of success and commitment to their clients make them valuable assets to our team.”

Gracik and Makinney joined forces in 2009. Prior to this, the two provided steep competition for each other for years, constantly challenging the other to the top spot.

“Joining Coldwell Banker was a clear choice for us,” Gracik and Maloney said. “We are excited to join a company with such an excellent reputation and that will provide us with the support and tools necessary to better serve our clients and grow our business.”

Prior to Coldwell Banker, Craig worked as a real estate consultant at Prudential Rubloff. She received a B.A. in Psychology and Early Childhood Education, and she has certificates in Fine Home Sales and Quality Service.
