“After we won best website last year, I didn’t want to be content with past victories. So we scrapped the whole thing, and redid it. We want to keep a fresh look. Technology is always changing and we have to continue to change to stay ahead. There are so many amazing agent sites out there. For Chicago Agent to acknowledge us as one of the best is truly an honor and something we are very proud of. We are always trying to innovate, so for them to recognize our efforts is very much appreciated.”
