In her new office, Rodriguez will specialize in the city and west suburbs where she will help buyers and sellers to invest in both residential and commercial properties.
“We are thrilled to have Maria join RE/MAX In The Village,” said Erika Villegas, managing broker and co-owner of the office, said in a press release. “Her expertise and knowledge of Chicagoland’s housing trends are unmatched. She is an excellent addition to our growing team.”

New CEO of CHA
Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced last week that she’d be nominating Tracey Scott to serve as the CEO of the Chicago Housing Authority. Scott has spent the last 25 years working on expanding low-income housing access across the country, and currently serves as the CEO for the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority.
“Tracey’s breadth of experience and dedication for improving public housing make her a perfect fit to lead the Chicago Housing Authority as we embark on our ambitious agenda to transform our city’s economic landscape,” said Mayor Lightfoot. “Stable housing is a first step toward creating opportunity and building a future for Chicago’s communities, and I look forward to working closely with Tracey and the team at CHA to provide access to safe, affordable housing for all our residents.”
Tracey Scott’s nomination must be approved by the CHA Board of Commissioners, which is expected to consider her nomination at its March 17 meeting.
