The Alice Chin Team to help Compass establish Naperville office
As of today, The Alice Chin Team has officially moved from Keller Williams Realty Infinity to Compass. They’ll be helping the firm establish a foothold in Naperville.
“My team and I are very excited to be joining Compass as a founding team at their new location in Naperville,” Chin said in an email to Chicago Agent magazine. “Our team’s mission is to create the perfect real estate experience for each and every client. We believe that this perfectly aligns with Compass’ mission to help everyone find their place in the world.”
Naperville is already an area of specialty for the team leader. Chin has been a resident in the Naperville area since 1991, and over her 15 years in real estate, has more than 1,100 transactions and $350 million in sales under her belt. The six-person team will grow to seven at the new office, as a new team member will join them at Compass Naperville.
Compass welcomes Malone Residential
Just prior to the Naperville announcement, Compass also brought on Malone Residential, a high-performing team from @properties. According to Compass, team leader Kathleen Malone was the No. 1 agent at @properties’ Bucktown office, with $50 million in transaction volume last year.
The team has become a bit smaller at Compass. Malone will continue to lead the group as principle, and she will bring over agents Kat Cordell, Maureen Glynn, Zach Kennedy and Meg Soden. Former team members Mary Beth Malone, Jacqueline Brady, Maureen Dine Glynn, Chris Glendening, and Megan Hughes will not be making the move.
Jim Ziltz returns to Berkshire Hathaway
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago announced yesterday that one of its own will be returning to the firm. Jim Ziltz will be leaving Compass and moving over to BHHS’s Lincoln Park Clybourn office.
“I am really excited to welcome Jim back to our company. He is a gifted relationship builder and we’ve always appreciated his extensive market and industry knowledge,” Mark Pasquesi, president of brokerage for the firm, said in a press release. “He will be a considerable asset not only to the Lincoln Park Clybourn office, but the entire company.”
Ziltz previously spent just under a decade working out of Berkshire Hathaway’s Wheaton and Michigan Avenue offices. “Choosing a firm is like choosing your home; you want somewhere that supports you, makes you feel comfortable and fosters your growth,” said Ziltz. “I’m happy to say Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago is my forever home away from home.”
