Grace Goro Kaage, Managing Director, Compass, North Central Region

by Chicago Agent

Number of years in real estate:

Describe your look:
No-nonsense. I like to wear what makes me feel capable, confident and ready to work.

What do you consider a “fashion don’t”?
I really don’t believe in “fashion don’ts.” Everyone expresses themselves differently, and I like to see us all empowered to be our own authentic selves, even when that means off-the-wall prints and out-there colors. If it’s true to you, I want to see it!

What item of clothing gets you the most compliments?
My dog wears winter booties, and those are hands-down the most complimented items in my house. I have a couple pairs of relaxed vegan leather pants from Aritzia that do all right, as well.

What is a fashion crime you have committed in the past?
In high school I layered fitted Abercrombie shorts under baggy ripped jeans. Burn after reading.

Where are your favorite clothing stores or brands?
Zara, Aritzia, Nordstrom, Lululemon, Bloomingdales, G/Fore.

What fashion accessory do you feel naked without?
My gold bar necklace. It was a gift from my husband on our wedding day.

What’s the most expensive or meaningful accessory or piece of clothing you’ve ever acquired? Do you still have it?
Strangely enough, it’s a New York Islanders hockey shirt. I’m not even an Islanders fan, but I threw it on from my husband’s closet before running out the door the day my daughter was born. Every time I see it, I’m reminded of her.

Does your style reflect your personal brand? If so, how?
Sure. I am half mom with a ponytail and yoga pants, and half career woman in heels with a Starbucks iced coffee. It’s a balancing act, and I have the wardrobe to match.

Black Hugo Boss pencil skirt; black Vince button-up blouse; Alexander McQueen embossed leather brass knuckle clutch; Alexander McQueen punk stud pointed toe pump in green; Hermes bracelet
