The Move Smarter Team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago has opened a new office in west suburban Geneva.
The office at 321 Franklin St. is led by brokers Samantha Bauman and Raul Delgado.
“Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago is an incredible company, and Raul and I are proud to represent them in this expansion,” Bauman said in a news release. “I am honored to open this office in Geneva and serve the Tri-City-area that has become my home. I love the pleasant mingling that exists between the Batavia, Geneva and St. Charles communities and the plethora of activities that are available. We look forward to becoming immersed in the communities here and supporting them with our knowledge, commitment, drive and friendship.”
Bauman and Delgado became partners in 2021. That year, the team received the Chairman’s Circle Platinum Award, which placed them among the top 1% of brokers in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices national network.
The Geneva office will allow The Move Smarter Team to serve communities farther west of Wheaton, including Geneva, Batavia, St. Charles, West Chicago, North Aurora, Aurora, Sugar Grove and Elburn.
Bauman has been a broker with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Wheaton office for almost seven years and prior to that worked in the hospitality industry in catering and event planning for more than 10 years. Bauman has served on the board of the DuPage County Historical Museum Foundation and is a member of the Wheaton Chamber.
Previously, Delgado was general manager of Bon Appetit Management Company, which runs all the food operations for Wheaton College. He is an active member of the Wheaton Chamber and the Wheaton Lions Club.
“Samantha and I love the opportunities that the Tri-City-area presents,” Delgado said in the news release. “We both come from a hospitality background, so our drive to serve and work ethic are very strong. As everyone knows, real estate is a local business and we feel that to be successful in a community, you really must be part of it.”
