Weinberg Choi Realty, Inc.
Josh Weinberg and Tommy Choi, co-founders of Weinberg Choi Realty, Inc., have accomplished several business goals as a team. Part of their success has stemmed from seeking guidance and advice from a well-established board of directors and surrounding themselves with an invaluable support network.
“Our greatest business strength is the trust we have in each other,” says Choi, who serves on Chicago Association of Realtors’ Board of Directors (Weinberg serves on CAR’s Professional Development Advisory Group). “No matter what happens, at the end of the day we never compromise on our beliefs or morals. Our integrity and respect for our customers and values is what motivates us. Josh literally loses sleep if he thinks he can get a better deal
for his clients.”
The two embrace their competition and focus on bettering themselves, rather than simply being better than competitors. “We’ve found that when we help other brokers, our successes have been greater, and when we strive to be better than we were the day before, we’re always offering the best versions of ourselves to our clients,” Weinberg says.
The pair hopes to grow their team organically over the next few years while remaining a part of CAR’s top 1 percent production. They have also been fortunate enough to be featured on multiple episodes of HGTV’s “House Hunters” series. Yet, despite those successes and honors, their No. 1 goal is to be happy in what they do each day.
“This isn’t a career; it’s a passion,” Choi says. “My grandfather immigrated here in the ‘70s and taught me homeownership is a privilege that you work hard to accomplish. That value is something we both respect and believe in, and is the reason we are so passionate about what we do. Every time we help someone, we are protecting the privilege of homeownership.”
