EXIT Strategy Realty
Danny Lewis got his start in real estate working with first-time homebuyers. Six years later, Lewis is working as a listing agent, serving investors, relocations and luxury clients. In 2016, he closed $19.4 million in sales. His targeted goal of 2016 was to become the No. 1 agent at his firm, EXIT Strategy Realty, and in addition to achieving that goal, he also ranked as his company’s top agent for the entire Midwest region.
Lewis began his career in advertising and later moved to public relations; both were learning experiences that he says helped him segue into the real estate profession. “Advertising taught me how to brand myself and how to attract attention,” he says. “Public relations taught me how to position myself in the public eye and also how to be organized and self-sufficient.”
Lewis has been a trailblazer since he embarked on a career in the real estate industry. He was named Rookie of the Year at his first real estate job, was featured in a Chicago Association of Realtors magazine article as a “blazing newcomer” and he has been named the top real estate agent in the entire state of Illinois for EXIT Strategy Realty for the past three years. In the Chicagoland market, he works with clients from many neighborhoods, from Lincoln Park to Andersonville and South Loop to Edgewater.
Lewis credits most of his success to his dedication. “I think about real estate day and night, when I wake up and when I go to sleep,” he says. “Making sure that my clients get the best deal possible and are happy and satisfied is my number one priority.” When he’s not busy closing deals, Lewis is playing golf, watching the Chicago Bulls as a season ticket holder or traveling the world. This past year he visited Argentina and Brazil, and he says he returned with renewed focus and determination.
