Main Street Real Estate Group
Jeff Bushaw has had a passion for real estate since he finished college but was told “no one would want to buy a house from a ‘kid.’” When his corporate finance job was relocated out of state, he saw an opportunity to make the jump. Today, Bushaw is a broker-owner of Main Street Real Estate Group, a full-service real estate brokerage and lifestyle company serving the Chicagoland area. Bushaw has been named a Chicago Association of Realtors’ Top Producer for 2015 and 2016.
Bushaw works with a variety of clients, from first-time homebuyers to repeat clients. He is known for his dedication, strong market experience, organization and integrity. When asked how he continues to grow his business, he says, “I am diligent with prospecting and set aside time every day for lead generation. I also never forget past clients. Those are the relationships that continue to build over time. By never losing touch with them, I stay at the top of their mind when their friends or family are looking to buy or sell real estate.”
Since he founded Main Street Real Estate Group three years ago with his partners, the company has grown to just shy of 60 agents. Bushaw feels their approach is unique. “It’s about the way we connect on a personal level with each and every client. This is not just a business transaction, it’s about helping people find a home, their single most expensive purchase, the place they want to come home to every day and enjoy with friends and loved ones — something they are proud of,” he says.
Bushaw is also involved in volunteer work. The company’s Main Street Cares initiative picks a different organization to partner with for an event each year. “Most recently we spent a day at the Greater Chicago Food Depository re-packaging food into individual and family-sized portions for families in need,” he says.
In his free time, Bushaw enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, golfing with friends or spending an afternoon at Wrigley Field. “I never miss a chance to be outside and enjoying each day to its fullest.”
