Baird & Warner
For Millie Rosenbloom, real estate has always been a natural fit: When she was growing up, her parents would buy homes, renovate them and resell them. She was exposed to the world of business through her mother, who owned three beauty salons. Rosenbloom learned early on the importance of having a quality product, putting clients first and the art of negotiation.
Now with 28 years of experience under her belt, Rosenbloom has become a leader in the real estate industry. She was the third woman to be president of the Chicago Association of Realtors (CAR), and in 2014, she was inducted to CAR’s Hall of Fame. She has also been ranked No. 1 in sales out of more than 2,200 brokers at Baird & Warner for the past decade.
When clients describe Rosenbloom, they note that she’s a great listener and negotiator. “Clients trust me and I am honest with them. People really appreciate this, and I never take client’s trust for granted. That trust and my knowledge are very important,” Rosenbloom says. Her intuitive understanding of the real estate market has helped her sell everything from apartment buildings to a hospital, a golf course and even a gravel pit. This breadth of experience and her go-getter attitude have made her a Chicago industry icon.
Though Rosenbloom has been in real estate for many years, she continues to rise to new challenges. In 2016, she reached her highest sales volume ever, clocking in at $85 million. The year also brought personal accomplishments in line with her love of real estate. “I completed the renovation of my deck, a new garage and my landscaping at my personal residence. I used the newest and most sophisticated materials and design,” Rosenbloom says.
Rosenbloom is also active in the service of various Chicago causes, including the Brain Research Foundation, the Magnificent Mile Association, and Facing History and Ourselves. In her free time, she enjoys exercising and going to the theatre. “My husband and I are avid symphony and opera goers,” she says.
