Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty
Nadia Rahmani’s eye for luxury and her passion for delivering grade-A customer service has earned her a loyal following among local and international clients. A full-time agent with Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty, Rahmani works with buyers, sellers and investors and specializes in high-end properties in the city and surrounding suburbs.
“I love challenges like finding diamond-in-the-rough properties and turning them into beautiful homes,” she says, noting that her perfectionistic tendencies and knowledge of staging and interior design has positively impacted her ability to sell homes with price points in the millions.
However, regardless of her clients’ budgets, Rahmani doesn’t play favorites. “I treat every client as [if they were a] family member,” she says.
Rahmani has a solid track record in luxury sales, and currently has a $5 million energy-efficient home on the market. Her success is a product of her work ethic, well-honed negotiation skills, enthusiasm for real estate and constant dedication to exceeding her clients’ expectations. She also speaks four languages — English, Spanish, French and Arabic — making her a dream agent for international clients seeking to transition to Chicago life.
Before entering the real estate industry, Rahmani was an international product manager for companies based in Paris. She then worked in marketing and owned and operated a retail store in Andersonville that sold Moroccan home decor. It was the unique combination of the opportunity to guide people through a major life investment, use all four languages and indulge her love of remarkable properties that lured her into switching to a real estate career.
Even after all these years, Rahmani attributes her success to her family: her husband Noufel and her two children, Ines and Rayan. “They inspire me every day to be a better version of me,” she says. “They motivate me to work even harder to make their dreams come true.”
