Vice President of Agent Development
Rebecca Thomson is a mainstay of Chicago’s real estate market. After 12 years in the industry, Thomson takes her success in strides.
That comes from never settling for the status quo. Her progressive approach has earned her a fiercely loyal client base and the respect of her peers.
According to Thomson, “A great broker brings value beyond plugging data into a formula. It is making the impossible, possible.”
How does she do it? “Before a property even hits the market, it is identifying and targeting the most likely buyers. When sellers know what they want, it is digging to find that pocket listing that checks all their boxes. In a multiple offer situation, it is positioning our clients for the win, even when we aren’t the highest offer.”
“Being the better broker means giving your clients the edge. That’s what we need to bring to the table, each and every day.”
That mindset is inspiring the next generation of brokers with @properties, where Thomson leads a team of trainers and coaching staff that’s among the most innovative in the country. “The culture here is inspiring. I’m surrounded by the best minds in the business and it challenges my team and me to keep raising that bar.” It seems to be working; since Thomson’s arrival, @properties has grown from 1,200 to 2,200 brokers.
Key to Thomson’s success is keeping her pulse on the market; locally and nationally. Thomson is the incoming President for the Chicago Association of Realtors and serves on boards for both the state and national associations. In addition, Thomson serves on the Women’s Council of Realtors Executive Committee and on the Realtor University Board of Regents.
Among her many accolades are the Women’s Council Chicago Elevate Award and, most recently, the 2017 Chicago Association of Realtors Achievement Award.
Thomson is clearly a woman to watch. She manages to do it all, she does it exceptionally well, and makes it look easy.
