Theo Jordan & Katie Cassman
Theo Jordan and Katie Cassman, both brokers with @properties, understand that a house is “not just a home – it’s a lifestyle.” The Chicago natives know that each city neighborhood has its own personality, and they want to help their clients find their perfect fit. “We pride ourselves on being open books, and it’s reciprocated with our clients. This creates a level of comfort that translates tangibly into a successful transaction,” they say.
Jordan got her start in real estate eight years ago, earning her broker’s license after graduating from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She joined @properties and became one of Chicago’s top producers in 2011, and was named a Top-Rated Estate Agent by Top Rated Media, Inc. In 2016, Cassman, a University of Kansas graduate who worked in marketing, social media and public relations for seven years, joined Jordan to create Jordan & Cassman Real Estate. The team had a strong 2016. “Our volume was just over $14 million and there isn’t one deal that we would rank above the rest. It was the combined experiences with each and every client that made it an amazing year,” they said.
Jordan and Cassman say they have a “hunger for new experiences so that everyone involved in a transaction is learning and growing and in turn getting better at what we do,” they said. The team works with a diverse group of clients, ranging from first-time buyers to investors. “It’s been fun to watch the evolution of our first-time buyers expanding their families and helping them find a home into their next chapter.”
The pair say that blending their 17-year friendship into a successful business relationship has been their biggest personal accomplishment of the past year. The duo is also on @properties’ @gives back Community Fund executive board. “Last year we raised $150,000 for (Chicago Blackhawks defenseman) Duncan Keith’s Keith Relief,” they said. Cassman is part of the Windy City Blogger Collective and has her own fashion and lifestyle blog, and she is also involved in the organizations Bright Pink, Jewish United Fund’s Tikkun Olam Volunteer Network and Midwest Palliative & Hospice CareCenter.
