Keeping in mind that small victories lead to big successes has been instrumental in the heights Anthony Disano has reached in his real estate career.
“I take pride in helping all types of buyers, sellers and institutional property owners locate, evaluate, manage and market real estate,” says Disano, managing broker of Parkvue Realty. “I am honored to have listed and sold for $4.65 million the historic Wrigley Mansion in Lincoln Park.”
Another sense of pride comes from helping his team members grow professionally through individual time management coaching, sales and customer service training.
Clients describe him as accommodating, sincere, passionate, hard-working and an excellent negotiator. In 2017, the industry noticed. Disano earned the Chicago Association of Realtors Gold level award for units sold. He also holds Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) Certification, expertise in assisting buyers and sellers of distressed properties. He has also added value to his clients by implemented an industry-changing 0 percent and 1 percent listing program.
“Before becoming a full-time real estate broker, I provided short-term purchase plus renovation financing for real estate investors,” he says, noting that he was vice president of rehab lending and oversaw the sales department. “I quickly realized my investor clients needed help locating properties to rehab, so I became licensed just to help them.”
Eventually, his brokerage business became his main focus, and 15 years later, he’s still at it. He utilizes a number of outlets to market listings: social media, direct mail, public relations, community outreach and his Circle of Success network of professionals.
“In addition to helping more than 1000 families purchase housing, being able to provide for my family, especially my son Anthony and daughter Siena, is by far my proudest accomplishment,” he says. “I love spending all of my downtime with my family, especially with my wife of nearly 10 years, Karisa.”
To date, his team has represented the purchase and sale of thousands of properties: single-family homes, condos, multi-family residences, commercial buildings, retail centers, mixed-use and industrial sites throughout the greater Chicago and Miami areas.
“Through this we have been able to promote homeownership, build wealth for investors and improve many communities,” he says. “I enjoy what I do and provide the same level of enthusiasm and professionalism for each and every transaction.”
His team works toward its goal of contributing 200 community service hours by volunteering at the Greater Chicago Food Depository and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
