Elizabeth August of @properties is known for her commitment to her clients and her appreciation of all the city has to offer. “I grew up in the Chicagoland area and have lived in the city for over 20 years,” she says. “I love all the great pockets from West Loop to Evanston, Lincoln Park to Elmhurst.” Since becoming a broker in 2002, August has worked with sellers and buyers from a range of markets, including new construction and luxury, and has built up a network of repeat customers and referrals. “Working directly with designers and design coordinators over the years on new properties has helped me with everything from staging to updating clients’ units and homes to prepare them for listing,” she explains.
In 2017, August closed over $30 million in sales and was named among the Top 1 Percent of Producers by the Chicago Association of Realtors, continuing her streak as a top producer since joining the industry. This year, August was recognized as Crain’s Most Influential Residential Real Estate Broker and has previously earned Rookie of the Year and Road to Rolex honors.
“Each year, I set both personal and professional goals,” she says. “This past year I was able to create a really great balance between focusing on real estate and spending time with my husband and two kids.”
August is an active member of her children’s elementary school community, volunteering in the classroom as well as on the religious education board and the art appreciation committee.
