Driven by their entrepreneurial spirits, Adele Lang and Jen Vest co-founded Two Door Group at Compass to bring their shared goal of creating a client-oriented real estate team to fruition. With a combined four years of industry experience, Lang and Vest assist a diverse range of buyers and sellers on Chicago’s North Side and in the surrounding suburbs. “We’ve seen that first-time homeowners gravitate to us because of the consultative nature of our approach,” they explain. “Our seller clients tend to be time-crunched professionals who appreciate that we take so much off their plates.”
Prior to teaming up, both Vest and Lang held service-based positions, preparing them for their roles as real estate professionals. Vest was an account director in the marketing industry for over a decade, developing strategies for brands of all sizes. Lang worked in hospitality for nine years and taught English in South Korea and Taiwan for four years before switching careers.
Capitalizing on the joint power of their unique skill sets and backgrounds, Lang and Vest have formed a dynamic collaboration and earned a sparkling reputation for their knowledge, resourcefulness and honesty. Within the last two years, the duo served 60 clients and closed over $18.9 million in business. In 2017, the Chicago Association of Realtors presented Lang with its Sales Award for Units, and in 2018, Vest was a finalist in Chicago Agent magazine’s Agents’ Choice Awards. The team also holds Real Estate Negotiation Expert and Pricing Strategy Advisor certifications. “Our clients know that we will navigate through the toughest of negotiations with them and still have fun the whole way through,” they say. “It’s such an honor to serve them.”
Lang is the president of the Ravenswood Neighbors Association’s Advisory Council and a member of Business Network International. She volunteers at the Ravenswood Community Kitchen, cooking meals for over 100 community members every month. Vest is also a member of Business Network International and an owner and former board member of Chicago Market, a community grocery co-op opening in Uptown.
Both Lang and Vest are avid travelers and are as excited to explore the world as they are to explore the city they call home.
