Though Kelly Angelopoulos didn’t begin her career in real estate, her exceptional customer service skills translate well to the field. Through working with the Trump Organization’s hotel arm during its first five years in Chicago, she knows that providing exceptional service is a valuable ability in nearly every industry.
For Angelopoulos, moving to a career in real estate was a natural progression. The switch allowed her to have an experience similar to that of her previous job, but with an entire city as her inventory. “Every experience leading up to my career in real estate provided me with the discipline, polish and finesse that contribute to my success,” she says. “Luxury service is a way you make someone feel; it’s an experience and clear expectation that you can’t replicate.”
As a vice president of sales for Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty, Angelopoulos works in the new development and construction industries, as well as luxury real estate.
One of her favorite aspects of her job has been the opportunity to serve clients no matter where life takes them. Over the course of the past year, she has taken the time to educate herself on the industry’s key trends and continue research in several facets of her work. “I thrive on challenges and love to get creative with marketing and strategy,” she says.
Jameson Sotheby’s recognized Angelopoulos as a Top 15 Producer in 2018 and a Top 20 Producer in 2017. The Chicago Association of Realtors also named her a Top Producer in both 2018 and 2017. She is a member of CAR and agent with Jameson Commercial Real Estate.
In her free time, Angelopoulos focuses on living a healthy lifestyle through exercise and by surrounding herself with people she loves. She believes maintaining a healthy mindset has been instrumental to her professional success, and she meditates daily. “For me, personal success is about reflection, transformation and growth,” she says. “I am constantly working on myself and ways I can better serve my purpose within the industry.”
