A former social worker, Maggie Antillon-Mathews strongly believes in the adage that “you have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.”
She has a proven track record, a heart of gold and a passion for helping people. “It’s simply a matter of doing the right thing,” says Antillon-Mathews, a managing broker at Realty of Chicago.
An inspiration to her peers, she co-authored the book “Latina Empowerment Through Leadership,” which was published in 2017 and quickly became a bestseller in Amazon’s women’s category.
Antillon-Mathews has been in real estate since 2001, working with residential and commercial buyers, sellers and investors on the North and Northwest sides of Chicagoland. She understands the importance and complexities of a real estate transaction and that selling a house is one of the biggest decisions in a person’s life. Antillon-Mathews prides herself on being available and open to answering questions anytime. She engenders trust, earns loyalty and endears herself to legions of clients by being herself.
A Chicago Association of Realtors Top Producer in 2018, Antillon-Mathews was also ranked among the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals’ Top 250 producers for two consecutive years. To best serve clients, she holds multiple designations: Pricing Strategy Advisor, Accredited Buyer’s Representative, Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource, Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives specialist and Certified Distressed Property Expert.
Antillon-Mathews is most proud of navigating the role of managing broker, trainer and mentor. It has allowed her to provide new agents with the tools and mentorship she wasn’t lucky enough to receive early in her career. She has spearheaded the company’s North Side expansion and cemented its market share with continuous growth in sales and new agent headcount growth of 30 percent year-to-year. “This has led to us being named one of the fastest-growing companies in Chicago and one of the largest Latino-owned real estate companies in the city,” she says.
Taking time to give back, Antillon-Mathews and her team support underserved communities by hosting back-to-school giveaways and holiday charity events. Antillon-Mathews enjoys volunteering in the community and spending quality time with friends, family, and her daughter, Sofia.
