Nancy McAdam is hailed as a consummate professional, navigating Chicago’s diverse neighborhoods and its fluctuating markets with grace and ease. As the vice president of sales at Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty, McAdam assists a full spectrum of clients ranging from luxury clients to first-time buyers to investors in areas like the Gold Coast, Streeterville, Millennium Park, Lakeshore East, South Loop, West Loop, Fulton Market, River North, Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Roscoe Village, North Center and the North Shore.
Entering the real estate industry 16 years ago after a 12-year career in management consulting and 27 years as her church’s treasurer, McAdam has excelled from day one. Starting out on a part-time basis to help her church find a new building, McAdam soon become her friends’ go-to agent. “My business grew from there,” she says.
Even with the slower market in 2018, McAdam increased her total sales, setting a new personal record. She has ranked among Jameson Sotheby’s top producers every year since 2012 and has been recognized as a top producer by the Chicago Association of Realtors.
“The common thread in my client testimonials is that I am extremely knowledgeable about the area and market,” she says. “They appreciate that I’m patient, detail-oriented and well-organized, all of which helps ensure that there are no loose ends at the closing table.”
Relying on a multi-pronged marketing approach, McAdam uses traditional mailers, flyers and brochures along with social media posts, eblasts and professional networks such as Top Agent Network and Sotheby’s global network. She makes use of a variety of websites, including her own site, SIR.com and third-party sites. Her branding can be seen on TV screens in Sotheby offices, and she even runs ads in Jameson Sotheby’s monthly magazine, IMAGINE. She’s also previously participated in Jameson Sotheby’s internal training programs, giving herself an edge over her competition.
