Powered by her business acumen and commitment to service, Connie Grunwaldt offers two decades of award-winning real estate experience and 25 years as a Chicago resident to help her clients make informed decisions.
Serving buyers, sellers and investors, the
@properties broker has built a referral-heavy business, with 96% of her clientele coming from customers who’ve heard directly about her genuine nature and deep industry insight.
Prior to joining the real estate industry, Grunwaldt worked in sales and marketing for Procter & Gamble and SC Johnson Wax. “I have found the marketing, negotiation and client service skills I honed in my previous career, on top of my firsthand experience purchasing and selling my own properties, are invaluable,” she says, adding that she owns multiple real estate investments and has rehabbed many others. “This frequent participation in the market keeps me current on the cost of acquisition, lending options and legal hurdles, allowing my customers the most seamless and gratifying process.”
Earning the title of Rookie of the Year from Property Consultants Realty during her first year as a broker, Grunwaldt has regularly received industry recognition ever since. For the past 20 years, she has been ranked as a top producer by the Chicago Association of Realtors, and this year, upon joining @properties, she was awarded a Rolex for her production levels. She has also been featured in the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times and The New York Times, as well as in Wes Moss’ book “Starting From Scratch,” which features stories about people who made the entrepreneurial leap.
Grunwaldt is the proud mother of a teenage son. Together, they enjoy skiing, biking, traveling and finding forever homes for rescue dogs. She is active in her community, including prepping meals for a transitional living program, and has served on a local school council and founded and led a Cub Scout den. She also volunteered for over a decade at a homeless youth shelter and has fostered teenagers in the past.
