Matt Farrell, Managing Partner
Michael Emery, Senior Partner
Managing partner Matt Farrell and senior partner Michael Emery made quite the splash when they introduced the Corcoran brand to Chicago back in March. The elite brokerage house, based in Manhattan, made for a perfect marriage with their long-standing boutique firm, Urban Real Estate. Urban’s vision perfectly aligned with the entrepreneurial spirit that inspired Barbara Corcoran to launch her namesake firm.
It came as no surprise that Corcoran sought out Farrell and Emery for their foray into the Midwest. Known for its sleek tech and cadre of talented brokers, Urban sets the bar exceptionally high when it comes to luxury client service. With a fleet of Mercedes emblazoned with the Corcoran Urban logo, an on-staff concierge and an enviable all-digital platform, they are in a class of their own.
Farrell is no stranger to the luxury market; as an industry leader and past president of the prestigious Chicago Association of Realtors, he is frequently quoted in news media and sought after for his expertise, discretion and discerning taste. His vision for innovation, coupled with flawless execution, gives Corcoran Urban its edge. He’s doubled down on their proprietary platform, and urbanrealestate.com continues to command impressive web traffic, fueled by both agents’ and consumers’ love for robust data in a simple interface.
Emery comes from the world of elite private clubs, and that background shows through in the customer service the brokerage’s team delivers day in and day out. “It always come down to delivering exceptional service, whether it is our clients or our agents. That’s what drives me,” says Emery. His leadership and commitment are evident in his actions, but it’s also clear when watching him interact with agents that his perspective is highly valued by the larger team.
Nestled in the New Eastside, adjacent to Millennium Park, Corcoran Urban Real Estate is making waves. With Farrell and Emery at the helm, the future is very bright.
