With a background in technology, sales, marketing and psychology all before he discovered his love for real estate, Danny Glick took a circuitous journey to get to where he is today. Yet with each position held, he learned the value of one core competency: active listening.
Glick is a broker for @properties serving the Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Bucktown, Wicker Park, North Center and Lincoln Square markets. For the last 15 years, he has led a team of dynamic agents supporting buyers, sellers and developers who demand honest and objective advice. Glick originally began a successful career with IBM in technology sales before deciding to pursue psychology. From there, he worked as a suicide hotline crisis counselor, case manager, clinician and substitute teacher. But it was a serendipitous call from his own real estate agent that ultimately led him to his calling.
Glick’s prior work experience strengthened his ability to listen closely and provide empathy in any situation. His team employs a process-driven approach: From the beginning of every transaction, they gain a firm understanding of their client’s wishes. “When you’re able to not only hear the words that someone is saying but understand the meaning behind the words, it really illuminates what’s driving someone’s decision,” Glick says. His team also highlights any issues that may arise and assures clients that he is equipped to handle them all.
Glick’s continued success has led him to receive several accolades throughout his career. He has been ranked in the top 1% of all Realtors in Illinois for well over a decade, has been featured on HGTV’s “House Hunters,” was named among the 100 Most Influential Realtors by Real Estate Executive Magazine, and has contributed to local TV and print outlets. Glick is considered an expert not only by his clients but also among his peers. He wakes up every day with one purpose in mind: “To make sure our clients have the perfect transaction,” affording them the most important feeling of all, peace of mind.
