While buying and selling homes for himself, Hadley Rue found he enjoyed the process so much he decided to make it a career. “I became very good friends with my last agent, who is now my managing broker,” says Rue, an agent with Dream Town Realty. Fastidious with details and tenacious in the sales process, he enjoys the thrill of achieving results for his clients.
Rue was raised in the western suburbs and now lives in Andersonville. Prior to real estate, he worked in finance and spent several years working for a private management company on the North Shore, an experience that helped him become very familiar with the local housing market.
Last year, Rue represented both the buyer and seller in one of the largest transactions in Cook County. Recognized among the area’s Most Notable Real Estate Brokers by Crain’s Chicago Business, he ranks among the top 1% of members at the Chicago Association of Realtors and has been a Five Star Professional Award recipient for the past five consecutive years. Named a Dream Town top producer every year since 2016, he was the company’s No. 1 individual producer in 2018.
Rue attributes many of his accomplishments to his focus on customer service. “My dedication to my clients and achieving their goals has driven my success,” he says. “I have excellent follow-through, and my clients know they can depend on me 100%.”
Rue assists a broad range of clients, including first-time buyers, luxury buyers and sellers, investors, developers, and estate trusts. His sales and expertise span the western suburbs, North Shore, and Chicago’s downtown and North Side neighborhoods.
Rue believes that creating a brand that clients can trust is fundamental. Known for his can-do attitude, he adopted the tagline, “Rue can do,” one that has become synonymous with his name for both colleagues and clients. He is eager to continue growing his brand throughout 2020, which is proving to be one of his biggest years yet.
