Never failing to treat her clients like friends and family, Venetia Ann Johnson enjoys guiding them through the most important transactions of their lives. Johnson’s attentive nature allows her to act as a true resource every step of the way, a trait that has allowed her to rise above the competition throughout her 12 years in the real estate industry.
Before getting her start in real estate, Johnson was an executive assistant to the head of the litigation department at Kirkland & Ellis LLP. This role helped her refine her skills as a multitasker, as well as improve upon her already keen attention to detail and precision. Johnson once owned several rental properties and became curious about the other side of the real estate industry. She made her way into real estate when she decided to apply her love of helping others to a completely new profession.
Now a broker associate and Realtor for Coldwell Banker Realty, the native Chicagoan works with all types of clients located throughout several of the city’s neighborhoods. This past year, the National Association of Realtors recognized Johnson with the Commitment to Excellence endorsement, and she also successfully worked toward several real estate designations. As a whole, it’s her patience and passion that have led to her continued success. Johnson oversees every facet of the transaction process and succeeds at building a rapport with everyone involved. Her clients enter the process fully prepared, as Johnson takes the time to share her comprehensive knowledge about current market conditions and preparing homes for sale, as well as preapproval processes for buyers.
Johnson is a member of several professional associations, including the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, the National Association of Realtors, the Chicago Association of Realtors and the Residential Real Estate Council. She also enjoys cooking for her church’s homeless ministry, Hope’s Table at the First United Methodist Church at the Chicago Temple.
