With a numbers-focused brain and a Master of Financial Engineering degree, Daniel Xia, lead broker with Compass, is the kind of data-focused mind that you want at the helm of the largest financial investment most people ever make in their lives. Seven years into his career, Xia is serving buyers and sellers all across Chicagoland, including in the Loop and other in-demand neighborhoods of the city, combining unparalleled analytical skills with a friendly, fun and helpful personality.
“I started this career working with a lot of first-time homebuyers,” Xia says of his early days. “Having recently purchased my own condo, I felt like the process was interesting and I enjoyed house-hunting. Now I enjoy working with clients just as much.” A member of the Chicago Association of Realtors, the Top Agent Network and — here’s a fun twist — the Professional Ski Instructors of America organization, he truly is multitalented. These experiences have helped him earn the Top Producer award at Compass for the past five years running.
“I’m patient and professional,” Xia says of his most common client feedback. Clients also applaud his proactive and resourceful approach and how fast he responds to their requests and questions. “I don’t just address their needs professionally, but I try to make the process fun and easy for my clients.” Starting by understanding the frame of what clients need, he builds his approach and customizes it to the individual client.
Now leading a team of four other agents with a collaborative approach and true teamwork, Xia has built a referrals-based business and leveraged his background to help countless clients make what he calls “a smart decision.” “I’m good at numbers, but I also just love helping people find their perfect home,” he says. “My clients close knowing that they got the best deal imaginable — and were supported every step of the way.”
