Everyone in Arlington Heights knows Holly Connors by name, and this notoriety goes well beyond real estate. She is a pillar of the community, philanthropically as a business owner, and personally through her involvement in her kids’ schools and neighborhood activities. Community members count on Connors to know the minutiae of the neighborhood.
As a founding agent of @properties, Connors is one of Chicagoland’s top residential real estate agents. She’s an expert in her field and a leader and innovator amongst her peers. She has a boundless drive; she’s always working on getting her clients into the right home or getting their homes sold.
Never one to shy away from a challenge, Connors’ tenacity helped local businesses during the pandemic. She and her team began GetBurbed Bites, a charity initiative created to encourage the community to order from local Arlington Heights restaurants, with proceeds going to Arlington Cares, which helps community members get back on their feet.
Connors is constantly pushing boundaries, adopting cutting-edge technology and is always a leader in the industry. At GetBurbed, Connors works with each team member to play to their strengths and build their business. Her experience gives her an edge; she’s come across unconventional situations and can guide clients — and her team — through anything. She is a comfort when needed and gives a push when needed. “Our team is extremely collaborative and a real support system for each other,” she says. “We provide each other with helpful insights and opinions in tough situations.”
Connors and her team have received many awards and accolades for their work, including Crain’s Notable Residential Real Estate Broker, Real Trends America’s Best Real Estate Professionals, Chicago Association of Realtors Platinum Award, Best of Trulia, Best of Zillow, NextDoor Neighborhood Favorite and Daily Herald Readers’ Choice Best Realtor.
“We have watched Holly grow a successful business and are incredibly proud and grateful that she chose to do it with us,” says @properties co-founder Mike Golden. “Her success is a testament to her talent, dedication and hard work!”
