As one of Chicago’s top producers, Janelle Dennis always strives to provide clients with expertise and advice honed from 18 years of experience in real estate. “For all of us, there is a passion for real estate and helping our clients obtain their dream homes,” says Dennis, founder and team lead broker of Janelle Dennis + Team with @properties. “We marry this with an entrepreneurial drive to create our own successes, but in a collaborative environment on a team.”
A client’s best interest is at the heart of everything they do. Their high level of service, combined with deep market knowledge of the city and suburbs, leads to great results. Supported by virtual assistant Samantha Burns, Dennis and fellow brokers Hannah Roesch and Tom Mattingly, the Janelle Dennis Team consistently ranks among @properties’ top producers and in the top1%-5% of brokers every year by the Chicago Association of Realtors.
A founding agent with the company, Dennis joined @properties in 2004, when it had fewer than 100 agents and only two offices. To best assist clients, she holds multiple designations of higher education in real estate: Graduate, Realtor Institute; Real Estate Negotiations Expert; Accredited Buyer’s Representative; and Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist.
Roesch joined the team in 2018, earned one of @properties’ Rookie of the Year awards and is now on track to have her best year yet to get her Rolex for over $10 million in personal sales. “Our team is great because we have different areas of expertise to make sure our clients get the best service possible,” she says. Tom Mattingly, a professional dancer and choreographer, joined the team in 2020 after switching careers. “The arts taught me that one problem often has a multitude of answers,” he says. “In a challenging market like this one, it’s important to think creatively.”
The team boasts multiple college degrees and a wealth of professional expertise in marketing and communications, which it uses in buying and selling homes for clients.
