Partners Joel Holland and Peter Krzyzanowski of the One Corner Team at Keller Williams OneChicago bring 23 years of combined experience to their work across downtown Chicago and the city’s northern suburbs. The team works with first-time buyers, sellers, renters, landlords, urban and suburban transitions and just about any type of property you can imagine. Previously known as My Chicago REsource, they just launched their new brand, One Corner. “People’s lives are changing more than ever before, and we are excited to honor that. One Corner is about empowering people to find their place in the world,” says Holland.
“I knew I wanted to be in the people business,” Holland says of his real estate beginnings. “Understanding people, being an intimate trusted adviser to help people with something so important in their lives was a natural fit to connect my passion and my career, and real estate allows me to do that.” “A passion for Chicago and a desire to use that to help people in a meaningful way drove me to real estate,” Krzyzanowski says. “My entrepreneurial mindset has helped power that dream.” With varied backgrounds that include advertising, marketing, financial advisory and pit-trader positions, this duo combines sharp business acumen with a hard-earned toughness that wins clients’ appreciation and trust.
“The word ‘team’ comes up in almost all of our reviews,” they say of their clients’ experiences. “And that’s exactly our intention, because our clients hire us together.” The pair is also backed by a group of other professionals, including buyer’s specialists Daria Dlouchy and Emina Dapcevic, leasing specialist Kyle Boyd, client-care specialist Shaunna Richardson, listing manager Jennifer Mason and operations manager Jessica Lang. Clients describe Krzyzanowski and Holland as trustworthy, systems-focused, educational, communicative, strong negotiators and most importantly, a caring combination of professionals with the right backgrounds and attitudes.
In 2020, the team was ready for the pandemic’s challenges, as they’ve been flexible, innovative and offered virtual services for more than 10 years. “Whether in person or virtual, we integrate humanity into our process,” they say. “Because this was always about people.”
