Keisha Williams had the opportunity to live in, work in and frequent several parts of Chicago throughout her childhood and young adult life. This gave her a firm grasp of the West, North and South sides; the Loop; and downtown, as well as DuPage County. A coincidental boon for business, it allows her to speak from experience about what makes those areas special places in which to live.
Williams, a Realtor with Fulton Grace Realty, is passionate about working with buyers, sellers, developers and investors. Dealing in new construction, renovations and existing homes, she leverages more than 25 years of experience in real estate and mortgage lending to help achieve successful transactions for all parties involved.
Williams became interested in real estate while working as a loan processor, regularly communicating with buyers, attorneys and agents. During the recession in 2008, she saw an opportunity to try something new following well over a decade in the mortgage industry. She earned a real estate license and fell in love with the personal-interaction aspect of the industry.
“Having that mortgage background, I’m able to help guide my clients through the process with a good understanding of what it truly entails,” she says. “They really appreciate the broad knowledge base and assistance I’m able to provide.”
Currently serving as a committee member at the Chicago Association of Realtors, Williams is a 2019 runner-up for most improved agent at Fulton Grace. Previously serving on the company’s Lighthouse Team — which focused primarily on renovation development and made CAR’s list of top-producing teams by sales volume in 2016, 2018 and 2019 — she’s also a member of the Chicago chapter of the Women’s Council of Realtors.
Williams enjoys spending time with friends and family, engaging in philanthropy and traveling. During the pandemic, she added an addition to her family, a toy poodle she’s named Kobe Bean, a tribute to basketball legend Kobe Bryant. To give back, Williams serves on the executive board for the Women’s Board of the Chicago Urban League, helping distribute scholarships for first-generation minority college students.
