Walt Burrell, Partner/Luxury Broker Specialist
Bridget Salela, Partner/Luxury Broker Specialist
With 50 years of combined experience, there’s no other team in Naperville quite like The Ville Team – partners and luxury broker specialists Bridget Salela and Walt Burrell; residential broker associates Nikki Genthner, Amy Hill, Serena Drendel and Kristy Gracia; commercial and residential broker associate Tom Maschmeier; and rental specialist and broker associate Luke Salela. The Ville Team services every aspect of real estate.
This team has the variety and breadth of experience to specialize in almost everything — from relocation to commercial, residential to luxury. Team members have lived in Naperville for extended amounts of time — and some even grew up in the area.
“Our team is structured differently,” says Bridget Salela. “Our brand is The Ville, but all of our agents bring unique benefits to our clients and our team.” Marketing locally but also globally, the Ville finds its manpower and marketing especially helpful for clients moving to the Chicago area. Members of the Luxury Marketing Institute, many of these team members have a keen understanding of how to market their brand’s listings in an eye-catching and modern way. Now in their fourth year as a team, The Ville closed a total of $34 million in listings between 2019 and 2020… only to close $45 million total by the mid-point of 2021.
“We’re the No. 1 team in Coldwell Banker Realty Naperville and received the company’s Top 2 Percent Presidential Award in 2019 and 2020,” says Walt Burrell. Clients commend The Ville Team’s inside knowledge of the area, community involvement and take-control style of covering all the bases of the transaction process.
“We call ourselves ‘your neighborhood brokers’ because we live and work here,” says Bridget Salela. “We’re as invested in this community as we are in our clients’ success and satisfaction.”
