Alex Haralambakis, Managing Partner
Maddie Schramm, Senior Partner
Often in a productive real estate partnership, the recipe for success is passed down by generations. For Alex Haralambakis, managing partner of residential and luxury sales, and her partner, Maddie Schramm, senior partner of residential and luxury sales, “devotion is our distinction,” they say. Both with Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty, their generational backgrounds in real estate and attentiveness to their clients’ needs have shaped their business into the sensation it is today.
Haralambakis is a third-generation real estate agent whose grandmother ran a successful brokerage in suburban Hinsdale, while Schramm is a second-generation real estate agent, learning from her father who had a thriving four-decade career in Chicagoland real estate. “We are very attuned to how clients buy and sell homes today,” the duo says. “In today’s fast-paced market, it’s important to us we have an open and honest conversation about the process and what to expect”.
Their partnership is already a proven force to be reckoned with. Haralambakis is a noted veteran in the real estate community who understands the nuances of the Chicago market, while Schramm brings a refreshing energy and comprehensive knowledge of the homebuying process. Together, they create the perfect fusion of distinguished and enthusiastic, giving them an unparalleled advantage to work with all client types.
“We pride ourselves on providing the best experience possible for each client, so we examine each case thoroughly based on their goals,” they say. In a hot market like this, what sets them apart is their ability to see steps ahead of the rest. “Being strategic with putting together offers has optimized the success of how we negotiate on behalf of our clients,” say the two, who have earned honors such as Sotheby’s Platinum Sales Producer in 2020. “Our clients trust in us has left us with a business that is 100 percent referral-based,” they say. And they’re in it for the long haul with clients.
“Our motto is ‘Beyond the Sale,’” they say. “So, building and maintaining relationships past the transaction stage is where we rise above the rest.”
