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 understanding of the West, North and South Sides; the Loop; downtown; and 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 since 2016, 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 2008 recession, she saw an opportunity to try something new after more than a decade in the mortgage industry. She earned a real estate license and fell in love with the personal-interaction aspect of the industry.
Williams is currently a student of the Chicago Association of Realtors’ Leadership Accelerator as well as a committee member with the group. She previously served on the 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 and 2022 program director for the Chicago network of the Women’s Council of Realtors. In addition, she’s a proud major investor for the Realtors Political Action Committee, whose investments help shape the future of the real estate industry.
Williams enjoys spending time with friends and family, exploring new restaurants and shops within the Chicagoland area, engaging in philanthropy, and traveling. During the pandemic, she added an addition to her family, a toy poodle named Kobe Bean–a tribute to basketball legend Kobe Bryant. To give back, Williams has served on the executive board of the Women’s Board of the Chicago Urban League, working to distribute scholarships to first-generation minority college students.
