Kelly Johnson, Broker

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate

Broker and mother of two Kelly Johnson helps clients that are both buying and selling in the neighborhoods on the Northside of Chicago. She works with all types of clients, from first-time buyers to luxury sellers.

Johnson and her family moved from DC to Chicago 12 years ago and explored virtually every neighborhood on the Northside before settling into the neighborhood of Roscoe Village. “From the moment I realized that each neighborhood had such a uniqueness to it, I decided I wanted to know as much about all of them as I could,” she says. “I have learned through being a parent where all the best parks and playground and schools are located, so I can help families decide what life would be like raising kids in the city when so many families feel like they need to move to the suburbs to have those great amenities…Chicago has so much to offer, and everything is so accessible!”

Having grown up in a real estate family, Johnson watched her father take care of his clients and learned from a young age the importance of putting clients first. “I’m very hands-on. When I’m hired, I’m the only one working with my clients,” she says. “If I’m doing a virtual showing because my client is out of town, I can tell them right away if it’s something they will love or should pass on. When I’m selling a client’s home, I know everything there is to know about that home and can answer any question prospective buyers and agents may have…I am very dedicated to my clients and because of this I get so much gratitude from them.”

Johnson sold over $10 million in 2021, an exciting benchmark for her career. She attributes this success to her honesty and compassion for others. “Buying or selling a home can be very overwhelming,” she says. “It’s my job (and very rewarding) to alleviate as much of that as possible so clients can look back and say, ‘that wasn’t so bad, it was actually kind of fun!’”
