Shelly Gubser knows firsthand the wonder Chicago can inspire, and the challenges living in a new city can present. Her love for Chicago laid the groundwork for her determined entrance into the real estate market. Having lived in different neighborhoods, Gubser, a broker with Compass, gained local understanding of the city. That, combined with her warm approach and dedication to her clients, make for a killer combo. In just four years, she has quickly become a pro, noting, “experience matters, and I am constantly learning more with every sale.”
“There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes of a real estate transaction,” she adds. “My previous career in PR and marketing for global-name brands has been beneficial as it taught me to make decisions quickly and with confidence, pay attention to details, and manage clients’ expectations.” Clients say her superpowers are a balance between making the transaction process seamless while making it less stressful and even fun.
Diligent with a positive and uplifting attitude, Gubser always remembers, “You don’t get caught up in a bad day; you focus on your why: the client and your investment in their best interests. When people feel valued, they trust you. And this can go a long way to ensure a smooth transaction. My clients always know that they are my priority.”
Possessing an organized and process-driven work style while bringing humor and joy to her client interactions make Gubser an unforgettable force for her clients’ goals and needs. “We talk expectations upfront and lay the groundwork,” she says. “I value being realistic and truthful, and they value my trusted-advisor approach and that I am never pushy.”
Having built a solid business, this team leader is positioned for wonderful things in the years to come— and so are her clients.
