For more than 15 years, SwakeGroup has leveraged the knowledge and multidisciplinary skill sets of their top-producing brokers to craft seamless client experiences. Operating under Dream Town Realty, SwakeGroup serves buyers and sellers across all types of inventory throughout Chicagoland. At the heart of the group’s success is their collective focus on one core value and tag line: “Walking you home, every step of the way.”

SwakeGroup consists of founder and president Todd Szwajkowski, along with brokers Amie Klujian, Liz LaTour, Ted Mortellaro, Erin Payton and recent addition Michael Peterson. Transaction coordinator Matt Winger helps to ensure every transaction is seamless.

The group was founded in 2007 when Szwajkowski recruited Klujian to join the boutique brokerage where he worked at the time. “What evolved was a relationship based on mentoring and collaboration that we soon realized was collectively beneficial to both ourselves and our clients,” Szwajkowski says.

The Chicago Association of Realtors consistently recognizes SwakeGroup members as top producers. Szwajkowski attributes this success to their ability to provide services throughout all steps of the transaction, beyond just moving from contract to close. “I’m particularly proud of our team’s ability to interpret and communicate critical data in a way that empowers our clients to make the best decisions for themselves, all in an approachable, consultative manner,” he says. “I’m thankful that this has led to ever-growing loyalty among our clients, as evidenced by our continuous referral-driven growth.”

Beyond the transaction, Szwajkowski is proud to work every day with colleagues who actively participate in Dream Town Realty’s Diversity Council and LGBTQ+ Client Services Team —believing everyone has a right to the home they seek.
