Known for their attention to detail and willingness to go above and beyond for their clients, the Schwabe Group at Compass balances their professionalism and knowledge with a caring and fun approach to make the stressful real estate process more enjoyable. “Our goal is to provide world-class service to every client,” David Schwabe, team lead and principal, explains. “By having a team and network of professionals who support our clients, we are able to achieve that.” The team of brokers works with a broad range of clients, from first-time buyers and city-to-suburb transition clients to empty nesters looking to downsize and families transferring to the area. “No sale is too small or too big for our team,” Schwabe says.
In the industry for 21 years, Schwabe received a degree in mechanical engineering from Marquette University in Milwaukee before moving to Arlington Heights in 1991. The majority of his team members currently live in the northwest suburbs they cover including Arlington Heights, Palatine, Mount Prospect, Buffalo Grove and Prospect Heights. Team members are Faith Gleeson, Krysti Scheib, Rana Salom Hamwi, Amy Pappas, Sarah Faraci-Gomez, Taylor Schulhof and Mark Stehling. Primarily focusing on single-family homes, townhomes and condos, they also partner clients with experienced agents when moving out of their local market.
Named a top 1% Realtor in America, Schwabe is a member of the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce and recently transitioned his team from another firm to Compass. “The personal growth needed to transition, learn new systems and add new agents to the team, all while continuing to grow the business, is an enormous accomplishment,” he says. “Our clients value our experience and knowledge, yet they appreciate our softer approach.”
Understanding that every situation is different as markets and technology change, the Schwabe Group brings their diverse backgrounds, support of a top brokerage and their dedication to continuing education and skills to each transaction. “Our atmosphere is fun, but at the same time, we promise to always deliver exceptional service to our clients,” Schwabe says.
