“I bring a very human element to the process of finding a new home,” says Chicago agent and owner of Marr Group LLC, Troy Marr. “It’s important my clients feel seen, heard and cared for when working with me. I never want anyone to feel embarrassed to have a budget or feel as if I expect them to exceed their means. I know Chicago; I know the inventory; I take time to get to know my client and that is how we find the perfect new home.”
Marr and his team of dedicated and caring agents understand that when someone is moving, more often than not, something significant is happening in their life — and they get to be a part of it.
Prior to beginning his real estate career, Marr served as the Union President for the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, representing flight attendants from a variety of major airlines. After accepting an early retirement, Marr spent two years traveling the world and then began to question what his next adventure might be. For years, Marr listened to his mother say “That could be you!” every time she watched Million Dollar Listing. Having always been interested in a real estate career, he took the opportunity to shadow an agent friend and quickly fell in love with the business.
Marr specializes in multi-family leasing, a booming market in the Chicago area. Marr and his team have developed partnerships with some of the largest property-management companies in the city, ensuring he and his clients will be satisfied with the inventory and earning him Top Producer status from the Chicago Association of REALTORS® four years in a row. “Looking for an apartment, especially in a market like Chicago, can be a stressful endeavor and I hope to make the process feel joyful and supported,” he says. “I think that finding a new home should be fun rather than stressful. I like to get creative with my clients and help them find a place that feels like home.”
