The Dawn McKenna Group (DMG) is the authority on Chicago real estate, specializing in luxury homes, new construction and rental properties. Helmed by real estate visionary Dawn McKenna, DMG Chicago has been steadily gaining a reputation as one of the city’s most-talented and forward-thinking real estate teams.
Prior to coming together, Chicago team members Caitlin Smith, Tory Rezin and Allie Cipra worked a variety of high-stakes jobs that prepared them for the fast-paced nature of buying and selling in one of America’s largest cities. Rezin worked for a global marketing firm, developing campaigns for various Fortune 500 companies. A skilled strategist, she has become known for her marketing prowess and innate ability to align her clients’ goals with the right properties on the market. Team member Caitlin Smith surpassed $15 million in sales for 2022, but she says one of the greatest joys of her career has been watching renter clients turn into homeowner clients. Smith started the DMG Rental Program in 2017, going to various college campuses and putting on presentations to graduating seniors about renting in Chicago. After helping those clients find apartments in their first years in the city, she’s now transitioning them into first-time homeowners. A go-getter and connector, Cipra thrives on bringing people and homes together. Her style, attention to detail and “make-it-happen” attitude, honed during her time working for an L.A. luxury wedding planner and a production design firm, gives her an edge in the competitive Chicago marketplace.
Led by McKenna, these accomplished team members are fully committed to finding the perfect home for all of their clients, no matter their life stage. They continue to expand their market niches and remain passionate about making city living attainable for individuals and families around Chicagoland.
