Looking Back on 2017 and Forward to 2018

Looking Back on 2017 and Forward to 2018

2017 was an amazing year. Today, I want to share what we’re thankful for and discuss goal-setting for 2018.

2017 was a record-breaking year for us. We had two record sales. One property was in West Chicago in Ancient Oaks, and the other was in Geneva. We also closed on a $1.9 million co-op building in down and a cute little property in Wheaton for under $90,000.

We represent large and small homes. We are thankful for all of our clients, whether you bought, sold, or rented—thank you for an amazing year.

Thank you to all who helped contribute to our new book for my consulting business called “Luxury Listing Specialist.” We also launched a new podcast to help real estate agents and give back to the industry.

We represented some amazing properties this year. In fact, Architectural Digest named one of our properties in Barrington Hills as the most beautiful homes for sale in all of Illinois.

Thank you for all of your referrals and reviews. We appreciate your feedback. 



Now, let’s talk about 2018. You might have heard me talk about my “Prove Them Wrong" sign. As we head into 2018, many people make New Year’s resolutions and resolve to start the year with a clean slate. However, whether those goals are related to your business or personal life, most people don’t stick to them.

Prove them wrong. Create goals that are attainable and create accountability partners.

The magic happens when you step outside of your comfort zone, so think big and prove them wrong.

Again, thank you for everything you’ve done for us in 2017. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We would be happy to help you.

Here’s to another great year in 2018!
