Essex Realty Group promotes Hayley Rawers to marketing director

Essex Realty Group announced the promotion of Hayley Rawers to the role of marketing director for the company that specializes in the sale of investment real estate throughout the Chicago metropolitan area. She advances her career with the company from her role as director.

“Hayley’s steadiness, professionalism, market knowledge, communication skills and warm way exemplifies the best of what Essex strives for. She helps to keep their team on track and is highly regarded by all of her peers,” said Doug Imber, president of Essex Realty Group.

Since January 2015, Rawers worked on the team led by principals Jim Darrow and Jordan Gottlieb where she concentrated primarily on asset valuation, market research and transaction analysis. Prior to joining Essex, she worked in the audit enterprise and risk services branch of Deloitte & Touche as an audit senior. Her primary audit industry was real estate, and she spent a majority of her time working with public REIT clients.

“Hayley has been invaluable to our team as she learned our culture and built her market knowledge,” said Darrow. “She deserves this advancement and we will all benefit from having someone with our company’s core values in mind as she sets the course for our future marketing efforts.”

Rawers graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara, earning a B.A. in business economics with an accounting emphasis as well as a B.A. in communications. She serves as co-chair of the Junior League of Chicago’s largest signature fundraising event and is also a member of Real Estate Finance Forum (REFF), a Chicago-based women’s business group focused on networking with other women in the industry.
