Proper Title adds new account executives with hiring, promotion

Palatine, Illinois-based Proper Title, LLC has promoted Dawn Wheatland to account executive from sales coordinator and hired Stacey Gore as an account executive.

“May was a record-breaking month for Proper Title closings, and our year-to-date growth is up 18 percent over the same time last year,” said David Zawadzki, vice president of business development at Proper Title. “Dawn and Stacey are industry veterans that exude enthusiasm and attention to detail. They truly support our goal of excellent customer service as our firm continues its rapid growth.”

Wheatland moves up to her role as account executive after joining Proper Title’s Oak Brook office last year as a sales coordinator. Her past experience as a real estate broker and an investor flipping houses lends to her strong pulse on the local real estate market. Previously, she spent nearly two decades working in sales and fundraising, including co-chairing a local non-for-profit, No Frills Fun Run that has raised more than $225,000 over the past six years.

“Dawn’s enthusiasm and her dedication to making every closing run smoothly have notably helped grow our presence in the Oak Brook market,” said Kim O’Donnell, vice president of business development. “We’re thrilled to recognize her efforts with this well-deserved promotion.”

Gore joins Proper Title after a 10-year tenure as a real estate broker focusing on Chicago’s Gold Coast and surrounding neighborhoods. As an account executive, she will focus on growing the firm’s business in Chicago’s Loop and North Side. Gore has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Kansas and a background in high-net-worth management.

“We’ve seen firsthand Stacey’s commitment to guiding her clients through every step of the buying, selling or leasing process, which is exactly the kind of customer care we provide at closings,” said Zawadzki. “Bringing someone on board with Stacey’s level of knowledge of Chicago’s luxury housing market will ensure we maintain our excellent customer service as our closing volume increases.”
