@properties will open a new Chicago office on the border of Lakeview and North Center. According to @properties co-founders and co-CEOs, Thad Wong and Mike Golden, the new location is part of a larger expansion initiative that also includes soon-to-be-announced technology rollouts, key personnel moves and additional office openings.
“Heading into 2020, we were in a very strong position, and when COVID-19 hit we made the commitment to stay the course with our expansion, technology, marketing and training and coaching initiatives,” said Golden. “We are already seeing the benefits of this decision. Additional storefront presence in one of Chicago’s most active submarkets will benefit our agents and clients as the market recovers and moves beyond this current challenge.”
Located at 4100 N. Lincoln Avenue, in a high-visibility site on the northwest corner of Lincoln and Belle Plaine, the 4,000-square-foot office will accommodate 45 desks as well as conference and lounge areas. The office build-out will be completed by fall 2020.
“While almost every brokerage firm was downsizing during the last downturn, we made a commitment to grow,” said Wong. “It was a complete game changer for @properties because it attracted more agents and clients and ultimately put us in the best position once the market rebounded. Our strategy is similar today.”
The new Lakeview/North Center office will be managed by vice president of brokerage services and designated managing broker Amy Harris, who was been with @properties for over 17 years.
