Dream Town Realty Welcomes New Chicago Realtor

Chicago real estate brokerage Dream Town Realty is pleased to announce that Jessica Jennings Harris joined the company in December. Ms. Harris is the third of three new agents welcomed to Dream Town last month.

Chicago, IL, January 25, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Dream Town Realty, a leading online real estate company in Chicago, welcomed three new residential consultants in December. Jessica Jennings Harris is the latest addition to Dream Town's team of over 130 agents. Ms. Harris provides buyer's representation and listing services in the Chicago area.

Before she decided to go into real estate, Ms. Harris worked in media advertising for several years. There, she regularly handled million-dollar contracts and developed winning strategies to reach the largest audience for her clients. She transitioned through a number of positions within the field, including agency supervisor and account executive for a major TV network. By the time she switched careers, Ms. Harris was armed with expert negotiation skills and a capacity to navigate the highly competitive world of marketing/advertising.

"So much about my old line of work has prepared me for real estate," said Ms. Harris. "I am a confident negotiator who is not afraid to be aggressive to get my clients what they want. I also understand the importance of smart, strategic marketing to sell a product, or in this case a property. Many of the same concepts apply, plus I have Dream Town's top-ranked web site and outstanding e-marketing measures at my fingertips now."

Dream Town is recognized throughout the local real estate industry for its innovative use of developing technology and advances in online property searches. Last year, the company's site received the Agent's Choice Award for "Favorite City Brokerage Web Site" from the readers of Chicago Agent magazine.

In November '09, Dream Town launched a 4th generation site with a number of new features, revamped look, and specialized applications for mobile phones. The new DreamTown.com has the only consumer resource for "real time" home sales statistics of 175 individual Chicago neighborhoods, plus citywide and condo building sales info. The page is updated every 10 minutes with real data from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). It can be accessed at www.dreamtown.com/stats.

"I think more and more agents are looking for a company that can provide the cutting-edge technology and user-friendly web resources clients want," said Yuval Degani, president and cofounder of Dream Town Realty. "We constantly re-evaluate DreamTown.com to improve its offerings and ensure consumers are getting the absolute best product available."

Ms. Harris believes Dream Town's web site effectively complements the job of a realtor. "My clients want the power to look up properties and research neighborhoods, but they also depend on my expertise when it comes to pulling the trigger," she said. "DreamTown.com offers a balance between consumer control and professional advocacy."

Ms. Harris has lived in Chicago for the past 13 years. She originally moved to the city from the northern suburbs of Illinois to attend Loyola University, where she obtained a Bachelor's in Communications. Ms. Harris officially joined Dream Town's team of residential specialists in December '09, along with two other Chicago Realtors: Shiela Dietz and Ziv Bensira.
