Chicago, IL, April 23, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Dream Town Realty, a leading brokerage for online real estate in Chicago, announces that Eddie Benitez has joined the company. Mr. Benitez is one of five new agents welcomed to Dream Town during the month of February. Mr. Benitez is a licensed Illinois Realtor who offers listing and marketing services to sellers and buyer representation for people looking to purchase properties in the Chicago-area.
Mr. Benitez is a native Chicagoan who grew up in the North Side neighborhood of Lincoln Square. He has a lifelong knowledge of the city and previous career experience in engineering and project management. Mr. Benitez's real estate services range from residential sales to investment transactions.
"As an advocate for my client, I think it's important to acknowledge the economic difficulties people are going through and to help them make the best and wisest decisions based on their personal situation," Mr. Benitez said. "The first thing I do with my new clients is sit down and have an honest conversation about what it is they want and feasible means of achieving their goals."
Through his past dealings with other agencies, Mr. Benitez said he has seen the challenge of pinpointing exactly what clients want and matching their needs with the inventory at hand. And, as an investment property owner himself, he is no stranger to being on the other side of the transaction. "The great thing about being with a company like Dream Town is the amazing network of agents and other real estate professionals I can collaborate with," Mr. Benitez explained. "We work together to cover all the bases and make sure every available property that matches my client's criteria is uncovered, whether it's on the market or not yet listed."
There are currently over 130 agents with Dream Town, which has been steadily expanding since it was founded in 1998. The firm now has three offices in Chicago and a top-ranked real estate web site. The brokerage prides itself on having a teamwork approach to business and a supportive corporate culture.
"What sets Dream Town apart in this industry is the way we help each other out and care about one another's interests," said Yuval Degani, president and cofounder of Dream Town Realty. "And it all really boils down to providing for the client. In banding together we are providing the absolute best resources, web site, response time, expertise, and all-around service available in Chicago."
Dream Town is known for its award-winning web site and advanced home search tools. The company has long been a leader in online real estate technology and continues to set the bar with proprietary web products such as the Interactive Map Search and Chicago Explorer. Dream Town's Interactive Map Search allows users to designate an area of Chicago in which they want to see homes for sale and locate available properties directly on an interactive Google map. The Chicago Explorer shows users what types of community amenities and points of interest surround a specific address. After a street address is entered the user can select different categories of establishments to populate an interactive Google map. The Chicago Explorer can be accessed here www.dreamtown.com/chicago-explorer.jsp
Mr. Benitez earned a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and is currently working on his M.B.A. He is the most recent of five realtors to join Dream Town in February.
