Chicago, IL, May 26, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Dream Town Realty, an industry leader in Chicago's online real estate marketplace, is pleased to announce Kurt Felgemacher has joined the company. The brokerage welcomed seven new agents in March, including Mr. Felgemacher who started at the end of the month. Mr. Felgemacher's initial introduction to real estate was through the family business, which developed residential, commercial and vacation properties.
"I've always been around real estate because my father was a developer and an entrepreneur in the business," said Mr. Felgemacher. "He taught me the value of owning property and the ins and outs of all sides of the industry."
Aside from what he learned from his father, Mr. Felgemacher has an innate eye for investments. He has long been interested in Chicago real estate and watches the local housing market for deals, trends and opportunities to pass along to his clients. As an agent with Dream Town, Mr. Felgemacher provides both buyer and seller services. He offers professional representation, expert negotiating skills, insight to deals, and general guidance through purchases and sales.
Before getting his real estate license, Mr. Felgemacher had a successful career in finance and sales. His professional history includes working at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange as a derivatives trader and as a sales representative for a manufacturer. He dealt mainly with business-to-business transactions and complex investments.
"In addition to a sales background, I am a very hard worker," said Mr. Felgemacher. "I guarantee my clients total commitment to their best interests and I make sure their needs are met. My clients can count on me to follow up, not only with them personally, but with the lenders, home inspectors, attorneys and other agents involved in the transaction."
As part of Dream Town, Mr. Felgemacher's professional services are backed by the company's fulltime support team and proprietary software systems. The brokerage has seven managers, two career coaches, an on-site tech and marketing department, plus a network of 150 residential and commercial specialists. Through his new brokerage, Mr. Felgemacher notes he is able to offer clients more resources, a broader scope of expertise and an expanded web presence for their listings.
