Chicago, IL, June 11, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Dream Town Realty, a leader in innovative real estate technology and Chicago's online housing market, has added another veteran agent to its ranks of professional home buying and selling consultants. Frances Buerman joined the company in early April with nearly three decades of experience in the industry. Ms. Buerman is a Certified Exchange Specialist and a member of several trade associations.
Ms. Buerman is a native Chicagoan who began her real estate career in 1984 with the Chicago Title Insurance Company. During her tenure, Ms. Buerman was promoted to Transaction Coordinator, Closer and a position in Commercial Escrow. She later transferred to the Chicago Deferred Exchange Company, where she managed tax deferred exchange transactions for commercial and residential properties. In 2000, Ms. Buerman was made Senior Vice President at First American Exchange Company and eventually became Operations Manager for the organization's national operations before turning her sights toward the sales side of real estate.
"I got into the business at the age of fourteen, helping my mother and my sisters who all worked in the same office for a title company," Ms. Buerman said of her first encounter in real estate. "Since that time, I've transferred to different areas of the industry, including title, closings and real estate sales."
Ms. Buerman believes her diverse skill set and long-time familiarity of the market presents a vast advantage to Dream Town clients. "I've worked commercial and residential transactions and, because of my background, I feel I offer my clients the most well rounded inventory of solutions available to make their sale or purchase go as smoothly as possible from start to finish."
In addition to her knowledge of the Chicago marketplace, Ms. Buerman keeps close tabs on the Lake County housing stock. She provides expert buyer representation and listing services to every client, from the first-time home buyer to the investment developer. She is qualified to handle even the most intricate exchange transactions and her lifetime of education and practice in the field is a benefit to each deal she encounters.
Ms. Buerman is one of two realtors to join Dream Town in April. The company has shown growth in both number of agents and sales volume in the first part of 2010, and expects to continue the forward momentum through the end of the year.
"We are expanding, increasing our listings and looking to add another office in the near future," said Dream Town Realty President Yuval Degani. "We have a new group of top-producing Chicago agents with us now and we're launching marketing initiatives on several condo developments around town."
A full catalog of Dream Town's listings can be accessed on the company's Featured Property page at www.dreamtown.com/properties/chicago-lofts.htm. Listings range from condos and lofts to multi-million dollar mansions and single-family homes. Each listing has its own web page with property details, floor plans, photos, virtual tour, neighborhood info, a mortgage calculator to estimate monthly payments, and an interactive map powered by Google that shows what surrounds the address. The brokerage also has a Luxury Homes division that manages higher-end property sales and purchases. View luxury Dream Town listings at www.dreamtown.com/properties/featured-luxury-properties.html

She is currently working on a degree in Business Management from the University of Phoenix. View more information about Frances Buerman at www.dreamtown.com/agents/frances-buerman.html
