Chicago, IL, July 16, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Dream Town Realty, Chicago's forerunner in online real estate, announces that Lloyd Smith joined the company in May. He was brought into the firm as part of the company's newly formed O'Connor/Hebson Group. The group is headed up by two top-performing Chicago agents who also made the transition to Dream Town this spring. Mr. Smith will work out of the company's Lincoln Square location, which will be operational later in the year.
Mr. Smith is one of seven realtors who came to Dream Town this May with the O'Connor/Hebson Group. He has been in real estate his entire life (born into a family business) and practiced for years in Indiana before moving to Chicago.
"I was actually a real estate baby. Much of my family is involved in the industry or related activities, so for me it was a natural path to take," said Mr. Smith, whose father was an influential broker in Lebanon, Indiana and mother a prominent agent in Zionsville, Indiana. "I was always around real estate and became familiar with the procedures at a young age. I got my license when I was 18 and have a lot of experience under my belt now. I've seen the highs and lows of the market and know how to handle the endless hurdles associated with this line of work."
During his college years, as a member of Indiana University's real estate club, Mr. Smith was affiliated with a top-producing team that counseled buyers and sellers in all sorts of real estate transactions. He started his career at the firm his uncle owned and operated. He then relocated to Chicago and started exploring various brokerages in the area. His research led him to Dream Town, an innovator in web marketing and real estate technology. Mr. Smith joined the company in May under the O'Connor/Hebson name.
"Dream Town is the best there is. And I can say that from experience, I've seen quite a few places," Mr. Smith affirmed. "The marketing, the sales, the automated client management—-all of its services are unparalleled." View other exclusive Dream Town perks at www.dreamtown.com/careeropps.htm.
Adding to Dream Town's unmatched leadership in the business, Mr. Smith is delighted to work with the O'Connor/Hebson Group, overseen by Barbara O'Connor and Colin Hebson.
"Colin and Barbara have tons of experience, over 8,000 units sold between condominiums and different developments that they've worked on," Mr. Smith accounted. "They just have so much knowledge, you can't beat it. I'm fortunate to be a part of this right now."
Mr. Smith provides clients with buyer and seller services that range from listing properties to finding that first home. He also offers developer sales representation and is presently marketing large-scale condo buildings for the O'Connor/Hebson Group.
