RE/MAX Ultimate Professionals in Shorewood Plans Aug. 10 Grand Opening Celebration

Chicago, IL, August 05, 2012 --( RE/MAX Ultimate Professionals, 576 Brook Forest Ave., Shorewood, Ill., will open its doors to the community from 4 to 8 p.m. on Aug. 10 for its grand opening celebration.

The public is invited to meet Broker/Owner Kathy Dames and her RE/MAX Ultimate Professionals agents, who have planned an exciting event and will also provide tours of the office. Guests can participate in a live radio broadcast on WCCQ featuring the well known host Todd “Bossman” Boss; win some amazing prizes, including tickets to concerts and to Cubs and White Sox baseball games, and enjoy complementary food and beverages. There will also be a raffle of tethered rides aboard “Big Max,” the 75-foot-tall RE/MAX hot air balloon. The rides will be offered at dusk, weather permitting.

"We are thrilled with this office," said Dames, who has been a successful real estate professional for 28 years. RE/MAX Ultimate Professionals opened its doors in April and now has a roster of 11 agents.

“We have an outstanding location on Route 59 and a great working space for our agents equipped with the latest technology,” said Dames. “I've been serving this community for my entire career, but it’s exciting to be doing so in a new and more comprehensive way. We have all the resources here to help area residents with the full range of their real estate needs."

The office is located in a vibrant retail center anchored by two popular restaurants that draw a steady stream of patrons. The office also features a big-screen TV visible to diners walking to and from the strip center's restaurants. The TV runs a continuous loop featuring biographies of the office's agents, properties for sale and real estate buying and selling tips.

Dames reports the location already is having a positive impact, saying that agents have earned sales and listings that came directly from walk-in business.

"That is a great help today," Dames said. "We want people to know we are here and can serve all their home-buying and selling needs. My goal is to make this the best real estate office there is. Our location is part of that."

The new office covers 1,800 square feet and features high-speed Internet access, high-tech copiers and the latest scanners.
