“Each of these brokers has established an outstanding record for delivering exceptional service to their clients and their community. That kind of professionalism and dedication are major reasons so many thousands of buyers and sellers across our region choose RE/MAX,” said Jack Kreider, executive vice president and regional director of RE/MAX Northern Illinois.
