Executive Vice President, SwakeGroup at Dream Town Realty
2012–2016 Top Producer, Awarded by the Chicago Association of Realtors
Amie grew up in Chicagoland before moving away to earn a degree with honors in politics from Princeton University, where she also played Division I softball and club rugby. Upon returning home, Amie earned her master’s degree in integrated marketing from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.
Previous to becoming a licensed broker, Amie worked at the Chicago Tribune where she managed marketing efforts for the Tribune’s $90 million real estate advertising division. This experience cultivated her knowledge of the Chicago market and proved a natural fit for her 2005 entry into the transactional side of the industry.
Amie wholeheartedly dedicates herself to each and every buyer and seller. Thanks to ongoing referrals from satisfied clients, Amie consistently garners the yearly ‘Top Producer’ sales award by the Chicago Association of Realtors; a distinct honor earned by only the top 10% of local agents. Amie’s sales record highlights that providing resourceful and data-driven insights, creative solutions, and exemplary service yields exceptionally satisfied clients—the true measure of success.
Amie draws inspiration from the city’s rich history and diverse/vibrant neighborhoods. Her intimate knowledge of Chicago and the North Side comes from living, working and spending time studying a variety of neighborhoods including Downtown, Lakeview, Lincoln Park, Ravenswood, Lincoln Square and especially Andersonville/Edgewater —where she currently resides and where she and her SwakeGroup team have achieved $100+ million in career sales.
Outside of work, Amie enjoys collecting old Chicago maps. She also owns and produces several large LGBT community events and is a Federal Club Member of Human Rights Campaign. Amie’s most important civic commitment is her ongoing dedication as an Executive Board of Director at Girls in the Game—a Chicago nonprofit that provides transformative programming for girls in underserved communities to become confident leaders and excel as ‘game-changers’.
