Erin Mills’ passion for real estate first developed several years ago during the construction of her first single family home. At that time, she had been a devoted Chicago resident for approximately eight years. After living in different parts of the city, she decided to break ground in one of her favorite neighborhoods – Wicker Park. This lively area of Chicago has everything Erin likes—great people, delicious food, convenient shopping, and lots of opportunity to exercise outdoors and walk her dogs! During the construction of her home, she enjoyed every aspect of the building process, from the architectural design all the way to the final finish selections. It was during this time that Erin also developed not only an interest in existing real estate, but in the sale of new construction homes, town homes, and condominiums. Her familiarity and extensive experience in this particular sector has fostered her ability to connect with clients who are interested in buying and selling a wide variety of properties.
Prior to beginning her career in real estate, Erin worked as a psychologist in the field of education. As an educational psychologist, she excelled at interpersonal communication and in the development of lasting professional relations. She also became an outstanding service-driven leader who made sure that clients successfully achieved their individual goals. Each of these skill sets is vitally important to what she believes is the key to every agent-client relationship – a long-term positive rapport.
Erin’s professional experience has helped her to lead buyers and sellers through the search process so that they can find exactly what they’re looking for. She spends a great deal of time with each client and shares as much valuable information with them as possible so that they can make decisions with ease and certainty. Her ability to effectively listen, communicate, and problem-solve is also what makes her a skilled negotiator. She believes that familiarizing yourself with every key aspect of a property and connecting knowledgeable sellers with informed buyers are the key elements to a successful home sale.
