President, Dream Town Realty LGBT Client Services Division
After earning two degrees from Iowa's Cornell College in 1991, Todd Szwajkowski moved back home to Chicago and began a career in Marketing. He immediately made his home on the north side and has always taken great pride in being a son of this great city. Over the next thirteen years, Todd worked in marketing for a Chicago neighborhood redevelopment organization, an international hardware retailer and global marketing and promotions agency.
In making the transition to real estate, Todd brought a wealth of knowledge in marketing and project management - two skill sets essential to successfully managing real estate transactions. His first year in the industry ended with a commendation from the Chicago Association of Realtors for sales volume. And each subsequent year has established him as a "Top Producer" in the market. In addition to transactional business, Todd has added real estate development to his portfolio. Projects include renovations of both multi-unit properties and single-family homes.
The growth of Todd's business over recent years has been based solely on referrals - a testament to the priority he places on personal attention to his clients. For Todd, it's more than just a sale; truly understanding his clients' needs and maintaining an unwavering attention to detail supports a smooth transactional process and ensures that his clients' goals are exceeded.
This business philosophy serves as the foundation of SwakeGroup - the real estate team Todd established in 2007. He is emphatic that "Walking you home, every step of the way." is not just a tagline - but rather - a mission statement.
When not working, Todd indulges his passion for travel, architecture and being on the water. He is a regular supporter of Habitat for Humanity, the Human Rights Campaign, and The Lincoln Park Community Shelter.
