Top Producing, Prominent Residential Brokers, Barbara O?Connor & Colin Hebson, join Dream Town Realty
Chicago -- May 25 -- Dream Town Realty announces that Barbara O?Connor and Colin Hebson have joined the brokerage firm.
Both real estate agents have enjoyed impressive real estate careers and are considered to be among the top producers in the field. Together they bring over 100 listings with which they have formed The O?Connor/Hebson Group. The group also includes other agents recently recruited by Dream Town.
?This is as much a strategic move for me as it is a career one,? O?Connor explained. ?Dream Town has a very strong Internet presence and proprietary system, an unusually quick turn-around on its marketing, and an impressive pool of buyers,? she said, adding, ?this move will also afford me the opportunity to take on a management role which is something I?ve wanted to do for a long time.?
O?Connor is a long-time Chicago real estate agent who previously worked with Koenig & Strey GMAC (Real Living) and Baird & Warner. Her annual sales volume regularly hits the tens of millions and her area of expertise ranges from Northwest Side luxury homes to downtown condominium complexes.
Hebson was also with Koenig & Strey GMAC (Real Living) and Properties where he was consistently ranked in the top 1 percent of Chicago Realtors. He has represented many of the city?s premiere developments and been a leading real estate agent for over a decade.
Now, as a part of Dream Town, the newly established O?Connor/Hebson Group will specialize in large-scale residential development and high-end home sales. Also joining Dream Town as members of The O?Connor/Hebson Group are Carrie McCormick, Diane Scheehan, Nate Ryle, Joffre Colbert, Lloyd Smith and Nycholle Brown.
The company has already launched a marketing campaign for the O?Connor/Hebson Group and is re-branding many of the O?Connor/Hebson Group?s major condo developments, including 3033 N. Sheridan, a rehabbed high-rise in East Lakeview.
?Dream Town is delighted to welcome real estate professionals of such high caliber and distinction,? said Yuval Degani, president and co-founder of Dream Town Realty. ?I think Barbara and Colin saw the opportunity Dream Town presents to excel in the ever-important online marketplace and grow their brand in the Chicago area."
Dream Town?s top-ranked website was voted the ?Favorite City Brokerage Site? last year by Chicago Agent magazine. DreamTown.com beat out runners-up properties and Weichert Realtors, Frankel & Giles for the peer-nominated honor, which was determined by a poll of area realtors. The award-winning site receives thousands of unique visitors a day and its search engine is so powerful it drives property search functions for several other Chicago real estate websites.
Hebson and his family live in Evanston and is involved in Habitat for Humanity and PAWS. O?Connor and her family live in Chicago?s Budlong Woods neighborhood.
