About Hadley

Hadley is a Chicagoland native and member of the National Association of Realtors and the Illinois Institute of Real Estate Management. Building a strong and lasting relationship with his clients is the most rewarding aspect of his work. By putting the client first, along with bringing integrity, hard work, and a positive energy with him, Hadley ensures that when his clients get the keys to their home, every detail of the transaction has been met.

Hadley’s introduction into the real estate market stems from having owned and sold several properties over the years, all culminating in a deep passion for the work and the market. Because of this experience, he truly understands what it means to be on both sides of the table, as he’s intimately aware that each client has unique needs in his or her search for the ideal property.

Originally from the western suburbs, Hadley now resides Chicago’s North Side in the Edgewater/Andersonville area and has called this neighborhood home for nearly 16 years. When he’s not assisting clients with their real estate needs, he’s an active member of his community at a multitude of levels—from supporting local businesses to serving on various non-profit boards. He has extensive knowledge of both the city and suburbs and a wealth of resources to help clients find the perfect property suited for their needs.

Hadley has also held positions on several condominium boards over the years, including serving as board president for a decade, giving him a strong understanding of the importance of healthy operating associations and sound financial investments.

His passion for the real estate market, his unparalleled work ethic, and a commitment to building rapport with clients has enabled Hadley to succeed not only at Dream Town, but across his industry. In 2017, he was named both a "Top Producer" for Dream Town, as well as The Chicago Association of Realtors. He was also featured in both the 2017 and 2018 editions of Chicago Agent Magazine’s “Who’s Who in Chicago Real Estate,” along with a 2018 feature in Crain’s Chicago Business newspaper.  There's no question why his colleagues have given him the catchphrase, "Rue Can Do!"

What Hadley's Clients Say

Working with Hadley was a fantastic experience. He is a true expert in real estate market. From the early stages of listing the place until the closing he was constantly present with great advice and prompt answers to all my questions. Hadley always picks up the phone, no matter how early or how late, and knows how to make you feel like his number one client.

I would give Hadley TEN stars if I could; Hadley's service, responsiveness, and prioritization of my needs and concerns throughout my home-buying journey were nothing short of impeccable. I'm not just being effusive: specifically, there was never a time Hadley was unavailable to chat or answer my questions, and even before that, he was willing to schedule several showings when I called him out of the blue upon recommendation from a friend. Within 24 hours I was in his car being driven around Lakeview and Andersonville to see not only a property I had my eye on, but several others because Hadley ensured that I was seeing what was possible in order to compare and contrast the ideas I had in my head about what I wanted. When only one major concern popped up during the sellers' disclosure, he was immediately on the phone with me at 10pm on a Wednesday to talk me through my options and evaluate my concerns. In the final analysis of things, Hadley didn't just help me find a house...he helped me make a home.

Hadley was a pleasure to work with. As an investor, he always was making sure the numbers would work out. Hope to continue buying with him soon!

WOW - what a guy! Consummate professional - kind - gentle and caring for all my needs. He should be helping run Dream Town - very progressive - Thanks Mr. Rue

Hadley exemplifies the epitome of a knowledgeable, experienced, real estate broker. His exceptional handling and patience with managing the most challenging personalities and situations on behalf of his customer is phenomenal. Moreover, since Hadley is a man of integrity, he offers clients peace of mind when it comes to client communication, knowledge of the neighborhood and its laws, finding contractors, staying abreast of industry trends and more.

Hadley was a pleasure to work with. He was very flexible meeting with us On multiple occasions. He is also very knowledgeable about homes and shared many good ideas with us. From the very beginning of the sale and all throughout the negotiating and closing phase he was accomodating and professional. A true delight to work with.

It was a pleasure working with Hadley. After a year of sitting on the market with another agent and brokerage, Hadley got my place sold right away by working his magic. It's true what he says â?? Rue Can Do!

Hadley came highly recommended and he did not disappoint. He was accessible and quick to respond throughout the entire process. He did not try to push us out of our price range and showed us a great range of homes to find the right fit. He was very knowledgeable and I felt like he always came very well prepared with data on each home. Hadley was always punctual and worked with our schedule as well. I would highly recommend Hadley to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Home buying, especially the first time, could have been filled with headaches, anxiety, and confusion. With Hadley, the entire experience was enjoyable, seamless, informative, and easy. Hadley sets the standard for highest quality service and insights on the Chicago market. We found our dream place on our first trip and in 30 days, Hadley and his team of similarly highly qualified and experienced specialists took us through the whole process with a few emails, calls, and clicks. It's important to stress that seamless didn't come at the cost of personal service -- Hadley was never more than a call or text away, checking on us regularly and jumping in to take care of any question or request, with speed, style, and his calming smile. My partner and I cannot thank or recommend Hadley enough to any area home buyer. If you're wanting the best, it's Hadley. #RueCanDo

Hadley represented me for the sale of my property, and I highly recommend him to others as well. From day 1, he was in my condo helping me stage, organize, and identify quick changes to increase value and make for better showings. He had potential buyers in the unit in less than a week and had two offers back to me in less than 2 weeks. From there, he helped me navigate the sales process and made me feel as if I was his number one priority at all times. Overall a great experience working with Hadley.

Best agent in town! I bought several properties and I never work with anyone on Hadley's level. He went extra mile to make sure that I get best possible deal and great investment. He is also very responsive.

Hadley is the consummate professional. He worked tirelessly to achieve the optimal outcome.

Great, knowledgeable and very easy to work with. Hadley walked me through the selling process and answered all of my questions (including some I didn't think about). He also gave good advice on what to do to get my condo sold quickly and for a good price. Finally, as a seller living out-of-state, Hadley was always willing to go above and beyond to assist in getting contractors in to make the few small repairs & paint touch-ups that were needed before selling my condo. Highly recommended!

I hadn't moved in over 17 years, and I was in need of a lot of hand holding. Hadley took me by the hand and led me through the process in a friendly, professional manner. At each step of the process, he told me what needed doing, and what came next. He was always available to answer my questions (and I had a lot of them). He not only sold my house quickly, but also helped me find a new place. I would recommend Hadley highly to any of my friends.

Extremely knowledgeable and reassuring through the entire process

I was nervous about the process of selling my Wrigleyville condo because I was out of state and it required significant renovations and oversight that I could not handle myself. Needless to say, I had high expectations of any realtor handling the sale. Hadley not only exceeded my expectations in the sale of my condo, he took my expectations to a fancy dinner where he proceeded to convince my expectations that they needed to be more demanding. Itâ??s hard to explain how amazing Hadley is in a short review, so Iâ??ll do it by analogy. Remember when Harvey Keitelâ??s character, â??The Wolf,â?? was brought in to handle a messy situation in the movie Pulp Fiction? In my mind, Hadley is the realtor equivalent to The Wolf (but far more personable). Heâ??s smart, hits the ground running with the perfect plan to achieve the ideal result, executes it with awe-inspiring skill and efficiency, and everything is handled beautifully before you know it.

Quick sale and very open and honest about what is going on with the sale.

Mr. Rue did an exemplary job managing the sale of our condominium apartment, going out of his way to personally handle on our behalf any details or issues which arose during the process. He recommended a selling price very appropriate to the existing market. He was very influential in minimizing the time between list and closing on the property. I would certainly recommend Hadley to anyone seeking assistance with his transaction.

I had a great experience with Hadley! He was very attentive to all of my needs, made me feel very comfortable as a first time home buyer and truley went above and beyond!

Hadley is just the best.

My experience as a first-time home buyer was exponentially better because I had Hadley as my agent. It felt like I had a family member guiding me through what could be an overwhelming process. Hadley listened attentively to my needs as a buyer and had my best interest in mind along every step of the way. He was impeccably prepared, extremely knowledgeable and I always knew I was in great hands. It is evident that Hadley is passionate about his work and I am so grateful that I had such a competent and caring professional to help me buy my first home. I can't recommend him enough.

Hadley did an amazing job of finding us the best home in our budget. He was quick to respond to any inquiries we had and got us in for showings immediately. I definitely plan on recommending him to all of my family and friends.

Hadley is a very attentive agent who helped with all aspects of my sale and purchase. He is very knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to work with him.

Hadley went the extra mile to make sure that my wife and I found the right place for us. He was always available to answer any question we had, and we could not have asked for a better experience.

Professional, efficient and easy to work with, Thank you!

Simply put, Hadley was a Godsend. He sold my condo during a global pandemic, early in the stages of COVID-19 when it wasn't yet clear how the real estate market would respond. He navigated an uncertain environment with his superior knowledge of and expertise in the Chicagoland real estate market. All the while, he helped my fiancee and me navigate a stressful situation in light of the pandemic, and he also helped us to find and purchase our new home, which we love. I will partner with Hadley on any real estate transaction and I never hesitate to recommend him to all of my associates, friends and loved ones. We couldn't have gone through the process of buying our home, selling a home, and moving through COVID-19 without him. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Hadley was amazing to work with and is a true professional at the craft of real estate sales. I loved how the entire experience was a one-stop-shop because he's invested time and effort in networking with the right professionals in the industry to close sales on time. He helped me understand the process as a first time buyer and I would recommend him to anyone.

Hadley was outstanding. He was very involved every step of the way and provided a very personal touch. He found me a great new home that has exceeded my expectations. I will definitely recommend him to others.

Hadley did a great job, I couldn't have survived without him. He guided me through the process, kept me organized, helped me ask the right questions, followed-up to drive tasks to completion, and ensured I had an overall positive experience. I would certainly recommend him and Dreamtown.

Hadley is the finest broker that I have dealt with. His attention to detail is extraordinary and his zeal in representing a client is incomparable.

From the beginning of our search through the sale of two homes and the purchase of another, Hadley was completely, energetically, proactively helpful, always in informed and persuasive advocate for our interests and always a great pleasure to work with. We would recommend him to any family or friends seeking a broker--he is truly the best broker my husband and I have ever worked with!

Thanks Hadley for making the process so quick and easy. You're a real estate wizard!!!! ð??®

Hadley was competent, diligent, persistent and demonstrated excellent follow-through on all aspects of both the sale of my Evanston townhouse and purchase of my Andersonville house.

Amazing experience from the beginning meeting through closing. This was my best real estate experience to date.

Hadley went above and beyond during the entire process. We couldn't have asked for a better agent.

If it wasn't for Hadley I can say that it would not have been possible to purchase my first home. He offered many solutions and referrals that he brought together that made this all possible. I'm extremely grateful for all his hard work and due diligence. I look forward to working with him in the future and defiantly will be sending referrals. Many Thanks -Matthew

Working with Hadley was truly a great experience. Not only did he find us an off market deal, but he found us our dream home. He took our absurd wish list and somehow was able to find us a home that had it all! Would highly recommend using Hadley for any of your buying/selling needs. Shannon and Tim
