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. He was named both a "Top Producer" for Dream Town and The Chicago Association of Realtors every year from from 2017-2021. In 2021, Hadley was the #1 individual producing broker for volume of real estate sold at Dream Town. He was also featured in Chicago Agent Magazine’s “Who’s Who in Chicago Real Estate” in 2017, 2018, 2020, and 2021, and Crain’s Chicago Business Most Notable Residential Realtors in 2018 and 2019. In 2021, he was featured in Chicago Real Producers Magazine. There's no question why his colleagues have given him the catchphrase, "Rue Can Do!"
I used Hadley to both buy a new condo and sell a condo in the Andersonville/Edgewater/Uptown neighborhood. Hadley was a phenomenal agent. He guided me to get my current condo market-ready, and took care of all the details while my property was on the market. He was totally professional, gave great referrals to real estate attorneys and handymen, kept me updated throughout the sales process, and gave great advice. I would strongly recommend him if you're looking to buy or sell on the north side of Chicago.
Hadley always answered the phone or called me back in a timely manner to talk with me about any questions or concerns I had throughout the whole process. He reached out to me and kept me informed as well. Hadley had a vast knowledge of the market, which was especially impressive, being at a time when it was turned upside and confusing due to covid. I cannot properly express in words Hadley’s level of professionalism in all areas that comprise the selling of a house.
Hadley helped us list/sell our condo successfully this summer. He gave us guidance on when to sell, how to stage it, added social blast, had his photographer take beautiful pictures, and created healthy tension and competition in our sale that led to a great outcome. He coached us through the offer dynamics, managed our expectations, and provided great guidance throughout. He was a pro and definitely knows the market and what he's doing. 10/10 would recommend!
I can't recommended Hadley Rue more highly! He sold our property when so many had failed before him. It was a unique South Loop mansion that needed special care. Care that Hadley provided us. He was like a pit bull! Then he helped us buy our next home, and stayed with us every step of the way. He is the definition of Client Service!
Bought 3 homes with Hadley’s help. All were a great deal!
We have never before met or worked with an agent who was more committed to his seller's. From holding us back on "price improvements" before we'd fully exercised the market to working with everyone along the selling process, Hadley was amazing. He was terrific at keeping us informed at every step and at offering advice on how to get out of a house in time for a 45 day close (no small feat). He even arranged for lodging following close since it was in the middle of the week. While Hadley has a significant book of business, his high level of service makes you feel like you're his only client. We could not have enjoyed working with him more and would recommend him to anybody.
Iâ??ve purchased 3 homes with the help of Hadley. They were all excellent buy. One deal in particular was very iffy but with Hadleyâ??s help it went through. To say I highly recommend him would be an understatement. Patrick
Excellent communication, committed, knowledgeable and just a great person overall. Obvious passion for what he does & it shows.
Honest, market-focused, experienced and a huge advocate in my real estate transaction. What a pleasure!
Best. Realtor. Ever! It's simple. If you want a fully engaged realtor who goes above and beyond your expectations... then look no further. Hadley's advice, his experience in the industry, his caring nature was by far our best experience ever. Not only did he perfectly price our home for the market, but he basically told us to de-clutter a bit, leave for a couple of days, and he'll take care of the rest! And boy did he! The home was staged so beautifully and he handled the arrangements with our painter and housekeeper to have everything in tip top shape for the pictures and showings! We really couldn't have asked for anything more and were amazed as to how hands on he was. He even shoveled our walkway while we were gone! What realtor does that? Rue CAN doâ?¦ and DID! Highly recommend!!!
Hadley is a true professional, I could not have been more pleased with him and his team. Hadley was easy to work with, always responsive, and more importantly had us under contract within days. Itâ??s true what they say, Rue can do!
Hadley was very responsive to our needs. When issues arose he promptly addressed them. We had a great deal of confidence in his ability to follow up on potential buyers and finalize our sale at top dollar.
Hadley was extremely attentive, helpful and accommodating. He has been hands-on throughout the process to ensure most optimal sales outcome. Thanks, Hadley, for providing an excellent house selling experience.
First of all, I had heard of your reputation...mostly good from friends and neighbors. And then we met, and I could tell you were more than a realtor trying to sell my home. To be fair, my friends confirmed such. But then you sold my home for what you said it was worth...a good worth! The experience, however, was more than the good worth. It was pleasant with ready and available dialogue, with questions and honest answers and solutions. This was probably the most valuable trait...a solution realtor! Thank you, Hadley!!
Rue came through. Hadley found my wife and I the perfect home. His knowledge in this industry is priceless. I would refer Hadley to anyone and feel confident that he'll find you that perfect home.
Hadley had a clear, informed and successful plan on how to market and sell my condo. Hadley gave me great advice, before listing, which I followed. The photos taken looked great and the timing of the listing was on target. The first buyer who visited offered a deal and we signed a sale contract in under 24 hours. Hadley handled everything leading to the closing. Very professional, informed about the real estate in my immediate neighborhood, easy to contact, and on top of it. Highest recommendation. Thank you Hadley!
I did have great experience working width Hadley Rue . Great communicator,knowledgeable and detailed oriented , professional .
From start to finish, Hadley was on top of all aspects of the sale of my condo. He was very professional and super efficient, no stones left unturned. A pleasure to have done business with.
As absentee owners Hadley Rue fully represented us from listing to closing of the sale of our condo. Challenges we would have normally handled, Hadley gladly resolved. He is very professional, has a â??can doâ?? attitude along with an excellent understanding of the Chicagoland real estate market. Our condo sold in a short time at a good price thanks to his efforts. We unequivocally recommend Hadley whether you are buying or selling property. We believe you canâ??t find a better Realtor!
Hadley is a true professional, on top of every single detail. Hadley was quick to return calls, texts and emails. We were thrilled with the presentation of our condo listing, and are certain that Hadley's expertise contributed to the quick sale and closing on our property. We would absolutely partner with Hadley on any future real estate activity.
Hadley did a great job in helping sell my condo!
Hadley is professional, prompt, knows the market, is insightful and always has his clientâ??s best interest in mind.
Hadley was amazing from our first meeting to our closing! Our house was very hard to represent and Hadley stuck with us every step of the way. He also made purchasing our new place as easy as could be. Looked out for us and made sure we asked for all the things we were able to secure. We would recommend him 100%
It was great working with Hadley to sell my condo. During the challenges of the pandemic, his expertise, enthusiasm and energy got the job done! Hadley provided very helpful advice about rehabbing my property and real estate market conditions. He was always mindful to sell my condo at a price that I'd be happy with. He consistently devoted time to open houses on Sundays. Also, he was always easily accessible and replied to calls or texts promptly. Hadley put my interests first and I'm very glad I choose him as my agent.
It was a very professional experience, Hadley was always available for advice and answering questions.
Hadley doesnâ??t just know more than most agents, he cares more. He went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable with each phase of our complicated home purchase. He never pressured us, and he listened. I wouldnâ??t use another agent.
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??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
