Holly Connors
@Properties, Get Burbed.
About Holly

Holly Connors is a founding member and partner of @properties. Since joining the brokerage in 2003, the award-winning realtor has helped propel @properties to its position as the leading real estate brokerage in Chicago, and helped hundreds of clients meet their housing needs and dreams in and around her hometown in northwest suburban Arlington Heights. Since 2015, Holly has become a top volume earner by selling over $30 million annually in Northwest Suburban residential real estate with an average market time of 54 days, which is over 25 percent better than the 73-day average in the region. The list price to sales price ratio on those properties is 96.5%, tops for the Arlington Heights area. Stats don’t move homes, Holly does. Known for her bluntness and transparency, Holly's dedication to her client's satisfaction is served by her an extensive network of esteemed industry professionals, such as contractors, attorneys, inspectors, and mortgage brokers. Building her relationships on the foundations of trust and respect, Holly's client-oriented philosophy creates a better structure for every deal. Any realtor can say the client is their main priority, as they should, but Holly proves it, as many agents can’t. Here’s what clients are saying about Holly: “To say that her professionalism and expertise is best in the industry is an understatement.” “...always available to answer questions in a straightforward and honest manner.” “Holly is professional, highly knowledgeable, and very responsive.” “Holly had great references for inspectors, attorneys, etc.” “Dedicated.” “She makes the process enjoyable.” “I would recommend her to everyone.” Based on testimonials and volume, Holly has been cited on Trulia’s Best of the Best for 16 years running, an honor bestowed on only one percent of realtors on Trulia. Featured in Chicago Agent Magazine and Top Agent Magazine, as well as a keynote industry speaker on delegation, 

Holly’s energy and enthusiasm have been recognized through several awards, including Chicago's Woman of the Year, Best Testimonial, Most Outstanding Achievement, among others. The recognition she most values comes from her clients, whose appreciation has led to her business being based almost entirely upon referrals. From first-time buyers to real estate developers, her clients are as diverse as the properties she represents. She leverages @properties’ comprehensive blend of state-of-the art online and offline marketing practices, and maintains close contact with her clients. Whether she is working with sellers to prepare their home for top profitability, establishing personalized criteria for buyers, or helping to navigate the area’s vast array of award-winning schools, she lends an informed perspective on the luxury home marketplace.
 Living with her family in the area where she completes 82 percent of her transactions gives Holly an insider’s perspective that you can’t get on a listing sheet or during a showing--after all, she’s a neighbor to the vast majority of her clients. Things like how long it takes to walk to the train, the best place for wine and tapas, or the ins and outs of permitting for special events are all part of what she brings to the table. Holly’s dedication extends to the community. In addition to her involvement with local organizations, she has been named “Woman of The Year” by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, serving as the chairperson for the society’s annual ball. She is actively involved with many children's organizations and has donated thousands of dollars as a corporate match to raise funds for A Better Community for District 25, which helps teachers and students in the community. She is also a member of the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce. She lives in the Pioneer Park neighborhood of Arlington Heights with her husband, Steve, and their two children, Emma and Brady.
