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.

Shane Halleman
John Greene Realtor
About Shane

Raised on a small livestock farm in central Illinois, Shane Halleman acquired a deep-rooted work ethic. “On a farm, you don’t stop until the day’s work is done,” he says. “Just like in real estate, no two days are the same. You are challenged to prioritize the urgent tasks, but still get done the day-to-day chores.” Halleman, a broker with john greene Realtor (jgR), learned from spending 13 years in information technology that he was meant to work with people, not computers. “The part of the job I loved was working with users of our software all over the country,” he says, noting providing customer service and support and solving clients’ problems was a highlight. Assisting buyers and sellers in Naperville and the western suburbs, Shane recently entered jgR’s 100 Million Presidents Club. In 2014, he ranked No. 152 in Real Trends Top 250 Agents Nationally for Transaction Sides with 171 sales. Early last year, Shane showed his ability to adapt to markets outside of his typical market place by assisting an investor with the purchase and resale of 19 homes in Grayslake. “These homes were the remainder of a 59-home portfolio that Waste Management had acquired adjacent to one of their landfills,” he says, noting he had several concerns for both himself and the investor, since Waste Management had been struggling for five years to sell the properties. Undeterred, they set goals for time and sales prices. With a great team rehabbing the homes, they hit the timeline goal and exceeded the financial goal by approximately 50 percent. The project in both its before and after stages was featured in a local business magazine. “I have the ability to keep people calm in an emotionally fueled real estate transaction,” he says. “Usually it takes looking at the situation from both the buyer’s and seller’s point of view.” He gives first- time buyers patience and education, and sellers and move-up buyers a smooth, stress-free process. An outdoor person, Halleman enjoys golf and relaxing by the grill. He is also a licensed drag racer and has competed nationally for a number of years

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Elmhurst?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Elmhurst?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Elmhurst to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Elmhurst is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
