Millie Rosenbloom ... Leader in Chicago Real Estate

“When you work with Millie, you get the best Chicago has to offer,” touts Gerald Fogelson, President of The Fogelson Companies and co-founder of The Marshall Bennett Institute of Real Estate Advisory Board at Roosevelt University, when he introduces her to speak at events.  Talk to her past clients, the developers she works with, or her industry peers, and you’ll get the same response.  When you work with Millie, she gets the job done, plain and simple.

The ‘no-stone-unturned’ philosophy Millie’s honed over the past 20+years in the industry has not only protected her clients, but has gained her the reputation of “iconic to the real estate industry” by her colleagues.  From knowing the exact stain color on a wood floor, to reading the full 200-page condominium rules and regulations document on behalf of her clients, to noticing that the neighbors two-doors down are doing some work on their house, possibly indicating they’re getting ready to sell, her attention to detail always works in favor of her clients.  Known for her integrity, her intrinsic negotiating skills, and her eye for presentation, it’s no surprise that Millie’s sales volume rates in the top 1% among over 14,000 brokers in Chicago. 

Millie has earned a laundry list of both local and national awards and recognitions in her industry.   Most recent, Millie was #2 in city-wide sales volume for 2015, selling over $75 Million that year. Millie was the 2014 inductee into the Chicago Association of Realtors Hall of Fame.  Millie ranked #8 in sales volume and #64 in total units sold in 2012 for the nationwide "Top 400 Real Estate Professionals," published by the Wall Street Journal and REAL Trends, Inc.  Additionally, she has held multiple leadership positions within the Chicago, Illinois, and National Association of Realtors.  However, her personal claim to fame is the way she conducts her business. 

“Real estate is in my bones,” claims Millie.  “I grew up watching my parents buy residential properties as investments, fix them up and resell them for significant profits.  They did the work themselves, I helped, and we all took pride and ownership in the finished product.  I learned early in life the difference between a job well done and a shoddy cover-up when it comes to finishes and workmanship.  I quickly picked up the spread between the dollars invested each.” 

Later in life, Millie was able to apply that product knowledge to development planning and pricing, which led her to forging relationships with land owners, investors, and builders.  Millie’s personality and outgoing nature facilitates her creativity in bringing parties together and filling in the gap of their individual needs.

Residential clients, developers, investors, and other brokers look to Millie for advice regarding market trends, product feasibility, floor plans, finishes, amenities, cost analysis, and pricing.  She has participated in the acquisition of over $520 million in land development sites and has procured over $500 million in residential development sales, overseeing each from inception through final sell-out.  Additionally, Millie has brokered over $1billion in individual residential sales. 

Whether it’s a buyer that’s looking for something that doesn’t currently exist, a developer that can’t figure out the right way to market his product to his intended client demographic, or a seller that’s simply not going to sell his property for less than above-market value, Millie uses her accrued industry knowledge, her experience as a former real estate brokerage firm President and CEO, and her natural instinct toward reading what people want and how they want to be treated, to make great things happen. 

Millie is a currently a Broker with the Baird & Warner Lincoln Park office, where she is number 1 in the company sales out of over 2,000 agents. She is routinely quoted and featured in multiple media publications and broadcasts, including CNN and CNBC's Power Lunch segment.  Millie is actively involved in the Brain Research Foundation and the Greater North Michigan Avenue Sign and Urban Design Committee.  She resides in Lincoln Park with her husband, John Simon, and yellow Labradors, Mavis Belle and Mabel Mae.  While leading a whirlwind life, Millie always reserves ample time to share with her extensive family network.

"Millie is very knowledgeable about the Chicago land area. She knows a lot of people and is very critical on the houses and the quality of the lots we have seen. She knows all the prices of the sold homes in the area and was able to give us valuable advice."

"Great experience with Millie and her team from start to finish. As a developer we value brokers that are well versed in the market and are able to find land, consult on what to build and ultimately sell out the building."

"Based on my experience as a former real estate agent, when we decided to buy a new home followed by selling the then current home, I knew how important it was to have an experienced real estate agent working for us. Millie immediately came to mind. I have long respected Millie for her extensive and varied experience in the real estate business, her ultimate integrity, and her undeniable tenacity.
Working with Millie on both the buy and the sell was a pleasure. She responded to questions and requests with sincerity. She assisted us in putting together an exceptional, first class team of legal counsel, mortgage consultant, home stager and home movers.
The buyer of our property decided to purchase our property without being represented by a real estate agent. When he ran into several difficulties that threatened the deal, it was Millie's expertise that brought the purchase to a successful conclusion.
Millie's joy in her work will serve well anyone who employs her as their agent whether buying or selling."

"Millie Roosenbloom came highly recommended from a co-worker and from the moment we had an initial conversation to when we closed we could see why. Millie is a great listener, she got to know us and what we were looking for in a home. She gave us great advice in terms of the market and things to look for in the houses we were visiting. After looking for a few weeks, we found a house that was perfect.

We could also tell she knows most of the agents of the houses we visited and that she is well respected. This turned out to be important because there were several bids for the house, and having Millie during the negotiations and bidding process definitely helped. She also has a great team and everyone was very responsive and helpful throughout the process.

I would definitely recommend Millie to anyone looking for a house or condo!"

"Millie Rosenbloom is the ultimate professional. She is very smart and can analyze situations quickly. She gives you the information and the tools needed to make the best decion for your family. This is so important in the context of any real estate deal because the client is never at a disadvantage if Millie is the broker. She has represented me in my last two transactions and I would certainly use her again."
