Millie Rosenbloom ... Leader in Chicago Real Estate
 

“In my 30 years working in real estate, I have never seen another broker care more about their clients than Millie,” said Joe Palmisano, Partner at Palmisano & Moltz, and Millie’s go-to real estate attorney for most of their careers. When you work with Millie, you create a relationship first with an expert, then an advocate, and finally, a friend.

Her client-first mentality, honed over the past 20 years, has gained her the reputation as one of the best of the best by her colleagues and clients, like Alex and his wife, Neha. “Millie and her team are top-notch; I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a home,” said Alex. One of Millie’s most memorable transactions, Neha was in labor for the duration of their negotiations on a new home.

​”I was continuously amazed by Millie's availability and the attention she gave us. Millie and her team were with us every step of the way, providing just the right guidance” Alex said. In the end, Millie secured the home for less than the couple thought possible, and 40 days later, they closed.

Many clients seek out Millie for her breadth and depth of experience, knowing that some aspects of real estate are only truly understood with experience and time. Having seen the market at its best and worst, Millie understands the future implications of current market conditions, and what it takes to get deals done. Millie believes that negotiating is an art form, having negotiated $1billion+ in residential sales throughout her career, and still continuing to perfect her craft.

“Real estate is in my bones,” Millie explains. “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 in the finished product. I learned early in life the difference between quality workmanship and a shoddy cover-up. I quickly picked up where money should and should not be invested to maximize an investment.”

Later in life, Millie was able to apply that product knowledge to development planning and pricing, which has led to relationships with landowners, investors, and builders. Coupled with her experience, Millie’s outgoing nature facilitates her creativity in bringing parties together and filling in gaps wherever needed.

Millie is a broker at Baird & Warner, where she has been number one in sales out of over 2,200 brokers for the past 10 years. She was inducted in the Chicago Association of Realtor’s Hall of Fame in 2014, and is routinely quoted and featured in multiple media publications and broadcasts, including CNN and The Wall Street Journal.

Actively involved in the Chicago non-profit community, Millie is a committee co-chair of the Brain Research Foundation and the Magnificent Mile Association. She is also a part of the  2nd Ward North Branch Advisory Committee. She resides in Lincoln Park with her husband, John Simon, and yellow Labradors, Mavis Belle and Mabel Mae.

"Millie is the best! This is our 4th transaction with her. She is great at helping us clearly define and prioritize the requirements that matter in our new home. Then she helped us target just those that match - no wasted showings. And since I don’t have her eye for value and issues, I LOVE the immediate feedback and guidance she gives after a showing. Takes emotion out of t and keeps us on the requirements and potential. And as always, she pulled out her full network to help us get in to the perfect house for our growing family. She’s the best!!!"

"Millie is the Queen realtor of Lincoln Park. When touring 20+ homes, her entire team was professional (and clearly respected by the other realtors). Her deep knowledge of the block by block breakdown of Lincoln Park and Lakeview and the relevant schools, was invaluable to us newcomers to the area."

"Millie is an amazing Realtor who made my relocation back to Chicago a breeze. She was patient throughout the entire process realizing there were several moving pieces. When we found the right home, she was able to help get me from contract to closing in 2 weeks. She also has some incredible connections, too."

"We choose Millie to represent us in the marketing and sale of our home because she came highly recommended, knew this market extremely well, and demonstrated that she was a tenacious and determined professional. The experience with our home exceeded our expectations. She was honest with us. She backed up every recommendation with fresh market analysis and research. She told us some things that we needed to do to get the house ready to sell, and she told us things not to do. When we were reluctant either for money or hassle reasons, she had ideas of how to get estimates so that buyers could understand what might be involved. She was realistic about the price. She has a very diverse list of contacts for work that needed to be done--quick response, excellent skills, and fair pricing. Millie works with a very professional team--there was never a time we didn't get an immediate response from her or the team. Yet, she stayed very involved with our transaction. She was hands on. I felt that together they did everything they could to make the process easy for us, and they were tireless in responding to our every question or request. The photographing and marketing that she does is amazing. Millie is very detail-oriented and particular. Listen to her advise on staging and preparing the property for sale. She knows what she's talking about. She will tell you the truth in a direct and respectful manner--from cleaning out the garage to putting flowers in a vase to replacing windows-- even if you don't want to hear it. She has so much experience that she comes up with creative ways to manage almost any objection--ideas that work for both buyers and sellers.She sort of helps you reach the right decision by offering information but without pushing. She is completely ethical with her customers and with the buyer or seller on the other side. She is forthright and honest n communicating information about the property for sale--whether is representing the seller or the buyer. She reads people very well and knows how to match a buyer to a property and a seller to a deal. She doesn't give legal or tax advise, but she knows a heck of a lot about the customers that her customers should be asking the experts. We had bought and/or sold more than 20 properties previously, so we are experienced--but we learned from Millie things we didn't know. Plus, she's fun to work with--spirited with a sense of humor."

"Millie sold my condo in Chicago in record time at a great price!! She was knowledgeable, and had recommendations on how to best stage it so it showed well. She also had a team of experts to recommend for cleaning and for the legal aspects of closing. The most important thing to me was having someone professional. When we got an offer, Millie made sure that the process went smoothly and quickly. Her team were also great keeping me informed at every step of the process. Thank you Millie!"
