WE ARE PROUD TO BE THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF SMOTHERS REALTY GROUP, AND WOULD LIKE TO SHARE OUR STORY WITH YOU
THE SMOTHERS REALTY GROUP STORY
In June of 1996, Joan Smothers left Coldwell Banker as the #2 Chicago Metropolitan Broker and the consistent #1 LaGrange Area Broker and opened Smothers Realty Group. It was her goal to be able to provide extremely professional service, superior market knowledge and unsurpassed consulting to people interested in the greater LaGrange Area. And to do it in a down-to-earth, honest and pleasant manner. To accomplish this, over the past 21 years, she and a team of exceptional, hand-picked Brokers built an organization of highly professional, ethical Brokers who have catapulted Smothers Realty Group to be the consistent leader in the market. Smothers Realty Group has been the #1 Real Estate firm in our market for 21 consecutive years.
To ensure our standing in the community, our focus has always been client service first, complemented by superb negotiating skills, people skills and aggressive marketing. It is our goal to meet your goals. To do that, we provide the most creative marketing to sellers and the most up-to-the-minute information on homes and current market conditions to buyers. Add to that the latest technology and the most personal client service in the business and we would make an invaluable part of your team.
As a long-time business leader in our community, we recognize our responsibility to participate and give back. The culture of Smothers Realty Group has always been to be very active in local charity and business organizations with groups such as The LeaderShop, H Foundation, Pillars, Brew Moon Festival and local organizations and events like the famous Pet Parade, West End Art Fair and the LaGrange Christmas Walk. (Smothers Realty Group was a founder of the LaGrange House Walk which benefited Pillars.) Many of our Brokers are members of the LaGrange Business Association (LGBA), and, of course, we are a member of the West Suburban Chamber of Commerce. Joan Smothers is on the Board of The LeaderShop and on the Board of the LaGrange Business Association and the Chair of its Non-Profit Committee.
To ensure you receive the highest level of service, as the Managing Broker/Owner of Smothers Realty Group, an independent firm, Joan Smothers has the autonomy to react quickly to changing market conditions that an independent firm enjoys, but we also offer the services that a larger, corporate firm has — such as relocation specialists, an in-house lender, consistent, comprehensive Broker training, etc.
