Recently I was asked by Chicago Agent Magazine why I felt our managing broker at Rubloff in Lincoln Park, Darlene Little, was "special". Which brings up a good learning opportunity for real estate consumers considering hiring a real estate brokerage.

The managing brokers matter.
The managing broker makes sure that sales agents like myself comply with license law. She will also provide advice for complicated negotiations. One thing I do regularly for clients is bring in the advice of many agents and the managing broker when pricing, marketing and negotiating. It helps to have a highly regarded, experienced and ethical professional on your side. I'm not on an island or in a bubble. I want to make an educated decision; collaboration helps to reach that end.
Thanks Chicago Agent Magazine for quote and sheding some light on managing brokers.
