Broker in Chicago, Illinois
While most real estate professionals are purveyors of the American Dream, Izabela Sloma stands as its physical embodiment. Over the course of her 10 years working in Chicago’s luxury real estate market, Izabela has established herself as the city’s premier provider of a comprehensive and elegantly refined home buying or selling experience. She has been marked as a Top Residential Producer by the Chicago Association of Realtors every year since 2010, and has accumulated over $200 million in total sales volume since 2007, placing her firmly in the Top 1% of all Chicagoland agents. Yet it is not the constant redefining of market standards that separates Izabela from her industry peers, but rather the unmatched dedication and client-first philosophy with which she approaches each and every transaction.
Izabela’s ascension to Senior VP, Sales at Jameson Sotheby’s International Real Estate was anything but traditional, having followed a path to success that would make Horatio Alger proud. Her story began, as many of the best do, at the fateful intersection of opportunity and initiative. After tiring of making just enough to pay the bills while working multiple odd jobs – from cleaning houses (not unlike the ones she now sells) to tending bar – Izabela convinced her then car insurance agent that she was the right fit for an entry-level position at State Farm. Her unmatched work-ethic and desire to succeed quickly payed dividends, as she leveraged the experience amassed during her rapid climb up the State Farm ranks to secure a mortgage broker métier. As a broker, however, she was frequently exposed to the frustrations many had experienced while searching for their new home; time after time, her clients seemed overtly stressed by a process that Izabela believed should be satisfying and celebratory. And despite the uncertainty of the market in the wake of the 2007 financial collapse, Izabela set out to manifest that belief into a reality.
