We love big industrial windows brimming with light, earthy timber beams that reach for the sky, exposed brick that rivals the Great Wall of China, and open living floor plans that could host Olympic Opening Ceremonies. If this is what you love about Chicago lofts, let’s just say that can we relate. ChicagoLofts is operated by The Mike & Jen Team at Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty. We are a full service brokerage team specializing in representing individual buyers and sellers.
Mike Hulett and Jennifer Liu have been working together since 2004 and have sold in excess of $300M in real estate. They were former business partners and owners of the boutique River North brokerage firm, Atland Realty LLC. The firm was highly diverse operating in many aspects of Chicago real estate: commercial sales and leasing, industrial sales, land acquisition, multi-family investment, as well as all aspects of residential sales. In 2008 Jennifer and Mike made the decision to join Jameson and re-direct the team’s focus to their core business specialty: residential sales. This includes individual buyers & sellers, multi-family investment properties, as well as builder representation and the development of new construction communities.
The result of this experience is a team highly focused on residential sales yet utilizing strategies and solutions learned in years of commercial, industrial, and investment sales. Very few agents can bring this level of experience and comprehensive industry knowledge to the table. This gives our clientele a distinct competitive advantage in nearly all aspects of the transaction.
While their experience brings critical value to their clientele, Jennifer and Mike feel the most value they bring is in their unparalleled commitment to their clients and long term approach to the industry. They receive over 90% of their business by way of referral. This approach can only succeed by keeping the focus on the client and their needs. As much as they love properties, exciting new listings, and the best architecture Chicago has to offer, their true passion is for the people they serve.
Team Languages: English, Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese.
