For over a decade, Erinn Hutkin worked as a news reporter, writing about everything from earthquakes and tropical storms to teenage drag queens, Elvis impersonators, and rodeo cowboys. What does that have to do with real estate? A legitimate question deserves a legitimate answer. Here it is.
Journalists possess multifaceted skills that translate to other professions…say real estate. My time as a reporter enhanced how I interact with people. It’s my job to quickly get to know you, listen to you, build a trusting relationship with you, and learn your needs. Helping you make the most informed and optimal decisions about your new home drives me. Therefore, I welcome the challenge of pushing people to retrieve whatever answers facilitate that decision making.
I’m a master at working both efficiently and effectively. Have a need I can’t handle? No problem. I’ll refer you to someone on my team. They’ll buy me donuts as a thank you. Everyone’s happy. Basically, it’s about you, not me. That only works to your advantage.
A Midwest native who’s lived everywhere, Erinn’s been in the Windy City since 2008, lured by a job at the Chicago Tribune. After being a bit nomadic by renting in Lakeview, Wicker Park, and the West Loop, she’s now a proud South Looper. She prefers red over white, sweet vs. salty, running over yoga, and beach getaways instead of ski trips. She also has the world’s smallest car that comfortably seats four – let’s take a drive around the city and find your next home.
