Cory Brown

Residential Specialist

Cory Brown transitioned into a career in real estate after a decade working in Human Resources for the technology and legal fields. Her experience as an advisor working with both managers and employees helped her develop a talent for handling sensitive situations, providing open, honest communication and sincere empathy—qualities that were immediately transferable to brokering real estate sales.

Cory excels at anticipating issues that can arise during a transaction and working proactively to keep these issues from affecting her clients’ goals. She also recently received her designation as a certified Real Estate Negotiation Expert. Above all, Cory makes it her priority to listen attentively, observe every detail, and devise a plan that will lead to a successful result. She understands that real estate decisions are among the most exciting and potentially stressful any person can make, and she puts forth the effort to handle their needs with efficiency and expertise. 

A resident of the city since 2007, Cory first fell in love with Chicago and its architecture while living in Streeterville and getting better acquainted with the real estate in the downtown area. As she explored the various parts of the city, she grew to appreciate its mixture of classic design and modern construction, from vintage millwork to high-tech features that can be found in single-family homes, condos, and every other type of property offered within the complex, dynamic market. Cory specializes in helping residential and first-time buyers, particularly within Streeterville, Lakeview, Lincoln Park, West Loop, and Tri-Taylor.

Outside of her real estate career, Cory volunteers her time with the greyhound rescue group from which she acquired her own two beloved greyhounds, Benny and Lulu. She also has a passion for creating art, making pottery, crocheting, and recently deciding to learn painting.
